Be sassy, be bold, be an empowered woman!
There comes a time when you will have to make some hard decisions to ensure your success. You might have to make changes in your circle and it may cost you those friends who refuse to grow and are content to settle for mediocrity. It’s hard to lose friendships but you must understand if you are to rise then you cannot align yourself with those who are content to settle where they are. It might not be possible to change the people around you but you can choose who you wish to be around.
Everyone has Something to Offer
Create a vision for your life and do not allow your environment, the people around you or past circumstance determine how you execute your dream. Stay focused. Every so often, rather than staying focused on what is important people allow naysayers to cause them to question their judgment and as a result lose confidence. One key element in achieving success is believing that it is possible. We all have something to offer the world. Your contribution is important. Challenge yourself to reach for the stars.
If you want something bad enough you must keep trying until you get it right. Even when it gets frustrating keeping going. You will never know how close you are to success if you give up halfway on the journey.
Some people are quick to form opinions without trying to get to know you. Perception is often not what it appears. A person can put on a public show to get attention but might not necessarily be genuine as they appear to be. Before forming judgment get to know the person. Some will let you in easily, others take time to open up. Sometimes the way you think about someone isn’t they way they really are when you get to know the individual.
Life may give you a million reasons to give up. But the determination to fulfill your true purpose is the fuel which will help you to defeat the odds. You will come across people who will frustrate your vision and make you wonder if it’s worth it. Always rememer it is about you and not them. The key to get to where you want to be is to start that journey. With hard work and determination you will reach your destination.
If you are content with where you are in life, chances are you won't strive for anything better. Always be prepared to grow and to live your best life possible. Don't be afraid to shine.
Engage in Positive Thinking
You become what you think, so if you engage in only negative thinking, you will draw negative energy and attract negative things in your life. Nothing is beyond the reach of the man determined to rise above the odds stacked against him. The people who believes they can attain great height are more likely to see their dreams become a reality. Likewise if you daily bemoan the fact that you are poor, unlucky, and has no hope of of things getting better. You will remain where you are wallowing in self-pity. No matter how beaten down you feel, tell yourself it will get better. Know that where you are is not your final destination. There is a wise quote, which says, “Be careful what you set your heart upon because it will surely be yours.” Set your heart on the things that will elevate you. Dream big and aim high.
“God never said that we wouldn’t have unfair situations, that we wouldn’t experience loss. But He promised if we would stay in faith, He would restore everything that was stolen.”
