Communicate Your Goals & Their Impact on Others

As much as we might wish the people closest to us (those living in our homes with us) could read our minds and our intentions… that just isn’t the case.

And as much as we’d like the people closest to us to support us in achieving our greatest dreams, oftentimes they don’t know what our dreams are OR how the changes in our actions will impact them.

In this week’s video, I share some thoughts on how to share with the people in your household about the changes you are making (so you can achieve your goals) AND how they can expect to be impacted by those changes.

Open and honest conversations will help you all have greater understanding of what’s going on. That will help you move forward with a lightness of heart that will help you keep moving toward your goals.

Ep043: Healthier Habits Starter Program – Debrief

In Episode 39, I shared my fears about a new program I would be offering to my audience. The program is called The Healthier Habits Starter Program. It is a 10-Day program to help people start adding one healthier habit to their daily routine. (To learn more or participate in this free program… visit www.donnadoyon.com/habits)

I had many doubts and fears about launching this program. The greatest fear was based on my insecurity about my own ability to attract people to attend. I was afraid I’d create this program (which I think is wonderful), but no one would participate.

Those doubts and fears tried their darnedest to keep me in my safe little bubble of dreams, protected from the possible cruelty of reality.

In this week’s episode of Reflections of a Recovering Ugly Duckling, I share what I learned during this roller coaster ride of emotional turmoil, demands upon my time, and dealing with tricky technology.

My head was spinning, my stomach was lurching, and my fists were clenched in terror.

One thing I know for certain… the person who finished the ride, was not the same person who climbed aboard that roller coaster.

The Big Leap

In goal setting, as in life, our mindset plays a huge part in our level of success. I’ve been reading the book “The Big Leap” by Gay Hendricks. It is a powerful read and has the potential to change lives if we let it.

In this week’s video I share an overview of the first couple of chapters. I cannot do this book and the messages justice, but hopefully I make you curious enough to check it out for yourself.

Ep042: Recharge Your Spirit

Have you ever been working, working, working and then hit a wall? Not literally, of course, but figuratively reached that point where you can’t go on. You feel like you can’t function anymore.

Sometimes we have the opportunity to step away from that wall to relax, regroup, and recharge our energy. Other times we do not.

In this week’s episode of Reflections of a Recovering Ugly Duckling, I share my recent experience with hitting the proverbial wall and how I bounced off it and restored my energy so I could continue my day.

NOTE: In the video I called this program the Healthier by the Holidays Challenge. I didn’t like calling it a challenge or focusing only on the holidays, so I renamed it. The content will be the same as what I talk about in this video.
