It’s not over until it’s over. 

Although this new world can feel scary and uncomfortable, it is imperative to remember that times will always be changing. Life is always different. 

Now can be just as amazing as any other time if you just decide on what you want and truly – I mean truly – go after it. A lot of people only know what they don’t want versus what they do. But when you focus on what you don’t want, it winds up being more of what you get.

It is time to give yourself permission to do whatever it is that you want. You don’t need permission from anything but yourself. Look at yourself every day and fill in the blanks of what it is you want and then go after it. The universe will challenge you. It will challenge how badly you want it. But those who succeed are the ones who prove that they want it more than others.

To inspire us further, I’ve invited the incredible Forbes Riley. Forbes is known as the Queen of Pitch. She has grossed more than $2.5 Billion in product sales.
