February Events Update

A week into February and I am  just getting this updated…probably because i have been on my ass with Walking Pneumonia!  It sucked, but it’s over now and I’m not going to give it any more energy – it sucked enough.

So let’s look at what we have coming up for you in February and beyond that can help you shape you in to the person you want to be living the life you want to love.

 February: 

Navigating Major Transition, February 9 – Tune in to KGAN CBS2/Fox 28 during the morning show and you’ll see yours truly on air talking about navigating major change.  It can be tough, but I have a couple of tools to help you map and navigate that change in your life!  If you miss it, watch  the No Limits Life Coaching  Facebook page for links to resources you can sign up to receive that will guide you through the process for yourself!

For the activist minded!   A Post Card Party and Community Discussion with Iowa State Senator Rob Hogg, February 12 –  

  • Join us for a community discussion with state senator Rob Hogg about the most effective ways to make an impact on the direction of our state and country, the best way to be heard by our representatives and how we can protect America’s core values. Please bring questions and concerns to be discussed.
  • We will also be having a postcard party! So, if you’d like to keep America’s constitutional amendments intact and protect your civil liberties, we will have postcards and information about where to direct them locally and nationally, depending on your concerns.
  • AND, I will be facilitating a community Vision Board: We the People, a vision board for our country:

Our collective words, vision and our energies have power and we invite you to invest yours in this vision board for our country. Share your ideas, thoughts, visions, poems and power on a collective canvas which we will display in the Cherry building through February 28. Bring positive thoughts, vibes, words and pictures to add and inspire the collective audience to see a future full of possibility, power, and people of action.

ADDITIONAL INFORMATION:

Authentic Action Accountability Program – Beta teleclass starts January 16th 

I want to invite you as members of the No Limits Life community to participate in a Beta Program: a 3 month Authentic Action Accountability Group Coaching Program that you can join now for just $30!  I am asking you before this goes out on social media tomorrow so that you can claim your spot if this appeals to you.

I also invite you to share this with your friends if you think they might like it. A lot of people set goals for the New Year, but not every makes it past the first few weeks, let alone the first few months.  We want to help you or that friend of yours get things done in a way that works for you!

But here’s the deal, I only have 12 spots, so forward it now if you think they’d love it.

What you’ll receive:

  • Three 60-90 minute group calls focused on action planning and execution of your goals. Everyone will be given a chance to speak and gain support for their goals.
  • Six Separate emails with productivity and energy alignment activities, tips and inspirations to support your goal achievement
  • Three 30 minute sessions with one of the No Limits Life Coaches to support your development and actions.

All for $30

We’ll approach this not from just a “get it on your schedule and make it happen” perspective, also from an energetic and mindset perspective.  Sometimes you have to shed a few layers of disbelief before you can access the power that achieves goals.  This is for you if you:

  • Have ever really truly wanted to achieve a goal and been unable to, but can’t pinpoint why.
  • Know exactly what defeats you with respect to getting things done and are ready to overcome it – 2017 will be the year you own it!
  • Lose momentum after the first week of 2 of trying to adopt a new habit or push through to a new goal.
  • Are you are ready to break the cycle of doing what you have always done and getting the same results. You are ready to do something different and get different results.

Love yourself enough to invest in what you truly want in 2017.

Seriously, just $30 and we will create a space for you to share your goals, push past the real or perceive obstacles and create actions you will take before our next meeting the next month.

I have personally benefited from similar groups in progressing toward living the life I want to live. A few of the benefits I received:

  • Confidence I wasn’t alone.
  • Accountability to getting things done and support when I struggled.
  • Perspective and ideas I wouldn’t have found locked in a room alone trying to figure it out.
  • Insight and power to overcome what was holding me back.
  • Connections with people I didn’t know I needed and now rely on!

If this sounds like energy you could use to get you unstuck with your goals and move forward with creating your life’s path, then join me!

We’ll meet the third Monday of every month at 8pm CST via a dial in you’ll receive upon registration beginning January 16th, 2017. Then we will meet on February 20 and March 20 2017.
Again, this is limited to 12 people to make sure we have enough space to give you each the right amount of energy.

How do you Define Living Dangerously?

 Take a moment and consider what feels most dangerous to you: is it physical, spiritual, intellectual or emotional in nature?

Conventional wisdom would suggest all kinds of radical options.  As I have asked this question in workshops and discussions I have heard a few!   Things like:

skydiving

motorcycle racing

speaking in public

falling in love

climbing a mountain

swimming with sharks

parenting (that got a good giggle)

 

There were a ton of other physical risks that have come up in response to this question.  And yes, these things are risky…but if you notice, most people head right for the physical risks with the exception of falling in love.

These are easy answers – pick something with the potential to inflict bodily harm and we can all agree that it is dangerous.   Right?

Yes.

There is another way to think about it though and that is what I want to focus on.

The Art of Living Dangerously creates the path to you skydiving, moto title winning or swimming with sharks. This path fires your emotional, intellectual and spiritual body – more than your physical.   What if we think about living dangerously in these terms:

  • Being afraid and doing it anyway
  • Knowing there is more and going for it
  • Trying new things – taking the leap
  • Seeing new perspectives
  • Experiencing instead of Existing
  • Living by your values
  • Never settling
  • Transcending expectations
  • Having faith in limitless possibilities

Imagine you lived in opposition to any of those thoughts…let’s take “Having faith in limitless possibilities” first.  What would it mean if you have faith in limitless possibilities?  Consider an area of your life you feel stuck or trapped in, it could be anything from a relationship, a job, a volunteer commitment or a belief.

For example when I was wanting to become a life coach, I was very locked into the idea that I couldn’t leave my 6 figure job and the obligations it had created or my life would fall apart.  There were a lot of trapped and stuck attachments there:

  1. I had accumulated debt directly correlated to the amount of money I had: cars, houses, lines of credit, etc.
  2. I did enjoy my job and did well at it. I loved the people I worked with and generally enjoyed seeing them.  Yet I didn’t feel inspired by my job, I didn’t see how my role was really serving others in the way I wanted to.
  3. I had an idea of what people expected me to be and I was fearful of disappointing them.
  4. My family had become accustomed to my salary, my schedule and my life the way it impacted them; and I couldn’t let them be affected by my desires – they needed to always take first priority.

When my life coach suggested that it was possible for me to create the life I wanted if I dedicated myself to figuring out what it was, I resisted at first.  I was so focused on the narrow range of options I had decided were available that it was a good year of coaching with her before I was able to really open up to all of the things that could be if I allowed them into my life.

I had to do a few things to move past my self-created opposition to possibilities:

  1. I had to decide what an ideal day for me would look like.
  2. Sorting out what was important and what wasn’t to me then taking action to get free of what wasn’t.
  3. Realign my time to support what I wanted instead of what I felt like I “should be” doing.
  4. Starting to create that Ideal by pulling elements from it into the life I was living then.

On a daily basis I would ask myself “is this getting me closer or farther away from the life I truly want?” as I encountered challenges and opportunities.

I learned that not everything is worth the fight.

Over the next few weeks I will be tackling each of those Living Dangerously ideas as I prepare for my 2016 Art of Living Dangerously Creation Experience here in Cedar Rapids Iowa on September 9th and 10th.  You can take a look at the agenda here and then grab early bird registration before August 15th.

I hope you’ll stay tuned to this blog and follow the steps to both the idea of living dangerously and the way I overcame my opposition to it!
