Doing Something for the First Time…

When was the last time you did something for the first time?

Yesterday was my first time presneting in front of a group of people. I was not behind the scenes, or off camera, and it wasn’t only audio.  I was live and up in front of the room!  It is a great feeling to have taken the step.  Personal growth feels good!

Believe in yourself and step out of your comfort zone!  Only you can be the best at being you.  Although there is improvement to be made, the most difficult part is over after you’ve taken the step.  Now just keep the momentum going and let nothing stop you.  You have to have a success mindset.  First you must believe it, then go out and do it.

I strongly believe in investing in myself and my self development for my personal life as well as for the success of my business.  There is always something to learn or someone to learn from.  I am always a student.  It doesn’t matter if it is reading, listening to audiobooks, watching webinars or researching videos on YouTube.  Just keep learning and growing.

There are people that I want to know that you can do it no matter what others tell you, but what is most important is what you tell yourself.  Be careful who you listen to, including YOU!

I was very pleased to have family members at our event as well.  A big part of my WHY is to be able to do things with and for my grandchildren that I may not have been able to do with my own.  And having them there with us yesterday was a blessing!  #gratefulheart

Happy or Unhappy

Are You Happy?

This morning, while reading How to Win Friends and Influence People by Dale Carnegie, this sentence (I’m sure there’ll be more) stood out to me.  “It isn’t what you have or who you are or where you are or what you are doing that makes you happy or unhappy.  It is what you think about it.” 

It made me think about how some of us go about our day and not even acknowledge one another, let alone smile.  
Whether it be the person at the toll booth, the cashier at your local store, or just someone sitting next to you on your commute to work, sharing a simple smile can help change their mood, and yours.  If it makes it worse, well then that’s an entirely different issue.  
SMILE!  Someone needs it!

“Nothing that occurs in life is random or without purpose. Lessons were found within each event in our lives that, positive or negative, ultimately instilled a peaceful mind in us.”

Lion or Gazelle

You can’t outrun your fear – you have to face it.  Whether you’re the lion or the gazelle, fear of being killed or fear of starving, you have to face your fear and do what needs to be done…

Have you been trying to achieve a goal and are not getting the results you’re looking for?  Sometimes while keeping focused on the process we have to adjust the methods used to achieve that goal. 


Stand Up And Be Celebrated

What’s holding you back?  

Are personal challenges getting in your way?  For example, do you struggle with feeling you don’t deserve the best life has to offer?  Do you find yourself feeling only tolerated instead of being celebrated for being the best you that you can be?  Guess what, you’re not alone, but don’t let that stop you from working on your goals and focusing on your dreams.  Work on your mindset daily.

Do you have family or friends that don’t support you?  Guess what, so do I.  Will that stop me?  Not a chance.  Because they don’t support what I’m doing doesn’t mean it’s not worth doing.  It’s my journey to travel, not theirs.  Don’t let anyone or anything stop you from working towards living a better life – a life you deserve to live.  Focus on your own journey.

What I have learned while working my plan and following my own journey is that I have to step out of the role of letting fear (whatever shape or form it may come in) stop me from what I am here to do and embrace the greatness within me.  Your dreams are within your reach.

We must fill our cups first before we can serve others.  One way we do that is working on our self development daily.  As you do that, share the value you learn with others along the way.  Invest, learn, teach…

There may be some out there sitting back waiting to see us fail, but you know what we do?  We kill ’em with success and bury them with a smile!

Let the old baggage go so you can be free to accept the gifts life has to offer!  I DESERVE IT – YOU DESERVE IT!  Now let’s get it!!!



Do you deserve a pat on the back?

Of course you do! Celebrate your achievements, big and small. Baby steps count as much as giant leaps, IMO!

I recently accomplished one of my major personal goals, and it feels GOOD!

Don’t forget to reward yourself for your hard work. Don’t get so stuck on what you didn’t get done that you overlook what you have accomplished!
