So I understand that my previous post was a little…pessimistic . But to be honest it was written at a dark moment. I’m not saying that I still don’t stand by everything I’ve said before, however, I did think that I needed to make a redeeming post. It’s just basically me making up for the small, tiny,  microscopic ounce of hope that might of died when reading my earlier post.

After I finished writing my first post I realised that as much as everything I said was true, its still up to me to decide my future. I can still be in control of my own life, my own success, so why should I let them take that from me? They can take my time, and even my youth but they cannot take my integrity, my determination to achieve what i want. 

I sat down with my team last night and we did a little self assessment exercise. We wrote down everything that we believe will help to be successful and we came up with words like determination, focus, integrity, passion, patience etc, and we rated ourselves from 0-10 on each of those things. At first I was a little skeptical because everyone knows I hate talking about myself. But looking back at it I’m starting to think its almost healthy to take a look at yourself in the mirror every now and then and just really evaluate yourself. Self-awareness plays a very crucial role when it comes to self growth and being able to truly understand yourself. Self-acceptance is the next stage. But this isn’t a ‘How To Love Yourself’  article, im getting off topic, ha!

But in all seriousness, I really am looking forward for the future! Im so excited and I couldn’t keep it all to myself.

My point in all this is that as I was assessing myself, I noticed that I’m not really doing everything  I can to achieve my ultimate goals in life, to be honest im just sitting around complaining about all the things wrong with life instead of reminding myself with all the things going right, and all the things I should be thankful for. The truth is, we’re all screaming at the top of our lungs for a future we don’t really want to work for. Opportunity will not just come knocking on our door one day, that’s not how it works. We have to create our own luck, We have to hold on to our backbone and never allow anything stop us until we can finally look back and say “I did it.”. We call it BEASTMODE!!!!!

So keep smiling, the future is bright. J
