. . . when you put more into yourself.

stop blaming peopleListen we’ve all done it. It could be ideas you’ve had that you’ve been waiting on, or wish you had gone to the meeting but you didn’t, or maybe it was right in front of you and you missed it.

I get it. I’ve talked to so many people about this and we’ve all been there.

So why do we keep missing it? Missing the boat as some would say?

Well….. the people who have “gotten on the boat”, have developed something that we all have and that is our AWARENESS. We have to be aware of what’s in front of us, because we are always in the right place at the right time, but if we are not aware of it, then we’ve missed the opportunity.

So how do you do this? I could give you some lengthy answer but the truth is, it’s really simple. You have to study! Study you!

Start by asking yourself some questions, like “what do I really want?”, “what do I really love to do?”

This is a really hard question for most people, but it is the starting point to anywhere.

What gets you inspired? What’s that idea you’ve been thinking about that keeps coming back, for you to only put it back on the shelf again? That’s a sign!!

I love hearing and reading about successful people and how they got there. To me, it’s so intriguing. You see, we look at successful people as they are, but we don’t realize the journey it took for them to get there. Talk to any one of them, it took persistence, discipline, strength and desire.

It didn’t happen over night for them, so why do we expect it for us?

For the past two years I have been diving deep into studying me and finding out who I am. I had no idea when I first began because I was so lost. I would start so many different things but never really finished any of them. Now I know why I was doing that. I’m becoming aware of who I am, what I’m passionate about and what I love to do. You won’t find out until you take the time to do it, but I promise you once you do, you will be so grateful you did!

And now, I keep studying me. Now I can see so much further than I could before, I see things differently and I’m acting differently, therefore my results are changing dramatically. The more I put into me, the more things start to change around me. The universe moves everything you need closer to you as you move closer to your dream. I’ve had a dream I’ve been shelving for awhile….. recently I decided to dust it off and make it a reality. Why? Because I keep thinking about it. Well, thinking about it will never get you closer to your goal. You have to make a decision to do something about it! Well you can do the same!!

There is no end to what you can do! You have so much inside of you just waiting to be brought to the surface!

I’ll leave you with this Mark Zuckerburg article! I find it very fitting! It all starts with an idea and falling in love with your idea!
