We all have dreams for the future – goals we want to achieve – whether it’s in our personal lives or careers.

I’ve always felt that if you really want something you’ll find a way – if you don’t – then you’ll find an excuse.

Think about it.

Why is it that some of us are successful while others aren’t?

Commitment and dedication.

Let’s say you want to loose 10 pounds. What do you have to do? It’s common sense. Eat a balanced diet and exercise.

We all have busy lives – family, work but if you’re really serious about losing weight, you’ll find the time to go to the gym. It’s not easy. But if you stick to it – you’ll be successful.

In our industry there are so many opportunities outside from behind the chair. But they’ll never just fall into your lap.


It means taking courses, promoting your work on social media, networking, taking the time to perfect techniques and stepping outside your comfort zone to test your skill level. This takes time, effort and sacrifice.

Good things in life never come easy or at least not for most people. It might not be fair but that’s reality.

But if you really want something – if you go to sleep at night or wake up thinking about it – isn’t all the effort worth it?


It comes down to one simple thing. How bad do you want it?


You only get one life.

Live it.
