I want you to know I am taking my New Year’s resolution quite seriously. I do plan to hold myself accountable to have more COURAGE this year…take a few risks…step out of my comfort zone. I have a secret list of ideas for making COURAGE a reality.
So, when comedian Steve Harvey appeared on ABC’s THE CHEW over my holiday break to discuss roads and roadblocks to success, I listened closely. He has written a new book, ACT LIKE A SUCCESS, THINK LIKE A SUCCESS. It is not a typical comedian’s script but what he learned while sleeping on the streets as a homeless adult to now being one of the top entertainers in the country who is paid very well for all of his endeavors.
Believe me, I do not desire to be an award winning television star…I wouldn’t turn it down…but that is not my goal. But, as an over 60 woman, I want to grab every remaining opportunity and experience life to it’s fullest. I wanted to see if I could learn from his book. And I have.
Harvey writes, “I have seen too many smart, talented, gifted people stay in the same vehicle too long. If you notice you are working hard and smart, connected to a vehicle and clear on your vision, but every day you seem to move less and less, it’s time to upgrade. It’s time to take another class, join a new organization, or start a new business. Look, if you are committed to your gift, and you are growing and perfecting it, you will know when your gift is becoming too much for the vehicle.”
I have been pondering that one for at least the last week. His book gives homework to think through the principles. He also writes…NO EXCUSES. So, I really need to stop listening to those little voices which say YOU ARE TOO OLD TO GO FORWARD.
