“Success is a journey, not a destination.” What is success to you? Money? Fame? Lots of stuff? For me, success is simple. REAL SUCCESS means waking up in the morning with a “WOO HOO Attitude” and laying my head on my pillow at night saying “WOW, what a ride!” My marriage, my kids, my spirituality, my business, and more – they are all a part of my success. Success is really simple. My kids taught me that.
My kids are my greatest coaches. They remind me that I am a human BE-ing, not a human DO-ing. Kids are all about play, fun, and living ‘in the now.’ When I need to recharge, relax or unwind, my kids are my inspiration. Everyday I am a wife, a mom, a coach, a friend, a business owner, a (fill in your own title here)… and yes, I get caught up in it. So I stop, sit back and ask “WWMKD?” (What would my kids do?). And then…I sing, dance, swing, eat ice cream, (yes, it is okay!) and I laugh. It’s about being real.
“Many people lose their health to gain their wealth only to lose their wealth to regain their health.” That was me. I had pushed myself to the limit, physically and mentally. I knew that if I didn’t change, my world would change and for the worse. That is when I discovered my humanness was not my weakness but my greatest strength. So I stepped back and I took a breath. I had to become a priority in my life. Clean eating, no more C.R.A.P (Caffeine, Refined sugars, Additives or Preservatives), play time, me time, us time…it’s all a part of our successful system. It’s not about balance – it’s about harmony. “When there is harmony in the home, there is honour in the nation, and when there’s honour in the nation, there is peace in the world.”
My life is all about family. One of my greatest thrills is watching my clients quickly go from ‘fine’ to ‘FABULOUS.’ Parents are empowered to be people first and parents second. Kids and parents are inspired to set boundaries that keep them safe, recharged and feeling alive. Families are educated on real life with real systems for food, money, and communication! Family Success Coaching is not simply ‘my business,’ it is my raison d’Ãªtre.
“My life is not a journey to the grave with intentions of arriving safely in a pretty well-preserved body, but rather to skid in sideways, thoroughly used up, totally worn out and loudly proclaiming … WOW! What a ride!”
