Why do we choose to Suffer?

An even more interesting question to ask, would be, "Why do so many successful people suffer?" If you want to stop suffering, you need to decide there is no longer room for it in your life. Make the decision that life is too short to suffer, and commit to only living in a beautiful state. Did you know when you negotiate with yourself, that you are actually stripping yourself of power?

Let's have a quick chat about your brain. Your brain, as beautiful as it is... is not designed to make you happy. It is designed to protect you, to keep you safe, it is designed as a form of survival. Because the brain wants to live in a state of survival mode, it is constantly looking for what is *wrong*. This is your Fight or Flight survival software... and it's time to go in like an expert hacker and hijack the crap out of your brain. Last time I checked... you weren't being chased by Lions on the regular, so it's time to upgrade your software!

We at least need to be able to notice when our survival software is running, so that we can step out of it when it's necessary. Something else to note, since we aren't being chased by lions, and tigers, and bears (oh my!), the new normal "dangers" that we are running from are thoughts... yes thoughts! Be honest, have you ever thought any of these?

  • What are they thinking of me?
  • Do I have enough money?
  • Am I doing well by my children?
  • What's wrong with me?
  • Am I enough?

It's a relief to know that these thoughts aren't yours alone... but knowing this isn't going to shift anything. More important to know and understand... What are your favorite flavors of suffering? Anger? Worry? Frustration? Resentment? Overwhelm? Stress? Loneliness? Depression? Sadness? If you can identify your favorite flavors of suffering you are able to better hijack your own software. It's important to realize that suffering begets more suffering (just as happiness begets more happiness!) and our goal is to stop the suffering as it arises.

What is *wrong* is always available, and so is what is right. It is all about what we choose to focus on. Take control of your mind so that your spirit, soul, and emotions can soar! ⠀

What will you take the leap on?

I wanted to stop in today to ask you a serious question. When was the last time you took the leap and did the scary thing? The thing that you really wanted to do but it shook you to your core...

The last few weeks have been ALL about doing the scary things for me... and taking even more action afterwards! Here are just a few of the things I have done recently that have really caused me to stretch, change, and grow.

  • Hired myself a NEW coach
  • Sent my baby to Charter school
  • FINALLY launched my coaching services
  • Opened up my VIP tribes to new members
  • ASKING for what I want

For years I have been wanting to launch my coaching services, and open up all of my trainings to oilers and biz babes outside of my direct community... and I FINALLY TOOK ACTION to do this! Was it terrifying? Yes! Did it feel amazing afterwards? Yes! And it still feels amazing!

Sometimes we put ourselves very last on our list, and forget to think about what we need to grow. We forget about what we need to help us stretch. We forget that we want to change. What is it that you need help focusing on? What do you WANT today? How can I help YOU? How can I SERVE you?

and most importantly...
