Distracted Dionne (You answered mostly A’s on the Quiz.)

Quiet as kept, Dionne is a genius. She’s filled with passion and a zesty curiosity for life. She's a creative at heart, and bursting with ambition. Her broad array of interests drive her creative spirit but can also be her Achilles heel. She gets easily lost in her multiple projects and often feels too distracted by the busyness of her life to focus on how to strategically advance her career or build the business of her dreams.

Even though she quickly moved up the traditional ladder of "success,” Dionne struggles. Distracted by the noise of "shoulds" and plagued by a daunting sense of overwhelm, anxiety clouds her ability to get clear on what she really wants for her career or business––and ultimately her life as a whole.

When it comes to accomplishing her biggest, boldest goals, she's not sure where to start. Despite her smarts and repeated attempts at time-management, she’s caught in a loop of "getting ready to get ready to take action" on the life that she knows she wants to live but seems to be missing out on. She knows there’s so much more of life for her to experience…

 

…”How do I get there?” she asks herself more often than she would like to admit. 

​She has a strong habit of quick starts and unfinished endings. Dionne frequently sets aside her passion projects, big ideas, and long-term goals, leaving them unfulfilled and unaccomplished, lingering in the background as missed opportunities.

​She’s secretly critical of her lack of discipline, focus, and follow-through. Nothing seems to get done as quickly as she knows it could and she knows opportunities for advancement are passing her by. She often feels very, very frustrated with herself and her circumstances. 

She's sick and tired of distractions being her worst enemy and undermining her ability to step into her personal power.

Do you recognize yourself in Dionne’s shadow?

Dear Distracted Dionne,

​I see you. I know you have big, bold dreams to advance your career or launch your dream business. I know that you’re in search of ways to get out of the frustrating, never-ending cycle of "getting ready to get ready" to live them.

I get it. I've been right where you are, and I’ve experienced the discontent and over-

whelming anxiety that comes with it. And yet, I also know what it’s like to simultaneously carry a deep longing to fully step into your authentic power. 

I understand what it feels like to crave and resist the structures needed for you to execute your plans. I know what it’s like to talk yourself into really going after your dreams and then sideline yourself and slide right back into the pit of self-doubt and second-guessing. This push-pull is extremely painful and quickly wears on your self-confidence and self-esteem.

Before I made the conscious decision to learn and practice the 8 Essential Keys to Freedom and Possibility to transform my mindset, I suffered, too. Using the steps I teach my clients daily, my life now is so much more in focus. I'm able to prioritize my ideas more easily and effectively move forward on them, and I want this for you, too.

 

I’d love a chance to connect with you to share my personal journey to recovery with you, learn more about you and your personal and professional dreams, and see how I might be able to help you make your own quantum leap in your mindset.  << Click here to claim a free session with me>>

You, too, can have the clarity to become the conscious creator of your biggest, boldest dreams and goals.

​Let’s hop on the phone together and explore your dreams and goals further.

​I'm looking forward to supporting you to get focused, confident, and in action on creating your best, highest version of yourself yet.

 

Cheering YOU on!

​Waiting-for-Perfect Penelope (You answered mostly B’s on the Quiz.)

In Penelope's mind, she can clearly see herself advancing her career or building her dream business with courage, clarity, and confidence.  In reality, however, she feels trapped by her circumstances. "If only..." she thinks, "...If only I had more money or a career that was a better fit or a more marketable business plan or had the courage to pursue my passion or had fewer obligations or weren't so afraid to truly express myself… when life and I are ‘perfect,’ then I’ll be able to take action." 

​She's not sure if she is more afraid of success or failure –– maybe both, and the clashing of the two considerably slows her progress. If only she could get beyond her list of “if only…” conditions, she might actually be able to boldest dreams and goals!

Others see Penelope as "having it all." While she doesn't want to seem ungrateful, and she knows she's blessed, she also knows that regardless of how things may seem, that she's struggling and something has got to change. 

 

She feels trapped between feeling driven to give her dreams her all, but at the same time, she also goes to great lengths to avoid taking risks in fear of being a disappointment or receiving criticism. Too often, this leads her to avoid the spotlight and downplay her true desires. Penelope's fear of judgment results in her feeling immobilized at times, being overly guarded about protecting her dreams and aspirations – all which suffocate her self-expression.

Penelope also tends to get trapped in a cycle of over-planning and over-perfecting her plans. She often gets stuck in the "getting ready to" phase. Despite the clarity she can see in her mind, her tendency to over-plan results in her self-sabotaging her efforts. She knows what to do, but she can't seem to make herself execute. The busywork of planning and replanning leaves her exhausted, and her self-doubt and uncertainty make her feel anxious and overwhelmed. 

