Here’s my absolute best piece of advice!

Here’s my absolute best piece of advice.
The most profound insight I have for YOU.
Possibly the most significant self-motivating tip you will hear.

You don’t need me or anybody else.
YOU – Already – Got – This!

You already have the inner-strength!
The wisdom!
The capability!

It’s ok to be knocked down by your doubt and fear and stress. COVID-19 is bringing a hail-storm of these feelings.

We all have voices of limiting self-beliefs.
It’s to be expected.
It’s okay.

And yet, we all rise…sooner or later…to face those fears.
Stare them down.
Confront them.

When we realize they are weak and mean little lies…we SHRED them!

Don’t be afraid my friend.
You are stronger than you think.
Wiser than you know.
And always surrounded by people like me, who you’ve maybe never met, but care and love you.

Relentlessly move forward…believe in you and then reach out to those around you…and believe in them.

I’m counting on you.
I don’t want to hear about one more suicide.
You are not alone.

We got this!

Please send this message to those you feel could benefit from hearing from you. A friendly note can be a prevention of depression and suicide. Thank you for caring about being the best YOU and caring about helping others.

What If Monster

When my kids were young, we talked about the WHAT IF Monster. This monster is invisible…like most monsters are…and yet at times, it’s all we can see and hear. 

This monster tells you all the ways you will absolutely fail and aren’t good enough. It encourages you to quit before you even try. To be defeated when the first handful of attempts fall flat.It is fluent in the language of shame, blame and judgment. 

It is a powerful mountain avalanche that immediately smothers you with fear, doubt and unworthiness. 

It artfully distorts the vision of yourselves and the world. Not wanting to feel or appear weak, we self-isolate. We become blind and deaf to our talents, optimism and self-reliance. Not having support of others (heightened with physical distancing during COVID-19), it is easy to slide down the Adverse Spiral. 

So what to do?! Take 2 brave steps forward! 

1st = Learn to silence the WHAT IF Monster by recognizing the physical and emotional warning signs. 

2nd = Learn to stop the monster by building a powerful internal WHY NOT Mentor!

Like great leaders, mentors see us for who we are, help build our strengths, face our fears, deepen our confidence and encourage us to overcome challenges. 

An internal mentor helps us to become our own hero. And thanks to Captain America and Wonder Woman, we know heroes always win over monsters!
