Don’t Let Illusion Defeat You: Think SoulFire

Written on September 11, 2013 at 5:09 pm

The picture posted below is what inspired me to write on the topic of illusion.

I mean, look at that! It's an illusion of the highest order. The Merriam-Webster dictionary defines illusion as “the state or fact of being intellectually deceived or misled.”

When I write about SoulFire, when I discuss SoulFire agents, when I coach on how to live a SoulFire life, what I'm talking about is the ability to cut through the illusion.

Your life is loaded with illusion and, in fact, much of what we perceive daily is just that. Each of us goes through …

High - achievers often believe that more is always better. 

They use this belief to create both their successes and their excesses.

Wanting more and obtaining more produces more.  Because societies often measure success quantitatively rather than qualitatively, people who do more and get more are deemed to be successful and honored if not revered by society.

The “success” of more also often creates a sense of “wunderkind” or “ubermensch."  The super successful believe in their infallibility and or their untouchability.  We see this on a daily basis in the …

Too Many Hats? Time to Add a Team Member

Written on April 9, 2012 at 2:33 pm

How many hats can you wear in your real estate business until they are balanced so precariously on your head that they begin to topple uncontrollably toward the ground?

Not even a master real estate productivity coach can answer that question for you.

We will tell you from experience, however, that not only does every PERSON have a limit; so, too, the growth potential of every BUSINESS in any industry has a limit as well.

And that is truer than ever for real estate agents across the country who are trying to take their business and productivity to new levels.…

When will you quit?

Written on September 29, 2011 at 1:00 pm

A High Achiever, Success Oriented, Goal Setting, Entrepreneur or Top Tiered Manager never quits.

Quit while you’re ahead? No Way. There’s still more success to be had.

 

As a High Achiever, I feel proud of that fact, do you? A more difficult question, though, does your family feel proud that you never quit? Not your mom or dad per se, but your partner or spouse? What about your children?

 

They may feel proud of you and see your value as a High Achiever, but in your refusal to quit, do they feel loved, appreciated, and cared for?

I …

Are you satisfied?

Written on September 28, 2011 at 1:39 pm

 

If you are a Type A personality, or in other words, a High Achiever, we understand that having big dreams, plans, and goals comes naturally to you.  You know how to work hard and multi-task, and how to attract new opportunities.

You see more, want more, and can do more for your family and in your business.

 

People like you achieve many things through their natural temperament and talents alone.

 

If your goal is to succeed in business while raising a family, your natural temperament will take you most of the way.  Satisfaction, however, may be more …

Success, Guilt, and High Achievers

Written on May 31, 2011 at 3:40 pm

I was just thinking today about some common themes that are coming up with some of my high achieving coaching clients.

My guess is that it is striking a cord with me because I have a tendency to struggle with these issues myself.

(By the way...in the middle of writing this blog, my husband came across a podcast with Tom Delong, Harvard Business School professor, called “The Hidden Demons of High Achievers” that absolutely HITS THE NAIL ON THE HEAD regarding this topic, so after you read this... check out the link at the bottom! It's pretty short (compared to …
