You are as young as your faith, as old as your doubt: As young as your self-confidence, as old as your fear. Samuel Ullman
This was the message from the crypto- quote I like to do every morning. This really hit home with me. When I doubt myself I question my ability to continue reaching for my goal. When I have a big goal it can be challenging. If I allow the doubt to take over it feels so heavy, which can make me feel older than I am. With doubt my desire can weaken and it pulls me down. But when I am taking positive action and feeling good, faith creates a feeling of youth and vibrancy in my body and mind.
The same is true for when I feel confident. I feel young and ageless. I can go on for hours performing a task and stay focused on my purpose. But when fear creeps its ugly head into my day, I feel tired, and just want to give up and tune out.
That’s why it is so important to keep your purpose, vision and goals in your mind at all times. Surround yourself with positive people who will lift you up and help you stay in the mind frame of faith and self-confidence.
Everyone can feel defeated at times. Life can be tough. With passion, faith, confidence and perseverance, you will have the energy, to get through those doubtful and fearful moments. Show up for yourself and be the best you can for today. Do what you can just for today and you will feel young and vibrant to follow through on your goals.

To Many of us are not living our dreams because we are living our fears!
What stops us from living full out and taking the plunge into a joy filled life? Why do so many people get stuck in the muck of the ordinary? I know it is fear! I know how fear can hold us back from living our dreams. Little by little fear can creep in through a thought, through someones criticism, through a disappointment, through a seeming crisis or any other devious way fear knocks on our door. If we let it in, it will reek havoc and quickly destroy all the good that is there waiting to be released. I have had many such experiences, which started very early in my life. Both my parents had many fears that got downloaded into my mind-body. As an adult I realized how these fears were preventing me from living my dreams. So I took an inventory of what I thought was keeping me from a joy filled life. I decided to acknowledge the fear, thanked it for showing up to try and keep me safe, and started to live my dreams.
Does fear still try to knock down the door, you bet! Every time it does, my faith gets stronger and I do something that scares me. It’s time you start living your dreams instead of living your fears.
Do 1 thing every day that challenges you. Every time you do, you will get more confident and the next time when fear knocks on your door and faith answers, no one will be there.
Need help in conquering your fears, call Monica today.

Take a leap of faith and begin this wondrous new year by believing. Believe in yourself. And believe that there is a loving Source – a Sower of Dreams – just waiting to be asked to help you make your dreams come true.

Wow, what a marvelous year it has been for me! I hope everyone was able to capture the moments of your life with joy and celebration. I have been blessed to have shared the stage with some of the best speakers in the world. Bob Proctor, Les Brown, Michael Beckwith, Jack Canfield, Mary Morrissey, just to name a few. I traveled abroad and I just returned from a trip to Alaska, yes, you heard me correct, Alaska. So many people asked me why I was heading to Alaska in the winter and my reply was why not? It was such a magical trip. Life should be a glorious adventure. If you have an opportunity to go somewhere, and do something, take it! Experience all life has to offer. Don’t get me wrong, I had some major challenges as well. I shared some trying times with friends and family members who are going through some life threatening illness and other changes that have tested their faith. I don’t think there is anyone who is not going through some sort of life change. The key is having the support and resources to navigate through them.
What is it that you want for your life for 2017? Do you want to travel to exotic lands, or perhaps you want to give your time to a charitable cause? Maybe you dream of starting your own business. Do you have health goals? Maybe this is the year you want to meet that special someone. Why not invest New Years day on thinking of the person you want to become. Write down everything you would like to manifest and see it all coming to fruition. Don’t waste another year just dreaming about it, take some action to create it!
Les Brown said, most people die at age 25 and don’t get buried until they are 65.
If you want to begin your New Year with a BIG impact, join me in an eight week Master Mind class based on the book Think and Grow Rich, by Napoleon Hill starting January 3rd, in the comfort of your own home.
Wishing you and your family a glorious Holiday and the very best for the New Year,

I love life! I am so grateful to be having the experience of being alive! Don’t get me wrong, I’ve had my fair share of heart-ache, sadness, tragedy and failures, however, I know that if I continue to work through all those challenges, that I will triumph and get stronger, wiser and more appreciative of this very precious gift called life!!
To really feel alive you have to embrace the essence of life and give it all you’ve got! I see so many people afraid to live. Their afraid of being alive, and so they are slowly dying. Their afraid of failing, afraid of trying, afraid of giving themselves over to the pure rapture of living.
I don’t think that people are afraid of death as they are of living.
Why not allow yourself the freedom to let lose and give life your best shot! After all if you want the best, you have to give your best!!!
The best way to really feel alive is to look around you, and become aware of everything. There is consciousness in everything. Everything is alive whether it appears to be inanimate or not. Then focus on your amazing body! Wow, how precious it truly is!!! You have been giving this amazing gift of life! So go ahead and fully feel alive!!!
Need help in understanding how to live full out and feel alive?
Call Monica today and begin to live with passion and purpose!!!

