  1. Great motivation to start the day! I always go back to that HDT quote too…My biggest obstacle is procrastination…still working on that…

  2. Thanks so much for this inspiring post. I especially like your line: “A person’s own mind is often the biggest obstacle they have to conquer in order to be successful.” It is so true. What a great reminder!

  3. I am very passionate about this subject of life purpose. May I suggest to you and all of your readers a fabulous book that will guide you to the answers within, “The Instruction: Living the Life Your Soul Intended” by Ainslie Macleod.
    What I have found along my ambitious journey is there is nothing to prove. Where I am is perfect and I need not prove anything. It’s all about learning and self growth. Also it about letting go expectation. Let Go & have FUN! xo Mish

  4. This is such an inspirational post, and it really gives me a lot to think about. There are certain things that I am very passionate about and want to pursue, but as you say doubt can get in the way, and it can make you prolong pursuing your goals and dreams. I think the first step is to clearly acknowledge the doubt, and then move forward. Thank you for the inspiration. Beautifully written. xo

  5. This is so wonderfully uplifting and positive – I wish more people would think this way. Then again, I suppose that’s the purpose of this post isn’t it? To awaken a sense of worth and urgency in people to seize their full potential. “It’s a Wonderful Life” indeed.

    P.S. You had mentioned “when you get a button, I’d love to swap” – I apologize sincerely for absent mindedness. I have no idea what you meant! Oh dear…

  6. I love this series because so many people are just focused on surviving day to day, and often forget what they are passionate about in the pursuit of paying bills, etc.

    I think having a mantra or self-affirming phrases around you is key. A lot of entrepreneurs and those that work alone (especially to start) don’t have anyone to encourage them on a regular basis. We have to be our own encouragement. 🙂

    There are so many quotes and scriptures that I really love. One of my absolute favorites has always been this:

    “I can do ALL things in Christ who gives me strength.” ~Phillipians 4:13

    I love it because the world ALL stand out to me, and sometimes we have to realize that we can’t do everything in our own strength. When we are weak, He is strong.

    Also, I have a framed art card on my desk that reads: The World is Your Oyster. We’ve heard it so many times,it really is true, but only if we BELIEVE it to be.
