This week has been a really crazy and tough. With new staff additions, new projects, and a to-do list the size of Texas, it has been really tough to stay motivated without being overwhelmed. With this in mind, I decided that I needed to meet with a few like minded entrepreneurs to discuss ways to balance work demands, tips to succeed and to get a jolt of energy. I attended the Tory Johnson's Spark and Hustle event and it was great!! And among the many things I learned, the one I share with you today is the most impactful - taking steps towards making it happen! It's no secret that everyone has different goals but what may be a surprise (or not) is that everyone wants to succeed at something and failure is still a seven letter word that has meaning to each of us. What seems to be the hardest is the courage to take the next step towards your dreams - see, dreams will never become a reality if they are only dreams (because this means that the only place they will reside would be in your head - and only you head). We all know what we want and to some extent we also know our potential so the hardest part is that you just have to believe it. If you choose not to take action because of the many things that happen - the things that are called life, then you are also abandoning yourself and those around you. Regardless of your dreams, the key is to take action. Just like you make a commitment to someone else, you have to make a commitment to yourself to get what you want. So if you never take a step, if you never plant any seeds, you will never be any closer to realizing those dreams!
