Hard Work Pays Off

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.

The Fine Line Between Self-Confidence & Cockiness.

I want to talk about loving yourself & why it’s important. I think that there is a fine line between being cocky and being confident and we need to understand the difference.

I believe that is important to love yourself fully and to feel okay with doing so. If you take time for yourself & learn to love YOU then you can also love others fully.

As stated by “psychcentral.com” Cocky people do have confidence, but it comes from a different place than true self-assurance. Arrogance Is one result of building self-esteem from outward sources such as financial privilege or constant praise. However, yank the external support system away and the persons sense of self worth goes with it.

It’s important to understand that there is absolutely nothing wrong with being confident & knowing your self worth. Being confident is “liking” more so “loving” the person you have become. I think that the difference between confidence & cockiness directly transpires from your mindset. Rather than thinking you’re better than everyone else, understand that you are beautiful..as is  each other person in this world.  If you don’t compare yourself to others and you focus on what makes YOU different & what makes YOU beautiful & unique then you too can start to love yourself.

Remember, being unique is what makes you beautiful. You are not a copy of anyone else & are special. Learn to love the things that make you different rather than trying to change them to conform to societies definition of “beautiful”
