  • Ups And Downs Of Personal Development: Why It’s Worth It

    Ups And Downs Of Personal Development: Why It’s Worth It

    2 Comments
    Self love, authentic relationships and personal growth⁣⁣⁣These are all things that are extremely hard yet also incredibly worth it. These are the “tough times” we talk about in the personal development world⁣⁣⁣Tomorrow I will be recording a solo podcast on the ups and downs of personal development! Here are the basics ⁣⁣⁣⁣SELF LOVE⁣♦️ Self love is challenging because it forces you to look at all of the places you’re withholding love from yourself. Where you’re being too critical and too harsh. Where you’re suppressing desire and expression. Where you’re lacking commitment and discipline. I always say that self love IS self discipline. The prices of learning to love yourself comes from the process of accepting yourself and also trusting yourself (through action and practice).⁣ ✔️ Learning to love yourself is one of the greatest gifts you can ever give you’re self. When you love yourself you stick to what you say you’re going to do. You’re kind to yourself through the process (wins and failures). You give yourself the time and patience to grow and evolve. Becoming someone who practices self love means you prioritize your needs and your desires in the world… and best of all, you take action to make them happen! ⁣⁣⁣⁣AUTHENTIC RELATIONSHIPS ⁣♦️ Creating authentic relationships is hard because it forces you to look at the darkest parts of yourself: greed, shame, regret, vengeance, anger, jealousy, insecurities etc. Authentic relationships challenges you to see and accept the darkest parts of you. It challenges you to apologize, communicate and make amends with the people who suffered from your personal struggles. Then, authentic relationships make you expose your fears and vulnerabilities. The true (healthy) way to bond with others comes from open and honest relationships. Aka the opposite of trauma bonding which a lot of us are accustomed …Read More »
  • How To Find Your Beauty

    How To Find Your Beauty

    No Comments
    I was out to lunch with my good friend Jess and we were talking about the importance of self love & confidence. Here’s some conclusions 👇🏽⁣⁣⁣Beauty comes from the inside.⁣⁣⁣There’s no amount of filters, fillers (I live in LA lol) or photoshop that can change how you actually FEEL about yourself. ⁣⁣⁣Confidence comes from within…⁣⁣Happiness comes from within…⁣⁣Acceptance comes from within…⁣⁣⁣⁣Beauty comes from inside. ⁣⁣An ugly personality won’t be masked by a beautiful face. They will always be ugly because what’s on the inside is what actually matters in the long run. ⁣⁣⁣At some point you realize that nothing needs to change on the outside. The only thing that truly needs to change is your mindset & the amount of love you show yourself. That’s how you finally feel beautiful, confident and comfortable in your own skin. It will never come from someone else. Repeat it with me… IT WILL NEVER COME FROM SOMEONE ELSE. It HAS to come from within!⁣⁣⁣We also discussed “beautiful features” and how⁣To celebrate them instead of envy them. In LA there’s a lot of plastic surgery and photoshop that helps people achieve a desired look. This sparked an incredible discussion between Jess and I about “beautiful features”. Instead of seeing someone’s lips, body or eyebrows and thinking “that’s beautiful I wish I had that” why can’t we just celebrate THEM for THEIR beautiful and unique qualities.⁣⁣⁣Over this past year I’ve learned so much about self love and one of the biggest lessons was to celebrate others! I realized that I can’t be all the things I wish I could be and I can’t have all of the beautiful features I wish I could have BUT I can be me and I can celebrate what I bring to the table. I can make a decision to …Read More »
  • Resolutions That Actually Work

    Resolutions That Actually Work

    2 Comments
    I didn’t make resolutions for 2020. For a coach that’s definitely out of the ordinary. ⁣⁣⁣I did something different this year!⁣ ⁣Instead of creating resolutions, I created structures that produce the things that I desire. Things like health, wealth, alignment, love, happiness, fulfillment and connection.⁣⁣⁣I do that by being intentional and consistent with the habits and actions that make me feel good. As human beings were guided by our feelings and our self talk. This year I’m challenging you to see resolutions slightly different! 👁 ⁣⁣⁣I believe that people fuck up resolutions because of (1)feelings, (2)self talk and (3)lack of consistency.⁣⁣FEELINGS ⁣What you focus on, you create. Therefore, if your resolutions are fueled by self hatred and negativity you will never truly achieve your goals. Typically people choose to make change out of a place of pain and although that can be a motivator it’s not necessarily the best or most efficient. Creating a change out of love is the best, quickest and most efficient way for making lasting change. How have your feelings impacted your goals in the past?⁣⁣SELF TALK⁣Self talk is something we all deal with. It can work for you or it can work against you and I’m sure you’ve seen that play out in your own life. Forcing yourself to do something through inflicting feelings of guilt, shame or any other negative based feeling will leave you feeling empty, alone and unworthy. Instead of allowing negative feelings to create negative self talk which fuels the cycle, make a different choice. Like I said above, come from a place of love and other positive emotions. Then, make an effort to gauge the way you talk to yourself. What do you need to tell yourself when you’re struggling with a resolution? How can you encourage yourself to take action instead …Read More »

    2020 will go by just as fast as 2019 did and if you didn’t make progress this past year… you probably won’t make significant progress this year either.⁣⁣NOTHING CHANGES UNLESS NOTHING CHANGES ⁣⁣I’d you don’t commit to your (1) growth and (2) choosing the uncomfortable in the short term then you will be very unhappy in the long term! In order to produce results you have to take CONSISTENT action.⁣⁣⁣It’s not always the massive action that stops us. Most of the time it’s not. In reality it’s the small steps daily that we avoid or procrastinate… and that’s what kills us in the end. Your limiting beliefs and fearS are the things that are holding you back from making those small daily decisions. If you need help with that, slide into my dms. I just released a podcast on this exact topic using myself and the podcast as the example!!⁣⁣⁣A Liv Teixeira Production is the result of small steps in the right direction.

