I refuse to settle because to settle is to wait at a perpetual red light on the road to where you need to be.
While preparing to lead a workshop on inspiration last summer, I discovered those twenty-eight words from the Declaration of Independence to help me explain why New Year’s resolutions don’t stick. Our Founding Fathers observed that it is human nature to settle.
Think Jefferson and the crew were right?
Have you ever been “more disposed to suffer” rather than “abolishing the forms to which you are accustomed?” Do you know what you want but then struggle to bring it into your life?
Friends, life is too short to settle. There will come a day when you no longer have the time to do the things you want to do. This is a fact for all of us.
And your life is too important to be less than it is capable of being.
In fact, I believe the highest purpose we have as human beings is to become all we are capable of becoming with the gifts we are given – so that we are able to give to others, lift them, and help them become all they are capable of becoming with the gifts they are given.
And, speaking of giving, I have something for you. A little New Year’s gift that fits right in your pocket – explaining why we settle and how to stop, so we may begin.
The gift reacquaints us with the magic of our youth. It teaches us three questions that invoke three powers that help us conquer the negativity holding our lives in place.
And the mini-but-mighty gift presents power boosters to create the life of our dreams.
That’s what I want for you. To live the life you’ve always dreamed of.
So, let’s celebrate. It’s a New Year. No more settling, and lots and lots of doing. Come walk the path along with me, for your best is yet to be.
Wishing you all the Happy you can imagine and more…
