Ditch Self Guilt + Pass Me The Cookies
Ditch Self Guilt + Pass Me The Cookies

What if you woke up today and didn’t feel guilt for yesterday’s choices? Think about it. What are you currently feeling guilty about that is within the realm of your control?

Perhaps you gave in to the temptation of those delicious chocolate cookies. Did you immediately regret it or feel remorse the next day? What about your business endeavors? Did you write down a goal and not meet it the first time?

Did you get down on yourself and then try to brush it off like you’re a failure?


“I already messed up today, might as well wait to get on track next Monday”.


“I didn’t reach my goal. I obviously can’t make it happen.”


Did you know that these feelings of guilt mentioned above make you indulge EVEN MORE instead of better helping you stick to your goals? 


Do better + be better, today

Stop scolding

Self-guilt + scolding is the devil. It really is. It has the total opposite effect you’re actually trying to achieve. You go through the pain of belittling yourself and instead of being a rad babe who had a small slip-up; you’re now viewing yourself as a complete failure. Then guess what? You get this mindset of, “Well, shit, I already messed up, I might as well eat/drink whatever I want!” or “I’m obviously not cut out for this entrepreneurial crap”.

ditch the pity party

Seriously! The sorrier you feel the more likely it is you will give up on all of your goals ENTIRELY! When you feel sorry for yourself you instill the false belief that you can’t make your goals happen at all. #NOTHANKS

All you need to do is simply acknowledge that you messed up or didn’t reach a goal the first time and move on. You will get back on track much MUCH sooner when you’re not sulking in your mishaps. Don’t dwell—just move forward, do better, be better.

I used to believe that one small mistake would ruin my entire goal &/or progress. I would totally stress myself out because I had this overwhelming feeling that I had to be PERFECT ALL THE TIME in order to see the results I wanted, whether in business / projects &/or overall wellness. Now, I just wake up every single day with the intentions to KILL IT in all aspects of my life.

Try it. It’s a game changer.

2016 Goals - Rad Maverix

Welcome to the new + improved Rad Maverix Blog! I have been gearing up for the New Year and wanted to give my humble corner of the web a facelift. My intentions were to keep this site esthetically minimal yet resourceful. If you frequent often, you will likely see additional changes coming in the next few weeks, as I make myself at home and tweak small things here and there to make this the most inspiring place possible.

I am a member of a couple of groups on Facebook that houses the ideas, questions, frustrations and successes (& failures!) of being an entrepreneur. (And although, I have a day job I still consider myself a Boss Lady!) These groups are so inspiring that I find myself spending my lunch breaks catching up on all of the latest success posts and 2016 business goals, of sister-entrepreneurs. I love reading these and they’re inspiring but I also feel like I’m totally behind. What do I want to happen in 2016, personally + professionally? What are my goals? Do I have a plan or even a vision?

So I put the pen to paper and came up with my 2016 Goals:

  1. Continue the growth of Rad Maverix Brand

  2. Stay active + push goals at the gym

  3. Want less; give more

  4. Work harder on what matters

  5. Be present (less electronics)

  6. Figure out what I want to be when I grow up (just kidding, I’m never growing up, adulting is so overrated)

  7. Be bold, be fearless, be authentic

  8. Cultivate kindness + wellness

  9. Promote self-love

  10. Stay consistent + be supportive

These are just a few of the topics that you will be seeing on the blog in 2016. I also have an exciting blog series debuting in the near future that showcases some of the most inspiring boss babes I’ve ever met! Make sure to follow along on Facebook and Instagram so you don’t miss out on any upcoming giveaways or more importantly photos of my furbabes.