    4 Lessons From 2019

    No Comments
    My 2019 has been full of wins and losses, just like yours has. For me, the biggest win this year in my personal life has easily been my friendships. The continuous effort and support I’ve received from my friends this year has surpassed anything else I’ve ever experienced. The newfound success with building conscious, healthy and loving relationships with others has been some of my fondest memories of all of 2019. This year my friends and the people I surround myself with have really pushed me to level up in a number of ways.⁣ 1. Being honest.⁣⁣My friends have really taught me how to be more honest with myself and how I’m ACTUALLY feeling. Contrary to popular belief I’m not THAT open when it comes to my feelings (feeling scared or insecure or sad). My friends have really created a safe space that encourages me to be real with who I am and what I’m currently working through. Also, it’s encouraged me to be real with them and what’s going good/bad with our relationships.⁣⁣⁣2. Trust myself.⁣⁣They’ve pressured and encouraged me to dig deeper when I’m questioning things. To trust myself and my judgement in any and all situations. We know what to do. We know how we feel. Its more about trusting ourselves than it is looking outward for more guidance and information. ⁣⁣⁣3. Ultimate authenticity ⁣⁣My friends have really inspired me to be more me. To celebrate and encourage all sides of me and all seasons of my growth. The more you’re able to love others authentically for who they are, the more you can do it for yourself. It’s about celebrating all stages of your process.⁣⁣⁣4. Loving unconditionally. ⁣⁣This one is simple. Love yourself without judgement. Love yourself without expectation. Love yourself without thinking you should be somewhere …Read More »

    Why You Don’t Hit Your Goals

    No Comments
    You’re not missing your goals because of time or circumstances. We’ve all had the same 365 days over the last year. What did you make of it? The reason you maybe didn’t hit goals is because you don’t have (1) clarity/focus and (2) commitment ⁣⁣⁣Before going into 2020 give yourself some serious TIME to reflect on the year. What went well? What didn’t go well? Where did I hit my mark? Where did I miss? Do this reflection so that you can piece together how you want to make 2020 different than 2019. What do you want more of? What do you want less of? What do you want to do? What do you want to accomplish? ANSWER THESE QUESTIONS!⁣⁣⁣Going into 2020 get crystal clear about what you want. Keep it simple.⁣⁣⁣ My game plan going into 2020 is to have TWO major goals that I’m working towards. Not 5 or 6 and not definitely 10. Just TWO. Having less goals doesn’t necessarily make it easier. It makes you more focused. It makes you commit fully to those two things. And instead of having 10 things you’re working towards and keeping tabs on…it’s just 2. Having two goals is very simple and it’s black and white. There’s no room for excuses…⁣⁣⁣You either did them or you didn’t.Read More »

    Caring what others think is exhausting yet we all do it in a variety of ways. In the most recent daily episode I break down the 4 steps to eradicate this habit for good!!⁣⁣ 4 ways to stop caring what people think about you: ⁣⁣⁣1. Identify which areas matter to you. What area is a place where you care what others think? Your looks, your ability, your work, you intelligence, your sense of humor? What area are you hypersensitive about? We all have one just be honest with yourself.⁣⁣⁣2. Identify who’s opinion you value most. Is it a parent or another family member? Is it a friend or someone you admire? Who’s approval matters most to you? Who’s disapproval or disappointment would hurt the most? When you’re looking for validation or recognition, who do you go to?⁣⁣⁣3. What type of person do you care about most? This is more so in the general public and when you’re meeting people for the first time. Who’s first impression matters the most? Guys? Girls? Good looking people? Cool people? Smart people? Authoritative people? Confident or dominant people? Giving or generous people? Who’s opinion do you value MOST?⁣⁣⁣4. Identify what the route cause of this insecurity is and where it comes from. Who was the first person you experienced this vulnerability, insecurity or pressure (to be something) with? What was this fear protecting you from in the future?⁣⁣⁣⁣Identify what the problem is and where it comes from. Recognize and accept that a younger (maybe less educated/aware) version of you created this story. Recognize its impact over the years. Allow yourself to validate this insecurity, comparison or negative self belief. It is real. And it probably affected you deeply at one point.

James is also the host of the Win The Day podcast where he breaks down most successful people in their respected industry. People like Rob Ddyrdek and Barbara Corcoran. During the interview we discussed and talked at length on a variety of topics. Here, I condensed them into 7 main themes and lessons. IT’S IMPORTANT TO BECOME RICH We discussed Think And Grow Rich and also the Law Of Attraction. Sometimes people get too caught up in the idea that money is the ultimate goal with both ideologies. The real goal is to be rich. Rich in relationshipsRich in time Rich in freedomnRich in abundanceAnd of course rich in experiences Becoming rich in any and all of these areas requires you to unlock your potential. The key to unlocking your potential is also where most people are lacking: in a sense of practicality. Napoleon Hill stresses the importance of action. ACTION is what produces results. Action is the key to unlocking your true potential. It requires consistency and trial and error. When Jim Carrey says that money won’t make you happy; it’s the truth.

    The most important relationship you are ever going to have is with YOURSELF.⁣⁣ ⁣GET TO KNOW YOURSELF⁣⁣What do you like? What are you interested in? What are your selfish goals? What are some bucket list things you want to cross off before you die? What type of person do you want to be? What type of husband/wife, son/daughter, parents, friend, do you want to be? What do you want your legacy to be? What do you want people to describe you as? What’s your favorite country? What’s your favorite food? What environment do you thrive in? What is your greatest strength and greatest weakness? What are you truly passionate about? What does a successful life mean to you?⁣⁣BE HONEST WITH YOURSELF⁣⁣Do not lie. Don’t lie about where you’re at. Don’t lie about how hard you are working. You can (but shouldn’t) lie to other people but please above anyone and anything do not lie to yourself. Be honest about how you are feeling. You will have to face it sooner or later. Instead of lying or shying away from the truth, build an honest and open relationship with yourself. Be truthful and consistent with you. ⁣⁣SELF-AWARE-BASED SUPPORT ⁣⁣We are all different and as much as we would LIKE to be a certain way, sometimes we just aren’t.

    ”You find those allies, the people that know you the best in life, the ones who crack you up through the ups and downs. My guess is that’s the first and last thing we remember when we die.” ⁣ That was a piece of @bryancallen last IG post and it inspired this blog post ⁣https://www.instagram.com/p/B1wj_ikAuY1/ Let get real. What actually matters in life? I see all of these people promoting and grinding for success and success ONLY. What are you trying so hard to achieve that’s “going to change everything”?? If you make it to the very top and you make all of the money and receive all of the recognition, then what? Who are you doing to celebrate with? ⁣⁣⁣If a tree falls down in the middle of a forest, would you hear it? If you succeed and no one is there to watch, did you truly succeed? If you succeed and you had NO fun throughout the entire process, was it worth it? ⁣⁣⁣At the end of the day the things that matter cannot be bought. Its laughing with your buddies, driving with the windows down singing along to your favorite song, and making fun of each other while going through life. Like I said on my last podcast episode…if you cant have fun jamming out to rap music in your GRANDPARENTS MINIVAN, you’re not going to do it when you’re cruising in a Lambo…. Essentially, if this is you, you’re fucked.⁣⁣How happy you are now IS how happy you will be when you achieve all that you are longing to achieve. ⁣Read that again.⁣ Don’t waste today’s happiness in pursuits that tomorrows will be more rewarding. ⁣Make you’re energy and your happiness a priority right now 🙏🏽🔑Read More »

