First things first: who knows what a credo is? A credo is an idea or set of beliefs that guides the actions of a person or group. And today we want to share one with you.

Right, so this is what you have to do:
1. Read the text
2. Understand the vocabulary
3. Watch the video
You want to make it happen? Life’s short, let’s do this.
1. You’ll figure it out
Your mantra of choice is this: “I’ll figure it out“. You will figure it out, you will figure it out.
You want to strike this from your vocabulary: ‘I don’t know what to do, I don’t know what to do, but I don’t know what to do”. You will figure it out.
2. Life is on your side
Remember this: everything you have ever done in your entire life in the history of humanity has brought you to this point. It’s a whole lot of life force on your side.
3. Start fresh
The first kiss, a blank page, white space… beginner’s mind is an open mind and an open mind innovates.
4. Fear is natural
Respect your fear, it’s part of the creative process. It keeps you alert.
5. Make tough choices
What are you going to give up to get where you want to go? Because you can’t have it all but you can always have and always do great things.
6. Passion is fuel
Aim for passion. Balance is a myth.
7. Come out
Tell us your dream. When you declare it, share it, you are accountable and you’re helpable.
8. Do it now
Don’t let perfection become procrastination. Every masterpiece ever been done, it could have been better. Just launch and learn everything is progress.
9. You’re growing
The universe is always expanding and that includes you.
You want to make it happen? Do what you say you’re going to do. Do what you say you’re going to do, do what you say you’re going to do.
Keep it pointed to where you want it to go. Every day, today, now, do a little more of what you really want to be doing and do a little less of what you don’t want until the ideal becomes what’s real. You can do this. You got this. You can make it happen.
