What am I reading that is inspiring? I am reading Tyrease Gibson “How to Get Out Of Your Own Way”. This book is awesome and truly inspiring and I can related to some of the chapters as they have you sitting back thinking about your life, your business,your dreams, and your vision, and your career.
As I was reading his book, I decided to share some information from the book that is mind blowing and empowering. We all have been there or know someone who has been in the scenario or environment.
Here are some tidbits to get out of your own way so that you can walk into your purpose and excel to having a better life.
- How much do you love yourself?
- Are you a master of your environment?
- Who are your 5 people?
- What is your purpose?
- Are you ready for the next level?
- What’s your bottom line?
These of course are chapter titles that I actually make you think about your answers as Tyrese goes into details and use examples. I can honestly sit answer these questions with ease because all these questions are apart of growning so that you can go to the next level. I love me enough to eliminate negative people out of my life who are not adding value to my life. Now, I have heard the question a couple years ago regading who are your 5 people in your cirlce. I had to look back at the people in my life and truly examine those five people. I discovered my purpose 2 years ago and it’s been an amazing journey. It’s true when you walk into your purpose there will be some folks that you leave behind and some who will never understand your position or purpose. I relate Tyrese’s bottom line with, what’s your tolerance level. As you mature, your tolerence for ignorance, bull crap, negatie energy and negative talk from people will have a zero tolerane. It’s important to surround yourself with people doing what you would love to do or trying to get into.
More to come on this book and getting out of your own way. That wonderful friend some call Self-sabotage creeps into opportunities that cross your paths. It’s time to get out of your own way so that you can have a better life. I have 3 chapters left and this just hit my heart. You know when it comes to you, one must keep writing. Think about the questions above? Can you honestly answer them?
