Why I started this blog

Hello Friends,

First and foremost, thank you for visiting my blog.  This is what I hope to be my first blog out of many.  I've decided to start this blog because I have noticed how tough these times have my been for my generation, which is XYZ.  Due to the recent economic meltdown, many graduating students have been faced with the problem of not having a job after graduation.  Many have sought to attend graduate school and upon graduating are still faced with the scarcity of jobs.

My friends it is times like this where you have to "BE STRONG".and "KEEP YOUR FAITH"  Right now you may have applied for 20 jobs and still haven't had any success.  You may have applied for 20 graduate schools and still no luck.  I am here to tell you to keep going.  The door to opportunity is right in front of you; it's just a matter if you open it because it is not going anywhere.  Take a moment and think..What will happen if you decided to get a LOSER's mentality and give up?  Who would you be hurting?  Surely not these large fortune 500 companies or these big universities.  The only person that you will be hurting is yourself and your love ones.  Don't make excuses of why you are not having any success, but come up with solutions on how to gain success.  Your mind is your greatest asset.  Use it and don't let it be your greatest liability!

The power of positive thinking is so important.  If you go around the day with a positive attitude, you will be amazed on how different things will be.  So what your boss made you mad or you got a F on your test.  Don't go around complaining about it, but accept it and move on.  Holding on to the past will tarnish your future.  Negative thinking is poisonous to yourself and people around you.  Who likes to be around someone always complaining or making excuses???  If you do, then you are probably that person.  My friends that are struggling, you are living a testimony right now.  Five years from now you are going to look back at this moment and see how you endured the struggles and you came out a winner.  You will be a blessing on other's lives because you will share your story and coach them on how they will accomplish their goals.

In closing I am going to leave you with a quote from a wise man..."Your only limitations are the ones you set up in your mind"...Napoleon Hill

Until next time - Dre Lewis
