  • Stop Being Boring & Put An End To Mediocrity

    “If you see children walking along the sidewalk after a rain, and there’s a puddle in front of them, what are they going to do when they get to that puddle?  They’re going to jump in!  They’re going to laugh, splash around, and have a good time.  What does an older person do?  Walk around it?  No, they won’t just walk around it – they’ll complain the whole time!  You want to live differently.  You want to live with a spring in your step, a smile on your face.  Why not make cheerfulness, outrageousness, playfulness a new priority for yourself?  Make feeling good your expectation.  You don’t have to have a reason to feel good – you’re alive; you can feel good for no reason at all!“ ~ Anthony Robbins

    I love this quote so much. It reminds me of a time my husband and I went out for a run, just after it rained. ☔ The ground was wet when we started our run. We left the house on not so great terms with an unresolved argument looming over both of us.

    After a few miles in, you could feel the emotions within each of us shift back to a harmonious space. As the love and understanding started to overcome me, a sense of playfulness emerged. 😏

    As we turned the last corner back towards our apartment, I hunched over, grabbed my leg and started screaming ouch!! 😫😫

    Knowing my husband would rush to my aid, I waited until he was almost to me to jump up and right into a MASSIVE mud puddle I was standing next too. 💦 Scattered with mud and water we both erupted in laughter as we continued to see who could get who muddier. 💦

    This ridiculous moment from our past is one we often talk about. 🕒 It gets brought up at dinner parties when meeting new friends and about every time we see a mud puddle.

    But why? Why is it so often remembered…

    In one word… Spontaneity. Tony calls this one of the 6-fundamental human needs.

    We desperately desire fun, excitement and joy in our lives! But, being human means that we get trapped in autopilot, in a routine, in a rutt.

    When this happens, sadness, disappointment, and depression emerge. All of which can be changed with 1-Spontaneous choice. 😍

    One joyful, playful decision that allows our inner-child to emerge and for just a brief moment puts our overly responsible, mature, do the right thing mindset at rest.

    🎥 This week, I dedicated my video to put an end to mediocrity. To encouraging spontaneity, playfulness & fun! Check it out & be sure to tag me in a facebook post capturing your spontaneous fun!

    Oh, and if you are looking for some spontaneous fun Join me this week at Journey to Joy Live! 🎟 This is your last chance to snag tickets to this life-changing event. Click HERE to grab yours. 🎟

    Until next week, HAVE FUN!

  • 3 Tips To Moving Forward When Tragedy Strikes

    I had just graduated high school earlier that year. 🎓 It was early, as I just dropped my boyfriend off to adult education when I decided to swing by my parent’s house.

    I remember flipping through the channels at rapid speed looking for a song to jam out too, with no luck. Station after station was filled with what appeared at first glance to be noise, ads, talking and news. I wasn’t in the mood, so I clicked off the radio and turned on the Rage Against the Machine CD that happened to be in my player. 💿

    As I pulled into the driveway, I was relieved to see no one was home. This meant I could raid the pantry without a concern. Diving into my second bowl of cereal, I sat down to turn on the TV.

    📺 After clicking through about a dozen stations, it finally clicked… They were all playing the same footage.

    I froze; cereal dripping from my mouth as I watched in horror, as the 2nd plane smashed into the South Tower.

    I think we can all vividly remember where we were and what we were doing the moment this tragedy struck our country. As a nation, we watched in horror as our New York and Washington D.C. brothers and sisters fled for their lives.

    The hopelessness we felt in that moment turned to rage as the dust settled. For many who were directly affected by this tragedy, the loss was overwhelming.

    Now, 16 years later, we remember. We remember those who tragically lost theirs lives during that horrendous day, and those who lost their lives for more than a decade after avenging their deaths.

    Today, we honor you. We honor all who were lost, hurt and have sacrificed during and after this nation rattling event. 🛡

    In honor of 9/11 I decided to dedicate this Mind Right Monday to helping those left behind when tragedy strikes. Being the one who is left standing after the dust settles can be one of the hardest battles to fight.

