Change your thinking!


~ ~ It’s not about what happens.  It’s about perspective.  I may not be able to change what takes place, but I can always choose to change my thinking.  ~ ~ Michelle Sedas

The above quote tugged at me today and I knew I had to share it.  I thought it may be as helpful to you as I found it to be for me.  For you see, I’ve been stretching out of my comfort zone for a second week, eating the frog shall we say (don’t know what that means?  CLICK HERE!)  and trying to continue Inner Hotshot University Have you been trying to stretch a bit too this week?

I know it’s not easy to choose to stretch out of your comfort zone, but I will tell you that it’s well worth it!  Everyday I continue to try to say yes to opportunity which was my commitment last week.  I’ve also tried to allow others to be themselves and to just work on myself.  In other words, I’m trying to be my own cheerleader and not look to others to praise me.  Does this happen to you?  It’s a bad habit that I”m breaking, but it’s a work in progress ~ kind of like me!

So what have you been working on?  Do you need any help?  Want a teammate?  I’m ready to give you  a hand, applaud you with my own 2 hands and lend you a wing until you remember how to fly with your own two wings!

“When you change the way you look at things, the things you look at change.” ~ Dr. Wayne Dyer

When the going gets tough, the tough get going and change their perspective!

Come along with me!  The best in life is meant to be!

Shine On!


You’ve Got Peeps!


So we’re ending week one of IHU ~ Inner Hotshot University!  How are you doing with stretching outside your comfort zone?  Have you done anything yet?  Did you make a commitment to do one specific thing like take a zumba class or read an entire book or are you doing like I did ~ saying yes to opportunities that come my way?  You know I am excited to hear how you were able to stretch a bit this week!

I know it’s not easy.  Believe me, I know!  I’ve been stretching out my comfort zone since last week!  I’ve been talking to more people than normal which is fun once I get over my initial shyness.  Well, I know for some of you this is hard to believe, but it’s true!

So today is your day!  Being a part of IHU means that you’ve got peeps!  So share below in the comments what your experiences were this week so that you can hear the applause, feel the support and regain your Hotshot self!

1. Did you attempt to stretch out of your comfort zone?

2.  Did  you accomplish your commitment?

3.  Please share what it was with us!

4.  Are you ready to do it again this week? 🙂

For me, I will tell you that I am all 4 yes!  I did say yes to opportunities and I was incredibly busy doing it!  I had fun with friends I hadn’t seen in a bit.  I tried ‘eating the frog’ everyday which made everything else taste virtually like an ice cream sundae (woo hoo)!  For me, I found that as if by magic, I was connected with others and was able to reignite that connector within myself which allowed me to help others by linking them together.  What a great feeling to be able to help 2 people who could help each other to connect!  We all have that ability to connect with each other and to connect others for a common good!

So for the coming week, I’ll have to think about what my commitment is ~ I’ll let you know tomorrow!  In the meantime, thanks for participating!  I hope you are feeling a bit more energized about life!  I know I am!
