Don’t Delay Your Destiny

I believe we all have a destiny. It’s not simply for a select few. There’s no one in this world like you and your energy and presence in this world is of immense importance.

I wanted to share this grand view with you today. You’re life should be an epic exciting adventure. If you haven’t found your passion for life or what makes you tick, take a few minutes today and assess your life. Determine your strengths and weaknesses and outline your course.

There’s truly no time to waste. Everyday is a gift. Realize this incredible truth. You were put here to do great things. I hope this message encourages you to reevaluate your life. Any and every level of hard earned success is a destiny. Seize yours!

Your Impact Can Be Huge

Just a reminder, you only get to be here once and your impact can be huge.

It doesn’t matter where you’re at right now in life. You don’t need to imitate others, it’s important to be yourself and create a life’s work that leaves legacy.

What you do here and how you effect the lives of others is of great importance. Never forget that truth! You only have to focus on one life- your own. Make sure the life you lead creates a positive change on many people.

Own Your Mind

There’s only one thing you own completely and it’s your mind. You control and direct your own thinking. Everything can be tasked from you but the use of your mind. It’s that powerful of a concept.

We give little thought to it’s importance because the mind is given to us free. It’s the most incredible tool and ally you possess.

Your mind is a vast resource you can train. Choose to fill it with the thoughts that serve you best. Feed it positive thoughts and let the negative thoughts subside for the day.

Your mind is not rental space so don’t give anyone a free pass. If you don’t believe in the value of your thoughts and mind just think about the billions spent in advertising trying to get a foothold on your precious commodity.

Pay attention to how you think. You can be your own friend or enemy. Start noticing your thoughts and learn to control the direction of your thoughts. Success is built within the mind.

Fill Up Your Mind

How is your day going? Is it a productive day where you’re accomplishing tasks and beginning a new project? Maybe it’s a brainstorming day. Perhaps you’re in the process of beginning a new venture or relaxing. Wherever you’re at, I encourage you to take a moment and fill up your mind.

What do I mean by fill up your mind? Your mind is an incredible machine. No matter how modern science tries to assess the mind, they simply can’t because it’s the most amazing invention that exists. Use this invention to your advantage. Fill up your mind with thoughts that advance you.

It’s easy to get lost in everything that’s going wrong. Don’t let that seep into the crevices of your mind. Fill your mind instead with positivity, prosperity, possibility and good thoughts. Replace any negative thought on your radar with something good. Repeat positive affirmations such as: I am healthy, capable and abundant.

If you spend a short amount of time today listening to the negative defeatist chatter bustling about in your mind, you’ll see the benefit of replacing those thoughts immediately. It’s absolutely free to fill up your mind with good thoughts and the benefits are good too. Get in the habit of noticing your thoughts and filling up your mind with positive life affirming thoughts.

The only thing worth filling up besides your gas tank is your mind. Neither run on empty.

A Journey in Bravery

At certain points in life we really have to dig in deep and become brave. It’s easy to be complacent and let fear immobilize us at times.

Being brave doesn’t require much but a little bit of change and change can feel very uncomfortable. Being brave isn’t about adapting a warrior attitude or winning battles. It’s simple a journey in which at some turning point you decide to be brave. You do something outside your comfort zone and it scares you but changes you.

If you want new results, adopt this method of bravery. Try something that will change your life in a new direction.

Remember, nothing is easy. Even sitting back and doing nothing has its price. The struggle is in the learning. The reward is the lesson. Be brave in your journey and learn from your bravery.

Examine the Reflection

Look in the mirror and you’ll find your biggest competitor. Examine the reflection and aim to fix the inside not the outside.

The only thing permanent is you. Inside of you, that’s where the magic truly happens. Outside of your reflection is simply a big comparison screen with everyone else.

There is peace, hope and possibilities inside yourself. There are answers and opportunities waiting in this world for you.

Never give up. There is real promise in dreaming about those things truly worth having.

Core values are essentially inside of you. They’re at your core. Look within and fix that beautiful reflection so it matches the outside and is visible for all to see. When you put the abundance, ability and hope within you on display for this world, you will attract that which you seek.

Be Willing to Walk Alone

It can be a long lonely walk to success. It can be a short one. No one gets there if they’re not willing to walk alone.

You’ve got to be willing to go after your dreams all alone. Sometimes when we share our hopes and dreams, we meet negativity from other people. They don’t need or want us to succeed. They’re comfortable in life and don’t see a need for change. You can’t expect the support of other people.

If your dream is worth it, you’ll find a way. With or without help, two key ingredients make up a victory. Longevity and belief will get you to the finish line.

No one gets overnight success. You’ve got to be in it for the long haul. Look past the rejections and failures but don’t stop until you achieve your goal. It might take a little while longer. It might take forever. Determine you’re staying with your goal.

Next up, have solid belief in yourself. Even if no one is there to support and encourage you, act as if it’s truly possible. You may be the only support on the way to your dream.

Keep going with whatever you start. Adopt a mindset that stays on your goals. No matter the circumstances, you’ll be able to smile when you count the small victories and really marvel at your accomplishments knowing you put in everything. Every goal starts and ends with your own thinking.

Don’t Let Doubt and Fear Keep You from Trying

Doubt and fear are the two enemies you can’t afford to rob you. Never let doubt or fear keep you from trying.

They say you have nothing to lose by trying and I believe that’s partly true. When you try, you lose only your own doubts. Even if you get nothing in return, you’ll have accomplished something unexpected. You’ll have surprised yourself by stepping out of unfamiliar territory and attempting something new.

Unfortunately, fear and doubt stop us from even starting. Overwhelming beliefs we’re not good enough, unskilled or unable can literally stop us in our tracks. Don’t let this be your story.

In order to find your true path, you must learn to search within yourself and erase doubt and fear. If the life you’re currently living isn’t what you truly envision for yourself, then you must build up your confidence.

Doubt and fear will weigh you down. Keep them in check. It’s not easy. Once you see how these feelings operate to keep you stagnant, you might want to feel the fear but try anyways. Erase the doubt and fear chatter in your mind for a minute and see what might be possible and go for it.

Stray from a Mass Manufactured Life

In order to achieve real lasting success you have a definitive choice in life. You can allow your life to be directed by popular role models but you may find your life is robbed. If you copy someone else’s life you are eventually living their life not yours in some manner. While role models are good, sometimes they’re only good at modeling a life- their own.

Instead, you must opt to find your own path. Seek it out and create a life of your own design. Think your way to a new life. Only you can do that and what excitement, wonder, greatness and passion it can bring to you and the whole world when you make this choice.

Real lasting success begins by building a life and straying from a mass manufactured life filled with following people, the latest trends and fads.

Let not your own life be robbed by living a carbon copy lifestyle. Be bold and brave and design a real life free from emulation that defines and changes the world. Take back your power from mass ideas and let your individualism shine and inspire others.

The Other IN Crowd

From social media to news, it seems everyone has gotten good at telling us how to live. In a few articles, I can be told what to eat, which fad to follow and what dress to wear. They’re determined to give us a carbon copy life. You can get a slice of that popular life if you spend your life following all the people you’re supposed to look up to.

I decided a long time ago fad people and idols were not for me. I have learned to steer clear of what the masses tell me to do. You’ve got to expand your own thinking for the life you wish to create to get past the one they’ve created for you. I think there’s another IN crowd. It’s one less talked about but full of pioneers, leaders and achievers. It’s the crowd I follow.

If you want to be part of an IN crowd, aim for these: INspirers, INnovators, INtellectuals, INvaluable minds, INteresting people and INtriguing lives. It’s something to think about.
