I love this quote:

The secret of making something work in your lives is, first of all, the deep desire to make it work; then the faith and belief that it can work; then to hold that clear definite vision in your consciousness and see it working out step by step, without one doubt or disbelief.

Eileen Caddy

Do you desire success, however you might define that?  Do you even KNOW what that looks like?  Do you believe that it can happen to you?  

Our inner thoughts really do make a difference on our ultimate success, so it's worth spending your time noticing; are you a believer or a disbeliever?

Self-doubt is a toxin that creeps into your dreams, your relationships, your career, your finances, and even your health. If you are often filled with self-doubt, telling yourself things like, "that's going to be too hard, they won't take notice, they will find a reason to say no, maybe I'll do it another way next time when I'm ready",  then you'll never be ready and you'll never manifest what you want.

The Gremlin of self-doubt IS something you can manage by noticing, by talking him or her away with positive thoughts, and by doing things in baby steps, consistently building on what you are confident in until your comfort zone is bigger and bigger.


I do an exercise with my clients called Hi-Dream, Low-Dream.  Self-doubt drives the low dream or worst case scenario. Flush it out.  What are all your fears. The high dream is your best case scenario; everything you dream or wish could happen.  If you examine what REALITY supports each of these dreams, you will usually see that there is a better case for the high dream coming true than the low dream.  Just examining it in a logical way can build your belief. 

Once you believe your dream is possible, your mind can create a path to make it happen and keep you motivated to see it through.  This is exactly how I lost 40 pounds.  I found a tool, educated myself, and most of all, I finally believed that I could do it- even at my age (55).  The same concepts can be applied to personal, business, or relationship goals.

Now go out there and dream big, flush out your Gremlins so they can't hide, and talk yourself into believing.  If you need help, I'm always here.

Monica came to the field of coaching and consulting after pursuing diverse jobs in teaching, business, and healthcare while also raising her family.  When Monica took a coaching class in 2006, it started a new chapter in her life.  Monica took her years of experience and passion for helping others and combined it with a career that allows her to empower others.  After training and certification in Life Coaching, Monica continued her studies in Organization and Relationship Systems Coaching, giving her the understanding, tools and experience to handle the sensitive, emotional, and deeply satisfying work of relationship building for personal and professional relationships. 

In 2011 Monica became certified as a coach and trainer with Peoplemap™ System of personality, leadership and conflict resolution assessments and tools.  This helps her clients understand themselves and others better, and facilitates team building and the ability to communicate effectively and skillfully with others.  Monica continues to learn new tools and concepts in order to empower her clients, including the work of David Emerald (The Power of TED), John Gottman, PhD, Wayne Dyer, and Byron Katie.

Monica works with individuals, couples, and teams as a coach, a small business consultant, and a facilitator of personal and professional growth.  Through one-on-one coaching, presentations, and workshops, Monica helps people create a master plan full of personalized goals, strategies, winning perspectives and the inner strength to take the challenging or more rewarding route, and to master the tough conversations. She has a passion to motivate her clients to see beyond the ordinary or expected, and to pursue all the possibilities without fear or doubt.  She acts as their accountability partner and works side-by-side as an equal partner, ready to coach and challenge her clients to excel and succeed.
