How to build mental strength.

And this is why I am passionate about fitness. It builds a mental strength like no other.

When you are tired you must keep pushing, even if you go slower just that keep going instead of quitting means winning.


There are loads of reasons why I could recommend fitness and weight lifting. One of them is the mental toughness that you develop while working out. 

Focus, strength, resilience, endurance, determination and I could go on. 

The other day I learnt something, I was working out and got a text message with “bad” news. This is the scenario, I am sweating like crazy, my headphones’ battery had died, so the inner coach had to be full on nor to get lost in thought. 

When you set a goal, let’s say you tell to yourself, I am doing 40 crunches in the roman chair, ok? You just do them, you train your mind to go until the number 40 and the thing is and here is the lesson.

I told myself, I am doing 20 and then at 12 something inside me saying, nah, you can do 12 only and then my body stops. 

Without the music the workout is different, to help me focus I bring my attention to the muscles and how they are working. Realising that the only way I could break a pattern was by actually doing what I said I was going to do hit me. 

This thought came to me: When you are tired keep pushing, even if you go slower just that keep going instead of quitting it’s winning.


It was the last round, the circuit is hardcore, it’s a core blast without rest of a 20 second plank, 20 mountain climbers with side twist for each leg, and then the killer, 20 tapping shoulder plank with two plank jumping jacks and to finish a plank to pike jump, the last one is 3 exercises in 1.

This one is to sweat it out like it’s raining, the heart rates goes high, you have to keep focus on the form and the core tight, it takes practice and it’s about the endurance more than the speed. 

The last few days when I felt the burn I rested for a couple of seconds and continued and here is the thing, those seconds seem nothing serious, right? WRONG! The moment I do that I am creating a habit, the habit of quitting or giving up as soon as I feel real pain and the avoidance of pain is comfort zone, it can spread to anything you do in life. 

As soon as I realised this the clarity and focus was incredible, it was maybe survival mode, activation of all my senses, the realisation that that text message had made me realise my strength and how much the gym is helping my growth and business. 

In the end, life is a big business and we are the CEOs! It’s called res-pon-si-bi-li-ty and control over our life experience. 


Set a goal, set the intention of doing it no matter what, even if you have to do it slower, keep going, keep pushing, control the form, believe you can do it because you have done it before, and when you finish the set you will be proud of yourself because you gave your all and did the best you could. 

We live in a world that is moved by instant gratification, long term visions require endurance and it all starts in the mind. Train your mind to be 100%, all in, to persist even when the going gets though because you know that if your mind is right everything will follow. 

Remember, if your mind can see it and think about it is because you can make it, have it and experience it!

Follow your heart!

Follow your heart, yes, but when to know what’s really your heart and not another game of the mind? 


Following your heart is tuning in to what makes you feel most alive, no matter what that is, if you could be doing that without being paid, for hours, without thinking when it’s going to end, but wishing that you could be doing that forever, then that’s your purpose. And it doesn’t have to make sense for anyone else but you. 

Your purpose can, may and will change. It’s called growth and evolution!

For me following my heart has taken me to travel around the world, trying to understand why I had so much hunger inside that nothing seemed to fulfill, my mind wandering, and my soul guiding a path that I couldn’t see clear but took the first steps and here I am. In London, writing a blog, growing as a person and becoming the woman I dreamed of. 


Following my heart has taken me to experience life and open my mind to new dimensions, being courageous enough to walk alone and learning to think by myself. 

Following my heart was messy in the beginning, I didn’t know what would happen but my strong desire to conquer is guiding my steps and I am grateful because the plan is bigger than what we can imagine. 

Why you should follow your heart? 

Because you aren’t born to settle, to limit yourself to the walls your mind is trapped, because there are limitless experiences out there for you to enjoy and it’s all in your hands. 

Because you aren’t born to be mediocre, to fit in, to be normal. 



Because you have life in your lungs and you must fight for that life like it’s the end of the world. 

And it really doesn’t matter, the main point is challenging yourself to make something happen. Little did I know that from the moment that the idea of the festival came to me it would become a reality. 

That’s how it works, you set a goal and find ways to make it a reality. 

It could be doing a course, changing your habits, starting a fitness journey, grabbing a backpack and exploring Asia, telling someone that you like them, quitting a full time job to pursue a passion, starting that side hustle that could bring you more money than you could have ever imagined, moving to a new country…endless possibilities!

