I do not choose to be a common man. It is my right to be uncommon — if I can. I seek opportunity — not security. I do not wish to be a kept citizen, humbled and dulled by having the state look after me. I want to take the calculated risk; to dream and to build, to fail and to succeed. I refuse to barter incentive for a dole. I prefer the challenges of life to the guaranteed existence; the thrill of fulfillment to the stale calm of utopia. I will not trade freedom for beneficence nor my dignity for a handout. I will never cower before any master nor bend to any threat. It is my heritage to stand erect, proud and unafraid; to think and act for myself, enjoy the benefit of my creations, and to face the world boldly and say, this I have done.

Success is a very lonely road, on that road you’re not going to see too many friends, you’ll see your shadow most often. You must trust inside your heart of hearts, inside that what you’re doing, what you believe in is a worthy cause and you’re willing to fight.
You can’t rest, you can’t take a break, its not going to get easier, its not going to get lighter. When you get to the point that enough is enough. When you get to the point that it hurts really bad, to the point that they tell you its over when you’re ready to give up that’s when you get started.
What you cannot do, you must not do is quit during the process, you cannot give up because it isn’t what you see. You cannot give up. Ever
Work on yourself, work on your focus, you cannot stop. The problem is that a lot of people see “difficult” as something negative. You need to see “difficult” differently. The more you go through, the more difficult , the more challenging it is, the harder it is.... all you’re doing is building the strength you need.
In life you are either going to a storm, in a storm or you’re coming out of a storm. It’s a part of life, there is no way around it so just be careful not to allow the trials and tribulations consume you.
I don’t care if you’re a billionaire, a CEO, and entertainer…. I do not care who you are. Problems are a part of life but they are not life.
Its not going to be easy, there are going to be moments when you doubt yourself, there are rough times that are going to come but they are not going to stay. No matter how bad it is, or how bad it gets, you have to make it your personal business to make it happen.
Look, sometimes there will be obstacles, sometimes there will be not really nice people, and sometimes there will be b*tch situations where you have to be your own hero.
One very important note to yourself: Bad times just like clouds last for a short period of time and sun always come up again. You are that Sun🤩🙌🏻 Don’t give up no matter what. You can do it, you can do it all👊🏻🙏🏻 Send this message to your close one who need to see this and comment your thoughts below👇🏻
VÍTIMAS NÃO VENCEM !!! Ponto! Vítimas culpam os outros pelo seu não resultado. Dizem que não tem tempo. Dizendo que não tem dinheiro. Dizem que não tem conhecimento... não tem apoio... a lista de JUSTIFICATIVAS é infinita. .
Assuma a responsabilidade. Torne-se o PROTAGONISTA da sua própria história. Vítimas não vencem! Elas querem a atenção das outras pessoas. Elas contam histórias tão bem contadas que elas mesmas caem na história que contam. Não justifique. Não crie muletas. Você é uma centelha divina um ser imparáveis e é capaz de fazer TUDO que verdadeiramente se propuser a fazer. .
Marque quem vc ama 🔥👊🏻

While it’s important to keep good nutritional habits in check any time of year, we get that temptation is high around holidays. We tend to keep our nutritional choices in alignment with our bigger WHY, while also allowing ourselves to enjoy celebrations of the season… within REASON YALL! “Balance” is a really BADASS b-word…. seriously!
Keep your nutritional choices in balance, but also seek out NON DIET RELATED habits you can start working on NOW that can really make some positive waves in your life.
Start working on these 5 Non Diet Ways to Thrive In Life now… they’re pretty simple in theory, but some are harder than others to implement. I struggle BIG TIME with #3
Which ones do you struggle with? Which ones do you feel you can start working on today? Let us know!
DOERS LOVE MONDAY! When your season comes, it will clearly reveal how disciplined you were to the process. Let your consistency awaken your opportunities. When the opportunities arise, it’s the discipline that gives you the confidence to step up to the plate and execute in that moment. #DOER #letswork #grind #consistency #discipline #neverquit #mindset
Someone needs to hear this I, know this will help some one. 👊🏻🔥 Drop a 👍🏻 up if this helps you. 👍🏻👍🏻👍🏻 😃🙏🍀 @maricruz.m1

Sorry for ghosting for a bit but I needed to take a minute away from my phone to recharge my spirit! I’m back though! And I’m ready to face 2019 with a BANG! Comment your New Years resolution below! ⬇️💝 #foxxfeminist
don’t count the days 🌿 make the days count
A great way to keep your weight(and waist) in check without dieting this time of year is to stick to a regular exercise routine. It will help you de-stress while giving you some room to eat a little more than you usually do. #keepitpalo #keepmoving #fatburner

