I know what you’re thinking – Hmm the 5 W’s and how? Are we talking about who?, what? where?, when? And why? Plus how?… Yes, we’re talking about: The 5W’s Plus How?
Remember in class, your English teacher gave you an assignment to write an essay about whatever topic he or she would of given you then after given you the assignment, your English teacher always reminded you to remember the 5 W’s plus how?. Yeah, I remembered and it was the most critical thinking process ever because you really had to think about what you’re going to write about.
So, I thought to myself the 5 W’s plus how? Can be relatable to our daily lives, and can be useful through our journey to success. Hear me out before you have that weird look on your face because I understand the 5 W’s plus how? is all for writing essays or journalism but, I believe that the 5 W’s plus How? Can be useful in our daily lives and here’s how:
“Be who you are and say what you feel, because those who mind don’t matter, and those who matter don’t mind.”
Who? Who are you?
You are brave
You are beautiful
You are unique
You are successful
You are blessed
You are loved
You are bold
You are greatness
You’re the one that is in charge of your own life, your happiness and only you can stop yourself from dreaming, from chasing and stopping your opportunities & blessings. Who is the person that isn’t going to let anyone get in their way, who is the person that is going to work hard for what they believe in and who is the person that believes that they’re worth so much more to life than what people says of you and that is YOU. Yes, your journey will never get easy but, who’s going to enjoy the ride when something amazing happens- that would be you. “There’s a blessing in the storm.” So, You are someone that can do anything that you set your mind to be and you’re never alone, you may think you’re alone but, trust me there’s someone sticking by you and guiding you in the right direction – “Let your faith be bigger than your fear” . And if you need to start over then start over – no one can hold you back except YOU and that is who?.
“To be yourself in a world that is constantly trying to make you something else is the greatest accomplishment.”
I wrote a blog post on (What Is Your Happiness?) and I talked about what happiness means to me and how we shouldn’t let others effect our happiness in life. So, you have to ask yourself:
What is your happiness?
What is your motivation? What motivates you to keep going in life? What are you waiting for to start on your career or what your passionate about? Let me tell you something you start by starting no matter what is going on in your life. Man if I tell you what I’ve been through in order to start my blog – to finally made that decision to go ahead and go for it, I might as well write a book but, we’ll save that for another time. So, do what you believe is right for you and not for others.
Have you seen people on social media, talk about what they want to do in life? Or they’re always talking but, years later they’re still in the same spot as last year.(No shade towards anyone who talks more than their actions) because I’ve been there in my life, and I believe we’ve all been there in our lives but, at some point you have to ask yourself when will you start? And here is something I love to remind myself and it is “if not now……Then when” (The real question is When?) when will you start? And when will you stop talking and start doing? Don’t keep saying I’ll wait till tomorrow because tomorrow may never come, like everyone has said tomorrow isn’t promised…. the answer to where is simple because where is your life?. Where you’re going in life? Where do you want to go in life? And whatever that is, GO FOR IT.
Simple answer: why are you going after your dreams? Why? Sometimes people do things for the wrong reasons in life and honestly, you’re only wasting time and energy on yourself.
I know a lot of people starts to feel like “you don’t understand, I can’t start because of this or because of that.” And I completely understand why someone can’t start on changing their lives for a better opportunity and blessings, however I used to be that person but, a good friend of mine told me that sounds more like an excuse. If you’re someone that always say “I can’t because of this or that” then you’re making excuses for yourself and you’re holding yourself back from being this great/amazing person that you are and I know you can bring greatness to life because we need more people like you in this world. So, how? You’ll start by just starting by planning, by researching and by asking questions or for help. No matter what it is at least you’ve started. So, stop saying you “can’t” and start saying you can……
Nothing you do in life will be enough for those who always have an opinion to pull you away from your dreams. Stay focus on YOU…Yes you, stay focus on YOU and only YOU.
