You got a dream… You gotta protect it. People can’t do somethin’ themselves, they wanna tell you you can’t do it. If you want somethin’, go get it. Period.

Ain’t No Stopping Us Now, We’re on the Move….


Goals. Have Faith. Have Courage. Be Strong. Never Give Up. What will seem like in the Blink of an eye, you will achieve. So keep going.

Goals: When Things Converge…

What are you afraid of? Go ahead, do it now….even when you’re afraid. You never know…

Convergence is the merging of distinct technologies, industries, or devices into a unified whole


Illiana awoke with a start. She is going to do it! Moxied, she grabbed the phone and courageously spoke with her former part-time boss, John. For months she has been thinking about her internship but was paranoid that she would be turned down.

This time luck was on her side! A past associate and colleague recently connected with John for an opportunity but he didn’t have the time to assist. But he promised he would think about it. Now here was his chance… Illiana had all the time in the world to dedicate to this project for a full year of internship!

Amazing! Totally supernatural! Savor it! When faith works, everything converge.

What are you afraid of? Go ahead, do it now….even when you’re afraid. You never know… it may converge with another person’s dream.

Ever had ‘converging’ experience? Do share.

Cheers!

Your Descript Tethered Life …

A sprint. A jog. A run. A walk. I sat on a bench in the park stretching. I watched health and fitness enthusiasts do what they love. I stretched more, then reflected on life. Where are we now? The Tethered years fly by …up close slowly; looking back, it’s a flash. I then began scrolling, and there popped the question from a social media forum:

Describe Your Life in ONE Word

Curious, I scrolled through the list of responses. Some were positive, some nonchalant, while others were filled with a bask of the negatives. Here I share a few of the comments.

Surprising | Destined | Stuck | Perfect | Open Book | Confused | Determined | Focused | Blessed | Challenging | Change | Sucks | Fortunate | Tears | Observant | Destined | Surprising |  Progressive | Persistence |Purposeful | Growth | Making | Incredible | Awesome | Evolutionary | Adventurous | Meaningful | Beautiful

Does any of the above responses resonate with your life right now? Can you add any that’s missing? Feel free to share.

Cheers!

What’s Your Passion?

Passion: A strong and barely controllable Emotion

Life is beautiful!  But even more when you know your passion. A confused Alex asked a group of coaches how he could discover what he was passionate about. Intrigued, coaches jumped at the question to Infuse their perspectives, and encouraged him to:

  • Get in touch with your desire
  • What do you really want to do?
  • What would you do if you had a year off?
  • Go back to your childhood and think what you were doing in your free time, games you liked to play
  • What is it like for you to not know
  • What is something that someone did for you that you enjoyed and had fun doing, receiving, and participating in
  • Know your life purpose
  • The fact that you have a life purpose means that you have a blank canvas and can create whatever you want
  • It’s in your life journey. It looks different for everyone. Explore working with a coach. See who clicks with you
  • Do an assessment
  • Sit still with a paper in front of you. Sometimes you need to analyse what’s working and what’s not working in your life
  • What’s your life goal? Has it changed?

It’s always great to take a step back at different times in life to reflect. Ponder the questions above and see where it takes you. Enjoy the ride.

17 Ways To Inspire Creativity…

It’s a story of humility, bravery, admiration, fear, teamwork, leadership, and most of all calm in the midst of tragic…

 Who would have thought a flock of birds would create such havoc? Yes indeed. Though extremely rare as one in a billion, it happens. The movie Sully shared the real life story of the pilot whose quick decision saved passengers on an aircraft he was flying. He landed in the Hudson River, and Miraculously saved over 150 lives. It’s a story of humility, bravery, admiration, fear, teamwork, leadership, and most of all calm in the midst of tragic circumstances. Doesn’t this story inspire you?

Who Inspires You?

Brian Tracy asked his audience “Who inspires you?” Many responded giving answers such as God, family including mom, dad, spouse, as well as leaders like Brian Tracy, Oprah, John Maxwell, mentor, teacher, coach, political leaders, and more. But surprisingly, one response stood out when a male said that he was not inspired by anyone or anything. Bewildered? Should this be reason for alarm? Do human beings need to be inspired? What happens if we are not inspired? Even more, can we survive without inspiration?

Inspiration is the process of being mentally stimulated to do or feel something, especially something creative.

