Start Your “Someday When…” Projects Today with Kristin Swanson

A Personal Note From Orion

A lot of us have excuses for not executing our goals in life. We always say, “I need flexibility, a stable income, etc.” We have different reasons for waiting to start reaching our goals.

About Today’s Show

Hello, Kristin. Welcome to Stellar Life podcast. It’s so good to have you here. 

I’m glad to be here.

I’m glad you’re here. How did you discover your passion and become the person that you are today?

It all started with my corporate background in project management where I got very, very clear on my strength of listening to somebody’s vision and a plan just started to form before my eyes in terms of what steps they would take. That was the first piece of the puzzle. Then, I got clear that I wanted to do coaching, so I went and got my coach training, started to do business coaching, and was loving that.

At the time, my husband and I were both self-employed and it was the 2009 recession. I had a young child. We just decided that it was a difficult time to both be in that self-employment stage, so I turned one of my biggest clients into a corporate part-time job, and then I didn’t end up leaving that job for eight years. This was not my intention. My intention was to just have a quick, little bridge job and then go back to my business. 

There’s always going to be some reason why we’re waiting, and we don’t need to wait.

My business then became what I call a “someday when project,” something that you’re putting off. You know you’re going to do it someday, but it’s just not time yet. What happened with me and what I see happen with a lot of people is that my excuses of yesterday—which were I’ve got young kids, I need the flexibility, and I need that stable income—then turned into my excuses of tomorrow, which as life would have it, I’m a breast cancer survivor. 

I felt like I couldn’t leave my corporate job because I needed health insurance. What I then became very, very clear about is there’s always going to be something. There’s always going to be some reason why we’re waiting and we don’t need to wait. I kind of merged the two of these things, this life lesson that I just told you about, and then that corporate background where I was breaking things down into a plan.

The truth of the matter is that these soul-led goals that I talked about aren’t going to happen overnight anyway, so why not just take little steps while your life is already busy and full and stop waiting? I’m super passionate about helping people not wait for life’s ultimatums to take those actions and move towards those soul-led goals. That’s how I’ve come to this line of work and why I’m so passionate about it.

I’m a very creative person. As a creative person, I have very creative excuses as to why I cannot do the things I want to do. I’m so brilliant at those excuses. It’s good talking to you today.

I’m super passionate about helping people not wait for life’s ultimatums to take those actions and move towards those soul-led goals.

You mentioned soul-led goals. Some people have the goal of being famous on Instagram. Is that a soul-led goal? What is the difference between just goals and the ones that are coming from a deeper place?

For somebody, maybe the most famous on Instagram is, I don’t know. I would maybe question that one and where it’s coming from. It’s really all about when you get quiet with yourself and you really hear those (I call them) soul whispers—a lot of times, they are a whisper—that thing that’s pulling at you that you want to be doing. 

You know deep down what it is. Some people will tell me that they don’t and I believe that sometimes you don’t, but if you create enough space in your life to get quiet, then those answers and whispers will start to come.

I think the way that you know is coming from deep within, a higher power, something that’s calling to you, a lot of times, the ones that might be a little bit more where you feel like you should, or something that’s passed down from family or society, I think that would be the other side of the coin if that makes sense.

Yeah. I think a lot of the time when people say I don’t know what it is, it’s just another way to not look at it because if I knew that I knew, I’ll have to look at it. If I have to look at it, I have to take action. If I have to take action, it’s going to be really scary.

Exactly. If that speaks to somebody, I would ask, are you almost afraid to say anything out loud? Because that’s the thing that you don’t even want to say out loud but it’s there, a lot of times, that’s what it is. There’s just so much power in even saying it out loud.

Right. I was born in a way where modesty is a virtue. Don’t talk about yourself. Don’t talk about your achievements. Don’t fantasize to be too big too much. I come from an Orthodox Jewish background. I never mentioned that on the show. That means that a woman should be small, hide, and be there as a good mother and a good partner. It’s the old way of the way society was. 

There’s just so much power in even saying it out loud.

I rebelled against this whole thing when I was 15 because it was not aligned with the way I felt like I wanted to be. I still have a connection to Judaism. I see the beauty of it and I love the spiritual part of it. I love Kabbalah. 

