Playing small offers no favour to this world
Those who work hard and invest in themselves do so to stay in the world stronger and longer for the people they love, and for all those they will inspire and encourage as a result.
Playing small offers no favour to this world.
Do not quit or be guilted about self-investment.
This is your LIFE and legacy at stake and nobody has the right to throw opinionated rocks at you, nor distract you with fear-soaked ‘cotton wool’ limits.
If you’re operating from reason and integrity then you must play all out for yourself.
It’s the only way to authentically reach the platform where you can go all out for others.
The more you make of yourself the more you genuinely have to offer.
“To be successful you have to be selfish, or else you never achieve. And once you get to your highest level, then you have to be unselfish. Stay reachable. Stay in touch. Don’t isolate.”
― Michael Jordan
Great minds think alike, so rise up like Baruch, Michael and I, and countless others who have held fierce to their life, and don’t EVER allow yourself to be shamed out of creating your greatest self, your legacy.
You were born for this.

There will sometimes be worthy things that pop up and need your attention from time to time. Fakes aren’t one of them. Haters are just fake distractions hoping to become more. Breeze past that trash. You do You. You amazing, worthy, powerful light. Keep Walking.
So don’t beat yourself up when you’re going through some of the less enjoyable bits…
Life is a medley.
No matter what you do there will be easier and not so easier times.
What matters is that you back yourself.
24/7 you have your human self to care for.
Treat that being with integrity and respect.
Your self care impacts the whole world for the greater good.
It makes you a whole being who by proxy gives permission and inspiration for others to do the same.
Take care of yourself and shine on my friend
Don’t dim your power for anyone
Power shot for you my friend…
Last week I quoted Ronda while speaking to a brilliant audience (at Aaron Sansoni’s Entrepreneurs Summit) with Netflix Co-founder Mark Randolph
So to YOU my wise friend, today (or any day) should you encounter someone who wants you to shrink to please them (or to fit a so called status quo)… breathe in deep and take up all that rightful, valuable space in yourself.
Never back down on backing and investing in yourself. You were born to be you. Don’t dim your power for anyone…
Authenticity, self-respect, bravery, permission to be ALL that you are… the world not only needs that stuff like insulin…
There are also others watching you, who by proxy will learn that it’s invaluable, imperative and necessary to back who they are without shame, without shrinkage or dissolution.
Go out there and live ALL that you are…
Makes me so darn proud and overjoyed when I see someone take up space and OWN their life.
Go, you good thing, GO live out loud.
I’m cheering you fierce from the sidelines, I believe in you, make sure YOU believe in you and don’t back down…
If your light is too bright, others can be warmed and inspired by it or buy shades and sit respectfully in a back row.
Shine on my friend!
We can dream and envision great things but without our consistent effort and fortitude, they remain dreams.
Your fortitude is not in vain, it’s the vehicle to success. It will take you there but you need to drive it.
Some added ‘elbow grease to success’ support quotes for your day…
“Success is the sum of small efforts, repeated day in and day out.”
“Persistence is to the character of man as carbon is to steel.”
“For changes to be of any true value, they’ve got to be lasting and consistent.”
“The secret of success is consistency of purpose.”
“I’ve learned from experience that if you work harder at it, and apply more energy and time to it, and more consistency, you get a better result. It comes from the work.”
