Guiding Principle, Quote or Mantra
What’s good about this?
We can choose to focus on the good or the bad. And whatever we focus on get’s bigger.
Lisa went through all sorts of experiences most would view as negative and when she turned it around and focused on what was right about these experiences things changed.
When You Tripped Up
In Lisa’s early years of her corporate career she was so focused on being the best that she literally caused herself physical harm because she didn’t know how to deal with the pressure.
She made her business relationship all about her and because of it she ended up in the hospital.
The “DUH” moment that changed your partnerships forever
In her career Lisa never took vacations because she wanted to be a high performer.
The only time she was willing to take off was if she was sick. She had a story in her head that when she was sick people were nice to you.
After several hospitalizations in a row almost every year, she realized there had to be a better way to take a vacation without ending up in a hospital.
Her “DUH” moment was that she could actually take “well” days (vacation) instead of sick days.
What does FINE mean to you?
FINE = F’d up, Insecure, Neurotic and Emotional
For many people FINE is comfortably miserable.
A lot of people have the hardest time taking care of themselves. And they need an excuse to be nice to themselves.
Lisa stopped being FINE 23 years ago and decided she would rather be FAB, which is Fabulous, Awesome and Beautiful.
Proudest moment in partnership
One of Lisa’s proudest moments was changing her career to what she is doing today.
This was never on her radar. She had been working with Tony Robbins for 15 years and one of her colleagues told her she was playing small. And Lisa resisted this.
One year later she got up one morning and walked downstairs and told her husband “I’m supposed to save lives. I don’t know what it looks like, but that’s what I’m supposed to do.”
And there has been no looking back since.
