My mother bought me a Goals Book from Marshall's, that would eventually change my life. Even though I forget to use it sometimes, the ideas that I have put in there are pretty amazing. I recommend buying or making your own Goals Book to keep track of goals (of course), how you will reach them, and what you will do when you surpass your previous achievements. I mostly use it keep track of my steps and my forever-long list of things to do. I find that the book motivates me when I write everything down to make my end goal even more realistic. If I had a bigger purse or lighter book bag, I would carry it around with my everywhere.
One of my favorite quotes is “To be successful your focus has to be so intense that other think you’re crazy” (By Live: Now Success). There are many reasons as to why I love motivational or BO$$ quotes, because they keep me going when I’m ready to quit. They remind who I am and who I want to be. I cannot talk much about what it is like to start a business (unless you count this blog), but I’m still in the early stage of starting something big.
I am really grateful for the high school because it has provided me with so many opportunities that I would not know how to repay them back. Many students at my school own businesses, drive Mercedes, and have an awesome career path to keep their heads on straight. Now, some have parents who can help with the ideas, but many still less expensive shoes, while acing their exams and receiving scholarships.
I can not stress the importance of making your challenges worthwhile. Do not try to look for the recognition of others because sometimes you may not get it when you need it most, just believe that everything you are doing now will lead you to success in whatever area of your life. Quotes, especially on Pinterest, seem to be my go to for motivation. I know that everything I am doing will lead me to reach my goals written down in my book, you better get started!
