Do You Really Have to Work SOOO Hard??

There is a difference between working hard in that we put consistent effort into achieving our goals, and the deep rooted belief about working hard that never allows you to blend more of inspiration and divine guidance into the work we do.

“If you work just for money, you’ll never make it, but if you love what you’re doing and you always put the customer first, success will be yours.” — Ray Kroc

When you believe that you have to work hard you are always working while never allowing yourself pleasure, rest, and enjoying your accomplishments. Working hard implies struggle and sacrifice in a way that actually robs you of relationships and connections that fuel your soul so that you can focus your energies to succeed more aligned with love and inspiration.

It is really okay to enjoy the work you do the effort your put forth and the benefits you receive. However, many entrepreneurs and professionals associate hard work with things we don’t enjoy and something we have to do and this can actually keep you from ever realizing the fruit of why you are working so hard.

What if your hard work was pleasurable and not only served your soul but humanity too?

What would your life and your work be like if you worked hard without the negative underpinnings that can back fire on living a life that feels successful and joyful?

Our duty is to encourage every one in his struggle to live up to his own highest idea, and strive at the same time to make the ideal as near as possible to the Truth.

Swami Vivekananda

In this episode of #TappyBreak we will explore these questions to see what unfolds for you. You will discover if your hard work belief is serving you or actually stopping you in living your vision.

So take a quick break — a #TappyBreak — and release the negative programming around hard work, so that it serves your higher self and greater vision. Come tap with me with this video.

Tap away the layers covering your brilliant soul and let it shine like a diamond!

About #TappyBreak

Tappy Break was created to addresses the challenges of being an entrepreneur, blast through the blocks that keep you from trusting your inner knowing and moving forward with grace and ease.

Every week I will lead you through a quick 15 minute tapping session addressing such issues as procrastination, writing blocks, overwhelm, control, speaking phobia, family loyalty, money blocks, and many other challenging areas that may be keeping you still.  You have a voice, a mission and a passion.  Don’t let unconscious and limiting stories keep you from sharing it fully and receiving all the abundance that comes with it.

By combining a light tapping on acupressure points while talking, you can move past the emotional and unconscious blocks that are creating your current results. When you tap on an issue often the underlying or unconscious triggers will surface so that you can acknowledge, express and release the charge or the power it has so that you can move into expansion and grow that huge vision you are holding for yourself and the world.

Every Thursday I guide these quick tapping sessions live and you are welcome to join me.  Click here and let me know that you want to be included and you will receive an invitation with the link to join live or receive the replay.

Did this tapping sequence help you?  I’d love to know how!!

 

 

 

 

How to Stop Feeling Guilty for Being Successful

“Success is not final, failure is not fatal: it is the courage to continue that counts.”
~  Winston Churchill

“I can’t be more successful than my parents.”

“My parents failed miserably at being an entrepreneur and I’m afraid that I will fail too.”

“I will never be like my parents.”

These statements may not resonate with everyone, yet these are hidden beliefs I see all the time! You carry this energy in your lower chakras, and especially if you were raised with lots of guilt. Often we are not aware of the beliefs that are affecting your level of success and how they are impacting your life. So I am tapping on the theme of guilt again more specifically on your success in today’s episode of #TappyBreak.

A successful man is one who can lay a firm foundation with the bricks others have thrown at him.

David Brinkley

I invite you to take a quick break — a #TappyBreak — to lay a foundation for your version of success that is un-tethered from negative programming or beliefs.

Success is not a destination, but the road that you’re on. Being successful means that you’re working hard and walking your walk every day. You can only live your dream by working hard towards it. That’s living your dream.

Marlon Wayans

Come tap with me in this video.  Let’s crush the weight of guilt.

P.S.  – video glitch so first four minutes, you see the beautiful Ande Lyons – my wonderful Possibility Partners goddess, but you will still hear me preparing you for tapping….

Even though….I carry guilt around my success … I choose to honor these feelings and love and accept myself, anyway…

Letting Go of Guilt

“I’ve got a bad case of the 3:00 am guilts – you know, when you lie in bed awake and replay all those things you didn’t do right? Because, as we all know, nothing solves insomnia like a nice warm glass of regret, depression and self-loathing.”
~ DD Barant, Dying Bites

I hope this does not describe you! If it does, this #TappyBreak is for you.

