I hope that Thanksgiving was an amazing day for everyone! I really enjoy the day because I get to spend it all with my family, the people who matter most to me, and the food is good too!
I'm going to start off with saying what I am thankful for. I'm doing this because 1. Thanksgiving time for me is a time to look around you and be thankful for what you have, and 2. Being grateful and humble are skills everyone should always be working on.
I am thankful for my health and the health and well being of my family. A simple thing to be grateful for, but so very important. My health keeps me going forward, and the health of my family let's me focus. I am thankful for the fact that I get to do exactly what I want to do for a career. This one is a big one for me for a couple reasons. I see so many people who are working jobs that they hate, making excuses for why they aren't doing what they love, and it's a sad thing to see. There is no reason for anyone to be working jobs they don't want to be, but for some reason most don't see the opportunities available to them.
Business Thought of the Day
I recently spent a morning writing down my personal and business goals/aspirations. Before I get into them, let me just say that doing this is extremely useful, and it also helps to keep the "North Star" in view. When I say north star I am talking about the big long term goal we all have.
I won't go into crazy detail to save time, but I will touch on what I wrote. I started off with what I think true success is, and to simply, I said that success is being able to do what I love to do for work. I then wrote down goals, plans for the future and things to always keep in mind. Purpose, my "quantum leap", financials, authenticity, productivity, reflection and the role that fear and worry plays in to my business decisions.
Writing all this down really helped me to put things in focus and have a more organized plan. I highly recommend doing this, not only for businesses, but also for personal use. It has the same effects, but instead of helping focus and organize business, it is helping quality of life.
I am currently out on the road, so hopefully I will have the chance to blog more in the coming week. Check out my daily travel vlog on the Holboy Entertainment Facebook page to see where I am on my trip. Keep making awesome stuff out there!
