I’ve been reminded year after year on how crucial it is for your success to implement the act of giving back—to serve others in various ways. We all need support in life and the Universe appreciates you and rewards you along the way.
I teach my clients all of the ways to express appreciation and gratitude so that they are in a more positive mindset to focus on how and why to serve others—and yes, they are different.
Before we dive in, you must remember that in order to serve others WELL, you MUST ALWAYS BE SERVING YOURSELF.
Serving in the way of implementing and practicing “The Get All A’s” formula, self-help, personal growth work, nutrition, exercise, love, laughter, confidence, and happiness!
As you continue to enhance these feelings, experiences, and skills you will only serve others even more.
So why do you want to serve others?
Let me ask you, did you get where you are today alone?
I bet not.
I’m sure you’ve had friends to talk to, teachers, colleagues, or coaches help guide you, right? How did you get the job you have now? How did you get the clients? How did you lose weight?
A trainer in a program, a coach who got you started? How did you become more aware? How did you finish school? How did you buy a home, purchase a car, or anything else?
By others serving and supporting you. I’m 99% sure, right? And if there was nobody serving out in the world, where would be all be?
If we didn’t have the Tony Robbins, Oprah, Brene Brown, Mike Strahan, Robin Roberts, ALL of the Non-profits, many of us would not be where we are today.
Serving is paying it forward, which ultimately pays it back to you 10x. I promise.
And as you appreciate more and more people and opportunities, serving others comes naturally and often. It’s like when you see a car you want, you see it all the time on the road, right?
Serving others helps you heal, grow, evolve, and reflect. I always say that the weekends I travel to host weekend retreats/workshops—I come home feeling and thinking that was more for me than those I just transformed. Because I’m transforming too.
Just like with you and all of the women in my programs. I’m your coach and giving you my all, but your thoughts, beliefs–our relationship is pushing me to be better as well. Same for the coaches I have; my struggles, questions, obstacles, and beliefs, push them to be better and grow.
It’s a beautiful thing because even though I have helped others with the same thoughts you have, you will never be the same person and think the exact same way. Right?
What if you wrote down all of the thoughts you have about what you still need to feel happier, more loved, more energy and you made it your mission to provide and serve those things to others?
And what does that look like? How would you like that to be delivered back to you? GIVE it out and it will come back to you!
There will always be somebody who needs YOU.
You will never be the more poor woman
You will never be the loneliest.
You will never be the most depressed
You will never be the angriest or most frustrated
You will never be the most confused
You will never be the most beautiful or smartest
Somebody could always be served and inspired.
So let’s remember to serve when we can—especially ourselves and the more we implement and practice, the stronger we all become.
Identity Magazine is all about guiding women to discover their powers of Self-Acceptance, Appreciation, and Personal Achievement.
We ask that every contributor and expert answer the Identity questions in keeping with our theme. Their answers can be random and in the moment or they can be aligned with the current article they have written. In that way, and as a team, we hope to encourage and motivate each other, thus inspiring you to Get All A’s.
What have you accepted within your life, physically and/or mentally? Additionally, what are you still working on accepting? Now, we’re not talking about resignation, rather stepping into, embraced, and owned.
Over the years, I’ve accepted the pleasure of giving back and serving others. I’ve accepted others helping me and knowing when to ask for help. Life is no fun alone—so the quicker we all can get on board to support one another instead of fighting… it will impact others.
Appreciation is everything. What have you learned to appreciate about yourself and/or within your life, physically and mentally? On the other hand OR in contrast, are there elements of who you are that you’re still working on appreciating?
I appreciate my life, my support team, my thoughts, and beliefs. I appreciate my power to show up and go for what I want in life. I’m still working on appreciating the struggles and obstacles—as I know they are important for growth, I don’t HAVE to love it. LOL.

I’m blessed that I have so much I’m proud of at the age of 38. I’m really proud of not giving up to go after all of my goals. I’m proud of my twins. Next goal is building our dream home.
