MM&I Header

December 17, 2012 -  What do you know for sure about yourself? About what you do? About what you love? About what inspires you? About what calms you? About what excites you?  About what engages you? Your certainty in even one specific aspect of who you are can help blossom all types of possibilities. By simply stepping forward to explore and step beyond what you think you know for sure, you can create real momentum and into what you would like to know, experience or even create.

Take an MM&I Moment to note what you believe you know for sure about yourself, your life and your work. Then list alongside each certainty what you would like to know, do, or have occur that would make it even better and more gratifying. Then step confidently forward into the unknown and realize the true power you have to go beyond what you thought possible when you use your curiosity as a launching pad towards what you only imagined you would know and do in the future.
