You’re in good company because it’s the same for pretty much everyone these days.

At some point in your life, you are going to be faced with your biggest challenge. That could be right now during these pandemic times, or from a serious health diagnosis, financial difficulty, divorce or relationship split or the loss of your parents.
These moments in life can be the awakening that your true self has been searching for.
This is the start point and essence to personal mastery - simply put it’s the practice of understanding your thoughts, feelings and actions.
We’ve put together a 5 stage pathway that has very specific elements in to lay out a clear pathway for you to follow.
If you’re feeling lost, alone, frustrated or struggling then this is going to give you some perspective and clarity with where you are and why you feel the way you do.
In this episode I’m going to teach you this thorough, and proven roadmap of each of the 5 phases of the path to personal mastery that’ll show you your current strengths and help you identify and...
How often are you stuck with a decision to make?
Do you bounce between 2 options driving yourself crazy?
Maybe your default is to leave decisions to the last minute which either leads you to missing opportunities or letting people down?
Both of which hurt you most. The difference between the truly exceptional and the merely good is that the great say no to almost everything.
If the best say no, why don’t the rest of us?
The reason we don’t say no is that we are terrified it’s going to wreck things. And there are 3 things we typically do instead of offering positive and timely no’s.
I’m going to discuss these in detail and then offer you a strategy to teach you how to set your boundaries for a happy 2021.
With all that’s going on right now that is affecting each and everyone of us, how are you taking care of yourself?
Do you have a plan and schedule that you follow?
Do you know what practices help you most?
Or are you just freewheeling not knowing what to do with yourself and at the mercy of news feeds and convenience food before numbing yourself out on binge TV?
We’re so busy choosing sides and placing blame on others that we forget to take care of ourselves first. In order to help others (which I know many of you want to do), we have to remember that taking care of ourselves, both physically and mentally, is essential.
Ruining our mental and physical health doesn’t help anyone.
Being strong and leading by example is what can truly help others.
So today I’m going to share with you my top 8 self care practices that I do daily.
But specifically I’m going to tell you how they make me feel and why I make them a part of my day… to give you some...
This time of year for me is painful. I love Christmas, and it’s also a hard reminder for me of the people I’ve lost in my life - particular my parents.
I’ve come to learn to balance the love and grief and that’s what I want to share with you today. My story of how to gently open your perspective if you’ve had loss in your life to help you.
In particular 3 shifts you can make to be able to hold the pain and joy of grief.
How often do you catch yourself in a spiral of negative thoughts?
So how often are those thoughts going without you even being aware?
I don’t know about you, but my mind can switch rapidly from positive inspiring thoughts into uninspiring and negative ones.
Today is part 2, and so I’m going to discuss what to do with the remaining 20% of awareness to get a more unbiased and accurate perspective.
You’re going to be able to shift your mindset toward a little more truth, more positivity, belief in yourself and one of happiness and success.

Conscious Leadership Coaching Program - APPLICATIONS NOW OPEN: https://www.theconsciouslifecollective.com/conscious-leadership
In some area of your life, you are leading the way whether you're a parent, partner, coach, manager or yourself.
Leaders therefore are the ones that see opportunity for change before anyone else. We are the visionary, and we have the passion to help others see the new way.
Yet being a leader is often a thankless process isn’t it. The people we are aiming to guide are often a few steps back on the process of change. And change is uncomfortable, and we all resist it in some form or another.
This is why the path of a leader so very lonely. When we try and pull people to us, we are the ones creating resistance.
No matter how great or innovative our ideas are, it’s not the real driver to transformation.
We can be thinking about change for a long time, preparing etc… and then set the date in the calendar. But the reality is that you’re much further round the cycle than the rest of the people you’re with.
Understanding where people are in the cycle of change...
Over the past couple of years, there’s been a real recognition that you can’t do anything well if you don’t take care of yourself first.
So, why do people still talk about self care and selfish as if they go hand in hand? Is self care selfish?
The idea might be tied to the guilt people tend to attach to caring for themselves first. Those who look to care for themselves first to help those close to them later are often labeled as selfish, with almost everyone forgetting that to do the latter, you always have to excel at the first.
Let’s dive deeper into the concept of self care and selfishness, to figure out the truth once and for all.
Do you ever feel like you’re being selfish when you are doing something for yourself?
It might sound too good to be true, but there are so many tools available that can help us discover a deeper appreciation for our lives and the unique things that make us, us.
In our busy age of “Do more and be more,”...
