ETERNALLY MOTIVATED {Sunday Affirmations + New Year’s Wish}

Hey Rockstar!

Never-never-never-give-up

Who is ready to kick some serious bootie in 2013?  I SURE AM!  Don’t you love the sense of clarity, focus, drive and motivation that comes with the clean slate we’re all given on Jan 1st?  How do YOU keep your level of drive and motivation high all the way through the following Dec?  Do you seem to putter out and give up by the end of Feb?  Several of you have written in lately and asked for my tips on staying MOTIVATED with working out and eating right so I taped a new video with a few suggestions for changing your mindset.  This is the perfect topic as we begin the New Year…..

WATCH THIS:

 

THIS YEAR I WILL….

  1. Believe in myself MORE than ever.

  2. Go make things happen instead of WHINING about it.

  3. Hang motivational AFFIRMATIONS on my mirror + fridge.

  4. Create a vision board + watch my goals/dreams MANIFEST.

  5. Create a playlist of music that makes me want to MOVE.

  6. Embrace my flaws. They’re what make me UNIQUE!

  7. Stay motivated for LIFE…not just through Feb.

  8. TREAT myself to a new pair of fancy tennis shoes + workout clothes.

  9. Eat protein + vitamin rich ORGANIC FOODS.

  10. Love, nurture, cherish + adore ME!

  11. JUST DO IT!

My wish for all of you is to find more peace and happiness in 2013 than you ever thought possible.  It all starts with YOU!  Making the choice to love yourself will keep you motivated FOR LIFE!  Look ahead with excitement and let the adventure begin.  Make yourself proud sista!

Thank you for being part of this Sisterhood.  I plan to bring you even more tips, insight, inspiration and encouragement to help strengthen and empower you in 2013.  Please make a comment and share any topics you are interested in discussing.  I want to hear from you!

Lastly, I cannot stress enough the importance of goal setting and visualizing for the year ahead.  Take some quiet time, search your heart and write out your goals and dreams.  Take a few days to do this if need be!  Don’t rush it.  I make it a fun, childlike and creative process and pull out my markers.

A great idea is to list your goals in sections as well.  For example, list them by Personal and Career/Business or take it a step further and list them by 1. Spirit 2. Family 3. Body 4. Career.  I just looked over my 2012 goals and it’s fun to see what has transpired!  If you’re a Pinterest fanatic, create a board of your new year’s goals.  Hmmm, I think I may have to do that myself!

Remain in harmony with God’s will and plan for your life.

Happy New Year!

Be Healthy. Be Beautiful. Be Sane.

 

Hi Beautiful Girl,

Happy Friday! What do you have planned for the weekend?  I know I sound like a broken record, but I hope you find some time to decompress, recharge and calm your Spirit.  I won’t keep you from getting on with it so here’s just a few tips to help you feel healthier, more beautiful and hold on to your sanity!  I believe our inner beauty, health and wellness is much more important than the latest style and makeup tips.  If we don’t feel good on the inside, ultimately- we will not look good on the outside. 

The popularity of Green Tea has increased tremendously over the last 10 years. Have you incorporated it into your lifestyle yet? I encourage you to do so. There is a long list of health benefits including:

  • Increases metabolism (woohoo),
  • Lowers blood pressure,
  • Regulates glucose + insulin levels so it helps prevent diabetes,
  • Anti-viral,
  • Lowers cholesterol,
  • Reduces risks of cancer + alzheimers,
  • +PLUS+ the antioxidants help preserve the elasticity in the skin meaning LESS WRINKLES!

LATEST Q + A WEBISODE: No you aren’t crazy!

An important supplement I forgot to mention in the webisode (Brain Fart) is a great Vitamin B-Complex. I love it in sublingual form!  Helps with anxiety, depression, all symptons of PMS, fatigue, heart disease and more. 

FINAL TIP:  Enjoy nature. Take a walk. Stop + smell….

SOS TO THE RESCUE!

