Be the best Jockey on that Race Horse
Growing up in a small town on the Olympic peninsula of Washington state, some of the most memorable times were with my best friend Lora Lee . I was over at her home far more than I was at my own house.
They raised horses for racing. I didn’t get what that meant as a 10 year old. To me it was an opportunity for Loralee and I to drive the tractor picking up all the rocks or anything else in the pastures that may cause one of the valuable horses to trip or get injured.
Great care was taken to ensure that the race horses would be in as perfect health as possible. They fed them, exercised them, gave them plenty clean water to drink, bathed and brushed them, had their bodies checked out, hooves cleaned cut and taken care of and even more than I probably noticed.
I have come to know now, to some extent, the value of a race horse. Someone might pay close to a million dollars to stud a winning race horse. Today horses have their own swimming pools, veterinarians, coaches, trainers, care takers, and riders. Knowing the great care given to some of these valuable animals, gives me pause to reflect on our own value and power.
I discovered my old journals from 5 and 10 years ago and as I read them I began to see a pattern, just as I did when I worked step 4 (inventory) in the recovery program. Some of the feelings would swell up inside as I read the old words and I realized I still have many of those negative thoughts holding me back today.
What I challenge you to do today is what I am doing. Stop searching for that “fixing mechanism” outside of yourself. I have been to workshops, trainings, counseling, read books,and I even have an incredible mentor – however the real CHANGE that takes place is INSIDE.
It is your inner self, your desires, visions, and purpose for your own life…
You know your own desires and your destiny .
Your Heavenly Father ( Source, the Universe) can help you bring to mind that purpose. It is inside you along with everything you need to achieve that purpose.
So it is time to remember- to allow that to emerge so that you can really see it clear. Stop looking outside yourself …
On a deeper level what does your inner self say to you?
I would like you to think of a Race Horse…
With his Jockey…
Your rational mind is thinking like a Jockey- light weight
But your subconscious is like a race horse – powerful and massive…
Like the Jockey you can train and practice handling that beast, so that you can manipulate her to run the track just the way you want…
The beast-your subconscious has had many thoughts poured into it for years and years; Thoughts of inadequacy and limitations…
Your rational brain has to become a Pro Jockey.
The most powerful way is through your thoughts and words.
Change your language and thoughts every second of your day. Do not settle. Know there is a race- a battle going on every second.
The opposition wants your destiny dead!
Heavenly Father only wants prosperity for you. He believes in you and knows your potential and great worth…
I believe in you too…
You can ask your Source. Ask your Master Mentor, the Master Jockey trainer, to help you see yourself as He sees you. Ask Him to let you see your destiny, to uncover your purpose and to allow your vision of your true self to become clear, so that nothing will stop you from winning this great race…
Everyday the battle is waged…
Be the Best Jockey
You can make new choices…
You can live more fully…
You can make a greater difference…
The choice, as it has always been, is up to you…
Live your destiny!
Serve You- Love You- Lift You
I have been thinking about this phrase a lot.
Recently, a woman came to me and asked me to check out a piece
of mail she received, thinking she may have won close to a million dollars.
As I skimmed over the letter I saw where they wanted her to send money so that she
would be able to claim her winnings.
As I read further there in smaller print it said ‘you may win’.
Reading further still, there were plenty of words that could
easily be misinterprited so the reader would think they were a winner.
When I showed her the small fine print she sighed and said,
“I knew it was too good to be true.”
Why is this so?
As I entered the world of online marketing I discovered many scams,
fake websites and plenty false advertisements promising millions with
no effort on your part.
Some so called experts have cheated people out of their hard earned money.
What they give them in exchange they could have had for free.
Do people really know when it is too good to be true?
My mom would say it all the time, “Remember,
when it seems too good to be true it probably is.”
Common sense shouts to me -“Hey everything worth while takes effort!”
So I am not easily deceived…
In my inquiry on this phrase,
let me tell you what I found…
There are some things that are truly too good- not to be true!
Do you believe me?
I have met couples whose relationships were healthy,
happy and growing in romance even after many years.
I want a relationship that is too good to be true.
I know families who are close and honest with each other,
sharing time, vacations and lives with each other.
I want my family to be too good to be true.
Now I am working with a company that pays 100% commissions.
I have support 24/7; I have met and talked with the owners who
are authentic and genius. I have a Mentor who truly believes in me and
will answer any question I have as I work on monetizing my passions.
I get to help others become empowered to live their dreams and
watch as lives change before my eyes. I have a business that is too good to be true.
