Wow, what a weekend! I went from having a tonne of fun, to feeling silly (because someone decided to tell me - publicly - what they thought about my brand, which I don't have yet and made some rather unnecessary remarks about a very dear friend), to feeling overwhelmed and procrastinatey (new word), to feeling like I was in trouble, right back to feeling like my motives had purpose again! Crazy!
I just watched this happen to my beloved Tony this week too ... I saw how someone ripped into his dream and how this affected him and his excitement BUT then today had a friend email him and wanted to buy his product. Tony is so passionate about everything that he sets his heart and mind to and not everyone is going to understand why but now he sees that by staying persistent and consistent with what he believes can bring people joy, the Universe will give it right back!
From a very young age I had to take care of myself. So I learned quickly how to trust my gut! I know that what I have to offer people comes from a solid, loving and grateful heart space........
So why am I writing this and why are you reading this? Because the title says "Persistence Trumps Dream Stealers" and this means you clicked on it because you have also had a similar experience, or 3 or 20... and you are still in and you still love it. Good for you, give yourself some credit!
We know that many great inventors and many successful leaders were condemned for what they believed in but they forged ahead anyways. Only YOU know what your dreams are therefore only you can keep them alive.
KEEP GOING! Someone is waiting for you to share your gifts with them...
Are you a people pleaser? Do you need validation and approval from family, friends, colleagues, co-workers or your boss about your achievements? Well WE ALL DO, we all LOVE recognition ... but at some point when can we simply be happy with ourselves and KNOW in our heart that no matter what anyone says to us, we can be great? Does what they say really matter? Look at the big picture, will what they say matter in 5 years? Will we let them take us out of the game? Will we let them have that kind of power over us? We must learn to not judge them either, as this is like "drinking poison and expecting the person to die.." all we can do is learn to manage our own reactions.
Today is the day that you look yourself in the mirror, put your hand on your heart and declare "I AM ENOUGH!" and make a conscious choice to be around people who lift you up, who are healthy, who think positive, and breed a brighter future. Life is short, make it count!
BE GREAT... it's that simple! Do your best to be great, in every moment, in every gesture, in every breath... and make being great about kindness, compassion, giving, receiving, asking for help, giving someone a hand with no conditions attached to it, smile at strangers, buy the next person in front of you in a line up, a coffee!
The more you do this the more life will bring you happiness and greatness -- then rinse and repeat. Pour greatness into yourself first, then your family, your friends, clients, co-workers etc...
Recognize others even for the littlest things... re-cognize greatness in yourself too, even more so... be great be great be great!
