This month we will reach back and polish reflections from previous posts that have impacted our future growth. The month of July is filled with reflective events to help you capitalize on your freedom to be the person you were created to be or growing the business you desire to grow. It is an honor and privilege to live the American dream. So much is taking place. Our country is postured for change! While attending to my goals list, I thought about how relevant my personal freedoms are to develop a life filled with excitement and to be able to continue to help people grow their lives and business through my coaching practice and business endeavors. Sometimes we are one dimensional and in being so, we never fully recognize how exciting our life could be if we stepped out the box and allowed ourselves to dream big. Becoming a year older added value to the opportunities that I know that are before me during the seasons of my life – the celebration lasts for a lifetime. Nothing should hold you back from exploring the life opportunities you encounter. Challenge your oppositions! The summer heat should remind you to intentionally turn up the intensity of creating and implementing solid strategies for living with passion. I am so ready and can feel the atmosphere changing.

We allow the fear of change, a poverty mentality and other people’s approval to slow us down and sometimes stop us in our tracks.  We consciously need to learn how to step over those types of hurdles and take hold to the power within each of us to accomplish what we want to do. Doing equates to action. Consider the practice and preparation of the Olympic athletes. They prepare and expect victory. Take a look at where you are today. Is this where you desire to be? Are you doing what you expected to be doing? If it is and you are, celebrate and live exceedingly abundantly and bless others. If it isn’t, determine now to improve it or change it – one day, one page, one giant leap - just do it now. It's amazing how our stories reflect our character and our dreams. Wake up everyday knowing that You Are, You Can, You Will and You Believe!