When you go back and study that, it’s like ancient self-development. Everything you learn in a Tony Robbins seminar, for example, you can find there. I love that part. I don’t like the dogma, I don’t like the rules, and I do think that somewhere in my subconscious mind, there is this young girl that is still shy, still has to be modest, and still has to give credit to everybody else but herself. It’s almost like I’m trying to stretch out of my comfort zone. 

Right now, I’m starting to promote my services on this podcast, which is usually something I’ve never done. We have almost 300 episodes and I have never promoted myself on the podcast. How do you deal with that? Because this is deeper than having a to-do list on the calendar. 

A lot of times, it’s questioning those beliefs like why do I not want to talk about it? What’s stopping me? What’s the worst that can happen? It’s really questioning those thoughts. Is it true that X, Y, and Z whatever you think might happen if you do this, you’ll sound like you’re bragging, you’ll sound like you’re too promotional, or whatever the limiting beliefs are that we tell ourselves? 

A lot of times, they feel very true and real, but questioning them, experimenting with doing it anyway, and feeling the feelings that come up while you do it because there’s so much power in just doing that and moving through the discomfort. 

Stepping into your future version of yourself now and not waiting. Don't wait even if you have to take just baby steps. Click To Tweet

I think of it as exercise. I don’t exercise because I want to go to the gym, but I like the feeling on the other side of the exercise. The feeling on the other side of putting yourself out there, asking for what you want, and all of those things, there’s something about that that will make you want to do it more and more. Does that make sense?

Yes. How did you ask those questions? What was the shift for you? How did that happen?

Getting support and hiring a coach was my thing. A lot of personal development work, moving through all the blocks, and just surrounding myself with like-minded people that I could call, text, or message when I get into those moments, shame stories, and limiting beliefs and be able to talk through it because it’s messy. 

Being able to have that support and really knowing that you’re not alone, there’s just so much to be said for that. When you speak out loud these limiting beliefs that you’re having and then somebody else says, oh, I feel that way too or this is how it shows up for me and then you know that you’re not alone, you’re human, and this is just your human brain trying to keep you safe, it puts it all in perspective. I think getting support would probably be my answer.

Getting support and hiring a coach was my thing.

When you say support, do you have any modalities that you like for healing or for self-support besides having a coach?

Besides having a coach were things like meditating in order to be able to have the tools to move through. I think when you’re a regular meditator, you’re able to move through and then observe your thoughts a little bit more than feeling like you are your thoughts. That would be one.

I’m a huge fan of the EFT tapping, emotional freedom technique. Are you familiar with that?


That is instrumental in moving through blocks. I help clients with that sometimes, but really, that is just something that you can Google, look at YouTube, and learn how to do. It’s so easy. It really helps with anxiety too, but also in moving through these uncomfortable emotions.

I’m also an EMDR fan, so I’ve done a lot of therapy. I’ve had a lot of therapists in my life and I like that form of therapy.

I’ve done EMDR once. I think it was just not the right guy because I did a few sessions and I’m like, I’m not getting anywhere. This is weird.

I think you have to find the right person in all of this. Keep looking until you find one and find your thing. That’s the thing. There are so many different ways. It’s finding what speaks to you and not dismissing it even if that modality doesn’t work, try another one.

Do you think we ever heal, or do we just get better at handling life and becoming resourceful?

Do we ever heal? I think we do.

It’s such a good question. Do we ever heal? I think we do, and then we have to heal or up-level again. There are different levels of healing and it’s almost like shedding. Once you go to the next level, I believe there are upper limits that you have to bump up against, and then there’s another level of healing that has to happen. I do think it’s a continuous journey, but you get better and better at it. The more you practice these things, the easier it is. I think your comeback rate gets better if that makes sense.

I wonder if it’s like peeling layers of an onion to get to the core versus upgrading each time?

Yeah. I think an onion would be better because it is the core.

You peel the onion and then you find that the biggest answer that you were looking for is inside of you. It’s all just an illusion and a distraction.

