Is it just me or has January flown by? What a busy month it has been for me. I definitely started 2015 with a very strong work ethic and have been busting my butt clocking long hours and putting in all of my heart, knowledge and creativity into my work. With so much going on and so much coming up (got tons of traveling coming up in the next couple of months, so excited to share with y’all new travel blog posts following these travels), it’s hard not to work hard. As a kid, my mother would always say, “do your best and f*ck the rest“… Yes, maybe not the “f*ck” part when I was a kid but would always encourage me to work hard and do the best that I can at everything I did.
During one of my meetings today, I had a moment where I couldn’t believe that after all these years of work, I was where I am today. It was a weird out of body moment, where I was looking at myself and what I was doing in disbelief. My career holds a very important place in my life and the only reason I’ve attained the job status I have today is because I’ve worked my butt off, not counting my hours, working without getting paid for years while paying my dues and then when finally attaining my first real job, working hard to get to the next level.
I think having a hard working ethic will lead to positive results no matter what area in your life. Whether it’s your career, family, personal goals, health, etc. without putting work into it, you won’t get any results. As of late, I’ve been focusing a lot of my energy on becoming the healthiest person that I can be and with that comes work. By registering to a 10k run, comes work. By wanting to eat clean every day, comes work. If you work hard in life, it will pay off! That’s what I’ve always believed in and hopefully always will. Who’s with me?
