If you have the perspective that everything in life that is bad is damaging to you, then your life will reflect that. But if you decide that all the bad stuff that has happened to you is valid, the trauma is valid, the things that should’ve never happened to you that happened to you and it has messed up your head, those are valid things but how you choose to view them is where the blessings come in to play.
“The bad things that happen sometimes set you up for greater success."
When people grow up with a rough childhood; they go one of two ways.
They either go far down the negative, toxic, life is terrible, or keep on perpetuating those bad things that have happened in life or they choose to fly and choose to learn that there’s a lesson in everything.
You cannot fake good intentions. Be yourself. Try not to copy anyone else and you’ll definitely enjoy yourself and stand out.
How to handle people that don’t like you?
Have a lot of self-appreciation. Appreciate who you are and where you’ve come from so nobody will ever make you feel inferior or anything less.
You just have to remind yourself that when people are being nasty about you, they’re not talking about you. When people are hating what you’re doing, they’re not talking about you. When people are tearing up your profession, they hate their profession. We have different morals, we have a different sense of value and that’s okay, If someone has a problem with that, it is not your problem anymore.
The only way to completely avoid the hate is to not look at it at all.
If people will focus more on choosing the moral high ground, there will be a lot more abundance and happiness coming into their lives.
When you feel like you’re spiraling out of control and there’s nowhere left to turn, your faith will get tested. You will get shoved for the higher power because nothing makes sense.
Never stop believing
You have got to realize that there is more to life than what you’re dealing with, a lot of stuff may seem that they are out of control but you’re actually, perfectly in control. Things are happening exactly how it is supposed to.
As soon as you have more faith, your life has a plan.
Eat some humble pie: it will teach you how to listen more, to slow down, to get still and that you can fly.
What makes a successful relationship?
Relationships are relationships
This is the same in a romantic relationship as it is in personal relationships as it is in professional relationships.
Communicate: It is very important to communicate. Most people never say what they actually think and just walk out and disappear.
People will work for a living but will die for a recognition
How to handle overwhelm?
Pick and choose what is for you. You do not have to say yes to everything that you’re not comfortable with.
Love your work. Be all in.
Choose to be overwhelmed in the job that you love than to be overwhelmed with not being able to pay your bills, not be able to go out whenever you want, and not afford even paying your own gas.
Stop demonizing the “overwhelmed” word.
TIP: Go through your week and write down and pay attention to all the things you’re doing then ask yourself “Did that have to be done by me?Realizing that by not taking the time to slow down and not seeing things from other people’s perspective, it is affecting a lot of things negatively.
If the answer is no, and you’re supposed to be the family’s breadwinner then stop. Delegate. Get help.
How to be patient?
Patience is an acquired skill set.
Realizing that by not taking the time to slow down and not seeing things from other people’s perspective, it is affecting a lot of things negatively.
Being patient is gained by personal growth and emotional intelligence is the number one trait of a leader.
Constantly elevate yourself
Most people hold on to what they have. It’s not the best they can do, but they hold on to it because they are so scared that they are going to lose it.
If they would just let go, they might just fly.
Ask yourself, what is it you’re holding on to? What is that thing that you know is limiting you and is holding you back? And what if you just let go? And you trust God, the universe, whatever you believe in has you, and that all of the work you’ve been putting into developing the person you’ve become or are going to become will allow you to fly.
It's INTENTION, not mechanics
It’s not how, it’s WHY.
Why is being messy and breaking things part of entrepreneurship?
