If you’re feeling discouraged, I’d like you to stop that. Just stop. Now.
Having moved back home after graduating college, it’s easy to feel discouraged during the job hunting phase…especially if you’ve gone from living on your own to back with the family. (Love them to pieces, but it’s nice having your own place.) Sometimes it’s also easy to feel discouraged by your geographical settings. I know seas of corn don’t exactly scream opportunity for myself, but for others it may! Your mind is also an infinite resource. 😀
Also, stop the comparison. Because your story isn’t going to be the same as anyone else’s and that is a beautiful thing.
If opportunity doesn’t knock, build a door.
Perhaps I’ve been motivated by some discussions with some great people whom I’m very lucky to call my friends, and some projects we’ll be working on together. (More details coming later! :P) But it’s important to know that inspiration can be everywhere and that opportunity is yours to create.
Chart your path, and execute your dreams. Take no prisoners. Love,
