5 Steps to Reclaiming Your Life



“How do you do it?”

“How do you stay positive?”

“How do you move through every day?”

My secret: There are five simple steps to reclaiming your life back.

Step 1: Be in gratitude.

The first step to reclaiming your life is to practice waking up in gratitude. I look for all the great things that are in my life, whether it's my beautiful little puppies, whether it's my businesses, my partner. Whatever it is, I'm grateful for it because in truth, that is something to be grateful for. We have so many things. I have a roof over my head, I have heat, I have air conditioning. Even if I didn't have those things; let's say I didn't have a house; let’s say I had an apartment, let's say I was sleeping on someone's couch (which I have done). The point is that you have to find gratitude no matter where you live. If you live in a box, be grateful for the box. If you live in a mansion, wow, be grateful for the mansion. If you live in a three bedroom house with seven people, be grateful for that because it really does set a tone every day.

It's kind of like waking up and going, “Oh, my life sucks.” Well, guess what? It's going to suck. So, I wake up every day and say, “You know what, I have gratitude today. I'm grateful for the things I have.”

Step 2: Set intentions

Now, you say, “What the hell is that?” Well, setting intentions is where I will say, “Today I'm going to have a great day. Today I'm going to motivate myself, I'm going to move forward, I'm going to do things that benefit my life, that kind of give me some kind of “Yay.” So, I'm going to make those changes and make those choices. I'm going to set an intention that I'm going to have a great day. I'm going to say, “Hey, Universe, I'm going to have a great day today. I ask you to assist me in this.” We kind of partner up so I feel like that's what I do; I partner with the Universe.
