I've had people tell me that I'm a breath of "FRESH" air, that I bring "FRESH" ideas and perspectives and I keep things "FRESH" and lively. That made me think, what does "FRESH" mean?
The dictionary says "FRESH" is slang for something that is exciting, appealing and great. Wow, if I make things "FRESH" that's a huge compliment!
I started to think, how do I do that and what does "FRESH" mean to me? It took some time, but here's what I came up with.
For anything you want to do in life you have to do the following:
#1 You have to really focus on what you what you want and need to do.
#2 You have to be resourceful. You're never going to have everything you need. You have to figure out the resources you have and the resources you need to gain.
#3 When something or someone is important to you, you have to be enthusiastic. You have to be positive. You have to think about what you can do, no what you can't do. You have to bring a positive, can do attitude.
#4 Tough times are going to happen, so you must stay mentally strong. Strength is something you build and develop. Are you connecting with people who are mentally strong or mentally weak? Where the mind goes the body will follow. You have to believe in what you're doing.
#5 You have to be honest. Not only with the people around, but most importantly you must be honest with yourself. You have to look yourself in the mirror and admit what you're good at and what you can improve on. When you need help you ask for it. When you lie to yourself, you're lie to others and finally you end up living a lie which means you're not living the life you wanted.
When you keep things "FRESH", make things "FRESH", or even "FRESHen" things up, you're living a life that is exciting, appealing and great. To live "FRESH," you have to ask yourself "R U FRESH?" Are you Focused enough, Resourceful enough, Enthusiastic enough, Strong enough and Honest enough to make your life "FRESH?" Do you just talk about your personal and professional dreams or do you make your personal and professional dreams come true?
Have a great week and be "FRESH."
