Self. Care. Those two words together bring up something different for each of us. We know we need it. We think we want it. But we aren’t always sure what it means or what it looks like.
Sometimes we are even a bit embarrassed to talk about it. It may feel vulnerable, a bit needy or even selfish to admit that we must put aside some time to care for ourselves. Then, once we’ve established the time, we don’t really know what to do with it.
Phyllis Long, LMFT will help us to distinguish between what self-care is and what it is not and will help us to establish some basic steps to practicing exquisite and intentional self-care that benefits us along with those around us.
Whether you’re marketing your own business or ministry or wanting that next promotion, you have to take the initiative to promote yourself. You have to put yourself in the spotlight and make your voice heard. For most women, it feels “icky”. We fear judgment and rejection.
So while you might love what you do and be pretty great at it, you’re afraid of putting yourself out there to the masses. You’re the best kept secret and your bank account shows it!
If you know you could experience a lot more success—but aren’t—this is for you. It’s time to change your perspective so you can break through your fears Get the courage you need to step into the spotlight in a way that attracts people, builds trust and actually feels good and authentic to you.
Have you ever wondered why some people succeed more quickly than others in their lives, relationships and careers? Whether you want to get more done, achieve big goals, lead others better, develop skills faster, or dramatically increase your joy and confidence, there are six habits that will help you achieve it. What’s more is that they achieve it without feeling overwhelmed, miserable or burned out. Hallelujah!
Come learn the six key habits of high performance that you can begin deliberately implementing in your life that will truly move the needle.
Sometimes we are our own worst enemy, especially with the way we talk to ourselves. If you spoke to your best friend or a loved one the same way you speak to yourself, would they be shocked, hurt or offended? If so, it may be time to turn your "ANTs" into "PETs"!
Automatic Negative Thoughts (ANTs) are sneaky little pests that hijack our minds and hold us back from success both personally and professionally. They cause us to keep hitting the same brick walls of resistance, struggle and self-sabotage.
Come gain tools to discover and challenge your ANTs and turn them into PETs – Positive Enhancing Thoughts that will energize your mind and spirit. You truly can become your own best friend.
Do you have so many piles of stuff that you can’t even relax and enjoy the things you truly love? Have you run out of space to put stuff? Is clutter just a “normal” thing you put up with until someone’s coming over… and then madly scramble to put things in order?
Did you know that God cares about your clutter? Aside from the visual “mess” of clutter and disorganization, it actually messes up your life!
Yikes! If you're feeling any of this unnecessary stress, it's time to end your battle with clutter and finally love your home and workspace!
Learn the three magic questions that will set you free from the overwhelming pressure of having too much stuff. We'll also address the deeper heart issues behind why we have clutter so you can let go of the things that don't really matter, reclaim your space and and create an environment you LOVE. Then you will experience the freedom, peace and contentment God wants for you.
It’s time to feel the ahhhhh…
You know the verse in Colossians 3:23: "Whatever you do, work at it with all your heart (heartily), as working for the Lord, not for men." Heartily means "out of one's soul" or "from the core of one's being." Is that the level you are living your life in whatever you do?
Our work consumes the bulk of our waking hours. Clearly, God put us here with work to do and He wants it to matter. We're not meant to be mediocre. Whether you are an entrepreneur with your own business or an "in-trepreneur" working for a company, do you believe you could be playing at a higher level? Do you believe you were made for more, but not sure how to get there?
What is holding you back from meeting your potential?
None of those fears are from God, but they ARE real and they DO hold you back.
If you are going to overcome your doubts and fears, step out of your comfort zone and make your difference in this world, you need some strategies you can use everyday to move you from mediocre to amazing!
We're going to talk about how you can up-level your life in a way that honors God and helps you make the impact He created you to make. Don't let that annoying inner critic of yours hold you back any longer!
No more excuses. No more waiting until things are perfect. No more sitting on the sidelines. There is freedom, passion and purpose on the other side!
If you’re looking for that little kick in the pants to move you into action, don’t miss this!
Why is money such a difficult topic? We use it every day to support our faith, our families and our fun, yet it is often one of our biggest sources of stress and worry. If God has given us talents to earn money, why do so many of us struggle with handling it better? Imagine what we could do if we were empowered to put our money to work for us,regardless of how much we make!
Based on the teaching of Dave Ramsey, we learned:
A NEW YEAR always brings a sense of hope...of change...of new opportunities...of inspiration and potential. We all want to make a difference and know that our work matters, but statistics show that only 13% of people are happy at work. That means the rest are settling for mediocrity, feeling stuck in the grind, stressed out and unfulfilled. Is that you?
Don't go through another year of the same! God has a purpose for your life and your work. He has given you passions and strengths that are meant to be used to help others while bringing meaning and significance to you. (Visit our speaker's website for more information.)
All hands on deck! We're blessing some families in the true spirit of Christmas and we need your help wrapping gifts. Even if you don't like wrapping, there are plenty of ways to contribute and have fun.
We'll also have meaningful conversation and inspiration about living generously through our time, talents and treasures and how generosity actually grows your business.
Perfectionism is a trap that can run you ragged! It can cause us to procrastinate, obsess, or just never feel good enough.
Join us for this discussion as we look at strategies to confront and overcome the bondage of perfectionism to gain freedom and enjoyment in life!
Do you want to learn how to accomplish more in 12 weeks than most do in a year?
Join our discussion inspired by the book "The 12 Week Year" and turn the concept of a year on its head! You'll leave knowing how to develop clarity and focus on what matters most and gain a healthy sense of urgency to get it done without being overwhelmed.
We're in the 4th quarter of 2018...the final 12 weeks. Let's win the year!
How's your life? Are you satisfied with your body? With your relationships? Your work? Your business? Your bank account? If we're truly honest, most of us are not at all satisfied with at least one of these areas. We know we can do better... we often even know what we could do or should do to improve things...but we don't. Why do we remain stuck?
One thing is for sure. God does not want you to stay stuck. He wants you to thrive and live the victorious life that Jesus died to give you. So if you're ready to take a good honest (private) look in the mirror, and implement a few simple things, you will be on the path to changing what's not working in your life.
Your tomorrow is determined by what you do today. With the right perspective, strategies and tools, you can get unstuck, thrive and actually LOVE what you see in the mirror!
Let's get to know each other better!
