37. INSTASODE: WHY WE NEED TO GET UNCOMFORTABLE.

IMG_7985.PNG

In this episode I unpack a recent instagram post on seeking ways to get uncomfortable for growth and why it's so important to challenge ourselves in that way. More emotional resiliency, composure and fortitude, perseverance can be expected upon doing so. They are absolute requirements to live a in a high performance state and accomplish great things in our lives. 

Drop in to this 25 minute Instasode + let me know if it resonates with you!

xRx

________________________________________________________________________

⚡️ D I S C O M F O R T ⚡️

There’s something WAY more important  to me about this picture than the action of training.

.That look in my eyes, is me going 

toe to toe 

with an INCREDIBLE amount of discomfort. 

A challenger that is trying to get me to submit.

A test to see how bad I want it.

An OPPORTUNITY for me to discover a deeper sense of 

WHO I AM + WHAT IM CAPABLE OF.That continuous discovery is an addiction. 

I’ve NEVER been one to settle for “good”

I am a lover of EARNED EXCELLENCE.

Its because of that love, I am not only willing, but I SEEK challenges that force me to get 

Really

Really

Uncomfortable.

Challenges that all me to TRAIN MY MIND to find comfort within it them. 

It’s a provocative path that flirts with my INNER greatness every single day. .

It’s what drives me to keep adventuring through the wild, uncertain, challenging, yet incredible fortifying + heart-fulfilling journey that brings me closer to who I am + the achievement of continued excellence in my life.

Challenge can be viewed as a road block OR a stepping stone. 

Discomfort is something we can choose to avoid or we can CHOOSE to embrace. .

What’s crazy amazing as that the minute we DECIDE to embrace opportunities of discomfort we instantly level up the playing field against them.

Because when we decide that, no matter how difficult or uncomfortable those challenges may be, we’re MOVING TOWARDS THEM, we are also deciding that we are CAPABLE of succeeding them👊 And we ALWAYS are.

35. SOLOSODE: DROP THE HEAVY WEIGHT OF "PERFECTION" + 🚀LIFT OFF FROM THE 💰SUCCESSFUL ACTION OF GOING FOR IT👊

Alright badasses,

This episode is here to support the courage in your hearts to START that “thing” you’ve been wanting to start, or do that “thing” you’ve been wanting to do, but you’ve been hesitation waiting for things to be more “perfect” before you DECIDE to just GO FOR IT.

As someone who has constantly thrown myself into scenarios throughout my entire life, where things were not “perfectly” set up yet or I did not have a “perfect” amount of experience to really qualify myself as an “expert” in new territories of interest but WENT FOR IT ANYWAYS + succeeded great experiences from doing so; I feel like I have a strong voice to express that waiting for the “perfect timing or start” is like waiting to see a unicorn walk by you, it’s not going to happen. (sucks i know🦄)

There is NO such thing as the “perfect” time to start.

And here’s the thing, even if there is such a thing, you will NEVER know it until you start and look back at it but STARTING is a must and that means you need to be willing to experience some messy challenges (aka growth/learning process) in the initial, because the bottom line is: EVERY SUCCESSFUL PERSON +/BUSINESS DID in the beginning.

I am a lover of details + preparation and exceeding my expectations.

That said I am equally a lover of BEING REAL and calling myself out if I catch myself hesitating from starting or going for something I know in my heart, I am ready ENOUGH to start/go for it.

If these words hit your heart, then you will LOVE this encouraging episode to hit that green button and GO for that thing you’ve been hesitating to start or go towards.

Love you guys, believe in yourSelf + your vision.

One life baby, let’s do this!

30: DANA CLAUDAT: CREATING YOUR LUCK, DESIGNING YOUR SPACE + LIFE WITH NO LIMITS & LIVING FROM YOUR HIGHEST, CREATIVE-SELF.

IMG_5879.PNG

Dana Claudat is a modern Feng Shui master, a Stanford- educated art historian with a serious passion for Modern & Contemporary art. To put it simply: Curating is in her DNA.  

I felt an alignment to Dana's incredible energy upon discovering her radiant, always positive INSTAGRAM PROFILE  and her renowned blog, THE TAO OF DANA  but I after having this ELEVATING conversation with this talented, inspiring woman, I can honestly say that I LOVE Dana's mental framework and what she puts out into this world through her original approach to Feng Shui . 

