It’s hard to remain motivated and excited about our big goals and future dreams when there are so many exciting and thrilling nightmares happening all around us!

That said, here are a few reminders that you may have forgotten in the heat & hoopla of these challenging times:

— Progress, growth and success are simply a consequence, an upshot, a byproduct of relentlessly doing the work.

— It’s what we are not doing that could move the dial and make a difference. It’s the confronting work we resist that could produce the breakthrough we so desperately crave.

— Change is not a sin. Denying it is.

— Procrastination can be ass-kicked! At any moment we have the power to quit a mind-numbing, time-crunching, useless habit and choose where to give our complete attention.

— Your Choice: Stand up on your own two feet and declare, “this I shall do!” Or, continue to vacillate in indecision and wallow in the mire.

— Behind every great jaw-dropping success there’s an artist or entrepreneur who faced a difficult internal struggle at a critical moment of choice: choose risk, and possibly become a legend. “Flinch” and possibly become an unexceptional footnote.

Important because in the heat of the hoopla, never forget who you are as a crazy, creative genius. And lean on all the experiences you’ve had, the knowledge you’ve acquired, the talents and skills you’ve learned, and your unique ability to create, invent or dance your way out of any crummy situation.
