Better to do something imperfectly than to do nothing flawlessly.” ~ Robert H Schuller

When your final years are approaching, you will not worry about how well you thought through your decisions, or how thoroughly and accurately you approached life’s forks in the road.

You will rest happily knowing you lived true to yourself, acted with confidence, and stood up for what you believed in.

So don’t worry about the perfection of your decisions. Be swift to move forward, even if it is in the wrong direction. Boldness is respectable; carefulness has never changed the world.


“Courage starts with showing up and letting ourselves be seen.” Brene Brown






Tips For Success ~ Both in Life and Business

by Stephanie on March 4, 2015












  1. Add Value

Professionally, that means the more value you can offer the more money you can make. In your personal life, more value translates to closer connections and strong personal growth.

Yoga has taught me that I have a unique song to sing, one that no one else does. We all do. What is yours?

  1. Follow Your Passion

Reading numerous biographies on great people (my way of having a mentor without leaving the house) and from my own personal observations and encounters, I’ve realized that those who achieve greatness professional and personally follow their passion. The reason why great people are few and far in-between is because most people don’t even know what their passion is.

Do you know what your passion is? If not, what are you going to do to find out? If you do know what you passion is, are you following it?

  1. Be Extraordinary

If you do the same thing as everyone else, it’s hard to be successful. It is important to find the edge and then push past it. That is how you become noticed and get what you want. Whether it is money, meaningful relationships and/or a sense of personal accomplishment, the extraordinary person attracts them all.

What is so cool about this one is we ALL are extraordinary. Yoga has taught me, though, that my unique contribution is valuable.

  1. Start Now

The one factor that is required is taking action. Most people miss out on reaching their full potential because they never start. They are always preparing, planning and waiting for the best time to start (or too afraid to start at all). The stars rarely align and you will never be completely ready so just start now.
