My greatest passion is empowering others to improve their quality of life and achieve their goals by choosing healthy thoughts and habits.

Each Person is unique and has the power to affect the world in a unique and beautiful way.

Who Are You Really?

When did you last spend time with yourself to figure out what really makes you tick? What unique qualities do you have that set you apart from the rest of the world?

What talents do you have that could really make a difference to those around you if you better utilized them?

Do you take time for introspection every once in a while in order to make sure that you are still on the right path?

It can be easy to lose track of your true identity in this crazy world where people are often putting each other down and different causes are pulling people in a million directions.

Do yourself a favor, and take some time to reflect and make sure that you aren't letting the people and circumstances around you determine who you think you are.

Be the Person You Were Meant to Be

I saw the Bee Movie recently and a quote that started off the film really hit me hard. The quote goes as follows:

“According to all known laws of aviation, there is no way that a bee should be able to fly. Its wings are too small to get its fat little body off the ground. The bee, of course, flies anyways. Because bees don't care what humans think is impossible.”

Don't limit the results in your life to what other people think is possible.

It's time for us to learn a lesson from the bees. Live up to your full potential! Make a difference! Inspire! Show the world what you are really capable of rather than limiting your expectations to what the world thinks is possible.

How often are you living your life as the person that you think the world wants you to be?

You owe it to yourself to invest some time in really pondering about who you are and who you want to be.

Don't Be Afraid To Be Yourself!

It is so hard to be yourself when you are convinced that the people around you won't approve of who you really are.

It might take a lot of courage for you to jump out of your comfort zone and be the real person you were meant to be, but trust me when I say the unique characteristics that set you apart are exactly what you are meant to contribute to the world.

Let's say a person, or even a large group of people, liked carrots, but they despised other vegetables.

The fact that they prefer carrots and don't want to eat any vegetables besides carrots, doesn't change the fact that they would be a lot better off taking in the nutrition that a wider variety of vegetables has to offer.

The truth is that some people aren't going to approve of who you are. They're too stuck on their metaphorical carrots to realize that there are other vegetables out there that are equally beneficial whose key nutrients they are lacking.

People need you to make the unique contribution to the world that only you can make.

This books is a great spring board for checking to see if you're being true to yourself and contributing as much as you could to the world. I highly recommend i

Your Positive Influence Will Empower Others

While some people may be intimidated by the amazing person that you are in the beginning, eventually the very fact that you are brave enough to be yourself will help to liberate and empower others.

Author Marianne Williamson stated this idea powerfully in her book, A Return to Love:

“Our deepest fear is not that we are inadequate. Our deepest fear is that we are powerful beyond measure. It is our light, not our darkness that most frightens us. We ask ourselves, 'Who am I to be brilliant, gorgeous, talented, fabulous?' Actually, who are you not to be? You are a child of God. Your playing small does not serve the world. There is nothing enlightened about shrinking so that other people won't feel insecure around you. We are all meant to shine, as children do. We were born to make manifest the glory of God that is within us. It's not just in some of us; it's in everyone. And as we let our own light shine, we unconsciously give other people permission to do the same. As we are liberated from our own fear, our presence automatically liberates others.”

Rather than making others feel intimidated by confidently living up to your true potential, soon through your simple actions of being yourself you will be able to inspire others to realize that they could find greater freedom in being true to their unique natures as well.


...As we let our own light shine, we unconsciously give other people permission to do the same. As we are liberated from our own fear, our presence automatically liberates others.

-Marianne Williamson

Bring On the Joy and Fulfillment In Life

You will find that as you finally decide to fully embrace your true nature, you will find a great deal more joy and fulfillment in life than you had been experiencing in the past.

When you are faithful to the morals and standards that you truly believe in, you can always be confident with who you are no matter what other people think.

When you are doing the things that you are passionate about, life will always be exciting to you, and you will find yourself being more productive with your time.

When you contribute using the attributes that are unique to you, you will be making an influence in the world that nobody else could ever make in the same way.

Not only that, but you will in your own little way, or even big way, encourage others to live true to their own nature as well.

Be brave! Be the person that you are meant to be!
