Be the Change

?”Light tomorrow with today!”

– Elizabeth Barrett Browning

March 6, 1806 – June 29, 1861, English Poet

How we live our lives each and every that make our tomorrows. What we do today dictates how the rest of our lives will unfold.

It took me a long time to realize it and I spent a great deal of my life being self-indulgent. I slept in; I drank more than I should have; I didn’t always exercise the way I needed to and I rarely got enough sleep.

I’m not sure how or when I began to reign in my obsession of living in the moment without caring what would be for the next day, but it was a gradual process. I remember deciding to spend more time at home, but I’m not sure what triggered the decision. I went from being out every night of the week in my 30’s to rarely going out once a week, then once a month.

I began to seek out individual relationships with those I enjoyed being around rather than being around groups of people who wouldn’t have noticed whether I was there or not.

Slowly, I began to gain control of my life, allowing each and every day to have a purpose and every purpose have a deeper meaning.

Defining Success

  • Posted on December 21, 2011 at 10:08 pm

“Success is often achieved by those who don’t know that failure is inevitable.”

–Coco Chanel, founder of Chanel, Inc.

I’ve often wondered what makes the difference between those who succeed beyond their expectations and those who struggle throughout their lives.

Can you imagine how finite the difference might be? It could be as minute as knowing one right person or to have been in the right place at the right time versus someone who always seems to miss the mark. People misinterpret the degree of circumstances success might offer.

Success has a different meaning for each person. For some, success is the amount of money they can accumulate; while to others it is how much free time they have; and to others it is how their relationships are with their family and friends.

Whatever the case is for you, when you have a clear vision of what success means to you, it will be easier to achieve because you can be more targeted on what it takes you to discover your success.

I love to help people discover what their success definition is. Most often they have never thought of what it means to them or how they might achieve a level of success they night be proud of because of the level of impact it has on their lives and their family.
