Ever heard of Automobile University?

I didn’t either until I started listening to Zig Ziglar, “How to Stay Motived” audio book in the car. Zig talked about the importance of automobile university.

I’ve spend the last five years studying personal growth and reaching your fullest potential. If you’re serious about achieving success in your life, one way you can do that is by attending automobile university. I know it sounds silly but here me out on this one.

According to The Atlantic, the american commuter spends 38 hours a year stuck in traffic.. and it’s even worse for those of you who live in big cities. “The typical car commuter spends more than 60 hours–more than a week of work-time–siting in his car, stuck.”

It’s Time To Start Thriving

I just came back from Richmond, Virginia this past weekend after doing a TV appearance on Virginia this Morning. I had a great time sharing the importance of laying down the right foundation in order to achieve great success in life. It has taken me five long years to finally design a life that is both meaningful and rewarding. Throughout coaching my clients and learning more about personal growth, I’ve realized how easy it is to get stuck in the rut. It’s easy to allow stress and frustration to get the best out of you until eventually you begin to just survive.

Why does it seem like we are living in a society where we are constantly stressed and uptight? It’s as if we are only surviving rather than thriving in life.

Well, there are several components involved but I will share with you three tips on thriving for the new year.

Discover Your Role Models

After experiencing a traumatic situation about five years ago when I was sexually molested and exploited, I discovered the importance of having role models in your life. After my adversity, I was faced at a cross roads. I had the option of either allowing my adversity to negativity affect the rest of my life or to learn fro my adversity and becoming a wiser individual.

Starting at the age of 19, I went on this five year journey answering the question, “What does it take to live a successful life, even in the face of adversity?” After five years of studying 100s of hours on personal development, I finally found the answer to my question. The answer is being able to live each and every day in alignment with your deepest values and beliefs. I had the privilege of sharing my message in Charlotte, NC on WBTV Charlotte.

Throughout my five years of personal transformation, I’ve taken learned from some of the greatest influencers in the field of personal development. The key influencers that have helped me become who I am today are, Tony Robbins, Brian Tracy, and Jim Rohn.
