“I just don’t want to do it anymore!” Kathleen said shaking her head. (That’s not her real name.) She wasn’t sure if the “it” meant her job or her relationship.

Kathleen was very successful at her job and worked hard. She had been married and divorced more than once.

She had gone through a lot. She had achieved a lot. But she wasn’t happy.

Even though she had everything she thought she wanted, something was missing. Did she feel more potential within herself she could step in to but wasn’t? Was there something she wasn’t dealing with? Was it that she wanted to feel more fulfilled, alive, free?

I asked Kathleen some radical questions, one of them being:

“Is your own fear, of reaching beyond what you know, holding you back?”

Some pieces began to come together in her mind. I could see her eyes become clearer. Now she was in that wildly uncomfortable place of knowing she wasn’t happy with something, and…

“Are you ready to do something about it?”

She nodded, “Yes.”

Kathleen engaged in my work and a new life for her truly began.

DARE YOURSELF TO LIVE THE LIFE YOU CAME TO LIVE.

Hold the vision, let go of the plan

Recently I drove from Toronto to Vermont where I was speaking at a women’s gathering. I’d been looking forward to this road trip because I was going to get to sleep in my car! Now this hasn’t always been one of my goals, but since I spent most of 2018 on my book tour...

Am I taking care of myself or am I sabotaging myself?

Am I taking care of myself or am I sabotaging myself?

“I used to think that was me taking care of myself!” my client said a bit shocked. She was referring to times when she felt tired and would hear this “friendly” voice in her head saying, “You don’t have to do that now. You can do that later.” It would sound logical at...

No time for habits or ruts

No time for habits or ruts

I held the fork in my hand. Where does this go again? I’ve been living here for a couple of months now and for a second I stood there in the kitchen—paused. You know those moments when you don’t have to think to put the dishes away? In fact, you can even think of...

Lost my courage that day

“You’re the poster child for courage. You live this every day,” Victoria said. She was interviewing me on Courageous Conversations about my life and my book: Open Me. I have done a lot of courageous things. I have faced fears of being alone and finding my way by going...
