I was on my way to a workshop about ‘having an entrepreneurial mindset.’ When checking in, I found this button with the letter F. It was catchy and colourful, and I was instantly drawn to it. Without looking at the associated company, the first word I linked F to was FORWARD. FORWARD came to mind because it reminds me of my journey:
- How I kept pushing myself even though there were lots of barriers to the point where it became frustrating and confusing.
- How I kept creating a momentum even though I thought it was insignificant.
- How I never stopped entirely but kept cruising to my current point in life.
Also, when I think of Forward, Maurice Bishop comes to mind with the quote “forward ever, backward never.” He used this quote to inspire the country to obtain growth on various levels. This quote is so powerful that it shouldn’t only apply to nations, but people, as they are the ones that form a country.
Forward is being able to understand me enough to want to make changes/movements. Understanding myself comes from interacting with all situations that appear in my life — learning from every experience I encounter because I will adapt to my environment and consistently be creative.
Forward is always going irrespective to the progress I see from other people. Everyone is different, and as such, every movement is unique. So I never become discouraged when I see others going at ridiculous speeds. At times, It’s always good to take the scenic routes; I get to take in life and pick up some valuable lessons along the way.
F means forward to me, what does it mean to you?
Not sure who Maurice Bishop is??
