Waking up each day with a purpose is so important, well it is to me and really it should be to you. We are so lucky to be on this planet right now, we will only be here once so we might as well make it count right? Therefore, you deserve the best. With that I want to encourage you to do what you love everyday. STOP COMPLAINING. You have a choice how you spend your time. If you’re unhappy in your job, simply move on OR if you want to be your own boss, work towards that in the hours you’re not at your current job. How you spend your time matters. Its not easy but it will be worth it. I love that I am able to do what I do and I would say I’m lucky, but in reality I work hard for it. I am still growing and developing myself as a brand. Doing what I do is a 7 day a week job. Although its fun taking photos for instagram (@Jbone89), creating videos, writing blog posts etc…they have to be perfect and thats not easy. A lot more goes into what I do than you would even know, especially as I have a book being released 4th May 2017. (You can pre-order it HERE).
A few months ago a lady said to me ‘are you still doing your online beauty stuff’ to which I replied ‘Yes, I love it’…her response? ‘Ah, well it keeps you busy’…I rolled my eyes so much on the inside and then it dawned on me, she thinks this is just a hobby to keep little paralysed Jordan a bit happier. When in reality I am doing what I love everyday and IT’S MY JOB. I genuinely think people don’t always get that this is a real job.
NOTHING THAT IS WORTH IT IS EASY, BUT IT’LL COME NATURALLY IF YOU LOVE IT.
So many people are terrified to take the plunge to follow their heart when it comes to careers, because a lot of us don’t believe in ourselves or more to the point can’t be arsed. If you can’t be arsed, as I so politely put it, you don’t actually want it. Honestly, YOU CAN DO IT…if you try, really try. I am still trying. If you don’t know what you want to do just simply ask yourself; ‘what do I love?’ & ‘what am I good at?’ and you’ll find your answer.
This doesn’t apply to people who just want to work online or be their own boss, this could relate to anything. For example; if you enjoy caring for others why not become a carer or a nurse? If you’re good at educating people, why not become a teacher? You get the gist.
An example of taking the plunge is Mike. He left the RAF with a steady income to become an online nutrition coach. He has worked extremely hard and educates himself further in what he does everyday and in-turn gets people the bodies they desire. It was a massive risk but it was worth it. There is more to why he left the RAF but I won’t go into it right now. He wakes up everyday and loves what he does, which is amazing.
STOP WAITING FOR TOMORROW.
A lot of people say they want it but will say ‘oh, I’ll do it tomorrow’. I think a lot of us are guilty of that. Tomorrow is never guaranteed so start now. It takes so much time so you have to be patient therefore waiting for tomorrow is a bad move. I believe in you.
YOU ARE MY PURPOSE.
When I said it is so important to wake up with purpose I just want to say that you guys are my purpose, career-wise. I work to inspire you to live the best life you can. IF I CAN DO IT YOU SURE CAN. I have so many restrictions which I could cry about, but I just get on with it most of the time, but in all honesty I obviously have bad days just like everyone else.
I hope this post has given you some inspiration to do what you love and has made you realise you truly do deserve the best in life. I believe we are all equal and have the same chances of success as someone we look up to right now. We all have to start somewhere, when are you going to start?
