The value of a healthy perspective

What does it take to create success? It’s all a matter of your perspective. Shift your perspective’ – a phrase we often hear that refers to an observation or thinking practice. One definition: taking the way you think about a topic, setting that aside for a moment, and adopting another way to think about the very same topic. Reflecting on a topic in a new way is a great way to problem solve. That’s why sometimes the best thing you can do to change your perspective is to literally change what is right in front of you. The way you change your surroundings can be quiet or dramatic. Change your focus and make better choices that align with what you really want. FOMO is for people without focus. You won’t have a fear of missing out when the reward is achieving our dream. It’s natural if along the way you feel frustrated, bamboozled, and led astray. No one ever said the road to success is easy. Sustainable success represents consistency multiplied by time. There is …

Life’s discontentment has the power to leave us all feeling helpless and sometimes ‘stuck.’ One of the biggest mistakes we make is relying on our minds to tell us who we during those moments.

Your brain learns your patterns and if you decide to take a new job or lose weight you may not get the boost you need from your thoughts. That is why reinforcement is crucial and by …

At least if you’re feeling how I did a few weeks ago when I project I had been working on, spending money and countless hours, persistently for months fell through because of reasons beyond my control.  You start to believe that nothing can change and you begin to feel ‘stuck.’ Maybe things didn’t work out the way you expected. The right opportunities never came along. It doesn’t matter the reason, what matters is that it is holding you back. Failure leads to multiple learning opportunities to become who you are meant to be. Feeling ‘stuck’ comes from a place of fear and limits. You begin to fear failure and avoid situations where it is a possibility. No one wants to ever say aloud, “I fear success,” because it seems awkward to say. Everyone wants to be successful. We all work to have things that we want and to live an independent life. However, there are many …

Career fairs allow you to meet hiring managers or recruiters from various companies across multiple industries.
