This is the greatness you can choose

Greatness is a choice. Sometimes getting out of bed is like slaying a mythical monster. Other times it could be starting a business. But no matter what fears you face, or what fear looks like for you, facing them whatever they are is choosing to be great. Choose to defy them and live greatly. You can be…More

Feel behind in life? You needn’t

You’re not behind. You’re right where you need to be.  Just because so and so got that amazing title in their 20’s, or grew their business, published their book, got married, had kids, and did their thing before you did, that doesn’t mean you’re behind.  You’re on your own track. You have your own story.  Look…More

You can make today a great day

Every day presents an opportunity to rise to the occasion. Who you become, what you will do, what you will say “no” to, are all before you. They are a choice. You can choose. Choose well. And rise.More

Love yourself when you make a mistake

When we make a mistake, we might be harsh with others. But the person we are often harshest with isn’t anyone around us. It’s ourselves. Sure, you made a mistake. Yes, it was terrible. But why make it worse? Why punish yourself more? The mistake is bad enough. Let it go. Punishing yourself won’t change…More

You need to know this about failure to succeed

Failing isn’t just failure. It’s a sign that you are trying, attempting—alive. When you fail, it doesn’t mean you’re silly or a loser or even a failure. No. It says you tried doing something outside of your comfort zone. It means you’re an explorer, adventurer, believer. You’re courageous. You know that life isn’t just about…More

When creating feels impossible, you need to know this

Creating can feel like fighting nature: Impossible. Making that painting, writing that novel or blog post or, sometimes, even a sentence can make us break into a cold sweat. And it’s tempting to think, “Oh, I’ll just wait for inspiration to hit,” like a kid holding a kite as he waits for a strong wind…More

To succeed you need to know this

Failure is a part of the process of succeeding. You can’t have one without the other. So don’t despair when you don’t see the results you want, make a mistake on that project, or fail to find the right answer. Learn from it. Grow from it. Walk away stronger, smarter, better, and persist in pushing…More

This is the way you can succeed

Failing doesn’t mean you’re a failure. That’s a definition that is determined by you, not by your failures, mistakes, or even others. You make that decision every day by choosing what you do with your time, energy, talent. Get up and decide to learn from your failures and continue marching forward, trying this and that…More

One of the best ways to get a growth mindset

Growth happens when we try something new. But starting that new thing can be difficult; sometimes it feels impossible. It doesn’t have to be that way, though. You can break free and grow in ways you never thought possible by doing this.   Experimenting. More

When being imperfect can be your greatest asset

Even if you are incredibly flawed, you can still succeed and even reach great heights. You just need to be one thing: Dogged. Look at Vincent Van Gogh. For much of his life he felt like a failure, and you might be feeling like you can’t do anything right, let alone anything good. But you…More
