The cookies are on the top shelf…

A mentor of mine from back in the day used to say this all the time!!! It stuck with me. It was a nod to living a life of excellence.

💯You're allowed to have high standards.

💯You're allowed to live at high levels of excellence. As a matter of fact, you should.

💯Love yourself enough to know you can have it and you deserve it. ALL!

And that word "deserve" can be very triggering. Because most of us (myself included) weren't taught that we deserve good things. Good things were a gift from God, and we should just be happy we get what we get. Don't say nothin. Don't ask for nothin. Don't rock the boat. Be content. Period. 🤢

It took me years to understand what God's grace, God's love and God's generosity really meant in my life. That's a whole story in and of itself - lemme know if you wanna hear.

Because once I got it... I got it! Shift happened!

Getting to choose how you want to live life is a gift - we all get it. Few exercise it. Its a conscious choice.

So...This is my encouragement to you to choose. Set a higher bar for yourself. Because a higher bar is available. Don't settle for mediocrity when limitless possibilities are available!

You can be happy.
You can have more.
You can live the life you want.

But you gotta become the person who knows that those things are meant for them...thats where the cookies are 🙂

Shout out to @mauizziee for these cookies. They were a prop. I cant eat them, sadly. Yall know im allergic to gluten 😂😂😂

Instagram vs Reality

Look at the left to see what im really working with today 🤣🤣🤣

We love the beautiful photos... Dont get me wrong. @womenbymag made me look amazing in this! The light, the room, the outfit, the hair, the makeup (thanks @cynfulmakeup for glamming me up!

Shoots like this are sometimes a part of my "workday" too but not on the reg!

The 2nd picture is more my jam when I am at home.

I'm in yoga pants because i am usually about to workout or I just finished working out, or because i really jusy like comfy bottoms. No makeup. Hair is frizzy and half blow dried because I didn't have enough time. Books, papers, planners, cords and all kinds of things around me. I am probably hungry because i forgot to eat. But I ALWAYS have warm beverage somewhere within reach.

Homemade Medicine Balls are my go to lately. Thanks to @ky_crook_on_purpose for the recipe! Its soooo good!

However... All of that is exactly why I do what I do anyway. Success to me is yoga pants and no makeup on a Monday.

Success is also stilletos and photoshoots on a Tuesday.

Both scenarios are very much a part of my life and i am here for it!

All this to say, we do what we do when we need to do it because we are CEOs.


We build empires. We make money. We change lives. We impact millions.

Whether you do it in fuzzy socks or stilletos is completely up to you. I'm cheering you on either way.

If you wanna share, I'd love to hear about your Monday!

You Were Created to Create

Stop consuming. Start creating.

In the 2020s there is an overwhelming amount of information available to us...and I think we over consume it.

Our desire to learn is a noble one - you do have to learn a thing or two to show up with excellence. But as entrepreneurs, we do it with this intention that we need to learn EVERYTHING about a particular something before we make a move. However, overconsumption leads to overthinking.

And we all know how your overthinking is holding you back. Analysis paralysis ain't it, friend.

Btw, there is NO other occupation that does this by the way. Surgeons don't learn every single thing about surgery before they start practicing. They learn new things through experience - the human body is complex. Lawyers don't memorize every single law before they make their first court appearance. It's impossible, legalities are complex.

Entrepreneurship...also complex!

You are NEVER going to know everything. Doesn't work that way.

I have no idea where this fear based framework comes in play as Entrepreneurs because it literally shows up no where else in life. So let's just stop that.

Here's what I do:
I choose to make some sort of decision with 70% of the information. The rest of the 30% is a combination of divine guidance, intuition, inspired action that will bring further clarity. I don't give myself time to overthink. Because

    1. I don't have time for that.
    2. Because I don't want to get into a habit that says I can't trust myself to make my own life's choices.

So, this is me saying...you know enough to begin today! You know enough to make moves today. You know know enough to create...and remember you were created to do so!

So, what are you creating? I wanna see it! Don't be shy! Share with me down below!

Success Is Inevitable…

Certainty plays a big role in your 2021. Let me explain.

If you move into this new year, this new season, this new area with a mindset that says your success is merely a maybe, there is a high probability that you won't achieve much. There's not much to show up for there. Who wants to show up for a maybe?!? Maybe this will work, maybe it won't. That's not very motivating. Ew.

But if you knew for certain that all your work, all your faith, all your effort, all your intention was absolutely 100% going to produce the outcomes you wanted, you're light a little more 🔥 under your booty. Your show up for that, would you not?

And so it is with that level of certainty that you must make moves in the new year. That level of certainty makes you want to take inspired action. That level of certainty makes you want trust the process. That level of certainty leads to new possibilities, new ideas, new opportunities. Greater impact. Greater platform. Greater income. Whatever it is you're looking to expand into.

The mind is a powerful thing - we spend far too much time focusing on fears and lies from the pits of the underground! These don't actually serve you, fyi. All it does is give you an excuse to stay small, living a small life, doing small level things. Which would be fine if you didn't actually want more for yourself.

And I know you do! You can't fool me!

And so...let's flip the script. Write down what you want. Write down 10 things you feel led to do that will move you in the right direction (do you need to read a book, take a class, hire a coach, move to a new city, etc).

Then you make the decision today to do those things! Commit to showing up for it because if you know you are CERTAIN that when you do, success is inevitable!

Give yourself that gift today!

I'm always cheering you on!

xx, Dr. TT
