Life is all about elevation. The pursuit of higher standards. Yet, it takes more than a mere desire to change our situation. It requires us to raise the bar of our standards and those around us. Without a commitment on our part to push harder, then we will always revert back to a situation in which we're not living out our full potential. So challenge yourself to do more than what you've done in the past. Be greater, worker smarter, and show yourself and your family what it means to be powerful.
Even if you feel that you have nothing to be proud of, you have breath and because of that, you have the ability to change your circumstances through choice. This week, take time to reflect over the things that you want, think about the things that you have, and try to find ways to appreciate your circumstances.
For better or for worse, today is a special day for America. A candidate has been selected to take over the presidency of the United States of America. What does this mean for you? That depends on what you want it to mean. Today Shannaan talks about the personal ramifications of placing all of your hopes in an elected official and why we as people should be more diligent in our personal lives so that we can properly direct our political lives.
There comes a time and place when we must make a decision to continue on as we have in the past or to change our path and blaze a new trail. Yet, there will occasionally be those who refuse to see the trails that we see and they will only highlight the past in an attempt to force us to stay where we have always been. Today Shannaan further discusses the idea of staying in one's lane and what that actually looks like and whether or not that is a good idea.
Plan A should be the only plan we have. Having anything else will just allow us to make excuses and distract us from our overall goal. We must set a goal, make a plan and pursue it with all of our might. To be worried about a back up plan will just be a waste of time because to be worried about a back up plan means we're worried about failing.
Everyday, there are a multitude of choices that we must make. Sometimes our decisions benefit us, other times, they set us back. Yet we must acknowledge that the power to decide is one of our greatest assets and how we use that power can ultimately determine the quality of our life. Shannaan discusses what it takes to make great decisions and how you can take the reigns and create a great life.
