Six Guideposts for Life & Business Success

In this post, we share six strategies with actionable tasks and resources to guide you toward life and business success.

SixGuideposts

1. Know Your Why

What is your big WHY – your Purpose? When you discover with complete clarity your WHY, then you have uncovered the absolute secret to success for your life and business. You are at your best when your heart (passion) and mind (attitude) are in alignment and connected with your true path and purpose. This is true in your personal life as well as with your business. When they aren’t aligned, there is always a degree of dissatisfaction and unrest.

12 Signs that Your Are Living Your Passion – Your Life Purpose

  1. You lose track of time.
  1. You smile and laugh more.
  1. What you are doing does not feel like “work”. It brings joy and a true sense of accomplishment and satisfaction.
  1. You trust your heart and your instincts and act on it.
  1. You really light up and become animated when you talk about what you do.
  1. Your friends and loved ones notice the shift and either support you unconditionally or you may actually find they react in a negative, unsupportive fashion.
  1. Everything just flows better and more effortlessly. Synchronicities happen. You find yourself meeting the right people at the perfect time.
  1. You feel truly alive. You are inspired all the time.
  1. You find the courage to take the risks necessary for growth and to move forward.
  1. You no longer feel like you are selling out for a paycheck. Your income and purpose are in alignment.
  1. You no longer have that nagging feeling that something is missing in your life.
  1. You are enjoying the journey (living in the now) and know it’s not about the destination. It’s about the relationships and shared experiences along your path.

  Questions for self-reflection on your current situation, business, or focus area:

  • Why did I choose this business?
  • Why do I want to stay in business for myself?
  • Why do I want to grow my business, increase my income?
  • Why do I want to systematize my business?
  • Why do I want to improve my health?
  • Why do I want to spend more quality time with my kids, spouse, others?
  • Why do I want to ….. ____________ ?
  • Why is all this so important to me?
  • By the way, it’s never really about the money. It’s about what the money will allow you to do, what it will bring to your life and for your family.

  Questions & Exercises to Help You Discover Your True Passion/Purpose

  • What are your natural strengths, skills, talents?
  • Take a look at past work, career choices – what did you like? Dislike?
  • What do people ask you to help them with?
  • What activities really bring joy and fulfillment in your life?
  • Who inspires you most? Why?
  • What causes do you strongly believe in and connect with?
  • What would you do if… you only had one year to live? unlimited resources and money at your disposal?

  Your Eulogy Exercise Using the questions below, write your eulogy.

  • What do you want your eulogy to consist of?
  • What would your lifetime achievements be?
  • What would matter the most at the end of your life?
  • What will be your legacy?
  • What do you want o be remembered for?
  • What stories will friends and loved ones recount about you and your impact on them?

Is it what you are doing right NOW?  If not, why not?  What is standing in you way or holding you back?

2. Have a Plan

Know Your Desired Outcomes.   

Commit to a written Business and/or Life Plan with clearly defined, vibrant goals.

Are you aligned and connected with your true passion and purpose? A business plan and set of accompanying written goals is meaningless and not effective without clarity and alignment with your true passion.

Make your goals S.M.A.R.T.

  • S    Specific; Simple
  • M   Measurable; Meaningful to You
  • A    As if Now; Achievable; All areas of your life
  • R    Realistic; Responsible
  • T    Timeframe; Toward What You Want 

Attitude

3. Take action

Persistence
Be willing to do what it takes to accomplish your outcomes.  Be consistent in your actions and build the positive habits. Practice leads to mastery.

Small Steps
Any movement or action, no matter how small, toward what you desire is all it takes to build momentum and achieve results.

Intention
Focus on what you want (not on what you don't want). Create a Success Action Plan that outlines the action steps (tasks and habits) to move you toward your desired outcome.

Business Examples Use your business plan to create your daily, weekly, monthly ACTION PLAN.  These action plans will outline the income-producing activities, and other tasks you are committed to, in order to achieve your desired outcomes. Review and stick to your Action Plan DAILY!

