What’s Your Plan For 2017?

What’s Your Plan For 2017?

I know I’m a little late…

But wanted to let you know I’m thinking of you and wishing you and your family good things in 2017.

Don’t know about about you, but I’m glad 2016 is behind us and I’m looking forward to the challenges of 2017.

Just got back from an amazing two week trip to the Caribbean island of Guadeloupe. Had a chance to work on my film, Across The King’s River and connected with some powerful souls and a culture that enriched me in many ways.

Grateful to my friend, Omitola, for inviting me there. Guadeloupe was a new beginning for me in many ways. I’ll be sharing some experiences I had very soon.

For now, I just want to encourage you to follow your inspiration in 2017. Don’t know what your plan is for the year but that’s my plan, and I’m sticking to it. I believe in the power of inspiration more than I ever did before; I also believe it is our sacred duty to follow it no matter the cost.

To say NO to inspiration is to say NO to happiness, NO to fulfillment, NO to peace of mind. Why not say YES? I firmly believe inspiration is right 99.99% of the time. We just have to follow through.

But keep this in mind…

Following inspiration does not mean things will work out the way you want them to work out nor does it mean it will work out in the time frame you have in mind. What I’ve learned is that inspiration is a seed you plant today, but sometimes that seed does not germinate until later. Sometimes years later!

There’s a purpose behind the inspiration that has come to you, but you’re not going to discover it if you give up to soon. Go the distance in 2017, my friend. You’ll be happy you did.

This is all for now, but I would love to hear what your plans are for 2017. Comment on this blog and I will respond as quickly as I can.

Until then, may the ancestors bless, guide and protect you and your family.
