Are You Buying The Lie?

don't buy the lie

 

Coach E here:

 
We all have a negative inner voice at times. This voice is steeped in the message that no matter how much you accomplish or how hard you try you are never enough.
 
Like a bucket with a hole your negative voice creates a sense of dis-ease that prevents you from fully experiencing joy and fulfillment in the present moment. 
 
The irony is this voice is a lie. The truth is you are more then enough in this moment without condition. The truth is you are loving, lovable and loved right now as you are. The truth is you are enough but unfinished. 
 
Take away: No matter how “successful”  or accomplished you become chances are you still have the negative chatter at times. The question is are you going to buy the lie?

Good Time

don't forget to have a good time

 

Coach E here:

 
I spent many years competing in endurance events and I used to take my time very seriously. My time was everything. My watch determined whether my race was a success or failure. This mental paradigm created a mountain of stress, anxiety and ultimately robbed me of the joy of training and racing. 
 
The game forever changed before one big event when my mother knowingly put her hands on my shoulders and said, “Erik whatever happens today, don’t forget to have a good time.” 
 
It finally really hit me. This was not about my time but about enjoying my time. On a deeper level it was about feeling enough irrespective of outcome and allowing myself to fully experience joy in the journey. 
 
Take away: When it comes to racing or life, don’t allow a number to rob you of your joy. And whatever you do, don’t forget to have a good time!

Out of Your Mind

out of my mind

 

 

Coach E here:

The fastest way out of a rut is not through analysis but through action. 

My invitation today is to come to your senses. Tune into your body. Allow your feelings to guide you. Chances are if it feels right it is right.  Notice how good it feels to act in harmony with your highest values. 
 
Take away: Think less, act more.

Inside Job

 

move your mind

 

Coach E here:

Lasting transformation is an inside job. Asking the internal question, “How can I __ and enjoy the process?” awakens your inner genius and connects you to your power to take inspired action. 

 

Take away: Move your mind and your body will follow.

Things Are The Way We Are

Coach Erik here:
 
Bruce lee once said, “To know yourself is to study yourself through your interactions with others.” 
 
My invitation today is to notice how you are interacting with others today. Are you coming from a place of patience? Compassion? Judgement? Love? Fear? Is this how you are feeling/treating yourself today? 
 
Take away: Things are not as they are. Things are the way you are. I invite you to study the way you are today through your interactions with others. What needs to shift for you to feel more loving/compassionate towards yourself and others today?

Got Mojo?

got mojo?

 Coach E here:

 
I offer mojo is that feeling of fire, passion and joy that happens when your actions are aligned with your core values.
 
The fastest way to get your mojo back when you’re in a rut is to reconnect with the things you love doing the most.
 
Take away: What do you value the most in your life? What lights you up? Do more of that.

Stuffed

repressed_emotions

 

Coach E  here:

One of the keys to lifelong fitness and wellness is honing our ability to manage our emotional states in a positive and empowering way.
 
Early in my life this was a great challenge. Instead of honoring, witnessing and releasing negative emotions that came up, I often tried to stuff them with food and alcohol. 
 
This led to a destructive pattern of perceived control that began to rob me of the happiness, health and joy I was keen on experiencing. 
 
The transformation began when I decided to lean in and honer/name my emotions (anger, fear, sadness, uncertainty, loneliness etc.) instead of denying / stuffing them with behaviors that helped me not to feel. 
 
By giving my feelings a voice I was able to witness them and then let them go. In addition the awareness of what was really going on gave me new insight as to how to move through the feelings with actions that were positively serving me as opposed to stealing from me. 
 
Take away: State management is a key to lifelong fitness and wellness. Stuffing your negative emotions robs you of the health, happiness and joy you really want. 
 
I invite you to honer your feelings. Name them, witness them with love and compassion and then let them go. Use the question, “How can I move through this uncomfortable feeling in a way that empowers me and helps me stay in line with the person I want to be?” Notice what comes up without judgement.

The Secret to Living is…

GivingTree

 

Coach E here:

 

All humans have a fundamental need to feel significant. We often satisfy that need through external channels such as, work, accomplishments, possessions etc. The challenge is success without fulfillment is the ultimate failure. The game changes when we seek to satisfy our need to feel significant by letting those we love know/feel how significant they are to us. 

Take away: The most fulfilling way to feel significant is to let those you love know/feel how significant they are to you. The secret to living is giving.

Be Seen

my name is perfectionist

 

 

My name is Coach Erik and I am a recovering perfectionist. 

 
Perfectionism masks our feelings of shame and inadequacy. It’s the fear of being vulnerable and the robber of the joy and intimacy we all crave. 
 
The transformation happens when we allow ourselves to be “seen.” To be vulnerable. To speak our truth without shame, guilt or judgement. To feel perfectly imperfect. 
 
Take away: Vulnerability creates intimacy. Intimacy creates love. Love heals shame and allows us to experience unbridled joy.
