It’s Time to Win

A lot of our day to day routine is a relentless cycle brewed by powers we feel we have no control over.

We strengthen this destructive mindset by continuing on the path of the mundane. Forgetting our art and our passion to feel secure in our world and afraid to take a risk to make a difference.

Our urge to seek comfort is a stark difference from the desires of our ancestors who battled and risked their lives to survive winters and gather food for their tribes.

I don’t want to get all preachy, but it’s time to risk something and win. Don’t quit your job, but go after something that will change your life forever.

This week has been all about organizing my book making process and refining my editing process.

I’ve broken things down to Writing, Editing, and Marketing/Publishing. Each portion is 100% essential to preparing your book for your audience. If you don’t give it your all something will fall flat and you’ll be wondering what happened.

P.S. Have an amazing day. There is love to share and a world that needs the best of us. Most importantly, we need the best from ourselves.

Building Dreams

The best way to cure a long bout with a creative slump is usually a brain dump.

The intellectual offload eases the neural stress load and offers a reprieve to the modern busy world.

Afterward, I’ve always found it’s more fun to categorize and sort the findings for mental clarity. I usually have more fun with the sorting.

In other news, I’ve finished the draft of the second installment of the Dorean Black Series. I’ll be announcing the name in the coming weeks.

This week’s photo is from my efforts to remain invisible in the visible world. I’m always amazed by what you find when you search mundane places for inspiration.

I hope you have an amazing day. Stay purposed and keep writing.

Growth

When you look at the world as more than bottom lines and growth strategies you arrive at the true opportunities.

True opportunities offer space to create with abundance and share meaning beyond economics.

Work beyond the most common strategies and find a way to connect with the people you serve on a deeper level. Moving beyond the numbers and the surface level interaction offers true opportunities for growth.

Writing is Life

Believing in yourself is the key to achieving your greatest accomplishments.

Writing has always been my deepest passion, and I don’t feel right if I’m not scribbling words onto a sheet of paper.

For me, it’s always been the thrill of crafting a new story or sharing a dream with others that has driven me to write.

I didn’t have to be perceived as the best at it or the best at grammar and punctuation to continue this calling. What mattered most was that the voice and visions deep inside me had life.

Giving voice to and applying action to your deepest passion is the greatest tool you have on the journey of self-development. Keep building and keep expanding your story on your path to journey to greatness.

P.S. My web series is finally live and I’ve got a new story on my portfolio site. Keep working on your vision. Keep building day by day.

Your Mornings

Your mornings belong to you.

Today may be the perfect day to set the tone for the rest of your week.

Clear the clutter and start your day with a meeting with yourself, two-hours of interrupted time for your art, or creating a list of pros and cons for your goals.

Don’t think about it. Get up and do it.

Your Time

Taking power over your schedule is one of the most significant steps toward achieving your goals.

Often, there is an ongoing battle between our obligations and and time for our art. And sometimes, the obligations win. They stress us out. They can force us into a creative funk.

Luckily, you run your calendar. Invert your day, schedule everything, even fun. I bet you’ll find a place for your creativity.

Your Choices

There is a light inside us all waiting for the greatest destiny, the deepest achievements, the most amazing challenges.

Get to work and don’t look back. The day is yours.

Satisfaction

The best satisfaction is realizing you helped someone and changed a life for the better.

Bring truth to fact the world is abundant and filled with opportunity. Make space for growth and abundance by becoming a resource, a confidant, and a teacher to your peers and audience.

Be clever and bold with your assertions and be smart with your targets and goals.

Paint the picture you see inside by letting go of extraneous obligations as you stay on the path to your best.

The day is yours. Be bold and help others as you work to achieve your very best.

Working Smart

It will take tons of heart and diligence to conquer your next challenge.

The good thing is you’ve got more than enough heart and more than enough courage to make it through.

Stay focused and resilient as each step moves you closer to your goal.

You’ve got this. Keep working smart.

The Hustle

Finding yourself while the chaos is strongest is a defining moment that determines our greatest strength.

Keep hustling that hustle till the 9 to 5 melts away and you’re where you want to be. You have goals and the choice to follow them.