    3 Actionable Items For Success

    Reminder:⁣⁣⁣It’s not going to be easy⁣It’s not going to happen quick⁣⁣⁣But when it happens, it’s going to be worth it⁣ Today I spoke at an event on success and how to truly achieve it⁣. We discussed the nitty gritty details on how to achieve fulfillment in whatever you’re doing. We discussed the steps and tangible actions that will get you there. The three actionable items to achieving success are Having A Clear Goal Repetition Alignment Having A Clear Goal It is important that you are crystal clear on your goal and where you are headed. This requires some inner work and some focus. First, you have to figure out what it is that you truly deeply want then you have to get clear on the physical ask. What are you asking for? What are you working towards. This includes numbers, dates, and other tangible information. Focus is powerful. This is where focus is required for real success. Repetition Self discipline requires self love. In order to make this dream a reality you have to do the work. And you have to do the work consistently. It won’t happen over night and it won’t happen if you’re not consistent. Goals and dreams require commitment. How committed are you to achieving and accomplishing your goal? Are you working at it every day? You should be. Focus + Consistency = Power Alignment ⁣⁣Alignment is the last piece of the puzzle and what really makes all of this work like a well oiled machine. You have to align yourself with what it is that you want. We create alignment by imaging, dreaming and even just thinking about what it is you’re working towards and how it will feel once you get there. The feeling is the key component here.

    PSA For Fake Social Media B.S.

    We live in a world where being fake gets rewarded. It’s sad to watch and even worse to see people actually believing it. I’m here to tell you the brutal and honest truth. ⁣Driving fast expensive cars, hooking up with hot chicks or successful dudes, photoshopping yourself into an unrecognizable version of you (come on we see the mismatching backgrounds and photoshop errors) and of course, making a bunch of money, seems to be some (of the many) themes I’ve seen since I’ve moved to LA. I fucking love LA. There is so much opportunity here it’s insane! And to be honest I really love the people. Most of the people I meet have pretty good intentions, goals and overall good heads on their shoulders. However, I also realize that there is a lot of insecurity and not specifically in LA but more so in the social media world. A lot of fronting and acting like you have something that you don’t. ⁣⁣⁣I’m not knocking it! A personal brand that hits all the weak spots, insecurities and wildest dreams of the consumer… is great marketing. Actually, it’s excellent! And if it’s solely for marketing purposes, I support it. ⁣We’re all running a business at the end of the day.⁣However, most of the time it’s not for marketing or strategy. It’s for personal validation. The cars and the money and the girls and photoshopped/FaceTuned bodies are often NOT for the marketing. And THAT is the problem. It’s a way to manage insecurities and to portray an untrue image on social media in order to get that said validation. ⁣If you are doing this… please stop. And if you are seeing it, consuming it and even worse, believing it…realize that it’s not actually real. Stop comparing yourself to this unrealistic way of …Read More »
  • How To Interview Highly Successful People

    How To Interview Highly Successful People

    No Comments
    I recently did a podcast where I discussed how I got Grant Cardone on my podcast. He is a Real Estate, Sales and Finance mogul. He is also a busy, very busy, man. Therefore, getting this interview was a catch! Which is exactly why I am going to break down how I got him to come on my podcast A Liv Teixeira Production. 1. To Be Honest It Was LUCK If luck were when… Preparation meets opportunity. People are so quick to make excuses as to why they can’t accomplish the same feats that others accomplish when in reality everyone has the same ability to succeed. There was no difference between me and anyone else who had a podcast in LA since he openly advertised on his social media that he was looking to collaborate with other popular podcasts. 2. I ASKED FOR IT! I had the courage and the belief in myself to ask for the interview. There are a million reasons why I could have shied away from asking wether they be self doubt, negative self talk or just lack of confidence in my ability and show. ALL OF THOSE WERE AN OPTION. It would have been easy for me to make that excuse and say that I wasn’t qualified for it. But this is what separates the successful from the not-so-successful ➝ are you willing to bet on yourself? I was willing to bet on myself. A friend sent me his request and I immediately emailed his people to schedule the interview. I was persistent and I followed up and a week later there I was interviewing Grant Cardone on finance, goals and thinking big (in his world 10X). In life you have to be willing to ask for the things you want; even if it’s scary. …Read More »

    Mom ❤️

    Days become weeks and the weeks become months and the months quickly turn into years ⁣⁣4 years ago I lost a very special person ❤️ Someone who truly loved unconditionally and gave everything she had to being a mom. I appreciate her sacrifice and dedication to her kids. The mission and plan never wavered regardless of the challenges we/she faced. ⁣⁣⁣She didn’t get to see me graduate and she will never get to see me getting married or having kids. On the flip side I’ll never be able to fund her retirement or buy her a home or any of the other things I hoped and dreamed to do 💔 And that’s that! That’s the painful but honest truth. Sometimes it’s tough to find the silver lining (just being real) but in this case I truly believe that there was a reason. There was a reason she endured years of pain. I choose to believe that her sacrifices and her absence has made me the person I am today… a better person and a person that is going to change so many lives ❤️ I learned so countless lessons in such a short time of having my mom and I am eternally grateful for those. ⁣⁣I have my mom to thank for a lot of things and I won’t list them here but regardless I’m grateful for them 🙏🏽 I don’t believe I had a conventional upbringing but then again who the fuck has?! I just want to shine light on these not so light topics to show people that ⬇️⁣⁣✨🔥It’s not about where you come from it’s about where you’re going and what you make of yourself 🙌🏽⁣⁣⁣Life isn’t always easy and life is definitely not fair.

    Everything is happening FOR you, not TO you. Inevitably we all have trauma. We have all experienced pain. We have all been screwed over by people in our lives that we cared about deeply. We are human and all of this is part of the human experience. However we are not helpless. We do not need saving or codling. We have the power to heal from past trauma. We have the ability to grow from trials and tribulations. And if we CHOOSE, we can turn our PAIN into POWER. ⁣⁣Nobody got great by accident or by chance. No one created their dream life with ease and effortless grace. It takes work. It takes a constant dedication and commitment to mastering the mind.

