Well, this is a whole new world and no, not the Ariel kind in Little Mermaid either. It's a lot scarier than Ursula could ever be. That said, there's also a lot to be hopeful and grateful for. One thing is if you're reading this and/or listening to me then you're alive and hopefully well. So that is a great place to start from...the rest is a little bit more complicated to say the least.

A month ago the entire world looked totally different from what it is now. As you well know life has almost instantaneously stopped for a huge part of the global population. We've all had to press the pause button in our lives and businesses. If there was a time that we wished we could work from home (to avoid that darn commute) or that we would stop saying "yes" to everything that we're invited too and spend time at home - we may be wishing for the opposite right about now.

To a lot of people being ordered to stay at home can be really difficult...and I get it. It's different when you have the choice to stay in and not want to see other people. It's a totally another thing to be ordered to stay home. It's in our nature to want something we can't have - and right now, what we can't have is the freedom to move about this world in the way we want and choose to. But here we are, in the middle of this pandemic and we know that staying home is what we must do to not only protect ourselves and our family, but also other people in our community.

But it does't make staying home any easier. Having had some personal experience in this space, I wanted to offer my tips on how to survive self-isolation. The tips I'm giving will seem like no-brainers, but you would be surprised that many skip doing them because of that exact reason. These are the steps I personally took to get through 18 months of self-isolation and I know they can work for you too - if you apply them on a daily basis. And if by chance you fall off the wagon and binge watch a few days of Netflix - it's okay, just get back on again. We're just trying to figure this out as we go.

Everything that we are experiencing individually and as a human race is new to all of us, no one knows exactly what's going to happen - the experts may have more information to go on than we do, and even they are giving it their best guess. So take comfort that we're all in this together and the only way out is through. We will see each other on the other side of our new normal and we will be more resilient than ever.

In the episode I mentioned that it's important for you to reach out to your community of friends, family and/or colleagues, but if they are not available to you, then call the numbers below to speak to someone that's here to help and lend an ear. We all need each other more than ever before right now.

Disaster Distress Helpline: 1-800-985-5990 or Text "TalkWithUs" to 66746

Wishing you, your family and loved ones to be safe and healthy now and always...xoxo Cat

Episode #35 What Do You Do When Life Changes In One Moment?

Bounce Back Like A Badass! with Cat Coley

play

03/10/20 • 25 min

It seems that we've barely scratched the surface of 2020 and already so many things around us are changing the way in which we look at life...don't you agree? From the unexpected passing of people I know and those whom I've admired from a far, to the current world situation of the latest virus taking this globe by storm - it seems that change is always upon us. How we react to these situations will set the course of our path.

For me there's one moment in my life that's changed who I am and where I'm going and every year at this time - I'm reminded of that moment. I can look back now and connect the dots, but I can tell you that it's taken a lot of time and self reflecting to get there. But I believe we all go through those defining moments - where one moment changes everything. For some of us, we have several of those moments, for others one is all they need. In this episode I'm sharing the exact moment that life changed for me and how I've looked back at that moment years later - knowing that in that instant my life was never going to be the same.

I can't wait for you to tune in and also if you're curious about the photo I talk about in this episode - you can find it on Instagram, so be sure to follow here! See you inside :) xoxo Cat

Episode #34 You Can't Always Get What You Want...

Bounce Back Like A Badass! with Cat Coley

play

02/12/20 • 26 min

...But if you try sometimes, you find, you get what you need ~ The Rolling Stones

There is so much truth to that verse, don't you think? Hindsight is always 20/20 of course. So many things in my life that I thought I wanted but didn't get - and it was all for the better. Even though at the time it was heartbreaking to comprehend, looking back so much of what I thought I wanted would have led me to different outcomes that weren't necessarily what I needed (the enjoyment of having that thing would have probably been short lived) .

The inspiration for this episode is actually a movie that I watched a month or so ago called "A Marriage Story". The story of a couple with a child who have found themselves on the verge of ending their marriage and all the intricacies that's involved with that decision - especially when an innocent child is involved. It spoke to me on so many levels - of course due to my own experience with this exact same situation. Even if the stories are different and these are fictional characters, I can imagine that a lot of people can probably see themselves in these characters.

