A Millionaire’s Mindset

 

I had this idea to write about this particular topic for some time now and I'm glad today it can finally be put out on paper.

In the past few months I have seen friends complete their final year bachelor's degree, some have started working and some are in the midst of pursuing their internship.

However, what most young graduates or should I put it this way, potential employees have in common, is the wrong mindset.

Let me enlighten you.

Call it dreams, we all have them. To work for a notable company, earn and live sustainably

Many of us know what we want, but not many know the little things we need to do, to path our way to fulfil them

Being a really smart student does not always mean you are entitled to a secure high-end job, nor does being a rich kid from a wealthy family guarantee you a place at your dad's company. Lastly, being underprivileged or incapable does not mean you cannot achieve greatness.

Its all about your mindset. Read that last sentence again.

Up until now, you might probably think "This girl probably reads a lot of motivational books". Well yes I do but reading is one thing and understanding, is another.

The problem with us is we keep complaining. We complain about every single thing! Think about it.

But, don't take this the other way. We all complain! Even myself.


A wrong mindset starts by choice.

Here are a few examples:

1) When you choose to portray how ungrateful you are and pour it out on social media platforms, especially on LinkedIn! (If you are on LinkedIn and you do this, then you need a serious reality check)

2) When you regret taking up a particular coursewhen others don't even have the opportunity for an education

3) When you complain about how boring and toughyour job is when others are jobless

4) When you make up excuses and deny yourself opportunities

5) When you forget that 'Rome was never built in a day'

Think about it. All these scenarios lead back to you.

______________________________________________________________________

When you speak to a group of people, its all you. People remember what you say when you least expect it.

Your reputation is the most profound thing you should nourish and grow

Instead of complaining and what not, why not conserve your energy and channel it positively to shape your future?

All you need is an idea, no matter right or wrong, big or small.

But first. A right mindset.

Why We Hurt The People We Love Most

 

It is the most hardest thing to explain and also the worst feeling to feel as a human being. Hurting the people we love. Be it family, friends or lovers.

It is somehow an act that occurs unwillingly and unnoticed until the damage is done. We somehow know how certain events will end in our head. Sometimes an inner voice says stop, or things will get worse. Sometimes the inner voice tells you exactly what you shouldn't do but you never listen. There exists an urging pang inside of us to take the lunge. Then we realise only when its too late.

Often after we hurt the people we love we regret it. We regret saying things we shouldn't of said, we regret picking fights, sometimes we regret even starting a conversation but the worst part is we feel unworthy of them. Unworthy to be loved.

Love is patient, Love is kind they say. It is us humans who take the patience and kind away.

The reason why we hurt the people we love most is because of two things:
1) We care too much
2) We are afraid.

Caring for a person exists as an effortless act to protect and shelter those we love. To always make sure they learn to care for themselves too. But caring too much leads to increased levels of expectations, it leads to anxiety that we try to rid ourselves of. It causes a painful ongoing feeling of having to wait for something that might or might not happen. Then we can only hope.

We are afraid. We are afraid of losing the people we hold close to our hearts and so we go out of our way to prove how much they mean to us. In the process we become possessive, paranoid with over excessive thinking and we get hurt. All in the name of Love.

So why is it that this world is comprised of those who hurt and get hurt? I think it works both ways. To hurt someone means you have been hurt before. Its a cycle.

This post is dedicated to all of you who have hurt the people you love most and who are still working on how to establish a good relationship among family, friends or lovers.

Its funny how there is no good in this world without having evil. Its even funnier how there is no happiness without sadness. Maybe its called balance. You tell me.

The Two Types Of People In This World

When I was a little girl, my mother told me that there are two types of people in this world. Good and evil. Nothing else.

I decided to be good. Well, duh.

When I was a teenager, my girlfriends told me that there existed two types of people in this world. Good looking ones and the not so good looking ones.

It was then I realised how much the world cared so much about looks. Looks can be deceiving too. They are most of the time.

When I was about 18 I came across a group of people who valued achievers and neglected failures. It was weird and it felt wrong. I knew for a fact, the key to achieving is to fail. I never met those group of people again.

When I was 19 I came across people who complained a lot about life. They seemed sad and miserable in a way and it as draining my energy too. I then came up with my definition of the two types of people in the world. The Miserables and The Anti-Miserables.

At the age of 20 I realised how much what my mother said was true. The world is comprised of such entities that at times the bad outweighs the good. I decided to brush it off, I decided to just live. Live for myself.

When I was 21 I came across a young boy who dreamt of change in the world we lived in. He was determined to seek inspiration by the people who have made change, but he didn't realise he inspired me the most.

He told me the two types of people in this world are the ones who care enough to just talk about it, and the ones who care enough to actually do something about it.
