* Firstly I want to apologize for being MIA guys!!! I am soo sorry! Life has just been happening to a girl! I’ve been busy ‘Blooming where I’ve been planted’ but it’s a good kind of busy so I’m very grateful.*
Today I want to talk about something I see happening a lot, something I think we can all relate to.
How many times have you seen someone doing something you love, I’m talking that exact thing that you love. The exact dream that you think about each day and imagine yourself doing for a living. So here’s this person, they are living your exact dream and they’re making a living out of it. However, the problem is, maybe this person is not as good at this “thing” they’re doing and you know you could probably do an even better job than they’re currently doing.
But here’s the catch (you’re gonna hate me for this) the only difference between You and ‘That person’ is that THEY 👏🏾PUT 👏🏾THEMSELVES 👏🏾OUT 👏🏾THERE!!!! 👏🏾
Listen, there’s no point in harboring a talent or not going after your dreams but then dying a little inside for each day that goes by without you being any closer to your dreams. Because guess what, unless you stand up and show people – then no one will even know that you possess that talent. Eventually you will die and take your unused gift to the grave. Life is tough enough already, so believe me when I say there’s no one out there who’s walking around everyday hoping to stumble upon your talent. (Unless of course maybe you’re a Model in which case you could get Scouted) But otherwise You have to go out there and TAKE IT YOURSELF! You have to go out there and make it yours – against all odds!!! Swim against the tide if you have to. Sooner or later the current will flow in your favor.
There’s nothing as sad as seeing wasted talent. Someone is 18 and they say to themselves “I’m too shy, what will people say if I fail”, next thing you’re 58 and stuck in a dead end job. You’re miserable and maybe it’s now too late to try and get into your desired industry! And you wish you had just tried “back then.”
Before I sign off I’ll tell you Two things:
1) People will always laugh at things that seem foreign to them. It’s their personal way of dealing with their own mediocrity. Always remember that even if they laugh, they won’t laugh forever. After 2 minutes they’ll be laughing at the next thing to happen. That’s the nature of the human race. Do not be deterred by their opinions.
2) Time is the single most important thing in our lives. Time is inevitable. No matter how rich you are, you cannot pause time. Right now is the youngest you’ll ever be so do not waste another second. 1 year will turn into 2 years will turn into 10 years. Time goes by so quickly. You’ll look back in 10 years and wish you had just pursued that dream of yours.
And you know what the worst part is? The fact that the person we spoke about at the beginning 👆🏾 will at this point have 10+ years of experience and is now recognized as a leader in that industry – yet you knew you had the potential to do waaay better than them.
They put themselves out there. Do the same today, it’s not too late!
Till next post!
