Got a Glitch in Your Gratitude?

By | Blog

Isn’t it CRAZY how the little things cause glitches in our gratitude? Just think about the little things that trip you up and steal your joy during the day, my friend! (Now we go behind the scenes of making this video…) As I was preparing to make this video celebrating my book being on Amazon now,(YAYYY!) 🙂 EVERYTHING in the tech area went off the rails…and so did I…frustration…tears…pity party…meltdown.  THEN guess what happened? Years of my “I Get To!” mindset training kicked in and flipped me from pity to empowering perspective. (Thank you, Lord!) So I decided to be totally transparent and share that with you in the video because this is where the rubber meets the road in life, right? I hope my transparency serves you.  I’m once again proving that we ALL need constant reminders of what matters most – especially mwa, “The Attitude Expert”, the “I…

Mother’s Day is Hard

By | Blog

Mother’s Day can be wonderful – and also, sometimes hard – for a variety of reasons: Hurt, heartache, loss, grief, dysfunction, etc.  In this video I share 3 proven strategies that have helped so many people around the globe to make this day (and any day) so much better by choosing to 1) Make NO COMPARISONS  2) Have ZERO EXPECTATIONS  3) Do something for OTHER WOMEN who have made a difference in your life. From the very personal experience of my mom dying at the young age of 46, I needed to put these in place in order to even get through Mother’s Day! I hope it serves you as well. Thanks for leaving a comment, and sharing this – we never know who needs to hear it.  I know I would have loved to hear it many years ago. Oh, and HAPPY MOTHERS DAY!

I Get To have a Wonderful Life

By | Blog

Keeping the right perspective is particularly timely and powerful in the midst of the challenges some are facing currently – whether economically, in business, health or other life issues. Now more than ever, everyone needs encouragement and hope along with a gentle reminder of the power of our own perspective. Frank Capra’s classic movie, “It’s a Wonderful Life” offers just that. The movie opens with various loved ones offering up prayers for George Bailey (portrayed by Jimmy Stewart) who is at a place of desperation in his life. We then see and hear the dialogue between stars in the heavens, representing angels talking to God. Joseph (the senior angel) and God are talking to Clarence (the apprentice angel) about George Bailey. God tells him “A man down on Earth needs our help.” Clarence says, “Splendid! Is he sick?” “No, worse-he’s discouraged,” Joseph replies. “At exactly 10:45 pm, that man will…

What the World Needs Now is Love Sweet Love

By | Blog

What a crisis we would be in if we succumbed to any ignorant thinking that we must agree with someone in order to maintain respect, love and honor.  Seriously – if you have a friend, family member or spouse (and been married more than 5 minutes), you know you can and will disagree, while still loving and respecting them. On one of my business trips last year, I had the opportunity to room with a precious young woman I’d met previously, but didn’t know well. She lives on the other side of the globe from me – from an entirely different background and culture.  I only knew she was a loving and devoted wife and mommy of 2 little ones.   We immediately hit it off like a couple of childhood friends reconnecting, sharing rich and deeply meaningful conversations.  We shared laughter and tears as we connected quickly in matters…

A Fresh Perspective That Will Change Your Life

By | Blog

Approaching an anniversary of any tragedy can take its toll on us.  We can find ourselves repeating some of the stages of grief we felt initially, as we’re hit by huge waves of emotions, similar to what we experienced initially: grief, heartache, pain, questioning, etc.  One of the stages we should always welcome is that of reflection.  (i.e. Reflection: careful thought, especially the process of reconsidering previous actions, events or decisions.) For me, reflection has been a critical part of the healing and personal growth process when I think about my friends’ tragic accident – now 15 years ago. October 26, 2001, was a sunny, crisp fall morning and as I walked Laurie out to her van, we talked about the difficult year she’d been through. I hugged her and said, “I love you and am so proud of you!”.  “I love you back!” she said as she drove off….

Your Thoughts Matter – Choose Wisely

By | Blog

Whether consciously aware of it or not, our mental and emotional state is continually affected by the repeated exposure to all the messages we see and hear throughout the day – good or bad. Just as our physical body requires healthy food to be healthy, so does our mental and emotional health rely on what we feed our minds. Right after the horrific attack on the US on September 11, 2001 (15 years ago), counselors offered serious warnings to people about repeated exposure to re-watching the tragic events of that day–and certainly not to allow their children to watch. They stressed how harmful the side effects were; causing even greater stress, worry, fear, panic, etc. To continue focusing on this terror would only compound the problem dramatically – while improving absolutely nothing. As Brain expert Dr. Daniel Amen shares, “The thoughts that go through your mind, moment by moment, have…

Criticism Cripples Us (If We Let It)

By | Blog

There are critics everywhere. Everyone will receive criticism. We can’t control that. But we can control what we do with the criticism, and how we respond to it. Joan shares an example of a boy who was criticized by his own family and went on to do great things. Don’t let criticism cripple you!   “It’s just so hard when people not only don’t support you, they criticize you – even family members. How dysfunctional is that? They don’t understand what I do, yet, they’re critical. It’s so discouraging …so painful…I just don’t know what to do with that, Joan.” Although my coaching client was on the other side of the world from me, I could feel her heavy heart.   Everyone has critics. Everyone gets criticized. That truth stated, why is it so hard when we are the recipient? Why do we care so much about what other people…

Personal Freedom Lies In Letting Go!

By | Blog

Looking at the test results, the Doctor leaned toward me, putting his hand on my knee and said, “Joan, I need you to know you can die from this.” “That’s crazy!” I thought – “I’m not physically sick…just feeling a little run down.” So began a journey of learning what a huge toll heartbreak and grief take on us when we don’t learn to let go of the things we can’t fix, change or control. Personal freedom lies in letting go! {Read Joan’s Book Excerpt below} “When we are no longer able to change a situation, we are challenged to change ourselves.” ~Victor Frankl Learning to let go of all the things in life we aren’t responsible to fix, change or control is critical! This is one of the most challenging disciplines in life and clearly one of the most important. It affects every aspect of our lives from: fuel…
