You are NOT alone!
There is so much information out there that it seems impossible at times to know where to start. There is so much BAD information out there that instead of helping ourselves, we often times are hurting our chances for success.
We have been conditioned to think that in order to be healthy we have to eat things our families would never eat!
I discovered a system that forever changed the way I look at and approach food. I learned the value of eating a balance of whole foods in proper portions. I discovered that food doesn't have to be boring or complicated to properly fuel my body to get the results I wanted.
I figured out that I don't have to cut out food groups or my favorite foods and can still lose the weight and keep it off and I want to share all about it with you!

If you want to have more, you have to become more. Success is not something you pursue. What you pursue will elude you; it can be like trying to chase butterflies. Success is something you attract by the person you become." -Jim Rohn
Do you feel like you are missing out in life and falling short in various areas? Do you want more but can't figure out why you aren't getting it? The truth is, we must grow into the person that is ready to receive more!
There are so many ways to grow, but we must make a conscious effort to do it. I started taking personal development seriously a few years ago and it has transformed me in ways I could have never imagined. I was NEVER a reader growing up, but now I can't get enough! I am continually listening to one and reading another.
It can be crazy overwhelming deciding where to get started! The truth is, just start somewhere, pick a darn book and dive in.
If you are reading or listening and it's not jiving with you, stop. There is no shame in that! We are too busy to reading things that don't resonate with us or meet us where we are.
My best advice to choosing a book is to figure out what area you are wanting to work on in that moment. It is amazing how awesome google can be, but I guarantee if you throw the question out on social media, you will have friends and family that will make amazing recommendations.
I thought I would share with you my top 10 personal development books I think everyone should read. I do have some other favorites, but they are niche specific. These are the big ones for EVERYONE.
Real growth and change doesn't happen just by reading or listening to these books, although, that is a start! The real change happens by internalized what is being consumed and then applying what is learned! Real growth will happen in the ACTIONS taken!
I would love to hear what books you would add to the list! Please share your comments with me, I am always on the hunt for my next great read.
The way you look at your life is what will ultimately make you happy or unhappy. When you become consumed by negative beliefs or assumptions, you will find that you are unhappy with your life. Eventually, your perception will become your reality, so changing your mindset can make a huge difference in your life. A negative mindset tends to cloud your judgment, making it hard to tell if the negative thoughts you are experiencing are outside yourself or inside your psyche. Here are four signs that it's time to change your mindset and improve your life.
You Constantly Focus on Everything That’s Wrong
If you are always fixating your attention on the disappointments and worries in your life, this is a sure indication that your mindset is tainted with negativity. To begin to change this mindset, take some time to think about those things in your life that you are thankful for because it will help keep the negative thoughts from completely overwhelming your perspective.
You Won’t Face the Truth
Complaining about reality won't change it. Relentlessly complaining, is ultimately your refusal to acknowledge and accept the truth. There are things in your life that you just can't change, and refusing to see the world as it is, results in you no longer being able to tell fact from fiction. Take action and change those things that you can and accept those that you can’t.
You Become Angry When Your Expectations Aren’t Met
Your expectations are a large part of your mindset. They are what you believe to be necessary and possible. If you are always angry that the people in your life, or when even you yourself, are not meeting expectations, it means that your expectations were unrealistic, to begin with. Our expectations are what lay the groundwork for our experiences, and if we have unrealistic expectations, we will never be satisfied with our life.
You See Yourself as a Victim
Continually seeing yourself as a victim, hinders your ability to change things and build a better life for yourself. This victim mentality is generally a by-product of low self-esteem. The only way to change this mindset is by deciding to reject the victim role and start creating something better for yourself.
Changing your mindset isn’t easy, but it is one of the most powerful things you can do for yourself. Learn how to recognize a negative mindset and become empowered to make the changes necessary to become more positive about your life.
If you want to find any success in your life, you need to set goals. Without having goals for yourself, you will lack focus and direction in your life. Not only do goals allow you to take control of your life, but they also provide you with the benchmarks for determining your success. Setting a goal is the process that begins with your careful consideration of what you want to achieve and ends with you putting in the hard work to achieve it. Here are five secrets of goal setting that will set you up for success.
Set Goals that Motivate You
If you have limited interest in the outcome of your goals, or they are irrelevant to the bigger picture, your motivation to work on achieving them will be low. Set goals related to the high priorities in your life. It requires a commitment to achieve your goals, so to ensure you achieve success, you need to set specific goals that motivate you.
Set SMART Goals
For your goals to be powerful, they need to be SMART. To increase your chances of success, your goals need to be:
Write Down Your Goals
When you physically write down your goal, it becomes real and tangible. It eliminates any chance that you will forget about it. Be sure to frame your goal statement positively to help increase the rate of retention. Post your goals someplace where you will see them every day as a constant reminder of what you want to achieve.
Make an Action Plan
Often, we get so focused on the outcome of our goals, that we forget to create a plan of action for accomplishing them. Take the time to write down the individual steps that you will need to take to achieve your goals. As you complete each level, cross it off so you can visually see the progress that you are making.
Stick with It
Goal setting is an ongoing activity, not merely a means to an end. Keep yourself on track by creating reminders, and schedule regular blocks of time to sit down and review your goals and progress. You want to make sure that the relevance, necessity, and value remain high as you work toward accomplishing your goals.
Setting goals are more than merely saying you want something to happen. To find success, you need to clearly define exactly what you want and understand why you want it in the first place. Implement these steps in all your goal setting endeavors and watch as you accomplish each one.
