It’s the only way

Start where you are. Use what you have. Do what you can. – Arthur Ashe –

I am starting to learn this. Or should I say re-learn.

My mentor, Paul Martinelli, who by the way, if you ever have the chance to hear him speak, you do not want to miss the opportunity; says,

The content of your life is the curriculum for your education.

The content of your life is the curriculum for your education. Where you are right now, what you are faced with. What’s on your plate and how you deal with it determines if you go to the next level or not.

It’s really the way we’ve become proficient at anything and everything. We started where we were. We used what we had and did what we could and as we did that we learned and kept moving forward until we became proficient.

What are you faced with now? What opportunity is knocking at your door? What is the next step to move you closer to your goal, dream and purpose?

Yesterday marked the 30th consecutive day for me of writing for this blog. – Writing  what I hope to be relevant and interesting articles that add value to you the reader.

I know that 30 days is a small milestone. The only way I can get to 30 years of doing this is by way of going through 30 days and then 60 days and 90 and so on.

I was challenged and encouraged to write everyday and even though it was a daunting task for me, I felt it was on purpose and the next step that I should take. And so I started. In this short time I’ve struggled and messed up and tanked and rewrote and wondered what I’m going to write about. But somehow it’s come together and I’ve been inspired and I’ve received a lot more clarity and it’s been scary yet also defining as I put myself out there. And I go on and I’m getting better as I go on and moving in the direction of my purpose to inspire and guide others to discover, develop and live into their potential.

What is the next step for you? What are you considering?

Start where you are. Use what you have. Do what you can.

It’s the only way.

I believe in you!
