You hear me say this all the time. Community is the new currency. What does that actually mean though? It means, there is value in your community, aka the people you surround yourself with. The people who know you and the and people you know.
In today’s world this impacts us both personally and professionally, more than at any other time in history. Why? Because now our community doesn’t end at our front door. We used to go home and only be influenced by our immediate family members (and maybe the 5 o’clock news). Now, however, our community is connected to us 24 hours a day 7 days a week all because of social media. Most people wake up and reach for their phone (89% of Americans say they check their phones within the first 10 minutes of waking up) and guess what? Your community started influencing you before you even got out of bed. Most people also look at their phone right before going to sleep (95% of people use the phone for something just before going to bed) Your community now just influenced your dreams. Now if the people you are connected to in your community are sharing and talking about their goals, dreams, positive quotes, etc you will think the same. But if people in your community are posting about the latest political drama, constantly complaining, and sharing negative news stories, then guess what? You will start to see the world just as they do.
Setting goals will get you on a true path to success in your life.

What do you want your life to look like? When you think about...
By HGYC Member Melissa Slemp Fifty-six thousand nine hundred and forty (56, 940), this is the number of insulin shots I have given myself in 39 years living with type 1 diabetes. Bet you are saying, WOW that is a lot of shots. Yes, it is but when you are in it, knowing what is necessary to survive, our inner resolve naturally takes over. We all face obstacles in life, how we view and decide how to reframe this is essential to living our purpose. It took years for me to understand the purpose of my diagnosis. I felt bitter focusing...

Actually, I know you’re exhausted. You have grand dreams, huge passions, deep love, and a plan to put it all in place. You know what you’re supposed to be, and you want to go be it, but everything in you is tired.
You’re tired of managing your schedule and the schedules and expectations of others. You’re tired of working towards a goal only to be told that it’s still not enough. You’re tired of being tired!
I know, friend. I know, and I also know it’s not your fault.

I had absolutely no clue as to what I would do next nor did I actually plan on retiring. I just knew that there was something else that was out there for me and I had to take a “leap of faith”. By making this decision, I allowed myself for those few days soon after being downsized to reflect. During those moments of reflection, I admitted to myself that I really had not been happy at work for a few years. My plan was to “hang in there” for another 7 years until I officially retired. I soon began to realize that the “hang in there” plan” was not a plan. It only meant limiting my life by not allowing me to dream about other achievements and adventures that were out there waiting for me to discover. I asked myself, “If not now, then when”?
