In this life, with the way the world is evolving and new trends and technologies keep coming out every day, it's very easy to get distracted and be pulled along with the crowd. 

This doesn't just apply to big trends or big things, it comes down to the very basic things we do each day. 

Take for example, you were currently in college before the Covid-19 pandemic came, then you all left for your houses for protection. Then after some months or weeks you start calling your school friends to know what's been up with them, then you find out that your classmates are now getting married, starting businesses and doing lots of other things you could think of..

At this point you get excited and start feeling like you're not meeting up to their standards anymore and you decide to follow their footsteps and start doing those things they are doing.

Don't get it wrong here, there's absolutely nothing wrong with being inspired by people's success and achievements and striving to achieve yours as well. The point here is, we should not do things just because our friends are doing it and are succeeding. We're not all created to do the same thing. We all have our individual skills and places of calling.

Everyone has their unique purpose, we all have unique skills and areas of life which we will fit perfectly into. If someone you know started a particular thing and became successful in it doesn't mean you have to do the same thing. You can be inspired by that person's success to go for your own unique things.

We should take time and study ourselves, find out what works for you as an individual. Take time and strengthen those skills you have naturally. Learn lots of things and put more interest in things that you find very easy to do and things that bring you joy.

FOCUS on the most important things.

You don't have to do every business to become successful. Your priorities should be what guides your decisions in everything you do. That way, you won't lose focus easily.

  1. Truth be told, no one wants to be left behind.
    But, one thing is for sure, great things take time to build and we all should have that foresight.
    Although the "getting married" part got me πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚

    1. πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚Yes na, some people will say that because their friends are getting married then they have to also get married, they'll now rush and land in the wrong marriage.
