This excuse really annoys me.
A common excuse people use when it comes to doing things, is that they don’t have the time. A lot of people spend their time watching TV, surfing the Internet, basically we don’t lack time - we tend to focus on things that are distractions. A lot of people spend 2 - 3 hours a day watching TV and surfing the Internet. I dare say this: TV is for broke people.
TV sucks up so much time from a normal household, if you took 2 hours of TV a day and multiplied it by 30 years - then multiplied that by the minimum wage, you’d get maybe $100,000. Maybe half a million if you invested it. That’s half a million in lost revenue.
What about time? That’s time you could have spent doing something meaningful, whether it’s spending time with family or engaging in meaningful conversation.
If you want to spend 5 hours a day watching TV, fine - do you. But don’t complain when you don’t get the results you want to achieve. Don’t give the reason “I don’t have enough time” if you’re engaging in a time sink.
You never lack time, you just need a more compelling reason to act.

WER VON EUCH HAT FRÜHER SIMS GESPIELT? 🤭
Stelle dir vor, du wärst ein #Sims Mensch🙊 und reflektiere mal alle deine Taten, die du heute über den Tag erledigt hast.
Haben dich diese Taten heute näher an dein Ziel gebracht?
Führt dich dein jetziger Job dort hin, wo du hin möchtest?
Führt dich deine heutige Ernährung zu der Gesundheit, die du haben möchtest?
Führt dich deine sportliche Aktivität zu dem Wohlbefinden, das du möchtest?
Als ich das lernen durfte, habe ich mich so schlecht gefühlt bei der Reflektion, ihr habt keine Vorstellung🙏 aber wenn du dein Ziel kennst und weißt wo du stehen möchtest, wirst du automatisch darüber nachdenken, was du die nächste halbe Stunde machen möchtest 🙊💗 #thinkaboutit
Obedience. 🙌🏻 How can we expect God to trust us with the big things and our big dreams if we can’t have the obedience to serve him with the small things?
Get into obedience. ✌🏻 Do that todo list. Do that thing that scares you. Do that thing to makes you uncomfortable. — that’s when you grow my friend.
Once you realize that your obedience to do the things that make you uncomfortable is when your massive growth happens. That’s when you up-level ✨
God is calling you to level up by making you fear what’s next. Your scared. Your excited. Stop letting satan Interfere 👉🏻 Get up & Go for it.
I LOVE coaching as a modality of healing for so many reasons- one of which is that I’ve benefited from being on the receiving end of it in a very profound way. Yesterday I had a call with a coach I’ve worked with on and off for years. In just one hour, she helped me consolidate so many thoughts and plunge under the surface to figure out the why and what this all means moving forward. It was so powerful! Today I’m doing my homework to further reflect on what came up. It feels so good to commit to addressing and freeing myself of the thousand pounds of guilt and should’ing I’ve been carrying around for way too long. It’s time to be free. It’s time to fly! 🦄🦋 #lifecoach#careercoach#personaldevelopment#growth#walkingthetalk
*meditation helps me with so many things including tuning inward, relaxing, calming my nervous system, connecting with myself and my body, reminds me that I am worthy, enough, and that I have everything I need already inside of me. But I have to admit, sometimes I want to avoid it, it makes me anxious, or frustrated, or I feel like I can visualize what I “should” be or what I’m guides too. But these are all clues to what is going on within me. Sometimes meditation seems simple, yet it’s not always. Yet I can also tell you, when I do it anyway, and when I show up for myself, I feel less stressed, more aligned and connected to myself and the universe. Also learning to show up for myself even when I don’t want to or feel like it. I’m still working on it but I’m making progress.
I decided this year to deepen my meditation practice by taking a meditation method teacher training by @daniellemercurio I’ve learned so many different types of mediation and ways to meditate, it’s an amazing experience! While my training is finishing up, she has opened up TWO options for you to join us- in person in philly or online. Sign up now to join me in the group and get access to the amazing Danielle. You don’t want to miss it. you got this. This is your time. Doors are only open until Friday so sign up now! And there’s more!!

