Meraki Truism #2

You are strong. You are independent. You hustle and grind.

If you are in high school, you are handling your courses, your extracurriculars, and learning to navigate the world around you. You’ve got your head on a swivel, taking it all in and looking ahead. You’ve got some difficult decisions ahead – college, which kind; trade school, which one; internships, apprenticeships, so many decisions are coming your way. Do you have a strong support system in place? Are you focused on your goals? Are you holding yourself and the people in your life to a high standard?

If you are in college, you’re doing the work now. You’re learning how to focus on the priorities, and letting things go that don’t serve you well. People are coming and going in your life. Are you making the right connections to benefit you? Are you surrounding yourself by people who are going to encourage you? We are the result of the people we are around and the books that we read. The habits you are forming right now are going to be the habits you have in your life for many years. Are these benefitting you?

If you are on the other side of college, or if you’ve completed an apprenticeship, you are Ms. Independent. Have you laid the groundwork you need? Have you visualized your future and reversed engineered the process to get you where you want to be when you want to be there? Nothing is impossible if you have the right plan and work ethic.

I’d love to hear your story! Drop me a line here.
