The Warrior Synchronicities πŸ˜³πŸ™‹πŸ»β€β™€οΈπŸ˜¬

Hello there warriors! I missed connecting with you all last week as we enjoyed our little getaway in Hocking Hills, Ohio. We were surrounded by 7 ( how fitting for today…) acres of woods on the property. We explored waterfalls, caves, and the kids loved zip lining. It was a great Spring Break but now we are getting into this month of April.

I found that video pic courtesy of RocketFuel on YouTube and decided to use it for today. I’ve been trying to find some photos that show either the Ultimate Warrior or Warrior himself in new and different ways. This one of course shows no face paint but when he rocked the sunglasses and cap. All that hair was pulled back in 1996 for many interviews. Such a different look than what most fans were used to. He was talking about Jerry Lawler and “The King of the Ring.”

Now, let’s get into all of these Warrior synchronicities that I’m sure you’re interested to find out about. First, let’s look at the date once AGAIN. Yet another Wednesday of significance that falls on blog day. We have a three count these past few weeks! 4/14/14 was WWE’s RAW tribute to Warrior which I’ve blogged already. If I would’ve written last week, yet another synchronicity. 4/7/14 was Warrior’s final RAW appearance with his emotional farewell. Last year we had April 1st and 8th ( we all know those dates well) and this year it’s the 7th and 14th.

Another date to remember is this year’s Hall of Fame which was held on a Tuesday. Warrior passed on a Tuesday and how fitting that Rich Hering was the Warrior Award recipient. He has been with WWE for over 50 years now and was the one who went to Santa Fe, NM to help Dana and her girls. He knew Warrior for many years. What a great honor to receive the most ultimate and this well deserved award. Congrats to Rich and also Titus O’Neill for being this year’s winner. He is the first wrestler recognized for this award and Dana as an ambassador worked with Titus on many events. He does incredible charity work along with his own foundation. Thank you WWE for the recognition of these two great warriors.

Another “celebration” of sorts happened while I was away. This blog turned 4.5 years old on April 4th. The 4th month of being 4.5, 4 days before Warrior’s passing. More 4’s in store…. Thank you readers for staying with me and for those new, please stick around. I hope you are never disappointed.

All I will say about Warrior’s passing is this: 7 years, 7 letters, 7 in Heaven. There are 7 chapters in the book “A Life Lived Forever” so we have that too. I could say more about that number but I won’t. What I will add though is something I noticed on April 8th. Think WAY back if you’ve been here long enough or have even read my book “Spirit and Belief.” I had mentioned tulips blooming in my planter the year he passed and that there were 7. That many had never bloomed and haven’t in 7 years. The morning of the 8th, I noticed one burst in bloom. Only one but on THAT day. There’s another synchronicity and yes, I cried just a little standing with awe in the driveway alone staring at my one purple tulip. It has warmed up here in April very similar to 2014. I will ultimately remember. πŸ’™πŸ’œ

Did or do any of you get synchronicities similar? Yes, I am a numbers girl and have listed plenty but signs can be everywhere or anything if you truly stop, notice, and believe. It’s how it makes you FEEL that’s most important.

Warrior talked much about destiny, karma, and fate but I wonder if he ever had other signs? Things do come together for various reasons and get lined up by the Universe or “gods.” I DO know without any doubt, he realizes that power now. People say “rest in power” instead of “peace” and I believe there are times of rest up in parts unknown. Warrior did find peace before he passed but power- oh yes. Then and now. That’s energy which never goes away.

Synchronicities matter warriors so take notice however you can. I even found a blue Jay feather out in the grass on our trip. The kids were zip lining and my husband and I walked the dog around this big, wide open field. Warrior would love all the land and then at my feet was one of my signs. I looked upward and said to myself: “Thank you Warrior.” We can thank him for his years on this planet but he is always thanking us for the loyalty, support, and love shown to him despite naysayers. The years will go on as will synchronicities. Use your energy and get out there in the world. There will only be one Warrior but we all can be truly ultimate if we line up the synchronistic signs to always believe! πŸ™πŸ»βœ¨

A Genuine Trust πŸ’™πŸ’™#25

If any of you were here with me last week, remember how I said there would be another milestone? Well, here it is. Those two great men you see in that photo were part of WrestleMania XII which was 25 years ago TODAY. These Wednesdays, I tell ya… more will be coming so I hope you fans stick around! I’m not analyzing their quick squash match back in 1996 but getting to the heart here which was genuine trust. I know it wasn’t there all those years ago but slowly grew along with their relationship. That trust enabled both to work together and get the Ultimate Warrior in the WWE HOF where he belonged.

Many times I thought to write about Warrior and Triple H and then the idea got table turned. Destiny called and I listened. Now, it is time on their anniversary date so how fitting that I waited. I know Triple H has kept Warrior’s Ambassador Agreement personally and I am so grateful he shared it in the book: “A Life Lived Forever.” Also, so very ultimately grateful he worked tirelessly along with Steve Wilton to get the Ultimate Warrior’s legacy preserved in the WWE Universe.

