Transitioning that from nursing to real estate investing this year and have achieved favor from God, from spirit, angels, the universe. And I enjoy it. I mean truly innately enjoy it to the point people tell me when I talk about it, they can hear the light in my voice. They see the glow on me when I discuss it. I truly am enjoying real estate investing. Well, I started out with my first property a couple of months later under contract

And not only can we congratulate ourselves, but is God not congratulating you, too? I'm reminded of the scripture in Matthew, and I don't remember the verse, but it's the parable of the talents. So basically, the guy that had the talent, they just buried it. He was chastised by his master, and his master was like, you ain't doing nothing but what I gave you, basically

But me personally, I consider being successful, as if you're doing the things you want to do every day when you wake up and you're doing what you want to do, like being able to follow your passion is at the top for me, like being able to follow your passion. To me, that is what success is and what makes me feel successful. Because I'm following my dreams. I don't have to beat the drum at nobody else's tune

@Her_Sisu 🙌🏻🎉🎉🎉🙌🏻

If I'm not mistaken, you've written a book or few. You have your doctorate. You have done event planning, and not just little events, but, like, major deals. And this you're raising a son. It's amazing. JL, you thoughtfully and intentionally do the things that you do, and you don't let anything set you back. And you set a goal and you work towards it and you conquer it. You achieve it, and you are the inspiration

And so I heard it the same day you left it. That evening. I did not honor my evening routine because normally what I do is I do my evening routine. And while I'm doing that, I no longer get back on social media is how it's supposed to happen. And that particular evening, I was just like, I can't sleep. Let me do swell. I won't do Instagram or Facebook. I'll do Swell in my mind

And a lot of times where I struggle with things that I authentically am achieving, not the things that religion, society, family expected of me, that I fulfilled, but the things that I truly at my core and my spirit desire to do, and I do it those things I do false humility. Where I'm like, oh, no, it was no big deal. It was nothing

Hi, this is JL, and thank you so much for commenting on this. Wellcast, I also appreciate the feedback emphasizing the importance of celebrating oneself. I phrased it as being one's own number one cheerleader. First cheerleader. It interestingly enough, what I came up with after I created The Swell is I hit a moment of true impostor syndrome, where I'm actually doing the work and achieving results

And I think that if we can have clear eyes and be able to see our strengths as well as our challenges, that creates in my mind a healthier ego. And being able to look at ourselves honestly really allows us to do that. I think too, that if we don't look at self clearly, then we can't be our best selves for others and we're also not necessarily going to see others clearly
article image placeholderBeau Lotto & Lab of Misfits on Instagram: "Many people talk about trying to reduce the size of their ego in the hope that that is where ‘being a better person’ lives. Being better, however, often reflects less the size of your ego, and more its fragility. Arrogance, self-centeredness, emotional dramas that aim to control and narcism can look like ‘a big ego’. When instead they are often learned strategies for masking oneself (and others) from their deep insecurities and fears. @beaulotto 易"
