The word me so that can see everybody whose, like us, who felt excited yes, loving, this idea this is yes me me me me me pumped all the things. Yes, lots of people now, here's something intro. thing if you wrote that if you started to write this and the negative voice in your head was already at play. right.

I want you to write yes, if, if you started to get shame out of that process, instead of joy I want you to write. Yes, because I want to make sure that we see that there is a difference, because people process that very different

There are a lot of people whose to write it down and they don't know I'm in there. Like I want to, could they know their like. This is crap. This is garbage I can envision the future.

Talk to my excited friends you keep you gotta be those cheerleaders. You got it. You are already pumps out for yourself and in this community. I want you to keep that energy going, but right now I want to talk specifically to those the view who felt anxiety who got bum doubt who were starting to think of negative things about yourself? I want to talk to you specifically that posture will not serve.
you did the work to get here. You signed up for the class said. I believe that I made for more. I think that there is something more power. Simple in my life, you believe that about yourself enough to be here to find the time who in the world has two hours in the middle of a week? They you found the time you made the commitment you are here. That is the first step your mission this year, more than anything is to stop beating yours, Up the shame that you're carrying around about past decisions that you ve made or who you wish, you could be a what you think you wish you could have done. It's not, serving you I mean, I know it's more normal for a lot of us to choose. to believe in negative things about ourselves instead of the positive, but let's get real for a second What does that mean that music, We shall appear once a month
and you're going to go through the motion and you're never going to buy into any of it and you're going to help what you're helping is it, I'm going to say something to you. That's going to spark this going to turn around thirty six years of self recrimination, you're hoping you're holding out for a hero, you're, hoping that a teacher or a book or a podcast costs or somebody's gonna help. You love yourself and when I am to you is that you gotta make the decision to fight for it, because you can keep Looking at you can keep doing these things and I'm gonna get that most of you have Youtube. the gym membership, you read: book. You did the pod cast. Maybe you went to the conference, you tried the thing you keep hoping that something outside yourself. It's gonna change, who you are in here and the only one that's going to change. You aren't hears you and the first step to that that you have to believe it's possible and you're, not gonna, believe anything is possible. If you keep beating yourself up, So I want you to
the song by ludicrous. You find a radio edit version, because the original version has a lot of passwords in it. The songs as move blank get the way get the way. Blank get out the way. Ok, that's we're going. We were like amen, preach, ludicrous ain't were shut up in in this kind of church. So just go with me. Why, I start to have negative self talk. Personally. Yes, me, two. I get I having society I have this. Is none of the things that I do or say, or the life I'm living is the result, of our figured it all out, and none of this stuff bothers me anymore. That's crap! someone tells you that if anyone that you're learning from our is teaching, you tells you that they don't deal with such anymore there there you should runaway Khazar a wire. I still do with these things all the time. So my personal for this is a ludicrous song. called move, be word get out the way.
the totally inappropriate song but That is why and your own version, if that offend you, I'm sorry, but when I, feeling anxious I feel- and I hear that negative self tat I might first of all I gotta figure we move my body. That's why gee matters. If your watch the sitting down right now stand up. If you're dealing with the things, I think you need to set up. We need to move your body, but for me personally, I play ludicrous song move get out the way get up the wagon did up. That is me. came to my inner jerk that or radio- that in her voice? That tells me all the reasons I'm not gonna. Measuring up. Look, it's gonna keep popping up, voice. Your head is going to keep popping up. You need a physical q. And this is good for anybody for any of you who even the people who said yes, I'm excited, you are certainly going have moments of anxiety or not feel, like you're sure and you're gonna hear that voice, but come up with a name for that waste
Let's call that name, PAM. Ok, Pam is that annoying voice, your head, that says you're not enough. You can't do this. Let me tell you all the reasons that you failed before. Let me touch what Sarah gonna think of you when she finds us out of what What's more ISAF from eighth grade, when she sees that you're trying to do thing with your life: what she's gonna think about that voices, PAM, ok, pal I want you to assign. I want you to know now. Not only do I want pay, I don't want him to have a name that voice in your hair What do you imagine her PAM? You know PAM. Imagine the like most annoying. Imagine you this is the person you're you're working at the restaurant Panza one, that's gonna, she's asking to speak to your manager. Ok, that's who payment! payments, the wine who is asking if Europe Sure if you really love your children cause you work. That's who PAM is ok the older lady in your church, who says route
Things would like she gets to get away with it, cause she's old, that's pan, or she told basically imagine her she's, the worst she's a worse, hands the worst. If that voice was a real person standing in front of you saying those things I can imagine this with me. Imagine that lady she's got Number, John and Kate, plus eight anyone where archaic God no one can godly had that crazy hair cut back their cup ham has ok and, and its back here like like a Thanksgiving Turkey, okay, so that's whose coming out you right now that person is standing in front of you and she's like you're, not smart enough, you're, not strong enough. You're never gonna, do it you're, never gonna. Have it he's, never gonna love. You you're, never going to be good enough. If a real person carrying out you like that, you be like many and maybe you're gonna like me and you be, maybe maybe get rough? Ok maybe you're like
