I love connecting with people more than anything. If I can inspire you to DREAM BIG- well then I am over the moon excited!
My amazing friend Carla Green says I am a Treasure Hunter. I find the treasure in others and draw it out. Who wouldn't want to find treasure!?
We all have treasures, some just don't know what our "treasures" are. These are really your personal gifts and talents.
I feel a bit like a gold digger... meaning I help YOU mine for gold within yourself. I am fueled by that process. We are all special in many ways that cause us to be uniquely us. Are you aware of what your treasures are? Would you be open to talking about it?
Seriously, it my favorite! I spent an hour today talking with someone in a competitors company to mine. Oh my gosh, we laughed, chatted for an hour and I offered to hop on one of her team calls and encourage her team. Why? Because, I want to serve. She even invited me to come visit her in Rhode Island at her home on the ocean. Oh, trust me, I would do it! Have I ever "really" met her? No. People have a way of letting their hearts show though. I talked to her and saw the treasure, I didn't have to hunt very hard.
I encourage you to take some time and think about what your gifts are. Are you aware of them and using them to serve others? I'd love to set up a connection call to see how I can serve you!
As always, don't forget to Dream Big!
HEY!!! Hello! Yes, it's me!
Just Sherri here.
Guess what? Life happens...crap happens and life rolls on. Great news is, I did NOT get run over by life or my circumstances. I did however get a bit sidetracked with family health issues. I am back on track and excited to reconnect with you and my strange ramblings about what is on my mind. Trust me when I say there has been loads on my mind but some would have been less than inspiring or thought provoking. I spared you.
FIRST THOUGH- Happy Stinking NEW YEAR!!! 2020 is off to an amazing start and why not- you can see clearly now right....cue the tune....
Fact of the matter is, life is always happening. Some good some not so good. Here is what I want to remind you as we enter fully into 2020:
YOU can create your destiny. This will be the first of many reminders that you ARE an unrepeatable MIRACLE and that there is literally no single person like you in the entire WORLD! AMAZING! YOU-- yes YOU are AMAZING exactly the way God made you today! You are enough, you can excel, and live life out loud like a boss. Don't worry...you will hear it again. I am cheering for you...can you HEAR how loud?! YOU got this!
Think about how you can expand your life experiences! While in Colorado visiting our son, we tried lots of new things. It is good for the soul!
We get so bogged down with the mundane in life that we are bored, act boring, and literally lose our joy.
I invite you to create your own adventure in the coming weeks. Try all new restaurants. Don't shop in the same old place. Drive to a local farmers market or shop in a neighboring town. Variety isn't just the spice of life- it is life. Try a new sport or craft. Try water skiing or mountain climbing or paddle boarding or even painting a picture. Take a class for knitting, painting or cooking. You will not only find you're self learning something new- you will likely laugh, and people who are always learning and growing are always more interesting as well! Your relationships will be better for it also.
Be adventurous, be free! Be YOU- but MORE!
Hmmm, this is a slippery slope. In today's society, where we struggle every single day to cope with striving for perfection, the end result is simply...NOTHING!
Now that probably sounds a bit odd but the reality is so many of us are so incredibly scared to make a mistake that we don't do ANYTHING, thinking doing nothing will actually be better than making a decision and making the wrong one. I believe in technical terms its called Analysis Paralysis. One literally becomes unable to make any decision because the fear of making the wrong choice is so stressful, you make no choice. Or you feel it's not "perfect" yet so you can't finish it. GUESS WHAT? THAT is a decision! Yes, No choice is a choice. When you relinquish YOUR choice making however, you give up your right to complain about the outcome. Because, often in your absence of choice making someone has had to make one for you. I am often heard saying #makegoodchoices for a reason. IF we don't make them- SOMEONE will make them for us and we are FORCED to live with it! I personally choose to make my own choices -good and bad. At least I will rightfully own whatever consequences that come from it good and bad. What choices are hard for you that make you want to be a turtle and pull your head in and hide?? Or are you that person who says- WHO CARES!!! I am doing it! Ready aim FIRE! And Boom....Make good choices friends... but MAKE them!