I’ve mentioned before how I also had and sometimes continue to have trust issues. Many of us do but all for different reasons. Warrior was hurt and betrayed many times in his life so trust was very difficult for him. With his estrangement from Vince and company, it made sense. To us fans, Triple H was our hero! To Warrior, he was Paul forging a genuine trust that would indeed become ultimate.

With many relationships of mine that I truly desired, I was Triple H. (aka Paul) Sometimes, it would work well but then other times, the person opposite wouldn’t connect at all. Have you been on either side? I know better now and realize some relationships aren’t meant to be or even are irreparable. Those men worked at it and eventually got to the place they both wanted and needed. It doesn’t always happen that way for many of us. I’ve had to end relationships that pained me to do so. Often times I’d wonder if the other person was as upset as I was. This of course can be with family, friends, co-workers, or romantic partners.

I tried racking my brain to think of a time when someone truly kept fighting for me when I didn’t fight back. Ya know- when I’d be like Warrior was with Triple H and not returning the calls, emails, texts, or any communication. I honestly couldn’t even think of one time, not one. Yes, my husband would do this always ( fight for me) and maybe birth family could be obligatory for some but outside of those, nobody. I’m not saying this out of pity but just for the mere fact that we all have those more dominant traits or strengths. I can be stubborn too but usually am more of the fighter for people than they are for me. Times have changed of course and I do know a few that would have my back now.

Warrior did not want any relationship with WWE whatsoever but deep down, he was too hurt to admit that his career should be acknowledged. They just had to tell the right story and lots needed to happen getting that done.

Have you ever fought hard for someone that forged a genuine trust? It’s such a hard word as we put ourselves out there every single time. We need that middle once again of not trusting everyone and not trusting anyone. Relationships are a tug of war as both need to give and take on that rope which ties us into the ring of life. Once trust is started, it needs to keep going until it strengthens. Warrior was great at pushing his body to keep going but needed to push his emotions to keep going too.

I could’ve used a photo from their “controversial” WMXII match but always loved this one of just two friends hanging out. I hope you agree. I didn’t use it to be sad because we can’t dwell there. That’s affected me enough and in more ways than I will ever share. A genuine trust was finally made many years later as both men become allies. Can you say that about another? That’s tough to think about if you’ve never been in a situation similar. The other part of this equation is of course forgiveness. Warrior was able to do that during WMXXX weekend with many as it should be. I for one KNEW his HOF speech would not be bashing or criticizing extremely at all. Yes, his family was there but guess I just thought differently. Hopefully, 18 years would do that for any of us.

If you have genuine trust that became strong after both agreed to forgiveness, I am proud of you. Those men got to a good place together and I am extremely humbled all the time with that memory. HAPPY 25th WMXII ( other matches too!) Let’s be better by always building that genuine trust with others thru forgiveness. We are all worth fighting for. Your heart will tell you so. Keep the good ones like Warrior and Triple H did. πŸ‘πŸ‘πŸ»

P.S. I happened to find some videos from “Dayz with Jordan the Lion” who does travel vlogs. He was always a fan of Warrior’s and shares footage of where the gym was in AZ. He gets to go inside as it is now a bagel shop. No spoilers but some items are preserved!

*** He also visits the hotel area where Warrior passed. Emotional for sure. πŸ’” *** Another video is him traveling to CA where the old Gold’s Gym was located. Sting co-owned it and that was where he and Warrior worked out. It’s now a huge auto parts store.

Here is the link to Warrior’s old gym: https://youtu.be/2GA6xgRnS80 *** 19:33 in length.

P.P.S. We are going on a little vacation over Spring Break here but stay tuned for more milestones when I return!

Be a Champion πŸ’―πŸ‘πŸ»

***Before today’s post: Yet another YouTube situation. It seems Andrew William Wright’s documentary on Warrior called: “I Stand Alone” has been removed. So, for whatever reasons, it is no longer available. My apologies to any of you searching…

Alright, I know. That photo above of the Ultimate Warrior was not when he was a “champion” with a belt or title reign. I specifically chose one that wouldn’t depict being a champion in that way. It’s hard to believe I’ve never “wrestled” with this topic really. I probably have mentioned it multiple times or when referencing winning but not in the way it will be presented today.

The literal meaning of a champion is being the best and then having some sort of object to show off after a big win. We know this with all that sports and entertainment brings. You may even have your own personal collection of school related items that prove you won something as a champion. We tend to use stuff to equate with being the champion in our field of expertise. Ribbons for just participating just don’t cut it in our minds, do they? Why is this? Well, it’s all those societal rules and someone has to be on top to get rewarded. Guess what? In all this, it’s every one of us.

You read that right. We are all champions at different aspects of our lives. Sure, maybe you may get some recognition for a position you’ve attained and that should be celebrated. Hard work will earn that for you and we shouldn’t eliminate accolades. What I’m saying is that every person is a champion or at least I hope you agree. Maybe we don’t always make the best decisions or have regrets since none of us are perfect. A champion believes in themselves and doing good everyday. You may not even realize how you are one until it gets pointed out. Kinda like creating your impact of a few weeks ago.

