Never a bad time to do this. I want to start a Gratitude Thread below 🙏🏻✨ What’s one thing that you’re extremely grateful for. Type it in the comments. Speak it out loud. Feel it. Focus your energy on it. And soak in pure bliss for one full minute no matter where you’re at or what’s going on. We are BLESSED. Mine: I am so grateful for the troubled times for making me resilient af. And so grateful for my new pup Jaxon. Tag, you’re it! 🙂⬇️
I want to get super personal with my ladies for a moment. I remember not too many years ago, I came home from the job that I quit so scared of where the hell I was going to get an income from. My boyfriend was supporting me, my parents paid for my groceries when i texted them to transfer money (I was 19 years old ) and I continued to stay in bed depressed and a victim to my mental health challenges. I wasn’t sure of where my next check would come from but I was certain of one thing: I would NOT work a single day in my life doing something that I didn’t love. “Why Alyssa? You’re stubborn af. Sometimes you have to do what it takes temporarily” And I get that for some people but that’s not the case for me. Working a job I hated hurt and haunted me more than being broke ever did because of the way it affected my mental health. When I committed to living out the rest of my days doing things each day that empowered me and others, I wasn’t fully convinced that that was even possible. But deep down I knew “there’s more for me than what I am doing and experiencing right now” And so I said YES. Shaking. I said YES to my dream job. Being in a supportive & healthy “job” where it doesn’t even feel like work. Where I can work my own schedule and take care of my mental health instead of feel like I’m suffering by doing something that never felt right for me. I get to be around the most loving humans I’ve ever met creating financial freedom together. And most importantly, I get to show YOU how to do the same. I always love to say “you can too” because I was once skeptical & didn’t believe my dream life was possible. Similar story? DM me. Let’s connect 💕 YOU CAN TOO.
Let’s go Yankees! ⚾️
HOPE is passion for what is POSSIBLE. That’s all it took for me to change the course of my life. Having hope, faith & belief that there was more out there for me and that I was going to do whatever it took to make it happen. EVEN when I had 0 dollars to my name, no friends, dropped out of school with no plan for my future & completely ready to take my life. I STILL had a tiny little voice in my head saying “there’s more than what’s happening right now” I’ll be honest with you. Being in New York while currently struggling with a darker season of depression & anxiety has definitely been a little different. But one thing keeps me going each day & that is the pure fact that ALL things in your life (whether they feel good or bad ) are serving you whether you realize it or not. You can use your pain to serve a bigger purpose. You can change your situation right now even when I feels like you have no control. You can allow yourself to move through each season knowing that they are all here working for the greater good. You can take back your power and control and step into who you know you’re meant to be and do what you’re meant to do. Have hope. And turn that hope into PURPOSE.
