Know This About Expectations And Feeling Entitled

I was inspired to write this blog post by a series of tweets from a friend @tukobos and these are the tweets:  “I've learned something in life: If a person has a victim complex, you can NEVER talk that person out of that victim mentality. Only that person can. If a person has a saviour complex, you can NEVER talk that person out of that saviour mentality. Only that person can.” “This is why I don't throw in my two cents with such discussions anymore. Because nothing I say will have an effect. But then, I beg of thee reading this: YOU ARE NOT A VICTIM YOU ALSO ARE NOT A SAVIOUR” “This is to women and this is to men, of all shapes, forms, colour, race, ethnicity, identity, tribe. Go out everyday knowing that the life you want is only the life you can get for yourself. No handouts.

  Hello Bold Winners! Pleased to share with you once again an interesting blog post that will stimulate your intellect. Today, I was inspired to write about "wanting to be liked by everyone".

Don't speed and the spend excess time relaxing and waiting. You must keep moving. Life not does wait for anybody and those times when you decide to rest a little longer than you should or waste time a little more might be crucial to you eventually achieving your dreams.
