It’s a been a while since I last published one of these hasn’t it?
No matter where you are or how good you are, there will always be someone who doesn’t like you. It isn’t the end of world and it actually hardly matters at all in the grand scheme of things.
To get what you want, you have to fight your corner. And I mean fight. If you don’t speak up for yourself you’ll be pushed back by someone else speaking up for themselves.
Novelty always wears off no matter how far you go. I’ve been to London so many times these past few weeks that nothing about it feels grand or intimidating anymore. It still feels exciting – and so does Manchester, but not intimidating. The ‘new’ novelty has gone.
There are more than two sides to every story. Since working for a PR agency I’ve been starting to understand how important choosing your words is. I recently saw two newspapers report on the exact same thing in completely opposite ways. The key lesson here I think is if you’re not hearing something straight – and I mean straight – from the horse’s mouth don’t let yourself believe it 100%.
Attitude is everything. My attitude decides my day, it’s as simple as that.
