Are you successful?

Updated: Mar 31, 2019

How do you measure SUCCESS?

--Do you want to eat healthier, have more energy, feel amazing, and perhaps lose some weight? How will you decide when you’re healthy?

--Do you want to declutter your home and life of things that no longer serve you to make space for things that do serve you? How will you know when you’re done?

--Do you want to exercise more, spend more time reading, practicing self-care, hang out with loved ones more? How will you feel when you’re taking care of yourself?

--Do you want to remove toxins from your life and your home? What will be the sign that your home is toxin free?

How will you know when you’ve been successful?

Success isn’t measured by the number on a scale, or by what others think, or by what the media tells you, or by the amount of money in your bank account or by how much stuff you have.

I have three motto's that I believe are key to success.

1- Make Every Effort – do your very best and give it your all, no matter what you’re doing; raising kids, working out, eating healthy, working at your job or being kind to others. If you make every effort in whatever you pursue, you can be rest assured that you have been successful in that thing. Example, your goal is to lose 20 lb in three months, so you eat whole foods and stop eating processed junk, you work out for 30 minutes a day and get enough rest every night, but at the end of three months you’ve only lost 15 lbs. Knowing that you’ve made every effort and you’re now living a healthy lifestyle, you can feel confident that you are being successful already, and that your goal is within your reach.

2- Expect to Thrive- to thrive is to prosper, succeed and do well. Living in expectation is to expect great thing for your life. When you live your life expecting to thrive, you will take the steps required in order to bring about the results you desire. The first step to thriving is to believe you are worthy, then to take small steps in the direction of your goals. That is success.

3- Keeping It Super Simple – people tend to over complicate everything, making you feel like you can never succeed, or at least not as well as the other person. The truth is, keeping it simple makes it much more likely that you’ll succeed. I want to be clear, just because you’re keeping it simple, it doesn’t mean that it’s easy. Making changes is hard, doing something new is hard, staying the course is hard, which is all the more reason why it’s important to uncomplicate things. Are you eating healthier? Stick with easy to prepare meals and snacks. Do you want to work out? There’s no need for an expensive gym membership, try walking, workout to videos you have at home, dancing. Finding the simple way to accomplish your goals will help you have sustained success.


“Success is the sum of small efforts, repeated day-in and day-out. Robert Collier

The people I work with know that success is consistently taking action while staying focused on their goal.
