What does it mean to truly trust yourself? I mean truly, undoubtedly, and deeply believing in your own ability to succeed at your passion. In order to achieve a dream, the dreamer must have unregulated, uncontrolled, unrestrained passion. That passion is needed to fulfill your purpose, and it has to be so strong, so intense, that some individuals think you are slightly insane, crazy, or loco when it comes to pursuing your dream.
Three Steps to Creating a Plan to Pursue your PASSION
1.BEGIN WITH THE END IN MIND (BIG PICTURE DREAMS)
The vision of success you have for your dreams should be powerful, so powerful that it scares you. Every day, meditate and visualize on what your success looks like, and everyday, from the moment your feet hit the ground to the moment your day is done, you have to embody and work towards accomplishing those goals and making that dream come to fruition. When you visualize your success-What are you wearing? What are your mannerism? How do you present yourself? See every aspect in detail as you watch yourself succeed. Use your resources, time, energy, on things that will help you come closer to obtaining your success. I encourage you to not only dream bigger but to dream better.

2. BE INTENTIONAL WHEN ESTABLISHING YOUR GOALS
Every action should have purpose. Plan for success by planning your days, weeks, and months precisely. Even down to the minute task of selecting your wardrobe, deciding what you will eat for lunch, what networking events you will attend, to whom or what occupies your free-time, make EVERY moment count. Every task, activity, etc. anything that receives your time should go toward making your dreams come to fruition! Nothing great is accomplished overnight so dreamers have to be strategic. Dreamers need to be steadfast and diligent as they put their heads down and work. As you embark on your journey towards success, keep track of your small milestones, celebrate your small victories, and set dates as a timeline to track your goals.
3. THICK SKIN
Everything that can possibly defeat you will occur as you embark to pursue your passion. Setbacks, failure, frustrations, negative energy, naysayers, you name it, will be out to defeat you. The beauty of this is only the crazy and strong survive. You have to be crazy enough to KEEP GOING when everything around them encourages a tap out. How you bounce back from failure will determine if you make it to the finish line.
