Invest in yourself, BEFORE you invest in someone else!

I am a bonafide cheerleader for any and everyone.  If you are doing something great, I am there to cheer you on to the moon and farther.  Don’t ask me to help you or include me in what you’re doing, I will stop my projects so fast you will hear the brakes squealing.

There is absolutely nothing wrong with helping others but DO NOT forget your goals and aspirations.  I am so guilty of putting my goals on pause, helping someone else succeed with their goal and there I go back to dust my goals off and pick up where I left off.  I am the typical big hearted sap.  I love helping people but I don’t like not getting the same in return.goodness

Here’s what I’ve realized, people will NOT do the same for you as you have for them.  Do NOT expect people to say or do the same thing you would do!  Just because I would give you the shirt of my back, doesn’t mean you are willing to do the same for me or anyone else.  I have come to accept that and I can respect it.  If more people live by this rule I believe there will be less broken hearts, disappointment, and stress in our lives.

I am fortunate that I have realized this before I make this mistake for the five millionth time.
