We all have moments when we stop and wonder, “What is my purpose?” That is where the “What is Your IT” series comes in! It is a journey of self-discovery where you take the time to identify what makes you unique and special. Everyone’s “IT” is different, and there is no right or wrong answer. But once you find it, you can use it as inspiration to live your best life now, every day.
One key ingredient to living your best life is gratitude. But how do you maintain that attitude of gratitude when life is busy and stressful? In this blog post, we will explore different ways you can cultivate a grateful mind, body, and soul. Whether you’re an entrepreneur or just someone looking to improve your life, these tips will help you stay positive and present no matter what.
Mind: Start with a daily gratitude practice
One of the best ways to cultivate a grateful mindset is to make gratitude a habit. You can start with something as simple as writing down three things you are thankful for daily. It could be anything from the sunshine to the smile of a loved one. When you focus on what you are grateful for, you train your brain to look for the good things in life. And when you do that, you create a positive loop that helps you see even more things to be grateful for.
Body: Take care of yourself
Your body is your temple, and when you take care of it, you send a message to the universe that you value yourself. That means getting enough sleep, eating healthy foods, and moving your body regularly. Exercise is a great way to boost your mood and release endorphins, which are natural mood boosters. And when you feel good in your skin, you radiate positivity and joy.
Soul: Connect with something bigger than yourself
Having a sense of purpose is necessary for maintaining a grateful mindset. Many people find that connecting with something bigger than themselves helps them feel grounded and centered. That could be through meditation, prayer, or volunteering. When you give back to your community or practice mindfulness, you open yourself up to a bigger picture. And when you see how you fit in that picture, you realize how blessed you really are.
Mind: Surround yourself with positive influences
The people you surround yourself with significantly impact your mood and attitude. That is why it is crucial to surround yourself with people who uplift and inspire you. Seek out friends and mentors who share your values and goals. And do not be afraid to let go of relationships that drag you down. Remember, you are the sum of the five people you spend the most time with. Choose those people carefully.
Body: Practice self-care
Self-care is the ultimate expression of self-love. When you take time each day to do something that makes you feel good, you boost your mood and energy levels. That could be anything from taking a bath, reading a book, or going for a walk in nature. Whatever it is, ensure it is something you genuinely enjoy that nurtures your mind, body, and soul.
In the “What is Your IT” series, we have discussed your unique purpose and how to live your best life now. One important aspect of that journey is cultivating a grateful mind, body, and soul. By making gratitude a daily habit, taking care of your body, connecting with something bigger than yourself, surrounding yourself with positive influences, and practicing self-care, you open yourself up to a world of possibilities. Life is short, so why not make the most of it? Start today by focusing on what you are grateful for, and watch how your life transforms. No opportunity wasted!

Project You in the “What is Your IT” Series: The Power of Making Yourself a Priority
Are you ready to begin a transformative journey in discovering the essence of who you truly are? In this exciting series titled “Project You in the What is Your IT series,” we’ll dive deep into the secrets of living your best life as a business owner. Every entrepreneur’s unique “IT” deserves to be celebrated, and we’re here to help you do just that. We will cover everything from uncovering your true desires to closing the gap between them and reality. And it all starts with making yourself a priority. You are worthy of care, self-love, and indulgence in both your personal and business life. Let’s explore what it means to put yourself first.
In today’s fast-paced world, it’s easy to feel overwhelmed and put your needs on the back burner, especially when running a business. However, making yourself a priority is vital to your overall mental and physical well-being. Prioritizing yourself means giving yourself permission to say “no,” taking time off when needed, setting boundaries, and engaging in activities that bring you joy. Start by carving out time in your schedule to do something that makes you happy, like taking a dance or art class. I love to sew and read. These two activities bring me great joy. The more you prioritize yourself, the more your creativity and business will benefit.
Invest in yourself
Another way to prioritize yourself is to invest in yourself personally and professionally. Continuously educating yourself with books and podcasts or attending business conferences and seminars can take you to the next level in life and your career. Investing in yourself demonstrates the value you place on your dreams, aspirations, and who you are as a person. Investing in your physical health through exercise and healthy eating habits can also translate to a more confident and focused entrepreneurial mindset.
Do not delay self-prioritization
On the other hand, avoiding prioritizing yourself can lead to burnout, negatively affect your relationships with loved ones or business partners, and slow the growth of your business. My failure to prioritize myself kept me on a couch for eight years. My life improved beyond my wildest dreams when I prioritized my mind, body, and soul care. Recognizing your limitations allows you to honor your body’s and mind’s needs, ultimately leading to more productivity and success.
