"What did I say?" These naturals ain’t playing! Lmao! #repost #sundayfunday
15 - year old entrepreneur Warren Cassell gives us 4 tips on being wildly #successful
1. Understand What You Have to Offer
On a daily basis, I am criticized for overpromoting myself, my books and my successes (which is shocking, because I actually believe I’m underperforming in my self-promotion). But getting out of obscurity will only create more opportunities. Getting people to know you is not bad—in fact, it is vital to your success.
2. Be Courageous … Because Nothing Else Pays
Asking influential people for their time, asking someone if he or she would support your small business, or even applying to go to an Ivy League university may be nerve-racking, but remember that everything you want is on the other side of fear.
The virtue of courage can be what defines those who reach the heights that most cannot. Being courageous is not at all easy, but it can be very rewarding. And if we do not get over our nerves and fear, we may wind up missing a lot of opportunities that await us. Be courageous, because nothing else pays.
3. Persist as if Your Life Depends on It
When children want something, they cry, stomp and make noise until they get their way. However, as children get older they lose this trait. Is this a good thing?
Children lose this trait because they are constantly being told that being stubborn is bad. But highly wealthy and successful people are incredibly stubborn.
Part of the reason I have come so far is that when I want something, I persist until I get it. You should never settle for less than what you want. It’s all too often that we set goals, hit a roadblock, and then lower our initial target. In order to be successful, you need to persist as if your life depends on it.
4. Think Ridiculously
Thinking too small is the biggest mistake that I have made in my entrepreneurial journey thus far.

Everyone had a dream. Everyone has a vision of what they want for themselves. It’s easy to THINK of what you would like your life to look like. The factor that unites your drams from reality is the hustle. If all you’re doing is living in your head then that’s where your dreams will live. Prayer and meditation are good but it won’t get you any closer to your dreams unless you’re taking massive action. Get up and DO!

#money is a catalyst for change. The big idea behind this message is to spend money on things that will make the world become more of a place you & your children want to live in. Every time you spend money you are saying, “These are the kinds of things I want to see more of”. We all have the #POWER to positively shape our world and fix some of the problems we aren’t happy with.
If you want better #music stop support garbage artists. You really don’t have to settle for what local radio is #PAID to play. If you want better food, support your #localfarmers. Stop talking about change and be about change!
"October Jones (real name Joe Butcher), the prolific writer and illustrator behind gems like Texts From Dog and thesecommuter sticky-note doodles, is at it again with a fun series of sticky notes featuring a grimly determined cat named Peppy posing next to motivational messages. He draws them and leaves them in the trays of the train he takes for unsuspecting fellow commuters.
If you’re having a case of the Mondays (or of any other day of your work week, for that matter), these images are perfect for getting inspired and pepped up!”

Now say it loud!
A lot of people get in their own way, choosing to blame others for why they are where they are in life. When you become an adult you start to realize it is you who is in control of your life. Here are 5 things to let go of to get out of your own way:
1. Stop blaming others
2. Stop complaining
3. Stop reliving in the past
4. Let go of fear
5. Stop making excuses
Now get to #work! :)
We have no control over the family we’re born into. Sometimes it’s a beautiful sitatuon, other times not so much. No one family is reated equal however as adults we have total control over who we CHOSE to be with (arranged marriages aside). If you aren’t happy with who you were into, you have a choice to make family into what you want it. Choose wisely…
If you have a conversation with yourself 1 yr from now, will you be happy with where you are? 5 yrs from now? Take an assessment of your life and see how the decisions you make today impact your tmw. Have a deep conversation with yourself, be real and ask yourself, “Are the actions I’m taking today leading me to a self I’ll be happy with tmw?”

#Confidence is not built in a day. Just like showers and #motivation, confidence is something that requires constant upkeep. This morning I woke up in one of my favorite t-shirts given to me by my #friend @lovecoachdania . It’s message is so simply understated that we tend to overlook its power.
You are #beautiful…