What kind of champion are you? We need to champion ourselves and others by being the best we can. There will be mistakes but I know you will look at an experience and find what made you a champion. Was it that kind word to a stranger? Maybe it was that game you played with your kids? It doesn’t have to involve your actual paying job. Even after wrestling, Warrior continued on being a champion with his impassioned speeches most of all. Yes, he had other ventures but wanted his messages known and he did just that. Believing in yourself was it and still is to this day. If he even got one person to “always believe” in themselves, that was being a true champion. We all need to fight for those causes most dear to us in whatever way works.

If you need inspiration, turn to music. This might sound crazy but it works for me so why not? Look to all those songs that mention being a champion. They may invoke competition but it’s the FEELING behind a song, remember? I happen to love “We are the Champions” by Queen. I do think of Warrior with some lyrics as being bittersweet. The song “Roar” by Katy Perry also invokes being a champion. Whatever gets you motivated to get out there and make a difference, do it! We were born to be champions and your way will look different from another. Think also of virtues and many have I blogged on here. I can think of plenty that involve being a champion like honesty, integrity, a good character, respect, and so many more. Take those virtues and apply them to being a champion always.

It may be difficult to not feel pressure coming from all sides but you need to believe that what you do matters. Your life as a champion really does count. You may not be that exact champion who follows their own set of rules like someone else above but prove it your way. Being a champion isn’t always about winning some materialistic keepsake ( although they are nice to have.) It’s about using your perspectives, voice, beliefs, and actions to empower your own sense of self and others. It also isn’t just using your body like wrestlers do but using that brain and most importantly your heart you have been given.

As parents, we will certainly champion our kids in every situation. That gets them believing in themselves because they should. You don’t need to be a huge humanitarian or philanthropist to become a champion either. It all starts small with little things as I always stress. It begins in our homes and then moves outward into classrooms where teachers assume the champion role. Then, it expands into business and careers or even just living within our everyday lives.

So, warriors- how do you see yourself as a champion? Don’t look to the titles or belts like that of pro- wrestling but go within yourself and those virtues you possess. Use them to be a champion in whatever stage of this precious life you are in. Most of us won’t do those huge memorable acts known throughout the world but we can champion our own corner of the world.

It is in all of us if we just take the time and reflect on what the word champion truly is about. The Ultimate Warrior was a champion back then but we are champions of today. He is remembered and we will also be. It’s all up to you and how being a champion is brought to life by your own abilities to be one. πŸ™‹πŸ»β€β™€οΈπŸ˜‰

Create Your Impact❀️

Hey there warriors! Happy 2021 to all of you. πŸŽ‰ This year WILL be better than last but shouldn’t they all be anyway? We can create our own impact over these next twelve months and beyond but what will be just yours? I’ve mentioned legacies before or people with children wanting to one day leave for them something memorable. Let’s focus on this a little different though.

All of us, yes ALL of us do and will create a lasting impact specifically and may not even realize we are. I’m gonna play the numbers game again with me and Warrior. You can have your comparisons also if they work. I’ll reference those twelve months that make up a year just like the above1️⃣2️⃣. Technically, the Ultimate Warrior character was really only with the then WWF for four total years. Yep, only 4️⃣. I’m not counting his start in late 1986 (I believe) but from television on. You can stretch it to five because of in house shows as Dingo Warrior but the bulk of us fans knowing him was four total years. He did some comings and goings but from 1987-1990 all twelve months being four years.

My favorite time teaching was from 1991-1995 but I didn’t start until September. A little over four years for me but still very close. Four years for us both and creating such an impact.

Warrior knew he’d make an impact as did I but none of us totally knows just how or for the duration of our lives. When caught up in the fame of wrestling, it becomes a whirlwind of energy performing, meeting fans, and going from show to show. As a teacher, I’d have these lesson plans, teach them, and deal with all that little children brought on. It isn’t until someone physically thanks you for your impact and utters words that will forever resonate to your soul.

I’m attaching this video of an Italian man meeting his hero the Ultimate Warrior or Warrior at an event. It’s one of my favorites. If you are anything like me, tissues will be a must. THAT is the impact we make without truly realizing it. I had parents and kids say the sweetest things and was so young to fully grasp it back then. It’s stepping away and gaining that new perspective perhaps many years later which will bring in your humbleness.

I’ve had two stories about women who realized my impact and I was too oblivious to even notice. Years ago in high school, my best friend was totally opposite of me. She was outgoing, full of a million different career ideas, and always seemed to have a boyfriend. I was never jealous but just wanted a little of her confidence. I would give her advice but she rarely took it.

