But he said to me, "My grace is sufficient for you, for my power is made perfect in weakness." Therefore I will boast all the more gladly of my weaknesses, so that the power of Christ may rest upon me. For the sake of Christ, then, I am content with weaknesses, insults, hardships, persecutions, and calamities. For when I am weak, then I am strong.
2 Corinthians 12:9-10 ESV
#lawyered#DreamComeTrue#God 's grace is sufficient
#For the race is not given to the swift or to the strong But to the one who endures to the end
#So Help me God
While there is life, there is hope.
While there is life, there is dream.
While there is life, there is love.
While there is life, we're loved.
Nothing is impossible, the word itself says 'I'm possible. So not possible in this life.

הכמות אנשים שהכרתי בחודשיים האחרונים פשוט מטורפת! לא מאמינה שאני כאן רק חודשיים וכבר מוקפת בכל כך הרבה טוב סביבי.
יש ימים שאני עדיין לא קולטת , שאני חייה באוסטרליה , בדירה עם שותפים ברזילאים , עובדת בבית קפה ישראלי בבוקר ומאמנת התעמלות קרקע אחרי צהריים ובין לבין מטיילת
מי היה מאמין ?! כל מי שמכיר אותי תמיד אמר לי שאני בן אדם של מעשים ולא רק של מילים וזה בהחלט נכון
תיראו איפה אני ! איזה כיף זה להוציא לפועל את החלומות שלכם .
דש מאוסטרליה 😁😁
The amount of people I've met in the last two months is just crazy! I Can't believe I've been here for only two months and i'm already surrounded by so much good around me.
I still don't realize that I live in Australia, in an apartment with Brazilian flatmates, in the morning working in an Israeli café and an afternoon gymnastics couch.
who would believe ?!
Everyone who knows me has always told me that I am a person of acth , not just words, and it is 100% true !
Look where I am! How fun it is to Make your dream come true?! ✌️Australia .
✝️ Year 2001 Going in to my freshman year, I learned that I was pregnant. With my first ever boyfriend in my life. The first boy I ever loved, ever kissed, ever been with. Was I scared? I was TERRIFIED & had no idea how I would do it, I just knew that I was meant to be a mommy 👶🏼
💜 2018 💜 After so many years of lessons, growth & learning ... many years spent alone, as a single mother raising my precious son,through many trials & tribulations
. After so many prayers PRAYED, yearning for the man that God had intended for me , to love me the way I always dreamed, the way that God had planned… After many years desiring to one day be blessed to grow a child & have a family with the love of my life
The time is here, it has finally come ♥️ Every single day of this journey the last 8.5 months have been more than surreal for me. I have tears of joy every day, I drop to my knees in thankfulness to the good Lord up above
. All of the prayers that I RELENTLESSLY prayed, that I believed wholeheartedly with everything in me, even after years would pass & they had not been answered, I KNEW, that eventually one day, at the perfect time, that they would come to fruition in my life God says the time is NOW!!!! 🙌🏼👶🏼🤰🏽😊😊😊🙌🏼😭😭😭😭😭🙏🏼🙏🏼
Být live v televizi . Koho to byl a je sen ?? Mela jsem to na nástěnce vizí, pak jsem na to zapomněla a najednou bum a splněno . Někdy se nám v životě děje to- ze si splníme sny a najednou nemáme další a přestane nás cokoliv bavit , nemáme z ničeho radost . Jsme bez energie a říkáme , ze máme všechno splněno ✅ je čas nastavit nove cíle a jít opět tou cestou vzrušení a snění 😍 #dreamcometrue#tv#livetv
Last weekend I got to spend 3.5 days at Newks Tennis Ranch with my TCD team! 🎾😍🏆 We booked it a year ago and I’ve been looking forward to it just that long! I loved watching Aussie John Newcombe play in the 70s as one of tennis’ all-time greats! He bought this New Braunfels, Texas ranch in 1968 (celebrating 50 years this year!) and it’s his home away from Australia 🇦🇺. 13.5 hours of tennis over 3 days was a dream come true with world-class pros!!!! Was thankful for the covered courts for the cold wet weather too 🙌😨😖! Thanks, ladies, for a terrific time of tennis, fun, fellowship and more tennis. Till next time...🎾🎾🎾🎾🎾🎾🎾🎾😍😘 #DontTellMySurgeon#DreamComeTrue#Gratitude#TCD#TexasTennis