Yes, totally. There’s something about the connection at your core and your connection to your higher power (whatever that is) that always comes back even with the healing, the different layers, and the up-leveling. I think there’s a bit about connection too. 

Something that has happened to me since I became a mother, especially this year, is going through some turbulence, some difficulties, and some challenges and also finding, seeking, and getting deeper healing. 

There are different levels of healing, and it’s almost like shedding. It’s a continuous journey, but you get better and better at it.

One of my things is to become more genuine and more me. For me, it is taking away the layers, illusion, suffering, anxiety, and fear. Most of your fears will never ever come true, yet we live in those fear states for so long.

It’s true. The turbulent times all serve a purpose, but you don’t see it until you are looking in the rearview mirror. Then, when you look back, you can see, oh, this is why that turbulent moment, and this is why that one. It all builds on each other. I see it as almost like this golden thread throughout people’s lives, but it doesn’t make sense at the time and it doesn’t seem like it’s in service to you at the time obviously. But it is, back to the healing.

You said that this takes a long time. Does it have to take a long time? Are we ever ready to be our fullest potential? I feel like in my journey, where I am today and where I thought I would be, there’s a big gap. So much life, so many miracles, and beautiful points happen in between in my personal life, but when it comes to my career, there is a big gap between where I wanted to be or where I’m not going to be and where I am today. I’m good with it, and I also have the desire to expand.

It all is intermeshed, so it’s you as a whole person. I don’t think it has to take a long time, but I also think it’s not on our timeline. I think there is a greater plan at work here that we can’t even wrap our human brains around. While we might have one ultimate thing that we think we’re going after, it’s really probably bigger than that anyway. Probably, some of the personal healing, turbulence, or whatever had to happen in order to get to what we want. 

There is a greater plan at work here that we can’t even wrap our human brains around.

I see it as a co-creation. Our timelines are minuscule when you compare it to the grand plan, if you will.

Right. One of my coaches told me that it’s like trying to push a tree to bloom in winter. Fruits won’t be as juicy or great. Sometimes you have to take the time to nourish what is missing. 

I’m an Aries. My birthday is coming up and I’m not that patient. I want to have it now. I want it. Then God and the universe is like, it’s not happening yet. It’s not the way you think it’s going to happen.

And then does it end up turning out better than you would have imagined if you look back?

I think so.

I know. That’s the amazing part. That’s the part that’s hard to remember in the moment when you’re in another turbulent time and you’re waiting for something that you want to happen faster. There is something about trusting.

Three years ago, I was in a seminar. They gave us a little pebble thing and they were like, write the word for the next year. My word was trust, and it’s still trust. How many levels of trusting? Trusting yourself, trusting God, trusting myself as a mother.

Our timelines are minuscule when you compare it to the grand plan.

Women especially sometimes struggle with trusting themselves. All of the work that I do, a lot of times, that’s what it comes back to. I’m teaching people to trust themselves.

How did you learn to trust yourself?

It comes back to my cancer journey a little bit. When I was faced with the decisions that I had to make as a breast cancer patient at the time, it was like, I really thought that they would give me a treatment plan. Here’s what you do. They would recommend what comes next. 

They didn’t. At least that wasn’t my experience. They said you could have this surgery, this surgery, or this surgery. It was a mastectomy, lumpectomy, or double mastectomy. They gave me all the statistics and all the information. It’s like, go make your decision. That was really hard for me. I want you to recommend what I do. I have no idea and I’m terrified. I have no clue. Tell me.

I’m actually glad in hindsight they didn’t tell me because that’s not how they do it. It’s probably a good thing because it turned out what I did was I really had to just get quiet. I really didn’t trust that the answers were going to come at the time, but one morning, they just did. I was journaling and I just started to journal about what I want my legacy with this cancer to be. I got really, really clear. I want my kids to remember that I had cancer, and that’s all I want them to remember. That just came to me.

These soul-led goals aren't going to happen overnight anyway, so why not just take little steps while your life is already busy and full, and stop waiting? Click To Tweet

That means so much to me because my mom passed away at an early age. She did not have cancer, but she thought she was going to have cancer. The fears that I remember her having because her mother had breast cancer, I didn’t want my kids to see me always like, oh, there’s another lump. I have another biopsy and I’m waiting for the results. What about pathology? I didn’t want that. That’s what became super clear to me.

