BREAKING THE CHAINS
It was the longest 40 minutes of my life. Seated in line waiting to be interviewed. The palms of my hands were sweating and I bet the interviewee next to me could hear the rhythm of my heartbeat. I was finally next in line, next to my dreams with a roller-coaster of thoughts running through my mind.
This was a big deal for me, I had to go for it. But as it turned out to be at the time, my all wasn’t the best. The interview process was fair, to say the least but I didn’t make it.
It was a major setback towards realizing my dream as a flight attendant. Just like any form of setback and frustration, being demoralized took the bettet part of me.
In life, there are people who make things happen, those who watch things happen, and those who say what happened. I chose to make it happen; I made a second and third application and eventually made it into the flying school on the third time.
It was a sigh of relief, but the whole experience of going for my dreams ruthlessly taught me a lot about defying all odds and breaking chains. Chains of self-pity and undermining myself.
The mind is like a muscle, a weak one can be conditioned for strength. Negative thinking slowly dampens your spirit and hinders your brand from surfacing.
Can you feel the weight of your misfortune, lack of money, fear weighing you down? Keeping you stuck and preventing you from igniting your brand or being the person you truly are or want to be? It is completely normal to have such feelings. It’s what makes us human. But they are not meant to be with us.
Which brings us to the question, what makes a good brand? A good brand is precisely aware of their weakness and recognizes it as their weakest link that must be detached.
What habitual and negative thoughts are keeping you from your success, brand awareness and brand actualization?
Identifying them is the first step towards getting rid of them from your conscience and replacing them with positive energy that will motivate you to be the brand that you should be. You’re capable of conditioning your mind to perform amazing things.
Take control of your mind to be the master of your own destiny in actualizing your brand.
