    You are fearless. You are powerful. You are worthy. #beYOUtiful

    Oh, #beYOUtiful! You have blown us away with your true selves. Our #beYOUtiful campaign stresses the importance of overcoming self doubt, of listening to your innermost power girl and changing her conversation so that it remains positive and encouraging at all times. We believe that each one of you is a fearless, powerful and worthy individual—and through this campaign, we see that you believe that as well. 

    We see your beauty, we read your signs, and we encourage you to keep encouraging others to believe that they are #beYOUtiful, too. If you haven't read them yet, we encourage you to pour a delicious cup of coffee or tea and read through each one of our #beYOUtiful blog posts from the past few days. You will love what some of our amazing  Ambassadors have to say:

    "I am powerful, so are you." by Amanda Stewart

    "You have unlimited power." by Blair Harter

    "I am important (and so are you)." by Ashley Behnken-Sura

    "Take back your power." by Molly Egan

    "Step into your power." by Nina Caballero

    You are worthy of self-care. #beYOUtiful

    There are still a few days left to join the #beYOUtiful campaign, and to shop #beYOUtiful Motivate Wraps and limited edition "I am..." Motivate Wraps that are on sale. There is also plenty of time for you to embrace the concept of self-care. We'll let Jess of Form in Focus explain how self-care is more than bubble baths and massages:

    I lace up my shoes and head out the door into the crisp fall morning air. It’s a tough tempo workout and the negative thoughts threaten to creep in. Can I do this? Am I fast enough? What if I can’t hit the right paces? I look down. “I am worthy,” reads the wrap on my wrist. And I make the purposeful effort to redirect my thoughts. I am worthy of the effort needed for this tempo work. I am worthy of success, both in this run and in my life as a whole.

    What kind of worth do you place on your own self? Without realizing it, we place value on everything we do in life, a priority list, if you will. How far down that list do you have to go before you list yourself?

    I wear the words “I am worthy” as a reminder of the years it took to get to this point. To the point of recognition and acceptance that self-love is a continuous journey and I am worth the effort.

    I could talk about an infinite number of ways that we are each worthy, but the one that I struggle with the most is being worthy of my own time, of self-care. I used to struggle with being a perfectionist...let’s be real, I still struggle with being a perfectionist. And that meant focusing on crossing things off a to-do list every day, seeking that small dopamine rush every time a check mark was placed next to a task. Do you know how often an action related to self-care was placed on that list? Never.

    Now I make time for myself daily. But I want to clarify what that self-care looks like. It’s not bubble baths, buying myself big bouquets of flowers and chocolates, nor is it regular facials. Self-care is taking a step back and breathing. Self-care is in the small things. It is ten minutes of journaling, reading a novel for a half hour before bed, folding the three loads of laundry from five days ago, or meal prepping for the week. Self-care is doing what is necessary to reconnect with yourself and knowing that you are worthy of the time spent. Self-care can be saying no to social obligations, to stressful family situations, or having a hard conversation with a friend that you’ve been putting off. You are worth the care needed to be healthy, in body and in mind.

    I still have my to-do lists and I still get a little thrill as each item is crossed off, because some things you just can’t change. But now each morning is started with 15 minutes of time for me. That’s usually sipping a cup of coffee and journaling, but it can also be the not very pretty things in life.

    Know your worth. Take the time for self-care.

    The point is this: You are a priority. You are worth showing up for yourself. Every. Single. Day. You are worth the consistency, effort, and LOVE needed to pursue your dreams. You are infinitely worthy of the biggest dreams in the universe. You are worthy of the love you give yourself as well as the love you receive from others. I think the band The 1975 said it perfectly, “Why don’t you give yourself a try?”

    What does it mean to be fearless? #beYOUtiful

    In case you forgot, and it's clearly worth mentioning a million times, we want you to be fearless. It's what our #beYOUtiful campaign is all about. Being unapologetically, unafraid you. We'll let Jenny Schatzle tell you more:

    Do you know what FEAR stands for?

    Forget Everything And Run.

    Do you know where we run when we get fearful? We run back to what is comfortable, back to what we know is safe because fear is scary. Think about how many times you didn’t go after an opportunity because you were scared it wouldn’t work out. Maybe you didn’t ask for the raise at work because the thought of someone telling you "no" paralyzed you. How about relationships. Have you ever stayed in a toxic relationship both friend or intimate because the thought of leaving was scarier than staying? Or, how about a workout. How many times have we said "no" to a new workout because the voice in our head said that we wouldn’t be able to keep up?

    How many times have we let the story in our head convince us that it feels better to be comfortable than it does to go after it? Fearless doesn’t have to mean quitting your job and moving off the grid. It doesn't have to be this grandiose gesture to prove you are powerful. It means standing up to the fear and the negative voice in our own heads that tells us we can’t do it. Fearless means you no longer run back to what is comfortable and away from the unknown. Instead, you run towards it.

    Think about all the ways in which you want to change your life, yet the thought of it is overwhelming. Being fearless means taking little steps everyday towards being the best version of you. It’s those little everyday steps that eventually add up and create the big life change.

    Fearless means saying "yes" to new opportunities even though they scare you. It’s about asking for what you want in this world. It means trying the new workout class you’ve been thinking about for a year ,or signing up for the 5K you never thought you could do. It means asking for what you want at work and at home, and starting the conversation with bosses and spouses and friends. It means drawing more boundaries around your time and self-worth within your relationships.

    Fearless is about YOU being true to you and not allowing that negative voice to take over your actions. Whenever that fear sets in and you want to run back to what is comfortable, try this: Tell that negative voice in your head "not today!", and take a small step in the right direction. That, in my book, is FEARLESS.

