The Talent, Work And Strategy

Black Excellence- Series Two

The Talent, Work and Strategy
"The three pillars to success"- Gary Vee

At least 99.9% of people say they want to be successful but the gag is (*Keke Palmers' voice) people cannot be asked to put in the work. Its' either we make excuses, use fear to disguise our insecurities and even worse, we will adopt the phrase "I'll do it soon" and end up forgetting our plans 5 years down the line. 

This year I will be turning 20 and I am so ecstatic but very scared at the same time. I feel like for the first time in my life, I will be venturing out into the real world and everything that I had been taught at home, school and church will finally be put into practice. Moreover, I now feel like I'm on the route to gradually leave the family nest and embark on the path to build my own. As a person, I've always been a dreamer, the pupil who would daydream about her future mansion when I should off have been paying attention in class. However, that was then and this is now and the question is, how do I now actively achieve this "mansion" that I've been dreaming about since I was 13? How can I actively become the role model that I want to become for my children? I'm sure you've noticed that I've highlighted the word 'actively' and this is probably one of the simplest words but has greater meaning. Now is not the time to be a dreamer, it's now the time to actively make that goal, dream or desire a reality. If you're in the same boat as me, we are at our prime and we should feel so blessed and excited that we have so much time to become whoever we desire to be.

In this series of Black Excellence, it's all about identifying our talents, putting in the work to improve on our talents and forming a strategy to get to where we want to be and of course, we must look great and feel confident as we do this. I always tell people, there's nothing better than looking like a serious candidate and believing that you have already made it. 

For today's outfit, I thought about adding a little pinch of khaki because I honestly felt my outfit looked a little too 'Plain Mary Jane' and I was not feeling it *laughs. This beautifully, structured suede jacket is from Zara and it is simply to die for! It feels and looks expensive and it compliments so many versatile colours such as grey, black, white, burgundy...sighs* the list goes on. 

For any simple outfit, have at least one statement piece to elevate the look. It could be a statement red bag against your all black outfit or a great, oversized camel coat against your basic grey tee and grey skinny jeans. This is how you can achieve an effortless look without trying too hard. 'Effortless and Expensive' my motto to all my outfits. 

I pray you guys are blessed by this post and I hope you remind yourselves on the 3 factors to success and adopt this into your lives just as I am. Until the next entry x
