I Had a conversation with someone today in which we spoke about our goals and how to be successful..this person was adamant that hard work doesn’t ALWAYS pay off in the end. They told me that some people work themselves to the bone for years and it just never seems to pay off..
Its simple you guys, I responded by telling them that the reason it didn’t pay off was because they had no purpose, they continued to do the same thing over and over again expecting different results & they never saw success because they were comfortable consistently being average.
There are people in this world that work for years within a company but they never progress and they stay at the same level.. I genuinely cannot comprehend why anyone would want to settle and accept average. It’s so important to continue to grow in whatever field that you’re in and be the best at what you do! I understand not everyone has the same mentality as I do but why go through the motions and be like everyone else in this world?
Know WHY you do what you do & exactly what you want to achieve.. Don’t get stuck in the same routine leading to no where.
Today while on my lunch at work I walked down the street to a local coffee shop to buy myself a coffee. When I got to the counter to pay the £1.10 for my drink on my card – as I didn’t have any change on me, the woman behind the till told me that I needed to spend £4.00 minimum in order to serve me using the card machine. I understood, so I took a step out of line to figure out what else I wanted to have with my drink.. As I was doing so a lady ahead of me turned and said here hunny, let me get that coffee for you! I was so shocked at her random act of kindness that I thought I heard her wrong. I told her it was ok and that I had the money but she insisted on buying my drink for me & wouldn’t take no for an answer.I chatted to the kind woman for a few moments and then I gave her my biggest bear hug and she went on her way. It’s funny to think that something as little as buying a coffee for a random stranger can cause such joy, and its so refreshing to know that there are still people in this world like her.
I deeply believe in Karma, good karma & bad karma. I believe that the choices we make and the way that we treat others on a daily basis directly comes back to us in one way or another. No one is perfect but I choose to live my life treating others with kindness and respect whether or not they reciprocate it back to me. The reason I choose to think & act this way is because I believe that deep down, if you always do your best to treat others as you would like to be treated good karma will eventually find its way back to you, like it did today for me in the coffee shop.
I think we have all been in a situation, perhaps in work, relationships, or just our daily live’s where someone we are dealing with has an attitude towards you that is angry or negative. Instead of mirroring the actions of others I think it is important to ignore the negativity & for this one simple fact: When someone hurts you or treats you in an ill manor, I believe that the reason they say or do these things, whether intentional or not is a direct reflection on the way that they feel about themselves. I’ve been in situations more times than I can count where regardless of how calm and collected I am, an individual is choosing to take their anger out on me. Its important to remember to let their negativity fall off of you like a raindrops do to an umbrella. No one can hurt you without your consent and having the power to ground yourself & remain calm in stressful situations will have such a positive effect on your life. ❤
