Go For IT...

We all have excuses for why we don’t shine. For why we don’t show up fully as our beautiful, magical, glorious, radiant, divine Selves. There is too much talent going to waste. If you are wondering if you are needed this is your wake up call. You are here, that means we need you. Mayaam Hasnaa

Excuses and justifications are most times fear. Fear of failure or fear of success.

The "what if's" come in and plays havoc with our brains if we are not grounded in who we are.

Ask around those who are living their dreams and their best lives - they let go of excuses and justifications, they take responsibility for where they are, the learn the lessons and walk the talk.

There is always a reason not to do something, not to start something, not to take that risk. Many times they all seem like pretty valid reasons. How does the excuses, reasons and rationale given to stay stuck where you are compare to the feeling you get from living your best life? You will never know if you don't take that step.

What's the worst that can happen? You end up exactly where you started!


Show up

Take that Risk

Take Responsibility

you will thank yourself when you do.