Did you know that Mohammed Ali would do push ups every day. If he was asked how many have you done- he would say I have no idea, I don't start counting until if feels hard. Victory is in the resistance my friends! When it starts to feel hard, the magic transformation is literally right around the corner! This is what separates the 2% from the other 98%! These people in the 2% THRIVE in the challenge, the adversity, the change and the turbulence! It is the fuel for their FIRE! THEY KNOW whats coming their way by pushing through the hard times! Are you going for what you want, or settling for what you have? Tony Robbins says "Are you emotionally fit? We can only be free and successful if we accept adversity as a catalyst for greatness! Decide that you are 100% responsible for everything in your life!" You ARE the BOSS Applesauce! It's YOUR time to SHINE! Get off the couch, MAKE YOUR LIFE mean something BIG! Dream BIG! LIVE BIG! LOVE BIG! You have to SHOW UP... to GO UP! You have to GET BACK UP when you get knocked down! When it gets hard just keep repeating- Victory is mine...Victory is mine! You can't have the RAINBOW with out the rain people. Weather the storm so you can enjoy the rainbow! Where are you headed today and what's the weather like around you? #changeagent #bethechange
Wow! It's all I have got. Do you have any idea how important it is to have alignment? I mean seriously... when your tires are out of alignment they don't wear well, you have substandard performance and your efficiency decreases over all. This is completely true if you do not have the correct tribe around you as well. People who lift you up- won't be checking your grammar or spelling- they will hear your words! They wont care if your hair and makeup are perfect or your socks match... They don't care if you grew up in the projects or in the Hampton's. They will love YOU- for who you show up as. When you live as your authentic self, you will begin to attract all the right people for that tribe. They will instinctively do the heavy lifting for and with you. They will help carry away the stones that others throw- not contribute to the rock pile. BE who you are meant to be- Stand in The Power of ME- and surround yourself with those who can handle your truth! Be the star in your own life, today and everyday! Find your TRIBE! If you don't know who they are- put out what you are looking for! They will find you! Stand in your TRUTH! Get in Alignment- all your wheels, life goals, plans and dream manifest faster and better when you are surrounded by your tribe and live your life in alignment!
I listened to an amazing conference call this evening. One of them gems from Paul Gravette was "You meet people for a reason. They are a blessing... or a lesson." This really struck me. He encouraged us to think about the people around us. Seriously, think about who we are spending our precious limited time on earth with. I couldn't help but think about how I was showing up in the world too. How am I showing up to my friends and family? Am I pouring into them with a grateful heart or draining them by sharing whining tales of woe? It's important to think about your impact on the world around you and also how much you let other people impact you! Gandhi clearly had it right when he said, "Be the change you want to see!" I am here to spread positive energy, love and light so if you think you see something else from me, take a second and hold a mirror up and make sure its not a reflection of yourself you are seeing. Be joy. Spread joy. Be the blessing, not the lesson!
Do you have people who consistently either pronounce your name incorrectly or spell it wrong- always? If you correct them- they say oh yes, sorry... and do it again. OR maybe you are that person who does it to someone else- all the time? I feel like our name is one thing that is uniquely ours- it's important! It's part of our identity! It helps show the world who we are- the spelling and pronunciation is super important. Because it's right and it's respectful. Let us all make an effort to give people the respect they deserve by using their names correctly, AND spelling them correctly! If we do use it incorrectly and are corrected- make sure we don't forget it again! Let's make an effort do this for one another because we care enough to do it!
We spend so much time trying to recover from our own assaults... be looking for the book... the speaking engagements...the interviews, and so much more! YEP! You heard it here! It is getting ready to go live! I am so excited to share this platform with you. I will be helping you to stand in your power and to learn to love on yourself more! I cant wait to unleash all this amazing stuff for you!! Follow along for updates!!! From Grief to Grind Anthology is dropping live this month too!!!! Are you as excited as I am?
Today I sent edits for the From Grief to Grind book coming out next month. I almost didn't do it. Not the edits- but the whole story. Guess what- I chose to do it because it was for me. It was my chance to put a period at the end of that sentence and put an official ending to that story. Why? Because I am FULL of stories that are being written! GET OUT OF YOU OWN WAY!!! The number of times per day I hear about people saying they cant do something is simply- outrageous! You started- you can finish. Will it be perfect? NO. Do you care? NO. Get over it- even Jesus wasn't perfect so what makes you think you can be? If you were, you would literally have zero friends because everyone would hate you because they couldn't be perfect like you! Good Grief- spend some time today finishing anything you started and stopped. Then spend some time loving on yourself!
