Are you the type of person that you would want to meet?

Character is a huge part of whether you succeed or fail. When people meet you are you the type of person that deserves respect, listened to, or trusted? Or are you the type of person that always likes spreading rumors? Who is always trying to hurt other people? Are you the type of person that calls people names and puts them down? Do you gossip? Do you claim to be a religious person and yet don’t forgive?

If you are any of these, why would anyone want to meet you? Be the person you want to meet. Do you want to meet someone who is vindictive, mean, hypocritical, judgemental and so on? Well, of that is not the kind of person you want to meet then maybe you need to stop being that person.

When we become more succesful, haters come out of the woodwork and try to hinder everything you have accomplished. Do not allow that to happen by becoming them. Be better and more mature. You worked hard for all of your successes, some individuals just cannot accept that. They want you to be at their level. You intimidate them.n Your success forces them to look at their own failures. You took the step to better your life. You studied at all hours, weekends and holidays. Why should you have to feel bad about that?

You shouldn’t. Stand strong and stand proud. Prepare yourself for their judgements just as long as you don’t fall into the same behaviors. College is very difficult as it is, especially if you are the first in your family or you were the problem family member who has turned their lives around. Wow what progress. People put down what they do not know about or cannot accept.

Continue on you beautiful journey and continue working on the person you want to meet. You will be AWESOME!

Enjoy this day.

Peace

Midterm Time – OH NO!!!!!!!

 

 

 

 

 

Here we are the DREADED MIDTERMS! ~~~Sweating ~~~ Long Nights~~~Stress~~~Nervousness and Insecurities ~~~

I feel you. It’s midterms for me too.  It’s time for us to see just how much we have learned so far.  It’s time to see if we slacked off or worked hard.  WAIT A MINUTE- DON’T !  Take a deep breath, go ahead – big breath in, hold it, big breath out.  There you go. Doesn’t that feel better?  Remember to do that often.

Midterms is only a GUIDELINE. Notice that word GUIDELINE.  (Midway)  It is not your grade. Just a measuring stick.  Whew – relief! 🙂

If you look at it like it’s a guideline it takes the pressure off.  Ok, let’s say that (now be honest with yourself) you did slack off and you have to own it. You have another 5 or so weeks to get it together. Midterms are a way to show  you honestly where you stand. If you haven’t slacked, this is where you get to pat yourself on the back for all the hard work you have done. 

Do your best and take this opportunity  to find your weakness and strength. Be real with yourself. If you didn’t do so well, ok, the last 5 weeks is gone. You have a clean slate. DON’T WASTE IT!

If you busted your butt and you ACE your midterms -CONGRATS! Let it REJUVINATE you!

GOOD LUCK!
