[Taps mic] “Is this thing on?”
I’m still here! I know my posts have been few and far in between in comparison to the good ‘ol days when I first started writing, but so much has transpired since then that my time is more limited now. When I first started this blog I was truly trying to find my way and figure out my next move in life! I was dead serious about making sure that I follow my passions and find a career that would suit me in that regard. Every post (nearly every day) was a post to keep me uplifted and focused whether it be giving you spiritual food for thought or posting recipes or talking about travel. I was just “doing me” knowing in faith that things will work out. Well, they did!
Now I’m in school studying to be a Health Coach, but I’m also diligently working my travel business, among other things. I’m learning a lot about marketing and social media so that I can be a force to be reckoned with one day. And I’m networking and meeting new people — potential business partners and friends — so that I can surround myself with others that will encourage me to be the super successful person I was meant to be. After all, if I am the average of the five people that I hang around with the most then I need to get on the ball. I’ve been spending a lot of time with 2 and 3 year olds! LOL.
But seriously, have you heard that expression from Jim Rohn before?
You are the average of the five people you spend the most time with.
Take a moment and think about that. Who do you spend most of your time with? Are they encouraging you to be the BEST YOU that you can be either by their words (encouraging) or by their actions (them already being successful)? Or do you and your friends just talk about reality TV or trivial things and hang out partying all the time? That’s fine here and there, but is that all you really want out of life? Is that the highest expectation you have of your friends? Don’t you have a desire to do more or be surrounded by those that inspire you? I’m not trying to judge you if that’s what you want to do, but seriously think about it. I think you want more for yourself. You were put on this earth to do great things. And by great things, I don’t mean that you have to become famous. Helping others is a great thing. Giving your time to worthy causes are a great thing. Finding your passion and doing it is an excellent thing. I’m just saying don’t let life pass you by. You don’t want to grow old and have regrets. Let me put it this way. If you died today, what would be your proudest accomplishment? What would you have written in your obituary? Is that OK by you? Think about that . I’ll wait…
Steve Jobs sums it up best when he gave the commencement speech at Stanford in 2005. Check it out for yourself. Let it digest and then let me know what your obituary would say.
