Here are a couple of articles I read over the weekend which I think are great and want to share with you.
It is true that all we do constantly is consume, consume and consume. If we halved that time and started creating, there would be so much more things that we could be doing. There would be so many ways we could be improving ourselves. For instance, I’ve been letting my Chinese slide. I need to start picking this back up and going full speed ahead. I was watching The Face today, and one of the models said she came to the States from Russia three years ago with no family and no English. Her English was very passable by the time she got onto the show. That made me think – if this Russian girl who knows no English at all can speak it after 3 years, why can’t I still speak Chinese despite being Chinese all my life?! It’s time to put the excuses aside, and just start doing it.
We’re often too comfortable in our own comfort zones. We always say we want to push past our comfort zones, but this is something that is incredibly difficult to do, and often times once things get difficult, we give up. Here’s the thing. Nobody ever said getting what you wanted was easy. If it was, we’d all be millionaires today. It’s easy to get distracted when you’re in the middle of your journey, before you’ve reached the end. This is what I’m going to be reminding myself more of, not to give up and to continue persevering no matter how hard it gets.
I like the article on leaders, because only now do I understand it, after having worked for a couple of years. Everyone is motivated differently and reacts differently to different styles of working. I found that article very thought provoking and i find there to be many truths in it.
So long, for now!