Inspiration is described as being mentally stimulated to do something. If we are not inspired, chances are we will become stuck, de-motivated, lethargic, and life may become meaningless. It’s like there’s no Reprieve. So here are a number of things to do to keep those motivation levels high, as well as arouse your critical thinking skills.

17 Ways to Become Inspired

  1. Listen to Music
  2. Watch animals or children play outdoors
  3. Enjoy nature. Go to the beach. Watch the waves
  4. Travel someplace you have never been
  5. Tune-in to motivational speakers such as those on the increasingly popular Ted Talk
  6. Listen or Read about others who have overcome adversity
  7. Try something new that you have always wanted to do but were afraid
  8. Create a vision board
  9. Consider the challenges you’re facing. Identify solutions
  10. Ask people what they are grateful for, and reflect personally
  11. Join an organization of people making a difference in the world
  12. Read an autobiography
  13. Disconnect and write in a journal
  14. Get a hobby. Express yourself creatively e.g. sculpting, or playing an instrument
  15. Let go of something
  16. Take pictures outdoors. Breathe.
  17. Reflect on what you have learned/accomplished and how it has helped you make a positive difference in the life of others

There you have it. Adopt one, two, three, or more and become inspired!

Stepping Out Into The New: Advice for New Entrepreneurs…

feel the fear but do it anyway! Damon Johns, Business Executive of Shark Tank asked the question: “if you had a piece of advice for someone just starting out, what would it be?” People all over boldly shared…


Derrick has been frustrated in his job as manager of operations. He has been at it for years but his job has lost its zeal. He could apply for the Branch Manager’s position but he wasn’t sure he had what it takes to manage the responsibilities. Besides, he has been thinking about following his passion for design and wants to launch out into his own business. But the sense of Qualm he feels has put him in a state of inertia. He has been afraid that he might fail.

Many are the dreams of people like Derrick. The fear is real but like I’ve always said…feel the fear but do it anyway!  Damon Johns, Business Executive of Shark Tank asked the question: “if you had a piece of advice for someone just starting out, what would it be?” People all over boldly shared their views. Because Collaboration is key, I’ve compiled a list extracted from their direct responses. Choose one, two or a few, and apply as you like.

Advice for New Entrepreneurs

  • Cashflow is king. Make sure you’ve got cash in the bank to ensure you’re covered for not pulling a wage in the early days
  • Work on yourself to know what you’re doing very well. Be persistent and consistent.
  • Document every step of your journey, no matter how trivial you think it may be. The data you think is not important today, may prove to be invaluable tomorrow.
  • Money talks.
  • All progress not saved will be lost.
  • Always find reasons and new motivations to keep going at it.
  • If you hang around 9 people that are ‘broke’, chances are…you’re going to be number 10.
  • Its rough… I mean really rough. Stick to it and take the bumps in stride.
  • Do something you love so you never work a day in your life.
  • Doing what you love and are great at-is the easy part. Mind the business with equal effort or you’re doomed. Marketing, networking etc. and don’t ever forget … never play it safe. Take risks, and go after it.
  • Work hard. Focus and be unreasonable. This is what creates discipline and growth.
  • Don’t get so busy that you forget to say your prayers.
  • Value yourself, believe in you when no one else will. Right before you quit, try one more time with a different plan of action. Always be true to yourself and others. Make time for fun, not all work.
  • It’s not going to be easy but know that with paitence and persistence it will happen. Be around the people going in the same direction that you want to go.
  • Never give up. Fight for your dreams.
  • Just be yourself. Don’t try to do what everyone else is doing just because everyone esle is doing it. The business model that works for others might not work for you. Being an entrpreneur is your chance to do it just the way you want to!
  • To work at it every waking hour.
  • Say the phrase…finish it.
  • Believe in yourself and take risks.
  • Best advice I learned from running my company is it’s ok to be a bitch sometimes. Clients and customers will treat you with respect sometimes. Other times they run all over you taking advantage of your kindness. Balance is key. Ya gotta know when to put your foot down and look people in the eye with “that look” and speak your true mind instead of putting on the “professional front” through their bullshit.
  • Stay laser focused on the goal even if your strategy isn’t perfect yet. Make progress daily.
  • Keep going.
  • To start.
  • Find someone that has something you want. Do what they do and you will get what they got.
  • Start …like the end doesn’t matter.
  • A winner never quits, and a quitter never wins.

So that’s the list. Different opinions but great diversity. Are there a few that resonates with you? Anything missing that you could add? Take a look again and if you’re still busy dreaming…start doing today!

Cheers!
