Lessons Learned from 2014

Another year has flown by and I look back with pride. 2014 was the year that defined my space. It showed me the difference I could make with my uniqueness. What a difference a year can make. 365 days of awesomeness

I was always afraid, scared and never moved out of my comfort zone. People’s perception continued to haunt me. I became a slave to the boundaries that I had drawn for myself. Will I ever be free? The questions continued.

It was time to re-discover and re-define myself. Writing was my gateway to the outside world. Ever since I started writing I have never been afraid to bare it all. I have heard people quote “Sex sells”.   The past one year has taught me that honesty sells too. The more I opened up I realized that I wasn’t alone. Every crowd has that one person who wants to break free. For the very first time I felt good about being different.

Every person has that one unique skill that defines their personality. It lies dormant within us. The sooner you identify your dormant skill the greater your chance of success. Always remember. “The Answer lies within”. Dig deeper to lay your hands on the treasure”.

It’s been three years since I started writing. For almost two years I wrote without an audience. It haunted me every single day. What am I going to do? How will I make sure my words have the desired impact? It was then that I realized that making my dream a reality wouldn’t be possible if I travel alone. I needed a lift from someone who could show me the way. I prefer to call them helping hand that would ease the burden of my long journey.

It is very important to surround ourselves with like minded individuals who will give you the much needed push to accomplish your goals. Along the way be prepared to reach out to people who might need your hand to reach their destination. You can never do it all by yourself.

Never yearn for the spotlight. Many a lives have been ruined in search of fleeting moments of fame. Fame is like a drug. It clouds your mind and leaves you in a haze and before you realize the whole purpose is lost. Work on your goals instead and the spotlight will fall on you when you least expect it and your whole life might just turn out to be an extended Christmas vacation.