    The Success Formula

    Trauma The first step to working through any tame is to firstly acknowledge it. Trauma is so multi dimensional and I’ll let you in on a little secret… we all have it. Yup. Every single one of us! Trauma can be linked to insecurities, toxic relationships, weakness, trials/tribulations and anything that would contribute to a troublesome upbringing. Trauma often comes from our childhood and lays dormant in our bodies, minds and souls. It is an important to work through traumas and process them especially in adulthood. Doing this aids our ability to overcome adversity and to tackle challenges. It is also one of the key pieces to truing unlocking your full potential. Acceptance The second step to working through traumas is acceptance. In order to heal and later prosper you must accept the circumstances, your role and other’s roles’. This step in the process allows you to analyze your involvement and grow in future situations. It also aids in a deeper understanding of who you are and what you want. Release The third step of working through trauma is the active release of the trauma. This is best done actively instead of passively. This is where you let go of pain, frustration and anger. You acknowledge the lesson from the trauma and you let go the pain associated with it. Here you learn. Trauma release can come from a variety of modalities. Gratitude Here is the big switch from negative to positive. Here is where we find stability and homeostasis as human being. Gratitude is the key to reprograming the brain to see blessings instead of danger. This helps us take control over our lives, our circumstances and the way in which we view the world. Passion The last and final step is the ultimate key to success and fulfillment. Passion …Read More »

    The funniest thing about my life is that people think it was easy. HA I like to think I got really good because I had a lot of practice 🙌🏽 Who can relate? ⁣⁣⁣People always comment on my energy and positivity and optimism and say: “I wish I could be like that”. I find it so comical because YOU CAN… Anyone can? and you can do it in challenging situations.⁣⁣⁣You have the power to control and influence and change your state, your thoughts and your attitude at any point. You can change your life by changing just these 3 things.⁣⁣⁣At a young age I realized this and when tough times came, I reminded myself of it. Each and every one of us has the power to do this. We have the control. If you want to be happier and more carefree and truly enjoying life on the highest level YOU CAN!! Be aware of the language you use. And the questions you ask yourself. And the meaning you give different situations 🔐 Become aware of your programming so you can change it! ⁣⁣⁣YOU are the only thing that holds you back from incredible relationships, inspiring work and a life created by your own individual design! I want everyone to win. But I really want everyone to win at their own game: that takes self awareness, reflection and really figuring out what truly makes YOU happy. I hope you all make the choice and put in the effort because it’s worth it ❤️Read More »

    Money isn’t going to make you happy. Money is a tool that can amplify all areas of your life. Money can make things easier and more stress free. But after a certain point (studies show $70k) more money doesn’t equal more happiness ⁣⁣⁣So we do we chase it? Why do we chase money and cars and clothes and achievement?

    At the end of your life 3 things matter⁣⁣1. Who you were at your core⁣⁣Did you stay true to who you are at your core? What matters to you? What do you care about? We’re so influenced and persuaded by media and social norms to want “certain” things. What do you thoroughly enjoy? What makes you smile cheek to cheek? We’re pressured by our parents, our friends and social norms to want and desire certain things… a certain lifestyle… a certain car or family…but does that make you genuinely happy? Is that you living your most authentic life? who are you at your core and what is it that you truly desire? the second photo is something I wrote in 2017 and let’s be real… this shit hasn’t changed. I will always be that person because it’s who I am at my core. ⁣⁣⁣2. Who you were when no one noticed ⁣⁣Did you make the world a better place? Did you contribute to the world? Did you raise beautiful, honest and good children? Did you give time to charities or making the world a better place? Did you have some sort of purpose or mission you worked towards? Did you leave the world a better place than you found it? ⁣⁣⁣3. How happy & fulfilled you truly were⁣⁣Happiness is enjoying the current moment. The people, places and things in your life will bring your happiness – make sure you choose them wisely. Happiness is a decision. ⁣⁣Your fulfillment will come from doing something or contributing to something that’s bigger than you!

    You don’t have to have it all together⁣⁣⁣You don’t have to be perfect⁣⁣⁣You don’t always have to do the “right” thing ⁣⁣⁣At the end of the day we are all human beings just doing our best. Some are doing better than others but that’s subjective isn’t it? What is better? Are you looking at someone who has more money than you as better? Or someone that has better looks? Or more confidence? Trust me when I say, I’ve met all types of people and one thing that is consistent among everyone is they have their good days and bad days just like you! No ones life is perfect. No one has 100% good days. And just like you wouldn’t wish for someone else’s challenges don’t wish for their success either. Because it’s not yours. Yours is perfectly and uniquely designed for you. Allow yourself to let go in the process 🙌🏽⁣⁣🗣💯Let this be a reminder that you’re exactly where you need to be to learn the lessons you need to learn that will get you where you’re trying to go. Take a deep breath and enjoy this stage of your life 🙏🏽⁣⁣Enjoy it because it only happens once. We won’t ever get back this moment or this week or even this year. Focus on the now and being grateful for what you currently have + what’s on the way. Life isn’t about comparing. It’s about figuring out what YOU want and working towards that every day.

ABSOLUTELY NOT⁣⁣⁣SELF LOVE IS SELF DISCIPLINE ⁣⁣This includes doing the things you don’t want to do. Waking up early. Going to bed late. Missing social events. Sacrificing fun or pleasure. Aka putting in the work 🙌🏽 Self discipline is how you show up for yourself. If you said you were going to wake up at 5 am to meditate, do it. If you said you were going to hit the gym 4 times this week, do it. Whatever you said you were going to do, you better fucking do it!!! Why? Because our relationship with ourselves is just as important as our relationships with others. If we said we were going to meet up with a friend for lunch on Monday and we just didn’t show up…. they would be pissed. They’d be wondering where you were and why you didn’t show up? When you don’t show up for yourself you slowly stop believing in yourself. ⁣⁣⁣SELF LOVE IS CHOOSING THE HARD & RIGHT DECISION OVER THE EASY & WRONG DECISION ⁣⁣We all go through seasons in life. Sometimes we’re working on our business. Sometimes we’re working on our health and fitness. Sometimes we’re working on our relationships.

    Your biggest problem is you don’t know what the fuck you actually want!!! Everyone thinks they have this descriptive picture of where they want to be in 10 years… good relationship, successful career etc etc. The truth is we fall short in the dreaming category. 😴💭 We don’t dream like we used to as kids….The younger you had it right… Kids dream in detail and with infinite hope and belief! We also don’t articulate what it is we truly want in almost all categories. . •RELATIONSHIPS••CAREER••INCOME••FAMILY••FREEDOM••TIME FREEDOM• Until you really sit down and map it all out you have no clue what you want!

