“Stop asking people who have never been where you are going for directions.” – NineFrogs
It’s so true isn’t it?
Our dreams know where we want to go.
We just have to put in the work, the action into making them happen.
Easier said then done, btw!
And I am living proof of it.
When I started my business back in 2012,
I knew it would be hard to make my business truly successful!
But I had NO idea it would be this hard!
I don’t just want to be successful
I want to be Internationally Successful!
And let me tell you, it’s hard enough doing the work to get there.
But then you have what I refer to as the ‘naysayers’.
Those people who continually tell you that you can’t do it.
That you are never going to be success.
You need to get a job, etc etc etc.
And those people usually wind up being the people closest to you. #yesitstrue
And then of course, there is life itself.
Kicking your ass from here to there!
Pretty much on a daily basis✔✔✔
It’s no wonder so many people quit their dreams.
They say most businesses don’t even make it past the five year mark.
I can see why…
And that is too bad.
Only, that’s not you, right?
Read that again☝☝☝
Because YOU know better.
YOU, knew it wasn’t going to be easy.
And you knew you would have to figure out whatever it is you have to do to make it work.
YOU knew you would need to focus on yourself,.
NEVER GIVE UP.
Here’s the thing.
Now is the time in your life when it is okay to be a little greedy with your time.
On a personal note.
When I started my business, my kids were teenagers.
As a single mother, I can say for sure.
I could never have started my business when they were little.
Not, doing the things that I do and the amount of time I need doing them.
After all, if you don’t do it now.
How are you ever going to get to where you want to be?
And where you want to be is in a place where you can help as many people as you can with your product/service.
YOU need to be sharing YOUR gift with the world around you.
REMEMBER: It’s never easy making a new way.
I heard something recently that really spoke to me,
‘Everything beautiful has dirt on it.’
Take the Lotus Flower.🌼🌼🌼 (👈👈👈most definitely not a lotus flower)
In order for it to bloom, it has to push through and live among mud, muck, insects and dirty conditions.
Think about that?
That is what you call #determination.👈👈👈
As a result of it’s determination.
Of pushing through all the mud and muck.
It blossoms into one of THE most beautiful flowers in the world!!!
And the very dirty water it lived in underwater.
Now, on the surface, washes the Lotus Flower clean.
Something very poetic about that!
My very first tattoo, July of 2018. I knew I wanted the Ohm symbol
and I asked my tattoo guy Maxx to add a beautiful flower,
and he picked the Lotus Flower, how magical was that…
See, we are all like Lotus Flowers.
Only some of us get stuck underwater and never blossom like we are supposed to.
Don’t be like that👈👈👈
Think when a baby is born…it comes out covered in blood and yuck, yet it’s as happy as can be.
Then in a blink of an eye, it takes it’s first breath.
Yells out a good scream, gets washed up, and then is perched onto it’s mother’s chest, and just like that, a beautiful baby joins the world…
Just don’t stop.
Keep reaching for your dreams.
I know sometimes it feels like nothing is happening.
You just have to keep pushing.
And do whatever it takes to get you where you want to be.
Don’t let anyone keep you from following what’s in your heart.
YOU are the only person who was given this dreams.
And YOU were given it for a purpose.
ONLY YOU can make it come to fruition.
So remember, Hold Onto Your Dreams!🙏🙏🙏
Remember, the sky is the limit…
oh wait, NO, there are no limits.👈👈👈
And you my friend, possess unlimited potential.👈👈👈
(yeah, that’s the thing no one tells you!)
As crazy as that sounds, that’s exactly how it feels!
Me, believing in YOU👈👈👈
How to make today a better day👈👈👈
