Well I think it's safe to say I'm back in the saddle again after an AMAZING weekend! Friday morning we jumped in the car and headed west to the windy city to attend a Dani Johnson seminar. Now, if you read my blog regularly you will know that I've been following Dani's work for about 6 months now. I've read her books, listened to her audio CDs and taken advantage of all the great FREE resources she has to offer on her site, www.danijohnson.com
, please go check it out! This amazing woman has help me in all facets of my life, in my marriage, as a parent, with my finances and even with my fitness business as an Independent Team Beachbody Coach. This was my second time attending one of her live seminars, the first one I attended was back in January in Orlando, FL. From the beginning of the year she's rocked my world, opened me up to recognize my ego I didn't even know I had, made me realize how simple success can be, made me a better parent and a wife, just a better person in general! Well I couldn't keep her a secret all to myself so I sent my dear hubby to LA to see her all on his own to get his own experience and then this time around we went together and brought people with us to Chicago. Some got more out of it than others, but I can honestly say that the ones that did walk away with a renewed sense of vision in life and for people in general went in with an open mind and an open heart. I'm truly blessed to be surrounded with such incredible individuals. It is so very true, the saying that states, "You are the 5 people you choose to surround yourself with." This past weekend I was totally surrounded with hundreds of people who desire more out of life, who just want to be happy and make others happy, who want to rid themselves of negativity, who have a VISION for their life. I'm on a complete high right now and I don't plan on coming back down EVER. This is the power that this seminar, First Steps To Success can have on you, granted that you have enough common sense to check your ego at the door, let down your guard and open your ears and your heart. It seems simple right? You'd be surprised how hard it is for some, and they're the ones that need it most. Isn't that just how life is though right?! Sometimes you have to experience the bad to get to the good. Now I'm not saying everyone needs to plug into Dani, she's not for everyone! But, I will say this, if you aren't in some way consistently investing in yourself to grow personally, mentally, spiritually, then you will stay stuck my friends. Stuck in a rut. Where I found myself a little over a year ago at the end of 2010. I made a promise to myself that I was going to change my situation, I was going to get healthy, be comfortable in my own skin, feel good about myself so I could be a better mother and wife. In a few short months I did that, lost 35lbs and gained a business that I could be proud of and help others who were struggling just like me. Then I was introduced to Dani. I was greatly satisfied with my physical transformation, but my personal and financial situation was still stuck. She showed me the light, I was eager to learn and to grow and I did. It brought me to this point in my life. EXTREMELY happy and content, a VISION for life and what I want out of it, a happy marriage, happy children and a growing business that has done wonders for us financially. I'm blessed friends, so very blessed. I wasn't given all this over night. The Law of Promotion says that, "He who can be trusted with the little things, will be made ruler over much." Read that over and over and over again, let it sink in. It's about the little things. Doing them over and over again consistently. Repetition is the mother of skill. It will lead to mastery and it is then that you will be rewarded with more. It is so very simple friends, don't make it hard. I believe in YOU. Believe in YOURSELF. I'm so very blessed to be able to communicate this with you all, those of you that are reading, you are the ones that I choose to surround myself with. In some way shape or form the words I write have been inspired by you. Have a blessed day, make it a GREAT week :) Love you all!