Flash forward about a dozen or so years later and we had still kept in touch. By then, our lives were very different as she had multiple jobs, 2 kids, and was going thru a frustrating personal life. I was happily married and stayed at home with my 2 kids. She throughly explained how jealous she was of ME and how I was there for my kids when she couldn’t be there for hers. I was the stable honest one even though I became bored easily. I loved staying home but had my moments. Can you say WOW! I never had any idea at all of her true feelings towards me. I saved that email for a long while. That is an impact right there.

Another time was during a yoga brunch of a few years ago. I sat with this woman as we exchanged some personal info about each other. After I went on about my blogs, book, website, working at home, volunteering at school, PTA, etc., she just stared at me. Sometimes I didn’t feel comfortable sharing some psychic gifts of mine and since I didn’t have a true “paying” job, it might not matter. She was wowed and said how awesome it all was. Her response to me:“All I do is work in a bank.” Needless to say, I was humbled yet again.

So, warriors can you relate your own wow moments of creating an impact? I bet you can if you think hard enough. Warrior was almost brought to tears with that fan and hugged him a few times. It can be either way that an impact is felt but again- until you hear actual WORDS, it might just become mundane or you feel like a robot. That’s probably how it was for Warrior back in his days of wrestling as is true for any of us caught up in an exciting opportunity. You go thru the motions but don’t get the impact until later on. Your impact will affect someone else just like theirs will affect you. Warrior’s did for me but I really was unaware of little ‘ol me affecting anyone. I’ve had a few people reach out concerning my work now and it means a lot, it truly does. I’m not saying to leave a comment instead of just a “like” but when we take the time, that impact is felt.

Create your impact but also thank those that have impacted you in your life. Let’s make that part of this new year of 2021. We had quite the impact last year but we need the good, we really do. The little things add up to bigger ones so never underestimate your impact at all to anyone.

*** I’m so excited to plan a DREAMS video as part of a series with my published author cousin soon! We will create quite the impact am sure with that topic. It’s coming…

Make it count warriors. Your impact leaves an ultimate mark however it is felt. πŸ’ͺπŸ»πŸ’š

Your Powerful Purpose

Do you know your purpose warriors? It just might not be what you’re thinking as most will probably equate purpose with a profession. Sure, it can be that partially but really- it’s so much more. It isn’t necessarily your titles in life either but the CORE of who or what you are.

That smiling man above knew his purpose and kept striving for that- always. Self belief became his purpose that propelled him to study the chiropractic field, bodybuilding, and then pro-wrestling. He also added becoming a true husband, father, artist, writer, speaker, and entrepreneur while still knowing his purpose. You can have multiple purposes but there will be one that does stick out most.

Think about your life for a moment. Underneath all the layers of what you do, can you identify with a genuine purpose? As kids, it’s so simple since we move towards independence from parents to siblings and then friends. We often tell our children that their purpose is to go to school without elaborating. That is true but as they age, purpose will come into their life more. It then becomes career driven from college and beyond. The question to ask yourself is WHY you do what you do. I sure hope your answer is more than just liking the job.

Expand your thinking like a warrior can. This is also a topic on my other blog Spirit and Belief. You need the why behind your purpose.

If you’re stuck- here’s a tip. Just do what you love or enjoy and that purpose will find you. You will know with the feelings behind your actions. It’s all about your feelings towards something. I always wanted to teach young kids and did but now find myself teaching adults in a different way. It found me by indirect acts of my own. Think about a “main event” message you want to passionately share with others. Mine became about intuition and busting myths based on my experiences. Quite the powerful purpose and one that brought about ways I could connect like this blog, YouTube videos, my other site, and book.

Even if you’re in a career you love, think of how to do more than just the job. Do you motivate with a powerful work ethic or ways of relating? Do others reciprocate? Warrior’s self belief methods were not for everyone considering his intensity behind them but you need to look further. He never wavered from his powerful purpose while encouraging others to find theirs.

One can say he was a performer or entertainer but then there’s the why again. No, wrestling wasn’t his first career choice but his purpose always was the same. Some might add other ideas to his message but belief was his ally more than another.

It shouldn’t have to be a struggle like many make it out to be. I realize some are forced into situations or even guilted into societal rules. Once you have a passion like I’ve said before, your purpose will come forth. We can say everyone’s purpose in life is to just be happy and that is true. We all have gifts though and yours need to be used in this great time you are given.

My passion ( or at least a biggie!) is of course writing but the purpose is to educate or inspire others recognizing signs along their journey. It is similar to Warrior’s after all as is my mission to carry his legacy forward.

Your powerful purpose isn’t just defined by what you do but the voice behind it. Every action you take, every thought, word, or anything with genuine intent becomes your purpose. If you go searching, you’ll become frustrated and filled with anxiety. Some may never know or some may just be content with simple things and realize that’s their purpose.

We all don’t need to be the Ultimate Warrior and there was only one him anyway. Our lives can take many different turns but look to the REAL you and what you want to put out there. Your powerful purpose will come. It may not be until later in life as maybe family dynamics change but you’ll be guided with activities you love doing.

