I can stay focused on the present and the future. My ability to avoid dwelling on the past is increasing. I understand that thinking about the past has negative consequences.
There is nothing left for me in the past. I am glad that I learned from my past mistakes and successes. That is the best thing about the past – the lessons it provides. I take those lessons and apply them to my present. Focusing on the past, though, leads to regret.
I choose to look forward. I spend five minutes each day to imagine the future I wish to experience. I know that a compelling future is the best way to stay motivated and positive.
I work hard in the present to create my future. I can only interact with time in the present moment. I make the most of each moment and look forward to enjoying the future even more.
I can let go of the past. Time spent on past regrets and mistakes lessens my ability to manage my life and generate success. I have more significant potential for happiness when I leave the past behind. I forgive those that have wronged me. I forgive myself for my past mistakes.
Today, I keep my attention on the present and the future. I am permanently leaving the past in my rearview mirror. I leave the past in the past and focus on the future.
What is one mini goal I can focus on and accomplish this week?
How can I enhance my ability to avoid focusing on the past?
Happy New Year my friends. This beautiful year is just a blank slate waiting for you to put your special imprint on it. One of my coaches sent me this, and I wanted to share it with all of you because this is the year of no excuses and no waiting for the perfect time. The Time is Now! I changed a few things to make it more relevant to our midlife mission, but I want you to know that I believe in you, I believe in us, and together we are unstoppable. Don’t let your past trauma, failures, and unsupportive family members keep you from having the best year of your life.
Enjoy and take action
I want to talk about your IMPACT.
IN MIDLIFE Life comes down to two things:
#1: Who did you have the courage and audacity to become?
Were you brave?
Were you genuinely excellent in everything you did?
Did you live with authenticity?
Were you following your own values and truth?
#2: How many people did you help?
How much value did you create?
How many people did you profoundly impact?
The bottom line?
YOU must believe in YOU.
Because the world needs to see your mastery. The world needs you to transform lives.
And the world needs you to TAKE ACTION…
…even when things are scary and uncertain.
Don’t give up on your vision and ambition.
No matter what.
GO ALL IN.
Commit to NO EXCUSES.
Because beneath every excuse is a FEAR.
But beneath every ELITE athlete, professional career woman and thought leader…
…is the strength to PERSEVERE.
Bravery is a muscle.
Creativity is a muscle.
Mastery is a muscle.
Use it or lose it.
So, if you want to 2x your IMPACT…
You need to 2x the investment in yourself. Your education. Your business.
When you know more, you can produce more, and you can achieve more.
STILL do not believe me.
Then start believing in YOURSELF.
Because you give yourself what you feel you deserve.
If you do not feel you deserve greatness, you will find ways to sabotage yourself.
So if you are not getting what you deserve…
Think about this:
Are you getting in your own way?
Are you struggling to be and do what you are made to do?
Are you spinning your wheels?
Maybe it’s time to give yourself what you TRULY deserve.
Be better. Be amazing. Be LEGENDARY.
Stop w-a-i-t-i-n-g for the perfect story. Or the “perfect” timing.
Other people deserve to hear your story. Other people deserve to have your help.
You were MADE for this.
Step up to the plate. It is your time.
And I would love to help. If you are ready to soar this year, then schedule your free Empowerment Call with me, let’s discover what is holding you back together. Problems do not solve themselves, but you have the solution. Let’s find it together.
When I start to work with a new client, one of the first things I like for them to identify is their support system. When you try to do something that you have never done before, you do not need to be pulled away from your focus by family and friends who do not support your vision for your life. When you change everything in your life has to change, the more you align your life with your goals the greater your chances of success.
That is not to say that they have to agree with you completely, but they should refrain from throwing water on your dreams by reminding you of all the times you didn’t quite hit the mark in the past. Sometimes, they might think they are helpful with comments like:
“You can lose the weight on your own.”
“Are you even trying? Try harder.”
“Just eat less and workout more.”
“Shouldn’t you be thinking of retiring instead of starting a new career?”.
“People your age don’t run marathons.”
“Is the pain that bad or is it in your head.”
“Your time has passed; it’s time to let the younger folks have a turn.”
These are just a few of my clients’ comments, and I have heard when we confided to our closest confidants about our plans to make changes in our lives. When they recall the comments, many clients break down in tears.
Whether it is losing weight, starting a new career path, or pursuing your purpose, and maybe your new career path is your purpose. You must create a support system that supports you unconditionally, holds you accountable when you don’t believe you can do it, and loves you no matter how many times you must start over.
Anyone who does not fall in step with your plans is dead weight, and you should eliminate them immediately. You do not have to cut them out of your life entirely if you do not want too, just do not let them into your inner circle.
Make a list of three people you can count on to support your journey towards a new you.
Like so many Americans, I found myself shouting and celebrating the election of Joe Biden as our new President-elect and Kamala Harris as our Vice President-elect. After the most intense election cycle I have ever experienced, I was glad to see it come to an end.
As each news outlet proclaimed the dynamic duo the winner, I watched interview after interview, parents of young children and young college students extolled what this historic election meant to them.
While I am ecstatic that my grandchildren will see someone who looks like them in the White House. I found myself thinking about what it would mean to have a woman in mid-life become the most powerful woman in our country, in the world. And I got even more excited. Not only did she shatter the glass ceiling, but she crushed all our excuses.
Too often in my coaching practice, I meet women in midlife who have given up on themselves and their dreams. They genuinely believe that the life they have is all they are entitled to; that simply is not the truth.
Kamala’s election proves to us that we can continue to dream and fight for ourselves after fifty. We still have a future. But many of us are so committed to living in our past that we end up living our lives backward. That must end.
I believe her election is a wake-up call for all us midlife women to reawaken to the possibility of creating the life we want. Will you answer the call? It is time to dust off those dreams and recalibrate them; they will be the foundation for your new future.
I must be honest with you, I had to check myself. I have found myself crossing off goals this year and labeling them as impossible to achieve. Mentally, I was drained and unresponsive. But this election result has re-ignited a fire in me, and I hope it does the same for you.
The world may have written off as obsolete, what they do not realize is that we are the classic models that never go out of style.
There is someone out there waiting for you to become the woman you were called to be; there are souls tied to our dreams; we may never meet them, but they will find us, and as our life changes, we will give them the power to change theirs. Look at Kamala; she did what no one in this country believed was possible. Let her be your beacon until you are strong enough to become your own.
You have the power to create the life you want to live. Our families, our communities, the world, is looking to us to be the light on the hill. I believe in you; I believe in us! It is time you stop focusing on your losses and start celebrating your wins. Kamala is calling, will you answer?
