Success principles

Personal development is a HUGE part of my life, and I don't say that lightly. It has not always been this way! This has been a development in the last 2 years, since becoming a Beachbody coach. In fact, before than, I scoffed at the idea! I thought I was too good for "self help" books- that those were only for people who had real problems. Boy was I wrong! This is one of the EASIEST things to fit into your day, but also the easiest to avoid and let slip to the bottom of your list! Make sure to prioritize fueling your MIND as much as you prioritize fueling and taking care of your body!

Success leaves clues, and, lucky for us, the most successful people (whatever your definition of success) willingly share their habits and tips with us in the form of books, audiobooks, blogs, videos and podcasts! In fact, you can learn so much for FREE!

My favorite ways to absorb personal development and growth:
1- Podcasts- just download the podcast app and search for your favorite authors or topics.  My favorites right now are Chalene Johnson- The Chalene Show, Entreleadership, Lewis Howes- The School of Greatness, and the Charged Life with Brendon Burchard. These are all FREE!

2- Audiobooks - Download the audible app. These are what first got me into personal development because I wanted to make the most of my drive time. It only took me 10 minutes to get to work when I was working full time as a dentist, but I also came home at lunch so that added up to 40 minutes a day! I did that 4 days a week for the year I was working. That equals at least 138 HOURS of listening to POSITIVE, UPLIFTING, INSPIRING and USEFUL information! That's 138 hours that I could have just wasted away listening to music (which I do love and think there's a place for!) or listening to negative news (I don't like to fill my mind with any negative thoughts because what you think about, you become!). Can you imagine how positively influenced your life would be if you invested 138 hours into YOURSELF in a year?!? How much BETTER would you be- as a mom, wife, and friend?

3- Paper or electronic books. I have read electronically for years, but am really enjoying having paper books that I can highlight, start and dog ear to reference later and share with all of you! I'm currently reading The Success Principles by Jack Canfield and it is amazing- HIGHLY recommend it! It is deep, with a lot of takeaways to implement but it's ALL in there!

I was watching Brendon Burchard recently and he inspired me to make a video of my FAVORITE Success Principles! There are so many and my ideas and inspirations are constantly evolving, but check out my video on my top 3 impactful principles right now: Belief, Focusing on the Positive, and Gratitude!
