With time I’ve realized that I’ve hindered myself from being the absolute best version of myself that I could be. Yes, I’ve set goals verbally but no I didn’t write them down nor did I consider a plan b.
If you want to accomplish a big goal write it down and also include the small things that are needed to accomplish that goal. Also remember that accomplishing small things don’t differ from accomplishing something big. It’s all progress and as long as you’re trying to improve things usually fall in place.
I don’t think I realized how powerful writing things down were until I heard it on an interview and I actually thought about it. Everything that I’d ever written down I accomplished. Opposed to the things that I said verbally those things didn’t go so well.
I’m a visual learner and I also have a photographic memory so once I jot it down, I know what I have to do to accomplish it! & lets just say I get it done!!
If you’re a procrastinator like myself and you feel like you need to get things done. I challenge you to make a game plan for yourself! WRITE IT DOWN! Start small and work your way up to the big things. When you start to accomplish the small things you’ll stay motivated to keep going!
Be a better you for you! Start small, stay motivated, and keep pushin’!
I’ve come in contact with several people that were driven to the max, outgoing & willing to do anything to get to the top! Now, this was good to an extent but then there was me that felt as if I wasn’t driven enough. I’m the type of person that has always felt like what GOD has for me will always be for me. I sat back and thought well maybe I need to get whats for me! This was splendid and all but I had to realize that just because I wanted it didn’t mean that it was going to come on MY TERMS. In life, I feel like patience is the key to a lot of things. Instead of becoming discouraged about what’s not for you at that moment be thankful that GOD didn’t let you take that risk which could’ve brought more stress. I’ve always been the person to thank GOD even when bad things happen because I know what he has for me is even better than what I LOST. Being patient is a life hack and the reason I say this is because there have been several business opportunities that I wanted to become apart of or even start on my own. I talked myself out of it so many times because I just felt as if I was doing it to follow a trend. If you know me, you know that I’m my own person and I do things that I want to do not because anyone else is doing it. About a month ago someone that I trust came to me with this business opportunity. This time I felt an urge to get started; it was different from any other opportunity that was presented my way. I feel as if GOD guides me through life I’ll have a talk with him and within a few days, my answers are laid out in front of me. He gave me a “yes go for it” and I took the opportunity and ran with it!!! Here I am a 24-year-old woman, engaged, two baby boys, a blogger, student, and an entrepreneur! My message is whatever is coming to you it’s YOURS, and NO ONE can take that away from you! It’s YOURS, and it’s always been yours just never get discouraged when the timing isn’t right! You’ll drive yourself insane. Whatever it is that you want, it’s coming and even if it doesn’t what’s next will be even better!
Where do you see yourself and your blog 5 years from now?
– I see myself as a successful businesswoman with a business degree and also an entrepreneur. Hopefully, my blog turns out to be a success as well. Even if it doesn’t my purpose will still be the same to inspire others.
I published this post with this question in August of 2017. Everything that I listed is mine or will be mine in a few months, I just had to be patient!
“Find your Fire”, when I say this I mean find something that you are extremely passionate about, it really doesn’t matter what it may be! This was something that I struggled with, I knew what I was good at but I couldn’t seem to implement it with something that I really enjoyed. “Finding your Fire” has to be the most powerful things that someone can do and just think about how you’d feel if you didn’t know your GOD given purpose. I must say that it is one of the most frustrating things that a person could ever experience I knew I wanted to be great and I knew GOD put me here to be great, but I just couldn’t figure out what it was that I wanted to do. I really felt as if I was suffocating, I didn’t feel like me! Day after day I would try new things but I didn’t feel passionate about anything. Then one day I forgot what my mind said and actually listened to my heart! I did something that scared me I trusted my instincts and I started doing what I loved to do, which is motivating others and giving advice. My advice to you is if you’re struggling to find your purpose TRY EVERYTHING! Along the way, you may find something that you’re good at and I’m sure if you’re good at it you’ll be passionate about it. If that doesn’t work take some time to meditate and think about what you’re good at. Always remember if you don’t think your talent is coming to you as fast as it should PLEASE don’t doubt yourself or become too hard on yourself. Everything takes time and just because “this person” has found their fire and accomplishing things don’t feel discouraged, YOU CAN DO IT!!! It’s not a race and it’s NOT about how fast you finish but solely about who finishes the race PERIOD!
