Personal Initiative

Ruff - Personal Initiative

Hello Leaders,

Today is a great day to analyze ourselves to make sure we are equipped for the success we dream of. To me the first step in chasing a dream is personal initiative. In order to progress there has to be a beginning action, “the first step”. This may sound simple and in some cases this may very well be a simple step, but let’s say this step isn’t an obvious one. Where do we start?

This question has many answers and the only wrong answer would be no answer (not starting anywhere at all). It doesn’t matter where you choose to begin in your journey to success. What does matter is that you do in fact start. Start anywhere. Start with brainstorming new ideas, create a plan, or just jump right in making an impact in your chosen field. Once that first step is taken, our dreams and determination to reach those dreams will align those next steps we need to take.

The possibilites are endless to where we can go, we just have to trust ourselves and take the first step. Whatever our mind can conceive and believe, our mind can achieve. Kudos to Napoleon Hill for that one. Believe in yourself and Dream Big!!!

Overcome Adversity

Ruff - Overcome AdversityWhen you’re in pursuit of your dreams and it seems that you are at the top of your game, life always throws that curveball. Be in the mindset of whatever can go wrong will go wrong, but the key is to be ready and brace yourself for it.

When I put on my Dream Big t-shirt this morning, I looked in the mirror and felt unstoppable. Although things haven’t gone exactly how I’ve planned or imagined them to go, I still walk in confidence and I still have faith. Sometimes you just have to take a timeout, take another look at the bigger picture, realize how far you’ve come, and why there is no turning back even though the journey is tough. Prepare yourself to fight through it.

In the midst of adversity you will find yourself. You will figure out who you are and what you’re really made of. No matter how high the odds are stacked against you, you have to keep moving forward. When you keep believing in your dreams and work hard to achieve them, you will realize that those mountains that used to be in your way look more like speed bumps now. Understand there will be unexpected circumstances and things will go wrong, but overcoming adversity is a key to living the Dream Big Lifestyle. Don’t give up and don’t limit yourself.

Happy Dream Big Friday,
