Welcome To The New Year!

West Ashe - New Year

Welcome to the New Year people! It’s amazing how unmotivated we can be throughout the year, but when that ball drops we all have this urge to GO! Whether it’s new resolutions to better yourself, your business, or your community, it seems everyone’s ready to make a change. We all know how hard it is to keep that motivation coming. If we set the bar too high we burn out if we don’t hold ourselves accountable (or have someone to do to that), then it is easy to let things slide and go back to our old routine. Let’s face it; habit forming is hard. Everyone’s heard that you could break or form a habit in 13 weeks, but not too many of us get there on the first try. I’m speaking from experience. So in an effort to help keep ourselves and you our faithful followers motivated we are dedicating this 2017 blog to all things motivational. If you have anything that has helped you stay motivated, please share it with us. Our goal is to build a creative community, which celebrates each other’s work and thrives on sharing ideas to help everyone achieve their goals.

“Twenty years from now you will be more disappointed by the things you didn’t do than by the ones you did do. So throw off the bowlines. Sail away from the safe harbor. Catch the trade winds in your sails. Explore. Dream. Discover.”

- Mark Twain

This quote has meant a lot to us a West Ashe, and we hope you enjoy it as much as we do. We used this quote as our motto when we decided to move out West and is something we keep in mind as we take steps forward in our business. It is a reminder to always to be pushing and trying new things. No one will ever remember you if you never stand out. Businesses cannot attract customers by relying on what has worked for everyone else. You must forge your own path and see what works for you and your business. It is a helpful reminder to know that even if you take that chance and fail, there is always tomorrow, there is always something you haven’t tried. So explore, dream, discover and keep motivated.
