Begin to make a list of your dreams and thoughts. This is not a wish list or pipe dreams, but a list of the things you desire to see an increase in by setting goals and positioning yourself so that opportunities are not missed. I heard someone say to me one time that they had an opportunity come into their life through something they had invented. Then, somebody told them there was no market for it and it had already been done by someone else. Needless to say, they got very discouraged. I said to them, “You know, if you’re going to believe in yourself, then you have to stay away from people who are always going to be telling you why you can’t do something.” My advice to all of you who desire to see increase in your life is to find people who celebrate you, not just tolerate you. Find people that encourage you and build you up.
If you find yourself having a hard time finding the kind of people who celebrate you, perhaps you need to turn loose of some of the negative people and make a decision. Think of things that you have a passion about. See every idea, thought, concept, course, whatever it is, as an opportunity and go with it.
