Hi there. I'm Jill Allen and this is find your fierce, the show designed for women to discover your fierce, unlock and unstoppable mindset. Build unbreakable courage and completely transform how you show up every single day. Each week I will bring ideas, methods and strategies that will inspire you to step into your greatness and live life on purpose. Let's be fit, fierce and unstoppable.

(00:35): Hey there. Welcome to find your fierce. Love it. That you are here with us today. We are continuing with the what to be striving for series. This is part three, the final part of the series. And if you're just hopping on the shirt, click back on the first few parts to catch up. We are going to pick up where we left off from last week, because like I had mentioned before, this is something that I had to really grab a hold of. And I know you get it women in strive mode. I was on that path yet. I was driving for the wrong things and I have to say, I'm thankful that it was part of my journey and experience that because I would not know what I know today. Always a learning piece to all of our experiences. So it all worked out for the greater good. It's all good. I get to share this with you and what I had discovered, and I have found that oftentimes we don't even realize that we are seeking approval from everyone, but the one who ultimately matters and what it is that we are striving for.

(01:33): But here we are, we are waking up, especially over these last few weeks. And when this shift was happening, right, when we make this shift, the stress and the anxiety, it starts to go away. And I began focusing on the present moment and what God expected of me versus the world I was seeking for his approval. And it made a big difference in my heart. And it made a big difference within my family. It made an incredible difference in my entire life. The stressed out the anxious, the short tempered knee was the result of striving for the wrong things and the things that were not aligned with me and who I was created to be. And when we begin to strive for those things that are aligned with the Lord's will, it didn't even feel like the normal strive mode, right? We are living and working and living in a place of rest in a place of peace.

(02:28): And so, like I said before, if you've not listened in on part one and two of the series, be sure to go back and download that so you can add it to these next five things. I'm going to share with you as to what it is that we should be striving for. So here it is part three of three wrapping up this amazing Stripe talk. Okay. So number 11, go for the pure joy strive for joy. How many of us are walking around miserable? Right? How many of you, you know, that we're not smiling? How many people do you know that the negativity and the drama surround them? Like they have this black cloud, right? Maybe that's you, the chaos all around and that we're walking around in a funk. And when we become aware of the fact that maybe we're a grump or that something is off, that's the first step we need to be on this mission to experience some joy in our life, to chase the joy joys from the heart guys.

(03:22): And when our heart is filled up with love and with things that matter. And that mean the most to you, that is what comes out and pours out of us. Okay. You radiate, we shine. We're happy. What brings you joy dinner? Is it dinner time conversations walks playing with your dog, FaceTiming with family, go do more of those things, carve that time out and chase it down. Number 12, strive to make memories. You know, how back in part one of this talk, you know, and here we are, we were looking back on our life. In those final moments, we have a responsibility to take ownership of our days, how we spend them, what memories we create, what kind of memories are we creating? And I guess we will always have a memory, right? We're always, I guess we're always creating them. But my question is to you, what kind will they be?

(04:15): Do you want the memories, the kind that will be talked about on the side porch, rocking chair, you know, once filled with laughter or memories of the stressed out you, what kind of memories, traditions, or things that you can do right now, starting today in the season, whatever season that you're in, that you can make to begin to make tomorrow's memories. Today's reality, strive to make memories, the good ones. Number 13, strive to just breathe. Sometimes you got to just join the circus guys, given to the mess. Sometimes let the crazy win and just breathe. Take a deep breath, strive for that big inhale. And then exhale. I know it's in our nature to just like, keep going, keep going, push through. But what if you didn't do that for today and decide to just take it all in? And here's the thing you're not lazy when you do this.

(05:05): Okay. No guilt, no shame. Just rest, just breathe. What will happen if you did that? You know, and sometimes when we are still and calm, listening to our breath, that is when we are right where we need to be the right thing to be doing at that right time. God is speaking to us loud and clear when we just breathe. Number 14, to be a part of an inner circle, strive to search for that inner circle and your community, true friendship means so much. And when you feel like no one else in the world understands what you're going through, all the stress and the overwhelm, having that inner circle that gets it with you. Are you trying to do it alone, guys, we need to be understood. We need to be heard. Friendship allows that and be sure that it's the honest friendship, the ones where you won't gossip or complain or compare the friendship where you can just be you.

(06:06): And they can be them. Look for those friendships that are so super real, where you both are like totally imperfect. Do you have those friendships? Who is your ideal friend? Is it someone that's perfect or is it someone that's willing that they don't have it all together? Do willing to admit that strive to be open and honest and find that village and then care for that village, invite others in, right. Be that includer. Be the one who includes and show up 15. This is the final one. Strive to answer the call. Remember you are chosen. You've been called. So we need to answer that call. And the fact that God designed each of us with a specific purpose in mind, whatever that may be to contribute to that greater good of the world, maybe it's, you know, to be a mother, a teacher, a leader, you know, there's so many different, wonderful things, you know, but everyone has a calling and we should be wanting to discover that over the course of our life.

(07:07): And I know that there's that little flame inside of you waiting to be set ablaze. What do you think God is calling you to do? If God has placed something on your heart, believe me, he has given you everything you need to fulfill it. And I know we spend so much time choosing jobs or deleting know careers, but what if we choose a life? Instead, I was watching Emily and Paris. It's a new series on Netflix and a guy on there made such a profound statement that it hit home with me. He said that over here in Paris, we work to live and that she as Americans live to work. Oh, think about that guys. If we live our, our call and choose to live a beautiful life with the number of days that we have been given, I want you to just imagine what steps are you needing to take?

(08:03): What steps are you needing to take to work, to, to live? It's a completely different ball game. Answer the call. I'm going to leave you with that thought, ladies, we just wrapped up this crazy good series. You will always have access to these episodes, grab a journal and start striving for what will truly change your life. I'm excited for you to apply all this good stuff. And to recap here, go for the joy, make memories. Remember to just breathe, find your true inner circle and answer the call that God has placed in your life. I love it.
