The Importance of Understanding Rejection: A 360 View of “No”

Hey there folks. Lately, I’ve felt the need to share some words of encouragement in an effort to help those feeling fatigued by the pursuit of their dreams. I’m a believer that a lot of times in life, we as humans go through situations that really test us and force to either grow or shrink. Looking back on my life, I can recall countless experiences that have helped push me to evolve. But as I’ve gotten older, and I like to think wiser, I’ve realized that the things that have happened to me on my journey in life happened not only for my own benefit of growth, but also to help someone else. That is if I’m willing to open up and transparent (which is definitely not an easy thing to do.)

Another Moment with Euphonious K.Z.G.: A Year to Elevate and Celebrate

Hey everyone. It’s Euphonious K.Z.G. again, and Happy New Year!! *bursts out balloons and confetti*. It’s 2018 and I hope you all are feeling good about this New Year.  If you aren’t, no worries.  There is plenty of time to develop a brighter outlook for the rest of the year. I didn’t start my New Year off on the most exciting note, but it was very insightful. Let me back track a bit for you all.

Three Reasons I’m Actually “Thankful” for Trump!

While I might find this man to be morally reprehensible, culturally ignorant, politically unaware, and by all appearances completely narcissistic, today’s post is not actually a bash Trump session. In fact, I can’t believe I’m about to write this, but I think Trump should be thanked.  I know I sound foolish, or perhaps heavily medicated.  However, I do in fact credit Trump with a few “good things.” His political career has served as an eye-opener on three fronts.

Your Dreams are Bigger than the Pettiness and Shade!

I putting out a challenge for personal elevation. Stop concerning yourself with every person that throws you shade. Let go of your pressing desire to return petty for petty.  And please do yourself a favor, and tap into your ability to turn the other cheek.  I’ve come to learn, that sometimes in your effort to seek revenge against someone you think that has wronged you, you are mostly likely accomplishing two things.  One, you’ll be wasting time.  The time you spend plotting and scheming on someone, is time you won’t ever get back.  It could be better spent on your dreams and hustles, but instead you will be giving it someone that won’t contribute to your bank account or happiness. Second, when you seek out revenge, you are allowing whoever wronged you to further consume your energy.  You give them expressed permission and consent to continue to antagonize you.  Not to mention, you prop them up to a position in your life they don’t need to have.

Belief and Faith. Two Things You Need to Pursue Your Dreams

In the today’s world, a value has been placed on everything.  Off the top of your head, I bet many of you could accurately estimate the price of a new iPhone, a pair of Jordan shoes, or a brand new sedan of your choosing.  For some time now, the world has elected to place a price on natural elements of the earth like water, gas, and even oxygen in some luxurious instances.  And of course money has value.  Why do you think so much attention is placed on the U.S. dollar and the Euro?  In spite of all the things society highly values, we somehow devalue two of the most important things a person can own. Belief and Faith.

Are You Living or Surviving?

Hi there folks,

I wanted to take some time out today to share with you all some inspiration.  Over the last few years, I’ve grown to learn more and more about the difference between living and surviving.  I know some of you may be reading this and preparing to write this article off as cliché or an already labored point, but hear me out.  I’m certain this won’t be a waste of your time.

Why You Should Be Happy It’s Monday

Happy Monday everyone, and congrats on making it to another workweek.  I know as a society, we’ve often gotten accustomed to hating Mondays.  We often sigh and complain about Monday being the furthest day from the amazing thing we call the weekend.  It’s within our weekly routine to see this first day of the workweek as this unexciting, gloomy, and dreadful 24 hours that puts an abrupt halt to our two days of fun and rest.  For some, it has become a habit to think of this day as the bringer of new problems at work with the same people they’ve grown to dislike in the confines of their office or cubicle. I know all about the “Monday blues.”  But over the past few years, my outlook of America’s favorite day to hate has changed.

Letter to a Younger Me…What Would You Tell a Younger You?

Dear Younger Self,

Don’t file this away as spam, or as something completely irrelevant.   I want you to take time to really think on the words I’m about to share with you.  Not because I’ve all of a sudden discovered the answers to all of life’s problems.  Or because I desperately want to be another person today.  But instead, look at my letter as words of wisdom from a more knowledgeable you.  Words to help you to be a little less naive about somethings as you get older.   After all besides Jesus, I’m the only that truly knows the real you.  Including the “you” that you try to keep hidden and the “you” that you don’t even know exists yet.
