Passionate

"Nothing is as important as passion. No matter what you want to do with your life, be passionate."
Jon Bon Jovi

Passion is intimately connected with your reason for working to achieve the things that you most desire in your life.

We sometimes make the mistake of falling into dreary routines that have no connection to the things that we are passionate about all in the name of survival.  This is why we must consistently connect to the purpose behind our vision and stay on the path that is taking us to our greatest achievements.

Another key to success is to surround yourself with people who live with passion and purpose. Connected to their energy keeps you tapped into the source of life that continually reminds you that anything is possible.

Determined

"Some people succeed because they are destined, but most because they are determined."

Do you hold to your hopes and dreams as if they are the driving force behind your very reason for breathing? 
Or are your aspirations flights of fancy that you just "wish" for and that cross your mind from time to time when you have a few moments of downtime?

Have you determined that the body that you want to have, the business you want to start, the life want to create is worth whatever sacrifice it may require to obtain it? Are you determined to start early, finish late, wash, rinse, repeat until you begin to see progress and reap the rewards of your labor?

How determined are you to meet your goals? I have heard it said that when you want to succeed as badly as you want to breathe, you will find a way to make it happen.

You can't just wish for success. You must have a vision, attached to a plan, attached to action, attached to determination.

Determination combination with proper action will take you far. I promise.

Dreaming

In spite of the difficulties and frustrations of the moment, we must hold fast to our dreams. We must keep close to us the motivator, the reminder, the purpose for which we continue to work towards the things we most desire.

Dreams are the fuel of passionate, focused effort. For it is what we are passionate about that drives our routines and rituals.  

Unfortunately, we tend to get caught up in the details of day to day nothingness that pulls us away from the energy that our dreams give us. We can get so caught up in trying to survive that we forget to live. We are robbing ourselves of fully lived lives. We are forfeiting our dreams in favor of living inside a bubble of comfort and complacency.  A bubble that serves no purpose except to provide a place for us to in a hum-drum existence.

We must hold tight to our dreams, our visions of our best lives. And we must consistently take a series of small actions designed to get us to "That Place Called There."

Successful

"Success is a peace of mind which is a direct result of self-satisfaction in knowing you did your best to become the best you are capable of becoming."

That sentiment from John Wooden is one of the best expressions of how I have learned to define success for myself.

For it is truly up to me to decide what success looks like for me. I should not define it by the opinions of others - of family, of friends or even of society as a whole. My definition of success should be measured by the standards that I set for myself and live up to in a way that keeps me engaged in its pursuit.

I must also remain aware of the peculiar fact of life that says that as we move through this existence, there are times when the things that we believe to be true may require a re-assessment. As such, there may be times when how we define success should be tailored to a particular stage of life.

Regardless of success' definition, in all of its fluidity, we each have the capability to be successful, in some way, each day.

If I can end the day knowing that I have been my best, given my best, done my best, then, I am, in fact, quite successful.

Focused

"One of the reasons so few of us achieve what we really want is that we never direct our focus. Most people dabble their way through life, never deciding to master anything in particular."
Tony Robbins

It is often said that what you focus on, what you give attention to will come to pass.  With that, I find that when I give the most attention to the things that I care most about I make the surest most meaningful progress in those areas.

Too often, we have so many irons in the fire that we cannot tend to anyone in with any true dedication and we find ourselves not developing, not progressing, not getting where we want to be.

Lately, I have been working on making my focus even more directed toward fewer areas in my life - the areas that I most want to see positive change in.

With that decision, I can see how this focus is paying off and I am moving towards my best life and my most desired outcomes.  

Have you determined where you should focus your efforts? I promise you that once you figure this out and began to give your all in a very specific way, you will begin to create a better reality.

Awesome

"There's a lot of stress out there and to handle it, you just need to believe in yourself; always go back to the person that you know you are and don't let anybody tell you any different because everyone's special and everyone's awesome." 
Makayla Maroney

Are you talking yourself out of your awesomeness? Are you letting anyone else convince you that you are not capable of becoming all that you were purposed to become?

When you stop believing in just how miraculous it is that you were created, you begin to lose sight of your awesomeness.  

Be confident in the fact that you have within you the same level of ability and potential of those who are most successful and who you most admire.  We were all given seeds.  The seeds of others are no better than those you hold.  They may be different seeds but all seeds possess the same ability to grow and bear fruit if they are planted and nurtured.  

Your seeds are awesome.  You are awesome. Own it. 
Take command of your awesomeness....TODAY!

Miracles and Blessings...
