Are you hitting a brick wall when it comes to your career, purpose and direction in life?

Are you hitting a brick wall when it comes to your career, purpose and direction in life?

Four years ago I had hit the proverbial “brick wall” in my career and life.

I had been busting my butt for about a year at that point and I was working hard towards a promotion in my corporate job.

Sadly when the promotion was given to someone else I felt so defeated and stuck.

So many things in my life were not going right. My relationship was in turmoil, I was stuck in a job that gave 1.5% raises if I was lucky, my kids were almost grown and off doing their own thing and I desperately felt like, there’s got to be more to life than this.

A couple years prior, a friend of mine told me about hiring a life coach… “A Life Coach?” I said, “What is that??”

She explained to me how this person had really helped her to heal some negative stuff from her past, had helped her feel more direction and purpose in life and she also helped her to go from a career in banking, where she was making about $70,000 a year to a position as a CFO making $125,000.

So when things weren’t going the way I had hoped, I scheduled a call with this woman and in my first session, I was blown away by the many “Ah ha” moments I had on the phone with her.

AND… guess what I did? I hired a coach!

After three months of coaching to get clear on the focus and direction I wanted my life to go in, I started my own business.

Four years later, I’m excited to say that I’ve taken my career from helping people to heal from the past and find love to helping people find their purpose and career path.

Did you know that most people searching for a new career spend about 95% of their time looking online but only 4% of the jobs out there are actually posted online?

That means the rest of the available jobs are in that “Hidden Job Market”.

Over the last year I have had more and more people coming to me to help them:

  • Feel more empowered in their career direction.
  • Gain confidence to make a career change.
  • Start their own business.
  • Live life with more purpose.
  • Embrace more passion in all areas of life.
  • Resolving fears, which may be holding them back from achieving anything they desire.

Over the last 9 months I have been working with a business partner who has been coaching people for more than 27 years to uncover and secure their purpose when it comes to career.

We recently had a 52-year-old man who was struggling in sales for a local equipment company here in Charleston. He had no degree, was making about $50,000 and we helped him to create a unique plan to get in front of the decision maker of a machinery company. The job wasn’t advertised but he was “packaged and promoted” so well, they created a position for him and he is now making $95,000 a year.

While I still work with people through dating and relationship challenges, I am excited to share how much my business has expanded to empowering and enabling my clients to have a career that is fulfilling, a life they can be proud of and the knowledge to achieve anything they desire!

“I have looked in the mirror every morning and asked myself: “If today were the last day of my life, would I want to do what I am about to do today?” And whenever the answer has been “No” for too many days in a row, I know I need to change something.” -Steve Jobs

For Open-Minded People Only

For Open-Minded People Only

Recently I had a debate that pushed A LOT of my patience buttons. One thing I don’t have much patience for being “Closed-Minded” so it was a clear indication for me that I needed to write this struggle down and share.

Have you been struggling with feeling tired with the life you’ve been living? Do you feel like you’ve been searching for this elusive thing they call “Happiness”? Have you searched in churches, multiple careers, multiple relationships, etc and yet you still haven’t found HAPPY?

I’ve been a seeker since I was a child. I was always seeking connection with God. I was always seeking a new car, redecorating my house, new clothes, feeling unsatisfied in my relationships.

When I went through my divorce in 2008 I walked away from my picture-perfect life, my four bedroom house on 2 acres, the husband who had never cheated or abused, but I knew something was still missing from my life.

After walking away from everything I owned, I set out on a journey to find me. Being stripped of all of my possessions, moved into a 2 bedroom apartment in a town 750 miles from everything I knew, on a quest to find HAPPINESS.

After a lot of heartache, which I will spare you because it is all in my upcoming book, “Fearless Love”, I found myself 60% happy with my life. I had made some new friends who encouraged me to seek solitude in FAITH and our church.

I believed in and felt I understood God, the Bible, Christ, love for mankind and helping my community but there was still something missing. I wasn’t looking for 60% happy I was looking for 100% with the occasional 10% slip up where I might fall down the emotional steps of life here and there.

One day I met a woman whose sister was a life coach. “A life coach? What is that?”
She explained it was kind of like counseling but with a more hands-on approach. She helped people to awaken to their life purpose and to help them get unstuck and moving forward in their personal lives, career, relationships etc.

So I thought, “what the heck, I’ve done counseling off and on for years and that was an extremely slow process. I’m somewhat happy because I found some peace and salvation in my church community, I’m a bit miserable in my job but thankful I had one…. Something was still missing.”

