You can achieve anything you are willing to work for. Don't let anyone tell you any differently. Don't let someone else make you give up on your goals and dreams because they aren't happy with themselves and your dreams make them feel inferior or insecure. There is enough room for everyone to shine so shine brighter than you ever thought was possible.
I was (still am) a huge fan of Tiger Woods. I couldn't be more ecstatic when he claimed his 5th Masters Title this past weekend.
Can you imagine the kind of grit, determination and mental stamina it took to overcome all he'd been through this past decade?
Fortunately, most of us won't suffer career setbacks of this magnitude. But we do experience our own mini-defeats and failures.
This week on #secondbreaks , I share 3 things that helped me the most when overcoming professional adversity.

🌍🔥Extinction Rebellion Climate protests in London ~ 15.04.19-29.04.19 🔥🌍 Poppy and I (our small planet of action team 🙌🏻🌍) went into London today and we saw some of the protesters/rebels at Marble Arch and Oxford Street/Circus.🌳 🌷It was so promising and hopeful to see such a large amount of people supporting the call for change,we MUST make a change NOW🌷
Protests and marches can be a great way to get the attention of our government and population and call for change. Please remember peaceful, respectful and non-violent methods are the best and most ethical way ☮️💟 🌊WE ARE IN A CLIMATE AND ENVIRONMENTAL CRISIS and we can fix this if we act now and make the necessary changes🌊 🌏Our generation of children didn’t do the damage but we will suffer the consequences🌍 ~ Olivia

If not now...when?.
Truly something to consider. Whatever are you waiting for? This stuck in my heart just after I spent the last 2 1/2 months with my Pops before he passed on. It was an intense time of nursing and loving... SO MUCH LOVE! Love was the word we used every 15 minutes. 😊❤️.
I have lived an interesting life, one of taking chances, living in gorgeous and interesting places. I had started in Manhattan Beach, CA then ventured to Venice and then to Maui and finally to NYC. However, what had ALWAYS been in my heart was Europe. France on particular and specifically, Paris.
As I took refuge in the little hospice chapel, so pretty and peaceful when I needed a little recoup I began to think “If not now, when?” I was watching a life fade and my Pops had a great life, no regrets, lived his life fully. Yet there I was, 45 (I believe - remembering years isn’t my thing), and while I was living my dreams I had never hopped overseas to where I had dreamed of being since childhood.
After my Dad died I headed back to NYC and made some MAJOR changes and shifts. Not only did I buy my ticket for my first trip to Paris that upcoming Fall, but I also transitioned into fully running my business in NYC. I gave notice where I was working PT and opened my own shop in @themarketnyc . .
It’s been six years since my Pops passed on and my mantra has continued to be “If not now, when?” I been to France now four times (writing you from France now), just got back from London. I’ve had a shop in the Marketplace in NYC, left that, changed how I ran the structure of my business, have done NYFW, PFW, and LAFW, experienced huge highs and lows as any business can bring and have taken chances larger than life sometimes (how it feels).
So my question to you today is... are you living your full potential? Are you pursuing your dreams, are you already living them? If not, consider why? What will it take for you to take a leap of faith? .
If not now, when? .
Just my 2 cents. ❤️.

Have you ever thought about exactly what this word entails?
Webster's Dictionary defines strength as: The quality or state of being strong; ability to do or to bear; capacity for exertion or endurance, whether physical, intellectual, or moral; force; vigor; power; as, strength of body or of the arm; strength of mind, of memory, or of judgment.
So let's dig a bit deeper.
What state do you need to be in to recognize your own strength?
How do you recognize your own ability to increase your endurance?
Have you started on your journey to discover your inner strength?
I have and I'd love to share my journey with you! #innerpeace#strength#reflection#innerstrength#ifnotnowwhen#endurance

“Our past is our greatest blessing- for with it we can avert death and misery for others.” AA Big Book (quote paraphrased by me) 📖 Sometimes all I can hold onto, the only answer to “Why did this happen?” or “Why did I put myself through all that?” is the knowing that I will be able to help someone else in a way that no one else can❤️ It’s not a panacea, and doesn’t justify abuse, but at the end of the day we’ve got to get out of victimhood and into empowerment- and knowing that my experience can shine a light for others does help me make sense of things. So, I’ve been through a lot, and I’ve got some experience, strength, and hope. If you’re struggling, maybe this is god-with-skin-on giving you a sign to reach out for help✨🙏 If not me, someone you trust, and if not now, when? #alcoholicsanonymous#bigbook
