A picture I found in an alley.  You can find unique antiques in places least expected

Photo of my art space to be creative 

In a previous blog I talked about the characteristics needed to be successful in a career. Those three essentials were AUTONOMY, PURPOSE, and MASTERY.  All of which are expressed through the idea of natural talent and dedicated perseverance.  Everyone has "gifts" (their natural ability, intelligence, or capability)  that are not mastered to their full potential without dedication.  Two things will happen when someone has a talent that they don't commit themselves to: 1. they get better with each day or 2. they get worse each day. I started to realize it's the environment I surround myself in that makes me more or less motivated to stay dedicated to individual aspirations. 
The Google company is an excellent example of a corporation that has evaluated the key to employee success; focus on employee morale and therefor it increases customer satisfaction.  Google encourages personal and professional growth by identifying what makes people happy.  The walls are lined with dry erase boards for ideas, scooters for the hallways, climbing walls, outdoor movie theaters, napping areas, full service free gourmet food, and much more! Google started from and idea that matured into the completion of a dream made reality.  Sometimes we think that our ideas are too big for us as an individual so it stops there. Setting small goals, baby steps, to reach the ultimate mission will create the pathway to a successful endeavor. The first step...creating your space.

1 Timothy 4:14 Do not neglect the gift you have, which was given to you by prophecy when the council of elders laid their hands on you
