  • Want real mental toughness?! It has nothing to do with your resolutions and everything to do with how you show up to those triggering situations we all face.
•
You know the times....when something happens and your heart starts to speed up, hands get a little shaky, head gets cloudy, and the thoughts start coming in fast and furious. That's your clue it's time to pause so you don't walk away feeling like an asshole for that same reaction you keep promising yourself you're gonna change!
•
We all slide into negative behavior, at least once in a while, and we know, deep down, what needs to shift to transform our part during the hard times. Our most profound periods of personal growth stem from the worst of circumstances. Bad times can be flipped into what's actually needed to get your shit together, so view those conflicts as an opportunity to become the person you know you're meant to be.

  • As I began to share my heart, experience, and story, I also began to see who I wanted to be; around others doing the same. I saw the need to reevaluate who I was sharing with.

Who allowed me to share without the need to argue? Who listened with empathy, and sought to understand? Who did I feel ease around? Was passive aggressiveness in play?

Did I truly trust this person? Was I sharing to be understood? Was I sharing to receive something?

This transition felt scary. I was doing the right thing, But the right thing was uncharted and felt isolating.

When we start sharing our story, there may be pushback. (usually from those closest)

Your perspective is everything. You get where you’re going by honoring where you are.
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Be open, but never silenced
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
“That’s your perspective”, said in a condescending way, is and will always be a way to invalidate you.
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Who we share with is just as important as what we say. It’s tender, raw, and ‘oh so powerful. 🧡

  • The first time I was homeless I was only four years old.

This year I'm going to share more about who I am and where I come from in hopes that it helps someone out there cope with or understand their own shit. At the very least know you're not alone.

I grew up on the Northside of Chicago. I never knew my father and years of my childhood were spent either homeless or trying to avoid it. Safe to say that when most people on here say they're "poor," I often wonder if they truly understand what it means to be poor.

From an early age I was conditioned to put one thing before all else-

Survival.

My mom is a tiny but fearless woman with a fiery spirit, a rough exterior and a heart of gold for those she cares about.

But ever since I was little I was the one that had to worry about bills, appointments, school, if we were getting evicted again, or if I was eating cheese sandwiches that day.

Because of this I grew a heavy chip on my shoulder at a young age. I channeled all my energy into being successful in everything I did.

As I grew older and became more and more enthralled with sports I slowly gained confidence.

But self-confidence isn't as much of a characteristic as it is a fading state of being.

Poor kids don't play basketball because they want to be Mike, they play it to escape from reality for 11 points at a time.... The rest of this post available through the link in my bio.

And if this helped one person it was worth sharing it. We're all human. We all deal with the same shit. Sometimes just by sharing it you're allowing someone you may not even know overcome their own feelings. I hope I did that today.

  • I would always remember a particularly depressing night when I allowed perfectionism to get the best of me because the voices of my past would get the best of me! ⠀
⠀
I faced a couple of terrible problems:⠀
I am not good enough to actually do the work and will fail ⠀
I don’t know how to do what I want to do and need to learn more ⠀
People will think I am crazy and that it’s not perfect enough ⠀
⠀
Did I give up? Thankfully, no. Instead, I wholeheartedly devoted myself to taking action when ideas inspire me and excites me so much that I can’t help but take action. ⠀
⠀
I have written 5 books even though English is my second language and grammar mistakes happen. I have published coloring books with hand drawn art and the lines were not perfect. I launched my business not knowing much about how to do so successful right off the bat. ⠀
⠀
And I see so many people not take action immediately because perfectionism is getting in the way! ⠀
⠀
I'm running a 30 Day of Imperfect Action Group Program! ⠀
⠀
30 Days of Imperfect Action where you join others in taking action every single day on the ONE thing you’ve been putting off and start feeling confident in your own abilities and finally create a bit of a change in your life! ⠀
⠀
Oh, how I wish I had this program when I was first starting out!⠀
⠀
It took me years of consuming all the content and trial-and-error to get here... but with 30 Days of Imperfect Action, you will get the daily accountability and weekly group coaching calls to get over own fears and doubts and finally leap towards your goals. ⠀
If yes, then sign up today!⠀

