Lately I have been battling with many things I guess other 24 year olds are dealing with – trying to pursue my dreams while also trying to get my life together. I am always telling myself to never stop learning, never stop growing. Constantly trying to find new ways to brand myself as well as my business. While growing and maturing, I have learned that it is often normal for entrepreneurs to feel the way I have been feeling the past few months. Some friendships I have lost, some gained. Also, a lot of negative feedback but an equal amount of positivity. It is easy to look at other people around you and see how comfortable they are and remain complacent. I however, am not willing to settle for an unhappy life. The thought of what my future holds has been filling my mind lately. Wondering how I will attain a life of fulfillment or if it will even happen at all.
Which brings me to a statement that has lingered in my head like a new song you keep on repeat. While taking a real estate course, the teacher stated “Invest in yourself, you will get the best return.” I loved how she put a play onto those words. But what I loved even more was that is was one of the most genuine and factual statements that anyone has ever told me. Ever since then, I have been wondering if I will gain the most fulfillment by working my way up through a company or pursuing my true passion and becoming an entrepreneur. I know this may sound crazy to some but I just don’t think that working a 9-5 is normal for everyone.
I’m saying all of this to say…I think its time I start investing in myself. Anything I start, I must complete. Every goal I set, I must achieve it. Any friendsips I have lost, were for a reason. I think the hardest thing right now is dealing with failure and sometimes feeling alone.
