117: Don't BLOCK Your BLESSINGS  

Naturally, especially as woman (although this most definitely can go both ways,) we tend to deflect compliments, which I translate into “blocking your blessings.”

Today’s quickie is all about receiving. Accepting and fully embodying what it feels like to be love and be loved.

“If someone goes out of their way to compliment you and you deflect it, you may actually be hurting them.”

As you know, giving compliments is a brave task. It can be used to break the ice on a first date, or a way to get attention from someone you admire etc…So just as much as it is brave to GIVE the compliment, it is equally as brave if not more, to fully RECEIVE the compliment.

“By not accepting a compliment, you are blocking the fact that someone observes something amazing in you and they are wanting to celebrate with you.”

As humans, who want to remain “humble,” we try to either turn the compliment completely around and end up complimenting them OR we tend to neutralize the compliment but putting negative talk around it.

“Accepting a compliment is a self-love practice!”

Stop having to have a reason for why you do something good for yourself. Knowing you are worth it, is reason enough!

116: Make Your Passion Your Online Platform from a Fitness Influencer and Entrepreneur Amanda Bucci  

Starting out in the fitness world doing Body Building competitions, Amanda shares with us how it all began.

“I started doing fitness because I wanted to look better and feel better, like anybody else.”

Always having a passion for working out and staying fit, Amanda needed the extra push to level up her mindset and her gym routine, if she wanted to reach her goals.

Going back and forth on different meal plans and diets was her lifestyle for a bit until she began what is called “flexible dieting.”

It is essentially basic nutrition put into your daily practice in terms of changing your body composition. Depending on what your body goals are, either to put on muscle or to lose body fat, there are plenty of ways to do so and to do so HEALTHILY, which Amanda is a prime example of!

At the young age of only 23, Amanda is already such an amazing influencer for both the young & older generation! Having an immense following on social media, has made it possible for her to reach her 400k+ followers in an impactful way.

“It is not about focusing on your number of followers, it is about spreading a message that people connect to. People want to see how what you’re doing can connect to their life to make it better.”

Not only is she knowledgable in the fitness aspect, but after much hard work in the business, her marketing and social media tips and strategies, are the bomb! Speaking with her today, I felt as if I were speaking with someone my own age. Her insights are incredible and inspiring. She is a complete powerhouse!

115: Get Out From Under The GRIP of Your NEGATIVE STORIES  

Coming back from last weekends 3-days of bliss, I wanted to share one of the most important topics I touched on at the event… "Getting rid of the negative story about yourself.” If you truly observe and listen to those around you, especially your tribe, you’ll come to know that SO many of us share that same struggle or “story.”

“When you become vulnerable enough to tell this story to others and let your walls down, something beautiful is going to happen!”

Releasing these stories will take a weight off your shoulders like you’ll never believe. You’ll begin to grow and elevate in ways you didn't even know were possible and who knows who you may influence around you while you do it…it’s a win/win situation. I

t is time to recognize the difference between stories you may have adopted from the people around you and the stories that you, yourself truly believe in.

You can ALWAYS choose again.

112: Shamanism and Coming Out Of The "Spiritual" Closet with Alyson Charles  

Alyson Charles may not look like your image of a Shaman, but this former national champion athlete’s meditation program was the cover story in Marie Claire Magazine July 2016 issue. Her ability to heal and share ancient, sacred knowledge and divine energy with others has also won her accolades from Oprah, who named hers a "Top Meditation to Try.”

Charles is also a top-rated radio and TV host who works and partners with many fellow CEOs and celebrities. Since being called to the Shamanic practice, Alyson has become internationally known and shares her Rockstar Shaman story of awakening, clairvoyant readings and top methods and practices around the globe at speaking engagements, TV shoots, events and healing retreats. She has even headlined at New York Comedy Club.

Alyson has worked with renowned brands, including: Oprah, The New York Times, Forbes, Marie Claire, ELLE, Nat Geo Channel, Bloomingdales, ABC Radio, SAMSUNG, Amazon, Yahoo, and many more. Growing up in a small town in the Mid West, Alyson’s upbringing was very fitness-driven.

“I ran my first road race before the age of 3!”

