What does SUCCESS mean to you? Take a few minutes and think about what really matters most to you. A year ago today, the tornado’s ripped through Joplin, MO leaving many homeless. The event brought a reality of what really matters. Hope and love brought the community together and the rebuilding and healing began.
My passion to coach and speak on health and wellness provides me the opportunity to help others understand THEY ARE THE BUILDER and RE-BUILDER of their lives. Although you can’t change things overnight, you can change your direction. There will always be challenges in life and some days are definitely harder than others. No one can go this journey alone. Everyone needs support. Everyone needs someone to believe in them. It starts and ends with YOU but surrounding yourself with the right team makes the journey much more enjoyable to celebrate the triumphs and conquer burdens.
Have you tried to go it alone and fell short of your goal? Does the memory of that linger in your mind keeping you from trying again? Don’t let go of your vision and dreams…life is full of opportunities for “do over’s”. Starting over more intelligently is the way I choose to look it. When someone tells me it can’t be done, I merely see that person as someone who stopped trying. So why would I follow their lead? Determination and commitment = success.

I believe many people today are dealing with burnout and frustration due to imbalance. My TCOY Wellness programs focus on total wellness which includes Head, Heart and Body. When we focus on what we HAVE verses what we don’t have, our perception and attitude change for the better. Imagine if you only had in your life tomorrow the things that you gave thanks for today. How different might your day look?
Children understand IMAGINATION. Adults too often allow the past to determine the future. Happiness is a self-made reality. TCOY!
Below is a guest post from Chris Guillebeau of ChrisGuillebeau.com.
Imagine a life where all your time is spent on the things you want to do.
Imagine giving your greatest attention to a project you create yourself, instead of working as a cog in a machine that exists to make other people rich.
Imagine handing a letter to your boss that reads, “Dear Boss, I’m writing to let you know that your services are no longer required. Thanks for everything, but I’ll be doing things my own way now.”
Imagine that today is your final day of working for anyone other than yourself. What if—very soon, not in some distant, undefined future—you prepare for work by firing up a laptop in your home office, walking into a storefront you’ve opened, phoning a client who trusts you for helpful advice, or otherwise doing what you want instead of what someone tells you to do?
All over the world, and in many different ways, thousands of people are doing exactly that. They are rewriting the rules of work, becoming their own bosses, and creating a new future.
Some of these unexpected entrepreneurs found their freedom through online communities, creating digital goods that were sold for a fair price. Others took to opening retail storefronts in actual neighborhoods—a yarn shop in Portland, a coffee bar in South Carolina.
Some were natural-born entrepreneurs, determined to go it alone from a young age. But most were ordinary people of all ages and backgrounds, who transitioned to a new career after growing disillusioned with the world of traditional work.
They all did it by pursuing two twin concepts: freedom and value.
Freedom is what we’re all looking for, and value is the way to achieve it. The magic formula of skills + usefulness is how you change the world.
When you value freedom above other things, you’ll make different choices. Your priorities will shift. You’ll have more time for your family and more time for the hobbies you enjoy.
When you focus on helping others, connecting your work to their needs, that’s when value is created.
This is what it came down to for all of these people, and that’s how it can work for you too. No special skills, not a lot of money, but the willingness to imagine.
