I do not neglect to do the small things I #CAN do #EVERYDAY.👊
Yes, even on #Sunday
How is any day that precedes your #goals, #vision and #personal #development any less important than another? They all feed into each other, right?
🤔What #actions & #behaviors align with the goals and vision you have?
🤔 What does that look like? What are the #easy things #YOU #CAN #DO? Daily.
🤔 What is your personal brand? For me, being #strong & #embodied are 🔑.
To feel this way internally, I *personally* require daily #gym, #meditation, #prayer, #reading, and #relationship with others – face to face. This also means I’m an early riser to ensure my needs are met.
Doing this enables me to best #serve & #encourage others.
Listen guys, I have so much fun. I go on vacation. I have an adult 🍸if I like, & may eat 🍕🍩in the same day I eat salads & ingest my AM cocktail of nanogreens, fiber etc.
I also #workout on vacation. Every. Day.
I read. Every. Day.
Why? Because it’s #easy! It aligns with my needs, to be at my best. Everyday is #important. *Every* *day* #counts.
What actions can you #commit to start doing #daily to affect your #outcomes? Learn more? Be more active or involved with others? Join a group or brainstorming session? Encourage others?
As individuals, our values and vision are different. And that’s okay! What is not okay is to never stop to determine… what ARE my values? What do I want? What is my vision in terms of what outcomes do I want to produce?
If you don’t stop to think of this, then how can you possibly put into action the behaviors, thoughts, and steps to move in the direction you desire?
You CAN do anything. You can start reading more.
You can start eating foods that nourish your body and mind.
You can schedule time to check in with yourself and meditate or just have kind thoughts towards yourself and others. This is mindfulness and develops presence. Be in body.
You can go for a walk. Or run. Or gym session.
You can call a friend or schedule a meal with family.
To do all the good things you can do, you may have to stop doing some things. Think of any?
Stop saying yes to requests that don’t line up with your vision.
Stop (or reduce) eating junk that makes you sick and depletes your energy.
Stop staying up late wasting too much time on social media – freeing up time to read and enhance your mind, or simply rest.
Stop procrastinating and start preparing for your day/week/month.
Let’s start taking care of these amazing bodies and brains we have by living a life of deliberate intention around our vision & values.
I was asked this question many years ago by a coach. And I couldn’t answer.🥵🤬
I was too lost in the expectations of others, & trapped in my insecurities & self limiting beliefs. In that moment I wanted to give *her* an answer she’d approve of🤯🤫😐
I had #work to do.🤔😔And that’s okay.
This year I am #grounded. I have been doing the work and embracing my #experiences which have shaped me into who I am. The good. The bad. The beautiful. The fat. The ugly. The moods. The silly🙃.
#I #am #me.
Now I can answer that question in SO many ways. As an #affirmation. In generalities. In #tangibles and #intangibles.
Don’t be afraid to be find yourself, be yourself and learn to know & grow in WHO YOU ARE and what.YOU.want.
We have one☝️chance called life…Stop being afraid. Stop saying #sorry.
Today, I ask my clients this same basic question.
In “live” time people get stuck. Many of us are so consumed in what others want or expect from us – we can’t even answer the question without time – so I give it out as a homework assignment- if you will.🤓
A great “end answer” would be to respond (in time) with an #affirmation – even if just for this year.
At 25 years old a #struggling to survive- Conor McGregor declared to his father with utmost #resolve that he *would be* a #millionaire.
In #Outliers, Malcolm Gladwell refers to years of research to share the common thread that makes #TheGreats#great.
A prevalent theme is the 10,000 rule- the idea (not new) is that it takes 10,000 hours of #practice in the pursuit of being great at something to accomplish #mastery, & obtain #desired#outcomes. Many did this in a remarkably short amount of time.
Think #neurosurgeons (4 hours a day over 10 years) then #musicians or #photographers who were late in entering their craft, yet dedicated to honing in their potential through #discipline.
It all begins with the #BELIEF – that they possess within them #desire, #potential & #capacity to achieve their goal.
So, although many start with innate ability then add effort, others *could* achieve #greatness through consistency in showing up. There’s #hope!
Adversely, many who are supremely #talented …waste it.
➡️How to build #Belief in 3 steps:
1️⃣ Grow your #Confidence:”One’s appreciation of one’s own abilities / feeling #certain about the #truth of something”
To see us succeed in connection, emotional intelligence, compassion and self belief – making our crazy world a better place to be.
A world where every day people emerge as leaders in life.
Where simple coaching tools and insight can help develop mind muscle and resilience in times where connection- even to your *own self* and *your* wants, desires and beliefs are snuffed & confused by the all consuming buzz of distraction.

💡Key Concepts to consider: 🔑
🔧Time affluence: We are so scheduled that we find ourselves in time famine, not allowing us time to do things that make us happy- like having coffee with a friend. We also spend more of our precious time in solitude-on social media.
👋The research suggests social interaction ought to be in person with real people – in real life, and this makes our 🧠happy!
🎯Givers Gain: I learned this popular Mantra well through years of business networking in BNi… 🤓😆
Research suggests doing something nice for others will actually make you #happier than doing something for yourself.
💰Only 10% of your happiness is attributed to circumstances. Thinking a job change will “make you happy” is just not true. So much more of it is the way you frame things and what #BEHAVIORS you engage in. (NLP tools)
🤳80% of 15 year olds sleep with their phones due to social media, reducing sleep- increasing depression and anxiety. #youtoo? 🧐🤔
❗️➡️How to #habits
🏋️♀️ #Exercise: 30 minutes of exercise a day produces the equivalent effect as the increase in mood affected by Zoloft.😲
🗒Start a #gratitude list every night. People who do this report feeling happier and display greater resilience.
📅Block time on your 🗓 for #interaction. Ask a friend or invite a new connection to ☕️ There are so many intriguing people out there! I most recently had coffee with a Instagram friend I’ve interacted with socially for years. It was transformational. Reach out. If someone resonates with you it seems interesting odds are you gave similar interests!
