2018 is a pivotal year for us to WAKE UP, SHOW UP and STEP UP! Here at theTZelement Mag, we believe in honoring our God-given gifts through functionary offerings that nudge us toward our ‘better’ (really, our behind the scenes swag is like ‘totes bananas’). We are a passionate group! Passionate about accomplishing our goals, and equally passionate about motivating viewers to pursue their own. In celebration of our continued dance with destiny, it is our collective pleasure to present this ‘Leap Year’ editorial (figuratively speaking, of course), as a token of our gratitude for your continued support.

With that said, it’s time to tap into your commitment to go hard for what you want most in 2018. If you haven’t done so by now, find a mirror and stand directly in front of it. Next up, take a careful look at the reflection staring back at you (notice the depth of the eyes). Now, ask yourself this question: Are you willing to do what it takes (for as long as it takes) to win? If your answer is ‘yes’, it’s time to grab your survival vest. You have just connected with your inner-winner, and you’re ready to leap. Take a moment to nab yourself a parachute and a flashlight, because you’re on track to have the ‘success’ of your life.

Step 1: Compose a tweet to insist that every American receives a copy of the 2018 GOP tax reform bill. No, not really! That was just a side-ruse to see if you were paying attention. Caution: refrain from tweeting real news inquiries that could stir the pot’us (see what we did there). We repeat, do not post said tweet!

  • 1st (really) BELIEVE IN YOURSELF! Nothing great was ever accomplished without first believing in one’s ability to transform a concept into reality. This is not to say fear and reluctance aren’t factors that work in opposition of hard work or confidence; however, fear is merely a channel of doubt (and we are not subscribers). Fear is nothing more than a lettered emotion, that serves us best when we avoid it. #4u2Believe
  • 2nd Desire, Decision & Design – Weak desires and indecision make for weak outcomes. To prevent lackluster performance and frivolity, it’s best to focus on aspects of success you truly desire. Whatever you wish to develop or improve (leadership philosophy, product knowledge, spiritual wisdom, physical health, and the like), that’s where you should start. Once you identify your passion, decide the best course of action to advance your vision. A great place to start is to first look at yourself – then expand your view outward to your center of influence. Ask yourself what resources and people do you currently have access. Create (design) two separate contact lists (personal, and professional). Your ‘hit lists’ are yours to manipulate into action. Start emailing, calling, Skyping, messaging, meeting, co-branding, and advertising with the names on your lists. You may not know it right off, but someone in your circle is a vital link that can strengthen the framework for your success (and vice-versa). Caution: GIGO is a real concept (Garbage In, Garbage Out).
  • 3rd DO THE WORK! Stop talking about what you want, and start doing the necessary work to mesh the happ’s with the hype. NIKE, Inc. made a mint from inspiration and innovation in the world of athletics – simply because it inspired people to perform some type of athletic movement. Now, it’s your time to put your plans into motion! And if that means staying up a few late nights here and there (responsibly of course)—then so be it! You may feel a bit noddy, albeit accomplished in the end. Note to Self: Sacrifice is a prerequisite for success.
  • 4th Stop Making EXCU$E$ – When the ‘lack-of-capital’ defense is used in cases of procrastination, it makes smart people appear work-shy. News flash: most successful people don’t enter the entrepreneurial area with adequate start-up revenue. Most of them rely on investors (Angel Investors, Peer-To-Peer, Venture Capitalists, Banks, Personal Investors, credit cards, savings, bartered services, loans and online business derivatives. If you don’t have a large budget to fund your dream, you should consider creating an entrepreneurial work-around (click here for inspiration: http://bit.do/TZelementSAYSgoGETit, http://bit.do/2018TZelementTIP). Our point is simply this: whether your challenges involve logistics, influence, branding, planning, presentation, recruiting, or brick-and-mortar overhead, there is a creative way to push past roadblocks, you’ll just have to find it! Money Matters: The road to equity is paved with profitable intentions.

There you have it! Your ‘Leap Year’ outline for 2018. Now, it’s time for you to get busy customizing this complimentary abstract (tick-tock, tick-tock, tick-tock). While you’re busy formatting your action plan, you can trust our team to work in tandem with you to provide bold, well-researched and timely information to spawn increased inspiration. We can’t create a custom algorithm to manifest your destiny (that’s your task); but, we’re willing to offer a well-intended push that moves you in the right direction.

We enjoy what we do, and we want you to share in the feeling of success as it relates to your vision. We appreciate the opportunity to serve as a touchstone for motivation and positivity in the world, and more specifically within your social circle.

Through POSITIVE commentary, we look forward to bringing you news and information you can rely on and share. Just as we believe hope floats while the reckoning of hard work comes due, we believe in layering the viewer experience with POSITIVITY and certainty. So, if you need added motivation to help exercise your gift(s), keep it locked for each edition of theTZelement Magazine, where the vibe is positively prophetic. Still think you WANT SUCCESS? Get up, get out … and GO GET IT!

We’ll take a cup of kindness yet,
For auld lang syne …
