Happy Holidays one and all! ‘Tis the season for presenting your product to those that are looking for one like yours. So, here are some thoughts to help you prepare for this occasion:

Successful people know that they are responsible for their life, no matter their starting point, weaknesses, and past failures. Realizing that you are responsible for what happens next in your life is both frightening and exciting. That includes practicing mindfully, seeking out professionals that can help you with coaching a role, and learning the nuances of the character, seeking out opportunities to sell your product, etc. Unless you want to stay stuck where you are forever and blame others for lost opportunities, you are the only one who can make your dreams and goals come true.

Sure, there will be a lot of sacrifices and mistakes, but there will be fewer excuses and back peddling. You hopefully will continue to learn from your mistakes and failures. That’s what they are there for. There is a pony in that pile somewhere and it’s your job to find it and move on. And when you do, that becomes the only way you can become successful, because excuses limit and prevent us from growing personally and professionally. I say, own your life so no one else will. Stand up and get busy making your dreams and goals into reality. Avanti! Carol Kirkpatrick
