NO to Racism!!!

RACISM!!!!! I hate it! 😡

Thank you all for having this conversation with me and coming with an open heart.⠀

Here's what others have said: "Not one video that I have come across thus far has done what your video has I hope it goes viral for the sole purpose that I know more people need to hear it" - D. ⠀
⠀ 

"Dear Tracy, thank you so much for the recent live stream you hosted. It was by far the greatest informative live stream I have watched. Thank you for risking your platform, I feel it was a risk worth taking that will only build your following. 'I know that we are smarter than this' --- we are! Your voice is powerful, if you were running for office I would vote for you as you are a change maker." - S. ⠀

"The greatest video I've watched so far on BLM" - W. ⠀

"Tracyyyy! Your live was so good. Thank you so much for speaking to these topics. They have come up in so many conversations I've had and I am usually so stunned it's even an argument that I don't know what to say. I really appreciate how well you compiled research and explained how it fits into our context." -B. ⠀

I've posted the video down below for those of you who haven't had the chance to watch it.

If you need points to help explain to loved ones who just don't get it.... 

If you are the one who just doesn't get... 

If you're just tired and need a resource to point people to...

Black Lives MATTER!

Checking in on my STRONG friends.

How are you doing?

Sounds like a loaded question. But with all that's going on right now, sometimes its the right one.

As COVID wasn't enough 😫

Watching videos of #AhmaudAsbury and #GeorgeFloyd, hearing about #BreonnaTaylor, and FEELING all that comes with it. It is a lot in a very short amount of time. Its compounded grief and anger and emotions that I cant even begin to express. I know many of you feel the same.

Checking in on you because, if youre reading this, you're probably a leader in some capacity. And people look to you and lean on you to be a voice of reason, a light in the dark, a beacon. And thats heavy weight to carry.
Personally, I find myself teetering between what seems to be a slight depression (because I have no other words to categorize it at the moment) and outright rage.

I'm thankful for a community that allows me to do that. I've spent the last week or so having  many conversations. I have had many crying sessions by myself and those around me.

I have tried several times to film videos of my own thoughts. I've tried to record podcasts to get it out there but I find that I either start crying to the point where my words are incoherent or my words become destructive. Neither of which is helpful.

I have shared a number of resources, posts, and ideals on IG stories. From those whom I felt have been able to articulate what I'm feeling in a more coherent way. I'm in awe of those who have been able to be so eloquent in this season. Lemme tell you something...when it comes to this particular subject matter, that is NOT my gift 🤣

I've had countless private conversations. But... I understand that my public platform carries weight. And so, I will ABSOLUTELY be saying something.

And just so we are clear - #blacklivesmatter

So whatever form it takes...thats the message.

So as I gather myself and my thoughts, I wanted to reach out to you and let you know that I grieve, I mourn, I hurt, I cry. this is very real for me as a black woman, as an American, and as a human being! But I am also letting my voice be heard, as should YOU!

Make Your Choice TODAY!

I had no IDEA I was doing this!

When I started making YouTube videos 10 years ago, I don't think I actually knew what could happen. I don't think I really knew where it would go. I just knew that in the moment it was what I wanted to do and it felt like the right step for me. And that's what life is all about! Its just a series of choices.

A decade later, here we are! But to think it all started with ONE decision to do things a little differently.

I didn't know anyone making YouTube videos back then. I didn't know any entrepreneurs. I didn't know anyone who was a "personal brand" - pretty sure that wasn't even a thing.
 
But what I did know is that I felt called to make a move and I just did it. Apprehensively. A little ignorantly. But also unapologetically.

I don't really know any other way to do it if I'm honest.

In college someone told me, if you want to have an amazing life, learn to listen to the voice of God and do exactly what He says.

Sitting on my bathroom floor, filming that first video, I had no idea then that i was building what I have now. But I was aware that I was honoring God by doing what He called me to do in the moment that He called me to do it. And when you can learn the art of that...your will live the most amazing life!

What are you called to do RIGHT NOW?

Like A Boss

Storytime... First, that last bit was a nod to what the kids are saying these days. Lol 😂
😂
😂 they slay me!

