Sometimes You Have to be Like Nike and Just Do It!

Sometimes you have to “Just Do it”. Action is a daunting idea when it comes to stepping out of your comfort zone, engaging your passion, vision, and destiny.  We allow fear to paralyze us and keep us from moving, and justify it by saying “I’m just going to wait on the [right moment, Divine Providence, Lord, the Universe, perfect plan…]”.  The problem is that we do nothing in the meantime and we have just given up our ownership of the process! Jane loved what she did.  She was able to be as free and creative as she wanted to be, … Continue reading Sometimes You Have to be Like Nike and Just Do It!

Real simple – 1) the backfield is ALWAYS in motion, sometimes for your … Continue reading Beware the Ides of March
