63. EMILY HAYDEN: FUELED BY ADVERSITY, BEING RELENTLESS, PURSING A LIFE OF EXCELLENCE

IMG_6655.PNG

Emily Hayden is A lot of inspiring things. 

  • She is Fitness + lifestyle influencer 

  • An IFBB Bikini Pro competitor

  • A YouTube Vlogger 

  • A Podcast host to her show of Evolve with Emily 

  • An online trainer, coach + fitness model 

And above all, she is a relentless pursuer in creating a Life of Excellence.


I first discovered Emily on my friend Lisa Bilyeu’s Woman of Impact show and was immediately drawn a few things about Emily while listening to her talk on Lisa’s panel. For one, I was inspired by the powerful story of how she climbed out of some serious childhood adversity into becoming the successful entrepreneur she is today. I was equally inspired by the authenticity I felt in her presence as she shared her empowered mental framework that supported her to get through all of her adversity’s and become the resilient woman she is on a mission to support others to create a life of excellence.


I want to share a quote I found from her that I feel really touches on the power of her mindset:
There is no “end” for me. Every time I reach a goal, I start my journey towards a new goal. 99% of life is in the “journey” stage. 1% is the time when the goal is achieved, then you start back at 0 towards the new goal. That’s why I believe it’s so important to enjoy the journey and enjoy the process every step of the way.

Emily Hayden is MY kinda girl all the way. She’s that ALL IN, I can do better, Appreciate the ENTIRE process kinda girl who is creating her life from a place of pure passion, faith + authenticity.  

Some powerful takeaways from this episode are:

  • Turning adversities into fuel to succeed

  • Embracing life’s seasons; how to ride the hard ones out with strength 

  • Transferring wins the gym into wins in business 

  • Turning your passions into your enterprise 

  • Why staying authentic in your pursuits breeds great success in the long game

  • The power of discipline and how to utilize it for success

  • Giving yourself the chance to succeed by NOT being afraid to fail 

  • Turning up your mental resilience and taking the quit out of you

  • Pursuing a life of excellence 


I am so excited to share this conversation with all of you because I have NO doubt it will leave you feeling mentally elevated to go after or KEEP pursuing what it is you truly want to create in your life, starting with WHO you are- it will service the inspirational fuel that takes the QUIT out of you. 

Enjoy!

31. SOLOSODE: DISCOVERING YOUR WHY, GETTING CLEAR + MAKING IT HAPPEN.

IMG_6326.PNG

Anyone can want. Resiliency to ACHIEVE is limited to those who rely on THIS powerful tool:

YOUR WHY FACTOR. 

It's not just a theory, it's a proven fact that when we desire something for our lives and have GREAT PURPOSE (aka a STRONG WHY) behind it, we are better able to stay committed to the pursuit of it actualizing it despite the challenges and adversities that rise up along the way. 

In this new Solosode I replay a recent BlackBeltBeauty instagram post that blends perfectly with the focus of this episode and tease out the benefits of: discovering your WHY, getting clear on your goals/vision and implementing both of those intangibles into your pursuit to actualizing iT into your life- whatever IT may be.

The goal behind this episode is to help you connect with your purpose behind any + all things that you desire for your life and utilizing the power that comes with that connection to get you from WANTING to MAKING IT HAPPEN.

22: INSTASODE: SUCCESS IN MOTION

IMG_1572.PNG

This Instasode was inspired from this recent BlackBeltBeauty Instagram post about honoring your efforts with support on the days when your "best" was showing up and trying.

It's easy to dismiss those efforts because they did not produce outstanding outcomes or perhaps did not give you the exact outcome that you envisioned but those efforts are just as important as the "home run" days because they are literally the "threads that pull the entire look together" by way of CONSISTENCY.

I dig deeper into the concept of supporting yourself on those days and the powerful energy it will support you back with as a result.  

I hope this Instasode drops into your life at the perfect time to remind you to stay on your team by encouraging and acknowledging all of your efforts regardless of how much more you want to produce and gain. We always want more. How we feel on the way to generating  "More" for our lives is of equal importance as gaining it when you believe that the journey IS the reward. 

ORIGINAL POST:

F L O W

There’s some days when I enter training feeling low in energy or straight up unmotivated. But regardless of how I feel stepping into it, I know that while it’s going down Im going to ask myself to give it my best effort- no matter what.

.

And here’s the thing: 

this idea of “best” is not a straight line, it’s not static- it, like me, is constantly shifting its state. Some days my best is fucking powerful, it produces an amazing feeling + results. And then there’s those other days when my best is simply great effort that gets me through the motions + is an act of consistency. .

Honoring the daily shift not just in your physical performance but in any + ALL aspects in your life where performance is required of you, is such a crucial tool to advance your best. 

I don’t think there is ANY stronger form of a resistance that can act as a road block to growing our best selves + lives than that which we can mentally place upon ourselves. .

Being on YOUR team means backing yourself up with encouragement. It means honoring the moving waves we ride in all areas of our lives WITHOUT being judgmental on ourselves in the process.

I LOVE to challenge myself + excuses are actions I choose not to allow in my life on any front.  Ever.

But that’s even more reason why I know it’s so important to respect the days where showing up is the best I got to give that day. Understanding  it’s a temporary moment + not a dictator of my ultimate “success” It breathes space in my mind so that I can ask myself to keep reaching for better. And for me personally, it’s that continual reach that IS real success. 

Never giving up. 

Backing down. 

Never settling. .

The TAKEAWAY:

Respecting the days that are messy or tired in any area of life by not being hard on yourself for it, is like a fucking magic trick that doesn’t allow those days to STICK to you, to slow you down + get in the way to whatever it is you aim to accomplish. 

No, instead when you show yourself support by honoring those days but not allowing them to define you, you are LITERALLY WINNING all the way to accomplishing what you’re aiming for.

It’s what I call:

SUCCESS IN MOTION👊

BDAY SOLOSODE PIC .PNG

A U T H E N T I C I T Y .

.There is nothing more provocative to me than the idea of living as many days as I possibly can being PRESENT + to be living from the expression of my most AUTHENTIC SELF.

✨That is my personal interpretation of TRUE SUCCESS in life.✨

.And on the note of “Life” this new #BlackBeltBeautyRadio Solosode was inspired  by the shift into a new year of my life via my #birthday last week.

.In this new podcast episode I share my perspective on “age”, doing the “smart thing” in life + why it’s so powerful to live from your most authentic self- No matter what.👊
