Some people grow up at 18, 25, even 30 ive learned a lot so far about building relationships. My father is my idol and my best friend he has taught me more in life and im still learning. Learning never stops and that goes hand in hand with relationships. I even was in a unhealthy one, but there is always two sides to every story, and i realized you have to be happy with yourself to build relationships and move forward with your life. I believe everyone has a talent from god some have many, but one thing doesnt change is your first impression on someone. You ever think you judge a book by its cover too quickly well not everyone knows someones story behind closed doors. Our generation is so messed up because people dont know how to handle social media without getting jealous. They see what everyone else is doing, but dont want to focus on themselves. If i had to elaborate more on everything i said it is life can be as simple as you make it just dont look at someone elses story, and wish you were them, findout what is right for you.

Most people know of and have heard Martin Luther King's I Have A Dream speech but there is another speech that I wish we would heard even more.
It is this one -
" If a man is called to be a street sweeper, he should sweep streets even as Michelangelo painted, or Beethoven composed music, or Shakespeare wrote poetry. He should sweep streets so well that all the hosts of heaven and earth will pause and say, here lived a great street sweeper who did his job well. "
-Martin Luther King Jr
Remove your doubts, fears, excuses and let every rejection motivate you to get the job you want and once you have that job do it better than anyone else.
I recently read a FANTASTIC article that another member here on Jobcase shared - How I Hustled To Get the Perfect Job. It describes the story of a young woman named Ina who wanted to get into the tech industry, but had no way to do so. She proceeded to do everything possible to make herself a desirable candidate for any potential companies.
Ina researched and attended a 3-month long program designed to launch people into great start-ups. She read article after article about startups and life in that culture. She identified the needs of the companies she was interested in, and developed personal projects aimed at showcasing her potential value as an employee.
The moral of the story? Demonstrate to your potential (and ideal) employer that you are worth hiring! Every case is different, and you don’t need to devote your entire life to it, but ask yourself this... How are YOU standing out from every other schmuck that wants a job there? Plain and simple, companies always look for employees that first will get the job done and second go beyond that. They will immediately become interested in you if you can show that you are able to do that. Additionally, taking the time to offer unique insights that they might not even know about will always work in your favor!
So let's think - what can YOU do to show your dream employer that they should hire you?
