I thought I was pushing myself to be better. But it never seemed to end.
I'd always find something else to be disappointed with.
This not only affected me, but it also affected my team. I became very judgmental of other's performance.
We'll just say the combination of the two had a tendency to create a tense and intimidating environment for those who worked with me.
At the time, it was understandable considering the pressure to get results.
But as I've studied high-performance I'm learning there are simple things that we do that hold us back from our potential and therefore the potential of our team.
One simple thing that might be tripping you up is the Law of Dominant Thought.
1. Visualize what you want instead of avoiding what...
Naturally, this was a question I've always wondered...what am I doing that's getting in the way of me being effective as a leader?
I knew what I was "supposed" to do and be as a leader.
Yes, all leaders should serve their team. John Maxwell says, "people don't care how much you know until they know how much you care."
Like you, I've heard all the aphorisms around leadership. But you know what?
Even strong leaders fall into these three human tendencies.
The beautiful thing is that because these aren't talked about, you might not even be aware you're doing this.
And that's what's so great because once you do become self-aware you can start to choose a different more effective approach.
In this video, we'll discuss the three most common pitfalls...
What are you supposed to do when you just don't feel like it anymore?
Have you lost the motivation you once had? Maybe you've been pursuing a goal for years and are starting to feel some doubt.
You might even be questioning your ability. Self-doubt begins to creep into your mind and it further demotivates you.
You're wondering to yourself, "should I even be pursuing this?"
If this has ever been you, then you'll find this helpful to encourage yourself when adversity strikes.
Here are two simple practices you can do to stay motivated when things get hard.
In this video, I'll show you two practices to increase your motivation.
You'll learn ways to...
1. Strengthen your reasons to keep going
2. Weaken your reasons to quit
As you do, you'll clear a path for yourself to go after what you want most in life and create the results you desire.
How to Stay...
Executive presence, what does that even look like?
You know it when you see it, right?
The person is poised, intuitive, creative, focused, powerful, persuasive, and even charismatic. They communicate with ease, they have clarity, and have a way of simplifying complexity.
It would make sense why you want to improve your executive presence. But how?
So often we look to tactical training to develop what is intangible and even subjective.
How do you develop something that feels so hard to grasp?
In this video, we discuss three simple areas to improve your executive presence.
We'll answer questions like...
Have you ever felt like you're not as confident as you want to be?
As you move forward into greater success, you're likely to experience this from time to time. It's normal to feel unsure of your abilities to create the outcomes you went to.
This is especially true when you're pushing yourself outside of your comfort zone doing things for the first time or choosing to move in new directions with your life.
But, nonetheless, confidence IS important. When you're not confident you are leaving so much potential on the table.
In this video, we'll explore what confidence is and how you can find it when you need it most.

So today let's talk about confidence.
Confidence is everything. Because without confidence, we wouldn't pursue half the things we've pursued in life.
Without confidence, we wouldn't have reached the level of success we have in our...
How often do you feel you're running by the seat of your pants?
There's never enough consistent time to do the creative thinking you know you should be doing.
You're busy and it's easy to let days and weeks go by and not feel any closer to your goals.
In today's video, I show you how to sharpen your leadership presence, prioritize what matters, and manage your energy by creating a vision for your ideal week.
With this practice, you can create the results you desire with less stress and more energy at the end of the day.
I know what it's like balancing a demanding work schedule, leading others, and striving to be a great spouse and parent.
It's a lot!
There was a time in my life where I was running on a hamster-wheel, tirelessly running from one thing to the next. Yet, I wasn't getting any closer to who I desired to be or where I wanted to go.
If I were to teach you only ONE thing to step off the hamster wheel it would be what I share in this video.
It doesn't matter who you are...the question isn't whether or not you're a leader, it's how well are you leading?
If you want to be a powerful, present, and purposeful leader, this is for you.
It's normal to want to get more done in our lives. There's so much you want to do, right?
You have options.
If we could just figure out how to get it all done, then we'd be doing quite well for ourselves.
This is the very beginning of the do more to be more trap, we think that more we get done the more valuable we will be in life.
Yes, this might get you to a certain level of success, but what got you here, won't get you there.
Getting more done, might just be the biggest myth in productivity.
Like anything, we get more of what we focus on. Doing leads to more doing...when will you know that you've done enough?
In this video, I explain how to maximize your results with minimum effort--now that's productivity in my book.

Productivity is an important topic. Especially, when you have big goals and just can't seem to find the time to create the results you desire.
It's not easy out there with so many competing priorities. How are we supposed to get it all done?
Maybe you're busier than ever. But are you any closer to your goals? What potential might you be leaving on the table?
These are questions we'll review together over the next four weeks, where I'm sharing 4 short videos on Simple Ways You Can Be More Productive, Without Doing More.
Today, we're talking about your inbox. Where is it? What is it? And what it's not?
We metaphorically go through our day collecting post-it notes from others. People just stick them to us.
By the end of the day, you might even feel like you're physically covered with these nice little yellow notes, wearing them as if they are a new wardrobe.
Some are necessary some aren't, how do we know, and where do...
"I know what I want but I just don't know how to get there," a client recently told me.
It makes perfect sense that you'd be reluctant to take action when you're unsure if it'll even work.
With so much to do already, it's understandable that you're reluctant to experiment with taking actions toward new goals.
On the other side of this uncertainty, however, you might just find the answer. Anything worth doing takes a little bit of faith.
Faith means letting go of outcomes and choosing to take steps into the dark unknown to find your proof--your answers.
In this video, I show you the four words that every successful person has absolute clarity in. Start here, apply some faith to the equation, and you might just be amazed at how much influence you have to create the results you desire.