I want you to think about something really quick: Stop basing your life off of CAUSE & EFFECT. “When I have this much money, THEN I will be happy.” “When I have this body, THEN I will be confident.” “When I do these things, THEN I will be successful.” & start CAUSING an EFFECT by already feeling what it feels like to have those things & be that person. When’s the last time you woke up in the morning & felt what it felt like to be the most successful, wealthy, sexy, abundant & badass version of you? When you already live in a way as if you have it all (because you DO ) , you will base your actions off of those beliefs therefore CAUSING those things to happen in your life. Too many people come to me discouraged because of where they are at mentally or financially. You’re stuck in the situation & circumstance of what you can SEE & have seen show up for you in the past. But when you can base your emotions and energy off of what hasn’t even happened yet, you are literally manifesting it into your reality. Want more mula & success & results? Have the energy & emotions of someone who already has that number in the bank & clients. Want more confidence & happiness? Have the energy & emotions of someone who loves the fuck out of themselves! Babe, stop focusing on what you don’t want, what’s happened in the past & where you’re at right now & turn your attention to what you DESIRE to have & feel. Xoxo, Lyss 💕 #lysstalks
“I’m grateful that you’re 23.” “What do you mean?...” I asked. “It means that you’re here. You didn’t take your life when you were 16 and 18, Alyssa” That was all that I needed to hear as I started to feel a little overwhelmed with some things in my personal life and business. In the middle of working, I started to feel unworthy. Like a failure. Like I wasn’t any where near the person I want to become and doing the things that I want to do. That there was no way I could achieve my silly dreams I chase after each day. I began to talk down to myself. And then I reached out to release this. And tears streamed out of my eyes like Niagara Fucking Falls. In one moment I completely doubted who i was and what I was doing and the next second I had full gratitude for the beautiful fact that I am here. I placed my hand on my heart and said “thank you” for simply breathing. For being. For feeling. For experiencing and most importantly, for CHOOSING life. It’s so easy to get wrapped up in everything going on in our worlds..but I encourage you to take some time to truly soak in gratitude for just being alive. You wake up and keep going. You’re doing the best you can. You’re learning. You’re falling. You’re getting up again. I’m grateful that you’re here ❤️ ... ✨ PS. If you haven’t yet taken my Hair Consult Quiz in my bio, get on it girl! I get to personally reach out to you & find the best custom & tailored vegan products for you! ✨
This isn’t forever. Everything is temporary. Hear me out. I had a pretty vivid flashback as I was pulling up to a Publix in my hometown where I grew up. I had my windows down, blasting Breezy’s new album (If you haven’t heard Heat yet...OH LAWD. My soul left my body lmao ) And I jumped out of my car to run in for some veggies because #health Okay let me be serious now lol.. When I got out of the car feeling great from my workout & ready to slay a call tonight mentoring my team, I realized it hadn’t always been this way. A few short years ago, I was having a panic attack in my car. I was so afraid of being around people & allowed my social anxiety to get the best of me. After trying to hype myself up and take one step out of the car, I cried as I pulled away feeling completely defeated. I’d go back to my parents house and lock myself in my room and waste my days away watching YouTube videos and Netflix when I desperately dreamed of having an impact in the world. Sometimes we forget how far we’ve come. And even more than that... we forget in the moment that EVERYTHING is temporary. Your pain isn’t going to last forever, but it’s time to make a decision to use that pain to be your biggest purpose. Don’t give up on yourself ❤️
Have you ever thought about a certain car or bought one and now you see it EVERYWHERE you go? Or a persons name pops up in your mind and they text you the same day or pop up in your news feed? This happens to me constantly and shows the POWER OF YOUR THOUGHTS. Your mind doesn’t care where you put your energy. But whatever it is you decide to focus on, it will begin to show up. Like errrrrrrwhere. SO... WHY DON’T YOU SPEND MORE TIME FOCUSING ON THE GOOD SHIT YOU WANT TO SEE IN YOUR LIFE? Focus on the new clients, the better relationship with yourself, the confidence you have, the finances, life, friends, etc...?! I double dog dare you.. Go into this week intentionally focusing more on what you WANT in your life instead of what you don’t want & you will begin to take actions aligned with those thoughts and then create it in your real life. BOOM. Manifestation 101! What’s one thing you’re going to focus and put your energy on this week that you’re going to attract? ✨
Abundance is your BIRTHRIGHT. #chilllllllls when I read this sentence yesterday. Everything that you’re setting out to accomplish in life? Dream BIGGER. I mean shit...mankind has literally traveled to the MOON....created little devices like the one you’re holding this very second that transmits messages like this one to be broadcasted across the world. We created global travel where we float in a narrow machine in the sky (talk about a magic carpet ride, Aladdin! ) Oh..and the box and wheels that we get around in on the roads? Man-fucking-made. Someone had an idea and dream to make all of these things happen one day. Now please tell me why you can’t impact others lives on stage, why you can’t build a thriving and successful business, why you can’t be financially free, why you can’t travel the world, why you can’t DO, HAVE & BE whatever it is that has been placed on your heart? We were designed and created to thrive. You didn’t just go through all of that pain to live an average life. What’s holding you back from living abundantly?
