A LESSON FROM #KOBE

I believe in GOD, I was baptized and raised in a Christian church. God undoubtedly puts each one of us here with purpose, how dedicated we are to fulfill our purpose as we enjoy the fruits he planted for us … is up to us. Kobe left the biggest impact on us as he could. He gave us everything he had while he was on the court. He taught us drive, consistency, determination, courage, and most importantly HEART. I’m still in disbelief, I didn’t know him personally but I felt his impact through his spirit & his energy. I listened to his retirement speech, in it he said “It’s not about the destination, it’s about the late nights you stay up working hard. The early mornings you wake up and work hard. That’s the dream.” While I can’t stop envisioning the reality of his family’s present state, I can clearly see how he filled his purpose. Life isn’t about us, it’s about how we use our own life to leave a lasting impact on the …

Inventory of energy …

Your devotion to being the best version of yourself is a direct reflection of both your focus and your perception of your own self worth. Not everyone is concerned with being their “best,” and that is ok! My desire to be my best stems from religious roots. I grew up as a Christian in the church, I enjoy helping others, and I often take on way more than I should but I always get it done. The fire inside me that keeps me chasing this “best” version of myself is something God chose for me and I am VERY in tune with my intuition and my duty as a child of God, so I just keep going, hoping that others find their drive through me sharing mine. As of late I have been taking inventory of my energy. I have been executing new things that I set out to do, I’ve opened my circle a bit, I have met some new people and I’m sharing my energy with them … which can be tricky. Energy …

Comfortable or Uncomfortable?

Comfortable or Uncomfortable? Have you gotten the two confused? So many of us consider doing something new “uncomfortable” without realizing you may already be uncomfortable. Waking up to the same frustrations you had about your lack of progress in the fitness world is not comfortable. Eating fast food and then feeling like crap afterwards is not comfortable. Being overweight isn’t comfortable. Not being the weight you want to be or looking the way you want to look isn’t comfortable. Not getting active, exercising your heart day after day despite your wants to start, is not comfortable. In the same respect, going to the gym before work despite how exhausted you are isn’t comfortable. Disciplining yourself & staying committed to your diet when you go out with your friends is not comfortable. Missing out on brunch dates, and leisure time because you have to workout isn’t comfortable. Being vulnerable and going in the gym without really knowing what to do with the equipment is isn’t comfortable. Having to commit to your fitness goals despite your lack …

DISTRACTIONS

Happy Friday! Today we are talking distractions … they come creeping up in every form as soon you decide to better yourself, beware! They can come in the form of: self pity, people, assets, fake love, hate, appealing opportunities, & so on. I have found it to be extremely important to be aware of distractions because of how much power they hold. They can deprive you of substance, hold you in the same place you’ve been, and most importantly steal your FOCUS. The way I steer clear of distractions is #1 having a goal at all times & #2 having a plan to achieve the goal. In the beginning of my fitness journey which was 10 years ago I remember having tunnel vision. The fitness world was SO new to me, it was intriguing because there is so much to learn, so much to master, & so far to go. I found myself detaching from old habits, friends that didn’t share the same interest, & overall distractions that consumed my time. But somewhere along the way I lost …
