de-stress with these 4 questions

De-stressWithThese4Questions

I’ve recently begun to dive into “The Work” of Byron Katie.

For those who don’t know Byron Katie, she is a speaker, teacher, and author who travels around the world helping people release themselves from their stressful thoughts.

And if you are anything like myself, stressful thoughts are something that need tending to now and again.

After reading her book, Loving What Is, I’ve had the chance to apply her simple framework in my own life and in the lives of some of my clients.

The results have been pretty powerful.

To truly understand this process, I highly recommend reading her book and watching her do The Work with people.

Today, I’d like to walk through Katie’s four simple questions to show how they can be applied to any stressful thoughts you may have now or in the future.

 

TheLivelyShowWithAmberHousely

Today’s Lively Show episode is near and dear to my heart: investing in yourself.

For many years I thought learning was best done through experience alone, rather than books, classes, and conferences.

But my views are now completely reversed. I am now a huge advocate for learning from relevant sources as much as possible.

Amber Housley embodies this spirit of learning and investing in yourself more than anyone else I know online. So I asked her to be on today’s episode to share her learning tips and tactics with us.

She is constantly expanding her skills and as a result has done a remarkable job building a profitable lifestyle business while juggling a full-time job and raising two young children.

In today’s episode, Amber shares how she invests in herself wisely, particularly now that she has the two littles to care for, and how she gets the most of her educational experiences.

TheDifferenceBetweenInspirationAndMotivaiton

Today I’d like to share a story that helps illustrate the difference between motivation and inspiration when taking action in our lives.

This is a tale I share in Life with Intention Online and during speaking engagements to help illustrate the difference between these two approaches.

Once you hear the story, you’ll be able to identify your motivation vs. inspiration in your own life.

TheGuesthouseHotelLobbyProjectUpdate

Lately, more and more of my time is being spent on The Guesthouse Hotel project that I’ve worked on over the past year.

I’ve already shared the hotel branding before and after on the blog.

But the hotel lobby progress has been shared primarily through Instagram.

What started out as an empty lot last summer:

The start of April brings a new wallpaper! I have to say, this background is perhaps my personal favorite so far.

IfYouAreFeelingLost

Last week’s Ask Me Anything was a lot of fun! It was so great to help so many of you in such a personal way. I plan on doing another one of these AMA’s in a few months, so stay tuned!

In the meantime, I’d like to address one of the popular phrases that stuck out to me in answering the questions you shared.

“I feel lost.”
