You know when someone asks how your day was and you reply “long” or “never ending” or “hard”, it really does seem to explain the day? I think Henry Ford said it best: “whether you think you can, or think you can’t, you are right”. This quote reverberates so much truth in the health world. You could easily change it to: whether you feel like you have energy, time in the day, love etc, or you don’t, you are right. We have an incredible amount of power to control our day, how we feel and our circumstances. We cannot control the people around us but we have all the power to change how we feel and how we react. This is true for every aspect of our lives, including our physical health. For the past 3 weeks I have been dealing with a horrendous autoimmune flare, and trust me, after years of this battle it is really easy to get down on myself and to start feeling badly about my body. It is so easy to go down that dark rabbit hole and think about all the things I maybe didn’t stick to my regimen and brought this on myself.
A little over a year ago, by some divine miracle, I was listening to a podcast by Miracle Morning’s Hal Elrod. He happened to be interviewing the most incredible woman. During the show’s introduction Hal talked a little bit about this woman’s past. Her mother died when she was 16 years old and about 2 months later she found out she was pregnant. This woman, it seemed, had the world turn it’s back. I was sitting in my car feeling badly for this woman, who seemingly had nothing at rock bottom. I was very wrong to underestimate the power of a strong woman. Tonya knew that there was more that life had to offer her and there was more than enough good in the world to go around, and she DESERVED IT! I reached out to her personally and hired her to coach me through her mindset program. For years I had been conditioned to think that there wasn’t enough money, love, power, esteem (you name it) to go around, and certainly not enough for me. I was wrong. The vocabulary I was using was hurtful and damaging to myself! I was saying things to myself that I would never admit outloud and would punch someone in the face if I ever heard them said out loud about any of my children or loved ones. With Tonya’s help, I’ve been able to build a business, coach others in health, and have started writing a book to reach the masses. Her help, her love, and her guidance has forever changed the way I view myself, and the world around me.
Even with this current flare, because of her guiding support, I have been able to say sweet things to myself and protect my precious body that is working so hard to get and keep me healthy! I have had flares and attacks but no set backs. There is only room for improvement and growth on my journey and it is because of Tonya’s work that I can say that. Now, you might be asking yourself…what is the point of all of this Sharissa?…DRUM ROLL PLEASE!!!
Tonya has graced us all with her lessons, courage and strength in the form of a BOOK!!! Now every single one of us can have her encouragement by our bedside. I have had the privilege of reading The Mindset Switch (several times I must admit) and working through the workbook. This is something that takes practice and isn’t perfected overnight. She accounted for that as well…She successfully crafted a book that helps you discover and adjust your mindset about life in a way that feels like you are having a conversation with your best friend over a glass of wine. Not only that but she provided a framework to actually do the WORK! I have ready a great deal of books in my lifetime and none compare to the actionable book that has been written for you now. I am beyond excited for you to get your hands on it!
Remember Hal Elrod from the Miracle Morning? He felt so strongly about The Mindset Switch that he actually wrote the forward! Do not waste even one more minute on a vocabulary that is limiting your potential in life. Go get your copy of the book now and start living the life you were meant to live!
As always, my hope is to continue to shed light on your potential life and I am here to guide you if you need anything. Please feel free to email me or schedule your free 15 minute call with me!
