The biggest factor to my health was focusing on MYSELF over what everybody else was doing or saying. (It’s easier said than done.) lol
The more I focused on my goals and wins day in and day out the EASIER it was to enjoy my journey.
I learned very quickly not everyone agrees with my healthy habits. And I heard a lot of opinions on what I was doing. Lol
So if you’re losing weight or toning up and you’re noticing rude comments from friends or family. Know that it’s normal. It sucks lol but normal... keep doing what you’re doing and before you know it you’ll inspire others to take their health seriously as well. 👊🏼 Photo credit: @_mallardphotography_#womenwarriorsofthedietdoc#focusonyou
Don't believe you crave the approval of others? After reading through these 10 signs, your perspective might change upon the realisation that this does in fact apply to you.
Think about a time when someone has asked for your opinion on a subject/topic, do you feel anxious about how to respond? After formulating a response, do you start to question it because you're afraid they won't value it or agree with it?
Do you feel less valued when you don't get recognition for your contribution/efforts? Is your internal motivation only driven by recognition and praise from others? ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Comparing yourself to others screams YOU HAVE INSECURITY ISSUES. You crave the approval of others for your successes or help them understand the excuses for your failures. Who gives a shit what someone else may have or does not have! Most of what people compare is materialistic anyway. That can all be taken away very quickly. Just remember that we are all at different stages of our lives and running our own race. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
If you like to gossip and share secrets; you crave the approval and attention of others. You feel like your entitled and part of an inner circle. This may stem from your childhood where gossip/secrets were shared about you (so you do it to others now to prevent it happening again). Well guess what? It will have the reverse affect. Your relationships will suffer because others respect for you will diminish and they will no longer trust and confide in you. Consequently, left feeling isolated by being left out of conversations and being excluded from activities/events.
So if any of this applies to you let us know in the comments below how we can help to remove that 'craving of approval from others.

Stay humble but don’t take your eyes off your dreams 🌠 like if you agree!
Ladies (or men), can you reflect on what the craziest thing is you’ve ever done? The thing that was scary but somehow you did it anyway.. share below!👇🏻
>>Something I practice, when fear bubbles (when I am on the brink of expanding into something more), is a remind myself of something I ALREADY have done that was scary or challenging for me.
>>This practice instantly shifts me and helps me feel like I CAN take on the next challenge!
>>Ps. something you've done "scary or hard" doesn't have to be leaping out of a plane (although it could!) - it can actually even be setting boundaries with people you love, or finding the courage to break up with someone who you knew wasn't the one, or quitting your corporate career! Anything counts as it is all relative!
>>I remind myself how terrified I felt when I thought I couldn't overcome my past addiction- it reminds that I can now conquer the freakin' world!🙌🏻💫
Share below 😘👇🏻
Slow progress isn’t no progress. Progress is about moving toward what WILL be!! The best progress is slow, and not always steady. Progress, healing, goal attainment... none of it is linear. The most important thing is your desire to keep moving forward. Maintain awareness of how far you’ve come, rather than how far you have left to go.

Grand Rising Family. Today’s message is to FOCUS ON YOURSELF. Most of the time it’s so easy to get caught up with the things that are going on around us we tend to overlook the main focus point and that’s self. We strive to want better for our selves but tend to waste so much of our own time. To actually be successful we have to take the time to go within and focus on what we need to improve in order to get where we need to go. The main thing spirit wants us to work on is making time for SELF CARE. This simply means being kind to yourself, minimizing negative self-talk and make more room for positive self awareness . There’s nothing wrong with wanting to become a better YOU, but you have to approach it from a place of growth and positivity. In order to experience something you’ve never felt before you have to do something YOU HAVE NEVER DONE. Simple. This even goes to picking and choosing the people in our lives as they have a big effect on the quality of our lives. Birds 🦅 of a feather flock together. Always have and always will. Lastly, Stop Neglecting Yourself! You are a priority! This is not being selfish. But this is you putting time into you as you put time into others. You are all you need to make you happy. Stop allowing your personal power to be in the steering wheel of others. Progress leads to fulfillment. Small progress is better than none. Sending peace,love, and blessings. -TheGolden Ki.✨🔑👑

When I was in 1st grade, I was held back because I had a hard time reading. It's not that I couldn't read, but I was slow and I'd get held up on words for a minute. Funny thing is...I still get held up on words. Yet, and I'm going to celebrate myself for a second here, I'm quite the wordsmith. 👏 .
Words pack so much power. I think, subconsciously, I've always known this. Words are not meant to be passed on so quickly, like my 1st grade teacher may have believed. 🙌 .
I enjoy writing poetry. Rhyming comes easily and naturally to me. But I also enjoy dissecting words and what they mean to ME...regardless of if good ol' Webster would agree. 😉 .
CREATE for example. I think this word holds so much more power than Webster gives it credit for. This is my personal definition for "cre-ate". What do you think? Drop a ❤ if this post inspired you!
