If you ask people about their life, most will tell you it’s been a crazy journey. Mine certainly has and because of that I have created my own way. My own way of thinking, feeling, doing and communicating.

Because of developing and refining my own way, I have the opportunity to coach and teach others into finding and living out their own way. I’ll be sharing it here in my blog, “Go Your Own Way,” and you’ll get to learn in a few minutes’ time each week what it took me decades to learn.

I like things in three’s, so let’s start there.

  1. The first thing you need to know about going your own way is that you don’t have to have the rest of your life figured out from A to Z at this very moment. Like I did, figure out A, B, then C, etc. If you have Z in mind already, that’s fine, but it’s not essential.
  2. The second thing: It doesn’t matter whether you are blue collar, white collar or no collar. I’ve worn all three, and you can find ways to be successful on every platform just by figuring out one step at a time.
  3. The third thing: Self-help is the best help. While you should always surround yourself with people who are smarter than you, nobody can help you like you can help yourself. And when you develop a firm enough sense of self-reliance, at that point, you’ll have found your own lane and be able to stay there.

Find your own way, know your own way and stay committed to it — even when, from time to time, you may indeed get in your own way.
