Addiction

addiction-the-new-normal-2

I was asked yesterday, to write on addiction. It’s an odd thing to write about, because I have never had an addictive personality. Having said that, addiction has touched my life in various ways from the people I know to people I have coached, relatives and friends, many of whom are on this journey. Christmas is a tough time of year for millions, and for an addictive personality, it is easy to forget by hitting the bottle, using street drugs, gambling, sleeping with someone new every night, just so that they don’t have to feel their emotions, and do not have to feel the complete isolation and disconnect that is theirs in their daily existence.

5 Productivity Tips for the Entrepreneur

The Entrepreneur.png

Whether you are a new, or seasoned entrepreneur, your business depends on many things.  Setting goals, knowing how to prioritize and moving into action are crucial.

Here are some tips to help you.

  1. Schedule your time and your to do’s . Don’t just keep a bunch of sticky notes available, actually schedule it.  Use the Create Your Day! The Empowerment Calendar, so that it becomes a place where you enter tasks and to do’s that will get done in a reasonable amount of time that is actually achievable.
  2. Get up and do something every hour. Sitting for hours on end isn’t good for you. Get up and walk around, stretch, inhale and exhale deeply several times before you sit down again
  3. Hire a mentor coach, like me. Find a mentor early in your development phase. You will go faster and farther with someone who has been there, and who knows how to do business as an entrepreneur.
  4. Delegate, delegate, delegate.  Hire a virtual assistant, or personal assistant, even if it is only for a few hours a week. Get your projects organized and tasks completed in a very efficient manner.
  5. Start your day in gratitude.  Start every single day with an attitude of gratitude. It will shift your vibrational frequency and allow for more to be grateful for. Meditate. Meditating first thing in the morning and/or in the evening, clears your head and helps you to feel more focused and aligned with your vision.
  6. Bonus tip:  Be good to yourself and celebrate your daily achievements.

Chat With Cat

I have recently begun asking my group at YesYOUCan Empowerment For Women for email questions about life, relationships, worthiness, forgiveness, self esteem, dating and so much more.  Here is a response to one of our member emails.  

Question:

A friend has an adult child she is estranged from.  That child is under some misconceptions about her mother and uses public media to propagate those misconceptions.   She believes what she believes, but it just isn’t right.  What can the friend do?

Answer:

This is such a timely question. Many of us use Social Media for business, and for sending out positive vibes into the world.

People believe what they believe, and we can tell ourselves a story about what might have happened and it can become reality.  And then there are posts, asking for help about a certain situation.  Remember, there are two sides to every story.

In my last video, I touched on the idea that communication is quickly becoming a lost art. It’s easy to post something on social media because you don’t have to deal with the emotions of it.

When people are estranged from one another, it can often because there is some misconception about what has happened in the relationship. Posting about it online creates responses from strangers, who have no idea what might actually be happening within the family dynamic. This may support the beliefs of the person posting, but it may not actually be the truth. That kind of solution to a problem can’t be found on social media. It needs to be dealt with, within the family.

When a person posts something troubling they are Reaching out. They are asking for help. The question is, why? What is missing in their lives that makes them have to reach out in this way?

Here are a couple of things your friend can do.

Start with I feel messages:

I feel…

I don’t want to…

How can we…

  1. I feel hurt by that there are misconseptions about our relationship floating around public media.
  2. I don’t understand why this needs to be a public issue.
  3. How can we work together to solve this problem. You might notice that not once did I use the word You in the I feel messages. As soon as you add the word you, it will put the other person on the defensive, and that doesn’t work.

Set aside some time to speak with the estranged daughter, email her, or send a message about your concerns.

Hold your daughter able to work it out.   Let her know she is loved unconditionally, and that when she is ready to talk, you are there for her.

Ask the person who is posting, what they are hoping to gain from posting.

I sure hope this is helpful.

Please continue sending questions to lifecoachcaterina@gmail.com and I will answer them on a live video.

Harnessing The Power Of The Law Of Attraction

Everyone in the world is surrounded by a thought atmosphere. Through this force we’re either drawing in or forcing back. Like draws in like and…we draw in exactly what we are in mind.

The law of attraction is the principle by which you draw into your life that which is in vibrational alignment with your awareness; your thoughts, feelings, opinions and attitudes, whether you’re mindful of them or not.

This is why the starting point on the road to successfully and deliberately manifesting your desires is to become aware of the thoughts and feelings that are producing your experience and to take responsibility for your reality.

Accepting responsibility for your life without judgment is both empowering and liberating. When you understand that you are source and not a subject of your existence, you are able to modify it.

Desire breathes life into your dreams and fuels imagination and anticipation. As you connect with your desire, your imagination, and positive thoughts around your goal, you show up differently in the world. To connect with the desire you’ve got for your goal, merely ask yourself “Why do I want this?” As you answer the whys; passions and emotions come to life and begin to flow.

When envisioning your desire, engage your imagination by using all of your senses. Imagine not only the visualizations, but also the sounds, textures, smells and tastes of your dreams coming true. Even more significantly, think of the feelings of the outcome you look for as these contain the strongest magnetic force for drawing in your desires. How you feel about what you imagine will decide whether you’ll successfully draw it in or not.

To successfully draw in your hopes it’s crucial that your feelings are congruent with them. If, for instance, you desire a happy loving relationship but bear negative feelings about the opposite sex, love, or yourself for that matter, you will produce counter results.

Feed your ambitions not your concerns. Feed your successes not your failures. Your ideas, beliefs and the focus with which you utilize them are directional. They’re heading somewhere. If they feel good, so will be your destination.

Your world is a manifestation and extension of the entirety of your mind, a holograph of your awareness. It’s also a platform and gateway with which the universe can convey with you via signs, signals and whispers in your daily life that serve as arrows and prods to guide and aid you on your way.

Recognize and be thankful for the love and goodness in your world and in your gratitude you’ll open to receive it at an entirely new level in addition to inviting more of the same into your life. As you open to obtain the gifts and bounty that are already in your life, you will become more open to take in new gifts, love and successes in your life.
