My week in pics: Visiting the beautiful Santiago, Chile, meeting Jeanne Beker, who was also speaking at Canadian Payroll Association’s annual conference, having fun practising selfies and making new friends at the CPA conference in Niagara Falls, Ontario. 

The Top 3 Obstacles to living BIG (And how to CRUSH them!)

I’m back home again, having stopped for a few days en route last weekend in beautiful Santiago, Chile! I had the pleasure of speaking at the CPA conference yesterday, and I’m getting ready to head off to New Orleans to speak at SHRM (the Society for Human Resource Management) this weekend. Yes, lots of the go, but it’s exciting!

Earlier this week I gave a live training on the Top 3 Obstacles to Living Our BIGGEST Lives, and it really resonated with the folks watching. And so I thought I would share some of the ideas with you here today. Because once we identify what may be holding us back, we’ll know how to bust through!!!

So if you’re ready to get out of excuse-ville, powerfully shift your mindset, and find your positive peeps posse, then I invite you to join The Tribe… because you’ll find all that and more in this powerful community!

Can can find our more and SIGN UP HERETODAY IS THE LAST DAY TO JOIN! Don’t miss out!

Have a FAB week!

Happy Friday!


I’m Carol Schulte, and welcome to another video edition of my Happy Friday blog.

And greetings from Niagara Falls, Ontario! No doubt you can see the falls behind me, as well as the beautiful mist, and a beautiful rainbow to boot!

Yes, I’m back in Ontario, back in Canada, excited and honoured to be presenting at the Canadian Payroll Association’s annual conference, with this year’s theme being “Generating Momentum.” And that is exactly what we’re going to be doing during my sessions tomorrow.

However, today we’re not going to be talking about generating momentum (well, we kind of are!) we’re going to be exploring deeper into this idea of living BIG – you know that’s what I’m all about! – but today I want to talk about the obstacles that get in the way. And more specifically, we’re going to look at three ideas, the three biggest obstacles that may prevent us from living our biggest lives, as well as three ways to conquer or crush them!


  1. We live in Excuse-ville!

There’s a difference between reasons and excuses. And yet sometimes we get them mixed up! And we’ve become so good at rationalizing and justifying why we can’t take action on what we truly want, or go after that big goal, that big dream, or that big idea that we’ve had for a while.

I know, we’re got a lot on our plates. But we are never going to have enough time, enough money, our ducks are never going to be perfectly in a row, and our inbox is never going to be at zero. Ultimately, there’s never going to be the perfect time to take that first step. You have to choose it. And say enough is enough.

Now sometimes there are real reasons, I get that. But when are reasonable reasons acting in disguise for inexcusable excuses. So let’s be clear on what our reasons are, and what our excuses are, so we are no longer living in excuse-ville.


  1. We live with a ‘lack of’ mindset’

All too often we don’t believe enough in ourselves. We come from a place of ‘not enough.’ So many people experience this, so you’re not alone! You wake up in the morning and you feel like you haven’t had enough sleep.’ And that’s before we’re even out of bed! We can too easily get into the habit of having or feeling ‘not enough…’ We’re not ready, not good enough, not deserving enough, not worthy enough… whatever it is, we live in this place of not believing it’s possible.

Now our mindset is like a muscle. We have to work at it. We have to practice it on a regular basis. So what are you doing to work on your mindset?

Are you saying regular affirmations? Doing visualizations? Do you write, or read positive literature? Ensure you are working on that muscle that is your mindset. You can learn all of the business strategies, all of the amazing techniques, technologies, tools that are out there, but if you don’t believe that it’s possible, then it’s not going to happen.


  1. We are not surrounding ourselves by a ‘Positive Peeps Posse!’

We need to choose wisely the people we’re going to spend our time with. Do you have people around you that believe in you, that lift you up, that cheer you on? Or do you have people like those crabs in a bucket, who want to pull you down anytime you’re stepping up, stepping out, who don’t necessarily want to set you free or tell you that you can do it. We all need people who are going to be there for the good, the bad, and the ugly. People who are going to be there when we really need that heart to heart, when we need to be picked up, but who are also there to cheer us on, and to celebrate when we’ve accomplished something great.

Who is in your positive peeps posse, and what can you do to ensure you are surrounding yourself with more positive people, who are also up to big things. Who want to dream big, and play bigger in their lives.

So these are the three obstacles that get in our way, as well as some ideas as to how to push past them.


Get out of excuse-ville, create a positive mindset, and surround yourself by a positive peeps posse!


And when you continue to do that, you’ll continue to live a little bit bigger, whatever that looks like to you.

I’m Carol Schulte, Happy Friday and have a fabulous weekend!

And please share this video with someone in your life who you think could benefit from living bigger, and again if this resonates with you, then I invite you to look into The Tribe!

Today is the LAST day to sign up! So if you’re ready to step up your game, step out of your comfort zone, and step into your biggest life, then please come and join us in The Tribe.


Until next time, don’t forget to dream big, play big, and live big.
