“If only I could…”

"I just wish it wasn’t this way."

"I just wish everything was different."

"I just wish that circumstances were better."

I am DONE with all of these statements. It's time that we all put down our magic bottles and start doing.

Making magic in your life is about taking ownership. Ownership of what you want, what you do, and who you want to become.

Taking ownership of your life is the ultimate step in self-care.

Nobody else is going to do it for you.

You are THE ONLY ONE who can make any changes for yourself. Instead of spending your entire life waiting for a genie to come along and fix it, ask yourself what you can do today. Right now. And then go do it.

Take all that energy that you expend thinking of how things could be different, of wishing, and angsting and point it towards something that might actually make a change. Take a risk.

Don’t get an idea and then spend all of your time on facebook and twitter and blogs trying to gauge if it’s going to be successful. If an idea lights you up and you can’t help but get caught in the momentum, jump in, do it, then figure out how to get the word out to the right people.

Life, living your dreams, effective business, all of it: it’s not about selling what you love to the people in your life. It’s not about being one more person in your circle doing the same thing. It’s not about using your creative product to seek validation from a club that you don’t really feel like you fit into.

It’s about saying “fuck ‘em all” and going after it for yourself, because you can’t not do it, and letting that make you become alive.

It’s about living. It’s about breathing. It’s about being.

It's about owning who you are and what you bring to the world. Your voice. Your point of view. Your magic.
