Money, Money, Money… ah yes, the root of all evil. Or is it? Isn’t it really our desire for money that’s the problem?! If money is the root of all evil, then they say, greed is the seed.
Greed is evil, money is powerful.
We all have a unique and personal relationship with money. There are some people who measure their success by power and status. For others, maybe their upbringing made it come easy throughout their lives, with generational wealth as a cushion. And some have had to struggle to make ends meet and so have developed frugal, sustainable habits as a result. Read More
Are you finding it hard to concentrate during the day? Mind wandering, foot tapping, to-do list getting longer? With all that 2020 has brought it’s a no brainer that our minds are going to be wandering elsewhere and will change us in ways unimaginable right now. Therefore the approach in which we enter our workspace or headspace absolutely needs to adapt.
To be able to focus on your day and tasks at hand it is crucial to tap into what fuels a powerful mindset into being productive, energized and inspired. First, we need to look at uniting energy inwards; finding your breath, feeling your muscles, waking up the spine and discovering that central resolve.
This is where we’ll begin.
We only really see people from the outside. In fact, we only see what they want us to see. Whether it’s the barista at your local coffee shop or your friendly co-worker that always says, “Good Morning” with a huge smile on her face, what’s presented to us is never as telling as what’s on the inside.Read More
I was excited to be given the opportunity to Guest Blog for Wildernest, and when debating on what single topic to tackle, I started thinking about all the things that I have experienced in my lifetime and career that could help benefit other female professionals and entrepreneurs. But I quickly realized that it’s not one thing, but the sum of how all of those experiences came together, that contains the wisdom I want to share.
My life has not been all sunshine and roses.
We all know there’s no such thing as an overnight success. Duh. If there was, we’d all run fearlessly in the direction of our dreams!
But even with this knowledge that dreams take time to be realized, unfortunately we still see people quickly giving up on their dreams as soon as things get a little bit tough.
Sure, things may become harder than we realized when we started, or it takes longer to reach our goals, or we feel like we aren’t getting anywhere.Read More
There has never been so much quiet in our lives…and so much noise. I’ve found this duality of quarantine incredibly interesting and profoundly powerful. Never have we had so much time to ourselves, so much time to go inward, so much time to focus and think about what is truly important to us. And never have we had such a strong instinct to run from that quiet. Because let’s face it, for most of us, this quiet is incredibly uncomfortable and unnerving.Read More
Stress affects everyone, and tbh: it’s like the pain in the ass cousin to our old familiar frenemy: fear!
With fear, our minds think of worst case scenarios and if we don’t think through ways to overcome it, we just hold ourselves back. Fear forces us to stay in our protected little bubble, not taking those necessary leaps of faith, only to realize in the future what could’ve been if we didn’t let our minds talk us out of it.
With stress, our mind is constantly checking in with itself to see if we’re still stressing about the very thing we’re trying not to stress about. It clouds our mind, makes us unproductive, unmotivated… and sometimes even unhinged. It’s like being on a diet. How many times have you thought, “I won’t have sweets” and all of a sudden you can’t stop thinking about not having sweets. Our brain checks in with us constantly, asking: are you thinking about the thing you’re not supposed to be thinking about?
At Wildernest, we see far too many women with a vision for their “dream business,” without thinking through how that dream business aligns with their actual dream life.
Often our minds get constrained by thinking about how to pursue our dream only in the context of our present lives. But that’s not dreaming big. That’s just trying to fit one more thing into your current, maybe never-ending, to-do list. And when that happens, it’s more than likely that if and when we actually do decide to pursue our dream business, we fall into the pattern of doing things the same way we did when we were working for someone else, because it’s all we know. We replicate the same systems, schedule, and style that we tried to escape from, only to end up feeling a lot of the same things that made us want to leave in the first place.Read More
