Growing up I always thought my life would be different than what it is. I was certain that I would be a sophisticated, talented, attractive, graceful, and fabulous woman who was president of a top Fortune 500 Company and had the world at my fingertips. As my life unfolded, I felt as far away from that and all I had imagined for myself as I could possible get. Until now. I’ve finally come to realize that I am that woman in so many ways, just in a different setting than I had imagined and so many things that I had imagined were out of my control, really aren’t.
Take 5-15 minutes everyday and plan your day. Include everything you can think of that you must accomplish today and at least one task that will bring you closer to your dreams and goals.
That one thing should be something that you don’t usually do. Something that puts you outside your comfort zone and moves you in a positive direction. It is uncomfortable at first, but being fearful and taking the action despite your fear is a courageous step on your journey to success. If your action results in a negative response, be persistent and don’t let the rejection define who and what you will be. Only you can decide to who and what you become.
