Earlier this morning I was on Facebook and Darren Monroe Mindset Training posted this:

“How to Get Your Inner Steve Jobs Working

1. Do What You Love:

Your work is going to fill a large part of your life, and the only way to be truly satisfied is to do what you believe is great work. And the only way to do great work is to love what you do.

2. Do not Waste Time:

Your time is limited, so don’t waste it living someone else’s life.

3. Listen To Your Inner Voice:

Do not let the noise of others opinions drown out your own inner voice. And most important, have the courage to follow your heart and intuition. They somehow already know what you truly want to become. Everything else is secondary.

4. Focus and Simplicity:

One of my mantras---focus and simplicity. Simple can be harder than complex”.

I ask that you take time and reflect on the statements listed above. Allow the statements to resonate your entire being. Whatever feelings and emotions arise allow them to simply be. Do not make excuses do not try to figure it out, it is what it is. If what it is telling you is to make adjustments and changes in your life, listen. Life is too short, and if you don’t live life to the fullest, you will miss out on the many blessings and opportunities that have been afforded to you. You only get one life, and if you don’t live life it is over when it is over. Love, honor, respect and appreciate your life. You will not always be happy, but your life in and of itself brings forth happiness. Happiness is what you make it. So do what you love, don’t waste time, listen to your inner voice, and focus simplistically. You are the “ESSENCE OF EDUCATION” soar to new heights and be the best you can be.
