Right/Wrong Questions

52259355_10101742472643222_8049882487918166016_n.jpg

The reason why we can't find the RIGHT answer is because we are asking the WRONG questions. 

Before I looked into being my own boss I would ask myself....
πŸ’πŸ½β€β™€οΈDo I have What it takes?
πŸ’πŸ½β€β™€οΈWhat if people judge me? 
πŸ’πŸ½β€β™€οΈWhat if I don't know HOW to do this!?
πŸ’πŸ½β€β™€οΈWhat if I'm not as (pretty, smart, fit) enough?

All THOSE questions are...sorry to say but, SELFISH. All of my questions were about ME and my OWN self limiting beliefs were feeding the fire of self deprecation. Jealousy and envy of others soon followed and I fell RIGHT back to where I was. Frustrated, broke & another statistic.😭😭😭
 
I listened to a few audio books and they mentioned asking yourself BETTER questions. So I did just that and I started to see the REAL difference between the answers I got.

πŸ’πŸ½β€β™€οΈCould my friends, family & strangers benefit from what THIS is!?!?
πŸ’πŸ½β€β™€οΈCould a few thousand dollars a month help me & my family? 
πŸ’πŸ½β€β™€οΈCould a few thousand extra dollars per month help other people?!
πŸ’πŸ½β€β™€οΈCould people find hope in what I have to say & learn from my own experiences?
πŸ’πŸ½β€β™€οΈCould I provide that support & community & love for just one person who has been needing this??
πŸ’πŸ½β€β™€οΈ Does the company I partnered with provide EVERYTHING(meal plans, workouts supplements, personal development & a compensation plan) that CAN truly change lives...like it did MINE!?!?!? 

YES. YES. YES.

Those are the right questions y'all. Don't let doubt and fear stop you from living an amazing life. Because that's what THIS is. Amazing... and I'm still learning how incredible this is for not just me, but the people who start to ask the RIGHT questions. βœŠπŸΌβœŠπŸΌβœŠπŸΌ Need my help to show you HOW?

51822188_10101741518929472_1236401551283585024_n.jpg

πŸ’•Happy Valentines Day Friends!πŸ’• For today- I'm not just giving ya 1- or 3 or 5 things I love about myself. I'm doing 10 for our Self Love Challenge & yes, I encourage YOU TODAY to comment below 10 things you love about yourself too(at least one, c’mon. I don't want to play this game alone- bc then I just look narcissistic😜
πŸ’•
My 10...
#1 My eyes. My siblings I might have different dads- but our beautiful eyes mostly come from our mom- and I love that people recognize that about us. <3 
πŸ’•
#2 My Determination. I love that I am driven enough to be my own boss.
πŸ’•
#3 My Rebellious nature. I love that I have experienced more in life because I am curious and also a bit of a rebel & I only SLIGHTLY break the rules ;) Sorry Eddie- I know it drives you nuts. But I have toned it wayyy down fyi πŸ‘«
πŸ’•
#4 My awesome friends. Yes, I LOVE that I have attracted amazingly awesome people into my life- I'm also hoping they pop up and comment- no presh guys. but do it. πŸ˜˜
πŸ’•
#5 My Body. Yep, I said it- I love my Body. I've worked hard to keep it healthy and I'm proud of myself for that. 
πŸ’•
#6 My dance skillz. I do NOT have a dance background- I played basketball in HS but I always LOVED dancing in my living room- still do. I have to credit Zumba A LOT for this one because dancing is what became my passion & gateway into the fitness career <3 
πŸ’•
#7 My coffee obsession. Ya'll know I love my coffee...I'm talking GREAT coffee. I've become a snob in fact- but I'm glad I'm aware of this world & thankful for the driven entrepreneurs who work SO HARD. I love you coffee people. Eddie & I will buy from you forever @squareonecoffee
πŸ’•
#8 My Fun-ness. Is that a word?!!? Well it is now. Yea, I'm fun. I'm freaking 35 & I LOVE to play tag with Eddie, stay up late, play lazer tag, wear winter hats on the inside and have impromptu dance breaks like ANYWHERE. 
πŸ’•
#9 My fashion. I'm def not a fashionista but I love finding comfort & feeling confident - if clothes don't do that for me- I don't want it. 
πŸ’•
#10 My nails. I love my nails- I was a nail biter for almost 3 decades. But nail bite free for over 5 years now!!!!!! 
πŸ’•
Ok, now it's your turn!! GO!!!