Being exposed at an early age to acupuncture and hypnotherapy, holistic practices were nothing out of the ordinary to Alyson. Although she was in touch with the holistic and spiritual way, she says it all tied in to her love for running and staying healthy.

“I truly feel like I was made to become a long distance runner, to connect to Earth and my physical vessel, quicker.”

Fast forwarding to the future (present day) Alyson enlightens us with the knowledge and true meaning of a Shaman and her personal Shamanism ways/beliefs.

“Within my Shamanism, I am very connected to Mother Earth, our planet Earth. I ground down into her and she rises up into me.”

Alyson shares beautiful, holistic and spiritual knowledge to awaken our spirits and allow us to connect to a higher power, whatever that may mean for you personally.

She is insightful and inspiring. truly unstoppable. I am honored today, to bring Alyson onto my podcast to spread stories of her miracles, love and light!

“If you want to do something good for planet Earth, then tend to YOU. Tend to your own inner frequencies and vibration. That is the greatest gift you can give so you can emit that light and love.”

111: What's On The OTHER Side of FEAR?  

Like the old saying, “You are what you eat,” the same applies to “You are what you think.”

One of my favorite quotes that I have read lately is by the genius himself, Albert Einstein. “Imagination is more important than knowledge.” Why you ask? Because knowledge is “what is.” It’s the study of factual things and events, but imagination…it’s a world of endless possibilities, it’s the ability to make your dreams a reality.

As I prepare for the Bliss Project (which is in less than 24 hours!!) that quote holds a special place in my heart as I create the content to change and ROCK over 350 women’s worlds this weekend!

Anyone can teach knowledge and facts but the Bliss event came out of something I personally desired and imagined. It came from a place I wish existed, so I made it exist!It is a safe place to meet and connect with a tribe, unapologetically as yourself! So…as living proof that you can make anything a reality, I am here to shout it from the rooftop, that everything you want in life is on the other side of fear! No one said it would be easy, but let me tell you…once you get to the other side, the feeling is beyond anything that you could possible imagine.

“Inspiration for me is something I seek out, every single day. I want to be surrounded by it.” - Lori Harder

109: Learn The Secret Handshake With The Universe  

Just when you start to feel overwhelmed (and trust me, we've all felt that way, you are not alone!) Remember that there is always some part of the day or the task that you can be grateful for.

Only 7 days out from my biggest event of the year and believe me when I say…I’m feeling a bit overwhelmed. But instead of sinking into the dark hole, my weeks mantra is, “I love that I get to do this!” I can’t even imagine not hosting the Bliss Project. “It is like I would not be fulfilling my life’s calling.”

Be conscious and aware that every experience that comes your way is an opportunity. An opportunity to choose love and bliss or to grow and overcome!

You can’t “be jealous” of what others have, if you aren't willing to put in the work for it. To go through it and to GROW through it.

“Visualization is like a secret handshake with the universe.”

Seeing your future, and visualizing/planning your future is the key to creating a life you have always dreamed of. The faster you say YES to your dreams, the faster your blessings will appear. It is about stepping straight into your fear, and letting faith take it from there!

She is also known, as “The Spa Dr.,” and was the first woman licensed as a naturopathic doctor in the state of California, appointed by former Governor Arnold Schwarzenegger to California’s Bureau of Naturopathic Medicine Advisory Council.

Dr. Cates shares with us, that as a young child she was always sick. Whether it were allergies or a low immune system, her parents were on the hunt to find the right doctors and right treatments to help cure Trevor. It wasn't until they finally landed in the Holistic Doctors office, that Trevor found the answers. From that point on, she knew she wanted to study natural medicine, to help people with their same problems. Attending and graduating from the Naturopathic Medical School in 2000, Dr. Cates has been practicing ever since. Her name “The Spa Dr.” arose from working in several world-renown spas.

“I truly believe that good skin comes from 80% dietary choices and 20% what you put on your skin.”

107: THIS WILL MAKE YOU HAPPY!  

"What keeps me happy, is moving. Moving forward in any form."

It is important to pick the area that you want to have progress in, first.

I truly believe that by feeling good health wise, it will fully support all of the other things that you want to focus on. Maybe it's not like you to grow two things at once, and that's fine! Being true to yourself and being able to recognize that you work better with one sole focus, is absolutely okay.

