Day 19 of #365daysofgratitude After a busy week, it’s time to relax in the bath and mentally prepare for tomorrow. I’m so excited to be running my first Vision Board Retreat in an amazing Bedouin tent in central london. Providing our guests with the space to define their dreams and create a Vision Board that will effortlessly attract their ideal outcomes.
😎☀️🌊👙Just found out that I earned our family a cabin on the Harmony of the Seas🛳 headed for the Bahamas next Spring! Our cruise is officially booked!✅ —
The ability to earn vacations is one of my favorite things about running my own home business!👍🏻These trips provide me great incentive to work hard toward my goals and provide amazing vacations for my family! —
Hadi girl is a bit stunned by this news, but she can’t wait for this vacation either😂
The first major obstacle that you'll face is starting in the face of fear and doubt. The second is the valley of the shadow of death. The time when you are struggling and growing and the results aren't what you want them to be.
Fear and doubt will tell you to quit, but you should never quit anything because it is tough. You should quit (or pivot, depending on your perspective) only if you realize your plans are not going to get you to your long term goals.
If they are, you need to persevere in the face of tough times and slow progress. If you make it through the valley of the shadow of death, you deserve to win.
And remember, as Tony helpfully points out, you're way farther ahead than you would be if you weren't trying.
You have to want to succeed, you have to want to win. You have to want it so badly that you become unstoppable. When you adopt the mindset that you have to win, you have to learn and you have to grow, you simply can't lose, because losing becomes unacceptable.
How many of us have them? ... when we project ourselves, habits, expectations, beliefs, past experiences onto others ...it’s often unconscious but can definitely hurt feelings.However, paying attention to the advice we give, and the way we perceive events that happen to or around us is important bc it’s the lens in which we see the world. 🌎Advice is often a direct reflection of our own experience and may not apply to the person whom you’re providing advice too etc. I wish we could watch projections as a highlighter in the air. It would be like a ping/pong being bounced around the room from person to person creating the coolest abstract design ⚡️I recently had an experience with a friend that caught my attention. I often do things for friends that I feel can help, support and/of empower them in some way shape or form based upon what’s been shared with me via conversation. ☀️I did for him what I’ve done for lots of my friends. I was taken aback by the 1st, 2nd and 3rd verbal statement made about my gesture. I realized his response is a product of his own experiences and whether or not my gesture exists within his own actionable vocabulary. It’s not personal ... although sometimes it can feel that way at first 💆🏻♀️For me... it was regular ... for him ... he eventually appreciated it (I think) but I found the thoughts that crossed his mind beforehand ... interesting. 🤔 Anywho, #projections can hurt feelings and sometimes be harmful. All we can do is be aware of our responses and feelings and checkin with ourselves before making assumptions. ✨ We’re all doing the best we can and the more love, understanding and good energy we can put into the world ... the better. ❤️We all project and #selfawareness is growth and powerful. .
Sometimes we all forget to pause our busy lives and appreciate life.
For one minute, walk outside, stand there, in silence, look up at the sky, and contemplate how amazing life is.-Rhonda Byrne
THE NEXT LEVEL OF LIFE IS ON YOU!
I've always believed in doing your best, not for praise or glory, but for your peace of mind and to prove your worth and awesomeness to yourself. Do it so you can pat yourself on the back for a job well done, and done to the best of your ability because well you can't count on anyone else to do it. Sometimes the environment you're in makes it impossible to do your best. It sucks the joy out of you. It changes you. It will take awhile, but hopefully you'll recognize it for what it is, and make a change. Get out of any toxic situation that does not make your spirit lighter. My goal is always to be happy, to grow and yes to be light and love. Today I am lighter. Always grateful to God, my support system and the Universe for having my back. I may not know what the future holds, but I'm moving forward with renewed focus, optimism and peace into the light. ❤️ .
“ PRESERVE YOUR ENERGY. “ Something @roxanneivy told me the other day which I have been pondering over since. Today it really cemented in my brain and I have decided to act upon these words. In fact, it has been added to my list of mantras. I cannot continue to distribute my energy so freely, I am tired. I am exhausted. I need a break. I must protect it at all costs. I am in the process of changing and everything I’ve been through and experienced is beginning to make perfect sense. Nothing happens by accident.
I’ve spoken more about this on my recent post at the @cherryrevolution . Have a read 🙈. #DEATHTOFAKINGIT

It’s 2018. People have big dreams. Kids wanna be more creative. People don’t want the traditional path. But when they talk about their dreams to others, they get discouraged. A school recently told kids that they should dress up as their dream jobs but excluded all the creative arts. They said anything but youtuber, singer, actor, artist. If creativity isn’t encouraged as a kid, the kid won’t be any more creative as an adult. Encourage thinking outside of the box. Let people do what they can to build their own skills. I’ve been told many times that there are too many people trynna do music/acting/entertainment. There are a LOT of people in the world... pretty much every job has lots of people. So let people pave their own paths. Oh, and new video in BIO to describe in sounds what I felt. Happy Friday everyone. Ali out🤚🏻👋🏻👋🏻👋🏻 •
Everyone is busy fighting their own battle. Of course there'll be people cheering you on, motivational speeches or even motivational pages like this but as someone once said "motivation is a fire that must be lighted from within, if someone lights it chances are it'll burn but briefly". Find that spark that makes you want to be a better you and use it!
