I strongly believe that when you focus on your own personal health and well-being and you continue to push yourself to your highest potential you can achieve anything you want in your life! So I want to thank you for stopping by to learn more about me and I can’t wait to share with you the story that got me to where I am today!
My story begins on a middle school day, and to be honest, this story might not be much different from your own. As I’m sure you know middle school is one of the most difficult times for all of us. It’s a time where we are coming of age, where we are figuring out who we are…let’s just say AWKWARD! LoL
On this particular day I decided that I was going to wear a dress to school because I thought it looked pretty on me. I went to school with my head held high and I thought this might be the day that my middle school crush might notice me!
Here is where my story gets a little sad…
At my middle school there was a group of boys that liked to pick on everyone! That particular day I was their target. While getting settled in my seat for spanish class one-by-one each boy came up to me and whispered in my ear how ugly I was, how fat I was, how unsuccessful I was going to be and how NO ONE would ever like me…
Until recently I had NO IDEA that this exact story was stopping me from achieving true success in my life!!
The Internal Struggle…
Now here is where I’m going to fill you in on how this story has affected my entire life and how it has literally stopped me from reaching my true potential in life.
You see, that day I took what those boys said as truth. That if I’m fat, I would never be successful, no one would like me and I’m ugly.
So during the rest of middle school and high school I really didn’t do much to put myself out there to learn or grow. I was in constant fear that others would make fun of me for how fat and ugly I was. I totally stopped myself from taking chances in life because of the story that I created for myself.
Not to say that I didn’t have friends or have my share of fun in middle school and high school…but because I took those words as truth, it really shaped how I chose to live my life.
A Clean Slate…
Once college came around I saw it as a chance to start over! There was finally hope! People saw me for me!! No one knew about my past. No one knew that I was overweight when I was younger…so my story began to fade. This was a chance to create a new life for myself! I finally had the opportunity to create a new story for myself. One of joy, happiness and abundance!
I started doing things for me, allowing myself to grow, really figuring out what I enjoyed and didn’t like so much in this world. I found out that I LOVE to dance, to play frisbee with no shoes on, lay in the sun and read a good book, I really learned what it’s like to truly love myself and how to take chances on loving others!
Once I let go of my old story and created a new one for myself, I started losing weight and I literally transformed into my perfect weight! I had an abundance of energy and I finally figured out how to live my life from the heart!
Return Of The Struggle…
After college I landed a job, I got into a serious relationship and things seemed SO amazing! Like I had finally figured out life! That I had received all I ever needed or wanted in life and everything was going to be easy breezy from this point on!
Well I was SO dead wrong! The economy took a downturn, money was tight, my boyfriend couldn’t find a job, we had bills to pay, we had fights almost every night, I wasn’t learning or growing at work, I was listening to clients complain about our services, how they were too expensive, how they were going out of business, how social media/seo doesn’t work….it was a rough few years for sure and my self-confidence took many blows.
Those few years took a toll on my energy and the last thing I wanted to do when I got home was to cook a healthy meal or get a little exercise.
Needless to say I started to gain weight and slowly but surly my old story began to creep up & grew stronger than ever! I started to tell myself that I was fat which would bring up all those feelings of “no one will like me” – “they must think I’m unsuccessful because I’ve let myself go” – “I’m ugly”
So once again I began to live my life as if that were the truth and stopped myself again from experiencing pure joy, happiness and all things good! I was in desperate need of something to come into my life to help me see the light!
Digging Deep & Letting Go…
Recently I was fortunate enough to go to The Unstoppable Entrepreneur event put on by Jonathan Budd and had a chance to do some real sole searching. We went through some really powerful exercises that help us remove all blockages that were stopping us from achieving true health, wealth & happiness in our lives.
To get a taste of what we experienced I highly recommend you check out my post on stopping blockages where I share one of the powerful exercises we learned that literally transformed my life!!
At this event we really had a chance to dig deep, really figure out what has been stopping us and most importantly we learned how to just….let go.
Once we realize that our stories do not define who we are today, that we have a choice to recreate our stories…we learn to let go.
And that my friends…is when we become truly unstoppable in life!
We all have stories that are stopping us from pursuing a life we deserve but how often do we really dig deep within ourselves to figure out what those are? I highly encourage you to take some time to figure out your story. Figure out what is stopping you so that you can really let go and live the life you were meant to live!
Once you do this you will finally figure out your true purpose and mission in life which will fuel you and help you achieve any goal you set for yourself! After doing this myself I finally figured out my unstoppable purpose & mission in life! What is yours?
My Unstoppable Purpose…
My purpose is to live a life of heart drivin leadership and POWER that will influence those around me to live happier & healthier lifestyles. I am power, I am strength, I am happiness, I am health, I am wealth and I am UNSTOPPABLE! I was put on this earth to help you discover your true potential & inner strength!!!
My Unstoppable Mission…
