I bought a binder back in January. A binder briefcase to hold all my ideas. I’m still job searching and waiting for the phone to ring, so while I’m waiting in the meantime, I thought it was best to use this time to continue to work on my projects and keep everything organized. A long with my binder I bought some loose-leaf paper, dividers and pencils. I was determined to organize my ideas and track my progress. I started to take my projects a little more seriously. I wasted so much time last year because I figured I would be working as soon as possible. I wish I would’ve invested more time in my projects then maybe I would be further along right now. It’s a lot of work and things to remember to do every day, so my binder keeps everything organized for me, so I won’t forget anything. In a previous blog I think I mentioned the importance of keeping your dreams or anything you want to do private. Always protect your dreams because some people can think you’re wasting your time and can try to discourage you from going for it. Yes, it could be a waste a time, but maybe it won’t be. You never know unless you try. I WANT to be successful. I HAVE to be successful, so I WILL be successful.
I must work hard and be consistent. It’s not easy, and sometimes it’s discouraging when you’re putting in a lot of work and the process is not going as fast as you hoped. It’s so easy to think negative when everything is uncertain. In those times you must hold on to your faith and keep going. Push harder and remember why you started this journey. How many times have you heard a person say that they can’t believe they made it, because they remember their times of struggle? I recently watched this video where this woman who I admire talked about how she always saw other people being successful and living their best lives and how she hoped and wished for the day where she finally made it to the success level that she wanted to be. She looked around at what she had finally accomplished and took in the moment. It was so inspiring because I’m currently hoping and wishing, and I can’t wait to reach that moment of success. I dream a lot and I picture where I want to be. I say to myself that one day I will be where I want to be, and I refuse to settle. When that moment comes, and I stand in my dream home I will look back at all the times where I felt absolutely lost and how I couldn’t get a handle on this thing called life. I will remember how stressed and worried I was, and how I kept going because I was determined to not settle for mediocrity. I knew in my heart that I was meant for so much more. I don’t know when things will shift, but I know it will eventually. In the meantime, I will continue to focus on the main goal and push through any doubt that pops into my head because that’s what separates the people who succeeds and the people who fall short. I will continue to post updates on my journey towards success.
