Spend Time Wisely

We have all experienced moments where we let fear, doubt, or just negative thinking get in the way of what we should really be doing. In those moments where you are complaining about things that aren’t going right, shift your focus to another area that you can work on. If you hit a roadblock, plan…

Focus on the Ending

I think we have all had our fair share of self-reflection sessions that end up being more negative than positive. We look at all the things we didn’t do that could’ve brought about a different outcome or at least placed you further ahead. I’ve gotten so down and upset about my previous thoughts and actions,…

Do What You Love

At one point I was working a job that I would dread going to. I lacked (or so I thought) the skills needed to progress into a higher position and I felt trapped and overwhelmed with work. I would literally be upset about doing the task that I was paid to do. It began to…

Approval

It’s taught when we’re younger to seek approval from parents or those in charge. Some of us have the tendency to carry that same mindset into adulthood with peers. Some of us fear judgement, rejection, disapproval from people whose opinions don’t matter or wish they had the courage to do the same. Seek your own…

Giving

Giving is something I grew up learning to do. I was taught at a young age to never expect anything in return or to do it for some form of acceptance. As I got older I made the mistake of assuming others would give to me as I gave to them. This left me with…

Attain Success

Good morning! So many times I shied away from going after certain opportunities due to what I thought was a lack of experience and a lack of education. In actuality, it was a lack of self-confidence and fear of rejection. The day I discovered that most people in higher positions were under-qualified and lacked the…

Patience

Why are we in such a rush to reach our goals, when we aren’t even sure if we’re moving in the right direction. Patience is a virtue. Would you eat your food before it was fully prepared? Don’t rush the process, you could be setting yourself up for failure. What is meant for you won’t…

Words

People can say things about me all day long that I know aren’t true and it never bothers me. It’s when I’m already doubtful or lacking confidence about something that the words tend to affect me more. Words can hurt but don’t let it change your mindset. They aren’t facts, they are merely opinions of…

Opinions

Sometimes we are so doubtful in ourselves that we don’t need others to do it. If you don’t believe in yourself you can’t expect others to see you any different. Remove negative thinking and self doubt. I can honestly say I am probably my biggest critic. The things I hate most or focus the most…

Just Coworkers or Friends: A Few Ways to Tell the Difference

I’ve had MANY jobs these past few years and I’ve met some great people. For a long time I felt that to make a connection with someone, was to make a friend. If my coworkers and I made a connection, got along, or even had similarities, it was the start of a friendship. It wasn’t…
