When you have this vision of how your work is paying off , you might get overly excited. Once you start moving towards the greatness in your mind, there are many obstacles you have to overcome. Let me tell you something…There will always be negative people around. It’s their job, for real, it is. No that you know that, you have to be strong enough to continue on your path. Don’t get to hung up on what someone is telling you want you can’t do, what you’re not good at, or wondering why you are in a certain place. Let them wonder. Once you start worrying what someone else is thinking all the time you can lose your focus.
Stay Ready and Stay Focused. You’re the only one that can derail your plan. My kids know, you have to put in the work because nobody is just going to hand you something. There are a lot of people who feel they are in entitled or more worthy to get something. It could be because of a couple of things.
1. Born into it (Family paid the way)
2. Bought it (Money, will handle it)
3. Know someone who knows someone (Favor)
What’s for you is for you. No matter what sideline you are on, when it’s your time to shine you will step up. Timing is everything. Think about it this way. If you don’t work towards it, time will tell how much work you put in. This is no OLIVIA POPE situation, to be handled with some fast talking when you fall short of talent. Oh No, now the light is really on you.
Is it bright or dull? Because you cannot call a fixer for goals you failed to see through. Even the 1 of 3 types mention above eventually will have to handle their business. If you got it, you got it. Don’t use who you know to keep buying your way in situations. At some point calling in favors will no longer work. If it is meant to be it will be and no one can say otherwise. So don’t let the whispers of doubt stay around you.
Let me tell you something…Hard work pays off. Put in the work, work, work, work… (sorry, Rihanna moment). Come on, the song can stick in you head. There is always someone out there working to take your spot. If you’re number one you still have to work because the number 2, 3, 4, and so on is coming for you.
You may get tired, just don’t give up.
Until next time.