    The shame, guilt, sadness, grief, anger, and fear can be paralyzing, but we must move forward. Regardless if it is the events of 9/11, the loss of a job, loved one, or home; we are reminded today that tragedy affects us all. And life marches on. Learning to move through the lingering emotions and discovering a path back to joy is essential.💖

    Check out this week’s video and let me know, where were you on 9/11? Your story matters, because you matter.

    If you are reading this and find yourself stuck, unable to move or feel paralyzed by something that has happened to you in your past, call me and let’s talk.

    With the right tools and support, you too can live the life you have always dreamed. Right now, you can snag 20-minutes free with me. (CLICK HERE) ☎️ Let’s explore why you are stuck and the right tools, programs, or techniques to get you unstuck.

  • Get GRIT and get it done Mindset

    What does it mean to have a grit mindset?? Well, Grit is defined as: courage and resolve; strength of character.’

    We get asked often how to enhance your grit and so, this week, we decided to share with you some tips & tools 🔨🔧 to help you do just that!

    When facing 😞 hardship, change or adversity, adopting a grit mindset is just what the doctor ⚕ ordered, however, in most of these times, our mindset strays to the exact opposite.

    When faced with adversity in our lives, many of us tend to shrink and allow our fear 😱 to become our decision maker. We fall back into old patterns, habits and ramp up our avoidance and procrastination habits.

    Let me first start by saying, this is understandable.💖

    It is understandable why we allow our fear to drive us. When fear is present, it is because a threat is present, and thus our fear is there to protect us 🛡.

    The issue isn’t that fear is there, the issue is that we don’t reason with our fear and allow it to be unchallenged in the mind. When this happens our fear runs to extremes and causes a panic 😨 of the mind.

    This is where adopting a grit mindset will serve you well!! In this week’s video, I will share with you tips & tools on how to adopt a grit mindset (especially in tough times).

    I would also recommend that if you are anything like me to also get involved with some sort of endurance race🏃. One of my business coaches is a HUGE advocate for this and really encouraged me to train for a ½ marathon while I am revving up in my business.

    And guess what… IT HELPS!

    So, here I am (all sweaty) training with my husband & friend and harnessing my GRIT to get it done!File_000

    Happy Labor Day!

    XOXO – Bonnie Kelly

  • 3 Empowering Words

    I love learning new things. There is so much in this beautiful world that I don’t yet know and so many beautiful things that I am still longing to explore!

    I seriously love new things 💖💖💖.

    Personally, I think my favorite new things to explore is new destinations. 🌇 When I was younger in my early 20’s I began searching the world to find myself, and so I explored a lot.

    Unbeknownst to me, what I was desperate to find in my travels, resided deep inside of me, I fearlessly ventured out into the world traveling across the country.

    Over the years I have visited all but 10 US states 🇺🇸: OK, AR, MO, MT, WV, DE, MA, NH, ME, AK. (Look out states! You are on my list!)

    As a result, I developed an exploration itch that needs to be scratched from time to time. Whether it’s exploring a new town, coffee shop, trail, drive or airport, I love exploring.

    This week I decided to explore words. And more specifically, words with deeper meanings that are sure to inspire and uplift your soul.

    These words are taken from the Greek language (both modern & ancient) and have some profound meanings! So put on your explorer caps 👒 and check out this week’s video 🎥!

    Oh, and if you are really looking for an epic adventure, then you are going to want to check out my Sneak Peek page I created just for you. Click HERE to check it out and discover a special LIMITED TIME offer that you will never see again after this week.

    Keep up the epicness!

  • How to Make Conscious Connections

    Honestly, I don’t have time to be a good friend. Running 2 companies can be exhausting at times. I am constantly being bombarded with to-do’s and responsibilities, only to come home to a house filled with responsibilities and obligations.

    I invest so much of my time into being a bad-ass wife, boss, and human, that I honestly don’t have time to be a good friend, but I ALWAYS MAKE TIME.

    When life squeezes us, one of the first things we will allow to fall off is our friendships. We often think they will still be there when life settles down, or prioritize them towards the bottom of our list, but at what cost?

    Our friendships in the outside world are what brings us so much 💓 joy, 💓 love, 💓 happiness, and perspective! Without them, it can be easy to get lost in a mundane same-o-same-o lifestyle! YUCK!

