We are awaiting hurricane Laura’s landing here in Louisiana and I can tell you that fear is alive and well. Thankfully for our area, Laura will likely be nothing more than a few thunderstorms…not a big deal for us.
But let’s talk about fear. As I write this we are still in the midst of a global pandemic that has brought paralyzing fear to many. As a leader, it is important for you to insulate against fear. In order to be a successful leader, your followers must see your courage in the midst of fear.
Ask yourself the following questions:
Are you insulated against fear in your life?
Are you insulated against fear in your business life?
What would your team say about you? Is your team insulated against fear?
I have a proven method that will take you through the steps to become insulated against fear. High level coaches will walk you through a process that is guaranteed to insulate you against fear and empower you to achieve success you never imagined possible.
Join us on September 16, 2020. Bring your entire team for maximum benefits of being empowered against fear and other obstacles that limit your success.
See you there!

I’m sure you’ve been there before, you made a plan, you just know it’s going to work, you made all the right moves, taken all the right steps, and you are moving in the direction you desire. You can see success just ahead. Then it happens, suddenly there is a major change in circumstances, and you find yourself scrambling to find a new path to success in your new-- unexpected--situation. If you are actively seeking success in your life this absolutely will happen to you. Actually, it will likely happen numerous times...
Great leaders learn to shorten the time between the initial shock and the initiation of new behavior patterns that give you positive results in the new situation you find yourself. But here’s the secret…
Learning the skill of rebounding quickly can get you and your team moving forward in a short time.
The first thing to remember is that experience isn't the best teacher. A bad experience will only teach you that you don't want to re-live that experience again. It won't teach you how to change your results.
To change your future results it is important that you evaluate your experience. Take a good hard look at what went right, what went wrong. Don't sugar coat anything. Listen to your team and anyone else who is willing to give honest feedback.
Listen and don't justify. Just listen and take notes. Take a moment on your own for self reflection. What do you think happened?
Don't pause here too long. This step should not take longer than a day or an hour, depending on the severity of the problem. The key is to identify and move on.
Next, be open minded about how to move forward. If you've been open to what went wrong and took a thorough and open minded approach to the problem you are already ahead of the curve. Now strategize for a better outcome in the future. Don't be afraid to think outside the box.
Live awesomely, Angela Decoteau (Deck-uh-toe)

Have you ever wondered why some people succeed while others do not? Here's a simple three step process that you can apply today that has helped hundreds of thousands of people around the globe achieve success.
We are all born with different God-given talents, but that’s not enough. Talent does not equal results. Otherwise, all successful people would be talented, which they’re not, and all unsuccessful people would be untalented, which they’re not. You know this from your own observations.
Do you know or have you heard of someone who is really talented but doesn’t seem to get the results they deserve? You probably know someone like that. Maybe you know dozens. You probably know many successful people who seem to lack talent too. Again, they’re everywhere – aren’t they?
Here’s some statistics that may help you see what I’m talking about.
Here’s the good news, leadership is absolutely a teachable skill. When applied to your life, leadership skills can help you become the best version of you possible. Below is a method of goal achievement. It's one thing every successful person has in common, and it’s not natural skill, the one thing they all have in common is that they:
1. have a vision
2. create a plan to achieve that vision, and
3. execute upon that plan.
It’s three steps to success. Yeah I know, seems easy on paper. Don’t let those three simple steps fool you. They aren’t easy steps by any means. These three steps take a daily determination, a daily walk, toward that goal to achieve the desired success.
I’m not sure where you are today in your journey of success. I’m sure things have changed in your life due to the Covid-19's ever changing climate. But I want you to know I am here for you. My team is here for you. I just want to encourage you today to never give up on yourself. Never give up on your goals, never give up on creating the best version of yourself.
In your heart and in your mind, you have a voice that is telling you how amazing you are, maybe even prompting you to achieve something. Maybe it’s as simple as achieving some distance from the pantry. Whatever it is, no matter how seemingly small the goal, take some time and take action in those three simple steps. Don't get over zealous, only choose one goal.
My personal simple goal right now is to consistently do 10 minutes of yoga every morning starting at 7am. I’ve been working the plan for three weeks now and still not able to do it consistently every single day. That’s ok, new habits are hard to achieve and I’m not giving up.
I would love to hear from you. Send me a message and let me know what your vision is for your future and how you plan to achieve it.
