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” …

The Ripple Effect

Posted on by Tracy in Alaska, Inspiration, life, Love | No Comments

“Be the change you wish to see in the world.” –Ghandi As I was getting twisted up about the state of the nation and watching all the mean, angry, fear-driven posts on social media from friends and colleagues, I had an epiphany: I can choose to be the change. So last week, I practiced coming from a place of love… creating the Ripple Effect. Even when I felt angry and scared, I practiced love. Granted, I am no saint and this task was not easy. I practiced. It all started with dropping my SUV off at the Ford dealer in town.  I have had the worst experience there the last two times, so I went into the customer service center with a big ol’ chip on my shoulder. But from somewhere deep within my soul, I remembered I was going to practice love.  Oh, how I wanted to go the …

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 …

How I Became Successful

Posted on by Tracy in business, entrepreneur, Facebook, focus, goals, linkedin, Social Community, spiritual experience, Twitter, Uncategorized | No Comments

“Strive not to be a success, but rather to be of value.” –Albert Einstein What does success mean to you?  To me success is following my heart.  In doing so, I have been able to create a heart centered business.  When I follow my heart, I am able to be useful to others.  When I am of use to others all sorts of opportunities become available (including money).  If I continually think about what is in it for me and how can I get MORE, business and life become a struggle. About eight years ago, I sold a mobile dog grooming business that I had started in Anchorage, AK. My husband and I had hit a little bump in the road of life and I got busy looking for a new career. My background was marketing and sales. My heart and soul fought what I was doing entering a real estate career… and yet… …

Move & Improve !

Posted on by Tracy in Challenge, exercise, goals, life, lifestyle, move, Technology, Uncategorized, Verizon | No Comments

The UP System has me movin’, Movin’, movin’!  I tend to be on the competitive side, so this is perfect for me as I can compete with myself. The system fits around your lifestyle. The bottom line is the more you move, the more calories you burn, and the better your mental state is. In just 4 days of wearing this little gadget, I am moving my body more, sleeping more, eating better, and laughing more. See I dance around the house now to increase my steps. Sometimes the dogs dance with me, sometimes the hubster dances with me. Mostly we laugh at me dancing around trying to get more steps in before bedtime. You can share accomplishments with friends and challenge each other if you choose. I have enough trouble challenging myself as I set my goals a bit high each day.

The Illusional Truth of Entrepreneurship

Posted on by Tracy in authentic, business, Challenge, Embrace, entrepreneur, focus, goals, Gratitude, Grow, growth, life, Perception, struggle, Success, Uncategorized | No Comments

  There is so much that goes into starting and running a successful business.  I get emails all the time from folks asking for advice on how to start their own biz. I believe anyone can be a biz owner; however, one must realize ALL that is involved. I recently heard from someone who said she wanted to do what I do and take a step back, allowing her to put in less work hours per day. I reread the email to my husband and he said, “You must be making it look too easy.” See, the reality is hours and hours and then more hours go into the life of a biz owner. (One that is enriched and paying their bills, that is.) I love to hike, so, some days, I try to arrange my schedule and work in the evenings. Because my evenings are not filled with any hobbies …

Living Authentically Month 2

Posted on by Tracy in authentic, Coaching, communicate, Embrace, Facebook, goals, Gratitude, Grow, growth, Love, miracles, struggle, Success | 5 Comments

On April 1st, I made my Authentic Announcement taking my very own leap of faith. Although real estate had been good to me, I felt my truth calling me to help the business owner or entrepreneur find his or her own Authentic truth. Even two months ago, I had no idea that this would be my path.

It is all our Perception!

Posted on by Tracy in authentic, Breakdown, Challenge, Embrace, Grow, Love, miracles, Perception | No Comments

    Breakdown!!!   Perception is an odd thing.  Perception creates an illusion of what we think or feel to be real.  Sometimes I wonder if I truly grew up in the same home my brothers did, as my perception of certain situations are often totally different than their’s.  Perception of ‘others’ can be tricky.  Often, we (I) see ‘successful’ people and wonder how do they do all that they do.  How can they be so upbeat all the time? How did they make their millions so effortlessly (or so it seems)?  Can they really be that amazing all the time?  How do they remain so calm and in control?  The truth is, we are all human beings.  We ALL have struggles and challenges.  It is how we want the world to perceive these struggles and challenges.  Recently, I had a breakdown.  I was dealing with a difficult real estate …
