Sitting in a Dominican hair salon – voices chattering, blow dryers whirring, and my own ears bombarded with the sound of my hair dryer, I inhaled a deep breathe as I read this quote:
“As long as there is breath, there is room to rise.”
It hit me like a ton of bricks.
A lot of people ask me about how to reach and attain fulfillment, and here’s the absolute truth: fulfillment is derived from being in motion towards your highest potential. Fulfillment is not a destination.
When we understand this, our entire relationship to goals and accomplishments changes. I personally like to think of goals more as benchmarks, little signals that let me know whether I’m moving in the right direction. This, in turn, actually makes it easier to accomplish goals because it takes the pressure off of having to be perfect in every endeavor.
I sincerely believe that no matter where you are in your life, there’s always room to grow. Always. There’s a next level waiting for you, and you are beyond capable of achieving it.
So today, I want you to reflect on this:
What is your next level? If you’re in motion towards it, what are you currently doing? If not, what’s holding you back?
Leave your answers in the comments below – I read every response and sincerely look forward to connecting with you.
To your inevitable success,
