Holly Cooley

Your Independent Consultant


I've been a Thrive Life consultant for over 10 years and I absolutely love my job!  I get to share the best food on the planet and I get to teach people how they can create healthy quick dinners for their family so they have more time to spend around the dinner table.

THRIVE is in a category all by itself.  Delicious, nutritiuous food that happens to have a really long shelf life.  Vine ripened, no GMO food that you can have access to in a snap--for those little emergencies that don't feel so little when you're in them--like no time to cook, sick kiddo's, unexpected company, you name it! Emergencies happen every day.

This is great tasting, nutrient dense food packaged in double lined cans designed to keep the good stuff in and the bad stuff out. The 25 year shelf life comes in handy too!

Are you curious? So were we and we'd be happy to answer questions. We'd also love to share how you can earn FREE groceries.  Ask us how!  We are practically a walking coupon and we're here to help. 

Being prepared for emergecies brings peace of mind.--whether they happen or even if they don't! So create your own home store and get yourself some peace of mind!

Thank you for the opportunity to assist you in your journey towards that peace of mind ...Peace of mind that comes with being self reliant!

Scary Hard Things

February 4, 2014

Scary Hard Things 

by Holly Cooley


I won a trip recently and got to go on an amazing trip to Mexico thanks to Thrive Life and a whole lot of hard work.  My husband and I had such a great time and got to participate in some really great activities.  One of them was a zip-line tour of the canopy in the mountains of Mexico.  Little did I know what I would face.


I’m not really afraid of heights, so I was looking forward to trying this for the first time and seeing some amazing views.  What I didn’t realize was that there would be rapelling (read “sitting off the edge of the platform you’re standing on and relying on a rope in your hands to keep you from plummeting to your death”).  I may not be afraid of heights, but I am very afraid of falling to my death!!


And there would be something called “Superman” (read ‘ be horizontally propelled forward like a bullet at 80 mph for almost a mile with a go-pro camera in your face”).


I mentally overcame my fears of the rapelling portion of the trip and was very proud of myself.  I even have the smiling photo to prove it!


I kept telling myself that I was going to make myself do the superman portion.  How hard could that be, right?  I mean, this company would not be in business if people expired on their tours.  The logical part of my brain was still audible until we finished our upward hike and reached the cliff side and the platform.  When I saw the drop and the zipline trailing off into thin air I was so scared that I could hardly breathe (no exaggeration)!  That Fight or Flight instinct immediately kicked in and my mind kept telling me that I had already done enough brave things on this trip.  I could feel very proud of myself for already conquering quite a few fears.  I contemplated hiking down and being very okay with that.


But a tiny voice in my mind kept wondering if I would miss something amazing if I gave up here.


It’s the same tiny voice that wondered if I might actually be able to win the contest for this trip in the first place.  It’s the voice that made me dig deep, set some goals and then work my butt off.  And I DID IT!


I decided in that moment to trust the guides, trust the lines, and defy gravity.  I decided that I would force myself to keep my eyes open.  And I would have missed a fantastic view, as well as an amazing sense of accomplishment if I hadn’t!  Yes, I may have had tears streaming out of my eyes and I definitely screamed like a girl, but--I DID IT!!!  I DID IT!!!


I need to remember that it is always worth the hard work to get to somewhere amazing.


So, this is my new saying, and it’s on a sticky note so I don’t forget it:


"The SATISFACTION of a difficult goal accomplished,

FAR outlasts the relief of quitting."—ME


Where could I go?

What could I do?

What is possible if I can just get out of my own way and DO the scary, hard things that are in front of me TODAY?


What about YOU?  What’s holding you back?


Kick it to the curb and FLY!
