Emotional Inventory

 

It's a very simple exercise. Yet I guarantee most of you won't be able to do it.

Up for the challenge?

Track your emotions for 7 days.

Yes, the exercise is that simple. So why don't I think most of you can do it?

Because it's going to feel uncomfortable, increase your awareness, and challenge the way your see yourself.

And doing those things are hard!

But there's even more to be gained from doing this exercise...

If I had done this exercise a year ago, I would have been waaaay more challenged. That's because a year ago I equated my value to things that could be measured; such as how much money I was making, how busy I was, and what I was achieving. 

And all of these things are associated with DOING.

So, when I felt I wasn't "measuring up" my emotions would include: frustration, anger, sadness, disappointment, and not feeling good about myself in general.

This all changed when I got pregnant.

My swelling belly took away my body's energy to DO, DO, DO.

I had a choice. I could feel crappy about not accomplishing as much as I used to. Or I could value just BEING.

When we allow ourselves to just be, without judgement and with self-compassion, we make it ok for ourselves to do a little less.

So when I did my emotional inventory, good stuff came up for me because I have made it ok to just BE, and not judge myself based on my achievements.

So...

Track your emotions for 7 days.

See what comes up for you.

If it's a lot of negativity, explore why? and where it's coming from? If it's positive, congrats on having BEING balance!

Happy emoting :)

 

 

 

 

Purpose vs. Passion

 

Ever fall victim to any of these headlines?

Find your passion!

Live your passion!

Passion is the secret ingredient to all happiness!

If you have, you're not alone. Hundreds of self-help books and gurus use the promise of passion to answer their clients' burning questions of how to find true happiness and fulfillment in their lives. 

Do I believe in passion and its influence on happiness?

Yes, but...

Passion isn't just something you find. It's falsely packaged as a thing you can pick up on aisle 7. This is why people are made to feel so foolish for not having a passion. Passion is created.

How?

Purpose is the underpinning of passion. Research and experience has shown us that the happiest people are those that feel they are fulfilling their purpose in life. And they've found you can do this in several ways!

Watch this week's video to learn how to align with your PURPOSE in order to create PASSION in your life!

 

That's garbage!

 

You've read the books, and you've attended the seminars.

You know what it takes to stay relevant in the business world today. And that's to create content.

Yet, when it comes time to set down and write that tweet, or outline that newsletter, you freeze. Your mind goes blank, feel you have nothing important to say, and so you do nothing.

There are plenty of ways we justify this in our minds:

"I'm too busy for social media."
"The right people already know about our company and what we do."
"I don't have anything worth saying."

None of these are true. And frankly, none of these really matter.

Several writers and great content-pushers of our day have been interviewed saying, "Luckily, inspiration strikes me every morning at 9am." .... Which is exactly the time they sit down to create everyday!

That is NOT a coincidence. They make a HABIT out of it. They commit to it, and they follow through. 

Seth Godin - a renown marketing guru and author - has a famous blog. And how often do you think he writes for that blog? 

Seth writes 5 articles EACH DAY! And only publishes 1 of them. Seth is willing to create garbage.

That's right, a best-selling author and master creator creates garbage. He simply is not afraid of it. And neither should you.

We all have fears that pop up when we consider creating something and sharing it with the world. But if those fears are STOPPING you from creating altogether, then I'm giving you permission to create garbage!

Watch this week's video for more fun on creating garbage along the way:

 
 

Your greatest challenge yet

 

You do so much. 

You manage your career, take care of your family, and try to better yourself. Yet there are times when all of that doesn't feel like enough!

It's that gnawing feeling of "I know I can do better. If I just....." fill in the blank with the problem of your choice! 

In most aspects of your life, this relentless pursuit of excellence is a good thing. Society rewards you for it.

But what happens when it doesn't serve you? When it burns you out? When you wish you could just stop sometimes?

I want to offer you the greatest challenge yet! ...to just be. Can you do it?