Oooh Lordy!! That’s my 14 year old self.
Knowing what you know now, what advice would you give your teenage self?
Me: you’re life is going to be super flippin awesome. But don’t lose your sense of curiosity. In fact, hone in on it and create some amazing things in life that will impact the world. Don’t blend in. Stand OUT! Be bold, influential, serve and make an impact.. lastly, I’m proud of you for growing out those bangs. They made a few appearances through the years in different forms but they’re staying away.. for now.
This picture is so much more than me attending a white party. It’s a representation of 4 years of building, my amazing team and the huge huge lessons along the way. ⠀
6 months ago, this year could have taken a completely different turn, but I decided to take control and achieved every single thing I said I would. A few months of total focus, good energy and being in my power was all it took.⠀
I don’t feel that way all the time, and I would be lying if I said I did. But what I do know, and have proven to myself, is that if I can do it once I can do it again. ⠀
Life isn’t what happens to you, it’s what you make of it. ⠀
When life gives you lemons, you gotta damn well make some lemonade and Just. Keep. Going. 🍋
Day 40: Who are you really? Asking the big questions will answer all others. Today, I was reminded of chapter three in one of my favourite spiritual books: The Untethered Soul. The chapters title: Who am I? When we think about ourselves or tell others who we are we often start with what we do, what we like, where we come from, age, parent, gender, race, relationship status, job, etc. etc. But if that were really you than you were not yourself 10 years ago and again another person in 10 years from now. We constantly change so who are you actually? Asking that question will make you realise that our mind builds up an identity of ourselves but it’s just that a built up identity. As we live it constantly changes and you can change it at will if you are not happy with it. Though to realise that you need to observe yourself, or you can start with observing nature to facilitate that process. Generally spending time in nature and being fully present will help you remove the daily noise and clear your head for those big and powerful questions. You can’t ask this in a distractive environment. You need to be calm and in peace and nature is the best place for that. Watch the video for more thoughts, I take quiet e few detours that might inspire you, order The Untethered Soul today and #lifewillneverbethesameagain

Today I was reading about writing (cos that's how I roll, #partyanimal ) - and the author mentioned how we totally underestimate the "slow, biting price" we have to pay in exchange for mastering a skill.
And it's so dang true. Doing shit that matters is HARD. •
Don't believe anyone who says that if you just "find your passion" and "follow your bliss", everything will be fine. The world doesn't work that way. •
Finding a way to align your work with your strengths and passions certainly makes it easier, but it's ALWAYS gonna be an uphill struggle. •
Let's say you want to be a portrait painter. The first portrait you paint will probably suck. A lot. •
But then you'll get a little feedback, learn a new technique, and the next one will be slightly better. You might still want to throw the end result out of the window, but you'll be on your way to mastering the skill of portrait painting. •
If you don't quit - and if it feeds your soul, you shouldn't - eventually (after 5, 10, 15 years...) you'll probably be a seriously awesome portrait painter.
But, inevitably, you'll have paid a "slow, biting price". No doubt there'll have been plenty of struggle, monotony, rejection, and failure along the way. •
Don't ever let doubt about something prevent you from taking action!
Sometimes the ego can seem like it distracts us from following through on the things we need to do. Instead of judging it, how about you come to terms with it. From my experience judging our ego makes it go out of control. So what I do instead I make negotiations and come to terms with it. I made an entire video on how to make your ego your best friend. You can check it our here: https://youtu.be/eFQ9W-RoikY
Do you wish you were able to make more time to look after yourself but just can’t seem to find the time or don’t know what to do? These are just a few amazing ideas from @advocatingmentalillnesses that can be done every day and only take a few moments for an immeasurable amount of happiness and self-love 💗💜💙💚

Find someone who doesn’t clip your wings. You embraces your dreams + who loves you even when its not easy. Who gives you freedom to just ‘be’. I never thought I’d find someone who could handle my independence, my craving for life in its fullness + my sense of curiosity for what else is out there + what more I can do.
We’re almost 4 years deep in this relationship after knowing each other for 10 + what I’m learning is that even when you’re with your best friend + most equal match, that this sh*t still takes work.
But, that you can find the right person to do life with, on your own terms.
Co-existing + growing together isn’t always easy, but the adventure is so worth it.
What has your current or past relationships taught you about love + freedom? The good, bad and/ or ugly? Lemme know ✌🏼
All of us have a deep need to be known by our partner. We have a story that wants to be told. Sharing our story keeps us connected to ourselves, and it builds a connection with our partner. If you have shame in your story allow your partner's compassion to melt away the fear and shame you've been carrying with you and show you unconditional love and acceptance. Moments like those, create deep bonds of intimacy.

