Staying In Your OWN Lane!

 

Image

Let’s stress the importance of staying in your own LANE, meaning worrying less about what other people has going on, because the successes or failures of others benefit you. On their accolades they aren’t going to mention you as a contributor just for being a witness to watching them succeed, so learn to focus on you and stay in your own lane. But know when it’s necessary to go into others lane  because it takes some switching of lanes to get a head sometimes. Switching lanes is networking and knowing when to ask for help; so someone can let you in their lane. Find the right lanes to switch into because switching over in others lanes don’t always get you ahead but don’t be afraid not too, because a leap of faith is needed when moving forward. 

 

Who is that person that challenges you to get up and move forward?

Let's move forward together..

Let’s move forward together..


Have someone in mind? If so, keep them around. And if you don’t we at BNS are here for you.Let’s move forward together! Moving forward daily is key. You don’t have to take big leaps everyday, as long as you make a single step everyday. Take your time and make sure you are making the right steps in your life.

Note: At the end of your day, we should be able to say because of what we did today we are a step closer to where we’re going in life.

I make my own rules; New rules…

Why are their rules?

As children growing up, we often questioned rules. It was hard to understand why so many rules were placed throughout are lives. What people often don’t realize is that there are rules because they likely happened before. There are so many rules/laws; like waiting to drive until your 15 and those rules are mostly for safely. Then there are “rules”, that are of more societal rules that aren’t on paper but we follow them just as if they were that are more of tool of control by society. Set into place to control.

One “rule” being the ideal path of American society. We all have to know what we want to be, go college, get a job, get married, and have kids… And if you don’t do everything exactly the ideal way you are an outcast. There is nothing wrong with the rule, but rules come with limitations.

Its okay to follow the rules but be afraid to break some or make new rules because they aren’t for you is scary. When the rules leave you plagued, you have to make the decision for yourself to find your own rules.
And the most successful who made their own rules and did it their own way, are yelling New rules! You didn’t have to do it the way your father, mother, grandparents, siblings, uncles and aunts did it. Find your own way and make your own rules. “New rules”, that you come up with along the way.

The music you listen to says something about you whether you know it or not….

Music is so influential...

Music is so influential…

No matter you age or sex, a single song can have the power to move you immensely. Music is powerful, we often don’t realize the impact it has on our lives. Let’s use “Boss” our imaginary character as an example. She wakes up to music on her radio alarm. Then on the way to the gym the radio is on playing music. At the gym her headphones are on playing her workout playlist. After her work out on the way home there is the music on the radio again. All before 10 am, she has listened to so much music already. And that isn’t even the entire day; she has yet to go to work or school.

So it is cognitive that Boss is aware of the type of music she is playing, because that music is constantly being imbedded into her mind. The type of music she listens too says something about the type of person she is whether she realizes it or not. Even if not all the way, an inkling of it does. Don’t just allow your ears to be exposed to just anything. Listen to music that moves you, motivates and inspires you.
