Use, Don’t Refuse the Muse

 

A Muse is considered your source of personal inspiration.While the original term refers to goddesses in Greek mythology, today anything that you derive your spark of creativity from might be considered your Muse.

We might be inspired by anything our senses experience,by an event we take part in or even a cause we are passionate about.Sometimes our muse is a mentor or someone who gives us permission to run with our ideas,our passion,our dreams.

I recently heard an interview with an ice hockey player who shared that before he could even skate, he would dream of hoisting that Stanley Cup over his head while skating on the ice.His Muse was the picture in his mind of what he could be.

Back in the 80’s, Bruce Springsteen sang,“You can’t start a fire without a spark” in Dancing in the Dark.So, really a muse is often the spark that starts everything.

Even people who might believe themselves to be less than creative have a Muse;something that moves them to release their talents, opinions,skill or energy to “start something.”

Call it whatever you want but that voice that keeps calling you is trying to get your attention and often a true Muse doesn’t stop calling even when you wish it would.

So, what is YOUR Muse? Is it something you witnessed, something you read, something that speaks to your soul?Does your Muse keep you up at night with ideas or cause you to daydream about how something could be?

And when you discovered your Muse, did you choose to follow or refuse to let it lead you?

Sometimes our unhappiness stems from refusing instead of choosing when our Muse is calling.

We sense a passion or deep interest in something but without following it further, we might smother the very Muse that has been placed in our life to be our message.

It’s not like some voodoo or juju and definitely not just a magical wish.Think of your Muse as the way you experience what gets you dreaming, creating,following through and if you think you haven’t met your Muse yet, here are 15 questions to help you look for it and find the spark that starts the fire:

  1. Where do you go to clear your head or find your soul?
  2. What books do you feel drawn to read?
  3. What activity is tops on your list when you think of how you like to spend your time?
  4. What hobbies do you have?
  5. What movies, TV shows or plays hold the most appeal to you?
  6. Where do you enjoy vacationing or taking a break?
  7. Who is someone you love spending all your time with?
  8. What do other people tell you is your gift?
  9. What causes or issues pull at your heartstrings?
  10. What experience do you replay over and over in your mind?
  11. What did you always want to do or be when you were younger?
  12. What do you love to do in your free time?
  13. If you had unlimited resources and never really HAD to work, what would you do with your time?
  14. If you were only given a short time to live, what would you do differently?
  15. What do others compliment you on or seek your advice about?

Your Muse is out there and waiting. USE don’t REFUSE the MUSE! It can be Life Changing!

 

I’ve helped many people respond to their Muse and learn how to create a stream of income from it and I would love to help you as well. Set up a COMPLIMENTARY CONSULT, there’s no obligation and let’s see if we can find the spark that creates your fire.

Want a Little Business A`La Carte?

https://kathybrunner.com

One of my friends is a bit compulsive about any food presented to her.She often prefers any liquid foods to be a’la carte. Whether a gravy, sauce or type of condiment, she simply enjoys having those items on the side rather than on top or mixed in with her meal.

Many people prefer to start or even keep a business that way.

They are perhaps employed full or part-time as an employee and want to start a business but logistically must do it “on the side.”

Now many people will tell you that is not a wise way to start a business, but I totally disagree.

I started my first business while working full time as an employee.Yes, it took some inventive strategies to make sure I was able to juggle both positions effectively and it certainly involves some grit and stamina, but I know if I did it, you can too!

Many of my clients have A`La Carte businesses.They are either transitioning from traditional employment or have elected to grow a business on the side in addition to their current career.

A`la Carte businesses can be just as, if not more successful than even running a business without any career competition especially if you have the right mindset and determination.

Here are FIVE Necessary Factors that contribute to Successful A` La Carte businesses.

