Why am I the happiest on chemo day? Today i sat alone and took the time to reflect upon life and for all that I am thankful for. If anyone is feeling down and don’t feel that have much to live for just come here with me one time to sit and talk and you will appreciate all the little things in life that we take for granted. When I was diagnosed a former client mine who Had cancer sent me a link to an article called 17 things you will learn after you get diagnosed. I didn’t believe many of them then but it turned out to be true; many people who are your friends will slowly disappear or will leave you when you need them most, but many who you never expect would contact you and show support and many more. It was a hard for me at the beginning because I was deserted, left by the people who I never thought would, my most loyal clients left me when my business was tanking and My medical bills were pouring in and I was a crutch to help other people when I was dying much more, but though that I was able to learned to let go, let go of toxic people who you let hold you back from being your greatest potential and I had to do it again. I built the foundation of my empire during this time that most people spend surviving I spent thriving so you all will see soon and from my losses I have gained new people who have brought out the best in me and vice versa. We are building our tribe Of unbreakable fucking warriors who want to give this knowledge back to help others take back control of their life. I am Most thankful for my mom and Dad, the two greatest people I could ask for, the people who stuck with me at my worst (including my clients thank you!!), and the people from far away that have shown your love and support. Thank you all so much!
• Today I make one of the biggest moves of my life! I am applying to work with a man who has influenced me beyond words over the last couple years! One of the biggest names in sales, coaching, mentoring, social media and real estate! • Today I TAKEACTION1️⃣0️⃣❌❗️ • Ask and you shall receive! • I am done with not winning the way I need to be winning, I’m done not making the type of money I deserve and my family deserves, I’m done accepting mediocrity, I’m done not pursuing my dreams because my mentality and commitment wasn’t ready. I am finally ready!! • Sometimes it’s easy to give advice and not take it yourself. I’m not a hypocrite, I refuse to settle. I am dedicated, I am relentless, and most of all I’m OBSESSED AND FOCUSED! • You changed my entire mindset on life, business, money, and what it means to be a successful man.
VIDEO IS BEING PREPARED!! THANK YOU IN ADVANCE!!
I had to run an errand so I told my youngest I would be back soon. She stopped watching TV and said, “Be safe.” •
“What did you say, love?” •
“Be safe, Mom.” •
I smiled and nodded and promised that I would be safe. I heard her the first time she said it, but I needed her to repeat it for some strange reason. Perhaps it’s because she sounded just like me. Be safe. Isn’t that what we want for our loved ones, to be safe and careful? But not for everything. There’s a time to be brave, put on those big girl panties, and do something that scares your Momma a little. Not in rebellion but in the hopes of blazing a path and finding your voice- the one that sounds like you instead of someone else. •
For over a week, I have wrestled with a decision wondering if I was playing it safe or backing down. Or, even worse, taming the side of me that’s bold and gutsy. But I just wanted to do the right thing even if it was the least wave-making thing. Can I be honest? I did the least wave-making thing…and then I cried. I knew I wanted only one thing: to be obedient and honor God with this decision. •
There’s a passage in Ephesians 6 that stood out to me: “…that I may open my mouth boldly to make known the mystery of the gospel, for which I am an ambassador in chains; that in it I may speak boldly, as I ought to speak.” (19b-20) •
My chains were invisible but, nevertheless, had to be confronted and untangled. Sometimes boldness is the courageous decision to be above reproach and play it safe when things aren’t black and white. •
What propels me and moves me the most in this passage is the diligent, relentless preparation that has to be taken in order to stand our ground. •
Waist girded with truth, putting on the breastplate of righteousness, feet shod with the preparation of the gospel of peace, shield of faith, helmet of salvation, and the SWORD of the Spirit. If that isn’t bold and gutsy, I don’t know what is. •
But, safety in risk-taking (if it’s not sin or illegal) isn't the goal or standard...it's just an option. And, for today, it's one that I chose. •
Don't box me in or take away my Gutsy Girl title, because every day I run with sharp objects. Swords up, baby.
