Social Ecstasy Emotional Diagram

The Secret Skills to Success are

  • Social
  • Emotional
  • Ecstasy

Some of us wake up drained

Some of us wake up re-charged. 

The hormones in the body that affect which way the body shows up are: 

Happy Brain Chemicals

Dopamine – Functions include: Pleasure, Fine Motor Skills and Preservation of our body. 

Oxytocin – Known as the maternal hormone, but also arises when we have physical contact with another human. 

Serotonin – A mood regulator related to happiness. Lowered levels are noted in people with depression. 

Endorphins – Reduces pain, boosts pleasure and overall gives us a feeling of wellbeing. 

Cortisol – This chemical controls your fight or flight and can leave you feeling fearful and drained if not managed. It also manages blood sugar, metabolism & inflammation. 

We need to learn how to trigger these different hormones because they charge up our batteries to enhance our creativity and critical thinking. 

Being able to do this sets us up to develop skills.

Find Inspiration & Make Every Thought Count

Put yourself in positive surroundings – a walk, pleasant places in nature, calm spaces, images that lift you up. We have identified 4 things that may help to inspire you in your day, and in your life. 

Four Things to Inspire You

  • Adventure
  • History
  • Be Inspired
  • Journal

1. Adventure

Break your pattern of routine and do something that is adventurous to you. A walk, a bike ride… or something even more intense. What is something you can do physically to activate your brain, your body, and your breath? Those things energize you and open you to new ideas and thoughts.   

Get outside your norm and go somewhere completely different from your typical routine. They are good for you even if you have to schedule your adventure out for a future time in your life. Make those bucket lists. Those are some of the things that will enrich your life. 

Get outside your norm and go somewhere completely different from your typical routine.

2. Learn About history

Be inspired by visiting places where people from history thrived. These are archives of great accomplishments. 

Even though they are from the past they can still inspire you to look forward. These people just lived their lives, they didn’t know that they were shaping history. 

Visit places that people from history are remembered.

Imagine You Healthy…

Be Intentional

Small steps over time – and be intentional about those steps. 

Be intentional that you want “change” and what that ideally looks like to you

For example, what are the intentions you want? 

  • To feel better?
  • To have more energy?
  • To do more of the things you love to do?

Maybe even to have a better outlook on life?

Be True to YOURSELF

We live in a world where we worry about what others think, about being judged by others. Being “liked” by others…

Are you ready? Being intentional with your desire to make small changes and commit to long term health.
Are you ready to make a change in your life?

Sometimes this clouds our judgment. You will find that showing up as yourself (really digging in and deciding what better health looks like for you) is when being better to yourself and making healthier choices truly works.

If you can find a way to put the fear of what others are going to think aside when it comes to being more active, eating better, taking a certain supplement or avoiding a certain medication, you will be significantly more likely to succeed.

Desire to Change 

Desire Change - Sometimes the hardest part is recognizing the need to make a change

Change by moving away from something – you want less of and – move toward something you want more of.

I am passionate about helping you on a path away from things that are holding you back in life to leading you to open up your life to a place of abundance. I am beyond excited – to help you with that…

The desire to change is going to be that thing that helps you push through on those days when you just don’t feel like doing it. Days when things feel hard or you don’t feel motivated.
