Get yourself together. My father always says, “It’s hard enough to control ourselves, much less someone else.” Your life can be a blueprint for others to follow. Your actions can be the change that you want to see in the world. If you’re not walking the walk, but only talking the talk, people can see right through you. Just think of how many people you can help if you get yourself together financially. Just think of how many lives you can save if you’re healthy enough to donate blood. You can’t help Habitat for Humanity with a bad back or with low stamina. Taking care of yourself (Doing you) can lead to assisting so many other people and great causes. In fact, Russell Simmons has a book entitled “Do You.” In this book he discusses the 12 laws to access the power in you to achieve happiness and success. Those principles include…
· See your vision and stick with it.
· Always do you.
· Get your mind right.
· Stop frontin’ and start today.
· Never less than your best.
· Surround yourself with the right people.
· There are no failures only quitters.
· Science of success.
· Plant the good seeds.
· You can never get before you give.
· Successful people stay open to change.
· Be powerful, Be heard.
· Spit truth to power.
