Your Future is Hurting You Now

In Confidence and Courage, Podcast by SonjaLeave a Comment

Today, I want to talk to you about how your future is destroying your ability to make decisions in the present. … Just saying those words fucks me up a little bit, so I just want to take a moment to say it again so we are both clear on the topic today. Your future is destroying your ability to make decisions today. Once upon a time, there was a girl. That girl was me. I had a job that wasn’t terrible, but over time it drove me into the ground. I didn’t feel like myself there. I didn’t feel …

Why Goals Fail

In Podcast, Your Values by SonjaLeave a Comment

Every new moon, I take a little time to set intentions for the month. I like to base it on the star sign that the Moon is in, mostly because it’s fun – I also feel there is a synchronicity between astrology signs and the time of the year. A few days ago I was giving an online group session around setting intentions, and an excellent question came up, Why intentions and not goals. I want to offer a challenge. In this world where goals are idealized. Don’t set any. Don’t set any this month, don’t set any for the …

Eliminating Perfectionism

In Podcast by SonjaLeave a Comment

I love listening to the intro music as a way to warm up for these podcasts. So I’m sitting here with my headphones on, snapping along, thinking wow, my snaps sound great! And then I realize … I can’t hear my snaps at all, that’s the music. Womp woomp! Today I want to talk to you about a topic that’s near and dear to my heart: perfectionism.   It wasn’t until very recently that the idea was even floated that maybe “perfect” as a goal was not helpful, and more recently had the realization that shook my understanding of perfectionism to …

The Universe Has a Message for You

In Intuition by SonjaLeave a Comment

We’re talking signs here. (That’s the “oh, the Universe is talking to me” kind, not the “did I just miss my exit?” kind.) You may tend to think about signs in one of two ways – that if you ever get to see one, it’ll show up as a lightning strike, or, that there’s no such thing. As with so many things, it’s often somewhere in between.  Many signs start as tiny little nudges. Can they get bigger? Yeah absolutely. But if you had a a choice, wouldn’t you prefer to recognize the little signs – the right kind of flower …

A Different World

In Confidence and Courage by SonjaLeave a Comment

I recently attended the World Domination Summit in Portland, Oregon. (Weird name, right? And no, it’s not like that.)  Often defying description, WDS was recently described by a friend of mine, Jeff Harry, when he said: “The best way to describe WDS is that it is a play conference where people are giving each other permission to live a much bigger, more powerful, adventurous life. It challenges the notion of the standard 9 to 5, as well as believing that life is a mundane experience that you just need to tolerate.” Every year, the content is captivating. In addition to mainstage …

It’s Not Worth Your Life

In Uncategorized by Sonja1 Comment

My friend’s tears weren’t too unusual on this topic. “It’s awful,” she said, as I listened to her heart sink to the floor. “My manager is always hounding me about deadlines I’m missing because I have too much work to do. My coworker is a jerk, but I have no one to tell when we don’t have HR, besides my manager says it’s my fault. It’s so frustrating, I hate it there.” After a bit, I said, “Wow, that’s all so hard. Are you going to look for a new job?” She blinked at me. “Oh, no I couldn’t. I’ve …
