Summer can be the season in which we find ourselves realizing we have been stuck in a rut all year and still haven’t made the progress we told ourselves would DEFINITELY happen in 2017.
Does this sound like you, sister?
Something I want to talk about to today is something that has been coming up in my space a lot, and that is personal growth.
No, it’s not another book to read or a goal sheet to fill out.
HERE’S WHAT I TALKED ABOUT:
- How our environment influences your motivation and your growth, and how you can make any environment work positively for your transformation.
- Why the people that you surround yourself can be bringing you down and how you can build better friendships that push you to grow closer to weight loss goals.
- Why becoming personally accountable can push you to grow towards your passion and set you up for a fulfilling and successful life you’ll love.
Where Things Go Wrong:
If you are familiar with my story, then you know that I lived in Moscow until I got put in a different environment in Alaska.
I was forced to grow with this change. I learned a new language, made new friends, and found new passions.
Sister, our environment has to be supportive of our goals, our mental well-being, and how we want to grow. For me, San Diego was the place that was offering me the opportunity to grow into an entrepreneur. The exact one I knew I was and the entrepreneur Alaska’s corporate world was not letting me be.
When I first came to San Diego, lifestyle entrepreneurship was booming, and this gave me, even more, space to grow.
Does this mean you have buy a ticket, jump on a plane, and relocate to San Diego today? No, but wouldn’t that be nice? (I am literally writing this in my bikini, gotta love the sunshine).
I knowingly and unknowingly have put myself in the environment where I would be able to grow and tap into my gift and my knowledge because the environment allowed me to.
But location isn’t just geographical, and we can create the environments that push us to grow and achieve our goals.
We can get that environment from workshops, certification programs, extracurricular activities, work, and from anywhere that we are. It just takes an attention and a willingness to step out of comfort zone to discover something new for ourselves.

“Your Vibe Attracts Your Tribe”- a quote I once saw on Instagram:
I once heard another quote that really spoke to me; “tell me who your friends are and I will tell you who you are.” Now, I am not saying that you are exactly those people. However, it is important to note that those people do have influences in our lives and that they are impactful.
Ask yourself: am I surrounding myself with kickass people?
We must look at the immediate circle of people that we surround ourselves with and take an honest look and an honest assessment. To be completely truthful, honesty may not always make us feel warm and fuzzy. However, the truth is the truth.
Sister, let’s pull out our pens and paper and write it all down.

I said that the truth can be ugly and the truth is that sometimes you have to let some people go in order to blossom to your full potential.
You Are Not a Tree:
Our surroundings determine our habits, actions, thoughts, emotions, which overall become our success and our destiny in life.
If they are not in alignment with our values for growth, joy, and passions, then we can make the conscious move to change those surroundings.
Sister, we are not trees and we don’t ever have to be stuck in a single place. We can move and not just sway with the wind (sometimes I take analogies too far).
It takes an enormous amount of courage and strength. But if we are truly willing to make these moves, it means that we are truly serious about living a life we love.
Sister, we deserve to have an environment that aligns with our values and our passions and it is up to us go give ourselves what we deserve and motivates us to grow.
After all, we are goddesses, let’s treat ourselves as such.
