Hello! Thank you for coming to visit. I'm Cheryl Kelly, mother of three, woman with many hats, pursing her dream. I made the decision to empower myself and others, so we can be in control of our health and wealth, together we create freedom and a lasting legacy, and this is my journey... Hope you enjoy what you see! Pull up a chair and stay a while...

Are you just interested in living an extraordinary life or truly COMMITTED???

 

Committed is...getting up earlier and staying up later.

Committed is...showing up regardless of who you think is watching. 

Committed is...standing strong in who you are and what you desire, not what someone else wants from you.  

Committed is...shining your light brightly for others to see. 

Committed is...sharing your voice, your message in order to help even 1 person.  

Committed is...not giving up even when it is easier to do so. 

Committed is...doing what you say you'll do.

Committed is...taking the hard way in order to make it easier for those who follow behind you. 

Committed is...doing the DO every single day, no matter how small or how big.  

 

Committed is...doing WHATEVER it takes. 

 

I am COMMITTED to living an extraordinary life...in business, in life, in relationships, in love, with our children, our health, our wellness... 

 

I dare you to change even just ONE of your habits (waking up instead of hitting the snooze or cutting out watching T.V. so much or dropping the soda drinking) and start stepping into your habits of greatness, being committed to doing whatever it takes. 

 

Commitment to abundance and whatever it takes to get there in your life is SO much better than being interested and doing what is convenient. Convenience never made it to the arena, to the championships....Committed gets there every time. 

All it takes is a choice from YOU to step into it...

 

Nudge from the Universe: takes steps now, start today.

Empowering one another empowers us and those around us even more...

By growing up in a neighborhood full of boys and competitive sports, I have found that I have competition running through my veins all the time. I'm working on harnessing that competition into a healthy "We all achieve by raising others up" type of competition. There's no room in the universe for the kind of competition that says, "I am right and you are wrong" or "I am the only winner and you the loser."

I’m definitely not perfect and I've made mistakes and stumbled along the way, but I'm constantly working on me and self improvement so that I can give more to others. I have a burning desire to help other women, men and young adults...to try their best, to inspire and ultimately to make them feel better about themselves.We all have the power inside us for greatness and to empower others. There is an abundance to be given and an abundance to go around for everyone wishing to partake.

Therefore...there is no need for us women to see each other as competition or as a threat. We can instead uplift each other.

There is no need to compare ourselves to other women (in a bad or unhealthy way). We can praise each other instead and celebrate our differences.

There is no need for women to dislike other women. We can instead accept each other and agree to be on the same team, not opposing teams.

Too many young girls are terrible to each other because they lack positive female role models. We can be those positive role models for our daughters and for the girls with whom we interact and those who are watching us and learning from us.

Lets get rid of the jealousy, hatred, criticism...and replace it with love, encouragement, support and celebration of one another. We have the power to change that by starting with ourselves.

You are whole, perfect, strong, loving, harmonious and happy...you are powerful beyond your wildest dreams and you hold the key to empower, love and celebrate all women....and men.

Since when did we decide to listen to the limiting ideas of others to determine our fate, our personal path? Since we were born, right!? Since the day we were born we have been told what to do, what not to do, what to wear and not to wear, what to eat, who to be friends with, what is socially acceptable, the expectation for us, etc. You get the idea. We have always been told who we are and what we should be in the context of what home we were born into, who our parents are, what country we are from, what religion we were raised to believe, etc. Don’t get me wrong, it's not necessarily a bad thing. Most of us wouldn’t be anywhere near where we are without the early guidance we received (myself included). Our parents, teachers, grandparents, loved-ones, friends...have our best interest in mind when they set these standards for us. However, as you have matured or had changes in life situations, you may come to the realization that those expectations could be less than the greatness you see for yourself now. Those standards by which you are judged by others may be confining or just not who you really are or want to be. 

Here's your wake up call. YOU and only YOU have the ability to make your life into whatever YOU want it to be. Some of us like to blame others for our misgivings or misfortunes or mistakes. However, if you want real change in your life, you have to step up and take responsibility for YOU. Stop allowing those limiting beliefs to be your excuse. Stop holding yourself back. We don't believe in our abilities because we don't want to be disappointed or disappoint others. That's a bunch of crap. Stop listening to the negative talk (most of it is going on in your own head) and take daily actions to achieve the dreams you wish. You were born with greatness inside of YOU, harness it and believe in YOU. Know that you are worth it all and you deserve the very BEST this universe has to offer. If you don't believe in you, no one else will. Start with your self-image, work on you and your beliefs about you.

