Pursue Your Greatness!

Never underestimate the power of dreams and the influence of the human spirit. We are all the same in this notion: The potential for greatness lives within each of us.

In 2021, I am going to help you Pursue Your Greatness!

When I began doing these Daily Crumbs, I wasn’t exactly sure where I was headed, but I made a commitment to do them daily for one year and see what would evolve.

There is nothing scarier than hitting the “publish” button each day, creating something that I sincerely desired to make a difference in people’s lives but not always knowing if it is effective. 

Your feedback and support have given me the courage to keep writing and to keep sending. 

I just crossed the 1 -month mark. I look back on over the first 31 posts and smile, laugh, cry and cringe! Through trial and error, hit or miss, I see the necessity for another evolution. While I am still working on what that looks like, the overwhelming feedback points me in the direction to focus on… 

Life and Purpose. 

We all have unique experiences and situations, but what are the commonalities? We all need inspiration and guidance to live our lives in a way that is authentic and brings enjoyment and fulfillment. 

I have not figured it all out and I do not have all the answers, but one of my gifts is helping people to get on track, and to unleash their highest potential. That is my focus for the upcoming series…Helping you Pursue Your Greatness. 

This is the first month of 2021. How are you going to make this New Day different than all the others? Can I make a suggestion? 

Move the Needle!

I just looked at my list of goals for the year, and then the steps that I had to get done to accomplish them. I also looked at my “daily life” calendar at all the things that would pull me away from doing the steps related to my goals. I must admit, I had a bit of overwhelm as I could see that my renewed commitment to Pursue My Greatness was about to be challenged immediately by my day-to-day life. 

Can you relate? 

I want to challenge you to Move the Needle. Even if just a little bit. Over time, the compound effect of your efforts will allow you to look back and see the thing as DONE! 

It reminds me of Andy Dufresne in one of my favorite movies, Shawshank Redemption. He dug a tunnel from his prison cell to freedom. Each day he removed a few bits of stone and rock from his cell, put the debris in his pocket, and emptied it in the prison yard. It took him twenty years to dig his way to the life he was dreaming about! 

Brandon, I do not want to wait that long. Then what are you waiting for? Do something, anything, today, toward your purpose. You will build momentum, see progress and feel satisfaction that you are moving the needle.

Again, thank you for allowing me the awesome privilege to be a part of your life and success. I dare you to dream BIG dreams, see an awesome vision for your life, and to have the audacity and courage to Pursue Your Greatness.