I'm grateful with the path that my daughter's dad and I ended up choosing for our unique situation. I realize that not everyone is as fortunate as we were - in that we were both on the same page and we're both willing to truly set aside our differences to focus solely on our daughter. This movie shows the ins/outs of such a trying time during the ending of a relationship. Not just the heartbreak of walking away from someone you once loved - which is so difficult. But also, how to find your own footing again, how to regain your independence and how to find your place in the world - without your partner. I can't recommend this film enough and you don't need to be in a marriage or relationship to enjoy it either...but it certainly hits home even more if you are.

Life is always working out in our favor. I have to remind myself of this fact at times - especially when I want something so badly and it doesn't up the way I thought I wanted it. In the end, I have to remember that I always get what I need out of it . I'll see you inside the episode! xx Cat

Episode #33 If Not Now, Then When?

Bounce Back Like A Badass! with Cat Coley

play

01/30/20 • 24 min

This episode is inspired by an unfortunate tragic event here in Los Angeles, CA but undoubtedly was felt around the world. That tragedy is of course the untimely death of the bigger than life Kobe Bryant, his daughter Gianna and the seven other precious lives lost that day. This news hit like a ton of bricks and as the day unfolded I couldn't tear myself away from my phone. Half not wanting to believe and the other half wanting to know how this could have happened.

As the days have passed by I have read and watched so many millions of people share their own Kobe story of how he had touched and inspired them with his greatness, his tenacity, his drive, his focus, his pursuit of being the best he could be, his kindness, his generosity and his genuineness. There's no doubt that he was a legend not just in the sporting world, buy beyond and he will be greatly missed.

As shock and disbelief has turned into sadness and anguish, I know that time will continue ticking - as I've said before, time stops for no one - not even someone who has inspired millions of people around the world. Of those that knew him well the one sentiment that I've heard being repeated over and over is "I wish I had spoken to him just one last time..." But that is how we are designed - we always think that there's going to be tomorrow so we put off the things that we should be doing today.

Kobe's tragic death along with the 8 others reminds us that time is not guaranteed - not even to someone the world sees as unbreakable and unsinkable. We have watched Kobe take the clutch shot time and time again, we've seen him play through injuries that would put nearly anyone in the ER, he has worked 100x harder than those who aren't as talented as he was, he's made mistakes and made bad choices with huge consequences and he's persevered, his accomplishments are massive and awe inspiring, he's played through criticism, judgement and intense pain. He had so much more to give the world - so much more to contribute - but from all that I've read about him was....he didn't waste a day. He didn't put off tomorrow what he could do today.

And although we will never see the silver lining with all the lives lost - I hope that what we can take away is we must go after the life we want with the same tenacity and drive that Kobe did. We must not waste time overthinking the process and JUST DO IT. That we never put off what can be and should be done today for tomorrow...because it's never promised. I'll see you inside the episode! xx Cat

Happy Happy New Years my fellow BADASSES! Thank you for being here. I hope that you had the most amazing holiday spent with your loved ones, doing the things that excite you and bring you joy! And that's what this episode is all about...figuring out what brings you joy and executing on it to really get super clear on what you want! But it's not always that easy, right? First we need to do some inner work (btw just in case you've yet figured it out - it's always about inner work ;).

We spend so much of our time trying to find the solution to our problems and fix what seems to be broken - by searching for it outside of us. Whether that's through burying ourselves in our work, giving to everyone around you other than yourself, scrolling...scrolling...scrolling until your fingers are numb, shopping for anything and everything or trying to fill every second of our lives with things to do - so that we don't actually have to spend alone time with ourselves. Those are some of the sneaky ways we avoid going inward.

But in this episode I'm going to 'force' you to do just that! The only way to figure out what you want is to know where you're at. And the only way to do that is to ask some tough questions and for you to be truly open and honest with yourself. Now, I've done these assessments before and honestly, I've lied to myself about where I was at because it was just too difficult to face my truth. But doing so was a disservice to myself, because the only person that loses out is me. So, I hope that when you go through the 3 things I'm going to ask you to do - that you are open and honest with yourself and not allow your own self judgement get in the way of getting real clarity on what it is that ignites you from the inside.

