Who's Your Competition?

This evening I am a little bit sad but mostly anxious. Thinking to myself, how many heads do other people have? ( in a Nigerian mother’s voice). Not my mother btw; She is very supportive and thinks I word too hard. I don’t agree with her. Because I believe I can work harder, I end up forgetting some of the things I have accomplished and how far I've come.

Anyway, here are a some of the things I am most worried about now

  1. Acing my master’s program

  2. Getting hired

One of my favorite quotes is “everything happens for a reason”. I don’t know why and when people ask, I never have a good enough answer but it just resonates with me. I come to this conclusion several times a day - or at least it seems like several times a day - that all I can so is my best and leave the rest to my Maker.

So with that in mind, it’s time to focus on the present and getting better now for the sake of the future.

It doesn’t matter if someone 2 years younger than you is a model, speaks 5 languages, and turned down a full time position at a top IB firm to run a blog. What does matter is whether or not you are better than you were yesterday.

And if you’re not, don’t beat yourself up about it. Make a plan and do better:)

Oops I said it 🙊,
