Anyone with goals and dreams also has fears. We fear that it’s impossible, we fear what others with think, we fear that we are incapable of accomplishing. To fear is to be human. But fear should not have any control over your actions (or lack thereof). Remind yourself that the power you have to succeed is far greater than any obstacle or fear! If you need additional assistance read Pick The Brain’s tool for 7 ways to overcome your fears. http://www.pickthebrain.com/blog/overcome-fear-of-failure/
Don’t let fears inhibit your success, let success inhibit your fears!
Have an astounding Tuesday.

“In a race, there is one
step between winning and losing. In life there’s one step between
accomplishing goals and falling short.”
Accomplishing goals doesn’t have to be difficult. Think about it in a
step-by-step process. You put one foot in front of the other and that
simple move propels you forward. The same thing goes for your goals.
Break the goal down into smaller tasks and before you know it, you’re
closer to accomplishing that goal. Of course, looking at the big
picture can be daunting. But, one step isn’t difficult. Get one thing
done today and another tomorrow.
Let’s make this week a challenge! Break your goal down into smaller
steps. Then, each day this week accomplish ONE step.
“It’s about a passion that’s unyielding. I need you to know today, It is YOUR time. It is YOUR hour. It is YOUR moment. GO TAKE IT!!!” ~The Roots.
Listening to the Roots new album Undun, it becomes more clear that the hidden jewels of hip-hop are not hidden. The jewels are blatant and in your face. The jewels are in the form of beats that move you. They are the lyrics that motivate you. That push you rhythmically to go beyond your limits. To exceed in your desires to succeed. If you listened to their last album “How I Got Over” and their latest release “Undun” or practically any of the other Roots’ albums, it’s clear that this group has a unique style of their own. A style that incorporates socio-political issues, common struggles and even street knowledge. I believe all true hip-hop fans will agree, the Roots never fail to disappoint. But don’t take my word for it, listen to the album(s) yourself. In the meantime, take that quote from the song “Stomp” [track 163] and incorporate it into your day—Engrain it into your LIFE.
It is YOUR time. It is YOUR hour. It is YOUR moment. GO TAKE IT!!!!
You don’t have to be an “artist” to be creative. Your
creativity is merely an extension of your individuality. Being creative
can help you with anything from coming up with new styles to rock or
aiding your ability to conceive new ideas. Regardless of your path, you
can find value and inspiration in these 29 ways to stay creative. Have
an innovative day!! Essentially Essence.
Your choices have created your present circumstances
like a paintbrush creates an artwork. Think of each decision a brush
stroke and life as the canvas. You determine the results. Consequences
do not have to be negative. The universal paradox is that if you choose
wisely, your days will be a beautiful reflection of those choices.
Progression is extremely demanding. It
demands your time, energy, focus, and forces you to persevere through
the challenges that constantly come your way. Of course you want to
give up. Yes, you may feel like giving in. But, you have to realize that
what you are attempting to accomplish is far greater than any problems
you experience. Once you push pass the struggles, your strength reminds
you that you are unstoppable! Let NOTHING get in your way today. Today
put forth the time, energy, focus and FORCE yourself to be successful.
Over thinking can be a disease
of the thoughts. When we are in our own worlds within our minds, we can
make anything seem believable. Even things that are not true. Don’t let
your subconscious fool you. When you find yourself over thinking, take a
moment and refocus your attention to something more productive. Your
thoughts are powerful, put them to better use! Happy Friday and have a
Repeat after me:
I am ready because I let go of everything that was holding me back. I am ready because my heart & mind are open to all possibilities and potential opportunities. I am ready because I am focused on working towards my dreams every single day.
*Today is the perfect day to ready yourself for successful and empowering destiny ahead of you!*
Power is not defined by dollar signs or any
superficial gains. True power comes from within. Herein lies the steps
to being a powerful person. Today, you can have a positive effect on
every one you come in contact with! Spread positivity and have a
powerful Thursday! Essentially Essence.
There are four more months in the year 2011.There is still time to excel further. It’s all about that inner dedication to something greater. Let Nothing Stop you! Not today–not tomorrow–not Ever! Have an incredible day! Essentially Essence.
Today, lets avoid ALL forms of failure! Act as if
failure is not a work within your vocabulary by remembering your
ultimate goals are greater than any obstacle or challenge. Not easy but
worth it! Have a failure-free Friday! Essentially Essence
Regardless of whether it’s how you think or what
you’re thinking, NOTHING should hold you back. Today begins Intrinsic
Motivation week!! Intrinsic Motivation is the type of motivation that
originates within you. This motivation requires no outside force or
stimulation. Look inside and find the power to push through to your
greatest potential! Have an intrinsically motivating day! Essentially

