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.

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.
Never settling. .
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👊