Dreaming of the Beach

51571721_10101740823937242_8471213432421482496_n.jpg

I'm dreaming of the next beach trip (in 39 days) and thankful I'm going to be spending it with people who EARNED IT because they know how to live their life to their fullest potential!!!!
And that's what my My Self Care challenge word for the day is .."POTENTIAL". Which if you google it is 'having or showing the capacity to become or develop into something in the future.'

What I LOVE about the word potential is that I LOVE that I see it in others. Most of the time I see it- WAYYYYYYY before they Do. That's what a Coach does- right?! Well to be honest this one took me a while to believe because I FIRST had to believe it for myself!!! Before I thought people with potential were ONLY lucky. They knew the RIGHT people and that's WHY they had potential. 
🀚🀚🀚FALSE. FALSE. FALSE. 

I've come to find that potential is not a word that FINDS people. Just like SUCCESS doesn't fall into someones lap. People find IT by learning something- practicing it daily and sharing it with the world. Remember the whole "10,000 hours it takes to become a Master" saying!?!? Yea, have you worked on your craft or passion 10,000 hours yet?! Oh its not perfect yet!? Listen it never will be PERFECT- because we are always growing & always improving, but only if we are taking REAL ACTION DAILY on it. 

Anyway, that's the convo I had to have with myself- day after day and I realized that sure I'm no pro- but I've gotten better at a few things- and I now see my OWN potential which gives me SO MUCH EXCITEMENT for the future. And I'm not just talking MY future. I'm talking YOUR future. Ya see, I can see what you don't. I see the potential of YOUR life because I'm not looking at your imperfections. I'm looking at what your life COULD be. And the possibilities and opportunities RIGHT HERE, RIGHT NOW is MORE than enough live to your fullest potential. And when you believe that- you also SEE THAT. Truly. Look at the opportunities. Look at the people DOING exactly what you want to do!!! Learn from them and take action. 

I LOVE that I see potential in you. I hope you see it too. And I hope you start living your your best life.....and ask me HOW...... Because, babe, we going places πŸ’•βœŒπŸΌπŸ˜˜

Live, Love & Lift

51969866_10101739985741992_4067638048572047360_n.jpg

I'm gonna LIVE, LOVE & LIFT myself and others UP. And btw, I don't want you to think I'm vain talking about things I love about myself- because it's day 2 in our "What do you love about yourself?' Challenge. So I'm gonna share regardless😘...here it goes. I actually asked Eddie what I should write down for day 2 and he said - "you like to cuddle" . lol. I laughed and said thats not what I LOVE about myself...but wait, maybe it is?? And yes, it's true... I'm a touchy, huggy, cuddly & emotional type of person. I even go into target and have to touch ALLLLL the clothes bc I want to FEEL it ALL!!! But, it's true- I DO love that about me. To me that means that I'm OK with getting close to people and I love that I can be loving and let my guard down, because that wasn't always the case.

I remember when I was little getting made fun of for crying ALOT. (thanks older bro...it's all good, you are nice now πŸ˜˜ but when I was little as soon as I was looked at as weak I SHUT IT DOWN!!!! (as Gordon Ramsey would say ;) 

This harder, angrier side even second guessed 'nice' people because I thought that was fake- and 'cryers' yea, that meant weak to me now too. It wasn't until I got married and Eddie helped me peel back the layers of who I really was. Because yep, I want to feel loved and it's so so important to me now that it's no wonder I'm in the health/fitness/self-care field. I want so bad for others to know it's OK to be your true self. It's OK to love yourself. It's OK to cry. It's OK to be close to people. It's OK to trust people. (The right, uplifting people, btw ;)

I once heard we accept the love we think we deserve. And I couldn't agree more with that saying. Looking back I thought I deserved less - so I accepted less. But I don't anymore. And I'm thankful...so so thankful for that. Yes I LOVE that I am lover of people, and of life. And YES, Life is so much better when we live in that love <3 Isn't that what Living really is about!?!?! To love others(including ourself) regardless of race, size, sexual orientation, age...any of it!!?!? I think YES. πŸ‘­πŸ‘«πŸ‘¬ #loveandbeloved #liveinlight#transform2k19

What I Love About Me

51877502_10101739321523092_192899565517537280_n.jpg

This week in my Self Care Challenge(which you can totes join for free btw,) we are naming one thing each day that we that love about ourselves. And I thought I would share here also. πŸ’•πŸ’•πŸ’•

I love my "Acceptance" of circumstances that I CAN Change and also Acceptance of circumstances I CANNOT Change. When I stopped putting SO MUCH TIME into trying to change things that, well... really couldn't change. I started to focus more of my own energy on what I CAN change. 