My tips: 

  • Write down a list of things you would like to do and start right now to work towards making them come true.
  • Be willing to get out of your confort zone and learn new things. 
  • Erase the “I know this already”, “been there, done that” from your head because every experience is unique.
  • Let this sink in you: fear is an illusion and this game is for you to win and grow into your best self!

How to define your “perfection”.


There is no box, you are confined only by the walls you set for yourself and I am more and more aware of all the conditioning and limitations that only because I am a woman I am carrying with me and breaking through those walls is my mission. 

You know what’s perfect for me? 

Facing challenges and growing stronger from them, embracing change and allowing myself to make mistakes and learn from them. 

If you want to be perfect you will be your whole life chasing something that’s not real but in that chasing you will grow and become an amazing being capable of leaving a legacy for the world. 

Progress not perfection they say. For me it’s the hunger of perfection what keeps me going.


For some the concept of perfection will be stressful, for others it will be like fuel, burning the wheels and pushing them to new levels of life.  

Be bold enough to find your voice and follow that, whatever it takes, it’s your life in the end. And remember that it’s all a matter of perception, if you stop wishing to please others and instead focus on pleasing your self, your reality will start to change. 

Commit to that and your life story will be a whole different one. 


We might never reach it but we will give our all at least and make it. 


  • challenge yourself to something new every now and then, I recommend every week is a good start .
  • face a fear and see that actually it was all in your head.
  • be honest with yourself and recognise when you set a goal and failed to complete it, try again and know that you can do whatever you set mind to.
  • accept your imperfections and realise that some traits can be improved and others make you YOU.
  • take a deep breath and continue moving forward!

How to stop being a people pleaser.

We are taught to be nice, kind, compassionate, caring, nurturing and all those glossy and sugarcoated traditions.

We aren’t meant to be noisy, loud or stand out too much, no good man will like you if you are overdoing, if you are over sexy, if you go for what you want. You are bossy and you intimidate men! 

We have been told that powerful women intimidate men our whole life. WAKE UP! We are not here to please anybody but us and that’s the biggest service we can give to the world!


Fuck being nice for a day! Do whatever you want! Risk making others angry and don’t care! SAY NO when you mean it!

Saying no and having an attitude is different. Saying no means you are being true to yourself and you are choosing yourself before anybody else. 

Some call it selfish, I call it self love! 


Learning to say no when it’s hard is when you really win. Saying no means you will piss off people but if you keep on pleasing people you won’t get far. 

This goes to every time we feel something in our stomach telling us not to go one way and we still go that way.

All those times when we know we have let someone else decide our moves we are giving our power away. And later we have the courage to blame others!

Where we are in life is product of the choices we made in the past and if we keep looking back and thinking that we could have done something different instead of using every experience as a steeping stone for our future we are already dead.

I have heard them all, I used to have many of this excuses in me. WHAT IF?










Being nice means you will put others before you choose yourself and yes, some of you might be married, with kids, divorced, lost, unemployed…name it…well, there is always a way out…if you are willing to put in the work, know yourself and make the right moves now.

Being nice with others and then faking being nice with ourselves when what we need is a kick in the ass…that’s lame!


Do you want to get somewhere? Go out there and make it! 

Do you want to live a life worth watching when you are about to leave this planet? Go out there and go for it! 


Why are we nice? Because we want others to love us, to approve us, to say: wow you are so nice! So great! So amazing! 

We look for constant approval instead of playing the game, life is playing it on us.

We allow others to decide when and where, how and what.

Without questioning.

Without taking the step back to question ourselves, our actions, our reality, our situation.

Then we go to therapy, we blame our parents, our environment, we blame our bad choices, our mistakes, if in the past I hadn’t done that I wouldn’t be where I am right now!


Every journey is different, every single life is different, every person is different, every story has to be different and you are where you are right now, life is pushing your buttons the way it is right now, for you, YES YOU! To act accordingly.


There are few steps in gaining control over your life and every story is different, this may resonate with some and it may hit others so hard that they will hate it, so be it.

Gaining control over your life is understanding that this game was made for us to become stronger and wiser, standing up challenge after challenge and building a mind muscle to lead our lives with the joy and freedom we deserve. 

Being nice means you are part of the pack, those who are really nice don’t follow the crowd, they do them, they do their thing, they are nice when they want and when they don’t feel like it they are just them, true and authentic, if it hurts someone’s ego they don’t bother, they don’t fight battles that aren’t worth their time, they build their empires and walk their path.

