Success Coach, Heather Vickery, talks about the importance of reflection and reassessment before setting new goals.

Reflect before setting new goals!

December Already?   Here I sit, a little in shock that it is December already. This year has flown by! I have celebrated the last of my four daughters’ birthdays and my own, breezed past a beautiful summer, started a new school year, coached many amazing clients, spoke to many amazing crowds, and created a powerful program to help corporate employees discover how leading from authenticity allows them to be more successful. I published 39 amazing episodes of The Brave Files Podcast and became a published co-author of Lose The Cape: The Mom’s Guide to Becoming Socially & Politically Engaged (& How to Raise Tiny Activists). I even participated in NaNoWriMo (trust me, that level of commitment to writing is intense but exciting!), began producing my

Boundaries – Your Key to Freedom!

A Love Affair… The most successful people out there, the ones who appear to have it all together, are in on an amazing secret. They know of something that basically guarantees their potential for greatness and they make it a daily habit. Guess what, so do I!   One might consider it a secret love affair. (That’s how amazing this is!) but I don’t want to keep this a secret! You should know about this awesome, life-changing habit. You deserve to be in on it.   So, are you dying to know what my love affair is?   It’s a love affair…with boundaries. Yep, boundaries.   Boundaries are the secret to success. Defining strong, healthy boundaries is the most empowering action you will take as

Expressing gratitude allows you to cultivate what is best within your life and enhance all experiences.

The Impact of Gratitude

Being grateful all the time isn’t easy. But it’s when you least feel thankful that you are most in need of what gratitude can give you: perspective. Gratitude can transform any situation. It alters your vibration, moving you from negative energy to positive. It’s the quickest, easiest most powerful way to effect change in your life – This I know for sure.” – Oprah   Over the last several years I have learned a lot about what it means to be grateful and how to make it a top priority in my life. Expressing gratitude towards myself and others has probably been the single most significant change I have implemented (and let’s be honest, in the last 5 years there have been a lot of

Prioritize your actions for best results. How do you want to be spending your time? Success Coach, Heather Vickery

For Best Results, Prioritize Your Actions

I am not proud of this story … This week, I caught myself underprepared and stressed because there is no freaking way I am going to get “it all” done in time! For me this week brings an online course launch, a new podcast episode, the beginning stages of two new books and, of course, taking care of my 1:1 clients and raising four little girls (and the list goes on)!   If you are anything like me, you want to do a good job with everything you do, but when your plate is this full, that seems nearly impossible. When things get this crazy it is easy to let overwhelm take over and just shut down. And you know what? Sometimes I do just

Real success comes from deeply understanding why you want something.

Lacking Motivation? Think again.

You may be searching for motivation, but that’s not where you should be looking.   No matter who you are or what your job is, consistent output is important. You may even say it’s crucial to success. The challenge, however, is that it doesn’t always come easy!   I wish someone would give me $1 for every time I have lacked motivation. I’d be sitting on a beach with a cocktail and a personal chef! Like most people, I spent a good period of my life thinking I was fighting for motivation. That “lack of motivation” was the root of my problems. But through a tremendous amount of hard work (and, funny enough, personal motivation), I have put a great deal of effort into managing

Heather Vickery reminds us that change is the only constant.

Everything Changes

There is one thing I know for sure, everything changes.   In fact, as I sit here, I am overwhelmed by the extreme amount of change surrounding me right now.   There are some obvious and fabulous ones like this brand-new website. I hope you love it because this sucker was one hell of a project. Big thanks to Crystal from Marketing Queen for putting up with me. One thing is very clear, I'm never ever going to be a web developer. Nothing stresses me out more than working on the back end of a website. Thank the universe for delegation!   This past year has been fraught with changes, most of them good. I am excited to say, I have an established and successful

Progress is Almost Never Linear

Wouldn’t it be nice if we could just dream something up, decide how to get it and then have all of the puzzle pieces fall perfectly into place? It’s a lovely little image, isn’t it? But reality is, our lives and businesses take many different twists and turns and, sometimes, we never get to that end dream because the path changes along the way. Or maybe you didn’t start with an “end dream.” Perhaps you are only now discovering a destination you want to reach.     Here’s why.   Progress is almost never linear.   Let that sink in for a minute. If we were to keep track of our lives on a line graph, you would see many dips in the graph. If

Joy Shared is Happiness Returned

If you have been hanging around for awhile, you have heard me talk about celebration a lot. I believe that celebration is a magic key that unlocks connection and happiness. Joy shared is happiness returned.     When you have been blessed, the act of sharing that blessing with others makes it infectious. If you have busted your ass to create something awesome, sharing it with others has the potential to inspire them and encourage them.   Have you ever noticed how hard it is to be mad at someone who walks around happy all the time? You might get annoyed, right? You might think, “How can this person always be so happy?” But you still cannot help but have a slightly elevated mood when you are

Un-had Conversations

I try really hard to pay attention to what the universe is telling me. I find that when I do so, I am always led in the right direction and come out in a good spot. In the last 18 hours, the idea of “un-had conversations” has appeared in my life, first in a conversation I had with a friend and just now while reviewing Aaron Anastasi’s book, “Your Prosperous Life.”     So what is an un-had conversation? It is simply a conversation that you have not had that you wish you had. Typically these conversations are hard to have and take a lot of trust and courage, but not always. Un-had conversations can be anything from telling a friend that you’re sad because

Welcoming to the first blog post of 2018!   Happy New Year, my friends! I don’t know about you but 2017 was a real zinger for me. While there were many wonderful things, it was a tough year and it brought forth a lot of resistance (literally and figuratively) and pain.

Together, we are going to shake things up!   I have identified 6 questions to help me gain clarity on the past year