    Now, you might be thinking “But Bonnie! I don’t have friendships that are enriching!” and my reply to you is, then you need to make space to create some.

    Making friends can be hard. I like to pride myself on being able to make friendships no matter where I go, but even I struggle from time to time. Just last year I had a HUGE friend LOW.

    My legacy friends were all busy and being that I moved 30-minutes away took a huge toll on the amount of time we spent together.

    The lack of friends wasn’t for a lack of trying because I was trying to find healthy friendships, but I keep falling short.

    I chose NOT to allow my heart to get discouraged and kept my focus on what I desired. I chose to be conscious in my connections and you know what happened… I made some AMAZING new friendships!

    SO AWESOME!

    And now that I have them… I still don’t have time, however, I ALWAYS make time.

    I hope, for those of you reading this, you can hear how important it is to create space in your busy life for creating healthy connections. This investment of your time and energy will enrich your life in so many ways if you let it. 😊😊😊

    During this week’s video, I share with you some ideas on how to make conscious connections and even how to start to evaluate your current connections as well.

    Make time. Create space. And get involved. Sometimes the best thing you can do is put yourself in the right environment to discover new friendships.

    👀 If you are looking for somewhere you can find conscious minded individuals, then look no further than the Journey To Joy Live 2-day event happening in Sept. Connect, Learn, Grow and Release in a safe enriching environment that is filled with AWESOME people just like you! 👀

    Be sure to watch the video and let us know what you think!

    We love hearing from you.

    Until next time, keep being awesome!

  • When Shit Happens

    Crap! I just emotionally vomited all over my fav shirt!

    I hate when this happens. You spend an hour getting ready, fixing your hair and ironing your shirt, only to spill something on yourself as you are heading out the door!

    Ugh! 😠😠

    This just happened to me the other day. My husband and I were passionately debating on the phone while I was rushing to get ready for a photo shoot I was doing that morning. With only about 10-minutes to spare, I rushed outside to water a few of my plants before the temperature boiled over 100 degrees that day.

    Unknown to me, my brand new nozzle broke and with a flood of fury, water shot everywhere, splattering mud all over my AWESOME white jeans!

    In a moment of frustration, I reacted! 😡

    “GOSH DANG IT!” I scream! “I got to go” were the last words my husband heard, as I hung up the phone and rushed upstairs to find a replacement outfit with only minutes now to spare.

    As I rushed off to my shoot, I could feel the tension in my body. The past few weeks had already been stressful and this morning really pushed me over the top.

    Knowing better, I should have leaned into one of my tools, but I forgot (yep, I’m human).

    As the photo shoot started, I struck a pose, smiled and tried to settle into the moment. About 15-minutes in, the photographer stopped the shoot, put the camera down and said “hun, can you take a breath? Your forehead is stressed and it shows.”

    I erupted in laughter!! 😂😂😂

    💨 Breathe Bonnie, just breathe! 💨 With this reminder, I took a short 10-minute break to practice some powerful tools to de-stress. Going back to the shoot my forehead was relaxed, my breathing calm and my smile genuine.

    It’s amazing what a difference practicing your tools can make. Wondering what tools I used? Then check out this week’s episode of Mind Right Monday to find out!

    With the right tools, skills, and insights, you DO have the power to transform any moment into one of joy. 🏆 It’s taken years of practice and though I’m not perfect, I do possess the ability to create the life I desire.

    If you are seeking solutions to do the same, then join me. Join me at my Live Event (Sept 22-23), join me in my year-long Over It Academy 🖥, join me during Coaching & Coffee , join me on FB Live 👍, or join me for 20-min Free with Me 📲!

    You decide.

    But do something.

    Doing nothing guarantees one thing… the same-o-same. Though doing something doesn’t guarantee success, it will guarantee a shift or change. And sometimes that’s all it takes to start an avalanche of good.

    Until next time, keep being awesome!

  • How to Deal with Drama

    There is nothing better than a good drama on the big screen. 🎬 Action packed, full of suspense, bad guys, heroic rescues, and damsels in distress can be so exciting.

    📺 Seeing drama on TV or the big screen is awesome, but not so much when it’s your life on the line. Well, maybe our life’s drama isn’t as dramatic as a Die Hard movie, but honestly, our bodies can have the same reactions to everyday drama as it would to life threatening drama.

