It’s Monday, the beginning of a new week, and you need words of empowerment to start your week off right.
This week’s word of motivation: Patience
In this video we see Reggie Bush, the former All-star Trojan athlete, expressing his struggles as a new recruit on the New Orleans Saints football team–the difficult transition from winning college football championships to not scoring one touchdown in the pro-league.
Like Reggie Bush, we all seem to have a caliber to achieve what we want in life–whether it be graduating with a higher degree or winning trophies. However, we soon realize that we can’t predict everything, and life does happen. Even though it gets us down, it should not serve as an excuse to give up.
Be patient and continue to work hard at your goals. Let me be the first to say that I have fallen many times in my quest of obtaining a job– knowing that my caliber was a college degree. However, once I became patient with myself, and persisted throughout life’s obstacles (never giving up on my goals), I realized that I can utilize my degree and, combine it with my creativity to create something special like: Prince’s Daily Journal.
So Be Patient and Never Give Up–and you too can score a touch down!
