Make the Fast Lane Your Lane

Hey there, Gorgeous!

I wanted to give one of my power tips for progress. One of the most powerful things you can do to move your dream from wanting your dream to living your dream is to stay in your lane.

Give up the three C’s: Complaining, Comparing and Criticizing/Gossiping.

When you see your neighbor rocking her Apple Bottom jeans and boots with the fur, don’t comment. Let it go.

When you are on Facebook, and you notice that someone doesn’t seem to know the difference between your and you’re, and has no command over the Oxford comma. Let it go.

When you go to work, and your colleague is wearing last season’s Tory Burch wedges. Let it go.

Conversely, when you appreciate that someone does a task very well, don’t let that stop you from trying. You have no idea of how much effort they put into their endeavor. Let them run their race, and you run yours.

It can be inspiring to watch our neighbors, friends, and colleagues as they navigate the world, but when we criticize others for their style or attempts at something new it can be paralyzing for us. Train yourself to celebrate your friends and neighbors. When you celebrate others, you make life easier on yourself.

When you want the best for others, it makes it easy to want and go for the best for yourself. Otherwise, it is easy to become bogged down in worries about people criticizing you, laughing at you and ridiculing you. Those thoughts make it harder to move forward.

Retire your snark and sarcasm; it’s not helpful.

Power tip: If you want to live your best life, want the same for your neighbors. Build up and don’t tear down. Think positive thoughts about and for others and watch what happens!
