I am choosing to start today with gratitude. 🙏💗 I have a to do list a mile long and a calendar with no free space until November.
I am going on four hours of sleep.
I feel like I am fighting off a bug of some sort (or it could be allergies). I am being pulled in a million directions and have to make some tough decisions about my time.
But rather than think of all that, I chose to start the day counting my blessings. Because when you do that, it puts you in a good frame of mind moving forward.
What is one thing you are grateful for this morning 👇

Gaslighting... “I never said that. You’re making things up again.”
“Are you sure You tend to have a bad memory.”
“It’s all in your head.” This term comes from the 1938 stage play Gas Light, in which a husband attempts to drive his wife crazy by dimming the lights (which were powered by gas) in their home. When his wife points it out, he denies that the light changed. Gaslighting is an extremely effective form of emotional abuse that causes a victim to question their own feelings, instincts and sanity, which gives the abusive partner a lot of power (and we know that abuse is about power and control). Once an abusive partner has broken down the victim’s ability to trust their own perceptions, the victim is more likely to stay in the abusive relationship.
Gaslighting tends to happen very gradually in a relationship; in fact, the abusive partner’s actions may seem like just a harmless misunderstanding at first. Over time, however, these abusive behaviors continue, and a victim can become confused, anxious, isolated and depressed, while losing all sense of what is actually happening. Then, the victim may start relying on the abusive partner more and more to define reality, which creates a very difficult situation to escape.
I think this is difficult for most people to fully understand, myself included. It breaks my heart. It is so hard to see otherwise strong and confident women completely torn down. The power their abuser has over them remains long after they leave, if they even make it to that point.
Words have power. A lot of power. And they can leave deeper and more permanent scars than any physical mark ever could.

Life is full of test and we don’t always pass. Speaking from experience because I failed the test of
worry vs faith yesterday. As I continue my journey, try to inspire, & motivate people the only way I can do that is to be transparent. Meaning can’t always discuss & show things when it’s all good. I stayed up all night worrying about a situation/obstacle knowing good & well worrying won’t fix it. It took me sometime but I had to remind myself that my faith is much stronger, and that I can do anything, whatever is next it’s mine I’m going to get it. When I did that I relaxed & fell asleep. Woke up the next morning & everything I worried about was fixed & there was no need for me to be worried in the first place. So I’m telling you through experience & as a reminder to myself that you can’t pray & worry/fear. Stay focused, Power through that weak moment & know just on the other side of that worry/fear is your blessing. .

“If you want to be successful and have that place in the sun, you have to leave the shade.” • Over here just chasing the sunrise ☀️
•Thanks to @mikesheffer_ my diet plan guru and @popeyesburnaby_coquitlam for keeping my supps stocked! You the real MVP’s. Let’s keep this train rollin’ 😈
Do you believe today's boxing class turned into wrestling class at the.beginning, LOL.
I found I still favor free style wrestling skills(shooting single or double legs), even I haven't been in any Sanda fights for a long time. Maybe we should not pretend we're fine recently after we went through something hard, but we can admit it and face the scar, and tell ourselves, life goes on, and everyone has to go on.
Perhaps I couldn't have any fights in the rest of time of this year, because of duty job. I think I still can keep the promise to myself, which are gett thinner, and being on time（ without being exhausted before any appointments). Hence, I went to work out after boxing class for hundred times squats

When 💵 is no longer an issue and I have as much of it as I want, I’m going to look back fondly of these days of cheap hotel rooms in order to attend seminars.
This is the lovely room I stayed in last week for The Trojan horse foundational workshop (Trial skills workshop), and the same room I’ll be staying in again next week for the advanced Trojan horse framing workshop. (Can’t want to stack up those La Quinta reward points baby! 🕺🏻)
I’ve been OBSESSED with self improvement of ALL types since 2006. “Heavy in the game” as they say. .
I’ve been to more seminars than I can count since this all started. .
Never once since then have I stayed at the hotel the seminar is at.
If you didn’t know, they usually have these seminars at upper scale hotels.
I do whatever I can to attend these seminars which often are more than I can afford, so as a result, I NEVER stay in the seminar hotel, opting instead to stay in a shitty hotel in usually in an area of town further away, as that’s usually the only way I can make it all work financially. .
Not a huge goal, ha, but I look forward to the day where I can just wake up that morning and head downstairs to begin the seminar instead of losing sleep by having to wake up extra early and commuting to the hotel, Which is all I’ve ever known... .
I know one day though when I am super successful, I’m going to look back on all this nostalgically and respect a young kid’s desire to grow at whatever sacrifice he had to make for personal comfort. ✊
Btw, I’ll share this with everyone. I’m finally going to try to stay in my first seminar hotel next July for the @officialdrjoedispenza Advanced workshop in July, 2019 in Portland. This is a MAJOR GOAL For me and one I visualize almost EVERY MORNING while doing the dispenza meditation AND IM GOING TO MAKE IT HAPPEN NO MATTER WHAT. #manifesting 🙇🏻♂️