  • Write your Action Plan on index cards and keep one with you
  • Put it on your mobile device in an app that you use frequently
  • Take a photo of it and make it your lock screen
  • Put one in front of your day planner
  • Post it in your workspace
  • Tape it to your bathroom mirror and review it daily
  • Review and record your results daily also

Income producing activities include:

  1. Make ______ contacts daily
  2. Send ______ personal notes weekly
  3. Add _______ people to your database weekly or monthly
  4. Contact _____ FSBOs weekly
  5. Contact ______ Expireds weekly
  6. Hold ______ effective open houses weekly/ monthly
  7. Mail or email to your SOI/Past clients valuable market information monthly
  8. Mail or email to your designated farm of ______  properties monthly
  9. Door knock/ door drop _________ houses monthly
  10. Take ____ past client to lunch monthly
  11. Network with ____ business to business referrals monthly
  12. Hand out 5-10 business cards, 5 days/week and actively ask for business or for permission to add them to your database

Life Plan Examples Use the WBNL Intentions Map & Journal template

  • Choose 1-2 areas of your life to focus on now
  • Set your intention for those areas by committing to the one action that when you do it consistently will make the most positive impact on your desired outcome
  • Here are some ideas:
  • 10-15 minutes of walking
  • 10 minutes of meditation
  • 1 conversation or phone call with a prospect, customer
  • Write or journal for 10 minutes
  • Exercise, yoga, stretching for 15 minutes

Business/Career Ideas:

  • Handout one business card and have one conversation about real estate or your business
  • 1 new person added to your database
  • One connection daily with someone in your database

 

4. Measure & Track Your Results

Be accountable!  You can’t improve what you don’t measure.  Identify the method for determining achievement of your goal/outcome and track your progress.  An excellent tracking system will allow you to make necessary course corrections and adjustments as well as gage your overall success.

Business: The WBNL Business Plan integrates tracking and measurement tools

  • Reconcile Your Monthly Budgets
  • Track Your Production & Escrows

Life: Apps for tracking goals, health, fitness, and well-being

 

5. Be Open to Change

Change is constant and requires you to remain flexible and adaptable. Embrace change – don’t fear it. There is always opportunity when circumstances or your environment changes. Find those opportunities and act on them right away instead of being reactive.

Be flexible.  The Law of Requisite Variety states that the person or system with the most flexibility of behavior will control the system and eventual outcomes. Operate from a physiology and psychology of excellence. 

Be in control of your mindset (attitude).  Choose to be in a powerful, positive state. Take Personal Responsibility for your actions. Choose the “cause” side of the equation - be the victor not the victim - take personal responsibility for your actions.

Be aware of your constitution, health and physical well-being.  Ingest healthy, nutritious foods that uplift you and give you energy. Moderation is the key!

 

6. Ask for Help!

Collaborate. The journey is so much more fun and enjoyable when you share it with others.

Hire someone – a coach, consultant, mentor, expert, professional – to assist you in reaching your desired outcome(s).  The right person can offer a third party perspective; provide necessary guidance, accountability and expertise.

Find an accountability partner. Form or join a mastermind group to support each other’s goals and commitments.

Download Our Template to Set Your Intentions and Focus for the Year

The ancient art of Feng Shui teaches the power of intention. I have studied Feng Shui and applied its principles in my life and career and found it to be a powerful and fun way to set intentions and focus on what I want to create in my life. With that in mind, we designed the Intentions – Focus Map and Journal template to support you in setting clear intentions for the Year. 

Clarity is so critical in setting your intentions. Once you are clear, you can make a commitment to yourself to do it. Setting your intentions is about understanding what you’re doing, why you’re doing it, and how you’re going to do it.

“Clarity accounts for probably 80% of success and happiness. Lack of clarity is probably more responsible for frustration and underachievement than any other single factor.  Your success in life will be largely determined by how clear you are about what it is you really, really want.”  – Brian Tracy

Use the Intentions Map to set your key focus and attention in all areas.  

Reflect on the past year and do a review of each area. Take the time to stop, reflect and celebrate the successes of the past and not just focus on what you did not achieve. Ask and answer some or all of these questions to get you in the creative mind flow:

  • What did you accomplish?
  • What are you most grateful for in each area?
  • What are obstacles or challenges that got on the way?
  • What opportunities d you miss?
  • What lessons did you learn?

Now, set your intentions:

  • What is your primary focus or the each area?
  • What new experiences do you want to have this year?
  • What action are you willing to take to move toward what you want?
  • Each of the nine areas has a key focus word. What is your focus word for that area?

