    Kick Your Limiting Beliefs to the Curb: A No-Bullshit Guide to Personal Growth

    You’ve got these pesky limiting beliefs, right? Those nasty little thoughts that sneak up on you and whisper, “Nah, you can’t do that.” Well, it’s time to tell them to piss off.

    What the Hell are Limiting Beliefs Anyway?

    First things first, let’s get clear on what we’re dealing with. Limiting beliefs are those bullshit ideas that keep you from reaching your goals. They’re like that annoying little sibling who won’t stop poking you. They’re based on past experiences, other people’s opinions, or even well-meaning but utterly wrong advice. And they’re sneaky as hell, hiding in the background, causing you to doubt yourself and miss out on opportunities.

    My Own Battle with Limiting Beliefs

    I’ve had my own run-ins with these little bastards. I had this one that kept telling me, “You’re not good enough.” It was like a dark cloud, always there, making me feel like crap. But one day, I decided enough was enough. I acknowledged that this belief was holding me back, and I kicked its ass. I changed my mindset, adopted new empowering beliefs, and guess what? It worked! I broke through that plateau and achieved even greater success. So, how do you do the same?

    1. Question Your Beliefs

    Start by asking yourself why you believe what you believe. Are your beliefs based on facts or just feelings? Once you’ve figured out where your beliefs come from, you can start questioning whether they’re true. More often than not, you’ll find they’re based on irrational fears or outdated information.

    2. Reframe Your Beliefs

    If your beliefs are still shouting at you after questioning them, it’s time to reframe them. Change the way you think about your beliefs to see them in a more positive light. For example, if you believe taking risks will only lead to failure, try focusing on the potential positive outcomes instead.

    3. Take Action Anyway

    This might sound crazy, but it works. Prove to yourself that your beliefs are bullshit by taking action despite your fears. Once you see that nothing terrible happens when you face your fears, you’ll realize they were unfounded. Plus, taking action will boost your confidence and inspire others to do the same.

    My 5-Step Process to Overcoming Limiting Beliefs

    Here’s my no-bullshit process for overcoming those deep-rooted limiting beliefs that have been messing with your life.

    1. Identify: Figure out what’s holding you back and where it comes from.
    2. Evaluate: Look at how often this belief has shown up in your life. Has it driven you to success or kept you on a path someone else wanted for you?
    3. Release: Now that you’ve identified and evaluated your belief, it’s time to let that shit go. Learn from it, face your fears, and move the fuck on.
    4. Reinforce: Make your new belief stronger by creating new habits and practicing them regularly.
    5. Take Aligned Action: Strategy results from aligned action. It’s time to create yours.

    Remember, you’re human. You’re not always going to get it right, and that’s okay. The key is to keep working on your mindset, just like you’d maintain your car. Without regular maintenance, your old beliefs will come back to haunt you.

    So, are you ready to kick your limiting beliefs to the curb and unlock your full potential?

    If you’re serious about personal growth and ready to unmask your true self, grab my workbook UNMASK here. It’s time to stop letting your bullshit hold you back. Let’s do this!

  • Harnessing Your Emotions: The Secret Sauce to Business Success

    Harnessing Your Emotions: The Secret Sauce to Business Success

    Alright, let’s cut the crap and get straight to the point. Emotions in business? Hell yeah! They’re not just some fluffy stuff you can ignore. They’re the real deal, the secret sauce, the magic ingredient that can make or break your business. So, buckle up, buttercup, because we’re about to dive deep into the world of emotions and business.

    Emotions: The Unsung Heroes in Business

    You’ve heard it before, right? “Emotions have no place in business.” Well, that’s a load of bull. Emotions are as much a part of business as spreadsheets and sales calls. They’re what make us human, and guess what? Businesses are run by humans, not robots (at least not yet). So, it’s high time we stop treating emotions like unwanted guests and start using them to our advantage.

    Emotions as Your Personal GPS

    Think of your emotions as your personal GPS. They’re there to guide you, to tell you when you’re on the right track or when you need to make a U-turn. Feeling good? You’re probably doing something right. Feeling like crap? It’s time to change something, pronto!

    Emotions as Decision-Making Tools

    Your emotions aren’t just there to make you feel all warm and fuzzy (or cold and prickly). They’re also incredibly useful tools for making better decisions. They can give you insight into your motivations, desires, and even warn you if you’re about to do something that could harm your business. So, listen to them. They’re smarter than you think.

    Don’t Be a Puppet to Your Emotions

    Now, don’t get me wrong. While emotions are important, you shouldn’t let them control you. You’re the boss, remember? Use your emotions as a guide, but don’t let them dictate your actions. It’s all about finding that sweet spot between thinking with your head and feeling with your heart.

