Are you AFRAID to be great?






We all know that woman who LOVES to cook and entertain, we tell her she should open a restaurant. She normally responds with something to the effect that she's flattered, she's thought about it, but she thinks she'll fail. 

We all know the artist who is their own worst critic. Their work is amazing but they can't see it. 

We all know the person in Corporate America who has the best business idea, but isn't quite ready to step out on faith. 

We see and walk past these people everyday. What's stopping them?

We all are born with a specific set of talents and abilities. I believe, no matter your religion, everybody was blessed with certain gifts. Chances are you believe you have certain gifts too. There's something that you're good at that others struggle with. You know that thing that people practice for years and you can make look easy? The thing that sets you apart from most people you know? Maybe there are several things that answer that question. Yea those! They may be your gifts!

Now that we've established what some of your gifts are, are you applying them? 

Our creator gives us gifts so we can affect those around us in a positive way. 

Are you affecting those around you? 

If the answer to that is 'no'...why not? 

Our gifts , with nourishment and nurturing, can affect many in our communities, cities, states, countries, and in some cases the world!


Will you practice and build your craft? 

Will you apply your gifts to change lives around you? 

Will you change the world? 

Will you be great? 

Or are you afraid?

Let's get to work..


Do you want to sell sugar water for the rest of your life, or do you want to come with me and change the world?” — What Steve Jobs

Are your best days in the past or are they yet to come?

Ask yourself.
Are your best days in the past  or are they yet to come?
Well, when you ask 99% of  people out there, here’s what  happens.
They pause and then…
They're going to kind of look down and let out a little sigh and they’re going to tell you  something like: 
"Back in my day… 
...I was the shit." 
Or they’re going to say: 
"Yeah... life used to be so easy… Life used to be… so chill."
Right?
That’s just depressing. 
Seriously.
Who cares about your past?
I’m telling you if your best days  are in the past, you’ve got a  problem.
A big one.
It tells me first of all, you aren't looking forward to anything. You probably hate your work.

 You probably have no control of your

No vacancy!

Don’t allow people or bad thoughts to occupy space in your head rent free!
I own some real estate and I would never allow a tenant to stay rent free. In that same spirit I would never allow negative conversations or gossip to occupy my mind rent free. My mind is the most valuable piece of real estate I own. The ideas that live there have given me the greatest returns. To think I would allow a non-paying relationship or conversation to stay there for free when paying ideas are looking for a room is crazy! 
Let negative people be negative with their negative lives and their negative bank accounts! 
When it comes to negativity...
repeat after me...
No Vacancy!
