Feel Good Friday – BELIEVE in YOU

The truth is, it doesn’t matter who else believes in you – it matters that YOU believe in YOURSELF.

Years ago, I didn’t. I was negative, full of self doubt, too scaredycat to do MANY thingS, and I couldn’t even fake it… I simply didn’t believe in myself.

It’s been a LOT of growth, personal development, leaping out of comfort zones, being gentle with myself, being willing to fall, fail, and fail forward, and aligning myself with people who only want to raise me up!

And through this journey that’s extended over 4 years now, I’ve become the biggest believer in myself. I KNOW I can do hard things. I KNOW I can rise above, and I KNOW I am worthy of good things.

The power of believing in yourself is simply unparalleled – if YOU are looking for some love and support on YOUR journey, I’ve got you!

It would be an HONOR to crush life alongside of you and help YOU develop YOUR sense of belief in yourself

Transformation Tuesday – Mindset!

{{ TRANSFORMATION TUESDAY }}

Last year during the Super Bowl, things were a little rough if you were a New England fan (which I am)… you probably remember, as it’s still being talked about 😉

I was in an establishment full of people who started to lose a little faith, down by 25 points in the 4th. I don’t blame them; it was ugly. But I was one of the ones that stayed calm, and believed.

Now, I don’t say that to puff myself up or put anyone else down, but rather to show a TRANSFORMATION within {MYSELF}.

See, years prior, sports and trailing scores always put me in a negative mindset. I know, you would think as a diehard New England/Boston sports fan, I would know it isn’t over til its O V E R, as we have seen proven TIME and TIME again. But for much of my life it was hard to keep the faith in that sometimes. Most times…

Last year during the Super Bowl is one of the first experiences where I stayed completely positive, and I think we all remember what happened… we went from a quiet, sullen crowd to a LOUD and RAMBUNCTIOUS one, because we DID come from from down 25 points to WIN the Super Bowl, in truly dramatic fashion, again giving credence to ‘it is NOT over until it is OVER’, 00:00 remaining.

And I get it – it isn’t always {easy} to stay positive, but I’ll tell you this – it sure creates a {{better experience}} than writing them off, being down, and acting defeated before the clock hits 00:00. It wasn’t easy, but I told myself comebacks have been done before; this isn’t over yet. Belichick is a master, oh and I mean, you know who my quarterback is, right?! 15:00 minutes for Brady is like 3 hours for anyone else! Let’s just call a spade a spade – that is THE GUY you want when your down!

Obviously, my staying positive doesn’t affect what happens on the field but again, I created a •M U C H• better experience for myself by BELIEVING.

And I did it again this past Sunday – it wasn’t looking good, and people were starting to get nervous, but not me. I knew things could happen. I knew it wasn’t over. I KNEW we had plenty of time and I KNEW we could do it.

{{BELIEVE}}

And we did, which got us to the Super Bowl! Do I hope this Super Bowl is a little less dramatic? … maybe!

But I also look back and appreciate how far I have come, how much work I have done on my mindset and eradicating my negative thinking… it was a HUGE feat, and I have worked really hard on it, and it’s nice to have such a fond memory of a time when it would have been E A S Y to slip back into my negative, defeatist ways, but nope, I stayed positive!

Sometimes, the biggest transformations take place •WITHIN•.

Thursday Thoughts – Show Up

Every day, I SHOW UP.

Some days I am ALL FIRED UP, and I kick ass, and it goes down in the history of productive days.

Other days, I take maybe ONE step closer to a better me, a better life. But I still take a step, and that step matters.

You are WORTH showing up every day, and every.single.step.matters, no matter how small. Don’t let anyone tell you otherwise!

It is when you BELIEVE, and when you string together these moments, paired with those days that you are just uneffin’stoppable, that you are gonna SOAR.

So WILL you soar? Or are you content to just get by?

Thursday Thoughts – You Can’t Shine On Autopilot!

So many of us fear FAILURE, when really, what we should fear is being in the SAME place NEXT year!

Ever felt like you were on auto pilot? Like you don’t remember how you got from one place to another? Are you wandering aimlessly in your life? Are you leaving it all up to chance?
This life? This is YOUR life. You get ONE. You get one life to LIVE. To experience the abundance this world has to offer. To BE. To FEEL. To LEARN. To ENJOY. To dream and strive, achieve and believe, to LIVE. To be yourself, and who you were put on this earth to be. Fully and unapologetically. Fiercely and fabulously.
You can’t SHINE on auto pilot. You have to choose your direction – mindfully and consciously. You have to choose how you want to feel. You have to strive to feel alive, invigorated, purposeful… FULFILLED.
Want something? Put your intention out there! Claim it by name, ask for it, and GO for it.
 

Thursday Thoughts – Believe

The day you believe there is nothing you can’t do, is the day there truly is nothing you can’t do.

Love this. Belief is like the one ingredient you can’t substitute. Belief is like baking – due to its nature, its precise… if you don’t have the proper amount of certain things, your cake wont set, or your cookies will be flat, so on and so forth. It’s not like cooking, where you have much more freedom to improvise.

When you believe in yourself, you set the mental note for any of those doubts; you put them on notice that while they may try to derail you, you will fail forward and keep on trucking. When you truly believe that you can overcome whatever obstacles are placed in your way, YOU CAN. But without that belief, those obstacles don’t seem scalable. They don’t seem like something you can overcome.

You’ve gotta BELIEVE to ACHIEVE.
