Find Your Passion and Run With It…

Thinking Against Self…

StopThere is absolutely no way you will have long-term, substantial, positive outcomes when you think negatively.

Today’s post is all about that one statement.

Before I was able to begin my journey as Author Christin Webb, I unknowingly thought against myself. What’s thinking against yourself? I call it creating poor or undesired outcomes for self all because of the thoughts that are embedded within are not nurturing for goodness to happen. I often defeated myself from becoming an author before I even took the necessary steps. I assumed it couldn’t happen. I was convinced it wouldn’t happen. I questioned my ability to truly become Author Christin Webb. I kept myself from my passion; my goals. I laugh about it today because now that I have accomplished that passionate goal, I realize I just needed to feed myself with nothing but good thoughts to make it happen. I had to accept and act on the idea that my passion; my purpose was greater than any negative possibility; any perceived limitation.

Everyone has a purpose. That purpose was created to be lived out. However, you have to nurture that purpose. You have to feed it positivity. That purpose won’t ever be maximized if you don’t constantly, consistently, and persistently speak and act positive energy into it. Consider your thoughts about your purpose to be a long paved road you travel. That road has some speed bumps here and there. When you get to the speed bumps, the sidewalks and opposite traffic don’t afford you the choice to go around. You have no other option but to go over the speed bumps; that’s if you want to keep going down the road. You may decide that the speed bumps are too hard of a challenge to overcome. Maybe you feel they are too annoying to keep going up and down over just to get to the other side. You may even question why the heck they even exist. The point will still remain, however that if you don’t go over the speed bump, each and every one of them; if you don’t change your mind about how you will address each one; you’ll just remain stuck in a place that is stagnant. Your purpose will never expand. Your purpose may never grow.

Stop being self-defeating. Stop creating speed bumps for your life. Figure out ways to move forward by positive thought. A quote I want to leave with you today is one my father always shared with me, “If you can’t change your situation, change your mind about it.” Realize that your purpose is greater than any negative possibility; any perceived limitation.

Don’t Be Selfish…

Selfish
Daily on my Facebook fan page, Author Christin Webb, I post inspirational status’ about life and living your passion. I usually title the post, “Today’s Thought For Life” or “Passion Living”. In today’s post, I was compelled to mention the importance of sharing your gifts and talents.

“Today’s Thought For Life: Your life, your talents, your gifts were meant to be shared with others. Just imagine if everyone used their inherited blessings with others how much more meaningful and purposeful our lives could be. Share yourself today! Be something for someone else.”

I am so amazed at the fact that each and every person that breathes life has a purpose, a gift, a talents, something to share with others. God did His thing when he created each person. There was specific purpose birth in everyone. It only seems right that the purpose be shared with others. It only makes sense that the purpose be used to positively impact the lives of others. What is your passion? What is your purpose? It’s fulfilling to live your passion out loud, but even more fulfilling when living it out loud includes influencing others lives. Share your passion with others. Imagine if everyone fed off of each others’ passions. Imagine if the world revolved around the positive influence of others that we interact with, follow, aspire to be every day. Would everyone be stronger? Wiser? More in tune with themselves and one another? More open?

Today I challenge you to begin sharing your passion or passions with someone else. Maybe there is a neighborhood kid that could benefit from knowing about your passion. Could there be a coworker that needs to be inspired by your passion; a friend, or even family member? Start today! You may just be surprised how the act can catch on and you’ll find yourself being inspired and motivated by others to continue your passion or find a new one altogether!

And of course: BE INSPIRED AND LIVE YOUR PASSION OUT LOUD!

The Blame Game

pionting fingerIt’s so easy to say it’s someone or something that is keeping you from following your passion. The real and undeniable truth is that YOU are the only person that keeps you from following your passion. It is so that some circumstances may delay your ability or cause you to maneuver a new plan to follow your passion, but the circumstances don’t have to take away your potential in following your passion(s) altogether. At the end of the day, blaming a person, thing, or situation is merely an excuse for why you have not followed your passion.

Take a friend of mine, I will call him Richard. Richard played football in high school and it was hands down one of his greatest passions. He had dreams of moving on to higher levels of playing the sport, but in his senior year, his life took a turn. He was injured during a football game and it left him unable to play the sport from that point forward. I haven’t known him as long as his journey to recovering and rebuilding has taken place, but since I’ve gotten to know him he has clearly allowed me to see that excuses and the blame game are for the weak-minded only. Since his injury, he hasn’t played football again, but he has maneuvered his passion by speaking with other aspiring football players and even coaching football. He could have easily blamed his injury for the reason he couldn’t follow his passion. He could have come up with excuses and gave up, but he never allowed his circumstances to keep him from following his passion. He is a prime example of moving forward regardless of what looks like should be your hold up.

What you did yesterday or what you do today; how you respond to your circumstances determines your future. If you truly want to live your passion out loud then make your excuses a thing of the past. Tell your excuses goodbye. Never allow your lips to blame another person or thing for why you haven’t been able to follow your passion. Maybe now isn’t the time because of your circumstances, but it doesn’t mean tomorrow isn’t the day it will all come together.

Stay positive, stay focused, and as always, continue LIVING YOUR PASSION OUT LOUD!

Be a D.R.E.A.M.E.R.

DreamsAs the half way mark of 2013 hits, I found it important that I revisit the goals that I established for myself. Some of those goals rolled over from 2012 and others were created specifically for this year. Some of my goals I hadn’t even set, but I stumbled upon them from following other defined goals. I often state that your goals are bi-products of your dreams. My goals are birth from my dreams. The thoughts that exist in my head that make me smile, that give me a strong desire to be happy and fulfilled. To have a real grasp on your goals you have to be a DREAMER. You have to believe in yourself. You have to see the future as bright and full of possibilities. To be a dreamer is ongoing and never-ending. Being a dreamer creates avenues for positive outcomes and happiness. Today I wanted to share what I felt being a D.R.E.A.M.E.R. meant. Check it out. And as always comment to share your thoughts on being a D.R.E.A.M.E.R.

D – Be DETERMINED to achieve the things you set out to do regardless of the
challenges that may be present. You must be persistent, relentless, and consistent in following your dreams.

R – REALISTICALLY define what your dreams in life are. Know that there are some
pros and cons to most anything and determine what you’re willing to work hard for.

E – EXPECT the unexpected. Unfortunately, you’re more than likely NOT a psychic, but you can be best prepared for anything. Be ready for the unknown. Take each unexpected situation with stride. Accept them, plan on how to handle each and move forward.

A – ALWAYS hold on to your dreams. Even with all the unexpected things that occur in life, it is your responsibility to self to focus on your dreams. Never let anyone or anything keep you too far off track from following your dreams.

M – MEDITATE and constantly plan for your dreams. Constantly reflect and work towards being as insightful about your dreams as possible.

E – ENTERTAIN any opportunity that could open more doors for your dreams. Sometimes we let good things pass us by because we weren’t in tune with ourselves or we were skeptical of how things would turn out. Assess any opportunity that presents itself. Don’t turn your back on it because you’re not as familiar with it.

R – REMEMBER you are nothing without your dreams. You are not complete without your goals and things that define your happiness.
