I found this quote by Abraham Lincoln the other day and it struck me like a lightening bolt… YES!  That’s good stuff!  I simply had to share it…

Words to Live By - Abraham LIncoln - April2014I have DEFINITELY been (and continue to be) guilty of wanting things to happen faster than they are.  I want to build my business faster, lose weight faster, certainly clean my bathroom faster (that’s just no fun!)  …

The real point of life, weight, love and yes, business isn’t the speed, but the direction.

Are you moving FORWARD.  Are you taking action every day that is moving you in the direction of your goals, regardless of the speed?  Some things simply take more time than others.  You might be able to speed one thing up but will it be at the detriment of something else?  For example, if you work 20 hours a day to fast-track your art business, you will likely get sick from lack of sleep and have problems in your relationships from ignoring everyone around you.

Today I invite you to make a list of the the things you want.  Acknowledge what you have done to get you from the first idea of wanting it to where you are now.  Then commit to taking more steps – however fast or slow – to keep moving in the right direction.

Here’s to your creative success!