Here's my favorite part: She's the REAL thing.  A pragmatic creative who originates from Jersey and keeps the essence of that realness alive in her approach to Feng Shui. Sorry no unicorns,  magical promises and do not expect her to be your guru... She is a creative support system to those who apply her specialized methods of Feng Shui into their sacred spaces that invites more expansive, harmonized energy into these spaces. But it doesn't stop there. Through the ripple effects of Dana's Feng Shui method, this renewed, harmonized energy has positively impacted the entire lives of those she works with too, proving that, as Dana puts it,

"Your space reflects your life and your life reflects your space."

She is woman who does NOT believe in luck or limitations, which immediately makes her principles and practice of Feng Shui SO unique.  A definite deviation from the majority of Feng Shui practices out there. A Feng Shui Maverick if you will and a total a path CREATOR- both making her my kind of girl.

Im giving it to you STRAIGHT: Since our conversation and starting her CASH CAMP, an 8 week online, collaborative, space designing course that harmonizes the energy in our sacred spaces to build not just in our financial status but invites more WEALTH INTO OUR ENTIRE LIVES; I have felt a serious shift- INTERNALLY + EXTERNALLY. 

A shift that feels SO good, so ALIGNED with my highest Self and has me sooo excited about what is to come this Fall as I get deeper into the camp, designing more shifts with intentions that support my ability to achieve what I envision for my life.   I am a firm believer that our external is a reflection of our internal so it's no surprise when I say I LOVE that Dana's Feng Shui practice lives in that same philosophy.  

That said, I am SO excited for you all to drop in to our conversation in this new BlackBeltBeauty Radio episode to get to know this amazing woman, how she arrived to this incredible place with her Feng Shui practice and without even intending to, turning her passion and practice of into a thriving business. A business that is genuinely supporting so many people around the world to be thriving in their own lives. I have NO doubt you are going to feel SO inspired to start Feng Shui'ing your space and LIFE with Dana once you listen to this energizing conversation. 

In this episode you will learn: 

  • Dana's unique approach to the art of Feng Shui- why it's so different from majority of practices and principles of Feng Shui that exist. 
  • Her journey to discover Feng Shui
  • Tuning out of external "healers" and Tuning into herSelf while implementing Feng Shui in her life. 
  • The birth of the "Wellness" industry and how it effected her Feng Shui practice 
  • Designing space with Intention, regardless of how new or big the space is
  • Science backed effects of personal energy towards our environment
  • How our inner state reflects our outer state
  • The meaning of Feng Shui and the various practices and schools 
  • What ultimately influenced Dana's unique approach to Feng Shui and why
  • Science based Feng Shui
  • The power of CREATIVITY in your home
  • Dana's view on BALANCE and creating BALANCED energy in our space to align with our unique needs for it
  • Collaborative designing- What her FENG SHUI CAMPS ( Money, Love + Decluttering) are all about and how they have successful impacted those in it (including herself because she does it with everyone) in desired ways
  • Her experience at Stanford studying art history and how it influenced her to NOT taken the paved path, the most commonly taken road and instead, be a path creator, designing it from her unique desires, passion, interests and intentions
  • The VALUE of ADVERSITY and the power of listening to your AUTHENTIC SELF
  • Disregarding "timelines"  + focusing on your desires, passions + intentions 
  • One of my personal experiences from shifting energy in my space and what it helped me MANIFEST a desire into my life
  • First steps to harmonizing your space with Dana's Feng Shui method
  • How Self talk effects your internal + external environment 
  • Dana's new school of Feng Shui- why she started it and what it's all about

"Art and aesthetics are a high frequency of communication" Dana Claudat. 

 

I would LOVE to know what you think and FEEL from listening to our conversation and if you reading this before 9/10 then you have time to sign up for Dana's CASH CAMP HERE and start taking INSPIRED ACTION towards building the wealth you desire for your life.

29: SOLOSODE: PROGRESS: HOW TO SHIFT WITH THE CHANGE OF SEASONS FOR INTERNAL + EXTERNAL PROGRESSION... AKA SUCCESS👊

Fall is HERE + so the a shift of energy that comes with it. Rather than waiting for the New Year to focus on shifting our ways to induce more progress in all areas of life: relationships, health, finances, business; I'm sharing thought ideas + practicable ways to lean into those shifts NOW aligned with FALL's arrival.. t's not only being proactive to achieve our goals but it's making the positive effects & results LONG STANDING. Why wait for the New Year to kick ass + get ahead when we can start NOW?! In this new episode I suggest ideas that support that objective so that when 2019 arrives, we are way ahead of the game and on target to accomplishing what we aim to achieve withIN + OUT.

One of my primary focuses when reaching for PROGRESS is looking at the Intangibles - WHO I need to BE in order to generate the tangibles I desire- What I also frame as "external success."

