I’ve got my principles! I’ll never seek the help of anyone younger than I am. I’ve had to think it through over the years and I can’t belittle myself for any reason. You know what? I’d rather remain jobless and starve than walk up to any underaged for help, Justin boasted.
I’m as pretty as Kim Kardashian, oh my! Guys rush me like ants bombard sugar. Check out my DM, it’s full of requests. You know, it’s annoying, none of them matches my specs. Ughhhh! I need a real man, a man who can buy me all the cars in the world and not some jobless riff-raff, 35-year-old Selena exclaimed.
The well-prepared speeches you just read explain the position of some of us. We spend so much time glorifying ourselves that we watch opportunities slip past us. Don’t get it twisted! It’s good to have standards as they help you discipline yourself. However, when they begin to get in the way of achieving great milestones, watch it! I’ve got mine too and I follow them to the letter. It’s sad some of us mix up this thing called values. Hardheadedness and insensibility won’t get you anywhere.
Like Selena, a lot of ladies have missed their grooms. Hi ma’am, you’ve got to see beyond what it looks like now. Who says the jobless riff-raff doesn’t have a future? If he’s got prospects, say YES! (I know a lot of people will crucify me 🤣). To be frank, this ain’t far from the truth.
The essence of all these? Principles are good but they shouldn’t be abused. I’d drop a few examples of principles and I want you to begin to ask yourself if you’ve really got them or you’ve just placed obstacles in your way the whole time.
1. It’s ok to say NO! This could work for an individual who finds it easy to say yes to anything. Funny but true, some people do ridiculous things. Saying no sometimes doesn’t make you a bad person.
2. If I commit to being there, I will be there. This makes people understand that they can rely on you for anything. If you say you’d be somewhere at a certain time, you’d surely be there.
3. Treat others how you want to be treated. This is self-explanatory.
And so on…
I believe you really do understand now that your life principles should give you an edge over your counterparts and not sabotage your life. You know what to do! Review, unlearn and relearn. It’s not too late.