Being nice means you will sacrifice your life for others and there is no bigger disservice than being so nice that you find yourself at 80 years old thinking what the fuck did I do, where did all that time go, where is everybody now? All those big favours that you did? Gone! Under water.

You are nice with yourself, in the mirror, owning your personality, being hard, becoming stronger, and then projecting that energy into the world, that’s how you inspire!



This is life, this isn’t a test or a Disney movie. This is the harsh reality and we better step up and own it or remain the same and blame our environment for not being who we dream to be.


Someone asks you a favour and you are not in the mood? Say no, with a smile, no excuses and no explanations, don’t justify your no. Just say NO and that’s a complete sentence.

How to elevate your vibration.

Observe when you are about to fall down the trap of blaming others of your luck, when you are about to talk bad about a colleague, when you are about to share a negative thing that happened, when you are giving more than one thought to a situation that annoyed you, laugh it of, don’t fight it, simply move your attention towards something else, think Holy guacamoly! Again? and laugh!


Treat these actions like you would treat your inner kid, with love but when you are teaching something you must be firm and determined, you know what’s best for you, give it to yourself.

Bitching can be against ourselves as well, for example right now I am writing these posts and I am thinking who the fuck am I to be sharing these thoughts with you?

Something inside me holds me back, you know what? Fear of failing! But if I don’t try I have already failed by default. 

Stop complaining about things and realise that things aren’t the way you would like because you are learning, every journey has it’s own pace and as long as you keep aiming for greatness all is good.

If you wake up every morning with the determination to rise above your limitations you will eventually get it done, if the desire in your heart to overcome your struggle is stronger than your laziness then you will make things happen and find ways to make them happen. 

Today is a day to focus in all the good in your life, see everything not as a stuck point but as a stepping stone. 


Everything is in your life for you to outgrow your yesterday’s self. It’s for you to outplay and outwork every version of yourself who doesn’t believe dreams do come true. 


The problem is that we want to be part of the pack and being part of the pack we settle, we try to fit in so desperately that we loose our spark, we allow ourselves to be dragged to parties we don’t feel like going, we jump into relationships that feel off from the beginning because we are scared of being left out, we are so scared of being alone and lonely that we don’t take time to know ourselves and we accept wherever life throws at us, we sit there, waiting, waiting, waiting, for things to fall into place when the reality is, things will only fall into place when we jump and take risks. 


Today the risk is being called grumpy, crazy, bad friend, and loads of other things. People will “worry”, they will try to call you back to the pack, you simply stay in your lane and see how your thoughts drift, how you put still the blame on those around you, how you are giving your power away.

Letting go of people you have been hanging around for a while isn’t easy, you are used to the behaviours you share, you feel guilty and a bad person for putting yourself first, they will say you are selfish, that you are thinking you are someone, that those heights where you are going are unknown for them, that you have changed and you are a different person now!

That was the whole point, baby! Change or die! 


Let me repeat something that I said in the previous posts: everything we get in the outside world is a reflection of what’s going on in the inside world. 

Why do some people get what they want easy and others seem to continuously struggle through life?

Because of their beliefs. The experiences we get are repeating patterns until we see the pattern and take a different action.

What have I learned? Alex Vermeer quotes How to Win Friends and Influence People by Dale Carnegie:

“Criticism is very unlikely to be effective, because it will just put people on the defensive. As Carnegie says,

“Criticism is futile because it puts a person on the defensive and usually makes him strive to justify himself. Criticism is dangerous, because it wounds a person’s precious pride, hurts his sense of importance, and arouses resentment.”

Carnegie then presents several examples of criticism going bad, and follows it up with saying,

“Any fool can criticize, condemn and complain—and most fools do.
But it takes great character and self-control to be understanding and forgiving.”

He ends the chapter with the following paragraph,

“Instead of condemning people, let’s try to understand them. Let’s try to figure out why they do what they do. That’s a lot more profitable and intriguing that criticism; and it breeds sympathy, tolerance and kindness.”

We waste too much time complaining of how things have gone wrong in the past, how things go wrong now and how everything is against us all day every day. 

That negativity is poison!

Complaints are infused with the role of the victim who has no choice but to continue the same chain of facts that keeps them trapped in a reality that they don’t like.

Well, let me tell you that, YOU DO HAVE A CHOICE!

How to THINK your own thoughts.