Watch this week's video to see if your up for the challenge!


 

Share Your Scary

 

How often do you put on a pretty front? And how often do you let people know your truth?

It is SCARY to let people in on the less refined version of ourselves. But you know what? People love it! It makes you more human and relatable.

Watch this week's video to find the courage and opportunities to share your scary!

[HINT] I think you'll find that what you want to share is actually not that scary to people :)


 

What will you create in 2016?

Still struggling to get over that holiday hangover? You know, the one from too much sugar, lounging around, and being off your routine?

Get off to a better start for 2016 by taking action now!

Ready to set your vision for 2016? Check out my past video for a new take on goal setting before you get started. 

 
 

 

Looking for different results than you've previously had? Then you need to do something different! Start by looking at the way you set goals here:

Do your goals or resolutions looks something like this?

- Make more money

- Save more money

- Lose weight

Then it's time to start thinking differently! Want to set a vision for 2016 that will actually make you HAPPY and FULFILLED? Watch the TED Talk below that describes a Harvard study on what really makes people happy in the long run. 

{HINT: It's not fame or fortune! It's good relationships}

 


Reflect on it!

This week, I don't want to hear from you! This week is about reflection and creation. It requires a different kind of head space to get really honest with yourself about your past year, and what you truly want to create for 2016.

Give yourself that space and time to explore what's there for you. Share when you're really ready to. 

What else?

Work with me  I'm only taking 10 one-on-one clients for 2016. This allows me to give even more to my clients for their greater results. I want to help you create real transformation. Find out if working with me is right for YOU! Email at brittany@brittanydrozd.com.

You can create your legacy and live a life you love!

Happy Holidays from me to you

This is a short note to say how grateful I am to have you as part of my community! 

I love hearing from all of you throughout the year, with your stories of success and trials. You bring so much to this community and I love that you let me be a part of your life!

Have a wonderful holiday season and I look forward to serving you even more in 2016!


Give them what they really want

Tis the season for giving, right?! But who really wants more crap lying around?

 

Seriously?!

 

What if you could give a gift that had tremendous impact, was incredibly valuable, and you had an endless supply of it?

 

Of course you would give that gift! That's the kind of gift everyone wants anyway! When you give your true gifts - the thing you're brilliant at- it changes everything.

How?

Watch this week's video to learn how to give your true gifts. Because when you do...

- you feel amazing!

- you create better connections

- and you live in abundance!

What's your inner genius?

You know when you're sitting at a coffee shop, and all of a sudden you think of a brilliant way to store napkins that no one has ever thought of before? 

It's like you've just invented a process that will make you rich and famous. So, for a a second, you bask in the idea of becoming the celebrity Napkin Guy. 

And then, after a minute or so, you go right back to sipping your coffee and on with your day. 

That napkin thing- that's your stroke of genius!

That's you allowing your brain to flow in creativity!

That's you accessing your inner genius!

You don't need to act on each stroke of genius you have. You just need to access your inner genius as much as possible!

How do you do that?

Watch this week's video to learn how I access my inner genius, and what may work for you too! Watch your inner genius take off and create what you didn't think was possible!

What's your money story?

We've all got one. You've got one. I've got one.

A what???

A money story.

You're probably not even conscious of it. But it's behind everything!

- Your self worth

- Your perceived value

- What you think your salary should be

- How much wealth you should acquire

- How much money you should invest in yourself. 

So whenever you feel you're "not where you want to be" when it comes to any of the above money issues, you need to examine your money story.

Watch this week's video to learn how your money story is stopping you from creating the legacy and impact you really want to have on the world!

A better Thanksgiving starts here

It's almost time for my favorite holiday... Thanksgiving!

And whether you celebrate this day or not, it's always a good day to be grateful and eat delicious food!

My good friend hosts an annual party where we make crafts and celebrate the season. Although I wouldn't call myself particularly "crafty", I'm very proud of this Grateful Garland I made (see pic below!) 

