Cut these 2 Phrases for an Instant Confidence Boost

I have a very old book on my book shelf entitled, Your Body Believes Every Word You Sayby Barabara Levine. This book is crumpled and dog eared and has a few stains on it. I bought it  back in the 90's when I was still in the Army. I still have it because it was the first time I...

Fear Is An Instruction Manual

While working with a teen client recently on confidence, we were discussing that even though fear doesn't feel "good" to us, it is absolutely necessary. This is a not an easy sell. In the midst of this, I discovered that Fear actually comes with an instruction manual. That's good news...

You Are Not the Boss of Me

You are not the boss of me. That was one of my favorite lines as young, Traci Trouble. Since then, I have grown and matured and am now a much wiser Traci Trouble. So, now when I say it, I am generally not kicking the walls with the heels of my feet. Well, most of the time. I am totally loving...

I finally did something I felt good about.

When I first started working out with TCF, I did it since I knew I needed to get in better shape.  I wanted to be stronger.  Being heavy my whole life, I don't think I was necessarily doing it to be thinner.  I didn't want to keep getting bigger, and I knew I would keep getting...

Create a Healthy Moment, Just One

Create a healthy day! I say this instead of have a good day because days aren't given, as implied by the word "have" in "have a great day." Days are created. They are created by you. The really cool thing is that you don't have to create your "state" all at once. God or the universe or science,...
