Getting Fired Up About Your Life

www.coachingbymarianne.com If you feel as though it is time to step it up so that you feel more hopeful, joyful and passionate about your life, here are 5 ways that you can begin now. 1) Stay in Tune with Your Divine Inner Wisdom- Your divine inner wisdom knows you better than ANYONE! So before you ask everyone for advice, pay attention to your own divine inner wisdom. It should be the most important litmus test for all of your decisions, large and small. For those of you who aren’t quite sure what I am talking about-your divine inner wisdom is the spiritual part of you that is connected to universal truth. It is sort of your spiritual DNA and it is what makes you unique. It knows what you long for. It is not to be confused with thoughts in your head. Your divine inner wisdom is connected to your heart and spirit and the essence of you. When you ask your divine inner wisdom a question the answer may come to you in sudden thoughts or images or symbols. Stay open. It may come to you quickly, or not. But the answer will always come to you. Trust it! 2) Surround Yourself with Amazing People- If you really want to be amazing and excited about your possibilities then you have to be very picky about who you spend your time with. Be strategic about surrounding yourself with other people who aspire to the same things that you do or want the essence of what you want for your life. In other words, look for the traits and qualities...

Being in Flow

Have you ever had a goal or challenge that you have wanted to achieve but you keep getting sidetracked by less important busywork? It happens to the best of us. You know that you would feel really great once you have accomplished that goal but you just can’t seem to get out of your own way. Maybe you divert your attention by looking at emails or Face book or other small tasks that make you feel a small sense of accomplishment, when you know that if you took on that bigger project, you would make great strides in your more compelling goals. Well I would like to propose a way to help you become more engaged in the project that you might be putting off.  It is a way of “being” that you should strive for when doing anything that is important. It is called “being in flow”. When you are in flow you feel a sense of calm and happiness. Your creativity comes from a deeper place because you are tapping into your divine inner wisdom. You are focused on that one thing that you are doing and you are not multitasking. You lose yourself in the challenging and important tasks at hand and you enjoy the process. When I think of times that I am truly in flow, I am fully engaged in what I am doing and time is distorted. I sort of feel as though I am one with whatever I am doing. I often feel it when I am creating a piece of art. I even felt it during a challenging spin class the...

A Good Coach Vs. A Good Friend

I believe that there are a lot of you who would benefit greatly from hiring a coach to help you break through limitations, let go of things that don’t serve you and create your most amazing life. However many of you don’t understand how a coach helps you with this. I mean, why not just consult with your best friend for free, right? Here are 3 reasons why a good coach will help you get what you want in a more compelling way. 1) You Are The Agenda– When you hire a good coach your agenda will be her top priority and she will hold that for you -even when you cave, or forget or feel that you just can’t have, be or do what you want. Here is an example: You have hired a coach because you want to start a new business. You are really excited about this phase of your life and want to create this business that up until now you have pushed aside due to taking care of other’s needs. In order to do this you know that you need to carve out time each day to work on your business. However everyone that you love is so used to having you at their beck and call and you are having a hard time saying no. A good coach will help you with this since your agenda is to start your business. A good friend or relative may have their own agenda (conscious or subconscious) that wants you to stay the same because it is better for them. A good coach will also tell...

Stop Procrastinating and Start Making Magic

If you are a procrastinator you know that it can be one of the huge roadblocks to creating the life you really want. And although you know that you have to stop doing this…..you keep putting it off (heeeeeheee). Unfortunately this just makes you feel bad because you know that if you could just get out of your own way, you could make magic! There are different reasons why people procrastinate and I would like you to see if any of these reasons fit you and give you a way to work on this. 1) Fear of Failure: If this is your saboteur, the best way to handle this is to reframe your thoughts so that you fully detach from the outcome. Some of the most brilliant people have “failed their way to success”. Understand that failing is part of stretching, growing and up leveling. Try looking at it like this; if you know that you are totally committed to making your dreams come true and you are taking action towards them-nothing you try can be wrong. You can never fail!  Just learn from everything and keep going forward. Make failure your friend. 2) Fear of Success: Some people are afraid to shine their light for fear of others cutting them down. They have a belief that if they bring too much attention to themselves others will ridicule them. They believe “Who am I to be so special”? And I am here to say that it is perfectly ok to shine your beautiful light in the world. In fact, you are depriving the world of the best parts of...
