“F” it All!

Have you ever known way too much and knowing too much got in the way of moving forward?

Sometimes knowing all the risks can make you fearful and ultimately hold you hostage from getting “it” done.

When you know too much it can hold you back from moving forward, therefore you make no decisions at all. Knowing too much can rob you of fresh perspective, a new outlook, and sensible thinking.

If you knew everything about planes you might not fly. If I knew everything about food, it would probably be only a few things I would eat. If I knew the outcome of every situation I might box myself in.

so with that said, “F” IT ALL, that’s right I said it! For-get-it-all!

Forget it all.

Forget what you know.

Move on.

Move forward.

Start fresh.

Go back and work on the business plan you researched so much you talked yourself out of it. Give that relationship a second chance; it’s not too late. How many times will we talk ourselves out of our future, by going with what we think we know? Punch fear in the face and “F” it all!

While You Can

Have fun while you can…..Sleep while you can…..Enjoy life while you can….Live life while you can….Travel while you can….Party while you can!!

If you haven’t heard these statements before, wait for it….you will! When I was in college, adults continuously told me “You better enjoy life while you can, because when you graduate, you will be a member of the real world.

This scared the heck out of me! When I starting working my first job out of college at a staffing agency, I remember sitting at my desk day after day depressed because I felt as if life was over for me. In college I was constantly surrounded by friends, being in a constantly moving environment, and here my life ended in a cubicle. It wasn’t until I realized that life hadn’t in fact stopped, but it was just beginning! That job at the staffing agency wasn’t the job I was meant to have forever, and the faster I adapted that mindset the happier I became in my present state. As adults we become so focused on our present that we can forget that our future is brighter.

Life doesn’t start when you graduate from high school/college or when you begin your first real job, life begins when you start walking in your purpose and embracing every step along the way. Life doesn’t stop when you get married or have kids, it’s just the beginning. No matter which stage you are in life your 20s, 30s, 40s, 50s and above, married or single, it’s never too late to work on your purpose, follow your dreams, and have fun! While you can is while you still have breath in your body, and if you are reading this you are alive! So live life and make history, while you can!

Don’t get distracted!

At the end December and the beginning of January everyone is buzzing about their plans to be better in 2012 and around the 3rd week of January many people start to lose momentum and get distracted from the goals they set in the beginning of the year. How do I know? Because I am guilty of it! The pressure is on to do all of these things that I wrote down that I would accomplish this year and guess what! It’s not easy! So here is our wake up call!

Don’t get distracted from the goals you set in the beginning of this month, don’t let your dreams and your list fizzle out by February,  wake them up and let’s get to work.I have realized that in order to be successful this year, you have to make up in your mind that you are going to be successful on purpose and intentionally set out to finish. It is easy to start, but it is hard to finish something. So this week sit down and look at your list again or if you don’t keep a list, start one and think about all that you want to accomplish this year and break those goals down into smaller more attainable goals that are more realistic. This way you won’t feel overwhelmed and end up quitting them before you even get started.

Don’t be distracted by anything or anyone, get focused on the ultimate goal and start checking those items off of your list. Being successful is a choice, it just doesn’t happen on accident or by chance. You have already made up in your mind that you want it, now let’s go get it!!!!!!!
