Growing up in a single-parent household, my life was anything but normal. I did not do well in school — I was the worst in every class and every sport. I had low self-confidence, not many friends and was always told I will not be able to accomplish much in life which I truly ended up believing.
Things remained the same even when I was a teenager. I still had that same mindset. In high school, while other students were preparing for post-high school plans, I had no idea what I wanted to do with my life. I still carried that lack of confidence and self-limitations from my childhood.
I graduated from high school in 2008 and immediately starting work full-time in retail. Within two years of working in retail, I was fired. I was sick and tired of being a letdown and wanted to make a better life for myself. What really motivated me to make this change was the positive results I was experiencing in the gym. I was gaining more muscle and becoming more fit. This was the first time in my life I realized that if I put in the hard work the results will come. At that point I told myself if I can work hard then I can get results anywhere. Finally, I decided it was time to return to school and take control of my life.
So what is my “WHY”…
Over the last few years, my mindset has significantly changed for the better. I have taken my experience as a child and teenager and used it as fuel for motivation to better myself. I am someone who believes in hard work ethic, always giving it your all, and having a strong desire and drive to reach your goals no matter what the obstacles are.
I also believe in learning from failure and mistakes and using that to continuously assess yourself to grow and become a better person. I feel everyone should have this mindset and I want to help others discover it. With my experiences of success, learning, growth, failure, and self-improvement, my goal is to show others that they can use it to better themselves too. If I could do it, then anyone else can too!
I have 3 plus years of Human Resources experience. I have a degree in Human Resources Management, and a Business Management Diploma. In order to best help you, I continuously read books every day and have read over 50 books in the last year-plus. I do public speaking and create blog posts and videos on success, self-improvement, and life. I was told I would never amount to much in life. Every day I continue to prove that wrong. If I am doing it, anyone can, including you!