I met a crazy person today, The K Godwin Haircut, I met her today you go the other direction or I don't. I don't even know other ways to deal with that kind of person, but the one thing I know for a fact you would not do someone came out. You like that is stand there and take it down it's in your head is as real to you as a person saying those things, and yet you take it right. So you need physical q and for me, that's dancing, is always gonna, be dancing when you change your physical state listen to me and write it down when you change your physical state. You change our emotional state every single time. Every single time. So when you hear that negative talk in your head, man, PAM turn on your ludicrous move. It the way get out the way get out. The way you need to do something to give that thought out of your mind are right, you're never gonna get anywhere If you don't get out of this habit,
of not believing years in yourself and the first to believing in yourself is being strong enough to silence the voice in your the voice in your head is not going to go away. You're gonna, silence her and six may where they have to do it again and six, Fourthly, we have to do it again over and over and over and over and what will happen. Amazing thing happens next time, it'll take seven minutes, and then two weeks from now, You got a whole days without hearing that in your head shop against me, and you got to do it again and you got it but again the answer to everything Issue in your life is a habit that will help you navigate around it. Ok so, you and vision this life that you had right, you envisioned this listen that you want to be for some of us. That was really positive for some of us that was negative, but we're all gonna get to a state
a positivity about where you're going. We spend so much time and energy and money trying to how to feel better. We tree so terms instead of getting to the root cause of why we don't have the energy that we want or the right mood or maybe our memory or our creativity is suffering whatever it is instead of China. to take on those issues after the fact Have you ask yourself how you're sleeping good night. Rest helps boost immunity, improves recovery and absolutely increases energy And if you are looking for better quality sleep, then you need to know about sleep number, a quiet. Mattress effects your emotional well being, and some

You know where it is that you want to go you you ve written down, and I will
challenge you to if you did a few sentences, if that's not a crystal clear vision for you, I will you just spend sent afterward done together. I want you to write more. I want you to Philip all pages of what that future. Best version of you looks like this year. now there's a really powerful thing for me and I hope for you I want you to describe. That vision with the word so that some. I went to a personal growth conference that really stuck with me. The thai robins of her me talk about this time by and he. how to find where he said windows a dog become yours When does the dog become yours? I'm gonna give you the answer. It's when you give it a name, and you ask it to when you call so without for a second when you give it a name, and you ask it to come when you call and so when you imagine the few
it's your version of you. You need to have a word that you associate with that image Cosette it's you, but it's not you. It's an its version of you is a bigger version of you and you need to know what it is and so forth I'm sitting at that conference. was there and deal with their. We ought to choose our word, our power word and he is correct makes you jump over Daniel like scream. Your word you're like like I'm late. about whatever. When I had that moment, I envisioned but stick with me and trip out for a second I was a blogger at the time I was a blogger. I ran this lifestyle blog. I did advertisements for like with liquid bleeds like that was my job and ice. I stood there. and I did this exercise, I envision the future of myself and the first summit I didn't have a lot of courage. I'm kind of wrote down like stupid, like I want more money or whatever like generic, and then
it was like no do you're here, you're all an you promised yourself you'd, be here in this moment, nobody's going to see these notes. I just really crazy things. I was really in my heart what I really want to do, and what I really want to do is build a media company. I this vision, that I can build a media company that created content for women all around the world that spired them and gave them tools to change their life. Hello, years ago. This was a crazy idea, ironic, I wanna be it so, and so he was like you gotta, give it a name. Give it a name, and I will, but I need a word. I needed word that- symbolizes. What This vision looks like to me and in media that the high person and media like going back forever, is called a mobile, a mode and it's not a word- that you hear a lot of people leaving for themselves and stifling unaware that you here women claim and as I'm sitting this conference, I'm like that,
is a cool word When I m vision on mobile, A mobile, a mobile there's all sorts things that I can associate with that so suddenly choosing a word actually gave me more ideas gave me more things to envision, so I those who are mobile, I'm so inspired by and I was so inspired by. I gotta talk to wear I got the word mobile tattooed on my rest Dave I'd like a nervous breakdown and I'm not I am not exaggerating that first I got a tattoo which I and net neither one of us has had had two's. Secondly, it shows a word that was like the super powerful strong word whenever people in like women at church, would see the tattoo and maybe like. What's that fan I'd say mobile, never, like all the interesting because you know well, five to checks or not That was the claim. The word mobile for themselves, but it was my word. It was his word wasn't pam charge. It was my word and so you
to know. I love these vibrant powerhouse. Inspirational love Maria, like I didn't see this did the tattoo. It's their promise, inspiration empowered. All of these things that I'm not oh, my gosh, I'm not saying you need to go tattooed on your body by for me so powerful, because me calling my shot it was me in a moment of like strain and bravery, saying that's who I want to be That's who I want to be, and I don't care if it freaks you out. That's who I want to be so I know that a lot of you and time that we start to to step on our own personal growth journey and we start to grow euphoric audacious com, like looking all these things, powerful, spectacular, rider, embrace moxie focus freedom. These words are sowing ground what you guys, but the time that we start to step forward and our own power, we started
