Sugar Free Coaching
Welcome to Living Sugar Free. It's not a diet, it's a lifestyle.

Try #LivingSugarFree from non-essentials one day a week. Start with the thing you think you can't give up (coffee addicts, this means go a whole day without and be nice anyhow, just as you would expect a crack addict to do). *Air, water, nutrition, and love (expressed not received) are essential.    image

Just because it's legal and/or prescribed or over the counter, doesn't mean you're not addicted or that it's "good for you." Don't let legislation, or lack there of control your wellness.

***Disclaimer: Obviously if you are under Dr's care, you should consult them 1st... but if yr addicted to what they prescribed and not getting better, you may want to get a second opinion. #JustSayin

Shared from #LivingSugarFree #Leadership #FamilyValues
If you've got a family, be grateful and do right by them. No matter how your family unit is designed let it be a loving example to the world starting with you.

Don't chase $$ claiming it's all for them. Then ignore the why, by working yourself to death or neglecting family. You've got a team and you can't nurture it by throwing money at it.

Set an example of integrity and discipline your kids. Inspire your family to influence your community. Don't make excuses for them or encourage a "me and mine attitude." Don't blame others for their wrong and by all means teach them to take responsibility for their own choices and mistakes.

There's a not so fine line between being nice and being naive when making decisions about your friends, partners and social circles.
Birds Of A Feather  
Some folks deceive themselves into thinking that they are being nice when they carry on with relationships that are unfruitful and unproductive. But when you refuse to walk away from someone that you know lacks integrity, is cruel or manipulative it is because you fear the possibility of being alone.
Sadly when you chose to be influenced by people who don't treat you well, their bad behavior rubs off and you begin to adopt their habits and ways of treating others. In addition, you likely sabotage potential quality friendships by putting pressure on ...

#LivingSugarFree of Complainers: Don't be deceived by spirits of discontent, strife, and bitterness. Have you ever made the mistake of trying to break up a fight between two angry lovers? You probably still have the physical and/oremotional scars to remind you. The same thing happens when you get between God and his ungrateful children. You know the ones, no matter how things change or improve, if it's not their way, they are not happy. People need to learn their own lessons... When you get in the way you become their scapegoat; helping them avoid the actual lesson. My advice:
  1. Let complainers complain.
  2. Don't offer advice, or solutions unless they ask...
  3. And if you value your peace, by all means don't point out their misery.
If...

As the old folks used to say,
A hit dog will holler.
You can stop sending hate mail now... I did not say coffee is bad! I didn't say don't drink it. I am not a fan, but I may have a cup every blue moon. Black coffee is great for congestion and mocha latte is my sweet cheat. Coffee is not the devil. What I said was if you're a coach, therapist, advisor, whatever type of leader who is in the business of telling people how to live better... maybe stop telling the world you can't function without coffee while telling others how to be positive, eat right, be successful, healthy, get a job, an education or let go of addiction or any other problems. You can't teach what you don't know. Apparently you don't know how to function without co...

Have you seen that commercial where the lady is lugging her depreasion around, even after medication. Then they suggest she needs a second medicine to really control it. Seriously? I think it's time to admit, the medication may not be working. image Low self-esteem is a sign of self centeredness and deception. Not in all cases, but in many situations people are caught up in their own problems, with no time or care for those around them. Then they wonder why they feel alienated. If you only go around people when you need something, never accept invitations to spend time, and only call to complain; the person you're dumping on and pulling from will eventually follow the advice they are probably giving to you. To surround themselves with people wh...

If you believe that everyone should embrace their weirdness, don't accept limitations, stand up for what's good and true, and only focus on the positive... How come so many of you spend so much time downplaying or flat out insulting those who are different? Then trying to get me and other people to tone it down, don't ask too many questions, don't set the record straight, don't take it personal when cultural lies are perpetuated, or point out when even you have said something totally offensive or untrue? Freedom of speach was meant to protect us and the truth; not to be an aid to bullying, prejudice and discrimination. Not guilty? Well did you tell your click that they were being bullies when they did it or just watch? I've only seen one ...

Many church folks focus on legalism because it's easier than focusing on love. God is more concerned with your hate than he is with your hem line. If we obey every single commandment except love, we have failed. Think about it. The hard thing is dealing with humans. How are you obeying God's command to love??? If life is 20% what happens and 80% how we respond to it... well retaliation, pay back, revenge, or otherwise reacting to being wronged is what really holds you back. Let it go! And by let it go I don't mean pretend it didn't bother you and ignore the culprit. On the inside you are seething. I mean let it go by seeing the good in the situation as an opportunity for you and/or your offenders to learn and grow. Deuteronomy 30:16 NI...

#LivingSugarFree Do you know the difference between your habits and your personality? Have you developed your personality beyond your relationships? Who are you when no one else is around? Once you're comfortable with that you, being yourself in relationships and being accepted by others will come naturally without effort. When you make a plea to be accepted as you are, be sure you're not dumping the extra wait of unecessary criticism on people. Being a bully, playing the dozens or otherwise making fun of people is not a personality trait. It's a bad habit. You are the one who is not accepting of others if you make fun of them or constantly boss them around. Allowing other people to think for themselves is acceptance. Further more you a...

#TurnUpTuesday #BulliesandHaters get no energy. This post can help lots of folks reading it right now in various situations, once you figure out which shoe fits. No one knows if I'm talking to you but you! If you get mad, I'm definitely talking to you. image If you are a client or friend and get emotional, start calling names and twisting my words, I stop talking. No human or the spirits tormenting them, will ever steal my joy! To a logical person (logic is an actual discipline, don't throw the word around loosely), your point does not become more valid because you add, we talked about you and Johnny agrees." LOL!!! If anything your opinion is now less valid. There are laws of debate and logic (Google it, I'm not teaching that lesson ...

#LivingSugarFree PSA: These Are Not Entry Level Careers 1. Coach 2. President 3. Mayor 4. Doctor 5. Speaker 6. Counselor 7. Pastor 8. Consultant 9. Producer 10. Governor 11. Judge 12. Therapist 13. Guru 14. Sage 15. Sansai Taking advice, supporting, endorsing or otherwise investing in people with these titles? If so, you better damn well know what they did before and if they were any good at it. Not to mention their reputation for service and integrity. I could have made the list shorter to avoid redundency or longer to make it dumby proof. But I think you get the point. Let's discuss it... http://xeeme.com/AndréaRaquel

#LivingSugarFree #PMPSA: I understand that the only business some folks have online is to ride on the content of others and that's okay. But you look like an idiot if you comment on a post, blog or send a private message criticizing someone  or worse attempting to educate them, because of a post they made to spark discussion. You will look like a bigger idiot, if you did it cowardly in secret and they make your post public. Not only that (and you probably don't care about this or you wouldn't be doing it this way)... giving unsolicited, unfounded advice can be very dangerous. How do you know if your advice will help or hurt if you have no foundation for it except your own bias and opinion? image If you don't understand Marketing and/or...
