Hi guys,

How are you doing? How has 2015 started out for you?

For me, it’s all about continuing to do more, and be more, to allow the undoubted greatness within me to be expressed.  I believe that doing this brings me happiness as I am no longer suppressed, oppressed or depressed.

There is nothing more upsetting to human beings made in the image of their creator than being chained,
confined or limited when it comes to living a purpose filled life.

How can you be happy if you are restrained, whether by self-imposed limitations or constraints from others around you? etc

Its time to go higher.  Its a new year. One thing I have seen is that success, leadership, freedom, happiness, call it what you will, it is never given up freely.  You must seek it, pursue it and take it.  Life doesn’t just happen. Success doesn’t just happen.

Mariah Carey sings “Make it Happen” as she encourages us to believe in ourselves, work hard and pray every day.  Good advice.

What I will add to that is don’t expect the road to be easy, or uneventful.  Don’t expect everyone to believe in you, or to help you, or to support you.  Don’t be shocked when the naysayers have their say or when things go pear-shaped!

Just be sure you keep believing in your purpose, make sure you grow powerful networks through powerful relationships with other forward-thinking individuals who love, respect and support you. They are there. You will find your supporters. Your own dream team.

I am speaking to Tyler Perry actress Cocoa Brown on this episode of the   Ask Patricia Show and she encourages us to get out of our own way and to find our own place of happy. Every day there are moments of doubt, of challenge, of difficulty, but press through and always make time for yourself and for rest.  It was interesting to hear that despite her amazing career success that she takes nothing for granted and even though she is a great comedienne, she has moments too when she “just can’t.” So take courage, and go get your life.

Find your own happy…..

Hear the show here!

Have a fabulous 2015
