Take Accountability for your Actions

Take Accountability for your Actions

Up until the end of 2017, I blamed others for what happened to me. If I was late, it was because there was too much traffic, not because I didn’t leave early enough to account for that traffic. If I forgot something, it was because someone else didn’t remind me. If someone misunderstood me, it was because they weren’t smart enough to understand me, not because I didn’t clarify the confusion. But all of this…sounds so selfish, doesn’t it?

Nearly one year ago, my approach to life completely changed. In essence, I guess I can say I also changed…a lot. It was a simple decision to take full accountability for everything that happened in my life, even if it wasn’t “fully” my fault, because well…why would I want someone else to have control over my outcome? Did you ever consider that thought? Continue reading “Take Accountability for your Actions”

My Consistent Everyday Habits

My Consistent Everyday Habits

I am a firm believer that our success is a reflection of our consistent everyday habits. Some of these habits are as simple as having the discipline to make our bed every morning, exercising once a day, or maybe even meditating. Regardless, I believe the foundation of success stems from our discipline and how well we push ourselves to do so consistently. Often times, I am asked how I manage to maintain such an active healthy lifestyle and I always bring it back to the habits I incorporate each day. With that, I’ve decided to share five of my consistent everyday habits.  Continue reading “My Consistent Everyday Habits”

Controlling Our Emotions and Reactions

Controlling Our Emotions and Reactions

Recently I was featured on a beautiful female community website (www.astoldbywomen.com) with this article and the quote they used from me as the main reference had many people commenting on the topic or asking me about it. I love the concept and understanding of why it’s important to control our emotions because I’ve personally invested a lot of research into understanding how emotions dictate our energy and mind.  Continue reading “Controlling Our Emotions and Reactions”

The Importance of Smart Daily Habits

The Importance of Smart Daily Habits

At the start of 2018, I made an intentional goal to incorporate a good daily habit each day and have continued to add on as the year progressed. The first habit I started to incorporate in my daily routine was simply making my bed every day. If I can’t find the time and self-discipline to do something as simple as making my bed, how the fuck am I supposed to expect myself to be able to do more difficult tasks?

Eventually, this became part of my normal morning routine and every time I don’t make my bed (yes, every now and then when I am in a rush lol), a part of myself feels off. When something becomes part of your daily routine so consistently and you stop doing so, your mind and body will feel off-centered, or what I like to call “not at equilibrium”.  Continue reading “The Importance of Smart Daily Habits”

Don’t Just Talk, Execute

Don’t Just Talk, Execute

Something that has always bothered me is hearing people talk about something they want, but always having a reason or excuse as to why they “can’t” attain it. If you really think about it, the only person/thing that is limiting yourself is you. It really is just you. And it really is that simple, whether you like it or not.  Continue reading “Don’t Just Talk, Execute”
