Ep050: Take Intentional Action


Occasionally, we need to look at the actions we are taking and our intentions with those actions. We need to look at where we are and where we want to go. We have to decide whether the actions we are taking are the best actions to be taking.

In this week’s episode, I talk about getting a lazy, late start to my day. As I moved thru my day, I somewhat processed my feelings of overwhelm, uncertainly, and restlessness about the path I would like to take in my business.

Perhaps these ramblings will help you take a closer look at your actions and your intentions.

P.S. I do think it was a bit more rambly than usual. HA HA

Ep048: All or Nothing? How About Something In-Between?

Too often people wait for conditions to be perfect before they take action.

They say things like, “I wanted to go on a bike ride this weekend, but it’s supposed to rain,” or “When Sally finishes her big work project, we’ll try to get the gang together,” or “I’d love to work on craft projects, but I just don’t have the space to leave things set up.”

In this week’s episode, I challenge listeners to remove “but” and “when” from their thought process when making plans to enjoy their favorite activities or relationships.

Ep047: When Motivation is Lacking

No motivation to act

Too many times I hear people talk about things they want to accomplish (eating healthier, exercising regularly, journaling daily, paying off debt, etc.) but they are waiting for that burst of motivation to propel them forward.

In this week’s episode, I talk about motivation, why we need to break free of that mindset trap, and how to move forward even when motivation is lacking.

If you would like to improve one or more aspects of your health (spiritual, physical, mental, emotional, financial, or relationships), but are waiting to feel a strong pull of motivation, I encourage you — No. I challenge you! — to participate in my FREE 10-day Healthier Habits Starter Program.

You CAN start living a healthier life today! BUT, you have to stop thinking about it, and start doing it.

Ep045: Update Your Sub-conscious Software

Just like our favorite technology gadgets, our brains are pre-programmed with coding that affects how we operate. Some of our coding is poorly written. It’s out-dated and doesn’t serve our needs or our desires.

What that means is that we may need to update our software!

This week’s episode was inspired by an interview with Julie Ann Cairns, author of The Abundance Code: How to Bust the 7 Money Myths for a Rich Life Now. In it, I share thoughts on updating our sub-conscious programming so that we can stop sabotaging our efforts for success. I also talk about limiting beliefs and where they may come from.

Be aware, though, that what I spoke about may NOT reflect what Julie Ann Cairns covers in her book. I only started reading it the evening before I recorded this episode, so most of the thoughts are mine. Hopefully they are not too far off from what she has to share. 🙂

Today I also introduce a new “After the Show” video offer to Patreon supporters of this podcast.

Each week I share another (hopefully) inspirational message to encourage and support you. If you’d like me to e-mail you a reminder when a new episode is published (every Tuesday morning), just fill in your name and e-mail below. I’ll take care of the rest.

Don’t Forget Your Goals Over the Holidays

In recent years, the holidays started starting earlier and earlier in the year. It can be easy to get caught up in the magic, miracles and madness of the holiday season.

Unfortunately, many times we lose sight of some important things in our life while we are dealing with holiday stress.

In this week’s goal setting tip, I remind you of something important that you probably forgot about as you get more involved in the holiday season.
