“We spend January 1st walking through our lives, room by room, drawing up a list of work to be done, cracks to be patched. Maybe this year, to balance the list, we ought to walk through the rooms of our lives…not looking for flaws, but for potential.” ― Ellen Goodman

 

Live A Dream

“The hardest thing to get over when you’re trying to live a dream is the possibility that you might fail or that it might not be for you. But the truth is, that’s not the worst thing in the world. If you fail or find out that you don’t like something, then you just got closer to finding out what you’re truly meant for.” – Ashley C. Ford

Pursue It Every Day

“Today, choose to believe in and explore the power of your own engagement. This means to fully connect to your calling and passion in life. Lean into it. Pursue it every day ~ despite the distractions in your life, or in spite of any perceived limitations. Decide to live far beyond any past regrets or future excuses. DETERMINE to find a way or make a way. GO FOR IT!! Choose to be unstoppable in pursuit of your GREATEST life!” – Les Brown

Your Best Destiny

“That “something” you seek is God’s best life for you. It is what you dream about in the corners of your imagination. It is everything good and right for you and your future. It is what I call your best destiny, and it means being the best you that you can possibly be. Your destiny is within your reach if you are willing to risk a few steps into the unknown.” -Wintley Phipps

The More Things You Try

Ultimately, success is all about taking your shot, over and over again. Sometimes you may win, sometimes you will definitely lose, but the more things you try, the more chances you have of succeeding. Put the power of numbers on your side. Take as many shots as you can. There’s no guarantee of success, but when you don’t take a shot, there’s a definite guarantee of failure. – Jeff Haden

SAY YES

steps

Say “yes” to as much as possible, but make sure it means something. Don’t be the person whose “yes” means “maybe” or “depending on how I’m feeling that day” or “if something better doesn’t come up” or “sure, but it’ll probably be late.” Say “yes” and mean it. Say “yes,” and throw yourself into the experiences it brings. Say “yes,” and hold yourself accountable for the follow-through. Say “yes,” and figure out how to get it done. If that means being more selective about your “yes,” so be it. Because, in the wise words of Amy Poehler, “What else are we going to do? Say no? Say no to an opportunity that may be slightly out of our comfort zone? Quiet our voice because we are worried it’s not perfect? I believe great people do things before they are ready.” Kelsey Manning

Every Night & Every Morning

“Write down your top 10 goals. Then pin that piece of paper up next to your bed. Every night when you go to sleep, read those goals to yourself. And every morning when you wake up, read them again. Soon you’ll find yourself dreaming about your goals at night, and motivated to achieve them during the day.”
