At 211º Water is HOT. At 212º it BOILS. With Boiling water comes STEAM. STEAM can power a Locomotive. It’s your Life. YOU are Responsible for YOUR Results. IT’s TIME to TURN UP THE HEAT.
These words ring in my ears to this day. They were recently spoken to me by Damien Elston, my coach. He said them in front of over 2,500 people right before he gave me an Award. Do you know what that award was for? 212º of ACTION.
I was so surprised, I don’t even recall what I said on stage or what happened after this moment. I was honoured. I am all about Action and the results that come with taking the right Actions! When Damien presented me with this award not only was I grateful, I was also completely humbled at the same time! This award was also presented to Randi Zuckerberg, Zuckerberg Media, for her commitment and the way she changes the world. It was also presented by Damien to Dr. Nido Qubein, president of High Point University. This is one of the most precious awards and recognitions I have ever received.
You will often hear me say that Action is the only thing that makes a difference. This I learned many years ago when I first started my coaching career. I was very lucky early in my life to be blessed with challenges. To have to fight my way through adversity. To have to take different actions if I wasn’t getting the results I wanted. The adversities didn’t squash me. The challenges didn’t kill me. They made me stronger. They made me the woman, mother and business leader that I am today. I learned early on in my career and in my life, that I am Responsible for My Results.
In working with my coach Damien, he helped me to let go of my fears. To let go of the things that were getting in the way. If you met me for the first time, you might actually think that nothing get’s in my way. That’s not true. I have thoughts and feelings just like everyone else. Often those thoughts are negative, it’s been proven that the human mind has between 70,000 – 80,000 thoughts a day. Approximately 85% of those thoughts are negative. Negativity and Self Doubt. Fear. Failure. Embarrassment. All things that could and would get in my way if it wasn’t for my coaches early in my career and my coaches today. We all have those things. It’s what you DO about it that determines the level of Results you will produce in your life and in your business.
Everyday I have practices in place that help me combat the negativity and create myself as #212º. Meditation, Exercise, calling my coaches. Being grateful for the beautiful and blessed life that I have. We all have adversity. We all have thoughts and feelings that will hold us back. To truly take responsibility for our lives and our results we must turn up the heat and never allow those thoughts and feelings to interfere with who we truly are and our real purpose. Everyday you get to choose the kind of Human you will be today. You get to create and invent yourself newly everyday. What will you choose? Who will you decide to be today? Will you be a 212er or will you be stuck in the past and the constraints that your thoughts place upon you?

Will you be the stream or the rock?
Coaching is the one thing that I have found that truly makes a difference. It’s time to Turn up the Heat. Get the results and the life you want!
