Instant Impact: You Deserve a Breakthrough

This newsletter was originally sent on November 18, 2021.

Hey there,

Well, we’re a week out from Thanksgiving here in the U.S.

This is your reminder to start planning how you’ll Tetris all your favorite sides onto your plate and accept that it’s okay if your plate weighs as much as newborn baby—indulge!

And, incase you forgot, Thanksgiving is, in fact, not celebrated in every country. Only 17 countries celebrate their own version of Thanksgiving, leaving 178 countries living gravy-free lives next Thursday.

Anyway, I’m an author and self-discovery coach, not a history professor. So let’s get back to regular programming: helping you live your best life.

Thanks for reading this week!

Avoiding things that bring you joy is like skipping a breath, both suck life out of you.

Do more of what makes you happy.


Reflecting on past experiences helps you understand what triggered specific mistakes and breakthroughs. To improve your life, avoid the triggers that caused the mistakes and repeat the triggers the created your breakthroughs.


Gratitude can serve as a flashlight that illuminates the most authentic version of yourself. The more you practice being grateful, the brighter your flashlight will shine.
