Commitment

Life’s better when you bet on yourself. Your soul, your work, and your art needs your confidence and unwavering commitment to excellence.

I used to have a lot of trouble spelling the word commitment. I couldn’t figure out the exact number of M’s and T’s. One day, when I had enough, I took out a sheet of paper and wrote the word one hundred times.  It took 5 minutes. I never had trouble spelling commitment again.

Sometimes, the choices we make about our problems: never identifying the issue, never focusing long enough to correct the issue, and never taking specific, measurable action to end the cycle returns us to same place over and over again.

In my case, spelling was a simple fix. Other obstacles in life are much more challenging as many factors can affect your situation.

Stress can be a major deterrent to your best efforts, food choices can affect your energy levels, social and familial relationships can be a drag on personal growth.

The issues continue, learning gaps create roadblocks to personal growth, exercise and leisure time also factor into the mixed bag of obstacles that may prevent you from creating your best life.

No matter the problems or obstacles, our power is choice.

Choose to see the bigger vision.  Know you have the ultimate power to solve your problems.

Everything changes when you clear the clutter, welcome the obstacles, and learn to surmount each challenge issue by issue.

Rinse and repeat your process each day for the best results. The day is yours!

 

Problem Solving

Successful people dig-in and solve their own problems. Whether it’s increasing your revenue stream or completing your literary masterpiece the time, effort, and energy you put in to complete your work is your most precious resource.

Don’t waste your life (time x effort x energy) on fads or in a race to become an average and mundane brand that brands average distractions to keep people average.  Offer more value, more connections, more creativity than anyone else. Be the artist who creates their dreams and solves the problems that change the world.

Believe that you can do it and stay focused until the task is done. The alternative, pecking and scrolling the hours away into your cell phone isn’t as awesome getting out there and completing the challenge.

Seeking the Magic Bullet

After endlessly searching for the next magic bullet to make your business better or refurbish your mental focus, you’ll probably find that you’ve had what you needed all along.

To the searchers, I tell you to keep searching. For those that lack confidence, I tell you to keep searching. For those that believe happiness and joy are products and tools some else has, keep searching.

All the things that will drive you to be your best are right where they have always been, inside you. The caveat is learning and using knowledge to inform your on your quest, but the attitude, the persistence, and the vision for greatness is right where it has always been, inside you.

Choices

Don’t take the easy choice.

Make the big decision that changes your life forever.

Your Vision

Don’t walk into the New Year dreading the challenges you’ll face as you continue your journey. Look forward to new opportunities and celebrate that you are capable and more than ready to take on the challenge.

The alternative, dreading the experience, should be lost in past and removed from your outlook as you move forward.

Your ultimate goals always lie ahead. Continue moving forward and building your vision.

A Dream Diverted

When you fill your day with tasks and obligations that divert you from your purpose, even if the tasks are positive and helpful to others, anger and resentment are built within your heart because you aren’t living up to or fulfilling your true purpose.

Find a way to do what you love everyday. Find a way for your dreams, your vision, your purpose to flourish everyday.

This will deepen the love within you. You will grow in love. And in turn, you can share your gifts of love, generosity, kindness and gratitude, without hurting yourself in the exchange.

Let’s Go!

Another day, another opportunity to put together a championship effort to make your dreams and your vision a reality.

Stay focused. Stick to the work. Achieve the impossible!

A Small Note

You have the opportunity to do something amazing everyday. The fans and the accolades are the scarce, fickle variable. Your drive and dedication to your vision are not.

You can run 10 Kilometers today. The distance is there. Your running shoes are ready. You can get to it right now.

You can hit send on your big project. The online event, the mixer, and release party entourage may not be ready, but your project has survived the quality-control test, and it’s ready to go. You can send it right now.

Allowing external limiters to shape your mindset with fear is a dream-killer. Open yourself to the possibilities of going when you’re ready, working on the terms of your own resolve, and building in the medium your personal terms as the measuring stick of your success.

We usually work for love and freedom. Get going and work on you terms today.  Have an awesome day. You are amazing.

Ultimate Vision

It’s the time and attention that you put into your work that creates value. Work from your deepest centers of creativity and imagination to manifest your ultimate vision.

The work and the the journey to solve the best problems are yours. Learn to value this gift.

The alternative, the mundane, the easy, the simple are always readily available for those who chose to give-up. This option is not for you. Dig in and keep going.

Step by Step

Breathe. Go slow when you have to, fast when you can. No matter what, get moving, go now
