Yes, sometimes we think we can it all, but even those of us who can will be met with obstacles. How do you overcome them? How do we accomplish our goals? So who better to get advice from than a person who has been down the road and has shined? Here's Queen Latifah's advise and our take!
#1 Stay Strong
This can mean different things to different people. The idea of staying strong can mean being vulnerable when we have to, taking time out or a step back when we have to. It can also mean maintaining focus. Whatever your 'strong' is, be that.
#2 Decide What Your Priorities Are
Right on Queen! Yes, yes and yes. Deciding what our priorities are is deciding what are those things that contribute towards our goals. What are those things we need to invest energy into? When we don't prioritize we loose direction towards our goals, and we end up investing energy on the things that take away from accomplishing our goals. Like they say; either you're a plan or part of someone else's plan(something like that).
#3 Don't Limit Yourself
Hail to this too! Once we start with the limitations, we start reducing our potential. We will be very surprised on how much we can actually do, but it starts with believing in ourselves that we can do it until proven otherwise.
#4 Be Prepared
Success is connected with preparation for when opportunity knocks on the door. This means work on something everyday that contributes towards your goal.
#5 Surround Yourself with the Right People
Self-doubt is enough to drown in an obstacle. The second most detrimental action is being surrounded by negative energy. Choose wisely who you bring yourself around and who you share your goals with--not everyone has the best interest for you. Create a small circle of support. Look for people that have the qualities of striving. The ones working on accomplishing their goals too. So, as the Queen said, 'Cut the dead weight!'.
