I deserve to be in a certain position, but are you willing to do what it takes to put yourself in that place of success. So many people want to be in this place they call success, but they come at night and sit in front of the television. And nowhere is it more evident than in the generation we see now. And a lot of it has to do with this view of our social media accounts where everything is right there in in front of us. We can see it and it’s close enough to touch. But then, when it comes to work, you say, put in the 10 – 15 years, and people look at you like what did you say. But that’s the time you must be wiling to put into your career.
I recently checked my Instagram and saw that I had likes pertaining to some of my posts. Then I realized that I am in pursuit of a career in writing and photography wondering why nothing is happening. It’s because getting better at these crafts take a lot of time and a continuation of learning. but the posting of photos on Instagram and waiting for the likes can really hold you back. Because you might post something and say, man that was good. How come more people didn’t jump on to the wave. Well, you need to build a lot more and longer. But also, create outside the social landscape with people to expand your name. That is what a career is about, going beyond just the title of your duty and seeking validation from a group of outsiders that know nothing you do.
You want something in this world, you go get it. This idea that somehow, you’re going to get it because you feel entitled to it is not real. Understand that no one “deserves” anything worth having in life. That is something you must be willing to put time and effort into. You feel you deserve go prove yourself.
