Day 17 AM – 300 Steps to Greatness


When I started this initiative, I had no idea that I would REALLY be able to do as much as I have to date.

Blogging this journey regularly has really helped me be able to track my progress on a regular basis, but, more importantly has enabled me to re-focus and prioritize when necessary.

Today I have an article to finish, and an interview for another article.  My main challenge is that school is closed today and my son already thinks I LIVE on the computer and “work all the time”!  I’m pretty sure that means ordering pizza and watching a movie sometime today 🙂

I’m very excited about the “Opening Doors” project and am so eager to share it with you.  Yesterday I did more work on the website, acquired the domain name and edited AGAIN.  A few times I stopped and wondered if I REALLY know what I’m doing.

For the longest time people have asked about my writing.  I have a friend who read something I wrote many  years ago and keeps asking when is that book going to be finished – lol!

Ironically, the first set of books I plan to publish are designed to help other people, based on my experiences.

If you decide to write a book, set up a blog, here’s the best piece of advice I can give you:


Don’t try to be a subject matter expert or creator of something that you don’t know about.

Writing what you know and have lived adds credibility, which is very critical when establishing a platform of followers.  I could not convincingly blog about 300 Steps to Greatness if I were not taking them myself.

Take a few minutes today and think about what you know and what you have lived.  You may not ever write about it, but, I promise you, there is a way creatively to take your life to the next level once you take inventory of what you have to offer.  No matter what it is, there is value.  Tap into the value of YOU!

Have an awesome day 🙂

  1. Needless to say, sleep won the battle last night. AND I woke up at 4am as if I had to work! My goals for today are:
    1. Read The Artist’s Way- Basic Principles and Basic Tools
    2. Write for at least one hour on one of my WIPs
    3. Clean my apartment

    I have been thinking about our assignment to re-evaluate our relationships in light of the effect they can have in meeting our goals. I’m still thinking, still re-evaluating but I’m close to putting my thoughts on paper.

    In thinking about what I know and what I have lived I’m not sure if I want to write about it. I guess because its my story, my experiences I don’t think that they would be interesting enough for other people to read. I was a teen mom but my story is not sensational. There were rough times but my mom is the greatest mom is the world so the support was there and we are fine. I’m married, have good people in my life, have a BA degree and a job/career. My son is 19 (soon to be 20), happy, healthy, working toward his college degree. So… I don’t know. I’m still thinking on it as I type so this is definitely incomplete. I’ll roll it over in my head a bit more and comment again. I have to change my view a little from being centered on me and how I feel about it to how it may help someone else. I’ll get it together….

    Awesome is what I try to make everyday! You have an awesome day as well!


    • Relationship evaluation is an ongoing process. I had to learn that the hard way. Before, I would hold on to relationships out of a perverted sense of “loyalty” and end up hurting myself. It’s something we need to do on a case by case, ongoing basis.

      And your story, is YOUR story. That’s what makes it unique. I wasn’t always so transparent with my life. It’s not easy, but, it’s what I’ve been called to do and I don’t believe that everyone is. However, you are right, helping others is the ultimate goal of life – even if you SHOW them your experiences without telling them, you are still sharing!