Giving you the tools…
to be free,
confident,
secure with yourself,
to embrace your quirks,
to own your unique beauty & style,
to walk tall in your fabulous-ness,
to be unapologetic,
to live life without restraints,
to realize your self-worth,
to truly take care of yourself, nurture your spirit and
to watch every single one of your dreams come to pass!

Love You Sister,

Tiff

High Five to Julie Comeau

SOS Superstars,

I am so thrilled to share this inspirational story with all of you!  Julie Comeau and I connected on Facebook a few years ago and she asked me to be part of her motivational book which releases this year and is appropriately titled “NEVER GIVE UP”.  I am honored to be part of her journey and honored to call her friend.  Get ready to be inspired by this amazing woman!

“Never say you CAN’T, until you try. Transforming myself has been one of the most difficult things that I have ever had to do.  I have lived with a leg injury since 2005 because I was given the wrong surgery and I have never been fixed. Since my first survival story made newspapers and radio back in 1999, my husband was my strength and he helped helping me through my physical challenges.  Then December 28th of 2010, my husband was diagnosed with stage 3 gallbladder cancer.  I had to now be his strength through his physical journey although I was still injured. 

I had no clue where or how to start rehabilitating and transforming myself, until I saw an SOS post by the amazing Tiffany Hendra and Natalie Bolton with the 7 steps workout in the Spring of 2011.  This was my new challenge and goal to become stronger, not only for myself, but for those around me that needed my help!  I can honestly say that SOS saved my life because of the 7 steps webisode.  It doesn’t matter how big or small you are or if you can walk or if you can’t for I am living proof that anything is possible.  If I can say anything to you, it would be, MIND OVER MATTER and let your passion guide you!

If something in your life has impacted you to the point that you think that you cannot move forward…FOCUS on the things that you still can do and never on the things that you can no longer do. Remember that the only person in your life that can help you take that next step is……YOU!”

My Ingredients for a Happy, Meaningful & Successful Life

Hey Gorgeous Girls!

Today’s message is short, sweet and to the point!  Please share an ‘ingredient’ that you have found to add happiness to your life..comment below!

Tiff’s Ingredients for a Happy, Meaningful & Successful Life:

  • Don’t let the Negative Nellie inside you strangle the Positive Polly in you! 
  • Treat others with respect & kindness…you get what you give.
  • Helping others is like a natural anti-depressant!  Feeling down?  Go find someone to help!
  • Work hard at everything you do. Laziness sucks!
  • Make learning a lifetime pursuit!
  • Laugh more & stop taking everything so serious.
  • Be present! The past is over.
  • Be flexible & open-minded!
  • Prioritize & use your time well. (and I do appreciate you taking the time to read this blog)
  • Eat right & exercise!  DUH!
  • Words are powerful…be mindful of what you say.
  • Always keep believing in yourself no matter the circumstance!
  • Take the high road!
  • Do not compare yourself to others…success to one person can be something totally different for another.
  • Be grateful for what you have…and you’ll get more of it! WooHoo!
  • Codependent relationships do not serve your highest good. You be you and let them, be them. Got it?  Good!
  • Your self-worth is not validated on anything external.  You are worthy of greatness simply because God put you on this Earth.
  • Fake it till ya make it! If you do it long enough, eventually it becomes the real thing!
  • Live with purpose & NEVER GIVE UP!

…add a dash of cayenne and your life will rock!

I lived too many years of my life with low self-worth, self-loathing and to put it plainly- I didn’t love myself.   I see many women today walking around zombie-like with their heads hanging down which tells the world “I’m not worthy”.   I want this epidemic to STOP!

Don’t forget: The “Thank You Giveaway” ends Friday, May 18th. Winner will be announced Saturday.  Who wants to see this agate bracelet on their arm?  To enter, simply:

  1. SHARE the “Rock the Red Jeans” video on your Facebook page or Tweet it.
  2. POST the following sentence on the SOS Facebook page, “I am bold and walk tall in my power”