  1. TIME MANAGEMENT…It’s difficult enough to have a career without a side business and still manage a family and home.Running an A` la Carte business requires putting into place time management strategies to work on your side business to help it be successful without compromising relationships, health, or current employment .
  2. RELATIONAL SUPPORT…Working at a job and then running a business A`La Carte requires communication among all involved. Your significant other, family members and other colleagues needs to be “on the same page” for your business to grow and become successful.
  3. ADAPTABILITY…Few people can start a business A`La Carte and not experience some obstacles. One of my clients had a perfect schedule mapped out to be able to grow her business on the side while working part time. However, when a colleague had an emergency, my client was asked to move into full time employment for several months. Her Plan B changed immediately and she had to be adaptable and resilient in order not to let her new venture just sit on the back burner.
  4. COMMITMENT…A side business is not like a hobby that you get to whenever you have time. A true side business requires consistent attention and dedication. It’s very hard to have a side business that only “works” when you make time for it. You must be as committed to growing your side business as you are to doing whatever other jobs you have.
  5. ABILITY TO DELEGATE WHAT NEEDS DELEGATED…I am not saying your five year old should respond to your email or your teenage son become your courier service, but many people who start businesses on the side want to save as much money as possible but often at the expense of trying to juggle everything themselves. KNOW what you are not good at and ask for help in the areas which are your weaknesses. It is foolish to try and wear all the hats particularly when you are juggling another job. Sometimes delegation is necessary on the other parts of your life outside of your new business.

Often clients contact me who have been trying to grow a business A`La Carte and wonder why things are not working as they should. Sometimes they just need to make a few adjustments to help their venture grow smoothly.There is nothing worse than having the skills necessary to grow a business but becoming stuck at some step of growth because there is a snag somewhere and you can’t seem to fix it. Often being so close to the problem prevents a business owner from being able to truly diagnosis the problem and discover a more viable solution.

I tell clients wanting to start a business “on the side”, THREE IMPORTANT RULES when starting a new business while working in traditional employment

  1. NEVER COMPROMISE YOUR SOLE SOURCE OF INCOME TRYING TO START YOUR NEW BUSINESS
  2. DON’T ASSUME YOUR FAMILY AND FRIENDS WILL SUPPORT YOUR VENTURES
  3. INVEST IN THE RIGHT KIND OF HELP TO GROW YOUR BUSINESS EFFECTIVELY.

So, Maybe it IS time to start your business A`La Carte.I can promise you this might be one of the best decisions you have ever made.But, it is an overwhelming job to try and launch a side business while working for someone else.I’d love to help you start efficiently and grow successfully.

Schedule a Complimentary Consult and let’s see what you need to do to get your Business A`La Carte ready to rock your world.

What’s On Your Professional Bucket List?

Everyone seems to have written a bucket list at some point.I have mine framed and hung in our family room.It reminds me of what I truly want to do and often helps me decide something I am pondering if I believe it will help me complete an item.

I think we need different bucket lists at different points in our life.Certainly if you made a bucket list in your twenties, you might want to review and revise it again as your seasons of life change. One of my friends made a bucket list for both of her children during their first year of life.She included all the things she wanted to help them learn in their first 18 years.She gave it to them on their graduation day and they were encouraged to add to the list.

But, how many people create a professional bucket list;a list of how you want to earn a living, grow professionally and create a career path?

Here are some questions to ask yourself to help you develop some goals on your professional bucket list.

  1. How would I love to earn my living?(Yes, WRITE it down. You’ll never create a path to work at doing what you love if you can’t even commit to admiting it.)
  2. What position would I create to showcase my skills?
  3. Where do I want my career path to end up in the next year, 5 years, 10 years?
  4. What would I really like to get more training or instruction learning to do?
  5. What do I refuse to compromise moving forward professionally?
  6. Where would I like to work?
  7. What income would I like to earn?

Asking yourself these questions can help you create a plan to identify what you want on your professional bucket list.

