Hello, Cameron here. MAN, where to start with 2017? it’s only been about 3 months in and I’ve lost a job, figured out what I want to do in life, lost and replaced my wallet and cards inside to name a few things. Hell, while writing this post i’m trying to figure out how I will sustain myself. There is one..or rather 3 things that not only make these huge life changes easier to cope with, but also enable you to look further into yourself to get down to the nitty-gritty on changing the “bad”, thus making way for a new and improved you.
Patience is quite honestly the SINGLE most important skill to learn in life, as it ultimately leads to a better understanding of yourself, as well as a better understanding of the world we live in. If you are anything like I’ve been, You probably have a short fuse and can go off at any little irritation or annoyance that comes up. This isn’t good if you are trying to progress in your life journey. The universe has a thing for messing with those with impatience, by throwing more frequent, little menial tasks and obstacles their way. Now within those tasks and bumps in the road, we can use them and actually learn quite a few life lessons just from them alone. A good example is how I learned how to save and manage money better. I was so spend happy before hand, and I ended up wasting soooo much money on collectible figurines, clothes, video games, and other shit of the sorts. Once upon learning about the value of patience, I was able to change my perspective on my priorities and my perspective on perseverance. if you want a bit more insight on patience, DeAndre and I talk about it and go a bit deeper on the skill on one of our previous entries. You can check that post out here.
#2. A plan
I’m not talking about some quickie you came up with while high as shit no chasing some Hennessy. What i’m speaking of is a thought-out game plan. This can be a plan for a big life changing decision, a plan for a business, or even a plan for changing the world. The bottom line is that if you don’t properly formulate something that has an aim, a direction… you’ll be stuck, lost, and sad. Very. Sad. If you come up with the proper plan for the change or situation at hand, you reassure yourself that what you are doing will work out (for the most part) in your favor. You also give yourself confidence that your decision is backed up by a solid foundation. Perhaps the biggest benefit from having a solid plan, is that you take a load of stress, anxiety, or tenseness away from whatever the plan is based around. You can work towards your goal with a nice little structure that you set up! Some of the best ideas in existence have come to be through an elaborate plan to make those concepts a reality. Remember, YOU ALL are just as capable as anyone else at making your dreams come true. Plan accordingly, and kick some ass.
This one is BIGTIME something that I’ve learned alot about. Through trial and error, I have learned that for anything to be successful you need to be consistent. This means no matter what, you keep at that goal, side grind, hustle, whatever you may be working on. The more effort and time you invest into your own pursuit, the more likely you are to be successful and happy. Not only are you making progress and advancing in life, you are also forming good habits as well as positive habitual thinking. The second you start to feel lazy about your goal/pursuit, you will most likely sit on things you need to be improving and working on. If you get to that point, it’s always good to take a step back to see where you’re going and where you have come. That way, you avoid negative habitual mindsets and thinking, while even inspiring & giving yourself some good ol’ motivation! The choice is all up to you. No one can force you to be consistent, however from my experience consistency is the key to accomplishing anything!
These are 3 traits that can help you spiritually, mentally, or both. no matter where you apply these 3 traits, you will advance in your pursuit, no doubt. I do want to add in however, that I urge everyone and anyone to research these concepts. With research comes a better and clearer understanding! These traits are what I’ve learned so far this year, 2017. I hope that whomever may be reading this got some useful information, and that this has helped you advance, be it yourself, your pursuit or both! Peace out!
