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!

Be Bold Because You’re Called To…

Their insecurities shouldn't affect how you show up. Period.

There's always going to be that ONE person that projects their fears, anxiety and insecurity on you.

They will leave the comment.
They will thumbs down the video.
They will send you the email.
They will share their unsolicited thoughts about you, to you because it makes them feel better.

Hear me when I say this... There will always be people in the world who don't get it.

There will be people who are triggered by your success, boldness, courage, light and people who feel the need to tell you all about it because it soothes their ego to do so - know that, bless them, and move on. It has NOTHING to do with you.

As a leader, unfortunately, you will get to be on the receiving end of some not so nice things...not saying it's fair. Not saying it's right. Just saying it is.

So often, I work with people who are afraid to speak out and show up because of this - I am not exempt btw.

I wrestle. I hesitate. But here's the thing... I don't let it stop me.

Other people don't get to dictate how I show up and how I share what I've been led to share.

Other people don't get to be in control of how It makes me feel to stand on truth and courage.

Other people don't get to have that much control of my life. I mean... Come on! I'm probably not even talking to them anyway.

And so it is with you...be bold because you're called to. Show up because that's part of your service.

Cheers to how you're showing up today, my friend! I'm proud of you!
