The Big Deal About Appreciation

The Big Deal About Appreciation

Expressing appreciation works.

I prefer the word APPRECIATION over grateful. What about you?

Little did I know all the science behind my signature formula when I discovered these daily patterns that play a huge role in my achievements.


It takes a huge amount of fortitude and motivation to accept what IS— especially when you don’t like your current circumstance or situation…


when you work wisely and effectively as best as you possibly can with the awareness and acceptance of your circumstances; you discover that the resources are at your disposal, both inner and outer, to heal, redirect, grow, and transform what you’re ready to transform.

Expressing appreciation works. It’s why we spend 4 weeks diving deep into this science-backed practice within my masterclass. Its neuroscience and when you practice appreciation, new neural connections are made and strengthened.

This makes appreciation more likely to occur in the future and experiencing abundance more often.

Neuropsychologists are known to say, “Neurons that fire together, wire together”. Over time, you’ll find yourself happier, calmer, and experiencing more joy. It’s science, my friends.

What are some of the things you appreciate? Who, what…

For me, I’m so appreciative of my two girls Donna and Jennifer, we’ve been pushing each other in our businesses since.

1. I appreciate my warm coffee with my coconut oil in it. I feel like it’s my spa in a cup.

2. I appreciate my husband and his hard work. He just drove 10 hours to NC for a biz trip and doesn’t even complain.

3. I appreciate my twins, pushing me STILL on my patience, LOL. I appreciate the 5,4,3,2,1, MEL method to help me breathe through my frustration and shift gears before reacting “poorly”.

4. I appreciate ALL OF YOU! OMG, the trust and support in my teachings for you to read, watch and hear, I VERY MUCH APPRECIATE YOU. I, of course, appreciate this space and the opportunity to inspire you on Identity.

I could go on and on my friends… this feels so good and it’s so natural to me because of the work and the “slight edge” that I implement.

It’s your turn. Give it to me to. Share your appreciation.

Love you!


PS. Enrollment is open in my masterclass. Many women feel stuck and lack the energy and direction they crave to experience their fullest life, both emotionally and physically.

They want to consistently leap out of bed in the morning ready to tackle the day with excitement and anticipation, but instead, they find themselves feeling sluggish and just go through the motions of their day. The Discover Your Power & Ignite Your Energy coaching program will turn all of that around.

In just 12 weeks, I will hold your hand and guide you through our signature Get All A’s formula, so that you can re-ignite your energy and passionately move forward to achieve your dreams and goals. Enroll HERE Today!

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 the answers 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.

I’ve learned to accept the responsibility for my decisions and results. With nutrition, weight loss, muscle gain, business success, marriage communication, etc. What effort am I giving and is it consistent?

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 the digital life and how there is so much opportunity. There are so many ways for all of us to learn from one another, succeed and grow. I appreciate my coaches who push me to discover my powers.

Share with us one of your most rewarding achievements in life? Tell us not only what makes YOU most proud but also share the goals and dreams that you still have.

This life, being a mother and a wife. I’m extremely blessed and proud of the effort and energy I continue to give it and provide. I enjoy it and continue to grow every day.
