The Sweet Spot

Knowing who you are is much more important than knowing what you want to do.

Having a deeper understanding of your values, beliefs and life principles will actually reinforce what you should be doing.

If you define what you do for money as who you are you’re life might be out of balance. I know — I’ve been there.

How much you have in your bank account should equal how high your self-worth is. Money is a resource to amplify your life mission.

Which, it’s why it’s so hard when you’re not there yet. Not having enough money or resources for your dreams doesn’t mean they aren’t important. 

Creating an extraordinary life starts with staying true to who you are and who you want to be.

Maybe you don’t know who you are either. That’s okay. That just means you have the opportunity to try on different versions of yourself you could be, and pick what resonates. 

How do you know what resonates?

When you can lose yourself to something and give it all of your attention.

When you feel ALIVE, more alive than you ever felt.

When you go to bed with a smile on your face.

That’s when you know you’ve found the sweet spot.

Stay BOLD, Keep Pursuing,
