I just literally just got off the phone with my best friend and we had a great thought-provoking conversation concerning my future. I’m really grateful to have a friend who truly supports me through it all. But, she posed a question that stirred my spirit asking me, “What are you going to do differently this time?”. What am I going to do differently this time around pursing my career? As the saying goes, do the same thing and you’ll get the same results; do something different and you’ll get different results.
Well, making it in NYC isn’t the easiest task, to say the least. It’s like a secret love/hate relationship. You love it here so much but it’s so hard trying to make it which I hate. The struggle. New York is the hardest place to live, in my opinion, in which I believe others would agree. As they say, “If you can make it in NYC, you can make it anywhere.” I’m almost certain that I can make it in all the other 49 states of America. But, New York though? I think I’m being tested from all angles. If people only knew what I’ve been through just to live here!
Survival of the Fittest + The Concrete Jungle = New York City.
Sometimes I think I’m crazy for trying to pursue my dreams in NYC. And sometimes, I start to believe it. Lol.
But, what am I going to do differently this time? I don’t want the same results; I need to bear fruit.
You know what? I know what I’m going to do this time. I’m going to do what’s out of my comfort zone. Whatever I was afraid of, I’m going to attack it and do it. THAT’s what I’m going to do differently. There are so many things that I want to do but there are minor hurdles along the way that stretches me, but I don’t want to overcome them because they’re out of MY comfort zone.
At this point in my life, I’m left with no choice but to do something differently to get different results. And the way to do that is to do everything that’s out of my comfort zone.
So, what are you doing to do differently?