Feel free to ask for help. Support from a professional, trusted friend, family, or associate is essential to your success. Delegating tasks and responsibilities at home and work can help you free up time, reduce stress, and give you space to indulge in your needs and self-care practice. Asking for help is a sign of strength and wisdom, and it means you recognize the importance of investing in yourself as a person and a business owner.
Finally, Consider this
Making yourself a priority is essential to your well-being and overall success as an entrepreneur and in your personal life. It involves carving out time for activities that make you happy, investing in yourself, recognizing your limitations, and learning to delegate tasks to reduce your responsibilities. Prioritizing yourself translates to a more abundant life and business by increasing your confidence, creativity, and productivity levels while avoiding burnout. Remember, you are unique and worthy of care, attention, indulgence, and growth in all areas of your life. In the “What is Your IT” series, we’ll continue to explore more ways to unlock your unique potential and live your best life, both personally and professionally. Start today, and make yourself a priority in your journey to success. Join the Soulutionist Portal and learn how to make yourself a priority.
You hear people say it all the time: “Let “IT” go”. And though it may sound like a simple piece of advice, the underlying message can be transformative. The truth is many things are standing in the way of our progress and happiness, which may have served us in the past but are no longer necessary to our well-being or success. Whether it’s a bad habit, a toxic relationship, or a limiting belief, “letting “IT” go” can help stimulate personal growth, empower you to be the best version of yourself, enhance your spiritual growth, validate your vision for walking out your purpose, and ultimately sustain your peace and sense of gratitude.
Stimulate personal growth: It is not enough to recognize what is holding us back; we must also actively seek new opportunities for growth and development. When we let go of what no longer serves us, we create space for new experiences and new perspectives. The act of “letting “IT” go” may be uncomfortable and require effort, but it can also be freeing. By releasing old patterns, we create space for new ideas, new relationships, and new ways of living.
Empower you to be the best version of yourself: Each of us has a unique purpose and mission in life, but sometimes, we get bogged down in other people’s expectations or our own self-doubt. We can tap into our true potential when we let go of external pressures and negative self-talk. Letting go of things not aligned with our values and beliefs allows us to be intentional about what we want in life and make choices that align with our vision.
Rejuvenates Your Spiritual Walk: Letting go of what no longer serves you can also rejuvenate your spiritual walk. Whether or not you practice a particular religion, taking care of your spiritual well-being is crucial. Make a concise decision not to be burdened by negative energy; it can weigh heavily on your soul. But by letting go, you can open yourself up to positive and uplifting experiences that can bring new levels of joy and fulfillment to your life, deepening your spiritual practices.
Validate your vision for walking out your purpose: When we let go of the things that are not serving us, we start to live in alignment with our values and beliefs. Getting clear on our vision means that our actions, thoughts, and relationships all support our vision of who we are called to be. Knowing your vision is a powerful feeling that can fuel our sense of purpose and bring clarity to our decision-making process. When we know what we stand for and what we want, it is easier to make choices that honor our vision.
Encourage you to live your best life NOW; No Opportunity wasted: Life is too short to waste time on things or people that are not bringing us joy or fulfillment. By letting go of what is not serving us, we free up time and energy to focus on what truly matters. This could mean pursuing a new hobby, investing in a meaningful relationship, or starting a new business. When we approach life with a “no opportunity wasted” mindset, we become more intentional about how we spend our time, who we spend our time with, and what we devote our energy to.
Sustain your peace and sense of gratitude: Finally, letting go can help sustain our peace and sense of gratitude. When we hold onto things that are not serving us, we may experience stress, anxiety, or resentment. By contrast, we create space for peace, appreciation, and contentment when we let go. When we live in alignment with our values and beliefs, we are more likely to experience a sense of purpose and overall fulfillment that can sustain us through life’s challenges.
Letting “IT” Go is a Choice
The journey of letting “IT” go is not easy, but it is always worth it. By releasing what no longer serves us, we create space for personal growth, empowerment, spiritual rejuvenation, vision validation, self-encouragement, and intentional living. When we approach life with a “no opportunity wasted” mindset, we become more intentional about how we spend our time, who we spend our time with, and what we devote our energy to. Above all, letting go can help us sustain our peace and sense of gratitude – two things crucial for living our best lives NOW while creating a purpose-driven life. So, what are you waiting for?

