How to Overcome Fear of Failure In Business

When it comes to facing your fears, we are really faced with the “why” behind the fear.

For instance, we have fear because we are afraid we are going to experience three main types of pain: Loss Pain, Process Pain or Outcome Pain.

Loss pain is basically the fear that we are going to lose something in the process.

Process pain relates to the hardship you’ll endure going after a goal. For example, you know something will be a challenge and you aren’t looking forward to it, so that turns into fear.

Outcome pain is extremely common: it’s the fear that you’ll not get the desired outcome and therefore, don’t even begin.

We have all experienced these fears in our lives and I think it’s important to identify those fears so that we can over come our fear as well.

Hopefully this video will give you some insight into why we have fear and how to overcome the fears as well.

How to Lose Baby Weight

Losing weight can be a struggle for any woman. It can be particularly hard to lose weight when you’re a new mom. As a new mom you might experience things like low energy, no time, no patience, a lack of resources, as well as feelings of the baby blues, so to speak. New moms have a hard time losing weight because of a multitude of reasons.

I want to give you hope. I lost 45 lbs after having my first son and I’m about to go for it one more time. After having my second baby, I have 30 lbs to lose. I have a bullet-proof method of getting and keeping the weight off to get back to my pre-baby body.

Here are the four simple and easy to follow; methods I implemented to lose 45 lbs of baby weight:

1) Simple, easy to follow meal plan

Shortcut to Reaching Your Goals

The topic of goal setting and achievement has been on my mind for quite some time and today I want to share with you a goal setting tip and the skills to achieve your goals. If I just had a jump start, or if I just knew the steps to follow to reach my goal, I would be well on my way. Are you the type of person that wants a shortcut or something to jump start you in the right direction of that goal? Do you just need to know the steps and then you will be on your way to setting and reaching your goals? If this sounds like you, this is going to be a powerful message on how to achieve your goals.

When we were young, we had so many big dreams of what we were going to do, what we were going to be. We believed we could do anything! We didn’t let “reality” set in and skew that. I want to encourage you to start dreaming big again. At a pretty young age, I felt like this was stolen from me, and I feel like there are so many of us that feel the same way. I want you to set your goals, reach your goals and have those feelings of success and achievement.

Look around at what is going on around us, in our own lives along with the heavy burdens of what is going on in the world. Right now I am rereading the book The Compound Effect and also going through an online academy called High Performance Academy with Brendon Burchard and in both I am reminded of just how important your self talk is. How you talk to yourself, your mindset, is going to be the differentiating factor as to whether you reach your goals or not. I want to give you the steps to achieve your goals and some goal setting tips.

As many of you know I am a health and fitness coach, but that is just a small part of who I am and what I do. By nature, I am a person who wants to encourage people and I love helping people start and build businesses. There is one thing that changed my life, my business, my fitness, and my relationships and this is not new information, we all know this to be true, it is how we talk to ourselves, what goes on inside our brains, is what holds a lot of us back from achieving the life we want. I had all these people and circumstances, that I thought were holding me back, they were the reasons that I wasn’t able to move forward. What you are allowing yourself to think to yourself on a daily basis will be what pushes you towards your goal or it will push you farther away from it. If in your mind you think to yourself that you are fat, or that you could never get that business off the ground. Or if I was younger, or if I had a better wardrobe, then maybe I would feel more confident and put myself out there.

Pay attention to how you are talking to yourself and your self talk. God does not make junk. Naturally, things are going to happen, but you have control over how you are going to deal with it. You have the control, the final say, on whether you will accept the thought, meditate on it, or completely ignore it. Start meditating on the correct self talk and it will become easier to do over time. Write down your hesitations, or what may block you from getting what you want. Now, cross each one off and write the opposite. How to achieve your goals will start with you changing your mindset and what you allow in your mind to start with. Think of what you can do to change the things that wouldn’t serve you well. You will become your self fulfilling prophecy.

Tune out the negativity, this goes for negativity in the world around us as well. You choose what you allow to come into your brain and for me sometimes it means not watching the news which is filled with negativity much of the time. The subconscious mind takes commands very well and will move in the direction of what you are telling it. Become aware of what you are allowing into your brain and protect your mindset. How to achieve goals in life starts with your mindset. Success and achievement won’t just come to you without you first having the right mindset.

That’s the SECRET!! It is what you are thinking, and what you are filling your brain with, that will be the differentiating factor as to your ability to reach your goal.

Stop Struggling to Lose Weight

Are you tired of the struggling to lose weight? You may have received invitations in the past to join one of my online health and fitness boot camps. I don’t do these very often, they’re pretty few and far between, maybe once a quarter. I’m excited because I’m launching another weight-loss group starting soon.

There is an investment, the investment is in YOU! If you need help losing weight, I promise to deliver! I promise to give you a complimentary weight loss meal prep plan that uses the principles of the 21 Day Fix, one of Beachbody’s most popular programs . Along with accountability and motivation, you will get weight loss tips to help you achieve the results you want.

