I love writing letters. Turning my thoughts into letter form is stimulating. Most of all the satisfaction comes through it being uninterrupted. I write to my love, my kids, my friends and most of all…my God.
At times letters go unmailed.Oft they may even be ignored. This has not been a problem because my feat was to clear my head. Pause, take a second or two, and read a letter written a few months ago.
We are stepping into a New Year! As always it is a time to reflect on the past where we have come, and the journey ahead. This year I didn’t get to do a lot of things I wanted to, but I experienced something new. I ventured into new territory and published my research on leaders and how they attained success! My book titled Success Strategies of Caribbean American Leaders in the United States is now available on Amazon.com, Barnes&Noble.com, and other sites. Can you believe it?
I am most excited because I started something that I believed in, persisted, and have completed it! I learnt a lot during the process.
This is my desire for you. To go after your dreams. No matter what it is—just simply Dream! Big or small! When you accomplish it, the feeling is exhilarating! As we approach the New Year, spend some time defining what Success means to you. What will it look like? How will you know when you have achieved it? Just Dream. But like I have always said, after you dream then you have to work that dream. Put the plans in place then step out and do what you must to make it real.
I’m not saying it’s going to be easy….no way am I saying that. But the most important thing is to persist. Never give up. When the going gets rough, have something or someone, (maybe a mentor), that will encourage you to keep going. You know I’m always here for you and anyone else that needs encouragement to achieve. I learnt this in my many years managing people. That’s what I do best. It brings me great joy watching people achieve their best potential…moreso you.
So darling, Dream big! Then step forward in faith! You will achieve Success if you never give up!
