Are You Ready Ready?!
So you feel and believe that 2019 is your year huh? You spoke it into existence and now you’re off trying to make it happen. What have you done so far to make it your year? What do you do on a DAILY basis to conquer this year? Because some of you believe that this hard work that most companies do is supposed to be handed to you. Going around asking people for their vendors for hair or clothing or whatever it is you’re trying to do is just a big slap in the face. Those people put in so much time and research, anger, tears, and self esteem to branch off and be the person you look up to today and you think they’re going to just hand over their business to you? You guys are going to drive people mad and then look crazy and wonder why they’re going off on you or won’t help. Aside that mini rant, there is a reason for it being said. Let’s wake up people. In case you didn’t notice, there are no free handouts. There’s a dollar for everything you’re going after and you won’t live that lavish comfortable dream if you’re out here looking for “free” handouts. You want this life, you do the work and make it a reality.
FOCUS! FOCUS! FOCUS!
For whatever reason, 2019 is a really big year, but it’s only big for those who have their goals and deadlines. One major key to achieving those goals and those deadlines is to remain focused. Understand that you’ve made a big mark for yourself this year so there’s no time to be lazy. It’s very easy to stray away from what you’re trying to do if you don’t have any discipline towards it. That also lets others know you were never really serious and who wants to be taken as a joke?! Keep your eyes on the prize.
All that Instagram bikini posing, stripper style shit may have worked for her, but sweetie you’re different. You know this and there’s absolutely nothing wrong with that. Being genuine at this point is a rare factor, so the fact that you’re doing what you love on top of monetizing it is EVERYTHING. Don’t do makeup tutorials when you know damn well you don’t know a lick about makeup or even like makeup. Don’t do anything because of a trend. People can tell when you’re not being genuine. Spare yourself.
STABILITY! YES MONEY!
Another major factor this year for everyone is money. You guys have the goal set with what you want to do and how you want to do it, but now your issue is that you don’t have the funds. You have to map out your financial goals. It may still require you to work that difficult 9-5 for that man with the hair piece for a little longer, but you’ll be happy with the outcome when you put in that two week notice and let them know you’re out of there. Some people still work for that little while but then forget what they were working for and get comfortable. Don’t think that just because you got that $1 raise you should stick it out even longer and push your plans back. Money does matter regardless of the years, but it’s time to get in your bag, like REALLY get in your bag and take those leaps of faith so that your bag can never go empty. Those leaps of faith can turn into several homes which is equity, cars, trips, anything your little heart could possibly desires, but you have to set the financial goal to do so.
The most important thing you have to do in order to truly succeed is keep faith and PRAY! Whichever God you choose to pray to, you do that, whichever God you show your true self to, whichever one that fills you with hope, pray to him. If you don’t believe in God and you prefer to do other things that gain you positivity and blessings, do it. To prepare for this battle and conquer your dreams, your sanity is everything. Don’t lose it!