Then I knew. It was like, I’m doing a double mastectomy. I just knew, I got clear, and I told my husband afterward. He was like, wow, okay, that’s a really big decision. Maybe you want to sleep on it. A lot of people had questions about that decision, but I just knew. 

A lot of times in my life at that time, I didn’t know, I would question, and I would ask other people, but since then I had that certainty. When the pathology came back, basically, the surgeon told me, wow, you know your body really well because if you would have done a lumpectomy, we definitely would have been going back for a mastectomy. Since there was also a trace on the other side, we probably would have recommended a double mastectomy. 

That’s when I learned, oh, we do have the answers.

That’s when I learned, oh, we do have the answers. If a surgeon had told me one way, it might not have been the right answer. I think that we know or a higher power is guiding us. 

That’s how I learned. It really did have to sink in like that for me in order to trust myself. Then, it’s just little things along the way and little clues where, oh, it does work out when you follow your guidance.

Beautiful. I’m glad you trusted your intuition.

Yes, me too. It’s such a powerful thing. We all have it. Sometimes, we just don’t get quiet enough to hear it.

For me, this year is all about connection. It’s cool. I even do this thing where I know people sway forward and backward, but I never knew how to do it the right way. I just created my own technique where I sway to the right or the left. I just ask my body, is this good or is this bad? I don’t control it. My body just shifts to one side or the other and I get the answer.

I love that.

It’s really cool. Our bodies are very wise. 

Yeah, powerful.

Being late is one thing I struggle with. What is the core of that? How do I improve it? I’m getting better at it. I’m not that bad, but it’s always like, I can be better.

Being late to appointments or on deliverables?

I’d be two minutes late or three minutes late. it’s rare that I’ll be there five minutes ahead of time.

Okay. I would want to ask you, what’s that about?

The turbulent times all serve a purpose, but you don't see it until you look in the rearview mirror. Click To Tweet

I don’t know. I guess I don’t want to look at it. Actually, nothing comes up.

What would happen if you were early?

Maybe I’ll get bored and I don’t want to get bored.

Sometimes, the key is sitting in discomfort, whatever it is—boredom—and challenging yourself. Usually, that’s what growth is, sitting in the uncomfortable and putting structure in place. 

There’s something about moving through uncomfortable emotions. That’s always important when you’re trying something new, but then having structure too. I’m going to have a plan if I get there, I’m five minutes early, and I am bored like bringing a book, setting an alarm that’s going to tell me when I need to leave, or hold me accountable. I have to leave for this appointment half an hour early. Remind me, set a timer, whatever you need to do.

How do you organize your day? How do you become very productive throughout the day? Do you plan the night before, a week before, a month before, or a year before?

This has to be unique to each person. I’ll tell you what I do, but I think everybody has their own version of this. My biggest thing for everyone is to plan your day before you step into it. I don’t actually care if it’s a month in advance, a week in advance, or a day in advance. You need to find out what works for you. What works for me is a week in advance. 

I do it on Sundays and I plan it out on my calendar. I have a paper calendar and I have an electronic calendar which I know is overkill, but I like to do both. I like the paper calendar almost as a journaling exercise to just see, does it all fit in? Will it all fit in? 

The key is white space, not to pack in your calendar. Too many people do this. They’ve got this huge, long to-do list and then they’ve got back-to-back meetings the whole day. That’s just setting yourself up to fail.

Growth is sitting in the uncomfortable and putting structure in place.

I guess he’s a little bit of a workaholic. He still does that. Sometimes, he forgets lunch.

That’s super common. I had to train myself out of that, the forgetting to eat lunch thing. I literally write eat lunch and eat breakfast on those time slots.

I did that for him and then I had my assistant do it for him. It worked amazingly for a month. Then he was like, I need this space. Somehow, I can’t force him to put white space on his calendar. It needs to come from within.

