Alex Malone Blog #13 “The Right Fit”

“Your work is going to fill a large part of your life, and the only way to be truly satisfied is to do what you believe is great work. And the only way to do great work is to love what you do.” — Steve Jobs

What’s Up World!

Welcome to another blog post. As always, I really appreciate you investing the time to read this blog. My hope is that you find something valuable to use in your life.

About 5 years ago, I used to dress horrible. I wore clothes that were too big for me, pants that didn’t fit my body type, I was all wrong. It was terrible, and the sad thing is that I actually thought I looked good..

The problem was that I wasn’t able to find the right fit, more importantly I didn’t have anyone that cared enough to help me find that right fit, or so I thought.

Until one day I saw one of my best friends who had just recently just moved back from Chicago, and one of the first things he said to me in complete disgust was “What are you wearing?”

He is a fashion consultant and style guru, and he continues “You aren’t wearing clothes that fit your body.” The next day we went to the clothing store and he got my image right, showed me the clothes I should be wearing for my size and body type.

“Never continue in a job you don’t enjoy. If you’re happy in what you’re doing, you’ll like yourself, you’ll have inner peace. And if you have that, along with physical health, you will have had more success than you could possibly have imagined.” — Johnny Carson

Almost instantly, I felt complete confidence and my attitude adjusted from not being proud of the way I looked, to taking my mindset on how I present and carry myself to the next level. I will forever cherish that moment.

The Point

The reason why I share that story is because so many times we get involved with things, people, and situations that are not the right fit. It may be a job that you arent allowed to use your skills and talents to its full capacity.

It might even be that the people you are around aren’t the right fit because you are growing and they are not, or you have aspirations and ambitions and they want to remain stagnant.

“Everyone has been made for some particular work, and the desire for that work has been put in every heart.” — Rumi

It can be a million different things. However, one thing remains true is that somewhere inside there is something telling you that you don’t have the right fit in some area of your life.

The Challenge

I simply want to present a challenge to you today to assess your life, and ask yourself. How can you find the right fit where you are right now? I am learning and experiencing that in life we have to constantly adapt and grow. Therefore, I will leave you with this. What is the right fit for you?
