There are only two points that matter: The Moment, and The Vision.
What are you doing right now, and what do you want to create?
Stay focused in the moment and stay relentless toward YOUR vision.
The middle doesn’t matter – so be open and nimble and ready. Don’t get discouraged when all doesn’t go according to plan. Don’t let the downs shake you off course.
Take the hits, but remember where you’re headed. Notice the signals and follow the signs.
Go with your gut… As long as that bigger picture – that broader purpose – remains clear and honest and true, keep doing and keep moving.
You WILL get there.
Grateful as always for the highs, lows and all the spaces and places in between.
If there’s one thing I’ve learned over the years it’s that you just gotta keep going.
Keep moving, keep working, keep believing.
Don’t stop, don’t listen.
Follow your vision off a cliff and hit the ground running.
The journey is the gift and the process is the prize. Your passion is the fuel.
And when you learn to willingly and willfully give more than you get, then you are truly grateful; then you are truly happy.
So keep going. It’s a lifestyle, not a destination.
We all have fears. And insecurities. “Don’t be scared” is like saying “don’t breathe.”
Those feelings are part of what makes us human. And all of us have our own scale; our own tiers, and thresholds, and tolerance levels.
These are very personal emotions… It’s not about denying those feelings.
And it’s sure as hell not about ignoring them.
It’s just about how we handle them. How we recognize them. How we speak to them, and how we send them on their way.
And most of all, it’s about not letting them control us.
Get to know your fears, and work to understand your insecurities.
It’s the only way to become your best you.
Your personal passion is your most valuable asset.
Not your house. Not your car. Not the suits in your closet or the jewelry around your neck.
But your passion. What you love.
And that wild, crazy, unclear-to-everyone-but-unquestionable-to-you belief in the power of that passion. And that undying internal drive you have to work your freaking ass off to somehow, some way, WILL it into existence…
To manifest it from your mind and share it from your soul… That decision to give in to yourself so you can gift it to the world.
That one thing. That one feeling. That one purpose. That passion… If you decide to unleash it.
No bullshit, no shortcuts, no excuses. No “next times”, “next years” or “not yets.”
Then I promise you. I promise you… You can do ANYTHING.
Probably one of the most unheralded, underrated elements of success. Few people have the determination – and discipline – to lock their eyes on their prize, and stay relentlessly fixated on it, no matter what noise and distractions come their way.
No matter how many shiny objects dance on their periphery.
No matter what mirage or treasure or temptations whisper from beside and behind them.
The ability to stare straight at your vision, and work towards what you see… that’s powerful.
It doesn’t mean you won’t change course, because you’ll have to, dozens of times.
It just means you know where you’re headed, and you’re willing to aim every bit of your energy in that direction.
