This week I’m sharing my favorite quotes from the book, The PUNCH-LINE Approach, by my very own Coach and Mentor, Kim Guillory. I’m also sharing my own experience in doing this work, as each of the chapters is a step in the process to personal transformation. Enjoy!


So often when we decide to make a change in our life it’s because we believe we need to change our circumstances, the people around us, our job, our living situation.We make a decision and then go for it exclaiming “make it happen!” with a glimmer of hope in our eye, yet without taking the time to examine what’s going on in our heads and what emotions are actually fueling these actions.

The process of coming to Presence, Unveiling hidden false beliefs about yourself and the world, Navigating to rewrite your thought patterns, THEN coming to the part where you can Create on purpose is so huge when it comes to How your dreams and goals will actually manifest.

In the book, Kim lines out an amazing “C Step Solution” to help guide you:

Choose to do this practice.

Commit to follow through right now.

Cultivate by clearing space, answer questions, prepare to complete.

Continue by following through.

Coach support to help with accountability and guidance.

We keep showing up for the vision we created. For the future self we KNOW is a possibility. We keep fighting for that version of ourselves that is looking back at this moment right now.

We allow the actual How of all of it to be whatever it is without attachment and keep taking actions that support that vision.

We are always moving…are you moving in the direction of your dreams?

Or are you letting those old stories, self-doubt, low self-esteem, resentment and bitterness of how you thought it “should have been” get you off track?

Follow the first four steps and then keep taking action to get the results you desire!!

Next up, we’ll talk about the second half of the PUNCH-LINE which is all about your RESULTS!

This is the fun part! Now that you’ve done so much hard work re-wiring your brain in the first three steps, coming to Presence, Unveiling to understand, and Navigating with NEW thoughts, feelings, and actions, you’re ready to start CREATING!

This is all about the NEW vision for your future.

Take some time to come to presence and ask yourself some questions…

If I wasn’t afraid of being seen, having enough or being enough, what do I truly want?

If I had unlimited money, what would I do with my time?

If I felt safe, secure, whole, and loved, who do I want to be in this life?

Imagine yourself, where are you? Who are you with? What are you wearing? What are you doing? How do you FEEL?

The emotions you are feeling during this vision are what you’re really after.Good news! You can create those emotions right now. You already are in this moment of envisioning.

What thoughts do you have to think in order to feel those emotions?

I can do anything.

I am strong.

I am capable.

I am skilled.

I have everything I need in this moment.

I am always provided for.

The more you take the time to consciously create these emotions and align yourself with this future self the closer you get to that person. You start to become him or her NOW.

Why is this important? When you think these thoughts on purpose you create the kind of emotions that fuel the kind of actions that align with these future goals. This is the missing piece in what people talk about as the Law of Attraction. It’s not sitting around wishing and hoping and praying with no personal responsibility.

If we are co-creators in this Universe we do the work on our side with our mind, emotions, actions to see the results come to fruition. This is what manifestation actually is. Not the cute vision board you slap together without a second thought.

Take the time to create the vision, in meditation, writing, vision boards, song and dance, whatever it is to get your creative juices flowing and EXPRESS what’s inside!

“You were created with free will and the ability to create. If you don’t create your own vision, either someone else will, or your circumstances will direct the course of your life instead of you. You already know what would result in your happiness, fulfillment, and contentment. This inner knowing may be hidden beneath baggage, beliefs, stories, and misinterpretations from others or from thoughts that you made up along your journey.”

In my personal journey right now, I’m focusing on my physical health and wellness. I don’t just have a goal weight in mind and just tracking pounds lost, although those are components of this, I’m more focusing on FEELING good in my body now, ahead of losing the actual weight.

I’m losing mental and emotional weight that’s been manifesting as fat stores on my body. I’m releasing old stories and expressing my inner truths so that I’m not inclined to eat instead of feel my feelings.

I then think about how would I eat, drink, and move my body if I had never had extra weight in the first place? If I truly loved myself and cared about the kind of fuel I put inside this awesome machine of a body?

These thoughts create emotions of love, peace, empowerment, excitement which leads to eating and drinking in a healthy way.

The weight is consistently coming off each week because of this process. This is the first time I’ve truly applied all of these steps, getting the results I want, AND feel good throughout the process.

You are creating your life either way, consciously or unconsciously. Might as well be the one to steer the ship in the direction you want!

FEEL the future you want now! It’s so much fun! We talk about the HOW of all of in the next chapter, tomorrow. 🤩

After you start to practice pausing and getting into presence, then seeing what your thoughts are and questioning them, you can then see your habits and behaviors as simply actions taken from old programs. You start overwriting that old software with some updated versions.

