You have 86,400 in your bank account and someone stole $10 from you, would you be upset and throw it all of the $86,390 away in hopes of getting back at the person who took your $10? Or are you just going to move on?
TOTALLY MOVE ON...
So I mentioned this to say, we have 86,400 seconds in EVERY DAY and we allow others to steal 10 seconds of our happiness and we focus 86,390 seconds trying to get back at them. Or even worse we allow seconds or minutes of unpleasure ruin our entire day!!!
You get stuck in traffic and now you walk into work with a bad mood and everything else seems to go down hill from there. Why do we spend so much time dwelling on what did or did not happen?
You woke up this morning and didn't go to the gym, so now your going to beat yourself up all day...feelings like a failure because you missed one day! WHY? WHY? WHY?
You didn't make it in the morning...what at home workout can you do as a substitute?
We need to stop focusing on the problem and look at the SOLUTION!
Acknowledge what has happened and MOVE ON!
You can not get your morning back, so why waste the rest of your day?
Do not allow others negativity dampen your day!
ONLY YOU HAVE THE POWER TO CHOICE HOW YOUR LIFE WILL GO!
STOP GRANTING OTHER PERMISSION TO CONTROL YOUR DESTINY!!!
YOU DETERMINE THE SOLUTION TO ALL YOUR PROBLEMS!
YOU HAVE THE POWER TO CHOICE! SO MAKE A DECISION THAT YOUR FUTURE SELF WILL BE GRATEFUL FOR!!!
HOW WILL YOU USE YOUR POWER?
Four words to my 17-year-old self: You Are Good Enough!
Wait! Hold Up!
What is our big obsession with the past?
Why do we focus on the past "mistakes" and what we wish we knew. And instead, focus on the present!
We tend to concentrate on the past and all the things we could've done differently while forgetting the present and future!
With all the things you know NOW what are you going to do!
Give that same advice to the person: you are TODAY and take action.
So when someone asks me what information would I give to my younger self--I'll remind them that I'm still a work in PROGRESS and only have advice for the person I am TODAY!
And that's YOU ARE GOOD ENOUGH!!
What advice do you have for the person you are TODAY?
Because if we're honest...at your core, you know what you need to be doing! You just need to take action!!
So this weekend I decided to take ACTION! One of the reasons I love writing so much is because it allows me to hide behind my words on the page. But to be successful in the 21st century, you need to show up on VIDEO!!
So I did my 2nd ever live stream video on Facebook and guess what...it went VIRAL!
I received over 3.1k views, 36 shares, tons of likes and messages!!!
It felt AMAZING to be appreciated for my honest. I told the story of how I got motivated to start my business.
A brief refresher: I got dumped and couldn't let go out the "past" and started self-sabotaging...so I started a coaching business.
I help women end their vicious cycles with their bad habits! I specialize in procrastination, self-sabotage, excuses, doubt and find a balance between life and business.
Check out the video below and tell me what you think! And how you're going to take action!
So my message to you today is that YOU ARE GOOD ENOUGH! I lacked confidence, and my ability to show up powerfully in that message indicates that I am good enough! That video despite the views or shares proves to me that I can face any fear! And so can YOU!!!
So reminder yourself DAILY that YOU ARE GOOD ENOUGH!!!

Procrastination is the KILLER of DREAMS
And I was living proof of this everyday of my life. Until I decided to forgive myself for my previous mistakes. Until I decided to forgive myself and focus on a brighter future.
Procrastination: the act of delaying or postponing something.
I've spent the past 3 years of my life procrastinating and making excuses as to why I couldn't complete a task.
-I dropped out of college (numerous times)
-I stayed at a job I hated for 3 years too long
-I didn't start my business when life handed me lemons
-I spend too many hours browsing the internet
Every time I would get some momentum going and fall off a bit, I would beat myself up about it and quit all together.
I was so focused on dwelling on the negative that I wasn't allowing myself to see the progress I've made and celebrate!
Everyone procrastinates but no one seems to do anything about it!
They just complain and continue the negative thinking that they can't stop.
