How do we juggle all of this? Priorities, priorities, priorities!
In order to keep your priorities from becoming jacked up, you have to set your priorities straight.
I know, life can be overwhelming but you have to take control and put things in perspective. Ask
yourself, “Is this something I need to do or is this something I want to do?” Your needs always
come before your wants.
K.I.S.S. (Keep It Simple Silly). We tend to overthink everything. We think of every possible
reason to not do something. Don’t think of what can go wrong but of what can go right. Stop
overthinking. Put that energy into taking action. FOCUS!

for it! It’s yours!