  • This☝🏾is how I used to get around...
.
.
.
I developed a muscle condition in 2009 in my early 20’s- everything I was working towards was put on hold. The only way I can describe the condition is, imagine someone who has Parkinson’s with aggressive muscle stiffening-27/7. It was debilitating and exhausting.
.
.
I didn’t want anyone I knew to see me that way so I just hid as much as I could. .
.
On one exceptionally painful day I remember thinking, I HAVE TO FIGHT THIS. I have to figure out how to get myself out of the spiral of stress, pain, fear of never getting better, the guilt of having my mom take care of me basically 24/7 or, it will kill me. Literally. I could feel it- and it scared the heck out of me. I refused to quit so I leaned in hard.
.
.
My mindset became whatever it takes to heal myself is what I will do. The CHOICE to shift was my first win since the onset of my symptoms. All I had was belief that eventually I would figure out how to manage the pain. I couldn’t think beyond that because the pain was so high.
.
.
But, once I got to the point of being able to manage it, talk about it, and leave my house without passing out which took me a few years, lots of specialists, trial and error of different meds, your gurl Britt figured it out 💪🏾
.
.
One of my deepest beliefs & sayings is, “things happen FOR us not to us.” Had I not gone through that fight for so long and figured out how to thrive despite it, I wouldn’t be where I am today. I probably wouldn’t have said yes to my favorite job/gone back to my office, wouldn’t have reconnected with my besties, wouldn’t have had the courage to start a business that I love, & wouldn’t be able to wear amazing heels 👠. Oh yeah, probs wouldn’t have met my hubby either! Where I am today is pretty friggin’ great. 
My point is that you have to take control of your future as soon as you can. It’s okay do have down times but don’t let them linger. You can say why me or you can pick yourself up and fight 💪🏾. I bet you’e already on your way ❤️
So, who are you fighting for?? #wheelsdownwheelsup #talkaboutit #fightforit #win #dontgiveuponyourself #dontgiveup #shareyourstory #10yearslater #bestdecadeever #shego

  • So the world seems to be pretty crazy lately so why not do something about it? New Year’s Day I met up with an old friend and her family that met up with another old friend and her daughter. We spent the day at the beach and I befriended this little girl. I buried her in the sand, we looked for shells and watched teen titans(she had the classic one so I knew this kid was cool!) and when we were getting ready to leave the beach I thought why not have a little more fun, so we feed French fries to seagulls and it was a blast! You know with everyone really trying to show off on social media by trying to look cool and rich, I wanna be that old person feeding pigeons at the park with the kids enjoying the simple things. It was just a simple, cold, French fry in the bottom of the bag that would have gone to the trash but instead was hand fed to seagulls by a little girl and now on social media for the world to see. I just hope it inspires someone to go and make someone else’s day, even if it’s one French fry at a time 😁(also it’s from @burgersandshakesok yes I love them!) #motivationmonday #motivate #behappy😊 #makefriends #sharethelove #shareyourstory #birdfeeding #seagulls #slowmotion #sony #sonyalpha #videooftheday
  • So the world seems to be pretty crazy lately so why not do something about it? New Year’s Day I met up with an old friend and her family that met up with another old friend and her daughter.