    I am worthy. #beYOUtiful

    We make our Motivate Wraps...we make all of our products...because we believe in you. Because we believe you need your own cheerleader. But most importantly, we make our products and stand behind our #beYOUtiful campaign because we believe your self-worth is the key that will release your inner power and ultimately influence those around you in a positive manner. Believe that you are worth everything that comes your way. Believe that you are worthy of that inner power. Rachel from Rachel Recharged will explain this:

    This statement is a powerful one. It may even feel uncomfortable to read. The first time I wrote it on a post-it and taped it on my mirror at home, I cringed when I saw it. “Me? I’m worthy?” I am worthy. The more I said it out loud to myself, the more I started to believe it.

     

    I am worthy of love.
    I am worthy of success.
    I am worthy of self care.
    I am worthy of the good things that come to me.

    We are worthy of so many things that we are so quick to believe are not for us. The more I said it to myself, the more I knew that I really am worthy. I am worth it.

    When I started my own business, I jumped straight to fear: No one will want a part of what I’m creating. No one will see the worth in what I’m providing. Yet, the more I believed in myself, the more I exuded the confidence that I acquired as a business owner and my business began to grow. I allowed myself to step into a power that was waiting to be tapped into—all because I shifted a belief that was no longer serving me.

    I consistently implemented the affirmations above into my life. They may seem cheesy to some, but for me, they have allowed me to grow, to create change, and to slowly transform into my best self. I used to have these affirmations on my mirror, but now I wear them on my wrist so I can constantly be reminded in any state of doubt that I. AM. WORTHY.

    When I am in line with my passion, doing things that honor what I love to do, and showing up as my best self, I am worthy of receiving the gifts that life has to offer me!

    I truly believe that when we follow our dreams and take care of ourselves, we are on our paths to acknowledging our true self worth. Self care has become a non-negotiable in my life. It doesn’t have to be the typical “self care activities” we think of like taking a bath, getting a massage, or doing a face mask. It can mean taking a breath before a big meeting, pausing for five minutes when something is bothering us, or taking ourselves our to dinner for a meal that will bring joy. It can even be the little things.

    When we say yes to ourselves, that is self care.
    That is self love. That is honoring your self worth.

    And that, in essence, is the fire behind our #beYOUtiful campaign.

    Step into your power. #beYOUtiful

    When we talk about our #beYOUtiful campaign, we talk about harnessing our own power. We've heard a lot about this from some of our previous guest bloggers. And yes, we'll agree with you: Finding your own power is often easier said than done...but you just have to believe, and change your dialogue. Let Nina explain this:

    Maya Angelou once said, “if a human being dares to be bigger than the condition into which she or he was born, it means so can you. And so you can try to stretch, stretch, stretch yourself…”

    What would the world look like if we all stepped into our power? Our greatness. Our purpose. Our truth. Our light. Our essence. To me, these are all the same. Do you want to know something? We already have our greatness in us. We are born with it. Somewhere between birth and adulthood, we lose sight of our power because of other people's words, other people's perception of us, other people's opinions. Their words speak so loudly in our minds that we have to learn or re-learn what our power is in order to shine that light on the world.

    I used to be filled with what I call a ticker tape of self-doubt. Not a moment would go by without harsh, negative words running across my mind. Any time I made a decision, I was filled with anxiety. Any thought I had was tied to another judgmental thought. It took years of living in San Diego, under the sun and stars and palm trees to observe and learn about myself—and come to know and value myself. Here is what I learned: If you practice sitting in stillness and listen, eventually and over time, your own voice...your inner wisdom will tell you the truth of who you are.

    Once you learn the truth about who you are and what you can give to the world, your purpose, your power, your voice is limitless and infinite. How do you learn this truth? First, you have to listen to the words you speak to yourself and about yourself. Too often we fill our minds with limiting beliefs. We lean into self doubt and nurture it with judgement as if all the words that have been spoken to us about ourselves are true.

    They are not all true!

    The truth of who we are lies only in who we know ourselves to be, who we know we want to be, and the many intentional steps we take everyday to get us there!

    There is hope. We must reframe the stories and words in order to see ourselves in our true light again. How do we do this? Here are some tips you can start doing today to change the words and the way we speak to ourselves and step into your power:

    1) Notice how you speak to yourself. Do you speak to yourself in harsh and judgmental words and tones? If the answer is "yes," think of a person in your life who supports and cheers you on the most. How would that person speak to you? Would they use degrading language? Or would they uplift you and cheer you on? Start by speaking to yourself this way.

    2) If something negative comes up in your mind, pause. Ask yourself, "is this serving me?". If the answer is "no," repeat Step 1.

    3) Know that your words matter. A part of changing the narrative in our mind is changing how we treat others. We can speak to others in kind and respectful tones even when, and especially when, we disagree with them.

    4) Be patient with yourself. Progress does not come overnight. Do the work and treat yourself with the love and patience you show other people. 

    5) Speak positively to yourself.  Use words of empowerment and encouragement, even if you don't believe them yet.

    Ultimately, seek what you want from your life and eventually the running thoughts will be replaced with a calm mind. Here's what I said to myself. Feel free to speak this to yourself (or change it to suit you). Know that I am rooting for you:

    I am grateful.
    I am more than enough.
    I am intuitive and courageous.
    I am strong beyond what I even know.
    There are dreams on the other side of this struggle that are waiting for me.
    I am coming for them.

    Those dreams are definitely waiting for you, and we're here to help you achieve them. Pick up one of our #beYOUtiful Motivate Wraps, or one of our new limited edition "I am..." Motivate Wraps.
