What a great rest stop! I was able to take a breather and reconstruct my thoughts on how I wanted to approach VARIABLE #6 of the Chain of Becoming & Staying Inimitable. If you missed out on the previous five variables, please, take the time to read my preceding stories.
I want to begin Part 5 of "The Bougie Instructor", recapping the first four (4) variables into becoming and staying INIMITABLE:
Before I put this story into 5th gear, I want to drive this baby in reverse for a while and talk to you about the "SPONGE", the third element you should foster to becoming and staying INIMITABLE.
Recapping Part 2, you were introduced to three steps on becoming and staying INIMITABLE:
So, if you enjoyed reading my first story, I'm sure you are tuning in to Part 2, "The Mirror". And, you're probably wondering where does a "mirror" fit in to becoming INIMITABLE. Just to refresh your memory, in Part 1 of my story series, I emphasized "PASSION" and why it's important for you to marry your PASSION. I also mentioned that "PASSION" is a key variable in becoming INIMITABLE.
Where do I begin? Let me start with the year 2003, when I graduated nursing school. I knew I wanted to be the best at whatever I did...or at least, close to the best. And, I always wanted to be someone who had the ability and means to change the lives of others for the better. I needed guidance...I needed empowerment...I needed someone to guide me through my journey to help me get to where I wanted to be--on top--or, close to the top.
