Can we talk about Weeks From Hell?

How will you respond, no matter what?

For ongoing continuing ed, my coaching school offers monthly training calls as well as a yearly in-person mastermind.
(If I haven’t already told you 100 times, that’s The Life Coach School, run by Brooke and Chris Castillo.)

A few months back, Brooke held a call where she challenged us to come up with our Go-To Thoughts. (That’s what I call them, can’t remember her words.)

No matter what happens, I can apply this thought.

Some answers included…
“Let’s Play!”
“Life is a great adventure, and this is just the beginning.”
“I am an example of what is possible.”

I decided on: I am a badass and I got this.

Brooke then presented us with some “no matter what” scenarios.

You win a big contract.
I am a badass and I got this.
You get fired.
I am a badass and I got this.
You lose 20 pounds.
I am a badass and I got this.
You are diagnosed with cancer.
I am a badass and I got this.

And this week was a “no matter what” kind of week.
Some might call it a week from hell. But really, it was just a whole lotta life at one time.

  • A “show me a sign” conversation with God about a big financial decision.
  • The amazing Listen to Your Mother Show. We knocked it out of the park.
  • A terrible accident at our home that required 911 responders taking care of a family friend. (All is OK now.)
  • A deeply emotional Mothers Day visit with my Grandma.
  • An answer from God on said big financial decision.
  • A school celebration for my 5th grader.
  • A colossal miscommunication that led to an incredibly stressful situation and a missed opportunity.
  • My son’s 11th birthday.
  • The 5th anniversary of my dad’s death.
  • Receiving recognition for winning a recent speaking event at my favorite monthly networking meeting.
  • An ultrasound to monitor some health concerns.
  • Watching our baby girl walk across the stage to get her high school diploma.
  • My grandma’s congestive heart failure sent her to the hospital.
  • The last day of 5th and 2nd grade for my boys.
  • A phenomenal first-time visit with a new energy doctor.
  • A couple of quiet, deeply emotional hospital visits with my grandma.
  • A weekend in Hannibal celebrating our daughter’s graduation and my mother in law’s birthday.

This upcoming week is only moderately less busy, as Trey and I must now act on the big financial decision, I fly to Sacramento for that yearly Life Coach School mastermind, and, as my grandmother’s power of attorney, possible major medical decisions to be made.

It truly is enough to bring me to my knees.
I found myself with my hand in the literal Oreo cookie jar at my mother in law’s house – and am thankful for a gracious husband who recognized what I was doing and reminded me what I had momentarily forgotten…

I am a badass and I got this.

The difference between “the week from hell” and “a week of Life” is your ability to apply your go-to thought, no matter what.

Find yours.
Write it.
Practice it.
Apply it, no matter what.

It’s life changing.

I am officially launching my long-talked-about podcast in June!
And I have an outside deadline, which requires me to document this process (!), holding me accountable, so no back-burnering it here.
I am a badass and I got this.

The podcast will preclude the launch of my new coaching program. I have a couple beta clients in the program right now – and have two spots available if anyone else would like to be a part of the program at a pre-launch price!
I am a badass and I got this.

Let’s talk! Click here.

Have THE BEST day. No matter what.
I appreciate each of you being here with me!

Until next week!
