1. Create your own vibe, stop trying to fit in.
Life is tricky, baby, might as well stay in your own magic. Trust in yourself, you are the only one you can truly count on regardless of where you are in life right now.
Nobody knows your entire story but you. They might have heard pieces of it, but no one will ever know you the way you know yourself. Give yourself some time to think and re-think, you deserve it. At the end of the day, know that this is your journey, your body, your mind, and your spirit. Strive, Dig deep, own it and start doing things for you and by you.
2. Allow yourself to be a beginner; no one starts off being on top.
Sometimes what you are afraid doing is the very thing that will set you high.
Do not be afraid to start over. It is a brand new opportunity to rebuild what you truly want. Start from scratch, start with fear, start with your heart trembling, start with what ifs, start with uncertainties, start with a fire inside you and start with hands shaking. You will never know how far your hustle will lead you unless you take action now. Just get started and see what happens.
3. Don’t give up, try a little harder.
Life isn’t a race, but you do need to keep moving. Take baby steps every waking day because sometimes the smallest step in the right direction ends up being the biggest step of your life. Make sure you are moving toward your goals. Big challenges often prepare ordinary people for extraordinary success. Live life one day at a time, forget the stress, always smile or at least fake one. It does not matter how many times you’ve failed, it does not matter how many times you get disappointed, it does not matter how many times you’ve changed plans, and it does not matter how long you’ve been struggling to succeed. What matter most is the learning you’ve gained along the way; it will shape you to become what you’re supposed to be. You will thank your struggles one day.
4. Choose positivity starting today.
Eventually all things fall into place; until then, know that everything happens for a reason. Heal yourself. Find yourself. Know yourself. Correct yourself. Love yourself. Be yourself. Respect yourself.
Life is a balance. Be kind, but don’t let people abuse you. Trust, but do not be deceived. Be content, but never stop improving yourself.
Shout out to every brave soul who is trying to get their life together. Working on yourself is the hardest part of life. Keep up the burning desire, stay focused on the daily grind, and keep going no matter where you are. Success isn’t owned, it’s leased, and rent is due every single day.
Remember that God did not promise a life without pain, struggles, and hardships. He promise to give you strength to get through them. Just live and make it worthwhile.
