Opportunity knocks on your door every day. If you take too long to answer the door, Opportunity, like any visitor, will move on to a more hospitable host.
Everything in life has a natural rhythm—from the timing of good comedy to the sleep cycles of a healthy body. This rhythm is everywhere and in everything. When you’re relaxed, engaged and in step with it, you find yourself living in what I call “flow.” Your life becomes a fluid journey to wholeness grounded in who you are being, not what you are doing. Every breath, thought, word, and act—your very presence—fosters a generous, effortless, gracious life of flow filled with faith, hope, prosperity, peace, and joy.
When you are aligned with the natural rhythm of life, you know you have everything to manifest the life you dream of. Your prosperity is firmly grounded in trusting your energy, creativity and discernment regarding what to do, why, when, how, how much, with and for whom. Procrastination pulls you out of alignment with the natural rhythm of life and perfectionism is the single greatest cause. Perfectionism is all about fueling yourself with the toxic cocktail of FEAR. Fear throws you off-balance and out of rhythm. Fear keeps warning that you aren’t smart enough, fast enough or rich enough—YOU JUST ARE NOT ENOUGH. Like a deer in the headlights, you freeze and wait to get run down.
The next time you find yourself procrastinating, stop, take one deep breath, relax your body and say the word “YES” aloud. Breathe again, relax, say “YES.” Repeat this until you become fully present and calm.
Then try repeating these affirmations until you feel yourself starting to believe them with every fiber of your being—physically, mentally, emotionally and spiritually.
- I do not rush. I am enough. I discern, focus and follow through. The Universe works wonders through me.
- My Source is excellent, limitless and reliable. No external force can block my highest good. Universal abundance flows to and through me.
From this centered, empowered mindset, discern your next step—just one baby step—focus and follow through. Express gratitude, celebrate and repeat. By repeating this simple three-step process every moment of every day, you will baby step your way to greatness with perfect timing, rhythm and grace.
What fear might you release TODAY to help you take the next baby step toward the life you dream of living?

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.
