Life Is About Leaving The Comfort Zone…

Don’t settle into comfort zones you don’t want to be in. There is always more! And reaching for that is part of the human experience.

No guilt required.

As life is happening to you, for you, through you, its bound to create desires that are beyond your present experience. This is normal!

You can be grateful for what you have and still experience desire.

It happens everyday. You dont want to eat manna everyday, do you? Maybe you want 🍕 then 🌮.

That kind of desire is easy to accept. But the big scary stuff? The unfamiliar? Those can cause you to cling to comfort zones you dont even want!

You see how this can be a problem?

But there is a higher version of you waiting for you to show up for you. A higher version connected to the divine. A higher version that isn’t doubting.

Ask yourself what that version of you would do and lean into that!

Training the mind and body to operate from a vision of the future and to overcome present circumstance and appearance is not easy. But if you’re curious here’s how I do it:

1. Get clear. If you can’t get clear on what you really really want, the rest of this will be moot. Often it’s the lack of clarity that keeps me stuck.

2. Lots of meditation. Teach your body to linger in the the future as if it were happening right now. And then...

3. The feeling creates the frequency. When I can really feel it, as in feel the emotions associated with the desired outcome, I know I’m in co-creation mode. Things tend to happen fast after that.

4. High level Support is non-negotiable. I have had and have spoken to the same coach every week for over 5 years. I am a great coach - I love helping my clients get results! But I can’t fix what I can’t see. He helps me uncover those things within myself. Keeps me out of my head and grounded in Truth.

If you’ve taken my MVMC series, I talk specifically about the The Theology of Desire.


Reminder: your desires are not random - no matter how big or small they may be. The work isn’t trying to strip yourself of them in some masochistic way of being ‘holy’.

The work is to figure out why you have them, who gave them to you, and what you’re supposed to do with them. They arent accident. 😊

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!

Want some advice?

When it comes to success, my advice boils down to this...


First, let me tell you what its not.

❌ Its not starting your day at some ungodly hour. It works for some, but not all. Find your rhythm.

❌ Its not making sure you have all your ducks in a row before you launch. Whatever that means lol. Done is better than perfect. Personally, im not that granular. I like systems, i also like the freedom i give myself to deviate when necessary.

❌ Its not having a set of curated brand colors, website or logo. Fun fact, I've never had a logo. 🤷🏾‍♀️ And my "brand colors" have evolved as i have. Not opposed to any of this btw. It just hasn't been something i put a lot of focus on.

❌ Its not waiting until "the right time." Just let go of that, it doesn't exist. The past is gone. The future is not promised. All you really have is the power of now.

My biggest piece of advice is... Show up.

Show up for the dream
Show up for the calling
Show up for your people
Show up for yourself

Homework:

Answer these questions:

Showing up looks like asking the right questions. What has God you called to do at this moment?

Showing up looks like taking the right action. Not getting #fomo and hopping on every trend that pops up on your feed. What feels the most aligned to your mission?

Showing up looks like staying in your lane and owning it. You are uniquely called to be you. You have something special that no one else has. What is that?

All the stuff you want wants you back!!!!

But you're gonna have to participate in the process, my friend! Showing up is the prerequisite. So, I just wanted to remind you of that today.
