Negative Free Zone

Negative Free Zone

Every adversity carries with it the seeds of an equivalent or greater benefit.
— Napoleon Hill

Could you be positive for 7 days in a row?

One night last week I woke up in the middle of the night.  After lying there for a bit I grabbed my iPad to help me fall back asleep (yes, I know probably not the best option).

The first thing to come up on You Tube was a Tony Robbins audio from a few years back called the 7 Day Challenge Against Negativity. The funny thing was that it reminded me of his Infomercials in the middle of the night from years ago.

Before drifting back off to slumber his words deeply impacted me and got me thinking about the negativity that had been slipping into my life.

The next morning when I woke up I decided to take those words to heart and start looking at the sources of negativity that I had allowed into my mind.  I took with me these five keys that Tony recommended:

Key 1 - Decide to create the habit of what is right in your world
To do this he recommended taking the 7-Day Mental Diet Cleanse.  Basically it is this:  when a negative thought comes your way and it will, find within yourself a way to let it go.  Start to avoid the elements in your life that you have allowed in that are just too negative.  Keys 2 through 5 will help you with this.

Key 2 – Become curious instead of judgmental
Understand why others do what they do.  Notice what you do have in your life versus what you don’t have and what that person you might be judging doesn’t have. In other words, judge less and perceive more.  

Key 3 – Appreciate where you are right now
Do some critical thinking and allow the positive and negative to balance seeing the good in something that hasn’t been working for you and how you can change it.  Take an inventory of what is great and what isn’t.

Key 4 – Decide not to be perfect
Perfection is hard if not impossible to achieve – it is an ever-changing slippery slope that causes pain and negativity along with it. Especially, if you are continually beating yourself up for not being perfect.  Doing your best in this day is all you can ask of yourself.

Key 5 – Use the F word: Faith
Create certainty inside of yourself with the power of faith, going beyond fears by using your courage (remember we talked about this several weeks back).  Whenever a negative element arrives say to your self,  “This too shall pass.”

What I discovered was one of my big sources of negativity was getting myself in the habit for the first time in years of watching the “news.”  The constant negative spin from all sources was really getting to me.

What I realized was that I can’t change the news rhetoric, but what I could do was change my contact with it.  

Letting go of this “need to check in” on a constant basis allowed me to get my positive mind back and put me in a more enlightened Negative Free Zone.  Now when I do hear bits of news I know not to engage with the negativity.

Entering the Negative Free Zone requires taking the first step. I would love to hear your progress.  If you have the courage, write a comment of one negative thing you will commit to let go in the days ahead. 

As you move into the days ahead keep a journal and each day write about your positivity level and how best to create your unique Negative Free Zone. 

Be Positive! Be Free!

Vulnerable Obstacles

Vulnerable Obstacles

Vulnerability is the best measure of courage.
— Brene Brown

We each have the opportunity to stand in the moment to consider whether to move through the challenges life may present to us, or stay stuck in the overwhelm they bring. When we move away from the stuck place, we face the ultimate fear attached to being vulnerable.

Let’s face it - some obstacles presented by our challenges are small and some are gigantic.

In this weekly letter I have come to share many personal elements of my life with you because we all have stuff going on that makes us vulnerable – myself included. Every morning when we open our eyes anything is possible.

On March 30th after an incredibly valiant fight a dear and sweet little girl who became a cancer warrior, Hazel Hammersley, lost her battle. It was especially heartbreaking because she was only 7 years old.

Hazel Angel.PNG

Hazel had contracted Neuroblastoma, a very nasty cancer. I knew of Hazel’s journey because she is the grandniece of my dear and lifelong friend Laura, who was my knight in shining armor during our time together in high school.

Hazel’s family including Laura fought long and hard over the past 5 years watching the cancer come and go. What is really unique about their story is how open and vulnerable they allowed themselves to be beginning with Hazel’s initial cancer treatments when she was only 2 years old.

Sharing Hazel’s journey with the world allowed hundreds of thousands of people to connect with them online via social media and at the many cancer fund raisers they participated in and orchestrated along the way. The people they connected with gave Hazel, her family, and many other’s in the cancer battle so much support throughout this most difficult journey.

Hazel’s mother, Lauren, wrote many beautiful and detailed blog posts along the way to keep everyone informed.  Her final Facebook Live broadcast (because as she said, she just couldn’t write the words) a few weeks before Hazel passed showed remarkable bravery as she shared with the world that all hope was gone – the cancer had taken over.

You can learn more about Hazel’s journey on either Facebook or Instagram. My love and prayers are with Hazel’s very special family as they now cope with this huge loss in their lives.

While our own vulnerabilities are not always so dramatic, the fear they activate can stop us from fully living this precious life we have been given.

Taking action of some kind brings with it the much-needed element of courage. 

