After 20+ years of research on the world’s most successful people, the High Performance Institute discovered that highly accomplished people are very clear about what it means to be their best. Highly accomplished people understand how they want to show up in the world, communicate with others, and take on the qualities needed to succeed. They keep these ideas front and center, so they are sure to live as their best selves every day.
When I work with people as part of my high-performance consulting and success coaching program and through on-site workshops and off-site leadership retreats, I share the concept of gaining clarity on what it means to be your best. I then stress important tools and strategies everyone should use to remind them to live from their best throughout each day.
This may sound obvious at first, but are you doing it? Many people just stumble through life and hope for the best. However, people that live successful lives don’t just hope; they...
If your response to the question “What does success feel like?” is “I have no idea” or “I think I know but I’ve never experienced it,” then you’ve already identified the problem holding you back from achieving a successful life.
The secret to success—both personally and professionally—is creating feelings within you that emanate an energy matching the life that you want. You get back what you give out, so what are you giving out from an energy perspective? Once you know this, all you need to do is generate energy within you that matches the future you want. Soon after, more opportunities to experience that life will start to arrive with ease instead of stress.
Let me explain more clearly. Ask yourself these questions:
Energize and empower yourself by understanding that everything is energy.
Once you understand that everything is energy, you can stop feeling like a victim of outside circumstances and regain your personal power to create a successful life.
Researchers have discovered that within every atom, nothing is solid, and in fact, everything at the sub-atomic level is actually energy. They also have begun to uncover that the focus of your thoughts and feelings creates an energy that emanates from you, which affects the reality around you. Why does that matter to you?
I’ve discovered that this energy gives you more power over the outcome of your life than you may have ever imagined before. Everything in your life is a reflection of the energy that you give off. The more you elevate and expand your energy (or the way you feel), the more you elevate and expand your life, leading to greater success levels. Once you recognize this, you’ll want to start enhancing, uplifting and...

Being happy, vibrantly healthy and full of vitality – this is the secret to a good life.
Thomas Jefferson once wrote, “Without health, no pleasure can be tasted by man.”
Feeling alive and full of energy and experiencing the fullness that life has to offer – this is the answer to loving life, loving yourself, and loving others. I ask you today to think about what love means to you in your life.
Think about someone or something that you love. It can be a friend or family member, your pet, your home or your car, the beautiful trees, the mountains and the sky, the glistening white snow, or your favorite comfy chair and your favorite cup of tea. Whatever brings you joy, you will find it is a source of love and therefore a source of good health. The love you feel in your heart brings happiness to...
“Life is Short. Kiss slowly, laugh insanely, love truly and forgive quickly.” –Paulo Coelho
This is a powerful quote from a great author, but what if you feel that love is missing from your life?
Are you waiting for some great love to show up at your door, hoping your significant other will change so that you can experience more love, or relying on someone else to make you happy?
If so, you may be missing a key point that is blocking love from your life. You’re giving all of your creative power away to some outside person or circumstance. It’s time to take back your inner power and create more love in your life. This article will not only help you improve your current relationships, but it will also help you create new, more fulfilling ones too.
Let me ask another question to make a point: If you are feeling angry, bitter, lonely, needy, unlovable, unattractive, etc., would you want to hang out with yourself? Probably not.
What you feel inside creates...
You can spend countless hours writing and repeating your goals, but I’m here to tell you that you won’t experience positive change — which you deserve — until you change your energy.
So, what do I mean when I say “energy”? I’m talking about the energy that emanates from you based on your feelings. You can think about achieving certain goals all you want, but if you’re not feeling the expansive energy of positive expectation, those goals won’t come to fruition. Or, achieving them will be very difficult, leading to a result that wasn’t quite what you envisioned for yourself. From an energy- or feeling-based perspective, what you give off is what you get back.
You are a magnet to the feelings (not the thoughts) that you generate from within you. What happens around you is a reflection of what is happening inside of you. So, it is critical that you improve the way you feel while you define and...
You deserve to live a life that isn’t consumed by worry, stress, and fear. The energy those feelings generate will only create more of the same. You are a magnet to the feelings (not the thoughts) that emanate from you. Whatever you give out, you get back, and when you live in a constant state of worry, you create more reasons to worry, and soon, you feel like a victim—helpless to your environment.
It’s time to take back your power and create a better life. It’s actually far simpler than what others may teach you. All it takes is deliberate intention to change the way you feel and act based on those better feeling energies.
Make the choice now, and don’t waste another minute.
You worry and stress about things because you inherently believe that by worrying, you somehow protect yourself. But that’s not true! Worry and stress actually build walls of resistance all around you, and working against those walls...
While the holiday season is meant to bring about feelings of peace, joy, and happiness, it’s also a source of stress for many. All that is happening in the country and around the world may potentially amplify those feelings this year. According to various polls, more than 80% of us are experiencing more stress than usual.
Chronic stress can wreak havoc on your body, well-being, and overall life. It puts your body into fight-or-flight mode, which causes blood to drain from the brain and into the extremities. Its biological purpose is to give you more power to fight or run; unfortunately, this leaves you unable to think clearly. Stress also weakens your immune system, which increases the likelihood of illness. On top of all that, it messes with your metabolism and melatonin, which is a sleep hormone, causing weight gain and exhaustion.
As I explain in my latest best-selling book, Stressless Success: The Surprising Secrets to a Life...
The holidays are meant to be a time of gathering together to share good cheer. Any year, this preconceived idea of what the season “should be” can create or exacerbate feelings of loneliness for those who don’t have friends or family around or who feel lonely even when they’re with others. Now, with the latest lockdowns, COVID-19 restrictions, and suggestions from health advisors to limit the number of people at holiday celebrations, feelings of loneliness may become even more widespread and intense.
However, I firmly believe that this is a time to experience more joy, not less, and to appreciate all the good we do have in our lives despite our struggles. But trying to force good feelings is NOT the answer.
Many prominent people speak and write about the power of positive thinking, and yes, it’s a great practice when things are already going your way. But when you feel lonely, you can’t just leap to false...
I know that you’ve been stressing and struggling with how to achieve success. Maybe you’re having a hard time just getting through the day. I promise you—I’ve been there.
Years ago, I was in the corporate world working in high-pressure, high-powered positions for Fortune 500 companies. I was a super-overachiever and experienced incredible success, but the stress and pressure took me down until I landed in the hospital debilitated by an autoimmune disease that no one seemed to be able to understand or control. After a few years of learning how to heal my body naturally, I hit another wall that caused me to crash and burn. My husband of 26 years walked out on me and our son, Nathan. Not only did he leave me heartbroken and our family ripped apart, but he also left me on the brink of financial disaster.
Here’s the thing: life throws us challenges. That’s just what it does. Some will be small, and some will feel impossible. But there is no need...
