How to skyrocket your success

Your stomach begins to rumble.

You noticed that you haven’t had anything to eat all date and hungry is an understatement at this point.  Of course, you check the refrigerator; and all that is in there is a piece of bacon, half empty jug of milk, and some coffee. So, you get in the car to head to a fast food spot.  There is only one problem.  You don’t have a taste for anything and no idea of what you want.

#TheStruggleIsReal

You may be experiencing the same feeling.  No, not driving around looking for something to eat.  But roaming aimlessly in life.  You hop to a new job, but it isn’t giving you the excitement that you are looking for.  You have no idea what to do with the blog that you just started.  And the business has been in the same place financially for over a year. 

And just like you don’t know what you want to eat; you may lack vision.  It is what you want to achieve or accomplish.  In conversations, I have found that many people give their attention to what they don’t want instead of deciding what they desire.  What happens is that you may find yourself feeling for more but if you fail to have a vision of where you want to go; you will spend a lot of energy going nowhere.

When you have a vision these are some of the benefits that will skyrocket your success.

“Nike Ain’t Worried About Reebok” : How to get ahead in a competitive world

It was the crack of dawn and I had awoke before my alarm went off. I tossed and turned but  I knew that getting the last hour of sleep was not going to happen.  So like every millennial I looked over my shoulder grabbed my phone and began to scroll through IG (@thefearhurlder if you don’t follow me already). 

Every once and a while I am able to find a great motivational quote to take my day to the next level.  There it was……posted in the weeeeeee hours of the morning “Nike ain’t worried about Reebok.”

Without a second look, I took a screenshot and sent it out to my friends accompanied with the routine good morning message.  It wasn’t a deep provoking, SAT word usage quote, but rather simple and straight to the point!  The world of business is filled with competition no matter where the company stands, someone is always looking for ways to claw to the top.  Nike in the athletic world is the MAN, they have found themselves the leader of most, if not all categories all these years, so of course other organizations such as Reebok have always scratched their coat tails. 

How does Nike continue to be great even after all of these years? 

Simple.......... they focus on NIKE.  They don’t sit around and wonder what Reebok is doing in Reebokland, but create ways to be better versions of themselves.  They literally just gave us a simple blueprint and instruction on success with 5 words.  But in the real world we go to class, work, and social media only to obsess our time with what the next woman is doing. Yes, I saidobsessed!

We consume our day in Groupme chats or work IM’s with conversations“......ya ole girl ain't posted nothing in 3 weeks, I wonder what she doing..” or “...how did she get that project, probably because she kisses the manager’s butt always in they face…” 

But Nike just gave the blueprint and it did not include paying attention to their competitors.  So today let’s take a look at what causes us to focus on others and how to shift the focus back to ourselves, in order to get ahead in this highly competitive world.
