Speaker, Author, Coach J. Shoop shared three (3) “D” steps during the “24-Hours of Motivation” live stream event presented by Che Brown, Trevor Otts and the Les Brown Platinum Speakers Network. If you've been aiming low and playing safe, it’s time to raise your standards. Aim high and fly!


  1. Do It Now – Make up your mind that you are going to do it today if it can be done. Put your ideas in use. Put them on paper, review them often, and take some action every day, even if a little.
  2. Do Not Lose Heart – Galatians 6:9 says, “And let us not grow weary while doing good, for in due season we shall reap if we do not lose heart.” Les Brown says, “When life knocks you down, try to land on your back because if you can look up, you can get up.” Believe that this will be the year you get your big break.
  3. Decide To Thrive – Decide that this is your year to prosper. What new decisions and steps do you need take? Decide that you are going to accomplish more and tap into your abilities.

This is the first recap in a series of articles, based on the 24-hours motivational event, to inspire your dreams and fuel your passion to pursue them successfully.
