Tear up your cool card

Tear up your cool card

Brené Brown once said “Cool is an emotional straightjacket.”

I spent the majority of my teenage years trying to be cool.
I spent way too much trying to MAKE myself enjoy snowboarding 🏂surfing 🏄‍♀️ drinking 🍷
But it’s just not me.

I’m not cool.

And I don’t care. I’m tearing up my cool card.

🌸I’d rather drink decaf tea than alcohol.
🌸I’d rather stay in on a Saturday night than go out.
🌸I’d rather tap dance than pole dance.
🌸I’d rather watch Tony Robbins than Love Island.
🌸I’d rather go to a café than a bar.
🌸I’d rather wear no makeup than get made up every morning.
🌸I’d rather start my own coaching business than get a high powered corporate job.

What’s cool for you may not be cool for other people.
And what’s cool for other people may not be cool for you.

Don't let someone else’s definition of cool define how YOU want to live YOUR life.

STOP TRYING TO BE COOL. BE YOU. 

Stay at home. Drink tea. Start your business. Do what YOU want.

Stop trying to please everyone else.

How to make a hard decision

How to make a hard decision

Hell yeah or no.

High performer and brilliant mind Derek Sivers invented a genius cure for overcommitment:

When you've got a decision to make, if you don't think HELL YEAH! at the idea, then say no.

If you say no to almost everything, then when a truly incredible opportunity comes along that makes you think HELL YEAH, you have the time, energy and space in your life to fully commit to it.

Too many of us take on far too many things at once to function at peak performance.
Say hell yeah, or no.

Why you aren't achieving your goals

Why you aren't achieving your goals

Are your goals spectacular, impossible and electrifying?

If not, don’t even bother. Boring goals yield boring results.

It’s why we can’t get ourselves to the gym 3 times a week, but we can climb Mount Kilimanjaro.
It’s why we can’t stay consistent on Linked-In but we can have six-figure launches. 

You’ve got to be inspired by your goals.

Before you set your goal in stone, ask these three questions:

  1. Is it spectacular? (Is it going to change your life?)

  2.  Is it impossible? (Has everyone already done it?)

  3.  Is it electrifying? (Does it make your whole body pump with energy?)

 Now you’ve got a goal worth pursuing.