“No work or love will flourish out of guilt, fear, or hollowness of heart, just as no valid plans for the future can be made by those who have no capacity for living now.” ~ Alan Watts

Today we will explore how you experience guilt – where you carry it in your body, how it affects your thoughts, and where it limits your forward motion. Guilt is one of the most destructive and restrictive emotions. It is often undeserved, yet at some level we justify our need to hold this guilt. For many it has been seeded and ingrained from very early childhood from parents, church and school. It’s a difficult thing to shake. Thank goodness there is tapping! You may have decided that you are done with guilt and you have most likely released tons of it. Yet, you will be surprised at how guilt has a way of burrowing deep inside your unconscious and remain hidden. Today we are going to shine the light on those spots.

“Guilt isn’t always a rational thing, Clio realized. Guilt is a weight that will crush you whether you deserve it or not.” Maureen Johnson, Girl at Sea

Experience the Power of Release

This week’s Tappy Hour Topic is the Power of Release

“You empower what you fight. You withdraw power from what you release.”
? Alan Cohen

Even if you are not aware that you are fighting something, it is has the power.  That is why tapping is so fantastic! It helps you release the power from things that lie hidden or dormant in your subconscious.

“Why let something build up inside of you only to hurt you more? Release the truth, release the feeling.”
? Heather Romiti Health Wellness Coach Motivational Speaker

Another thing I love about tapping is that is a safe, non-invasive way for you speak the negative thoughts and feelings that are real for you and there whether you try to ignore them or not.  Tap and say what you feel, and feel the release.  Then fill up with all the positive, intentional, visions and words.
“She released her grievances like handfuls of birdseed: They are there, and they are gone.”
? Gillian Flynn, Gone Girl

We hold onto many things – emotions, stories, beliefs, perceptions, judgments, experiences, habits, pain, and patterns – to name a few.  We are aware of many of these and yet there are several that are hidden deep in your subconscious.  Tapping allows you to release what you know you are ready to let go of, and that which you don’t.  Although the part of you that is wise and all-knowing does know, and when we tap that truth is revealed and released.

Tap with me on this video!

In today’s episode, I will guide to identify where you are holding on.  It might be pain in an area of your body.  Perhaps it is a change that you are resisting. May it is a habit that you don’t want to keep repeating.  We will tap on what you know you want to release AND what your inner wisdom knows you are ready to send on its way.

Dwell in Contentment

This week’s Tappy Hour Topic is CONTENTMENT

“It isn’t what you have or who you are or where you are or what you are doing that makes you happy or unhappy. It is what you think about It.”
? Dale Carnegie, How to Win Friends and Influence People

Are you one of the busy people who just moves from one task to the next, one goacontentmentl to the next, always looking ahead at what’s next ~ usually looking and wanting MORE, MORE, MORE.  Yet forgetting to stop for a moment, to acknowledge you, where you are and what you have accomplished. You are the only one who can permit yourself to see your success. Too often I find that no matter how much you achieve, get done or succeed – it is never enough.

I invite you to take a break — a #TappyBreak  — to focus on the here and now and what is joyful, fulfilling, satisfying and accomplished.  Be here and be with your success.  Stop pushing and striving for just a moment and feel the gratitude of all the pleasure, abundance, and love that is here in your life and in your business now.  Savor what you have already created.

“Be thankful for what you have; you’ll end up having more. If you concentrate on what you don’t have, you will never, ever have enough”
~ Oprah Winfrey

It is wonderful to have goals, dreams and visions, manifesting them into reality.  Yet, the sad truth is that not many actually take time to enjoy the manifestations.  There is a difference between feeling contented and enjoying the contentment before moving on and never pushing yourself to aim higher, go deeper, stretch a little more. If you acknowledge the success now, you will experience more.  When you push yourself to grow and stretch from a place of love and being aligned, then your success is so much sweeter than when coming from fear, other people’s agendas, and needing to prove yourself.

“Because one believes in oneself, one doesn’t try to convince others. Because one is content with oneself, one doesn’t need others’ approval. Because one accepts oneself, the whole world accepts him or her.”
? Lao Tzu

TAP WITH ME  IN THIS VIDEO to embrace contentment as you continue to grow your business and your life, polishing the diamond of your soul!