 

More than anything, Penelope wants to achieve her biggest, boldest dreams, but the risk of failure and the resulting shame, embarrassment, and criticism are too daunting to face. So, she continues to work in the background, perfecting her plans. Meanwhile, opportunities and time march on, and the possibility of greater freedom passes her by.

Do you recognize yourself in Penelope’s shadow?

Dear Waiting-for-Perfect Penelope,

I see you. I recognize the mental, emotional, and physical exhaustion you carry around from the pressure to do it "all," to do it all "perfectly," and to do it "all by yourself" – or not start at all.

​I know that place where the fear of judgment and criticism and the strong tendency 

to over-plan can push the realization of your dreams further and further away from your grasp. I know how deeply you desire to keep your mask of protection on, and yet, I also know that you long to be in full expression of yourself.

I specialize in supporting individuals, just like you, make quantum leaps out of the shadow of Perfectionism, get off the sidelines, and get fully into the game of strategically advancing their careers or building their dream businesses with courage, clarity, and confidence….

...To stop waiting for perfect.

Impostor Ines (You answered mostly C’s on the Quiz.)

Ines carries a deep-seated secret: she believes she's in a role she doesn't deserve or isn't fully qualified for or hasn't entirely earned. Other people see her as a high-achiever and as an expert in her field, which only compounds her fear of being discovered. Her worst fear is that people will figure out that she's a fraud, that she doesn't really know what's going on.

Ines feels like her authentic self is trapped inside the fake facade that everyone has come to know as "her." Stuck inside, she can't seem to access or express the most genuine parts of herself, yet she smiles, puts on her lipstick, and seamlessly plays the "part" that she's been assigned. All while she suffers silently. 

On some level, she believes she can't afford to explore her authentic side or to dream too big for the fear that she'll risk it all and blow her cover. She knows she has something unique to offer the world through her professional or entrepreneurial aspirations, but she is uncertain about what it is.

​Ines secretly longs for someone or something to tell her the exact steps to take to find and express her authentic self but she is too afraid to ask for help. The thought of asking for outside support triggers her fear that people will finally have the evidence she's been secretly hiding – that she's not fully qualified, a fraud, and that she doesn't really belong. Ines feels trapped by the fear that people will see her for who she truly is – not an expert, but a person who doesn't really know herself.

This never-ending cycle of ultra-independence and over self-sustaining causes Ines to feel like her life is a solo journey of inner isolation and constant disguise. ​Under the beautifully polished veneer, Ines is exhausted, anxious, overwhelmed, and lost in wondering when her authentic life is finally going to begin.

Do you recognize yourself in Ines’ shadow?

Dear Impostor Ines,

I see you. I so appreciate how hard you work to keep "it all together." And, I can feel the loneliness and longing you experience inside the "costume" of your everyday life.

I want you to know that I, too, secretly harbored anxiety, discontent and even deep shame in my prior life. The inner conflict of feeling like a fraud, holding your breath

waiting to be called out, and yet longing to feel authentic, whole, and free to express yourself fully, leaves little space for inner joy and peace.

I know what it's like to feel that despite your degrees and personal and professional successes, you're not enough. I too have experienced feeling disconnected from my purpose and lacking the direction to move forward.

​Perhaps you have ignored your desires for so long or have put other's expectations and needs ahead of your own so often, that you're uncertain if you even know what you want to do with your life.

Operating on 'auto-pilot' is efficient, but not necessarily the path to living our best selves. The power of the Advance Accelerator Program for me was that it shined a light on my ‘default settings,’ and gave me the tools and focus to help me be intentional in my thinking and decision-making. I feel inspired and empowered by the notion that I already have in me the ability to create my best life.

- Alexandria, Education Guru & Consultant

Ryane and the process she has created were instrumental in guiding me through the steps to do the inner-work necessary to quiet the voice of "Sabotage." This work was the foundation that paved the way for me to get clear on what I truly desired for my life and business. Once I gained this clarity, Ryane helped me to identify and manage the thoughts, beliefs, and habits that kept me from taking the ACTION needed to get me from where I was to where I am now – running my dream business.”

- Tobi, CEO of Curated Brilliance & 
Brand Story Architect

Ryane has been a truly motivating force in my life. Initially, my goal was to gain clarity regarding my career path, and with Ryane’s help, I am on my way to achieving my professional goals.

Ryane has helped me to turn my ideas and aspirations into action. She has personally given me the confidence to embrace my true calling and the blueprint to successfully transition into a new career.

 

Ryane’s knowledge of personal transformation is only surpassed by her genuine, caring, and client-focused approach. You will not find a more supportive or intuitive coach.

 

I highly recommend you engage INSPIRE for leadership development and personal coaching. I guarantee the experience will be transformative.
