Success Mindset

Fire it Up, Bitch!

Fire it Up

Do you ever just feel as though you’re only really half alive anyway?

I sometimes wonder if I’ve reached even 10% of my capacity to get shit done and know that I’m making it count.

I’m not talking about the mundanity of ‘getting shit done’, of checking tasks off the list or clearing out my inbox.

I’m talking about doing something THRILLING, something EXCITING, something so damn energising and adrenalin inducing I can barely BREATHE through it but by damn do I know I’m awake.

You know?

I mean seriously –

When was the last time you did something so FULL ON, that got you so fired UP, where you had no idea if you’d even pull it OFF and THEN YOU DID?

(And did you feel awesome doing it?)

Sometimes I really have to question what it is we’re afraid of, or whether we simply forget we’re capable of so much more.

And I’ll be honest with you here –

When it comes to what others are doing, how they live their life, how they’re serving or creating in business, what they say they want and stand for and then what they’re in fact DOING, I judge my little heart out all day long.

Not because I think I know better than anybody what THEY know about themselves but because I see them saying one thing is important to them but then basically doing everything humanly possible to continue on a path that takes them in the opposite direction.

A path away from freedom, because they think that way they’re staying safe.

A path of choosing NOT to choose, because they beileve they really can’t.

A path of not fighting, not pushing, not LEAPING.

What it really is, is a path of not living.

A path of saying no thanks God! I see this incredible world with these incredible opportunities and whilst I can see that in theory anything is POSSIBLE, I think I’ll just stay right here in my comfortable little corner and press repeat on the same exact day I just lived.


And it makes me so damn ANGRY, but who am I really angry at?

Other people who I feel are squandering their lives, foregoing possibliity, foregoing living their GIFTS?

Or me?

The truth is I’m angry at me.

But I’m kinda angry at you as well, because if you are the kinda woman to be reading my stuff then you get it.


And you know that when I say I wonder if I haven’t reached even 10% of my capacity here, I wonder why I still seem to hold back, pull back, keep the gloves on I’m also wondering the same shit about YOU.

And I’m wondering when both of us – you and me sister – are going to wake the fuck up and realise that life is NOW baby, that the FUTURE is now, that we’re already exactly where we PLANNED to be and that if we want to end up somewhere different, bigger, better, somewhere we feel damn ALIVE, then we better create and LIVE a new plan now.

And it’s not enough.

It’s just not ENOUGH to compare who you’re being and what you’re doing to the way the rest of the world is living.

(And yes, here comes the judgment again, but remember we ONLY JUDGE OTHERS HOW WE JUDGE OURSELVES)

Because what the REST of the world thinks is living – and often this will include even those closest to you – is really VERY little more than just existing.

If I get the right job I can buy the right mortgage I can have the kids I can send them to a good school I can throw nice dinner parties I can buy some nice things and have a decent car and go on a trip once a year and I can know exactly what I need to do each day to keep all of this ticking and I myself will just keep ticking along and sometimes in the rare and VERY odd moment I will stop and wonder –

What the fuck happened to all those dreams I once had.

– but then I will put it aside because hey! There’s washing to fold and bills to be paid and I got to be RESPONSIBLE, I got to create a FUTURE for myself and my family, I got to do what I gotta DO don’t you understand?

And the answer is yes.

I do understand.

You HAVE to do what you have to do.

But do you have to do what you think you have to do in order to have what you really want and NEED?

You want safety, security, a guaranteed (as much as is possible) future for yourself and your family?


Don’t freaking ASK someone or something to pay you pennies in exchange for your LIFE, so that in 40 years you can then try LIVING that life.

And it’s always pennies.

A million dollar income, if it requires you to dance like a monkey, is pennies.

But I digress.

This is not about those who would live like the world has them live, although they do get me ANGRY.

Anger at others, like we’ve seen, is of course always anger at yourself.

So what am I really afraid of here, what am I FIGHTING?

I’m afraid of me never really going ALL out.

And I’m afraid of the same for you.

And this thing with the WORLD and why I keep coming back to what those IN it are doing, is that they make it so damn EASY for you and I to think we are DOING ENOUGH.

When we KNOW we are not.

The truth –

You are more productive than anybody you know.
You get more done.
You push yourself harder.
You hold yourself to higher standards than ANYBODY.
You do REPEATEDLY what others won’t so that you can live a life they can’t.
You challenge yourself in these ways not just in business but in just about ALL areas of life, and the ones where you’re currently NOT pushing yourself you torment yourself daily with the knowledge that you COULD be.
(And you will)

The truth is, you are superwoman.

You’re ALREADY doing in a day what most won’t do in a week, a month, a year.

