"The goal is to get a win every day.
When you create a habit of winning it creates a snowball effect.
When you win enough weeks, you win the month.
When you win enough months, you win the year.
When you win enough years, you win your life.
Yes, ITS THAT EASY....WIN" @andyfrisella
I can not thank you enough for the inspiration that you have given me brother to go out and win every single day. The power list continues to transform my life daily. Worth every single penny....Really awesome quality btw...quite an upgrade from my last one 😂
Getting past mental barriers and changing things up as needed to keep moving forward today....mediacracy is not what I will allow! I will continue to succeed.

Best part of waking up in the morning is my meditation and my coffee. Makes the rest of my day go better too.
How about you? What is your morning routine that helps you?

Back to Big Jill and the peak of my addiction to bodybuilding and steroid use.
It's so interesting looking back.
I am so grateful I was able to make the change to win my happiness back.
" Maybe the journey isn't so much about becoming anything. Maybe it's about unbecoming everything that really isn't you, so you can be who you were meant to be in the first place." ▪️Sunday night, did you ever think you wouldn't look forward to Monday morning where you got to get up and go to work?
▪️Monday morning, did you ever wake up and think you wanted to call in sick because it was just too gorgeous a day to sit inside?
▪️Thursday night, did you ever think "If I can just get through Friday I will have made it to the weekend and I can smile again?"
▪️Did you ever realize you may not be working your dream job?
▪️Did you ever think retirement can't be close enough?
3-5 years. Can you imagine retiring in 3-5 years? Can you imagining being able to finally take that dream vacation? Can you imagine retiring your spouse from a job he/she hates? Can you imagining giving limitlessly to a organization close to your heart?
If you agree with even one of these things, why continue to be curious when you can find out the facts. Why not have a conversation and find out why I am doing Rodan + Fields when I already have an overflowing plate.
The pic cut me off again. Anyway it is my main objective. I don't want the be a sheep. I want to travel the road less traveled. Dare to be different. The different ones learn so much more on their journey throughout life. Not just the same regurgitated stuff they"masses" know. Which is mostly lies that harm you. I deeply care about everyone. The end. #normal#sheep#roadlesstravelled#beyou#beyourauthenticself#beyourownperson#conformity#conform#poison#lies DO NOT FOLLOW ANY FOOD GUIDELINES AS ALL SUCH ASSOCIATIONS HAVE BEEN PAID TO SHUT UP. BIG SECRET : meat causes cancer. More so then cigarettes!!!!Cancer society's love to say it doesn't. But they are lying. The media / gov lying to us? That happens twenty thousand times a day
Why do you turn against yourselves?
You feel sad, hurt, lost, afraid, far from love.
You feel unworthy, unnoticed, unacknowledged.
You feel angry sometimes.
But you cover it all up.
You put on a mask.
You pretend to be okay.
You are brilliant at pretending.
You play nice guy. Happy girl.
The one who knows.
The strong one. The confident one.
The blissed-out spiritual one.
The one who doesn't feel.
Why split yourself in two?
Why submerge half of yourself in darkness?
Why hold up an image of yourself?
To win love?
To be liked?
To protect yourself from the pain of rejection?
To control others' opinions of you?
Why do you care so much about being liked?
What does it matter, if the entire world rejects you,
yet you know you are real?
Why do you exhaust yourself, living a lie?
When did love become something you had to earn?
The mask stripped away,
the pretence finally at a end;
oh, humans, do you not see,
you are loved,
exactly as you are? - Jeff Foster
💙"You will always be too much of something for someone: too big, too loud, too soft, too edgy. If you round out your edges, you lose your edge. ~ Apologize for mistakes. Apologize for unintentionally hurting someone -profusely. But don't apologize for being who you are." 🙌🏻 BE UNAPOLOGETICALLY YOU! (Blue hair and all.) 👊🏻
This is "Cafe` Man" and he is one of my favirite older pieces, though he did not start off that way. Cafe` Man initially emerged as a mistake but quickly shifted into an experiment that turned into a great lesson.
He actually started out to be a bowl but since I was having a bad clay day, that ended up not working as planned. °
Armed with a little disappointment, a bit of frustration, and a lot of caffeine☕☕☕... I decided to throw everything in the book at this piece of clay.
I mixed coffee grounds into what was already paper clay. Then shaped it into a face adding lips💋, a nose 👃🏾 and stamped-in eyes 👁👁... (care to guess what I use to make the impressions)?
Then I grab my torch and gave it several once over's, allowing myself to be thoroughly amused by the popping and crackling of the coffee grounds on the surface of the clay. 🔥🔥🔥
Stunned it survived the bisque fire, the experimentation continued. Next I slathered on several generous coats of a new bronze stain I made that I was particularly fond of... my friend Janny gave me the recipe (it's a cone 6 stain).
After applying a clear glaze I loaded it into the kiln and hoped for the best but wasn't expecting much. What I got was this amazing, weathered and ancient-artifact-looking gift from the kiln-goddess!!!
The Journey of creating this piece reminded me that just because something starts out one way doesn't mean it might not turn out differently. And just because it didn't turn out the way you initially intended, doesn't mean it won't be so much greater, and better, and more rewarding... and that you won't completely adore it!!!!!
And even when you throw everything in the book at something... expecting it to be diminished, and damaged, and no good when you're done with it you have no idea how it will turn out on the other side of your destructive efforts. Diamonds & Pearls emerge through a lot of applied pressure!
We all have greatness inside of us no matter what our naysayers attempt to have us believe about ourselves.
Spirit of Elephant: Elephants have many qualities that resemble our own; to those who listen they have much to teach about developing a sense of well-being and belonging. Elephants are highly aware and convey emotions such as sadness, joy and anger. They cherish the relationships they have and use their trunks to console, caress, and soothe one another.
Elephants have been known to give their lives in order to save one of their own. They passionately care for their young, selflessly protect their elders and deeply mourn their dead. These are just a few of the traits that make them worthy of our respect and admiration.
Elephant Spirit teaches us that by honoring and loving one another we don't just survive, we thrive. Be respectful and honor your relationships. Be your authentic self. ~~Be Like Elephant.~~ #elephantsymbolism#elephantspirit#worldelephantday#indianaartist#animalartist#beyourauthenticself

Inspiring Your Authentic Self
"Don't rely on someone else for your happiness and self worth.
Only you can be responsible for that. If you can't love and
respect yourself - no one else will be able to make that
happen. Accept who you are - completely; the good and the bad - and make changes as YOU see fit - not because you think
someone else wants you to be different." -- Stacey Charter #beyourauthenticself#authenticself
