“To succeed in life, you need three things: a wishbone, a backbone and a funny bone.” ~ Reba McEntire

Amazing time last night with the Impactivist Toronto group. If you’ve taken in any of @tombilyeu’s @impacttheory material than you know what this group is all about. Thanks @danielbreez and @cwkellyfoss for inviting me to speak and thanks to everyone there for the great questions, conversation and motivation to keep growing! Awesome way to kick off 2018🤗

Getting back to getting my back back💪🏼. Two fairly serious injuries (shoulder&hip) left me in perpetual rest mode for a good chunk of 2017. The time I took off heavy training was good for my recovery, but wreaked havoc on my mental state. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Working out not only gives me an endorphin boost that day, but it gives me goals. A sense of accomplishment and progress. I was fairly aware how important “growth” was to me, but it became unmistakably clear this past year - in a not so great way. When one of the main ways I experienced growth was removed from my world, I felt like my identity crumbled. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Now, as I get my workouts (and myself) back on track, I’m using this experience to find the positives.
1. I discovered just how important growth is to me, so I can be diligent to always make it an integral part of my life.
2. I discovered new and different ways to feel growth.
3. I learned to track progress in many new areas of my life, so I could prove to myself I’m growing, even when it doesn’t feel like it.

“You’re what you are and where you are because of what’s gone into your mind. You can change what you are, you can change where you are, by changing what goes into your mind.” ~ Zig Ziglar ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Today’s #WhatchaReadingWednesday is a little different because I’m highlighting an author, rather than a particular book - primarily because he has too many great ones to post separately. Zig Ziglar was one of the first ppl I started paying attention to when I began focusing on personal development. His methods are simple, his lessons are universal and his southern charm is timeless. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
His classics like “See You At The Top” are great reads if you’ve never heard of Zig before, though I would personally recommend seeking out some Zig Ziglar audios because I quite like his voice☺️. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
There is also a podcast (called The Ziglar Show) where a lesson from Zig is shared and then discussed by the host. I like listening to these as frequent reminders of Zig’s foundational teachings (see my story for a link to an episode). ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
A couple more Zig quotes for good measure😜: ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
“People often say that motivation doesn't last. Well, neither does bathing - that's why we recommend it daily.” ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
“You can get everything in life you want if you will just help enough other people get what they want.”

“I will love the light for it shows me the way, yet I will love the darkness because it shows me the stars.” ~ Og Mandino

I always forget about time lapse until I see someone else use it lol. Anyways here's a #tbt to @nowcreates Holiday Jam featuring @danielfrancavilla @goswish @tbydaniel and Moi!

It's time for #WhatchaReadingWednesday 📚🤓 The Four Agreements, by Don Miguel Ruiz is another one I like to re-read often. At different times in my life one agreement will stand out more than the others. For example this year, keeping agreement number three - “Don’t Make Assumptions” in the forefront of my mind has helped me in countless situations. Who’s read this one?

After being sick and basically dead to the world for the last 3 days, all I have today is gratitude. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Gratitude that I feel much better. Gratitude for the sunshine. Gratitude for the mental clarity and focus to work today. And most of all, gratitude for that virus that knocked me down, because I needed a reminder of how incredibly fortunate I am to be healthy and live my days unencumbered by pain or disease. I vow to never again let it take an evil virus for me to remember how grateful I am for my health🙏🏼

I’m speaking this Thursday at FuckUp Nights Toronto @fuckupnightsto and I want you to join me! Tag a friend you want to attend with and I'll select one of you at random to win a pair of tickets. Winner announced by 12pm tomorrow (Tuesday Dec 12th). See event link in bio / instastory for more details. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
And if you’re wondering, “What's Fuckup Nights?” Here’s what it’s all about. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
👉🏼Failure is a part of any success story, but we don't talk about it enough. We've all been to plenty of events where people tell you how they hacked, hustled, and created their success, but very few where someone gets up and says "I totally messed up, and this is what you can learn from it." ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Fuckup Nights is a global speaker series where stories of failed businesses and projects are told, questioned and celebrated. Each speaker is given 7 minutes and is able to use 10 images. After each speaker, there’s a Q&A session, as well as time for mingling and beers!

🔺Red🔺They say that Red represents power and courage, energy and passion. Red is assertive, daring, determined, enthusiastic, impulsive, exciting, and aggressive. Red represents physical energy, lust, passion, and desire. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Red is hot, strong and stimulating. Studies show that Red can create physical effects such as elevated blood pressure, enhanced libido, increased respiratory rates, enhanced metabolism, increased enthusiasm, higher levels of energy, and increased confidence. If Red can do all that, maybe we should all have a little more Red in our lives. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ But...deep down we all know the truth - That Red makes us think of Love. It’s not the colour Red that’s all powerful, it’s Love. Re-read this caption replacing the word “Red” with “Love” and you’ll see for yourself ;)