    Know Your Emotional Triggers

    We all have things that trigger negative emotions. Maybe it’s a snarky email from a client or a sales call gone wrong. Whatever it is, knowing your triggers can help you manage your emotions better and avoid unnecessary drama. Plus, understanding your emotions can help you create a more positive and productive work environment. Win-win!

    Use Positive Emotions to Your Advantage

    When you’re feeling good, you’re more likely to make better decisions and take actions that align with your goals. So, harness those positive vibes and use them to your advantage. And remember, success in business isn’t just about making money. It’s about understanding people, being present, and always staying curious.

    Be Present, Be Curious

    Being present and curious is the key to success in business. It’s about understanding people’s points of view, even if they’re different from yours. It’s about asking questions, listening to the answers, and showing empathy. It’s about being a human, not a business robot.

    My Journey: From Logic to Emotion

    When I first dipped my toes into business, my mentors were all about logic and rationality. “Keep your emotions out of it,” they’d say, “That’s the ticket to success.” But let me tell you, that was a load of horse crap.

    As I navigated the choppy waters of entrepreneurship, I realized something crucial. Being emotionally present isn’t just important; it’s damn near essential. Understanding people, and really getting where they’re coming from that’s the secret sauce to success. And it’s got everything to do with emotions.

    The Evolution: From Business Consulting to Intuitive Mentoring

    That’s why my business took a sharp turn from plain old business consulting to intuitive mentoring. I started focusing on helping humans, not just businesses. The common thread tying all my clients together? Emotional wellbeing. It was the missing piece of the puzzle, the key to unlocking their next big move, their major decisions, their understanding of the world around them.

    The Craving: Emotions, Feelings, and Humanity

    Let’s face it, the world is starving for a bit more humanity. We’re all craving for emotions, feelings, and seeing people as, well, people. So, what’s the first step? Awareness. Be aware of your emotions and how they color your interactions with others.

    The Key: Stay Present, Stay Curious

    Then, keep your eyes on the prize and stay present. Stay curious. If you can do that, you’ll understand people better, make better decisions, and unlock a world of opportunities. It’s time to get curious about business, folks.

    The Bottom Line: Business is All About People

    Business, at its core, is all about people. And guess what? People have emotions. You’re golden if you can tap into how people think and feel. Being curious and understanding other people’s perspectives that’s the real key to success. When you can do that, the business world is your oyster.

    Emotions are Crucial

    So, there you have it. Emotions are crucial to everything in business. They’re not something to be feared or ignored, but something to be understood and harnessed. With practice, you can master your emotions and use them to succeed in any area of life.

    Ready to take the next step?

  • Embrace the Damn Change: It’s the Only Constant, Baby

    Embrace the Damn Change: It's the Only Constant, Baby

    Change is the only damn constant in life. That’s right, Heraclitus wasn’t just blowing smoke when he said that.

    Every single day, we’re handed golden opportunities to shake things up and make our lives better. But what do we do? We let those chances slip away because we’re scared shitless of change. We cling to our comfort zones like a baby to a pacifier. But here’s the kicker: life is moving forward, with or without us. If we’re not hustling to improve, we’re getting left in the dust.

    Heraclitus, I believe, says that all things pass and nothing stays, and comparing existing things to the flow of a river, he says you could not step twice into the same river.” – Plato.

    The Fear of Change

    “Everything flows and nothing abides; everything gives way and nothing stays fixed,” said good old Plato, talking about Heraclitus’ philosophy. But when the fear of change morphs into an irrational phobia, we’re talking about Metathesiophobia. This bad boy makes you feel like you’re on a runaway train with no control over your life. People with this phobia often live in the past and refuse to move forward, leading to a one-way ticket to Depressionville. This can screw up both their professional and personal lives.

    The Stagnation Station

    No growth or progress happens if we, as a society or country, give change the cold shoulder. The inability to change, progress, or grow can result in stagnation. And let me tell you, stagnation is about as exciting as watching paint dry. It’s a roadblock to realizing your full potential.

    The Choice is Yours, Pal

    Every moment is a choice. A chance to flip the script on your life. A chance to be the badass you want to be. An opportunity to make your life better. But we often let those moments slip away because we’re scared of change. We don’t want to leave our comfort zones. We don’t want to strive for something better. But we don’t realize that we’re falling behind by not changing.

