How You Handle THIS Determines Success or Sabotage

What do do when challenges come up in your business. “Take the first step in faith. You don’t have to see the whole staircase, just take the first step.” ~ Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. ===================================================================== Is it a common thing. You take a step in what you think is the right direction and BAM! All hell breaks loose. Or you get into an argument with your spouse. Or something happens that makes it challenging to keep going. This especially happens when you “uplevel.” You know what this is. Right when you say YES to going to an event or training, or right after you’ve signed up with a coach, or right when you make the decision to go to the gym four days a week. You say YES and things feel really stinking hard. This is the pitfall that a lot of amazing people make. They mistakenly think that the resistance they are experiencing is a “sign” that they aren’t actually supposed to do what they set out to do. THIS is what determines our success or a way to sabotage our success. But here is the truth: when the resistance come up, it’s the “sign” that you are EXACTLY where you are meant to be, doing what you are meant to do. It’s the sign that your intuition was (and still is) right on. It’s the sign that you are on your perfect path of living your legacy. David Neagle calls it “The Law of Opposition.” And boy is he right! I get it, it’s frustrating to be moving forward, taking action, feeling excited then WHAM, you...

Mastermind Bliss

Last weekend I had the honor of hosting my amazing Gold Mastermind clients for our third 2-day retreat. This is where my clients have the golden opportunity (no pun intended) to get together and have breakthroughs in their business and their mindset. These remarkable women focused on busting through limiting beliefs so they could take massive action in their marketing without the mindset games getting in the way. There is power in knowing that you are supported during the entrepreneurial journey. It takes courage to step into your purpose fully. These ladies are so brave. Every time I leave one of my mastermind retreats, my heart is overflowing with gratitude that I get to witness people making a...

The Labor Pains Have Started

Are you going to trust the process or try to stop the inevitable? It happens in three month increments. Every “trimester” the growing pains make you wonder if you can make it. Will you really do this? Is “it” really working? “It” can be your coach, your marketing plan, your clients, your financial goals, your time management…etc. This is what I notice in me and in EVERY single client and colleague I know on some level. About every three months I question if things are really working. I re-evaluate my path, I question my progress. Is everything on track? When this happens and you step fully into accountability, then this is GREAT. If you are avoiding accountability then this will result in blame, complaining, drama, unhappiness, defeat or fear paralysis. This time of questioning also happens EVERY SINLGE TIME I uplevel. Along with every up-level, comes a new level of accountability. There is a new level of the unknown and let’s face it, the unknown is scary at times. If you are in a fear storm then know that you can get through it. It just requires taking baby steps, even when you don’t feel like it. A fear storm can look like being paralyzed by fear so you don’t take any action or you keep yourself busy rather than being productive. A fear storm shows up like this: Instead of sending out the important emails, following up with someone, or making a sales call (gasp) you organize your desk, you go to the office supply store for “supplies (my personal favorite) or you make excuses that you need...

Angela’s Soul Vision

I headed to LA on Monday to spend two days with my business coach and mastermind. Then I headed to San Diego to do some training with Jack Canfield. It’s amazing to start my day with international networking…Jack has a gift of gathering people from around the globe. It’s a beatuiful example to me of how tenacity and authenticity attracts loyal fans. Here I am with Sean Smith who is staffing the Train the Trainer eventĀ  attend. Sean is one of my favorite people on the planet. He was a speaker at Ignite Your Spark last year and he’s a phenomenal speaker, trainer, coach and human being. I met Sean at a personal development training I attending in August 2010 and we’ve stayed in contact since then. The connections I make at live events is one of the biggest perks I experience from live events. I give myself a guideline of attending one live event a quarter outside of my home state to make sure I’m always learning because to be a great teacher, I must be a great student. Also, these live events are where I find great JVs, clients, affiliates, speakers for my events, events for me to speak at, in addition to rich, transformational content for my life and business. (Notice the palm trees in the background? Yes, it’s heavenly here in San...
This Shouldn’t Have Happened to ME? (Success Happens When You Least Expect It)

This Shouldn’t Have Happened to ME? (Success Happens When You Least Expect It)

Society says that if you go to high school, then on to college and just get a good job that that is about as good as life is gonna get. Well… been there, done that and I didn’t like it. I thought there was something wrong with me because wasn’t content. Why couldn’t I ever just be happy with a good paying job, paying the mortgage and if I’m lucky, saving up for a vacation every year? Surely, there was something wrong with me. Let me give you a snapshot of why, according to old-school standards, I never should have created any real success: I barely graduated high school. If it wasn’t for art and English to make up for failing grades in math and biology, I wouldn’t have graduated. I took the fast track through college and (barely) graduated with a BA in six years (yes, I’m being sarcastic about the fast track). My last two years of college I FINALLY found something that lit me up and since the university I was attending didn’t have the major I wanted, I created my own major. That was one of the first times I realized I was innovative and created a solution that was out of the box. It was the first time I can remember that I didn’t feel bad about not fitting in “system.” I overcame years of depression and an eating disorder. HALLELUJAH! I got my first “real” job in the marketing department and realized I LOVED it. I was finally good at something and became a bit of a workaholic. I made $26,000 a year....
