Today a light went off in my head and I realized, I have a habit, I didn’t know I had.
Whats the habit?
I realized that before I start working on any given project, I like to read articles, quotes and search the internet for information on successful business women..No joke..I’m not lying.
How did I realize this?
I was searching Kimora Lee Simmons website and I came across an article about her daily life from 9-5. She said that she likes to read certain magazines everyday. Then it set off a switch in my mind. That’s when I realized what I was doing. I realized that I was surfing the net and reading about women who are doing well for themselves. And I also notice that I was doing this before I started a major task. Then I back tracked and realized that I do this 95% of the time before I start doing something.
I like this habit, its one that inspires me to learn, and be all that I can be, and that’s not a bad thing at all.
“Treat yourself the way you want others to treat you”
“let your surroundings be a reflection of who you are on the inside”
When things could be so simple why do we complicate things..
More and more I’ve been experiencing life situations that could be easily solved, but because egos get in the way, the situation becomes complex or it gets out of hand.
A question that I have decided to ask myself is, “How could this be solved and am I allowing my ego to get in the way of solving it?”
Really, Really think about the question.
Sometimes we know it’s the ego, but refuse to do anything about it, some people are content being driven by an over sized ego, or being trapped in a bubble called “It’s all about me”
Don’t get me wrong, I’m all about having an alter ego on stage..but thats where it stays on stage.
Life is complex at times, but I’ve come to realize that it is human behaviour that makes it more complex than it is or should be.
The 1st time I came across this quote, I was like wow, what a straight forward way to put it, yes I like this quote.
After reading it, I completely forgot where to find it, so special thanks to Kendra Hughes for finding the quote for me. Also we are not sure who said it, Marilyn Monroe or Laurel Thatcher Ulrich. So credit goes to both of them.
I think there is a lot to think about in this quote.
For me it means, to be silent, to fit in the norm wont get me anywhere. It means take a stand for who you are, and what you want to do, and do it. Be BOLD about it, why be quiet.
Well that’s my thought, I know not everyone will agree. But that’s OK, lets agree not to agree.
Don’t allow anyone to suppress your dreams…
Be Strong, Rise up and Soar…