My thoughts, My actions and MY reactions became priority #1. And ya know, that's not selfish at all. I became more loving to those around me and I didn't take things so personally either. I finally FREED myself of person who I thought I was and I accepted that I didn't want to be in that negative head space anymore. I accepted a NEW story and began to take a new path in life. I haven't figured it all out- but I love that I allow myself to accept where I was at and look at what I could change. I encourage you today to take a look at what you can do today to accept and love who you are ENOUGH to write a new story for your life too. We have one life friends. Make it a happy one.

Own Your Power

51221402_10101736086536032_1047384309784117248_n.jpg

"Once you OWN your Power,
You can RELEASE your Power." I didn't really understand that concept until day 4 of the POWER 20 min workout today. So what's it mean!?!? πŸ€·πŸ½β€β™€οΈπŸ€·πŸ½β€β™€οΈπŸ€·πŸ½β€β™€οΈIt means breaking the glass and realizing that we ALL have power and if we ONLY think our worth is shown through a mirror then we will NEVER be happy. Instead OWN the power you have IN THIS VERY MOMENT. Own the fact that you CAN do something better for your life. RIGHT NOW. .

Don't let someone telling you that you are ugly or fat or a failure stop YOU....Ask yourself, "Do I want to prove them right by accepting that!?!? Or do I want to break down those walls and release MY power from WITHIN and Truly LIVE!?!?"

There's still time to live an awesome life, now treat it as the WORTHY GIFT IT IS. Because babe. You've got the power!!!! πŸŽ΅πŸŽΆπŸŽ΅(yes cue music here) πŸ˜‰πŸ€©πŸ˜˜ #transform2k19

I am THANKFUL for this life and yes I'm living MY dream & yes, it includes sweaty selfies in my bathroom, so what!? πŸ’πŸ½β€β™€οΈπŸ€£

I am thankful because I NOW see opportunity more than I see failure. I NOW see strength and hope more than I see struggle and blaming. It was not easy to get here but I'll tell ya, it's worth it because I am worth it.

I want you ALL to live your dream also and while some will judge this "Online Coaching" thing (I know I did) I want those of you who are considering it to really think about it. Dream about it. And more than ANYTHING take ACTION on it like I did. It's changed my life in so many ways so of course I'm here to share about it because if I can help one person the same way then YES I WILL TALK ABOUT IT!!!! If you have any questions on HOW to do this too, email me or the Coach you are talking to or comment below and I will send ya some info.#livingthedream #letsdothistogether #noregrets

Don't Defend the Lies

51648848_10101733597464152_3093680843277729792_n.jpg

It could be I'm a little tired from antibiotics and taking 9 days off from exercise...but I want to be really real with ya'll for some #mondaymotivation ...bc you know I love ya πŸ˜‰πŸ˜˜πŸ’— 
Your life won't change if you keep believing the lies you tell yourself.... ok, truth bombs...ya ready!? 
"I don't have time." 
(but you have time for judging people on social media, mmmm, yea ok.") 

"I can't do this because of my genetics." 
(Be honest with yourself. If you changed your habits, wouldn't your life be better?")

"I tried that before and it didn't work" 
(Did you TRY? or did you give it a few days and only kinda showed up?")

"I can't be successful because ....(insert ANY lie)."
Ya see what you did there- you DEFENDED your excuse!!!! That needs to STAHHHHPPPP. LIKE.NOW.βœ‹βœ‹βœ‹βœ‹

If you keep defending the lies and excuses then the real and honest and best version of your life can NEVER be achieved. 

So what do you? You change that voice by recognizing the fear and telling your NEW truth- "That was my past- but NOW I am not defined by it and in fact my Past helped to PUSH me forward to CHOOSE A BETTER TODAY so I will ALLOW my BEST self to show up today by doing __________________(you fill in that blank) you KNOW what you need to do- and No, you might not FEEL like doing it, you might FEAR judgment of others and your past weaker version of you might talk you out of it, but NOT ANYMORE. This new life is worth the FIGHT!!!! So suck it up ButterCup! We got some work to do and some confidence to gain- ya ready!??!? Message Your Coach anytime for workouts, meal plans and personal growth empowerment!!!!!! I believe in you booπŸ’ͺπŸ’‹πŸ’ƒπŸ•Ί#transform2k19 #mindsetreset #letsgethealthy

Your best life is not lived in your comfort zone. It's lived in finding something you love and working hard at it and giving it back to the world πŸ’―%.... I kinda wish I would have realized that at 25 instead of 35, but hey I'll take it, because I'm gonna live the rest of my days happy, grateful and full of love for this incredible gift called LIFE. πŸ’•#6thannualdancefitnesscruise #karmavacations#nassaubahamas #beachvibes