 

How many of us set the bar too low and therefore, we fall short of the ultimate goal? Stop sabotaging your own success. We all have it in us to reach higher and to achieve more. Challenge yourself to not just live up to the status-quo, but to blow it out of the water! It’s not selfish to want to me more, to achieve more, to be a better version of yourself tomorrow than you were today. The universe needs your special talent, your unique perspective, your new invention, your gifts, your ingenuity, your willingness to give of yourself to other. I believe in you and I know you can do whatever you set your mind to do. Take constant daily action to achieve what you want out of life. There’s nothing holding you back, but the false fear inside of you. Be child-like, try something new, be a Superhero! Don't just reach for the stars, REACH BEYOND THE STARS! Allow yourself the right to succeed and then empower others with your light.

Have you ever felt this way? I know I have. There's so much more to life than just getting through each day, paying bills, doing the daily grind... Life is FULL! Full of opportunities for growth, for helping others, for enriching yourself, for creating art & music, for love...the opportunities are ENDLESS. Don't get stuck in a rut. There is so much beauty in the world...don't blink or you might miss it. If you need help, reach out and ask for it. You were made for greatness and the universe needs you to shine. Live on purpose...you weren't put here by accident and you aren't here to simply pay bills & die. #bemoredomoreshinemore #beawesome

I see you out there girl as you try to wake up to your alarm and hit snooze another time. You want to go workout before work, but not today. Ugh, you’re thinking…I can work out tomorrow…can it really be time to get up already?

I see you as you get ready for work and pass by the mirror, needing to look into it but afraid of the reflection you’ll see. Thinking….How have I gotten to this point?

I see you as you struggle to pick out an outfit for the day, trying on this…trying on that…looking for something that is flattering and comfortable, but it’s hard to feel comfortable in clothes when you’re not comfortable in your own skin. Thinking…oh well, guess this is how it’s supposed to be.

I see you look around in your kitchen and decide to skip breakfast because “you’re not that hungry anyways” and you tell yourself you don’t want the calories. Thinking…I’ll be good today. 

I see you on your morning commute stop for your morning cup of Joe because you don’t have any energy. Instead of black coffee, you choose the extra large, Grande, mocha swirl latte with the whipped cream on top. Thinking…I deserve this treat and “it’s only a coffee, it’s not food”.

I see you girl, as you arrive at work tired of being underappreciated, underpaid, overworked, unsatisfied, and tired of the daily grind just to get by. Thinking…seriously, do I really have to punch in my time and ask permission to take a day off like I’m a child?

I see you stressed when you realize you are hungry and didn’t plan ahead or bring anything to eat for lunch. Thinking…I’ll run through the drive thru, how bad can it be? I don’t have time to eat healthier.

I see you excited when you leave work for the day. You hop in and play your favorite playlist on the drive home. You’re singing along, the sun is shining, you’re moving to the beat and soaking it all in. You feel JOY possibly for the first time today. Thinking…yes, I’m off and I get to see my family and do what I want!

I see you when you arrive home and realize there’s a pile of dishes, dinner to cook, homework to navigate, laundry to contend with and BTW, you’re the taxi driver. Girl, you were so excited but now you’re in glue-mode. Thinking…I have to do my job and keep it all together for everyone else, they need me so there’s no time for me time now.

I see you girl, going to drop off and pick up kiddos at the multiple activities. You put on a big smile and you talk small talk with the others doing the same thing you’re doing. You’re not really happy, but you can pretend for the time being. Thinking…someday I’ll REALLY be happy, someday I’ll make myself a priority….someday…

I see you once you settle in to the evening…you had high hopes for this day. Right now, though you’re simply exhausted and undernourished…mentally, physically, financially and emotionally. So instead of going on a walk, playing with your family, sitting outside to enjoy the sunset, reading a good book…you collapse and mindlessly lose yourself in the lives of others scrolling through Facebook, Pinterest, Instagram…whatever is the latest technology. Thinking…maybe tomorrow will be different.   

I see you girl, I know your story. You ARE me…at least who I used to be.

If you’re now thinking…I no longer want this to be my story, I’m here for you and I can help.