Wishing you the most amazing start to this brand new year! I hope this episode inspires you to get super clear on what it is you want and take the next steps to create that life! I would so love to hear from you ~ and I would love to spread the word on this podcast that I'm so proud to create for you! If you can screen shot this episode, add me to your Instagram stories & tag me @ (https://www.instagram.com/catcoleycoach/) I will pick one LUCKY person to do a FREE one hour coaching call to talk about whatever you need help and guidance with - just for tagging me! So, listen to the episode, find the spark that ignites you and then go on Instagram and tell me all about it!

Thanks love - See you Inside! xo Cat

12/18/19 • 12 min

Hello Bounce Back Listeners! Yes, I'm back 🙌 I took a bit of a break from recording episodes to reassess what my goals are with this podcast. This platform was for me to share my personal and professional journey and all the while hopefully inspire you, the listeners, to also share your own stories! As I've embarked on this path I've learned so much about myself and I've also been able to explore different topics that fascinate me and that I want to share with you (again, with the hopes that it gives you something to think about as well - and possibly explore more of on your own).

So in the coming months I will be sharing more about my personal journey - because so many of you have asked. And also more about blending families - which is a situation that I didn't think would have been as challenging as it's been. I know that a lot of my listeners come from blended families and so many have asked how we've been able to manage and maneuver that complicated and intricate subject.

Let's just say it's about to get even more personal - however I will also be sharing my interview series of incredible women who have reinvented themselves and build an incredible life + business to be proud of. As well as of course giving you load and loads of tools so that you too can do the same! Cheers to a the end of 2019 and an even bigger cheers to the start of 2020 and a whole new decade!! xoxo - Cat

Episode #30 What To Do When You're In A FUNK!

Bounce Back Like A Badass! with Cat Coley

play

10/23/19 • 110 min

So, we've all been there - no one is immune to the chaos that sometimes lands in our laps. Because we all have free will - someone else's chaos can and will definitely slam into us, in the most unexpected ways at times. So knowing that we can't control anyone else but ourselves - how do we get ourselves out of the rabbit hole? In this episode, I go back a little ways in my story and talk about the times that I was definitely in my own version of hell. It may be many people's version of hell too - but hopefully no one went through it in the way that I did. So my hell was prison of course (if this is the first time you're hearing or reading about this - then I suggest listening to the first few episodes to get caught up :). So, there I was in my own literal prison and I had to figure out how to continue to function knowing that there was nothing I could do to change my fate.

Without knowing what I was doing - I started to find the answers internally. That's also the place I found strength and had faith that I would be okay, despite what I was having to deal with in the outside. My journey to my own 'bounce back' was filled with a lot of trial and error but in the end, I realized how resilient we all really are and that we all have the power inside of us. I also explain how we find ourselves experiencing the same thing over and over again - and how the mechanics (or actually the energy field) of our brain and heart can work against us or for us.

I can't wait for you to listen in on this episode and apply the tools I've provided for you to implement when you find yourself in a funk that you can't get out of. And also reveal a little bit more about my journey to where l am today... See you inside...xoxo, Cat

So let's talk about your morning routine...no, I don't mean the scramble to get out the door every morning but I mean a time you spend in solitude for a few minutes each morning. When the first thing you do in the morning is bombard your mind with the latest world news cycle, your to do list, your favorite social media app or your email inbox - you fill your mind with exhaustion and stress the very second you wake up. Having even just 5-10 minutes of silence time to yourself can help set the tone for your day. Whether you spend your time in silence during meditation, writing in your journal, thinking about the things you're grateful or setting an intention for your day - you can do all of those things within that time period or just one of them. All you're doing is raising your vibration so that energy is you put out in the universe in the morning attracts more in the same throughout your day. This helps you work through stressful situations and handle all the little things that come up that may take you off your game. Also inside the episode I'm going to walk you through how to set intentions for the day and how to not confuse setting intentions with your to-do list. I can't wait for you to listen in and start to apply these tips to your own morning routine. See you inside the episode...xx Cat

So what does quantum physics have to do with manifestation....well as it turns out everything! Yes, you read that right - everything! Quantum physics (also referred to as Quantum Mechanics and the Quantum Theory) plays a fundamental role in explaining how the world works. Quantum physics govern the behavior of all physical systems, regardless of size. Since everything in this world is energy - including our physical bodies and our thoughts - we are part of the quantum theory! In the quantum field there exist endless possibilities of different realms of reality/desires that we could ever hope for. Our job is to match our energy vibration with that of the vibration of our desires and we will attract that which we want into our physical reality.

