Follow Fear and Find Your Purpose In Life.
I subscribe to the brilliant blog posts of Mr. Seth Godin, instigator of doing work that matters in the world. His books focus on pushing you to do work and “ship” as he calls it. As an entrepreneur and visionary I often find myself faced with multiple projects with equal opportunity for growth. Doing multiple projects well is nearly, if not totally, impossible, so I decided to ask Mr. Godin what he does in this situation.
“When in doubt, look for the fear.”
This reminds me of the wisdom from Marriane Williamson when she said, “Our deepest fear is not that we are inadequate. Our deepest fear is that we are powerful beyond measure. It is our light, not our darkness, that frightens us most.”
Don’t minimize fear, embrace it, and welcome it as your north star for finding purpose in your life. The challenge is now clear: instead of running from fear, do you have the courage to embrace it?

3 Investments To Make Right Now For a Better Life
1. Invest In Love
Love is a renewable resource. In fact the more love you cultivate in your life the more love you will find in the world. Invest in love today by committing right here, right now, to loving yourself and your future will be filled with love.
2. Invest In Time
Time is a scare resource with only so many seconds in a minute, minutes in an hour, and hours in a day. Every minute you are either doing something on purpose or off purpose. Map out your ideal day when you wake up and revisit it before going to bed. Over the course of a week or two your wasted time will start to be filled with those activities that are most meaningful to you.
3. Invest In Health
Our body is a temple. When we take care of it, nourish it, and rest well, it performs the way it should, no coffee, no energy drinks, and no sleeping pills needed. Instead of trying to get more things finished with less sleep, get more things finished with a full night’s sleep.

Beauty Lies Within You
“I want to search deep within me and appreciate my virtues.
If someone feeds them to me then it won’t be the same.
It will be someone else’s opinion of me and I already have plenty of people telling me good things about myself.
My insecurities don’t come from others not telling me positive things, they come from my own mind antagonizing myself.” – GPM
Love of self comes from within.
We are all fertile souls to allow beauty to grow when we look within.
