5 Lessons I’ve learned in the 4 years since I quit my job

  |   Uncategorized   |   5 Comments

1. When creating your own lane: People are not going to like you. And it has nothing to do with something you did to them, but more so of what you chose to do with your life. When you make a choice to create your own lane or do something bigger than yourself, it requires a level of courage that most people wish they possessed. And although, we all have the capacity to do it, we all don’t do it. So when people see you, you become a reflection of everything they aren’t and instead acknowledging their own feeling of inadequacy they project that energy towards you. Don’t sweat it.

2. When starting a business: There is so much work to be done before the money comes. Like so much! You gotta more than love what you do. Your vision for your life and business really has to be in the depths of your DNA.

3. Life in general: There will be seeds you plant that won’t start growing until years later. Don’t fret, there is a reason for the delay whether it be because you need to personally develop or the universe needs to conspire (technology, professional relationships etc) to bring the type of water needed to really water it.

4. When you won’t settle for GOOD and want to be GREAT: The road is LONELY as HELL. I’m sorry to break it to you, but it just is. Society makes it so easy and comfortable for people who just want to be okay. In time you will realize that, you’re always learning new ways to improve, whether that be reading, taking classes, attending webinars or seeking out experiences that teach you or move you. Your “overachiever” energy can only be handled by a certain type of person because like I mentioned before people don’t like to be around people that remind them of what they aren’t or aren’t doing. However, the relationships you are able to maintain will be the most meaningful.

5. The foundation to it all:It’s hard for me to believe you can navigate a life void of a 9-5 without some type of spiritual moral compass. The sacrifices you need to make to continue your journey, the obstacles you have to overcome at every turn, and the stress you have to endure can’t possibly be done without some type of higher being holding you down. God be holding me DOWN!

    Love it Lo!!! 😍😍😍
    You keep me soooo inspired & I love the honest & genuine energy! It is very weird indeed when you leave HU & realize that ppl really don’t want to let you be great! Many don’t jump to celebrate the brilliance of others, but rather covet it.

    It’s awkward to be the lone person who sees shapes & colors, while others only see lines, distance & gray… I appreciate you for being so authentic & fearless. We have to keep pushing each other to be Trail Blazers. You are amazing!

    Your first lesson mentioned really hit home for me. I’ve lost (and gained) friendships because of all that you’ve said. It’s amazing how instead of focusing on attending to their feeling of inadequacy, they continue to shun it when that’s definitely does more harm than good. Nowadays, I’m no longer surprised when I find out that people who say they are for me, aren’t really for me.

    Continue doing what you’re doing. You are truly an inspiration, hun!