    So what do we do? How do we deal with Drama?!

    Honestly, there are a lot of different methodologies 🔬 as to how to proceed with dealing with drama, and the best method depends on a lot of factors including the situation, people involved, timing and what else is going on.

    In this week’s video I will share with you multiple different tips to help you deal with drama so be sure to watch it 🖥, but truthfully, being able to separate dysfunction from your reality isn’t going to happen over night.

    You see, one of the primary factors that I didn’t mention above in dealing with drama is… well, you.

    If you lack the skills to not take it personally, to identify triggers, assumptions, expectations and how your past experiences are playing a role in attracting or reacting to this drama, well then you will keep getting sucked in no matter how hard you try!

    These skills require training and it just so happens to be the precise kind of training I specialize in! (😂 Shameless self-plug!)

    If you truly want to learn these types of skills and SO much more, then give me a call and let’s talk! I have so many solutions that can help you discover your Journey To Joy.

  • How to live a life by design not by default

    There was a time in my life where my life was ONLY lived by default. No matter how much I tried, I was always in response to situations. 😒

    Not that long ago, I stumbled across a book by Wallace Wattles called, ‘The Science Of Getting Rich’. Before this point, I had read books like ‘The Secret’, and ‘Law of Attraction’. I understood the basics of how your thoughts influenced the direction of your life and how your feelings drove many of your actions and reactions.

    But honestly, knowing this in concept vs embodying this understanding were two different things.

    I would spend every morning setting my intention, getting clear with my desire and eliminating any thoughts and feelings that didn’t serve me, yet I still wasn’t getting exactly what I wanted.

    Money would come in, but bills of it’s equal value would claim these new riches. I was manifesting MORE MONEY and MORE BILLS at the same time!??!! 💸💸💸

    At this stage, it would have been easy to toss out the books, claim they didn’t work and dismiss these ideas as woo-woo. 😨 Instead, I kept digging and stumbled upon this quote by Wallace Wattles that struck me to my core…

    “To think according to appearance is easy; to think truth regardless of appearances is laborious, and requires the expenditure of more power than any other work man is called upon to perform.”

    To think this idea of living a life by design was a hoax and didn’t really work was easy. 👎  These kinds of thoughts come effortlessly in moments of pain, but what if the truth of the self-sabotage was something deeper. What if I could discover an underlying reason that was keeping me stuck and resolve it?

    Well, then I would truly have the LIFE I DESIRED vs. the life that I knew. And guess what… this took WORK!

    It took more work “than any other working man is called upon to perform”! Wallace to the rescue! Reading this quote reminded me that to truly master my desires, to truly live the life I choose was going to take work and I had to be willing to not quit when things got difficult! 🏝

    👏 This is my challenge to you this week. Ask yourself where in your life have you given up because it was easier?

    Where do you need to think truth REGARDLESS of the appearances?

    If you are anything like a human 😂 then there are areas of your life desperate for change.

    If you know this and are ready to DO something 🏆 about it, I invite you to join me Sept 22-23 in Rocklin, CA for Journey To Joy Live! This 2-day event will set you on the fast track to living the life you desire vs continuing the path by default. Click HERE for more information about this epic event.

    And check out this week’s Mind Right Monday Episode where I share with you 3-tips to embracing a life by design.

  • Building Lasting Self Confidence

    Hey freind! How was your weekend?! I was blessed to spend the weekend with some friends on the delta this weekend! Here is the view from the deck:

     

    At last year’s Taylor House Gala, a group of us bought the Delta House weekend package and we finally got a chance to use it! It was so much fun and we can’t wait to bid again at the upcoming event in Roseville CA on September 28th! (Click HERE to learn more about this epic non-profit)

    Let’s talk SELF-CONFIDENCE!

    Look, everyone struggles with this in different areas of our lives. Some of us are SUPER confident when it comes to making money but lack it when it comes to talking to the opposite sex.

    Some of us are super confident in our own skin, whereas others can never seem to find the right outfit! Some love to meet new people, others can’t stand having a 5-minute meet-n-greet! And some of us feel paralyzed by our lack of confidence in all aspects of our lives.

