How do you know if you do not try?

Life is about being curious and exploring those curiosities–to do what we are drawn to and what we feel attracted to… There is no such thing as failure–if anything, when we go ahead and take action, we learn if it was meant for us or not–to see who it is we do and do not want to be. Our main focus is our lives alone–no one else is walking our walk besides us, no one has our story but us and our stories are what we have to share with others!

Therefore: take a chance by making a choice and going through with something you have always wanted to do… it could always turn out to be the best thing that has happened to you or you will simply learn it was not for you…but the only way to know is if you move forward, take steps and DO it. It is YOUR life–explore it, have fun with it, play with it and go out and LIVE IT… Action is key!

“Life is trying things to see if they work.” –Ray Bradbury

P.S. I have been told “NO” many times, I have also had others tell me that they were not interested in me and my work, even when I show up, they told me they would call and didn’t… but this does not stop me because I believe in myself; I believe in the beauty of my dreams and this is something I am wholeheartedly set on–is living out my dreams (whether they are short or long-term goals; I am determined to live them out).

Just because one or two or three, four, five, or six people tell me they are not interested does not mean I am no good and that I am going to give up–if anything, this makes me more motivated in trying harder and giving even more– because I know each step is moving me closer and each experience is a learning opportunity to make me better— Each step I do take, to me, is successful because I am putting myself ‘out there’ to see if this is who it is I want to BE. It is all about listening to our hearts and following our dreams and the only one we can depend on is ourselves to make IT happen!

Believe in yourself and you can Create What You Want!

I believe in myself and as long as I continue putting effort into what I love, I feel I am thriving… especially if I inspire, motivate and encourage others to live a fuller, richer life for themselves!!!

“Perseverance is a great element of success. If you only knock long enough and loud enough at the gate, you are sure to wake up somebody.” -Henry Wadsworth Longfellow