106: Life Lesson From 15,000+ People That Will Make You Happier with Amy Newmark  

Publisher, editor-in-chief and coauthor of Chicken Soup for the Soul, Amy Newmark was a writer, speaker, Wall Street analyst and business executive in the worlds of finance and telecommunications for more than 30 years. Today she is publisher, editor-in-chief and coauthor of the Chicken Soup for the Soul book series. Since 2008, when Amy, her husband, and an investor group bought the company from its founders, Jack Canfield and Mark Victor Hansen, she has published more than 100 new books, doubling the number of Chicken Soup for the Soul titles in print today.

As publisher, Amy is credited with revitalizing the Chicken Soup for the Soul brand. She redesigned the look of the book covers and interiors, and changed the format of the title so that the books can cover topics of interest to today’s readers. This has led to national bestsellers such as Chicken Soup for the Soul: Think Positive, Chicken Soup for the Soul: Messages from Heaven, and Chicken Soup for the Soul: Angels Among Us. By compiling inspirational and aspirational true stories curated from ordinary people who have had extraordinary experiences, Amy has kept the 21-year-old Chicken Soup for the Soul brand fresh and relevant, and still part of the social zeitgeist.

Amy graduated magna cum laude from Harvard University where she majored in Portuguese and minored in French. During her junior and senior years, she researched and wrote a thesis about popular, spoken-word poetry in Brazil, which involved living in Brazil for several months, traveling throughout its impoverished northeast region, and meeting with poets and writers to collect their stories. She is delighted to have come full circle in her writing career—from collecting poetry “from the people” in Brazil as a 20-year-old to, three decades later, collecting stories and poems “from the people” for Chicken Soup for the Soul.

Amy works alongside her husband, Bill Rouhana, CEO and fellow co-owner of Chicken Soup for the Soul. She and Bill are the proud parents of four grown children and in her limited spare time, Amy enjoys visiting them, hiking, and reading books that she did not have to edit.

Once taking over the Chicken Soup for the Soul brand, Amy and her partners have extended the company much further than just books. Can you believe they even have the top-line of dog and cat food!? They care about their pets just as much as they do themselves.

Amy is an incredible example of a powerhouse business woman. Just listening to her speak, it is obvious she is passionate about her work and it most definitely shows in the outcome!

“Continuously reading all the stories in our books reminds me how grateful I should be for everything in my own life because I am exposed now, to what other people go through.”

She teaches us how important it is to realize how lucky you are and how each and every one of us is here to serve and help those in need.

“I find that the one thing that connects most of the stories I have read, is people saying 'I had no idea I was capable of this. I had no idea I had this much strength.'”

She was a great reminder for me today, that we all already have the tools we need within us. “We can all be our own mechanics of our lives!”

105: STOP SUFFERING Over Your FEARS  

"We teach what we need the most”

Planning for my largest event of the year, The Bliss Project, coming up next month, I have been overwhelmed with emotion and planning but at the same time, I wouldn’t trade this time of year for anything!

“No matter where you are in your journey, you elevate! You set goals of what’s next and what’s scary. What else can I do? And how else can I grow?”

We’ve all had the attack of the “You’r not smart enough” or “You’re not good enough” monster (which I am having right now,) but then I remember…this is EXACTLY why I do what I do and preach what I preach.

“Tell you heart that the fear of suffering is worse than suffering itself.”

-Paulo Coelho

So as I sat here today, equally as excited as I am scared, please know that you are NOT alone with your feelings. You are not doing life alone and you are not dreaming alone!

“Turn your face back towards the sun and you will immediately be helped, if you just ask for it!”

104: How YOU and YOUR FAMILY Can Become MONEY SAVVY FAST with Adam Carroll  

Adam Carroll is an internationally recognized speaker and thought leader in the field of financial education. He’s presented at over 600 college and university campuses, hundreds of leadership symposiums and countless local and regional events. Adam's TEDx talk at the London Business School has been viewed over half a million times on YouTube, and his work in financial education led to the crowd-funding and release of the student loan documentary Broke, Busted & Disgusted, coming out on Netflix this December. He is the author of Winning The Money Game and The Money Savvy Student, and the founder of MoneySavvy.com. Graduating from college quit some time ago, Adam ended up not only with a diploma but with a ton of student debt.

