If you are afraid to
stand out from the crowd with either your opinions or actions, are resistant to
trying something new, have a
need for safety or an uncontrolled desire
to spend, these above mentioned perspectives won’t allow you to break free from
the mundane. If you allow Groupthink or peer pressure to manage your affairs,
have a life filled with all the things you “can’t do,” and have a penchant for
believing the negative news on TV and websites, you won’t find the motivation or
energy to move towards a life of your own choosing. It will “seem” that
everything is conspiring against you and holding you back.

You have to break out and stand apart from those constricting and narrowing
points of view.
As childlike or
unsophisticated as it may sound to you, your passion for a dream and the
persistence you apply to making that dream a reality is the fire that will get
you there. Not everyone is born wealthy, has a top notch education, or a
supportive family structure. How you apply yourself to your future makes all the
difference in the world.
Couple this with knowing
who you are and what matters to you. Being honest with yourself and with those
whom you love and the willingness to learn from mistakes is invaluable. Use any
miscalculations as stepping stones, not as reasons to hold you back or to never
forgive yourself. If you feel that you have bungled something, make a new choice
or an adjusted one and move in the direction where you want to go.

move forward. Drop what doesn’t work - and move forward again.
Be open minded to
options and opportunities that present themselves and be willing to try
something new to make your plan come to fruition. Consider exotic combinations
and out-of-the-box solutions to any challenge you might encounter. Let’s face
it. Most people do what is expected of them and follow a bland plan. They are
not used to considering a variety of aspects which can lead to novel ideas and
creative solutions. And, I doubt they are reading our website and books.
Be YOU-nique. Utilize
your personal creativity and hold the opinion that there is enough – for you and
for everyone. If you believe in limitation and lack, that will be what you
look for, and we guarantee you will find exactly that.

together, going in the same direction
Having a spouse or