You can spend a lifetime dreaming of the trips you want to take, the home you want to have, the experiences you want to participate in and you can add each to your bucket list but unless you have a professional bucket list that will provide you with a future that is successful, resourceful and sustained, you may never be able to realize the dreams you have on your other bucket lists.

So, wherever you find yourself this summer, start writing down how, where and what you want your professional career be.Consider this the first step of your grand plan and then stop settling for anything less.

Most people will  spend over 2,200 hours a year working and close to a million hours in their lifetime earning a living.

Isn’t it about time you spent a few hours planning how you want that time to pay off?

Living Life on Your Terms

What does it mean to live life on your terms? A simplistic definition might be to do whatever you want to do but that can’t always be possible.Life has rules, parameters, boundaries and often an unpredictable ebb and flow.

Living life on your terms is more about being yourself in each circumstance.It’s about doing what represents your values, beliefs and nature.It’s about not pretending or imagining yourself to be what others want but rather being comfortable in your own skin.

So How Do You Know You’re Living Life on Your Terms?

Living life on your terms means listening to your gut and not waiting for permission to try something you have always wanted.

Living life on your terms means not resigning yourself to letting others live your life for you.

Living life on your terms means taking ownership of your dreams and goals while not being worried or afraid that those dreams and goals don’t meet the expectations of others.

Have you put the things that bring you joy and contentment on the back burner?

Maybe you have told yourself it’s not the right time, or place or even that YOU are not the right person to enjoy those things.

Perhaps you don’t live life on your terms because you are afraid of what others might think, say, or learn about you.

That’s not living. That’s compromising the only life you will ever get.

If you have been waiting to work at your Dream Work and don’t know how to make it happen,is it because you are afraid, insecure, worried about what others might say or just not sure what to do first?

Maybe you hear music that begs you to dance to a different drum but you can’t seem to get your feet moving.

You know you really want to.You know you really need to.You know you really have to, but you’re just not moving.

You just watch, or worse, you dance the waltz when you really want to tango.

It’s NOT your terms and NOT your dream and now it’s NOT even your dance.

See, It’s just like these birds. One is living life on his terms and the other, well the other is just living. Living is not bad but living life on YOUR terms is often spectacular.

Click on picture to watch

Because, Somedays YOU have to dance. The music sounds just right, it speaks to your soul, you feel the rhythm and you just want to break into what makes you, well, YOU!

Ready to move from your day job to your DREAM WORK. Schedule a Complimentary Consult.I have helped many people do just that and I want you to enjoy your dance before your music stops as well.

Don’t miss the chance to dance when the music speaks to your heart.

My New Rescue Dog and the Picture in Your MInd

This has been a week of mixed emotions for me.On Monday we said “Good-bye” to the Weimaraner we rescued more than 12 years ago.He truly was an amazing animal and one I bonded with completely.Everything about this week has been bittersweet.

Tomorrow we will arrive to meet our new special boy and take him back to his now furever home.I am anxious, excited and scared.I hope that the picture of what comes next in my mind will come to pass.

That’s what it is like to dream about something and then realize it has the potential to happen.

Now, don’t get me wrong.I’m no Pollyanna.I have another dog at home and know there will be some bumpy times until everyone settles in.Expecting this helps me be realistic but I still have some anxiety about those bumpy moments.I’m in this rescue for the long run and am willing to do what it takes to make that picture in my mind of two happy dogs playing and loving life together happen.

What about that picture in your mind? You have a picture in your mind too; a dream, a vision of what you really want to be doing.I bet you feel mixed emotions about that dream as well.

Maybe it’s still a dream because you are nervous,excited and scared and because you know there would be bumpy times trying to make it happen. Maybe it’s still a dream because as much as you want it to happen you just can’t seem to get started.

So it stays just a picture in your mind.

Every time we want something badly enough and let it stay just a picture in our mind, we lose a little part of our soul. It’s a lot like being hungry but not letting yourself eat anything.

The picture in my mind started several months ago. A starved dog, just skin and bones crossed my pet searches.He was too famished for a vet to even estimate his age. But, I knew this dog was the one for me.