“That’s the old me. What do I want to do now? What does the new me think, say, do?”

We practice the first three steps of Presence, Unveiling, and Navigating over and over throughout the day as we become more and more aware of our mind. In my current journey of weight loss and wellness, I’m PUNning all over the place!

Ah! The old me wanted to throwback with some carbs on the couch as soon as Cory went to bed so Mama can have some me time and escape all of life’s worries and watch some Netflix. I wanted to check out at the end of the day. Reward myself for all my hard work as a Mom.

I see so clearly now that it was all part of my victim mentality and my brain wanting to give me some comfort, to stay safe inside my fat body, hide in my cocoon.

Now, once I put Cory to bed, I tidy up, do whatever self-care activities I planned, and get to work on my brain and my business, which I also include as self-care. 😉

Over time the desire or urge to check out and escape on the couch has started to diminish…like it’s not even crossing my mind anymore. I genuinely would rather be sitting at the table typing this blog post then eating.

This is setting myself onto a new course. I’ve set the GPS to GO with my goals as the destination. With my personal thought work and Coach as my guide.

I check in with myself and get present.

I reach out for help when I veer off.

I repeat this cycle until who I am wishing to be becomes just who I am.

I start to embody HER now, ahead of time.

From this state, I can start to consciously CREATE the next version of myself with a new vision….which is the next chapter in The PUNCH-LINE Approach. I can’t wait to discuss this exciting step tomorrow. 🙂

Through my process of doing this work for the past few years, I’ve uncovered some real shitty thoughts about myself that I had been spinning on repeat in my head.

Thoughts like:
-I’m too big

-I’m not attractive

-I’m not smart enough

-I’m a loser for not completing that goal

-I’m too privileged to complain

-I’m not good with money

-I always quit too soon

-I don’t know how to do this (insert any hard thing in life)

-My childhood broke me

-I’m not enough for all the people who need me

-I’ll never accomplish my goals

-I want too much in this one life

-I’m never satisfied

-I never get what I want

-No one gets me

-I’m damaged goods


…and on and on it goes.


Because I’ve been coached so much, and because I’ve done a lot of work journaling, I can now see my current results are directly from those thoughts. Don’t get me wrong, I would also think good things, which also created my current results. 


What I discovered is that I’m totally responsible for how I think and feel. I may not have been responsible for the circumstances but I can take my power back now.

So uncovering what old programs, old belief systems, and thought models that are running my brain is super important work. Without it I would still be creating the same reality I had in 2016…which was a very dark and dismal existence for me. One that I never want to return to. 


Once we see that these lists of thoughts we’ve stacked up are truly just thoughts, they are not actual facts, then we can switch gears, redirect and think something differently.

We see that these thoughts were programmed into our brains by other people and institutions.

We can interrupt these thought patterns and question their truth. 


We can Navigate onto a new course! 


That’s the next chapter in the book and the next step in this process, continuing right here on the blog tomorrow.

I’ve noticed myself getting pretty triggered by some of Cory’s new behaviors, picky eating, high pitched screaming, throwing his body around in a fit…ya know, toddler stuff.

I‘ve noticed how lonely I feel in the evenings once Cory is asleep, now that Chris is out of town.

I’ve noticed how my brain tells me I should have something sweet as a reward for eating my dinner.

I’ve noticed how I want to “people-please” my mother-in-law when she says let’s go get ice cream after a walk at the park.

I’ve noticed how I immediately want relief from the stress from the whole day with some carbs on the couch.

I’m noticing…
I’m observing…
I’m practicing presence to become aware of all the little thoughts that sneak in. That’s the place where I can start to Unveil what’s underneath.

Thoughts I’ve believed in the past. Thoughts that I’m questioning now.

THEN, Navigate towards a new path, interrupting the old patterns.

Is it true that I “deserve” more food for eating food?

Is it true that since life is so stressful I should eat something sweet to relieve that stress?

Is it true that life is too stressful for me to handle by myself?

Is it absolutely true that eating something can make me feel less lonely?

This is the process of becoming aware and asking questions. The first step in the PUNCH-LINE…Presence.

I’ve gone straight to the actions, the How, in all my weight loss trials before. It’s never worked because I didn’t start with presence first. I didn’t know what was truly going on inside.

I’m willing to learn.
I’m willing to listen.
I’m willing to be surprised.
I’m willing to let it be easy.