In this episode I share 1 small shift to my morning routine (I kinda hate the word but can't think of a better one to describe it appropriately yet) that has made a powerful impact on my ability to focus and be more effective with my output (working SMARTER not HARDER). I believe that it may inspire you to create your own personal shift that will give you similar results.

IMG_5160.PNG

Dr. Molly Maloof is taking on the world of medicine with the vision of shifting its primary focus from "curing illness" to optimizing health. In other words expanding our healthspan + supporting our a higher, overall performance in life.  Based in San Fransisco, CA; Molly is a concierge medical doctor with a clients (mostly entrepreneurs, investors + high level executives) that are focused on not just feeling better in their lives but actually BECOMING better versions of themselves with full trust in Molly's unique, extensive approach to get them there.  

Molly's approach aims it's focus on cellular health and utilizes a variety of comprehensive testing of clinical chemistry, metabolomics, microbiome, genetics, & biometrics (e.g. heart rate variability & continuous glucose monitoring) to access and generate true health markers of her clients for her to strategize optimal needs to resolve issues and extend their healthspan. 

In addition to Molly's personalized medical practice, she is the head of Medical Science at Sano Intelligence in San Fransisco and is an entrepreneur that has a passion for beauty (love that so much). Molly has taken that passion and put into into the development a few essential, multi-tasking, healthy beauty products that will help to simplify skin care regimens with a scientific approach to their effectiveness- for both men and women.  The list continues to Molly's passion-fueled businesses with the the launch her new podcast next month "Dr. Molly Talks"- a podcast I cannot wait to indulge in and learn more from this incredible woman who is on the leading edge of health care and medicine. 

I loved this conversation with Molly for so many reasons aside from gaining more knowledge on optimizing health through her unique voice. It was a fun, intimate conversation that extended past the clinical aspects of healthcare and touched on the lifestyle approach to healthcare.

There's a lot to look forward to that Molly is passionately working to create that will be of great service to this world so I'm excited to introduce her to you through our conversation. I have NO doubt she will inspire you to start focusing on ways to optimize your healthspan and feel connected to the value (your WHY) in doing so.

27: SOLOSODE: Living through the "messy" on the road to success- SHAMELESSLY.

IMG_4899.PNG

It's not easy to live through the challenges that arise on our paths to GOING FOR IT in our lives. Putting ourselves "out there" in the world and especially in ways that require a lot of "learning as you go" can be straight up scary and offer some "messy" moments in the process. It most definitely can make even some of the most confident of people generate insecure moments in the process but living through them is truly is the ONLY way to grow, create and ultimately allow us to accomplish what we're aiming for on the other end of them. 

This Solosode is all about a personal moment experiencing some emotions of raw and very real Insecurity. It was so powerful until I realized exactly what was happening by OBSERVING mySelf and stopped JUDGING mySelf.  Once I came to that understanding, I was able to push past my insecure emotions with a conquered state of mind that reminded me of this TRUTH:

THIS IS JUST A PART OF THE PROCESS + THERES NO WAY AROUND IT TO CREATE WHAT YOU DESIRE. Personally, its the road I WANT to take albeit challenging. I want NO short cuts or hand outs because I value my process as a HUGE part of the reward in all that I am creating.

Being real with ourselves while honoring our Process is one of the greatest tools that supports both internal + external success in life.  Sometimes the path to advancing confidence is by feeling INSECURE. I love clever irony. 

My intention behind creating this bite size episode is to support your process of GOING FOR IT by keeping it SO real with you all and putting moments of my creative process like this out there for you while still IN the process of growing this all where I envision it to go- shamelessly. Not waiting to expose this when Im clear + "safe" at the point of accomplishing my vision of success.  My hope is that it inspires you to to that "thing" you've been wanting to do but have felt insecure about trying or reaching for because you don't want to fail, be denied or get embarrassed along the way.

We only learn what we are capable of when we are put in uncomfortable scenarios and discover who we are within the process of getting through them.  

Forget "perfect" - there's no such thing on the road to real success; "messy" is bound to happen + there is VALUE in living through the discomfort of those moments when they show up.

One of my favorite quotes EVER sums it up perfectly:

"IF YOU STUMBLE, MAKE IT PART OF THE DANCE" 

My edit is "WHEN" vs IF because it is a GIVEN that you will. 

Be PROUD that you're putting effort (or soon will be) towards something you desire, believe in and care about, whatever that might for you. 

There's so much power in owning and appreciating your efforts.

Better "oops" than "what if?"

Jenn Glysson is a seriously BADASS private trainer based in LA and owner of one of the dopest gyms in LA: The Body Los Angeles. Jenn is known for her unique ability to train her clients in ways that lend to creating a sexy, strong and CAPABLE aesthetic.

