All the Stuff #27 How to Celebrate Yourself

Remember you can highlight to share any text in this post, give it a try!

Today the “All the Stuff” gals Jen Turrell, Financial Personal Trainer for Women, Lisa Carpenter, Transformational Life and Nutrition Coach, and Lisa Sharp, Empowerment Coach and Clutter Expert, share about the importance and celebrating yourself.

When we take initiative to follow our intentions, and honour our “whys”, we need to stop and celebrate! Sharing our wins, even when thing are not perfect, is necessary to remind ourselves of the progress that we do make, and give ourselves permission to say “I did awesome!”.

People routinely avoid sharing their wins in fear of appearing egotistical or bragging. As such, they have created these negative stories around allowing themselves to celebrate, and judge those that do so for themselves. This behaviour whittles away at our self-worth, and keeps us in a small place full of self-deprecating behaviour.

Listeners will learn how in fact we all do need self-approval and support, and it is a skill that needs to be cultivated. When we celebrate ourselves which is a form of self-love, we soften our attitude towards ourselves and others as well. It isn’t easy to do, and requires keeping these thoughts top of mind. It also requires being able to receive, which is especially hard for women.

Lisa Carpenter offers this tip: Write a list of 20 things to celebrate about yourself. If can be about anything that made you happy. Carry this list with you to refer back to when you are having a rough day. Another great tip is at the end of the day, write down three things that happened to you every day. Or better yet, plan to do three things every day that you can celebrate. It will change your life! Our gals share three of their own personal wins which you won’t want to miss!

Episode #76 Money Movement with Luci McMonagle

Today I am pleased to have Luci McMonagle with me. Luci is an Abundance Breakthrough Coach and Speaker for women, the Founder of Learn about Money and the host of the Wealthy Wednesday Podcast Show.

Luci first started her business in 2010 to fulfill a need for women to learn the basics of money management, like financial literacy, how to balance a checkbook etc. Soon after beginning to work with clients, she discovered that they had money mindset stories that were holding them back from achieving their true potential. This also brought awareness to her own money stories, having grown up in an impoverished family. This ignited a desire in her to empower women and teach them the financial mindset tools they needed so they would not have to struggle the way she and her mother did. Ultimately, she wanted to create a money movement globally.

Luci shares how 99% of the time, money mindset issues are what hold people back. These issues often stem from their childhood beliefs imparted by their parents such as “Money is the root of all evil” or “I can’t afford that”. She talks about how money stories manifest themselves in women in many different ways, such as procrastination, hesitation, doing “busy” work, basically avoiding the things that bring clients through the door. She further indicates that sometimes these manifestations are unconscious, like literally holding back on their delivery due to not-enoughism and perfectionism.

In her quest to create a Money Movement for women, Luci provides 1:1 coaching, and will be introducing some new group programs this year, as well as women’s retreats for small groups.

Quotes

  • “Even if you break through those financial barriers, it will find a way to bring you back down to your financial set point.” ~ Luci
  • “Money is a tool that allows your life to be more comfortable, but it is not the end all be all and it doesn’t dictate what your personal value is as a human.” ~ Luci

All the Stuff #26 How to Recalibrate After the Holidays

Remember you can highlight to share any text in this post, give it a try!

After the flurry of activities and over indulgences of the holidays, we usually greet the new year with an abundance of motivation to make the new year the best ever.  However, so often, a few weeks into the new year, we lose that motivation, and give into old habits and behaviors that don’t lead us towards our “whys”.  This leads us to believe that we have to “start over”…

Today the “All the Stuff” gals Lisa Carpenter, Transformational Life and Nutrition Coach, along with Lisa Sharp, Empowerment Coach and Clutter Expert, and Jen Turrell, Financial Personal Trainer for Women, discuss this common behavior.  Lisa Carpenter offers the perspective that no one really starts over – you start from the place where you left off.  And losing the judgement is something that is imperative as it does not serve anyone to dwell on something that has passed.  Nor does it serve to bash yourself around in shame for overspending, overeating, or over-cluttering…  Instead, focus on your “whys”, and move towards them and how you want to feel.

So if things get out of control, and you start feeling less than stellar, you have to be willing to go through the “detox” symptoms, to get through it and feel better.  Lisa Sharp discusses how having a plan to deal with the eventual discomfort will really help get through the transition towards your self-care.

Listeners will also hear how having people around you with common goals helps keep you on track.  Jen Turrell shared how the circle she shares with Lisa Sharp and Lisa Carpenter help her keep her goals of simplicity front and center, and in so doing, found her holidays were quite peaceful and relaxed.