Warrior always knew his purpose and stuck with it throughout his lifetime. As a spirit, he’s still all about belief and wants that message brought to life thru his warriors. Be happy with your powerful purpose because your CORE is truly ultimate! πŸ’«πŸ’œ

Shake Those Ropes!

Hi warriors! I missed writing last week but did have some personal family matters to attend with. So, am back with one of two topics that I can’t believe have never been blogged. Shaking ropes can be such a metaphor for us in life and we don’t need to literally be doing what the Ultimate Warrior did. He certainly got people’s attention though, didn’t he?πŸ˜‰πŸ‘πŸ»

Often times when I’d become frustrated with something, that expression of banging my head against a wall would surface. Now, it’s more like shaking ropes instead! It doesn’t need to just apply to acts of frustration but in other ways as well. How can you shake those ropes in life? Maybe you need to change things up a bit, ever so slowly. Perhaps it’s a big change that will really shake those ropes. Start small as I’ve mentioned and go with whatever feels right.

Drive a different way to work or quit your job altogether. Your ropes, your life warriors. Big or small. We all know to leave that comfort zone and get out of the mundane once in a while. What does that look like to you? Warrior always shook those ropes in and out of the ring by staying passionate about things he pursued. I hope you can say the same. Make your ordinary extraordinary by always shaking your ropes throughout life.

Being older doesn’t have to mean complacency although we crave normalcy as we age. Challenge yourself always to learn new things that will interest you. Think about moments where you didn’t shake ropes by not taking a chance. Would you regret it? Don’t worry about what others will think if you shake those ropes just a little which then can turn big. You need to be that warrior you were born to be.

I have shaken some ropes in my life but remember they are lessons so no regrets. The Ultimate Warrior was himself so expect naysayers. They will be there but it’s up to you in how to respond. Some may call it “ruffling feathers” or “upsetting an apple cart” but whatever the label, you determine your destiny. You, not anyone else. Stand up for yourself or a cause you believe in. Make your voice count by taking action and shaking your own ropes.

I remember standing up to two former bosses about issues at work. I know it sounds like Warrior but that’s us! Some were minor things but some were not. Usually confrontation isn’t my thing but sometimes it’s necessary. Again, I broke through another myth of those believing introverts won’t speak up and act. We do and I did. Even though those bosses seemed shocked to see me– ‘ lil ol’ me fighting with them in a way, it was worth it like my post of last time.

It doesn’t just need to apply to certain people that you disagree with. Just changing simple aspects will lead to more confidence so you can take that bigger step or rope shake. There probably won’t be fireworks shooting off behind you like the Ultimate Warrior had after his WrestleMania VI win but inside your head there could be. How cool is that? It’s all the FEELS, remember? Literally we aren’t shaking ropes but always striving to be better. You may not even get attention but deep down, it’ll be for yourself anyway.

Keep shaking those ropes warriors however you can. If something isn’t for you, you’ll know it and move on. If it is, keep going until that dream, goal, or task is truly ultimate! πŸ’«

Just like me not fully noticing shaking ropes as a blog post, you may not “see” something right in front of your face until later on. Kinda like my signs from Warrior at first. πŸ’™ Whatever the situations warriors, get pumped by giving your own ropes a good shake. We all need to but do it in a way that works. Whether or not you get noticed or see fireworks, you did it. The warrior spirit will always know as you’ve answered the call of the gods.

Know Your Worth πŸ‘πŸ‘πŸ»

Don’t be like Wayne and Garth from the 1992 movie “Wayne’s World” in front of Alice Cooper saying: “we’re not worthy!” O.K., maybe you’d feel differently around someone like rocker Alice Cooper or even the Ultimate Warrior himself! Let’s be more like the L’OrΓ©al hair color commercial that states:

“Because we’re worth it!” Yes, I know that’s for women but you men are worth it too. Worthy of happiness, worthy of greatness, worthy of living the best life you can. Did I feel worthy of Warrior’s guidance at first? Nope, but now I know better.

I remember to say I AM worthy each day during meditation. Sometimes I forget admittedly but most days I remember. This can be for anything you’d like to manifest. Maybe it’s simple, complicated, physical, spiritual, or any area of your life. Personal relationships, professional work, and anything in between matters too. For me it became inspiration to teach, mother, write, motivate, and learn. What does worthiness look like to you? Fill in this sentence: “I am worthy of … because….” Most people will reflect on their decisions and contemplate actions with worthiness.

For Warrior, everything he ever did was completely worth it to him, even the ugly battles. Perhaps in his mind, some situations could’ve been handled differently but worthiness- absolutely. It’s not selfish to attain for a feeling of worthiness but just be sure the ego doesn’t take over. We need to stay humble and be grateful for all of it. Each and every little moment. We are entitled to know our worth but not at the expense of diminishing others.

It all comes back to belief and Warrior had plenty of that. He believed he was worthy of great things and worked hard to know his worth. I hope whatever choices you make, your worthiness comes thru also. Don’t throw it away because you may feel it’s not for your life. Others can achieve thru worthiness so why not you? Not one person, not one can’t know their worth by choosing what they love. Make those decisions but then ask yourself if they were worth it. It’s kinda like regrets but with deeper meaning.

