When you have a feeling in your heart that tells you your supposed be doing something and you know you have a special gift or talent for it you shouldn't let anything stop you. Through the years I've noticed the following few things that really seem to be the driving force for success:
1. Along the way as you reach for your dreams you may come across negative people who will give you one-thousand and one reasons why your dream is impossible. Those are the people who may need to fall by the wayside. Forget about them and surround yourself with positive people who are also in the pursuit of their dreams and positive people who are willing to help you fight for your dreams. Imagine if all the great inventors of the world had not pursued their dreams we might not have all of the luxuries and even necessities that we have today.
2. Is your dream, your gift, your passion always on your mind? Do you find that your always thinking about it, talking about it, planning for it, jotting down notes about it so that you won't forget? Successful people don't waste time and energy. It's hard for them to have just idle time watching TV, reading a book, or playing a video game unless it's somehow tied to improving or enhancing themselves in order to accomplish their dreams. Never stop improving.
3. Are you afraid to fail? Successful people aren't afraid to fail. In fact they are risk takers. They have to be willing to take chances in order to succeed. If everyone played it safe some things would never change. Successful people don't see a failure as a downfall. They see it as a way to grow and improve. You know the old saying, "If at first you don't succeed..." Yes, there's truth to that. I don't know where it came from, but my Dad always said to me, "Nothing beats a failure, but a try."
Words from the poem "Mother to Son" by Langston Hughes says it best, "So boy, don't you turn back. Don't you set down on the steps 'Cause you finds it's kinder hard. Don't you fall now-- For I'se still goin', honey, I'se still climbin', And life for me ain't been no crystal stair.

In a marriage you always want to keep yourself up and look good for your man, but there are bad feelings that come when a marriage fails. You seem to lose yourself, get depressed and just not want to get out of bed. That's what happened to me. I got divorced and completely shut down. I forgot about looking good. I forgot about fashion, style, and all those things that made me happy. I got complacent and eventually comfortable with not looking good. I reached a point where all I did to leave the house was throw on a baseball cap, t-shirt, jeans, and tennis shoes. No makeup, no hairdo, nothing. This went on for years. I finally woke up one day and realized that I'd been living under a rock, hidden away from the rest of the world. I just woke up and now I'm ready to find me again. I'm ready to fight back; to come out from under my rock and find my sense of style again. It's time for a new journey

In the past, Anita faced many things which she had to find the strength and courage within herself to overcome. She has eagerly embraced opportunities of advancement that life presented, many times having to deal with the negativity or limitations placed on her by others. Anita recalls when she was a young girl growing up in a small community in North-western Ontario, Canada, that not everyone she met in life looked at her equally. Not everyone was nice, kind, or as supportive as she expected them to be. Anita eventually came to understand that this was the reality of a world of broken people. An individual cannot be expected to give love, compassion, empathy, kindness, or encouragement if they have not truly experienced unconditional love and acceptance themselves.

I would love my readers to gain a new perspective they may have never thought of before. The biggest take away would be for them to be inspired to never give up on themselves and begin to be motivated once more.