    Hi Mom, I miss you…But We’re OK

    If I could tell my mom one thing, it would be that “I’m okay” We’re all okay. Nobody collapsed. Nobody imploded. Nobody lost themselves. Everyone is okay. ❤️ I’m sure everyone would agree that it shook our world for a while but we’re doing okay here without you! Missing you comes in waves but I think you find peace in the relationships you have and the lengths they last.. Everybody asks me how I handled loosing a parent at such a young age. I dealt with it… just like everyone else who has lost a parent does. Some deal with it better than others so I guess I can only really explain what helped me..My mom knew just exactly how much I loved her..How?.Cause I was there! There for the good days and the bad days. I tell everyone this – show the people in your life how much you truly love them while you can! Support them! Catch up with them! Cry with them! Laugh with them! Life is too short to have regrets. If there’s someone you haven’t called in a while… call them. Make sure they know you care! Everyone gets tied up with the meaningless things in life. The stupid shit. People and relationships and true connection is all that truly matters. Without that stuff you have nothing! Today, I was working and saw that the sun was setting and I wasn’t going to even go outside to look at it. Sunsets and going for drives blasting music are some of my favorite simple things the world has to offer ❤️ it’s gotten me through some good times and bad time! I thought I was going to miss it but then I just said fuck it and grabbed my keys!. Turned out to be one of the …Read More »

    WE HAVE 68 DAYS LEFT!!!..If you guessed we have 68 days left of the 1st quarter of the year then you would be right!! Having goals is absolutely CRUCIAL to your success in relationships, career & overall happiness...Without goals your aimlessly trying to achieve something that you haven’t even properly defined. Sounds silly? Yes, because it is! Goal setting is what makes the greats, GREAT! I could go over a long list of highly successful individuals and the biggest and most common theme amongst all of them is… they ALL have goals!..👇🏽..GOAL SETTING: What’s ACTUALLY Important?🚨 1️⃣Tangible Goals – You need to have tangible results. This means numbers and specifics. You want more clients, how many? You want more time flexibility, how much? How often? When? 2️⃣Strategic Action Plan – What is the end goal? What is the fastest and most effective route to achieve this goal? What is the break down of action steps that are needed this month, this week, and every day this week? 3️⃣Accountability – Who are you accountable to? Who is checking in on you daily to make sure you’re keeping your promise to yourself? Who is keeping you on track and not giving into your bullshit excuses?..HOW MANY TIMES DID YOU BREAK YOUR OWN PROMISE?! You said you were going to reach out to 3 new potential customers. Did you do it? You said you were going to get your email subscription up and running? Did you do it? You said you were going to get on double the sales calls this month? Did you do it???..If you’re still reading this I would guess that you thought you would be further along by now….. 💔You thought “new year, new me”, this will be the year I make it (insert your dream here) happen!!!..LISTEN,Just because …Read More »

    No Comments
    I truly believe positivity and mental strength is a muscle that you strengthen over time. I have been working on this shit since I was in the womb.. Wish I was kidding lol But for real this type of mental strength takes time. And it’s time I’m more open and honest about my own struggles, self doubt and limiting beliefs because we all have them. And I believe that true connection comes from being honest and vulnerable! In 2018 I really, truly learned what self love is: In my relationships, my friendships and most importantly with the relationship I have with myself. I learned to BE KIND to myself in the process. Meaning; be kind with the not-so-fun stuff. I’m not going to get everything right. I’m not always going to feel motivated. I’m not always go to take the right action steps to get where I want to go… AND THAT’S OKAY!! Its ok to be going through shit. We all have different seasons in our lives, some are easier and some are harder. That’s life. But being kind to yourself in the process is crucial. I’ve learned this new phrase “ AND THAT’S OKAY”…because it is ok… no matter what you’re going through or what you’re feeling… it IS okay. Its okay to feel some type of way (positive OR Negative) about you, your life and your situation. I’ve learned a lot through my own personal journey & my client’s journies about self love and self acceptance… Something I’m going to do a post AND podcast on very very soon! SELF LOVE IS EVERYTHING… if you haven’t started this internal self work then you will love the stuff I have coming 😍🌸Read More »

    ASHLEY STAHL FUCKED ME UP THIS WEEKEND… I have done a lot of self love work in the last 365 days. But I didn’t expect to uncover a new area where I lacked self love and THIS IS WHERE ASHLEY STAHL FUCKED ME UP!!! I thought I had uncovered all of the areas of myself that lacked self love. Boy was I wrong! Ashley Stahl helped me uncover the 3rd place (after relationships & friendships) in my life in which I have NOT put myself first and that is my business… MY BUSINESS… I know liv WTF?! HOW??? You literally work for yourself…how did you not put yourself first? Well let me tell you… The self-sacrificial love I learned in my upbringing and my deep desire to help and support others has even interfered with me growing my business and scaling it to the level I know I can take it to!! How did this happen? Well like I said earlier I have always prided myself on my ability to be there for others… even at the detriment of myself. (not healthy, I know I know) Anyways, I did this in my business too. I didn’t go balls to the walls in my business and my pursuit of public speaking because I was worried that that, level of dedication to myself would take away from the love and support I would be able to give to my friends and family… It’s pretty irrational but it’s my truth. For a while I couldn’t pinpoint what exactly was holding me back. But I finally found it! Limiting beliefs are a tricky thing. They hold you back and make you believe in this false reality where you make up stupid excuses for not doing the things you know you’re supposed to! These types …Read More »

    The Struggle With Self Love & Putting Yourself 1st This weekend I realized the real reason I haven’t gone balls to the walls in my business and public speaking dreams.. THE TRUTH IS I DON’T KNOW HOW TO PUT MYSELF 1ST! My mom taught me how to love.. But maybe she taught me to love too much ?? Growing up, I learned a self-sacrificial type of love. My mom constantly sacrificed her health, well being and happiness to raise her kids. She claimed it was her “putting her children first”. I’m smiling typing this cause she really was the best. I’m so grateful to have had her as my mom for 19 long years!!⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀My mom was one tough bitch & unfortunately she didn’t let anyone help her. If you guys know me you know the apple doesn’t fall far from the tree. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀I’M THE SAME DAMN HUMAN! 🍎🌳 ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀But I refuse to make the same mistakes..I’m learning each and every day!⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀Slowly but surely letting more people in. Being open. Being vulnerable. Sharing more about my struggles in hopes to connect with even more people.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀Growing up with a self sacrificing love as my only real model of love taught me to worry about other people and their feelings more than I worried about my own.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀I constantly put other people before myself.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀Why?⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀Because I grew up thinking that, that was the way you showed others love. By being there for them to love and support them WHENEVER they needed it. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀To be honest it was actually glorified in my upbringing so in my young adult life I really prided myself on my abilities to love others even when I felt alone, tire, helpless and depressed. It’s a dangerous place to be…Im sure a few of you can relate! ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀❌Growing up I was …Read More »

    6 Things You Need To Be Reminded Of

    It’s foolish to think that there are people out there who have it “easier” than you. I used to think this way! And tbh it did nothing for me. There are always going to be people who have it easier AND people who have it worse than you. With that being said I think it’s so important to mention that EVERYONE has shit, meaning everyone is either currently going through something or maybe just getting over something! You’re not human if you haven’t experienced some kind of challenge and adversity. Trust me when I say you’re not alone. Most people have felt sadness, abandonment, disrespect, dishonesty, loneliness, fear and any of the other negative emotions that make you feel like you’re alone and all fucked up by yourself. Everyone has struggled with something. We have all had low times and high times. A few things that have been heavy on my heart… 1️⃣Let this be a soft reminder that nothing lasts forever. If you find yourself in a low season know that seasons change and you can look forward to some improvement in the coming months. 2️⃣Be kind to people. You genuinely have no idea what they’re going through and sometimes the smallest act of kindness can have the biggest impact on someone else. 3️⃣Be grateful for what you have. All the good and the bad has led you to this exact moment. You weren’t who you were a year ago or who you were 5 years ago. We’re constantly growing and changing. Be grateful and open to any and all changes, they will only make you better with time! 4️⃣ Communicate more. There is always people in you’re life who love you and want to be there for you. Talk to them about what you’re struggling with. You don’t …Read More »