Someone asked, who do we believe ?⠀
With so much information & social influence who do we believe ?⠀
People making millions of dollars here ⠀
People saying how wonderful their life is there ⠀
People funny, sexy , happy inspired famous viral videos⠀
I don’t know where to look ⠀
And am I the only one that doesn’t always feel that way at times? ⠀
I feel sometimes I need to make myself into some sort of image to get anywhere then I don’t know what that image is ⠀
& behind the scenes I sometimes feel lonely as f—k, or dumb, stupid , worthless & I get upset usually at the people I love the most ⠀
Great points ... ⠀
Let’s look it in two ways A & B & then we pray you C your way out of it 🤣😂🤣🤣🤣🤣⠀
I read this from a book about the secret life of a famous guru and teacher⠀
❤️when spiritual or personal development insight is presented or conceived in contradiction to daily life ❤️⠀
Look at it this way ⠀
A➡️Social media & the like is a chance for a person to perform away from the normal routines of daily life showing our best and brightest persona⠀
it’s an awesome way to share express or entertain people ⠀
It’s fun and a way to show our shining light ⠀
Many of these lights you see are showing their best personality as I am doing right here for the purpose in helping you in some way ⠀
but it’s not all of me or all of them ⠀
Social conditioning says we must fit in to survive and back in our tribal days we knew our place by how our tribes worked & what we needed to do within that tribe to survive ⠀⠀
With social media our tribes are a lot different and don’t give us clearly defjned roles & many times we aren’t even in personal physical proximity to the tribe so we don’t know how to be ⠀
B➡️We then think we should model the leader of something we are participating instead of applying the information into action so that we can improve our own lives ⠀
That’s the big mistake ⠀
Accumulation v Action ⠀
Instead we accumulate more information we have so much things we think we should be doing we become inactive & overwhelmed doing nothing with the information & then making ourselves wrong in the process ⠀
Sometimes we just don’t vibe with certain people. Keeping them around won’t help because it’s important to get rid of them in order to make room for the ones who we do vibe with. .

I can’t believe what has transpired in the wee hours of this morning. 😳
It’s HUGE! 🤯
And I’m scared AF. 😰
But I’m also in alignment with it that I’ve decided I’m jumping in with both feet. 🦶🦶 I feel like I need to vomit but at the same time I feel so calm and sure.
Yesterday I mentioned that I was playing too small, today I’m about to stretch myself into the next version of myself. 🏋🏽♀️ It’s not easy.
And it’s not simple.
I’m not over here batting my lashes and patting myself on my shoulder.
I’m fighting the resistance that keeps coming up that encourages me to stay in my safe zone.
Don’t take this risk. ❌
Don’t put yourself out there. ❌❌ What if people think your concept is stupid? 🙄
What if you make a fool of yourself? 🥴
Remember the last 6 times you tried to make a go of something like this?
Remember how each 6 times flopped? 🥺
You guys, I’m really nervous.
And I’m also really sure that every so called ‘flop’ has brought me to this place, where I need to be.
Every coach and mentor I have had along the way has taught me a new piece of the completed puzzle that lies before me.
I am ready to show you my completed puzzle so that I can glue it together, stick it on my wall and start my next puzzle. 🧩
And I’m fucking shaking.
This puzzle was already a big one for me and I can already see that the size of my next puzzle is going to make this one look like child’s play.
Have you ever been so consumed with an idea or a desire that you persevere no matter what the obstacle?
That’s where I’m at now.
There are obstacles everywhere.
But I know that what I have to share is in alignment with me, my purpose and and who I desire to become. 🙏🏼🥰 I also know that those who feel in alignment with what I have to share will join me in jumping in with both feet 🦶🦶. And those who aren’t in alignment with what I have to share will continue you to love and support me anyway - because I’m a loveable kinda girl 🤷🏽♀️🙊. So really, there is nothing to lose - except time.
Later today I am going to share a sneak peak of what’s been happening in my heart, mind and soul...I hope you’ll join me xo.

