It has been a few days since I last blogged. As you know, I am busy creating new projects and new ventures. In less than 3 weeks, I will be on a plane to Taiwan. I’ll be there to find my half brother who I have never meet as well as grow my clothing business. I am looking for people who believe in my vision and who has a few bucks to spare! Here’s the link: http://www.whenyouwish.com/project/taiwanbrother
Here is my vision for the future: run for local office, become a public figure, speak internationally, change the world by telling my story! Here’s my timeline of what was, what is and to come:
Now, on to my 3rd step to creating your business- don’t compare yourself!
Yes, it’s okay to analyze other peoples’ business, and to even imitate a few aspects of their business, but listen to your own heart…don’t compare! Just because another business is thriving now and yours isn’t doesn’t meant that you should give up. Growing up, I heard a lot of discouragements from my elders.
“Do you want to end up like us?….we followed our dreams and look at us now!”
I always wondered whether they were right. Yet, I realize….they just gave up TOO SOON. If dreams were easily reached, everyone would be living their dreams. I think that anything worth fighting for is going to be difficult at times, but worth it.
So now that you have a vision, faith, and you are not comparing yourself but believing firmly in your own vision of what you want…you are truly growing your tree.
Mine looks like this, you can create yours by drawing a tree with your growing array of skills, talents and passions.

I so agree about listening to yourself and not comparing yourself. It’s so important that what you create comes from yourself and is aligned with your own values. Good luck in Taiwan!
Thank you Liz! I just came back from Taiwan by the way, but thank you so much!
Hope you had a great time!
I did! How is your program going?
Good post. The important take away here, for me, is to not give up. I force myself to keep moving forward and think how happy I’ll be in the future that I didn’t call it quits…
Thank you! Best of luck to your endeavors! Don’t give up!
