One of the things coming out of this pandemic for me is a ‘getting back to my roots’ sort of experience.
And in doing so, I’m realizing something even more deeply than I knew it before. And that is. . .
Daily rituals and practices are NOT just for the times of chaos.
Over the past several years, I’ve worked with numerous people in my mastermind and coaching programs and at the backbone of this work are rituals and practices.
Most people have NONE when they come to me and most of them will say they *only* do that sort of thing when times are tough and they need support.
Here’s what I know. . .
We need support ALL THE TIME. Not just during periods of crisis. In fact, I’ve found that the more support we have during ‘good’ times, the less impactful those ‘bad’ times are.
Not that the ‘bad’ times are less ‘bad’ – but that the effects of those instances are less. We can rebound faster and healthier. We’re more resilient when we feel supported BEFORE trouble hits.
The BEST time to start daily rituals and practices like meditation, journaling, setting goals, prayer, and all those things, is when things are going well.
And that way, when things get shitty, we have the habits of doing those things to carry us through. We have the stability of habit and ritual and practices to keep us balanced and poised in the face of adversity.
The next best time to begin daily rituals and practices?
Because listen, as I was thinking about this today, I took a look back over the past 15 years of my life and I noticed a pattern. . .
My resiliency and ability to bounce back after periods of turmoil is directly proportionate to how much support I had prior to the period of strife and distress.
For example, 7 years ago I owned a construction company that was doing very well. So well in fact, that my partner decided to embezzle hundreds of thousands of dollars from the company for his own personal use.
And when I started digging into everything, he took off with all of my company’s assets – trucks, tools, materials, supplies, machinery and even employees. And of course, money. In the end, he left me with $2.5 million worth of debt and a huge tax bill.
I was also sued 10+ times by our suppliers and vendors and others we owed money to – including the State of Washington.
But I had an amazing network of support from friends, family, and coaches to simple daily practices and rituals that I was able to draw upon to keep me sane.
And because of that – because of those people, the resources, the tools, the rituals – I had in place, I was not only able to stay sane during an insane period of time in my life, I was also able to eliminate ALL of that debt AND clear each of the lawsuits. . .
In less than 3 years.
That’s why when I woke up yesterday morning with the idea to create a 30 day practice around journaling and other rituals and tools I’ve used for so long, I knew I couldn’t delay in creating it. I knew I had to create it immediately.
JOURNEY OF DISCOVERY: Create Your Dreams in 30 Days
A 30 day course using journaling and other tools to create and manifest your dreams and visions – even in times of confusion.
We’ll dive into topics like:
📓 productivity – how and when to take action
📓 big dreams – discover and *own* them fully
📓 organization – how to stay organized
📓 planning – effective tools and methods
📓 intuition – knowing and understanding it’s role
📓 intention – how to set effective goals that get done
📓 and all the things holding you back
With special attention on staying grounded and moving forward during times of chaos and uncertainty.
Each day for 30 days, you’ll receive an email ‘lesson’ with journaling prompts as well as guidance, tools, and other resources to help you along the path.
You’ll also get to connect with me and fellow journeyers in a private Facebook group.
And we are starting ASAP! Because I know you need this kind of support NOW.
Normally, I would be offering this for at least $197 and probably more like $297 BUT because I know people need this right now,
I’m offering this as a NAME YOUR PRICE deal.
In other words, PAY WHAT YOU WANT.
Now, there is a minimum of $10 because honestly, I don’t want to give it away for free. It’s simply too valuable for that. Your sanity and peace of mind are too valuable for that.
This is a unique time in history that is calling us to be greater. A time that is calling us to a greater purpose. A purpose that is far greater than ourselves.
This is about heeding the call to create a new world amidst the chaos and uncertainty. It’s about being part of the solution, part of the way forward.