    The Good, the Bad, and the Constant

    Change is inevitable. It’s a part of our lives, whether we like it or not. It can be scary, but it can also be exciting. It’s a chance to start fresh, learn new things, and grow as a person. While change can be difficult, it can also be a good thing. It’s an opportunity to improve our lives and make things better for ourselves and those around us. But not all change is good. Sometimes, it can lead to negative consequences. It can make our lives more complex and cause problems. However, even bad changes can teach us valuable lessons and help us to grow.

    The Tale of Mary

    Let’s talk about Mary. Mary was a creature of habit. She liked her routine and never ventured outside her comfort zone. But one day, she realized that she was just stagnating her life. She wasn’t growing or improving in any way. So she decided to shake things up. She started with small changes, like going for a walk or trying a new recipe. Then she pushed herself harder. She signed up for a dance class, even though she was terrified of dancing in front of others. She started working out, even though she didn’t enjoy being sweaty. Slowly but surely, Mary began to see results. She felt more energized and motivated. Her relationships improved. Change can be scary, but it’s gratifying when you finally take the plunge.

    Change is the only constant in life; the only way to be successful is by adapting to the changes around you. The best way to deal with change is to embrace it. Change can be difficult, and it isn’t always easy to adapt. However, the only way to be successful is by adapting to the changes around you. If you can learn to embrace change, you will be able to navigate life’s challenges easily.

    So, are you ready to embrace change?
    Are you ready to unmask your true self?

    If you’re nodding your head, then I’ve got just the thing for you. Check out my workbook, UNMASK.

    It’s designed to help you navigate the wild ride of change and come out the other side stronger and more badass than ever. So what are you waiting for? Get your copy now!

  • Unveiling Authenticity: Your No-BS Guide to Purpose Alignment

    Unveiling Authenticity: Your No-BS Guide to Purpose Alignment

    Hey there, you magnificent human! Ever felt like you’re just going through the motions, living a life that feels more like a poorly scripted sitcom than your own?

    If you’re nodding your head, buckle up. We’re about to dive deep into the nitty-gritty of aligning with your purpose and trust me, it’s going to be a wild, enlightening ride.

    The Uncomfortable Truth About Living Out of Alignment

    You know that gnawing feeling when something doesn’t sit right? Like you’re wearing a pair of shoes that are a size too small? That’s what living out of alignment with your authentic self feels like. It’s like trying to fit into a mold that just isn’t you.

    Your purpose isn’t some grand mission you need to discover. It’s simpler than that. It’s about peeling back the layers of bullshit, the lies, the limitations, and the programming to reveal the real, raw you.

    But here’s the kicker: we often live a life that isn’t ours. It’s a life shaped by the projections of others, a life that’s usually out of sync with our truth. But how do you find your truth? It starts with recognizing what’s not working.

    Let me tell you a bit about my journey. I’ve experienced many sides of wealth, from being poor to becoming a multi-millionaire to losing over 30M and slowly getting it back. I worked my life away for the next thing, not valuing where I was, especially my family. I told myself I did, but I wasn’t living for the experience; I was living for the ego. I needed to stroke it to feel validated or worthy. I was always working on the next thing, not because I was ambitious (although I am) but because I was constantly feeding the unworthy bucket I still held inside of me.

    The Three Tell-Tale Signs You’re Off Track

    1. You’re as Happy as a Cat in Water

    Your purpose should light a fire in your belly. It should make you want to jump out of bed in the morning, ready to take on the world. If you’re feeling as happy as a cat in water, it’s a sign you’re not living in alignment with your purpose.

    Remember, happiness isn’t something that just happens to you. It’s a choice. You can either wallow in self-pity or grab life by the balls and make a change. It’s not going to be easy, but damn, it’s going to be worth it.

    Unhappiness can stem from a myriad of things. Maybe you’re not reaching your full potential, or you’re surrounded by energy vampires. Perhaps you’re stuck in a job you loathe or living a life that’s out of sync with your values. Whatever the reason, it’s time to take responsibility for your happiness and make a change.

    2. You’re Stuck in a Rut

    Feeling like you’re stuck in a never-ending loop of monotony? That’s another sign you’re off track. It’s not about what you’re doing, but how you’re feeling. You could be in the same job, but if you’re not feeling fulfilled, it’s time to make a change.

    Finding your purpose isn’t about chasing after external validation. It’s about looking inward, figuring out what makes you tick, and then taking action. It’s about setting goals, creating a plan, and surrounding yourself with people who support your dreams.

    3. You’re Passionless

    If you’re feeling like a passionless zombie, it’s time to shake things up. Society has a way of shoving us into boxes, making us believe that success looks a certain way. But that’s a load of crap.

    Your passion, your purpose, your soul work – whatever you want to call it – it’s about aligning with who you truly are. It’s about breaking free from societal expectations and embracing your unique journey.

