Many people refuse the call for greatness because they are afraid.

To reach your true potential you should have the fearless attitude of a hero and the loving heart of a child…this is a great combination for success.

When you are working on a dream at some point a transition takes place. After the struggle there will be a calm period and things will start to click for you. 
I know what it is like to be in the trenches trying to make a dream work. I have been there. At one point I was speaking just trying to make ends meet and I had to find a way to support my family. 

And it was hard.

Through some divine internal guidance and help from a lot of other people, I had the courage to stick it through and I carved my path to success.

Times can be tough and patience can be tested when going after your dreams… and many times you question if you should just quit and give up.

But the crazy part is… that if you quit… life is still going to be hard… because that is how life is.

If you want to reach that transition point where things open up for you and get easier you must put in the work and stay focused with persistence and courage.

These qualities are your trusted allies in the battle for your greatness. Cultivate and recognize them.
