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 🙂

Reminder: Own The Parts of You That Go Against The Grain.

Reminder: Own the parts of you that go against the grain.


You're meant to be different.
You're meant to stand out.
You're meant to be uniquely you.

Strategize that.
Commercialize that.
Monetize that!!!!

Most of us grew up thinking life needed to be lived a certain way because thats all we saw.

But ambition is predicated on exposure. If you don't see the possibility of something else, we end up trying to fit in "the box" that was never meant for us.

And how's that working out for ya!?

Usually it doesn't. You end up frustrated, irritated, depressed, unhappy, etc. Basically living a life that was never meant for you.

And believe me when I say, it doesn't have to be that way. Infinite joy is a absolutely available.

As a matter of fact, its the very thing God wants for you!

All that to say, once I owned the part of me that really resisted other people perceptions on what life should be, things got easier, more fluid, more fun! And I definitely started making a lot more money. 😂

Praying you lean into who you are, who you were always meant to be be, and experience that abundantly.

Sending so much ❤️ today.