You work on ourselves. A lot of times will freak out the people in our lives. So that something that you have encountered like. Have you ever gone on a diet diet? was the easiest once I feel like most of us have at some point you start to do something less left a diet like the ever done that, where you get you really getting into something you really liking it and you family gives you a hard time. They're like oh, so. Where does not gonna go to tackle Tuesday anymore? Also, yours going to drink again, also where it like, we came and have fine didn't you ever had that in your life, for like people give you a hard time or maybe your husband is like a way I'm supposed to watch the kid. So you can go on IRAN or we I'm supposed to watch the kids that you can write this, book you want or right there are people so often when you try to make yourself better. That will freak out write your mom you're, an laws like yes, people like all yes, people, listen to me
any time that you began to step more fully into yourself any time that you start to do work on you you won't even mean too, but you doing work on you will challenge the people who are not working on themselves. Any time that you start to believe in yourself and fight for that self care and fight for the time. to go on IRAN to pray, to write a book to You know: do her hair dear make of whatever your friends your family, they will intentionally see it as an accusation about how their living their lives. So what happened? is that either out of love you doing something awesome, even if your Some thing is just like a you know. I went on a walk around the neighborhoods. I promised myself. I move more this year. You doing you're awesome thing challenges there. A lack of awesome right mediocre people, people that
ok with being mediocre, will contain to drag you back down to mediocrity? if you can be at their level than they don't have to question. What's going wrong in their life right, You are going to have people as you sat on this journey of personal development this year, you're on fire, we're in here together with all fired up. You're gonna have people in your life, you don't like it. Some people are going to be passiveaggressive about it. Some people are gonna be outright vocal about it. Some people gonna be like Dave, but it is possible to show up for yourself And your vision of your life, out, leaving them behind without shoving in their fate. without being live. Well, you know, we all know the people who. Besides, there's gonna be a marathon runner and everybody else needs to be a marathon runner or their get bigger begin and they love it and they ve. like everybody else needs to be big into. We know those people right and that the peace
home is not that they are chasing down. Dreams are doing good things. The problem that then they want to shove. Their dream in everybody else's face see the problem is not that you all don't know who you are the problem. that you have an inkling who you are or you use I know who you are, but so many people's opinions have got between you and the thing that you want. There you're afraid to claim it. You need to have the courage to live whatever life. you want to live, and I know that not all of us have the same ideals I went down the word mobile. someone on here. I guarantee wrote down the word mother, someone some Hiroshima word teacher. Someone on here, wrote down the word, love or care compassion, you're your car, tribunal to the world matters to you. How? Well you raising a baby matters, you? How are you going out for your partner matters to you? That is your word and that's powerful, and, what's so incredible about community like this one is there's no wrong way to be
there's no wrong vision that you have for your life, but you have to have the courage to admit it to yourself right so so have a word when you hear me on my firm in the morning- and I am talking about my word for the year- my work for the year is the is the vision that I have of the future. My word for this year, is warrior warrior so eyesight. two- I did this exercise those coming into the end of twenty eighteen and I started think about who I wanted to be in twenty nineteen and I think you know me well enough to understand that like twenty team was a raise the year. Bananas crazier right I had written this book and as much as that was my six book. I had no comparison for what happened with grow Usher face absolutely no comparison. In fact, nobody has a comparison for what
but with that, but I wrote it and I even remember it's hilarious now. I remember it came out February six and I remembered January last year. So, a year ago, our being afraid that people are going to get mad, because I have to help my sex like that was. That was my biggest or never my wildest dreams it. I think so many people would read it not even a tenth of the people, but I definitely like oil. Nobody gets offended about the stories I tell that's where it was a year ago and then what came out- and it was like the snowball that rolled down the hill and kept going and kept going and at first it was very over because anytime life changes, its very overwhelming for us, but as it so to grow and keep going and keep going. What began as this excitement big came a thing of anxiety. Imagine if you will that just doing your thing. You have this vision for your life. What you're doing your thing and it it exploits
so far beyond your control. That you're just like standing, I can watching it happen in front of you and that What a lot of two thousand eighteen felt like for me and as someone that are so like you guys I mean hello, you see, I might I plan on my life or have the vision from future like I'm taking you through what I do so in all this, until I had no control over what was happening. Freaked me out and I went through a lot of eighteen, try figure out how to get back control from that place from piece of anxiety started I sort having a posture of anxiety and worry and feeling out of control and from that place outside negative forces can attack. You, like you, won't believe listen to me because you have your own version of this in your life when tired when you're exhausted, when you're hormonal, when you're anxious when you're depress when you're already experiencing a hard season or a negative season, and you
continue to put yourself out there to absorb whatever the world's got coming you, you open yourself up to get wrecked So if you are right now in a place of any of this in Vienna Negative, a hard season you need, battened down the hatches in hard season in a hard, so then you need to take care of you and I season. You need to focus on your health. Your me family and the hand that you haven't a day to get you from here to there hard season Unita keep showing up on me like ok world. What do you have to say because in my hard season and twenty eighteen, that's what I did? I kept showing up saying: ok, world what you have to say what the world had to say.