Step out of your comfort zone and think by yourself, test your fears and choose what makes you feel more excited

You are already more aware of your thoughts and paying more attention to the world around you.

Re-gaining your power is more about understanding that the game is you, you are the player, everything outside you is only guiding you towards that next level.


Today the challenge is taking time for yourself, allowing yourself to be the first thought in your mind and the first person you think about when making a decision.

No fucks given! For real! 


You have a dream, you are working towards it, you know what you want and YOU KNOW what you need to do to breakthrough.

Step I:

Start transforming your reality by changing something from your routine, something that scares you: cancel a meeting, take time for you to enjoy a longer lunch or gym session, leave earlier from work, go out and have dinner with someone or on your own. You don’t owe anyone an explanation, this game is yours and yours to win and play. 

What is scaring you the most? 

If you continue behaving like a slave you will continue in that mindset and nothing will change, you know that to grow you must push through the fears that come floating up: your boss might get annoyed, you will miss an opportunity of growth in your career, you will miss what?

Nothing will happen, this small act of rebellion is a clear statement to the Universe that you are committed to growing your mental strength, that you are capable of taking decisions on your own, you have a plan and that plan is following your passions wherever they take you.

I have learned that in life you give and you receive, you take and you deliver, but most of the times you realise that those in power are selfish and you have to learn to own your space, to stand up for yourself. 

It doesn’t matter if you are going to continue working in that environment or if you are looking for ways to open a new business, launch a company or whatever.

This mindset will help you gain the confidence you need to ask for what’s yours. That pay rise, to set your boundaries, to say no when you mean it, to say yes to yourself more often, you are allowing your desires to flow, you are allowing your personality to shine, by realising that actually nothing happens and it’s all in your head. If you truly believe that you deserved that extra time for you to do whatever the f*** you wanted, absolutely nothing outside you will stop you from that. 


I did the test myself, first I wanted to be super radical and not go to work during a whole day but then out of fear I reduced the amount of hours, I was even more productive than a full shift day, I knew I was in control of my results, I was trading my time for money, yes, but I was training my mind to have the confidence to break the rules and walk outside of the office building almost 3 hours before my shift finished.

I have a huge adaptability to change, overtime I have developed the skill of knowing what’s the next best move for my development.

But it wasn’t always this way, once I had so much fear of calling to work and saying that I was sick and wouldn’t come again that literally my inner kid was terrified imagining their reaction, they would get mad at me, I wouldn’t be able to walk into that store ever again. I was literally sitting in a corner telling my sister how scared I was and she obviously was surprised, the fear was rooted deep inside and by stepping up and letting go of a work that was killing me I gained confidence.

Embracing the unknown is what we do really every day, but we are numbed by all this routines and apparent obligations. 

Step II: 

Today is the day you decide for yourself, you take again the control of your day and ASK YOURSELF:



The signs will be in and out, you will know what to do but you are still scared.

It’s ok.

Take a small step.

How you want your life to look like?

Is what you are doing today bringing you anywhere closer to that goal?

What could you do to get one step closer? 

Decide what will be your next action to take and start writing down a plan.

It can be as crazy as you want!


Vision boards are an amazing tool for this, you see the clear vision of how you want your life to look like and one day if you look back you will be amazed of the power of your mind.

You can have it all!

Find books, courses, seminars, groups, anything that will help you develop the skills necessary to reach the next level of your life. 

Step III:

Getting out of your comfort zone means getting out of your head, trying new things, new ways of behaving, testing yourself and the world around you. 

Use whatever you have in hand, forget about what others may think and focus in doing everything for you.

You want to learn dance? Go, sign up! Be ridiculous, observe your thoughts, see how hard you are on yourself, how you judge yourself when you don’t know one move, see how you think others might be doing it better, see how instead of being listening to the teacher you are listening to that voice in your head saying that you are not good enough.

Well, you are learning!

Engrave this in your head: You are learning as you go. Be patient, let those thoughts be, let them float, laugh at them, laugh at yourself for being so hard and let it go. 

Laugh. Literally. Smile and laugh. You will see the energy releasing your body. And take a deep breath. Take a deep breath and walk like you mean it.

Another thing that you MUST COMPREHEND IS that everyone is human.

Step IV: 

Humanise people, humanise men, humanise women, humanise your idols, humanise the bloggers, humanise every single person, everyone around you, humanise your boss, humanise your colleagues, nobody’s perfect, everyone has insecurities, fears, is going through hardships and is battling some kind of inner struggle. 