I will travel 1000 miles to get this animal and bring him home.I will be nervous, excited and scared to meet him as I wonder if it will work out.

Let’s face it, we never know whether the picture in our mind will really work out until we try.

And I am not satisfied having my picture be another person’s reality.So I will take a chance.

Maybe it’s time for you to do the same.Stop dreaming about the picture and take a chance living the reality.Take that first step towards something you really want.

Because the picture in your mind becomes someone’s reality every day.

Isn’t it time it became YOURS?

I’ll keep you posted, but for now, here’s a before/after of the picture in my mind.

Tomorrow he becomes my reality.

CREATING A RELEVANT BUSINESS

 

There are countless new businesses opening daily.I live in Georgia, which was once again ranked the #1 place to start a business in the country(WOOHOO!).But there is no hiding the fact that 96% (YIKES!) of businesses fail within ten years of starting.

Given such grim statistics one would wonder why even bother becoming a business owner!

Yet, owning your own business is a TICKET TO FREEDOM in many ways.You can set your own hours (although you will most likely work more than a typical 40 hr. work week), determine how much income you really want to make and even choose who you want to work with.You certainly don’t have those kinds of choices as an employee.Sure, being your own boss comes with some pretty significant responsibilities but I don’t hear from successful business owners about how they wish they were employees and I know my fellow coaches don’t either.

So why do only a handful of businesses succeed?While there may be statistical data that point to a specific set of critieria.I think the number one way to remain a successful business is to be RELEVANT.

As a business owner you must evaluate how relevant your business is.It’s not just a matter of whether it is making a profit today but how well will it succeed in making a profit next year, three years from now or even ten years from now?

There are some significant questions business owners and potential business owners need to ask themselves on a consistent basis to make sure the business is RELEVANT and SUSTAINABLE. Some of those questions include:

What will it take to stay profitable in ten years?

How will the way I meet consumer’s needs now change in the next year, five or ten years?

What is the first step I need to take in making my sure my business has relevancy?

What is the best way to stay top of mind and develop a strategy for remaining relevant?

What aspects of my business are thwarting its ability to stay relevant and prosperous?

If you are thinking of starting a business or already are a successful business owner, keep in mind that relevance can be lost in a single interaction especially with the way people communicate today.

Do you want to make sure the business you start or have will be AROUND IN TEN YEARS?

If you want to be sure your business has what it takes to be relevant, join me on Monday May 15 at 7:30 p.m. for a FREE TELECONFERENCE

Are You a Settler?

If someone asks what you do, have you ever described yourself as a settler?

In the Pioneer days, settlers took a stand and created a habitat often where there were few other people but we don’t talk much about people being settlers today.

But you might well be a settler.

The type of settler who is not going make history but is going to make excuses.

You know this type of settler.The person who wants to lose weight but never starts a diet or exercise program.The one who really wants to reconcile with members of his own family but fails to ever pick up the phone and make the first call.Have you been telling yourself someone should do something about a particular situation that moves your heart, but you have not taken the first step to be that someone? Do you dislike the work you are doing but have no plan for how to change that?

What have you settled for that you are not proud of?

There are as many reasons for settling as there are things we settle for.

Maybe we don’t think we have the resources to do anything but settle.

Perhaps we want to create change but don’t know how to start.

Maybe we think refusing to settle makes us look selfish.

Often we are simply too lazy to do what it takes to stop being a settler.

I know because I was guilty of settling for things I wasn’t happy with too.

Not settling for something often requires us to get out of our comfort zone and stop taking the easy way out and that can be scary, require energy and be time consuming (It takes time to do a work-out at the gym or volunteer for a cause and a lot of energy to look for different work).

But, when we stop settling for what we most likely never really wanted in the first place,we create a kind of new normal that gives us the power to impact our own lives and the lives of others.

