my parents that I can do this MY way. that I can be successful.
4) building a relationship w/my clients and getting to know each and every one of them.
5) this job/potential career allows me to think about my own future in ways I've never thought about it before.

that's all I really need to do when I run into a roadblock. and when these reasons are no longer related to this job, that's when I'll walk out.

my colleagues always think I'm corny, but I truly believe we have the potential to make dreams or at least help our clients make their dreams come true. and finding that quick fix to make instant GDC isn't it.

In the process of trying to understand my clients' emotions behind their actions I forget to think about my own.

Like every job it comes with it's ups and downs, some now than others. and this one is definitely a roller coaster ride. I'm always trying to put myself in my clients' shoes to make sure that everything I am recommending is appropriate for their goals. it's so hard to stay on that path when it's so tempting to go on the track that'll make the company and myself the most money. I've seen too many of my colleagues either start on the wrong path or got so frustrated w/doing the right thing that they change paths. but I gotta remind myself to keep my integrity and that doing what's right may not give me the instant gratification but in the end I'll be able to look in the mirror and be proud of who I am.

so in times where reaching quarterly goals seem so far away and the challenges of trying not to leave. I gotta remind myself of the reasons why I worked so hard to get to where I am and why I continue to work 70 hour Weeks.

1) the advancement and growth opportunities are present
2) I love learning about the complete financial picture and passing my knowledge to my clients
3) I am constantly motivated by showing

"I am so mistrustful of my feelings that I've gotten REALLY good at rationalizing myself out of its existence."

Everyone knows I'm not scared of anything. or I should say, they think I'm fearless. but there are a selected few who sees through that.

I just gotta trust myself, what I feel, and time that all will work out for the best in the it has in the past.

everything seems too good to be true. gotta be cautious, so I'm not left with any surprises!
