Nicoa Coach:

sometimes don't you just need a quick moment of inspiration? Or maybe you just need a moment of caffeinated contemplation to reflect on life. That's the idea behind my weekly coffee with Nicola espresso shots. I'll be sharing short jolts of inspiration in each clip. In addition to my longer Coffee with Nicoa interview episodes, make sure to subscribe so you never miss an espresso shot, or a full length Coffee with Nicoa interview created just for you. Hello, hello, it's Nicoa Coffee with Nicoa. Welcome to this week's espresso shot. Do you know that I have this little thing I do in my life by design that just makes me so happy. I mean, it really makes me happy. And it's the cheesiest, easiest and free, freest thing you can do every single time that I order something online. And it gets so you know how you order something on Amazon? And then let's say you're going to send it to a friend or send something, you're going to order it for any reason. And it says, Would you like to add a gift note? Yeah, that's what I do, I add a gift note to everything. Like, I add a gift note to my reorders my subscription orders of my detergent, I add a gift note, if I'm ordering a pack of pens, I add a gift note to every book that I send to my clients that have copies of energy leadership, I add a gift note to everything. So why do I do that? Well, first the most obvious reason, because that's completely fun. But Nicole, it takes extra time. I mean, what a waste of effort. Are you kidding me, I have the most fun creating little gift notes. I use the gift note to celebrate myself. Some of you might have even watched the unboxing I did the other day of my Desmond and Dempsey night gown. It's this beautiful pink linen night gown. And I had been coveting it for months. And I was not really able to rationalize the investment. Because it was it was a little bit of a of an investment on my part. And one day, I got the I got a rebate for some contact lenses that we purchased. You know, if you buy like a year's worth of contact lenses, I got this $200 rebate, and I was like, Oh, that's a good reason to order myself this night gown. So I use that gift card. And then when I was ordering it, I filled out the gift message to myself the gift note. And let me tell you, if you haven't seen that, I don't think you can actually see it because the unboxing was on my Instagram story. But if you're interested, I'm happy to find it and share it with you because it was so beautiful. I mean, one of the things that I love the most is the aesthetics of the things that I invest in that I purchased. And Desmond and Dempsey did this beautiful box. And the gift card with my beautiful gift note in it was in an envelope. And it was a beautiful envelope with these, this print. And the night gown itself was wrapped in tissue with a sticker. And I said something like congratulations for a phenomenal first half of your year. You deserve it. And this is going to make you look even more beautiful. Love me. Now, if you haven't quite figured out this life by design strategy yet, by listening to me, let me just make it really clear to you, you, my friend, are the common denominator to this joy filled, satisfying happy life that you are craving. So it doesn't mean that you don't deserve to have other people do nice things for you. And it doesn't mean that you don't need human connection or need external external validation from being rewarded from your work that you do or someone's saying something nice or even gift giving. But what it what it does mean is don't sit around being the martyr or being a victim to wishing things nice things were happening to you and not taking responsibility to create those nice things for yourself first, if like energy attracts like energy, and the way you feel attracts more of the way you feel. Then I'm thinking you better start filling out some really awesome gift notes. Gift cards to yourself and start with anything. What do you wish was happening more of in your life? And then go create that. What are you crazy Giving from someone else? And how can you go? Give that to yourself? Whether it's a sweet little note, a thank you note, like the one I wrote to myself when I was feeling like a martyr one Christmas, where I felt like nobody was being grateful when I had simply set a standard so high that no one had access to creating that reality with me, because I wouldn't let them in. So I just made it all happen. And then I was burdened by it. And I thought nobody thinks me what was me. And I wrote myself a thank you note. So what can you do this week, to own and create and intentionally design a life or a moment or a thank you or an experience that's going to make you feel better? That's going to make you happy and filled with joy and satisfaction? I'd love to hear please DM me and let me know what your gift note will say. Happy espresso shot.
