Be Proactive

I love this quote from comedian/actor Jonathan Winters: “If your ship doesn’t come in, swim out to meet it.” Many times we know where we want to go next in life, but we sit passively on the shore instead of being proactive. Have I been guilty of this? Yes, and honestly some days I still am. HOWEVER, I do try my best to not only seize opportunities that come my way…but to create them as well.

Going after what you want is scary, I will admit. But who really wants to live with “what ifs” down the line? I started blogging and hosting a little over 3 years ago, and I was so scared to do it at first, but I am so glad I did. It has caused me to get even more out of my comfort zone and not only work with great brands but also form some great relationships!

Challenge: List 3 things you would like to accomplish by the end of 2016 and come up with a plan on how you can fulfill them….THEN WORK!!!
