Life Lesson: Step back, reload

Even individuals that are excellent in their field need to step away and break now and then.  Make sure you rejuvenate yourself by stepping away from you work, project, or job and relax.  Take that time away to reflect on where you are and what adjustments need to be made to get where you need to be.  Come back from your hiatus renewed and more focused than ever.  It’s time to reload!

Life Lesson: Remove the blinders, be honest about who you are

You might be able to fool the world but when you look in the mirror you know who you are.  Don’t hype yourself up to be something you aren’t at the same time give yourself credit for legit achievements.  Be truthful without yourself on what you need to work on and start building yourself up from there.  Trying to build greatness on top of false pretenses will lead to crumbles in the foundation and the pressure of continuing to present a façade.

Life Lesson: Stop telling everyone your next move

Everyone doesn’t want to see you be successful.  In fact most of the time you share your goals and aspirations with people they congratulate and offer no help, laugh/put you down, and or don’t seem to react at all.  In extreme situations someone might get jealous and try to sabotage or copy your goal.  Therefore, stop telling everyone your next move for more likely than are not they aren’t going to increase the odds of you achieving it.

Life Lesson: Don’t dress in a way you don’t want to be treated

Dress for the position and life style you want.  Whether people admit it or not outward appearance leaves and impression and creates bias for how the world treats you.  More than likely if you go to restaurant or store in a suit versus casual attire you will be received differently.  Don’t dress in a way you don’t want to be treated.  If you want to be treated like a business professional don’t walk around in jeans and a hoodie.  As a society we need to do better at sticking to the rules of when to wear certain items.  An example is not wearing a hoodie or baggy clothes at your place of business.  The way you dress also affects the kind of people you attract.  Dress in a way that enhances your image.
