My messy hair can attest to my messy life these days. Tangled up in eight million things, I often feel that I’m spreading myself too thin, and yet I couldn’t be more motivated these days. Some struggle with the constant rush and yet that is when I’m at my best.
My messy hair…
With success, comes the negativity.
Why are we as humans, threatened at the sight of success, rather than it motivating us to reach ourselves? To push those boundaries and promote our own strengths rather than focusing on our weaknesses? Have you ever read the book “Strength Finders 2.0?” It’s a fascinating read that theorizes that we must build our lives according to our strengths rather than focusing on our weaknesses. If you’re a creative genius, why focus hours and hours on math? Chances are you’re probably not going to want to be a math teacher.
I consciously try to not get caught up in the comparison game, but I’m only human. I occasionally find myself wondering “Why can’t I be like her? Why can’t I have success like she has?” but why? We need to remind ourselves that “success” is only what other define it as, what you define it as. Remember that you may be someone else’s success story and yes, you’ve come so far!
A visible attribute of her stubborn spirit.
I’ve never been one to be told no. I hate having others rule my decisions and life choices. I’ve always had a stubborn head to achieve what I set my mind to. Of course there have been failures…many in fact. But I try to learn from them, some painfully. Do I come out alive and a better person for it? Always. Never let your failures be the end of your dreams. There is just another, better dream out there worth fighting for.
Her messy hair a visible attribute of her stubborn spirit. as she shakes it free, she smiles knowing wild is her favorite color.
