September 2015 Synergy Success e-Zine

What A Day of Transformation!

"Building a Climate of Success"

with Stafford County HeadStart staff


Happy Labor day!

This past month I've been fully immersed in what I love most ~ learning, coaching, and teaching!

As a purpose-driven high-achiever with a history of pushing myself too hard, I'm grateful for a mentor that calls a quarterly "time-out" -- an opportunity to step away from working in my business to working on my business. Because she honors the importance of nurturing the SOUL and re-connecting with "why" I do what I do, I'm able to stay fresh, focused, and moving forward without burning out.

See, It's not about a reactive lifestyle that runs you into the ground or
sucks the life out of you until you break down or throw
in the towel to escape the stress and overwhelm.
It's about connecting with who we're called to BECOME and
the positive difference we are meant to create through our work 
that personally fulfills us while our professional lives blossom.
Goodbye Toxic Success
We don't serve ANYONE in the highest way from a depleted state. Red flags of Reactivity begin to fly when you are Overwhelmed, Overworked, Overstressed, Oversensitive and on the edge of being OVER IT!

Life's too short to just get by in a Reactive lifestyle of worrying about getting it perfect before you begin, waiting to feel good enough or wondering if you're qualified yet... 

So here's what I've said Goodbye to:
  • Goodbye to my long-standing relationship with struggle.
  • Goodbye to working harder, not smarter.
  • Goodbye to the chaos of a reactive lifestyle.
  • Goodbye to flying solo and doing it all myself.
  • Goodbye to feeling "not enough, not ready, not qualified."
  • Goodbye to not being seen, heard, and supported.
  • Goodbye to trading authenticity in for approval.
  • Goodbye to being haunted by mistakes or missed opportunities.
  • Goodbye to believing that my feelings must be facts.
  • Goodbye to focusing on the drama of what divides.
  • Goodbye to expecting others to know what I need.
  • Goodbye to being afraid to fail and equally afraid to succeed.
Hello High Service
We serve others in the highest way by making daily deposits into a reservoir or resilience that is filled through a Restorative lifestyle that includes self-care as a top priority.
Coach Challenge! What will YOU say Goodbye to so you can say Hello to High Service?
Please reply to me here and I'll hold this intention for you :)

"I am really glad that I decided to try life coaching! It was nice to have someone check in and make sure that I was on track with my life goals.
The activities and assignments helped me to actually take action on the changes I wanted to make and I could see them on paper.  I will continue to use the tools that I picked up while working with Christina.
I can say that I really do feel a lot more confident in myself and in my ability to stand up for myself and what I believe in!"