I have also watched lives transformed before my eyes as they
gain freedom from addiction. People who have decided to align themselves
with their Source. They are daily making the choice to connect
with the Creator. The peace and joy found through relationships
and working the program are incredible.
This is truly too good and too true.
I choose to live a life that to others may be too good to be true.
But as you are educated on what it takes there is a side that
may not seem too good. It is that side that takes muscle…
It takes a “No Excuses” stand every day. There can be no slacking
when you are your own boss. There is a lot to learn because as
you work you are getting to know your true self as well.
There are bumps along the way.
There is also fantastic rewards when you are your own boss.
My faith has grown like never before.
Relationships are improving because there is less stress.
I do not have an alarm clock to wake me up.
I can go to bed without thinking about getting through
traffic to work the next day… I get to connect with like
minded people who have huge visions of world peace,
freedom for all and progressive consciousness…
Is what I do easy. No way! I have to DO IT SCARED
at the same time recognizing the fear isn’t real.
I choose to be uncomfortable on a daily basis pushing myself to
produce and market better. I have had to learn a lot more than
I did while going to college.
The great thing is I get to apply and earn as I learn.
Is there something holding you back?
Are you saying to yourself that living the life
you dream of is too good to be true?
When I took the leap of faith to pursue a home business,
it felt like jumping off a cliff. I found my wings.
There is one thing that helped…
It is something you can do right now.
Take out a piece of paper. On the left side, write all the things
holding you back; Job, lack of skills, fear of failure,
fear of success, poor self esteem, or whatever it is.
Now, on the right hand side of that paper, write the solutions.
If it is negative influences and people who do not support you
then get away from them. You can always make new friends.
Is it lack of money- then create more money, learn the skills,
and generate the income.
Be who you want to be.
The desire is there because it is who you were meant to be.
Even if you are not sure how, move forward any way.
You don’t have to get it right, you just have to get it going!

PS 2 of my favorite books that have helped me to push past any fear are:
Are you operating in Your 100?
I have had an epiphany this week and guess what?
I have been operating at less than 5% of my potential…
That is not acceptable….
I can hear you asking…
Lorisue, HOW is that possible??
Well here’s how…
Fear takes up a percentage…
Doubt takes up a percentage…
Thinking in my past takes up a percentage…
Burn out takes a percentage….
Lack of belief takes up a percentage…
Distractions take up a percentage….
Procrastination takes up a percentage…
Being pulled by too many ideas take up a percentage….
Not filling up my emotional tank for renewed strength takes up a percentage…
Not turning things off takes up a percentage…
Resistance takes up a percentage….
Worrying about what others do think or say takes up a percentage….
When it comes down to it… not even 5% remains in me.
Enough is enough- though…
I want to truly operate at Your 100 %…
Today I’m making a declaration to TAKE MY LIFE BACK!!
Do you feel that?
can you relate???
If so, declare this with me…… and say it out loud:
“From this day forward, I’m committed to living out my 100!
I’m committed to live out my total being…
I’m committed to living out and operating in my strengths…
I’m committed to being ALL that I was born to be…”
And it is in my total being, that I’m called to help others reach their total being…
My vision includes you!
My vision is intertwined with your purpose!
My Mission is to push you to discover and live out your 100!
My purpose supersedes the limits of impossible…
My commitment will make the impossible possible!
Are you with me?
Are you ready to live out your 100?
Share with me on my facebook page here, what % you feel you’ve been operating in, when it comes to your strengths and the % of power that you’ve been operating in!
Ready To Push You Towards Your 100,

Over-eating is deadly
Over-eating is harmful in more ways than one- but it can be stopped!
As a kid, I heard my mom and dad say there were starving kids in China and that is why I needed to eat everything on my plate. I remember thinking to myself that if those Chinese kids are so hungry why don’t we just send them what we don’t eat?
I realize now that those words “Clean your plate. Eat it all.” said over and over really stuck in my head. As I reached an all time high weight gain, at 5’4”, of 192 pounds, I knew something had to change. I started practicing leaving bites of food on my plate. Then I would leave a little more. It got easier each time I ate. At weddings, parties or food events I would choose a smaller plate…
Today, foods that most are eating, have less or no nutritional value. If over eaten, these foods cause fast weight gain. So do not finish everything on your plate, in that bag, or microwave container…
A good clue to stop the Over-eating is to use your hand as a measure…
A piece of meat does not need to be bigger than your palm. Keep rice, potatoes and sides to no more than your fist, total. If there is more you want eat it in a couple hours for a snack or save it for your next meal…
If you want to feel fantastic add as much raw foods to your diet as possible. You can eat as many vegetables as you want without ever measuring, especially the green ones. They are loaded with anti aging and detoxifying nutrients…
Another clue to remember is to learn the feeling of “satisfaction” verses “full”. It takes time for the stomach to signal the brain that you are full. But you can be aware and feel when you are satisfied. If you aren’t sure, then relax, visit for about 15 minutes, take a walk, or do something else for that time. If you still feel hungry eat a little more but no more than your fist… also: You can always eat vegetables…
There are other things to consider when dropping the whole Over-eating thing, however, I will save that for another blog.
