Wake Up to Live with Desiree Leigh

Stepping over what's been held back in your life, broken promises or regrets, as well as resentments, anger, and pain take away your power. To reclaim your power, start with small promises to yourself and KEEP them!

To give you an example, think about a diet or an exercise program. When have you promised yourself that you were going to lose that last 10 or 20 pounds? Yet over and over again you beat yourself up after you break that promise to yourself, saying that you are weak or have no will-power. Then you justify yourself by saying, it's hereditary, it's in my genes, or I'm just like my mother/father, or work/children/friends got in the way. The excuses and stories are endless! But what matters the most, is that your self-esteem and your confidence begin to dwindle.

  1. Begin by confronting what is really going on in your life. Take what is happening in the background of your life and bring it to the foreground. FACE your Demon!
  2. From that point, be REAL with yourself. Start writing down what your challenges are, and why you break your promises. Again be real with yourself. Stop hiding from the truth!
  3. Then ask yourself whether or not you want to continue to live with yourself and your lack of integrity.
  4. Ask yourself,"Is it working for me?" And if not, "What do I need to do to make it workable?" and to create more integrity and harmony in your life.
  5. Take 3 action steps immediately. Not tomorrow or later on in the week, Now!
For example, write down the days you will be exercising, the exact hours and the exact days. There are no maybe's! If unexpected events come up, you can be flexible, but for now write down exactly when you can do your workout. Set up a plan on what types of meals you will prepare for the next week and create a shopping list where needed. Then go shopping. Cook and freeze the food according to single portions or go and buy healthy frozen meals. Whatever it takes and whatever works. Just Do It Now!

What you hold back in life, broken promises, and regrets are all caused by the lies that you keep telling yourself over and over again. "I can't do it," "I have not will-power," "It's in my genes," etc, etc. This leads to blame, judgment and excuses that weaken you, lowering your self-esteem and confidence.

Deal powerfully with reality through confrontation. Stop stepping over what's holding you back!
