So, now it’s time to get into the professional workplace. Just getting out of college can be a tough transition into the “real world.” But it’s really no biggie. As long as you have these important factors, nothing can stop you from being the best “you.”
It’s super important to be confident in yourself. One doesn’t obtain confidence overnight, either (so if you think it does happen instantly, please get that thought out of your mind). You need to be confident in what you believe in, and you can’t waver in your beliefs. If you’re wavering back and forth, that means you’re really not confident in what you “think you believe.”
To be confident, just be yourself. That’s the best advice I can give to anyone out there that needs help with confidence. Have a mentality to be a better version of yourself than you were the day before. Please try not to compare yourself to others. It’s a terrible habit, and thanks to social media, it’s a lot easier to compare yourself with people, since their a finger tap away. Doubting yourself all of the time, isn’t normal!
It takes time to learn all of these really important tools, but it will come to you if you’re truly trying to work at being a better you.
So, in a case when you’re shopping for clothes. Don’t just buy those dress pants that are $69.95 because you’re working now and you can afford it. Look at the Clearance/Sale section. I just found a pair of pants at Express for like under $20! It was such an eye-opener at the checkout. I also bought these really classy suede, pointed-toe wedges that were also, under $20 bucks at Express. What a steal, right? Make sure you look at all of your options before making a decision. Look at all your options, even when you’re not buying clothes. For example, where to go for lunch and how much money you have in your pocket. Clearly you don’t want to go to a posh, five-star restaurant when you only have twenty bucks in your pocket…
Have faith that everything will work out the way it’s supposed to. Stop trying to control every little aspect of your life. Stop worrying about what will happen, and just focus on the NOW.
It’s so much easier said than done, but it takes so much practice. It really is worth it to decrease the amount of time you spend worrying, because peace of mind is a huge priority in being healthy. Just be faithful that everything will work out. If something’s not meant to be, that’s okay. Just accept that certain things aren’t meant to be; you can get mad or upset, but that will only hurt you. Just move on! Things in the world are really confusing, but don’t spend too much time on the “Why?”, spend more time on the “Now!”
When you shop, when you eat, when you drink, when you sleep, when you work, when you exercise, when you indulge in things; balance yourself! You really don’t need too much or too little of anything. You just need the perfect balance. What I mean by this is don’t go to Starbucks everyday for a vein frappe-mochachino everyday. That’s not a balanced drink and too much sugar will make you fat. (It’s also expensive).
If you’re interested in learning about a life of balance, please invest in purchasing this book called The Asian Diet, written by Jason Bussell. It’s an amazing book that explains about oriental medicine, a life of balance, and what to eat to have the utmost optimal health. (It’s not just about food and diet). It talks a lot about lifestyle and it gives a refreshing perspective on life. I would seriously invest in it, it’s a short read with a lot to say.”
Here’s a quote for the day:
“Wise men speak because they have something to say; Fools because they have to say something.” ~ Plato
Have a great day! 🙂