Amateurs sit & wait for inspiration. The rest of us just get up & go to work! Tag someone who you admire that HUSTLES! ⬇️
Felt like I was dreaming when I woke up this morning to a couple thousand dollar bonus check. Being able to spend time with family all weekend for my dads bday, brother in town, and Father’s Day, shop with no budget, hike up my savings account and have true freedom. Not having to take off of work or worry about finances and freely travel to New York next month and a weekend trip next weekend.. It’s wild that it’s only been TWO months working with a company that allows me to work from anywhere and create the life I always dreamt of as a little girl. Taking on FIVE more girls who have a heart to hustle, no excuses and whatever it takes mentality to create this for themselves. Dm me “I’m all in” if this sounds like you!
How I set myself FREE. Have you ever had someone say something to you and it’s completely winded your wheels? You may even think: “Who the hell does Stacy think she is. That low life biotch!!!” Well let me let you in on one of my most useful secrets for inner peace. EVERY SINGLE TIME that someone says something hurtful, mean, rude or negative about or to you... Understand this ONE thing: It has nothing to do with you & everything to do with them. Know the saying “hurt people hurt people”? It couldn’t be more true. I would have saved myself a lot of anger, spite and tears if I practiced compassion when I was bullied in my younger years. You set yourself free bc instead of letting their words get you down, ruin your day or even stay on your mind.. You can send them love knowing that there’s something deeper going on for them to say anything hurtful. This goes for social media too. Every time I get a mean comment, I immediately feel love for them. For we don’t know what they must be going through to have that type of hate. This week, try practicing love and compassion. Because at the end of the day, you can’t control what anyone says or thinks about you, but you can know for certain that you’ll handle it with care and never take any offense to it 💕 PS. For those who hurt me. THANK YOU. You helped me have a bigger and more loving heart.
It’s not that you don’t know how, it’s that you’re scared to take one small first step. It’s not that you don’t have time, it’s that it’s not a priority. It’s not that you don’t have the money, it’s that you don’t see the value in it. It’s not that you can’t, it’s that you don’t believe in yourself enough that you CAN. Drop the excuses and be real with yourself. WHY aren’t you committed? WHY aren’t you taking the leap? WHY aren’t you believing & trusting yourself? WHY aren’t you making the time and effort? Give yourself permission to tap into your fears. To lean into being scared and doubting. To accept that you don’t know what the road looks like ahead... And just GO FOR IT. Your excuses have only gotten you so far. Leave these behind and you’ll change your life.
YOU ARE NOT STUCK. So stop saying that and putting that energy out into the world. You are just committed to certain patterns of behavior that have helped you in the past. NOW those patterns have become more harmful than helpful. The REASON why you can’t move forward is because you keep applying an old formula to a new level in your life. Change the formula and get a different result. What are you going to do different every day this week to breed different results? Out with the old patterns, they don’t serve you anymore babe. In with the N E W ! #happymonday
HALF WAY MARK. And I’m calling you tf out. We’re already 6 months in to 2019... Are you living your best life? Giving your all? Surrounded by amazing empowering people? Mentally and financially thriving? Or are you still sitting on the sidelines waiting for the “right time”, waiting to “feel good” or looking at other people doing what you want to do and believing you can’t do the same. Most of you know my story by now but I want to sum it up again for everyone to hopefully kick your booty into gear on this midway mark of the year: I went from job to job, depressed and broke as a motherfucker, sitting in bed for MONTHS on end living at my parents house after dropping out of college and numbing my pain with food and Xanax and partying... To being the CEO of three businesses, my life, my mindset, relationships and future. And you know what it took? NOT waiting any longer for the “right” time, a certain amount of money, to feel good or be in a different place. Life is happening NOW. And I’m calling you out because I am NO DIFFERENT than anyone and I want you to TRULY understand and look at me KNOWING and believing what’s possible for YOU TOO. Because why the hell not? You were born and created and designed to thrive. But it’s your choice whether you’re going to be in the drivers seat and take control or watch everyone else do it without you. I’m taking on FIVE ladies for the month of June who want to be the CEO of THEIR life, who have a “whatever the hell it takes mentality” and are claiming their worth right now. DM ME “I’m ALL in” if you’re committed to making this happen for yourself by creating time and financial freedom online while being surrounded by the best.