With a strong dose of courage in hand we can find the way to stop tolerating our need to hide out in the extreme discomfort of our “comfort zone.”

Heading into this week think where the fear of being vulnerable may have you stuck on any aspect of your life.  How can you take action today in order to engage the courage that you need to rise up and do what matters most to you and those who matter most to you?

Timing Patience

Timing Patience

Don’t judge each day by the harvest you reap but by the seeds you plant.
— Robert Louis Stevenson

Well here we are today with one quarter of the year down and three to go.  How is the year shaping up for you so far?

Now being that I am a Business Coach you might expect me to ask what your ROI (return on investment) has been in the first quarter of the year? However, my question is what is your SPI?  What are the seeds planted investment you have made in the 1st quarter?

As a gardener I love this time of year because of all the possibilities for this season of spring that pulls us into summer and then right into the fall. On a beautiful spring day, I can be tempted to start planting all kinds of seeds but here is what I know to be true planting seeds requires timing – in both gardening and in business.

The timing of planting seeds is important. Let’s look if I were to plant seeds that were not cold weather crops such as certain lettuce varieties and instead planted something like let’s say basil, a warm weather crop.

More than likely than not in Colorado we would have one of our infamous April snow storms with temperatures varying sometimes by 40 degrees and easily hitting the dreaded 32 degree mark.  While the cold weather crops could survive…not so much with the warm weather crops making my planting a complete waste of time and money.

To see the success with planting seeds we need to plant them when the time is right and then to know when to mulch, water, fertilize and compost.

Same is true in your business where should you be planting seeds right now and how can you further nurture the seeds you have already planted?

If you have read this far, then you can be sure that the biggest asset in planting seeds beyond the right timing is patience.  Something we can run low on in our instant access society.  Understanding your sales cycles just like the weather patterns is critical.

Stop and think about what business seeds you planted during the first quarter that will bloom in the second quarter?  What seeds are you going to plant in the second quarter that will bloom in the third and maybe even fourth quarter of this year? Or, maybe even moving into the upcoming year?

Timing, mixed with patience, and understanding can be such a blessing in our businesses and our lives.

Enjoy this rich and abundant time of year and have an amazing 2nd quarter.

We Are Warriors

We Are Warriors

A responsible Warrior is not someone who takes the weight of the world on his shoulders, but someone who has learned to deal with the challenges of the moment.
— Paulo Coelho, Warrior of Light

As entrepreneurs we must possess a warrior mindset in order to fully get our ideas out into the world.  Even the birds that have begun singing again in the morning do it with the mindset of a warrior – they accept challenges that matter most to them and their nest.

5 key elements that are needed by each of us in business to sing our song loud and clear:

  • Courage (Wind)
  • Creativity (Fire)
  • Customer (Earth)
  • Content (Metal)
  • Consistency (Water)

For those of you who have been reading this letter for some time, you know how much I have come to love the quest of the small businessperson, the entrepreneur.

The entrepreneurs who wake up every morning to create a better world for not only themselves and their family but also the people who make their business possible their customers – past, present and future.

I had a number of part time jobs along my way when I started working as a teenager.  My first official career job was a short, painful phase in 1976 the banking world.  I just didn’t feel connected and my days became robotic.

My career really became one I loved in 1978 when I started working for a small backpacking company in Southern California, Wilderness Experience.  Honestly, when I answered the ad for the job I thought I was applying to some kind of customer service position at an animal park in the wild of Southern California.

Quickly I learned about the passion not only of these two brothers who were creating great outdoor gear but the mom and pop retail shops that were selling their gear across the globe.  I fell in love with making a difference by offering a great product that came with great service.

Through that job I found another great love, Colorado.  I moved to Boulder in 1982.  Not long after, I started my first business, Business Answers, a telephone answering service.  I built the business to offer 50 other local small business owners the power of my staff becoming their staff and helping them to grow their business.

After 16 years I sold that business and began my journey of self discovery asking what I truly wanted as an entrepreneur. I knew my quest would always involve working with other entrepreneurs and I became a Business Coach. Seven years later I founded the Victory Circles in 2006. 

Many business challenges have come my way to bring me here to 2018. Each leg of journey has evolved me into a marketing warrior. The world is full of challenges and each challenge makes you stronger.  That is why I want to share my knowledge with you!

The messages we share can make all the difference in changing the world around us. Warriors get their message out in a clear and succinct way in a very noisy marketplace.

In today's toolbelt I am sharing an opportunity for you to come on a 9-day virtual challenge with me. However, only those who truly want to be a Marketing Warrior,getting their message out into the world in a bigger and brighter way should join in. This challenge is open to all marketing experience levels and has a very small cost for entry.

Wishing you a week full of strength. Acknowledge your wisdom and accept challenges that matter most to you.

