Only You Can

only you can be youOnly you can be all of who you are.

Only you discover, create and develop the ideal business for you.

Only you can decide to fully accept your unique blessings by bringing them to market.

Only you can love and honor yourself enough to risk being the distinct individual that you are.

Only you can pursue the activities that truly light you up.

Only you can choose to stand up against the tides of conformity and the agendas of others.

Only you can choose to create the unique contribution that you came here to create.

Only you can pursue your creative happiness until you come fully alive.

Anything less is deadening.

What would it be like for you to be admired and prosperously compensated for doing the thing that only you can do?

I can’t do it for you but it is my honor and gift to guide you. If you’d like to explore this further start here.

You Are Enough

You’re smart enough, resilient enough and creative enough to follow-through and do what you are uniquely inspired to do.

If you think anything less about yourself, you believe uninvestigated thoughts that are limiting your capacity to act.

What matters most, is what you believe, about you.

Everyone Doesn’t Have To Love You

Seth Godin shares a powerful message today that makes a great marketing point.  Everyone doesn’t have to love you in order for you to succeed.

If you need the validation and acceptance and patronage of everyone you meet, you’ll get stuck, and soon.  Seth Godin

Everyone doesn’t need to love you or even understand you.  Don’t mix up your personal needs with your business needs.  Especially for self-employed one-man and one-woman shows, we are the business.  In marketing activities like self-promotion, the line can get awful blurry.

But our personal, emotional needs are just that, they’re personal.  It’s a good move to create some separation, at least in your own mind.

Don’t take business rejection personally. The marketplace is rejecting your offer not you.

Don’t get defensive when challenged. The marketplace is challenging the value of your business concept not your personal value.

For the people you came here to serve, you are more than enough.

Proof That God Cares

Does God care about your daily work?  I’ve joined a community of bloggers, Higher Calling Blogs who say yes.  I agree.

My proof is this.  God loves and wants only the best for all. That’s why you were gifted with unique individuality.  You were meant to uniquely express for the highest good of all.

Your special makeup is not some cruel joke.  You came here specially equipped to make a difference in a way that feeds your soul and serves humanity.

Anything less and you’re not even in the game.  Quit selling yourself short.  Express who you are and the right folks will support you.