The bagua map of feng shui is traditionally used as an overlay for your living or office space. You can learn more about how to apply feng shui design and cures to your physical spaces by researching it online. For this strategy, we have adapted the map to use as a guide to nine key sectors of your life. Here are some further explanations of the nine areas and implementation ideas to get you started.

MyIntentions_FocusA F

A Review of the Nine Sectors

  1. WEALTH (Prosperity – Power) What does prosperity and abundance mean to you? If it’s related to money/income then what does having it do for you? Does it bring more freedom? Security? What can or do you accomplish because you have abundant resources or money? What is truly important to you? Now be intentional in your focus for this area. Could you save “x” dollars per month? Or maybe you are ready to improve your business growth and success this year by taking the next step like hiring a business or life coach or hiring an assistant?
  2. FAME (Reputation – Clarity) This area has to do with how the world sees you and your reputation. Could you start by giving your online presence a facelift or upgrade? How about a new business photo? Do you have a professional logo that reflects who you are as a business? How about enhancing your appearance with a new hairstyle or wearing some new colors that complement you?
  3. RELATIONSHIP (Love – Partnership)This is the classic “love” area for romantic relationships however it is also for all kinds of relationships including business partnerships and clients. What one action in this area will move you toward your ultimate goal? If it’s finding a romantic partner, perhaps you can attend more social events or even try online dating.  How can you improve your business relationships or with your client database? It may be as simple as committing to more frequent face-to-face conversations. Remember, just one action or a shift in attitude in each area is all that is needed to get movement forward.
  4. FAMILY (Community – Growth): Is there a relationship with one family member to improve? What one thing could you do that will enhance the relationship with your family? How can you get involved in your local community?
  5. HEALTH (Balance – Well-Being): This is big focus for most of us. How about just committing to small actions in this area… walk a mile, drink “x” ounces of water or do a few minutes of yoga or stretching. How about 10 minutes of quiet meditation in the morning? You know what will work for you, but for the intention of this exercise, choose one action that you can accomplish each day without it being a burden.
  6. CREATIVITY (Children – Joy): How can you nurture your own creativity and inner child with a fun hobby or an artistic pursuit that you can focus on? If you don’t have kids, can you volunteer with kids or spend time with nieces and nephews?  If you have kids, can you find new ways to bond and spend quality time with them?
  7. KNOWLEDGE (Skills- Self-improvement): Always be learning! What skill(s) or training do you want to focus on this year? Is it for business or career? Is there a particular book to read, online class or live course you can attend for self-development?
  8. CAREER (Life Path – Purpose): It’s always a good time to refine and focus on your business and life plan. And, hopefully you have a detailed business plan and goals already… if not we can help! For this exercise, again keep it it small and actionable.  Will you hand out business cards to people you meet today? Start a mailing list with a monthly newsletter?
  9. TRAVEL (Helpful People- Compassion):The focus for this area is travel but also attracting helpful people into your life. Maybe you are searching for a mentor or mastermind group? How much do you give to others in the spirit of selfless service? How do you support and give back to your clients in business? Can you think of a way to give more to others?  Do you have specific travel intentions and plans for the new year? List them – where do you want to go, with whom and when?   Adventure awaits… just get up and get out! Let us help inspire you with your next travel adventure. Visit – WanderingButNotLost.com 

Use the Journal Template to record your activity for the day.  What did you accomplish?  Did any obstacles, excuses or challenges came up for you?  How do you feel?  Record your thoughts, feelings and actions.  We have also included an area to record what you are grateful for on this day.

Real Estate Tip #10 for 2017 - Get Up and Get Out More Often

At WBNL Coaching, we believe that getting up and getting out is an important part of reaching alignment and connection. In order for you to fire on all cylinders you need to have an open mind & be refreshed so that you are ready to take on the world. When you have truly identified what you love to do a magical thing can occur. Work and play can become synonymous. We’ve found that most of the best ideas occur when you allow yourself to get away from your office and computer. Move around, get inspired by nature, take a hike – do whatever leisure time activity you enjoy.

Americans are notorious for not taking enough time off. It is a part of the corporate structure that is stifling creativity and productivity. Block out time in your schedule to get away and take a break. It will recharge you and you’ll find that you are happier, more rested, and more eager to get back to work.

Some ideas to Get Up & Get Out!