The Gift of Being Present

This week’s #TappyBreak Topic is  — Get Present in Your LIfe, In Your Business, In the Moment!

True happiness is… to enjoy the present, without anxious dependence upon the future.
Lucius Annaeus Seneca

You must live in the present, launch yourself on every wave, find your eternity in each moment. ~ Henry David Thoreau

Take a quick break in your day and TAP with me ! Let’s clear the STUFF that interferes with you showing up fully alive and present in each moment of your life and business.

Life is too short and precious to embrace and not be completely and fully present in each moment.  So many factors contribute to the interruption of your full attention, and yet this is shortchanging you and your results.  Let’s change that up, shall we?  You deserve more! Give yourself and the world the gift of your presence.  xoxoox

 

Every week I am live tapping and you can join me. It’s a quick 15 minute tapping session. You can tap live with me virtually, watch the live stream and tap, or watch at your convenience.

Tapping for Entrepreneurs on Procrastination

Does either of these quotes describe your approach to getting things done?  If so, today’s #TappyHour is for you!  Let’s explore why exactly procrastination serves you and where it costs you.

“If it weren’t for the last minute, nothing would get done.”
? Rita Mae Brown

“You can’t just turn on creativity like a faucet. You have to be in the right mood.   What mood is that?   Last-minute panic.”
? Bill Watterson

Lack of skill, interest, or motivation contributes to procrastination.  Other culprits are fear of failure and fear of success. Rebellion and resistance to having to do something you don’t want to do is another source to putting off getting important things done. Oddly enough the need to be perfect is another cause for procrastination. Lack of mental or physical energy are factors, too. Feeling overwhelmed and not knowing where to begin will stop many in their tracks.

Whatever your reasons or whatever is contributing to your cycle of consistently putting things off; it’s often not a comfortable feeling.  You may find yourself beating yourself up over and over again for putting things off and waiting until the last minute, or worse not doing it at all.  There is a way to handle procrastination in a healthy, positive way.  With tapping, you can give voice to the frustration you feel around procrastination, and discover what’s underneath it all and use that information to either break free from your habitual cycle or embrace it so that it works for you.

This is a quick tapping session to reboot your procrastination – tap NOW and see what happens!

Tappy Hour – Don’t Let Writing Get In Your Way

As entrepreneurs who wear many hats, writing articles, marketing copy, blog posts and newsletter scan stop you in your tracks.  You sit in front of your computer and suddenly your creativity dries up and almost anything seems more enjoyable in that moment.  I hear this over and over again. So let’s get off that roller coaster and ease into our writing with clarity, inspiration, and consistency.  Tapping is one of the best ways I know to change that cycle.  Join me in the green room – we will hide the film strip so you are not visible – or watch live or after at your convenience  to tap along with Cheri to clear the blocks that are undermining your writing genius.

Tappy Hour – Managing All the Choices

Being an entrepreneur is so cool!  It’s also risky, overwhelming, unnerving, and exhilarating!  However, I’d be under a rock, if I also did not acknowledge that being an entrepreneur is wrought with challenges.  So, let’s burst the energy bubble of doubt, fear, worry, overwhelm, craziness and any other challenge that prevents your from playing full on out in your business in alignment with your values and your views of success.

  • I honor this brave choice that I have made as an entrepreneur.

Using Intuition to Grow Your Business

Although we have been conditioned and taught to use our heads, think, be logical, work hard and struggle, I believe that is only half of the recipe for success.  We all come equipped with a spirit and inner knowing,  sourced guidance, called intuition.  Yet, most were taught to ignore this and have lost the pulse to this half of the equation for a successful life and business.  In this video Amy and I talk about how being assertive is an important quality for a successful business AND  so is cultivating and using your intuition to make business decisions. We also explain how it helped us be better mothers also.

If you haven’t already downloaded your free meditation for grounding, clearing and protecting your energy to enhance your intuitive capacity, you can grab it here.

If you are interested in cultivating your intuition and learn how it can expand your success, deepen your inner wisdom, peace and confidence,  visit us here.

