A Special Treat- The Synergy of Success


Create synergy and momentum in your life by looking at these areas of your life:

  • Your Theme for your year. This is one word that serves as a slogan for what you are trying to accomplish. My word for this year is “alignment”.
  • Your Goals. Review the goals that you have set making sure they are goals that really light up your life and make you want to jump out of bed every day.
  • Your Daily Practice. Momentum grows exponentially as you practice new habits and inspired action every day.
  • Your People. Be around energetic, positive, life affirming people.
  • Your Team. Create a team with trust, unity, and vision.

Synergistic practices:


  • The Universe Likes Speed- Allow that things can happen fast.
  • Daily Journal. Write in your journal every day.
  • Daily Gratitude. Feel appreciation every day by saying thank you.
  • Daily Love. Allow love in and give love. Use loving language.
  • Daily Learning. Learn something new as part of your daily practice.
  • Daily Movement and Nourishment. Any movement is positive and choose foods that make you feel energized and renewed.
  • Daily accountability. Track and share your progress with your coach, a friend, or  a mentor.
  • The importance of ‘I am” “I am” is the creative force. Use the feeling and meaning of these words wisely and unleash your powerful potential
  • Be the  energy of what you want. Increase your energy vibration. Stay focused on high energy thoughts and actions.

Allow Your Imagination to Come Alive

Here is a poem I wrote about my own creative process:

The Flow of Writing

I slowly breathe in and breathe out,

Surrendering to the words,
Giving up control,
Letting the words create
Free flowing thoughts,
Exacting, concentrated thoughts
Pouring my soul and my love into each word
Caressing each word
Blessing the thoughts
Thinking of you
What do you need?
A heart touched? A mind awakened?
A spirit healed? A peaceful heart?
Encouragement and to be cherished? A gift? To laugh?
I let go, spent in my love and passion for thoughts and words
Time stands still
Finished, beautiful, blessed and loved.
I sigh and savor the creation.

A Soaring Mindset Allows and Flows Success

One of the loves of my life is writing poetry.  My poems usually come to me and are written within fifteen to twenty minutes. I am never sure when a poem will hit- but I always have a notebook or journal ready… This poem is included in my book Living Successfully and Joyfully Every Day. Enjoy:) the pic below was taken as I was nearing the top of Pikes Peak and I truly felt like I was soaring (some clouds seemed to actually be beneathe me and so were some mountain peaks).

Soaring to Success

Oh, to Soar- Soaring through the clouds like a bird flying- carefree/effortless/graceful/freedom/blissful
Carefree/not careless
Trusting  that everything will work out
Confidence in the ability to soar
Absence of worry
Absence of fear
Abilities match the requirements
The right place at the right time
Everything clicks
Not brash or harsh
Lack of force/resistance
Lack of awkwardness
No shoulds
Just being
No burdens
Just lightness
The sun shining
Breathing the air
The wind running over your body
The view of the ground
The view of the surroundings
A soaring mindset allows and flows success.
Soar today…live..breathe..relax…enjoy

Blast Through Clutter to Clear Your Blocks

When you are struggling and clear thinking seems like an impossibility, clearing physical clutter can give you sharp, focused thinking. Maybe you are working on a project and you feel stalled or maybe you have been dealing with writer’s block or creativity blocks.  It is frustrating, I know. But there is a speedy method to get you back on track.

Instead of trying to think your way out of it, “do” your way out of it. Take on an unrelated task that you can finish in a reasonable amount of time. For example, clean out and wash your car, clean out a closet, clean out and organize a dresser drawer, clean off the top of your desk, clean out a file… even just one file,  or organize your silverware drawer…  choose any task where you can go from chaos or disorganization to clean, pristine, and organized.

This simple technique brings amazing calm, clear focus to your mind. I use this technique when I feel my concentration or creativity fading. Upon completion of my organizing task, I find myself able to solve mental puzzles and come up with creative solutions. My mind appreciates the new order and I find it to be freeing and liberating.

Try it.

Effective Brainstorming

Yesterday, I talked about mindmapping as a creativity technique. Today, I want to continue the conversation. Whether you are a blogger, an author, a small biz owner, a professional, a stay at home mom or dad, a coach, a consultant, and so on…there are many times when you will need to bring creativity to a project.

Here is what usually happens during brainstorming…someone starts a list and immediately begins the mind chatter of…”Oh that won’t work”…or “so and so tried it already”…etc. This prejudging really gets in the way of creative brainstorming. And often in teams, other team members will weigh in negatively on others’ ideas, which stifles the creative flow. Who wants to keep offering suggestions when every single one is shot down?  

The point of brainstorming is to come up with multiple ideas. So when you decide on a brainstorming session when you are by yourself, make sure you write fast and do not engage in any judgments or evaluations until you are done with your list. If you are brainstorming as a team, it is helpful to pass the pen around. Maybe have someone write down one idea, then pass the sheet of paper to the next person who writes down one idea. Write quickly.  Keep going for a set amount of time- maybe ten minutes. Set the rule that there is no talking during this process. Team brainstorming in this manner ensures that introverts are able to contribute equally. The overall project will benefit the most through everyone’s input.

When you get to the evaluation stage of the brainstormed ideas, don’t limit yourself to just the list, sometimes the list will inspire other ideas. Another common way that people engage in brainstorming that is not effective is that they automatically take the first list and everyone votes on which idea they like best. You still may not have the best idea or solution, so allowing expansion on the first run of brainstorming often generates more and even better ideas.

I would love to hear about your brainstorming techniques.
