Earned, Not Self-Dedicated


Titles are earned, not self-dedicated.

“Motivator | Coach | ‘creating and manifesting a lifestyle to change the world’ ” , yet forgets to hop on that 2:00pm conference call to give their personal pitch.

There are plenty of individuals in the world that seem to speak about it but not be about it. Sadly, we live in a culture that demands letters after your name. It’s much easier to catch attention (momentarily) when we wear exclamation points above our heads. However, as quickly as attention is gained, judgement is made. The truthfulness of your character is a mannerism that no one can title. It is a representation to which people ultimately assert their opinions. 

But then again, do we care what people think? Are we moving towards independence or dependence on the “likes” of others? To answer, I’ll refer back to a past blog about character. Character is not a definition of popularity, but a reflection of integrity. To be about your actions for the sake of your own self-discipline is the goal, with respect from others as a consolation. 

Be about your words through action. The best titles are nominated and simultaneously, end up being most truthful. Titles will be granted because your dedication and cause will be noticed. 

Earn, One Day at a Time.
