Day 80 of 365.
The past few weeks have been a true rollercoaster of emotions.
Life literally feels strange.
Yet despite how things may be, I’m ever so grateful.
For the first time in a long time, I feel like I’m back in my zone.
The secret? Focus.
Anything that doesn’t positively add to my life doesn’t get much time.
It’s not worth keeping things around you that reopen the wounds you’ve trying to heal either.
The path upward will reveal all the good stuff as long as you stay focused.
Focused on the things that uplift, encourage, strengthen, and empower you to be the best version of you, that you can possibly be.
It’s because things don’t go as we plan that allows us to find what should really be the plan.
There are two sides to every experience. The lessons we draw from each side impact the steps we take next.
Hence the importance and perspective to choose wisely.
This is what I’ve come to realize.
After all the things life has thrown at me, there must be a reason why I’m still here.
This curiosity lead me to start figuring out what I’ve dubbed as a minimum loveable brand.
But nearly four years after the first talk I gave on the topic, the meaning of what a minimum loveable brand is only recently became clear.
In short, a minimum loveable brand is one where inclusion and diversity is at the core. A personal brand that is heavily influenced by empathy, self awareness, and a passion of improving with rapid iterations.
Where the focus isn’t on anything else but discovering your creative power and how it can be used to create massive good.
The reality is this.
Life isn’t about being happy.
It’s about being whole.
The quicker you and I realize that, the quicker we’ll achieve the growth our souls seek.
See the lane. Walk in it and trust the process.
Stop comparing yourself to others.
Success isn’t a straight line, and definitely not something that happens without great sacrifice.
Embrace all the lights that appear on the dark roads that often exist in life.
Be the person that makes someone aim always upward.
