“I wanted to be where you are.” Tayler, Beyonce, or Bruno

“I want to be where you are.” 
It is a song by the late Michael Jackson. It was also the message that Les Brown gave at a seminar called, “Get Motivated.”
Where you are
He said he began his career by watching others and thinking I can do that.  He started with nothing, no money, no family backing, or even a college education; he has had many successful career and made millions.  His message was, where I am standing, you can be also.  Now that is motivation.  Looking at other and be inspired to do the same things or do better.
 
There are a lot of people who can sing better than Tayler Swift, and Bruno Mars, or dance better than Beyonce.  However, they do put their self out there toward making it.  I met a person at this same seminar who was a book writer.  He has made over $100,000 on a book that has not been published.  Why is it that we live by seeing others succeed, and feel disappoint that we were not the one with the success?  I have heard many success stories; most started the same way.  When you want to succeed you have to take a steps toward your goals.
 
I have been many seminars on being successful.  You can’t be disappointed in anything that you have never done for yourself.  Even if you fail, you have continue trying.
 
One of the first things I learned from reading and going to success seminars, is that you are going to fail many times before you make it.
 
The second thing is to keep on trying.  You will learn and do better, when you have failures by trying again.
I remember applying for a government job, where they would give a standard test to certify you for the position.  It was the same test they gave for each entry-level job.  I must have taken that test about five times over the next three months.  Each time I would do better on the test, by being able to read more carefully and correct a questions that I may have answered wrong on, or missed the time before.  By the times, I got my results from the last test I was in the top ten percent. 
Motivate and push yourself to do something that you are good at, then take it to another level.  I will tell you about levels that next time.

I do not consider myself as a great writer, but an avid dreamer, an artist, with a great vision of life. Being a writer is a new career for me, so there are so many things that I have to learn. I love learning things. I also love change and opening myself to new adventures. I have a lot of interests besides for romance, which is the type of book I am writing. I also love motivational and spiritual anything, i.e. angel. The things that help you when times are tough. Just like many I have experiences of good and bad times through life. Most of my life, even young as twelve I worked continuously, my last job, I retired after 25 years. Where I go in the future, who knows? I have Bachelors in Business, AA in Office Procedures, AS in Consumer and Family Studies, Diplomas in Legal and Fashion, among others. My first book that I have completed is a romance novel trilogy of about three sister, Olivia, Samantha and Maxie (Mommy's living dolls). www.ivysmemorymakers.com Keep following me, I have something really special to tell you. I promise you will love it. My goal, "I am going to open up your heart" xoxo