Remember that rock bottom is a bittersweet place. Because when you find yourself face to face with your fears, you have no choice but to overcome them. When you no longer know who you are, you have no choice but to rediscover yourself. And when your entire life has fallen apart, you have no choice to rebuild it. You are the CEO of your life ❤️
Life won’t stop for your pauses & procrastinations. It won’t stop for your confusion or fear. It will continue right along without you. Whether you woke up today and you’re facing some of the toughest times of your life, whether you’re full of doubt, holding yourself back or not wanting to face the day, LIFE GOES ON. And you have the same choice at every single moment, every single day and in every situation: To be relentless in pursuit of your dreams and goals and what sets your soul on fire or settle and be comfortable (but never satisfied ) And listen, I get it more than ever.. I KNOW why people don’t just go for it or push themselves to living out their best lives...because when you decide to do the damn thing, you experience LOSS at the same time. You have to LOSE your excuses. Lose the comfortability of not being seen. Lose the fear of failing. Lose the doubt and begin to make sacrifices for what it’s going to take to win. But remember this today: you can choose comfort, procrastinating, doubting and fearing or choose growth.
DEPRESSION. (P.S. pic was taken when I felt pretty externally in golden hour lighting but was struggling the most internally ) Sometimes it’s situational. Sometimes it’s chemical. It can hit when life is going extremely well and you’re feeling abundant af and it can hit when you’re feeling low. I’ve always said and lived by this: Your biggest superpower lies in the one thing that you’re afraid to share. So I’ve decided to share this with you today. I’ve felt quite alone and in a depressional rut in the past 2-3 weeks. Most days it’s been a little difficult to get up and take care of myself and responsibilities. I haven’t eaten the best and I’ve put work before my health and the gym. I’ve doubted myself and been my own worst critic most days. But here’s what I want to share with you. I used to think that you couldn’t be successful AND struggle with mental health. I used to believe that I couldn’t be loved and live a beautiful life if I suffered from depression and anxiety and I used to truly think that I couldn’t be a LEADER if I still had my own battles. All of this is false and absolute bullshit. And what’s even more bullshit is thinking that there’s something wrong with you, trying to “fix” yourself and comparing yourself to others like you’re “less than”. I hope this could bring a little more relatable-ness (i made that a word ) to your timeline. P.S. I read this quote today: “in most cases, the universe doesn’t allow us to move forward until we’ve honored where we are now” Honor it. Allow it. EMBRACE it. Own it. And live life the way you deserve to WITH it 💕 #endthestigma
I want you to think about this for a second. Your current reality is a direct reflection of your inner thoughts and beliefs. I could discuss many different ways ranging from your present financial situation, your happiness level, relationship, confidence, health etc. But today I want to talk about FRIENDSHIPS. For nearly my entire life, I believed I wasn’t loved and accepted. I created this identity for myself after being severely bullied that there was something wrong with me. Then there finally came a time where I questioned this belief. I hated not having friends. I always dreamt of going on girl dates and having nights in with incredible company, but for some reason i didn’t know at the time, the friendships I tried to cultivate would fall apart, we’d become distant or there was just no connection there as I always put in the effort one-sided. This cycle finally ended when I discovered my true beliefs around friendships. When I’d meet someone awesome that I’d want to hang