Relax and take a deep breath. Consider, " What is it that motivates your decision process?” For me, it’s my family and the legacy that I want to leave. It is not money or power but it is the ability to dream. You must make time in your life to decide what is important. Preparation, planning, and execution are my mantras. It seems like we move through life without ever acknowledging how far we have come, although sometimes I look in the mirror and tell myself, "Girl, relax, you are doing too much." I have to laugh since I believe we often take things for granted.
I can honestly say that the vision and goals I have for myself are really big and can also be challenging and exhausting at times. However, Ellen Johnson Sirleaf once said, “If your dreams don’t scare you, they are not big enough.” To put it simply, I don't have to exhaust myself by trying to race through life so I can become a homeowner, a millionaire, or a success.
Prepare for any roadblocks that may come your way not just for what you plan but also all the roadblocks in the way. When it's time to execute, do not apologize for it. Live your life at the pace you set for yourself.
