Goals inspire! They ignite our passion to dream, to prepare, to plan while ultimately enjoying the journey. Sure some dreams are safe! Some risky…even explosive!
TIME Magazine shared the story of a young lady who trespassed on a private property to take a selfie on California’s highest bridge. She slipped and fell 60 feet below! Luckily for her, she only suffered several broken bones, an Outlier that in her Tenacious efforts knocked her unconscious but she lived to Heal and tell the tale!
I attended a meeting recently and the dream of one young lady was to visit Arizona to take a selfie 🤳 on a cliff. Love the dream! But…are such dreams worth your life should you slip?
Goals inspire! They ignite our passion to dream, to prepare, to plan while ultimately enjoying the journey. Sure some dreams are safe! Some risky…even explosive! Some make our mouths water! With all that, let’s use wisdom to survive, to thrive to reap the benefits!
Let’s face it…bad things happen. People disappoint. Businesses fail. But what is worse is if we never try at all.
I love nature and always choose to live near a lake, pond or stream. What comes with that is nature’s creatures like squirrels, ducks, and my worst fear –lizards! My fear of them makes me search to find them before they sneak upon me. My imagination runs wild as I think of their creepy, crawley features that makes me real scared. Mind you, it has not happened but my fear, like Cusps, makes it real to me…yikes!
Aren’t we all afraid of something? We sure are. But what is fear? Why are we afraid?
FEAR is an unpleasant emotion caused by the belief that someone or something is dangerous, likely to cause pain, or a threat.
What is Your Biggest Fear as an Entrepreneur?
Daymond John asked the question of entrepreneurs “What is your biggest fear?” The answers varied but most common were:
- Getting taken advantage of by investors
- Going bankrupt
- Not getting a second chance
- Not being able to make ends meet
- Not making back the money put in
- Going out of business
Let’s face it…bad things happen. People disappoint. Businesses fail. But what is worse is if we never try at all. Many are the reports of individuals who attained success during the short term (as in technology), or over the long term.

People waste years trying not to waste hours. Admit it…many of us are like that… especially the type A’s.
People waste years trying not to waste hours, says author Michael Lewis.
Is being lazy a good thing? That’s what Michael Lewis said in this INC article why being lazy makes you successful. He postulated that being lazy is the key to Success. But is it for real? Lewis achieved much in life so I’d hardly say he was lazy.
However, what I’d say is that he focused on things that were in fact important, and did not spend time being busy… for busy sake.
Admit it…many of us are like that… especially the type A’s. If ever we find ourselves not doing anything we feel as guilty as ever. I have a colleague who broke her leg during a vcation trip and she found it like hell to be sitting in recovery…not being able to do the things she wanted to do.
So I encourage you the next time you find yourself being busy, it’s Prudent that you look around and ask the question, “is this adding value to my life…to my long term goals and dreams?”
If not, let it go. Refocus.

with success. Life happens. Things change. It happens even while we are en route…in full pursuit
Passport… a thing that ensures admission to or the achievement of something
Years ago when I managed the HR portfolio for a region of a major pharmaceutical international company, we sent managers to different countries worldwide. Once while in mid-air the laws changed in one country while a traveling manager was en route on business. Naturally stressed, the manager was detained by officials until we were able to sort out the ‘new’, yet needed requirements.
So it is with success. Life happens. Things change. It happens even while we are en route…in full pursuit. But I am here to tell you that things will sort themselves out if you keep going. If you never give up in spite of the obstacles that you may encounter while pursuing your dreams, goals, and aspirations.
Today, keep going…don’t stop.

the good we hold strong to promulgate to take us to even higher heights. For the bad, we need to release. If left to fester
Thoughts and chains are like Labels to be Conquered. Some are good, others bad. For the good we hold strong to promulgate to take us to even higher heights. For the bad, we need to release. For if left to fester, it will drag us into the ground forcing us away from our dreams, goals, and aspirations.
Got friends who are like festering chains? Let go of the relationship and start afresh.

Living the life you have always dreamed of is not difficult. It happens with planning, effort, and the ability to go on …to never give up even when things go wrong. It happens when you do what you have always wanted to even when you’re afraid. Fear often stops us in our tracks. Fear makes us get stuck… sometimes even for years, and sadly some even pass without getting past what held them back.