Dominatrix Secrets: The Ultimate Seductress
Click on my bio link for more information & to enroll. I have included a payment plan the Wednesday evening class starts today 5/22 7:30p to 9p Eastern.
You know, those things you do every single day that you never think twice about.
The way you talk to people and deal with different situations.
How you order your latte.
How you handle work, relationships or that last minute cancellation.
9 to 5 corporate setting or are you more of an artist or creative freelancer?
Close friends circle or a social butterfly?
Bookworm or Netflix binge-watcher? Or both?! You have unique strengths and talents that make you who you are.
I forgot the exact statistics but the chance of you meeting someone with your exact strengths are like 1 to a million.
Don't quote me on that but it was some crazy number.
So I did an online strength test a few months ago (even though I was skeptical) and I was shocked with how on point it was.
It was like a breakdown of my personality.
For example, one of my natural strengths is Intellection.
I like to think a lot.
I am drawn to solve problems and having deep conversations with others but I am also very content being on my own.
My time alone is when I get to reflect and be creative.
Being clear on who I am has allowed me to make it a priority so I can be the strongest version of myself.
As cheesy as it sounds. 🌿What you can do...
1) Pay attention to the situations you thrive in, that makes you feel good and that are effortless.
2) Honor them.
Don’t do things just because you think you should.
It’s freakin’ exhausting to be someone you’re not so just enforce your own awesome traits instead.
Now, what’s something you can either stop or start doing today that will allow you to be true to yourself?
I’ll start in the comments...

Yes!!!!!! You should be picky about your circle - surround yourself with beautiful and positive people who love you and believe in you 🌟
Because I have too much good to do. Critics are everywhere. Correcting them breaks your focus and wastes sacred time and energy. Responding to them steals your joy. There are (3) types of people: Losers, leaners, and leaders. I refuse to educate critics, motivate them, or associate with them whatsoever. Proverbs 26:4 states, "Answer NOT a fool lest you also be like unto him." I care more about what God thinks of me more than what critics think about me.
** Change Your Thinking And Instantly Boost Your Motivation Now! ** If you look at it at one point, there's nobody in the world who can motivate you into doing anything. It's basically you alone who can motivate yourself to pursue your dreams and succeed. So, how do you motivate yourself in such a way that your only option is to succeed? There are plenty of ways to do this and you'll find that it's not that hard at all. .
💪🏼 Take Care of Yourself
Most of the time it's easy to neglect the simple things that could motivate ourselves. Personal grooming and health can easily be overlooked which is always a big no. Before you do anything else, be sure to put your personal welfare on top of the list. It's not being greedy or anything but rather giving yourself assurance that if anything goes wrong, you could move on any time. Buy yourself a new suit, a nice looking tie, and a pair of good looking shoes. Investing in yourself never hurts and it retains motivation. Just don't overdo it though.
😁 Be Happy!
The most important thing of all is not the money or your career but rather the happiness that you felt from start to finish. Enjoy yourself! That's a mandatory approach that you should not overlook. Although pressure and stress may always accompany you, don't let it hinder happiness. It's the ultimate incentive that you could get in this life. Motivate yourself through happiness. However you may define it, being happy is one of the most powerful motivational techniques since the existence of man. After all, if you're living your life without happiness, you're not living life at all. Be happy, feel motivate, and enjoy the beauty of what life has to offer.

