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!

The Bad Pancake Theory…

Have you heard of the bad pancake theory in dating?


Lets apply this to your business...

Basically, when you make pancakes, the first one comes out a little wonky. But as you keep going, they get progressively better!

Usually, this is applied to dating after long term relationships. The first person you date is the bad pancake. But, it gets better after that, "they say."

Well, let's apply this theory to business. The first idea you have, the first course you create, the first video you make, the first live stream you do...all bad pancakes. When I say bad, I simply mean, it's not going to be perfect. You're still learning. And there is nothing wrong with that!

I mean sure, it's "edible" - you will be able to sell it, post it, launch it, etc...but will it be the apex of your life's work? 

No! It shouldn't be.

You know how many youtube videos I made before I felt like my videos were actually...kind of good?

You know how many courses I launched before I finally felt like I created my flagship one?

You know how many talks I gave at conferences before I felt like I could own it on stage?

You know how many times I winged out my eye liner before it looked good on my face? 😂

A lot!

But you know what I never did? I never stewed in the idea that any of it had to be perfect before it made its debut. Who has time for that? I have a life to live, people to help, purpose to step into, obedience to walk in.

I kept going.

Perfectionism will kill momentum. And I am not available for that. Instead, I focused my energy on learning what I needed to learn so that it just got done! I can assess after, revamp later, and redo if necessary.

I am where I am today because I wasn't willing to lose to the idea that perfect the ONLY way to do it. 

So if you're spinning your wheels in neutral because you think the first iteration of anything needs to be absolutely perfect, just remember...even a batch of pancakes never start out ready for their cookbook cover closeup the first time.

Besides, who told you it had to be perfect anyway?

That mindset is going to make this experience more painful than it ever needed to be, my friend.

Choose again.

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

Did You Put Your Dreams on Hold?

We all collectively agree...

2020 was nothing like we planned, and nothing that we wanted.

It's ok to admit that.

It's ok to take time to heal from that.

Pandemics and racial tensions, wildfires and dustbowls, and people who want to disregard democracy - it's been quite a ride.
       

    ✔️ We have all had covid hit close to home.

    ✔️ We have all watched in horror as we witnessed egregious inequality in this country.

    ✔️ We have all been affected by the natural disasters.

    ✔️ We have all shook our heads at the political landscape.

But if 2020 did anything, I hope if gave you time to pause, breathe, and take a look at your life.

If you have left songs unsung, wine untasted and dreams unrealized - it's time to change that!

As we move into a 2021, and the natural energy of newness, you get to make a choice!

You can look back on 2020 as crappy year that it was/has been for sooooo many people.

Or you can look back on it as the last year you decided to put your dreams on hold. The power of that decision is yours.

Trust that hour dreams and desires were given to you for a reason.

You showing up in the way you're called to show up matters in this world...so so so much.

Hiding your light helps no one.

As I work on my 2021 masterplan, I'd love to hear yours!

Let me know below - we can all hold each other accountable!

Then share this with a friend who needs to be reminded!
