Self doubt…does it sabotage you?

 

Connect with Julianna

Julianna Lyddon here and I want to talk about something that can be so irritating for so many of us. That is self-doubt. I call it The Saboteur. And boy does it pop its ugly head up just when we don’t want it to. I mean think about it like this. The last time that maybe you had an idea that you wanted to do something, maybe it was personally or in business, or whatever it was. Say it was a little bit out there. Just as you started thinking wow you know I really have something here. I could really do this, this could really be productive for me. Or I think that people would really understand this. Just as you finish that thought, BAMMM! comes that negative self-talk, comes that saboteur that creeps in as if to tell you, are you crazy?

A few creative tips for STANDING IN YOUR PERSONAL POWER!

 

Connect with Julianna

 

Its Julianna Lyddon here and today I want to talk about personal power. One of the things I see a lot in my practice is that people have trouble standing in their power, in their light. Often we stand beside it or even behind it. And it can be hard sometimes because there is no perfection in the human condition. We all have good days and bad days.   But sometimes we need a few extra tips to help us through some of the obstacles we face in our life.

So with relationship to personal power, one of the things that I think we need to identify first is what makes us special. What makes you unique. How do you stand apart from everybody else in the world. So whether this is related to opening your own business or you just want to be happier in your life.

How are your life skills?

Connect with Julianna
 
Are you the most productive “you” you can be in your career? What separates the top-notch, effective executives and employees from the good ones? It’s not necessarily expertise in their line of work, but rather the fundamental life skills they possess. Personal power, creativity, relationship building skills, mindfulness, motivation, and more aren’t taught in schools or even necessarily by parents while growing up.
 
The Individual Corporate Coaching program focuses on these aspects of life to improve your job productivity and personal growth.
 
The program is uniquely designed as a partnership piece. Accountability is a critical necessity for executives and employees in the business world. To reinforce accountability in this coaching program, you will be asked to bring your most recent job performance review to the first coaching session. By identifying and highlighting areas where improvement is needed, we develop a synergistic method of holding you accountable for your job performance while continuing to work on your individual growth. This is the framework for developing your own unique, personalized coaching success plan.
 
COACHING SESSIONS
The Individual Corporate Coaching program consists of four one-hour sessions scheduled one week apart. For non-local clients, the sessions are conducted via Skype. Your coaching will be tailored to your individual needs and goals, but will include these pathways:
 
• Emotional Intelligence
• Personal Power and Passion
• Relationship Building Skills
• Mindfulness Training
• Creativity and Motivation

Victim or Creator?

 

Connect with Julianna

Hi it’s Julianna Lyddon here and I have a couple of concepts that I want to throw your way. These concepts have been helpful for not only my clients when I bring them up, but for my students. I teach incoming freshman. Also its great to use with your employees. Its wonderful to use with your children and again these are fairly easy or simplistic as I say, but they are concepts that we don’t always think about.

So when I throw the word victim out there, what comes to mind? What do you think about? Because the individual that acts as the victim, is that person that likes to blame everybody else. That doesn’t want to take responsibility. That doesn’t like to be held accountable. It was her fault. It was his fault. The teacher just doesn’t like me. My boss doesn’t understand me. Right? There’s always an excuse. We know these individuals. Maybe there’s been a time in your life where you have been that individual. Right? Okay so when I throw this other word out there, the word creator, what comes to mind when you think about that? Well when we are the creator, we are the individual that sees opportunity everywhere.

Are you thinking about moving in together or getting married?

 

Connect with Julianna

 

Hi its Julianna Lyddon here and so today I want to talk about something that came up my classroom. I teach college kids, incoming freshmen in Arizona and today we were talking a little bit about habits and how we can stop behaviors before they become habitual and having that real awareness of what a habit is and how long it takes a habit to be actually formed and really getting in there and making that unnecessary shift.

Some of the kids brought up….. we have such great discussions …and some of them brought up this concept of relationships and marriages and how complicated that can be when two people have very specific habits. And how they come together in a relationship and how it can be extra difficult at eradicating or even really making the shift that’s very necessary so then the conversation kinda parlayed into someone asking if I believe in premarital counseling and so we had a discussion about that and I absolutely think that if individuals would go to see someone before they get married or even moved in together more marriages would be salvaged… would be saved.

Connecting with your teenager

I want to talk to you parents, guardians, individuals that are raising children that are adolescents. Maybe they are in their pre teen years approaching adolescence.  Maybe you have a child that is acting out a bit and giving you a hard time. This is the issue and the topic I want to cover today in this video.  One thing I found when I was studying for my masters program for marriage and family and child therapy and what I have found in the real world and in my coaching practice, because periodically I coach parents on parenting and when they hit these road blocks and need just a little extra special attention, that we all need to practice our listening skills.  

