Saw this talk on TED talks about three months ago and it was trans-formative, Take some time, sit down, grab a cup of tea or coffee, maybe a little snack and enjoy.

Steve Jobs 1997′s Commercial “Here’s to the crazy ones” was a touch of genius and inspiration. Here we see the essence of what it means to be you, and not to conform to the “status quo” as society deems it to be. If you, and I mean you want to be successful in life, don’t waste your time listening to others. Many times they will either laugh at your dreams, tell you how wrong you were, and/or wait, wait to see you fail. Some relationships cannot be changed, but don’t let it change you. Be Crazy, Be Daring, But Most of All, Be YOU!
I’ve been thinking for sometime that I’m a massive procrastinator, but ET (Eric Thomas) breaks it down very simply. “Is it important to you!” Most of the time we don’t know what we want and what’s important to us. We allow society to put an image of what is important and we, like cattle, begin to move in that direction. We begin to beat up on ourselves saying we ain’t where we want to be because of this or that, however, we haven’t stop to think where is it that we really want to be.
I’ve found myself in this situation quite often, quite recently I wanted to begin to learn a software program. I put it on my to-do list, set the alarms, bells and whistles, however, when it came down to it, it took a week to get to it. Was it important? Well, not really. It’s something I kinda want to learn, I don’t have a big drive to learn the program, so it’s somewhat important. There are varying degrees of what is important and not important to us. It’s all what you decide, so, what’s important to you and only you!
You gotta be hungry, be a lion. Run to your goals and your dream…
Great Bit of Motivation for the Day, I had a bit of trouble linking it earlier but it was a must share.
Wishing you and yours an amazing 2014 filled with adventure, laughter, and success
Believe in you, don’t allow others to take that away from you. For years, I’ve let others determine my life, but now, I stand up and do not let them take me down, Because I deserve more. Remember, you matter!
“Fear is not real. The only place that fear can exist is in our thoughts of the future. It is a product of our imagination, causing us to fear things that do not at present and may not ever exist. That is near insanity. Do not misunderstand me danger is very real but fear is a choice. We are all telling ourselves a story and that day mine changed.”
-Will Smith, After Earth (2013)
Many times when we face a new part of our Journey we come up against unimaginable fear. Fear is just thought that we create in our own minds, a product of imagination. Take control of your mind, your imaginations, and you can conquer your fear.
