For those of you (us) who celebrated Hannukah, I hope it was a de-LIGHT-ful one.
For those of you (us) who celebrate Christmas, may it be warm and wonderful.
To all…may your New Year’s success be embarrassingly good!

Business yoga has worked wonders in my life. Professionally I think there’s no other way but the yogic business way…
Following our gut is where it’s at (it’s extremely overlooked in traditional society and very underrated).
We’re taught in school and even in our corporate careers that following our gut is not going to get you anywhere “good” or smart and that it won’t make you money.
However, if you’re clearly tied to a purpose and you’re clear on what your genius zone is and then I think following the gut is exactly where you should be. It’s the only logical next step after you’re clear on that brilliance…on your uniqueness.
And guess what happens when you’re working in your brilliance consistently? You make money gracefully and giddily. You’re more content, day after day (not because of the consistent income you can bring it but for all of it…for that AND for being able to work and live more authentically).
Next time you have that lovin’ feeling…that gut feeling, go with it. Don’t go with the “but” that wants to steer you away from your truth to terror. Enjoy your gut zone and be in the flow.
When things go wrong or don’t go all the way “right”, one of the main things that is going wonky is our belief.
• We can change our thought patterns
• We are as powerful to think negative thoughts as we are to think POSITIVE ones.
• We were meant to DO the things we can think up! (Dreams are not dreams…they are our reality that we haven’t caught up with yet)
• We are not our old stories.
• We can have a magnificent life.
How to do change the belief?
Focus on how you FEEL.
Think it. Think about what you want…I know you’re doing it already. GREAT.
Feel it. Feel how it will be sitting on Oprah’s couch. Literally. Be there.
Believe it. Now believe that feeling you just felt. The more you believe in this feeling…that it can *really* happen, the more that you will almost automatically do the things that will get you that reality.
Feeling is reality. Feeling creates belief.
Watching as Shuttle Endeavour is driven to rest at the CA Science Center
Seeing the space shuttle a week ago, up close and personal, was a unique experience.
I was struck by one major thing as I walked the exhibit ~ SO many of us come together in total awe to take in the unknown of others (of that which is outside of us) yet we seem to have such a tough time feeling that kind of excitement with our unknown.
Entrepreneurship, even if you’re tied to a clear vision, purpose and brand is an unknown…it’s the way it is. And to that I say ‘thank goodness, it’s most exciting that way.’
We can have a plan (it IS good to have one) yet the truth is that 9 out of 10x we’re surprised with the exact events, people and circumstances that come into our lives to make it all a reality. (btw, Your awesome surprises await). The quicker we accept that we don’t know “how” (and that we don’t have control over every single thing) the more we’ll be able to accept what’s coming that falls outside our limited thinking, perhaps, and the more we will be able to enjoy each day towards claiming the ultimate vision.
The next time you’re in awe of someone that has done something unique, “big” or out of this world just remember that others are waiting to feel that way about you.
You’re a teacher.
The more you drop the fear and move into what at least seems to be the right direction, the closer you’ll get to what you’re meant to be doing (in the way you’re meant to be doing it) and the more people you can affect with your bravery.
