Deliberate Success

Be deliberate

As I wrote about my 2018 goals in my last post, I have chosen to be more Deliberate this year — more conscious and intentional with my decisions and my life. I believe this behavior will lead to greater success in all I set out to achieve this year. So to start things on a positive note, I would like to share a quick post with a few words of inspiration for this first week of the new year.

It’s a time for reflecting on last year – what worked and didn’t:

“Step out of the history that is holding you back. Step into the story you’re willing to create.” ~ Oprah Winfrey

And a time for making our plans for this new year to be better than the last:

“You are never too old to set another goal, or dream a new dream.” ~ C. S. Lewis

And finally, for me, it’s a time to embrace my word and focus on what that means for me in building a purposeful path to a successful and happy year:

“The way into the hall of success always passes through the chamber of decision. Decide to be a success; success is deliberate.” ~ Israelmore Ayivor

deliberate

I hope you are having the best week! Have you set any goals for 2018 or embraced a word for the year? I would love to hear your thoughts.

Cheers!

Not Afraid to Fail

For some people the phrase “failure is not an option” are words to live by. I tend to look at things a little differently. I had a boss a long time ago who used to tell me, “No guts, no glory” when I was a little hesitant to push a button on an upgrade. Those words helped me gain confidence and get over my fear of failing, because even if I failed, I learned something from the experience.

“A life spent making mistakes is not only more honorable but more useful than a life spent doing nothing.” ~ George Bernard Shaw

So don’t be afraid to make a mistake. Be afraid of never trying!

Cheers!
