When you're on the track to success and pushing towards your goals and dreams, there's nothing like having a support group of sincere and likeminded people behind you. Sometimes we're lucky enough to have family and friends in our corner that push us along, but that isn't always the case. Here's where I've found social media has stepped in to save the day. A loooong time ago, I started following writer Britni Danielle on Twitter. I loved the links she posted to her writings, and soaked up the advice she graciously doled out for other aspiring writers and dreamers. When she began mentioning that she was creating a Facebook group called the GOALDiggers (ha!) Project, I made sure I was one of the first to join in. Since then, the GOALDiggers group has served as an awesome sounding board for advice, a place where I can toot my horn, an understanding group where I can vent frustrations, and an environment where I can encourage and help others in their goal attainment as well.
Britni also served as my writing coach for a few sessions, and the knowledge and advice she gave me was priceless. As a writer for publications like Clutch Magazine, JET, Ebony and others, I knew I had to absorb what she had to offer - and her advice has helped me tremendously with my own writing.
In a day and age where people seem to selfishly hoard who they know, what they know, and how they do what they do, Britni is one of the most unselfish and giving success stories I know. While she will humbly say she's still on her way, I can definitely say she has achieved a level of success many of us will never know - she took charge of her life, created her own lane, and is doing what she loves while taking care of herself and her family. Now, Britni has found a new way to give to those of us who need a push forward with our goals - her new free e-book, Break Out Of Your Box: 5 Steps To Start Following Your Dreams!
As a member of the GOALDiggers Project, I was able to get my hands on a preview copy late last week. I took the time to read and ingest the beautifully written and designed book, and LOVED it.

As per Britni's site, this book covers:
- How to get clear about your vision
- How to network with others who will support your dream
- Why you need to give yourself a concrete deadline
- How to set measurable goals to achieve your dream
- How to overcome the need to be perfect
- Resources to get your started on your journey
I read it, took notes, evaluated what I was currently doing and how I was doing it, and decided to make some tweaks to my game plan based on Britni's thoughts and examples. At just 30 pages, Break Out Of Your Box is a clear-cut, entertaining, and motivating read that will really start to get your juices flowing and get your wheels turning. Even better - any book that uses a Biggie line as its dedication is good as gold in my eyes!
If you've been looking for a way to start making ANY kind of positive change in your life, try Break Out Of Your Box as a guide. Acknowledging that you want better for yourself is the first step - but that self-revelation will be in vain if you don't start taking the steps towards initiating those improvements! Put Break Out Of Your Box on your must-read list, and get to work! Hey - you can even make it one of your 5 Before 8 and get your day started right ;)
