The new year is here and it is time to "run to your destiny!" Instead of setting resolutions for this year, get busy preparing for all the years to come. The work you do now will serve as a foundation for your future. It is time to go through your mind, phone, address book and press DELETE.
In order to move forward, there has be to be a separation of your past habits, especially, if they are affecting your life in a negative manner. Most are afraid, but, you have to get away from that which is familiar and leave something or someone and explore something new and different.
When I decided to move to Atlanta, in the beginning, I didn't tell anyone. It was a difficult decision in one aspect because I was very comfortable and I had a lot of family, friends, and business contacts in my area. My business was successful and in the natural, there was no reason to move. But, I knew in order for me to grow, I needed to make a change in my life.
I felt I had hit my "glass ceiling" in the area. As I thought more about it, I shared my idea with my mother, she said, "I don't want you to go, but, I know you need to go. I want to you to explore all your opportunities and spread your wings. I want you to be happy and you can always come home."
One of my mentors told me, "if you can start a business and make it successful once, you can do it again." Another mentor told me, "being comfortable and not challenging yourself is for lazy people. You're not lazy and when you challenge yourself, you grow and build character, and you should never stop growing."
Therefore, I knew I was thinking the right way. I knew it was time to move forward. In my personal life, I had to make a decision. Yes, it was hard. I had lifelong friends, former co-workers, employees who were like family, and loved ones who I had to tell good-bye, but, I did it. I wanted to learned something new, I wanted a different lifestyle, I wanted to meet new people from different cultures, and I wanted to explore the unknown.
I heard a speaker say, "you can't stay where you use to and do what you use to when God is calling you." Therefore, I ask, "what is God calling you to do?"
Create a Better Day!!!!
