Fear, Doubt and Your Past Stopping You From Pursuing the Paralegal Career?

Fear, Doubt and Your Past Stopping You From Pursuing the Paralegal Career?

  1. Failure is a-ok. The valley is where you learn the greatest lessons.
  2. Investigate thoroughly whether a career is right for you.
  3. You have to begin traveling down the path to explore properly. Jump!
  4. If the path is not a fit, change paths. It definitely will not be easy.
  5. Along the way you will experience hurdles. Learning how to jump those hurdles will make you more confident and stronger. It’s so much about finding solutions.
  6. All of the above will build character.
  7. Stop the negative self-talk.
  8. Discover people who have similar goals or who have already been down the same path.
  9. Continue to dream.
  10. Be thankful for those who do support and love you. Gratitude is important.
  11. Remember that God is right there listening. He knew you before you were born and has a plan and purpose for your life.
  12. People may try to pile their own insecurities on you. Don’t allow it.
  13. Your journey and the strength you display as you push forward will inspire others greatly. Overcoming makes an impact.
  14. Having too many “yes” people around you can be detrimental because they never challenge you along your journey.

Happy on the Journey

Happy on the Journey.  Seriously?

It can certainly feel like forever as we work toward our goal or end game, right? Time seems to pass so slowly and it seems as if we’ll never get there.

The journey, though, is an education in itself, so what can we do to enjoy it more?

Here are some questions to ask yourself:

1. What are you grateful for?

List the people, furbabies & material items you’re grateful for. Count your current blessings.

2.  What’s one important lesson learned today?

Is there something that occurred today (good or bad) that taught you something? Count it all joy.  Whether it’s a good or bad experience, the Lord is developing character traits in you that can be used for good.  And if you allow it, all of your bad habits will be eliminated, one by one.

3.  When you look back one year from today, what will you see?

There’s no reason to wait to begin moving toward the dream that God has placed on your heart and in your mind. Go for it! One year from now, you’ll be amazed at your progress.

4.  Have you made some progress already?

If so, write it down on your computer, in a notebook or create a journal to track your moments. And don’t forget to celebrate your progress along the way.

With effort and an “I can do it!” attitude, you will make it. Keep the faith and keep going forward.
