“The power is in you. The answer is in you. And you are the answer to all your searches: you are the goal. You are the answer. It’s never outside.” – Eckhart Tolle

How are you? How was your week? I hope great! I just wanted to touch base and send you all some love. We all share at least one thing in common – We have a goal that we want to achieve.

Yes, the goals will vary and the attitude towards the goals are different as well but one thing I have found to be a pattern and is always proven to be true is that individuals who come to DAMY, join a program, set a goal and have a “this is going to happen” attitude achieve their goals. They always do!

What I have also found to be a pattern is that when individuals come to DAMY, join a program, hum and haw about a goal, then email me to tell me all the ways they have failed in the past, all the things that are road blocks that hold them back, and that their life is harder than everyone else’s, they quit, make excuses and never meet their goal. Everyone sets up their individual end result with the attitude they come in on.

I know who is going to meet their goals and find great success and who is going to be excited for 1 to 2 weeks then either try to explain to me how hard their life is or just relish in self-pity by saying this is how their life goes… they never win. These individuals are self-made victims. They are victims of life, work, friends, family, their heredity, husband/wife, children and the list goes on.

Attitude is a Choice

Here is how I know that this attitude self-made. The individuals that have (time and time again) reached their goals all have the same “problems” in life as the individuals who don’t reach their goals. Everyone has his or her thing. I could sit here and list to you the awful things that some of these beautiful DAMY weight loss successes have been through and it would bring you to tears. But not one of them ever used their past or present circumstances as an excuse to quit and give up on their dreams.

So what have I learned from this? An amazing lesson has been cemented in me… we all can determine our outcome. It lies in the attitude we bring to the table every single day.

I, myself, have had and have to this day a far from “perfect life” but you will never find me focusing on the things that aren’t working because what I know is – what you focus on expands. I will always put my attention on the blessings in my life: hope, love, gratitude, and creating the best day each day that I can. This does not mean that “bad things” don’t happen in my life. I could write a million short stories of the things I have overcome or been through (and maybe someday I will to show that you have a choice on what you create for your life).

Take Action Now

Set your goal, know you are going to achieve it, trust in the process and do your very best each day. No matter what is going on around you just choose to put your attention on something great. Some days that thing may be as simple as being grateful to have food and water. Some days you may be just over-joyed with everything single thing in your life. There is a sway to life. Being in a grateful, “can do” attitude isn’t saying that every day is rainbows and butterflies (but you may get to this place). What it is about is placing your attention on what you want, doing the daily work it takes to get there AND (this is something I still work on everyday) enjoying the journey. You have to enjoy the journey. Do not waste your life away wanting the end results today. Some of the best moments in life are along the road to your goal. This I know from the bottom of my heart.

As I sit here and write this I am tearing up. I am just overcome with gratitude. See, today I dug out my old “goals” book I wrote in 2007. I won’t bore you with the details but that is the year I jumped in to my life by realizing I had a choice in what I wanted to create for my life. My goals seemed so huge then and now seem moderate to the person I am today…lol (If you don’t know, I dream BIG).

Anyway, all of my goals from then, in that book, have come to be. I created them. I am just so grateful. Even you, reading this have contributed to my biggest goal – To reach as many women as possible and tell them — you have a choice in what your life can look like, you are beautiful and you are loved.

So thank each and every one of you for being a part of my life, my dream… It only gets better.
