Mental Toughness Biz Vizion with Alaska Tracy Podcast Episode #9 Mental Toughness or an easier softer way is this week’s topic. Life is funny. I can be moving along on life’s balance beam and BAM! My head starts chattering! I would love to tell you it always happens after a major life event, but that is not the case. Remember to read to the end and download your free offering for the week! This last time was right after a Spiritual Retreat! You would think that one’s head would be rested, relaxed, rejuvenated or something to that effect… I had the opposite! My head was riddled with fear, thoughts of what the heck I am doing and the list went on! What does one do when feelings seep into our minds wanting to take over our bodies and keep us stuck in a state paralysis? I remember hearing for the first time, “feelings are not facts” …

Combating Head Chatter

Posted on by Tracy in Anchorage, business, Challenge, entrepreneur, lifestyle, Motivational tools from Alaska Tracy's tool kit~, struggle, Success | No Comments

Working alone as an entrepreneur or business owner can be challenging.  Often times it’s the ‘head chatter’ that makes for the challenge. How do you combat your ‘head chatter’? Here are several tools that have worked and continue to work for me: 1: Take a Personality Test.  Doing this can give you some insight into how to best complement your personality type so that you can keep your ‘head’ in check. Introverts and Extroverts need different activities to get inspired or motivated and knowing which type of personality you are is a fantastic place to start!  I spent years doing things that didn’t suit my personality type and was often exhausted and had body ailments that could have been avoided. 2. Meditation.  Meditation is all about quieting the mind – not stopping the mind, but slowing it down. Learning to slow down and listen to what our bodies and our hearts are telling us will allow us to give ourselves …

3 Steps To Turn Negatives Into Positives

Posted on by Tracy in Motivational tools from Alaska Tracy's tool kit~, Uncategorized | No Comments

My head is constantly filled with chatter telling me things like, “you are not good enough,” and words such as, “cannot,” “should have,” “why did you,” “what are you,”…the list goes on and on! Here are three tools that have been passed on to me to inspire my soul and turn the chatter down and into positive reinforcing thoughts.

What’s a true joy in my life? I get to help others that are looking to start a business. In the past month, I have been approached by folks right out of college with no clue how to go about creating a successful business. For a second, it confused me. I have a two-year degree, and I suppose I just assumed a four-year degree would provide insight on how to create and run a business. So, why not spread my knowledge, you wonder? Well, it has sparked my interest to pursue teaching at universities. Teaching the “how-to’s” and the “ins-and-outs” of being an entrepreneur. These people have reminded me of what I knew back when I started my first business in 2001. I have been reminded of the challenges, heart aches and all the successes. This will be the first entrepreneurial blog in a series, and now it’s time for me to ask you some questions. Below are four questions you must …

Alaska Tracy ~ ‘Raw’

Posted on by Tracy in Facebook, Facebook Tools, google+, Gratitude, Grow, linkedin, Motivational tools from Alaska Tracy's tool kit~, Social Community | No Comments

How do you define ‘Authentic’ in your life?  Do you share on Social Media Platforms authentically? I find that I want to attract and work with like minded people.  I keep certain things off Social Media.  My opinions on Politics, Religion, and finances as well as if I am having a down right crappy day.  The reason I do this, is once I share my ‘opinion’ to the world, it separates me.  I share my personal opinions with my husband and a spiritual advisor and a few of my closest friends.  When having a bad day, I have learned to do the opposite (that does not mean I am always successful).  By doing this, I find I am not growing my feelings. So, how do you share with the world? Is is working for you in creating a life that you enjoy living each and every day? Alaska Tracy ~ …

Sickness=Gratitude

Posted on by Tracy in family, Gratitude, Grow, Love, Motivational tools from Alaska Tracy's tool kit~, Social Community, Social Media Tribe | No Comments

I have had the opportunity to be sick over the Thanksgiving holiday weekend.  I say opportunity because it truly was a gift to slow down and rest which caused much reflection of life as I perceive it. I have had a few  Ephiphanies !  I hope these will inspire you to move forward when you are down and out or having an ‘off’ day. *  When down & out it is more crucial to reach out to other’s and ask how they may be doing (this is the hardest one for me). * Pray, pray, pray for ‘His (or Her, The Universe, your Higher Power) Will to be done’…..NOT yours (not mine). *Practice meditation – be still and listen to the voice deep with in…. *Think of those less fortunate.  I have two friends with Cancer and would think of a light of energy and love surrounding them.  This lead me to be filled …

Running up the Hills of LIFE

Posted on by Tracy in Coaching, Motivational tools from Alaska Tracy's tool kit~, Uncategorized | No Comments

Running = Inspiration     I have been a runner (jogger) for over 20 something years.  I have taken many breaks from it and have had a love/hate relationship with it.  I always miss it when I am away from it. Sometimes I think-I am done with running, however, I always go back to it. When I started running years ago, it was to loose weight.  I had a SICK food illness.  I used running as a form of torchure to my body and myself.  I would eat and eat and eat sugary stuff and go run 10+ miles and get sick.  I did loose weight.  I was pretty sick too. I ran my 1st marathon (26.1 miles) when I was 30 for a little gal that had Leukemia.  I joined the Leukemia Team in Training.  It was an amazing incredible event filled with unlimited support.  I had moved from …

Monday, Motivation & Honesty I have experienced feelings of being ‘not good enough‘ lately.  Yes me, the Motivational, Social Media Coach! I think it is good for me to share the good and the bad about life.  As we all know, life has it’s ups and downs.  I believe it to be all my perception! So…how do I stop listening to the ‘head chatter‘?  The chatter often tells me things that are not true.  Some times my heart listens to the chatter.  That is a scary place for me.  The chatter says things like, you will never amount to anything, you are a financial nightmare, you will never be good enough.  WOW! Pretty harsh chatter that goes on in my head.  The chatter keeps me up at night.  The chatter stops me from pursuing dreams and goals.  The chatter pushes me far away from the ones I love.  The chatter …
