Success…I’m Coming for You

Good morning fellow bloggers!


Anyone else feeling their motivation slowly dripping away like my ice cream did this weekend? …same.

So let’s do something to boost it back up!

What have I been doing to regain my drive for success?

Well, nothing too difficult actually. One main thing I have discovered that has really pushed me is a certain TV program. I’ve found that a lot of entrepreneurial shows are emerging recently and I’m loving it!

This particular one is called ‘Buy It Now’. The concept allows regular people like you and me to pitch a product they have invested their time and money in to create. For example, last nights episode showed a young woman who is a teacher. Her product was a non-slip fabric inner sole which supports both the back and base of your foot preventing blisters. She stands on a stage in front of 100 shoppers who have a light above their heads, if they like what they see and hear then they can turn that light green to show they’re interested.

As long as the entrepreneur still has one light left on after the price of the product is revealed, then they move onto talking to some investors of large corporations, for example, JML. So this particular woman had 40 green lights left on and went further to receive 25,500 orders from the investors. Overall, she managed to secure £225,000 in retail value of her products which is absolutely life changing.

One of the many goals I have in life is to create something everyone will love and appreciate like this. At the beginning of my year out working I was always thinking about what could be that next big idea, but the last few months I faded out of that a little bit. So, yesterday I decided to give myself a little pep talk, NO, I have to stick at this and make it my success!

How have I turned this into my motivation?

I have many notebooks, if you have been with me from the start of my blogging you will know this. In my ‘general notes’ book I began to think of problems that need solving in our every day lives, or hindrances to people. For me, this is a great way to get my creative juices flowing and come up with some cool, never seen before products. When I go back to university, I plan to take my ideas one step further and begin to make at least one a reality, so the time I spend planning everything now is vital.

For anyone who wants to do something like this, I promise you, you can do it, there’s no reason for you not to. We can always find a way to achieve what we want. Alongside studying for my final year at university I hope to have a finished or close to finished product ready to go and prove to everyone that you can be any age, at any point in your life to start something new and exciting. Why not be ambitious and start today?

If you are like me and love watching these kind of programs like the one I mentioned above, then definitely worth checking out, it’s on every weekday at 5:30pm on channel 4! (BST)

I Want my Mummy!

Good evening fellow bloggers!


I’m a bit later than usual today, but I had a day off work and obviously had to make the most of it!


 

I hope everyone enjoyed their weekends and haven’t struggled to get through the Monday blues! Good thing is…we’re nearly half way through the month and because it’s February we get a shorter one so that’s kind of a positive (you have to dig for them sometimes).

I had an early Valentines celebration this weekend and being the good girlfriend I am I cooked the boy an indulgent breakfast which consisted of four Nutella filled crepes with a dusting of icing sugar and a side of bacon…here it is (one half eaten).

I’m no professional, but if I do say so myself they looked and tasted like my diet was watching over me! Sometimes you just need a bit of Nutella on a sugary carb blanket!


Anyway…..I’ve been thinking about my future yet again, something that will be happening to me and is fast approaching. I have to decide the exact profession I go into for the rest on my life (screams internally).

Haven’t I already decided that by being at university for two years?

Well yes sort of. See I study Architectural Technology, however I want to do straight Architecture. You may be thinking that there isn’t really a difference between the two. Unfortunately for me there is and if I carry on with my course I cannot call myself an Architect and may be limiting my salary in the far future. However if I decide to do the Architecture course then I am setting myself up for a whole lot more debt and study time.

WHO SAID BEING AN ADULT WAS FUN!

Decision making scares me and I don’t feel adult enough to make them yet. You know when you lose your mum in the supermarket and you have a little panic attack then have to contemplate asking one of the workers to call her over to the reception desk on the tanoy (however you spell it)? That’s the best way I can describe becoming an adult!

I don’t know if I just had a breakdown or helped myself, but if you’ve made it to here I hope you didn’t judge me too much.


Moral: You will always land on your feet and your mum will always find you if you get lost in the fruit section (they have some sort of child radar I think).
