My morning began with a nice warm cup of tea, my iphone in hand and the Medium articles displayed. I read this article about letting yours self go on a blog and let write out personal goals. The article says It makes you take more responsibility for you actions and hold you more accountable to yourself and your goals. I've also read articles and books saying the complete opposite and to keep your personal goals to yourself. Me being the personal I am and going against the grain, I actually like the fact of putting out my ideas and dreams out to the world. I look at it like, If I died before I could accomplish these goals, my son, grand kids, great grand kids can say I had my head in the right place. Also, when I accomplish the goals I write out and actually make them happen, I can look at myself as a prophet of my own destiny and I kinda like that idea.
So lets dive.
I want to end this year as a Content/Digital marketer intern. I've posted many blogs and I create many videos/photos to help promote myself and many people inside and outside my circle. I've had days just sitting and thinking of what I want to do with my life and reflect on what I would do If I could do anything and making money was not an option. After days upon days of thinking, I realized how much I enjoy helping people mentally, physically, emotionally and financially. I have this sense of joy being able to help people live out their dreams and making their ideas come to life. I've read many articles on how not everyone thinks that way. Most people want million of millions of dollars, just to have it. I personally want a different life from that. I want to experience more joy in helping others by mental gains and leave a legacy.
The thing that changed my life was starting a clothing line, having a store, and building it. That experience lifted my confidence and now I only make decisions based off how I feel and if it's the right thing to do. A lot of people don't realize that money is not the answer. Being a black american, I have been brought up thinking I need to become something great and make a lot of money to feel great about myself and feel successful. Now money is very important, but thats what you chase. It's the goals you chase. The chasing in the goals create the person you have always wanted to be and the feeling of being the person you thought you were and could be feels so good, but a lot of people do not see it that way.
That's were I find myself standing, because I personally do not believe money will make me feel great. Money is great to have and I would love to have a larger bank account, no denying that. But if my life ended and I didn't reach that money part of my life, I refuse to believe life could have been better. Life is fucking great and I want every person especially living in america to feel like me. Love life, have fun, enjoy the small things, cherish our friends and family. That's what life's about and I believe chasing your dreams and goals help me have this feeling.
That's where my goal to become a Digital/Content marketer comes from. I feel like I will be able to help many accomplish their goals, while helping me accomplish mine as well. I've studied many job descriptions and the digital/content marketer works best. My ultimate goal would be, to run my own office and have people smarter then me, more talented, happier, funnier, high drive'd people all under one house. The sole purpose would to help change the world by helping people live their dreams by helping them spread their message. Help them find their message and construct their message to the masses and allow them to succeed. Even if we do not make people super millionaires that would be up to them and what their personal goals. We would be the group of individuals going to the hood, talking to the kids, educating them on the now and how to grow. Show them the power of them and the power of marketing.
It's amazing how many people to this day, do not believe in the power of the internet and marketing. This shit has changed my life and the fucking world. I'm jump in this craziness to leave my mark and create a legacy as best as I can.
So thats my plan for the rest of 2016.
My current job puts in me alignment with that goal. I am currently a brand specialist for a print and promotional product shop. I've attached my video below, so you can check out what I do at my job. I am going to get on top of my blogs and videos now that I have my computer back up and running.
