Read this before you quit

“Do something today that your future self will thank you for” I have been wondering what I’m doing with my life and what my next step will be ever since 2018 started. The crazy thing is that even though I know what I want and how to get there, sometimes I feel like I’m not seeing the results I want. There are times when I want to give up on pursuing my dreams but then I think about my job right now and living the rest of my life as an employee; it really depresses me. There is no way I can stop now. I ask myself, “Why am I so lazy? Why do I procrastinate so much? Do I know how much I could achieve if I stop quitting and just do? How will I feel next year this time?” Then, there are times of the month when I feel extremely tired; it’s ridiculous. It’s like I exhaust myself du...

Understanding yourself

“If you follow the classical pattern, you are understanding the routine, the tradition, the shadow – you are not understanding yourself.”  – Bruce Lee Many persons are at a conclusion that they know and understand themselves, but would you agree?  Every day is a learning experience, every day you learn something about yourself even when you aren’t aware.  There is no test you can take that will let you fully understand yourself within the day.  What you can do however, is take every situation thrown at you and choose one thing that you can imitate or discard of as it relates to your personality.  What do I mean?  Well let’s examine some scenarios.

Step out of your comfort zone

“Life begins at the end of your comfort zone” It’s sad when someone gives up on their dreams and more often than not, many of us throw in the towel for good way too early. Many times we end up in situations and we begin to bicker and get miserable forgetting one important point, we are the only ones that are holding ourselves back. There are many people right now that are intimidated by you because they know your potential, they see what you can become. Instead of discovering and capitalizing on our talent, we keep it in reserve until we lose it. After conducting my research I found that one in every five respondents stated that situations change and their dream of becoming the next big thing gets placed on the top of the bookshelf. “My child comes first.” “I'm getting ...

Opportunity for growth?

I am considered to be an alpha female so most times people automatically assume that my fierceness outside is reflected inside as well. The truth is, everyone deserves to be checked upon.  What inspired me to write this? Today, one of my colleagues told me that my supervisor openly stated to a manager in earshot of other colleagues that she is trying to get rid of me. I was shocked, not because of what she said because and if I am honest, I expected it but she must have said it loud enough for someone to hear and return the news to me. A million things ran through my head as even though I need to be out of that place, I have only begun my process of working on two major goals. In the midst of all of these thoughts, I was able to stop and think about it seriously for a m...
