Air Force Academy

I am honored to have taught RESILIENCY skills at the Air Force Academy! Four (4) in-person workshops of my “How to Climb Back Up the Adverse Spiral…and Stay Up!” The timing was perfect because it was right before they went into lock-down and virtual only learning.
* It takes courage to look within and the cadets did it with enthusiasm and genuinely deep discussions on self-awareness, self-ownership and self-commitment.

* My workshop on Purple Threads (limiting Personal Beliefs become Physiologically Tied to what we think, say and do.) helps realize and remove emotional obstacles and self-limitations so that each individual can thrive and teams (or families) can have closer unity.

Very grateful to Col. Kim Campbell, the Director of the Center for Character and Leadership Development at the Air Force Academy who posted….Special thanks to Abigail G. Manning for joining us at the Air Force Academy to talk to our cadets about resiliency. Abigail tells a powerful personal story that resonates with her audience, especially during this difficult and challenging time. Thank you for spending your time with us, for being vulnerable and sharing your struggles, and for giving us skills and techniques for How to Climb Back Up the Adverse Spiral…and Stay Up!

I’m now offering non-military workshops and private classes. If interested, in removing limiting self-beliefs and obstacles to achieving your highest-self, please contact me to learn more!

Might be the best investment you make in 2021…

the most resilient, strong, brave and happiest version of you!

You deserve nothing less.

Keep moving relentlessly forward.

The best is yet to be!

What if COVID-19 is a test of…

What if COVID-19 is a test of your…

values,

resolve,

and most of all….your character.

We all have had a rollercoaster of emotions and feelings during this world-wide experience. It’s okay if at times it has stressed you out with challenges. And, at times you’ve stumbled.

Here’s the key…give yourself grace & space and then stand back up.

Live in alignment with your values.

Double down on your resolve.

Let your character shine through to inspire others.

I believe in you and your ability.

I want you to believe in me and my ability.

Unity. Optimism.

Together, we got this!

What If Monster

When my kids were young, we talked about the WHAT IF Monster. This monster is invisible…like most monsters are…and yet at times, it’s all we can see and hear. 

This monster tells you all the ways you will absolutely fail and aren’t good enough. It encourages you to quit before you even try. To be defeated when the first handful of attempts fall flat.It is fluent in the language of shame, blame and judgment. 

It is a powerful mountain avalanche that immediately smothers you with fear, doubt and unworthiness. 

It artfully distorts the vision of yourselves and the world. Not wanting to feel or appear weak, we self-isolate. We become blind and deaf to our talents, optimism and self-reliance. Not having support of others (heightened with physical distancing during COVID-19), it is easy to slide down the Adverse Spiral. 

So what to do?! Take 2 brave steps forward! 

1st = Learn to silence the WHAT IF Monster by recognizing the physical and emotional warning signs. 

2nd = Learn to stop the monster by building a powerful internal WHY NOT Mentor!

Like great leaders, mentors see us for who we are, help build our strengths, face our fears, deepen our confidence and encourage us to overcome challenges. 

An internal mentor helps us to become our own hero. And thanks to Captain America and Wonder Woman, we know heroes always win over monsters!

Please help me to help others by sharing content and/or contacting me for information on virtual workshops and coaching to foster energetic teams and empowered individuals.