There really is an art to listening. Click To Tweet

And I know as well because I am the mother of three grown children myself, and parenting can be very very hard.  Especially when we hit the adolescence with our kids.  Its as if they are poof and gone. One day you have this incredible child that communicates with you openly maybe gives you hugs in public, wants to talk to you, wants you to be included in their activities. And the next day they’re gone.  Its like where did that child go that we knew for so many years.  And it can be so frustrating and it can be really scary.  So the one thing that we need to practice as parents is being a better listener, me included at times.  I tell you what its not necessarily easy and it takes some practice and it takes patience.

Promote health through meditation

 

Connect with Julianna

 

I want to talk a little bit about meditation. This can actually be a scary word, a bad word, a word that makes people go ahhhh, I don’t to talk about that, that’s kind of weird, its kind of out there!

So I want to bring this subject down to earth. I want to desensitize it. I want to make it very normal. Not scary, or not weird. Just because we learn to meditate does not mean that we’re strange, it does not mean that we are going to start meditating all over the place and ohming and making sounds and that kind of thing. We need to meditate. Everybody needs to try it. Because the key here is that we can calm our brain. We are basically a nation of people with out of control brains. Our thoughts go a mile a minute, we have anxiety, we have depression, we have insomnia. We have a pill for everything.   We have a pill to wake up, we have a pill to go to sleep to, we have a pill to feel better and to make everything ok… we have a pill for everything.

Now I am not anti medication. I am just merely saying that at some point me have to stop. We have to stop and look at what is going on in our heads.

We have to start calming the mind so that we have more clarity in our lives Click To Tweet

and so that we can start taking responsibility for our behavior and responsibility for everything we are experiencing in our daily lives.

Are You Or Someone You Know Depressed?

Are you or someone you know depressed?

I want to give you some symptoms for depression to look for, whether its for yourself or a family member or someone you love. Because often when we are in depression ourselves, it can be so hard for us to recognize it. Because we feel as if we are in this fog and we cant move through it. But before I go through some of those symptoms, its important that we all recognize that all of us can slip into some of these depressive symptoms.

There are so many things in our lives that we run into, obstacles that we hit, circumstances that we are trying to move through that can be so difficult. Some of us have lost a loved one, and we’re grieving. Others of us may be have been through a traumatic breakup. Maybe you have lost your job or you have lost your home. All of these are examples of things that can put us right into kind of a form of depression. Now I am not talking about clinical depression here. I want to make that very clear. But even when we are experiencing some of these depressive symptoms we can go to our doctor…talk…

#1 FEAR we all have in common?

 

#1 FEAR we all have in common?

 

#1 FEAR we all have in common?

Do you know what it is?

This is Julianna Lyddon and here is my question for you today.  Do you know what the number one fear is that most of us have in common?  Take a second… if you guessed being alone than you nailed it.  Studies show that most of us are scared of being alone at one time or another in our lives.  Now its natural for us to be concerned about this as we get older especially if we are going to lose our partner or we are in ill health.  But I want to talk about this concept of really being ok with being alone. No matter how old you are.  Because here’s the thing,

we spend our lives building relationships outside of ourselves Click To Tweet

We spend time working at the family relationships.  We spend time working at the relationships at our work or in our community or with our neighbors or in-laws and on and on.  But often we don’t spend time getting to know ourselves.  Many of us can define who we are by the relationships that we are in.  You know that individual who when their loved one goes out of town and they are alone, they have to go to stay at someone else’s house. Or we know that individual that can’t go anywhere without being with other people or they always have to be busy.  Because being alone is very scary, is very unsettling.

Sleeping in separate beds….is it good for your relationship?

 

As couples, should we sleep in separate bedrooms?  

Okay here’s the thing, almost 26% of us say that they do sleep in separate bedrooms.  And there are a myriad of reasons for this.  Some of us have restless leg syndrome, some of our partners snore, some have sleep apnea and have that apparatus to help them sleep.  Some have a hard time getting to sleep and are getting up and down a lot.  Some have different work schedules.  The 26%, those that said that they do sleep in separate bedrooms don’t like to talk about it, they are embarrassed about it and feel judged. And people feel that if you are sleeping in separate bedrooms, their marriage must really be on the rocks.  Well I am here to tell you that those I have spoken with, who have made the decision to sleep in separate bedrooms are so much happier.  Here’s the key, the quality of life issue is what we are dealing with here.  If you cannot get a restful night of sleep and its happening to you more than a couple of times a week, its going to affect you on many facets of your life.
