Ever thought about not going after your career goals? 🙋🏾♀️When it comes to your career you can’t stop what you’re doing. In fact, I had many people tell me I couldn’t accomplish certain things just for me to go out and accomplish it anyway. 🌸😋Take for an example when you swipe right you probably thought what is this image? Well I wasn’t a strong writer and even worse I wanted to work in Public Relations after college. 📇
Well I knew I needed to improve on this skill and then I had the thought that maybe I should become a freelance writer back when i just graduated. I built essentially a spreadsheet of all the editors and contacts at various publications asking if I could contribute. A few answered and then it happened. I certainly had many no’s and some changed my wordings.
But it taught me that anything is possible and to keep doing what I am doing. If you want to get practice by doing a certain job or you want to have a certain role – to others it may seem like you shouldn’t do it but to the right person…Don’t stop and Don’t Stop What You’re Doing! 😀 great motivation song that I loved! I found this when I redid my office and am thinking of blowing it up as a reminder to what I went through back then!
Such a beautiful flower that sprouted finally this morning and Getting There is helping my mental seeds do the same.
I am really enjoying this book so far. I actually heard about it while reading The Wall Street Journal on my phone and traveled miles in hopes of receiving a hard copy, but nothing was available. I bought the audio book instead while I wait for the hard copy to come in the mail.
I remember when I was in high school I always put my best foot forward, regarding my attire for an interview. Plus my mom made sure of it, lol. I knew the culture was to dress very formal and appear executive-like. Well, it certainly helped over the years because I remember later on hearing awful stories of people appearing at an interview like they were at a beach or didn’t bother to wear the appropriate jacket.
Here’s the thing, you want to set the mood, the tone of the conversation. But if your appearance gives the impression you don’t care, well, how do you think the rest of the interview will go?
