Processed with VSCO with f2 preset

The thought of “what’s next” can be a bit scary. I handle it by not giving any thought to it at all. I just do my best to focus on what’s presently in front of me. My biggest problem in the past was lack of drive and desire. Sitting idle, lacking focus. Honestly, truly, this world is ever changing. If you aren’t careful, it’s fast-moving place swallow you whole. You have to step out into the world every day knowing exactly what you want and not being afraid to get it. Lack of drive can be a killer. Start asking yourself, “Self, how do you plan to succeed with the same mindset?” A shift in your mindset and perspective of life overall should evolve to the point that you’re pushing yourself to make shit happen for you, not waiting around for it to fall into your lap. Just as the world around you is ever-changing, you yourself should be changing and evolving with it. Here’s a few ways to help you be more driven.

Don’t Just Think About It, Speak What You Want Into Existence

Yes, your power to manifest the life you want is real. I learned a long time ago that the manifestation of life’s most precious gifts come in the form of affirmation, prayer and hard work. You can believe in what you pray for all day long, but without hard work nothing will come of it. Faith without works is dead, boo.

You can’t expect the world to read your mind. You have to put it out there, and sometimes putting it out there is as simple as just saying, “Hey, can I have that?”

Stop Making Excuses

When we find ourselves making excuses and relying on others to create the fate of our tomorrows we become stagnant. Stop making excuses for yourself. Stop complaining about what has yet to manifest if you’re still procrastinating. This is your life, your world and what you want you must create it. Go out there and get it, No Excuses!

Do You Want To Look The Part or Really Be The Part?

Never mind answering the above question, it was rhetorical. I once lived and breathed to appear as if I had more and was more than who I truly was. I now live in a world of realistic standards. I no longer just want to look the part, I am the part. Invest in your visions. Spend money on the things that are going to get you ahead. Don’t spend you life living to appease or appeal to those who don’t matter. Invest in your goals.

Don’t Chase What’s Working For Them; Chase What You’re Great At

So often we go after the opportunities in life that look good on others. We want to pursue what someone else did or is doing because we see it working well for them. Key words, it’s working well for THEM! To invest your time into something that isn’t for you is detrimental to your future. Being overly invested in things we are not passionate about creates self-inflicted stress. Seek what works for you. Find your gifts and focus on perfecting them.


p style=”text-align:center;”>“It just means that your talents lie elsewhere, so take the opportunity to seek out what you are good at, and find a place where you can flourish. Once you do, you’re going to kill it.

Refuse to Hold On To Anyone or Anything That Stunts Your Growth

I am that woman who wholeheartedly believes in protecting her peace. I also understand that harmful people and situations hinder me from progressing in life. To achieve what you want you have to be willing to walk away from anything that doesn’t support you moving forward. You can’t progress when you’re afraid to cut out the things and people who are subtracting more than they’re adding. It takes true courage to admit what is no longer working. It takes true strength to walk away from anyone who is no longer growing with you. Own your life and the decisions that you make. Protect Your Peace. Start making the necessary changes in order to accomplish all the goals you set for yourself.


p style=”text-align:center;”>“Abandon anything about your life and habits that might be holding you back. Learn to create your own opportunities. Know that there is no finish line; fortune favors action. Race balls-out toward the extraordinary life that you’ve always dreamed of, or still haven’t had time to dream up. And prepare to have a hell of a lot of fun along the way.”
