“Most People fail, not because of their lack of desire but of their lack of commitment.”
Can you believe it’s December of 2019? Where has the time gone? As we complete yet another year on the calendar, what have you done this past year that makes you feel good that you committed to? Have you kept your commitment and promise to yourself on accomplishing your desires, goals and aspirations?
If you haven’t, what do you think is holding you back? What is it that gets you so pumped up and excited about starting something and then that drive slowly vanishes? I know for myself, that when I’ve planned on eating healthier, getting in better shape or developing my business goals, and I overdo it, I slowly start to make excuses to myself why today isn’t a good day to continue. Then little by little, I’m right back where I started, and nothing improves. Now I know that to get lasting results, I first must make a commitment and a promise to myself that I am going to follow through on what I truly desire. Second, I do not overwhelm myself with an all or nothing mentality. I have learned the Kaizen Principle. Kai=Change
Zen=Good. It means to become good through change. This is a Japanese philosophy of continuous improvement. It is a series of small incremental and daily routines done over long periods of time that will result in dramatic and lasting improvements. Wow, this has made such remarkable improvements in every aspect of my life! This was something I could commit too. With small incremental improvements, it’s like compounded interest. You get better and better at something over time. What do you want to change and commit to in the New Year? What ever it is you want to improve and change, you can make it happen. If you commit to taking little steps every day, where you will be at the end of 2020 will amaze yourself!
It’s always best to have an accountability partner to support you and keep you on track, so reach out and hire a professional coach that will encourage you on the days you want to quit. 2020 is the year of clear vision. Get started now. Change for the good is possible.

“Anything will give up its secrets if you love it enough.”
George Washington Carver
What do you need to do to give life your best? I’ve made a decision lately to give more of myself to life. I have always tried to do my best, but I feel like I can give more and be more. I just finished a course in C-IQ (communication intelligence) It was fascinating to learn all about the brain, neuroscience, and what emotions get activated when we talk with one another. Part of this is understanding our energy systems, spirituality, and social abilities. I have now bumped up my game to give more of myself.
It takes a lot of passion, hard work, dedication, commitment, sacrifice and love to do this! Are you ready to step it up? Are you ready to give it your all? You can do it! Just do a little more today then yesterday. Every day, decide to give more service, work a little harder, love a little deeper, play a little more, practice a little longer,laugh more, sing more, dance more, eat healthier, and open your heart wider!
Give life your all and life will give you more then you can ever image. You get out what you put in. Amaze yourself!

” Do what you can, with what you have, where you are.” Theodore Roosevelt
Creativity is a powerful way to celebrate who we are. It is a spiritual energy that nourishes our vitality. It replaces negative thinking with positive action.
How often do you put your creativity on hold? Between work, family and other obligations your creativity gets put on the back burner. We get stuck in the grind of just living rather that creating a life. Years ago when I was under stress or had too many things on my to do list, I would forget to add joy and fun into my activities. Now I know that what ever I am doing, where ever I am or have, I can add the element of creativity to it.
I spice things up. Even if I’m washing the dishes, I find a way to make it more enjoyable. I will get in a rhythm or if I’m cleaning I will dance. If I’m stuck in traffic, I listen to an audible book. If i’m working on my business, I try to take on a new approach.
Everything we do, can be a spark for creative energy to emerge. Our commitment to life is to tap into the creative energy that is inside us and all around us.