with I would quickly doubt myself and if they’d like me or want to be my friend. I’d think that I was “too much” and needed to be different to be accepted. If you’re struggling with TRUE and REAL deal friendships in your life, ask what beliefs you have around the subject. Open your heart. Give that little girl a hug who was hurt before and know..TRULY know that you’re worthy of beautiful, loyal, supportive and empowering friends. Once you proclaim this and align your actions with this new belief, you’ll find that there ARE people out there that would do anything to be by your side through thick and thin. Thank you @smallfrye94 for being that powerhouse woman in my life for me showing what real friendship looks like! ☀️👯♀️

Embracing the no makeup, curly hair boat days 💛
WIN THE MENTAL BATTLE 🧠 💪🏻 Every day that we wake up, we either get to be at war or live at peace with our mind. You know what I mean. And if you don’t, let me give you an example. You know you have to go to the gym or you KNOW you should get work done, but you feel like emotions are in control. You start fighting back and forth between doing what you should do or not, and it’s exhausting. You feel like your mind is running the show sometimes and you can’t catch a break. Sound familiar? So here’s what you do.. THE EXACT OPPOSITE OF WHAT YOUR MIND KEEPS TELLING YOU. WHY? Because you are going to create a new “default” for yourself. Right now your default may be caving in or allowing your feelings and emotions to take over. But start to do exactly what you don’t feel like doing and watch what happens. THIS becomes your new default. So the next time you don’t feel like showing up and you rather be lazy or watching game of thrones or out with the girls or staying in bed all day... you remember how damn good it feels and rewarding it is to do what you’re supposed to do. Recondition your mind. And if you feel like you’re at war each day with your thoughts, it’s not who you are. It’s simply a habit you’ve created and allowed to become your default. Time to reset it into something NEW and make THIS your new habit! Control your thoughts and you can control your life. Remember, YOU run the show here 💛
FEELS knowing that life is a whole bunch of ups and downs and in betweens but we CHOOSE & create our reality 🙌🏻 Make life one big happy dance. 💃🏽 Also, can’t help but feel confident af with this natural healthy hair 😛🧜🏼♀️ DM me “hair consult” to get you on the best products around!
How long are you willing to eat shit? In an instant gratification world and a timeline full of successes, it’s easy to get frustrated when you’re not seeing the money rolling in, the clients or customers begging at your door, the progress and momentum stacking up like a mountain. We have been conditioned to believe that just because we make one post, send one message or do one thing, we should see the results and progress. This is why your WHY is so important. Because when you’re putting in your 150% effort and getting no’s and being rejected and start to lose hope from not having the success, you have to believe in yourself. You have to have a big enough reason to why you’re doing what you’re doing in the first place...because let me tell ya. It’s not an easy road. You’re going to have weeks or maybe months on end where you’re planting all of the seeds and doing all of the things and following everything you’re supposed to do and it’s just not returning yet. But that’s the key word...YET. It takes time. THIS IS WHY THE 1% IS ONLY ONE PERCENT OF PEOPLE. Because so many give up before their time has even begun. So stop buying into all the people and things online that make you think for a second that it’s a quick and easy thing. You have to be in it for the long run. And if you’re not, you might as well quit now. So....are you willing to eat shit, fail, fall, cry, get frustrated or want to throw in the towel time and time again before you reach the place you’ve been working towards?