What’s Stopping You? Tips to Stop Resisting

Fitness instructors have shared with me that many of their clients are reluctant to commit to a fitness routine.  Underlying their resistance is often fear – who will they be if they lose weight or feel healthier and stronger.  There are so many objections that come up and two of the most common are I am too busy and there is not enough time in the day, So today we are going to bust those fears and empower you to get moving and losing – fear, weight, doubt, old stories and fully express your new found strength.  Whatever change you are wanting to incorporate into your life, this tapping sequence will help you say, “yes” and mean it.

Do You Realize How Amazing You Are?!

One of the most difficult things to do I have discovered is to love and accept ourselves.  I had no idea that was at the root cause of so many of my challenges throughout my life.  I learned to act confidently, but deep down I was filled with loathing, self-judgment, and never feeling like I was enough.

Why am I telling you this?  Because I have a feeling there is a part of you that feels this way too, and I know that you are amazing just like I am.

You see, once you really accept that part of yourself, your lives opens up to love, joy, happiness, health and abundance.  I know because as I began to heal my inner pain, my life opened up in ways I could never have dreamed.  I stopped letting pain and illness be my story.  I no longer allowed people to treat me disrespectfully.  I learned to set boundaries and to honor them, so that others would, too.  I stopped repeating family history when it came to lack of financial success.

Relationships that were important to me began to flourish with my attention and love.  I began to release the need to be in relationships that were not healthy. I learned how to forgive, others, and eventually myself.  I stopped giving my power away to everyone else, and begin to embrace my inner rebel instead of hating her.  I created a business that is rewarding on so many levels.  I raised the level on my happiness, love, success, and prosperity ceilings.

I have been willing to do the deep inner work that is necessary to change my life, and the rewards have been bountiful!

Everything starts from within.

So if inside you are not loving, truly loving who you are, your experiences, your pain, your joy – then the outside results will match up to that.  You are amazing and deserve so much more!  I have helped hundreds of women access their inner wisdom where the keys to their freedom lie, and I would like to help you.  You have to believe that you are worth it; you have to believe that you are important enough to receive support, just like I did and continue to do, to reach your highest potential.

For the longest time, I insisted on doing it myself.  I thought there was something wrong with me if I needed help.  Then I realized that we are not meant to struggle.  We are not meant to be isolated.  It is not weak to ask for help.  It is powerful to be collaborative and work together on common visions.  I am so grateful to my mentors, coaches, teachers, healers, friends, and family who saw my potential, held that space for me and helped me become a better version of myself.  I am blessed to continue to have this support.

Do you have that kind of support in your life?  If not, please know there are many ways to receive this support.  If you have a vision of greatness for yourself, then I am here to guide, love, and support you.

If you are wondering if we are a good fit, please watch this video.  Ed Doris, owner of Good Karma Café and the host of “You Are Amazing” which broadcasts on public television in Exeter, NH, interviewed me this week.  He is passionate about making a difference in people’s live and giving back to the world in gratitude for all the love, support, and kindness that has come his way.

He brought tears to my eyes when he introduced me.  He completely caught me off guard when he made a most generous offer to the audience.  You have to watch the video to find out what that it is.  Will you be one of the five who receives his generosity?  If you are seriously wanting to up-level your life and your business, move beyond challenges and blocks, and would love support and guidance, then please take advantage of Ed’s generous offer to cover the cost of a consultation with me.  I hope to speak with you soon!

With love,

Cheri

How to Safely Vent and Tap When Someone Annoys You

It is not always easy to take the high road when someone hurts or upsets you.  A natural reaction is to lash back.  My choice is to come from a loving space, but often I find I need to allow myself to feel what I am really feeling – hurt, upset, disappointed, angry, resentful – and then I can feel more peaceful.  However, just venting alone does not always do the trick.  It’s a temporary fix.  Watch this video, and tap with Amy and Cheri to vent your frustrations towards a person who annoys you, and then you can really embrace the love. It is far more empowering to be honest with yourself, acknowledge and release the negative energy, so that you can be your best self!

Develop a Practice for Ease and Flow in Life and Work

You will experience more ease and flow in your life and business when you take the time to center yourself and tune into spirit and create quiet spaces of time for you.
