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.

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 got home from watching the movie, Inside, Out.If you haven’t seen it, you must. It was awesome! If you want to understand how your emotions control your life, this explains it in a very fun and simple way. It is jam packed with how we deal with the events in our life. There’s the emotions of happiness, sadness, anger, fear, and disgust. The movie dwells into the mind of a young girl who’s parents decide to move from their small town to a city. She was so happy in her small town with lots of great memories. But, now she is in a new home,school, and environment that stirs up all kinds of emotions. To find her way back to happiness, she must get in touch with her sadness first. The movie also touches on core memories, imagination, the subconscious mind, abstract thought, and dreaming. As an empowerment coach, I found this movie a refreshing beginning course for anyone interested in wanted to understand themselves more, and understanding oneself is one of the most important reasons we are here for. So,do yourself a great service, have some fun, and learn how your emotions shape your life!

Life seems to be speeding up. Everyone seems to be in such a rush. There is even a term for people communing on the trains called rush hour. It even costs more to be in this time zone. What are we rushing too? When you are in a hurry, your mind is not in an orderly state. Hurry is fear, and consequently destructive. When we calm down things move smoothly and orderly. Everything is in natural time. Observe nature and you will see how life unfolds itself orderly and naturally. You cannot rush a rose bud to bloom, or a seed to germinate. Life is for expansion and fuller expression. When you understand that life proceeds out of itself in an orderly sequence of growth, you will stop rushing. You do not have to slow down but calm down. Your mind will then be in an orderly vibration to unfold into the beautiful manifestation you have visualized for it. So let’s all get into a calm hour, pay less and receive so much more.
