Slow down. 🌊
It felt good to go away from the busyness. Literally months of long days, stress at work and busy season. 🌊
But it felt good to slow down. It felt good to smell the ocean again. It felt good to walk into wide open spaces. It felt good to take deep breaths and exhale. ✨
I was reminded of dreams, promises and desires. ✨
Through conversations with strangers, quite time and long walks I began to dream again. 🌊
What will you do if you know it will inspires you to dream again?
¡SER DUEÑOS DE NUESTRO TIEMPO⌚! Una de las cosas que más motivan a emprender es precisamente esa libertad que te da "Ser tu propio jefe"💪🤳. °
Y no se trata de ser indiciplinados, poco trabajadores o cómo muchas personas piensan: "Poder dormir todo el día", nada más alejado de la realidad que eso🚫⚠️... Es más bien tener la capacidad de distribuir el tiempo a tu manera para poder meterte de lleno a tu proyecto o emprendimiento y entregarlo todo 👌. °
Porque cuando eres tú propio jefe trabajas 2 o 3 veces más de lo que antes como empleado lo hacías; pero eso es para ti y es más gratificante, sin duda🔝💼. ¿Cómo administran su tiempo? °

I am delighted to see more and more women going forward and creating their lives. They are showing up POWERFULLY and CONFIDENTLY by DOING. You can only consume so much and not DO something with the information. To TRANSFORM, you must put it into action.
If you aren’t showing up like you want to, I want you to take action. A small one daily. You’ll get In the habit of feeling the fear and doing it anyway. 💎So an action may look like this… You pick up the phone you call a mentor, a friend, and get details about how they got started into whatever it is that you want to do.
Your actions may look like you joining a group, going for a meet up, signing up for an online course, calling a coach to see if there may be a good fit for you, checking out community college courses, inviting a few of your friends that are inspiring and planning our next year’s must to list.
Whatever that looks like for you… Just take action doesn’t matter how small or large it is… It’s just you taking action.
If you want to talk, inbox me and I’ll give you an hour of my time to help you plan out your action.
Happy holidays and remember it’s always your choices, your actions that collectively over the days, months, years, that create the life that you want.. ! ❇️ #atxcoachforewomen#ichoosebold#boldgoals#lovewhatyoudo#femalefounders#womenempowerment#womensupportingwomen#womeninspiringwomen#womenentrepreneurs#bosslady#bosswoman#mindsetcoaching#mindsetcoachingforwomen#boldchoices#boldlife #2019 #finishstrong#entrepreneurmindset#takeaction#fearless
CEO of Equilibrium
Samantha has been working in the furniture business for over 13 years, 9 of which at her own store, Equilibrium. Samantha oversees all aspects of the business from marketing, advertising and orders to customer related issues in the store and online. She even creates all of the ads, website, the branding and does the store merchandising.
Over her career Samantha has gained many close relationships with multiple manufacturers. These excellent relationships have translated to amazing price points that she is able to pass on to her customers.
Samantha graduated from the Humber College arts program and is certified in Interior Design. This means you are not only buying from a independent store, you are buying from someone who has a keen eye for design that can help you transform all aspects of your space.
While Samantha was still in her early 20’s, she opened Equilibrium in The Junction on her own. As a young independent woman, she was faced with a lot of obstacles including sexism and agism, but also many great opportunities.
She often noticed a misconception from her customers that she must have been given Equilibrium, all the while Samantha had earned her own way and actually grew up in poverty. None of the negative experiences stopped Samantha from pursuing her career, instead they motivated her to continue on the road to success.
In 2017 Samantha and her husband received amazing news that she was pregnant with their daughter. She worked at Equilibrium right up until the day before she had her. Believe it or not, Samantha even went back to work five days after giving birth. Having her daughter helped put things into perspective for Samantha. Instead of continuing to be in the trendy Junction area and working six days a week, Samantha decided to relocated to a smaller sample showroom nearby and put even more focus on her online store.

Protect your peace!
Protect your mind!
Protect your space!
If you have to block them, do!
If you have to cease communications, do!
If you have to unfollow or unfriend them, do so sharply! Waste no time!
So many people project their fears and insecurities to you, sometimes with the intention of protecting you but if what they say does not align to the man or woman God has called you to be, just flee!
It is so important to know God and know what he is saying to "you" per time. Even if the message is coming from a prophet, what they say to you should be a confirmation of what God is already saying. Build a personal and intimate relationship with your maker!
There are so many things going on in the world, but choose to protect your mind, your space and your peace from things that will take you off your own lane!

Good morning beautiful people!!! Miss Brenda Lee is back with an KILLA ab workout 💁🏻 This back to back combo will get your abs on 🔥
20 Mountain Climbers
20 Commando Planks
30 Second Plank
Repeat this 4 times and BOY if this doesn’t get you feeling it the next day, I dunno what will 😂 .
Today I want to hit you with something that I used to do. The old Brenda would do. And that is PEOPLE PLEASING.
I wouldn’t stand up for myself
I would stay quiet
I would let people walk all over me
I would be left feeling frustrated, anxious, unhappy
I would let people dictate my life choices
Lemme tell you, the sooner you WAKE UP and have a VOICE for yourself, the sooner you will feel truly FREE & HAPPY.
At the end of the day, this is YOUR LIFE. The sooner you take ownership over everything in your life, including your happiness, the sooner you realise that sure there may be influences in your life that stress you out, that make life tough, but it is YOU that allows that to affect you, to get to you. It’s the STANDARDS you set for yourself and the bar you set for others to treat you.
❌Stop letting things slide
❌Stop saying it’s “okay”
❌Stop saying “sure”
❌Stop running around like a headless chook trying to please everyone
START SAYING NO!
🚫No you cannot do that because that is unfair
🚫No this is MY LIFE and I’m going to do what makes me happy
🚫No I cannot drive you because I have other personal commitments
🚫No I will NOT do something that doesn’t align with me
Draw a line in the sand. Decide on what you WILL do on one side and what you WON’T do on the other. Now have INTEGRITY for yourself and stick to it.
I hope you all have a lovely amazing day, Monday’s sets the week off with GREATNESS. It is actually one of my favourite days. Your days are all a matter of perspective 😉

