I’m not going to lie…
My life is pretty awesome right now.
Last night, I took my very last exam EVER!!!
And then I cried like a baby because I got super sentimental thinking about how my school-life is completely OVER.
I now feel very old.
But I’m also really happy because I can be a somewhat normal and functioning member of society again.
I can sleep and I can read and I can sleep some more.
Again, my life is awesome…and I’m pretty sure yours is too.
So I’ve been thinking about this a lot lately. I’ve been thinking about success and whether or not it’s like super braggy/bragish to tell people about the really cool stuff going on in our lives.
And here’s the conclusion I’ve come to…
People love to complain. People spend hours and hours and hours talking to everyone they know about just how awful things are.
Go to a bad restaraunt? Obviously, you’re going to complain about it to anyone who’ll listen.
Have a bad day? You’re going to complain regardless of whether or not anyone will listen.
And this, apparently, is acceptable.
So if we can accept the complaints and the negativity, then I see absolutely nothing wrong with sharing things that are awesome!
It’s definitely far more productive.
Now, you don’t need to be obnoxious. You don’t have to be like, “Oh, look at me…I’m better than you…you suck.”
That’s never cool.
But if you’ve worked hard and you’re on your way to living your dream and reaching your goals, heck…be proud of it!
You’re allowed to be excited! You’re allowed to be proud of yourself!
Because if you don’t belive in your value and your success…
No one. Else. Will.
When it comes to your career, don’t be afraid to tell people about your accomplishments.
Especially us twentysomethings…we get it…we don’t have years and years of experience under our belts.
So for that specific reason, we have to make sure that the things we ARE doing…that we ARE accomplishing, we’re showcasing.
There’s nothing wrong with that.
And the peoploe who do have a problem with it?? Well, it’s probably because they don’t really have all that much going on anyway.
So don’t worry about them.
To all of you out there chasing your dreams, keep on going.
Don’t be shy to share your goals and your success. Who knows…maybe you’ll find that people are a lot more interested in helping you than you ever thought possible.
But how can they help you if no one knows what you’re chasing after?
Don’t be shy…if you’re working on something awesome, let me know!