You’ve ALREADY put yourself throught the kind of mental and emotional battle that most won’t truly face in a LIFETIME.

So it’s easy to agree, in a way, when those around you tell you to slow down, you’re doing enough, you’re too hard on yourself, why won’t you just BREATHE.

It’s easy, in a way, to wonder if maybe they’re right. If your PROBLEM is you’re trying to do too much, all at once if not sooner, you expect too much and your standards are high.

But the REAL truth here is no honey.

They’re not high enough.

And no honey.

The LAST thing you need is to slow down and breathe.

What you NEED is to wake up and LIVE.

What you NEED, what you CRAVE, what is almost like a shameful INDULGENCE for you and SUCH a guilty pleasure is the absolute and unequivocal knowledge that SUPERWOMAN CAN EAT YOUR DUST.

What you need?


Because this, this what you’re doing right now?

This isn’t living, is it?

Not for YOU, not FULLY.


And I’m being harsh, perhaps more so than usual, because hey! I GET that you ARE doing a lot, pushing a lot, you’re creating, you’re going for it, you’re AHEAD OF THE PACK.

But baby you were never part of the pack anyway.

So you really shouldn’t GIVE a fuck how you compare with any of the PACK.

And you really CANNOT give a fuck how far you have come and how much you ARE doing if the REALITY is that deep down within you know you’ve barely picked up pace here.


[pq] There is no comparision when it comes to living YOUR true destiny. [/pq]

And you’re only racing yourSELF.

But are you winning, in the way you want to be?

Are you going for the crazy chance, the insane shot, the leap you probably won’t make BUT YOU DO IT ANYWAY?

Or are you just loping along, staying on the path you can see and therefore believe in, allowing yourself to believe that because you ARE ahead of the ‘pack’ and you are DIFFERENT, that that’s enough.

Slow and steady doesn’t win the race if it doesn’t require you to be ALIVE.

And here’s the thing –

There is nothing – NOTHING – you can conceive of that you can’t already do.

But if you want to bring that stuff to life and live with the ENERGY deserving of going ALL out for your dreams then you’re going to have to shake things up a little more.

You’re going to have to see your current limits – in business, with money, in fitness, in health, in LIFE – and you’re going to have to RAISE them to where it’s so damn scary that you can’t even BREATHE just thinking about it.

To where your heart is pounding and your nerves are going CRAZY and your blood is COURSING with the feeling of FIRE WITHIN that NOBODY can turn off.

To where you wonder –

Will I make it?!

Can I?!

Do I really DARE?!


And then you DO, because you ALWAYS do what you decide to do.

And THAT is what we’re talking about here really, isn’t it?

You ALWAYS do what you DECIDE to do.

And it always turns out EXACTLY as it was intended to.

So why don’t you freaking well DECIDE gorgeous?

Decide (and I’ll join you!) to stop playing it so SAFE.

To stop WAITING to push.

To stop doing something that SCARES you only once in a blue moon.

And to START going like your LIFE DEPENDS UPON IT.

Like you’re living for not just SECURITY and MONEY and a nice HOUSE because really, right now? The stuff you’re chasing is MOSTLY still external safety net stuff you think you need. And that shit ain’t never gonna get you happy, not really.

You might THINK you’re bringing meaning to it and perhaps you are but WHAT DO YOU REALLY WANT TO FEEL AGAIN?

And when will you?

Me, I want to feel aive, on fire, fired up and I want to fire OTHERS up as well.

I want to feel scared, can I do it, am I really and then I want to go and DO IT anyway because of COURSE I will once I decide to.

I want to be so damn energised and enthralled with what I’m working on I can barely sleep, can barely breathe, am BUZZING with disbelief and AWESOME belief that I’m actually doing it.

I want to leap so often and so far and not care if I fall down and not even care if I am BROKEN because I am SUPERWOMAN and whoEVER I choose to be and like the Terminator I will ALWAYS BE BACK but I can only come BACK if I first go out and I mean ALL out.


If your goal is to beat the NORMAL, well you already did that long ago.

But if your goal is to beat YOU, and NEVER STOP, then honey?

We got work to do.

It’s time to wake up sister.

It’s time to pick up the PACE.

It’s time to start seeing yourself in your minds eye as a gladiator, a warrior, a woman with a mission so damn strong and so damn burning that the world ITSELF can fall all around her and she will just. keep. going.



Without pause.

Without hesitation.

Into the fray.

Into the fear.

Into the God damn BATTLE.

It’s time to get fired UP bitch. And start living like you know who you are and what you are MADE of.

Because this? This was just the warm up.

Now we go to war.
