HOW TO BE SUCCESSFUL AT A YOUNG AGE!
If anyone asks me how I’ve done all that I’ve done …. I’ll say- I JUST STARTED! Which is 100% the truth! I made it happen. I had the inner drive and dedication to see my dreams come to life. I have a vision glued in my mind, of selling out Madison Square Garden and doing a motivational seminar and how I would feel when they announce my name and I start walking through the curtains!! I have dreams of having my next book( currently writing my 4th) be #1 on the NY times best-selling list! I want to be interviewed by Oprah….. I HAVE TONS OF DREAMS.
What I didn’t notice until I was 16 years old, was that what I focused on always showed up in my real life. But the true reason for my success as a 23 year old motivational speaker and author, is I didn’t make any excuses or complain. I just kept going and never gave up. When I first started out, I spoke for free at every single YMCA, boys & girls club, toastmaster public speaking classes and rotary clubs. I did the 50 phone calls every day, sending 500 emails every day and made a you tube channel. It also took me two years to get my TEDx talk- in which I sent six applications every day!
All my books have been self-published. I just DID IT! I didn’t worry about other people’s opinions, the what if’s or where this would all take me. I just knew my passions at an early age and dove headfirst. My encouragement to you all is whatever your dreams are- JUST START!!!! Start with what you can do, your resources and what you can do NOW! Maybe go on a run, email a family friend, get a good night’s sleep, go to the open mic night, eat a healthy meal or record a you tube video. When you get in the habit of just starting- it becomes ingrained in you to just do it and to not worry about the rest. This habit will take you SO far in life!!! You have the same amount of time as everyone else- so why not spend it taking action and making it happen!! Just start!!! Seriously, don’t overthink it- just follow your passions and take action every day!!!
DON’T MAKE EXCUSES, JUST MAKE IT HAPPEN!!!!
YOU CAN DO ANYTHING YOU BELIEVE YOU CAN DO!!!!!
ALWAYS REMEMBER, THINK IT, FEEL IT, BELIEVE IT AND IT’S YOURS!!!!