A note to those who are struggling right now 📝 “You just do it. You force yourself to get up. You force yourself to put one foot before the other, and God damn it, you refuse to let it get to you. You fight. You cry. You curse. Then you go about the business of living. That’s how I’ve done it. There’s no other way.” -Elizabeth Taylor We’re all different, but I’m only here to share what helps ME on my hardest days and being in a rough season in hopes that it can bring some peace to you as well 🙇🏽♀️ If you need a little break, take one. If you want to indulge in a pizza like I did tonight and release your emotions, then do that. If you need to vent, scream, or spotlessly clean your place while jamming out to music or lay in bed and do absolutely nothing, then do so. But here’s the key part: pick yourself up and keep moving forward. That’s all you can do in life, love. 😌 You can be a victim or you can be the CEO of your life, the boss, the one that’s in control.☝🏼 Feeling down? Rough day? Emotional?⬇️ My best piece of advice: Feel it. Acknowledge it. Learn what you can from it. Sit with it. Talk about it. Soak in the shiftiness for 5 minutes, then it’s go time. Boss up, queen 👑 Keep showing up. I see you. Oh, and keep showing up as YOU. Because THAT is your biggest superpower. These days don’t make you weak. They make you human. A relatable, worthy of love and wild & incredible success human. Xoxo, Lyss
Sooooooooo I got stood up multiple times this week. I had a few calls that I planned my entire day around either no-showed or cancel after the discussed courtesy time. How did I react? I threw my hands up and screamed and ran in circles and then jumped on a crack and broke my mommas back. Jk. I chilled. Lol BUT. Can I just tell you two things that I’ve learned from this? 1.The energy that you put out is exactly what you are going to attract! Don’t get me wrong, I am no perfect Princess peach, I had my fair share of times where I said I was going to do something, pinky promised (yes girl, PINKY promised ) and committed to showing up, and boom. Excuses. But what I’ve realized is that when you do this, you’re literally breaking trust with yourself and will being in people and things that are a reflection of these thoughts and actions. So check in with yourself every now and then and see if you are truly committed to the things that you said you were going to do! This is the number one secret to breeding confidence in yourself! The people who are thriving are showing the fuck up! 2.Work from a place of abundance vs. lack. Aka...NEVER BE ATTACHED TO THE OUTCOME. This literally goes for everyone, not just service providers, coaches and trainers! But when you have expectations for how something is going to turn out (or how you’d like for it to be ) and shit happens, RELEASE IT. Why? GIRL, there’s another door already opened for you. The world is abundant. You’re doing your part and there are people out there that need exactly what YOU have! When you are coming from a place of lack/attachment, you are scared, feel angry and disrespected and your EGO comes in. And this will NEVER create more abundance in your life. So...check in with yourself today and ask how you can show up more for yourself. How can you stick to the things that you said you were going to do long after you feel like doing them? And let go of the attachment. You are in control of two things: your attitude and effort. Now be an abundant butterfly because... THERES ALWAYS MORE! 🦋
Let me bring you into my little world 🌎 I get tonss of questions about who I am & what I do, so let’s just spill the tea and get personal and ish, dat cool? ☕️ Well I’m a 23 year old entrepreneur that lives in Tampa, Florida with 2 cats. So there’s that 🐈 🐈 I work from WiFi primarily. I got to travel to Mexico last month (peep my travel highlight, it was FIRE FLAME 🔥 ), have a few more trips planned this year ranging from New York, Jamaica, Cancun to Cali and more. I run four businesses that light my hiney on fire: my confidence & self-love coaching, business mentoring, hair care consulting & tanning company called Mad Tanz. I’ve always been different. Being bullied growing up finally makes sense to me because I’ve alwaysss had a bigger dream, vision and work ethic than my peers throughout my younger years which made them feel uncomfortable. I have lost MANY friends and family along the way. I’m not always motivated. 