Moment of Victory

Moment of Victory

My art is a symbol. It represents the moments where I have overcome the obstacles placed in front of me.
— Travis Ruskus

This past weekend I went to San Francisco to visit my son and celebrate 28 years of being a mom - Happy Birthday Travis!

For those of you have been a parent, you know that it is the greatest job in the world and without a doubt the hardest.

We have such visions for our children and all the things that matter most to us that we want to see happen in their lives and ours. What I know on this side of parenthood is that all those little moments along the way.

Every moment is fleeting and if we don’t make the most either with our children or others that matter to us in our lives, we won’t always have the chance for a do over.

The skill set that serves us best to enjoy those small moments, which can be as small as enjoying a great cup of tea together, is patience combined with presence.

The patience to know that in this moment this is something to pay attention to and the presence to be grateful for possibility in the process.

In one of my early Victory Letters I wrote about how much I loved watching Travis skateboard in our driveway when he was young. Something he would do over and over again until he “landed it.”

Today, I get the same enjoyment when I watch him rock balancein person as he takes the time he needs to make the balance happen, as he also tries to teach me too. ;)

Probably one of the biggest lessons I have learned in business is that this idea of celebrating the little moments is as important in our professional world as it is in our personal lives.

Stopping to celebrate the little milestones in your business just as you would that million-dollar moment of victory. By doing so this mindset allows you to enjoy today just as it is and not always waiting to enjoy tomorrow. Every moment can be a moment of victory!

Here’s to Travis for 28 wonderful years of moments in getting to be your mom.

Wishing you a happy spring that starts tomorrow! ;) (happy dance)

Time Well Spent

Time Well Spent

Look around me, I can see my life before me
Running rings around the way it used to be
I am older now I have more than what I wanted
But I wish that I had started long before I did
— Graham Nash

What are the best activities that you do with your time? 

What are the activities that waste your time?

Yesterday we sprang forward and actually lost an hour in the day with the coming of daylight savings time. The good news is spending that hour we will now have longer daylight at the end of our day.

What about the other time we spend during a given day? Those hours that make us feel like our efforts resulted in time well spent.  

Do you feel you are constantly wasting your time?


Here are some top time sucks I hear about from my Victory Circles members and solutions I have found during my time as a Business Coach:

Problem: I am spending my days doing tasks I don’t like doing.
Solution: Look for inefficiencies and outsource the rest.

Problem: I care more about others problems than they seem to. 
Solution: Assist as you can and then let go of the outcome.

Problem: I have too many people demanding my attention.
Solution: Prioritize what is important and learn to say no.


What is one time suck you could remove in your life today that is not serving you?

Today’s Victory Letter no doubt has been full of questions. My request in your answering them to yourself is to encourage you to look closely at your precious time. Doing so will help you to find the best way to spend your hours each and every day.

Here’s to time well spent in the week ahead! 


Weekly Toolbelt

Music is always a good use of time as it soothes the soul.  I have been a big fan of Crosby, Stills and Nash since my teens. Graham Nash wrote the song, Wasted on the Way, in which todays quote shares a part of the lyrics.  With that I thought it would be cool to share with you this 3-minute video of them singing this song. Love their harmony.  While they still have some work around their relationships their music continues to give such harmony.

Humble Courage

Watch and be aware of the opportunities to be humble.
— Helen Knight

Helen Knight is a wonderful spiritual leader I have had the honor to come to know over the last few years.  She shared today’s beautiful quote during the podcast we recorded together that you will find in today’s weekly tools at the bottom of this letter.

Helen was speaking about the 13 days and nights she spent alone on a mountain in South America.

As I write these words for todays victory letter it got me thinking about being humble.  What is it to be humble? It is a foundational state of mind based in gratitude. This allows us to fully appreciate where we are at each stage of our life.

An important benefit is the goodness and virtues humility allows us to then spread into the lives of others.

We each have so much to give each other and what better time than right now to do so?  The world needs your heart, spirit and the wisdom you have to share.

The question to reflect on this week…

Am I showing the deepest respect to the people and environment around me?

Find Your Power

Comment

Find Your Power

Passion is your backup generator when all your other energy sources start to sputter.
— Gary Vaynerchuk

Last week in spin class the teacher said three little words that packed a powerful punch. They haven’t left me. The words?  Find Your Power.

These three words are something each of us quite literally gets tasked to do each day if we want to live life to the fullest. Most importantly it’s about finding a clean source of power, one that fuels us in our own best way both individually and collectively.

As important as it is…“find my power” is a task we rarely put on our to do list.

Life has stuff coming at us from all directions. Some things we anticipate and other things that come out of nowhere.

In all that you do from the moment you open your eyes in the morning until you close them at night – what is it that propels you to be the best you that you can be?

