Discomfort in Business (My Burpee Story, VIDEO).

Working out always teaches me or reminds me of the lessons I already have learned.

Like this one: You always start before you’re ready.

If you’re in a place or a season in business that has you doubting if you’re ready to continue, go BIG or experience more blood, sweat, and tears, I trust this video will help you feel like a) you’re not alone AND b) hopefully support your forward movement toward the dream…

Watch it HERE.

You got this. Move from problem to solution in order to express the world who you really are.

Enjoy your business, enjoy your life, Creative Heroine.

How I Found My Purpose (you won’t be confused on yours anymore!)

My Mom and I, my Creative Heroine…

There will only be one day in my entire life when I can say that by morning I was living in Guatemala City, set on a path for one life (with all the joys and challenges it might bring) and by that afternoon living in the States (with all the joys and challenges it might bring).

I wouldn’t find out we were staying until later…

Change has been and will be the only constant, but not because it is thrust upon you, but because you choose and keep choosing to change, consciously asking for it to keep finding you, please keep finding me, because you know — you’ve been shown, time and time again — that it’s both training and immediate growth all in one, the duo that will continue introducing you to what’s great, what’s next and what’s most on purpose.

It’s a beautiful thing to own your story.

You can either do exactly that ~ own it, as in, YOU “run” IT, you’re in charge of it or you let it run you, allowing it to be the excuse why you’re stressed, why it’s hard, why you’re not creating the meaningful life you know you were meant for and/or why you don’t feel loved…

Your story can be that — a story you tell others from a place of yes, that’s where I came from, all sorts of awesome…I came from trial and tests so that I would always know how to be reborn, reinvent, find joy and help others do the same.

Your divine purpose and final chapter in your story here is not to come from trial and testing and forever more sing the tune of I am still IN trial and testing. No. You’re given experiences and opportunities in life so the rest of it, once you become aware, can be exactly the opposite.

See that. See that?

Insert what you’ve gone through, witnessed or told the story of HERE and stop for a moment to reflect on what, then, this means that you’re called to now DO after having already seen the ashes.

It’s you rising from here, from there and from those stories…

RISING.

You were given these experiences so you could spend the rest of your life showing others what it’s like to live and be the spokesperson for the opposite.

If you’re confused as to what your purpose is, this is it.

Enjoy your business, enjoy your life!

Life is good,

Diary 8, People Pleasing (Landed in the US of A and here’s what I have to say!)

Success and legacy (the feelings of) comes from keeping our word, to ourselves.

It’s a theme today in the live streams and blog I’ve created today, so it obviously needs to be shared here, too.

We say we want something — we commit to an idea or a path and then just as soon as we have, someone asks something of us and poof, just like that, we’ve sold out and made someone else’s ask, want, favor or task more important than the commitment we’ve made to stay on course for ourselves and the legacy we want to leave behind.

Borrow the commitment you feel in that area in your life where things are healthy, consistent and growing — pour it into those other areas where your consistency to commit, day in and day out, is struggling.

The following is a note my longtime client, Tanya B. posted yesterday inside one of my private Facebook groups and is a GENIUS example of what happens when we follow-through on the commitments we’ve made to ourselves to build something meaningful in our lives and impact as many people as we can with that work.

Others are important and yes, they need you. But you need you. In fact, you showing up for yourself is how you find the ecstatic energy and space necessary to give to everyone around you.

In simpler words, people pleasing doesn’t grow movements. Your commitment to that movement does…

“Today I got the opportunity to be a guest on a TV show. Drawing on the strength of my new purpose statement, I said a big YES! I had a clearly defined message that needed to come forth. Once I started speaking about health and wellness and women’s health, everything fell away. I stepped into my Wellness Warrior shoes and put on my WW cape and gave. I shared from my heart and it felt so good. Thank you, Michelle, for helping me get back in touch with my message. Can’t wait to see what magic lies ahead.”

Your message, messaging and brand will always be important, but you have nothing without a staunch commitment to self!

Enjoy your business, enjoy your life!

Life is good,

Diary #7, Wine with Purpose in Israel

Saturday, we visited a winery an hour-and-a-half from Tel Aviv.

We chose it of all the wineries researched for a couple of reasons. Tulip (ode to Nolan’s birthplace, Holland) was founded 14 years ago with the intention of creating something with social value…

They did that by bringing in people with special needs to work all aspects of the winery. Today there are 240 who live on campus and as Elan put it, “the winery would collapse without them.” They’re an integral part of everything we experienced yesterday.

The winery is also part of an area/town whose name means village of hope.

These Ghilotti and Mandel eyes, all six of them, see the world as one big village of it, of hope. That’s what has come from this trip even more…hope.

Speaking of — oh, Israel. Every part of you we’ve experienced and *will* still experience is loving, magical and open-hearted.

Enjoy your business, enjoy your life!

Life is good,