🙅🏽♀️ To this day I still deal with depression and anxiety, and to be real with you, I have many days where I don’t feel like showing up, but my WHY is bigger than my internal emotions and excuses. You have to become DISCIPLINED. I’ve always believed that I was made for more. 🙌🏻 We weren’t just placed here to pay bills and die. There’s a huge purpose that only YOU were designed to fulfill. I found mine through a shit ton of trial and error. (The four biz’s I have now didn’t just flow like a rainbow out of my rear end.. 🌈 ) My fav thing I get asked all the time is HOW. How did you go from suicidal and depressed to being in complete control of your life and my answer is very simple: I said YES. And figured the rest out later. When you realize it doesn’t take years to change, it actually happens in an instant… The instant that you COMMIT to change, the Universe will open its doors for you. And last thing. My biggest passion: helping others. More specifically, I’m here to show others what is possible but even more than that, I’m here to take you along with me to do the same. 🙏🏻 I’m nothing special. Just a gal in Florida with two furry kitties, a big dream and WiFi. #youcantoo
THE TRUTH ABOUT MY HAIR TRANSFORMATION. Okay so if you’ve followed me for a bit of time, I have not always had my long, hydrated and healthy hair. In fact, I chemically damaged my own hair after dying it bright red AND had a stylist chop it off when i asked her to thin out the crown section of my hair. I dabbled in a mother load of products, the main ones being Moroccan oil and Brazilian blowout and LOTS of biotin and collagen peptides. And let me be honest with you, I totally saw my hair coming back to life. HOWEVER, I wanted to take things a step further. Although I use chemicals in some of my makeup and fragrances, I wanted to do my best to have REAL CELL DEEP health from root to tip for my hair to get back the volume that I used to have before hair loss. This is when I discovered my holy grail products that I started using this year! Since starting on the products, I’ve removed all wax and residue from the high end hair products that were full of chemicals, my hair is ACTUALLY growing back from losing it and balding from a rough experience I went through last year and the best part is that it’s hydrated and left frizz free, voluminous and with no more split ends from the sulfate free, vegan and natural based products. This experience from being so embarrassed about my hair from the damage and balding (I wore hats literally every day ) to now feeling sexy and confident with my natural locks, I am so passionate to be able to share these exact products with you! So maybe you are like me and have had a similar situation with chemical and heat damage and hair loss or you just want to live ya best life with a bomb ass “do”... comment a “ 🧜🏼♀️ “ emoji and let’s find the best products for you and i can answer any questions you may have ❤️
If someone doesn’t understand your dream, it’s because it’s not THEIR dream to understand. It was placed on YOUR heart. I get it. I really do. It’s scary to be seen sometimes. It’s scary to put yourself out there and pursue what sets your soul on fire because what if they judge you? Criticize you? Talk about you? What if they see you fail? What if they just don’t get it? Good. It means you’re making noise and being seen. And that’s light years further than those sitting back letting their dreams soak in their heart without actually doing something with them. And here’s what I have to say about the opinions of others. If they aren’t where you want to be, have what you want to have, doing what you want to do or embody the person that you want to become.... Then THEY DON’T MATTER. I have had close friends and family put me down publicly for the way I show up and what I am passionate about doing. But again, they aren’t doing what I want, so why let their words marinate? Would you ever take financial advice from a homeless man? Exactly my point here. So stand up. Shine your fucking light. What do you actually have to lose? Friendships and people in your life? Good. They weren’t true supporters anyway. So SHINE. BE HEARD. BE MISUNDERSTOOD AND JUDGED. And do it unapologetically and confidently. I’m damn proud of you.