How you doing out here in the “real world”... Was it just as expected? ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
With everything that you learned in high school, and college for that matter, I think we can all say that for the most part, it left us feeling unprepared with the responsibilities that come with making it on your own. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
This cannot be more true when it comes to money management and finances. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
The fact is that personal financial educación was not a top priority on our time, and those who lacked “private, Ivy League education” were left to figure it out on their own. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
But learning personal finance as an adult doesn't have to be scary -- in fact, it can be liberating. When you learn how to manage your money, you tend to feel more in control of your life.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
If you are just getting started on your journey as an adult (or even if you are a few years in and need to level-set), here are five things I wish I knew about managing my finances when I first embarked in the real world.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
1. Understand compounding interest ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
2. Know what you have, what you want and set goals ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
3. Set up a 401k or IRA and contribute the max possible ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
4. Don’t ignore your emergency fund ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
5. Consider other investments ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Remember, you don’t have to go through #adulting alone, I’m here to help 😉⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Which way are you steering your boat!?
How long is the financial coaching process? What does it entail?⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
By having a complementary 30 minutes meeting/call, we will be able to identify your strong points and areas of improvements, as well as articulate your life’s goals and priorities to be able to formulate a plan that will get you there. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
For example: More often than not, I have clients who may be overwhelmed with going paycheck to paycheck just to survive their monthly responsibilities. Once we go through the process of restructuring payments, enumerate priorities, and put a timeline to reach the finish line, they feel more secure, stress-free, and emotionally accomplished that they will be able to live their life at its full potential, and enjoy the things they love the most.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
After the 30-minute complementary meeting/call, I will set the scope of the engagement, gather the documents necessary for me to analyze your specific situation, formulate and plan, provide my recommendations, and review or make changes as appropriately. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
We will continue to talk throughout the process to monitor your progress, and I will be as involved as you will like me to be. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Remember, this is a coaching experience, and on-going relation.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀

You want change... but, are you ready to take action? ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
A study done on behavioral psychology explains the Transtheoretical Stages of Change. The model explains that there are 5 stages of readiness a person goes through that affect their decision making to effectively make a change. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
1. Denial (Precontemplation): easy way to explain it is by the saying "Ignorance is a Bliss". Here you have yet to consider change either because of lack of awareness or failure to see a need for change. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
2. Ambivalence (Contemplation): "Mmm... well, mayyyybe". You are in between reasons to change or stay the same
3. Preparation: "I am ready - what do I need to do?". You recognize something must be done, but may not know what or how to do it. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
4. Action: "I'm doing it, Let's go!". You learn what to do differently, and acts to bring about change. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
5. Maintenance: "I'm sticking with it". You now work to keep a solid ground on the new behaviors until your new pattern is your status quo. .
The financial process works similarly, the main difference is that you do not have to go through these alone. As your financial fitness coach, you get the knowledge, strategy, implementation, and support needed to successfully make a change! 😉
Is there a behavior that you would like to change right now? which stage are you on? ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
"Someone is sitting in the shade today because someone planted a tree a long time ago" - Warren Buffet⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
When it comes to retirement, the same philosophy applies. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Starting to save early gives your portfolio the chance to grow through the years to create the maximum benefit. Here are some tips to keep in mind: ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
- Join the retirement plan at work ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
- Limit debt ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
- Rollover retirement plan savings ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
- Save at least half of any bonus you receive (you were fine before the bonus, carry it forward) ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀

P.S: If you’re a business owner, and don’t like to pay taxes, there’s an option that you may benefit from! 🤫 let’s talk
Let go of your fears! ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
To become the greatest version of yourself, you must let go of your fear of failure and embrace your ability to take action. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
So what if you fail? You will have learned and grown from the experience. You have to push yourself to break the mold. It’s the empowered you that takes a chance, tries out for the team, or applies for the job. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Taking that leap can mean the world. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Who is the empowered you? It’s the you who, just for a moment, puts all your energy into being the greatest you to accomplish that goal. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
We can stop the worries, fears, and doubts from pulling us apart. You just have to let go, and take the ride.
Invest in yourself first. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Do you ever feel as if people around you are advancing in their lives, and yours seems stagnant? ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
If so, what are you doing about it?⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Successful people are constantly reading, educating themselves, making changes on their habits, and have a constant drive to become better everyday. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ It's all about mindset, the discipline and being consistent when putting your best foot forward. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
So instead of going out every weekend, staying home binge-watching a series, or playing more than 8 hours on a video game, consider picking up a class on your favorite subject, do research on a world topic, and expand your intellect. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Learn while they party, and you will be soon ahead of them in life.
