I can't give you an exact time frame on your end goals. What I do know for certain is that what you focus on expands, where your attention goes, energy flows. It's just the law of the universe. When you plant a garden, nurture and care for it, it blossoms. If you let the weeds take over, it dies and soon your garden withers away. Life is very similar. You have to believe in what you are creating, you have to nurture your relationships. You have to believe that your gifts will change and impact others.
There are certain things that you have to quit and others that you have to stick with, just keep moving yourself forward inch by inch and soon you will experience a series of touch downs. You are becoming a participator in your glorious life, you are now in the game ready to win.