All is consciousness and bliss and that is all there is. Do you believe this statement? And if not, why not? The intensity of energy is power. This energy is the one substance of the universe. It is coursing through your being, it is all around you, at all times. It is only a shifting of your energy. When we connect with this energy it provides us with all the power we need to live a conscious and blissful life. Unfortunately, most people don’t believe this and recharge through battery power, (limited supply) and then run out of juice, only having to replace their batteries. We look for the next high through food, substances, people or any other temporary fix to give us the illusion of feeling this bliss. However if you learn how to connect to the infinite supply of energy, you never have to worry about running low because it is always available. Tapping into the infinite, unlimited power is not a new way of life, it is only awakening to the essence of your authentic self. It is shifting your energy to a higher vibration. When your able to play with this energy, through understanding your emotions, (energy in motion) you begin to access the enormous power that is surging through your veins. Do you want to learn how to do this? Make the call!

Are you feeling cowardly or courage? In the movie the Wizard of Oz, the cowardly lion was just that,faint-hearted, timid and fearful. He acted like a big shot, chasing little Toto around, but deep inside he didn’t have any courage. I find that that people who have the loudest roar usually are meek and insecure.
” The fearless are merely without fear. People who act in spite of their fear are truly brave.” Jamesing A. Lafond-Lewis
The cowardly lion went from begin a coward to courageous by stepping up and facing his fears. We are all faced with difficult situation at times. How we handle and confront those challenges are how we move from cowardly to courageous.
Every time we move forward with courage, we gain faith, strength, and confidence that we have the ability to overcome anything that comes our way. I know in my own life, when I was faced to go back into my comfort zone or take the leap of faith, and I faced my fear, I was always guided by spirit.
So the next time you have a choice to be cowardly or courageous, choose courageous,and just like the cowardly lion, you will feel empowered and confident.

I just love being around people who inspire me. People who are upbeat, positive, and responsible. People who have been through adversity, however choose to overcome their challenges. Last night, I attended my toastmasters meeting and the members are people who inspire. One woman, gave her icebreaker speech that was so touching, personal, and inspirational, that you felt like you were right there, in her story. Wow. it was so good. That’s how we connect through the heart with compassion.
Another gentleman, gave an advance speech about, Kareem Abdul-Jabbar. He gave us all hand-outs on “20 Things Boys Can Do to Become Men”, by Kareem Abdul Jabbar. I learned so much about this great sports figure and man that it inspired me to want to be a better person. That’s what people who inspire, do. So, who are you associating with? Do you feel good around them or are they draining you of your vital life giving energy. See, you become who you associate with. I want to be a better person. When I am around people who are uplifting, positive, and responsible, I’m uplifted. Being around people who are being reactive, and playing the victim, is not healthy. The great thing is you can choose who you want to be around. I choose to inspire others so I hang with those same people. Choose wisely!

Courage, defined by the dictionary, means; 1- The state or quality of mind or spirit that enables one to face danger and overcome fear. 2- Heart; mind, disposition. Heart, as the seat of feeling . I love how the definition describes it as really about coming from the heart.
Courage is not about ego, it’s about feeling your fear and taking that leap of faith anyway. I know in my life, I am faced with challenging situations many times. If I quite my mind, ask God for help, then do the thing that I think I can not do, I am able to gracefully confront my fear and overcome the challenge. I become courageous. Every time I am able to take that step forward, a gain more and confidence in myself, and know that all will be provided for. It is an act of love, and love is all there really is. So, the next time your confronted with a difficult challenge, and aren’t sure which way to turn, you can navigate uncertainty with faith and courage. Trust in The infinite intelligence that is surrounding you always, and allow your heart to open to the answers. Act with courage, and you will always come from love.

I don’t know about you, but sometimes my life seems more challenging then other times.. Right now I am going through some major life decisions and challenges. It can appear difficult and stressful, if I didn’t have the tools, to know how to navigate, through these obstacles. When life seems to throw me some curve balls, I take extra good care of myself to stay connected to my higher self. I meditate, dance more, take long walks, eat well, keep my thoughts focused on the outcome I desire to happen, read inspirational books, journal, connect with empowering friends, and breath! I know that during these times of great difficulties, is when I grow the most, so I really stay clear and focused on the desired outcome. If you stay true to yourself and do the work, you too can overcome any challenge. Stay with it, have faith, and know that greater and better things lies ahead. Where ever there is a great challenge there must be a great solution. That is the law of polarities. So don’t worry, worry is fear, stay in faith, faith is love, and you will discover your strength and confidence in any challenge.

I don’t know about you but this time of year always seems like I have more to do than usually. Many people become overwhelmed with the to do list, besides juggling day-to-day activities. The extra pressure of commercializing and the frenzy of trying to do it all can send you over the edge. So how do you stay calm under the pressure? I find that a daily practice of meditation, dance, and healthy food choices will keep me grounded and connected to Infinite Intelligence. So many people are confronted with health challenges, financial issues, and relationship difficulties, that anything else will create a feeling of anxiety. So STOP! You do not need to feed the system, feed your soul! Saying calm under the pressure takes practice. Turn off the telivision, turn on good music. Disconnect the artificial lights and connect to your inner light. You do not need the Christmas tree, the lastest gadget, or junk underneath it, to remind you of this wonderful time of year. The filling of joy, giving, and peace will radiate out of you when you stay calm under the pressure. The sharks may be swimming all around you but you are one with the universe.