Yeah. You need to want to do it. With the eating, for me, I was prioritizing nutrition. In addition to writing on the calendar, I would also plan it out the night before. It’s like, I’m going to have a smoothie for breakfast and know what it is. Know what the item is and have lunches delivered that are already pre-made. I had to do that. That’s what I mean by a structure to force yourself because I have no excuse not to just grab that thing out of the fridge and eat it. It used to be that I would say I don’t know what to have. I don’t have time.

As a mom of two who’s also an entrepreneur, how do you do everything? How do you schedule your time, the kid’s time, and the meal prep time? How do you do everything?

The first thing is I don’t do everything and I have a lot of help. Moms and especially working moms struggle with that. We feel like we need to do everything because maybe our moms did everything, but they weren’t really doing as much as we are.

Envisioning your future self and what that person does in their day-to-day life and living is super powerful. Click To Tweet

There was no email back then.

Yeah. There was a lot of stuff that was different. On Sundays, I do all of that planning, but I really do have a lot of help with it like I was saying with the cooking, a house cleaner, and that stuff. Getting help even with the kids.

Do you have a cook?

No, I use Thistle which is a lunch and breakfast delivery. I only do two meals for one week and night. Most of it is a smoothie and pre-made breakfast things that I already come up with, but I think about it in advance. 

Back to calendaring. On Sundays, I will look at the whole week, plan out the meals, and then my husband cooks a couple of nights a week too. It’s a lot of dividing it all out and having kids help too. 

What can I let go of, and what doesn’t need to be done?

Not expecting that you can do it all is another thing. It’s asking what can I let go of and what doesn’t need to be done? That can be at work too and getting help from people like virtual assistants and things like that. That’s another thing that I help a lot of entrepreneurs with because they will try to wear all the hats.

The key also to calendaring is to plan, really more than just your time planning your energy. It’s thinking about energy management and when you’re going to put things in your day. That’s going to bring you more energy in order to do the stuff like cooking, cleaning, or whatever. 

What does that look like for different people? For some people, it’s exercise, meditation, but actually scheduling that stuff onto the calendar so that you prioritize it, not letting things like email and meetings take up your whole day, and challenging yourself when it comes to, do I have to go to this meeting? Can I shorten this meeting? That kind of thing. The key is energy management, the white space, and getting support.

I was getting support up until three hours ago. My babysitter just left to go to Israel for a whole month. I’m like, this is going to be really difficult. I homeschool my toddler and it’s nice to have the breaks. I also think that he gets more enrichment from being with somebody else other than me all day long. I’ll need to find creative solutions, but maybe I’ll just make it a fun month where we do a lot of fun activities together.

Yes, and expecting less deliverables during that time. There’s something about being realistic about what you’re asking of yourself in that time when you need to be present elsewhere. I think that we spread ourselves too thin and expect too much, and then we beat ourselves up that we haven’t done it when it was too much to expect of ourselves anyway. I see that as a pattern.

When we started talking, you said that one of your superpowers is to talk to somebody and then immediately get a vision of their business. How do you do that? What comes to you? Can you give me an example?

The key is energy management, the white space, and getting support.

It’s normally in the form of, this is my business but what I really want to do is X, like launch a podcast, create an online course, or switch lines of business. I want to move from one-on-one coaching to group coaching or something like that. It will be just a little mention like that. 

What happens with me is like it’s an intuitive hit. That’s where to focus. I just get the chills and know this is where this person wants to be. Then, I’ll just say, tell me more about that. Then, you just see them light up when they talk about that thing that they want to be doing. It’s like, if money and resources were no object, I would be doing this. They light up. 

What I was saying is a plan starts to form like, these are the steps you would take. They have those steps and they actually know the steps. They know what they would do, but they feel like they can’t.

You have to give them some explanation.

Yeah. And know that it’s not going to happen overnight and know that the path might change a little bit as we talked about. We might have a wonderful timeline that we’re attached to and it might look a little bit different. 

I also like to talk about the feeling that you want to feel once you’ve accomplished that is really what you’re after. If you know the feeling that you want to feel once you launch that podcast, for instance, and you start to take the steps towards that, you’re going to manifest that feeling at least. It just might end up taking a different shape, form, or timeline, and being okay with that because what you’re after is the feeling that you want to feel.

