Create Yourself — Sharing the Keys
So real talk. Hi guys, it’s Nicole here, Social Werks’ Chief Digital Creative Officer, and Principal. While out on an afternoon walk, as soon as the sun decided to come out today, my mind gained clarity, and I was ignited with the need to write and share my thoughts on the blog.
So you ask, what was on your mind Nicole? I’m about to share the keys with you — as DJ Khaled would say, “Major Key Alert!” The keys I’m about to share with you surround the need and importance to create yourself!
Every day you have the capacity to wake up fresh, and begin anew. No matter the challenges that you were faced with in the past, we all have the ability to recreate our personal and professional self. Our self is number one. Think of your own individual self as a brand. A brand receives recognition for having value, or for exuding a unique quality. Our own individual brand needs work, attention, and respect. When you slip up in your professional life, or make mistakes in your personal life, there’s room for correction and modification. Simple as that — this is why we can continue to recreate who we want to be each day.
Creating yourself is actually cake! Set a goal that is attainable and a goal in which you can see. Don’t set goals that take lengthy amounts of time to reach. Who really is that patient these days? Millennials?? Nobody has time. Set mini-goals, and hit those goals. Every day you should wake up with a goal that is going to leave you satisfied and hungry for more. Creating yourself each day to be the best you, is an exciting challenge, an amazing feeling, and something that you can own because you created this yourself.
Lastly, I want to leave you with these thoughts:
When you decide to create yourself, be genuine and authentic. You’re only winning if you stay true to your passions, accomplishments, growth, and core values.
At the end of the day, you go to bed and you lay in your bed often times with thoughts from the day, the week, and so on. The thoughts you fall asleep with when you begin creating yourself, are golden. You are in control of your actions on the daily, and you’re in control of the interactions you have throughout the day. These two go hand in hand and play dynamic roles in which you begin to find the structure, and elements of how you want to create yourself. I will leave you with that.
In case you’re interested in The Giving Keys, I found those earlier today at U Village’s, Something Silver. They’re inspirational keys you wear around your neck and each symbolize a different message. Pay it forward and share the positive vibes with these cool keys.
