Chaos, Overwhelm, Pandemonium – Put A Positive Spin On It!

Chaos. Overwhelm. Pandemonium.

Some days just roll like that, right? But have you ever thought about putting a positive spin on these chaotic days? Have you ever said, “Yeah, reality bites, but I can still be grateful about other things in my life that are working. I can still be positive even in the face of turmoil.”

If there’s one thing I’ve learned from “The OolaGuys”—Dave Braun and Troy Amdahl, authors of the international bestselling book Oola—is that gratitude not only helps us stay balanced during life’s crazier moments, it actually brings about the support, opportunity, and abundance that keeps us balanced. Gratitude fosters hope, help and healing.

So having a grateful heart—and staying in a state of grateful anticipation—is an important part of living the OolaLife.

But being grateful doesn’t mean you’re complacent or done with striving for a better life. As the OolaGuys recommend:

Keep one hand on your heart in gratitude, while the other hand reaches out toward growth.

There are probably parts of your life you’re satisfied with right now, but other parts where you know you need to grow.

That’s where I can help.

If you’ve been following my past posts, you know that I’ve joined forces with Dave and Troy to bring my followers the Oola formula via a 10-week coaching experience designed to transform your life, your finances, your relationships and more. Message me and we can jump on a call about it.

The Oola Coaching Program is the formula I discovered that has transformed not only my life, but the lives of countless people around the world. Not only will it help you define the goals you want to achieve, it will keep you accountable to doing those things every day that bring about the results you want.

Check out Oola Coaching and work with me every week to find balance and calm the overwhelm in major life areas like finances, fitness, family, field (career) and more. For now, comment below (or message me) with one thing you’re grateful about today – and one area where you know you need to grow.

Oola and “The Great British Baking Show”


A Balanced Life is Like a Well-Balanced Recipe.

When I first started pursuing my dream career of Life Coaching, my husband would get asked, “What does Life Coaching mean?” My ever-unfailing husband stated, “Think of a recipe. Everything has to have balance in order to cook correctly and taste right. That is the same with your life. My wife helps you get all the ingredients correct for YOUR life.” What a great explanation!

“The Great British Baking Show”

Recently, my husband and I have really enjoyed watching “The Great British Baking Show”. The show is on PBS and Netflix. On the show, 12 contestants do bake offs to see who made the best dessert or breads. The contest lasts 10 weeks and has 3 stages – signature, technical, and show stopper. Every week 1 or 2 contestants are sent home, and one of the remaining contestants is named Star Baker. During the final week, the last 3 contestants compete to win the overall competition.

As we have watched, I have noticed several similarities between the contestants’ journey on the show and one’s journey to living an Oola Life. First, the contest lasts 10 weeks, just like the Oola Coaching Program and my new Positively Powerful Life Coaching Program. Next, the word BALANCE continues to come up time and time again when discussing the contestants’ recipes and when critiquing their end results. Last, the signature stage of the contest kicks off the theme for the three bakes. In the coaching programs, there is also a theme that we focus on each week.

What Ingredients in Your Life are Balanced?

A recipe can have any number of ingredients and steps to it. Luckily, getting your Oola Life consists of focusing on 7 Areas of Life and 3 Steps.

The 7 areas of an Oola Life are: Fitness (mental and body health), Field (career), Finances, Family, Faith, Friends and Fun. The goal is to have as much balance as possible in all of these areas. When you bake a cake, it’s done. There is an end result. However, the journey to live an Oola Life is ongoing. There is no finish line per se. For some, this may seem daunting. Most people want a finished product. But think about your life. It is always evolving – always changing. The Oola coaching programs teach you the skills you need to overcome obstacles, some we call OolaBlockers (Fear, Guilt, Anger, Self-Sabotage, Laziness, Envy, and lack of Focus), and how to use the best practices for manifesting your dream life with a good dose of OolaAccelerators (Gratitude, Love, Discipline, Integrity, Passion, Humility, and Wisdom).

The 3 steps to living an Oola Life are the Oola Wheel, Oola Plan, and Oola Path. The Oola Wheel is finding where you are presently. The Oola Plan helps you identify where you want to go, and the Oola Path is the planning and executing how you are going to get there.

10 Weeks to the Life You are Meant to Live.

Now, unlike ”The Great British Baking Show”, there is not an elimination at the end of each week. The commitment you put into each week of the coaching program is what you get out of it. When you decide to show up and put in the effort, you will begin to see and feel positive changes in your life. Often, people around you will also notice the changes too. People will seem to gravitate more to you. Afterall, who doesn’t want to be around someone who lifts them up and makes them feel good?

One Hand In Gratitude, The Other Reaching For Growth

Be grateful, have faith, and go get your OolaLife.

For years, I’d heard that mantra from Dave Braun and Troy Amdahl—the “OolaGuys”—in their popular books, webinars and more. The idea of being grateful in all things—no matter what—comes from the story of Dave’s nephew Jared, who constantly looked for things to be grateful for as he slowly battled and eventually succumbed to luekemia.

Are you grateful in all things?

I find that, when I’m grateful, even more good things show up in life. I’m even grateful for the mishaps I’ve lived through, since it gives me better appreciation and a more positive outlook on where my life is going next.

Being grateful in the moment is important, but so is looking forward to what’s next—another lesson from Oola. In fact, as the OolaGuys say:

Keep one hand on your heart in gratitude, while the other hand reaches toward growth.

So where do you need to reach out and grow? Where do you need be grateful?

When I coach clients through the 10-week Oola coaching experience, we look at the 7 major areas of life and create a plan for growing (and being grateful) in each of these areas. Can you grateful for what you have, while also growing in new ways?

Fitness: Grateful for good health, but exercising more?

Finance: Grateful for good pay, but lowering debt, too?

Family: Loving the kids, but improving your marriage?

Field: Grateful for your job, but seeking new skills, too?

Faith: Grateful for faith, but with a daily practice, too?

Friends: Grateful for BFFs, but seeking mentors, too?

Fun: Grateful for time off, but adding adventures, too?

If you’ve been following my posts, you know that I’m big into getting what you want in the 7 major areas of life. Now, as a Certified Oola Life Coach, I can help you bring about the lifestyle, relationships and financial security you need to be happy, balanced and growing.
