I wanted everything to stay the same. Change is OK so long as it isn't painful. But, if we don't experience the pain of change, we won't push ourselves to go further. I shouldn't have fallen so deeply in love with my career that I neglected to keep pursuing my dreams full force - knowing that my career wasn't my destiny. It was only a training and prepping ground. While the advancement is very notable and necessary for my skills and experience, every ground we land on is not meant to be permanent, but a passageway.
I know that I was born to be an entrepreneur. And although I've proven to be successful in other areas of life, I have to keep reminding myself what my purpose is and keep my focus. I challenge you all to do the very same. Never give up on your dreams. No matter how far out of reach they may seem. Every step you take towards it you are one step closer.
We pour too much of our attention and motivation into the wrong areas and miss out on our opportunities to achieve and fulfill our goals and dreams. It's time for a check-up. Find out those areas in your life that are sucking your motivation and that steal your time and attention. Re-route your motivation and determination to those areas that will be fruitful and watch your vision unfold. Surround yourself with like minds and remove dead weights. Create an environment that will allow you to succeed.
