We bust our asses for 40 hours a week to build someone else’s empire but won’t invest an hour a day into our own dreams. I know it gets hard & sometimes it seems like there’s not enough hours in a day but I want to encourage you that it can be done. I say this to you as a woman who not only works a full time job for a booming media company but also works part time with a mentally-disabled adult while working to complete my Master’s degree. Next week, I’ll begin my 3rd job as a Graduate Assistant at my Alma mater, researching relationships to aid in my thesis. At this moment, I’m sitting in my office, on my lunch break, pursuing my dream via writing this blog post. I say this to illustrate the point of making the time.
I read an article today in USA TODAY that said January 17 is considered New Year’s Resolution D-Day, the day most people give up on the goals they set at the first of the year. If you’re still reading this post, then you’re probably like me in the respect that you want something out of life. Something that you’ve not found in your 9-5.
I’m saying all of this to encourage you to make the time. Today.The secret (which really isn’t a secret) is discipline. It’s your life, after all. Do something today that will move you closer to your dream. I dare you. But don’t do it for me. Do it for yourself.
