It's amazing how once you discover something truly powerful for yourself, the Universe drops more powerbombs in your path. 

The awesome video above by one of my new superheros - empowerment master, Marie Forleois a perfect example. 

It offers practical tips for overcoming fear of success and emphasizes the power of the subconscious mind in how our lives manifest. 100% relevant in my world... and perhaps yours too.  

Like so many others, I've been faced with overcoming my fear of success. It sounds ridiculous to admit being fearful of something we all want... or at least say we do. How can we be afraid of that? Easily.

Here are just 5 reasons we fear success:
1) we're afraid we'll fail 
2) we're afraid we'll threaten or alienate others
3) we're afraid we'll get what we want and it won't be satisfying
4) we're afraid we won't have time or energy for anything or anyone else once we have it (i.e., we'll have to sacrifice something major)
5) we're afraid we'll lose ourselves

Last week I acknowledged my very real desire to take this blog to the next level and ultimately make it my full-time gig. Yeah baby!

I've hesitated for a long time for many reasons - most notably that f-ing voice in my head guilting me with all the "CONCERNS & SHOULDS" about committing to another entrepreneurial venture... one that will take time and effort away from securing a  "safe and stable" job. 

When I put all that aside and really gave myself permission to look at my needs and wants without judgment, three things became undeniably clear...

1) For the first time ever, I'm clear and confident that this is what I want. HALLE-FRIGGIN-LUJAH!... THANK YOU GOD!!!

2) YES, I have real concerns about how I'll make it all happen... and that's ok. I know as I continue to get clearer, I'LL FIND A WAY.

3) NO, I'm not willing to put my dreams to bed just yet... not without a fight, anyway. NO GUTS, NO GLORY!

Sometimes we can't see why we're stuck. It's a shitty feeling that signals the need for deeper investigation. Uncovering the reasons I'd been holding myself back freed me up to get the hell out of my own way. How? 

Consider that your mind is like an iceberg, with just a small percentage living consciously, out in the open air. The rest is hidden in your subconscious, where it can only be explored by going down deep beneath the surface

Here at the surface, I'd been saying I wanted success for myself and I was taking action toward that end. But deep down in the depths of my subconscious, my beliefs didn't align.  

I'd been afraid to really admit that I was clear about what I wanted. That would then mean I had to go for it, and let's face it, that can be terrifying. 

But the biggest fear wasn't the commitment. It was that I wasn't capable or deserving. I feared I'd fail, or get overwhelmed and ultimately have to sacrifice everything else - friends, a love life, children, my sanity. Sound familiar?

At times the subconscious fears were so strong, I'd somehow sabotage my own efforts. That would leave me beyond confused and essentially hating myself. Not good.

I was either acting without clear intention, or worse, in opposition of my real intention. I was contradicting myself and sending very mixed messages to the Universe. 

Conscious or not, what we give out is almost always what we get right back...


What do you see for yourself in this conversation? What's lurking in your subconscious that keeps you from getting what you really want up here at the surface? 

Watch the video! Acknowledge what you really want and consider that your fears about getting there are the only thing standing in your way.

MOJO MONDAY: The secret to being happy.

We've all heard the phrase "being happy comes from within." 
But how do we access that when we don't yet have what we want or we have too much of something we don't want? 

The secret to being happy lies in...

  • accepting your present situation, however imperfect it may be 
  • taking powerful action to change what isn't working
  • being present as opposed to being stuck in your stories about the past or future
  • taking real responsibility for your actions & reactions, regardless of others
  • choosing to be grateful instead of resentful, loving instead of angry, generous instead of self-centered, & understanding instead of right
  • seeing what's possible instead of what's wrong
  • appreciating who you are instead of what you're not, and what you have instead what you don't 

or simply put...

We all have dreams.
We all face circumstances.
We all have a choice in the way we approach both.

If you look beyond your limiting beliefs and reasons, you'll find you have so much more power than you ever thought possible.

Choose love. Choose gratitude. Choose happiness.

Living Your Truth: 5 quotes of MOJO for your Monday!

Check out these quotes about LIVING YOUR TRUTH, something we all want in theory, but don't always choose in reality.

Most people hate confrontation. 
If you're human, chances are you've given in to something you were against because you were in people-pleaser-mode, wanting to fit in, or trying to avoid upsetting the balance.

Sometimes we need to pick our battles. But there's a difference between finding a healthy compromise and selling yourself out. 

It takes courage to be true to yourself, especially when you know your path or opinion isn't popular. We waste SOOO much time wrapped up in what other people think.

When you live for others (in the sense that you're not being who you really are), you aren't living fully. 

As much as your EGO might enjoy the superficial approval of others, you won't be grounded in your own truth and will never experience real peace and fulfillment.

We learn as kids that bullies are the ones with the insecurity problem. As adults, the negative opinions and judgments of others are often more subdued. They can slip through the cracks and into our psyche if we're not careful.

As Gandhi said...


So consider the opinions, advice, and guidance of others. Hear all sides and be open-minded, but listen closely for the truth within yourself.

You're the only one who gets to live your life. 
Might as well create one that's really true to who you are and what you believe.

GRATITUDE: The ANTI-depressant

LOVE this simple yet powerful quote by Karen Salmansohn

Mondays can be rough. Getting back into the swing of things after the weekend sometimes requires more motivation than we're willing to muster up, especially on a few short hours of sleep. 

I was beyond exhausted last night, but just couldn't fall asleep... overtired I guess. 
At 130AM, I gave in and started reading. 

One of several books I'm reading (and committed to actually finishing) is called Once Beneath The Stars

It's an incredibly moving novel from first time writer R.S. Lentin, based on the life of a star football player who gets injured and becomes paralyzed from the neck down. Heavy. 

I sometimes wonder why I'm reading something so sad. It's interesting though, with every page of agonizing detail, there's also something beautiful and poetic. 

Mostly what I'm getting is GRATITUDE... appreciation for the gift of simply being here, being able to move, walk, dance, sing, drive, run, hug, feel, feed/bathe/dress myself... I could go on and on. 

Reading the heartbreaking words of agony and frustration even has me appreciating the mundane things I usually complain about... like traffic, bills and even the cramps I've been getting in my legs at night.  

We tend to get so caught up running on the hamster wheel that we miss the big picture. 

We are SO lucky. 

Life is precious. It's a gift. Every single breath is a gift. Practice being thankful for that alone, and you will find peace in just being.   

Wherever you are in your day, your life, your state of mind... the fastest, surefire way to get in the zone is GRATITUDE... for the big things, for the little things, and for everything in between. 
So here goes... 

This morning I'm grateful for:
1-central AC
2-hazelnut coffee
3-the sun being out
4-my arms, legs, and internal organs working perfectly (or so they seem to be)
5-completing the 21-day meditation challenge without skipping a day!
*Check out this earlier list I posted a few months back, may spark something for you.

GRATITUDE is defined as the quality of being thankful; readiness to show appreciation for and to return kindness.

Give some, get some. Get some, give some. 

Have a GRATEful week!!!
