A study published in the journal Personality and Social Psychology Bulletin found that people in low positions of power may perform better by using self-affirmations to calm their nerves. 😖
Study participants who first called to mind their greatest job strengths or other positive assets went on to operate with more confidence when placed in high-stakes situations. 🧗🏾♀️
What’s your #affirmation? 💛🌱

She never seemed shattered; to me,
she was a breathtaking mosaic
of the battles she’s won.

Day 4: Embody #Resilience
Good evvvvvvening! Ahhh, resilience. This one I was like, #ItMe. 💁🏻♀️💎 This is where I shine. Where I THRIVE. I revel in a comeback. My bounce back game is hella strong. 🙌🏻 Two of my most powerful qualities are my drive & willpower, and I’ve learned to use them wisely. I also have a super strong heart. When I go through shit I don’t let it keep me down. Too long. My focus quickly turns to learning and growing. I may get knocked down, real low, but man, how I’ll rise. #resilientaf#putthatonmyresume#watchmework

For the last week, we have been going through the process of what a Resilient Athlete should do after they have had a successful performance.
The final step of the process is: .
DON'T GET CAUGHT UP IN THE SHORT TERM
It is easy to get caught up with one successful performance. However, like we said at the beginning of the week, 1 successful performance is not the goal here.
Yesterday, the Leafs were able to pick up a much needed win against the Lightning with Mitch Marner scoring the game winner. Tonight, they play the Panthers and we will see if the team as a whole will be focused on the overall goal, or if they will still be thinking of their successful performance they had last night.
Stopped by the redwoods 🌲 these trees are absolutely awe-inspiring. This tree is called the Immortal Tree. It's called that because it is a survivor. It's 950-1000 years old and has survived lightning strikes, loggers, a forest fire, and a flood. 🔥 Similar to the people of Humboldt #humboldtcounty#resilient#redwoods
As of right now this is my physique that I'm sustaining. I can't really improve size or shred out here. I don't have the proper foods to eat and i can't eat as much as I usually do. Due to being out here doing training, all I been doing is body weight. Moral of the story is, there's always something you can do. Just because no one else is doing anything doesn't mean you don't do anything. Always work have #fortitude and be #resilient. Jesus Christ was the best example of that. 😤

Sharing this post and photo of my father and I from 8 years ago. This is one of the fun things about social media; the keeping of our memories. Although, should it all crash, there they all go. But for now, here they are, in digital form, reminding us of where we’ve been.
I remember when I was experiencing that blissful state- I thought I would forever remain there 😂🤣
Here’s to this adventurous and unpredictable journey of a life!!! Phew.
Let’s go. Next phase. 📖🍁🌚🌝🌏💫💥🎶🎶🎶🎶🎶🎶🎶🎶🎶🎶🎶🎶🎶🎶

Life couldn't be more wonderful right about now. Feeling super grateful for all the wrong choices I've made which have molded me into who I am today and even MORE grateful for learning how to make the right choices which have gotten me to this blissful state of being. Knowing both sides of the spectrum allows me to see BIGGER. God. is .GOOD.
peace and abundant love to all of you beautiful people~
Wow, I never thought that something I privately struggled with would resonate so much with others. 😳
My latest Forbes article is about self-compassion, an often misunderstood but vitally important trait.🤷🏼♀️
And it has quickly become my most popular piece.🔥
While my article focuses on its application to your career, its message clearly extends to your life.🎯
Practicing self-compassion and treating yourself the supportive way you would a treasured friend isn’t just about feeling good, it also supports lifelong learning, diminishes feelings of failure, and enables you to become more resilient.🙌🏼
And as we make our way into the weekend, I hope you’ll agree that we could all use a little help in those departments.❤️

For the first year after the motorbike accident, I was quite private with what I was going through. It wasn’t until this past year that I started to really open up on social media about the struggles I am experiencing. I thought that if I talked too much about it, the pain that I was in would start to define me and that would become my story. 🌱
The reason I began to share what I have been going through is that I have an opportunity to relate to so many people who struggle with chronic pain and mental health issues related to pain such as depression, anxiety and in my case, I was also diagnosed with PTSD. And sometimes despite all the smiling pictures I post, I have some really bad days. Like yesterday. 🌱
Yesterday was the first appointment of 3 where I had to get 2 injections in my lower back. Now some of you who may have had something similar may think these aren’t that painful. But for someone who struggles with PTSD these moments where my body feels under attack have an extreme effect on me. I know I am fortunate to even have access to these procedures, but afterwards, I am so mentally and physically drained. Prior to the appointment I have to mentally prepare myself and thank God I have essential oils to ease the stress. I basically bathed in my Magnolia yesterday. And then afterwards I need to clear my schedule so that I can allow time to calm my nervous system and show my body some much needed nurturing. 🌱
I know that some of you may be curious that as an advocate for holistic living why I even opted for this procedure to begin with.

