Commit then work it out.
If someone else has done it – you can too.
Unite with people who respect and lift your dreams.
Bow out of societies, clubs, jobs and relationships that don’t.
We have two choices in the story we tell ourselves…choose the one that inspires you, stretches you…ignites you!
Friendships at work and at play are crucial. If you don’t feel safe, trusted or loved. Move on…they are not elevating the real you.
See the beauty in everything, every person and action. It will deliver love and joy, especially if focussed ‘on the now’.
Take risks. Never go through the front door – the window or down the chimney are far more exciting! Fear means you are going to do something special and so give it your all. Only by moving can you change course and experience the life that destiny has laid out for you.
Fuel your passions and love for life. You only have one.
Make every moment count on your clock… no one else’s… and live every day like it’s your last. It maybe.
