Remember Hope, Discover Courage and Practice Love This New Year

"A new year will always give us the opportunity
 for a new beginning 
to a beautiful life story."

-Nancy Salmeron

I hope you had a wonderful Christmas with your loved ones. I had a quiet, but meaningful Christmas. It was a time of reflection and connection with my family. This Christmas I had to forgive some family members that brought hurt and disappointment to my life in 2016. I had to remind myself that to forgive others is to bring the gift of peace and love into my soul. It’s not about not holding others accountable for the pain they brought into my life, it’s about loving myself enough to let that hurt go. In doing this I could let go of bad karma and welcomed more positive vibrations into my life.

As we get ready to welcome the new year I want to wish you the best and remind you that next year will provide you with the opportunity to write a new beautiful story for yourself. Know that you are amazing and that everything you desire is ready to be given to you. Believe that you are worthy of bringing positive wonderful things into your life. But also, remember that you can attract negative things into your life if you let fear take the lead. Here are my three wishes for you for 2017.

May you remember hope.

When I reflect on my desires I know that hope is one that I must hold highly. I desire for you to always remember hope, and know that with hope the impossible is always possible. Hope is part of having a sound belief system. It’s part of practicing optimism. With hope, you understand that things will fall apart, but things will also come together. Without hope, you see a gray and unloving world. You never see the light at the end of the tunnel. I know that hope will guide you toward the light and never against it. Remember hope when things fall apart in 2017.

May you discover courage.

To live in fear is to live a half-life. To live a full life, you must embrace courage. There will be many doubts in 2017. There will be many moments that courage may want to come and play. Let it! I know that courage will push you to the unknown, will get you out of your comfort zone. With courage, you will discover your true essence, your strength. With courage on your side you will fulfill your destiny. In those moments of fear rediscover what you are made of. Rediscover courage.

May you practice love.

In the year to come I wish you to practice much love. To live in love is to also surrender to fear.  As you embrace love you will discover peace. To live in peace is to embrace love. Remember anything that is done with love will prosper. Love is why we are here. Love is what feels good. Fear is what feels sad. So, for 2017 I wish you much peace and love.

A new year is like a blank book that you can write. It’s never too late to have a different story. It’s never too late to have a different ending to a beautiful story. Remember to keep hope alive and believe in yourself and the power of your dreams. Have the courage and strength to persevere through difficult times, but above all remember to live in love. Until next time Believe. Change. Become. and have Happy New Year!

How to Learn More by Reflecting

"We don't know by doing.
We learn by reflecting on what we have done."


As I reflect on this past year I can’t help but feel proud. It has not been an easy year, yet it has been an adventurous, beautiful one. One of confusion, and lessons learned that in the end has brought clarity and peace to my journey. We have two more Monday’s before the new year and you must stop and see all your accomplishments as well as your failures. Look at your lessons learned as well and what needs to be done. It has been my pleasure to have shared some parts of my journey with you. I have loved to reflect on my life this far. I know, I have a lot of work to do to get to my true destination. But I am loving discovering who and what I am about. To move forward to a prosperous 2017, it’s important to be proud of all the amazing things this year has brought to you this far and to start projecting what you desire 2017, to bring. Here are some ideas on how to make sure 2017, is a year of prosperity and growth.

Reflect and be proud of all your minor and major accomplishments.

What are some amazing things that you accomplished this year? Can’t think of any? Well if you are reading this I assume you are alive. So being alive is a great accomplishment! Did you change careers or move up in your field? Did you mend a broken relationship? Did you identify what makes you come alive? Simply identifying what makes you come alive is a major accomplishment! Don’t disguard the small simple things you did this year. It’s the little things that become big changes in our lives. I am proud of honoring what I said. I am proud to say that in 2017, I will be a published author. I attribute this to honoring what I say. I take pride in this, because I believe honoring your words make them become reality. Try it and see! Remember it’s the little things we do. I have other small accomplishments that have resulted in big changes in my life. How about you?

Learn and let go.

Learn from your failures or learn the lesson and move on. Failures make you grow and the contribute to a better you. They teach you what you don’t know and what you must do different. Have you learned from your lesson to not repeat it? There were many mistakes that became learned lessons in my life this past year. One lesson is to practice patience and to stay present. In my business, you must be patience. My clients found me. As an educator, my clients (students) came to me. In the beginning, I was very aggressive pursuing clients. Today I let them find me. I love this feeling of trusting and letting go. Trust that you are love by something greater than yourself and let go.

