Me: 2018 is about to be my year. I'm about to elevate in every area of my life. I'm going to grow my income, increase my credit score, travel the world, and finally find the man of my dreams.
Did anyone else's 2018 end up like this?
With such high expectations we thought we were winning 2018. The year came and went and we were left dumbfounded about most of the decisions that were made against us. It must have been something in the air because things were just not adding up.
Despite disappointment after disappointment we still persevered and here we are ready to create our 2019 goals but this time around we are going to get it right.
For me, my disappointment mainly came from expecting elevation in the workplace. It's hard to elevate when your superiors are comfortable with where you currently are and what you are already doing without complaining. It's similar to being in a long relationship. Once the man is comfortable with you there's no need to promote you, because you are already doing everything. It's not that they don't think highly of you, they just like where you are and things are great the way they are so why change it? Because of that, everyone around you starts to grow but you remain in the same place while taking on more tasks.
I then became stuck in a place where "I" was growing but my title wasn't. Then, guess what? They bring in someone else to do the job you are already doing because they know you aren't going anywhere. So now they have the best of both worlds. They have new fresh talent and they have you, someone who already knows the ropes. So now you are reporting into the new person that you have more experience than...
How do you overcome disappointment when you deserve so much more? How do you continue to work hard when your peers are trying to hold you back? Getting through disappointment starts with understanding your worth. Know who you are!
If you are expecting a breakthrough and you don't receive it, know that it wasn't your time to shine. It doesn't mean you are unworthy of the blessing. It is extremely hard to keep pushing through bad news but once you understand your worth and what you bring to the table you will not feel the need to pout.
Align yourself with where the universe wants you to go and stand firm along that journey. No one can stop your blessing.
Hold your head up high through the hardships of life and remember that your time is coming. Your current situation does not define your outcome. The best is yet to come.
