What do I have to say that the world needs to hear?
We are all born with a purpose, whether you believe it or not, it’s a fact. Someone one’s told me, gravity is there, whether I believe it or not, jump off a building and gravity is going to do its thing. My purpose might not be to save the world, but if I can have a positive influence on one person’s life, I’ll take it.
So, what do I have to say?
Anything is possible if you believe it and take a chance. God will not bring something in your life and not help you through it. We need to let go of the right to understand why. Believe and have faith in God’s plan. Even if the devil stepped in and interfered with His plan, God can bring your life back on track, if you let Him. If you told me 5 years ago, I will have my own business, I would think you’re crazy and living in a dream world. Today I have my own business and I’ve met people, made friends and have clients around the world.
Negativity will get you nowhere, so why not try being positive. This is difficult in the beginning, you’re going to try and be positive, but your mind is still going to push negative thoughts to your thinking. Another fact, you have power over your mind, push those negative thoughts aside and choose to think of something positive in every situation. It’s not going to be easy and it’s not going to happen overnight, but don’t give up. I was not born a positive person; I choose it every day. I experienced negative situations and couldn't see better days, but the moment I decided I didn’t want this life and I need to make a change, positive things started to happen. I do have “not so good days”, I allow myself to go through the emotions of being upset or angry or irritated, but I promise myself that tomorrow will be better.
Stop complaining and do something about it. Life happens, bad things happen, it’s how you deal with it that can elevate you to better things. When the unexpected happens, stop wasting time thinking about how it happened, why it happened, what you could have done different, how you are going to take revenge! Start thinking about solutions and how you are going to change the outcome, nobody is going to do it for you. Complaining doesn’t only have a negative effect on other people, it affects you. It might not be your job or your responsibility or your fault but taking charge of the situation will give you peace of mind.
There is no such thing as luck! Hard work, positive mindset and never giving up is how you make things happen. It might look like luck to other people, but they have no idea how hard you worked or how many times you have tried to get there. “Luck is what happens when preparation meets opportunity” - Oprah Winfrey.
Stop taking things personally, people only understand from their level of perception. Put yourself in the other person’s shoes and try to understand why they are saying or doing it their way. I have great people in my life, who will tell me when I’m being unreasonable or misunderstanding what was said and they will tell me how they understand the situation. Ask for another opinion and be open to that opinion. Communication is key and when someone says or do something that upsets you, don’t leave it and be miserable about it. Be open about your feelings, maybe there is truth in what they said, and you need to change something or maybe you misunderstood and jumped to the wrong conclusion. This is a daily exercise for me as I use to take everything personally, but now I make a constant choice to take myself out of the situation and look at the bigger picture. If it is meant to hurt you or upset you, you have the choice of being the better person and walking away, don’t go down to their level.
Maybe the world doesn’t need to hear this, and I just have to put it out there and tell you, this is who I am. I’m not perfect, but I always try to be the best that I can be.