[How to have BIG CONFIDENCE in sharing your passions with the world]
Today I shared a wellness workshop with a group of lovely women who are ready to take some actions in 2019 for their health and wellness goals. I loved every second of it, sharing what I love most: empowering women to be and share their greatness by clarifying goals, defining what was most important to them, and learning strategies to making shit happen instead of staying stagnant or waiting for someone else to deliver them solutions. I LOVE sharing what I love and if you have something you love, you've got to share it. Here are my top 3 tips for building BIG CONFIDENCE in doing just that:
1️⃣ Cultivate/develop/ strengthen YOU: the more rich with substance you are from the inside, the more you feel confident with who you are. You know your values, your strengths, your purpose, and your desires, and you are unwavering in how you live your life according to your truths.
2️⃣ Know that we are here to EXPRESS: we are here to share who we are and benefit others by our sharing. Humans are social animals, made to interact with others in communities. Acknowledge and embrace the fact that it is our birthright and our privilege to be able to share with others. So share as much as you can! The world needs your passion.
3️⃣ There's no one else like YOU in this world: we are so special and we don't even know it. There ain't no one else in the world exactly as YOU are, and that's pretty damn amazing. Figure out what it is that makes you YOU and know that there's no one that can do it better than exactly YOU.
Viola! Here's to more sharing of your greatness in the new year and beyond. 💕 And if this is a goal you are ready to work on for 2019, I am here to support you, hit me up! 💗
“People will treat you with as much or as little respect as you allow them to… If you’re not able to value yourself no one else will either... Every day you’re choosing who you are and what you believe about yourself, and you’re setting the standards for the relationship in your life.” Girl, Wash Your Face by Rachel Hollis #selfloveisnotselfish#setthestandard#personaldevelopment#sundayvibes
#Sundaywiswordsforuandme...Mehn listen..Beyonce didnt become #queenb in oneday... she worked hard in her girl group..Obama didnt become president in oneday.. he was an intern first..why do we give up so fast when things are not going quite how we plan or vision it to be.. it takes hard work, humility and dedication to get to where you want to be.. we all have bad days and doubtful moments so dont let that stop you from getting busy..its a marathon not a sprint.. Also remember it takes 10000 hours/5 and half years to master a craft so GET UP!!!!! and #Neverstoptrying#survivalofthefittest
Today and everyday...may you be as confident in yourself as you are in others. May you always know you got this. 🙏✨💪 #thebfflife®

Z nynějšího týdne nemám žádné zajímavé poznatky, které by mohli obohatit Váš život, takže to necháme bez názoru. 😆 Ono když lidi hlava nehlava chtějí něco vymyslet, tak je to stejně největší propadák a tak je to se vším 🤣 takže asi bych popřála jen fajn čtvrtek 🤪

Tired of your slow metabolism?
I’ve heard it a lot since my Day 1 video!
“But Alex, my metabolism is just slow”.........
In my video I say “eat more to burn fat”
Generally a “slow metabolism” means an ADAPTED metabolism. aka your body has adapted to the stressors you’ve placed on it or the food you’ve been giving it.
‼️STRESSORS‼️ - doing a LOT/excessive of cardio or even weightlifting. Your body adapted to that energy expenditure and needs QUALITY FUEL to recover and survive.
🚶🏻♀️DAILY ACTIVITY🚶🏻♀️ - you may be a very sedentary person. It’s very common for people to think they’re more active than they are. We are MEANT to move! If you’re getting 2k-3k steps a day, you’re not going to NEED the calories of someone getting 10k-12k.
🍟SNACK ATTACK🍟 - are you a grazer? You’ll eat your main meals, well portioned out, very balanced, then, in between your snackin mindlessly and probably eating an additional 500-800 calories!
⬆️piggy backing⬆️ - those “0 calorie” toppings or “low cal” options all actually have ~5 calories in them, it sounds small, but constant addition of these to EVERY meal HEAVILY, will make a big difference!
👶🏻 YOURE NOT REAAAAALLLLYYYY WORKING OUT👶🏻 - you go to the gym, you go through the motions, you check your Instagram, you work your jaw (chattin), then you leave without even touching a weight. As the AVERAGE weight loss client do I tell them to be DYING at the end of their set..? I encourage it. This does NOT mean throw weights around. It means focus on your form, SQUEEEEEEEZE your muscles, and push yourself till your uncomfortable. If you’re chatting DURING a set, you’re not working out hard enough.

We've all read a book that's changed our life.
But what would have happened if all those people with BIG impactful messages had let their fear, doubt, or lack of feeling ready getting in the way of getting their important work into the world. The world would be a much dimmer place without their light, and they would be forever asking themselves 'what if?'
What if the book, or project, or business that could change someone's life is waiting inside you, and all you have to do is create it?
No more hesitating, no more waiting.
You are powerful.
Your voice and your message has the power to change lives and affect millions.
And you, yes you, have the light and power within you to create a life that dreams are made of.
Shine your light so bright you illuminate others along the way. I believe in you.
