”Do not choose the lesser life. Do you hear me? Do you hear me?” . . This means, truly, giving ourselves permission. It sounds so silly. We are grown ups who have taken our lives already to such great heights. But here’s the thing about us, here’s the thing about this juicy, ripe, seducing life—we can be expansive each and every day. We can be more. Being more doesn’t mean doing more. Being more means allowing in. . . As I coach people I see again and again the walls they have put up to marking more money. So many rules around it. It can’t happen. I don’t want to do it this way. People won’t pay Me that. I am not sure how I can grow my business because I am just one person. . . It is time. 2019. To move past these loops of limiting thought. And to stretch out your arms and claim your glorious ONE LIFE and dedicate yourself to living it fully and magically each and every day. If you’re ready to do that, hop on my webinar this week! Link in profile! . . Thank you @nayyirah.waheed for your glorious glorious voice.
A family that does jazz hands together stays together, am I right? Growing up my siblings and I didn’t have a lot. But compared to my parents we were rich as thieves. . 💰💴 . My mom grew up 1 of 12 children on a farm in Idaho and talks about learning to harvest potatoes and beets out in the fields as early as five years old. She started babysitting and earning her own money at a young age. Once, she treated herself to a new sweater when she was 16. She wore it home and her mother told her she was too high and mighty and selfish to spend that kind of money on herself and she took the sweater right then and there and ripped it into two pieces. . 💰 💵 My father grew up 1 of 8 children in a tiny three bedroom house. He had a tough military father who ruled the house in a way that makes Captain Von Trapp look like a giant teddy bear. He started helping the milk man deliver milk when he was little so he could maybe get a dime at the end of the day to have if his own. . 💵 💰 My parents and grandparents were incredibly hard workers, but they didn’t have a good relationship with money. . 💵 These sound like episodes from a hallmark movie, I know. But these are my roots. These are the people who taught me about money. Most of what I was taught was that there wasn’t enough. It was stressful. Buying things makes you selfish. You have to always work hard and ask for very little. . 💰 💰 💰 But I decided to break the mold. And it took a retraining of allll the things I believed about money and all the disempowering stories I was telling myself. I’m teaching a live class this Friday about how to shift from these money stories we were taught by generations of our families and how we can be the ones to stop the scarcity and move into major abundance. . 💴 💵 Now, when my nieces asks, “are you rich?” I get to stop, and look at her and say, “you’re rich. You’re empowered. You have more than 99% of the kids on this planet and you get to have an amazing and powerful relationship with abundance and your worth. And you get to change the world.” . .

This Friday I’m offering a Free training on what I call “The Essential Guide to Doubling Your Income in 2019”. Link is in bio to register. . . I’ve been thinking about this a lot because my close friends and family pretty much call me Midas, in a good way. Some people can dance, some can sing, some can paint murals, and who knew I would discover a decade ago that my true talent was taking a dollar and making it into a hundred. I love coming up with ideas for people to make money—but it takes more than just an idea too. You have to change your entire relationship to money and I’ve finally broken down what I did to change mine and I want to share it with you! . . It wasn’t easy to change. I grew up poor in a home where my parents declared bankruptcy not once, but twice. A home where there was no security. I had to work job after job to pay my way through college when all my roommates had wealthy parents and got a free ride. I’ve been as poor as you can get without being homeless as a kid. Then I scraped by for years. And then I finally got tired of that story and decided to change it all. . . I’m not an extravagant person, but I want to give this little niece of mine the best life has to offer. I want to give myself the best life has to offer. I want to make money so I can extend my reach and my heart and help make this planet healthier and my fellow humans happier. . . If you want that too. Register now, yo! 👆🏻 . Link in bio. . .

This leaf fell right as I hit the shutter. One, solitary leaf. Falling. Crossing the surface of my lens as I hit the button at exactly the precise moment I thought magic might happen. . .

#mood . . Like seriously. My friend Ryan @ourstorycreative took out time tonight to make and create a funny thing that had NOTHING TO DO WITH WORK. Don’t get me wrong. I love work. And my work often doesn’t feel like work. But the most creative people are the ones who can garner that child-like ability to play and have fun and use your imagination. I did that tonight in a haunted old Inn in Massachusetts. No agenda. No preplanning. Just two people crafting a story and making it fun. . . Have you done that lately? I want to hear what you created? I want to do fake episodes of cooking shows. I want to pretend to be a ghost hunter, I want to give people makeovers and be in cool reality TV. I often dream about making the most amazing cupcakes and winning some prize from it all. Oh, the things we humans have created for entertainment are endlessly amazing. . . Photo @juliecatephoto
Let me tell you something you already know. The world ain't all sunshine and rainbows. It's a very mean and nasty place and I don't care how tough you are it will beat you to your knees and keep you there permanently if you let it. You, me, or nobody is gonna hit as hard as life. But it ain't about how hard ya hit. It's about how hard you can get hit and keep moving forward. How much you can take and keep moving forward. That's how winning is done! 👊🏼👊🏼👊🏼 ~ Rocky Balboa . . . . . . #motivation #rockybalboa #newyearsresolutions
