Most people look at me and wonder what it is about me that makes me stand out amongst everybody else. So I've decided to reveal the truth to the world. Fact is, outside of my faith in Jesus Christ and divine intervention, there is a just a few simple principles I usually live by that allows me to so. So here it goes.......my keys to success.
1.) Thinking ahead of everyone else - I usually take the time to think about the things that most people are not thinking of. I take notice to what other people are doing and then focus of what they are not doing that I could be doing. I call it "progressive thinking".
Which brings me to the next one...............
2.) Paying Attention - Sounds redundant but it's really not. It's important to pay close attention to your surroundings. Think about it. You never know where inspiration may come from. It's also important to pay attention those who are successful in the position you are trying to reach. My coach told me back in the day, "if you wanna be successful then watch the successful".
Moving on to the next one, number 3....
3.) Most importantly......DON'T BELIEVE YOUR OWN HYPE SMH!!!!!!!! - It is important to never believe you've arrived. Despite all the compliments I receive, I never get complacent in my work and continue to push myself to improve on every level.
Which ironically (not really) leads me to my next key................
4.) Be careful of the company you keep - NO NEW FRIENDS!!!!!!!!! Never surround yourself with people who don't motivate you and constantly pat you on back. Surround yourself with people that will be COMPLETELY honest with you and not afraid to tell you the truth. Never focus on a small group that makes you feel like "a million bucks" because how else will you grow if you feel like you've already arrived??? Surround yourself with other people with the same drive as you to get where you're trying to go.
5.) Organize ALL your thoughts and take notes about everything!!!! I usually have pieces of paper laid out with design shapes and names of fonts and different ideas and "to do" lists to keep all my thoughts and ideas organized and ready to go when I need them.
Watch how this connects with the next one......................
6.) Always do something - There's always something to do. There's always something to work on or an idea to develop. There's always something you can focus on or give an ample amount of attention to. No excuses. #STEADYWORKIN #ALWAYSGRINDIN #YESSIR
7.) STAY FOCUSED!!!!! - I've seen so many people with potential that often fall by the wayside and often miss out on opportunities placed before them. Stay focused at all times and never get sidetracked. Keep your focus on a number of things to keep your mind fresh and always ready to work.
These are the main things that keep me my mind fresh and successful. So there you have it, my faith in Christ and my principles.................You don't like it, I DON'T CARE!!!!!!!! LOL.
