Define your goals, visualize them and display them proudly.
Don't be afraid to ask for what you want.
~Noni~ (My beloved grandmother)
This has helped me succeed in business 100 fold. If you dont ask for what you want you will never get it. Ask with confidence. It works in relationships too (but you gotta ask a little nicer).
Never do anything that you can not own up to later.
I'd heard through the grapevine that she'd mentioned to my future in-laws (at the time) some rather unflattering things I'd done (in retrospect no big deal, but when your 21 and engaged, everything is a big deal!). I was so mad at her for relaying this information, and she said "don't blame me for something YOU did. I just relayed the information, your the one who did it. Never do anything you'd be embarrassed or mad that someone said about you, when it's true. If you did it, own it good or bad." I've never forgot that lesson.
We all have things we dont want the world to know, but if they do, it's our responsibility to own them. But the bigger lesson that has always stayed with me is... before you do something stupid, think: "would I be OK if this was front page news in my home town (or Facebook!)". Enough said.
|Sooooo life changing!|
Surround your self with smarter, more successful people than you.
Use your head, but follow your heart.
~Client Paul~This came at a time when I needed to hear that BOTH are important in the same decision making process and enabled me to make the right one.
Just go for it! What are you afraid of?
~Client/friend Bill~This statement of encouragement, slash question is responsible for making the blog and my story public 18 months ago. Without that push and question I would have hid behind the armor of obscurity where it's was open to no one reading it... That was the push I needed to fall off my most terrifying cliff, which has changed my life. I plan on living the rest of my life with this motto.
Take responsibility for your life. Own your choices.
What a shocking revelation the first time this statement REALLLLLLY sinks in. The moment you realize that EVERYTHING good or bad is a result of a choice YOU made and need to be held accountable for. But how liberating in the end. It is the sentence that freed me.
Change your thoughts. That will change your world.
Read any post on my blog to know how impactful this statement has become in my life.
You can do this. It's just another "thing".
~Miss Sarah (one of my besties)~
So very true. No mater WHAT your facing in life, it's just another THING you need to get through. And you really can do it. This kept me from going to a very dark place at a very low point... and I call it up all the time remembering if I made it through that, I can make it through anything.
