Before a child can walk, he or she has to crawl and EVERYONE crawls first before walking. We have been lectured on the importance of the future for so long that we have forgotten that the future is a culmination of steps taken in the NOW.
Please keep in mind that who you are in the small steps is who you’ll be at the end. If you’re miserable on your journey to success, you don’t all of a sudden become the Dalai Lama when you “make it.” There’s no automatic peace, zen, and happiness that comes over you.
I often remind myself that before a plant can bloom, a seed has to go underground. Roots have to take their place, the seed has to be nurtured with water and light; all of these steps are key to the first bloom. The beauty that we see at the end cannot exist without those steps. There is no end without a beginning.
Do you really want a solution or are you just looking for a story? Answer this one question and you’ll be able to break through the fog of constant drama.
Your Perception + your view changes everything and what you’re going through at any given time can affect your perception and your view. Find out why this is the moment you need to HOLD ON.

We’ve all been exposed to that horrible boss or co-worker who is horrible simply because he/she can be. They’re good at their job so they couch their behavior in “being honest” or making you a better person or employee. “Brilliant Jerks” are people I have zero tolerance for. They are people whose contributions are perceived as ”irreplaceable” within an organization, relationship or dynamic. So much that their toxic behavior is often deemed excusable to the detriment of those around them.
We are all human beings first before we are the many titles, positions and levels we hold on to and allow to define us in this human experience. It’s time to break the cycle and do better. It’s time to be better.
