More Than Just a Dream

Every dream unrealized is like a masterpiece never painted, a hit song never sung, a great book never written. Every work of art began as a sketch or a dab of paint on a canvas. Every song started out as a single note. Every book originated from a single thought jotted down on a page.

Every dream realized began with a step of faith, a single act of courage. Make today the day you step into greatness. It only takes a single act of courage to take that first step of faith.

Balance Beyond the Busyness

Busyness is used as a measure of success. If able to do more, have more and be more, we somehow feel in control of our lives. If you feel this way, you’ve come to the right place.

Finding balance beyond the busyness is possible. The answer is inside of you. But you have to slow down long enough to hear your own thoughts. Make time for yourself daily. Rediscover what you love to do, and do it. And if you have a goal, take action every day. The size of the step is unimportant. Just be consistent. Do it for you.

Making space for important things in life is key. Goals need to be challenging yet realistic and attainable. The only way to make space is to reorganize, prioritize and declutter your life.

Remember, always push yourself just a little further than what’s comfortable. Don’t be afraid to step outside your comfort zone. And make it a habit to take one more step every time you feel like giving up.
