The Ugly Truth Behind Do You Know Enough

The Ugly Truth Behind Do You Know Enough?

Do you find yourself stuck with having to learn or know more before you can do things for your business?

If you find yourself frequently studying, thinking, or asking others for their opinion/insights/ or how to's  before just doing it, then you may be stuck consciously or unconsciously with the need to know more before you can take action.

You are not alone. "How to..." searchings are the most common searches on google and youtube. I do it myself. However, I invite you to take a moment and check in with yourself, when is the point of you know enough for you just to do it?

Part of growing a skill is being in the act of just doing it. People who you look up to who do things so effortlessly like videos, speaking, webinars, asking for money/investment, blogging, you name it... they had to be with their fear, and then work through it and just do it.

Today I invite you to take a breath with the hesitation arising you may have. Say the affirmation, "I now release that I always need to know more before I do anything". Say it out loud. Say it and feel the hesitation and fears in your heart, body, and mind, and honor those fears by stating them, but also inviting yourself to be bigger than those. Say the affirmation again, and own the words, "I release that I always need to know more before I do anything".

Now be in action. I would love to hear what happens.

Here's to you and your business's brilliance and excellence.

“Should” verses “Could” and how you may be self-sabotaging your productivity, income, and joy

by Mellissa Rempfer on April 20, 2018 No comments

"Should" verses "Could" and how you may be self-sabotaging your productivity, income, and joy. Come discover a simple way to understand how your fears are influencing your ability to be in the flow of abundance financially in your life and business. Learn from Mellissa Rempfer, founder of Giving Excellence and discover how you may be self-sabotaging your productivity, income, and joy. 

Should vs Could Exercise

Grab someone to take notes with for tracking for the next 4 days. Make two columns, one for the "should's" and one for the "could's". Every time you notice that you say or think that something that needs to be done falls into the 'should' category make a tally mark. Same process for the 'could' category. Notice after a few days what is your default- should or could when it comes to how you operate. This is the subconscious operating system running your show of how you show up. Continue to be curious about how and what patterns are showing up with these words.

Waking up and inviting others

by Mellissa Rempfer on February 22, 2018 No comments

I will never forget sitting in Burlingame, CA for a training I thought was going to make me a better coach. “I have a little secret I want to share with you” said Russ Hudson, founder of the Enneagram Institute and now my mentor.

Who doesn’t want to know to be in on the secrets, especially those secrets that reveal deeper truth like the Wizard of Oz is a mere human.

“We have been asleep. We engage in life in an autopilot state and have no idea how we are just a man in a machine.”

I saw there listening to Russ. I engaged in the presencing grounding exercises. I noticed my uncomfortableness with all of this, after all, I was here to be a better coach, to build my business, and charge more money. (Hey, I promised I would be truthful and authentic with all of these blogs :-)).

I am not asleep, I know exactly what I am doing.

So I thought. And by “thinking” I was demonstrating exactly one of the many ways I truly was asleep.

I was asleep to having the wrong center of intelligence do the wrong job.

Imagine these three centers: head, heart, and gut/body/instinctive. Now imagine that the role of the heart center was being done by the head center, or the body center is check out so all the insinctive decisions are done by the heart which is being reactionary.

An easy explanation I heard was the farmer was doing the cook’s job, the cook’s job is doing the stable job, and the the stable person is out working the field. Talk about confusion, not being in alignment, and all kinds of mishaps and challenges.

This is what is happening when we are asleep. We are not being in connection with these centers of intelligences, and we are not aware of how we are on autopilot engaging in both life and in business.

Yet, I was’t asleep (so my ego is telling me). I am this great coach doing ____, ____, and ____. 🙂

To demonstrate the extent how we are asleep, Russ invited us to be aware of when we were listening to other peers give their introductions and just notice when we check out (you know those moments when you were listening, then… time warp/distraction/Charlie Brown’s teacher wha wha wha moment).

Yes, guilty, I checked out, yet, I wasn’t asleep. I am a coach who does transformation work. (HEH!)

Day two of the training, I am walking up to the meeting hall. Russ our teacher is standing by a car and greets me. I was in my own mental world thinking of who knows what on my to do list.

Lovingly caught in the act of being asleep. I then realized I was on autopilot, engaging in thoughts, reactions, and behaviors as I was walking up to the class.

Let’s just say there is a lot of awakening truth in the movie The Matrix.

I am committed to Connection, Compassion, and Awakening Truth. Connection to Presence and how everything unfolds and reveals. Compassion on our souls and our business’s through the growth process. Awakening Truth in all that we have been asleep to and what our brilliance is here to embody.

I would love to here your thoughts below. Share a way you have caught yourself on autopilot (could be driving a car, doing dishes, cooking, you name it).

Till next time!

Spirituality and Shadow Work

Spiritual Practice and Shadow Work



I am a believer that people come across our paths that support our own growth and development. This also includes people who bring awareness and light to areas that we don’t always want to be visible and present. One of these teachers for me is Russ Hudson from the Enneagram Institute.
Today’s article came from a post that Russ shared on social media: 10 Spiritual Things People Do that are Total BS. http://bit.ly/2hq196J

I have seen this emerging of people who are acting like they are these super spiritual beings and everything that do is for the greater good. I must admit, I have fallen into this same ego trap even though I did not wan to admit it, I even lost friends over my behaviours for the sake of spirituality and growth.

Spirituality is more than just how and what we do. It is about the authentic connection when we are present head, heart, body, and soul. Our own makings can distort these connections even when we let are believing we are doing the work. This is why I am a believer of community. It is through working with others that they can mirror back to us what we are actually doing when we don’t realize we have let the ego take over verses the essence, especially when our egos are masterful at mimicking essence giving us a false sense of truth.

Take a moment and just be real. Anything speaking to you? I know for me there were quite a few.
Here’s to you and your business’s brilliance!
