Recently, the singer Ciara was bashed (which baffles me) for telling women to #levelup when it comes to bettering themselves. She posted a video referring to women who may want to get married one day but aren’t exhibiting wife characteristics prior to getting “wifed up”. She was right and that can be applied to anything you want to achieve in life.
So, my car will be paid off this year (Whoo Hoo!). A few years ago, I told myself that I’d gift myself with a Mercedes once I paid my 07 Lexus off. Well, now that the time has almost come, I’d rather use that money to save and put towards debt and other things to grow my money, rather than wasting it. With that being said, I finally understand why it has taken me so long to get my business(es) together. I didn’t know how to handle my finances…at all! I would have NEVER been able to sustain a business with bad spending habits.
I say all of that to say this: Maybe you haven’t gotten that thing you desire because you haven’t changed your way of thinking yet. You haven’t grown in the areas needed to sustain that relationship or business or job you desire. There are certain qualities you HAVE to possess in order to make those things work. Take a moment and truly examine yourself. What are those things that you need to work on? Not just to get something but to make you better PERIOD. Write a list. Pros and Cons and be honest with yourself. Once you’re truly honest, then you can start working on those things and once you’ve mastered it, maybe those doors will open up for you.
Stay blessed. 🙂