  • I struggle with insecurity. In a couple areas particularly. Don’t we all have them though? And what our personal insecurities are, is just that. Personal. Mine may not be yours. And yours may not be mine.
+++ What they are doesn’t really matter. What matters is how we are choosing to deal with and working through them.
+++ So how do you deal with insecurity? Ever pretended it wasn’t there? Put on a front or tried to hide it? I have. But that only temporarily covers up the root problem, right? It’s like putting fresh paint on an old house.
+++ Here’s the deal: God knows what our insecurities are. Satan also knows what our insecurities are. 
God wants to use us WITH our insecurities to bring Him glory and minister to those around us. 
Satan will use our insecurities to try to tell us that they are ‘reasons’ and ‘proof’ why we CAN’T do what God wants to us to do.
+++ So who are you choosing to listen to? 
Insecurities just remind us how much we NEED God, driving us to our knees and begging God for His help and strength in our lives. Every. Single. Day. 
I’ll admit I have my days I fail at having the right mindset about my insecurities. Badly. And other days I am victorious. Greatly.
+++ The real triumph for all of us here is when we are open with God and others about our insecurities, acknowledge them, and then make a choice daily to trust God and live and serve through them.
+++ It’s also helpful to write down specifically what the insecurities are, and then write down what the Bible says concerning those areas. Commit key encouraging verses to memory. Come up with positive uplifting thoughts to replace the bad negative ones.
+++ And then next time you find your insecurities taking over your life or you start slipping into negative thinking; you will have practical artillery to fight with.
+++ I’m still working in this area of my life and growing on this journey, and I pray that these thoughts encourage you on yours 🤍🤍

  • ⁣Do you have a vision?⠀
⠀
If you are intending on making the most of this life you want to have clarity on your vision! There are so many ways you can do this, use a journal to write it out, purchase a planner that gives you a template, use Pinterest to put it into pictures and create a vision board. For me I love to write it out and then Create a visual on Pinterest and a vision board that I have on my work desk. ⠀
⠀
If you are reading this and feeling that you are lacking direction, give yourself 30 minutes this week to get super clear on what you want from your life and then create your vision! ⠀
⠀
We have one shot at this life, be all in on yours! ⠀
⠀
Once you have gained clarity revisit your vision at least twice per day and visualise everything that you dream of, and of course get up tomorrow and take action!! Watching it unfold is an incredible experience and remember to keep on elevating, expanding and thinking bigger!!

  • Many companies realize the great importance of telling your story with the world – you inspire, motivate and create loyal customers/fans by sharing WHY you do what you do. Use social media, potentially traditional advertising and video to capture stories. More companies, schools, associations and even Fortune companies are NOT sharing their story. Before you share your story, you must discern WHO you are, WHY you do what you do and know the best way to share. Whether you need new business, build brand, fix a broken one or simply compete in the world today – knowing your story and sharing it the right way is vital to survival.
•
***Most companies forget to share their story with their employees or educate/train them on the brand of the company and what that means to them. YOU MUST DO ALL OF THESE THINGS and we can help with each step.
•
Great example of a company sharing a story – 3M is a tech/science company humanizing what they doing by sharing WHY they do what they do. Watch their video!
•
“We are letting the world know who we are and why we do what we do every day,” said Eric Quint, 3M vice president, chief brand and design officer. “3M employees are motivated to find solutions that connect with customers and make a meaningful, positive impact in the world around us. In our new brand campaign, we are excited to invite everyone to see the people behind the science, and how we are making a difference. Sharing real life stories of our scientists represents the heritage of 3M and leverages the strength of the brand across each of our businesses to inspire people.”

  • Realizations on the plane ✈

I've had a few bad experiences flying to Florida in the past, so I asked Krishna/God to help me remain calm and trust in Him. As we're getting ready to take off, I start doing my daily Japa 📿 (mantra mediation) and the pilot announced that it was going to be a bumpy ride. Before my mind had any time to respond to that, I found myself distracted by the joyful laughter of a baby held by his mother in the seat in front of me. It reminded me that I should always feel safe and blissful in the arms of my sweet Lord. She began to bounce him on her lap, and he smiled and laughed even harder. The plane started bouncing and I literally felt like I was being held and bounced like a beloved child completely at ease. It was a beautiful experience that I will never forget.

Just wanted to share ❤🙏🏼 I hope you're all having a wonderful day!
