Message from a notebook

CAM01076

So this is a short(er than usual) and sweet message from my personal notebook..consider it from my heart to yours. ❤

And to be honest, it was something I wrote up in an attempt to get some good content on one of my sales pages on my website.

But as I was re-reading it, I decided that I really just wanted to share it with you now. And not try and sell you on anything. (Except for perhaps inspiration and general awesomeness in life.) 😉

I just want to help those out there who have lost the spark. Lost that drive, the momentum, that force that sets your soul on fire.

So, without further ado…here it is:

My message. Going out to everyone. (Especially me.)


Who is bold enough to not only want, but is actually willing to change their life?

Let’s do this people.

No more crying and doing nothing about it. No more wishing and hoping some magic pill will finally work this time.

What it takes is doing the work.

There are no shortcuts to lasting success.

What it takes is doing the right things. Making good decisions.

What it takes is persistence.

Keeping our eyes on the goal. Knowing what our goal even is!!

And knowing (truly believing) that even when it’s hard, even when we feel like giving up–that we won’t because we will eventually make it!

Whatever we want will come to fruition eventually, because we’ll do what it takes to get it.

We’ll not settle for less. Never accepting “no” for an answer.

Our dreams will come true.

But we must first believe. (We must!)

If anyone else can do something, so can we. Period. They’re only human too.

(Even if they’d like to believe differently and want you to think they’re something special..)

SO.

Nobody’s coming to save you. Nobody is going to do it for you. There will be guides, there will be inspiration and gifts from the universe along the way, but ultimately it comes down to this:

* What do you want?
* What plan will you create?
* And how will you take the action (that is necessary) to really make it happen?

No hoping here.

Just trying different things until it works. No baby ever started walking after falling a couple times. (Right? They kept trying and trying and falling and finally worked up the muscles to do it!)

So my message here, (to myself mostly), is to keep trying. And persist, damnit!

Start believing in yourself, then others will too.


I love you all! Thank you for reading. I hope this message inspires you to GREATNESS! 😀

With all the love and joy and passion a heart can hold,

Continuing on from my last post..

“I kept rationalizing in my mind that it was “okay” that I kept walking. That I didn’t need to pick up that ONE TINY LITTLE bag out of the bushes anyway….

So.

I turn around.

Walking at a quick pace now…”


I say to myself:

“No, Brittany. Face your fear head on. Do NOT give in to fear! Conquer it NOW. You’re going to go. Crawl. Pick up trash. Crawl back out. Victoriously. And you’re going to be JUST FINE.”

And that’s just what I did.

I crawled through that moist, wet grass.

And brush.

I ducked my head under limbs.

The limbs coming from bushes reaching out for the sun’s precious rays of light.

And you wouldn’t guess what.

Not only one piece of trash, but two.

And you know what else?

No spiders. No bites. No snakes. No predators.

Just me and nature.

And what a beautiful thing.

“Thank you nature for being my friend today,” I say out loud — as I get back out on the trail that leads home.

I then leapt the highest leap and shouted high above the trees..“WHOO HOO!!!!”

Jumped into the air. Breathed the deepest breath.

I felt amazing.

Because I did it.

I faced my fear.

I conquered my MIND. And what a powerful thing.

Fear IS only an emotion, you know.

I forget too sometimes, and that’s okay.

Fear is only a feeling. A bunch of electric impulses going off in the brain. Signaling to each other.

It’s not REAL. Not tangible.

Unless we believe it is. Unless we believe our thoughts.

A well-trained mind conquers.

I still have a lonnnnnnng way to go, but I’m on my way to conquering my own thoughts on a daily basis.

It’s a process. And I’ll have to give it time.

But it’s the tiny, every day steps that will lead me there.

That will lead my to VICTORY.


So. To you, the reader:

–> What chatty electric impulses are holding YOU back from living an extraordinary life?


Please feel free to comment below with any thoughts that come up for you. I respond to EVERY one.

I can’t wait to hear from you 🙂

Live a life of adventure. OF challenge. Gratitude & love. Tell people how you really feel about them.

Live with integrity. Live with PASSION!

I love you.

With all the strength, joy, and passion a heart can hold,
❤ Brittany

If you want real change-to be healthy, fit, & vibrant- you’ve got to want it bad enough that you’ll do ANYTHING for it!

If you really want vibrant health, you gotta start quitting. (Quitting’s not all bad, you know!) We’re taught all our lives that quitting is a terrible thing. Well, I’m here to tell you..it’s not. I’m here telling you to do the exact opposite. 🙂

Here’s what I mean ==>

If you want to feel amazing, if you want to feel alive, here’s what you’ll do:

You’ll quit your favorite sodas. You’ll quit your french fries and ice cream. You’ll quit your fried meats. You’ll quit your negative self-talk. You’ll quit your emotional eating patterns. You’ll quit lying to yourself that you’ll get healthy “later.” You’ll quit telling yourself “I can’t.”

Because you can! Being healthy is an everyday choice, stemming from actions you take every moment. Create your reality. Make your dreams come true. Start making healthier decisions, and you’ll be on your way to lasting SUCCESS!

But it all starts by quitting. 😉

Peace & Love & Freedom in food,
❤ Brittany

UPDATE 2015-08-31: Oh! And one other thing…REPLACE what you quit with something positive! That is the 2nd most important part.

So, If you quit sugary foods, when you want that sugary food, replace it with water. Or an affirmation like “This craving will NOT beat me! I am strong. I can do this!”

Drink a hot tea. Go for a walk. Do 5 pushups every time you get the craving for something you’ve vowed to quit.

Whatever works for you, just DO IT! No more excuses, you got this. 🙂
