Old Habits Die Hard

Old Habits Die Hard

I read somewhere that a habit can be our greatest ally for positive change– or most frequent saboteur of personal success. Creating solid habits that align with our values are important to finding success but what about those habits that might be holding us back?

Here are 3 habits that are standing in my way of getting exactly what I want.

Skimping on sleep.

I don’t make sleep a priority even though I know how valuable it is. I average about 6-hours a night. For a long time I lived by the phrase “You can sleep when you’re dead.” I thought in order to be […] Read more

Reverse Habits…

Reverse Habits…

I’ve heard we overestimate what we can do in the short run and underestimate what we can do in the long run. Boy can I attest to that personally as I am a recovering procrastination-aholic. Sometimes I’m a head case. My mind moves really fast. I’m pumped about almost everything and it’s a challenge for me to tame my brain 🧠.As you will see my 3 habits I’ve been working to change are mostly about what goes on between my ears👂 .

1️⃣The Bookends of my Day

Pre-Planning your day for a business owner is clutch. 20 minutes 🕰of planning […] Read more

Being Successful

Being Successful

What makes a person successful?
💵 Is it money?
🏃 Is it fitness/health?
😊 Is it being happy?

I found an article that said this. “Successful people don’t necessarily consider themselves successful because they’re rich or powerful. Instead, they often talk about relationships, well-being, and societal impact.” YES! As I was writing this blog, I was thinking this exact same thing. I feel I am successful. Why? Let me tell you.

I’m a happy person. It’s easy for me to be positive and I rarely struggle emotionally. I work hard to get what I want and for some reason I almost always do. I’ve never […] Read more

The Secret Sauce

The Secret Sauce

Many of us go through our lives, envious of other people’s success at some point. Not knowing all the failures or hard work they put in to get there we just see the end result. Is it luck🍀, destiny or inherited wealth? Maybe…but I believe success is not limited. We can all find success but we need to be disciplined.

My top 3 daily habits that have put me on the road to success include:

1. Planning my day the night before

Each night I spend 10-minutes or so to jot down my to-do list for the next day. My dad taught me […] Read more

mrCPM 3 Habits for Success…

mrCPM 3 Habits for Success…

As the great Og Mandino wrote, “Bad habits are the unlocked door to failure”

On the other hand, good habits can bring us closer to our goal or mission. The definition of a habit, after all, is “a regular (repeated) tendency or practice.”

I encourage you to ask yourself the same thing I did a few months ago: Do your current habits bring you closer to or push you away from your goals? If your answer leans a little too heavily on the latter, then you might want to try “installing” some new habits into your daily routine. And […] Read more

Can’t Hardly Wait

Can’t Hardly Wait

The last few weeks of summer😎 are here. I have enjoyed the extra time with my kids. They make my heart❤ happy. We have had a summer packed full of activities with lots of new memories made. I have enjoyed the warm weather, the longer days and the outdoor time but I think I am ready for school to start. Why?

Disrupted routines. My kids are staying up later, eating more unhealthy snacks and spending way too much of their downtime on devices 📱. They seem to have forgotten which day of the week it is📆, how to flush a toilet […] Read more

Turn It Up…

Turn It Up…

This week is FUN Week from the Coaches… Something small or big that we are currently excited about.

Truth be told, I’m a podcast junkie. I love to learn and educate myself. I have this thing about educating yourself. Education feeds motivation. Knowledge is power! And when you continue to increase your knowledge you can begin to empower yourself and become unstoppable.

Lately I’ve had the opportunity to be on a few podcasts as a guest. The most recent was with my old great friend, Zeb Pascual, with his own Pascual Podcast. I love getting a opportunity to collaborate with other great minds […] Read more
