There’s tons of things that are fuc%#d
up in our world right now. I know I can speak for all of my friends that are 20 something’s when I say that I know you feel the pressure. You’re looking for the next bag, trying to keep up with lifestyles that you see on social media, working to get over a heartbreak, exhausting yourself to maintain a standard, limiting yourself to make others besides yourself proud — it goes on and on. I’m a young entrepreneur, optimist, lover and fighter — I’m still learning and I know virtually nothing. But what I do know is that the power of positivity, self-awareness and manifestation can propel you to be exactly where you want to be, where you’re meant to be, and who you WANT to be. FIND the positivity and the WIN in each day. Approach EVERYTHING with a smile. Share that energy — I promise that you’ll get it back and it will flourish throughout your life in other ways.
One of my favorite football coaches growing up pulled me aside one day and said “Aykie, you overthink way too much for a football player. You will do things that will be different than this game. But when you do them you need to control what you can control. It will always pay the best dividends.”
Now, when I experience a failure, I CONTROL how I respond. When I’ve experienced disappointment or heartbreak, I CONTROLLED my emotions and channeled them to serve as motivation. When I experience success, I CONTROL my initial excitement and figure out how I can sustain — How I can do more. Don’t focus on what others around you are doing and how it may look. Social is good for that. Focus on what YOU can CONTROL - Your attitude, your approach, the people you bring into your circle, your thoughts, your visions, and your decisions. ...And don’t forget to SMILE! 🙏🏾🚀