“Food is fuel for the body.”
Rachel has inspired me from day 1
and even now…
You can make these simple changes a tiny step at a time-
You deserve to live your best fit life ever…

Breakfast of Champions Benefits
I know you have heard it- Kids eat your breakfast. That was the motto for PopTarts if I remember right. Maybe it was Trix…andyway….
There is enough research and clear evidence published to show the importance of eating breakfast. This is a good idea if you are wanting to shed some pounds or you want to live a healthier lifestyle.
Here are a few reasons why breakfast is for champions…
When you eat within an hour of rising each day you let your body know there is food coming. While you sleep – your metabolism slows. It will stay at that slow pace if you don’t feed it until lunch time. It has kicked into survival mode which can be switched to high gear by having a meal.
The average person eats most their calories at dinner which would make sense if you are staying up to utilize that energy. When you eat a big breakfast your brain will thank you because it will have the nutrients necessary to solve the issues at work, finish that project or study and listen in class.
If you don’t believe the studies or my words just try it for yourself. East a healthy big breakfast for a week and see how many benefits you notice through out the day. When you make breakfast and lunch the larger calorie meals you will also sleep better having lightened the load in the evening…
If it is a new thing for you to eat breakfast, start light. You will need to be aware of how you feel when you eat what you eat in the morning. Some people will do better having fruit or dairy while others have to have protein. It is a good idea to have a balanced breakfast. Whatever you eat make sure to sit down and enjoy your meal…
I hope these tips have helped you to get excited about having a meal for a champion each morning.
5 Common Denominators of Success
What personal best are you going after today?
I love the Olympics. Thanks to the You Tube channel, there are already videos up for the Sochi 2014 Games starting this Thursday February 6th…
As I watch the world’s top athletes compete for the Gold, Silver, and Bronze- I am so amazed by their stories of perseverance and dedication to their sport…
Their stories are not far off from our
stories as entrepreneurs…
There are 5 common denominators for Success that these athletes utilize and those same 5 apply to each of us as we work from home and desire great success for our own business as well as for those we work with…
#1. Keep Your Goals Close to Your Heart
I cannot picture all of us jumping out of bed shouting, “Hurray I get to write a blog today , market online, check and prioritize, and do my income producing activities”…
Since we have our goals close to our hearts we shout instead..
“Hooray I get to retire my husband, build a financial future, put my children through college effortlessly, spend more time with my family”…
Olympic athletes visualize their event and see themselves winning the gold. They say seeing & believing in the mind is 90% of the effort…
#2. Personal Development
Mindset matters in any area of life. Reading good books, keeping up on our journaling, and doing all things for our own personal growth is not optional if we want to succeed…
All that we have learned in life so far, has gotten us where we are right now at this moment.
“We are a product of out best thinking.”
Our personal best may be 30k , 50k or even 150k a year. If we’re going to take ourselves to another level we have to change what has been programed in our brains. We have to work on our thoughts, mind and attitudes…
Athletes in the Olympics understand the importance of personal development. One of the tools, gold medalist swimmer Michael Phelps uses is called the Brain Train…
#3. Income Producing Activities
The online marketing world is not rocket science. Thank heaven we aren’t up with the dawn to run twenty miles in the snow. There are still things that we must do first. “Eat the Frog.” as Brian Tracy would say. In my business I have basically three Income producing activities. They are to generate leads, market to my leads, and support my team…
I have to say I enjoy the generating leads because it means I get to create and share with others value. I love to see others having success in any area of their lives and if I play a little part in that I am a winner…
We don’t have competitions in our sport to show up to or strict regimens of wake up, swim, eat, swim, eat, work out, and sleep daily but we still have to show up…
#4. Stay in The Environment
No matter what you are doing, becoming, or seeking, to have success you need to get with those succeeding at what you want to do well. Surround yourself with the greats, employ a mentor, and show up to all the trainings and activities you can so that you are positioned to have the greatest progression…
When I can get together with the amazing leaders on my team and in the industry I feel myself being lifted both mentally and emotionally to new levels. There are daily calls with my team and weekly calls with the company that unite us as a community and create new and better ideas for each of our prosperity.
