Stevie Wonder, Confidence, Mindset and Reaching Your Goals
During the concert he played an incredible flat guitar. It’s a little blurry, but here’s a picture of it. His hands moved so fast that it was mesmerizing!
It would have been impressive for anyone and then you remember ~ Stevie Wonder is blind!!!
Watching him, all I could think was ~ how did he ever have the confidence to learn that?
He can’t see the board, and yet he never missed a beat. And here I am thinking that I would be too scared to even try.
I wonder if he was ever scared, or frustrated or overwhelmed. My guess is yes. He has to have been, but he had the right mindset to keep him moving forward.
“Life has meaning only in the struggle. Triumph or defeat is in the hands of the Gods. So let us celebrate the struggle!”
Perfectly said! Yes, some things are going to be a struggle. That is part of life. So rather than spending your life trying to avoid it, celebrate that it means you are on the right track. So often we don’t fail trying, we fail to even take the first step.
What have you given up on? What are you too afraid to take the next step towards?
Well, if Stevie Wonder can do it, you can too.
I don’t know what his secret to success is, but I know that if you try these, you will be on your way.
- Take the first step. Even a teeny tiny baby step counts. And now you are closer to your goal.
- Learn from others. This path may be new for you, but someone else out there has walked it before you. Learn from them.
- Trust yourself. You were born to be amazing. Here’s your chance.
- Give yourself grace ~ We all make mistakes. Those that get back up fastest have the most success.
- Know that the Universe has your back.
What can you do today to take the next step toward your goals?

I posted a reel on instagram this week that got a surprising amount of feedback. Surprising in how grateful people were to finally have someone admit the truth. You don’t have to be part of the 5am club to be successful. Did your shoulders relax just a little when you read that? I hope so.…Read More
You know those agents – the lucky ones whose clients magically show up, and they always seem to be having fun while posting sales and having a life. The type of agent you wish you could be – someday. What if YOU could be that person right now?? On the outside, luck can look like…Read More
This is your reminder to keep going and trust that things will work. It’s easy to be impatient and want to know how the story ends. Because if we know that, then we can get there faster and avoid making mistakes along the way. But that’s not how it works. And sometimes the mistakes are…Read More
This is one of the biggest things most agents are missing in their business. But if you’ve ever been a part of a great mastermind and have a solid tribe you know that it’s one of THE best things not only for your business, but for your soul. We aren’t meant to do this alone.…Read More
I was chatting with someone this week who mentioned that they were spending this week journaling, planning and deciding what they want to create in 2024. Sounds awesome! But their last comment got me – I know I should have done this sooner, but… Sooner says who? It got me thinking about all of the…Read More
Ideally it’s both. But somewhere between the joy of dreaming into new goals, and attaching metrics (ie the how) things can go from creative to confining. In the ‘what if’ space – it’s easy to be creative. At this point the possibilities are endless. There is no right or wrong, pass or fail. Actions and…Read More
As we head into the last 2 weeks of the year Grace and Light are the 2 words that keep coming up. Whether this is your favorite time of the year, or one that you would be just as happy to skip – it’s a lot. It can be an intense time of celebration, reflection,…Read More
Seems like a simple question. Of course the reflex answer is yes. I can absolutely have anything I want. But deep down do you believe it? I just came back from a few days of business planning with 3 amazing agents. When we get together we go deep. It’s WAY beyond what we want our…Read More
Today is December 1st. Which means 2024 is right around the corner. No sooner do we finish celebrating the accomplishments from this year – we reset the counters to zero and look to create something new. We list our goals, envision our future and formulate action plans. All necessary parts of the process. But what…Read More
I’m over here at my Dad’s still this week. I’ll be here for a total of 11 days. I love the time with him, but his internet is the WORST. I’m actually using my phone as a hot spot to write this post because the internet is so unstable. I’m all for taking time to…Read More
