Note from Carol 

Does this sound familiar....?

You say "YES!" "Here's how I want to start doing [fill in the business/my exercise/my realtionships, etc.]

And then, what happens? In a week or two, you are doing the same thing you have always done. Then you start feeling badly about yourself and your resistance to change, etc. The negative voices come to dinner. (Nobody likes that kind of uninvited dinner guest...)

Over the years, you begin to think it's true. You begin to truly believe that no matter what, you cannot change your patterns. It's just the way you are.

You are only a little right. 

You CAN change your patterns. And it takes time, perseverance, a deep desire/why and lots of external help.

What do YOU want to be different in your life? Hit reply and let me know!

Breaking the Start/Stop pattern you have had for years

  • Do you find you are always starting and never finishing?
  • Do you love the spark of an idea when it’s fresh and new, but loathe moving a project all the way through to completion?

You are not alone. In fact, a friend of mine just today told me that she is a “ignitor” or “spark” – not an implementor. She had a great idea to raise chickens. Who maintains the coop? Her husband. This friend has gone through a few career changes also and is in the midst of a beautiful change right at the moment.

So, what can be done?

First, love yourself as you are. Know that this is your strength. You are an idea person. The world needs you! So many people out there are “blah blah blah.” They go to work each day and power through life, barely looking up. They are so disconnected with themselves that new ideas don’t have chance. And you are NOT that person!
