Chasing Your Dream Is HARD

Listen, real talk.
Chasing your dream is HARD. This life is not for everyone.
 
There are days that will suck harder than anything could ever suck. It is at times the most lonely, heartbreaking life.
 
When you’ve found the one thing you are good at; the thing you LOVE, that lights you up – you’ve risked everything to make it happen- it sets you up for many disappointments along the way. It’s those setbacks and heart breaks that make most people say; fuck this. It’s not worth it! This is not a “stable” life. There are no guarantees, no stability. 
 
But those of us who chase our passion and are committed to living our dreams, realize that those shitty days are the price we pay, for the days that BLOW YOUR FUCKING MIND! The days when you’re living inside a moment that at one point, was simply a thought. The HIGH of that, is worth every low.
 
I won’t quit because quitting my dream, or giving up on my calling, would be like quitting ME. It would be giving up on life, on living. And that is never going to happen.

How to Hire a Life Coach

How to hire a great life coach

Lets start with the obvious question.

How to hire a life coachWhat is a life coach, really?

A life coach is a person who’s an expert at helping their clients identify and reach specific goals. They may have various areas of specialty, but generally they help clients: make a plan, discover any blocks to success, provide motivation, support and accountability, and they track RESULTS. All of this helps the client reach their desired results much faster and with greater accuracy then if they did it alone. 

In April I was asked by Pinterest to come give a talk to their employees at their corporate headquarters in San Francisco for their annual KnitCon conference. The topic of my talk was Who Needs A Life Coach Anyway? Where I shared my experience coaching clients on how to manifest their dreams using Pinterest. 

It’s such a great question, because there are so many misconceptions of why someone looks for and hires a life coach.  read more »

Live Your Dream by Sarah Centrella

I hope this little trailer inspires you to live your dreams! If you’ve watched my journey over the years, then you know that this has not happened overnight. It’s come with a lot of work, overcoming many trials along the way, and a lot of faith. If you’re new to my journey, just know that it hasn’t always been easy (feel free to read posts from 2009-2012), but it is ALWAYS POSSIBLE. There really is no such thing as impossible!

My advise to you?

Get started.

Whatever your dream is, stops sitting around thinking you can’t do it. Just start. And every single day do something, anything, to get one inch closer to living it. Then when the opportunity comes, jump on it! Even though it will not look like a sure bet, will probably require sacrifice, and force you to move past fears, just do it! Believe that it came to you for a reason, and that the Universe will have your back, and it will! 

Stop making excuses about your life. Start changing it. 

 

If your ready to change your life and learn how to manifest your dreams, let me show you how. Learn more about my coaching and workshops and lets make your dreams a reality!

Are You Sitting on Your Golden Ticket?

What is your “golden ticket”? I bet you have one, and I’m also willing to bet that you know what it is… so then why are you SITTING ON IT!?

Our golden ticket is the one thing we are GREAT AT. The one thing we love. Maybe even the one thing we devote our time and energy to, but might not make any money from, yet. It’s the thing that we secretly (or openly) are crafting, hustling towards and dreaming of.

For me, its teaching people how to change their life and live their dream, through live events around the world, TV/Film, coaching and books. That is my THING. It’s my passion. It’s what I did for years before it paid me a penny. It’s what I’d still do for free if I could. It’s what I obsess over, dream about and hustle on every single day for the past seven years. It’s what I did nights and weekends while holding down a full-time job from 2010-2017. It’s given me the greatest highs of my life, and broken my heart more times then I can count. It’s what I am meant to do. It’s the only thing I’ve ever really been good at, and -this probably sounds cocky- but I’m fucking great at it. It fills me up in ways I never dreamed a job could. It’s not a job, it’s who I am. It is my Golden Ticket.

#HBRSocial A Dream Come True

On Saturday night (May 20, 2017) I lived a major dream, one I’ve had for the past four years. I held my first ever, live motivational event!

Four years ago I wrote out a business plan for my coaching company, which included hosting live events and retreats. Then two years ago, I built out the plan even further with a dream of including multiple speakers, and taking the show on the road. 

But it wasn’t until I went to that horrible Tony Robbin’s event (read my review) that I finally had the balls to make it happen. I saw such a need for something fresh and authentic, that it got me thinking. It was time to do something. I believe so strongly in the message of #HustleBelieveReceive because I’ve watched it change lives over and over. How could I just sit on my ass and do nothing? 

So, without knowing how the hell I could make this crazy dream a reality, I began. For anyone out there who has a dream but doesn’t believe they have the money, the expertise, or the know-how to make it happen this story is for you.  read more »

Elisha Alcantara’s Inspiring Personal Journey to Success

Elisha Alcantara's Inspiring Journey to SuccessElisha Alcantara and I met over coffee on a rare sunny Sunday afternoon in March. In a matter of minutes, we were sharing our stories and chatting excitedly as if we’d known each other for years. I knew immediately that she was my kinda chick. She hustled to make her dreams a reality, and it was clear we shared a similar mindset.

I asked Elisha if she’d share her story with you, in hopes that it might inspire you to live your dream, regardless of any obstacles you might face along the way.

“My work ethic is the reason I am here right now.” Elisha began when I asked her how she’d been able to achieve so much in such a short period of time. “I’ve always said that it doesn’t matter if I work at McDonald’s or ran my own company, I would give it everything I had. I’ve always worked very hard, making the most of any opportunity.

Self-Help Revolution Needed

It’s time for a self-help revolution. For real.

On Thursday I attended the #TonyRobbinsTour in Portland (read my review here) and was honestly appalled. Since speaking out about my experience, I’ve received nearly 200 comments/emails and messages from people who’ve had a similar experience. Not ONE hate message (which honestly shocked me!).  

So this is what I learned, and why I believe the Universe pushed me to endure twelve hours of that nonsense. 

1. Self-help needs a serious shake-up! We are hungry for something REAL and authentic, and it is definitely NOT at these money-making, scam events. At least not for many of us.

Tony Robbins Tour Scam

Tony Robbins Tour Scam

Tony Robbins Tour, why you should save your money and skip this marketing scam!

I’ve been pretty excited the past week or so, in anticipation of seeing the king of life coaching, LIVE and in person. I’ve watched him on Oprah, and known of him for longer then I’ve been in the self-help game. I haven’t read his books, but watched enough of him on TV that I felt fairly sure of what to expect at todays National Achievers Congress, aka #TonyRobbinsTour.

Boy was I wrong. 

The company that puts on this event, Success Resources America claims to have done this for 18 years. How is that possible? After the shitshow I lived through today, I find it hard to believe that this company is still in business let alone putting on events that people PAY to attend.  read more »