As humans we tend to beat ourselves up about all the things that did not go right in life and it affects how we face each day!
I could not live in Utopia because I was busy digging the ditch to burry myself.
So I'm asking you to forgive YOURSELF for the mistakes you've made in the past before you learned the LESSON!!!
Forgive yourself for the lack of knowledge and build from there.
Forgive yourself because you gain nothing from dwelling on past mistakes.
Everyday for the past 6 months...I've been forgiving of myself and fully committed to my dreams!
-I started my coaching business (my clients have been getting results from my systems)
-I re-enrolled in college
-I eliminated my daily distractions
-I complete my To- Do List
I forgave myself and I use every opportunity I have to make my future better!
Remind yourself EVERYDAY: You Are Worthy of Forgiveness! (Repeat as many times as needed)
Forgive yourself and it will make a world of difference in how you face new situations because you will no longer fear failure or change.
It used to amaze me how quickly we could forgive others and never ourselves.
So NEW MONTH= FRESH START
Comment Below and say: I Forgive Myself!!
PS: I love a fresh stat and I want to help you end your relationship with your bad habits. So I'm offering 2 (30 minute coaching sessions) for the price of ONE! A $80 Value, only for the month of OCTOBER! So let me know if your 150% committed to change!
My goal in life is to be as rich
I've always said I was going to be a millionaire. My goal was to have 1 Million dollars in the bank by age 35! When a friend asked me why stop at a million because once you spend a dollar, you're no longer a Millionaire. Which got me to thinking...why do we think small. If I'm giving myself 10 years to create such wealth, than why not shoot for 10 million.
You can never THINK TO BIG!
People are always talking about what their passionate about but I've always felt like passion is just first gear. Being hungry is setting your mind to a destination and heading there full throttle with a full tank of gas.
What are you BAT SHIT CRAZY about? What keeps you determined NO MATTER WHAT?
Hunger means that you want it so badly that any and everything else around you is irrelevant. The desire is so strong and the fire within can not and will not be tamed!
Staying hungry is a critical to your existence because it's what you crave.
Opportunity is missed by most people because it is dressed in overalls and looks like work.” Thomas Edison
Start Small! Think Big!.
Hunger Eliminates Failure
Courage is going from Failure to Failure without losing enthusiasm- Winston Churchill
When your hungry for success no matter how many times you "fail" or reach an obstacle you will keep going because the end result is your goal. You can hit a brick wall a thousand times but you'll keep pushing. Nothing will stop you!
A person who is HUNGRY is 1000% committed to their goals!
Hunger Fuels Solutions
My Grandmother always told me to focus on my WHY and the How would come later. When you're hungry for success you will find a WAY! You will create a way out of thin air because you are so focused on the dream. So to you NOTHING is IMPOSSIBLE!
Anybody can possess a skill but it takes hunger to get the job done!!
Hunger breeds Focus
Ever heard of the saying "tunnel vision" well people use this as their greatest weapon. The only focus is the dream and how to get there. They are running with blinders on and can only see straight ahead. The hunger keeps there attention, there are no distractions, there is no jealousy.
A person who is driven and hunger understands that a house is not built overnight but by getting dirty and committing to the hard work. Laying each brick, one right after the other and the longer they focus the bigger the house.
So my question to you is: Are you HUNGRY? Are you willing to commit to your dreams 1000%
Monday Night, my wish was granted and I got to see Adele at her final night at Madison Square Garden. I gave up watching the debate on tv, to see what the hype was all about in her 6th SOLD OUT Night in NYC. And I must say I was not disappointed. I left the stadium that night, a TRUE FAN!
I mean of course I have Adele songs in my Break-Up playlist, which coincidentally I listen to all the time, despite my emotional state. But it was something about actually seeing her perform live that, took my breath away and added a deeper meaning, to each song she performed.
Also, at the end of the show a burst of confetti was sprayed into the air but from my seat (far from the stage lol) it was difficult to experience because confetti wasn't coming my way. However, as we got up to leave a little strip of paper flew into the seat next to me. When I realized the confetti, possessed quotes from Adele's songs. And here is the one I caught.
