There are just soooo many nuggets in this very short video and I hope you get some inspiration to press on with whatever you’re thinking of doing, having, or being in your life right now but afraid to pursue.

Tell me what your favorite phrase of his is from the video.

Taking a nap isn't being "unproductive" it's actually being productive. 

Don't believe me? Check out my personal reflections on napping on the +Best Kept Self blog!

Being realistic is the most common path to mediocrity. Right on, Will!

But why? Because that perspective keeps you from being open and thinking all around the box. Being realistic keeps you from asking "What if?" which helps open up new paths, thoughts, ideas, patterns you may not have seen.

I'm not saying there's anything wrong with it. Let's face it...sometimes realism comes handy. I'm just asking that you stay OPEN to new ideas and change (the thing must people don't like and handle horribly!). 😉✌

When you start to do what you want to do with integrity and heart, you release the need to have permission from others. Agree?

Agree. Old saying: better to ask for forgiveness than permission.
