Diff, between Desire and Willpower

Wiz up party peeps, If I haven’t said it yet I want to say it now and profess my love for Brooke Castillo, she is a master life coach that I admire as well as stalk. LOL She wrote a little something that really touched my soul and I am going to share that with you today! LUCKY YOU

Brooke: There are two things you have to master to loose weight: Desire and Hunger

Desire for something delicious, Desire for entertainment, Desire for escape, Desire to avoid emotions: Understanding Hunger.

Ok so when Brooke wrote this, it got me to thinking… Most of us say I need the willpower to not eat or over eat, but I firmly believe if we understood the cause of our desire we can change how we look at food/weight.

OK OK hear me out. How many times have you said OOOOVAAYY I need more will power to work out to stop eating, stop yourself and say… I want the desire to work out and I want the desire to not overeat!!! 

You see what we did there we changed the way we thought about DESIRE, we changed how we viewed what the word means to us on an emotional higher level. (Brooke)– “And then we can free to only eat when we are truly hungry”


I have created a three step process GTG (Gratitude, Thought process, and Group) that will give you tools to guide you to finding the answers to all the questions you constantly repeat over and over in your mind. If your ready to take that leap, to believe in yourself. 

I’m Here

It has always been my mission in life to help others and to encourage people to become the best version of themselves. I got lots of opportunity through my military career to serve as both mentor, personal coach, and informal counselor. I have struggled through the years of battling my thoughts around depression from childhood abandonment, teenage doubts, midlife failures, various relationship dynamics, and deep-seated beliefs. It is the working, studying, and learning new habits and patterns that has expanded my mindset into a healthier way that has given me purpose. As a life coach, I offer you my ears, my heart, as well as my experience to guide you with specific tools for that can disrupt the limiting beliefs that are holding you back. I offer ways for you to exchange the negative habits and patterns in your life for a brighter stronger mindset. If the first thought you have each day are full of self-doubt or anxiety sets in on all the have tos and shoulds, if you continue through your day with a roller coaster of emotions about your life and / or relationships, or even if there is something you have been longing to do, but you keep getting in your own way, consider reaching out. Isn’t it about time you show up for you? Make this day the start to a new year of loving yourself. Let me be that beacon of light that helps you find the best version of yourself.