It’s time to pop bottles! And by pop bottles, I mean sparkling apple cider, which btw if you haven’t tried is the bomb.
I’ve just come out of one of my busiest seasons ever. I launched and created my new program, the Alcohol Free Accelerator - an 8 week coaching program packed with everything I’ve got when it comes to sobriety. My clients are thriving and I couldn’t be happier.
I just spoke to over 200 people at Camp EDC and yesterday turned in a massive essay to SELF magazine, which will be published soon.
I don’t say this to brag, but rather to speak to how I made myself level up. There were many times in the last couple months where I was maxed out and challenged with getting it all done. I was in overdrive managing it all a lot of the time.
I kept saying to myself, like the little engine that could, “I think I can, I think I can.” I caught myself on multiple occasions saying out loud: “you’re almost there.” By there, I mean able to come up for air.
I have finally arrived at this finish line. It was a push, but I made it happen and I’m proud of everything I’ve created.
If you would have asked me 10 years ago if I was creative, I would have laughed with a big fat no. Quitting alcohol opened up the flood gates of creativity for me. I’m almost never *not in a creative flow now. I can honestly say I love the life I live, even when I’m challenged.
I’ve learned that how we perceive challenge will dictate our reality. I choose not to complain or whine, but to keep moving forward. That’s not to say I don’t have bad days, because I do, but I choose not to focus on them and rather focus all my energy on what I truly want to create.
I’ve found that most of the time when we are challenged it’s because we are being called towards something greater. And my view on that is always that I’m ready, now.
But first, it’s time for some R&R in Venice Beach. Here’s to creation, pushing through our limits, passing the finish line, never giving up and seeing our challenges through. Oh and to celebrating WITHOUT alcohol. 🎉 #partysober

[5 Books that Changed my Life] 📖
I was recently going through my bookshelf and thought to myself, WOW there are some amazing books here that have dramatically changed my life, my mindset and impacted the way I lead my life and set my goals.
The craziest part...I never really considered myself "a reader" or "a book person". Definitely not like my mom; she reads a book a week (at least!). It took me a while to crack open my first books, but once I did, now I can't put them down. Sometimes they are paperback and sometimes it's an audio book - I love both at different times!
I'm in a huge life chapter of personal growth, business growth and mindset mastery, so the majority of the books on my shelf are of that nature. I enjoy books that open my mind to new thoughts, challenge my boundaries and expose me to bigger ideas and bigger ways of thinking.
Looking at my shelf, I only have ONE fiction book on it! But it's an amazing one - and I've listed it below.

I’m gonna be real with you: I used to be a serious mama’s boy and sought after women who matched the qualities of my mom lowkey 😂😂😂😂🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣😂😂😂😂😂😂. I expected them to shower me with comfort, love, and acceptance because I didn’t love myself 💯% and didn’t do the healing work like I could’ve done. Buy anyways, to the meat and potatoes of the post. “When men grow up in households where the mother showers them with constant attention, it’s like a drug for the little boy. So he decides to do whatever she asks him to do because he wants to make his mama proud of him and shower him with approval. Men like this have what’s called “momma’s boy syndrome.” Here’s an excerpt from Robert Greene’s book “The Laws of Human Nature”: He’s driven and ambitious, but his life is hard. It’s a harsh, unforgiving world out there, and it’s not easy to find any comfort. He feels something missing in his life. Then comes along a woman who is attentive to him, warm, and engaging. She seems to admire him. He feels overwhelmingly drawn to her and her energy. This is the woman go complete him and to help comfort him. But then, as the relationship develops, she no longer seems quite so nice and attentive. She certainly has stopped admiring him. He concludes that she has deceived him or has changed. Such betrayal makes him angry. This male projection generally stems from a particular type of relationship with his mother—she adores her son and showers him with attention. Perhaps this is to compensate for never quite getting what she wants from her husband. She fills the boy with confidence; he becomes addicted to her attention and craves her warm, enveloping presence, which is what she wants. When he grows up, he is often quite ambitious, always trying to live up to the expectations of his mother. He pushes himself hard. He chooses a certain type of woman to pursue and then subtly positions her to play the mother role—to comfort, adore, and pump up his ego. In many instances, the woman will come to understand how he has manipulated her into this role, and she will resent it. She will stop being so soothing and reverential. He will blame her for changing, but in fact (Cont 👇🏾

This week on ‘5 Questions With’ I interviewed Nicole Giordano, founder of @startupfashion, an online resource and community supporting independent designers around the world with building their businesses. She helps these designers screw the traditional fashion business rules, create their own paths, and build businesses they truly love. Sound like something you’d be into? Check her out!