Three months of working with this woman completely opened my eyes.
I learned an awful lot about my “Thought Process”, learned about meditation, learned how my thoughts can either make or break everything I want to have in my life.

I learned to have a relationship with God. Like to the point where I could still be me, not feel like I was constantly being judged or a hypocritical sinner, develop skills of being a better person, and have a deeply profound and connected relationship with God.

This completely changed my entire life!

I’ve come to the understanding that “religion” leads us to believe that we have to practically walk on water in order to be considered as “worthy” in the eyes of God. There’s this sense of fear projected by most religious organizations. “Do this or you’ll burn in hell!”

Who are they kidding, hell is right here on earth. We create our own hell.

We have been conditioned and brain washed by people always putting fear into us. There is an accident on the highway, you fear being late to work because you might get fired but throw common sense out the window that you might get into a car accident and die because you were in fear and rushing.

Why are we kept in constant fear?

I was in a bible study group once and really enjoyed the friendships I had formed, the togetherness of the group, the fact that I had shoulders to always cry on and after a few months I began to notice something that made me go, Hmmm…

It was a singles book study and every week we talked about our Woes. Who was sad, who got hurt, who is lonely, why their spouse cheated, why they were JUST SO DOWN.

It was a couple who was leading the group and I noticed that as nice as this couple was to open up their home and lives to strangers, they were also fantastic about keeping everyone dependent on constantly needing salvation. Relying on them for direction. Allowing us to stay in a state of FEAR, lack, and judgment.

Now I’m no Bible scholar but I’ve been a seeker of God since I was six years old, I’ve attended at least 20 churches of different religions over my lifetime, from being raised Catholic to studying with Jehovah’s Witnesses, and for me, organized religion has never been truly fulfilling.

It got me to a place where I felt a sense of comfort but not a sense of completeness.

After lots of research and finding the peace and happiness I had been looking for, I’ve come to understand 2 things:

  1. Christianity says, “God is out there, separate from us, separate from everything. We come into this life fundamentally flawed solely because we are human and are one wrong move from being cast out for all eternity. This is our one and only chance to prove God we are not the sinful creatures he believes we are in order to win his approval.
  2.  Spirituality says, “All is God and God is in all, energy is the fundamental building block of everything and energy has no beginning and no ending, it flows out from God and out through all things, therefore we (as a soul) have no beginning and no ending and are connected directly to God. Everything, because it is connected to God, is divine.

YOU ARE DIVINE and God loves you because you are an aspect of Him.

YOU ARE THE MEANS TO YOUR SALVATION. Doing the work to be a loving, accepting and contributing person on this earth is your purpose and means to a happy life.

It is only our misunderstanding ignorance and/or lack of self-love that keeps us from truly believing that.

Can you open your desire to understand?
When we learn how to change our thought processes, meditate, practice mindfulness, listen to spiritual leaders like Wayne Dyer, Marianne Williamson, Abraham Hicks, we can learn a new and fulfilling way to be.

I love Psalm 46:10, “Be still and know that I am God.”

It is when we are still, quieting our minds in meditation, slowing down from this crazy paced life, when we can fully be aware of the messages, signs, the knowing that can come to us just like it did to Job or Moses thousands of years before Jesus.

I always tell people, “Prayer is asking God for answers, meditation is quieting the mind long enough to hear the answers.”

Those answers don’t always come in words but if you are open to understanding, you will get the answers.

Now I consider myself to be a Christian, I believe there are great teachings in the bible, I believe in God, I believe in Christ, I believe in the 10 Commandments and the statement “do unto others as you would have them do unto you.”

But I also know from research that humankind dates back 200,000 years, civilization as we know it is about 6,000 years old, the Bible was published by man (channeled by God) about 400 years ago. It was re-written by men, not with typewriters or fancy machines but by imperfect men who spoke many languages and had to translate many times. Hebrew, Aramaic, Latin, German, etc.

Did you ever play “Whisper Down The Alley” when you were in school? Everyone in the class lines up so you have maybe 20 to 30 kids standing in line. At the front of the line the teacher whispers a message to the first student and it’s probably a small message, maybe five or six words, then that first student has to tell the second one, then the second tells the third, and so on and so forth. By the end of the line there is no way that sentence even resembles what the teacher told the first student.