Yeah. I’m spot-on. Even when you do a vision board or when you say affirmations, it’s about your emotional state. If you want to say, I’m successful and there’s no emotion that rewires your brain to move forward, it’s not happening. 

Even on a quantum level, Dr. Joe Dispenza talks a lot that when you create the vision in your mind, you’re going to a meditative state, and you see where you want to be, you have to feel the feelings. The science behind his work where the scientists saw that sealed the deal is to be in gratitude for that vision knowing that it’s already happening and thank you for that. Then you attract that. 

Some of the personal healing, turbulence, or whatever had to happen in order to get to what we wanted. Click To Tweet

There’s so much we can do on this physical level and there is also so much more that we are doing on the spiritual level. I think being an entrepreneur is a very spiritual journey. The more you’re connected to the quantum field (even quantum physics) when you look at the thing, the thing appears. When you look at your vision, the vision will manifest, and if you don’t look at it, it’s not going to happen. One of the ways of looking at it and connecting to it is through your emotional state.

Yeah, and the energy behind it. Like you said, I can’t just say, I’m successful. If I don’t believe that, it’s going to do the opposite. I love how Dispenza talks about who you need to become basically. Becoming that person before its reality is really the key.

Who did you need to become?

I think there was something about competence. If I would have said, who do I need to be in order to be that successful business owner or whatever it is, it probably would have been competent. It probably still is competence on this whole other level, and continuing to ask that question with every single goal. Who do I need to become and then what does that person do? Just envisioning your future self, what that person does in their day-to-day life and living that now is super powerful.

That’s one of the biggest questions that I had to ask myself when I manifested my current relationship. Who do I need to become to attract somebody like this? Oh, I need to be more feminine. Oh, I need to be more loving. Oh, I need to be a little more of this and a little less of that. 

It’s not about a laundry list of what I want to attract. It’s about who do I become? When you are becoming, everything around you shifts.

Yeah. Then I can almost turn that into habits. Who you’re becoming, what does that person do on a day-to-day basis? I think that there’s something there that if you continually do, you are becoming that person.

Beautiful. What are your three top tips to living a stellar life?

Knowing that you do have the answers.

I think it will come back to what we talked about with trusting yourself, knowing that you do have the answers, and letting it be uncomfortable like what I was talking about. It’s going to feel messy, but keep going and learning how to move through those uncomfortable emotions. It’s what we were just talking about, that stepping into your future version of yourself now and not waiting. Don’t wait even if you have to take just baby steps.

That’s beautiful. Where can people find you? I know you have a little gift for our listeners.

Thank you, listeners. Remember to trust yourself, just stay in it when you feel uncomfortable, step into your future self now, and have a stellar life. This is Orion, until next time.

Your Checklist of Actions to Take

{✓}Create a quiet space in your life. This will allow your higher self to whisper your soul-led goals. 

{✓}Say out loud your soul-led goals. There is power in speaking out your goals.

{✓}Get support and hire a coach. Surround yourself with like-minded people you could talk to when you get into negative moments, shame stories, and limiting beliefs.

{✓}Meditate regularly. Meditation can give you a sense of calm, peace, and balance that can benefit your emotional well-being and overall health.

{✓}Find a modality that works for you, such as EFT (Emotional Freedom Technique) and EMDR (Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing)

{✓}Trust yourself and your intuition. Always follow your guidance. This is one of the most helpful things you can do for yourself in your life. To trust yourself, all you need is to make a little effort, create self-love, and find the ability to look inward.

{✓}Prioritize your nutrition. Good nutrition ensures that your body has the nutrients it needs to function properly, including fighting off disease. 

{✓}Always plan your day. This will boost your focus and productivity. Planning daily tasks helps you cut through the noise to bring a few critical tasks into focus each day. It gives a sense of purpose and accomplishment.

{✓}Learn to ask for help because you can’t do everything yourself. Asking for help builds connections by allowing others to share their information and resources. This shows people that you trust their ideas, feel competent in their skills, and appreciate their advice.
