Quitting is not an option

There’s a reason I choose not  to quit and it isn’t what you think. It’s not just because I strive for success. It’s not because of what’s on my vision board. It’s not because of money. It’s not because I have huge dreams that I am working towards every day. …

Quitting is not an option

Never-give-up-on-your-dream

There’s a reason I choose not  to quit and it isn’t what you think.

It’s not just because I strive for success.

It’s not because of what’s on my vision board.

It’s not because of money.

It’s not because I have huge dreams that I am working towards every day.

It’s definitely not because of something a guru told me.

It’s not just because I believe that perseverance and hard work will pay off if we stick to our guns and keep going even when the going gets tough and it’s not just because I believe that each time I fall and get up I am stronger, wiser and closer to my goal.

… although these are all powerful motivators and certainly strong reasons as to why not to quit.

My reason, however… my #1 reason for not quitting is because of a huge responsibility I was given 20 years ago when I became a mom.  I now am a proud mother of 4 children with desires, dreams ….as well as fears and doubts.

What do we teach our children when we quit? By quitting, I am teaching my kids to do the same. By letting tough times and obstacles get in the way of my dreams, I am teaching them that when it gets rough, or boring or unpleasant… well maybe we should throw in the towel. 

 I have been given a responsibility to lead by example. We can talk to kids about commitment and responsibility until we are blue in the face but when we show them that anything is possible and when we keep going through ice storms, financial crisis, illness … I believe that we are empowering them and teaching them to be victors, not victims of circumstance.  

Quitting is not an option. Let’s empower and inspire the next generation to dream, lead, change the world,  embrace life … even when things get a little rough.

To your success,

The Positive and Negative Aspects of Social Networking Sites on Your Business

SM 2

Social Networking Sites have indeed taken personal communication, commerce and internet connectivity into soaring levels and also taken business promotional activities by storm. What was once envisaged as social community gathering platforms between friends, school/college mates or business associates meant to meet, chat and exchange notes has now evolved into several billion dollars-worth business industry, that, figuratively speaking, buys and sells anything from pins to supercomputers.

Facebook alone now boasts of over 250 million users, and others like Twitter, LinkedIn, Pinterest, MySpace, Flixster and others are not left too far behind in terms of users and guests who use these social networking sites. People scout these sites, whether to explore or seek placements for jobs or executive talents, buy or sell goods, products or services, or just for sheer pleasure of  being part of the “in” thing for business, entertainment or both.

Live life on your terms

This post is inspired by my dear friend, Doina Oncel (owner of this blog) and a Facebook post of hers that caught my eye. (If you aren’t following her on Facebook yet, make sure you do as she has a lot of wise and valuable things to say. You can follow her here)

 

The thought she inspired me to write about is complacency. We are often brought up a certain way, to go to school, get a job, work and live a certain life . While there is nothing wrong with living this ‘normal’ life I believe and encourage you to live life on your terms and not within someone else’s view of normal. 

 

Those of you who follow me know that I often write and speak about outrageous goals and living a life beyond mediocrity however this credo is often misunderstood.
