Just Blow It Up by @DixieDynamite #JBIU

Just Blow It UpHave you ever gotten stuck? I mean – really stuck.  I have, and it’s cost me more time than I’d like to admit.  I let myself be held back from reaching my goals in work and home life by myself, the excuses I believed about others, and by getting distracted by the next shiny new thing.

My friend Dixie Gillaspie has been great at helping me identify what my own excuses were, and challenging me to question why I haven’t yet reached some of the goals.  She’s done it again in her first book, “Just Blow It Up“.

Here are a few of my favorite quotes from the book that have really challenged me this week:

  • Do you know what boundaries you’ve established? What things are nonnegotiable —you simply will not do anything that requires that you violate this code?
  • “You’ll never give 100 percent effort to achieving anything you aren’t 100 percent certain that you want to do.”
  • To blow up a barricade you must be mentally and emotionally clear and connected to your desired destination. You must be ready to embrace your success.
  • Once we stop blaming outside elements for keeping us from our desires, once we stop blaming ourselves for not pursuing our desires, then we can ask the right questions, and answer them truthfully. Then we can make choices based on our own truth, rather than our fear.

If you have run into a brick wall on the way to your goals, this book will help you blast through that and get on your way to your destination.

Stay tuned…. my destination will soon be ready to share too 😉
