“Commitment is what tran…

Commitment is what transforms a promise into reality. It is the words that speak boldly of your intentions. And the actions which speak louder than the words. It is making the time when there is none. Coming through time after time after time, year after year after year. Commitment is the stuff character is made of; the power to change the face of things. It is the daily triumph of integrity over skepticism.”
~Abraham Lincoln~

I challenge everyone this weekend to make a commitment to a better you. Often times we wait until the New Year to re-invent or renew ourselves. START NOW! The world is waiting to feel your impact! #DesignYourLife!

Who Is Your Partner?

one that shares, one associated with another especially in an action.

 

Have you ever felt that you could do everything by yourself, only to find out that you were sadly mistaken? Are you looking to improve or excel in an area of life? If this is you then you probably need a partner or partners. Hey Batman had Robin, Cagney had Lacey, Starsky had Hutch, and so on and so forth. You need someone too! Right now, I am on a mission to improve EVERY facet of my life from business, to spirituality, to image, to health, and everything in between. I have realized that I can not re-invent myself by myself Why, you ask? This is because I am not an expert in any of these arenas and I need to align myself with those who are experts to achieve OPTIMAL results.

Many people assume that their significant other should be the person that can be their ALL-AROUND partner. And while some people are lucky enough to have a husband or wife that will CONSISTENTLY work-out with them, go to church with them, give sound business, beauty, and health advice, most of us just aren’t that lucky. Now that is not to say that over time your significant other can’t help you in all of these areas, because they can if they want to. But initially, that is a lot of pressure and assumed roles to put on any one person.

So I challenge you today, to examine the areas of life that you wish to improve. Write them down. Then find a mentor, coach, or advisor who will help you set goals and and plan out how you can effectively execute them.

 

Invest In You

to use, give, or devote, as for a purpose or to achieve something

Recently, I have been apart of many conversations regarding investments. With the recent Facebook IPO frenzy, everyone is putting on their Wall Street hats and are hyped to go dump their savings to invest in Facebook. It amazes me how many people are willing to invest in someone else’s success before their own. To be clear, I am an advocate of SMART investing when you are willing AND able. However, I am a full fledged cheerleader of investing in one’s self.

R.O.I. (Return On Investment)

In April, I attended a Social Media Workshop that was held in downtown New York City. The workshop was ridiculously priced at $25.00!!! For the amount of invaluable information, I would have payed 10x’s that amount! In the past year, I have invested more time, money, and effort into myself than I have in my entire life. The return on investment on that is priceless. You can not put a price tag on self development, a healthier body, and/or a better spirit. All of these things make you a better person and in business people work with people they like.

So I challenge everyone who reads this to try investing in themselves before they invest in a company. Things such as books, seminars, conferences, fitness activities, better food, volunteering, charities, etc., all are all investments for a better you!
