It has happened to all of us in some way, shape or form! Even for this blogger, it has happened and at times still, does. Being fearful of your goals when you get to them or working towards them. It is not a negative thing it is just you being a tad bit self-conscious in a goal abiding way. Just follow me! You’ll understand by the end of this.
You: Well….what is my problem, Travis?
Me: Well….I’ll tell you because I gots love for you!
If you are in a panic state….CALM DOWN!!!! It is a problem many people face if not all. The problem is not you can’t accomplish your goals the problem could be one or more of these components:
- Lack of motivation: Which can happen all the time or from time to time! “I don’t wanna!”
- Fear of completion: That you’ll work and nothing will come out of it
- Getting to the goal and not know what to do next: Yay you did it! But what is next?
- Not understanding your goal: Do you know what is going on?
Those are some of the main goal fearing components that I see in this day and age along with my GENERATION! Those negative components go with all goals not just those big goals of a promotion at work or improvements of your finances. It could be anything such as you wanting to gain some weight (me) or creating/furthering your small business. Goals are goals no matter how big or small some are easily accomplished while others aren’t and that is just how it is! Just do not and I repeat do not fear those goals be prepared for those goals and grow/accomplish those goals folks! So with every problem, there is a solution so let’s get to those!
You: So what is my solution to my problem?
Me: Now, you are asking the real questions! You hold the solution I am just going to bring it out of you.
Since you’re calm now we can now figure out what to do about our goal fears! It’ll be hard at first but I have total confidence in you. So with those four I gave a few words ago here is the solution to them:
- Find what truly motivates you: Maybe it’s the money or the passion that you have for that goal. Use that energy of DREAMING to DOING!
- Work is work: You may think that work is in vein but little do you know you probably done set yourself up for something bigger and better.
- Let’s not think of what is next: Let’s think about how you are going to grow that goal once you accomplish it! Completion = A Seed!
- Understanding what it takes: All goals have a process you need to understand your process and ADJUST!
After reading this you have no excuse for being fearful of your goals! Goals are positive and not negative! It may take some time to achieve a goal but you can accomplish it. No goal is too big nor too small! Your goals are your goals and no one else’s only you can achieve em!
I SPOKE ON IT!!!!
If you know me well you know that I’m in the military! It’s my pleasure to serve you just in case you were saying in your head, “Thank you for service.” As you already know the military deploys from time to time and I went on one…..to where you ask? The wonderful state of Montana of course! With my military uniform in my bag, I had to figure out what I was going to wear on our downtime (which we had a lot of)…..now the old me would have packed about 20 different outfits with 40 pairs of shoes. But I have grown up! So what did I do? I packed three outfits………….yes……only three. Crazy right? Not really! Listen to me folks…..when you travel only pack for what you know you are going to do!
I know I was going to be lounging around a lot so I brought primarily lounge around clothing…THAT CAN BE WORN WHEN GOING OUT JUST IN CASE I DID NOT WANT TO PUT ON ANYTHING “FANCY”!!! Versatility is the key here folks! Really, with three outfits you have 27…..here is the math. Three shirts, three pairs of pants, and three pairs of sneakers 3 multiplied by 3 multiplied by 3. Combinations folks! Here are the outfits:
#1 Loose As A Goose
#2 Feels A Little Tight
#3 Oh He’s A Que!
Now, do not get me, wrong folks, I am not saying you can’t bring a little bit of extra clothing with you like an extra pair of pants and shirt but no need to overload! One thing that I do when I travel if it is not dealing with the military I pack at least 3 to 4 full really nice outfits and wear another outfit on the way to my destination….which means I just plus my outfit arsenal by 1!
So what is my point exactly? With limited clothing at home or on a trip if you know how to mix and match what you have you’ve beaten a constant style challenge that some of the most fashionable continue to fight and at times can’t figure out! It’s a pretty simple message I know but some just don’t understand. Something that I have been preaching for years is that fashion is simply the clothing! The style is internal! Do not let the covers of these magazines, runways, and celeb fashion define you when it comes to style…..LET EM INSPIRE YOU!!!

Yes, everyone its true the wonderful Beyonce Knowles snatched out that weave. Even though I would have let that fan do it for me and you know what I am talking about. Last night (August 7, 2013) she posted some pictures on Instagram showing off the new & short hair and she is giving me life I love it. Even though I am not a big Beyonce fan I do love her looks. She went from her long down her back weave to a wonderful pixie cut that stops at her ears. NOOOWWWWWWW!!!! Let me say this is not a trend cause we all know we may start seeing this on E! News or any other channel saying that its a trend celebs have been cutting their hair for the longest. Halle Berry came out of the womb with short hair. Miley Cyrus cut her hair short a while back. This means ladies not all of you can pull this cut off just like how she had her braids. If you have a small little face this cut would look nice. If you don’t have that type of head stick with long hair/weave.
