Tim Price Bloggin' For Rico Reeds- watch what happens!

Do you ever find yourself avoiding being positive(optimistic) about something until you are positive(confident and fully assured) about it? The other problem with this sort of approach is that it cuts us off from the vital “spice of life” called variety. Life very rarely unfolds in straight lines. I’m willing to bet that if you look back on your life, some of your best experiences happened by “accident”, or maybe you now look back and see them as “coincidences”. There are many people who always need to be fully assured about the success of the outcome before they make a move. To them, it would be irresponsible or even foolish to make decisions and take actions based on a sense of raw optimism. After all, what sort of plan is that for success? Take these steps- and watch what happens! Challenge Yourself... Stand On Your Own Feet.... Live The Moment... Have Respect... Do Some Good.... BUT IN MUSIC...Fear and many times that fear holds a person back. It's to your advantage to get past this. Now! Sometimes this fear manifests itself in unproductive ways, such as procrastination. You find that you’re not following your map or making any progress towards your goals. If you "can’t get motivated," fear is probably at the root of your procrastination. In most cases where you find fear is causing inaction, the “cure” is taking action. You see, usually you feel so overwhelmed that you don’t even know where to start. But if you can just get started somewhere – anywhere – you’ll find that your fears start to melt away. Soon you’ll be able to take more focused, productive action. It sounds circular, doesn’t it? Fear is causing inaction, but the solution is to take action. How can that be? That means that in order to use action to cure fear, you need to let go of one major fear: specifically, the fear of taking the wrong action. Once you do that – once you give yourself permission to move forward even if things don't seem quite right – you’ll be able to progress faster on your goals and make those positive changes. Another way to stay motivated is to surround yourself with supportive people and accountability partners. Sometimes fear manifests itself as imagined productivity. For example, you may be taking a lot of actions but going absolutely nowhere. However, keep in mind what we discussed earlier with regards to choosing toxic friends and partners. Ensure that they truly are supportive. Note: Once in a while some of your own friends and family won’t believe in your dreams. If you talk about your goals, they’ll laugh and make it clear they think you’re foolish. If this happens to you – and if it’s someone that you need to see on a regular basis – then don’t talk about your dreams any more with this person. If they try to “bait” you or ask you to talk about your goals, answer politely but don’t give them any “ammunition” to fire back at you. Think on your own feet as I said before! This is just the beginning for you. Chances are, you feel energized and ready to take on anything. Your next step is to move now. If you wait, I promise you won't do "it." Imagine yourself accomplishing it. How will you feel? Why is this goal so important to you? Imagine people congratulating you. Think of the future, not the past. Once you’ve done that, create your road map. How will you reach your goal? What tangible steps will you take to get there? Next it’s time to observe and listen. How do you feel as you start working on your road map? Finally, find supportive people and reward yourself. And remember this: once you begin and continue, you deserve it! YOUR ASSIGNMENT IS...Surround yourself with like minds. People who have goals and visions. Get started and remember to have fun! Till next week- stay on your path and stay positive! ~ Tim Price
