Here’s an eye opening fact: there’s often one simple word holding you back from everything you want.

Yes, one short but very powerful word! How could one word hold us back from all we desire, dream of, want to be and do in our lives?

This one word is short but not sweet. What is it?


Life transitions, normal daily challenges and crazy chaos are all different types of hurdles, but each presents a chance to turn obstacles into opportunities.

It’s all about learning to  intercept the suffering with mental fitness skills. Carefully choose your thoughts, mindset, and emotional response in every situation.

Take a moment. Take a deep breath and really think about that. Ask yourself these questions: What do I really want in my life? What’s stopping me? Almost always, the case is we are afraid of something. Our fears hold us back from claiming our hopes, dreams and desires.

I invite you right now to think of a situation that you would like to bring about in your life. It could be a career change, the beginning or ending of a relationship, embarking on a totally new experience, moving changing focus on a project or just about anything.

Hold a scenario in your mind that you’d really like to create in your life and ask yourself:

  • Why haven’t I done it yet?
  • What’s holding me back?
  • What would I do if I weren’t afraid?

These are powerful questions and if you take the time to sit with them and really answer them honestly, you may find that fear is exactly what’s holding you back. Once you recognize this, you’re halfway there.

It’s tremendously satisfying to help my coaching clients break through this fear. Move past their anxiety and claim the amazing experiences, relationships, goals and desires of their hearts. There are many powerful and effective processes to help you discover what created the fears and limiting beliefs you currently hold and to see how they are literally anchoring you to your present circumstances.

The key is in creating a safe, sacred space within which you feel secure enough to allow yourself to process your thoughts, feelings and intuitive hits. It’s like peeling away the layers of an onion – going deeper without editing or judging yourself. This is when you strike gold!

Together we partner in uncovering your subconscious thoughts, motivations, inspirations and fears. It’s a beautiful and enlightening process, which brings tremendous clarity to your present day situations.

The exciting and empowering part is discovering that you now have a choice!

Do you want to continue to live under the power of the old, limiting beliefs we’ve identified or do you choose to acknowledge them for serving you well in the past and now choose to create a new belief system based on your current life circumstances and new found understanding?

Rarely do my clients choose to retain their old, limiting beliefs. A great majority of the time they are ready to let go. They find freedom and joy in defining, creating and truly living their new truths. From this place they achieve goals and desires over and over again. Everything you want is on the other side of fear!