    Your Action Plan

    Ready to get your shit together and align with your purpose? Here’s a tip: Listen to what others say about you. Not in a self-conscious, “do they like me?” kind of way, but in a “what do they see in me?” kind of way.

    Your friends, family, and even your Facebook acquaintances can offer valuable insights into your unique genius. So, ask them. Ask them what they think your superpower is. You might be surprised by what you discover.

    But don’t just ask them what they think you’re good at. Ask them what your superpower is. Everyone has one, and when you discover yours, you’ll very often find it’s closely related to your passion. 

    Superpowers can be anything. Maybe you’re a good connector of people with a knack for matching complementary businesses. Perhaps you’re excellent at creating healthy meals, even confirmed junk-food addicts love. Maybe you’re simply a great listener who’s able to help a friend through a crisis. 

    Living in alignment with your purpose isn’t about finding some grand mission. It’s about unmasking your authentic self, embracing your unique journey, and living a life that feels right for you.

  • The No-Bullshit Guide to Finding Your Passion and Purpose

    The No-Bullshit Guide to Finding Your Passion and Purpose

    Buckle Up for a Journey of Self-Discovery

    Alright, humans, buckle up. We’re about to embark on a no-bullshit journey into the heart of self-love and self-discovery. Why? Because finding your passion and purpose isn’t about what you do—it’s about who you fucking are. It’s about becoming your internal truth while navigating this wild ride we call the human experience.

    The Hamster Wheel Problem

    The problem? Most of us are so caught up in the daily grind, the endless to-do lists, and the never-ending cycle of work, eat, sleep, repeat, that we lose sight of our dreams and passions. We end up feeling like a hamster on a wheel, going round and round but getting nowhere. Sound familiar? But don’t worry, there’s a way out of this rat race, and it starts with understanding the concepts of self-love and self-discovery.

    The Power of Self-Love and Self-Discovery

    What the Hell are Self-Love and Self-Discovery, and Why Should You Give a Damn? Self-love is the bedrock of a healthy, happy life. It’s about accepting and valuing yourself, warts and all. When you love yourself, you treat yourself with kindness, compassion, and respect. You forgive yourself when you fuck up, and you celebrate your wins. You give yourself the time and space to rest and recharge. And no, it’s not selfish. It’s self-care, and it’s damn important.

    Self-discovery, on the other hand, is about getting to know yourself—your values, passions, strengths, and weaknesses. It’s about aligning your life with your truth, which comes from understanding who you are at your core.

    Embarking on Your Journey of Self-Love and Self-Discovery

    The Journey to Self-Love and Self-Discovery: No, It’s Not a Walk in the Park. Ready to embark on this journey? Here are some tips to get you started:

    1. Kick Negative Self-Talk to the Curb: Stop saying shit like “I’m not good enough,” “I can’t do this,” or “I’m such a failure!” These thoughts only serve to hold you back. Focus instead on building yourself up and speaking kindly to yourself. If you’re struggling with this, you might find it helpful to read this guide on how to kick your limiting beliefs to the curb.

    2. Spend Time Alone: One of the best ways to get to know yourself is to spend time alone. Meditate, journal, or just sit with your thoughts and feelings.

    3. Connect with Nature: Nature helps us gain a deeper understanding of ourselves. Maybe it’s the fresh air, the beauty of the surroundings, or the chance to disconnect from technology and slow down.

    Discovering Your Passions and Purpose in Life: It’s Not as Scary as It Sounds

    The question of what you should do with your life can be overwhelming. But remember, your purpose isn’t about what you do—it’s about who you are. It’s about becoming your internal truth. Look back at the things you loved to do as a child, try out different things, and listen to your heart.

    Staying on the Path to Self-Love and Self-Discovery: Even When Shit Gets Real

    Even when shit hits the fan, you can stay on the path to self-love and self-discovery by remembering that you are not alone. Trust that the universe is conspiring in your favor, even when it doesn’t feel like it. Choose to see your beauty, even when it’s not easy to find. Remember that you are worthy of love and respect.

    The Benefits of Living a Life with Passion and Purpose: It’s Not Just Woo-Woo Talk

    Living a life with passion and purpose has real benefits. Studies suggest that people who live with a sense of purpose are more likely to experience positive emotions, including happiness, pride, and enthusiasm. They’re also more likely to persevere when facing difficulties and setbacks.

    So, what are you waiting for? Find your passion, follow it, and pursue it with everything you have. Only then will you be able to experience true happiness and satisfaction. Now, get out there and kick some ass!

    A Little Extra Help: Books to Guide You on Your Journey
