Your Future

It is essential that we focus on strengthening our minds as our journey continues.

Embrace challenge and limit praise. Choose the vision over the tangible, the easy, the common.

Our greatest power is our ability to choose our pathway and take the best steps to a beautiful future.

Your Commitment, Your Standards

Don’t lose touch with the tenacious spirit that set you on the course to your best. Get invigorated and embrace the steps that led you out of the place you once occupied.

If tenacity and persistence got you out of your darkest times. Think of the gains your newly invigorated, well-resourced, persistence will help you bring into existence for you and your loved ones.

You’re awesome. Keep up the good work!

Getting Started

They won’t believe until you make it happen.

You’ll have to believe in your strategy, your plan, your goal enough to develop and refine it into reality.

If no one else wants to take the journey with you, the best journeys begin with a fearless leap.

Trust your vision. The journey to your greatest accomplishments has already begun.

Solving Problems

Be careful when you’re the one who puts out fires on a daily basis.

Sometimes, you’ll find the that the problems are never ending, and the source that’s generating the flames is the real problem that needs to be solved.

Recharging

When relentlessly seeking your goals, remember to temper your quest with the beauty of rest to strengthen your creativity and inspiration.

Many of us have surpassed, driven. We’ve outgrown determination, and we are hitting our stride

Reach sustainability by setting aside time for something beautiful on your journey. Love your steps and keep moving forward.

Getting Readers for Your Beautiful Work

You can push your pen across the paper, carefully drafting 40,000 words, or punch every letter into your keyboard, basking in the glow of your computer screen.

You can dust your work off, tweak it, flip-it, get your best friend’s blessing, then rewrite, edit, rework, edit, package it,  shine it, make it glossy, then finally ship it or post it to your site of choice.

When you’re done and manage to breathe, you’ll start the next task. Yelling from the rooftops, read, read, read. Read my wonderful, all-new, awesome, very awesome, very-very awesome, work!

And to your dismay, you’ll need to learn a nice new headlock to get people to focus or pay attention to your masterpiece.

I learned, while teaching high school, that none of my students were impressed by the number of degrees I had, the work I had created, or the number of skills they’d master while learning with me.

They loved the jokes, the stories I told, and they were most impressed by the tools I gave them to discover themselves on their journey to greatness. That was the value. That made it all worth it.

Once you get rid of the smoke and mystery from yourself, and focus on sharing your generous gifts, which is the knowledge and wisdom you’ve cultivated from your truly honest, hard-earned, relentless work, everything begins to fall into place.

Learners will appear, questions will be plenty, interest will be generated, tools to further the journey for all will be shared and re-shared for everyone’s benefit.

Remember to set a page goal and stick to it. Meet three new people who can help you make magic in your daily life. Discover something new that helps you save time and complete more focused work. Have fun and tell a friend about your journey.

Keep working and have an amazing week.

 

Fear and Ambition

Fear is usually the greatest factor holding you back from your ultimate goal. Sometimes we go so far as to include our fears into our goal setting. Which means our ambitions only reach as far as what we fear.

This is no place for your bold penmanship. This is no dream for those writing new best-sellers, creating new models for the workplace, or artists forging new dreams with their honest, deepest work.

Motivate then actualize your journey by going for your biggest most outlandish concept. Envision more than you fear, and dream bigger and bolder than you ever have before.
