So here are the 3 steps I shared to move you into Being Non-Negotiable in 2016. Step #1 –Stop Looking at Other People’s Grass & Water Your Own. You know that saying, the grass is greener on the other side, I have found that often times we spend so much time looking at other people’s gifts, thinking things like; I could never do that, WOW I wish I had what she has or anything of the like.  Instead, if we stop looking at everyone else’s gift and grow our own, we become a blessing to this world.  What you have to know is there is DNA that was placed in you at birth.
