Stop Berating Your Weaknesses

December 4, 2019Embody Your Potential

Strange advice? Not really. We know that focusing on weaknesses is a fast path to mediocrity and stress, and yet 95% of all performance management systems still do exactly that. Even when we do our own self audit, our reptilian brain loves to fixate on our  weakness or perceived failure. What’s the cost of this? Many of our weaknesses will … Read More

Do You See Brilliance?

October 22, 2019Embody Your Potential, Walk Your Vision

It’s so easy when we witness other people – to see their magic & their gifts, to be so clear on the blessing that they bring to our life just by being in their presence. We struggle a little bit more when we’re witnessing ourselves, right? It’s sometimes hard to see our own gifts; trusting the precious gem that we … Read More

She’s Brilliant All The Time

October 21, 2019Embody Your Potential

I always try to remind myself something that Maya Angelou said, ‘When you know better, you do better”. This process of growth we each take is about evolution. It’s about evolving into our highest potential and purest self. If every day we can get closer and more aligned with the truth of who we are, the potential of what we … Read More

What I Learned This Weekend

October 8, 2019Embody Your Potential, Walk Your Vision

This weekend, dear friends and I immersed ourselves in the richness of Portland Oregon. These friends and I know one another because we are all part of an organization with the mission of supporting Female Executives globally. These women: Diverse, wildly successful by conventional measurements, and brilliant. They, like me, have led businesses, bought and sold companies, rolled up, downsized, … Read More

A * MAZE

September 20, 2019Embody Your Potential

Amaze: In awe / overwhelmed with wonder. A Maze: A winding, unknown, unpredictable journey from start to stop. We can choose amazement in the midst of the ordinary if we choose to be overwhelmed with wonder by the potential of each and every moment. It is a state of openness and curiosity mixed with acceptance and reverence. It sounds lovely, … Read More

Seth, Superman, & Your Cape

August 29, 2019Embody Your Potential

I subscribe to Seth Godin’s blog, and truthfully, it is one of the few that I read faithfully. Often, I finish reading and am singing, Right On! Or – That is SO IT! Not all – but many are Eureka moments. Not because he’s sharing information that is new or falls in the genius category (although some of it does). … Read More

Lead Your Own Life

August 20, 2019Embody Your Potential

We are inundated with rules defined for us – codes, policy, law, procedures, doctrines, … We could go down a rabbit hole untangling the WHY behind societal and cultural rules, but as there is no escaping rules in an organized culture, that feels pointless. Let’s instead focus where we have choice and authority: Internal Rules. These are the calcifications and … Read More

A Star Is Born (Believe it?)

August 9, 2019Embody Your Potential

Do you believe you have something totally magical and unique to offer in this lifetime? A contribution you were BORN to have? I do. I have never met two people that are exactly the same. I can have the same conversation with 4 or 4,000,000 people, and each dialog will take on its own flavor. Always unique. Here’s what I … Read More

Expanding Boundaries

July 31, 2019Embody Your Potential

Tara Brach writes in her book, Radical Acceptance, “The boundary of our acceptance is the boundary of our freedom.” I am trying to remember this moment by moment in my own life. To the extent that we reject or resist, we shrink wrap our joy & tightly tether our peace. It is in the acceptance of what is that we … Read More
