Five Ways to Life Yourself Up When You are Feeling Stuck & Down in the Dumps
Santa Barbara Life Coach Jesse Brisendine's Thoughts on Life

I consider myself to be a fairly positive person and I love to laugh and smile a lot. However, I am also human and there are times, especially those heartbreaking days after a loss, where I feel anywhere from broken to downright depressed. I used to think I had to wait until that feeling passed until I could be happy again - that I had to struggle with the sadness and depression until someone or something decided I could be happy. What I know now is nothing could be further from the truth. That is because you and I have the emotional resourcefulness available to us to shift from ho ..read more

3 Ideas to Improve Your Life

Hello and Merry Christmas (at the time of this writing December 24th, 2017) It does not feel very much like Christmas in my little beach town of Santa Barbara.  The weather has been very warm. There has been the ongoing Thomas Fire which is now the largest in California's history. The result of this had much of Santa Barbara and surrounding areas evacuated and left many local businesses empty and deserted. Anytime "life" happens, I always try to take a step back from it and think: "what is their to learn from this? What lesson(s) can I take away? How can I use this to make my life bette ..read more

Thomas Fire Introspection
Santa Barbara Life Coach Jesse Brisendine's Thoughts on Life

Hi! If you have been watching the news at all you may have seen some of the reports about the Thomas Fire which has been affecting Ventura and Santa Barbara counties. I call Santa Barbara home - I love my little beach community. The Thomas Fire (at the time of this writing is currently the 3rd largest in California history) broke out on Monday night December 4th. It quickly decimated 100's of homes in neighboring Ventura (approximately 30 miles south of Santa Barbara). As the fire grew, smoke began to pour into Santa Barbara causing our air quality to plummet down to an unhealthy and hazar ..read more

I was speaking with a client a couple days ago. We were in the midst of talking about some of her goals as we had just finished up removing the mental and emotional obstructions to those goals. I'm in mid tangent (as I sometimes find myself in) when she stops me and asked me arguably the best question I have heard all week: "Why are people sometimes more committed to talking themselves out of solutions to their problems/challenges than they are committed to finding answers and acting on them?" Good question, right? It came up because she is someone who we have spoken about working together a c ..read more

Where Do You Look for and How do You Find Hope?
Santa Barbara Life Coach Jesse Brisendine's Thoughts on Life

During my brainstorming session of what I wanted to write about today I came across a video that had no words, only music. The video told a visual story of an underdog rising above the perennial favorite to win the competition the two were engaged in. It was from this video that I heard the words "people are always looking for hope," speak as clear as day in the depths of my unconscious mind. Myself being one who advocates the trusting of one's intuition to my clients as well as a continued dedication to improve my own acting on my silent voice - I'm going with this message with the belief t ..read more

Why Positive Thinking Is Not The Answer
Santa Barbara Life Coach Jesse Brisendine's Thoughts on Life
by Anonymous
2y ago
There is a huge misconception about positive thinking - it's been sold almost as this idea that if all you do is think positive then life will work out perfectly. If you think thinking positive is going to solve all your problems, then you got a problem. Positive thinking is important and boy does it sure help brighten up a cloudy day, but relying solely on it to change what needs to be changed ain't gonna cut it. If you were in the middle of winter, freezing cold temperatures, whiteout conditions, you wouldn't go outside in your swimsuit and chant for 60 minutes, with a smile on ..read more

Three Ways to Instantly Become More Passionate About Life

Passion... A word that when you hear it you want what is the source of it. We see people throughout life who have "it." The "it" they have is passion. Whether it is in their relationship, their career, their family, or just how they interact with life; there is no mistaking a passionate person. The big myth about passion is that it is reserved only for those who were born with it; meaning you either won the genetic lottery and have it, or you don't. Nothing could be further from the truth for passion is not something you are born with, it is something you create. And who doesn't want to c ..read more

The Importance and Power of Practicing Gratitude
Santa Barbara Life Coach Jesse Brisendine's Thoughts on Life
by Anonymous
2y ago
One of my goals for 2017 has been to do an ongoing daily gratitude "challenge." I say "challenge," because the challenge is to make a daily post (on Instagram which you can follow me on by clicking here.) about something I am grateful for, but really it has been such a gift - a gift to take time every day to be consciously aware and express gratitude for the gifts that life gives. It can also be "challenging" to focus on gratitude when "life" happens. Our default tendency seems to be to focus on the few things that go wrong (small or big) vs all the things that are going right. The "bad stu ..read more

Five Ways to Fight Feelings of Failure

Feelings of Failure Will Fuck You Up! Now that we got that out of the way lets dive in. I opened with a strong statement because this is not something to pussy foot around on. Failure, specifically our perception of it and the inevitable feelings that come with "THAT" perception, can really "F" things up if something is not done about it. Failure is one of the greatest universal fears. Whether it is failure in a relationship, failure at work, failure at money, failure with health, failure at winning the game, or/and failure in life... perhaps more than anything else, the fear of failure ke ..read more