What would it be like if today was the last day you settled for the way you looked or felt, the money you made or the circumstances you are in?

What would it be like to stop settling for what you don’t really want?

Settling is not giving up. You give up when you at least try something. Settling is worse.

Settling is giving in and never trying in the first place.

Settling is allowing defeat to become a comfortable companion.

The only way to stop settling is to stop the madness of doing the same thing over and over. To stop saying “Yes” when you want to say, “No”. To quit the things that don’t resonate with you and to seize the opportunity to take advantage of every opportunity to move in the direction you want to go.

It won’t be easy or occur overnight, because we don’t learn to settle in just an instance but develop this behavior over time.

No one but you can decide today is the day you stop settling and start going after what matters to you.

If you are done settling for a career you don’t enjoy. let’s talk. I can show you how to stop being a settler. Schedule a complimentary consult or settle for missing out again.

Five Things To Do Just For Yourself

The country artist, Toby Keith sang a little ditty a few years ago which included the words;
“I wanna talk about me
Wanna talk about I
Wanna talk about number one
Oh my me my
What I think, what I like, what I know, what I want, what I see…”

Sounds selfish doesn’t it? But I think frequently we fail to recognize the important things we need to do in our life, just for us.

You can spend all your life taking care of a family, loved ones, colleagues and good friends and yet overlook the critical elements you must address to take care of yourself.

I think there are FIVE things every single person needs to make sure they consistently adress in life. These are things that are non-negotiable and actually will help you become a better person because you have made them a priority.

FIVE THINGS YOU NEED TO ADDRESS JUST FOR YOURSELF

YOUR HEALTH

I recently talked with a client who was so stressed out about her current work situation that she wasn’t sleeping, was losing weight and was becoming more and more withdrawn.I told her to see a physician before we began coaching.She hadn’t been to one in years and was in no shape to start looking for a new career when she could barely get through the day.Never compromise your health because you think you don’t have time, resources or because you don’t “feel that bad”. A yearly check-up literally is a life saver.

YOUR INNER MUSE, DREAMS and GOALS

Every single person has a talent or gift. You don’t have to plan to write a best seller, but if you enjoy writing, then create some time to write. Maybe you won’t be a world famous musician but that shouldn’t stop you from taking those piano lessons you always wanted. Stop telling yourself it’s a silly activity to enjoy your creative side. I have a grown friend who loves to color and another who has tossed some culinary creations in the garbage but that hasn’t stopped her from trying new ones all the time. You miss much out of life by not consistently participating in the things that make you smile.( Even if they end up in the trash)

Sadly, I frequently coach people who have put a lid on their dreams for decades.They come into coaching with more regrets about what they didn’t do than dreams about what they can.Without a dream, a destination, a goal, we live a hamster in a wheel existence. Your dream doesn’t have to be final. Dreams can change but you should take time to regularly ask yourself if you are moving in the direction of your dreams or letting your circumstances become excuses for why you are not.Do you let your dreams be controlled by others or do you regularly take time to plan the steps to get to where you want to be?

YOUR FINANCES

Yeah, I know. Everyone wants more money but few people consistently take inventory in looking into where their money is going. Whether you have $5.00 or $5,000, you will never have more if you don’t know how to handle it. It’s more than what you have left after you pay the bills. You need to regularly look at where your money is going. It’s easy to say, “There is nothing left after I pay everything.” but that is not a strategy. A strategy is a budget, an inventory and a plan. If you don’t know how to get there yourself,Dave Ramsey has some excellent free resources.Money doesn’t buy happiness but the peace of mind having control over your financial resources can be life changing.

YOUR TIME

People are frequently reluctant to take time for themselves. Parents, especially ones working outside of the home feel guilty taking any time away from their children. Mothers often understand the need to take a respite break and yet are critical of other women who have regularly schedule time just for themselves. You are only human. Everyone needs a break. If you have not consistently scheduled in a long walk, window shopping, lunch with a friend, a golf game or even some mindless time on Pinterest, then you need to recognize you are contributing to your own burnout by letting everyone suck up your time. You are not selfish to need a breather, you are smart for scheduling one.

