Who to surround yourself with

Surround yourself with people who will constantly push you out of the world of complacency. People who will keep you accountable when you have the potential to run away from a difficult situation. People who are willing to chase their dreams at all costs, and without letting others’ opinion of them get in the way. People who make their own paths and not merely following someone else’s. Surround yourself with people who will be there for you even if things don’t go according to plan.

Knowledge is power?

They teach us that ‘knowledge is power’ (and yes, it is) but I think it’s just as important that we also get taught that it’s okay to not know things, that knowledge is attained through hard work, through learning; for us not to be afraid to accept gaps in our knowledge in order to better ourselves.

They say that travelling in a straight line is the fastest way to get to your destination – it is. But what happens if there’s a roadblock, a detour, a delay? You deal with it and follow the signs to get back on track, no issues, right? So why can’t we apply that to our lives – our goals? If one path doesn’t lead us there, do we give up on our dreams? Or do we go ahead and find another way to get there? The fastest way may not necessarily be the best and only way to get there.
