Today’s S.O.L. Story will teach you not only the difference between clean sweat and stinky sweat, it’ll also reveal one of the most underutilized resources we have as humans.

It’s a very simple, yet profound thing called AWARENESS.

You may have heard of awareness being half the battle, but it truly is the VICTORY.

That’s right, awareness with action is victory.

It’s required, but SO underutilized.

H.E.A.L. redefined, is:

Hope. (Belief, desire, trust.)
Engaged energy.

Awareness is one of the most powerful opportunities available. Especially for HEALING.

We must become AWARE.

The majority of humans are far too UNAWARE.

It’s important to keep this in mind:

What we can’t see can hurt us.

Open your eyes, and get all senses on go. Be aware of what’s happening around you and within you.

I noticed that I had a lot of judgement.

Do you ever catch yourself doing the same thing…judging others?

When the truth is, it was really none of my business.

What was, and is, my business is to BE AWARE.

I believe all of us need to be reminded of the importance of AWARENESS in living a healthy, wealthy, fulfilled life.

Awareness is key, but is so uncommon and underutilized.

Where in your life have you become unaware of what you’re leaving behind you, what’s in front of you, and what’s inside of you?

Where do you need to become more aware of what’s occurring in your life, from above, down, inside, and out?

Please grab your SACRED S.O.L. D.A.T.E. JOURNAL (Daily Action To Engage yourself.)


Where in your life do you feel you could become more aware of what’s going on in your life?

Write it down. Identify and acknowledge it.

Become aware, and take at least one step today in creating the life you desire.