    If you’re waiting for the “right time” to do that thing you really want to do. It’s now. Stop waiting for things to align or for the time to be right. The truth is most of us will go through life WANTING to travel or start a business or have an amazing passion-filled relationship but we’re too scared (fear of the unknown) to make the leap. I’m here to tell you that if you choose to live in fear and hesitation your whole life you’re not going to get what you truly want in life. Listen to your instincts, we all have them. Instead of going and back and forth with the possibilities and the pros and cons. Just make a decision. And stick to it! You want to backpack Europe? DO IT! You want to start a side hustle? DO IT! You want to leave the relationship that’s not supportive and doesn’t set your soul on fire… please DO IT! Life’s too short to not live a life you’re absolutely obsessed with 💛 It’s a lot easier to regret the things you did instead of regretting the things you didn’t do. Life is short and sometimes opportunities only come once in a lifetime. Take them! And take full advantage of them!! ✨ Life is meant to be lived ✨ QUIT PLAYING SMALL. DREAM BIG & LIVE ALL OUT!!

    Throughout the week I talk to a lot of people via phone calls or zoom. Someone suggested that I share some of these topics so that other people can get value from them too! So here goes nothing 🤷🏼‍♀️ Was chatting with a business-building entrepreneur badass mom today and this was the struggle! Her issue: she’s working to expand her consulting/coaching business and she’s struggling with trying to do all of the things and “be” who she thinks she needs to be to get where she wants. The script: She kept saying over and over again “I don’t do this the best.” “I need to improve with XX” “I love the way so-and-so does XX” We talked a lot about how you can’t compare your beginning and middle stages to someone’s final project. That’s something they’ve been working towards their whole life. All you can focus on is you taking consistent action to get yourself to where YOU want to be! My view: BE YOUR FUCKING SELF! There’s nothing you have to do or portray to attract the right people/clients/jobs/love in to your life. You literally just have to be MORE you! Stop worrying about whatever the fuck anyone else is doing and focus on the things you enjoy doing. Focus on the things that you are genuinely great at! Don’t get confused by other people’s strengths… hint: yours are different for a good reason! Tap into your own strengths, that’s where all your power lies!! Comparing ourselves to others is not going to us anywhere. Ever. We all have a different past, present and future.  Embrace your own struggles.  Embrace your own wins.  Embrace your own ideas and thoughts.  Life’s too short to pretend to be anything but yourself! Goals for 2019: become unapologetically you.Read More »

    Sometimes you have to leave a life you love to experience a life you know you will love even more.From Lakeville MA ➡️ Keene NH ➡️ Los Angeles CA. Each move I make I get a little more clear on who I am and why I was put on this earth. My main reason? To help people! To help people be more themselves and find passion in the work they do! To help people work with the dark parts of themselves and make them light again. ✨ We’ve all been through some shit and if I’m being real, none of it is an excuse to not be the person you really want to be!! Slowly but surely I’m creating a life that I am absolutely obsessed with ❤️ I hope you do the same for yourself. I had this undeniable push to go to LA. I’m glad I listened to it. If you have something pulling you (a job, a relationship, a city, a new life) DO IT. 20 years from now you’ll want to be grateful you did it instead of being regretful you didn’t.

    This Reminded Me Of You…

    I recently got a text that said “I read this and it reminded me of you” The quote read … “Some of the kindest souls I know have lived in a world that was not so kind to them. Some of the best human beings I know have been through so much at the hands of others, and they still love deeply, they still care. Sometimes, it’s the people who have been hurt the most who refuse to harden this world, because they would never want to make another person feel the way they’ve felt. If that isn’t something to be in awe of, I don’t know what is.” In 23 years, I’ve lived a lot of life. I’ve learned that how you treat people and how you make them feel is what really matters. There’s no reason to be bitter or get harsh with the world because you’ve experienced some challenges, setbacks or straight up some shit you just didn’t deserve. . Take it. Grow from it. You were made to be a better YOU because of it ✨ Life ain’t easy but it’s ALWAYS worth it. It’s not what happens it’s how you deal with it 💕 What’s one thing you’ve grown from in the last year?

    Until I finally worked with a coach I didn’t realize that I wasn’t being kind to myself. Always being busy and grinding is great and it definitely has a time and place (I mean that’s really the only way you make money and progress in life) but I didn’t realize that I was neglecting down time and things that bring me blissful enjoyment! Like most people I’ve been through some tough and challenging situations! Wether they are family problems, relationship problems or personal problems we’ve all experienced them. For me I’ve always just put on a smile and covered things up with my positive attitude. I’ve always been the “strong” one and tbh Ive loved it for a really long time. I love that people can count on me through thick and thin and I’m always here for people regardless of what’s going on in my own life. While this is good and one of my favorite traits I’ve also realized that true strength comes from letting people in and ALLOWING PEOPLE TO HELP YOU! I’ve realized that I CAN do it all by myself but it’s much more fun to do it with friends 😊 Today was a day to reflect and feel and take off from work and responsibilities.

    Super-Bulletproof Coffee Protein Shake This coffee shake is actually the greatest thing I’ve ever created! I hate to be so dramatic but it is seriously delicious and it’s packed with a ton of nutrient rich foods! Im sure youve heard of Bulletproof Coffee.. This recipe is kind of a fun twist off of that same concept. If you have not heard bulletproof coffee (it is an actual brand as well) but it’s also a coffee recipe where you blend together the following: 1. Organic Coffee 2. 1 TBS Grass Fed Butter 3. 1 TBS MCT Oil or you can use Bulletproof’s brand, Brain Octane Oil This is seriously a great way to have your coffee. I would argue it’s one of the best ways! I personally tend to be slightly sensitive to coffee…as most people are. When you’ve relied on coffee, completely cut coffee out and then found balance between the two it’s easy to realise that coffee does have some long term effects. Often times too much coffee can be problematic. Blame Society, Im serious! We live in a fast paced society where being busy and stressed is the new norm. I came up with this recipe to still have that yummy coffee flavor but without all the added caffeine. If you look coffee today vs coffee in the 70s it’s easy to see that there is a HUGE size difference and because of that there’s a also a big difference in the amount of caffeine we are consuming on a daily and weekly basis. A venti starbucks coffee has around 400mg of caffeine… what the fuck?! Thats a lot especially considering a traditional cup of coffee contains only 95 mg of caffeine. If you had one coffee a day 5 days a week back in the 70s you …Read More »

