A while back I remember just going through the motions at work and through my week just so I can get to the weekend. Basically I was only living for the weekend, which is only two days out of the week for most people. TWO DAYS. You guys, this is crazy. I feel like this is something a lot of people go through but instead of coming up with a solution, people just complain about it. I know this is true because I have done the exact same thing!
I know a lot of you enjoy your job and if you do then that’s GREAT! That is so incredibly awesome that you got into the right career and just love every minute of your job. I hope that there are a lot of people out there like this! Unfortunately I know there’s a lot of people who don’t like their job. I think it’s important to sit back and wonder why. Maybe your job is mediocre and you are just numb to it now. I am here to tell you right now that life is wayyyyyy to short to be doing something you don’t LOVE! People say “well it pays the bills”… and although that may be true.. but what kind of life is that? Is that a fulfilling life? I agree that you have to start somewhere, I worked in retail for a long time but then I questioned what I was doing and why I was doing it. This is why I started Blogging and being a content creator instead. Was the transition easy? Definitely not. But will it be worth it in the end? Absolutely! I have had people ask.. “How do you have so many followers? Where do you get the time to make content?” I’m telling you guys right now that if you feel like you just don’t have time for your dreams then it isn’t going to happen for you. You have to MAKE time! If it is that important to you then you will come up with the time to make it happen.
Lets think about it.. if you love your job then you most likely won’t get into that work slump that others get into. If you don’t love your job right now but you are working towards your dream then there’s a chance you probably won’t feel that slump as much, because you are going after your dream.
The most important thing that can help you is your MINDSET. Mindset is so extremely important and I didn’t even realize this until another successful blogger said it to me. After I changed my mindset then things just started to fall into place. So – 1. Getting into the right mindset can change your whole outlook on things. Without this, it might be more difficult to succeed. Your mind is so extremely powerful!
2. Believing in yourself. If you don’t believe in yourself then who will? You need to believe in your dreams in order to make them a reality. None of this..”well someday..maybe.. when I have time.” -this is not going to get you anywhere. When I recently visited my home town someone I knew mentioned that they watch my husband and I on social media and see that we have traveled out of the country. So I said well you know life is just too short. Then they said yeah I will probably just be stuck in this town forever. GUYS this is not ok! Unless if you are completely content with being there then yes that is ok, but if you have big dreams and you want to travel and see the world then you cannot be telling yourself these things.
3.Patience. Your dream might not happen right away and that is OK! Things like this can take time especially if you are trying to do it on your own! Please do not give up if you aren’t seeing results right away. Great things take time and what is a better feeling than knowing you took the time to make your dream a reality all on your own? I keep getting emails from modeling agencies saying they want to sign with me if I pay a certain amount for them to manage me. I turned them down, do you know why? Sure if I took their offer I could be modeling and going to fashion shows but If I am patient then I can accomplish this over time, when I feel like im ready. Plus I’m being smart and saving money. That money I’m saving can be put towards traveling.
4. When in doubt, seek other successful people for help. It is more than ok to ask for help. Some people might not answer you and help you which will force you to figure it out on your own or some people will help you and set you up with the tools you need. Personally, I like finding things out on my own. Your dream doesn’t come with an instruction manual which might seem freaky but honestly its the opposite! This is the learning curve, this is how you learn about the business you are getting into.
There is nothing I love more than encouraging others to go after their dreams! If you have any questions or comments let me know!
