Wow — it’s already the end of August, so we are two thirds of the way through 2015…YIKES! In light of that sobering fact, I’d like to ask you three important questions:

1. Do you want to know how to be more positive?
2. Do you want more good to flow into your life?
3. Do you want to achieve more, make real progress, and be happy?

If you’re head is nodding yes — and you’re hungry for big change this fall (or spring for my Southern Hemisphere girls!) — then you’re going to love today’s episode of Jacquie Straight Up.

And quite honestly, even if you do feel pretty good about your life, I believe there’s always a next level to reach for.

Ouch! I’m incredibly stiff and sore today…and as you’ll see on today’s Jacquie Straight Up, I’m blaming it all on serendipity!

Yes, SERENDIPITY. Those times when the “coincidence” is just too good to be merely labeled as such.

Not a believer in these daily miracles that are happening all around us?

Well, today I encourage you to suspend judgement for just a moment, and watch my latest video. I’ll prove to you that serendipity is alive and well and working in your life as we speak.

I think it’s time to sit up and take notice of all the little miracles happening every day — our success and happiness may just depend on it!

Plus…I’ll explain why I’m in such agony, but in a good way.

What holds you back from success?

What keeps you from being BOLD and stepping into your greatness?

What prevents you from declaring what you really want, and then going out and claiming it?

For 99% of us, the answer boils down to one simple word: F-E-A-R.

Fear of failure. Fear of rejection. Fear of what others may think. Even fear of success, just to name a few.

No doubt about it, it’s a big problem, and on today’s Jacquie Straight Up, I’m taking fear head-on.

Too many people live their lives without getting close to their full potential — all because they’re too afraid — and we all lose out because of it. This has to stop!

Discover my life-altering truths on how you can look fear straight in the eye, and then fly in the face of it.

So, I’m having a bad hair day. It’s probably from the extreme heat here in the California desert and also because I danced my face off for about 30 minutes before recording this week’s episode of Jacquie Straight Up!

I feel as though I look like Kramer on that episode of Seinfeld when their shower-heads were swapped for the “low flow” variety. Kramer’s hair, which normally stood straight up, was as flat as a pancake. He looked like such a goof. Kind of like me in this week’s video!

Anyway, today I want to share with you a brilliant and fun way to release our “feel good” hormones. Needing a quick boost, an extra shot of motivation, or simply an excuse to be a little nuts?

Change is tough, no doubt about it! And because of that, we put it off even when we know how important it is, right?

We put it off because we are afraid to leave our comfort zone or we feel overwhelmed by what it will take to change.

The good news is this is what today’s Jacquie Straight Up is all about: how to deal with the “overwhelm” and activate change without feeling “stuck” or scared.

It’s an amazing, empowering tool. And it works. Click above to watch.

Too many people waste their lives by being too afraid — or too overwhelmed — to make those changes they know they need to make.

Don’t be one of those people! Take control of your overwhelm, and deal with it one bite at a time, even if it’s just five minutes a day.