Sellapan Ramanathan ( 3 July 1924 – 22 August 2016),usually referred to as S. R. Nathan, was a Tamil Singaporean politician who was the sixth President of Singapore from 1999 to 2011, having been elected in uncontested elections in 1999 and 2005. In 2009, he surpassed Benjamin Sheares to become Singapore's longest-serving President.
Nathan experienced a troubled youth – his father committed suicide, his three brothers died at an early age, he was twice expelled from school, and he ran away from home. After living by his wits as a translator for the Japanese during World War II, he completed his secondary education through a correspondence course, and then earned a diploma from the University of Malaya in Singapore in 1954. This was followed by a distinguished career in the Singapore Civil Service, which he joined in 1955. Between 1962 and 1966 he was seconded to the National Trades Union Congress, and then worked in the Ministry of Foreign Affairs and Ministry of Home Affairs. He was with the Security and Intelligence Division of the Defence Ministry when the Laju incident happened in 1974, and was among the government officers who agreed to accompany terrorists who had bombed petroleum tanks to Kuwait to secure the release of civilian hostages and ensure the terrorists' safe passage. He served as First Permanent Secretary of the Foreign Ministry from 1979 to 1982.
Nathan left the Civil Service in 1982 to take up the executive chairmanship of the Straits Times Press; he also held directorships in other companies. Between 1988 and 1996 he served as Singapore's High Commissioner to Malaysia and Ambassador to the United States, before his 12-year term as President of the Republic from 1999 to 2011.
Following retirement, Nathan turned to writing and also became a Distinguished Senior Fellow at the School of Social Sciences of Singapore Management University (SMU), and at the Institute of Southeast Asian Studies. He died in 2016 and was accorded the honour of a state funeral by the Government.
Among the awards and honours Nathan received were the renamed of Singapore University of Social Sciences (SUSS) School of Human Development and Social.
Other people matter! Period.
Dr. Christopher Peterson, a psychologist, said this and it really resonated with me.
There was a time in my life when it was all about me. What's in it for me? What can this person do for me? Me, me, me... and more me.
Yes... I feel I am important... we all are... take care of the self first so that we can take care of others. Just like the flight attendant instructs us when flying... we are instructed to put our own breathing mask on first before helping others... I get it.
Other people matter.
Meaning - whatever it is that we want to achieve, treat others around us with respect, dignity and kindness. Just imagine what we could accomplish if we treated everyone - even our adversaries - with respect and kindness.
Other people matter.
The barista that makes and serves our coffee. They matter. Offer a smile, say thank you. It might be the only smile and words of thanks that they receive today.
Other people matter.
You're staff, your colleagues, your family. They count on you for so many things. Share your thoughts, dreams, and goals with them... and learn about theirs as well - everyone will be far better for it.
Other people matter.
And you... the one reading this post. Thank you. I'm grateful that we get to share a part of life's journey together. Knowing you're pursuing a life and career that's meaningful to you is important to me.
You matter! 🙏🏼❤️
Either you run the day, or the day runs you! -John Rohn This quote came across my screen this morning at the perfect time. I was having a “Monday”, sitting in my cube, tons of follow up and the phone won’t stop ringing 😳 Send help! I could feel myself getting overwhelmed (and grouchy) and had to pull back, evaluate and chill out. I chose not to be an anxious mess. I don’t have this down to a Science, but I could feel myself spiraling into grouch potato mode and that’s no way to be, especially on Monday. You have the power to control your mood, I swear! Take a step back and look at the situation and ask yourself why your anxious, is it going to get done, is this helping your cause? Then take a deep breath and handle it. Once I stepped back and stopped the spiral, the day instantly got better. It’s all in how you look at things! You’re in charge, don’t let your day run you into the ground.
In other news I’m so close to being able to do a split again 😜
Bridge the gap.
Bridge the gap between perseverance and excellence.
Bridge the gap between different mentalities. What can you learn from someone else’s mindset?
Bridge the gap between talking about it and actually being about it.
Bridge the gap between possibilities and the impossible.
Bridge the gap between where you are and where you are going.
Build a bridge between your fears and your capabilities.
Build a bridge between you and everything you have ever wanted.

! Double tap if you set your stage to win 🏆
Gosh, is this good or what?!! So often I find myself getting stressed or anxious about what I *think* someone else is thinking— when in all actuality I have no idea! Stop wasting your time and energy on the things you make up in your head! 🤦🏼♀️ Genius! ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Anyone else struggle with this??
I WANT FREEDOM
thats the human call
what we all want
to express ourselves
naturally, creatively, spiritually & humanly
all around the world FREEDOM is the call
but to get to it is what defines who we are
to get there we have to see the things that prevent us getting that FREEDOM
AND we may not like what we see
THATS THE GREAT HEROS JOURNEY
like all great heros we must turn into the things we are trying to avoid to get the things we are wanting
these obstacles are part of the equation for the hero to grow
that's part of the ancient story of any hero
they hear the call
they they reject the call because it seems impossible & hard
they then see that they cannot move forward with that call
they gain courage & enter the challenge
they are confronted & resist while going through it
they come out with new insights & understandings
they learn through it something special about themselves & others
to be with and create with people the call and the obstacle for them to become their own heros is an honour
its not easy but worth the journey when they go back into their lives with the positive insights and negative understandings to become their own heros
you know or may not know that you got that hero
waiting to come out
waiting to embrace the deeper call
to awaken her or him in you is one of the great human experiences
its complete beauty
we have a couple of tickets left for access point NZ
pm me and discover the hero within you.....again
