So, the time has come for you to leave the nest to become an eagle in your own right.  You have seen the mountain and you are ready for the climb. Opportunity has knocked and you’re putting on your robe to answer the door.  You’re convinced.  You’re ready to take the leap of faith and start your business.

First of all, CONGRATULATIONS!  You are about to join the long list of pioneers and trailblazers who wrestled the reigns of commerce to grant them success beyond their wildest dreams.  If you’re anything like me, you will read on because unlike the majority of thought out businesses out there, I was brought into the market place by demand for my talent instead of a planned entrance into a market.  You would want to consider a few things to make sure that when you start your business you’re riding a healthy steed into the sunset, instead of riding a stubborn mule down a slippery slope.

Execute Your Fears Away

We are creatures of habit.  Nothing shocks us back to life like something new.  Buy a new car, you will drive with pride and slowly upgrade your wardrobe, too.  Find new love and you will come alive.  Everything is more vibrant when you journey through the life and heart of your new lover. How would you ever get to experience true love if you were too afraid to open your heart?  The truth is that this one experience might be the oasis in the midst of ten other failed attempts at finding love, but you would never get what you want it you never take a step towards it.  You will always miss 100% of the shots you do not take.

You have to be intentional about overcoming defeat and failures.  They don’t just lay down.  They don’t roll over and play dead.  They are formidable barriers that you must conquer, if you are to experience the best of each event in your life.  You may want to start a business.  You’re fired up.  Your family?  Not so much.  This is because they know that this would actually be the Spectacular Grand Opening Event Of Business #6!  You’ve failed 5 times before.  You look up and you could see a dark cloud, loop the replay reel of each failed attempt, looming over your head.

You’ve got to have something stronger to Read more ›

Get Back On!

article-0-0EE24E4100000578-560_468x325

Everyone on the face of the Earth has to deal with the ups and downs of life.  We are whipped up-side down-ways by the craziness and drama of our chaotic days and lonely nights.  We ride the roller coaster with our eyes clamped shut while our hands firmly gripping the cold metal safety bar, which seems to be (oddly enough) the most comforting part of the ride.  After such a terrifying experience, I wouldn’t blame the person who says, “NEVER AGAIN!”  Once bitten twice shy sums up this sentiment pretty well.  Life doesn’t seem to be so Read more ›

Living On Purpose: No Time To Waste

life3d

“The purpose of life is a life of purpose.”

Some people go through life being lived instead of truly living.  Others look back at years of mistakes and wasted time asking, “What have I been doing with my life?”  When you know where you are going, you make less mistakes in life.

You owe it to yourself, your future, and everyone else, to find out what on Earth you were placed here to do.   Power and Passion can only be unlocked when you dial into your life purpose.

Pursue the life you want to live.

Find Your Life Purpose.

You Can Do It!

Think of the hardest thing you ever wanted to do.  Does it seem like it is an impossible feat?  Well, then it is.  If it seems like a tangible goal, be it retiring your parents, getting that dream job, starting your own business or traveling the world on peace missions, you will accomplish it. 

What is the secret?  Whatever you can conceive and achieve in your mind, you can achieve in reality.  However, you don’t stand a chance of achieving a positive result if you can’t even accept victory in your mind.   It’s not a secret, to be frank.  It’s just the way we are wired. We cannot change it.  We must accept it and benefit from it.
