Before I begin blogging, I would just like to say that I have been inspired to this by several individuals. This blog aims to promote international exposure, daily thoughts, random thoughts, in addition to my personal interests in finance. Major Moves is my crede. Continually raising the bar in every aspect of my life. Majors is my name and it is my BRAND. Message me if you want to know more....
This morning I woke up with a deep conviction in my heart that it is time for me to move on. Move on past bad habits, past non uplifting words, past negative people, and past doing things that do not align with my goals.
It’s not that I feel like I’m not living “right” but rather I feel like I’m not living to my full potential. Unleashing that potential will likely require me to focus more on not just building one good habit at a time but practicing them all together, if that makes any sense. I think one of the reasons young people do not live up to their full potential is because we spend way to much time bench-marking ourselves against others via social media and other outlets. Really what that means is that we are spending to much time doing other things that make us seemingly “look” better than focusing on things that actually make us better people.
Everyday I have the conscious choice of just doing me or becoming a better me and today I choose to be a better me.

The twenties are an amazing time in life. For most of us it is the first time that we are truly on our own and free to choose our own path. It is an age where we essentially get to start with a clean canvas and begin painting the type of life we have dreamed of since childhood. It is an opportune time to try new things, new jobs, develop new habits and enjoy the lifestyle that comes with having little responsibility and endless amounts of energy.
The twenties are also foundational years for us and should not be wasted or lived unintentionally. With the help of some friends and mentors, the following are some of the best things we could think of to do in order to make the most of your twenties:
As a young adult in these challenging modern times, time is our only luxury. It’s perhaps the last true luxury of our times: it measures what we have done thus far and the many things we have ahead of us. Yet this luxury knows no master, nor any owner. At best, we can try and tame it.
Maybe I (we) should focus less on the future and perhaps the solution is to concentrate on the joy of the process. Lately, I’ve found that shifting the focus to the journey/process rather than the destination slows time down. There are so many things I want to do, but I realize that its going to take time to prepare. With that being said, we must fiercely protect our time. Letting it go idle or letting people waste it is completely unacceptable. Become a master of you time!(Learned that from working in the Investment Banking industry)
Cheerfully and timely,
After departing Amsterdam, we took a short detour on the way to Paris and decided to stop in Brussels. Home of the world’s best beers, waffles, and chocolate. I was in an induced euphoria coma after eating and drinking so much. A Belgian waffle with ice cream, white chocolate, and strawberries accompanied by a Delirium beer had to be one of the top 5 eating experiences of my entire life!
