WHP017 – Toni McLellan – Do What Lights You UpMy guest this week is coach Toni McLellen whose motto is ‘Do What Lights You Up.’ Toni helps people lead soulful, fulfilling lives by connecting to what lights them up in life and work. – So you can see that we were always going to get on like a house on fire! She says on her website: “I’m not about quick fixes or heel-clicking-and-wishing with no action behind it. Life is a process of becoming – of self-alignment rather than self-improvement – and I believe it should feel great and be fun and engaging as often as possible.” I couldn’t agree more! So listen in as one croacky (getting over a cold) northern girl from England and one whip smart Chicago gal get down with overcoming perfectionism, what doing what lights you up really means, and why numbing ourselves with food, alcohol, overwork and the like are often just ways of trying to outrun the vulnerability that creativity brings out in us. Quotes from the show On Doing What Lights You Up: “The stuff that we do where time passes and we don’t even realize…that’s flow, that’s what lights you up….honing in on what makes time stop for you is super important for anything that you want to build or develop in your life. … you can’t skip that step.” Toni McLellan On Growth: “So much of growth is about risk and taking chances” Toni McLellan On Being Authentic: “I’m a person, you’re a person, let’s connect.” Toni McLellan You can connect with Toni at her website, or connect with her on Twitter, Facebook, Pinterest or Instagram.
