Tenacity--you'll need this to keep going in the face of fear, loss, disappointment and setbacks. Set your sail and determine in your heart you'll do whatever it takes to be your best self.
Resilience--there will be days when even your best laid plans just don't materialize. What will you do on those days? Can you switch gears and switch feet so that you can keep moving forward towards your goals and dreams?
Authenticity--People value and trust those who are most authentic. In life and business, we gravitate to those who are genuine. Are you dreams and goals aligned or are you saying one thing and doing another?
Non-negotiable goals, dreams and vision--How badly do you want it? What are you pursuing? Are you sure of what you wanted so that you have clarity and direction that will help you realize your dreams?
Surrender what was to what can and will be--There are times when we allow what happened in the past to keep us from giving our all today. We can’t change the past; only learn from it and that’s the best way to ensure that nothing is wasted. We have learned lessons from where we have been and have gained wisdom and understanding. It’s time to let go of what was so we can fully receive what is and what will be.
Forgiveness of self and others—this is freedom and we do well to remember our own humanness and need for forgiveness from others for ways we have hurt them or let them down. When we forgive we release ourselves and others from the things that held us bound and keep us stuck.
Openness to who, what and how the journey unfolds- There will be people, circumstance and situations that will come into our lives sometimes that we have no control over. We can make choices and be open to what God has for us and willingly embrace the lessons and the gifts that each thing brings so that we don’t miss out on the growth and good that has our name on it.
Ready to grow, learn and change and do what it takes to succeed— are you ready for what lies ahead? Are you anticipating the great and wonderful ways in which you’ll be blessed and be a blessing?
Move forward and take imperfect action—don’t have every duck in a row? Not quite perfect yet? Good—that’s exactly where you need to start. Step up and take imperfect action—it’s better than taking no action at all or worse yet waiting for perfection which still equals no action since that will never happen. Strive for excellence. Learn from your mistakes. When you fall down, get back up and keep going in the direction of your goals and dreams. Soon you’ll see that you are changing and transforming, your mind and heart are shifting and you are becoming more of who you were meant to be.
