For any and everyone that wants to become successful in life, you cannot become wealthy being comfortable. The uncomfortable decisions are what separate you from being great and being subpar. Little do you know that when you choose to drive down the road that you aren’t aware of, you become blessed with opportunities that wouldn’t arise if you continued to stay on the same track as before. Better yet, you prepare yourself for challenges in the long— n—that will reward you for overcoming the outcome.
We must tune our mind to get out of our comfort zone. When we become to comfortable, we become complacent. When we become complacent, there’s no room for improvement. When reading a article by W.T. Hamilton he stated, “The Comfort Zone is a sly and convincing place; often the dream doesn’t even realize it has stopped there. There’s a warmth of security that’s abundant and wonderful. It always feels like it is where the dream is meant to be.” You don’t ever want the feeling of your dream being “meant to be” by having second thoughts about it. You want the feeling of believing that it’s going to come into fruition the more you work towards it. Continue to make your own memorable journey, document it, and take action towards it.
“The desire to get better and better at something that matters.” - Daniel Pink
This week we are focusing on two influential words; Autonomy and Mastery. While listening to a Ted Talk podcast on ‘The Money Paradox‘ we believed this would be an excellent topic to share to our audience. Lets elaborate on autonomy to begin with. With autonomy, we have this urge to direct our own lives. Every single living human being wants to have the power to make their own schedule every 24 hours and not have to answer to anyone. That’s one of the biggest checkpoints in life. “It is the freedom to do anything you desire, without getting anyone’s; approval.” We all have those dreams of working for ourselves, but only the hardworking/risk-taking individuals get this far.
Next up is mastery and this noun represents the “desire to get better and better at something that matters.” We must all start at the bottom of the pyramid and master our skill-set before we reach the top. Becoming a master at your dream will not only make work more enjoyable for you, but it will display the quality and professionalism that will stand out amongst others.
Do everything for your audience because at the end of the day, they’re the ones supporting your business. Now keep these two influential words throughout your productive activities
and showcase it in your work.
When we hear “action kills anxiety’ we take a pause for a moment, look up to the sky and think…sounds so simple right? But not really. This three-word statement can change the way you think about life, better yet entrepreneurship. See action is the second step we must do after our ideas pops up in our mind and the reason most ideas don‘t come into fruition is because of hundreds of thoughts of where to begin. Understand that there isn’t a step-by-step action we must follow. Wherever you begin is always one step closer to bringing your imagination to life so don’t overthink yourselves.
Mr. Gary Vee states, “fear is when you give yourself to much time to think.” Overthinking can cause you to lose everything you want to go after. Our mind is so powerful that most people take it for granted. We must control our brain into a positive mindset and rewire it to have yourself believing that impossible ain’t impossible at all. THINK ABOUT NOW AND NOT FIVE YEARS FROM NOW! Thinking is our most creating tool, so please use it wisely. And always remember that without action you will never learn how to be successful in life. So go out there and get it!
Investing time into your skill(s) and dream(s) is so overlooked these days because social media has inﬂuenced individuals that other people successes has occurred overnight which leads them to lack patience. Ignorance is bliss. Value the time you have and use it wisely, otherwise your seconds, minutes and hours will ﬂy past in no time and your entire day becomes unproductive. Invest time into your business. No matter if you work part-time or full-time, MAKE THE SACRIFICE to put in the hours to improve your business and double down your hours on your off days. The hustler Gary Vee once said, “You ain’t workin’ hard enough if your taking off on weekends,” which is a powerful statement that should resonate in your mind.
Stop spending countless hours scrolling your thumb up and down your phone being addicted to what other people are doing. Worry about making yourself a better person and the man above will create your own signature path. Our team suggest this to all of our audience. Create block hours (eliminate distractions) when you begin working towards your dreams, turn on some Soulection music and begin investing!
Happy New Years to our audience! We are excited to dive into this new year with a boost of positivity to follow our dream(s) and a strength of courage to take smart risk and build a solid foundation to create our ideas off of. We believe that resolutions are over saturated and temporary so we encourage everyone to continue to have faith in their vision and don‘t be afraid to be different from what society views.
2018 is going to be a big year, but the goals are still the same. IOM is pushing towards bigger boundaries to create higher quality hand-sewn garments while focusing on better details and structure for everyone that supports us. All in all our dream is beyond clothing as we are here to inspire everyone of all ages to become whoever you want to be and follow both your heart and your gut.
Lets continue to grow!
