If you’re a coach, entrepreneur, or a heart-centered person wanting to make a difference in the world, playing big means different things on different levels for everyone. In order to make a bigger, more meaningful impact on others, start with YOU! The strategies above are simple enough but not always easy. It’s a good start. Let’s dive deeper here with a short story of my past few days.
Selfcare is always, always, always top priority! You cannot play BIG without being 100% all in and being responsible for all areas of your life. Start with being open to learning about how to best care for your emotional, physical, mental and spiritual needs to renew yourself. After all, how can you give 100% of yourself if you’re only 50% or closed minded?
“Renewal requires opening yourself up to new ways of thinking and feeling” Deborah Day
What I used to call Mindset, I’m now redefining as my MindUnset. It’s my way of telling myself that my mind is not ‘set’ or fixed but always open to learning new things, like writing this blog, doing FB lives or showing up at my health coaching live events to discovering my emotional health is key to healing my own challenges in business and life.
Since moving back to the US to look after my parents, caregiving is something that my wife and I are learning about EVERY day. We’re completely new to this! I quickly forgot about my own selfcare, my own vision and our business goals kept shifting. Many times, we thought we had made the wrong choices in the past 3 years. Can I really still help others achieve their dreams as self doubt and feelings of being stuck kick in?

Enter the Health Coach Institute (HCI), who has been the door to so many opportunities, ideas and people that align with my purpose and is helping me achieve my dreams, especially through collaboration. HCI Live Phoenix was my 3rd event showing up to which was especially challenging given my situation at my parent’s home (where we also live). My mom’s health has taken a little downward turn in the past months and our business and training have stalled.
Just before coming to Phoenix to meet my tribe where I feel ‘safe’ and people ‘get’ me and I get to feel empowered again, circumstances, family and help showed up that allowed us to travel. I was able to show up for myself at HCI Live as this is one of my emotional, mental and spiritual needs, to connect with my ‘tribe’!

Thank you, Sean Stephenson for inspiring us again to be ‘Masters of our own Emotions’ and especially Juan Pulido for the support and inspiration you have shared vulnerably with me that will allow me to have that ‘conversation’ with my own parents one day soon, to forgive and to do, give, share everything with more Love & Compassion.
Thank you to my new tribe members I had the great pleasure of meeting for the first time and too many of the friends that have been on this journey together since the beginning of our HCI experiences.
Thank you especially to Carey, Stacey and Eric for creating the ‘revolution’ that we are able to change the world with.
Thank you to my Tai Chi and Qigong tribe I had the pleasure of meeting, many for the first time and the joy of sharing the energy, nature and being barefoot on the grass of the cool and sunny Arizona mornings.
