You, my friend, are unique to this world.

There is no one else with your heart, your gifts, and your purpose.

It’s easy to forget that when we’re swept away by the requirements of daily life.

You forget how special you truly are.

You are here to create impact, to influence, to share your truth, and to make the wo...

Life is about 'AND'.

When you take full ownership of your life, you realise a lot of things.

One of those things is that you are 100% in control of yourself, your time, and what’s possible in your life.

Too often we adopt the belief that we “can’t have it all” or that we “must choose.”

We must choose a successful...

I know the term “addict” is not really a positive one. And the truth is, no addiction is really healthy, even ones that seem so.

So, let me clarify…

Despite what many people in the business world are teaching, there is a very simple way to move your business and your life forward.

It's not writing to-do lists, creating a strategic plan or, some other complex thing.

You want to get fit.

You join your local big box gym.

You show up on Day 1, fully committed, in your new fitness gear, and open the doors.

Suddenly it feels like all eyes are on you.

You walk to the treadmill and warm yourself up for 10 minutes or so.

Then it’s time to hit the weights. Except you have no idea what...

If you’ve been at the fitness game for a while, you may have jumped on and off the wagon a time or two.

And through that process, you may have picked up specific beliefs around exercise and nutrition “rules.”

Some examples would be…

“Don’t eat after 7pm”

“Lifting weights makes you bulky, so focus on yoga and card...

Not everything you’ve been told about food is true.

See, willpower is a finite thing, so when you try to control your food intake based on willpower, you will lose before long.

Instead, try the following:

1. Eat the most satiating foods to suppress hunger– protein is first in this category (so load up), followed...
