Recently, I was close to getting another life changing opportunity and the deal didn’t go through. Although, I didn’t get the opportunity I kept telling myself I was extremely close and that was something to be grateful for. I am very hard on myself when it comes to being the second runner-up, but I had to appreciate where I am now in order to get to the next level.
I believe you should always want more of yourself, but sometimes when situations don’t go your way you feel as if you let yourself down. The message in every situation is to keep moving and not to look at your past, but look at your future and what you want!
We all have a list of things that could be better in our lives, but we have to always look at the positive side in life in order to keep accomplishing our goals. Toward the end of the year I do a self-evaluation to see what I accomplished for the year. Make sure to write a list of what you want (yearly), and start to put forth the effort every month and watch how you get what you want! I make a goals list along with my vision board, and I am amazed how the majority of my goals come to pass. Even if you think something is unattainable, I am encouraging you to write it down on a goals list.
Also, keep telling yourself what you want throughout the year. You will be amazed who comes to you and can help you closer to your dreams. Always remember you are where you’re supposed to be and know that you can make a way out of no way. I have to keep reminding myself that I can accomplish many things with effort. If I don’t, I start to focus on what’s not happening in my life instead of what I should make happen!
I want everyone reading this now to know that a life changing moment can happen in your life. Please just keep expecting it. Before I moved to Hollywood I had so many friends and family saying how I wouldn’t amount to anything. So, it’s up to you to remove the nay-sayers in your life and start knowing the purpose you have to fulfill. All my friends who said I couldn’t and family that say I wouldn’t are trapped in a mentality that restricts them from succeeding. Too many people nowadays say the word can’t when things seem down. I encourage you to say the words I will and watch how your life turns around.
In the meantime, all though I may have not gotten one opportunity I WILL soon!
