Great love and great achievements involve great risk. -Nepalese saying
Risk and fear of failure is something that I personally deal with everyday. But then again everyone deals with it everyday in some way or another. We all get out of bed, we all use cars or some form of transportation that could be dangerous. We all use stairs, what if we slipped and fell? So what…we do these things anyway. Because the risk is nothing compared to the reward. And for most of us the reward is basic life. But then when it comes to things like pursing our dreams, we chicken out! Why is this?
Am I playing it safe? What leaps of faith have I taken recently? Is sitting on the couch and flipping the channels doing anything for me? What is one thing I could do today to move an inch closer to my wildest dreams? Am I scared of failure and/or success? Why is that?
I know that for me, I am scared of success and failure. I don’t want to let people down but I also don’t want people to talk about me, I don’t like being the center of attention (good OR bad.) If you’re living life under the radar are you really living? Are you doing anything to really help anyone? You are definitely not helping yourself! Risk is hard, trust me I know. We’ve all been through it. But when it all is said and done and you’re at the end of your life looking back, you’ll find out that not taking risks was actually much more of a risk! If you don’t pursue your dreams think of all the people you could have impacted but didn’t because you were too scared to take that risk! I believe that is riskier than taking a leap of faith.
Don’t let that be you. Live with love, take those leaps of faith! Risk, grow, dream, learn, LOVE! It is worth it! Everything will work out, I pinky promise! 🙂
So many people think that to be healthy you have to spend a lot of time or money to be healthy. That is simply just not the case! Today will be my first ‘Fun Friday’ post (every Friday I’ll post links to videos or other websites or something else fun and inspiring to start your weekend off right!) I hope these videos can teach you and inspire you to live a healthier life so you can be happier as well. And the best part is all of these videos are short and free so it goes to show that being healthy doesn’t have to be time-consuming or expensive!
I love this video because for the last week or so this is exactly what I’ve been doing every morning for breakfast! I love doing smoothies with fruit, soy milk, a little flax meal and Spirutein or Fruitein packets for vitamins, energy and protein. I have seriously noticed a HUGE difference in my energy levels, not to mention my weight, but in this case energy and nutrition were my first priorities with this one.
Of course I love Kandee Johnson so I have to put this up! I haven’t tried the hempshake but my best friend just ordered it so I will be trying it soon and I’ve done research on it and it is pretty nutritious and has a lot of good reviews. Also I just think Kandee is inspiring all around so I encourage you to watch her other videos too!
I love this video from pro-volleyball player & mom Gabby Reece! She has a lot of good healthy eating tips and make sure you watch till the end of the video because the last thing she says is a huge tip for healthy eating!
I LOVE Tara Stiles yoga videos! She also has a lot of videos on other healthy things so definitely check those out. She is very right when she says that yoga can help you lose weight, it has been helping me for the last few weeks and after this video you WILL be sore. Especially if you do a couple of her other yoga videos after it which I recommend you do to make a longer workout!
I also love Pilates in addition to yoga! Both will give you a great toning workout and make you feel so wonderful after. I really like Pop Pilates because she is very upbeat and really good at putting together a good workout that will help you see results! The best part is all of her workouts are under 10 minutes a piece and you will really feel them the next day!
I hope these videos will help you get healthier and become the best you possible!
Remember: Being healthy and happy first starts with your thoughts! So think positive, be as happy and grateful as you can for the many blessings you already have in your life and I promise you more will come and things will get better! Thinking positive is free and the best thing you could do for your health and happiness!
