One hard fact about success

🌼🌼🌼🌼🌼🌼🌼🌼🌼🌼🌼🌼🌼🌼🌼

“Success is a journey, not a destination.” I don’t know who said these words, but it was said and I believe it to be true. Like any other journey, it involves, speed bumps, detours, road blocks, dead ends and the list goes on and on. You get the picture, success is not an easy road.

When you go on a road trip, you do a lot of planning and you take a lot of essentials with you to keep you comfortable while you make this trip. You can’t take a road-trip without your road trip snacks, music, books to read, etc. The road to success is pretty much the same, you can’t take the journey without proper direction and motivation to keep you going.

Whatever it is, that keeps you going on that journey, is your motivation. Motivation defined, means the reasons for your actions, so essentially it is whatever gives you that drive, the push, that “ump” you get the gist. It can be anything and it can be anyone.

I find that stories can be very great at uplifting your spirits, while providing that well needed optimism, hope, positive outlook and just overall a great motivation.

The Colonel Sanders, Kentucky fried chicken story

Once, there was an older man, who was broke, living in a tiny house and owned a beat up car. He was living off of $99 social security checks. At 65 years of age, he decide things had to change. So he thought about what he had to offer. His friends raved about his chicken recipe. He decided that this was his best shot at making a change.

He left Kentucky and traveled to different states to try to sell his recipe. He told restaurant owners that he had a mouthwatering chicken recipe. He offered the recipe to them for free, just asking for a small percentage on the items sold. Sounds like a good deal, right?

Unfortunately, not to most of the restaurants. He heard NO over 1000 times. Even after all of those rejections, he didn’t give up. He believed his chicken recipe was something special. He got rejected 1009 times before he heard his first yes.

With that one success Colonel Hartland Sanders changed the way Americans eat chicken. Kentucky Fried Chicken, popularly known as KFC, was born.

Success is a journey, not a destination. What if the Colonel had stop trying after the heard no the first time, or even the second time. On your journey, there will be bumbs and hurdles to cross, but with the right motivation and determination you will get to that destination.

🌼Monday Motivation🌼

As cliche as it may sound, positive thinking, leads you to a positive outcome. It’s the beginning of a new work week, one that is filled with new possibilities. Don’t allow your mind to control you and tell you that you can’t or you won’t. Instead take control and start with some “positive thinking” think that you can, you must, you will. Do not give fear no room in your mind. Fill you thoughts with positive vibrations and take control of your destiny.

Don’t be pushed around by the fears in your mind. Be lead by the dreams in your heart.

A beautiful love story

Love is a beautiful thing

💕💕💕💕💕Eternal love 💕💕💕💕

One day at work, Amanda received a beautiful flower 🌺 bouquet. In it, she counted 11 flowers and found a short note in it. It was written in a beautiful lettering and said :

my love for you will last until the day the last flower in this 🌺 bouquet dies.”

The note was from her husband, who had gone on a business trip. Unsure what to make of this message, she went home in the evening and soaked the flowers with water. One day after another, the 🌺 flowers became a little less beautiful until they all died. All but one flower. This was the day when she realized that there was one artificial flower 🌺 in the bouquet that would last forever.

The sexy woman craze

In a world where body image is so important, it is good to love yourself for who you are. The new norm for us as women is to have that ” perfect body figure, ” causing women and misguided young girls to get the wrong idea of what a woman should look like.

I am not here to bash anyone or to judge. Gone were the days when plastic surgery was a secret. Today there are billboards everywhere advertising the different type of body shapes you can achieve if you choose them. Scroll through your social media feed on any given day and you will see a body that was beautifully and perfectly created by a plastic surgeon.

Again I have no problem with a person that chooses to ” get their body done.” Every one have a right to their personal preferences. My only hope is that, it is being done for the right reasons. We are in a culture that defines beauty to be something sexy. The media has allowed young girls to think that if they don’t boast a certain type of body figure then they are not beautiful. It seems we are now in a ” big but craze.” Women are spending thousands of dollars to get that desired size. The natural look is frowned upon and criticized. If you are fat, they bash you, if you are skinny they bash you. Social media has allowed people to perpetuate so much negativity. Causing women to feel the need to change their bodies just to fit in.

Post a picture of a fully clothed woman on social media and it will only get just a few views and likes. Post a picture with the same women showcasing her curves skimpily dressed and views are skyrocketed. That’s the age that we are living in. Social media has created the ” sexy craze.” This is where anything that is deemed to be “sexy” is viewed a lot and gets a lot of compliments.

Because of the way in which the ” sexy body image ” is being celebrated on social media. Women and young girls tend to lack that Confidence that is needed. My solution is that we have to find a way to develop that strong confidence. Know who you are, what you stand for. Learn to love yourself unconditionally, learn to be your own influencer. When you are strong and confident in who you are, nothing will be able to sway you to change to please the crowd.

Here are some words of encouragement to improve your day

There is no such thing as ” too much encouragement” you can never over do it. The good thing is that encouraging someone, doesn’t cost a penny. It seems as though we are in a culture where a lot of people either take pleasure in downplaying others or they take pleasure in spreading their negative opinions. Growing up i have always heard the saying if you have nothing good to say, then it’s best you say nothing.” That saying is something that can never be too old. I can not understand what is gained from being negative or how hard can it be for people to say ” good job” or ” keep going” Or ” you got this.” I personally get great pleasure in encouraging others, I want to win and definitely want you to win, I want us all to see victory.

Press on, you can do it, you got this, you will win, don’t ever be discouraged.

These words of encouragement from some very famous and successful people should do nothing but inspire you:

“A word of encouragement during failure is worth more than a hour of praise after success. ”

Unknown

“The best revenge is massive success.”

Frank Sinatra

” It’s time for us all to stand and cheer for the doer, the achiever – the one who recognizes the challenges and does something about it.”

Vince Lombardi

“Press on – nothing can take the place of persistence. Talent will not; nothing is more common than unsuccessful men with talent; Genius will not; unrewarded genius is almost a proverb. Education will not; the world is full of educated derelicts. Perseverance and determination alone are omnipotent .”

Calvin Coolidge

“It doesn’t matter who you are,where you come from. The ability to triumph, begins with you always.”

Oprah Winfrey

It doesn’t matter how slow you go, as long as you don’t stop”

Confucius

Believe you can and you are halfway there.”

Theodore Roosevelt

“Anything is possible if you’ve got enough nerve.”

J.K Rowling

Embrace uncertainty. Some of the most beautiful chapters in our lives won’t have a title until much later.”

Bob Goff

” When one door closes, another door opens; but we so often look so long and so regretfully upon the closed door, that we do not see the ones which open for us.”

Alexander Graham Bell
