Cleaning up, running back in the house to get something, picking up something you know you'll need later, switching the laundry as soon as it's ready (thanks @houseofleenyc ) ... it's all been worth the extra tiny bit of time.
People are not as judgmental as you think. People actually want to hear your voice or feel your influence. You never know who needs to hear/read/see what you have to say at any given moment.
You are not your debt. You are not your business failures. You are not your extra 10 pounds. You are you. And you are great.
It is not a sign of weakness to ask for help. If help is offered and you need it, TAKE IT! People don't just offer help to be nice -- they genuinely want to be there for you. Let them.
The ONLY reason I kept getting back on the wagon with Intermittent Fasting is because I had the accountability of @hatetoweight. I was also able to finish my book not just because of my deadline, but because I was a part of a mastermind.
Track your days, see what "a few minutes here and there won't hurt" actually amounts to. Remove the temptation for those things or use them as a reward. (Looking at you, Netflix!)
There is no shortcut to success. There are a lot of tiny steps, but every one of those tiny steps brings you closer to your goals. (See also No. 4.)
It's so good for you, but I do this more out of fear, actually. If I don't get enough, I'll wake up the next day feeling sluggish, moody, and generally "blah." Also, I still sometimes don't know the difference between hunger and dehydration.
I read this message when I was researching tools for empaths and I loved it. It won't make anyone less upset if I'm also upset with them. It's ok to lend a crying shoulder or listening ear without shouldering the burden.
I heard this when learning about finding clients, but I also like using it for myself when trying to manage my time and energy. I would love jump on every opportunity I can, but life sometimes gets in the way and it's OK to say no.
Landon Porter from The Sales Gorilla Podcast told me this during a coaching session and those words knocked the wind out of me. Impostor Syndrome SUCKS. But it's all part of the process. (See also No. 3)
I don't have enough characters to describe how important this has been to me. Especially when responding to criticism. But, trust me, it's amazing. (More info: boredpanda.com/stop-saying-so…)
Gotta give a shoutout to @msrachelhollis for this one from her book "Girl, Wash Your Face." This passage is highlighted so hard, the ink bled through about five more pages.
When I saw something on social media, sometimes I would just keep scrolling. Why? Because I was *afraid* of showing appreciation for it. (No, that doesn't make any sense to me either.) I love my friends. I love what they do. I want them to know!
If any of these has helped at least one person the way they've helped me, that will be the cherry on top of this fantastic year. Thank you to everyone who has supported me, the podcast & the book. ❤️ #HappyNewYear2019