To be worthy means deserving respect and bring good enough. It’s attention in the right way. We ALL deserve those qualities, don’t we? Sometimes we are quick to tell someone else those comments but are slow delivering them to ourselves. Let’s not get beat up all the time because we think it’s ego based. It is not, truly it is not warriors.

Others may think differently or that you are elevating yourself to a new status but that’s where your control needs to come in. Never think you are better but always remember the worthiness is part of us all. The only one that can believe in your worth is YOU. People can tell you this but if you don’t believe, you’ll never get to that point of knowing your worth inside and out.

Think about how far you’ve come in life already. Make a list of times you felt worthy of something and when you didn’t. I hope your pros outnumber your cons but if they don’t, fix it! The only way others succeed is thru believing in the worthiness that they can. Plain and simple. There are many aspects that make us different but so many are the same. We all essentially want the same things deep down but how we get there is not always the aligned path or an easy one.

Know your worth warriors but if you don’t, examine that inner part of yourself and listen to it. Give yourself the gift of self-confidence and drill it in your brain everyday. Say: “I AM worth it!” as much and as many times as you need to. I will also practice this and sometimes need that boost just like you. We’re not Wayne and Garth but humbleness does matter. Just know how much you give comes back. Look to whoever or whatever you can as examples of worthiness. It is a difficult ultimate challenge but one that needs our attention.

~ Know your worth because you do truly deserve it. We all do. πŸ’œ

Disciplines of Destrucity

*** Before I begin today, just wanted to share with you Warrior fans some news. It was recently brought to my attention that Dana and Steve have taken down the Ultimate Warrior website. ( U.W.com) Am not sure of when this happened but since I have referenced it, it needed to be stated on here. I totally respect their privacy and decision although it has saddened me…. No details of course but perhaps financial or even not as much content anymore, it’s anybody’s guess. If looking for gear, the WWE shop may still have U.W. items but so wish his artwork was available to view ): For those who already knew, my heart is sad 😒 but we need to try and understand their reasons which am sure were difficult to make. ~~~ You all still have ME as I was told fans want stories more now than ever. I am humbled and will continue his legacy like I always have while creating one of my OWN..,

Whew…. O.K, moving on warriors…

Destrucity was Warrior’s word in which he constructed eight unique disciplines of self-belief. I share a brief story in my book Spirit and Belief about hanging up that word with its explanations on my bedroom wall 24 years ago. I love it’s tri-fold meaning ( a 3 count works well ya know!πŸ˜‰) That photo you see is from his first comic book but you will also notice Destrucity in the book A Life Lived Forever. This one however adds the third meaning of destiny and reality that the larger book omits.

Interestingly enough, Buddhism also has a system of eight. Their beliefs entail an eightfold path for life purpose. Not exactly like Destrucity but action and effort matter in both. You can look up all those but I always wondered if Warrior knew the Buddhism similarity. Makes me think for sure. πŸ€” He lists the first discipline as physical. This makes sense since we are physical beings here on Earth but remember the spirit is truly who we are. We have a mind that also connects to that true essence of us.

Obviously I connected with this tremendously back then or it wouldn’t have been written down and hung up. I remember getting one of those yellow legal pads and cutting a sheet of paper in half. Warrior lists matches for WMVI on that kind of paper in the book if you have a copy– just sayin’! Then, I used a red sharpie ( jogging that memory) and wrote them out with my own calligraphy style. They weren’t just words I wanted to write because they came from him. I was inspired and needed this idea in my life too. I never questioned the why of that word or any of its meanings. My soul knew it was part of my destiny also.

No, I was not nor will ever be as disciplined as he was but became willing to understand a new way of thinking. It took me years but finally I did apply some Destrucity to my life with meaning. I loved how he invented a new word with his style of belief. I actually do this too and get teased by my husband often. Mine are of course simpler and funny. Our pool jet is called the “bubbler” by me and I said that forever growing up with my first pools. I say the wind feels “blowy” outside and a few others. Do you have your own words too? I think it’s great to have a little secret language but one others will get if they know us. I’m usually the grammar queen but sometimes we just create what works. Formalities aren’t my thing necessarily and I know Warrior was like that too. They don’t always need to be a synonym but an actual new word of your invention.

You may not have Disciplines of Destrucity as an active force in your life but I bet you have others. Disciplines are tough unless they’re something we like or want to do. Not liking or needing make them more of a challenge. Instead of listing many disciplines on here, ask yourself what the hardest one is to do for you. It can be anything at all from personal situations to professional ones. Our free will always determines the disciplines we give the energy to. We need it all to thrive- yin and yang everyday.

I also made the connection with that number eight. He passed on April 8th which is so synchronistic with his disciplines being eight. So, we do have another three count with eight. Destrucity, Buddhism, and that unfortunate Tuesday in April 2014. Wow… This happens all the time and some ideas I don’t even have written ahead as notes.

