Surface success will never grow the soul
We need to value what can’t be measured in order to be in balance behind the scenes as well.
Surface success will never grow the soul,
Don’t let anyone convince you that success comes at the sacrifice of your family or your health.
And don’t think that a carefully constructed public profile of pretending to be ‘living the dream’ is doing you any favours.
If your wellbeing behind closed doors is parched and ragged…
then you’re missing the point
and missing your life.
Take care to have balance.
Forward we go,

It’s not too late
Your life isn’t a practice run…
It’s right here, right now.
Each and every moment is turning into a memory.
Play the leading role you were given, with all your heart and gusto.
Leave nothing to waste,
dive all the way in,
widen your beliefs to match the possibilities that call to you.
Back yourself 100%
You came here to be YOU.
Live out loud and embrace your life for the fierce, brief miracle it is.
It’s not too late.
Your future self will rise with gratitude for the irreplaceable gifts you create by living wide and deep now.
Own your life.
Live out loud.
Don’t stay in one repeat episode
These moments are your life…
Live them in new ways…
Climb out the other side of the bed each morning.
Don’t reach for your phone right away, let your soul come back all the way first.
Notice small things, kneel in the garden, the park, watch the tiny worlds living amongst the grass.
Remember how your heart beats for you each day, take deep breaths in return.
Work in a different room or corner of your home.
If you don’t work or you work for someone else, carry a stone or scrap of paper in your pocket with something valuable written on it.
It can be a quote,
Remember your world is bigger than 4 walls and it calls to you.
Love the miracle of being here, alive, playing yourself for a short time on this magnificent stage.
Love your character.
Write it new lines.
Remember to let it laugh, weep, dance, fall down, get up, love.
Think outside the old lines.
Don’t stay in one repeat episode.
This day isn’t a rehearsal for something ‘better’ up ahead.
Walk into new rooms, make new chapters.
Own your moments, your life is made of these.
Our time here is brief.
Live it wild, w i d e, open and deep.
You didn’t come here to fold yourself into a corner
The stress and fatigue live in the hesitation, the what if’s, the fear.
If you wanted a sign, this is it.
Whether entering or leaving, go there with ALL of you.
Back yourself, believe in yourself and do it in motion.
That means feeding yourself, staying hydrated, giving your mind a diet of support.
Walking through a door takes guts, that’s something to respect.
It’s a fierce act to live out loud in your life, to turn the door handle, to take that step.
But it’s what you were born for.
You didn’t come here to fold yourself into a corner.
You came here to become you.
Fear is a misspelling of fuel. Use the energy and move.
Take the step.
Your body knows, your gut knows, your evolution calls your name.
Go there with ALL of you.
There will sometimes be worthy things that pop up and need your attention from time to time. Fakes aren’t one of them. Haters are just fake distractions hoping to become more. Breeze past that trash. You do You. You amazing, worthy, powerful light. Keep Walking.

So don’t beat yourself up when you’re going through some of the less enjoyable bits…
Life is a medley.
No matter what you do there will be easier and not so easier times.
What matters is that you back yourself.
24/7 you have your human self to care for.
Treat that being with integrity and respect.
Your self care impacts the whole world for the greater good.
It makes you a whole being who by proxy gives permission and inspiration for others to do the same.
Take care of yourself and shine on my friend
Don’t dim your power for anyone
Power shot for you my friend…
Last week I quoted Ronda while speaking to a brilliant audience (at Aaron Sansoni’s Entrepreneurs Summit) with Netflix Co-founder Mark Randolph
So to YOU my wise friend, today (or any day) should you encounter someone who wants you to shrink to please them (or to fit a so called status quo)… breathe in deep and take up all that rightful, valuable space in yourself.
Never back down on backing and investing in yourself. You were born to be you. Don’t dim your power for anyone…
Authenticity, self-respect, bravery, permission to be ALL that you are… the world not only needs that stuff like insulin…
There are also others watching you, who by proxy will learn that it’s invaluable, imperative and necessary to back who they are without shame, without shrinkage or dissolution.
Go out there and live ALL that you are…
Makes me so darn proud and overjoyed when I see someone take up space and OWN their life.
Go, you good thing, GO live out loud.
I’m cheering you fierce from the sidelines, I believe in you, make sure YOU believe in you and don’t back down…
If your light is too bright, others can be warmed and inspired by it or buy shades and sit respectfully in a back row.
Shine on my friend!
Action must follow suit
Abraham Lincoln said, “Reputation is the shadow. Character is the tree.“
Our reputation is what we try to display and profile for others to see, but character is who we are when no one is watching.
Having Good Character means doing the just and right thing solely because it is intelligent, respectful and honourable to do what is right.
Anybody can dish out promises and good ‘intentions’, but unless action follows suit those same words disintegrate into empty waffle and impactful lies, leaving the recipient at the very least; rightfully wary.
If this becomes a repetitive action, it’s not an accident, it’s chosen behaviour and it will ultimately destroy trust, relationships, and sabotage success in life.
There is nothing more attractive, enjoyable and rewarding than interacting with and being associated with someone with good character.
Be of good Good Character in all things and only associate with those who possess the same.
Anything less is not worth the time, angst, cost or heartbreak.
Choose wise and only allow what is healthy to grow in and around you.
Life is too short to play games with peoples lives or to let others play havoc with yours.
