It’s Time to Take Care of YOU!

Published May 11, 2016 by Jasmine

Do you remember what you are told to do in case of emergency while flying? You are told to put YOUR oxygen mask on first because if you don’t first help yourself, you won’t be able to help anyone else. How many of you are putting YOUR oxygen mask on first in your own life? I would be willing to bet that the answer is not many. WHY is this?

There is no doubt that we all want to be more, have more, and do more…but we don’t. We can come up with many excuses why we don’t such as we don’t have time, the resources, the finances, or the support. However, I think the real reason is because we are afraid to fail…afraid that we won’t be good enough, that we won’t measure up. My question to you is good enough for who? Who or what are you trying to measure up to? The ONLY person you should be worried about comparing yourself to, being good enough for, or measuring up to is the person you were yesterday.

We are all scared of failure, some of us just hide it better than others. But let me tell you this, the person who takes action but doesn’t finish will always be a step ahead of the person who never started. Just as we are all scared of failure, none of us is perfect. Your goal is progress, not perfection.

We all make time for things and people who are important to us. If you are not taking time to care for you, what are you telling yourself and your loved ones? You guessed it…you are subconsciously telling yourself and your loved ones that you aren’t important. I would beg to differ.

Taking care of YOU is something that you need to schedule into your life like anything else. If you have time in your schedule for your nails, your hair, happy hour, golf with your buddies, then you have time to devote to taking care of you…you just aren’t making it a priority.

All you have to do is START! I don’t care if it is 5 minutes, 5 blocks, or 5 reps. Believe me when I tell you that once you have started, the hardest part is over! You are already half-way there, and momentum  will carry you the rest of the way.

What are you going to do to make yourself a priority, and take care of YOU? What can YOU commit to for the next 30 days to put you on the path to becoming the best version of YOU?!?

Truth Tuesday

Published March 15, 2016 by Jasmine

For the past few years many of you know I have been soul searching trying to figure out my purpose.I knew my passion was personal development, and inspiring and motivating others. What I didn’t know was what purpose those passions would serve.

The coaching opportunity had been presented to me numerous times over the last four years, but I never looked into it because I was so focused on what I thought I was supposed to be doing…using my law degree.

If even one time I had taken a few minutes to let someone explain the opportunity, and why they thought it was a good fit for me I would be in a very different place right now. In fact, I would currently be on a cruise in Jamaica!  But I didn’t do that. I ruled it out without knowing anything about it.

Thankfully, I took the time this past January to learn a little more, and immediately said YES! Wouldn’t you know if two of the things that make me happ, and that I was already doing just happened to be two of the three vital behaviors of a coach!

My goal is to build a life that I don’t need a vacation from. To become so financially secure that I forget it is payday.

However, my big picture dream is to impact 100,000 lives in my lifetime. To educate, empower, and encourage 100,000 people to go from a life of settling to a life of success, whether that be physically, emotionally, financially, or all three; and finally lead them to a life of significance as they lead others from a life settling to success.

I can’t build this dream by myself. If you want to go from a life of settling, of wondering if this is all there is to a life of success and significance then comment below with “Team Success to Significance” to learn more!
