On the #SOTR Show last Saturday I shared that I never tell people that they “can’t”. And that if you have anyone in your life that says that to you, tune them out.

You can do whatever you put before you as a goal if you FOCUS.

Never give up. Success is hard and never comes all at once. It’s incremental and will at times almost break you. By the time other people notice you’ve had some, you’ve actually been successful for quite a while.

By “successful” I mean meeting your own goals for yourself. Sit down and think about next year. What would you like to see? Write it down in large print on a poster board or print it out on paper and tape it to the poster board.

Now work your way back. That’s your plan for getting those goals done by the end of 2014. If someone tells you no – keep working and ask someone else. Then once you’ve grown go ask that first person again.

When do you think the country should re-open and get back to work?

By completing the poll, you agree to receive emails from StacyOnTheRight.com and that you've read and agree to our privacy policy and legal statement.

Place the poster board in a private area where only you, and your spouse, will see it. Now the goals are in front of you, and you can cross them off as you achieve them.

Invest in yourself and become mentally tough. Spend more time reading than watching TV. Create, and build upon relationships of value with people who share your values. Put God first.

I’ll write more on this in the coming weeks. You’re important, don’t forget that! Otherwise you wouldn’t be here, alive today at this very moment. You’re meant to contribute, God has a plan for each of us.

I’ll be bringing 2014 in on my knees praying for this country, my family and all of you. God Bless you.
