Baring yourself might seem like the most difficult thing to do. At least in my case. Sometimes we fail to find the beauty within us (not just physically). We sometimes forget the beautiful characters we possess while focusing in the things we want to change.
It’s essential to always find the beauty within you. I recently did a photo shoot. It’s a photo shoot I had always wanted to try out but never thought I’d be able to pull it off.
A no makeup photo shoot.
You’re doing well but those around you ain’t.
Some of you may have found yourselves in situations like this; your life is going smoothly, everything is rosy (at least most of it), but a loved one is struggling or doesn’t seem to have it all together.
Do you dim your light for their sake?
Have you been feeling really down lately? Feeling like you’re the only one left out? Asking yourself why everyone’s finding their niche and you’re not? Feeling useless? Like you have no bright future? Tired of hearing “start your own business” when you have no idea what to start? They say follow your passion but you have no idea what that “passion” is?
Well, I’m here to tell you this. Don’t beat yourself up about it.
Doesn’t sound like much help yeah?
But let me ask you, how will worrying help you? How will feeling down and lashing out on those around you help you in finding your niche? I’m pretty sure it hasn’t helped anyone.
I totally understand how you feel – trust me, I’ve been there.
So now, I’m gonna share with you what I did – which wasn’t much to be honest.
I just lived my life. As simple as that.
I supported those around me who had found their “niche”, I didn’t beat myself up about not figuring out what it is that I’ve been “called” to do. Most importantly I worked on developing myself. How? Mostly by reading, listening to motivational talks and messages. Lastly but definitely not the least, I kept an open mind.
Let’s break some of those down a bit shall we?
1. SUPPORT OTHERS
This might prove difficult to do but you can and should. Don’t let jealousy bring you down, always stay above envy. I know it might be hard to see those around you doing so well for themselves when you have nothing going for you. Instead of feeling jealous and angry, turn that into something positive by being of great support to them. When those feelings creep in, learn to replace them with positives, instead let their success motivate you. Know that you have total control over your MIND.
There’s so much joy in seeing the people you love do well for themselves. Besides, birds of the same feathers flock together right? If your close friends are successful, then there’s a high probability that you’ll be successful as well right?
So now, instead of feeling resentful, fill you heart with joy when your loved ones are achieving great things. 💃
2. SELF DEVELOPMENT
This can never be overstated. You need to continuously work on yourself, always seek to improve yourself, and who knows? You might just get an idea or two while at it. Like I mentioned earlier, read books and/or listen to people who will inspire/motivate you.
If you have a religion, PRAYER also comes in here. Seek guidance from God.
3. KEEP AN OPEN MIND
Yes, this one. Literally keep your mind open. Some things might come to you and you dismiss it because you think “it isn’t something you can pull off” or better still, you don’t even recognize that it’s an idea because you’re not paying attention or open to different possibilities.
When you open your mind to different possibilities, you’ll be amazed.
ONE LAST TIP:
GO FOR IT
Is there one thing – or two – that you’ve had in mind for so long but you’re scared to take that step? Or worried about what people might think/say? I tell you, a few years down from now, you’ll regret not taking that leap of faith.
Better an oops than a what if!
Just try something out. Maybe a hobby or something you think you could be good at and see how it goes. There’s no harm in trying, you know? Don’t underestimate yourself.

Working on yourself is the best thing you’ll ever do, the one thing you always carry around everywhere you go is You.

We’ll continue our chat in the next post, for now, let’s go ahead with the main article for today.
Some months back I watched a video on Facebook which gave me the inspiration for this post. Immediately I watched the video I saved a draft titled “1 thing everyone needs to do” and finally today I decided to write my take on the video, I’ll be sure to include the link of the video below.
Yes, as simple as that.
In a video clip posted by Hicham Benner on facebook, Steve Harvey said “If you want to be successful, you have to JUMP”.
Jumping is an important leap that has to be taken at least once in someone’s life. We all have dreams, aspirations, desires, goals and visions for our future. But most times what prevents most of us from jumping is fear, Fear of “the unknown”. Fear of “what would people say?”. Fear of “Can I really do this?”. Fear of “losing what you have now no matter how small it is”. Fear of “Failure”.
And so what? And so what if you fail? So what if people say things about your new venture? So what if success seems so far fetched! I tell you now that there’s a huge possibility that what you want to jump towards will fail or will take a while to yeild results but the good news is, YOU WENT FOR IT! Do you know what price you get for Jumping? More knowledge, More Strength. More Courage and Bravery to Jump into many more adventures. And as Steve Harvey put it, your parachute will open!
Jumping is the only way out of your situation.
Jumping is the only thing that can get you what you want.
Jumping is the only thing that can set you free.
Jumping doesn’t come in handy in just business, it comes into play in every area our lives. Been wanting to tell your partner you want to give celibacy a try? Go ahead. Want to confess how you feel to someone? Or thinking of starting a project dear to your heart? Then go ahead and jump my love!
If you jump and end up on stony grounds, that’s okay. Next time you’ll know the location of the bed of roses.
Not jumping will keep you safe but you’ll never soar.
It’s a new month guys, don’t hesitate to jump. Leave a comment “JUMP” as a sign of commitment to jump even though you can’t see where you’re gonna land.
HAPPY NEW MONTH.
