Inspiration comes but it has to find you working. Pablo Picasso

I adore this quote, because its truth resonates with me whole-heartedly.

When we want something in life, its NOT enough to dream about it, hope that something comes our way, wish upon a star that our dream job falls into our lap, that we meet the man/woman of our dreams, travel to amazing destinations . . . we actually have to take A C T I O N. I think that is the key word. People fail to put their plans + dreams in action, they can spend hours on pinterest inspiring themselves and dreaming of a life they wish they had instead of actually taking the steps to get there.

It can seem mighty overwhelming, I know, but what if you just took it one step at a time? You want to start a business? Start by simply writing out your vision or the ONE mission you want to accomplish with it (every business has to fill a need). Do a old school brainstorming map. If you want to travel to your dream destination plan out your finances and see if it is possible in 1 - 2 - 5 years...however long it will take you, start saving now and it WILL happen, but you have to take the steps to get there. We only have one life, so lets do this!

I guess what I'm trying to say is that it's SOOO easy to get wrapped up in wanting/wishing what other people have and the lives they are living (HELLO the world of social media + instagram) but what if you truly, truly believed that you could & CAN live the life you want. Those people that are actually doing the things that you want/hope to do are L I V I N G it, they are taking steps - putting themselves out there, knocking on doors, shaking hands, working hard physically, mentally and spiritually.

So as we approach a new week I challenge you to start taking action, take small steps, because small, minuet steps are better than doing NOTHING. By doing nothing, you will become nothing . . . Give out greatness, and greatness will come back. Be the light, and goodness will abound.
