The “It” Factor

The seemingly unknown magic potion that helps some get exactly what they want out of life, while it seems others consistently pull the short straw.

News flash: You can still drink from the straw.

I don’t care what size straw I get.

The above picture is from today, right now, as I’m seated at a community workspace. This is yet another part of my dream coming true, even though this is a space I pay for.


We are here as humans to work out our very existence. Before we can accept our purpose, we have to accept and be grateful for the very improbableness of the chance that we are here in the first place.

What does this have to do with the IT factor?

Do You Have It?

I believe the IT resides dormant inside of us until we find a REASON.

Whether it’s a reason to continue moving forward, a reason to never quit, a reason to start something, to get in shape, to shape ourselves in a successful manner, or make enough money to feed every starving person on Earth, the IT is what helps us stay in the race.

Mentally, life is always a marathon, and rarely ever a sprint. The only sprinting we ever do is with the physical body in various forms:

  • Work
  • Errands
  • Working out
  • Thinking we are busy

I know Dr. Phil has stirred a little controversy surrounding the marathon sentiment, but let’s be honest, how many of you have ever tried sprinting toward your goals, only to be worn out and quit?

IT allows you to keep moving when you’re tired, to never ever quit no matter what, and most of all, to KNOW that you are capable of WHATEVER it is that you put your mind to.


The belief in yourself is the IT factor.

I truly believe that no matter what, the only person that can defeat me, is me. I can’t be stopped any other way, unless of course, I choose to stop.

The IT factor requires that you accept responsibility for your life, choices, and everything that has happened to you.

Agree or Nah?

Most people talk about their past like it’s still happening to them. This is not acceptance of what’s happened. It’s clear one has not forgiven and forgotten if they still speak of the past as if it matters.

It does not. The only relevance the past has to today is if the past has made you into a person that has taken responsibility, and therefore, can now create based off the experiences one has had and the lessons they’ve learned.

Agree or Nah?

Having the IT factor means there is no failure. Only learning.

No mistakes, only experiences.

No past, only growth from the darkness.

The IT factor means that no matter what, at some point, you will have the success that you so desire.

The IT factor means that you no longer have to worry or overthink, unless you’re plotting something spectacular, because as long as you are moving forward, everything else will always fall into place.

Kinda like this community workspace just did.

See you soon. Love to hear your feedback!!!!!