So, warriors- do you follow a set of self-beliefs similar to Destrucity? I wished I would’ve saved the paper to use for this post but gained so much more on my journey. We need to always believe in order to succeed. Self-belief is also about self-care and without it, we are no good to others. I mention this often on my other site and it’s vital to our lives everyday. Warrior has integrity and wisdom listed as two disciplines also. Those will resonate with all of us in ways we choose on our life path.

You may think his Warrior way of Destrucity and self-belief was crazy but break it down smaller. Look for opportunities to apply it in any circumstance. Without beliefs, we truly cannot fully exist. My reason for writing it down then remains the same today. Thank you Warrior for your Destrucity as I believe in myself always! πŸ™πŸ»πŸ’–πŸ’ͺ🏻πŸ₯°πŸ”₯

The Genius in You βœŠπŸ»πŸ§ 

Would you believe you are a genius if one person said this? How about two or even three? Well, warriors you get three people saying you are a genius in this post. That word does sound intimidating for sure. We usually equate it with having superior intelligence or really great ideas. We ALL are geniuses, all of us. I’ll let you know why…

These three people telling that you are a genius happen to me, Warrior, and Mel Robbins. You obviously know me and some may know Warrior as the subject of my book Spirit and Belief but some may not know Mel.

Mel Robbins is an American T.V. host, author, and motivational speaker. She has been featured on CNN, given TED talks, and is a life coach to millions. She like Warrior and myself want you to spend time doing what you love because you are a genius.

It’s so easy for me or anyone else to write words and say them to others but what about to yourself? We talk the talk but can we walk the walk or practice what we preach? I believe in the greatness of myself. Warrior did as does Mel. Now, it’s your turn. Try this exercise. Look into a mirror and repeat that phrase.

“I believe in the greatness of myself.” *** Say it as many times as you need to warriors! The more you say it, the more you’ll believe it. I’ll do it too…

Mel suggests beginning your day as a genius with greatness before 7:30 A.M. Take 30 minutes or just 15 if you can’t do the whole half hour just for you. Truly spend time on you, not anyone else. I don’t mean a household chore, errand, stuff for your spouse, kids, pets, or any of that. Also, no life skills either like brushing your teeth or eating. Try to stay away from social media as well. Make it your time for YOU. Nothing robotically but mindfully.

Pray, meditate, write!, read, exercise, be outdoors in nature, take a bath, listen to music, be creative in any way you like. Stick to it every single day for at least 30 days. You will notice a difference with how your day gets started and guess what? That’s being a genius warriors.

Here’s a quote from Warrior: ( and that video above)

“Bold is genius. You came here to be a genius… Take that f***ing genius inside of you and show it off to the rest of the world!”

Yes, he used profanity A LOT! It is dramatic but we do need to share ourselves with others and make a difference in this life. Be passionate about what you love. He had also said he never met anybody that didn’t have greatness inside to be a genius. They just may never fully realize its full potential. Don’t be one of them. He goes on to say that the mind controls how that genius comes about. You have the power and control over your thoughts everyday through self-belief. Just make the time and use your own unique gifts, talents, and skills to make it happen.

Of course I knew that from Warrior. When I found Mel as part of Hay House’s World Summit this year, it struck me how similar their statements were. Hers without swearing! 😬

Here’s a quote from Goethe:

“Whatever you can do, or dream you can, begin it. Boldness has genius, power, and magic in it.”

*** His quote is very much the same as Warrior and Mel’s messages. Another idea Mel shares is to eliminate the “to-do” list. Do you really need to write down– laundry, walk the dog, or get groceries? Maybe you do but your brain will know over time. I have mentioned on my other blog making a working to-do list you’d actually accomplish without too many things in a day. Can you try this too? Don’t forget to remember yourself on that list! We take care of everyone and everything else (especially women) but can’t forget us in the process.

Whatever your list is like, make time for you as a genius. It sounds intense I know but that’s how we need to be in order to accomplish any goal. Get rid of that list altogether! I have and it truly does work. I’m not fixated on those to-dos and really know what needs to be done or what I’d like to do. Some of you extreme planners may be offended so just take baby steps one at a time each day.

Take it from me, Warrior, and Mel. That genius is already inside you just waiting for its day to come into greatness. Listen to us and yourself with that gut instinct you possess. You will never have this life back so own it now and tap into your inner genius. 15 or 30 minutes is all it takes. Use your greatness to be that genius you are meant to be.

P.S. Here’s a quote from Mel:

“Greatness is Hearing Your Truth And Speaking It, No Matter How Your Voice Shakes.”

β€œI Think I Can…” Part 2 πŸš‚

I have never written a part 2 for any post before but this one needed to be continued for sure.

*** There is a correction to be made about the story. “The Little Engine That Could” was originally written in 1930, not in 1947 which would make it 42 years before I was born and not 25. My info was previously wrong.., Having said that, let me share why this train gets a part 2.

