Hello September! Just 3 more months until we welcome 2017, are you ready? It’s check in time with those goals we set when the new year rung in. Are you keeping yourself motivated and encouraged? Start reflecting on your year and thinking of what you want to achieve in the new year. Hopefully this year has treated you well and you are in happy spirits on this wonderful Friday!
If you’re like me then your year has been one for the books. I had so many up and down moments, I experienced new relationships and ended a few. I graduated college, turned 22, and self-published two books. I found myself job hopping, upset, excited, determined, stressed, broke, I may have went through every emotion possible. But right now, at this very moment what I’m feeling can only be described as genuine happiness. I may not be where I want to be but I am well on my way. Paths haven’t been paved for me and many times I found myself trying to figure out which way to go so I carved my own. If there isn’t a way, I make one. There are no excuses, I have goals I plan to execute and pinnacles I plan to reach so I’m doing what I do best which is applying myself and planning strategically. I feel things falling into place in all aspects of my life and for that I can only be grateful. I held myself accountable and took control over my life this year. At times I encountered some tough situations where I wanted to give up but I knew I did not have not one ‘quitting bone’ in my body. So today, I stand here ready to conquer the world despite the list of things I can complain about. Complaining never got me anywhere so I stopped dwelling on all the wrong things in my life and wrote up various plans to turn those wrongs into rights.
We have stepped foot into a new month which means a chance for new beginnings, new outlooks, and new attitudes. As I always say when you change your mind you change your life so nothing should be holding you back today, especially not your thoughts. Whatever you want devise a plan to get it, devise a ton of plans, some that will fail and some that will succeed. Dot every “i” and cross every “t” the time is now. We make too many excuses for ourselves, there may be no tomorrow or no later for you just keep that in mind. What are you striving for in life and what are you REALLY doing to ensure that you get there besides saying that you are? When those words call for action what do you have to show for?
Let’s get our minds right and prepared for the new year. The summer is over therefore so is playtime for many. If you’re in school it’s grind time lets grab those A’s. If you’re just working like me lets secure the bag! Never settle, never stop planning. Don’t be afraid to ask for help or guidance if you need it. Success is in the mind, therefore we all should be succeeding. As we all wrap up our weeks take notice and be grateful for all that you have achieved thus far. Take the time to give yourself credit and pat yourself on the back, you deserve it.
Thanks for reading, Be Blessed & Stay Humble.
