As an inspiration and motivation coach for over 10 years, I have come across many people who say they want something but they just don’t tap into the muscle it takes to produce results. Initially I was ‘gentle’ with them, allowing them to go at their own pace. Some broke through and some, well, they didn’t. So, I myself have developed and shifted over the years in such a way that I no longer address this in as a passive way. If a client comes to me with a passion, I teach them to become obsessed and committed in order to bring about their vision. I am not attached to watch people want as I am attached to helping them get there. Watch this video to ignite with YOUR passion and if you are truly committed, then TAKE MASSIVE ACTION.

this is who I am this is what I do thrive any way fran asaro‘It’s who I am – It’s what I do’! My sister has been telling people that I was born to be a coach. She facetiously  says that I have been coaching since I was 3, and that people have been coming to me for coaching my entire life. That part is true.

So why then is she so surprised when she shares a dilemma with me and I come up with a solution? I’m not saying that I am right or that I should be doing this… I agree that some people just want to vent… But you know what, as I tell my sister every time it occurs, ‘It’s who I am – It’s what I do’!

So now this has become quite a joke between us… no matter what we do, if one of us is trying to change the other, we use that phrase. Even when it’s just plain silly. So when I talk too much or sing loud and awful and she comments or asks me to stop – my staple comment ‘It’s who I am – It’s what I do’! Try it on your people and have fun!

This article will probably raise some eyebrows. I do hope it raises those that could really use it.

Are you over performing in life and possibly underachieving? I work with many people who are out there day after day, beating the pavement, going to workshops, taking classes, organizing, envisioning and doing everything they are being told to do. Often the results are not satisfying. Is that you?

If you’ve been operating at a pace that isn’t yours but you think you need to in order to succeed, think again.

If we are supposed to be doing it someone elses way than why are so many people still struggling? I know there are many people out there who have amazing programs and systems that do work. But if you have tried and tried and it hasn’t, then don’t beat yourself up. While they work for some or many, they don’t work for all.

No need to let that worry you. If you are not succeeding doing it someone else’s way then consider doing it yours! What does that mean? It means to start listening to your own inner guidance system that will show you what to do. Begin sitting in silence and asking and listening for your personal direction. Believe it or not this is the shortest path to your vision. It really is.

Life isn’t supposed to hurt. I see so many people hurting in spite of their actions. Maybe the actions need to be more inspired than received at a seminar.

No one says you have to stop learning. Just be particular about what you allow into your belief system. Does it feel like a good fit? Or does it feel like it may be good for someone else but not for you. It’s ok not to follow a very successful person if it doesn’t feel right.

Today, take some time to plan your own path and feel the difference.

Enthusiastically,

Fran

Can you be gentle and still be successful? Can you be kind, patient, thoughtful and full of integrity while moving up the ladder of life? I do believe it’s the way of the future.

As we become more adverse to hard sales, domination, intimidation, bullying, and just plain power struggles, it’s nice to know that there are those who are doing it another way.

If you have been affected by the harshness of your environment, know that there are those who support a quieter and gentler path to greatness. Yes, there are MANY who have reached mega success following a less stressful path.

For today, observe those in your industry, your social environment, spiritual community and any other circle you are in to look for the gentle giant. You may not have noticed them before, but now that you know they exist, you will see them. If this way of being appeals to you, try it on for size. At the very least, it will feel much more comfortable.

Enthusiastically,
Fran

[tweetmeme]I know of a woman who allows her children to write on the walls of her home. When I questioned this she explained that she didn’t want to thwart their creativity and full self expression.

Being from a wonderful albeit structured family environment I had a hard time imagining myself condoning this exercise. I am a Life coach for goodness sake. I encourage my clients to live out loud and live a life by design – their own design. Wouldn’t that be the case for children too? So which is it then? Provide structure and strong guidance or support the ‘anything goes’ attitude?

Someone else I know feels that she was a square peg forced to fit into a round hole during her childhood. She wanted to dance and they asked her to sit and behave. She brought home animals and they asked her to stop. She thought differently from the rest, and they demanded she conform. Now in her late 50’s finds it difficult to stretch herself beyond her comfort zone and realize her visions.

I remember at 10 years old sitting next to a woman at a wedding. I had never met her and yet she spent a lot of time talking to me as if I was an adult. She looked in my eyes; She asked me open ended questions and made me feel like a star. I am eternally grateful to what she gifted me that day and have thought of her fondly ever since. I have also made it a point to do the same to other children.

Where in your childhood did someone profoundly impact who you are today?

Being a part of the growth of any child is an honorable task. What a gift to be able to support the individuality and identity of another. I suggest we step up a bit and see what we can do today to make a difference in a child’s life. Where can you challenge them to do something unique, say something they’ve never said, experience something they haven’t yet experienced? We may never know the impact that act has on them for life, however, I venture to think they will never be the same because of it. Dare yourself to be alive and kicking and pass that on to someone else.

Hmmm, I wonder, if my clients had the opportunity to draw on a wall or dance in the rain if they would have needed to come to me to learn how to live out loud!

Enthusiastically,
Fran

[tweetmeme]Let The Good Times Roll

Do you have anyone in your life who talks about their past a lot? You know, the person who reminisces about all the good times they had and how wonderful life was ‘back then’? It’s wonderful to recapture good times and laugh at how things were. It makes for great conversation and warm moments.

But what about letting the good times roll into the present and the future? Are you keeping your best years behind you or are you creating new memories for years to come? It’s so important to keep your fun thoughts on present and future to continue the moment of a good life.

What do you have to look forward to? A vacation? A new venture? Maybe a new love? When we begin to envision our lives expanding into wonderfulness it keeps us young at heart and having a reason to be alive!

Start by taking a few moments and jotting down what it is you would like to create for yourself. Don’t judge, just write it all down. Then make a check list and begin exploring some of those things. Some call this a bucket list. It doesn’t have to be something huge. You can write down that you want to have a sleep over party with your friends (yes even adults have sleepovers!) Or join a hiking group. Think big and think small. If it inspires you and it feels like fun, then write it down. Maybe you will do them all or not but how fun will it be to try to complete your list.

Maybe you can even give it a name. For instance, many of us have heard of a vision board. What about calling this your ‘Joy Board’ filled with all the things you want to do for fun and to create memories.

Hopefully, even the thought of a joy board will have your good times roll into your NOW. Fun was not just meant for our youth or our past. Create anew everyday!

Happy Wednesday
Enthusiastically,
Fran

[tweetmeme]There are times when we are gung ho about a project or a life change. We enthusiastically pursue our vision and have such optimism. Sometimes as we move forward we feel we are walking in quicksand. We know we are on the right track yet we can’t seem to make headway. What could possibly be the problem?

Often when things are not going smoothly, the reason is that we still have something in our energetic basement that needs tending to. Metaphorically, you can’t build a house without a solid basement or foundation. If there is a glitch in the basement wall, no need to even move another inch until that is addressed.

In life this could look something like this: You pursue a new business venture. You’ve been in business before, you know what to do. However this time it’s seems that everything you know or have done before will not work now. Could it be that there is something in your basement that still needs attention?

Chances are that you have an unresolved situation. Maybe you need to complete a previous business relationship. Maybe you want to approach finances differently than before. Or it could be that you have worthiness and confidence issues that are blocking your success.

This applies to any area of your life where you feel stuck. Consider taking a trip into your basement, not to mull, not to linger, but to assertively address the situation and then move forward as planned.
It may only take a short time once you discover it to the time you dissolve it. You are worth this.

Happy Tuesday

Enthusiastically,
Fran