Not only are they delicious but they are also EXTREMELY good for you…like I mean jam-packed with healthy, yummy goodness! These are perfect for on the go when your needing a quick dose of protein. I either have one for a sweet treat at night or I have a few to serve as a meal replacement if i’m running low on time (or if i’m straight up just being lazy). Feel free to add anything extra to these cookies. When I cook I treat the kitchen like a science project meaning I randomly mix things together that I think will ultimately taste good. Sometimes it doesn’t go great but most of the time it’s a hit. This recipe is definitely a hit! As You Probably Know… I don’t count calories and I don’t adhere to a super strict diet. I make whole food from quality sources that I genuinely enjoy eating. I have cheat meals every so often but when you genuinely love the foods you’re eating it’s not that hard to stay on track.

    80/20 Rule I’m a big advocate for the 80/20 rule and living a healthy lifestyle that allows for some sweet and savory treats. My personal favorite cheat meal/snack is a chocolate chip cookie dough peanut butter blizzard from Dairy Queen. That is completely irrelevant but I know some people will relate on that one lol Anyways, things like pizza and pasta are things I don’t typically eat on a regular or even weekly basis. When I do eat them I like to create paleo based alternatives. For example: cauliflower pizza. LET’S BE REAL LET’S BE REAL cauliflower is NO substitute for the real thing. If you’re craving pizza EAT SOME DAMN PIZZA! BUT if you’re looking for a healthy and creative alternative try a cauliflower based pizza.

My body runs way smoother energetically and efficiently on healthy fats and clean sources of protein & of course TONS of veggies! This is another example of how I hack healthy living with fun and good-for-you foods!

    Fulfillment, Without It You’re Empty

    No Comments
    What Is Fulfillment When you’re consistently making progress and moving forward in your career, relationships, mission and own personal development you are on the path of fulfillment. Fulfillment is that feeling of achieving true happiness in all areas of your life.   Why This Matters   Tony Robbins teaches about the 6 core needs that every human being shares. They are broken up into personality needs and spirit needs. The 2 spiritual needs are made up of growth and contribution both of which play a fundamental role in an individual’s sense of fulfillment. We must feel as though we are consistently growing and also giving back to other to feel a sense of fulfillment within ourselves.   Our Instinctual Need To Grow And Give For centuries we have grown and improved and passed on the torch to show other the ropes. It’s an instinctual nature for us to guide and help others who are not yet where we are. It’s also crucial for us to continuously get better and improve. These two spiritual needs are what fuels happy and successful relationships. The more experiences we share with others the more fulfilled we become.   What Happens When You Are Not Fulfilled   Not being fulfilled leaves a feeling of emptiness and incompleteness. This can occur in any sector of your life and it can drastically affect all of the other areas. It’s similar to a domino effect when one goes down so do all the rest.   Worst Case Scenario Think about the recent awful events involving Kate Spade and Anthony Bourdain. Both of them recently took their lives at the young ages of 51 and 61. It is awful and heartbreaking to see but it shows that things can be so externally perfect yet internally it can be chaos, …Read More »

    Why You Need To Start Eating Sauerkraut

    I Eat Sauerkraut (Almost) Every Day… I post a lot on my instagram story about sauerkraut. I eat this before anything else usually early in the morning! I get a plethora of responses all the way from “Ew I don’t know how you do that” to “What is this and why is it beneficial for your health?” What Does It Taste Like If you can handle apple cider vinegar then you can surely handle sauerkraut! It’s not necessarily the most desirable taste. Day 1 is the hardest but I can assure you that it gets so much easier after that. The first time I tried sauerkraut I didn’t love it but I also didn’t hate it. For whatever reason the second day I was totally fine with it and it didn’t bother me in the slightest. Now I have it almost everyday right when I wake up. For me, I feel great knowing that I am immediately supporting my gut health by providing a nutrient rich, natural probiotic. Benefits Of Fermented Foods Sauerkraut is a fermented foods and fermented foods help to feed the good bacteria in our gut. They are a nutrient rich probiotic that helps balance the gut flora, lower inflammation and modulate the immune system. Personally, I feel less bloated and experience better digestion when I incorporate fermented foods into my diet! Who Can Fermented Foods Help Fermented foods are extremely beneficial for people with autoimmune disorders. It is also extremely helpful for people with other health conditions like alzheimer’s, diabetes, depression, anxiety, cancer and so much more!! Supporting a healthy gut microbiome will do more for your health in 2018 than any fad diet or workout regimen. “Liv can’t you just take a probiotic?” Short answer: NO A lot of probiotics on the shelves are shit. …Read More »

    You Practice “Self Love” But You Are Probably Treating Yourself Like S*!^

    When was the last time you congratulated yourself? When was the last time you told yourself how proud you were? When was the last time you say hey *insert name here* you rock and you’re a damn good person.” Probably never… That’s the sad part. And it’s also what’s wrong with so many of us: We so freely give out love to the amazing people around us and so quickly and instinctually deny ourselves from that same exact love. Self love isn’t necessarily an act of self love like its so oftenly portrayed. Self love is the treatment of yourself, by yourself, to yourself. My first ever definition and idea of self love was the stereotypical self love action which included things that you do to show you love yourself. Things like getting my nails done or getting a massage or taking your stereotypical bath with bubbles or candles. Boy, was I way off! As I grew and dove into personal development I realised I didn’t love myself at all. This was very controversial for me because I was always an extremely confident person and I very much knew my value. Even with all of that confidence I didn’t really love myself. A huge realisation for me came from analyzing how I loved other people and how I loved myself. When it came to friends and family I was endlessly supportive and encouraging. I consistently told them how much they meant to me and how wonderful I truly thought they were. In a sense I validated that they were perfect just the way they were. This is something I never did for myself… When I would fall short on a due date or not complete my unrealistic list of to-dos I would scold myself (in my head of course – …Read More »