Are we really too naïve to think that this could not have possibly happened with how many people were involved in the writings and translation or over how many thousands of years this transpired? Some research says there are lost books of the Bible that were never published. I don’t know if it’s really true but it seems logical to me considering part of the Bible was written at least 2,000 BC but only published 400 years ago.

I think it’s safe to say that at some point in time, before the Bible was published, man was following some sort of philosophy, doctrine, higher consciousness direction or feeling, etc.

You have a God given ability inside of you, we all do. You have a 6th sense but it’s really up to you to believe there are things beyond your understanding.

Do you know the story of Moses? What do you think would happen to you today if you walked up to a burning bush and the bush started talking to you? The bush says, “I AM GOD and I want you to go lead My people out of the state you live in.”

If you went to the pastor of your church to tell him this, what do you think they would do to you? Allow you to take your fellow Christians somewhere else? Commit you to a mental hospital? Tell you these are the devil’s tricks and call in the Catholic priest to do an exorcism?

Makes ya wonder! At least it makes me wonder. They didn’t do that to a murderer who lived to be 120 ish years old about 3,400 years ago.

Moses was supposed to be one of the greatest men to walk the earth and I bet you are too!

So I want to leave you with this:

I ask you to open your mind.

Trust that God wants the best for you.

Seek for answers if something feels off or missing.

Know that if we start living from a place of Love instead of a place of fear, you can open your world to so many wonderful possibilities!

HAPPINESS! Do you believe?

Need Greater Clarity About Your Relationships?

Need Greater Clarity About Your Relationships?

If you are reading this, then you want to receive greater clarity about your relationships, CORRECT? Well take some notes!

Most of us assume when we talk about “relationship issues” we are talking about romantic relationships but the primary relationship that is the cornerstone about relationships to anyone and that is the relationship with ourselves.

Have you ever noticed when you have problems in relationships one of the problems was you?

Did you ever get so excited around someone you like that you acted like a total idiot?

You know how sometimes you do really stupid stuff in relationships and then you say to yourself, “Oh my God I can’t believe I did that!”

One of my favorite studies of A Course In Miracles says, “It is not your job to seek for love, it is merely your job to seek the barriers you have against love coming!”

It’s a matter of knowing that we are perfect souls in this world. We don’t need plastic surgery, more money, be a more exciting person, etc… We need to removed barriers, not add more shit!

What are your barriers that are keeping love away? Ask yourself that question…What are they? 

Write down what you feel may be holding your back.

Now think of a magnet… A magnet just attracts without going out and seeking things to attract to it.
Having magnetic power will automatically attract what is meant to come to us when we are ready.

The universe is always sending a steady stream of opportunities to you. But often times we screw up those opportunities.

It’s like getting ready to run a marathon. You can’t expect to go out on the day of the race and perform well if you have not been training, practicing and eating healthy before race day. Your body needs to be in good physical shape leading up to that day.

This is why your spiritual practice could not be more important. In order to have success at anything in life we must work on the vehicle (aka ourselves).

You need to build yourself physically, emotionally, spiritually, mentally in order to be in successful relationships!

The more centered we are, which involves prayer, mindfulness and meditation, the more we attract positive and like minded people who are moving in the same direction.

Like attracts like!

Step 1 is looking at your junk and understanding why you do the things you do.

Looking at the fact that, as soon as I get close to someone I start becoming judgmental or as soon as I get into a relationship I start finding all these flaws or I keep meeting people who just play games. And here’s the problem… you don’t keep meeting people who play games, you keep giving these people your phone number. Are you feeling a bit desperate?

Step 2 is asking God to take it away.

Simple prayer: Dear God, I feel like such a failure at reaching out to love. Time and time again I have tried to open my heart and combine it with another and each time, it seems, I come up on the frailty and the scars within me. I need Your power to free me and release me. My commitment to separation, to being alone, to conflict overpower my best intention.
I try to build the most beautiful connection, and so many times I fail. Dear God, I surrender to you every idea and every thought I hold about relationships. Transform my thoughts, rearrange my energies. Make me into a person who knows how to love, to get it and to receive it, to honor it and to be in it. Erase my past failures. Make me new. I need a miracle, please! Amen!

Step 3 is starting a spiritual practice that works for you.

Now let’s start with explaining that religion does NOT equal spirituality in my book. You don’t have to go to church to have a spiritual practice. If you can come to the simple understanding that our thoughts and relationship with our own Soul can greatly transformer our lives then that is the beginning of what you need.
My spiritual practice includes a lot of teachings based on the law of attraction, a course in miracles, and mindfulness teachings from leaders all around the world.

