Live by Design Using Baby Steps

Have you ever sat back and wondered whose life you’re living? You once had high hopes and dreams, but now you’re just living day to day. It’s not a life you chose, instead it feels more like the life you fell into.

You know what living a life you just fell into equals? Mediocrity! Ewww…

Are you living on purpose or are you living by default?

Guess what?!? You get to choose if you’re going to follow the crowd or if you’re going to live according to a plan to achieve your life’s purpose.

And I know YOU are no crowd-follower. You wouldn’t be here right now if you were looking for a comfortable, average, mediocre life.

Are you ready to take the first step?

Right now, COMMIT to living a life by design.

Don’t worry about the “how,” just commit and the process will evolve for you. Release yourself from default mode.

Make the choice: When you choose to live by design instead of by default, there is so much goodness to explore.

Listen, not everyone will support you, expect a little backlash, but know that their fear is on them, not you.

You only have one life, choose how you’re going to live it. Live your life by design, not be default.

I can’t promise living by design will be easy, but I can promise it will be worth it!

Baby steps, my friend. You got this! Share how you’re living your life on purpose.

The Consequences of Quitting


Do you feel like quitting? Maybe your goal is taking too long, it’s too hard, or you’re just not “good” enough.

Want to know a secret? If you quit too soon, you’ll never know what might have been.

The temptation to quit will be the greatest just before you are about to succeed.
Chinese Proverb

After working with hundreds of entrepreneurs over my career, I’ve learned that one of the most distinctive characteristics of success is the perseverance of commitment.

Ahhhh, there it is, the dreaded C-word: Commitment.

Commitment sometimes drags up fear. And fear often begets resistance.

But here’s the good news! Resistance offers you a choice: quit or continue.

Resistance is a call to action and an opportunity for growth.

The key is to anticipate the feeling of wanting to quit and make yourself a promise that the feeling will not overpower your commitment.

Remember WHY you started. If your passion is strong enough, you will never ever look for the easy way out!

Leave a comment letting me know WHY you started.

The Ancient Wisdom Every Entrepreneur Needs To Follow


Wouldn’t it be amazing to UNLOCK the kind of nonstop success you’ve dreamed of… and wouldn’t it be incredible if you just had to ask, and tada, money crashes through the roof right into your lap?

Hello! Welcome back to planet earth where the key to abundance and prosperity requires tending to your intentions by taking consistent action.

Seriously, there are gurus out there that promise you just need to set an intention and BOOM it’s yours.

As if!

Don’t get me wrong, setting intentions is a huge part of success… but there’s more!

Have you ever heard the parable of Two Farmers? It’s a great story about two farmers with the same seeds, but different mindsets. The story contains a very powerful message about decisions.


You see, your goals and intentions are like growing seeds.

If you just throw seeds on the ground and pray for rain you’ll be sorely disappointed at harvest time.

However, if you DECIDE to prep the land, carefully plant the seeds, pull the weeds, ask for help, AND pray for rain, your harvest will be bountiful.

You get to decide:

Choose a life of abundance and prosperity.


Choose a life of lack, poverty and blame.
(Yuck, please don’t choose this one!)

Consciously choose success! Start now by taking consistent action:

  • research
  • seek help
  • learn new skills
  • take responsibility for your success
  • AND pray for rain!

Share with us what you’re doing to tend to your seeds.