One of the best parts about training with Jenn is the encouraging and committed energy she offers her clients while training them. She's ALL IN and passionate about HER performance as a trainer which is easily felt and makes her stand out greatly in the fitness industry... aside from HER incredible body that validates her training in OBVIOUS form.

Jenn's mental framework and passion towards her style of training is very empowering and stems from her highly active upbringing as an athlete. She is SO innovative and dynamic but has the talent to make her training methods available to EVERYONE who is willing to try, not just athletes. 

One thing that I LOVE about Jenn is that she keeps SO real and she believes that everyone can have a strong, beautiful and sexy body if they COMMIT & DO THE WORK.

I back that idea up 100%. 

In this fun conversation we discuss:

  • Jenn's training background
  • Her various modalities of training
  • The truth behind Instagram bodies
  • The reality of a BULKY body
  • Time constraints on body goals
  • Focusing on performance NOT numbers to make REAL gains
  • The reality of spot reduction 
  • Jenn's childhood as an athlete 
  • Injuries and body image 
  • Women in the weight room, breaking past the discomfort within it
  • Her Instagram training posts: Keeping it simple but effective 
  • Working out during pregnancy
  • Steps to get back into training post pregnancy 
  • Being HONEST with yourself 
  • The difference between TRAINING & WORKING OUT
  • Training for LIFE

ORIGINAL @blackbeltbeauty 💋 POST:

 

__________THE ONE THING..._______________

I get asked all the time “what do you do?” in reference to my activity, workout, diet etc.. 

I know the desired answer is ONE specific thing- one answer that will “solve” an issue, simplify the process + offer a straight pathway to a desired result. 

Basically an EASY answer. 

Unfortunately my answer is FAR from easy.

I don’t do “one thing” I do A LIFESTYLE that consistence of MULTITUDE of modalities that constantly evolves with my personal evolution (age, interests, goals).

.What I can offer in ONE word, ONE method + ONE PROVEN ACTION that inevitably demands effective results is:

C O N S I S T E N C Y

Consistency also happens to be the most difficult part for many to incorporate into their goal oriented process because it initially requires real discipline before habits are crystallized + no longer a thought of “should or should not”, “want or don’t want”;they just become a part of YOU. 

.What I can say in support of generating consistency in your process is this:

When LOVE/PASSION is driving the PURPOSE- CONSISTENCY becomes A LOT easier to stay disciplined, form new habits + stay the course with ZERO interest in straying from it. You’ll do what ever it takes to stay connected to your goals/vision/desires/standards because they are too important not to. 

What we value, we place attention + energy towards. Hard stop.

Personally, I ❤️ having STANDARDS OF EXCELLENCE for myself that keep me chasing that FEEL great-PERFORM great carrot in my Life. 

It never gets tired.

The better I feel in my life, the better of an EXPERIENCE I can be to everyone I connect with in my Life. WIN WIN👊

24: THE SUPERFOOD EVERY SINGLE HUMAN'S HEALTH CAN BENEFIT FROM.

IMG_2947.JPG

"Superfood" is a term that we are starting to hear a lot more of these days and algae is most definitely deserving of that title. This is the first podcast episode of its kind, where I get down with the founder of a nutrition brand that I am SUPER passionate about because of the LEGIT science behind the benefits of algae + my own validation towards it anecdotally. 

Catharine Arnston is the Founder + CEO of Energy Bits, an superior quality algae brand that consists of chlorella + spirulina tablets.  Energy Bits is one of safest + purest algae brands on the market (if not The most). 

The health benefits of CLEAN algae consumption are unarguable.  There is an abundance of research that proves how greatly beneficial adding algae to our diets can be.  I dig deep with Catharine to unpack the Science backed health benefits of algae in this episode. Some conversation highlights we discuss are:

  • Why algae is healthy for us
  • How algae can be especially great for Vegans, Vegetarians AND diets with heavy meat consumption. 
  • Why the quality of algae makes a major difference (clue: LEAD should not be a part of our diets)
  • How algae consumption supports longevity
  • The importance of consuming the FULL spectrum (essential + non essential) of Amino Acids 
  • The incredible similarities between Chlorophyll + our hemoglobin
  • Consuming Algae on a Ketogenic diet 
  • Why Algae is endorsed by NASA, the United Nations and Carnegie Institute as the most nutrient-dense food in the world.

I hope you enjoy this episode that we created to EMPOWER you with knowledge + tools that can support your optimal health/life performance. 

If you love it, let me know in your IG stories, comments- I love hearing from you!
