Do you know what really lights you up?
For each one of us, there are pursuits, projects and passions about which we feel excited and alive. Parenting, gardening, healing, public speaking, coaching, painting, sales, travel, music and so many more. The possibilities for joy are myriad.
The key to enjoying life and experiencing to its fullest is to figure out what lights you up and invest yourself fully—body, mind, heart and soul. Do it every day if you can. And if that’s not possible, spend some portion of every day dreaming about it and working toward it.
Once you commit fully to your passionate path, exciting new opportunities and possibilities will open up seemingly out of nowhere. People you don’t even know will offer you tools and connections—ones you knew were necessary and others you had no idea would prove essential. Your passionate commitment will attract opportunities that “magically” fall in your lap.
Once you start moving toward your dreams, you will discover a new zest flowing through you that comes from living on purpose. Your greater energy and empowerment will imbue every activity and endeavor with more meaning and delight.
If you already feel this way about your passionate approach to life, CONGRATULATIONS! Please keep it up—you’re a source of inspiration and encouragement for us all. We need your constructive model to help us find the courage to get started and stay the course.
What will YOU do to pursue your dreams TODAY and help others do so as well?

I am retired from 40+ years of helping individuals and teams build lives and organizations they love. One of the great joys of my retirement from professional practice is having greater bandwidth to donate my professional and creative talents to support and promote animal and social welfare charities.
During my 30 years as an organization transformation consultant, I served as a senior partner in four of the world’s largest, most prestigious global professional services firms. In 2005, I took a five-year sabbatical to find healing and peace because non-stop work had taken its toll.
My recovery from burnout led to finding my purpose guiding others on their journeys. As a board-certified coach, author, consultant, radio host, Reiki Master and EFT/tapping practitioner, I share hope, possibilities and empowerment with the world.
111419 DJW Sid CH Pet Corner Photo ShootI help clients achieve rapid, extraordinary, sustainable results by connecting who they are with what they do, a connection often lost through stress and the sheer busy-ness of daily life. Courageous self-awareness and unconditional self-love lead to honest choices based on priorities that nurture you and those around you on a journey to wholeness.
Decades in coaching, consulting, change management, organization development, human resources and mixed media artistic expression honed my business sense, professionalism, creativity, intuition, leadership and communication skills. The result? Practical tools that help you become more insightful, creative, committed, productive and fulfilled.
Even the most dedicated and hard-working individuals can shift from frustration to a sense of futility when their values, passion, work, and lives become disconnected. One of the problems with not taking care of our health is that the effects of ignoring it are often slow to show up. We continue to juggle family responsibilities, work and finances until we lose ourselves, waking up one day 50 pounds heavier in body and soul—no good to ourselves or anyone else.
I love working with people who are ready to take life-changing action to make their dreams a reality. At each moment, you have inside you all the wisdom you seek to choose your life and your way of showing up. Limiting thoughts, beliefs and feelings can block you from moving forward. An absence of love and concern for yourself can result in negative head talk that holds you back with discouraging messages about who you are and what you can do.
By listening and caring deeply, I guide you in connecting with your own inner wisdom. We identify the way you’d like to live. We determine what’s blocking you and release you from the hold those blocks have over you—unleashing the positive energy that will fuel you forward. Together we develop a plan to move you closer to your heart’s desire.
My books, blog, radio show and signature coaching programs help individuals and organizations harness the transformative energy of love to turn unexplored possibilities into fulfilling realities and step into their greatness. What’s love got to do with it? Everything! My book, Choose Your Energy: Change Your Life! (Hay House/ Balboa Press 2013) shares my story and the stories of 10 of my clients along with my signature Discovery Framework.
For fun, I love reading, sewing, knitting, yin yoga, afternoon tea, opera and movies. I live in Williamsburg, Virginia with my spouse, Wilson Abney, and the cat who runs our life, Maisy Jane.
