I believe that education is the portal to making change. Three years ago, when I began volunteering with Big Brothers, I was passionate but not aware of how to put forth my passion and I didn't have the knowledge that I needed for making change. Thankfully, my Big Brothers volunteer coordinator constantly gave me resources such as workshops, conferences, and even movies that would help me learn more. Through the learning and opportunities she provided me with, I have become more self aware, and I now constantly search for new opportunities that will help me become more educated and out spoken so that I am more able to raise awareness for societal issues that require awareness. .

Since my graduation, this is the first time I feel like that I am the part of an organisation.
Actually it's a bit old news but I have been a design mentor in @itucekirdek for almost a year now and it's such a nice feeling to do sth on behalf of my profession.
Mezun olduğumdan beri ilk defa bir organizasyonun parçası olduğumu hissediyorum.
Aslında çok da yeni bir havadis değil ama neredeyse bir yıldır @itucekirdek içerisinde tasarım mentörlüğü veriyorum. Meslek adına karşılıksız bir şeyler yapmak da güzel.
Wow...we got our first testimony today. Young people already taking bold steps to make the world a better place for you and me. After taking KLCA Career Planning 101 and 102, Moses Eyime Akoji created an entertainment website...and he is on his verge to become a web developer. He created the website to share news, education, lifestyle, relationship, self-improvement etc... You can check his website via this link http://Arewahub.com.ng
We hope to get more testimonies. The world would be a better place if we help others to build capacity. Goal 4 of the SDGs (Quality Education already manifesting)
KLCA...investing in growing youths and liberating the leaders in African Youths and citizens. #leadership#careergoals#mentorship#klca#careerplanning

Highly recommend seeking out mentorship and meeting/consulting/brain-storming with a mentor on a regular basis. In school and even at work, I've been assigned mentors... but in my opinion, a true mentor can't simply be assigned to you... you yourself have to identify individuals who you can mesh with and those who motivate you to progress and reach your goals.

HABIT 4: THINK WIN-WIN
Think Win-Win isn't about being nice, nor is it a quick-fix technique. It is a character-based code for human interaction and collaboration.
Most of us learn to base our self-worth on comparisons and competition. We think about succeeding in terms of someone else failing--that is, if I win, you lose; or if you win, I lose. Life becomes a zero-sum game. There is only so much pie to go around, and if you get a big piece, there is less for me; it's not fair, and I'm going to make sure you don't get anymore. We all play the game, but how much fun is it really?
Win-win sees life as a cooperative arena, not a competitive one. Win-win is a frame of mind and heart that constantly seeks mutual benefit in all human interactions.
Win-win means agreements or solutions are mutually beneficial and satisfying. We both get to eat the pie, and it tastes pretty darn good!
A person or organization that approaches conflicts with a win-win attitude possesses three vital character traits:
1) Integrity: sticking with your true feelings, values, and commitments
2) Maturity: expressing your ideas and feelings with courage and consideration for the ideas and feelings of others
3) Abundance Mentality: believing there is plenty for everyone
Many people think in terms of either/or: either you're nice or you're tough. Win-win requires that you be both. It is a balancing act between courage and consideration.
To go for win-win, you not only have to be empathic, but you also have to be confident. You not only have to be considerate and sensitive, you also have to be brave.
To do that--to achieve that balance between courage and consideration--is the essence of real maturity and is fundamental to win-win.
This morning inspiration is bought to you by my favourite Disney princess Tiana. Along with a cute photo from when I got to meet her at Disneyland last year, she was a hard one to get a hold of haha I think it took till the third day when we finally got there. Guess that's just another show of hard work. Even if it was just to meet a Disney princess 😜 No matter what the object is that you are chasing hard work is what will get you there. As the saying goes nothing worth having comes easy ❤️
NWF Group PLC are an animal food manufacturing company and on Monday the 21st of August they are to publish their annual report. The company have had a disappointing start to 2017, with their share price initially falling 25% between January and April before jumping a whopping 20% in August. This leaves their share price 7% down in total for the year and investors will be hoping for positive news on Monday so that the company can continue their recent surge. Keep sharp, keep trading.
Be challenged to identify the ways in which you lead, even when you’re not in a position of leadership. Thanks to @clayscroggins for reminding us that we are all always leaders - we are always in charge of our emotions, thoughts, reactions, and decisions. Check out the latest 3-day #CatalystTrack : How to Lead When You’re Not in Charge.
My biggest challenge towards fulfilling my vision isn't what others think of me or where I grew up. It is nothing outside of me. So taking the responsibility stand only one thing left and that's me. Specifically,
My tendency to go so fast and want it all!!
This limits me and creates a lack of FOCUS. Playing with so many shiny objects I then can tend to spread myself to thin and then no one wins.
However, I have hundreds of more obstacles and excuses yet none will hold me back because I'm committed to stay on track and follow through on what's most important and that' the vision, growing from moving towards the inevitable challenging situations and being a greater giver as a result.
Art doesn't have to be perfect and it doesn't have to make sense, or at least not right away. It's okay to throw down colors and shapes and see what happens. Maybe something will be revealed to you along the way.
I use the canvas to work out extra energy, to process, to make sense of things, and to just have fun. It's also a way to practice mindfulness and letting go. Plus, it feels good to just play. We need play for happy lives! 🖌🎨

We Are ALOT Alike !
I have spent many days here at the lake. All thanks to being able to run my life from ANYWHERE I want too!
A few months ago I joined a fantastic group of individuals who were just like myself .. 1️⃣ Sick & tired of having themselves or their loved ones busting their butts off at work, for minimal pay ..
2️⃣ Tired of doing the same thing day in & day out ..
3️⃣ Wanting more out of their life, including more time freedom, more financial freedom ..
4️⃣ Living paycheck to paycheck ..
5️⃣ Needing a lifestyle change to become the person they want to be!
I CHOSE to make a Change. And that Change took many years to take!
Change is one of the scariest things in an adults life - trust me - it was terrified!
But when I seen how easy it would be to be who I wanted to be, create the life that I could be proud of, be the person my family would be proud of .. I jumped on it!
The video I came across gave me an option that I had NEVER considered before .. it explained how I could start my own business online and how they would coach me through the ENTIRE process.
Using the most INNOVATIVE Marketing System available right now, it changes how we traditionally earn an income.
With lots of encouragement, mentoring and personal development, I am loving what I do. And even more .. I am loving being able to help others do the same.
This Movement is on the rise. With more and more people joining than ever before.
The Choice Is Yours .. Is Now The Time?
Comment below 'More Info' and I will personally reach out to you

Isn't this just the most empowering verse!? Esther's story is one of my favorites. She was put into the king's harem, without really having any choice. It was oppressive and probably very scary for a young woman. But God hadn't abandoned her there. He PLACED her there for such a time as she would save His people. So many messages of hope, obedience, and trusting in God can be found in this story. But I love this reminder that God has specifically put me where He can use me, knowing my gifts and strengths. I can choose to be depressed over difficult circumstances or I can choose to put on my crown and remember my purpose. #mission#ministry#mentorship#guidingwomen#sharingjesus#amwriting#heavennotharvard#godsdaughter#mypurpose