I saw as both a firefighter and journalist that when we ignore the laws of nature when designing anything, we make a mess.
And I know as a neurotransformational coach that when we suppress rather than actively manage our internal stress, we’re not as strong, connected, and impactful as we could be.
When you give yourself the gift of less stress and more resilience, you can be more present to love and the magic of being alive.
Q: What can help me be more resilient?
A: It is about mindset, actions and relationship. I would first recommend taking the Resilience Quiz (link is in bio). This will help you see what areas of resilience you are already strong in and which specific areas need more growth. Reflect on the areas you score highly in and answer the following questions: What have I been doing to feed this strength? How could you build off your strengths and bridge this strength into the other areas that need improving?
For some of us being more resilient may require us to improve the way we connect and relate to others. Learning how to create, seek and sustain trusting healthy secure attachment bonds with others. Also learning how to be vulnerable, reaching out, allowing others to help us, etc. We are social beings and the health of our relationships impact our health as individuals.
There are those of us that are doing well in maintaining resilient relationships but we may need to work on managing our thoughts and beliefs. For example to be resilient requires us to look at failures and challenges as learning experiences and opportunities for growth so that we may continue to move forward versus getting stuck.
There are also those of us that may have our thoughts under control but not our emotions. Resilience requires us to know how to manage our emotions in a way that empowers us and provides us insight and rich experiences versus taking control over us and becoming destructive.
I would like to talk to a couple people to learn about what has helped and/or hindered your development of resilience for a project I’m working on. Click link in bio to schedule the quick interview. Thank you in advance. 🤗
Resilient. My word for this year. A good friend used this word to describe me once and I brushed it off, thinking that’s not me! The past couple of years I have clung to the word hope, but hope kind of implies sitting back and wishing. Now I’m taking control again, making things happen, and I could not be more frightened and excited all at once! .
Also, here are someone else’s words about words that I enjoy 😊 ...
. “One word--just a single, simple word--can bring a variety of thoughts and influences. A combination of words can make sense or express foolishness.
One word could mean approval or denial, blessing or cursing, doubt or knowledge, friendship or enmity. The way we say one word, the intonation we use, may cause love or hate. Words can be harsh, melodious, soft-spoken, announced, or even shouted. They can roll like a wave and enthuse and bring victory and pride. We read in Shakespeare: “Who is it in the press that calls on me? I hear a tongue, shriller than all the music, cry ‘Caesar’” (Julius Caesar, act 1, scene 2, lines 15–17). Words can be distilled drop by drop like a poison, or eat away like a cancer. They can be articulated or mumbled; but every time a word is said, watch it, because it can never be retrieved. It is gone with the wind, gone forever.
Usually we select our words, sometimes using a particular vocabulary, and we employ certain words because of their meanings and the connotations that we want to project. Usage varies, depending on whether we ask, want, pray, persuade, force, influence, or subdue.
Words are a form of personal expression. They differentiate us as well as fingerprints do. They reflect what kind of person we are, and tell of our background, and depict our way of life. They describe our thinking as well as our inner feelings.”
😇💪🏼 No capes needed; I’m a very strong woman. A warrior goddess. I listen to my own voice and inner guidance. I got this. I don’t listen to outsiders; ONLY hear them to gain more insight. I share to release emotion, learn, grow and evolve. I’m never falling back or falling victim. Every choice I make is right on time. Right in alignment with my higher knowledge of love and my own spirituality. Every chapter, every breakdown, every fight, every make-up session is the path to understanding. The absolute greatest intimacy of all... I am so naked. I am so powerful, never manipulated. I am only brave and fearless in building the life I desire. #nothardonmyself#resilient#powerful#soulonamission#warriorgoddess#spiritual
The strength of a military spouse is one of a kind. The journey isn’t easy, it’s not meant to be. It’s not for the faint of heart. It’s not a cake walk at all. And sometimes it just downright sucks. And it always starts with fear. No matter how many times you’ve done it, it always starts with fear.
We get so good at doing it all that people think of us as wonder women, and honestly, we deserve the cape. So wear your cape with pride because you have such an amazing strength.
You, my friend, are a badass!
This week our students bundled up in their warmest gear to venture outdoors in some of the coldest temperatures we’ve had this winter. Students kept warm by staying active, whether skiing on the first Whiteface Day of the season, sledding on snow-covered hills, or hiking up to the crag cabin for a cozy night by the woodstove. #rugged#resourceful#resilient#NCS