  • Just move your body
  • Yoga
  • Daily exercise routine
  • Stretching exercises
  • Walking meditations
  • Walking meetings
  • Watch a sunset or sunrise
  • Take a daily walk
  • Participate in sports
  • Connect with nature
  • Go for a hike
  • Schedule and take vacations
  • Do more weekend getaways
  • Take a day to go explore and have fun

Real Estate Tip #2 for 2017: Start the Day with Your Morning Ritual

 

 

 

Avoid the urge to check your phone, notifications, email and social media as the very first thing you do when you wake up in the morning.


Instead, design and adopt a daily ritual to start your day in a positive mindset.  Show up every day: Mentally, Physically, Emotionally and Spiritually.  Now more than ever it’s important to get up, do your morning mindset ritual, get dressed for success and get to work!

Some suggestions:

  • Morning meditation or prayer
  • Focused Breathing Exercise
  • Exercise, stretch, take a walk
  • Review your goals and say your affirmations
  • Eat a healthy breakfast
  • Read for 30 minutes
  • Listen to a podcast
  • Then, review your day’s tasks and schedule

Take the #WBNLGratitude 22-Day Challenge!

WBNL_Gratitude.jpg

Practicing gratitude daily creates awareness and appreciation for what we do have that is positive and life affirming. It gives us perspective. Gratitude fosters a sense of overall well-being and contentment when we incorporate it into our daily awareness.And let’s face it, in this day and age of 24/7 access to everything from constant use of our smart phones and social media to online and cable tv channels, we are bombarded with information.

Unfortunately, much of this information-overload is negative, chaotic and disturbing news, images, and drama. This constant bombardment of information, updates and notifications can negatively impact our health, stress levels, and overall attitude.

What we focus on we attract into our lives. So what are you focusing on right now? Is it positive or negative? Does it lift you up or break you down?

Join our #WBNLGratitude 22-Day Challenge

At Wandering But Not Lost (WBNL) Coaching, we are sponsoring a 22-day Gratitude Challenge to encourage the development of a daily habit and practice of gratitude. Here is how it works and how you can participate:

  • Make a commitment to the challenge and just begin today!
  • You need an Instagram account
  • For the next 22 days, post a daily image on Instagram with what or who you are grateful for today.
  • Use the hashtag #WBNLGratitude in your daily post.
  • All the #WBNLGratitude posts will be included on our social wall: https://wbnlcoaching.com/wbnl-social-live/
  • All participants who complete the 22-day challenge (prior to 12-31-16) will receive a T-Shirt of their choice from our Wandering But Not Lost Shop.

Today I am grateful for....

    • What happened today that made you smile?
    • Who are you thankful for today?
    • Notice and record memorable moments
    • Notice and write down synchronicities
    • Celebrate the small things

More Gratitude Resources:

"Gratitude unlocks the fullness of life. It turns what we have into enough, and more. It turns denial into acceptance, chaos to order, confusion to clarity. It can turn a meal into a feast, a house into a home, a stranger into a friend. Gratitude makes sense of our past, brings peace for today and creates a vision for tomorrow."    - Melody Beattie

Share the #WBNLGratitude Challenge with your family, friends and co-workers!

Affirmations for A Successful Real Estate Business

Affirmations. simply put, are statements of belief.  The statement may be internal or external, positive or negative, personal or environmental. It may affirm and declare your success or your failure. The words you choose, the thoughts you think and emotions you feel are powerful and create your reality.  Affirmations are self fulfilling prophecies, they come true. Affirmations are most effective in the FIRST PERSON, PRESENT TENSE.

RealEstateAffirmations

Here are some real estate affirmations to consider revising for your business:

