Be Yourself

The financial magazines and news programs, along with the advertising agencies on Madison Avenue, would have you believe that in order to be successful you have to be sleek, flashy, and in the spotlight. They also suggest that you must have your act together, be extra-ordinarily talented, or super smart.

But that isn’t true.

You can achieve your dreams with who you are—your quirks and foibles—and all that makes you unique. You can be quiet, nerdy, and shy and still live the life of your dreams. Whoever you are right now, added to the seemingly “ordinary” raw talents you have inside, are just the right ingredients needed to achieve your goals and dreams. Then add the urgings of the Still Small Voice to the mix—and following those urgings—and your success is virtually guaranteed.

That doesn’t mean you won’t be challenged and that you won’t have to dig deep from time-to-time. It also doesn’t mean that your success will happen overnight. What it does mean is as long as you consistently take steps along the pathway to your dreams, you will achieve success.

Your homework today is to take the next step. Break it into small pieces and tiny increments, as needed, and move forward.

You can do it

Post in the comments section that you took a step today! WooHoo!

I’m so proud of you!

Your Friend,

Lauren
