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’!
“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!
Have you ever been afraid to take a risk or try something new all because you felt as if it would go wrong? Well, you aren’t alone! I’m quite sure several people have been in the same situation. I’ve also been in this situation quite a few times, but I had to remind myself that I had to start somewhere! At the end of the day if we don’t take risks or try new things we’re still at a standstill. Which means if you don’t try, you’re still at your starting point. You have to start somewhere whether it fails or not! Look on the bright side, some of the richest people in the world had to take a risk! Many life situations are extremely risky but if we focus on the things that could go wrong, we train our minds to do that as well. No matter what the situation may be, take that job, start that business, join that organization, whatever you’re afraid of DO IT!!!!!!! The hardest thing about doing anything is actually STARTING once you’ve started the only way to go is UP!!! Whats the worse that could happen? Keep in mind that if you were totally happy with your situation you wouldn’t even be thinking about changing it! There is a reason why you’re trying to find something new. Always focus on the present and stop wondering about what may happen in the future. The fear of the future can stop you from moving forward in your life. MOST IMPORTANTLY NEVER ALLOW FEAR TO KEEP YOU STUCK!!!
