Reframe your thinking | Heather Vickery, Success Coach

Reframe your thinking 101

Is there an area of struggle or lack that you’re experiencing right now? Or a circumstance in your life that you would like to change? If so, I invite you to consider a possibility… What if your circumstance is being perpetuated by the way you’re thinking or speaking about yourself and your experiences? Each person views their world through a different, unique lens that is influenced by their lived experiences, ideas, concepts, emotions, etc. By reassessing these elements and choosing to live more intentionally, you can actually begin to reshape and reframe this lens by which you view the world. And, when you can reframe your thinking, in both your personal life and as a leader or business-owner, you can finally begin to create the

How To Celebrate Life So You Can Live A Life Worth Celebrating

How To Celebrate Life So You Can Live A Life Worth Celebrating

When my oldest daughter was born, I found myself eagerly celebrating every moment and every milestone—from the first smile and the first time she rolled over, to her first day of school, first heartbreak and even her first curse word that was used in the most perfect sentence. (Look, I love curse words, so no judgement from you, please! When a kid can use “this really pisses me off” in the right sentence that warrants a celebration!) My point is, parents do that for their children! They surround them with cheers, words of encouragement and clapping that reassures them that they’ve done something right, something wonderful! But I’m guessing that, as you got older, what was once considered an accomplishment suddenly became an expectation.  Somewhere

DREAMSCAPING – THE POWER OF CREATING A CLEAR VISION

Dreamscaping – The Power of Creating a Clear Vision

What do you believe is possible? If you could do or be anything in the world what would it be?  Vision work isn’t about building a strategic plan, or following a roadmap someone else put in front of you. And dreaming isn’t just a flight of fancy! Many of us are stuck in the creation mode of what we’re doing at this exact moment. And yet, we have no real clue what the hell we’re actually working towards!  The truth is, you can’t get where you’re going if you don’t know where that is! The journey towards finding true happiness is about dreaming up big, scary, wonderful things and then building them. It’s about being in the pursuit of your own greatness and believing in

Failure is the New Success | Blog post by Heather Vickery

Failure is the New Success | How to Leverage Failure For Personal Growth

Regardless of what you’ve heard, failure, as you know it, doesn’t actually exist. “If you’re not failing, you’re not trying hard enough” – Jillian Michaels Let’s talk about the giant elephant in the room. You already know that “there is no such thing as failure.” You’ve heard it before. But, for some reason, you don’t really believe it. I’d like to clear the air and send you into your week with an important reminder: Regardless of what you’ve heard, failure, as you know it, doesn’t actually exist. The traditional idea of failure doesn’t exist because it implies “the end” or “game over.” When, the truth is, it’s never the end. We keep going, we keep living… because we have to, right? We pick up the

Swbunking Common MYTHS About Setting Boundaries: You are worthy of setting boundaries for yourself

Debunking Common MYTHS About Setting Boundaries

Let’s talk truth, my friend, and let’s be really honest. How are you doing with setting boundaries for yourself? I know, from experience, that it’s not easy. It takes practice. Intentional Practice!  I also know the disappointment and shame you feel when you draw a line in the sand,  and then, knowingly, allow yourself or others to cross it. Broken boundaries suck! They cause you to blame yourself for everything and to treat yourself poorly. It’s important to understand why you break boundaries that you took precious time to create in the first place. ➜ Are you  overly concerned about disappointing others? ➜ Worried about causing friction in your relationships? ➜ Do you simply lack self-control? For many, boundary-building (a powerful form of self-care) is

3 Simple Strategies for Maintaining a Grounded and Heart-Centered Business

3 Simple Strategies for Maintaining a Grounded & Heart-Centered Business

Picture this, if you will… You’re heading down a promising path, diligently going through the motions of your routine in the name of performance and productivity. You’re doing everything right. But… One day, you wake up and five years have gone by. You look in the mirror and think… “how the f*ck did I get here?!” If you’ve found yourself experiencing this moment, and if you’re honest with yourself, then you know this has a lot more to do with what didn’t happen, rather than what did. You didn’t truly show up for yourself. Somehow, you got lost along the way. They say “stand for nothing, fall for anything,” right? This is SO true! By NOT setting intentions and showing up bravely (despite your fears),

Self-Trust: A Magic Wand

Learning to trust yourself is like having a magic wand. But it's not easy and takes a lot of work! Many of us have experienced a significant shift over the last several months. To put it simply, it’s been a period of true awakening. Whether in the way you conduct yourself professionally or the ways in which you move through your personal life. During this time of uncertainty, stress, and forced stillness, we’ve all learned something new. For many, it’s been an eye-opening experience, and I am no exception.  One of the things I think is most notable is that while there are many things we want to go back to, there are many things we want to leave behind! For about six weeks, I

When things get hard, focus on gratitude.

Do I like to make busy months more complicated? November is National Novel Writing Month (NaNoWriMo), and I’m participating once again! This challenge of writing 50,000 words over the course of the month pushes me to my limits. Friends, it’s hard and exhilarating and hard (did I already say that?). While I enjoy the writing process, and I’m clearly all for establishing better routines, producing that much content is no simple task. It requires clearly defined goals, firm boundaries, and a whole lot of positive mindset. But you know what? I deeply believe that I can do it! I live in a world of limitless possibilities and if I don’t know how to get somewhere – – well, I’m determined to figure it out. Now,
