One Step at the time.

Happy first week of the year, loves!
Are you as pumped and excited as I am!? I know this is the time for new resolutions and all, and I have a question: How are you going about this?

Well, I read somewhere that “The road ahead waits for your journey”. That is very true when you think about it. It’s not going anywhere, meaning all you have to do is take the first step!

Everything we were and are today we carry with us; it’s our luggage. Everything we will be lies within our next journey… It lies on the road ahead. It lies on the path we create. It lies within us!
As Lao zu would say, “There’s no road. The traveler creates his own path”

My point here is that no matter how you go about your resolutions, actions
toward seeing them to fruition are key! And remember, as long as you’re moving in that direction – no matter how slowly, you are winning!

I would tell myself over and over, “The time to hit the road is now!”
Let’s rejoice in the knowledge that there are no shortcut to any place worth going; and that any destination that is worth the long journey is a finished race, a victory in itself!

In my book, 2017 is synonymous to discipline, progress, and accomplishments! Make it a great year; and see you on the greener side! 😉



Success Begins With The Decision To Try

Success-begins-with-the-decision-to-try-hypnozglamHappy Monday friends.
I was lucky enough to read on this little writing of my dear hubby. Yes, those who know him well would know or notice that he loves writing… something we both have in common.  I was even luckier when he gave me his approval to share it with you. This actually how we try to live our life… Anyway, take a quick look, you might actually like this.

” I read somewhere that “Success begins with the decision to try.”  I would say that success begins with the decision to try, after been told countless times that ‘you cannot do it!’; after hearing and knowing that everything that could go wrong will, in fact, go wrong!
Success begins with the decision to try, after you come to full realization that you’re going to make a fool of yourself… but still paying close attention to that small still voice coming way down from the depths of your soul telling you “just go for it. What do you have to lose? They’re already thinking you’re a fool anyway! Just go for it and you might actually amaze yourself!”

My wife Edwige always says “When you follow the call of your soul, magic happens! Absolute magic!”


What all winners and successful people won’t tell you or will seldom admit is this: It is normal and okay to be scared. I would say being scared just means you’re about to do something really brave! Just think about all those big names who took that leap of faith, started up from scratch, met countless abysmal failures, pushed through and today are allowing us to use the electrical current, flight through the sky, see our friends live from miles apart, click on a small ‘window’ to discover the world… or just start our cars remotely from our smart phones!
It is actually that simple, “success begins with the decision to try.” God will amaze you when you call upon Him to lift you up…
Nourish that dream! Fuel up that passion! Just give it a try! Amazing things await… Go get ‘em, you mighty winner! ~ Fredo K. Teko-Folly #AspireToInspire



I can only agree with the points and reasoning in this post. How many times haven’t we aborted the implementation of some great idea just because we got scared or just because we heard the “you can’t do it”? 
I will go in no further details, but know that my greatest gifts to you my followers, my readers, the Hypnoz Glam fans, or anyone who stumbles upon this is the deep aspiration to inspire you to pursue your dream… yes especially when that scares the living hell out of you!!! You owe it to yourself to be happy!  Go after that dream!!!

Count your blessings!

Hello friends,

Thanksgiving is in a few days… What are you thankful for?

I’ve probably stated this here before; maybe last Thanksgiving maybe not; I feel like it is something I will never get tired of saying. I feel like I really need to say it more often, so much that it sinks deep in the core of my being and yours. Gratitude is something we should express every single day. it’s a sentiment we should never cease to have. It should be our way of living. Life itself is to be grateful for. Some people do not have it anymore. Some others are fighting for theirs.

Many of the things that we take for granted are the simplest, smallest things. The food on the table, the family that loves us, the friends that got our back, the income we bring home, the things we enjoy doing that we can actually do, the simple fact that we are alive and well. I can go on and on. I can get very personal and tell you all the blessings that I’m counting, but I want to make this about you; yes if you’re reading this, I want you to know that there are so many blessings that are left to be counted, but we are so busy chasing the ones we think we don’t have that we actually can’t see the ones that have been bestowed upon us. Count your blessings! Today is a gift, tomorrow is not promised, so let’s celebrate life every single day. Let’s be thankful! Let’s count our blessings! Let us say our gratitude every single day because gratitude should be a way of living! 


” Gratitude unlocks the fullness

of life. It turns what we have into

enough, and more. It turns denial into

acceptance, chaos to order, confusion to

clarity. It can turn a meal into a feast,

a house into a home, a stranger

into a friend.” 

-Melody Beattie

The story of this Indian acid attack survivor might inspire someone today! When life gives you lemon, make lemonade out of it, they said. I know this might sound lame or cliché, but truth be told, I have no better way to put it! View Post

So, this past weekend has been relatively rich in experience and overloaded with excitement for me. I’ve attended New York Fashion Week for the first time and, obviously, I’ve given you a glimpse of the shows I was invited to in my previous post. You can read all about it here… if you haven’t before. 😉 If you do follow me on Instagram or Facebook, you’ve probably seen more pics and videos there that were captured in honor of the event.