One of the things that I love about online marketing (and why I have gotten so involved in it) is that the tasks required in the process challenges us to make our best selves shine.

A discussion came up at a marketing workshop I taught last week about creating your own content versus curating (sharing) other people’s content.

My answer was and is to find a nice blend always giving the creator of the curated content credit. In fact you can build strong relationships when sharing the creativity of someone else with the world.

You really do want the emphasis to be on creating your own special sauce as I like to think of it. When you create, your power shines because you are sharing a part of you – whether you are marketing or not.

In my opinion, the best marketers are the one's who are real and allow you to feel better from their message as opposed to feeling inadequate or pressured to do something.

Tapping into creativity is a major source of our power as human beings. One that is severely underrated and gets replaced all to often with never ending, brain numbing to do lists. While they can be important... they can also rob us of our power.

You also might be someone who is super creative and can’t turn off your ideas long enough to actually act on them. This can lead you to zapping your power as well. The key is prioritizing what is most important, what feels right and is something you can accomplish. Then put the other ideas on hold for now.

Remember creativity comes in all shapes and sizes from classical art, to cooking, to photography (one of my favorite mediums), to dance, to writing. Where do you let your creative essence shine that helps you find your power?

Here’s the best part … when you tap into your power that’s when you find your passion. And with passion fueling you – you are unstoppable.

Here’s to a week ahead of using your power source.

Focus on Courage

Focus on Courage

Every time I’ve had a bad performance at an event, I’ve come back more determined and focused.
— Shaun White

When we expect perfection without the practice and mistakes it requires, that is when procrastination can trip us up and stop us from ever getting into the game at all. 

One thing for sure in the Winter Olympics the athletes have once again proven in performance after performance that practice, practice and some more practice makes way for the ability to win gold. 

Some of the athletes have had their failures be part of their practice,failing along their way for the whole world to see. Snowboarder Shaun White is one of those competitors. 

He got back in the game after a number of defeats.  Even one just a few short months ago after a devastating fall that ended up leaving him with 64 stitches in his face.

That could have stopped anyone who was not dedicated to winning the gold.

Two elements required to achieve what you desire … 

The first element is focus.  When you watch Shaun’s final event at the 2018 games he was totally focused on his first run, lost some of the focus on his second run and fell… leaving him in second place. On his third run his complete focus returned and he won the gold!!

The second element is courage. Courage in fact allows for the focus because it removes the doubt that may be clouding our mind with negative self talk.  Courage pushes you past seeing anything but the result you need to get done right now in this very moment. 

The key is not thinking about the past or even the future.  It’s about right now as you mentally ask, “What can I do right now to give me the outcome I want to achieve.”

What could you accomplish out of the ordinary if you allowed your courage to keep you really focused?  What would you need to do to keep the unneeded distractions and negative self talk out of your way?

It’s when we get back up and do it again in our own unique way with focus and courage that we find our own version of perfection.  That “gold medal” that makes us a champion in our own minds eye.

What can you do this week to get you past your fears as you practice getting and actually being better at just one thing in particular?

Know I am here cheering you on and here’s some tools to also help you!

BOOK

The Travelers Gift by Andy Andrews

This was the coolest book that a Victory Letter reader shared with me (Thanks again CJ!).  I sat down on a recent Sunday morning and read it in its entirety.   It’s the story of a man who is feeling lost and hopeless.

Without money to support his family and any sense of purpose he journeys back in time to get insights with historical leaders.  From Abe Lincoln to Christopher Columbus he gains insights on the courage they gained to get them through their darkest hours. Because we all have our darkest hours – the difference is how we get past them.

Love, passion, and confidence

Passion illuminates the darkness.
— Danielle LePorte

What is it that you are most passionate in your life that fully lights you up?

The way you spend your time and the people that you do it with that bring you the greatest joy. 

This week we pay a special homage to love and the passion that brings it to life. A tradition that has been around since early Roman times that became what we now know as Valentine’s Day. 

Without a doubt I deeply love my husband, my children, extended family and friends and will be sending them valentines. My work however gets to the core of my being and calls at my heartstrings in its own special way. As cliché as it might sound – it gives me great purpose – especially when I light others up in the process. 

By honoring our passions both personally and professionally happiness can be ours for the asking – especially when we are lighting up the world for others in the process. 

Being an entrepreneur and small business owner is without a doubt one of the most difficult professional roles to take on and… one of the most fulfilling in my opinion when it comes to bringing your passion to life. 

Love, passion and confidence go hand in hand. When you are doing what you love and hanging out with those you love - confidence reins supreme because you are in your passion place. 

Passion is a process – it ebbs and it flows. What is most important is if we can bring it to life daily if possible. 

This weeks tools are designed to assist in finding your passion and keeping it working strong for you during the moments when you start to question if you are on the right path. 

Here’s to a great week of love and light ahead!