Each leaf has something written on it that I'm grateful for. Some of my favorites include: my family, my clients, and puppies. Yes puppies, really. I just love those things!

The words "gratitude" and "grateful" can seem over played this time of year. But I will still challenge you to come up with your own list. We all have things in our lives to be grateful for.

Write them down.

Read them often.

See what changes for you.

Want even more support to survive your holiday? You got it! 

Last year I published a Holiday Survival Series that will help you have the best holiday seaon yet! 

Check out the first video in the series here. Find the rest on my YouTube Channel.

 
 

Why you don't get anything done

Look at your to-do list right now! This moment!

What's on it? What has been checked off as completed? And what hasn't?

What has lingered on your list SO LONG that it will deserve a ceremony once completed?

That's the one I'm talking about! 

It's that task you wish you could pay someone to do for you. The one you would NEVER miss doing again. The one that causes your stress just seeing on your to-do list. 

That's your resistance! 

We all have it. And you can find it cropping up everywhere you go - the gym, a work meeting, important conversations with your spouse. 

Your current tactics:

AVOID at all costs! Delay, delay, delay! Or hop on Facebook for 15 minutes.

Want a real solution? One that will get you to accomplish this task and no longer feel weighed down?

Watch this week's video to learn to Recognize Resistance, no Rationalize it, to once and for all Resolve your Resistance!

So I BEG you... Please unsubscribe if you feel these emails aren't giving you any value or positively impacting your life! Because that's my goal! Not open rates.

I absolutely love my tribe on here, but I only want you here if it feels good for you!

Teaching my friend to kitesurf

Kitesurfing is absolutley one of my favorite things to do. It's like walking on water and having a wind-powered jet engine all at the same time!

But it can take years to learn. One of my friends wanted to try, so I thought I'd show him the first step - learning to fly the kite. 

As I was teaching him, I realized how similar it was to coaching. Here's why:

- There's no miracle. If you want to see a "miracle", watch a televangelist.

- Progress, not perection. Coaching and kiting are about learning small, baby steps that will lead to a great transformation.

- Action is the only way to Satisfaction! The only way to change, transform, and learn to kite is to take action. You may fail at points along the way. But you will reach a satisfying end if you persist.

You sound like Donald Trump!

If you've watched the news lately or listened to any radio programs, you've likely heard about what this guy is up to! Or what he's been saying!

Like him or not, Donald Trump has a lot to say! Recently, some of my favorites are..

"The concept of global warming was created by and for the Chinese."

"I will build a great, great wall on our southern border, and I will make Mexico pay for that wall.."

And my personal favorite:

"All the women on The Apprentice flirted with me - consciously or unconsciously. That's to be expected." 

 

Why you sound the same

Donald Trump just spouts off without any clear or consistent message.

Donald complains.

Donald yells his words because his message is weak.

 

YOUR message is weak when you've stopped taking care of yourself, stopped striving for your dreams, and stopped taking control in your life.

Sounding like The Donald is a result of not taking action in your life...

But I can help you with that!!

On September 23rd at 1pm, join me for a LIVE call! I'll be getting into the nitty-gritty of why you're stuck, and how to STOP talking like Donald Trump!

the most important video I've ever made

I'm going off the edge...

Do you consider yourself a rambunctious cowboy? Or a mischievous explorer?

Are you someone who would bet it all on Red? Or lives the mantra YOLO?

No? Me neither. 

Ok, so your life isn't as exciting as some of your younger friends. That's ok. You can still live on the edge. Your edge!

What do I mean?

I define living on the edge as that fine line between fear and excitement. When you feel you're palms get sweaty, but your mind is laser focused. 

Why should you live there? 

Finding this edge, getting there and staying there are the very things that create purpose, happiness, and connection in your life.

Watch this week's video to find your edge, know how to get there, and stay there for good!