Believe you are worthy of wonderful things and get clear.

You are worthy of only beautiful things. When you believe that you are worthy you accomplish so much more. Forgive yourself for past mistakes and get clear on your desires. What is that you want to accomplish next year? Be bold and know that everything you desire is waiting for you on the other side. I finally understand that I am worthy of all the wonderful things this world has to offer. I understand that when I shine I bring light for others to do the same. Please understand that you are worthy of every desire you want to manifest next year. And remember when you shine, our path becomes lighter.

Surrender it all and stumble into joy.

After you have dedicated your all to your dreams and goals remember to surrender it all. As you do that you will also stumble in joy. There is such a peace that you will discover when you surrender yourself to your God or the universe. I work hard for my desires, but there comes a time when I surrender it to the universe. As I trust the universe to hold my desires, it brings me more blessings than I had originally thought. The perk of surrendering is being reminded that you deserve much more than you originally thought. Try it! Work for your desires, but then release it and see what happens.

As we wind down this year and welcome 2017 don’t forget how wonderful 2016 was to you. Count your blessings, look at your lessons learned and only manifest wonderful things for this 2017. Believe that it is possible to acquire everything and much more of your desires. Know that you are never alone and that indeed the universe has your back! I look forward to continue to grow with you this 2017. Until next Monday, Believe. Change. Become.

Are You Contributing Your Gifts to The World?

"We are waiting for your gifts. 
That something special that was only given to you."

Nancy Salmeron

I had a great conversation this morning with a wonderful friend. We were discussing that many of us will never get what we desire for our lives because we don’t believe we are worthy of our desires. We feel that wonderful careers or relationships happen to others but never to us. We tell ourselves that we are destined to be in bad relationships, horrible jobs because that is life. My goal today is to change this belief and let you know that you are mistaken. You are wrong! You are worthy of your desires! Actually, the reason you are born is to give love and seek what makes you come alive. Release yourself from these limiting beliefs. Know that if you are in this world it’s because you are more than just special, you are amazing! You must contribute to the world with your gifts. Have the courage to follow your dreams. Your dreams and desires are no accident they are waiting for you to accomplish them. Here are four tips on how to seek your bliss.

Examine your current beliefs.

What do you believe you deserve for your life? Do you have limiting beliefs? When I looked back at my limiting beliefs, I had a tough time believing that I could be a business owner. I thought that business owners had no heart that all they cared about was the bottom line, which was to make money. I rejected this idea because one does not get into education for the money, I thought I got into it for the love of teaching. Then I discovered that indeed I enjoyed it, but I would not do it for free. Sadly, I don’t think I know anybody that could afford to do it for free. We all have bills and a mortgage to pay so education also has a bottom line. Today, I understand what was holding me back and what to do to release myself from this limiting belief. What are your beliefs about success?

Focus on positive information.

I would suggest looking at motivational videos or reading inspirational books about success. Reading my blog posts! I am an auditory person so I also like to listen to powerful talks about personal development when I drive to meetings or appointments. Focusing on positive people in your life is part of staying positive. I know I have said this before but, “we are the company that we keep.” Is your circle pushing you to your best life or keeping you away from it? Evaluate these friendships and eliminate, eliminate, eliminate.

Focus on manifesting what you desire.

What your desire? You must focus on it and act like you already have it. How do you do that you ask? By showing gratitude for what you have and staying positive. Also, believe that what you are wanting is on its way. The truth is that what you want is already yours you just should match your energy with that of the universe. It’s like a puzzle piece that is looking for the right fit, so are your desires.

Train your subconscious mind to believe.

The subconscious mind is the mind that you need to train so that your desires could flourish. This was very difficult for me because I used to be very practical and reasonable. This was what my subconscious mind was used to. I came in like a wrecking ball, destroying everything that I believed was real to my life. I then demanded my subconscious mind to be open to endless possibilities that it had never experience. Train it to believe that what you truly desire will be a sure thing, but do remember to give it time.

It is very important to be cognizant of your thoughts and train your subconscious. Your thoughts and beliefs are the secret to your success. To get the life you want, it takes awareness and responsibility of those thoughts. Change those negative vibrations so that your life can change from an OK to WOW! Don't forget you are worthy of everything you desire! Until next Monday watch your thoughts and don’t forget to Believe. Change. Become!
