p.s. Summer Body Challenge Announcement Below
Today I want to talk to you about one of my favorite quotes of the moment.
“You have the power to change your life. At any given moment”
This one means a lot to me because a lot of us get stuck living lives we think, and KNOW can be better. Whether it’s a more fulfilling career, a better financial state, more meaningful personal relationships – a better body, increased confidence. And this applies to AL L of us, unless your life is perfect, and if it is, please rename yourself God and share your secrets.
Why do we get stuck? Because more often than not, the greatest things require pushing the envelope, getting outside of our comfort zone and making sacrifices that aren’t easy, so we default to stay within our comfort zone, or a place we feel is safe.
You have to take a moment and remove yourself from the situation and understand that you do have control over your life.
And ask yourself, what do you want more? It’s ok if you are content with where you are. But if you’re not you need to put your own power comes into play.
YOU are the only one in your life who can make things happen for yourself.
You just have to want it and want it bad enough.
We use excuses to shield us from taking chances on the unknown, or doing things that make us uncomfortable. We use excuses to avoid the risk of failing.
And…that becomes a barrier to achieving your own success.
You are holding yourself back!!
Why would you sabotage yourself like that?
Why are you scared?
If you want to live deeply and fully, you have to be ok with all that comes with it . You will fall, you will break bones, bruise your heart, lose your breath – but to me, it’s worth it for long term happiness. And to me happiness and success are one and the same.
I hope you like these motivational pep talks. Let me know if you want to see more! It was fun to film.
