Kimanzi Constable, a former bread guy, felt like he was simply existing for more than 12 years. Then in 2011 he said: enough is enough! He finally developed an action plan around his dream. He completely failed at first, but he got back up and has been running strong ever since.

SHOW UP AND SHINE Questions:
If you boiled life down to one philosophy that brings meaning and adds value to your life no matter what circumstances you face, what is that philosophy for you?
Life is too short to spend even one minute miserable. At the end of your life you’re not going to remember all the stuff you had, you’re going to remember all your incredible experiences. Live your life to the fullest and die empty.
What are one or two keys to success for you?
Success is all about planning and taking action on that plan. Yes, you will fall; but if you have an action plan, you can get back up and keep moving.
What is one of the biggest mistakes you’ve made and what did you learn from it?
Waiting. I was living a life that made me miserable for 12 years. I wasted that time and will never get it back. I should have gone after my dreams sooner. The sooner you chase your dreams, the sooner your dreams can become your reality.
What is your best advice for people who want to SHOW UP AND SHINE? In other words, what would you say to help people live into their bigger story?
Figure out what your dream is. Really put some thought into it. Then, put together an action plan and get moving. Realize you will fall, but determine right now that you’ll get up every time you fall.
Additionally, realize that you need to start TODAY. We are not guaranteed tomorrow, so don’t waste the precious time you have left!
Question: What one thing on your action plan are you working on right now? If you don’t have an action plan, what’s stopping you from developing one?