YOUR RELATIONSHIPS

Sometimes you have to be sweet to people who annoy you, but if you have permitted yourself to tolerate abuse, indifference, neglect or constant criticism from people in your life, you deserve better. Stop spending time with people who choke your every breath. Yes, you might have to work for a crummy boss (but only until you find a better job). You might have to attend a social function with some horrible relatives, but if you let them know the rules you play by, you don’t have to be the carpet. You can learn to stay away from and say “no more” to people who want to control you but only if you make this a priority in your life just for you.

Sometimes we need to do things for ourselves because we can and we should.

It’s like putting on your own oxygen mask before you attend to your child if an airplane is going down. You must learn basic survival skills for yourself in order to be even minimally effective for someone else.

When you learn to regularly take time to evaluate your health, finances,time,relationships dreams and inner muse, You become the YOU you were truly meant to be.

What other areas do you think people need to personally and regularly evaluate?

What areas have you allowed others to control for you?

What About Your Show?

When a baseball player first gets to the major leagues, he is welcomed to the “show”. The phrase,”You’re going to the show” often signifies a move up into a truly professional league, whether baseball, hockey or basketball.

Years of practice, hard work, commitment and discipline finally pay off with an opportunity to show off skills at the highest platform.

Players in all sports dream of the day they get to the “show”.


What about you? What do you imagine your chance at the “show” will be?

Are you hoping to make an impact in your current career but just not sure how you might go about that yet?

Do you see yourself starting a non-profit and creating a change you have always dreamed about?

Or maybe you have a little voice that is constantly telling you to start a business and take the skills you have and create a lifestyle you always dreamed of.

Everyone has an idea of what their “show” might look like.

No player would ever choose to miss an opportunity to play in the show even if they did not feel truly ready.The “show” is the ultimate goal.

Not always true for those looking to live out career dreams however. Often, even people who have spent a great deal of their lives honing skills for their chance at their “show”, hesitate, make excuses or talk themselves out of performing on the biggest stage of their lives.

If you have been thinking about changing a career direction for some time, you have no doubt spent some time imagining what your life would look like and what role you would have in the “show”.That is exactly what happens to every athlete. They take time to envision, create a plan to achieve what they want and then begin the steps to get closer to that major performance. They work with coaches and specialists who help them get to their destination more efficiently.

Maybe you have an idea or dream but you are stuck creating the plan and taking the steps.Trust me, like a dedicated athlete that practices and practices a skill, there are steps to take to help you achieve the exact career goals you imagine.

All it takes is saying, “Yes”…

“Yes, I am ready to start working towards my ultimate goal”

“Yes, I want a specific protocal I can follow to help me be the best I can be at my “show.”

“Yes, I am willing to commit to a plan for success.”

“Yes, I believe I have what it takes to get to the show.”

And of course,when it’s time, “Yes, put me in coach, I want a chance at the show!”

Don’t stop at your dreams or ideas.Imagine if Babe Ruth just thought about playing baseball or Jack Nicklaus never played golf except at Putt-Putt?Imagine if Bill Gates waited until he thought the world was ready and deserving of computers or if Walt Disney let all the naysayers talk him out of his wild imagination?

You know what you want.It’s not up to others to chart your path for you.You don’t need approval from the gods to use a skill or talent you have to create a life you want.

What you need is your own permission to say,”Yes”, because dreaming about the “show” and performing in it are two entirely different things.

Maybe you have been dreaming for a long time. Isn’t it finally time to work with a coach and start your journey to that stage?

Every person who has ever been to the “show” will tell you it was worth everything they did. See what some of my “players” had to say.

So, maybe it’s time to step up to the plate and give it a shot.

Life is short. Don’t miss your chance to play in your own game! The best performance of your life could be just around the corner.