There is a financial investment, but the cool thing is you are getting the best meal replacement weight loss shake on the market, so your investment is going directly into your body. You’ve probably heard me rave about Shakeology before, which if you are already on Shakeology then your admittance to this group is completely free. If you’ve been waiting or wanting to try Shakeology, maybe you’re feeling like you just keep hitting a wall or not seeing the results you want with regards to your weight loss, then now is the time to get the extra motivation you need to stop the weight loss struggle.

Shakeology is going to reduce your cravings, it’s not magic, what it is is a meal replacement drink full of supplements, or superfoods, that deliver the best nutrition to your body. Your initial cost is only four dollars per day. I know it is crazy! Your investment of four dollars a day gets you the best meal replacement shake on the market that goes straight into your body. Can you even remember the last time you got a meal, a super healthy meal, that helps you lose weight and completely fuels your body with energy for four bucks? Can you imagine buying a healthy meal for only four dollars at the grocery store? We can’t even go through a drive-through and get something for that price, let alone a weight loss supplement packed with vitamins.

Make the commitment to yourself to stop struggling to lose weight. If this is something that you’re ready to do I need you to click the link and I look forward to working with you on your weight loss journey.  Have a wonderful day! Holly 🙂

Self Care Time Saving Tips for Busy Moms

Today I want to share with you some time saving tips I use to make sure I take care of myself without neglecting my kids.  I am a busy mom of a 3 year old and a 1 year old and as much as I love being a mom… let’s get real for a minute they can be a handful.

 

I don’t like to spend too much time on myself, including my workouts. All this without taking too much time away from my family. My top three tips for making sure you get your workouts in, feel good about yourself, without taking too much time away from your family are listed below.

Tip #1– Wash your hair every 2-3 days. I use dry shampoo on the days that I don’t wash my hair and I do my hair in cute styles, such as braids and cute up-dos. When I used to color my hair a lot, hairstylists would tell me that it really wasn’t good to wash your hair everyday.

Tip #2– Save time with your makeup. I sweat like crazy, especially when I am teaching fitness classes, but I have three products that work well for me and they last a long time. I wash my entire face and go heavy with makeup on the first day and then will wash my face, while avoiding my eye area.  This leaves my eye makeup good for another day at least.  There is ten minutes saved each day by not applying eye makeup.

Tip #3– Dealing with your workouts and what to do if you have little ones at home. If you are fortunate enough to belong to a health club that offers a kids club, then put the kids in there and get at least a 30 minute workout in while the kids are in the kids club.  If this is not an option for you, I would suggest a stroller walk with the kids, I often take my kids with me in the double stroller.

Figure out how you can save time and not feel frumpy at the same time. I do like to get up and get dressed, I know I feel better if I am wearing a dress, even though I am a stay at home mom. For me, it makes me feel better about myself. Make sure you don’t give up on yourself! Make sure you take time for yourself even if it means you are taking your kids with you to make time for you. Try to exercise at least 10-20 minutes at least five days a week.

Don’t give up on yourself just because you are a busy mom, use these time saving tips to look and feel good about yourself.

Productivity Tip for You

One quick productivity tip for you today!  One might think that since I work from home, running an online business, that I  just stay in pajamas or sweats all day.  For me, pajamas and sweats don’t make me feel like working.   My productivity tip for entrepreneurs like myself, especially those that work from home, is to dress for the occasion, meaning dress for work, even if you aren’t leaving the house.

This morning after taking my boys on a walk, I took a quick shower and put on a cute dress that I know makes me feel good and ready to work.   It was while working at Powder Blue Productions for Bret and Chalene Johnson that I learned firsthand about dressing for your mindset.  Even though we were a workout based company and rarely had other people come into the office, former owners Bret and  Chalene wanted us to dress nice in the office.  When you dress for business or work, you tend to be more productive than if you just put on something comfy like sweats.

When you are dressed and feel confident, the rest of your day will follow. Think about how different clothes make you feel and how different you carry yourself when you are wearing certain clothes.  Or how your confidence level changes in different outfits, we all have those certain outfits that make us feel good and ready to take on whatever the day has in store for us.   I have found that my work from home style definitely affects my productivity mindset. Author, Personal Development Speaker and mentor for me (from afar), Brian Tracy, believes in the idea that if you dress for success your mindset will follow.

Dress so that you feel confident and the work you do will exude the same confidence!

Have a great day!  Holly

Sore Muscles and How to Avoid

I just taught Turbo Kick and one thing I do religiously is take a post workout drink to make sure my muscles recover and are less likely to be sore. The number one thing to do within 15-45 minutes of a hard workout or a hard day is to drink a post workout drink to replenish your proteins and carbohydrates. This will refuel your body and help repair your body which means your body will feel less sore.

One of the best ways I have found to fight fatigue and reduce muscle soreness is to drink a post workout drink to replace the nutrients your body has burned through during your workout. By doing so, you are helping yourself get through the day, along with  upcoming days.

Hope you have a great day. Follow me for more information regarding what supplements can do for you and your body.  I have been in the fitness industry for a long time and would love to answer any questions you may have relating to your health and wellness.
