Dare to Live without Limits

Focus on your life and where you want to go

        When your efforts are concentrated and directed toward where you want to go, you are focused on your life. Focus boosts your productivity. It enables you to accomplish things which initially appear out of reach.

        It’s easy to lose focus by becoming caught up with what other people are doing. We do this with people we know, as well as those in the public eye. The lives of other people are the subject of gossip columns, editorials, news stories, magazines, and TV shows.

Create more instead of getting by with less

        Cutting back on how much money is spent is a typical strategy for dealing with challenging financial circumstances. Reducing spending to accommodate your current income, is more common than earning more to accommodate your dreams.

        Although it is appropriate to take steps to ensure you are not outspending your financial resources, it’s not the only strategy. There’s no reason you can’t also simultaneously endeavor to boost your income.

What you say matters, so choose your words carefully

        Words matter. Words relay your thoughts, desires, emotions, and plans. Words, once spoken, can’t be recalled. Words transmitted electronically through email, text, voicemail, or social media, are permanent and public.

        Yet, too many people speak without first thinking. They mistakenly view their words as temporary. These people think that whatever they are currently saying replaces whatever they have said previously.
