In this blog, I shared about the darkest moments of my life during lockdown in pandemic.

Honestly, there have been so many that I thought I would just start with one. My YouTube channel got stolen in 2020, and I still remember how hard that was at the time to get all of my intellectual property back!

I have also been through my computer trying to jump to its death to another one trying to drink coffee.  On top of that, my car was at the shop for three months last year…

That is why I believe resilience is my superpower. For the most part, I know that my problems are first-world problems. It may seem privileged of me, but these are indeed painful for me and could harm my mental health, especially in these trying times. But I’m just glad that I overcame them with resilience and grit.

Resiliency requires changing your mindset and habits so that you can become unbreakable.

With all that drama, I had to bounce back. I’ve decided to start over and think about my old channel as a practice channel.

That being said, I want to help you to thrive and not just survive in these uncertain times.

I bought the domain to prove to myself that I am gritty and can get through anything.

I also launched my podcast about going from Stuck to Unstoppable to help you bounce back better and be #Unstoppable #Unbreakable and #Unshakable.


Here is a quote that inspired me from Holocaust survivor and author of “Man’s search for Meaning”, Victor Frankl. Dr. Meyer of the mental wellness society mentioned him this morning in his video on helping support Ukraine:

“Between stimulus and response, there is a space. In that space is our power to choose our response. In our response lies our growth and our freedom.”

― Viktor E. Frankl


Here are my Six Tips On How To Become Resilient AF!




Tip #1: Develop a resilient growth mindset

If you look at challenges as opportunities to grow, you’re more likely to take action to improve your mood, performance, and situation.

A resilient mindset is a set of  beliefs that includes how you see yourself, how you interact with others, and how you respond in times of uncertainty.

If you’re thinking about worst case scenarios, your brain defaults to the negative.

Here’s the good news, you can rewrite any negative story to a more positive one.

Your new story can be one of strength.

The great news is you’re a survivor and have already survived 100% of the worst things that have ever happened to you.

Whether it’s losing loved ones, career setbacks, a broken heart…yet here you are, still standing!

If you’re going through hell… keep going, get more determined than ever. You’ll look back with perspective and see how you’ve grown!

Our beliefs drive our behavior. If your story is negative, you’ll operate out of place of fear. Conversely, if you view this as one example of how adversity will not defeat you, you are more likely to take action.

Get comfortable with being uncomfortable. Things are gonna go wrong when we are stretching, learning, and growing. It’s all part of the process.


Tip #2: Stop trying to hustle all the time!

As an entrepreneur, I have heard “If you’re grinding, grind harder. If you’re hustling, hustle harder.” This is not a sustainable way to live.

By taking time off for self-care daily and on the weekends, I find that I have much more to give to others.

I say this because I realized that during the pandemic I have been putting a lot of pressure on myself and it was exhausting.

I want to help all you overachievers like me shut down your inner critic, that voice that tells you to do more and that you’re not enough. You can only fail if you quit, so keep going and don’t forget to have rest and enjoy the ride. You are enough!


Tip #3: Get support

It’s crazy for you to think you need to do everything on your own. If you’re finding yourself stuck, struggling, off your game, or in uncertainty, it’s okay to reach out for support.

I do. My sister, friends, coaches, and colleagues are there for me!

Embrace the fact that things usually won’t go as planned and support is needed.


Tip #4: Align yourself with your priorities and intentions

What if I told you that, your world would be completely turned upside down?

You could spend quality time with your family, reassess your priorities, and live in sweats. Perception is reality. It’s time to look for the silver linings!

Resilient people make sure their actions align with their intentions.

You might say your family is your number one priority, but do your behaviors reflect that? During uncertain times, I do things that support my physical and mental health as this aligns with my values. It’s time to get back to what is truly important.


Tip #5: Be grateful

To be resilient, cultivate gratitude. This helps you off-set negativity and primes your brain to start scanning for the good things and build a positive growth mindset.

Gratitude is the best predictor of well-being and a strong element of resilience.

When you practice gratitude, your relationships get better, you’ll have lower blood pressure, and have less anxiety and depression. The benefits are almost immediate and limitless.

I am grateful to all of you!


Tip #6: Be optimistic

Optimism does not mean you see the world through rose-colored glasses. It means you are deliberate about the way you interpret the adversity in your life. Every situation, especially the crappy ones, provides an opportunity to choose your interpretation.

Plus, when we pay attention to the good things, we find more of them because we find what we’re looking for.

Utilize the power of positive thinking.

Creating a positive thought process pays off in every part of your life.

A positive outlook instills success in work, personal relationships, and has many health benefits. A positive outlook has been shown to reduce stress and can improve sleep, memory, and happiness.


Looking back If I had let my anxiety get the best of me, I could have watched my business crumble. Instead, I let myself feel it and then moved forward and made a complete pivot.
