Appreciate the smaller milestones in life. Whether its losing a few pounds, setting a new fitness regimen, attending AA meetings, dating, hanging out with friends, making new friends, chatting with friends on Messenger, finishing an assignment, applying for a new job, starting a new job, these are all examples of steps in the right direction. Never stop living life, and if you have to blog in between phases in life, that’s okay too. My new Alexa Rank puts my website in the top 147,126K Websites in the US! What was once a hobby has the potential to become a career choice later in life, if I so choose to guest post blog, get paid for writing and publish a book. Right now I’m focused on finishing my Dissertation and graduating from Law School, with an LLM Masters in Law, studying Money Laundering and AML Laws in the US and UK, Finance. The purpose of getting a Masters was to get a job, and the purpose of blogging was to keep going in spite of not having a job, just need to be sure to mention my experience on my resume, but not sure where to start. What was once a quotes campaign on Twitter and Instagram, has turned into a blog on Weebly, with updates to friends on Facebook and Twitter. Your blogging career evolves overtime, writing less on social media platforms, and writing more on your own on your own website. Eventually you guest post blog. I just joined Need to Live (Link: https://theneedtolive.com/?aff=36), and look forward to my first post on their website.
Goal setting, why is it so important to goal set? While there are many blogs to help you “reach your life’s goals”  we are not all bloggers, so how do we reach our potential, if we are just trying to get good at one thing in life, such as work or a relationship? [Step One] A lot of blogging requires you to first have a good “relationship you have with yourself.”  If you want to get a new job, if you want to guest post blog, and if you want to have a career doing what you love most, then you need to first improve your self-esteem. Its important to note that, “Self-esteem is enhanced when you set a goal that’s meaningful and important to you, and you follow through to make it happen.”  For example, I have been setting running goals for myself, exercising daily, this is to help lose weight, to be more presentable. When I was told at my last job, that I could lose a few pounds, put back on adderrall sent to a new doctor, I was mortified, not insulted, but used to being bossed around at that point in my life [an introvert], and subjected myself to that heartache of not feeling good enough. Don’t be insulted, get active, the more prepared you are in advance, and the better you feel about yourself, the less you look like a project to someone else, who is in need of fixing. [Step Two] Know Yourself and be sure to set “SMART [goals] (specific, measureable, attainable, relevant and time-bound) goals that motivate you and write them.”  [Step Three] Be sure to set mini goals and reward yourself along the way,  think about what needs to get done in order to achieve a bigger goal ie getting a job, or guest post blogging, and [Step Four] get prepared to achieve that goal, when the time comes, performing under pressure is so important to feeling good about yourself, not only are you able to rise to occasions, but you leave a lasting impression upon others, that you can be relied upon, and trusted during times of need, an important quality to have in the work force in todays setting. [Step 5] And lastly know your limits, pace yourself, don’t set goals that are too difficult to achieve or set your standards too high of yourself, that you fail to measure up, if you have been able to achieve in past, then pat yourself on the back, your personal history helps mold you into who you become in the future, learn to love yourself, recognize your mistakes in life, and move forward so that you can begin a new life, if you have not looked back, chances are if you move forward without correcting what has gone wrong in the past, will leave you feeling lost yet again, unsuccessful in any attempts to start a new job, relationship, or expand your skill set career wise, its okay to invest time in bettering yourself, you deserve that much!
