dedication

the pursuit...

IMG_8302.JPG

one thing i've learned about myself is that when i decide i want something or if i have a goal that i want to accomplish it consumes me. i focus on it and i go after it like crazy. understanding that i can't get everything that i want or accomplish every goal that i set but if i fall short it won't be because of lack of effort.

this past week was a perfect example of that. i won't get into the details yet but i realized that i wanted to do something that would require some help from people/companies that didn't even know i existed. everyday i made a point to reach out to at least three different outlets and now i seem to be in a position that far exceeds my initial goal.

yes, i worked hard towards my goal last week but the foundation was laid weeks/months/years ago. my grind is constant. i understand the importance of building and nurturing relationships and taking care of people.

 

patience + timing + faith

these three words come into play anytime you're working towards a dream or goal. at times it may seem like you're not getting anywhere or that you're constantly trekking uphill. most of the time success doesn't come easy or overnight, it takes sacrifice, dedication and a constant grind.

the key is to believe in yourself and trust the process... be patient.

things don't always happen when we want them to or when we think they should.  that doesn't mean that they won't, keep grinding and put yourself in position to take advantage of opportunities when the timing is right.

doubt can be your worst enemy. not from other people but from within. we have a tendency to hold ourselves back more often than not by second guessing ourselves. you have to believe in you, constantly challenge yourself to be a better you and have faith.
