Quality

The qualities we want from others are often the qualities we need to bring out in ourselves. If we want respect, we need to respect ourselves. If we want love, we need to love ourselves. If we want understanding, we need to understand ourselves. You get the idea.
Take a moment to think about the qualities you want from others. What do you need to bring out in yourself in order to attract those qualities?
What are you going to start working on today, so you can watch your relationships transform.

The Most Incredible Bridal Show

Twenty-nine years ago, I moved to Regina to open my own tuxedo rental store. A week later, I became a speaker! When I called the local bridal shows to buy a booth in the show and put my tuxedos in the fashion show, I was turned down! I was told my competitor had the fashion show spot taken. This was not good! I needed people to see what I had to offer. As you will read in my new book, I am a very resilient person and I was super resilient at 24 years old. So I started my own show.
Well, 29 years later, we made the difficult decision to sell the show. It was our baby and a business our children grew up working in, but it is time for someone new and exciting to take this show over. Meet Angela from Imagine Events! I am very proud to say that Angela is the new owner.
I wish you all the best, Angela, in putting on the best day ever!

Nobody’s Perfect

It’s Mother’s Day, and I just wanted to take a moment to tell all the moms out there that you are doing an amazing job. You are the backbone of our families and communities, and we are so grateful for everything you do. Keep up the good work! ❤️

Redefine Your Future

“The power of the past is that we come with so much baggage. The power of the present is that we can redefine our future.”
– Erykah Badu
The quote above embodies everything I believe in and also serves as a reminder to myself every single day!
Every time I wake up, I face my fears and get ready to take over the world.
We all have the power to create a new tomorrow and to live our best lives.

Work on Your 10%s First

Work on your 10%s first, see through a clear lens, find out what you have to clean off. Where could you be a year after you’ve found the courage to start looking through a clear lens? Where could you be a year after starting to meditate every morning? Where could you be a year after you’ve started working on your 10%s?
The first thing you need to do to double-dip into the pool of clarity is to know what the heck you want. You’ll never improve anything by sitting around and wishing for clarity. Once you know what you want, you can take steps forward and silence those voices in your head that tell you why you can’t.

Change

How can we create a life to do the things that are best for us, what are we willing to give up? I’ve been thinking a lot lately about how many times in our lives we have come to a point where we have had to make a choice that would either change the rest of our lives, or keep it the same. We often dream about what we want, but we don’t do anything about it until we think about it.  But today is the day to lay that sucker out and decide to make the change. What are you going to change today?
“Life is 10% what happens to us and 90% how we react to it” – Charles R. Swindoll

 

You Are Amazing

Just because you want to become a better version of yourself does not mean you aren’t amazing already. Motivation alone does not change anyone’s life. It is a promise of a better tomorrow and an acknowledgement that there is always room for improvement. The truth is, you don’t have to wait for your next big life change in order to become a better version of yourself. You can become a better version of yourself by just changing one thing about your routine: your mindset.
I am a fan of celebrating the awesomeness of others because that awesomeness is also available to me.
What makes you amazing?

What a Great Conference!

In Brandon Manitoba today. I am blessed to be at the Manitoba municipal administrators conference. It’s been an interesting journey. I tried to come here yesterday and the highway was closed so I went back home and woke up this morning at 4 o’clock to be here!! The 90%s are I am safe, and here I am at a live event again – amen! And one of the nicest clients of all time.

 

Always Believe in Yourself

“A bird sitting on a tree is never afraid of the branch breaking, because her trust is not on the branch but on its own wings. Always believe in yourself” – Unknown
This post is for anyone who is reading this and needs to know: I believe in you and now it is time for you to believe in you too!
We are often our own worst enemies, preventing us from moving forward in the moments we need to the most. What stops us from believing in ourselves?
We can take the steps today that you need to heal, remembering to only do one step at a time. Try to conquer your fears through positive affirmations and visualizations. If you are able to visualize yourself being successful, then you are more likely to strive for it. Write down your goals, including the steps that you need to take each day to achieve them and keep them where you can see them. By actively working patiently towards a goal, people tend to see the goal as more attainable because they know they are moving forward towards the end result.
What is the first step you are going to do today to believe in yourself tomorrow?

Earth Day

This is how I find peace and calm at home with other people around me. I put headphones on and I play this playlist. Try it! It will force you to sit for a minute and breathe.
