Motivation Monday!

You should never let your circumstances depict your life or direction. There’s countless examples of people triumphing over adversity. To name a few, Jim Carrey used to be homeless, no one would sign Jay-Z, Steve Jobs got fired from his own company and you can google Oprah’s childhood to read about how bad she had it. (Also a great Forbes article on this topic found here) I’m sure a decent number of your reading this post don’t have it that bad, as I think it safe to guess that most of you are reading this on a $300+ iPhone with…

Motivation Monday!

They meaning me, because I’m definitly my own worst enemy. Either way, if you’re hard on yourself or you have people around you who tear you down, continue to set your goals and expectations high. Continue to work for everything you want. Also, get rid of anyone who says you can’t have something or says you’ll never get there. I CAN and I WILL, have everything I want.  Where there’s a will, there’s a way, you just have to figure out how to get there. And I mean, the journey’s the best part, am I right?! One day, when you’re…

I think it’s easy to get caught up in the thought that you need to keep trying at something that’s not working for you.

Just because you thought your dream was to be a doctor…

Always.  It’s so hard once someone’s been horrible to you to continue to be kind. There will always be that one jerk who has nothing nice to say, but the world doesn’t need more of them, it needs more of you being a kind person. You should never let someone walk all over you, or talk down to you, by all means stand up for yourself but don’t swap out meaness for meaness. There’s also people who are passive jerks. People who try to discredit your accomplishments. So you got a great new job out of college that’s paying you…

Motivation Monday!

You can either be friends with people who see the best in everything or the worst. Venting and complaining to your mom or girlfriends is one thing, being negitive is another. As a former hater of all things (circa 2003) I can tell you, it’s so much better to be positive. It becomes sad to choose to see only problems after a while, why would you want to live like that? Or live in a world where everything is a problem in your point on view. Change your thoughts and change your surroundings. If you have negitive friends or get…
