One of my friends, Dustin Farivar, was in town for a day this week and as usual I learned more from him in a few hours then I usually do in weeks. He has taught me so much regarding social media, branding, and building relationships, and is no doubt somebody to pay close attention to. I wake up daily to an inspirational “morning quote” in my email box and usually a few articles that are relevant to my goals and interests. One of the many things we discussed during this most recent visit was the idea of setting goals for ourselves and knowing where we want to end up, even if we have no idea how we will get there. I truly believe that if we want something badly enough, and we put it out into the universe, that we will both subconsciously and consciously do whatever it takes to move closer to that goal. Dustin compared it to a GPS system. We have to know where we specifically want to end up but we don’t have to know exactly how to get there. There are many different routes we can take, some longer than others, but they all will eventually get us there if we know where it is we would like to be.
I’ve been very fortunate in life but there have certainly been many times where the odds were far from being in my favor and I somehow beat them anyways. Just because something hasn’t been done before, doesn’t mean it can’t be done. In my opinion, it actually makes it more appealing to achieve.
I have wonderful parents who taught me that I could be anything I wanted in life and I credit them for the amount of drive and passion I have today in whatever it is I am doing. No matter how many people are telling you that you can’t do something, always remember that if you want something badly enough, your opportunities are endless. The only person that needs to believe in your success is you!
I hope everybody had a great weekend and that you spend this week beating the odds!