    But, why is this???

    How is it that we can be super confident in one area and not the next? Why do we struggle so much with being seen, heard, felt, or loved?

    Well honestly, it’s because what makes us insecure isn’t something we can change on the outside.

    See, typically we think if we just lose that 10lbs, or have the right outfit, or have our bank accounts at a certain level, THEN I will have the confidence!

    I hate to break this to you but… this is not the answer.

    It might feel like it for a moment when you get that temporary boost, or that extra attention you were longing for, but, this will be short lived.

    You see, you can’t fix an inward issue by looking outside of you.

    Lasting self-confidence is an inward job that can only be cured with inward solutions. To help you accomplish this, I have 2 things for you.

    First: watch this week’s Mind Right Monday episode where I talk about lasting self-confidence.

    Second: sign-up to join me for Coaching & Coffee starting this week Wednesday at 7:30am PST.

    It’s 100% free and is my way of giving back to you! This week we will explore what is blocking YOU from having self-confidence and use my BREAKTHROUGH YOU coaching methodology to help you unleash the best version of you possible!

    Reserving your spot is easy, but don’t snag one unless you are 100% committed to joining me as space is limited. Sign UP HERE!

    Okay! Best wishes my loves! And make sure to share this video with anyone you know who could use the confidence boost!

    Until next time, keep being awesome!

    Bonnie Kelly

    PS: Did you hear the news!! We will be LIVE September 22-23 for my Journey to Joy Live Event! Tickets go on sale this week Friday and space is limited to just 100-spots! Keep an eye on your inbox for details!

  • Are You Insecurities Keeping You Small?

    I got sick again last week. The stomach flu hit me like a ton of bricks last Monday after coming back from a fun 3-day camp trip with friends.

    I know where I got the sickness (thanks fellow camp buddies), but yet why out of 15 people there was I the only one who left that trip with this bug?

    Why was I the only one who got sick? 😷

    You may think; well maybe your immune system was weaker, or you were stressed, or you shared something. Maybe. But I think it was something much more… Self-Sabotage.

    Yep. I got sick so I didn’t have to face my fear. 😱

    Many of you are like WHAT?! But let me connect the dots for you.

    As many of you already know I am currently up-leveling my business this year. I hired 2 amazing coaches who are helping me take my business from 6-figures to multiple 6-figures. Yes, this is heck of exciting, but also terrifying.

    Up-leveling means more risk, more responsibility, and demands more leadership. “Can I handle it?” “What if I fail?” “What if I don’t make it?” “What if I crumple under the pressure?!!!”

    My fears flared up and started ringing in my ears. For week’s I avoided addressing these insecurities and distracted myself with busy-work so that I wouldn’t have to deal with them.

    But God has a bigger plan and you can only ignore your soul for so long before it kicks you in the butt to get moving.

    Thus my sickness.🤒It was my soul’s way of checking me for allowing my old BS to run the show!

    THANK GOD I HAVE THE TOOLS 🛠 & KNOW HOW TO DO SOMETHING ABOUT IT BEFORE IT CAUSED ANY REAL DAMAGE.

    I took ownership of my BS and instantly started to use my tools to power through my shit. Now I’m back on track and more excited than ever!!  

    NOTE: Having the tools & know-how doesn’t mean that my fear and insecurities won’t get the best of me from time-to-time. Rather, it means I can confidently identify and change direction when my old BS beliefs start to run the show.

    What about you? Where in your life is your fear, doubt & insecurities running the show?

    Own it, acknowledge it, and do something about it! If you need a little help with the “what do I do” part of it, then that’s where you might need to ask for guidance.

    Here is what you can do.

    First, watch this week’s 🦄 Mind Right Monday episode on Stop Avoiding & Taking Ownership. Second, schedule an appointment with me and let’s talk 📱.

    There are solutions and the BK-Way can show you how. I have created a step-by-step blueprint to help you transform your BS beliefs to Bliss. Don’t believe me, just see what my grads have had to say.

    Enrollment for my year long program opens this week. Schedule your appointment today 📱 and let’s see if we can make the change you are seeking reality.

    Enjoy! And until next week, keep being awesome!

    XOXO – BK
