Use the “Step Into Your Moxie” Way to Amplify Your Voice, Visibility and Influence

AlexiaVernon_TomMarcoux

Tom Marcoux holds Alexia Vernon ‘s book “Step Into Your Moxie”

Want to amplify your voice, visibility and influence in the world? Here’s an essential book, Step into Your Moxie by Alexia Vernon.

This book is written directly to women, and as the Executive Coach of a significant number of women-clients, I celebrate the value that is abundantly found in this book.

On page 60, Alexia emphasizes that we need to pay attention to unnecessary words of “I think” “I feel” “I believe” “I mean” statements. She writes, “When we [use those statements], we send the message what I’m saying is untested. I might be wrong. And whether or not I am, don’t take what I’m saying too seriously. I’m swimming in self-doubt.”

On page 88, Alexia emphasizes the importance of identifying your desired destination. She writes, “With my destination clear, I boldly began to work backward from my dreamy vision and identify the major steps I needed to take to translate it into a reality.”

I deeply appreciate that Alexia’s book is an easy and enjoyable read. She emphasizes important realities that we can prepare ourselves for. On page 173, she writes “Boundaries empower you to wake up each day clear on where you are headed. They shape how you make decisions and what you say to yourself and others, so you can stay in your lane rather than merge into everyone else’s.”

This book is a guide to living at your best. On page 200, Alexia shares, ”When you unapologetically own that you cannot and therefore won’t attempt to power through difficult times alone, you open yourself up to receive support–something that is hard for a lot of women to do (including the one who is typing this out for you)..”

Now is your time. When you want to express yourself well and power your way up to a life of more success and happiness, you want to get this book, Step into Your Moxie.

The Power of Fearless vs. Self-Doubt – Make Better Decisions for More Success

TomMartialArts

Tom Marcoux in a scene filmed on a Hollywood street.

“It’s so hard to decide in this situation,” my client, Jennifer, said.

“What’s holding you back?” I asked.

“I think … it’s probably self-doubt. Or fear,” she said.

“Self-doubt and fear are really connected. Would you like to be fearless?”

“Is that possible?” she asked.

I’ve given a lot of thought to the idea of “fearless.” For many of us, it’s not about eliminating fear. It’s about quieting down fear so it’s just a member of the committee, and your true self is running the show.

How to Get People to Trust You and Create Real Success

ConvinceInvestorAnnounce“Can you help me connect with appropriate investors?” a young startup company leader, Murray, asked me.

To be helpful, I asked him a couple of relevant questions to vet him–so I could be sure that he is ready and appropriate for me to connect with others.

He choked.

It’s understandable. It takes exposure to and rehearsing great ways to connect with new people. You need to eliminate the “red flags” that destroy trust–even when you’ve just met someone in the first few minutes.

Years ago, I choked when I did not have the coaching, rehearsal and preparation to interact effectively when meeting investors for the first time.

Secrets to Finding Fabulous Love after 50

Find Fabulous Love6Are you looking for love after 50, and are you stuck?

Bestselling Author and Transformation-that-Sticks Coach Junie Moon has a truly refreshing outlook on this potentially challenging time in a woman’s life.

I had the chance to interview Junie Moon and ask her some valuable questions so that we can finally know the secret on how to break through the glass ceiling of love after 50.

Tom: What’s the  #1 most important ingredient to experiencing love after 50? So many feel it’s a losing battle and give up…

Junie Moon: If someone wants to break through the glass ceiling of love over 50 and have a healthy kind of love, they must tap into their unconscious beliefs and heal the past. It’s paramount to inviting new love in and not making the same “mistakes.” Unless you access your unconscious mind and transform the programming you’ve picked up along the way, you’re going to stay in a painful holding pattern. Such a pattern includes feeling hopeless. It can get worse: You might recreate the same dysfunctional relationship you swore you’d never have again.

Tom: I hear you. So, you help women release themselves from unconscious patterns?

Junie Moon: Yes. This process helps women heal the past and shift their belief system. Then, they stop the self-sabotage and begin attracting a better partner. They stop dating the “same person” and experience love that is authentic, fulfilling and long-lasting. They also feel empowered and more confident to call in new love.

Tom: So why do you think people get so stuck and have all this self-sabotage?

Junie Moon: They’ve accumulated so much data in all their years of life. By the time people get to the second half, they have seen what doesn’t work in relationships and they’ve also experienced a ton of pain. That has them very cautious because they don’t want to get hurt again.

Tom: I’m getting a clear picture. How do you help women?

Junie Moon: I help women make a shift. They experience real transformational work. Then they truly now believe they are worthy of love. And love appears so much faster. Also, if they’re less scared about getting back out there, there are more opportunities.

Tom: This all sounds good. What makes the real difference? Some people think they’re healing, but they still don’t put themselves back out there.

Junie Moon: With my clients, and those who attend my workshops, I help them to start flying the airplane while they build it!

Tom: Tell me more about this airplane metaphor.

Junie Moon: People like to stay in their comfort zone.  So I tell people to stretch their comfort zone by adding new tools. Get back out there while you heal inside. Fly the plane as you build it. As they become aware of past patterns of self-sabotage and learn how to speak their truth, they’re moving forward. They develop healthy boundaries and feel safer. Now, they begin to see with fresh eyes. This allows deeper connection with new ways of communicating, authentically. This opens them up to Next Level Love.

Tom: So how do people learn how to fly their airplane and not crash while learning?

