Transformational Mothers Day gift

Transformational Mothers Day gift

As I woke up on Mother’s Day in May 2013 little did I know I was about to get a gift that was transformational to myself and my New Jersey communities.

One year later on this Mother’s Day I also received an amazing gift.  I called Kathleen Koch and she informed me that she will be part of an amazing event that will help what I call “Sandy Caretakers” those that helps others recover after Sandy.  This event is an amazing gift to all those that have worked tirelessly to help our community recover so please invite anyone you know.

THE JOURNEY TO RECOVERY: Healing Ourselves While Healing Others
Monmouth University
Thursday, May 22nd, 2014  Click here for all the details

Here is an excerpt from a blog post I wrote May 2013:
I woke up before the boys did I watched the sunrise and decided to create a post on Facebook. As I was looking through the news-feed I came across a post about a Mayors conference link to a blog post on More Monmouth Musing. As I read the blog post my heart was singing and my eyes were filling up with tears of joy. It had been on my mind and heart to reach out to Mississippi and see who I could speak to who understood what we were going through and what we could learn from them to rebuild and restore. I always say surround yourself with experts those that have done something already, learn the easy way instead of the hard way. I was planning to host the Sandy Summit in June and interview our mayors and organizations as well as experts in their field of recovery from a natural disaster and here this very group was coming here the following week.

Kathleen Koch  and  her knowledge was a Mother’s Day gift to myself and our community.  Meeting her and the Mississippi delegation, comprised of former Congressman Gene Taylor and former mayors Brent Warr, and Eddie Farve and  learning from their  experience through natural disasters has been such a wonderful transformational tool in my life and also in the life and businesses of my NJ communities.

Kathleen Koch, author and former CNN correspondent is the founder of a project linking mayors after disaster to share lessons learned and speed recovery. A Bay St’ Louis, MS native, Koch has dedicated herself to supporting survivors of natural disasters since Katrina.  She is the author of “Rising from Katrina: How My Mississippi Hometown Lost It All and Found What Mattered” .  She was sent to Japan by the U.S. State Department in March of this year to deliver her message of Resiliency and Words of Hope to the survivors of the 2011 earthquake and tsunami of the second anniversary of that catastrophic event.

Here is the “Live with Laura” interview I did with Kathleen.

The other person I meet during this event leading up to the Mayors conference was Michelle Beauregard.
When I meet her over the bridge in Seaside Heights, I found out she was here helping my own local New Jersey communities.  So needless to say meeting her was transformational as well because she had the most amazing insight and resources to help our community with funding and helped our mayors deal with paperwork, systems, process that they had never faced in their mayors careers.

These folks I mention here are now family to me and I am extremely thankful for them.
Thank you for changing the world and making a BIG difference in the lives of others.  A special thank you for helping my community and state in recovery.

It is my WISH  and actual DREAM that someone wakes up today on Mother’s Day that needs to connect with those that have been through a natural disaster, or an ‘extreme challenges’ and reach out to get help.  Having a support system of people that have been through ‘extreme challenges’ and have the tools and resources that you need makes a world of a difference in the recovery process.

My message to everyone today is Don’t give up.  You maybe going through an “extreme challenge’ right now and not understand how got get through it.  You will get through it.   You will be forever changed because of it.  “Challenges bring change” and it is my prayer for you that it will be transformational.

Here is a tool to help  your BREATHE.

Staring your fear in the face and doing it anyway

Staring your fear in the face and doing it anyway

Today was a full today filled with an in person workshop that allowed my students the ability to work on their goals  in a different way. There was a vision card session that accelerated their learning of what they truly needed to accomplish those goals.  It also allowed those that weren’t sure of those  goals and to bring them forward in their mind.  Then the students were able to take those photos and create a vision board.  The vision board helps to keep your focused on your goals and helps your RAS (Reticular Activating System) in your brain to know what to focus on. Your Reticular Activating System allows your subconscious mind to work on your goal whether you realize it or not.

That evening I invited these students to attend a event in NYC that allowed them to network with like minded people to help them increase their circle of  5 support system which I teach them in the 30 Day Transformational Challenge Toolbox™ program.

My one student who is also a dear friend offered to drive in the city as long as she could go the way that there was no bridges as she has a severe debilitating fear of bridges.  We agreed and headed off to travel to NYC.  All of a sudden she said “Laura look ahead”.

I knew what she was saying as I saw the bridge ahead of us.  She then said ” You are going to have to help me through this.” I thought she was asking me to drive which I said sure I’ll get in the drivers seat.  She said no just walk me through it.  So at that point I had to switch gears and go into coaching mode.  I told her she could do it, that she’s got this.  I also gave her some words that helped her that included the mantra I AM NOW Safe.  I AM NOW ok.  I am calm etc…

Well she did it sweaty palms and all.  She thought ok great I’m done.  However that would not be the case.  This very night she had to cross a total of 5 bridges, each one having her to face her fear and doing it anyway.  She described later what it felt like to look fear in the face and do it anyway.  She agreed that the evening was a success on so many levels which now allow her the freedom and the space to create the future that she wants.

The guest speakers inspired us and we filled our cup up.  The like minded women in the room reminded us that there are others that think the same way to inspire and help others.  The energy in the room was uplifting and energizing.
It was a very good day that gave us all the tools for our toolbox of life and the life of our business.