  1. Success Keys: I must think successful and act successful to be successful!
  2. Professional Value: The real estate commissions I receive are not just a reward for having a real estate license; they are payment for providing valuable professional services.
  3. Real Work: I do not avoid difficult tasks and uncomfortable situations. I get paid well for doing the things that unsuccessful people won’t do or can’t do.
  4. Enthusiasm and Confidence: I do not think, talk or act negatively about the real estate business. I know that my atti­tude affects my level of success and I always show enthusiasm and confidence to my customers, clients and fellow associates. I believe in my personal value and the value of my office and company.
  5. Consistent Prospecting: I do not wait for prospects to come to me. I actively seek‑out qualified prospects.
  6. Selling Situation: I do not allow myself to become bogged‑down in “busy work.” I assure my success by consistently getting into actual selling situations. I maximize my probability for success by working proven real estate systems.
  7. Reasonable Probability: I do not depend on luck and gamble on unrealistic possibilities. I only work on properties and with prospects where there is a reasonable probability of success.
  8. Worthy Clients: I don’t waste my time, energy, or money on unqualified clients. The clients and custom­ers I work with are worthy of my valuable professional services.
  9. Working Hours: I do not work the same hours as a salaried employee. I know that I must be available when prospects are available. I do not allow other people to interfere with my work schedule. I carefully guard my working hours.
  10. Concern, Responsibility and Control: I  accept responsibility for situations which are in my control. I show concern for all situations, but I only accept responsibility for controllable circumstances.
  11. Honesty and Benefits: I tell my custom­ers and clients the truth and sell them on the benefits.  I do not disguise reality by telling people only what they hope to hear.
  12. Persuasion: I do not argue with customers or clients or run from problems. I successfully persuade people with patience and benefits.
  13. Loose Ends: I do not rush through transactions leaving unsolved problems that I hope will disappear. I answer questions and concerns assuring future satisfaction.

  15. Specialization: I do not try to work with every prospect or on every property. I specialize on properties and with prospects where I have professional competency value and reasonable ability for success. I also have the personal desire to work with them in a professional man­ner.
  16. I Believe: I have the right to be successful. I have the ability to be successful. I am personally responsible for my level of success. I create my success through my thoughts and my actions!

12 Signs that You Are Living Your Passion and Life Purpose

What is your big WHY - your purpose - and are you living it?

What is your big WHY... your purpose ... your passion? And, most importantly, are you currently living it?

When you discover with complete clarity your WHY, then you have uncovered the absolute secret to success for your life and business. Of course knowing your WHY is not enough, you must take action daily (no matter how small the step) toward what you desire if you are not there yet.

You are at your best when your heart (passion) and mind (attitude) are in alignment and connected with your true path and purpose. This is true in your personal life as well as with your business. When they aren’t aligned, there is always a degree of dissatisfaction and unrest.

LinkedIN Post

It has been my experience as a business and life coach, that most of us are searching for our purpose and desire to live it fully. This is true of my own personal journey to fully embrace and live my dream of entrepreneurship and becoming a small business owner. While I have always been clear that my purpose and passion is coaching and training, only recently can I say that I am fully enjoying and experiencing these 12 signs that I am living my passion and purpose:

  1. You lose track of time. You find yourself working “on” and “in” your business and wonder where did the time go?
  1. You smile and laugh more. And others notice this about you.
  1. What you are doing does not feel like “work”. It brings joy and a true sense of accomplishment and satisfaction.
  1. You trust your heart and your instincts and act on it. You listen to your inner voice and the wisdom found within.
  1. You really light up and become animated when you talk about what you do.

  2. Your friends and loved ones notice the shift.  Interestingly they will fall into one of two camps. Many will support you unconditionally and be happy for you. Others, due to their own insecurities or fears, may actually react in a negative, unsupportive fashion. 
  1. Everything just flows better and more effortlessly. Synchronicities happen. You find yourself meeting the right people at the perfect time.
  1. You feel truly alive. You are inspired all the time.
  1. You find the courage to take the risks necessary for growth and to move forward.
  1. You no longer feel like you are selling out for a paycheck. Your income and purpose are in alignment.
  1. You no longer have that nagging feeling that something is missing in your life.  You finally feel the alignment and connection of your heart, mind and soul.
  1. You are enjoying the journey (living in the now) and know it’s not about the destination. It’s about the relationships and shared experiences along your path.

If you find yourself not relating to those 12 signs above, then I invite you to explore the following questions and exercises that have helped me and my clients work towards discovering and finally living our true passion and purpose.

Questions for self-reflection on your current situation, business, or focus area:

  • Why did I choose this business or career path?
  • Why do I want to stay in business for myself?
  • Why do I want to grow my business, increase my income?
  • Why do I want to systematize my business?
  • Why do I want to improve my health?
  • Why do I want to spend more quality time with my kids, spouse, others?
  • Why do I want to ….. ____________ ?
  • Why is all this so important to me?

By the way, it’s never really about the money. It’s about what the money will allow you to do, what it will bring to your life and for your family.

