Action every day goes a LONG way

So today I learnt some really great lessons and the one I want to share the most is that a little action every day goes a long way. To put it into terms I will compare it to my dream of writing and recording a single with Kelly Clarkson. Even though it's a BIG dream I KNOW I will accomplish it. The reason is because every day I'm taking baby steps to make it happen. I will compare this to my dream is writing and recording a single with Kelly Clarkson. Even though it seems like a daunting dream I have to remember to take baby steps. The first step was admitting OUT LOUD what my desire was so that others knew about it. My next step was to sit and think up a plan. You MUST have a plan if you are going to accomplish something! If you don't have a plan how will you know what to do!? How will the universe know how to help you reach this dream! So sit and make a plan. Once you have the plan, put the plan to ACTION. This is the step most people don't do because "it's too hard," well every thing in life comes from something, not nothing. Take those first steps and DO something. My action was starting to write possible songs to record to grab Kelly and her peoples attention. I plan on making a YouTube video explaining what I want and then singing the song. After this is complete I'm going to post/tweet/facebook/re-tweet and e-mail the heck out of that video! I'm also going to ASK FOR HELP from my friends. People we LOVE and who LOVE us what to HELP US, so let them! You're not in this alone, contrary to popular belief, people in the world do what to help you. So ask. The hopefully this will generate a buzz and maybe I'll hear something! If not, I'll make another plan and do it again, and again, and AGAIN until it happens! Thomas Edison "failed" 10,000 times before he perfected the electric light bulb but we don't ever pay attention to that part now do we? If he had tried 5 times and gave up who knows how different the world would be today. Don't give up! Sticking with something is the only sure fire way that you will be successful at it. My saying right now is "A quitter never wins, and a winner NEVER quits!" because I know I'm a winner no matter what anyone else says to me. People will poo poo your ideas and want to bring you down, it's like the crabs in the bucket, but don't let them! Tune them out because if you let them get in your head you're just going to end up another crab in the bucket, and I don't know about you but I can't stand stinky sea creatures OR people.

Always with Love,
Calan
