By Lindsay Matway, Founder of The Bombshell Dynasty
5 Rules of Coaching:
"A Bombshell is a woman who exudes her LIGHT unto this world by actively pursues her greatest potential... and seeks to inspire others by walking the walk. A woman who is BEAUTIFUL, no matter her age, color, shape or size, but because she OWNS her life! A BOMBSHELL never lets others determine her destiny, she is a LEADER, a motivator, a LEARNER of LIFE! A BOMBSHELL's job and sole purpose is to help others to see and bring out their INNER BOMBSHELL!!!
My decision to become a Beachbody Coach has completely CHANGED my life! I went from a new mom who was lost & stuck bartending, always finding myself in the SAME situation, flat broke after my bills we paid! Now, fast-foward & I know EXACTLY what I want in life, and have seen many of my dreams become my reality, I never have to worry about money, and BEST OF ALL... I get to help others make those same changes in their lives! BLESSED!
#1 RULE - Don't let anyone determine what you are capable of... because I know plenty of people who didn't believe in me... or Beachbody... but the only belief I needed to be successful in this was MY OWN!
#2 RULE - CONSTANTLY look for ways to serve in the lives of others (without looking for something in return!) Every job should be looked at as a SERVICE job... no matter if you are an accountant, postman, coach, or server... Give people the BEST of you... no matter WHAT you do!
# 3 RULE - Stretch yourself beyond what you think you are capable of every single day! If you are not uncomfortable at least 5 times a day then there is a good chance you are not growing in the direction of your dreams! You HAVE TO be willing to do the little things you DON'T WANT to do in the short-term... to get to the BIG things you DO WANT to do in the long-term.
# 4 RULE - Add VALUE to people's life... Leave everyone better for having known you... Listen to them without thinking about what YOU are going to say next, really take in the emotion in their words and respond with thoughtfulness! This alone sets you apart from the pack!
# 5 RULE - Work on YOUR OWN problems and issues first, before you try changing others... *This was a BIG turning point in MY life* So many of us spend our time picking apart others, pointing out how easy it would be for them to turn their life around... but do NOTHING about changing our own! You want to help others change? Start living up to the potential in YOUR OWN LIFE! You cannot make someone change, but you can INSPIRE them to seek their own light... by shinning YOURS!
Just as a candle can light another candle without losing any of its own light... You can ignite passion in thousands without ever having to DIM your own light. So BURN BRIGHTLY, unashamed of your God given glory... Because you never know HOW MANY candles there are out there just waiting to be LIT by YOU! :)
One of THEE GREATEST PARTS about the 21-Day Fix meal plan is that you can trade out one of your yellow contains for a “treat”... be it a small glass of VINOoOoOooo or ---- even a "fix-approved" COOKIE (like the ones featured below!)
Banana Oatmeal Cookies (Makes 8. Serving size is 2 and replaces 1 Yellow container on the 21-Day Fix)
Ingredients: Nonstick cooking spray 1 cup Old Fashioned Rolled Oats 2 tsp ground Cinnamon 1/4 tsp Sea Salt 2 medium ripe Bananas, mashed 1/4 cup semi-sweet chocolate chips 1/4 cup unsweetened shredded coconut
Directions: 1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees. 2. Lightly spray baking sheet with nonstick cooking spray. 3. Combine oats, cinnamon and salt in a medium bowl, making sure to mix well. 4. Add mashed bananas, chips and coconut, mix well. 5. Drop by heaping Tbsp onto your baking tray. 6. Flatten the cookies with wet fingers (so they don’t stick) or a silicon spatula. 7. Bake for 14-15 minutes, or until they are firm. 8. Cool and Enjoy!
ON A BUDGET: (I also use and LOVE):
Miss Spa Iluminating Gel Eye Mask:
(Found at ULTA.com) $6.99 per treatment.
WORKS AMAZING to lift fine lines and plump your skin!
La Mer Eye Concentrate(Pricey --- but so far I love it and feel it was worth the investment!) ($169 for .05oz Jar)
I have found the HOLY GRAIL for BREAKOUTS in a little pink bottle called EradiKate! For $24 (it will last you forever!) you can ZAP zits before they even cause you issues by using this spot treatment overnight! PURCHASE ON AMAZON
This stuff is AMAZING! What I love most about it is that it doesn't go on SUPER thick (& clog my pours) like other night creams --- but it does its job of SUPER HYDRATING my skin! *PLUS it SMELLS GOOD!*
I started using this about 30 days ago and have noticed a huge improvement in the overall tone and hydration of my skin. I was honestly skeptical because of the insane price... but I feel like it has been worth the investment! Only get one face ;-)
On a budget: Derm Exclusive:Before I had the money to invest and try other products, I used solely Derm Exclusive for YEARS (& still use many of the Derm products in tandem with the others I mentioned above) They are inexpensive, yet EFFECTIVE and I highly recommend them to anyone who wants a regimen that doesn't break the bank!
Step 1: Micro Peel Resurfacing Pads (15 pads, 30-day supply) Reveal super-smooth skin with a professional-strength peel that exfoliates dead cells and shrinks the appearance of pores.
