Want More Success? Take More Risks!

I don’t know about you, but some days I feel like I can take on the world—and others, not so much.

I know that without a doubt, no matter how I prepare or start my day, there will simply be days that I lack motivation. On these days, I’m OK with grinding through… or giving myself a little grace and vegging out on the couch for a show or two.

After all, it’s all about balance, right?

That said, for the most part I know that I it’s my job to SHOW UP for myself, my family and my teamand I love it. What I’ve found over the years is that the more risks I take, the bigger (and better) the return.

This could mean…

—-> Tossing caution to the wind and signing up for my biggest speaking engagement YET!

—-> Or, learning a new skill that will only improve my current coaching methods.

—-> Or, it could even mean setting big, scary, hair, lofty goals for the year that I want to CRUSH.

It’s all about making BOLD AND BEAUTIFUL decisions that breaks open the space for you to grow.

But, hey, I know that’s sometimes easier said than done.

To help fuel your fire, here are some of my best tricks for setting the healthy growth mindset you’ll need to become a bada** business risk taker, too:

  • Find time for YOU. If your life is anything like mine, then this probably means the morning hours are yours before the kids wake for school and the house gets CRAZY!

    I know it may be hard at first, but try to wake at least an hour before the house does so you can stretch or workout, eat, sip your morning coffee and plan your day in peace. This could also be the time you meditate if that’s something you’ve found that works for you. THIS IS YOUR TIME… use it wisely.
  • Once you’ve found a rhythm that works, stick to it! Consistency is essential for success. Will you have mornings that you hit the ‘snooze’ button five times? SURE… but get up the next day and get back at it.
  • Be intentional with your actions. Everything you’re doing should have an end result that generates growth (and ideally, a profit). Don’t waste your time with activities (or people) that aren’t helping you to move the needle forward.
  • GET INSPIRED! Surround yourself with people and things that motivate you to BE GREAT… to take those risks… AND FIND YOUR FREEDOM. For me, I continuously find new books that will prompt me into action.


So far, my three favorite books are:

You Are a Badass by Jen Sincero

Girl, Wash Your Face by Rachel Hollis

Girl Code by Cara Alwill Leyba

Finally, accountability is ESSENTIAL for growth and success. You can say you’re going to DREAM BIGGER all you want… but if a colleague, coach or yourself doesn’t hold you accountable for it… than it’s just talk.
