‘Just a little Girl with Big Dreams’ – Art by Joylene Lobo
I was dropping out of college. She had a 1.7 grade point average. I hope none of you can relate to a 1.7 GPA. I was sitting in my mother’s beauty salon. They still call it beauty salons now as they call it. Yes, I will sit in the beauty salon. I was sitting in my mother’s beauty salon and I look in the mirror and I see behind me this woman under the dryer. And every time I looked up, every time I looked up. She was looking at me.
Just look me in the eye I don’t know who she was and I said you know that she said that someone gives me a pen, gives me a pencil I have a prophecy March 27, 1975 she said boy you were going to travel the world and talk to millions of people.
Now, mind you, I have left the university and I am thinking of joining. The army. I didn’t know what I was going to do and she tells me that I’m going to travel the world and talk to millions of people. Well, I’ve traveled the world and I’ve talked to millions of people. But that’s not the most important thing, more important than what she taught me.
And what she said to me that day stayed with me since I protected myself. I have been directed I have been corrected BIG FAILURE That is correct Fail big, you only live once, so Are you passionate about what you are passionate about? Take risks professionally. Don’t be afraid to fail.
There is an old IQ test that had nine points AND had to draw five lines with a pencil within these nine points Without lifting the pencil, the only way to do it was to get out of the box. Don’t be afraid to get out of the box. Don’t be afraid to think outside the box, don’t be afraid to fail big to dream big, but remember goalless dreams. They’re just dreams and ultimately feed disappointment. So, have dreams but have goals, life goals, annual goals, daily monthly goals.
I try to get my cell phone every day and understand that to achieve these goals you must apply discipline and consistency. You must work on it every day. You must plan Every day, we only say that we do not plan to fail. Not planning hard work works, working really hard.
What do successful people do and in this? Remember just because you are doing much more Doesn’t mean you are doing much more. Remember just because you are doing much more Doesn’t mean ‘Are you getting much more? Done, don’t mistake movement for progress.
My mother said yes, yes. Oh, you’ve been running plays the whole time and never got anywhere, so keep trying to keep your goals moving forward. And something you want right? you can have it. Go claim it. Work hard to get it. When you receive it, keep someone up high. Teach one. Don’t just aspire to earn a living. Aim to make a difference.
If you think there’s a hack, a secret, a system or a quick path… Humans are smart, everybody will then do it. There’s no shortcut! How many people have been running their business for 5 years. If you’ve raised your hand, and you’re not crushing it, you’ve got a problem.
There’s a lot more to being an entrepreneur than putting it in your profile. Self-awareness and work ethic lead to happiness. People chase trends, not what they’re good at or like. “YES!” Not super complicated. People chasing the next fast thing.
We’re in a great era of makeup. Building a perfect foundation is how you build success. Do you know how many people right now are plotting or saving to buy a piece of clothing? Why? I’ll tell you why, they want to wear that piece of clothing, rock that handbag, have those sneakers, to show everybody else that they’re successful.
Are you in a shit spot? Are you in debt? You don’t like it? There’s gonna be no fast track to 1 million dollars that’s gonna fix that. It’s gonna be taking a step back and drinking a whole lot of humility not a French latte! When I made 53 lakhs a year, I had a 2 thousand dollar a month apartment.
Then I moved down to a 40 lakhs one, cause I wanted to save more money and I bought nothing for a decade. I went out zero times, I bought no clothes, I wore Liquor T-shirts, to work. I spent no money. Not super complicated. Save money and then do your thing. It’s about patience. If you’re not desperate to find the solution, if you’re unhappy, then don’t play.
It is time to change our collective perspectives. And we’ve absolutely liked judgement of others dictate our happiness. Make yourself happy, you’re making anybody happy if you’re not happy. I’m done with people saying like: “I’d rather cry in my Ferrari”
This is the stupidest statement of all time. So stupid! People say like that when they don’t realise what crying is. Depression is horrible, unhappiness is horrible. Nobody wants to cry in a Ferrari. I’d rather be happy as taking the bus.
A funny thing happens when that becomes your system, you start looking for things that make you happy. Funny things happen when you start doing things that make you happy: you start working more, harder… You become invigorated! You like it All of the sudden funny things happen…