    Self Love Sundays: Why You NEED To Do This

    No Comments
    It is so incredibly important to do things that fuel your soul. Things that energize you and recharge you. Things that push you to grow and develop. Things that make you think and reflect. Things that push you to be more present in the current moment. Things that make you feel more alive. Today was all of that combined. I listened to a bunch of podcasts, did a mindfulness meditation, ran, stretched, journaled and spent some time in nature (the beach). It forces me to reflect and plan but also to just “be”. It made me be more present and in tune with my body and mind. My self love sunday may look completely different than your self love sunday. We are all different and because of that different things will bring us happiness and energize us. Find your “things” and actively practice them. Show yourself the love you deserve by fueling your soul with these things. Make it an effort to care for yourself the way you care for others. ♦ What centers you? ♦ What calms you? ♦ What excites you? ♦ What makes you feel ‘at home’? ♦ What challenges you? ♦ What energizes you? ♦ What expands your mind? ♦ What do you love doing? How often do you do these things? What is one simple little thing that you can do today to show yourself a random act of kindness? I have this idea that life is pretty simple. What do you want more of? And what do you want less of? Experiences. Feelings. Etc Work more towards the things you want out of life and start to cut out the people, situations and tasks that bring you further away from your true happiness. Life is all about continuously growing. If you’re not growing you’re …Read More »

    It’s Not What Happens It’s How Your Deal With It

    1 Comment
    Unexpected challenges, unfair struggles, trials and tribulations, they will come and they will pass. They will shake up your world and sometimes even flip it upside down. It’s not always fair and it’s usually not expected. There will be a million times in your life where you find yourself facing a new and unwanted challenge. The good news is that these tough times never last. The bad news is that these incidents never really go away. We will always have new challenges and struggles in our lives so instead of dreading them and allowing them to deplete your energy. Try changing your mindset towards them. My amazing mother game me the advice of “it’s not what happens it’s how you deal with it”. It has become my own personal motto for 20+ years now. An improved attitude, perspective, positivity and lack of “playing the victim” will do wonders for you and any unwanted situation you may find yourself in.  …To this day its some of the best advice I’ve ever gotten. It means that the issue or challenge or tough time you are currently facing is simply just an issue. We will have a million issues over the duration of our lives. The issues will come and go and they are much less significant in comparison to the way we choose to deal with them. When a less than desirable situation presents itself do you sit there and ask yourself “Why me? What did I do to deserve this?” If so, you may benefit from this change in perspective. Your attitude and your approach to the problem says more about you, your character, and in turn, the outcome than anything else. Approaching any situation with a positive and powerful attitude can drastically change not only the outcome of the scenario …Read More »

    Sometimes when we face challenges we think it is absolutely the most devastating thing that you could possibly be going through. It seems to completely take over your thoughts and its extremely draining to your mood. In the pain and challenges I’ve endured I’ve learned a few things. One of the most important things I’ve learned was that the best and really only way to get over something is to find a new source of happiness. Whether it’s a relationship, a death, a job, or anything else. The best way to get over it is to switch your focus to a new form of happiness. If you lost your job maybe take some extra time to enjoy and appreciate your friends and family. If you’ve recently gone through a break up or the lost of a loved one maybe try reconnecting with your friends or diving into a new project at your job. It sounds simple but it really works. You have endless streams of happiness in your life and when one fades out it’s time to switch focus and fuel a new source of happiness.Read More »

    Happy Mothers Day: A post from Instagram

    No Comments
    An important message and caption from my Mother’s Day post on Instagram: My friends & family are always so confused with my ability to go through holidays, birthdays and life evens with such ease after losing someone so influential and important in my life!! There’s so many big life moments that my moms already missed and although I wish she was here to share the experience I’m genuinely not sad about it and I guess that’s kind of opposite of what most people would expect. Birthdays and holidays don’t really get me worked up or upset because I have absolutely zero regret when it comes to my mom. I like to think that I “left it all out on the field” My brother and I were there for years and years helping and supporting a single mom who struggled with more diseases and health issues than you could count! She constantly worried if she was going to get sick and leave her two kids without any parents. She always wondered if we were going to be ok without her so growing up we had a lot of meaningful life conversations. We talked about the important shit – which included how grateful, lucky and appreciative we were to have each other and to be raised by such an amazing woman ❤ We were there through the good times but most importantly through the bad times! Often times we forget that the people we surround ourselves with and the relationships we create are the MOST important thing about this beautiful life we live! There’s not a single thing I wish I said or something more I wish I had done. I truly left it all out on the field. I was there for the 11pm panic attacks and the 6am doctor appointments …Read More »

    Who Is Larry? And what does he have to do with the stories you tell yourself?!

    No Comments
    Today I met a very kind man named Larry. You’re probably wondering where the heck is this going Liv?? Today I want to talk a bit about my interaction with Larry and how that relays to the things you consistently tell yourself! It’s going to be a quick dive into the power of self talk. What do you tell yourself about your strengths, weaknesses, looks, personality and ability? Is there something you always say you’re not good at? What are the common themes you see with the way you treat yourself and the way you talk to yourself (aka your self talk)? This example is extremely simple but I’m sure you can all relate. Today I had a wonderful little conversation with a man named Larry who was parking near my building for the Red Sox game. He started asking if he was in anyone’s spot and if he would be ok and not getting towed where he was parking. After I assured him he would have no problems he started telling me about how he brings a handicapped man and his wife to the games a few times during the season. I thought to myself “wow that’s super sweet what a nice guy”. Anyways, when our quick convo ended he introduced himself and like every other introduction I shook his hand and immediately defaulted to telling him my name and that it was nice to meet him. BOOM. Just like that I totally forgot his name. I couldn’t remember it for the life of me. I grabbed my bag and got out of my car and began walking to my apartment thinking “wow Liv you’re so bad at remembering names” Immediately I snapped out of it. This is the same old story I always tell myself. I always say …Read More »

    Self Love IS Self Discipline: Gym Edition

    No Comments
    Why I go..   The gym is something I’ve always enjoyed doing but never quite stuck to it long enough to see results. In the last 6 months I’ve seen a whole new level discipline from myself that I never in a million years would have imagined. Although you may think it was a new found dedication, motivation or determination, fortunately, it had nothing to do with any of those 3 things. It had to do with self love which I equate with self discipline.   Within the last half of a year I’ve really became committed to self love in all forms. I will discuss this further in future blog posts. For me in my life, self love looks like doing extra work and sacrificing fun on the weekends to play a much longer game. Its self discipline for a desirable and fulfilling future. Its purpose is to achieve an end goal. To achieve certain goals you need to make sacrifices somewhere. Until recently I didn’t quite understand the extremely powerful connection between self love and self discipline.   The single Youtube video that made this drastic and life shattering connection was actually by the actor Will Smith. He talked about how self discipline is truly self love and when you really love yourself and want the best for you and your future you behave differently. You act in a manner that supports and encourages the future you. If you’re even remotely lost, confused, or unconnected to self love, I highly recommend this short clip! Watch Here    Something I discussed with my good friend Morgan, a trainer over at the Equinox in Chestnut Hill is standards. It is very easy to tell a person’s diet and exercise standards because it is apparent in their physique. We discussed the …Read More »

    I was once asked the question: “If you could do anything to change the world, what would you do?” To be honest, I think I would change people’s outlooks on their own lives.
