POSITIVE SELF  “No one will believe in you, if you don’t believe in yourself.” -Unknown “Why fit in when you were born to stand out.” -Dr. Seuss How do you feel about yourself? What do you think of yourself? Do you have high or low self esteem? Many of us don’t have a high opinion or love for ourselves. We don’t see who we are and what we do in a positive light. We miss out on our own greatness and beauty. Maintaining and building high self esteem is important. Creating a healthy self image and feeling self worth is the start to creating a foundation for yourself and your lifestyle.

What is Your Why?

By | Main Blog, Uncategorized | No Comments

PASSION What is your WHY?  We all have a passion, a fire that burns inside, wether it be sports, fashion, education, music, etc. it is an inspiration that drives us. Beyond the scores and stats or the latest and greatest, our passions give rise to our stories and help us overcome obstacles, exhibit sportsmanship and defy the odds to achieve success. Celebrate your uplifting story and take a deeper look into the inspiring lives of your peers. Passion is one of those intangibles that gets us through the good and the bad as well as dictates our success. It allows us to outthink second place. Our success comes from our passion. It conveys that regardless of your position, you can be successful if you have passion for what you’re doing. If something is hard you don’t give in, you apply yourself even more to overcome it. Your drive and your motivation won’t go unnoticed. Although we all have a passion, not all of us realize our passion or drive. We forget the reasons why we do what we love and we lose our motive. Ask yourself why? Why do you run that half marathon?  Why do you train hard everyday? …

Good Morning!

By | Main Blog | No Comments

GOOD MORNING!  “Every morning you have the opportunity to establish another vibrational basis, a sort of set point that sets the general tone of your thoughts for the rest of the day.” -Abraham Hicks  Are you a morning person? Do you press the snooze button? Do you have a morning routine?  “If you want to make your dreams come true, the first thing you have to do is wake up.” -J.M. Power Although you feel tempted to stay in bed, you should try changing it up. It will take time and effort, but it is worth it when you figure out how to get out of bed feeling energized, motivated and inspired. The bed is comfortable, but don’t get stuck in that small moment of pleasure because you will find more enjoyment in the time you spend towards other things rather than staying in bed. Your happiness will start when you get out bed and begin your morning. We need to try and build empowering habits to start our day. Morning rituals are important because they allow us to enter into an optimal state-of-mind that will help stay energized, focused, inspired and motivated throughout the day. You won’t hesitate to get out of…

Zig When Others Zag

By | Main Blog, Uncategorized | No Comments

ZIG ZAG APPROACH TO SUCCESS: BE OPPOSITE & DIFFERENT “Far better is it to dare mighty things, to win glorious triumphs, even though checkered by failure…than to rank with those poor spirits who neither enjoy nor suffer much, because they live in a gray twilight that knows not victory nor defeat.” -Theodore Roosevelt “If you want an average life; copy the masses. If you want an extraordinary life; zig when others zag.” -Unknown In order to be successful you have to go against the norm, be unreasonable and unorthodox. Success does not come from what society considers “popular and acceptable.”  Please excuse me, but I say F*** society, be the exception to the rule, don’t follow the standard and do the opposite of the average person.    Are you lazy? Grow, change and challenge yourself Sacrifice, work and achieve Discipline, commit and take action Empower, enlighten and inspire yourself Meditate and visualize Be enthusiastic   Do you dislike your job? Don’t make a living, create a life Find reasons to love your work or change your career path Are you focused? Focus on your passion Make an effort Take a chance and make a tough choice Live with urgency How…

Motivate Yourself

By | Main Blog | No Comments

MOTIVATE YOURSELF, DON’T FORCE YOURSELF  We all need a little motivation once in a while. To find unique and clever ways of forcing yourself to do things you don’t want to do to help you be productive is exhausting! It’s so much more powerful and invigorating to motivate yourself instead of forcing yourself. Do you have a goal you would like to achieve? Are you having trouble motivating yourself? Remind yourself, remember why you care about it and how much you care about the goal. You are interested, that is why you committed to this specific goal. Helpful reminders and motivators: Create a vision board Focus on how life feels, NOT how it looks Choose progress, NOT perfection Make desktop / phone background Set an alarm reminder Find an App to help you Write a reminder note Create a symbolic reminder Leave out anything associated with your goal Jewelry reminder / tattoo reminder Check-in (find a partner to support you daily) Write about your goal Surround yourself with people who motivate you Bookmark everything or anything you come across that reminds you of your goal Write a letter to your future self Read a book that will motivate you Watch…

Invest in Your Dream

By | Main Blog | No Comments

Invest in your dream, not the money. Chase your dream not paper.  Everyone has a different take on the definition of being rich.  Most of us know in order to “get rich” it requires pure passion and hard work. It is passion itself that makes one’s wealth. However, not everyone understands, some people are unable to recognize the meaning and have a false representation of what it means to be rich. Be wealthy, not rich. Make sacrifices. Find your passion. Happiness is at the end of the tunnel. Don’t chase money. Money should not be the core of your goal, it should be the idea of your success. Hard work and passion will bring you success and your success is what will lead to your wealth. Understand the order and realize the end goal. Your ambition is what will separate you from being “rich” and actually make you wealthy. Know what you want now and go after it, the benefits will come later. Take the risk, that is what makes the difference between you and other people. Success comes from dream seekers not cash chasers. You won’t get rich if you just see $$$ signs. Financial success can be a…

Less is More

By | Main Blog | No Comments

Do you have too much going on?  Do you feel like a hot mess?  Is your life filled with too much stuff?  So many of us live life with a lot of stuff and we know it. You can feel the load and stress of your own clutter. We are tired of cleaning, managing and organizing our chaotic lifestyle. Our rooms are messy, drawers won’t close, closets are disarray, and our garages are filled with everything, but our cars. The evidence of our own clutter is surrounding us. As our clutter constantly continues to grow we are slowly suffocating ourselves. It distracts us from what we should be focusing on and the things we need to be taking care of in our lives. We lose our passion and potential to excel when we don’t have things in order. We should be using our resources rather than letting them take over our lives. You don’t need everything. Live a better life with less. Try it out.  •  Recognize •  Realize how all the stuff you own keeps you from pursuing your dreams •  Create craft •  Experience the joys of generosity •  Learn We can recognize the things we don’t need and…

Stop Settling

By | Main Blog | No Comments

LOW-INCOME LIFESTYLE Are you settling for a low income lifestyle?  Many of us lead a low-income lifestyle with not much breathing room. Some of us have student loan debt, credit card debt, past due bills, other types of loans and things we need to pay off. When we run out of money, it’s gone — there’s no reserve ready. We may not be at the poverty level, but we literally live paycheck to paycheck. We live a low-income lifestyle, we don’t go on extraordinary vacations, weekend getaways, elegant dinners or have the newest technology. We use what we have until it is literally done, we avoid shopping and eat at home whenever possible. Sometimes we get bored and tend to get out of control which causes us to rack up more debt. It takes a while to really adjust and slow down. Until you “slow your roll,” you will not find the time to get rid of your debt and live the life you dream about all the time. No one wants to live a debt and stress filled life. Sweat the small stuff Walk or ride your bike whenever possible Pack food  Get rid of cable Use Coupons Be…