Questions & Exercises to Help You Discover Your True Passion/Purpose

  • What are your natural strengths, skills, talents?
  • Take a look at past work, career choices – what did you like? Dislike?
  • What do people ask you to help them with?
  • What activities really bring joy and fulfillment in your life?
  • Who inspires you most? Why?
  • What causes do you strongly believe in and connect with?
  • What would you do if… you only had one year to live? Unlimited resources and money at your disposal?

Your Eulogy Exercise
Using the questions below as a guide, write your eulogy.

  • What do you want your eulogy to consist of?
  • What would your lifetime achievements be?
  • What would matter the most at the end of your life?
  • What will be your legacy?
  • What do you want o be remembered for?
  • What stories will friends and loved ones recount about you and your impact on them?

Is it what you are doing right NOW?  If not, why not?  What is standing in you way or holding you back?

I am passionate about helping others discover and live their true potential and purpose.  I have been blessed with corporate positions in the Real Estate industry and the U.S. Army that supported my passion for leadership, coaching and training.  While those years were well spent and prepared me for where I am today, I always felt a sense that something was missing. It was always my burning desire to share my passion and purpose with others through my own company.  Once I finally assessed what was truly important to me and took that leap of faith, I discovered that collaboration with like-minded people was also something most important to me. As Co-Founder of Wandering But Not Lost Enterprises, I am now living that dream, my big WHY and experiencing daily the abundance and joy of being connected and aligned with my true passion and purpose.

Wandering But Not Lost is a business and life coaching company focused on helping real estate brokers and teams, entrepreneurs and small business owners that also incorporates the love of travel and adventure to find that delicate balance of work and play.

Once you are clear, you can make a commitment to yourself to do it.

Setting your intentions is about understanding what you're doing, why you're doing it, and how you're going to do it. The bagua map of feng shui is traditionally used as an overlay for your living or office space. You can learn more about how to apply feng shui design and cures to your physical spaces by researching it online. For this strategy, we have adapted the map to use as a guide to nine key sectors of your life and business.

MyIntentions_Focus600 MyIntentionsJournal600

Strategy #1: Use the Intentions Map to set your key focus and attention in all areas.   Reflect on the past year and do a review of each area. Take the time to stop, reflect and celebrate the successes of the past and not just focus on what you did not achieve. Ask and answer some or all of these questions to get you in the creative mind flow:

  • What did you accomplish?
  • What are you most grateful for in each area?
  • What are obstacles or challenges that got in the way?
  • What opportunities did you miss?
  • What lessons did you learn?

Now, set your intentions:

  • What is your primary focus for each area?
  • What new experiences do you want to have this year?
  • What action are you willing to take to move toward what you want?
  • Each of the nine areas has a key focus word. What is your focus word for that area?

Strategy #2: #ReachYourPeak100 Challenge Join our community and let us encourage and support you in reaching your goals or intentions for the year.

  • Choose one area (maximum of 2) to focus on for the next 100 days.
  • Set your intention for that area. Decide on one action or step that you are committed to that will move you forward.

Are You Living and Running Your Business with Intention and Purpose?

 

This video and the Holstee Manifesto has inspired me since I first saw it a few years ago. The Holstee Manifesto is a true call to action to live a life full of intention, creativity, passion, and community.

Wandering But Not Lost is in alignment with the Mission of Holstee.  They do it by creating impactful and artistic products that inspire action.  At WBNLCoaching, we do it through our business and life coaching services, products and online community.

(Holstee) Our mission is to help people live a reflective and intentional life. We do this by creating art that inspire's reflection and words that encourage action.

We believe that comes from within. In order to leave this world better than we found it, we need to first truly understand and appreciate who we are and what we value. From there we can take action, and begin living purpose driven and intentional lives that leave a positive ripple effect on the people and world around us.

Reach Your Peak in 2016 - Commit to 100 days of ONE Small Action

Theresa Leeds is a Realtor with Realty ONE Group in Henderson, NV who shared an inspirational story during a recent goals setting and business planning training I conducted.  She shares her inspiration behind the 100 days in the video.  She challenged her son who wants to be a DJ  to practice every day for 100 days and they would buy him the equipment he wanted.  

To support her son and lead by example, Theresa committed to at least 1 mile every day for the same 100 days.  As of the date of this video, she was on day 674.  Her positive habit has truly become a lifestyle now.