I know that seems so simplified that it seems unbelievable that it really is that simple and the answer is yes, it really is that easy. The difficult part is that we are limited in our physical reality to change and increase our vibration because we don't have the ability to quantum leap into a new reality that we so desire! But we do have one tool that we can use to our advantage that will allow us to change our frequency dial and turn it up to match our desires...and its something that we have access to all the time! We just have to get used to using it!

So head in to the episode to find out about this "tool" that is at your disposal to be able to manifest your desires into your physical reality in quantum speed!

For those that have been listening to me for a while or follow me on social media - you know how passionate I am about quantum physics and how we can use it to create our own amazing reality. I've taken courses, studied peer reviewed scientific research, read dozens upon dozens of books, sat through hours upon ours of videos and have collected dozens of notebooks of notes on this subject - and still there is so much to learn. When I decided to embark on this subject it was just for myself - because this subject intrigued me and I wanted to know as much as I possibly could about it - but as I started to dig deeper and deeper and writing about what I was learning - I realized that I wasn't the only one that was intrigued about it. Now after years of doing my own research and applying bits in pieces in my coaching and on my self - I've decided that there was enough interest in this subject (and I've done enough research and implementing in my life and those I coach with great success) that it was time to create a program about it! I so excited to finally launch this program - "Quantum Manifesting - The Science Behind Manifestation"....It's packed full of what I've learned and tested in the last several years from the findings and research of physicist, biologist, neouroscientist, theorist and those that study epigenetics, neuroplasticity and quantum theories. But I've put it together in terms that don't require you to have a PhD in physics that understand!

I'm so excited about this program that I'm beaming with gratitude that all of this information is out there for us to better understand the universe that we live in and more importantly that we have the ability to use these tools to create a better life for ourselves and for those around us!

So, please check out the links below to see the details of what's in this incredible program and to get in at the pre-launch pricing! You don't want to miss out on the bonuses as well as they go away after the pre-launch sale ends! After you go to the link and sign up - come back to the episode so you can start applying the first step into quantum manifesting BEFORE the program begins at the end of the month!

Can't wait to see you inside the episode and welcome you in the program!!! Happy Manifesting....xx

Episode #37 Watch the road, not the potholes!

Bounce Back Like A Badass! with Cat Coley

Checking in to make sure that you are all doing okay and doing what's best for you, your family and your business. I know that its been a while since I've uploaded an episode. But just like everyone else around the world - we've all had to pause and re-calibrate these past few months. I want to always be intentional with the things that I put out in the world and I want to always be a source of value to my audience. I've felt a heaviness in these past few months and needed some time to as I said before, pause and reflect. I think that we're all doing a little (or a lot) of that lately. Our day to day lives have been upended and our what was once our normal is no longer that. But I'm hopeful that throughout this ordeal, we can all come out on the other side, enlightened, changed and better than where we were before. It's going to of course take time to get to that place, so give be kind to yourself and others. This pandemic, social unrest and economic turmoil happening all at once is unprecedented. There is not one person out there that has gone through all three all at the same time - so allow yourself some room to unpack all that's happening. Don't think that you have to have all your sh!t together all the time - because none of us do. Be mindful of where your thoughts go - as the title of this episode says, 'Watch the road, not the potholes'. Focusing solely on the potholes will only lead you to more potholes - look out at the vast landscape ahead of you. Focus your thoughts and energy on what is possible. Find the good in your situation even if it's faint. I promise to upload more episodes - but I too am being mindful of what I put out into the world. Be safe, stay healthy, be kind to yourself and others and please wear a mask. xo Cat
