I write a new pledge each year to inspire you to take control of your life and career. If something is holding you back from real success, please reach out to me and let me know what it is. Perhaps you're dogged by something someone said about you, something you've done or some problem you suspect is in your way. Email me with the obstacle. I'll give you guidance to overcome it.

My Pledge for 2014

This is the year I blow the roof off
I crank up my life so loud it explodes
I leap with abandon as I shed my old skin
I swoop and I float and I dive so low
When I emerge from the depths
My punch lands a blow that cracks the case open
The thing I most wanted to know
I can finally see
The person I am, and what I’m meant to be

Me

The one you dismissed
The one you don’t see
The one you cut, like I’m butter and you’re a knife
The one who’s been waiting and negotiating for my own life
Everything I want is hiding in plain sight but was obscured
While I waited for your decision, your permission and approval
But this year that’s over, it’s all trash for removal
No more crowdsourcing and agonizing about what others expect
I’m here to command my reality and self-respect
This year I am the master, my own muse and architect
Keep your eyes on this space
I am the meaning of success!

I encourage you to print this out and put it up where you can see it and "say it."
