Cheryl Piper-Snyder is a Remarkable Women from Waynesboro, PA. She is a business and executive coach, as well as a holistic and HeartMath coach. Her real passion is helping others live whole and full lives, and so her training and experience meets people in whatever realm they are – business or personal – as she helps them to grow and thrive.
I found it fascinating to learn about the “brain, mind, heart” connection from Cheryl, and how those intangible emotions can be visually tracked and measured. In tracking, we feel like we can better control them instead of just reacting and feeling at a loss. Cheryl helps people get to that state of control, calm and resilience.
She says that one of the biggest challenges in life is when we are in the middle of things that seem to be spinning out of control. It’s important to remember that those experiences are leading us to the “next best thing in our life.” We want to allow ourselves to slow down instead of create such a busy life that we are not able to take that control and find that time of reflection and calm.
In addition to Cheryl’s success tip of “Keep Learning,” I appreciated her encouragement to “Judge Less.” Instead of judging others, we can offer compassion which builds trust and makes communication just easier overall. We don’t do well as humans when we are responding to each other out of fear, and unfortunately, that is what happens when we give off a feeling of judgment. It shuts down any flow, creativity or openness between us.
Cheryl recommends several books and websites:
- Dr. Joe Dispenza – Breaking the Habit of Being Yourself; You are the Placebo
- The Biology of Belief – on epigenetics and how what we believe affects our body and our life
- The Power of the Heart
