Do you have dreams, visions, or unfulfilled ambitions? Do you sometimes think about the things you’d like to do then stop without even trying because you’re afraid you won’t have the energy or strength to complete?

What’s holding you back?

Does Your Body Hold You Back from Your Full Potential?Are you:

  • Tired?
  • Burned out?
  • Unfocused?
  • Uncomfortable?
  • Dealing with aches, pains, and health challenges that leave you with little energy to pursue anything outside of your day to day obligations?
  • Or perhaps you’re embarrassed about the extra weight you’re carrying around and are afraid to put yourself in the spotlight.

What if it didn’t have to be that way?  What if you could overcome your fears, refuel your energy tank, and get rid of all the excuses that hold you back?

Bustin' Excuses with Berkson

My friend Lindsey Berkson is my icon for someone who does not allow circumstances to get in the way of achieving her goals.  She was a “victim” since birth, yet refuses to see herself that way.  Her mom took DES while pregnant with her.  DES is a potent drug that prevents miscarriages and causes cancer and other very serious illnesses in the offspring.

As a result, Lindsey wound up with breast cancer and has had several organs removed as a result of the exposure.  She only has 1 kidney, half a thyroid gland, and only one ovary.

Lindsey Berkson - Living to PotentialThe prediction for premature death and debilitating illness for DES survivors is very high.

Lindsey decided at an early age that she was going to beat the odds.  As a result, she became an avid researcher in the health and nutrition field.  She learned early on that maintaining excellent nutrition and lifestyle habits were not only a good idea…they were crucial to the quality of life.

You’ll never believe what she is in the process of doing.  To me, it’s mind-blowing.  When she called me on Saturday and told me about it, I was shocked.  Most women in their twenties wouldn’t have the guts or the strength and stamina to do what she’s doing.   SHE’S WELL INTO MENOPAUSE and is missing some organs.  What an inspiration.

What is that dream in your heart?

What’s getting in the way?

Pick something you’d like to accomplish.   Write it down, then think of all the steps that need to be taken to get you there.  You can do it, if you believe you can and take really good care of yourself…

…like Lindsey.