Do you feel like you’re living your best life now? Are you constantly chasing after something, but it always seems to slip away? It’s time to take control of your life and start chasing “IT.” We all have something we want to achieve, whether it’s personal or business-related. The first step to success is to focus on making “IT” a priority. You will be amazed at how quickly you can close the gap between your desires and reality with a clear focus. I share my Triple S Steps (Strategy, Structure, and Systems) in this article I used to grow my email list. You can pick a personal or business goal, create a strategy, and achieve the desired results.
Step 1: Pick Your Area of Focus
The first step is to pick an area of your life or business that you want to improve. It could be anything from increasing your email list to improving your sales, losing weight, or learning a new skill. The key here is to pick something important to you that aligns with your long-term goals. Once you clearly understand what you want to achieve, you can move on to the next step.
Step 2: Create a Strategy
The next step is to create a strategy to achieve your desired outcome. Start by asking yourself what actions you need to take to get there. Suppose you’re working on building your email list, for example. In that case, your strategy might include:
- Creating a lead magnet.
- Promoting your opt-in form on social media.
- Collaborating with other bloggers in your niche.
The key here is to create a plan that is specific, measurable, achievable, relevant, and time-bound (SMART). Be sure also to set a realistic timeline for achieving your goal.
Step 3: Implement a Structure
Once you have a strategy, it’s time to implement a structure to ensure you stay on track. Your plan might include:
- Creating a daily or weekly schedule.
- Setting reminders.
- Keep track of your progress.
If you’re working on your email list, schedule time every day to create new content, engage with your subscribers, and promote your lead magnet. Creating a structure will make you more likely to stick to your plan and achieve your desired results.
Step 4: Establish a System
The final step is establishing a system that will enable you to achieve your desired results consistently. Your system might include automating specific tasks, delegating responsibilities, or creating standard operating procedures (SOPs). Suppose you’re working on your email list. In that case, you might use an email marketing platform to automate your email campaigns, hire a virtual assistant to manage your social media or create a checklist for promoting your content. By establishing a system, you’ll be able to streamline your workflow and focus on what really matters: achieving your goals.
Use The Triple S to Chase “IT”

Life is a journey full of ups and downs, twists and turns, and unexpected surprises. As human beings, we have a natural desire to improve our lives, be successful, and have fulfilling business and personal relationships. However, achieving all these goals can be challenging, and sometimes, we find ourselves trapped in the rat race of life, losing touch with our values and soul purpose. Soul searching can help us find clarity and realign our actions with our core values. In this blog post, we will explore the importance of soul searching, its benefits, and how to do it effectively to cultivate your authentic self.
Soul searching is a process of self-discovery that involves reflecting on your thoughts, emotions, attitudes, and beliefs. It is a way of looking inward and working to understand your true self. This practice helps you gain clarity, identify what you truly want and need, and align your actions and goals with your core values. When you are in touch with your inner self, you become more authentic and confident. When you soul search, you prepare yourself to become better equipped to handle challenges and make decisions that align with your purpose.
One of the benefits of soul searching is that it helps improve your relationships in all areas of your life. When you are true to yourself, you attract people who share similar values and beliefs, and you develop authentic connections with others. You also learn how to set healthy boundaries and avoid people who do not align with your values, which prevents toxic relations from draining your energy and time.
Another benefit of soul searching is that it helps you achieve your goals. When you know what you truly desire, you can create a plan that aligns with your vision and work towards it with clarity and focus. You become more productive, efficient, and effective because you are clear about your priorities and what you want to achieve.
To effectively do soul searching, you need to find a comfortable and quiet place where you can be alone with your thoughts. You can meditate, write in your journal, take a short walk in nature, or do any activity that helps you connect with your inner self. The point is to create a space to reflect and gain clarity about your life.
Another effective way to do soul searching is to ask yourself questions that promote introspection. Examples of these questions are:
• What are my core values and beliefs?
• What do I want to achieve in life?
• What are my fears and limiting beliefs?
• What negative habits or behaviors do I have that hold me back?
Taking the time to answer these questions honestly can help you identify areas of your life that need improvement and make positive changes that align with your soul’s purpose.
Soul searching is a powerful tool that, when practiced regularly, can help you cultivate your authentic self. It lets you gain clarity, identify what you truly want and need, and align your actions with your core values. When you are true to yourself, you attract positive relationships, achieve your goals, and live a fulfilling life. Therefore, develop the habit of making time to do soul searching regularly, and you will discover the beauty of your inner self and the power it holds to transform your life.
