Get our of your comfort zone

2015-08-31T17:38:19-04:00Monday, August 31, 2015|

Once you get rid of the idea that you must please other people in order to feel accepted before you please yourself, and begin to follow your own instincts, only then can you be successful. You'll feel more fulfilled and at peace within and other people tend to be satisfied by what you do. Understand that at times you have to leave the city of your own comfort and go into the wilderness of your intuition.   Follow your gut, because when you do, what you'll discover will be amazing - what you'll discover is actually yourself. Remember, there are no mistakes, only lessons. Love yourself, trust your choices, and everything is possible.

Some say beauty is only skin deep - I say thank God for Mascara! I am always amazed at how glamorous make-up can make you look and though for some the natural look works - not for me!

Music is many things to many people, but to entrepreneurs it can be an essential success tool. According to a recent study "Brain imaging studies have shown that various parts of the brain may be activated by a piece of music."

Dr Bob Proctor

 Have you seen or read The Secret and its Law of Attraction? Well I have been a believer forever and imaged how impacted I was when one of the stars of the movie, Dr. Bob Proctor not only became a fan of mine - but SpinGym as well.  As he tells in his video we met at a dinner, the night before we were both speaking at a Charity event put on by the Cynthia Kersey Foundation.  What I didn't realize until he sent me this video was that he had had a heart attack and how profoundly my fitness product affected him, his recovery and his on going health. When he says that SpinGym works like unadulterated magic and that everyone should be using one - I was on Cloud 9 - perhaps I still am -- so happy to share his energy, his passion and words of wisdom.

5 Fun Travel Tips

  I got the travel bug from my family and we would LOVE to take trips together.  Back when I was little we didn't have a lot of money so we would travel mostly in the US and for a while owned a motor home.  It was fun, more convenient than having to pack up and stay in hotels and I think it helped make my family very close.  We did not however, ever make it out of this country and glorious as the USA is, I've personally visited 40 States - I craved seeing the rest of the world and experiencing different cultures - here are some tips I want to share that can add spice to your trips abroad. Patience is Important.  Nothing when you travel is quite the way you expect.  Planes get delayed, hotels don't have your reservation, the waiter doesn't speak English and you're starving - The best advice - truly don’t sweat the stuff you can’t control. Life is much too short to be angry & annoyed all the time. Take a breath and count your blessings (it could always be worse!) Then look around - most people are not nearly as lucky as you [...]