Humanising others around you will kill the fear of interaction and will leave you more relaxed when walking the world. 

By observing people we can read them and see through the facades of confidence, we can see the emotions, we can sense what’s going on in their heads. And that makes them human.

Recap of the day: 

  • try something new;
  • break your routine and take time for yourself ;
  • face the fear of making someone else angry or annoyed; 
  • embrace that consequences and own them;
  • give yourself the time you give to others so easily;
  • question if what you are doing is taking you closer to where you want to go? and
  • write down a plan or create a vision board for the life of your dreams!

Today must have been intense, take a long shower, rest, breath and listen to your favourite music.

Observe how all those terrible situations didn’t happen and that whatever happened you where more in control because you didn’t care, you felt free of your mind restrains.

If you need to do repeat this day over again because you were too scared to break your rules, it’s ok but don’t allow it more than 3 days because then you will reinforce the belief that your life is out of your control.


Take these exercises as an experiment for your own personal growth, to take control over the world around you, to raise to your top, to climb that mountain in front of your eyes, inside your head. 

To win this game you have to question absolutely everything, don’t take my words for truth, test them, question them and question your ways, your thoughts, your fears, question why you react and why you act the way you do. 

For the next exercise be prepared to play your game, flirt if you like, own your body, enjoy being alive, the next day will start by worshipping your image in the mirror.


You have to gain control over your mind and that it’s also gaining control over the reflection in the mirror.

How your words create your reality.

Are we still alive? 


Let’s keep working then!

Beliefs are simply thoughts that if repeated enough times they become imprinted in our subconscious and we allow them to guide our actions; beliefs shape our reality and when we take control of them our world starts to shift. 


How you speak about yourself, the energy you put in your words, what type of words do you use, are you energised and motivated or are you catastrophic and fearful, are you judgemental and victimised or are you listening more than speaking?

Observe how you answer to people, why do you reply the way you do and observe what image you portrait of yourself. 

Are you feeling entitled to all the abundance or do you feel deep inside that things won’t end up going the way you want in the end so why bother trying? 

That’s a belief, that’s a belief that you have reinforced during your life thinking that when things didn’t go your way is because you made mistakes and made the wrong moves. That’s a strong belief that must be changed from today if you want to make it happen as big as you talk.

There are no mistakes and there is no wrong path because ABSOLUTELY everything that happened to you and EVERY SINGLE CHOICE YOU MADE was placed there to make you the person you are today! 

Life has many layers, we want to be successful at work, find our perfect partner, live the life of our dreams, have perfect health, a joyful social life, we want to launch a business that leaves a legacy, be the perfect leader, travel the world, free from debt, have billions in the bank and find our purpose.

Ok, one by one, my advice?

Start with you! 



Decide what you want, if you want a serious relationship state it out loud, if you want to reach your fitness goals make a commitment, if you want to move to another country start researching, if you want to launch and idea, start now. If you think that those amazing things that other people seem to be living aren’t for you REMEMBER THAT THAT’S ONLY A BELIEF! 

To make anything happen you have to believe you deserve it and you will be able to do that through building confidence.

How do you build confidence? 

By taking action! DAILY! 

Annalise all those things that you think are missing from your life: money, relationships, fun, travels, health, fulfillment?

Why are you doing this to yourself and making your soul live in such despair?

True confidence comes when we take control and responsibility for our life, when we forgive ourselves for not knowing before what we know now and when we reframe those past actions by comprehending that the journey is taking us towards our ascension no matter what, there are no right or wrong paths and that’s why you are changing your life just by reading these posts. 


When starting this journey you will feel the desire to share it with others, you will think: why nobody else is doing it, why this hasn’t been taught in schools? Why people are not doing something else with their lives but gossiping and complaining?


Every journey is different and all those external inputs are for you to react, you shouldn’t bother, they are guiding your internal light, when you feel disgust or discomfort towards something, remove yourself from the scene, walk away, if you stay is because you are still wired with the mediocrity of those unenlightened.

Your service here is to become your best self not to tell others how they should be living their life. 

WHO ARE YOU TO JUDGE ANYWAY? When you are basically learning to walk right now? 

Keep this to yourself, work on yourself for yourself, daily, and allow the Universe to align you with those in your same vibration.

Learn through meditation how to discern, what’s right for you and what’s not. Choose your wellbeing no matter what.