Step 2: Intensive Repair Serum (1 fl. oz., 30-day supply) Treat dark spots and uneven texture similar to a laser treatment as you help speed recovery from past damage and restore skin's luminosity.
Step 3: Collagen Lift (1 fl. oz., 30-day supply) Boost collagen production for firm, lifted skin and reduce the appearance of wrinkles with astonishingly powerful results.
Step 4: Fill & Freeze Wrinkle Treatment (0.04 fl. oz., 30-day supply) Instantly plump lines and wrinkles while reducing the appearance of dark circles. This breakthrough product gives injections and fillers a run for their money!
I hope these recommendations help! Remember, just like working out... you have to be patient & CONSISTENT while waiting for results! It takes an investment to start, but the PAY-OFF, in my opinion, is SO worth it!
"Make the rest of your life, the Best of your life!"
Ever feel like you have a CALLING on your life --- like you are DIFFERENT? MADE for MORE?!
My entire life I heard this little voice inside me whisper, "Someday you are going to do something GREAT with your life." --- I didn't know HOW, I didn't know WHEN, I didn't know WHAT, and as I got older I even questioned WHY I would ever think I was anything special being a child of two alcoholics, poverty bound, high school dropout, ex-lingerie model, un-wed mother... surely God wouldn't see me as anything other than what the rest of the world saw... a failure.
That is until I really came toKNOW about whoGOD says I am when I surrender THAT OLD LIFE to Him. --- and when I did so, EVERYTHING changed. That WHISPER became the navigation to every decision I make, and today it leads me to this post about my newest project!
I've been blessed to grow a very successful business, literally from the GROUND, UP... and while it most definitely makes life easier to not have to worry about finances --- I am not about to take up a life on "Easy-Street" and simply count my blessings... I want to make my blessings COUNT in the lives of others by paying forward all I can to as MANY as I can.
So what is the PASSION PROJECT?
It's a COMBINATION of 4 of thee most important aspects of success in my life:
- FITNESS - FREEDOM (Financial & Time) - FAITH - FRIENDS(with like-minded goals & aspirations that will support & encourage you)
In 28 Days we will dive into our stories, replacing pain with PURPOSE, discover how to not only dream, but turn those dreams into GOALS with ACTION to help you make them a reality. We will focus on connecting to others through sharing your journey and how to break down the walls of the ONE thing holding you back from living your BEST life... You.
This is NOT for the person looking for the path of least resistance. It's for that person who knows about that whisper I was referring to above... because they too have heard it... and they are willing andREADY to do the WORK -- from the INSIDE,OUTto discover, uncover, and/or recover the PASSION & PURPOSE in their life.
To be considered, please complete the application below:
(*not accepting current coaches at this time, but will be running a group for you in the near future*)
I walked this beach today with my family --- the same beach I used to walk many early mornings 4 years ago when I initially lost my 1st home to foreclosure and had to move into a small apartment that a friend agreed to rent to me at a discount... the same beach that I would sit on in prayer, asking God to USE ME! Take the pain, disappointment, heartache and failures in my life and make them ALL worth while!
Being there again took me back to that place where there was so much uncertainty, fear and desperation. GOSH. I just didn't know if I was cut out for success... WHO WAS I to lead others...
THEN I REALIZED... I didn't have to worry about MY qualifications --- I wasn't cutting the path in the first place... God was. He constantly reassured me that He didn't call the qualified, He qualified the called and ALL I needed to do was remain humble, obedient and willing to WORK... and He would do the rest.
As we walked that beach today, ALL of God's work SHINED in front of me... my once sick premature baby, now a healthy 5 year old skipping off in front of me... my fears of failure, now washed away by unimaginable blessings of success...
It made my heart sink and sing at the same time... SINK, because I know there are SO MANY women out there still in that place I was 4 years ago... and SING, because I KNOW I have the opportunity to continue to stay humble, obedient and willing to work so that I can help them experience this same transformation!
I want to take this opportunity to say THANK YOU to everyone who has supported my walk throughout these past 4 years. It's been a WILD, truly BLESSED ride & it's been an HONOR to share it with so many of you! heart emoticon#loveyouheart emoticon
OMGeeeeeeee! Just refreshed my Coach Office and BAM! There it was... 30 THOUSAND + BOMBSHELL DYNASTY COACHES OFFICIALLY!!!
GAH! What a MIND-BLOWING moment to realize that without a single coach placed below me... My team and I were able to build a DYNASTY of our very own that has now grown to tens of thousands of people ALL working towards living life by design and positively impacting the world around them! heart emoticon
I wanted to include pics of my daughter and I because SHE was my WHY in the early days when the going was TOUGH, very low-paying, and very time consuming. It was building a secure future for HER that motivated me to keep pushing forward, ignore the nay-sayers, and follow my heart!
To every member of this team, I send a HUGE VIRTUAL HUG to you today! I am so proud of you, whether you have simply taken the first step and are just getting started... or whether you are a top 10 coach, now leading thousands yourself! What you do matters and makes a difference in more lives than you yet realize. KEEP PRESSING FORWARD and believing that your dreams are possible! heart emoticon
