Just one extra degree makes all the difference.

fierce habit lifestyle Apr 02, 2019

At 211 degrees, water is hot.

At 212 degrees, it boils.

And with boiling water, comes steam.

And with steam, you can power a train.


Just one extra degree makes all the difference.


One degree. One itty bitty movement forward.

That difference creates a ripple effect of power, of change, of IMPACT!

YES! Extraordinary results can begin with one small change and lead to maximum achievement in life, in business, and in your health! 

What could your one degree be this month?

Think small...


And, guess what???

212 is exactly the number of pairs of shoes FIERCE donated to Soles4Souls with your help!

Now, THAT'S power!!!

I am blown away by the love and generosity of our FIERCE family!  Look what we were able to do, ONE PAIR OF SHOES at a time!! 

Thank YOU to everyone who donated, who added that one degree! 

This is what YOU have given to so many people...


The sale of 1 pair of shoes can...

Can you "Kondo" your mind?

fierce habit lifestyle Mar 19, 2019


Short answer? Yes.

And, it's about choosing joy. 


But first, what does "Kondo" mean?


"Kondo" is referring to best-selling author and acclaimed tidying expert, Marie Kondo, who is dedicated to inspiring the world to choose joy with the KonMari Method™ by organizing our belongings, homes, and lives. 

"The KonMari Method™ is a state of mind – and a way of life – that encourages cherishing the things that spark joy in one’s life. Belongings are acknowledged for their service – and thanked before being let go, should they no longer spark joy."

This method gained popularity in 2011 with the release of Marie Kondo's first book, "The Life-Changing Magic of Tidying Up".  Then, at the beginning of this year, Netflix launched a new series called, "Tidying Up with Marie Kondo" which catapulted The KonMari Method™ into a new stratosphere. 


"To truly cherish the things that are...

Could it be true? Facebook... the king of social media, broken?

Could it be true?

Facebook... the king of social media, broken?

Oh yes. 


Sheer panic set in yesterday as millions of people weren't able to share what they were doing and/or see what other people were doing... which at its core is what social media proves...amiright?

From the conversations I had, people were either completely paralyzed without access to social media or their productivity skyrocketed because the primary source of distractions was not an option for hours on end. 

What about you?


As I experienced a roller coaster of emotions yesterday, including both extremes above, I realized that I spend a lot of time:

  1. Comparing myself to others
  2. Wondering what people think about me
  3. Being distracted from tasks that truly are important... usually as an avoidance tactic


So, what's a girl who runs 1/2 her business and spends hours on social media daily do when it's taken away?


Yes!  I called...

Are you looking or waiting for a sign, something, anything that will give you direction and clarity on what you should do?

fierce habit lifestyle Mar 05, 2019

Are you looking or waiting for a sign Derith, something, anything that will give you direction and clarity on what you should do?

Most of us do...hoping, wishing, and praying that the answers will magically appear and fall in our laps so we don't have to decide. 

Sound familiar?

Why? Why do we do this?


Well, it's because we don't trust our ability to make the "right" decision or we fear that we'll make the wrong one; and probably a little bit of both. 

What I've learned, and am sharing with you today, is that the answers only come AFTER we make the commitment to move in a certain direction. 

The decision is what brings clarity and guides us forward.  Once we have that, then and only then do the answers appear to create the plan, the steps, the ACTION... not the other way around. 

And, I learned this past weekend that when it comes to my decisions, the 6th time is in fact the charm... 


We've all...

"Coach, if I could just stop eating, things would be great!"

fierce habit lifestyle Feb 19, 2019

"Coach, if I could just stop eating, things would be great!"


Yep... I hear this statement (and the many variations of it) a lot; and the frequency practically triples in winter months. 

While we know we can't just "stop eating", this tends to be our go-to statement when our weight begins to creep up... definitely an issue in the winter. 

What we're really saying here is that we want to stop overeating, stop mindlessly snacking, and stop feeding our emotions... winter blues anyone?


So why do we eat so much in the winter? 

Where do these comfort cravings come from?

How can we stop the food insanity?


Let's dive in... 

It's TRUE that most people gain weight during the winter and there are several factors that come into play.  However, in case you're wondering, it has less to do with our ancestors and "caveman" days then it does with lack of sunshine, nutrients, and habits. 

Now, there was a time, long ago,...

Sometimes asking for help is the bravest move you can make. You don't have to go it alone.

Sometimes asking for help is the bravest move you can make.  You don't have to go it alone.


Oh boy, not only did I think I could do it alone, but I tried and I tried and I tried. "It" being pretty much EVERYTHING in my life. 

Honestly, I didn't ask for help until about a year ago when it was practically forced on me through a mini-intervention at Cafe Nero, a local coffee shop here. 

You two know who you are and my heart is forever grateful. xo

This intervention came after a 2nd round of Shingles for me (yeah... I know) as a desperate plea for me to slow down, get my bearings, and say yes to all of the people who were offering to help me.  

And I did... after some tears, a lot of deep breaths, and swallowing my pride, of course.  

Up to this point, I was a self-proclaimed Super Woman who not only could do everything but should do everything by herself, with a smile.  That makes me laugh now...


Asking for help became a...
