We all have days where we feel drained, exhausted, unappreciated and angry. We begin to look around, take inventory, and ask ourselves “how the heck did I end up here? Is this IT?” 😳
If you’ve ever asked yourself this question, raise your hand. 🙋🏽 It is in this moment where you have to make a decision. 🤔 Do you decide to settle in where you are and accept that this is IT? Or do you grab tightly to your hope, press forward, believing that better days ahead – even though you’ve been “pressing forward” for 6 . . . 9 . . . 12 months.
It’s worth it.
My words to you are: hold tight to your hopes. Don’t settle. Keep pressing. You can make it. You will make it. The reward is greater than the pain! #painisrealsoishope#painisreal#hopeisreal#youareworthit#dontgiveup#keeppressingon#forwardthinking#thingswillgetbetter
오늘 소개 해드릴 마지막 곡은 김영원씨의 첫 자작곡, ‘Unless It Is My Dream’입니다! 유튜브에 올라온지 벌써 일년이 지났네요!! 다들 유튜브 구독해주세요❤️❤️ 이 노래는 꿈에 대한 노랜데, 꼭 본인의 꿈을 흔들리지 않고 이루시길 바랍니다!
This is not who I will be
I won’t let fear control me
Even if that life is hard
I will never let it be
unless it is my dream
Jangan pernah menyerah
Jangan pernah kehilangan harapan
Kita harus yakin kalo kita BISA
Gagal di langkah pertama, coba lagi
Gagal di langkah kedua, JANGAN PUTUS ASA
Kita tidak pernah tau di langkah ke berapa kita akan SUKSES
Tapi orang yang tidak gampang menyerah pasti akan BERHASIL. 💪💪 #motivation#dontgiveup
I believe in hard work, and I'm probably not alone in saying it can be frustrating to be in a place where you have been hustling for (what feels like) an eternity and not be where you think you should be. We live in an instant gratification, disposable society where our children see people who are famous for being famous, with no discernable talent to speak of...and it all happened overnight, right?
I can only hope to provide some balance and hopefully a model for my children, and to them I will say: few things in life come to you easily. No, you're not going to get your dream job right out of school. You're most likely not going to make 6 figures right off the rip...and sometimes you'll have to scrub toilets. And that's ok because there is no job beneath you...and I promise you there is someone right behind you who will gladly do the work you thought you were "too good" for. When the world is telling you that you "should" have these things instantaneously, you and you alone have the ability and responsibility to decide whether those "things" are actually that important after all. And if they are? That's fine. But have patience. Work hard. Do well AND do good. The universe isn't on the same time schedule that you are. Stop worrying about the things you don't have, and start being grateful for the things you do have...and for the opportunity to wake up another day and do it all over again. Don't ever give up. It could very well be that the day after you decided to hang it all up was the day that everything changed.
Make it an AMAZING day ❤ ❤❤ ❤
Có những lúc ko thể hiểu nổi tại sao bản thân mình lại phải trải qua những công việc khắc nghiệt lâu đến như vậy...? Nhưng rồi dần dần nhận ra...tất cả mọi thứ đều có cái giá của nó. Điều quan trọng là: Đừng bỏ cuộc!
NOPE. But I’m determined to invest a little bit more in myself each day, so I can pour out to others. Whether it’s 5 minutes in the car or 10 minutes before I close my eyes, I’m on this journey of self-appreciation & love and it’s not slowing down! 🙌🏼🤸🏼♀️
If I’m not giving myself the time to be my best, how am I supposed to give it to others?
Just a little Monday motivation…now let’s go after it! 👊🏼
Have a great day my friends! 😊✌🏼💜
I was privileged to be asked to coach a few incredible women for their first ever natural figure competition last weekend. I only had 11 weeks so it was crunch time! They were 100% committed to the process and started prepping in October but wanted to get to the next level with me. I did NOT give them any products that enhance/speed up fat loss/muscle growth that are known to pass the drug tests for the IDFA, I did not kill them with cardio, although they did have to get a lot in, it was never daily hour-2 hour gruelling sessions and they were timed appropriately. They NEVER had days without carbs and there were controlled refeeds even within a few weeks from their competition. For peak week, I had very specific diet, supplement and training guidelines starting 10 days out. Again, even during peak week they had carbs EVERYDAY, the only things I did was manipulate the amounts of carbs, healthy fats and sodium intake. No water loading, no crazy diuretics, only started dandelion root the night before! I never stopped or loaded salt etc. I am so humbled that they trusted me. They were committed and positive, lots of work on posing as well. Everyone needs a coach, I have one and my coach has one etc. Even if you are looking at lifestyle changes (not competing in a show) to get healthier, fitter, lose weight or need guidance, a coach is a one stop shop. Believe me. Again these pics are only taken 11 weeks apart, a 100% natural transformation with one badass lady 38 years old and the other badass lady 57 years old. Transformations have no age limit 😊😊😊#figurecompetitor#dontgiveup#girlswithmuscles#girlswholift#naturalfitness#naturalfigurecompetitors#transformation#trusttheprocess#motivationmonday
Some times in life you need to lose something to start appreciating what you have. Some times you need time to find your self to get back up on a right track. However if you keep hope and you believe that's something is ment to be it will be. Maby not now maby in the future. I'll never give up the hope and I'll fight and I'll come back stronger, better and I will build what was ment to be.
#MorningInspiration 🚨Mini Blog Alert 🚨
Woke up a little extra early with ideas running rampant in my head and I quickly opened my laptop to jot them down. After lying back in bed, all I could think about is how these were such good ideas and how I can’t wait to see them come to life. I’m not a small minded person, so these are some huge ideas 😂🤷🏽♂️lol. Well after doing all this day dreaming and creative thinking, a small voice of doubt came in my head and said “how are you going to do all this? How are you going to make this possible? What makes you think YOU can do this?” I then got a notification on my phone and it was this passage of scripture. Matthew 7:7, AMPLIFIED Version. The most popular version says “Ask.. seek.. knock” but I like this version because it brings you to the reality that things don’t always work out on the first try! You have to ask and keep on asking, seek and keep on seeking, knock and keep on knocking until you get the results you desire! The only thing in this life that is easy to do is to settle, give up, and quit trying. So to that voice of doubt in my head: I’m going to ask and keep on asking, seek and keep on seeking, knock and keep on knocking. That’s how I’m going to do it! That’s how I’m going to prevail! That’s how I’m going to conquer! That’s how I’m going to win! Keep fighting, keep pushing, and keep working hard until your dreams, goals, and aspirations come true!!! 💡💡💡💡#thesoulssource
“I have not failed. I’ve just found 10,000 ways that won’t work.”
Thomas A. Edison
Sometimes, when things have come kinda easy to you, you don’t learn how to work really hard at something. Like, you can work hard at the things you’re good at, but struggle to stay with something that’s difficult for you. But then how will you ever get any better? I’m learning you may have to practice something hundreds, thousands, maybe even millions of times to experience success with it. AND you may experience a lot of failure! But if you can look on it as a learning experience... bring on that failure! It’s a chance to grow! 🌿
There are no secrets to success. It is the result of preparation, hard work, and learning from failure.- colin powell .
i’m out of PT hours for the year and we’re hoping insurance will approve more. ive been spending so much weekday home time fighting and working on what i can, making sure to focus on muscle return and building the teeny muscles i do have. luckily i have a home mat, a standing frame and a functional electrical stimulation bike at the house. i also have a talented hubs who is major to making home therapy work.
it takes a lot of willpower to work as hard as possible when at home, but it’s the option i’ve got right now.
let’s make this monday one that kickstarts the week into high gear, let’s make goals and crush them. slip ups happen, brush off the failure, laugh, learn from it and get right back in the game.
we gotta look in the mirror and tell ourselves “yous a boss, you got this”. then make goals and crush them.
who else needs some monday pump up? we got this. let’s freakin do it.
Feels great to be back at bootcamp 6 weeks of non stop goal setting and a healthy body and mind will be updating daily for the duration of the 6 weeks to show an insight into why I love this so much and how it helps me deal with my anxiety and panic attacks daily
When you think you haven’t got more in you, that’s the point where you tap into the well of so much more potentiality.
Not that it’s evident yet this was taken in the ‘pouring’ rain today after another day of intense training in areas of physicality not so comfortable for me. Yet via pushing/moving/ easing through limitations progress is made.. not only physically yet mentally, which is where the true Gold is at.
Today is also the first time I accessed this so pretty happy! Thanks to my teacher (Loci) @miguel_hand_balance ! 🙏🏽☮️ .
I also had the pleasure of wearing Miguels & Elise’s new clothing line @invertwear and honestly felt so slinky to the skin and in love w. the design! 🖤#hongkongliving 🌴🌧