You’re so quick to share the good things going on in your life but why do you hold back when you’re struggling? Let’s just be frank here: We all struggle. We all doubt ourselves. We all feel inadequate or like we aren’t doing or being “enough” at times. I encourage you to give yourself permission to reach out or post or share when you’re experiencing one of those days or moments. Because we need to get over the bullshit that these things make you weak. Because they don’t. They make you human. And a damn good one. I used to think that I couldn’t be a strong leader because of my depression and that when I struggled on certain days (today being one of them while I’m sick in bed and a little sad for no apparent reason - totally okay with this and not fighting it ) I would be perceived as “less” and wouldn’t be taken seriously. But you know what makes you badass? And what makes you stand out? And what will attract the right people and things into your life? Being authentically you and owning where you are at in EVERY stage and emotion and situation of your life. So how are you, REALLY? I want to know how you’re doing below so I can send you some love 💕 allow yourself to share and open up. Practice this every day. We need more REALNESS and your uniqueness in the Universe 😌
This needs to be said. But more importantly, it needs to be HEARD. So take this in: What are you waiting for? Do you think that the most successful people in the world sat down, mapped out an entire plan, saved up “enough” money, waited till they were “ready” and in a better place? No. They just jumped. What’s my BIGGEST advice to be a wild success in every venture and area of your life? Take messy action. I had a crazy idea and urge in my soul that screamed SERVE. Be a coach. Empower other women. Step into your purpose. Allow yourself to be SEEN. And I didn’t ignore it. I also didn’t have a zamnnnn clue how I was going to do it. But I jumped anyway. And can I just be brutally honest with you? Why the hell are you waking up today wishing and dreaming for more but doing the same thing you did yesterday. That light you feel inside that’s yelling “I am made for more”... it was planted there because you are wildly capable of achieving it. So go for it. What are you waiting for?
“Back to reality” I was going through security in Atlanta yesterday and didn’t have to listen closely to hear the man behind me let out a deep sigh with that statement. Immediately I thought about how powerful you words are. Like yooooo, your words CREATE your reality. I believe that I’ve spoken every thing in my life into existence through belief and my words. Because when you say it out loud, you are proclaiming that belief into your life and will take action based on those beliefs. I’ve turned my “reality” into a nonstop vacation. Yes I have 15 hour works days sometimes, but there isn’t a moment that goes by where I don’t love what I’m doing. I remember when i used to get sad coming home from trips back to a life where I was working a low paying job, didn’t have supportive and empowering women around me, passion or financial and time freedom I want to let you in on a secret: if you feel like your right here and right now isn’t a total boss ass slammajamma, you have the power to proclaim something NEW and passionate and pleasurable into your life. Why? Well why not? Speak it out loud. Believe it. And if you really want to hear about how I took my life from the sidelines to CEO.. DM me “🙌🏻” to learn how to live your dream reality working from anywhere using this same device you’re reading this on. You owe it to yourself to become everything you’ve ever dreamed of being.
It’s all about mindset. From the moment you wake up, to the moment you rest your head at night. Everything is up to you. Your emotions, your thoughts, your perceptions and your reality. Every moment. Friday I arrived at the airport around 11:30 to depart to Mexico for my vacation. Storms came in and the flight got pushed back 2 hours. I sat at the bar and got to work to place some orders and check in on clients. Then it was pushed back another two. Then delayed again. Everyone’s flights were getting cancelled but we were hopeful that we’d be able to at least make it that day to our destination so we lined up to board around 8. I sat there for another half hour then got an update on my app that the flight was cancelled. You could hear everyone yelling and getting angry. On top of that, my entire all included ended up getting cancelled (with no full refund. Buy the protection insurance next time Lyss...will ya? Noted. ) and there weren’t any flights for another two days. So I drove from Orlando back to my parents house and realized I was locked out. Waited to grab my car keys to go to Tampa. Woke up the next day sad because my mind was in Mexico! So I booked another full trip and left 3 hours later as they finally had a flight available. So what’s my point. Well first of all. I sobbed like a baby because I wanted to be there and was upset that something out of my control happened to take away from MY vacation (how dare you weather!!! ) But I remained at peace. One thing I say to my Secrets To Self-Love & Confidence Course girls to picture themselves as a mountain. Still, peaceful, calm and unwavering despite the things going on around them. That’s how I decide to live my life each day. And THAT is where you experience true freedom. Knowing that you are ALWAYS in control of one thing..and that is YOU. Cheers 🥂 to a life that WE get the choice to create.
I can’t stop thinking about the days where I sat in bed completely questioning my life & worth. Now I have the freedom to do what I love each day, work from anywhere and take magical trips like this one. I’m happier than I’ve ever been. If I can do this, you can too.
