Wednesday Wisdom – Doubt

Like every other human being on this planet, I have bouts of doubt.

It’s normal, despite what anyone tells you!

 What’s MOST important here is that you don’t let it PARALYZE you. You can’t let it overpower your drive and determination.

If you feed into it, it grows legs.

I can’t imagine where I’d be if I let my DOUBTS hold me back!

Acknowledge it, remind yourself you are capable, and then keep going, moving past it.

Doubt doesn’t last. Determination DOES.


Motivation Monday – Famous Hard Of Hearing People

Helen Keller. Thomas Edison. Ludwig van Beethoven. Lou Ferrigno. Juliette Low.
All of these names are well known, because each of these people did AMAZING things. The most amazing of all might be that they all OVERCAME hearing impairments in pursuit of their goals and accomplishments!
I will confess, at a younger age, I thought my own personal hearing loss was a dead end for many things. I didn’t know technology was going to make so many things so much easier, and I didn’t realize that one could still be successful despite the loss of a major sense. The age I lost my hearing is a critical time for self development, and I will confess my sudden hearing loss left me mentally and emotionally crippled for some time.
But that was way back then… this is now!
Someday, I see my OWN name associated with success despite hearing loss. I KNOW I can do anything I want. I know I can achieve anything I set my mind to. I know I will face OBSTACLES, but those are simply my OPPORTUNITIES – to rise, to shine, to overcome… to find a workaround!
I know my hearing loss can’t stop me. If anything, I vow to let it propel me.
Obstacles into opportunities!

Thursday Thoughts – Don’t Let The Start Stop You

A new year looms and many are ready to embark on journeys to better health, wellness, career changes… the possibilities are endless.

It’s the start that stops most people.

Why is the start so hard? Because it marks the beginning of change, of something different.
And sure, that’s daunting and overwhelming… but that’s also how you get going, how you become better, and shine brighter, and grow more.
You really don’t have to be great to start, but you do have to start to be great. And once you are going, you will look back and wish you had started sooner!
What are you waiting for? What will YOU make your end-of-the-year mission to achieve? What powerful momentum will YOU bring into 2017?
Don’t let the start stop you!

Friday Fit Tip – Be Patient

Happy Friday guys! Who’s crushing a workout today!?

Couple of things here… I see this in my groups and such sometimes. The journey to weight loss, or just being healthier, does not at all happen overnight. You don’t blink and suddenly have the body you have always wanted.

It takes time. And sure, it probably feels like it takes a lot longer than it does, but just stay with it. Be patient. Keep going, don’t get discouraged. Trust the process, do the workouts, stick to your clean eating, and just have some faith.

Your hard work WILL pay off — but if you give up, it won’t!

Be Patient


Motivation Monday – Live your Dreams

Dream them, and then LIVE them!

Many of us have today off of work in honor of Martin Luther King Jr day, so it seems like the perfect time to really give our dreams some serious thought, and put some thoughts into ACTION!

dream. do.

A lot of my lifelong dreams have come true recently; buying my own gorgeous home, marrying the dude that at one point in time insisted he would NEVER get married, seeing my businesses and my efforts start to flourish and pay off…

But I’m not done! In fact, I am just really getting STARTED! I have big dreams, big plans, and I expect to achieve big things! I expect this because the only thing stopping me would be myself, and that’s not happening!

Disney said “If you can dream it, you can do it” – and this simple phrase could not be truer. If you can dream it, you CAN do it. If you can visualize it, this means you can manifest it. Sure, the road to achievement is never easy (and you and I both know it wouldn’t feel as good to finally achieve if the path there was easy, right?),  but if it means enough to you that you can dream it, it should mean enough to you that you can overcome any obstacles to achieve it.

Challenges are a test to see how bad you want something. We all spout off things we want, but when it comes time to make some effort, we balk – for whatever reason. If you can walk away from something and it doesn’t phase you, it doesn’t mean enough to you, and you probably don’t truly want it.

As for what you can achieve, well, the Universe agrees – there is no cap! You are your only limit. If you want it, go for it!

What are some of your dreams you are in the process of achieving?
