Happy New Year, friends!

Can we ask a personal question... what is stopping you from making this year the year that you step more into your authentic self?

We all know that the New Year brings the revitalizing opportunity to set new goals and pursue new life-changing habits. But how do you make sure those work and last?

You need to listen to our guest this episode. He's a profound example of how to use the power of pursuing positive change to better oneself.

Bobby Sud shares his wildly inspiring journey going plant-based, reversing diabetes, and through that gaining a passionate purpose in life. He speaks from a place of compassion and clarity, having experienced first hand what it takes to reckon with choices that have led you to hard places, and then to make the changes that lead to a better version of yourself.

Bobby confides his personal story along with a wealth of heart-felt and practical advice that will revolutionize your pursuit of goals and habits.

He discusses with us the power of being loved as you are while also encouraged to grow into a better version of yourself. He encourages listeners that anyone can commit to small steps and how big change can come from that. He shares how to build an environment that will support your habits and provide for you the self-control you need to stick to your plan.

We also explore how shame and self-criticism can be transformed into an opportunity to encourage our own - and other’s - authentic selves to step out. Bobby’s inspiration continues as he dives into the heart of the matter and explains the role motivation plays. He shares what the key was to hitting his goals.

Bobby’s authentic story of coming face to face with himself in the lows, but refusing to stay there reveals how pursuing meaningful connection and purpose revolutionized his life, his health, and his career, and how all of that is accessible to you with just the willingness to step out and change a habit.

And keep listening to the end for the the encouraging words Bobby offers to those in a hard place, struggling to find purpose or connection or value in themselves - whether that's you or someone who needs to hear it from you!

With love and green dreams for this New Year,  

♡ Toni & Michelle
