• The journey to self is one of monumental importance. It is one that leads us to our true selves and allows us to start making our own dreams come true.

    Through the sometimes bumpy journey there are many things to learn, offering us a chance to open up to the real possibilities that lay at our feet.

    Journey to Self explores the steps that we take to find our true identity, to strengthen our sense of self, and to bring inner peace into our lives.

March 6th Journey to Self: Healing and Forgiveness

Today’s guest Deborah Akbar was such an inspiration. She has lifted herself up and overcome major obstacles and she is determined to keep going. She spoke today about the challenges of being differently-abled, learning how to forgive, and how she began healing herself.

Highlights from the show:

  • After her accident Deborah put herself through college, met her current husband, had another child, and entered the Miss Wheelchair American pageant.
  • Deborah spoke on the importance of listening to your own body and finding health care professionals that you fill can meet your needs.
  • Forgiveness is an important step in healing from the past, not only forgiving others but forgiving yourself.
  • Letting go of the past and allowing the positive in your life is crucial for healing to begin

Deborah will be traveling to Miami, Florida this week to receive a treatment that has a 98% success rate of giving her back some functioning in her limbs and even the ability to walk again. She will be coming back to the show to give us an update on the treatment and her progress.

Combining parenthood with working at home.

There has been an evolution of individuals choosing to work at home, to be able to be with their children while making income and having their own careers. It isn’t always easy and there is still much that needs to be balanced, but it is a reality for thousands of men and women that have embraced the entrepreneur spirit in order to take control of their own careers and to have the control over their time to find the balance of rewarding careers with a fulfilled family life.

What are some of the tricks to working at home?

How do you find balance among chaos?

Tune into Journey to Self ~ http://blogtalkradio.com/journeytoself. Thursday February 21st at 12pm cst / 1pm est as my guest Sandra Weber from Work at Home Family Talk Radio as we talk about Parenthood and Working at Home.

February 7th Journey to Self: Keeping the Passion Fires Burning

It was an exciting show today, or as my guest Katherine Reschke would say, “It was FANTABULOUS”

Today Katherine and I talked about how to stay passionate about our passions.

  • Sometimes you need to re-evaluate your passion, let it evolve or check in with your “Why” this is a normal part of the process, don’t get discouraged
  • Networking groups can open doors that you never thought of, remember to open up and allow.
  • Ways to keep yourself motivated:
    • outsource the tasks you dislike
    • use a vision board – you can create your own at www.catalogofdreams.com
    • use visualization to see your outcomes
    • get the support you need through friends, teachers, mentors, coaches, or a mastermind group. STAY WAY FROM DREAMKILLERS!!
  • Practice good self-care, it makes a difference between success and struggling!!

Join Katherine and I Friday at 11am cst as we talk more about how a strong foundation is needed to follow your passion on Katherine’s brand new Blog Talk Radio Show, The Passion Project.

    January 10th Journey to Self: Tips to a Prosperous Life

    WOW!! What a fantastic show with Kim Emerson today, and then Kim and I had the honor of being guest on Rebecca White’s Heal Yourself Talk Radio Show (listen to HYTR Show).

    Kim took us on the journey using great analogies to describe what we need to do along the way to create prosperity in our lives. Here are a few of the highlights of what we discussed:

    • How you treat and care for yourself is hugely important to your success, you need to know that you are worth your dreams. Show yourself that you matter by taking care of yourself and making time for yourself. If you don’t you will run out of gas along the way.
    • Enjoy the journey even the side trips! You never know when an opportunity in disguise will be at your feet.
    • You don’t have to make the journey alone, find the support that is right for you. We mentioned working with coaches, mentors, and joining a group of like minded individuals. Kim runs a fabulous prosperity yahoo group that is filled with support and wonderful people to be with you on your journey.
    • There is always a silver lining to even negative situations, be open to finding them.
    • OPEN UP AND ALLOW, give yourself permission to welcome and allow abundance into your life.

    What a fabulous show! Of course it helps with a such a great guest like Jane Carroll!

    Today we talked about creating a new you for the new year and got some “Bertha-Sized” tips from Jane on how to create, attract, and follow through on what we want to bring into our lives.

    Some highlights from the show:

    • When setting goals for the new year focus on the “whys” not the details.
    • Let go of rigid thinking, sometimes what we want comes to us in different forms.
    • Don’t think in “All or nothing” terms, as Jane said, “There is no such thing as an all or nothing dream..”
    • Focus on the joy of life, be in the moment!
    • Good self-care is the cornerstone of your dreams and goals!

    Jane is offering a great opportunity for those that are looking to make their New Year goals a reality with newly priced coaching sessions, bringing affordable coaching to those that way to change their lives!! (Visit her website for details, hurry she still has spaces available)
