If you don’t start today, when are you going to start? Today’s message will power you UP for immediate action and results…

Have you ever said, I can’t?

Have you ever said, I can’t?


It’s too late for me…

I’m too old…

I don’t have time…

My past is too _______…

My this…

My that…

Well, I’ve got great news for you…


You’re right if you think you can’t.

You’re right if you think you can.

But what if it wasn’t about being right or wrong?

How would that change things?

What IF you could simply do what you want RIGHT NOW?

Like, you could make a decision…

Because guess what?

If you’re excuse for not starting today is that you’re too old — you’re going to be older tomorrow!

And it’s NOT about starting OVER either.

It’s about starting…


And continuing.

No matter what.


The longer you carry your excuses and the heaviness that comes with it, the harder it becomes and the heavier you get!

So let’s get in front of the mirror today and take a look at what you have to work with…

Let’s take inventory of your resources.

Let’s take care of that which we value.

What do you say?!

If not, then you’ll keep getting what you’ve always gotten.

You’ll become heavier, older, unhappier, and all those other words that end with ER…

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


Answer the questions…

Where in your life right now are you making excuses?

Where are you blaming?

Where are you NOT taking ownership and responsibility.

Are you willing to SEE YOURSELF for who you truly are today under all that excuse, blame, shame, heaviness, and extra WAIT?

If you couldn’t use IT as an excuse, what would you do with it?

If you’re using anything as an excuse, it’s a sign that you haven’t taken ownership…