“While I was there, I lived like a rich college student, like most kids do today. But realized the error in my ways when I quickly became a broke professional.”

Luckily for Adam, meeting his girlfriend (and his now wife) during his senior year of college, they collectively put their heads together and found a way to blast through all of their debt, two years into their marriage!

“She told me 'Get rid of your debt or I have to get rid of you'”

It then occurred to him, that it is really quite simple to eliminate debt, and why wouldn’t he start to share his money savvy tips with everyone else? So he began teaching his methodology.

“My wife and I lived off of one of our salaries and used the other to while away our debt.”

Writing his first book, Winning the Money Game, led him to speaking opportunities on college campuses, which then again led him to a great opportunity to create a documentary coming soon to NETFLIX! (I cant wait to watch it!)

Adam is also in the midst of creating a course focused on “Raising Money Savvy Kids.” He believes that as parents and elders, it is our job to mold their minds at a young age on how they can win this money war and eliminate future debt. The perfect podcast to light the money flame underneath you and the most easy-to-use tips, to becoming debt free!

103: BECOME Who YOU WANT To Be  

No matter who you are or what you have to share with the world, we all question ourselves, it’s human nature. But when we can (and we can) get passed those “insecurities” and doubt, that’s when the magic happens! It is all about showing up, putting yourself out there and the willingness to at least try.

“Our soul is only here to create experiences for itself, so it can become what it was destined to be.”

Act as if and you will become.

“Live less out of habit and more out of intent.”

Tara supports the Alliance for a Healthier Generation, President Clinton’s initiative to combat childhood obesity, bringing Strala classes to more than 30,000 participating schools. Growing up in a small town in Iowa, Tara comes from a background filled with meditation and dance. A simple and fulfilling childhood.

“You could even say my parents were straight-edge hippies.”

Having a ballet instructor who was ahead of the curve, a mixture of yoga and meditation had been brought into her classic learning from early on.

“I didn't ever think it would become my career though, I always thought I would go study Business or Science.”

In the late 90’s Tara had moved to New York and naturally began to share her gift of yoga, meditation and personal peace. Not even realizing that her simple practices could one day teach and serve.

“It’s truly about you feeling better, its not about being “good” at yoga or meditation.”

Due in just a few short weeks with her first child, this new mommy-to-be shares with us that the biggest lesson her nugget has already taught her (and she's not even born yet) is to slow down…simply put.

“You have to learn the difference between being productive and just being busy. It is possible to do more with less energy.”

101 How To Make Friends With Your FEAR  

"Nothing is good or bad, it just is.”

After pulling my back (trying to move a couch to film my monthly workouts,) which not only effects my career as a fitness professional but also tampers with my everyday happiness, it has taken me the last few days to find my message in this “mess.” I wanted so badly to stay angry for being immobile all weekend but instead, I did a whole lot of praying and took this all as the message to slow the heck down!

“In order to fully grow, to fully evolve and to fully understand our journey, we must welcome it all.”

We must quit being so fearful and just allow things to be. Take the time today to feel how you WANT to feel, say what you WANT to say, and do what you WANT to do. Quit letting O.P.O’s (Other People Opinions) block you. So, how do you get from the beginning to the end, you ask? You go THROUGH…it all. Don’t make fear & pain your home.

99: How to KNOW IF YOU ARE ON THE RIGHT PATH  

“When you want something, all of the universe conspires for you to get it.” -The Alchemist

Have you ever noticed that the thing you are focusing on the most ends up being given to you the most? Whether it is a conscious thought or an unconscious though, good or bad, where you place your focus will always end up in your lap.

So, what does it feel like to be “on your path,” you ask? It feels easy. Plain and simple. Being on the detour or the path you THINK you should be on, but isn't quite the one, will give you the most problems. It’s when you feel like you're giving too much of yourself and not seeing the results in return.

“You’ll feel like it’s costing you your power, like you're losing yourself.”

The most magic happens when you begin to everything through love, with love. It’s not a perfect world, it is most definitely about give and take, but the only time things should be given is when it simultaneously makes YOUR soul happy too.

“It is all about asking yourself... 'How am I going to feel with this next choice that I make?'”

Look down at your feet (yes you, now) see that path? That’s the exact path you should be on.