Junie Moon: Just like anything new: If they haven’t flown an airplane, they need instructions. They need practice and support. That’s where having a co-pilot comes in. So, this is better than just reading a book. When I’m working with a client, I am her co-pilot, and I am her coach. So she can fly her plane and be safe while she learns how to expand her comfort zone and invite love in.  It’s amazing what happens.

Tom: How can people get started with you?

Junie Moon: The easiest way to get started is to join my Facebook group “Find Fabulous Love After 50.”  ( https://www.facebook.com/groups/1962269713813419/). Some women feel it intuitively: Now is the time to take back their life and  get a coach to hold their hand as they embrace this new exciting chapter head on.  Amazing things happen for them. Those women engage me as a coach immediately and they start flying that gorgeous plane!

Tom: Thanks for bringing all this important information to light.

Junie Moon: Thanks for this opportunity to share my work. For more on Junie Moon’s work – visit WomenReclaimYourLife.com

Overcome the #1 Lie Holding Introverts Back from Massive Success

 

“Why can’t I go forward faster?” my friend, Stephanie, asked.

“Let’s get specific. What’s bothering you at the moment?” I asked.

“I got to go to this business dinner, and I feel tired just even imagining that I might attend,” she said.

As an introvert myself and in conversation with other introverts, I’ve noticed that the Big Lie about introverts is that introverts are shy. That’s not true. Shy is a set of behaviors. When I was younger, I did certain behaviors that caused other people (and me) to consider that I was shy.

Then, with mentors and training I got past those “shy behaviors.” However, I remain an introvert. Being an introvert is about one’s personal energy. With audiences I say, “An extrovert has a giant pizza pie of energy. The introvert has a pecan pie. As a comparison, someone with clinical depression has a dinner mint of energy.”

Another way to look at the lie about introverts is: It’s not true about introverts having trouble in conversations. Introverts can be some of the best conversationalists because we listen well. We think things through. And, we don’t interrupt as much as some extroverts do.

The important truth about being an introvert is about a limit on your personal energy. You need to be strategic about how you use your energy. When I was younger, I was so angry with myself for not attending every networking event and not saying yes to every opportunity to give a speech.

Then I learned the Secret for an introvert: Become really good at the few networking events you attend and the few client conversations you have. Be great in the few speeches you give to groups of prospective clients. (This is vital because introvert’s pay out energy when they are in a group of people.)

“What is a big mistake that people make related to setting a goal?” my friend, Steve, asked.

“They fail to think it through and then they suffer as one goal acts like a steamroller that destroys their life,” I replied.

It’s crucial to realize that one goal that sounds good may create such destruction that you might spend years trying to recover.

I read 82 books last year to keep updated about current research and case histories. One case history involved a man who decided to become a millionaire before the age of 42. He achieved his goal, but he was a millionaire who suffered a divorce*, and his children won’t talk to him. Seeing that case history inspired a thought in my mind: Don’t let a goal kill your life.

* I realize that some relationships simply end. However, to have a truly unhealthy relationship with your children sounds deeply painful for all involved.

To make sure we create sustainable success and happiness, we’ll use the M.A.P. Process:

M – measure
A – align
P – persist with a plan

  1. Measure

It’s vital to measure your progress, but even more important it’s crucial to choose a goal that will not disrupt your entire life.

I’ll give you an example. Currently. I am writing a third novel in a series, and my goal is to write 2,000 words a day. I use a dictation device so it’s not as hard as it would be if I was typing.

However, if I was overly ambitious or doing what I call “overstretch,” I might set a goal of 4,000 words a day. This would disrupt my other business activities. Business owners know that they need to devote enough time to lead generation and follow-up each day. In this way, you make sure that you have a have an appropriate amount of clients or customers at any given moment. You need to plant seeds to have future blossoms.

So, my choosing 2,000 words a day is appropriate and not an “overstretch.”

Measure your progress. In my book, Power Time Management, I wrote: Keep score and achieve more.

 

  1. Align

Earlier in this article, I mentioned the man who chose to devote full strength to becoming a millionaire by the age of 42, but he neglected the necessary actions to be available and present for his wife and children.

His goal of being a millionaire by the age of 42 and working in an obsessive manner reveals that he was not aligned with having a healthy, happy, fulfilling life.

Ask yourself:

  • Have I set a goal that is not realistic in terms of what else I want to be present in my life?
  • Will this goal provide me a breadth of good experiences so that I feel that I’ve had a fulfilling life?

 

  1. Persist with a plan

“In preparing for battle I have always found that plans are useless, but planning is indispensable.” – Dwight D. Eisenhower

An effective plan includes suitable breaks and days off, and times for renewing yourself in the comfort of family and in the comfort of your alone-time. (In recent research, breaks are noted as vital so one avoids terrible mistakes. Such breaks are called “Vigilance Breaks.”)

The most significant projects require a consistent devoting of energy and attention over a long period of time. So, your plan needs multiple layers.

When I work with clients to develop a list of goals, I invite them to include “Green Goals.” Think of evergreen trees. The goals include actions like daily quiet time (or prayer time), exercise, family time, solo time, so my clients stay strong.

No matter what your schedule or plan has in it, some tough surprises are coming. With a plan that helps you stay strong, you’ll be able to have a reserve of energy and good health so that you’re able to withstand the storms of life.

In summary, be sure to think it through (and to feel it through)—as you develop a plan so that a goal can support the best in you and help you create your best life.

Warmly,
Tom
