This past weekend I gave up sun at the Jersey Shore teaching SUP Yoga to travel out to Kansas City and take a deep dive into personal and professional development. If you follow me on social media, you may have seen me mention a mealtime solutions company called Wildtree. Over a year and a half ago, I was looking to add meal planning and prepping into my service offerings. Wildtree literally fell into my lap. I’ll chat more about Wildtree in a future post, but taking a chance on Wildtree is one of the best decisions I could have made for myself, my home life, and my business. The past weekend was literally a non-stop fire under my butt.
Keywords to Live By
The three keywords I took away from this year’s Wildtree Conference are discipline, consistency, and vision. No matter what your home, health, or career aspirations are, these words apply to any situation. Without vision, there’s no purpose for doing something. Don’t be on a hamster wheel! Have a vision for what you ultimately want to achieve. And make it BIG! Without consistency, you’re not working towards your vision at a steady pace to reach it sooner. And without discipline, there can be no consistency to make it happen EVERY SINGLE DAY.

Yes, Rory Vaden actually told me to “Get my *hit together.”
Don’t MIND Me
One of the biggest ways we psych ourselves out is with the conversations that take place in our own minds. Mr E is my biggest supporter and cheerleader. And I’m likewise for him. Yet I never say things as nice to myself as I do to Mr E. I tell my yoga students all the time our minds can be our worst enemy. How do we fight this beast? Through positive affirmations.
Positive affirmations, mantras, sayings, or whatever you want to call it is the only way to bring good energy into your atmosphere. These are the words and phrases that hype you up and give reminders back to you vision. They provide reminders to stay consistent towards that discipline.
At the conference we were asked several times to write our positive affirmations and share them with others. They were posted on stickies on the bathroom mirror. We dropped handwritten ones in hats for others to grab. And I personally wrote my new affirmation, took a picture of it, and will be putting it EVERYWHERE to serve as a reminder for how to work towards my vision with consistency and discipline:
“IF IT DOESN’T SERVE ME, IT DOESN’T DESERVE ME”
I have a tendency to get easily distracted. I take on too much at a time. And I don’t prioritize. My new personal mantra states that if something doesn’t serve the greater good of my mission, it doesn’t deserve my time doing or worrying about it. The first step of restructuring a mindset is to take away the things that don’t serve a purpose. The second is to tell others your intention so THEY can serve as reminders. It’s part of how we PAVE™ the way to success.
Mr E has been made aware of the deal. He’s another reminder of my mantra. And now it’s HIS turn to create his personal saying. Here’s that he had to say:
