Before you ask others what they can do for you, ask yourself if you’re doing all that you can do for others. People are quick to judge the next person and find flaws within their actions. Have you thought about evaluating yourself and what you do that may impact the lives of people around you? I’ve never been the type of person to lose sight of what I say. Regardless of what many think, there is power in your words. There’s in more power in your actions, but that’s another blog post.
I’m grateful for the opportunities I’ve been granted while in college. I see myself continuing to grow into a woman of true character and value. It’s not always about who you know. Be knowledgeable about your current situation and take the time to look into what can be done on your part. If you don’t know anything, how credible can you be? More importantly, instead of trying to know more than your peers, find comfort in knowing that they have the same 24 hours that you do. Work with them and not against them, but who am I to tell you that being selfish isn’t okay?
I say this ALL the time: Personality beats professionalism and character beats opportunity. Your image means nothing if there’s no genuine aspect. Be yourself and less worried about what can be done to give you the upper hand. No one cares if you’re successful if your personality isn’t very appealing. People could care less about what you can do and they focus more on how they feel when around you. If you can’t appreciate what people have done for you and you fall short of giving back in return, what opportunities will be offered to you? Starting today, be better than you were yesterday. I digress.