There’s no better time than RIGHT NOW to use all your
abilities, resources, and energy to get where you want to be. Have an
outstanding day! Essentially Essence
Did you start or did you “try” to start? Did you finish or did you “try” to finish? Did you follow through on your goals and objectives or did you just “try”? Much too often we accept “trying” as a substitute for doing. We need not accept nothing less than succeeding wholly & completely. Definitive actions get serious reults so there is no room for ”tried” attempts. Today we will remove “try” from our vocabularies because We are the type of people who Do and get things DONE. Have a great day! Essentially Essence
Even the most difficult of problems have solutions. Ok
maybe it’s more like 9 times out of 10 problems have solutions. These
solutions may not be the easiest to carry out or simplest to conceive
but they are solutions nonetheless. Don’t give in or give up. Have faith
in your ability to solve the problems in your life. Essentially
It makes sense that in order to change the world, it
takes more than the mere desire. Such an immense task would surely
require altering your habits, sharpening your discipline and widening
your perspective to fit a global vision. No matter how daunting this may
seem, it is not an impossible feat. As a matter of fact thousands have
already accomplished this goal. So why not you? Yes, Everyone says ‘they
want to change the world’ very few realize first the change begins
within themselves. Have a superb Tuesday! Essentially Essence…

Inspiration is contagious! Catch it and pass it along to everyone around you! Have an extraordinary day. Essentially Essence.
A proactive approach to live is to change things from the inside-out. To be your best you’ll work on be resourceful, creative and cooperative, diligent and determined. You are smart, value driven, and capable of anything and everything. Today as you are the best you will see your day unfold as a reflection of your actions! Have a Magnificent Monday! Essentially Essence
Guns can kill but knowledge can give birth to new ideas, new life, and greater possibilities. Knowledge is primarily gained through education. This doesn’t just consist of the institutionalized education you spend thousands on. Self education is just as significant and definitely priceless. Today gain power through knowledge. Educate yourself on something that will contribute to the accomplishment of your goals! Essentially Essence.
Langston Hughes asked, what happens to a dream deferred? I had the same question today. I’ve concluded that dreams aren’t meant to be deferred. Just like a flower is meant to bloom, your dream is meant to be your reality. Today, don’t allow anything or anyone to deter or defer your dreams. Pursue them, chase them, catch them, create them. Have a Monday filled with dream fulfillment! Essentially Essence

Look no further. Wait not another second. If you were looking for the green
light, perfect conditions, the “right time”, HERE IT IS! Although it may
sound cliché, it’s is true that when you look back at your life, you’ll wish
that you had started today. So on this Friday, move forward with your
biggest goal, start the project you’ve been stalling with. Make the moves
necessary to get closer to your dreams. The sign you’ve been waiting for
lies within this very moment!!!! Essentially Essence.

The status quo says that we must win at all cost. Society suggests that in order to be considered successful you have to be on top or in front of everyone else. Just because these are popular notions of progression, it does not mean we have to personally live by them. Our aspirations should be individually based. The ultimate goal is to self-improve. If you are better than you were previously, you are truly moving in the right direction. Today, make it your mission to better than you were yesterday. Have a great day! Essentially Essence.
