I should first apologise for not posting last week. Last week was pretty crazy .I got several life blows in the face and so I had my hands pretty full . Moving on , I almost always tell people that your twenties are the proper time to build yourself to be the adult you aspire to be , As a personal development freak , I am always looking for ways to improve sectors of mine that will bring a positive impact in my life. Today I am bringing you things you can do to build yourself much better.
Know your self .
I should hear this more. Knowing yourself is such a life saver. And this isn’t about surface ,it is good that you should know and connect with yourself to a deeper level. This is a crucial step because most times we are so busy building relationships with other people we forget to build ourselves. We are so busy knowing what other people are like but have lil knowledge about ourselves.
It is good to know your weaknesses and strengths . If you don’t everything will be a misfortune or luck
Practice of good interpersonal skills.
Every now and then you meet someone with extraordinary interpersonal skills but chances are, you may not even know it. That’s because you usually notice it only when someone has poor skills in this area.
Someone without good interpersonal skills might take stupid risks or start yelling and screaming at the drop of a hat. You tend to notice these extremes of behavior but you don’t notice it when someone is balanced and even tempered.Cultivate your mental development.Control your character through your thinking. The following are some key things to building good interpersonal skills.
- Knowing what drives, angers, motivates, frustrates, inspires you
- Ability to control unexpected emotions like anger and frustration
- Knowing your own strengths and limitations
- Self confidence
- Taking measured risks
- Taking responsibility
- The ability to stay calm and balanced in stressful situations
- Persistence and perseverance in challenging situations
- Resilience and ability to bounce back from setbacks
- The ability to forgive and forget
Affirm yourself in your own worth.
Babies are born knowing their self-worth; as life moves on, the comments, expectations, and attitudes of other people can wear down this natural sense of self-worth. Self-worth is what enables us to believe that we are capable of doing our best with our talents, of contributing well in society, and that we deserve to lead a fulfilling life. Building it up again is therefore natural, essential, and healthy.
Find support in your group identity.
In order to increase our self-image we enhance the status of the group to which we belong.A social identity is the part of an individual’s self-concept derived from perceived membership in a relevant social group. Feeling like you actually belong somewhere and being Damn proud of it is every humans need . So look into where you belong and be grateful and strongly feel that you are a part of that group and together you are significant members of the society.
Take care of physical aspects of your life.
Live Healthy, eat healthy foods, get enough sleep, exercise regularly, and avoid drugs and alcohol. Practice good hygiene. See friends to build your sense of belonging. Try to do something you enjoy every day.Nourish your social relationships as well,joys and pains are magnified by relationships.

HERE IS THE EASIEST WAY TO PLAN AND UNDERSTAND YOUR BUSINESS
Business model canvas!! Sounds like nuclear physics doesn’t it?
A business model canvas is a tool used by businesses to project what their business is all about briefly.
In contrast to business plan, a business model canvas is so brief .
At the end of this article, there is a template attached, feel free to use it after you have read this article .
Now remember the way you create a business model canvas is very systematic . We have numbered this template to make it a ride on a steep slope.
1. Customer Segments
( WHO ARE YOU TARGETING) Think of your business, very few ( if there are at all) businesses target everyone. Describe your customer. Who are they? What do they want? What do they like?
How old are they?
( WHAT IS YOUR PRODUCT OFFERING THEM)
Say you are a coffee shop. Coffee is coffee. If I sell mine packed in an ordinary cup and yours is in a instagram worthy cup. We know why millenials would buy from you.
The Unique value is not always tangible.
Sometimes it is a cause. If part of your profit goes to charity, people may use it for that sake.
Now that you know who you are trying to sell to and what is special about your product .How are you going to get to them ?
Instagram? A physical shop? An event?
Depending on what they do, find out the different ways they can access your product.
To gain a customer is one thing . To keep a customer is a whole different entity. There are shops you go to buy something and the way a seller accomodates you, focuses on making sure you leave satisfied and not just selling you a product gets you hooked. These are the shops people go back to and tell all their friends about.
5. Revenue sources
What are your customers going to pay for? These are the different services or goods you can offer. Say you sell clothes , you could also charge for styling advice or makeover. How can your premises generate you money as well? Can your office be rented fr a day or a week or more?
Exhaust the different ways you can access money and find out ways that match your cause. For example safe space doubles as a women platform and a women co working space .
These are the things you need to do . If you are running a website, you need things like hosting, writing, photography etc.. . Include everything you have to do for your business to run and
Determine what you need to get the activities done. Funds? Space? Time? People?
Patnering is the new discount. You do not need to have everything. But you can out source what you have and use it to negotiate.
Patnerships helps cut cost and share audience .
9. Cost structure
Now that you know what you will need to run the business, areas you can find partners in , list the things you will incur cost in.
HOLIDAY ACTIVITIES FOR ALL UNIVERSITY STUDENTS
Holiday time ,
A time we have been looking forward to since school started! Blink and share this post if you can relate!
I am a big pro-balance , i believe in late nights, early mornings and coffee but i also believe it is essential to lay back in the Bahamas and have someone bring you a Cool Mojito . So what do you do when you have a month or two of rest. Read On.
A bit Clichè right? But how many of us actually rest at least half of the time during the holiday?
While it is sometimes inevitable to reply that email, Attend that client, making time to take care of you, catch up on your favourite tv show or just sitting and breathing helps clear your brain and make you even more productive.
2. Learn a skill.
What a time to be Alive! Your next skill is literaly a few taps away. This skill can be a hobby you have been looking to get better at like sewing, singing, piano , cooking or something intergral in your career like history taking for new clinical rotation students or something you have wanted to do on the side( you have been talking about how you do not have time, and now Its here! ).
One of the founders of Afyatoon , an animation start-up that provides health education actually learnt how to animate during his summer holiday.
There are some things that are not taught in school and you are probably struggling with such as speaking in public , budgeting , dressing well, healthy living & more. Take time to train yourself on that.
3. Work on your side hustle
Balancing between studies and work is a challenge. Sometimes they are all demanding our time and energy. The holiday time therefore is a great time to focus on this thing , give it a mega push and this push will even save you the hustle when school starts.
4. Learn, explore and grow.
It is really eye-opening to learn a new thing or get to understand a certain topic . This can be a great time to do that. There is vast majority of knowledge and information on blogs, social media and in the actual world for you to learn .
Be curious, google , check out some you tube videos . But most of Enjoy your holiday .
What are you doing this holiday?
