Growing up there were a lot of things that I wanted to do. Be a movie star. Be a lawyer. Be a FBI Agent. Be in the WNBA. A series of actions took me from being ambitious to not really knowing what was left or right. Since high school I’ve dabbled in everything. Literally. I was in retail. A student. A janitor. In insurance. A legal assistant. A student again. A business owner. A customer service rep. Student once more. Again a business owner…well you get the picture. I kept looking for something that felt right.
No matter what I decided to do in my life I always had my “muse” cheering me on, wanting me to win and succeed. Everything I couldn’t do I found that I could because of him. It isn’t easy going through life just not knowing. Being alone and kind of wandering. However, the wandering gets so much easier when you have a muse, a person that will inspire you to do the things that you never dreamt possible.
Feeling down and out? Feeling like you’ve tried everything possible and you’re ready to give up? Well, find that supportive friend or confidant that will push you to be all that you can be. Find your cheerleading squad. Life doesn’t become perfect with someone cheering you on, but speaking from ten years of experience, life becomes worth it when someone cheers on your side.
Winston Churchill said, “Success is the ability to go from one failure to another with no loss of enthusiasm.” Trying so many things in my life has taught me that no matter how many failures I’ve gathered, and I’ve seriously got baskets full of failure, my continued success comes from the fact that I continue to be excited and believe in myself because someone believes in me.
Find your success cheerleader. Heck, if you’re having trouble finding one, I’m here.

Interesting… Life is interesting, isn’t it. I have found never giving up is one thing, but in my life, I had to learn to let go. And when you never give up, you never stop fighting, letting go is the hardest thing to do. But letting go, did not mean I did not give a last chance. I have no regrets. But I giving the last chance, and ensure your self worth is not compromised, well thats difficult.

I agree. The hardest thing for me is to let go. I care too deeply and am too loyal that I often hold on when it is more beneficial to my psyche to just release it. I’m certain one day we all learn to do it.
