“Be fearless in the pursuit of what sets your soul on fire!”
How do I pursue my dreams?
Anyone who’s been reading my blogs all these years, know I often write about; pursuing your dreams, how to be amazing, how to have a happy day, how to make a great first impression, how to have amazing self-confidence, and today, How Do I Pursue My Dreams?
That all comes from my personal passion for Personal Development.👈👈👈
I’m one of those people, that if you get me started in this particular conversation, I don’t stop talking about it. #truth
That’s how passionate I am about it.🤗🤗🤗
And the funny thing, I’ve been on this quest for years without even realizing it.🤷♀️🤷♀️🤷♀️
Turns out I’ve been on this quest all through years in the corporate world.
I was always clipping out quotes, little tid-bits of inspiration, greeting cards, you name it.
And then I would glue them in my Franklin Planner👇👇👇
It wasn’t until I starting thinking what is my business going to be about, and without hesitation, I knew it had to have something to do with Personal Development.☝☝☝
So many people are working everyday to be the highest version of themselves and pursue their dreams. 🙌🙌🙌
And, those are the random people that The Universe always put in my path, seriously!
That said, I wanted to share this nugget of goodness with you today, I don’t know about you, but it speaks volumes to me:
“A lot of people will try to talk you out of pursuing your dream. The world has too many people who are happy to discuss WHY something might not work out, and too few who will cheer you on and say, ‘I’m there for you.’ The more time you spend navel gazing, the longer you give those negative gravitational forces to keep you in their tether…If there is something out there that you want to do…don’t focus on the obstacles.
Don’t ask for permission.
Just dive in!”

Lesson #1 on entrepreneurship, STOP asking for permission to be successful!
Because trust me, you will rarely receive it👈👈👈
When I first started my blog, I thought it would be a nice idea to share my blogs with my family and friends first before publishing them, you know, to get their thoughts☹☹☹
They went through my blogs with a fine-toothed comb.
Things from like HOW I should format it🤷♀️🤷♀️🤷♀️
What font I was using🤷♀️🤷♀️🤷♀️
To the meaning of the blog🤷♀️🤷♀️🤷♀️
All of a sudden it hit me like a ton of breaks.🏃♀️🏃♀️🏃♀️
That was the absolutely LAST time I would share my blogs with them before I published them. I wasn’t going to be asking anyone’s advice on my blogs ever again!
And, if I do need anyone’s advice on something, I go to people who are in my extremely small circle.🙋♀️🙋♀️🙋♀️
But, I DO NOT solicit anyone’s opinion anymore☝☝☝
So remember this: If you want to be great, stop asking for permission!🖐🖐🖐
I consider every single day to be the single most important day in the history of forever, Patricia. So far.
You, too?! The Universe
OMG, Patricia!! Do you know what today is…??? Right! The single most important day, EVER… so far!
While you are on the path of pursuing your dreams, there may be some people trying to talk you out of it.https://www.ninefrogs.com/what-would-you-do-if-you-were-not-afraid-1-3-2020/
Oh, they mean well.😁😁😁
They’ll say they don’t want to see you get hurt.
Like I said, they mean well.🙏🙏🙏
Don’t let them stop you.👈👈👈
Keep pursuing those dreams of yours like a duck on water🏃♀️🏃♀️🏃♀️
Just do it!
That’s a wrap!
Patricia <3 always
