Hi Team..

Happy Monday!

Another week... a holiday week.. a week of giving THANKS!

I want to start off by saying this...

Last night, I was pissed off.

Yup. Sunday night.

Frustrated. Pissed. Just Upset.

Let me tell you why...

I am tired.

  • Tired of "the rules"...
  • Tired of politicians telling me how to live my life...
  • Tired of the speculation over protocol on a virus in which nobody really knows anything about....
  • Tired of people saying: Just hang in there...
  • Tired of not being able to travel freely...
  • Tired of feeling shamed for not wearing a mask properly... 
  • Tired of standing 6 feet apart...
  • Tired of living in a state of disconnection..

Why?

Well none of these things represent me...

They don't represent who I stand for...

They are an interruption to my habits, routines, and my mission...

They are interfering with people building their dreams...

Most specifically- The American Dream..

Do we even know what that is anymore?

Well- let me read you the definition:

The American Dream is the belief that anyone, regardless of where they were born or what class they were born into, their age, their race or their creed, can attain their own version of success in a society where upward mobility is possible for everyone. 

The American Dream is achieved through sacrifice, risk-taking, and hard work, rather than by chance.

That is the American Dream.

That is what WE are all capable of achieving. 

So- when we are at the mercy of others managing us, that stands between us and the opportunity we have been given.

In a time of excuses, biases, "injustices", and other proclamations, I want to remind you of this: YOU ARE IN CHARGE OF YOUR OWN ECONOMY.

  • You make it happen.
  • You have the ability to live that dream cited above.
  • You decide what you focus on.
  • You decide WHO you give power to.
  • You decide the life you want to live.
  • You decide.

That is my message to YOU today.

That you are incredibly bold, powerful, and capable.

Capable of deciding what is best for YOU- uninfluenced.

Capable of making a choice.

Capable of doing what is best for YOU.

Do it for you.

Whatever it is.

Make the right choices- and move towards your dreams, your goals, and the life that you have always imagined for yourself.

Stand tall.

Stand strong.

Stand boldly.

That is what I want for you- and I hope you want for yourself.

Keep on pushing.

Never let ANYONE take your power away.

Let's GO!

Your Coach,

COACH DANA CAVALEA (Protector of The American Dream)
