Motivation for Perspective: Go Getter Monday

….maybe in order to move forward, you first have to slow down.

Too many times I thought doing multiple things meant productivity and progression, and it is those things, but was it propelling me forward or just in a cycle of forever seeking…

This past five months taught me a lot. That success is best shared with someone you support and who supports you.

Hiding who you are to appease others will only hinder your growth and awesomeness.

Being afraid to communicate means you aren’t communicating with the right people; self reflect.

That love is real. It’s so beautifully real. Even the moments in between the love experience; break-ups, make-ups, heartbreak, dramatic gestures, memories.
And so it should be appreciated in its truest form, because when love is stretched, it can take on other characteristics from shame and hurt and anger…it’s still love…it’s just a bit jaded.
So treat love with much much much care.

And I may think I don’t have time, but I do. I create the time for my moments and my success.
I just have to do it.

I hope you take some time to self reflect on you and are better able to view your biggest picture; grasp a new angle/point of view in which to gauge your success, in whatever aspect you visualize.

Create the time to slow down…you won’t regret it.

Motivation for Perspective: Go Getter Monday

I recently had a talk with a colleague who is also a good friend, and I shared my frustrations about wanting to step out as a full time entrepreneur, but naught having a tangible product or vision.

So many ideas are running through my mind, and I know the passion is there to promote the brand, but my work ethic has taken a spiral for in that area.

Laziness leads to a total lack of commitment.

And in listening to and realizing the truth and my part in allowing things to go so far left, I understood that I changed.

I wasn’t focused on the biggest picture, and I lost the lesson of:
Complete One Idea at a Time
1) Make two columns
     A. What am I actually doing
     B. What I actually want to do
2)Prioritize your columns
    What are you most passionate about
3) Decide how your lists overlap
     A. What things go hand in hand
        ¤ create a flow chart of how one completed passion fuels the next
4)Plan your effort
    A. What’s your new routine for success
        ¤ i.e. 9am -meditate
        ¤       9:30am-work on sketches
What are you willing to do to bring your passion to life?

5) Make it work
    You are the only determining factor in how successful you are and will be.

Energy can naught be denied, it attracts what it puts out.

I felt my power source to be weak, but that is because my mindset was weakening, I wasn’t focused nor active and I wasn’t seeking the right energy. It reflected in my creation of….well, nothing.

Moral of the story is, don’t let lazy take hold of you. It’s okay to chill and relax, but watch that!

Don’t allow lazy to become your routine.

Communicate what you value. Give hope and hardwork a chance to change the situation.

When you understand the value, you begin to believe again.

Communication, what’s it worth to you?

You worried about the wrong things.
-Mama Prim

My mom would tell my sistar and I this when we allowed our focus to be distracted by temporal situations.
The importance of staying true to your goal can prove difficult when life throws curveballs your way.
However, surrounding yourself with people who help to guide you through difficult times, will surely elevate your energy to where it should be focused; on you.
Life will happen.
But so will your goals and dreams.
You just can’t worry about the wrong things.
