Me in The Bronx, New York
Me in The Bronx, New York

FACT: The only way you can become successful is to train your mind.

For the past few days, I felt a bit nostalgic. Just a week ago, I was in my hometown New York City surrounded by art, culture, and diversity. If life were an ice cream sundae those are the exact ingredients I’d need to fulfill my sweet tooth.

Being in the vibrant city of New York makes me feel at peace. Aside from the coughing on the subway train, or hustlers trying to sell you a bag of potato chips in front of the Bodega doors, there isn’t anything I can say that I dislike about New York.

Everyone seems to be on a mission. Everyone is on the hunt for a dollar. It’s a beautiful culture for the entrepreneurial mind. It makes you want to do more…it makes you want to be apart of something greater than yourself. Being in a metropolitan city will make you want to create.

For the past few months, I have focused all of my energy into something that my heart isn’t completely for. Eventually, today I realized that I want nothing more in this world than to write.

I want to write, publish books, and be apart of the cultured world. Most people remember their first kiss in elementary school. I, on the other hand, remember the first time I went to see The Lion King on Broadway.

I remember how being at the theater made me feel. I was exuberantly happy. I remember the beauty of the artistry that actors placed into their roles. Also, I remember telling myself; somehow, someday, I would become a part of this world.

So I’m here now…at 25 years old, living in Florida, and still holding on to that goal. I’ve tried to talk myself out of a writing career so many times. However, the thought of not writing creeps me out how I’d imagine Sarah Jessica Parker would hurl over knock off Prada.

The truth is, no one can hold you back from your dreams. You are in control of your destiny. Along with the power of God, and the strength of the universe, success is obtainable.

It’s dependent on one little thing….The transformation of your mind. One of my favorite biblical verses states, “Do not conform to the pattern of this world, but be transformed by the renewal of your mind.”

In order to succeed, you have to envision yourself living your dream life. You have to practice or study. You have to be determined…and most importantly, YOU CANNOT EVER GIVE UP!

Today, I came across this TED TALK by Carrie Green,  creator of The Female Entrepreneurial Association, that speaks on success. Take a moment to check this out. Then join me in transforming your mind for success.

Take a few days to see how this works out for you. Then send me a line with your progress…

Hey, we are all in this together, right?

Be your best,

Krissy J