I believe in one spiritual practice… LOVE!

Read all the books you can get your hands on, meditate on a daily basis, and try to practice, “do onto others as you would have them do onto you!”

Simple steps but if you would like to learn more, check out another one of my blogs about meditation here or schedule a complimentary session to help get your spiritual practice started. Also remember, it takes 21 days to start a habit or 21 days to break a habit. So when you start your spiritual practice remember that consistency is key. Schedule your “ME TIME” in your planner every day. Meditation and Mindfulness is like working out. When you go to the gym, you are going to receive results in the first couple of weeks but as long as you stay consistent and work at it every day then you will see results… Just stick with it!

Do this one thing to have more ABUNDANCE!

Do this one thing to have more ABUNDANCE!

OMG I have got to share this! The POWER of manifesting and how to use your money mindset to attract what you want. This can apply to money, dating, career, anything!

I’ve really taken the last couple months to take a little step back with my business, focus on how I really want to be able to impact people’s lives in 2016 and one thing that always comes up for me is:
“Leslie, you are the sole provider of your household, you can’t take a break, you can’t indulge in frivolous things, you can’t be so picky with choosing your clientele…”

But something huge happened for me over the last week and I’m so excited to tell you about this…

So check out these scenarios:

I booked a girls weekend trip to go visit my friend Holly in Dallas knowing well and good that I just released my online program and I need to be promoting that.

I decided not to take on any new clients until January a.k.a. no actual income. (What the hell was I thinking??)

I was also planning on packing light and not checking a bag but I decided to bring the extra large suitcase just in case I decided to do some shopping while in Dallas.

I said to Holly, “Girl, I can’t go crazy on this trip, I’m doing a lot of rebranding and new marketing stuff plus we also just booked a trip to Costa Rica for the following month”

(Have I mentioned I decided not to take on any new clients for 2 months??)

So I get to Dallas and we start having a blast.

The first day we indulge in some naughty food and drinks.
Second day we go shopping and I end up with 5 boxes of new shoes in front of me. In my mind I am saying, “Don’t go crazy Leslie, you have a lot of expenses going on right now.”
The Universe is saying, “Buy the shoes, Leslie, they were a great deal, enjoy!”
So the Universe wins, I’m treating myself!

We then decide to pop into this quaint little café and enjoy a delicious lunch. When we get the bill, it’s about half what we expected due to some lunch special! (Thank you Universe).

Next, we go into is a cute little boutique, I try on a shirt that I fell in love with but looked at the price tag and put it back. I walked around the store for a bit and Holly says, “But that shirt looks so good on you…” So I go back, grab the shirt and go to the register.
Upon talking to the cashier we find out that there is a 20% off coupon that she has behind the register and is willing to let me use it. (Thank you Universe).

Later that evening we are on our way to a wine and chocolate tasting but we decide to stop in another clothing store that has evening gowns. A week or so earlier I told Holly I need to buy an evening gown for my launch party that we are planning for my new book, “Fearless Love; Growing Through Divorce, Dating and Divine Purpose to Heal, Thrive and Attract the Love You Desire.”

So I try on three dresses and none of them fit right. As I am ready to walk out of the store Holly spots this gorgeous beaded evening gown that is running about 20% of the full retail price! WHAT, a $600 dress for about $100?? AND it fits perfectly to all my blessed curvy areas! Lol (Thank you Universe).

The next day, I get an email from a new client whom is struggling with saving his marriage from divorce and he would like to pay his program in cash. (Thank you Universe)

The day after I return, another new client is referred to me. She is a lovely executive whom is stuck in a toxic relationship and is always attracting the wrong men. She signed up for a 6 month program and paid in full. (Thank you Universe)

Moral of the story… Tell yourself to splurge a little, BELIEVE the Universe will bring to you what you need when you are living in joy instead of worry. When you are replenishing the economy and helping others to receive, you allow yourself to receive!

“Buy the shoes Leslie, more money will come!”

“Enjoy the delicious lunch Leslie, laugh with friends, savor the beautiful foods that I provide for you! I will help you be taken care of just like in Matthew 6:26 -Look at the birds of the air; they do not sow or reap or store away in barns, and yet your heavenly Father feeds them. Are you not much more valuable than they?”

When you see Birds, what do you think of?
