This is a BIG week for me… and how to refocus your energy in times like these

This is a BIG week for me… and how to refocus your energy in times like these

In the past few days, my attention has been pulled towards and literally “sucked into” the current health concerns in the world. To the point where it has been hard NOT to think about it constantly or to stop checking articles about it, and focus my attention elsewhere.

I’m giving myself lots of grace around it. (and I invite you to do the same) The atmosphere around it is quite intense. 

I don’t regret it as I’m learning what I need to learn so that I can act from LOVE to be of support to family, friends, and our big Human family.

However, this week is a BIG week for me in terms of sharing my message out and stepping into BIGGER visibility. I’ll be Interviewed on Facebook Live and on a TV show; I just launched my new website.

So, I realized I needed to find a way to FOCUS back on what I’m up to in the world and pull my attention away from the trance we are getting lost into.

This afternoon, I made the decision to take a break from checking or discussing the virus, to focus on the preparation of the two interviews I have this week.

Two hours into preparing them and connecting with the core of the message I want to share and why the world needs to hear it, and I felt my JUICE and EXCITEMENT back again!!

I was connected back to my PURPOSE on this planet and why I’m so PSYCHED about it.

My inspiration was flowing and several times, I got myself saying out loud: “There is a BOOK here that needs to written!” “I’ve a BOOK that wants to come out of me.”

My message needs to be shared more broadly in the world to help more people.

So, what can you do today to move your attention away from the current situation, take a break from it, and connect with JOY and INSPIRATION again?

  • It starts with making a conscious decision to do it and to focus on something else that brings you joy, and let yourself dive into it.
  • …and to STOP checking news, articles, and such for a little while, even if it is just for an afternoon or a day.

Try it even just for a little while and let me know how that goes. 

With love,
Isabelle

P.S. I’m excited to announce I’ll be interviewed this Wednesday at 10 am PT on this awesome Facebook Live show. Watch the interview live at facebook.com/the3burns

I’ve the best boss ever! (Birthday pics inside)

I’ve the best boss ever! (Birthday pics inside)

I have the best boss ever! 😜

For my Birthday today, she rescheduled my clients’ sessions so that I could bask in the glory of my special day and treat myself. 

which means: 

  • Sleep in
  • Stay in my pj’s for how long as I want
  • Receive and bask in all the love from family and friends (video calls, texts, messages, Facebook messages)
  • Order a delicious French meal for lunch, delivered to my doorstep


This is an intense time of expansion in my business and in my life, and I’m grateful I got to rest and treat myself today. 

So that I can be rejuvenated to be of best service to my clients and to keep evolving and growing. 

I cannot serve well if my tank is empty. You cannot either. 

We serve and give the best when our tank is full. 

I love my boss and she loves me. 

Here she is! 😉 

Why am I sharing that with you?

So that you get reminded that treating yourself, self-care, and taking the time to receive are key elements of a fulfilled, happy, and successful career and life

especially in this ultra-productive and busy environment we live in.

Take the time to stop and take care of yourself. You deserve it. 

What are you going to do to treat yourself, or what are you already doing?

Let me know. I’d love to hear. Comment below.

With love,

Isabelle

Have you found them? (Two key questions you MUST ask yourself to do work you love)

Have you found them? (Two key questions you MUST ask yourself to do work you love)

This quote by Elizabeth Gilbert, in “Big Magic” says it all.

“This is one of the oldest and most generous tricks the universe plays on us human beings […]: The universe buries strange jewels deep within us all, and then stands back to see if we can find them.”

  • Have you found your jewels?
  • “Do you have the courage to bring forth the treasures that are hidden within you?”

These two questions are at the CORE of doing the WORK YOU ABSOLUTELY LOVE.

… and at the core of what I do with my clients.

  • I help them answer these two questions with a resounding YES.  
  • I help them find their hidden treasures and the courage to bring them worth into their work.

Because without that, you CANNOT do the work you absolutely love. 

How much you love your work is directly correlated with how well you can answer these questions with a YES.

So, let me ask you again: can you answer these questions with a big YES?

If yes, congrats! This is fabulous.

If no and you want to say yes to them so that you can do the work that gets you excited to get out of bed in the morning. it will be my joy and honor to help you. 

I’ve 2 spaces open for my  “Land the Career You Love 1:1 coaching program.” Apply here to schedule a time to chat with me.

I look forward to hearing from you
or from people you know (spouse, relative, friends, co-workers) who need help discovering the work they love in 2020!

Please share this blog with them!

Do you want to make a difference in the world and don’t think what you have to offer is valuable enough? or will really make a difference?

You may be stuck in this limiting belief that I share in the video and that I hear from many of my clients.

Watch the video to find out about it and what to do to get unstuck.

Comment below and share your thoughts with me. I’d love to hear!

I’m scared and I’m doing it anyway. Are you?

I’m scared and I’m doing it anyway. Are you?

I’m scared…

and I’m doing it anyway. 

I just submitted a proposal to speak at an International Conference!

Being a thought leader and speaking internationally, giving inspirational talks around the world is one of my long-time dreams.

Claiming it publicly is scary.

and I’m owning it. Whatever happens. 

It is TIME.

I’m feeling a strong nudge in that direction.

This is what my heart wants. 

and I’m listening to it, despite fears and doubts.

What about you? Are you listening to your inner impulses? to what is TRULY calling you?

or are you letting fears and doubts decide?

Look within.

NOW. 

It is time.

This morning, I did this. (NEW practice to start 2020 clear & empowered)

This morning, I did this. (NEW practice to start 2020 clear & empowered)

This morning, I did this.

I highly recommend it.

It is bringing me inner peace as I start 2020, a new year and a new decade of my life.

I recommend this practice if you want to start 2020 with more peace of mind, empowerment, and acceptance of where you are in your life.

It may sound confronting or heavy at first, but it is SO worth it. It really works!

Try it and let me know what you find out.

It is like when you look at your finances. It may be uncomfortable at first, and then it brings you peace of mind to know where you are at.

Here is what I did.

It took me about 2-3 hours of reflection/journaling.

I looked back at the 3 past decades of my life.
– 2010-2019
– 2000-2009
– 1990-1999

For each decade, on one piece of paper, I listed the main themes in terms of achievements and personal/professional transformation and lessons learned (work, life, personal development, travels, and any themes that are personal and meaningful to me and to my own journey. Eg. Living my life purpose, becoming bilingual, discovering my passions, doing what I love).

Then, I noticed the overarching theme for each decade and the evolution from one decade to the next.

As a result of it:

  • I feel great as I got in touch in touch with how much I and my life have positively transformed and evolved in 3 decades, despite challenges along the way.
  • I notice the evolution decade after decade, and how what I did in each decade prepared me for the next. I can see that there is a natural progression and unfoldment that I could not see at the time. Seeds planted in one decade beautifully blossomed into the next.
  • I feel so much clarity about the past three decades of my life and what the themes have been.
  • This clarity empowers me as I enter a new year and decade of my life.
  • I feel at peace and more accepting of where I am in my life, trusting that things are unfolding for my best and highest good.
  • I know that I don’t have to do it all alone: I can see a bigger plan and higher power at play in the unfoldment of my life purpose that is with me on this journey. I can surrender to it, instead of pushing, efforting, and complaining about things not going MY way.

I want that for you too.

It is SO worth it.

TRY IT.

To you shining your light BRIGHT in 2020, doing what you love!
