Hello lovely people! I've been watching a lot of motivational TED Talks on YouTube lately, and it has me thinking about so many things. For as long as I can remember, I have dreamed of owning my own business. The motivational videos are really making me want to go ahead and pursue my dreams. Many people in the world settle for a mediocre job due to fear of failing, but with great risk comes great reward. Many also have a tendency to compare their situation to those that are successful to make excuses as to why they can't make it. I truly believe that if someone wants something bad enough, they will MAKE a way. It's not easy, and there will be moments when you'll want to give up, but that's normal and apart of the journey. What many lack is passion and resilience to keep going. Each day make a small goal for yourself towards your dream to keep it alive. No matter how insignificant it may seem, do it. Most importantly, you'll never know unless you try.
I want to set an example for my future children that they will admire. I want them to see how hard I worked and the successes I made in spite of my circumstances. I want my family to be proud of me, and I want to proud of myself.
I know this all sounds a bit mushy, but I believe everything begins with a mindset. What you think you become. If you want to become a writer, imagine yourself writing and publishing your favorite pieces for the world. If you want to be a chef, imagine yourself preparing meals at a five star restaurant.
I hope this encourage someones to at least consider pursuing their dream.
