Cold Meds 2

I have no video for you today ’cause I have a nasty cold — I don’t feel good, I look bad, and I sound even worse!

It pisses me off when I get colds because I eat my fruits and vegetables, I’m healthy, I work out every day, and I take my vitamins! So I’m like, “What the hell?”

Then I remember what my own life coach taught me many years ago and what I know to be true:

When you get minor bugs or short bouts of depression, it’s the Universe stopping you in your tracks and demanding that you take a break.

When you think back to the times that you’ve been slayed by a bug, isn’t it usually when “you can least afford to be sick?” In other words, at those times when life is particularly stressful or frenetic, and you think you really need to be on your game?

My NAKED face.

Or, in other words, my face with no makeup.

Yup, that’s me coming at you today: hot and sweaty on my treadmill, naked face and all, having just finished my morning workout.

And I gotta say: I love today’s Jacquie Straight Up episode. Here’s why:

Last week, I talked about how getting sweaty — exercising regularly — is crucial to living up to your full potential. It’s really that important!

So, in light of this, I wanted to share with you my amazing, quick cardio workout, one that I KNOW you can pull off, regardless of your fitness level. I do this very workout many mornings of the week, when I’m not out running or hiking the trails.

Welcome to week two of my special “6 S’s to FABULOUS” series on Jacquie Straight Up! This week, it’s all about the “S-W-E-A-T!” (If you missed last week’s episode on ‘”Surroundings,” catch it here.)

Let me jump right in with a bold statement, one that I know is true: your full potential will ALWAYS remain untapped until you exercise regularly, every day of the week. (Well, aim for at least five days, but I recommend six.)

Regular exercise impacts your body, your soul, and your mind, and is critical for your success.

Not convinced? Let me explain in today’s episode. Click above to watch.

I should also point out that being fabulous has nothing to do with feeling “better” than anyone else or portraying an egotistical sense of superiority.

I’m excited! There is something extra awesome happening on today’s Jacquie Straight Up: I’m sharing my “6 S’s to FABULOUS!” (Who doesn’t want to be the very best version of themselves that they can be?)

And the best part? This is going to be really FUN! Who ever said bettering yourself can’t be enjoyable? Especially when one of the “S’s” is “Sex,” and another is “Sleep!”

I have no doubt my 6 “S’s” will transform your life with totally do-able basics.

You see, to change your life, either something new comes into it from the outside…or something comes from within you. My “6 S’s to Fabulous” are not about waiting for the elusive thing to come to you.

Have you ever wondered:

“What is the #1 key to living an extraordinary life, and getting what I want?”

It’s a really great question, and the first one my coaching clients want me to answer. Here’s my straight-up, without-a-doubt response:

“How you feel about YOURSELF determines your ENTIRE life.”

This basic statement is the premise behind everything I teach and everything I stand for. I believe it is, by far, the single most important philosophy for manifesting the life you want and deserve.

But don’t get me wrong. It’s not about blind self-acceptance or loving yourself, no matter what.

It’s about doing the work necessary to really like and respect yourself — it’s about living up to your own potential. Because when we do that, we trust ourselves, we believe in ourselves, and we attract opportunities.