While looking thru these classic books my aunt gave as wedding gifts years ago, I found “The Little Steam Engine.” I just decided to open up some personal books of mine and reread tales when lo and behold– there it was! This version is identical to the original and I laughed thinking of its connection and Warrior once again. The stories aren’t listed in the contents but they are categorized by virtues. This train is under perseverance which it did have by asking for help and never giving up. We should all do the same.

I will always keep that page folded over and my children’s book is near its larger companion in my bookshelf. Heartfelt laughter and memories again on one track of “I Think I Can.”

This takes us to the photo you see of my kids aged 4 and 2 then in 2008. We went to Idlewild Park in Pennsylvania and Storybook Forest was included. I highly recommend this park to anyone with young children as it has much to do with rides, a water park, and even Mr. Rogers Neighborhood Trolley. I was not looking thru old photos out of nostalgia at all but wanting to find one of my daughter since May is her birthday month.

That vacation brought up so many laughs and when I saw that pic— OMG again! I remember taking photos of the Storybook signs and characters but not specific memories. The classic tale in a collection and now that photo all within a few days. Can you say ultimate guidance? ☺️😬

The other fun part of this story is my son’s shirt. Many may know that 23 is Lebron James’s number and he played with our Cleveland Cavaliers during that 2008 NBA season. James was Warrior’s birth name and the Cavs won the 2016 NBA Finals against the Golden State Warriors. ( That story is in my book Spirit and Belief.) My boy just happened to be wearing that jersey in that photo and now– years later, a synchronicity. He did get a 2016 jersey and now has outgrow it. Mama will never give that away!

I tell ya warriors— the giddiness ensued from me for what seemed like hours after finding that photo and connecting it to the big book. This then of course led to my picture book and being yet another three count for the BIG title win! That Little Engine just keeps on going like the Energizer Bunny.., Hey– I had warrior batteries too (: Always keep connecting those dots or lining up your trains on the track since that’s how signs work. It can be anything remember. You may not have books, photos, jerseys, or any of my stuff but you will have your own.

Here’s another great moment. I also remembered Lebron coming last off the plane when the Cavs returned to Cleveland. He held the trophy and was wearing an Ultimate Warrior t-shirt! That image used to be my cover photo for this blog…. Many thought that was a “dig” at the warrior team but it was revealed he was a fan as a kid. I think it was both, LOL! Some didn’t even know who that guy was on his shirt. Needless to say, those shirts were selling big time. I did see a guy wearing one in my neighborhood that summer.

The number 6 is relevant here too since my son’s jersey is from 2008, Lebron left the Cavs for a few seasons and then returned in 2014– the year Warrior passed. That was 6 years later. We were on vacation when we heard that news in the Poconos– PA again… 6 years after we went to Idlewild. AND– get this!!! My husband and I honeymooned in 2002 at the Poconos. We wanted to go back someday with our future kids. So, first it was our honeymoon in 2002, Idlewild in 2008, and last the Poconos again in 2014. All 3 being 6 years apart in PA. I just realized those details later on when they weren’t originally part of this post!!

Here was my first idea that I put the “kabosh” on. It also involves the number 6 but in a different way. While watching the YouTube bio where the train book is featured, the beginning lists the date of when the Y2K14 games were released. That date was October 29, 2013. Pretty significant since Warrior always loved promoting them in his own way. Well, that date kept bugging me to connect and I finally did. Last Oct. 29, 2019 I had a serious situation that took me to the ER. It was more of a *spiritual* experience revealed to me later on not by any doctors so nothing really medically related at all. I thought about sharing the details as another blog post. Oh, and both of those Octobers were Tuesdays. Remember grace??

The day I was jotting down notes, my cat came running down the attic steps as the door slammed shut behind her. What? Nobody shut it. That never happens. My husband even asked why it closed so suddenly. Then, she jumped on my dresser near where I was standing and tried to knock the pen away from my hand! Um, could that have been a sign from Warrior? I believe so- always. My cat has done things before so cats have super intuition. Just to make sure, I asked Warrior to let me know with that story. Yes, it’s very personal unlike anything else I’ve ever told but I can be tactful. Well, a little later I got a loud buzzing in my ear which is a huge sign from him to me. I took that as a “No, don’t blog that!” I kinda knew already…

But, look at the dates. The same exact date only 6 years apart on Tuesdays again. Now, I truly know why that incident happened to me then as I was possibly thinking Halloween maybe? Spirits can be active at certain times just like during a full moon. I am FINE as it’s part of my spiritual journey but numbers and dates are important- always. Guess 6 is my “lucky” number for life. πŸ’–

*** Be that little engine on the track that works for you. It never gave up, neither did Warrior, neither am I, and neither should you.

P.S. ONE more number 6 connection– I promise! From Oct.- April- 6 months. Y2K14 games released and then Warrior’s passing. I also had “The Box” story in my book 6 months after he passed. April-Oct. reversed… πŸ’™
