Our world is constantly changing. You read about the changes, see them on TV, we witness Diane Sawyer and Bruce Jenner share gender changing-change, we listen to talking heads on podcasts chant about change, and we are left wondering… am I supposed to be changing too??
The only constant we can count on is that things WILL change. New faces, new packaging, new branding, new CEO, new mantra, new motto, new time, new network, new head coach, new, new, new…As soon as we get comfortable and settled in…BAM…here come the changes!! And btw.. here’s the next technology change, is it time to get the new Apple watch yet? It's our choice to roll with change or dread it and be left behind. I like the roll with it and have fun option.
We know that things change and technology changes... We also see people change… they change their situations, their jobs, the way they make money, their marriages, their bodies, where they live and so much more.
But people are not things… As we change our situations, does that really change us?
The interesting questions to ponder are…
What would I change in me if I could?
How would that make a difference in my life?
Are you ready for change in your life?
Do you want your life situations to change?
Do you want to change you, and become the next level of you?
As a coach, I get to work with many different amazing people and get to see the many different reactions to change. While some seek and embrace change, others cling to what they know and are familiar with. Change is not easy. Then again neither is success. Both are worth working through because the worst pain of all is regret.
What's your natural inclination? Do you love re-inventing yourself, your business, your brand? Does the idea of a life make-over excite you or make you want to cover your ears and chant, "La, la, la, la, la, la???"
Hitting the refresh button on our lives is vital. Success is gained by developing new skills, new teachings, and taking action with a renewed passion. Being open to new ways of being, new methods of operating, new leadership techniques, and new avenues of traveling is vital to our growth, our journey and our success.
The best time to hit the refresh button is when you feel a case of the blah's coming on…you know what I mean, right? Nothing is WRONG, per say, but somehow nothing is awesomely right. Your mojo is dragging, your laughter is limp, and your creativity is doing the doggie paddle in circles. OK being eh. We don't want eh. We want all out, full in, soaking it up, sparkly, dancing like no one is watching type living! Are you with me?
Are you ready for a shift in your life?
Are you ready to hit the re-set button and have some fun re-inventing yourself?
Are you ready to really live out loud and create some new, fresh energy?
Are you ready to lead, teach and guide your team, business or organization to new, incredible heights?
To get your mind wrapped around this idea and have some fun, let's cruise down the path of who's done it before with sizzle.
We have the Queen of Reinvention…Madonna. Whether you love her and still have your black rubber bracelets tucked away somewhere or turn the station in disgust when 'Material Girl" comes on, there's no denying that the woman is brilliant at reinventing herself. Madonna is always daring, always on the edge, always relevant. She capitalizes and obviously enjoys the excitement and benefits of reinventing herself, her music and her brand.
Then there's the beautiful Jennifer Lopez who has morphed and changed her style, her vision, her music and her life many times over, always keeping it fresh and fun and creative. These are smart, creative, successful businesswomen who rock it at the top, but never sit back and count on their last success to move them forward. They move with the times & set new trends with their courageous and innovative re-inventions of themselves.
In the corporate world we have Apple who flirted with bankruptcy back in 1997 and then Apple got clear on their mission and made sure everyone from the CEO to the techs at the genius bar could articulate it in their own, authentic way. They re-branded, stuck to their mission and soared.
Just like people, companies and brands can rocket to the top, they can also suddenly find themselves as yesterday's news. It's all about being current . Being relevant. Constant growth and change.. Always, always adding value to your position, brand, title, work, team, organization, company or product.
There is not a corporate board in our country that meets and says, “How do we stay the same?” They meet and say "How do we grow this company? What’s right with us, what needs to be changed to lead the way?”
My joy and passion is coaching and guiding my clients to their personal highs. Together we are your board of directors. We go on an explorative inner-journey. Together there is discovery. We help uncover new ways of being, inspire new ways of leading, innovative ways of succeeding and authentic ways of moving successfully through the world… Growth is the result. Financial growth. Personal growth. Emotional Growth. As it is said in the Shawshank redemption.. “Gotta get busy living… or get busy dying.”
Many of us have found paths that we want to travel, found the "business" we want to grow, the "team" we want to work with or the "mission" we want to support. But something is missing. Our mojo is lagging and that sparkle we felt when we started out is slightly dulled. We're still in the game, but not quite jumping out of bed to begin our tasks at hand like we did a while back. What happened? Where's that fire from earlier days? Have you ever felt this way? I know I have. Then I would remind myself...
It's in there. Everything, and I do mean everything, we need to live vibrant, exciting, fulfilling, successful lives, is available to us. There is NO LACK of ways to succeed. What we do need sometimes is a fresh approach. Some new inspiration. Someone to hold our feet to the fire. Maybe a guide to open up new roads we didn’t know existed.
If you wanted a better body, you would take the steps to success. For me this was hiring a Personal Trainer. A coach for my workouts.
I have always been a runner and "worked out" but I never have hired a personal trainer. I figured I could get everything I needed off of You Tube, or take a class or two…you know, get there on my own. Then a friend stated the obvious to me. You're a coach. If you want something more, don't you think you should hire a coach? Duh. Sometimes we are so deep in the forest we can no longer see the trees.
So, I did my research and hired an incredible woman in my town. My trainer has shown me a whole new world that I not only love, but I am seeing results like I have never seen before! Why? Because she is focused on me, is clear about my goals and she keeps me accountable and always excited about what's next. She's teaching me things I never would have researched on my own. She's opening me up to new ways of thinking about my physical body and best of all…she believes in me and when she says, "Come on Jenna you can give me three more, I know you can…" Hot damn I give three more and I give it my all!
The value of coaching and investing in yourself is priceless when you realize that these investments pay you back in happiness, success and growth over and over again. My personal trainer is helping me re-invent myself physically. I am jazzed and love every session. Jane is my coach and her value to me is tremendous.
Do you want to find more happiness?
Do you want your life to be filled with passion? Do you want your mojo back? Do you want more money flowing into your life starting now?
We are here on this planet to do, be and have anything we can conceive in our minds. If you have thought it, you can create it.
It’s your time for your personal spring cleaning. Out with the old, in with the new. Right now I am offering up a fresh slate to push the reset button. To invent or re-invent yourself in a way that lights up your life.
My clients change their lives. They find happiness. They find peace. They find success. They find financial freedom.
Are you ready to commit to yourself? Here’s the thing, if you don’t invest in yourself, how is it going to feel to watch others succeed and wonder how did they do it and why not me?
This is the truest statement there is: An investment in yourself pays you the biggest rewards. Hands down, no questions asked.
The next success can be you and you deserve it. And I will help take you on that journey to get you where you want to go!
It takes courage to bring out a new you, but the payoff is the best thing ever! The options are limitless and the rewards are waiting for you!
Success is best served up chilled, with a twist of laughter and surrounded by friends (and a great coach!)
Here's a toast…to the bold, the brave and the re-invented! Cheers darlings!
