Nowadays we can become intelligent about anything with a few simple Google searches. There is enough information available in the world today to educate you on any topic that you want to know more about.  This is a good thing if you don’t overthink everything that you read and hear.  Over-analysis leads to unnecessary paralyzes.  

Do not ever forget this!

Success is not a path that is only available to the highly educated or affluent!  That is good news, right?  Rather it is a destination for those who choose to stop at nothing until they reach their ultimate goal.  Refuse to lose my friends! My analyses of success are high-level generalization, but I do believe it to be true.

We can be our own greatest obstacle or become our own biggest asset.  It’s a decision and heavily dependent on our perspective on the world around us.  I encourage everyone to use the full capacity of their brain because I believe in reflecting upon big decisions.  I will also caution you not to be too intelligent for your own success!

Do not tell yourself all of the “realistic” reasons why this is not the right time to start the journey to success.  Do not ask yourself “how” you will accomplish your dreams and passions.  I have said it before and I will not stop repeating myself when I say that, “how” is none of your business.  Do not overthink your overall situation and dissuade yourself from making forward progress.  You will have enough other people in your lives to do this for you, so don’t become an enemy of yourself!

Learning is an important aspect of growth and I do not think that anyone should ever stop pursuing this.  But is becoming too intelligent a flaw? Let’s remember what we are trying to accomplish by learning though.  We want to enhance our tools and skillset which should facilitate growth and confidence in all that we do.  Intelligence is an asset, but pay attention and don’t let it lead you away from your dreams.

Are you hearing me with all of this? 

This is important information and it may seem strange that I am talking about any of this at all.  I have been a victim of my own thinking in the past, so I know that this is possible.  Knowledge leads to growth and growth leads to intelligence.  An increase in your intelligence should be used to your advantage and not to your detriment.

[Tweet “Knowledge leads to growth and growth leads to intelligence.”]

If you have a strong work ethic and the unwavering belief that success is attainable, you are already on your way.  Pay attention to how you can add value to your clients, audience, and stakeholders and remain focused on that.

You also need to glance in the mirror occasionally and see how using your mind can also serve you in new ways.  You are not only fully capable of massive success, but you are worthy also.  At the end of the day, what I think doesn’t really matter.  It’s all about what you think, but it is nice to have support in your corner.

I dare you to stay inspired and see where it takes you.  Go get ’em!
