I do. It takes work to stay focused on your goals. There are people, places and things that appear like they are leading you where you want to be. Sometimes you can notice late into it that you lost yourself and it will cost you more time and money to get you out of it.

If you keep getting yourself into situations like this one, the only way to stop is to stay focused on your goals and no matter how shiny the proposition is, say “no”. You say, “but what if I am missing out of the biggest opportunity of my life”? or “what the heck are you talking about?” LOL

If you don’t have goals and you have been asking for one, and something appears that you feel inspired by; that is completely different than being an optimistic person, riding “a train” of optimism and while you are riding that train, it makes you miss out on the opportunity that was on the “other train” which is you and your goals.

If you are reading this blog, you have a desire to make your life better and different. The openness and curiosity you have is your greatest strength and your greatest weakness.

How do you stay focused? You match up the new propositions that come into your life with your values and your interests. Your interests are not based in money. Remember, money is the consequence, not the goal. The goal is the kind of life you want to live.

How do you want to make people’s lives better? What can you contribute to make the world a better place? How do you spread light? How do you spread joy? When do you feel best? What gifts have you been given that light up your life and can allow you to help light up others lives.

We hope you have an amazing weekend!