The number one way to really take a step up; a way to surround yourself with greatness and have some major break throughs is to attend the live events. These are motivational, inspirational, educational and spiritual at the same time.(and of course, social) When you are in the environment where people you are surrounded with dream big - You can’t help but expand your dreams…
#5. Cultivating the expectation for leadership
In other words, you expect your team to follow you as you follow your mentor and other leaders. You believe in your goals and achieving your dreams and you expect to help those following you to have reality come of their dreams as well. In this community of Empower Network we really are all in this together…
So there they are. The 5 common denominators for success as an athlete, as a professional, as a fitness freedom seeker or you name it…
May you score a personal best
today and every day.
Serve You- Love You- Lift You
1. Keep your goals close to your heart
2. Practice personal development
3. Do the Income Producing Activities daily
4. Stay in the environment
5. Cultivate the expectation for leadership
Cheesy Kale Chips
“These are addictive. When I first read about this recipe there was a story about kale chips disappearing The author said she finally caught her little 2 or 3 year old sneaking the chips out of the dehydrator! I had a 17 month old at the time and if she could have reached my dehydrator she would have done the same thing. She loved them. ” -smoothiegirl
To make these chips takes time -not gonna lie-So make a lot each time…
They are like our chocolate chip cookies used to be -Gone in an Instant!

(Gluten Free) Shirataki Noodles – The Worlds Only Zero Calorie Pasta
Imagine a world where pasta is calorie free… this dream of all pasta lovers is now reality. Shirataki noodles are the worlds only zero calorie pasta. Discovered in Japan, the women would eat these to stay thin. It is even healthy too!!!
What makes this Miracle Noodle so healthy?
The answer is in the fact that it is full of the soluble fiber called glucomannan. Glucomannan has several health benefits and has also been seen to aid in weight loss. This type of fiber slows digestion, making you feel fuller longer and helping you to absorb more of the healthy nutrients. It also slows the absorption of sugar making it ideal for diabetics to eat.
This slowing of sugar will also slow the production of insulin from your pancreas so that you won’t get that dreaded insulin spike after a meal. Your blood sugar will be normalized keeping you from getting that “sleepy” feeling after you eat.
What Are Shirataki Noodles Made Of?
These low carb/no carb noodles are made from Konjac flour which is from the Konjac plant. This plant is very similar to a sweet potato. The noodles are clear/translucent and flavorless. The absorb the flavors of what ever is added to them, making them useful for a wide variety of pasta dishes.
Pasta is not a diet food, but this is an exception. Since it has so much fiber in it, I highly encourage that you try some and start to make it a part of your daily diet.
Not alot of local grocery stores carry these type of noodles. I have located a great company to purchase from. Click here to order here order
We will be seeing this more and more as dietary supplements filled with the glucomannan spill across the weight loss obsessed U.S.A.
Be warned but enjoy your noodles:
Just because Glucomannan has been shown to inhibit absorption of cholesterol and glucose by the gastrointestinal system, this in no way means everyone should rush out and buy the latest supplements- The Konjac root supplements with it’s benefits have also been known to cause potentially life-threatening blockages of the esophagus, throat or intestine.

It is that time of year- Yes- you guessed it – Clayton’s birthday.
That means baking a cake…
Not just any cake- a sugar free birthday cake. That means no fake sugar!
Many people think that sugar free and 0 calorie, artificial sweetners must be ok for you because they are on the market. These sweetners and other preservatives are the reason that alergies are on the rise. Studies have proven that a calorie is not neccessarily a calorie. Take a look around and you will see the heaviest people eat the artificial sweetners, count calories and weigh themselves often (3 big no-nos)
It really ticks me off that the FDA has money as the number one reason to put poisons, chemicals and products on the markets to be tested by the market. People who do not study food sciences or care enough to empower themselves to find out believe that because it is in then grocery store it is o.k. for the consumer. eeek.
Nutrasweet, malatol, Acesulfame potassium (Sunett, Sweet One) Erythritol(Pure Via, Truvia),Aspartame (Equal, NutraSweet)Hydrogenated starch hydrolysateTagatose (Naturlose)NeotameIsomaltTrehalose, Saccharin (SugarTwin, Sweet’N Low), Lactitol, Sucralose (Splenda), Maltitol, Mannitol, Sorbitol, Xylitol…the list of health altering sweetners goes on and on, as long as there is money to be made.
