The End Goal

To live is to grow and to learn. Whether the outcome of your actions are good or bad there is always a lesson to be learned. Don’t be so quick to hold your head down and beat yourself up when you experience failures. Instead use your failures as stepping stones to get you to the next level. What you take away from it and how you apply it in the future is solely up to you. Strive to accomplish the goal and gain knowledge along the way. Find ways that force you to dig deeper and reach newer heights. It’s imperative not to remain in the same level of comfort that you’re accustomed to. Step out of that comfort zone, set new goals that seem impossible to reach and expand your horizons. Nothing comes to a dreamer but a dream so put your best foot forward and let’s put in the work! The possibilities are limitless.

The Best Things In Life Are Free (Wants vs Needs)

Sometimes we get caught up thinking that happiness is based upon the materialistic things we have in life. Yes it’s required for us to have the basic necessities in order to survive but don’t put too much emphasis on the things that you “want” and currently don’t have. Differentiating and fully understanding the significance of our wants and needs can be a constant battle. Often times the things we want aren’t the things we need and we can definitely do without. It is important to be grateful and thankful for all those things around you that add value to your life that are free. Stop stressing about the things that are appealing to the eye instead appreciate what you do have. When your season arrives it will consist of everything that’s meant for you. Until then embrace the now as things could be a lot worst.

Biggest Downfall

Learn to accept the fact that you play a major role in the reason why things aren’t going the way you want them to in your life. Your actions and how you carry yourself as an individual is reflective in the opportunities you receive and are blessed with. Always take into consideration your approach when faced with something that could be detrimental to your growth. Practice self control and be considerate of others at all times.

Change Your Thought Process

What we speak into the universe and over our lives often impacts us far greater than we imagine or care to admit for that matter. Let’s face it, we all have been a victims of our thoughts at some point or another. Personally if I train my mind to believe in the negative thoughts I will not push myself as hard as I would on a normal basis. This is simply because I have already ruled out the possibility of accomplishing the task at hand. Having that type of mentality is where the problem lies. We have to be cautious with the self-doubt we place within ourselves when it comes to the unfamiliarity of particular situations. We have to train our minds to believe that we are capable of achieving anything. A positive mindset often leads to a positive outcome in the end. Time to turn your “I can’t” into “I can and I will”

Trust The Process

Success doesn’t come without failure. Each journey is unique. It is our job to put in the work and do our best to prepare for any interruptions that may come along the way. Its not meant to be easy but with consistency and dedication it will be worth it. Believe in yourself and all of your abilities. If you fall down nine times get up ten. No one will take notice of what it takes for you to get to where you want to be, however it can be appreciated and celebrated by YOU. Despite the circumstances push through. Don’t give up and most certainly don’t give in. Your strength during the worst of times builds character so keep at it.

LADIES!!!

Everyone wants to be loved but at what cost? This post is for my ladies who give so much but receive so little in return at times. The purpose is to respect and be aware of your own self worth. Just to make a clear indication, this message will not apply to everyone.

Yes, I get it no one is perfect but that does not mean we have to accept degrading or harmful behavior. At some point in life we are all deserving of second chances but what happens when those second chances become repetitive? When it comes to men they will only put you through what you allow them to put you through. There will come a time when a person will run out of second chances. Your value and self respect should be your top priorities at all times. Never plead with someone to respect or value you. That’s a personal choice on their behalf.

Most importantly stop ignoring the obvious signs in hopes that things will improve. If you see potential, remember to take it for what it’s worth and not be misguided by it. You should never be in a situation where the weight of the world is on your shoulders alone with a significant other around.

Stay true to your standards and all that you stand for. Loving yourself enough to walk away from any relationship that no longer means you well is okay. I understand it becomes difficult when history is involved but there isn’t any reason you should accept less than what you deserve. Take time to heal and rebuild if needed. It’s imperative to love yourself more than you love the idea of being in a relationship.

The Time is Now

So what’s keeping you from stepping out on faith and going after certain things? Well we’ve all been guilty of saying it before “the timing isn’t right”. So when exactly is the time right? What factors are involved that gives you the comfort of saying ok now is the time?For me I can be quite the procrastinator when it comes to finalizing things and actually making decisions. I find myself pondering on ideas and creating unnecessary stress simply because I put too much emphasis on the different scenarios that can possibly take place. 90 percent of the time I delay a process that ends up being beneficial in the end. Whether I fail or succeed in trying something new there is a lesson to be learned. Trail and error gives us the ability to gain knowledge and have a better understanding for improvement purposes. Life is short. The tomorrow or the next time we so frequently speak of may never arrive. Therefore, the time is of the essence. Make sure you do your research and prepare for the movement you are attempting to make beforehand then go for it. You really do not have anything to lose. The time is NOW
