Are you a conqueror or conquistador?

Happy Thursday peeps! I know it’s been a few weeks since you’ve heard from me.  Having 5 kids means the month of May is extremely busy for me.  From wrapping up the end of the school year to birthdays and a demanding 9 to 5, your girl has been busy.

Nonetheless, I have a word that I would like to share.  With me wearing so many hats and having so many responsibilities, it is easy to be overwhelmed and feel helpless.  Sometimes, I think that life would be much easier if my dreams weren’t so big, but then I think, “what fun would that be?”

The easy thing to do is to quit, give up, tap out, and walk away.  That’s also how you stay stuck and settle for where you are right now.

Are you a conqueror (winner) or conquistador (loser)?  Do you give up at the first sign of “hard”? Do you allow your challenges to get you down and make you feel defeated?

If you’ve answered yes to any of those questions, it’ time for an attitude adjustment.  It’s time for you to train your mind to think on a different level.  Train yourself to replace every negative thought with a positive punch.  Your success depends on it.  Your goals and dreams will not work unless you do and it’s going to take a fight, it won’t be easy.

Whenever I think about giving up, taking the easy way out and settling for “normal”, I remind myself why I do this; it’s because I get to help others accomplish their goals and live their dreams.  I get to show my children what going after what you want looks like even when times get tough, you don’t give in you stand in and fight for what you want.

if you’ve been feeling down, depressed, overwhelmed, helpless, hopeless, or just down right TIRED, that’s when you dust your shoulders off, face your challenges head on and refuse to give in.  Don’t throw in the towel, use it to wipe your sweat off and keep fighting.  Finances in shambles? FIGHT!  Career not going the way you want? FIGHT!  Relationship issues got you down? FIGHT! Fight for your victory, fight your way to finish line.  NO MATTER WHAT, YOU ARE A CONQUEROR!

Don't throw in the towel, use it to wipe your sweat off and keep fighting.

 
I just wanted to drop in and share this because I too struggle on a daily to fight but my will to conquer my dreams is bigger than my will to give in.  I’m fighting and I will stand with you as you fight.  WE GOT THIS!  You can get that degree you’re working on.  You will get that awesome job that you’re not qualified for.  That career change you want to make will happen.  Your financial situation will improve.  You gotta be willing to put in the work and fight for what you want.

I pray that this blesses you and gives you the motivation you need to level up and show yourself what being a conqueror looks and feels like.

Be blessed,
KG♥

What Will Your Dash Say About You? Why It’s Time to Live Your Best Life Now!

There is no better time than the present to live your best life now~KG

So, I’m sitting here trying to think of the perfect words to say to convey the message I have in my heart to share.  The more that I keep trying to come up with catchy, clever things to say, the more at a loss for words I am.

To say what I want to say really doesn’t need fancy words or clever phrases.  The only thing that I can think to say is just the pure truth.

Recently, I’ve seen death touch the lives of almost everyone around me.  It started last December when my family was faced with the sudden death of one of my close family members.  She was a young 43 years old and her death was very sudden and unexpected.  She was healthy and lived a very lively life.

Even though she lived life to the fullest it seemed to those around her,  I don’t know if she would say that she lived her BEST life.  She probably would feel that there was still things that she didn’t get to do and dreams she didn’t get to live.

Dealing with something so tragic opened my eyes and gave me just that much more motivation to go after my dreams NO MATTER What!

For the last two years, I’ve been reading books about chasing dreams and living a great life.  First I read, No Matter What by Lisa Nichols and I was motivated to chase my dreams no matter what obstacles come my way.  So I began the process of becoming a Life Coach.  Then tragedy struck and I was temporarily knocked off of my rocker.

At the beginning of this year, 2016, I read another Lisa Nichols book, Abundance Now.  It was that book that pushed me out of my pity party and into fulfilling my dream of coaching and helping people live their best lives NOW.

You see, what I realized is that most of us are so caught up in the “right now,” that we can’t see beyond our current circumstances.  We get so lost in the mundane of everyday life, that we let our dreams die.

Steve Harvey recently repeated a quote that further pushed me out of my comfort zone.  Steve Harvey was speaking at one of his success events and he was speaking on not letting go of your imagination and he quoted Albert Einstein:

“Imagination is everything, it is a preview of life’s coming attractions.”

If you can imagine it, you can live it or have it.  God didn’t give you vision just to tease you or frustrate you.  He gave you vision so that you can see what life can be if you put forth the work necessary to make the vision a reality.

Your gift was given to you so that you can share it with the world, not to hold on to it and hide it from everyone including yourself.  We were all given gifts and talents that are connected to our purpose.  If you’re not sharing your gift, you’re not fulfilling your purpose, the reason you were created.

At the end of the day, we all will meet the same fate.  One day, this thing called life is going to come to an end for us all.  Most of us, if we’ve lived a good life, will have those that we touched speak our praises and keep our memories alive.  They’ll tell everyone they know about what type of person you were and everything you did to touch them, to inspire them or to help them.

Stephen Covey says in his book, 7 Habits of Highly Effective People, that you should begin with the end in mind.  If you thought of your life starting with the end.  And really contemplated how you wanted the end to be.  What do you want people to say about you at your funeral or wake?  What legacy would you like to leave behind?  If you really thought about your life with the end in mind, would you say that you’re currently doing the things you want to remembered for?  Are you living your best life?

Quit putting off your goals and dreams for tomorrow, tomorrow is not promised.  Quit letting fear, bad relationships, lack of finances,

Quit putting off your goals and dreams for tomorrow, tomorrow is not promised.
or anything else that is a small detail to a bigger picture, keep you from living your best life.

In the end, there will probably be a headstone with your name, date of birth and date of death.  If you’re lucky, maybe some nice words.

Here lies Kendra Garcia, loving wife and mother.  Born date-death date.  The end.

What will your dash represent for you?  The dash that separates the date you entered the world and the date you exited.  What type of life will that dash represent?  Will if represent a life well lived? A kind generous person with a good heart? Or will it represent a social media fraud?  Someone faking the funk for people who don’t care whether or not you post tomorrow.  A person that used all of those around them for their own personal gain?

Life is short and no one knows what tomorrow holds.  The only certain thing we know is this moment, right now.  It’s time.  Time for you to stop being paralyzed by the unknown.  It’s time for you to do that thing that you’ve always wanted to do.  Take a risk on yourself and your dreams.  Step out on faith and start that business you’ve always wanted to start.  Get out of that relationship that is not growing you and is in fact slowly killing you.  Start a new career.  Go back to school.

It’s time for you to truly live your best life NOW!

If you’re ready to take the step to start living and stop thinking about what life would be like if you were just able to do the things that you’ve always wanted, contact me and let’s discuss how I can help you start living your best life NOW and accomplishing the things you’ve always wanted to accomplish.

Start putting in the work now to make your dash count for something later.

Your Friend in your head and in real life too,

KG
