Motivation Monday:  $29 Brouhaha

Motivation Monday: $29 Brouhaha

Become a subscriber to Motivation Monday, click here $29 Brouhaha This past week, actor/activist Gwyneth Paltrow got some serious heat when Rock Star chef Mario Batali challenged her to food shop using only $29 in a bid to raise awareness and money for the Food Bank For NYC.  The city of NY is in a food crisis.  Rather than focusing on someone's financial status and rip them for that, the real question is, what is NY going to do... and more importantly raise awareness around it.  Which is exactly what has been happening.  Even though there has been a lot of bashing, Gwyneth did take the challenge and it has raised awareness.  You can read her account of it here. At an earlier point in my life when I decided to move from RI to CA  I was on a stricter budget all the way around.  I chose to eat healthily and ate the same thing every day.  Now that I think of...

Becoming A Better Person

Becoming A Better Person

Twelve years ago, I made a commitment to myself to become a better person.   That decision came in the aftermath of my sister Lisa's death in the Station Night Club Fire.  After being in RI for 5 weeks after the tragic event, I was ready to come back to my life in Los Angeles.  It was time to return to my home and continue my life.  Very much in shock, and feeling a pull to go under, I knew that decision would give me focus... even though I didn't know what it meant. Everyone has those moments they want to give up. When life has just toppled you over once again, and the weeble isn't wobbling. It's got too many nicks in its bottom, it's become uneven. It slants a little, and when you push it, it falls over.  Every time I got pushed over, I got closer to the edge.  Fueled by severe depression, survivors' guilt and PTS, for a while,...

Focus On Your Outcome

  Focus On Your Outcome   As you set goals, you should have an outcome in mind.  For example, you may be like my client John, a high powered player in the entertainment business.  He would find himself stressed every time he had an important meeting or event to attend because his weight fluctuated so much.  He had an expensive wardrobe and was filled with dread every time he went to his closet, scared that he wouldn't fit into his clothes. By eliminating the limitations around his weight issues, we were then able to design John's outcome of being able to fit into his wardrobe at any time.  Every detail of his outcome was clear to him - he could see it, feel it, own it and rock it.   His health and mindset goals supported his outcome, and he is now confident at all times that he can wear anything in his closet. Like John, any time you feel you are out of sync with...
