What Would Become Possible if You Stopped Stopping?

Creating The Impossible, Personal Story

You’re either all the way on, completely off, or somewhere in the middle, revving up the momentum you lost from the last time you decided to stop. You’ve chosen greatness because greatness is who you are. And yeah—sometimes the journey gets tough and uncomfortable and like day fading into night, you want a break. You move from actively making your mark on the world back into yourself and the quiet stillness of an ordinary human life. You choose stillness because stillness is who you are too. The thing is though: Stillness will never be enough on its own. That’s because the other part of yourself—the part that’s here to lead...

The #1 Mindset Hack You Need to Make Your Dreams REAL Next Year

Creating The Impossible, Inspiration, Personal Story

Generating a list of what you want is easy. Making it real is a whole different story. How do you reconcile the two? I remember a particular day four years ago—October 1st, 2013 to be exact. It was the day the U.S. government was forced into shut down and as a result, all of the National Parks were closed until further notice. While this typically wouldn’t be an issue, that day—it was. You see, that was the exact day my best friend and I were leaving on an eight week road trip across the U.S. with the intention to camp and explore many of the National Parks. I was suffering...

When Did You Stop Growing?

Creating The Impossible, Personal Story

If you only let in what “feels good,” are you shortchanging your growth? I used to be defensive as hell. I hated feedback. I hated reflections. {Even when people had permission to give them}. They made me cringe. They made me cry. I made them mean that I was “doing something wrong.” AKA: a major trigger for me. To protect myself, I was like water on canvas—I never let them sink in. In fact, I went to war. I was “RIGHT.” They were “WRONG.” And as a result, I defended exactly where I didn’t want to stay. That’s the thing with creating what feels impossible—the way you’re used to being...

What This World Needs More Of and What I Plan to Do About It

Creating The Impossible, Inspiration, Personal Story

Hi, hello! Have you wondered where I’ve been? I’ve been wondering too. Where are my words? Why has it become so hard to write? I used to churn out a new blog every week. On Tuesdays, I’d show up to my local coffee shop with an eagerness and an idea and I’d walk out with a buzz and a blog, freshly pressed into the ethers of the internet. What happened? For one, I’ve become too much of a perfectionist for my own good. And even more alarming than the first, I’m sick of my own ideas. I’m tired of what I typically write about. It appears, that like the Earth,...

How to Make Progress When You Want to Give Up

Creating The Impossible, Inspiration, Personal Story
Kayla MacArthur

I’m currently stuffed into a sunken arm chair facing shelves and shelves of books. They’re faded and worn, some crumpled and torn at the edges. If I’m lucky, a soft, cool breeze floats in through the window to my left. It carries with it conversation and a tinkle of silverware from the tables below. If I listen hard enough, I can hear the Sawmill River rushing over its rocky bed. For quite some time now, I’ve wanted to visit the Book Mill. It’s quaint allure has called me closer and as I sit here, finally here, I can feel the magic and the charm I hoped it would have. In...

Clarity in Cabo: Why I’m Going Part-Time in My Coaching Business

Inspiration, Personal Story
Manifest More Success

Nothing can touch the bliss I feel. Even as we’re thousands of feet in the air flying home, a sense of peace has settled in my bones and I’m luxuriating in it like a bath. For the past four months, I’ve felt eerily lost. I thought that because my business had finally reached a certain level of success, I’d never feel this way again.. It seems, though, that no matter where you are on the journey, there are still stretches of discomfort where creativity dries up, utter exhaustion sets in, and the cash that flowed freely before, starts to slow. I’ve been patiently surrendering into this barren void and like...

What a Lack of Motivation Really Means & What to Do About It

Personal Story, Raise Your Vibration
Manifest More Success

It rained in Massachusetts for a month. Every day was cloudy, cold, and bleak. Winter was clinging desperately, digging its heels into the fresh soil of Spring. While it would have been easy to blame my lack of motivation on Winter’s inability to surrender, I knew deep down that my energetic rut wasn’t about the weather, but rather—it was the same old pattern coming back for more. The pattern you think you’ve healed, only to have it show up on your doorstep wrapped in different paper. For a good majority of my life, I’ve struggled with cycling through energetic highs and lows. The highs are always great. Who doesn’t love...

What Tulum Taught Me About Manifesting More Success

Inspiration, Personal Story, Self-Care
Kayla MacArthur

It took me THREE DAYS to completely turn off. In one of the most beautiful paradises I’ve ever been to, it took me three whole days to leave the computer locked in the tent and to pack the personal development books back in my suitcase. Three whole days—lost to the illusion that one can be “on” while simultaneously turning “off.” Tulum, with all of its beauty and magic, taught me how to relax again. And I’m not talking about the kind where you kid yourself by having one foot in and one foot out—I’m talking FULL ON RELAXATION. The kind where you melt into one of the canvas beds propped...

The Best Tool You Already Have to Manifest More Success

Inspiration, Manifesting Mindset, Personal Story
Kayla MacArthur

I was speaking with a Client last week about her discomfort with the need to prove herself. For much of her career, she’s felt the drive to continuously learn and gain more knowledge so that she could appear as a true expert. While this isn’t necessarily a bad thing—I was curious about the motivation behind her drive to learn. What was it? As we dove deeper into the issue, she told me a story about a fellow colleague who had caught a potentially serious incident with one of his Clients before it could get worse. At this point, we were getting somewhere. Next, I asked her how her colleague caught...

What is Your Anchor?

Personal Story, Raise Your Vibration, Self-Care
Kayla MacArthur

Pursuing and living your calling is one of the highest forms of WAKING UP. When you’re anchored in the world by your calling, you feel a sense of fulfillment that is no match to what any relationship, any drug, or any amount of money from a soul-sucking job could provide. I know this because I’ve experienced it myself. There was a time in my life when I was anchored in the world not by my calling, but by the men I dated. They WERE MY WORLD and I let my life revolve around them. I let them be my purpose—to the point where I became obsessed. So obsessed that I...
