It's Time to Drive Beyond Your Current Problems

Posted by Jillian Harrington on Sunday, August 11, 2013, In : be powerful 

Okay.  So we all have problems.  Welcome to being a human being.  Hoorah!

We don't like these problems.  Weight problems.  Money problems.  Drama problems.  Relationship problems.


We all have these problems in our lives, and the great thing is, that they are wonderful opportunities for us to grow. 

These problems are our school work of life. 

They are the big projects for the classes we've signed up for.  They may be our final exam, or thesis project, or even the dreaded group work.

It's Time for You to Stop Putting Up with Your Life

Posted by Jillian Harrington on Wednesday, February 6, 2013, In : be powerful 
Sometimes you have to get angry.

Let me back up a moment here, and let you in on something about me:  I am not very good at being angry.  I don't like being around angry people, and avoid being angry as much as I possibly can.  It is very, very rare to see me angry - I tend to just let things roll off me, or try to understand why things are the way they are.  Certainly I can get frustrated, or irritated, or moody.  But not angry.  (But when I do get angry - watch out!!  My Aries nature really ...

The Secret to a Kickass Life

Posted by Jillian Harrington on Thursday, July 26, 2012, In : be powerful 
Its come around to a year since I've been coaching people to create a delicious life; helping them remove the blocks that have been holding them back.  I'll be honest here, it is quite fun and amazing to be a coach - you get to watch the a ha moments, the tears as they release old baggage, and begin to see a new life unfold.  It is quite the treat for me. 

In fact, it's been pretty damn interesting, because one trend keeps coming up in my clients.  Over and over again, I see clients who hav...

Your Weakness Is Your Strength

Posted by Jillian Harrington on Monday, March 26, 2012, In : be powerful 
A little secret about me.  That is not too secret.  I talk.  A lot.  I'm a real little chatterbox.

I always have been, ever since I was a child.  One favorite family story:  it's open house day, and my parents come in to my first grade class room.  All the desks are grouped together in islands of 4 or 5 desks.  And then, off to the side, is one solitary desk.  I bring my parents over to that desk, and proudly exclaim, "This is my desk!  I have a visiting problem!".

And so it has always been.

It ...

You Are Better Than You Think

Posted by Jillian Harrington on Wednesday, March 21, 2012, In : be powerful 
This message is for you.  Yep, if you are reading this, than the following applies.

You are better than you think.

You have those judgements in your head.  Judgements that try to put you in your place.  They think they are helping you, making you a better person, by pointing out your flaws so you know where to grow.

The only problem is: they're wrong.

In psychology, there is a diagnosis called body dysmorphic disorder.  Simply put, people who have this disorder don't see what everyone else ...

Humility is Bullshit.

Posted by Jillian Harrington on Thursday, October 27, 2011, In : be powerful 

I recently watched one of those human tragedy type shows where mothers (and reluctant fathers) put their daughters through the pageant experience at age 6, or whatever.  You know the ones I'm talking about, very JonBenet, where the little girls get tarted up with make-up and are made to sing and dance and get crowned for how cute they are.  The kind that reinforces that girls must be beautiful in order to count.

So.  I was watching this show the way one can't help but stare at the car wreck on...

My Girl Marie on Fear vs. Intuition

Posted by Jillian Harrington on Saturday, August 27, 2011, In : be powerful 
I'm going a bit off the routine here, because I wanted to share this delicious video from Marie Forleo.  I heart Marie, she is a sassy lady with some tasty nuggets of wisdom, which she shares on a weekly basis in her Q&A Tuesday videos (to which I'm addicted).  She is a real inspiration to me, and thought it would be selfish to keep this one to myself.

The one thing I would add to her video though!!  Because I've had this conversation with many of my clients as well - how do you know if ...

Think Yourself Free

Posted by Jillian Harrington on Saturday, August 27, 2011, In : be powerful 

It all begins in your head.  Everything that you want in life, and everything that you don't want in your life, gets pulled in to your existence by how you think. 

We tend to believe our thoughts happen in response to what is going on around us.  But the opposite is actually true.  Our thoughts are the seeds from which our life is born. 

Imagine that you are on a boat in the ocean.  You aren't really headed in the direction that you want to go, but your boat is in a strong current, and...
