Perhaps, It's the Messiness That Is the Real Perfection, After All

by candy barone Oct 05, 2023

Where does our obsessive need for perfection come from?

In many cases, it is a direct result of our upbringing, our generational lineage, and the programming and conditioning we received as kids. 

Usually stemming from the feeling of not being enough, not feeling worthy, or not feeling seen by those we seek validation and approval...

1+1 = 2 … But, So Does the Square Root of 4

by candy barone Oct 04, 2023

We create such limiting perceptions around what’s truly possible. And, in our comparison of others, we tend to limit that view even more.

I see it all the time. And, truthfully, I have been guilty of it myself. 

We observe what someone else is doing, and immediately we think, “oh, I need to do that, too” …...

When Opportunity Knocks, Open the Damn Door

by candy barone Oct 03, 2023

It was several years ago when I was working with a client who was trying to start a new business endeavor, in addition to his already successful consulting practice. He was ready for something new and he had a vision.

We meet one day to start laying out all the pieces. And, we discussed what he was trying to accomplish, his main objective...

Baseball: A Great Metaphor for Leadership, Business & Life

by candy barone Oct 01, 2023

Well, to be honest, I am bit sad writing this post. The regular season for my beloved Chicago Cubs has come to an end. 

They were so close … so many times. The division, at one point, and then the wild card race, both were high possibilities.

Until they weren’t.

It came down to execution at the end. Finishing the momentum...

Vulnerability: A Leaders Most Powerful Asset & ROI

by candy barone Oct 01, 2023

Recently, I found myself talking with a good friend of mine and former colleague from my corporate days and I was adamantly reminded of the stigma presented around vulnerability that still seems to be so prevalent in business, especially corporate, today.

There exists this powerful notion and implication that vulnerability is to be avoided,...

I Told Myself "I Can't" … But, Actually What I Really Meant Is "I Won't"

by candy barone Sep 29, 2023

How many times have you fell victim to the debilitating notion that you can’t do something? 

My guess … probably more times than you can count. 

It tends to be a default phrase when the going gets tough. I can’t do ‘x’ thing. I can’t be vulnerable. I can’t let them see me sweat. I...

What If You Created Space for the Big, Fat, Juicy ‘Imagine if‘?

by candy barone Sep 28, 2023

We live in a culture that focuses far too much energy on all the “what ifs” that may of may not happen in your life on a daily basis.

Our energy is either spent rehashing the past, and playing that tape over-and-over-and-over again, or we spend our precious focus on projecting the worst-case scenarios we can possible dream up.

Killing Us Softly: The Hidden Dangers of Coexisting in a Culture of 'Nice'

by candy barone Sep 27, 2023

I hate to be the bearer of bad news … but, the culture of ‘nice’ is not having the effect you think. In fact, it’s likely that the impact it is having is actually the opposite of what we believe and keep telling ourselves. 

And, it’s killing us (literally and figuratively).

First, let me start by...

Busting Through the 3 Biggest Myths Regarding Human Design

by candy barone Sep 26, 2023

It was a little over five years ago when a client, in one of my mastermind groups, introduced Human Design to me. I remember the conversation like it was yesterday, as I was just coming off a very powerful retreat weekend working with a spiritual teacher of mine up in Vancouver.

There was so much healing that came through for me that...
