What motivates you?
I would guess things quite different from what motivates me
The drive I seek comes from things I have seen
Some good, some bad
Some fair, some foul
The secret here is to use them all
Never let the opinion of others sway your desire
To reach the pinnacle you aspire
Continue to work to meet and exceed your goals
Remind the doubters you are in control
Dreams will become reality soon enough
Got to keep working because life can be rough
Find your motivation, live your dreams
A motivated life is a wonderful sight to be seen

Walk into the Future signifies the ability to understand tomorrow is coming and you should not be afraid to move forward. The way you decide to ‘walk’ into the future will be your own unique journey. Chart your course and then work to navigate your way towards the life goals you decide to create. Use your time to explore and find what makes you happy on this new journey. Examples include:
- Take that vacation you have been putting off
- Decide to create your own blog to document your walk into the future
- Make time for family and friends (again)
- Discover new talents you may have or wanted to explore
- Live life the way you want to
The specifics of these examples can be worked out in more detail but leverage this concept to guide your journey.
My first ‘walk’ was to head down to Negril, Jamaica to enjoy the food, sun and culture. This experience was a way to unwind and recharge my mental focus. I was able to catch up on some long overdue reading for personal enjoyment. The ability to consume works by my favorite authors brings me a lot of joy, so this was an added benefit of walking into the future via my trip to Negril. Time for naps was readily available and enjoyed during this phase as well. What’s a trip to Negril, Jamaica without a trip to Rick’s Café to watch people (tourists and locals) take turns cliff diving. The reggae is awesome, and the sunsets are great at Rick’s Café. Being there enjoying the irie vibe is a tremendous way to unwind and enjoy the island.
This recharge will be used to launch several 2018 projects to bring me closer to who I want to be (professional and personal) and to bring a new level of good to my community. The charge is to make a difference daily!
Enjoy the process! Walk—don’t run!
