Throughout my life I have done things to the best of my ability, with a mentor once telling me, “If you’re going to do something, do it right the first time.”
It wasn’t something that stuck right off the bat, it took much practice, learning from doing something half done and then having to go back and do it again. I did this over and over, until, I finally began understanding what my mentor meant, ‘If you’re going to do something, do it right the first time’.
I began realizing that by putting my all into my work and making it well worth it, it more than paid off for me in the long run. It was as if the concrete foundation was set to last forever, of course in a positive sense.
I learned that hard work was recognized, and it brought with it a good reputation.
Through experience, I also learned, not everyone liked doing it right the first time or putting in the hard work; especially lazy people. But, just like people don’t like change, they also don’t like to look bad, which is never my intention. I just have learned that by doing something right the first time, with the best of my ability, saves me not only time, but saves me negative thoughts, and keeps me looking forward to feeling accomplished.
I can’t help that I like success!
When I became a published Author with my first book, IT NEVER HAPPENED, I discovered the true meaning of a wearer of many hats. I had to play not only the writer, but the salesman, and the public relations specialist as well. Taking on the many roles of an Author and Poet, doing public speaking events, engaging with different groups of people, and remaining in a positive spotlight, all came with the title: A Wearer of Many Hats.
Today, I am proud and thankful for the lessons learned along the way of becoming who I am, and for following the lessons to a greater challenge, the outcome being, to make it to the top of the pyramid in complete stardom.
However and whenever it happens, I am here, forever learning, listening, and waiting for my hard work to payoff.
I am a believer. I know it is guaranteed. And, I have the faith that it is yet to become.
A wearer of many hats is a great title to have. Believe me, I speak through experience and life lessons, ones to never bring regret.
