Overwhelmed, exhausted, at your breaking point. When it seem's like you just can't shake this dark cloud. It's OK!
If you told me a year ago that I'd be launching my own life coaching business, I probably would have looked at you like you were crazy. Hell, I was trying to get my own life in order, how on Earth could I help someone else!
That is typically how our brains work. Creating stories why we aren't good enough, qualified enough, pretty enough, ENOUGH! Last year I decided that I WAS enough, and I could gain complete control of my world and happiness. My happiness for so many years always came last. I'm a people pleaser, always have been. I crave that validation that people like me and that I am doing a good job at life. Here is what is funny, I was doing great at life. I will always treat people with the utmost respect, because I am a firm believer in treating people the way you want to be treated. The stories in my head were holding me back from acknowledging all of the things that I was doing right!
We all witness it and sometimes are a victim of living a double life. You know, real life vs social media! Lol. No joke, I was a mess, mentally and spiritually. But on social media I was living the dream life... of lies.
Not many people will admit when they need help figuring ish out. Honestly, how do you know when it's time to give in and ask for the help?
I'd been Facebook stalking my current coach, for a while. Trying to figure out how the heck this girl had so much to celebrate, like ALL THE TIME! Literally you guys, my girl is a legit expert at poppin champagne bottles lol. This lifestyle she was living caught my attention. She seemed so happy and free, and I wanted to know how I could get there. I desperately NEEDED to get to my happy place and I didn't know where to begin. Every time I thought I was there, I'd evaluate things and it was not champagne poppin worthy lol.
It wasn't until my she made her big announcement that she was officially resigning from her corporate job and solely focusing on living without limits and helping other women do the same. At that moment, I was in! I sent her a message asking for the details, and the rest was magical.
It took me a long time before I shared with anyone that I had a life coach. Like what? I could hear the backlash now. "Black people don't do Life Coaching." I don't know who on Earth created this rule, but it's so far from the truth and honestly, more people need to hear this. Self help can only go so far and reaching out to family and friends for advice, when their situation really isn't much better, is a recipe for disaster. It's like they say, you can't take advice for your marriage from a friend who can't keep a man. The company of misery will drain every ounce of life from you.
So here I am, happier than I've ever been! Like, LEGIT HAPPY! I've learned so much about myself on this journey. Now I stand, holding the keys to my dream life, and it's closing day!
I AM OFFICIALLY OPEN FOR BUSINESS! *pops champagne bottle*
If you are needing to know how you can start walking in your purpose, or simply figuring out what it is that you are meant to do, I have great news for you!
On June 20, 2017 I will be hosting a virtual workshop on Identifying You! We will dig deep into who you are, what inspires and motivates you and start opening those doors to your purpose. Spaces will be limited, so if you are ready, provide your information below and I will be in contact.
Thank you for all of your love and support. I look forward to working with you and helping you go beyond your limits.
Where are my Shaun T frans???
I remember the first time I was introduced to a Shaun T program. It was back in '08 or '09 and I ordered Hip Hop abs from a Beachbody infomercial because I wanted THE ABS. Lol! I remember doing the program with my cousin Amari in our living room...wait for it...in front of the a/c unit. Bahaha! We were really working up a sweat. We probably went out for ice cream and wine after that workout. I think it's safe to say that we probably didn't get THE ABS, but hell, it really didn't matter too much back then. Oh back in the good ol' days when I thought I was fat. I'd love to have that body back.
For those who are like, who is Shaun T?! Google my friend. I think it's safe to say that you have been living under a rock to have not ever come across an ad. Or a post from one of the billions of Beachbody coaches swarming the social media world. Before you "amen" to that statement, here is my disclaimer, I too am a Beachbody coach, lol.
Shaun T is the trainer who created programs like Rockin' Body, Hip Hop Abs, the dreaded Insanity (lol, c'mon seriously, who doesn't die in the warm up of that program!), Insanity Max 30, T25, and my beloved Cize, which is a dance fitness program that I teach.
Next week, June 12-18, 2017 is Shaun Week in the Beachbody world. There will be a week of brand new Shaun T workouts released to Beachbody On Demand each day. Beachbody On Demand is like the Netflix of Beachbody workouts. Take your workouts on vacation with you, to the gym, your living room, the park, where ever. I'd say it's the best thing since sliced bread, but we don't do carbs around here. Okay, who am I kidding gimme all the carbs. Balance right?! Ha!
I want you to be my special guest next week to get in a good sweat and just be in a positive atmosphere. So if you want in on the fun provide me with your info below and you will get a link to access the workouts.
Click here is a special message from Shaun T himself.