Music is therapy and although I may not be experiencing a breakup at the moment, this lyric spoke to me, pertaining to my life and business. Regrets and Mistakes are just memories, however life goes on.
So here is my new interpretation of a few of my favorite Adele tracks, as it pertains to life and business.
Remedy(Album 25): When the pain cuts you deep
When the night keeps you from sleeping
Just look and you will see
That I will be, your REMEDY
Meaning: Life sucks sometimes and you're going to be hard on yourself. So you need someone in your corner, who is going to support you and be your REMEDY! You need someone who will remind you how AMAZING you are, even when you don't believe it yourself. Just as others can point out our flaws, they can also compliment, everything that is GREAT about YOU! So when your in pain or need a shoulder to cry on...who will be your remedy?
Send my love (to your new lover)Album 25 : If you’re ready, if you’re ready
If you’re ready, I am ready
Meaning: I am professing to the world that I am ready to live an abundant life. Abundant wealth, health and happiness. I have done the mindset work and now I am ready to reap the benefits of my hard work. They always say "a mind must arrive at your destination first in order for it to become possible". So my mind has arrived!!!
Water Under the Bridge (Album 25): If your gonna let me down
Let me down gently
Don't pretend that you don't want me
Our love aint water under the bridge
Meaning: Dwelling on pasts events and/or situations is water under the bridge and should be left there because they serve no purpose or possess any value. The past should be of no concern to your future because the only thing you should be taking with you is the lessons you've learned.
Set Fire to the Rain (Album 21): But there's a side to you
That I never knew, never knew
All the things you'd say
They were never true, never true
Meaning: I'm setting fire to all the self-doubt, I've ever felt. I will watch it burn because I am now empowered and ready to wear my confidence as a badge of HONOR!
Just because it's not happening
I cannot tell you how many times, I've heard people beat up on themselves because their not happy where they are in life. Yet they never seem to notice the great things they have going on. So I'm here to take you Back to the Basics!
So you can throw out that New Years Resolution/ Old Tired To Do List! It's time to start fresh! It's Monday and it's time to take back control of your life!
Since we were young people have been constantly trying to program our minds to different beliefs. People are always telling you what to do and how to feel.
Going Back to the basics
Back to the Basic:
1.Create Daily Morning Ritual!
In reality creating healthy habits aren't as exhausting or difficult as it sounds and makes a world of difference. Each day the choice is yours to replace a nasty habit with a positive one. And each day is a fresh start and will eventual become a no brainer.
Wake up 30 minutes earlier. I noticed with most people, they start off the day wrong. They don't work out, don't eat breakfast and don't do mindset work. How can have a good day, if your running around like a chicken with their head chopped off every morning. You either end up late or forgetting something or stuck in traffic, so now you've allowed this rough start to dictate the rest of your day.
30 minutes each morning can make a world of difference. Pre plan your outfits at night! Have the kids lunch packed! Figure out ways to make your morning a smooth transition.
Every Successful Person has a MORNING RITUAL
2. Declutter: Out with the old, In with the NEW!
The fall has arrived and it's time to declutter. Decluttering is not only for the SPRING and it needs to be done more often. The more you remove the "junk" you no longer use, the more you open yourself up to receive the things you've prayed for.
I use to have clothes from 10 years ago, that I know I'm never going to wear but I've become attached to things and in reality it's taking up much needed space. Clean out your closets, kitchen cabinets and remove all the excess "junk" you haven't used in over 6 months.
3.Leave your troubles on the DANCE FLOOR!
Nothing makes me happier than dancing around in my living room listening to great music. I can enjoy it with or without anyone around. And I just let the music soothe my soul and fix any troubles I be experiencing. I will pour my soul into an Aretha Franklin, Whitney Houston, or Adele. Or if you need to sweat it out, turn on some Beyoncé, Madonna, Britney Spears or Lady Gaga and dance, dance, dance! Make music your therapy.
