When I was younger I would tell myself I would work my ass off for anything that I felt passionate about. No matter how hard it got or how many battles I would have to overcome I told myself I would do it no questions asked because I was a solider and I was always told the saying God gives his hardest battles to his strongest soldiers.
I would always keep that in the back of my mind so if things got tough I would keep going because I was a fighter, an overcomer… a warrior.
As you get older we all face many responsibilities whether that be working a full time job to earn that paper or struggling to attend lecture because you know you need that 1st at the end or some may even be in my situation running a full time business, working part time (booo! I hate it!) and attending university. Taking all that into consideration, when your in a long term committed relationship, wanting to spend time with family and socialise with your girlies it can sometimes get too much and you will quickly find yourself drowning, Being 21 I can honestly say my patience has been tested the most this year, the more activities I involve myself in the less motivated I get to actually get to the finishing line (wherever that is).
Everyone wants to be great, we all want to be successful but some are willing to work harder than others. I am literally a workaholic and my close ones know I love working hard and accomplishing goals. The fear of being ‘bummy’ and being the average ‘South East Female’ frightens me because I am definitely not a statistic so I don’t see why I shouldn’t push myself to reach my full potential..
My personality is often labelled as motivated, outgoing, and driven to succeed by strangers, I love that people see all those positive aspects and make a judgement.. to be honest I have flaws like everyone else and as time goes by I still have a long way to go 💪🏽💅🏽
People keep telling me my mind works different to others and that my aura is something unique and I never believed it once.. Recently I’m starting to understand my mind processes things really quickly at once.. it used to feel like I was rushing the way I did things but I realised everyone’s different and they have their own individual positives and negatives about them..
I learned to adapt, if I didn’t I would find it hard to survive. I didn’t wanna end up going nowhere fast so I put all my energy into present which is building Neicey’s Jewels, studying and my job..
The fear of being average will forever scare me but I reckon it also keeps me on my toes to not fall behind on my responsibilities, I’ve got to go hard, as they say but also reward my self when I achieve one of my goals. As time’s gone by how I deal with daily tasks is I’ve got the attitude ”ill do it tomorrow” the fact that my brain has got comfortable knowing I will do it, I put off till last minute which is a MOTHER!
I am starting to train myself in doing things as they come, when you leave things till the last minute you usually forget you had to do it and move onto something else or you don’t end up doing it at all because it seems ‘long’ at the time’
I would also suggest you have friends that can uplift you and remind you that there is important moves to make rather then getting involved in necessary rubbish that has little or no relevance to you. My sisters will actually ask me ‘Shanice how’s Neicey’s Jewels’ and I would have to give them a break down of what I’ve been doing within the company and what still needs to be done.
Procrastination will always be a killer, expect people to sleep on you if they know you never get the job done. Whether that be working hard in university, at your job or your own business don’t ever put off what can be done now!
Keep going.. If your passionate about something you will not stop fighting until the end 👊🏽..