On to the story. When I was in grad school, we took thing learning test. Basically determines a learning style. 95% of the people in my class were what's called "reflective learners" - meaning they needed time to process, think about it, etc.

I was one of 3 people who actually are the opposite. I am an active learner. And when I discovered this... Ya'll! My whole life made sense. Sitting and thinking about is NOT me... At all!

I don't wanna think, I just wanna do it and figure it out as I go. Now, I'm not saying this is always the right way to go about life, but... I will say from experience, in my own life and the people I coach... Decisiveness is a HUGE contributor to success.

The highest earners are the fastest action takers. Period. 👆🏾

Forbes, Business Insider, INC Magazine - every major publication, ever major guru says the same thing.

Action requires trust. It's easy to say you trust God, but... Actions speak louder than words my friend. Staying stuck, overthinking, all of that... It's a lack of trust more than anything. Trust God. Trust yourself. Do the things.

Action requires movement. You can meditate all day, you can say the affirmations, journal til the cows come home. I teach all of those things. But they are tools designed to lead you to divinely inspired action. If not, then what's it all for?

Action requires support. Idk who told you that you had to do it alone...because I definitely don't teach that! Lol. Get help!

Stop Competing With Other People… Your Only Competition is YOU!

I'm just gonna leave this right here.

We all compare. I mean, we are human lol. And we see sooooo much these days. We are literally bombarded with other people's wins everyday. And it makes us wonder why we can't have it, in the way they have it, at the same time they have it, and at the level they have it.

I always say I'm a pretty self-centered #entrepreneur lol. Meaning, I am pretty good at staying in my lane. I've learned to trust myself, trust God with what He's given to ME! And make my moves accordingly.

While it's rare that I find myself wanting something someone else has, I'm not immune to comparison it is from time to time. But thankfully, I can very quickly snap back to my own version or reality. Because the truth is... I really only want what I am meant to have in the way I'm meant to have it.

You may see other people live at a level you desire, but the truth is, you have no idea what they had to go through to get there.

You have a destiny. You have a level of success that is meant for you. You have a future version of yourself that is greater than what it is today, but if you keep wanting someone else's life, you can very easily get lost in your own journey.

So... When comparisonitis rears its ugly head, here are some things to remember. 

>>Competition assumes that everyone has trained the same way. And life isn't that way. You have experiences, gifts, talents, education, etc that, when combined, creates a unique playbook. No one else has what you have in that regard. And you don't have anyone else's.
>>Competition requires metrics. Success isn't always measured in metrics. Only a fool looks at success based solely on numbers.
>>Competition puts the focus on the wrong person (ie someone that's not you!). Use that energy to focus on yourself - stop worrying about what Susan is doing down the street.
>>The biggest thing... Comparison robs you of joy. You get no fulfillment from comparing yourself to others. There's no true satisfaction, other than proving your ego to be right. Comparison is a distraction from what you are truly meant to be in this life. So... Just stop!

You have your own greatness inside of you. Time to let that out! ❤️

Why Perfectionists Make Bad Entrepreneurs

I'm sure some "Karen" is gonna be triggered by this... But it still needs to be said.

I've been doing this work for years. And perfectionism is one of the biggest roadblocks to success when it comes to entrepreneurship.

They want it all to be perfect before thy launch anything. And since... 

💥 Newsflash 💥...

It's never going to be perfect they just never launch.

They don't launch a business.
They don't launch a course.
They don't launch a workshop.
They don't launch a book.
They don't launch themselves.

Oh... But people love to theoretically make plans. I mean, give them a piece of paper and a they will go to town writing it all out.

When I give people workbooks to help them plan, they are all over it!

When I say it's go time... Completely different story.

I watch people sit on genius all. The. Time.

>>> Waiting for the right time.
>>> Waiting for the right equipment.
>>> Waiting for the right # on the scale.
>>> Waiting for the right $ amount in their bank account.

I can go on and on. I've heard it all at this point.

The right time is now. Cuz now is all you have.

And the power to decide is always yours!

Meanwhile, this video is available on demand, on my Facebook page, so head on over!
