Blogging with Tristan
Public service announcement… Let me reintroduce myself… Hello TJInspires-It's okay to struggle, just never give up on yourself.
My name is Tristan Jackson, my pen name is TJInspires! I have always been a Dreamer! A first generational everything! I live in Houston, Texas. A person who dreams big is an ordinary person. What makes them extraordinary is that they find the courage, heart, and discipline to make that dream come true. They go after their dreams despite the naysayers.
Life is full of setbacks. Sometimes, you’ll give your best effort and still fall flat on your face. This is especially true in the entrepreneurial world, where many new businesses fail to make a profit. You might find yourself in a situation where you can’t get any investors for your brand. Or maybe you didn’t understand current workplace trends and as a consequence, high turnover brought your business crashing down.
A first generational small business owner! I run an online Inspirational Boutique! I also deal with anxiety and depression! My purpose for everything, I do is to inspire people to achieve their dreams in spite of adversity. My life is a story of faith, hope, perseverance, survival, love, heartbreak, compassion, triumphs, and failures. God didn't promise days without pain, laughter, sorrow, sun or rain, but he did promise strength for the day, comfort for the tears, and light for the way. If God brings you to it, He will bring you through it.
I was not born with a golden spoon in my mouth; it was made of white plastic. I was born into the drug life. I knew God had a better plan for my life and was determined to break the generational curses. My lifelong lesson has been to find my own identity in this sometimes crazy and very harsh world.
For much of my life, I kept secrets because of shame. I was called the dark child, dumb, ugly, and stupid. I never had friends to hang out with. I feared bringing people to my house. I feared that if people really knew me, they would reject me. My home was not the one seen on a television screen. Throughout a person’s life, they are faced with different obstacles and challenges. My life in particular has been full of ups and downs related specifically to wanting a better future.
Despite all of the obstacle and challenges, in my life. I was able to graduate high school, college with a Bachelors and Masters degree. Currently in school to pursue my Doctoral Degree from Texas Southern University. Trust God with everything! Never Give Up on Yourself! Everything in our lives happens that way for His reason. "Trust in him at all times, oh people; pour out your heart before him; God is a refuge for us." The Good News: It's easy to trust God when things are going well, but we must believe in Him in all times — good or bad. He will be there for us through it all! God will turn the bad into good!
TJInspires is an online Inspirational Boutique! We have Inspirational and Motivational books, children books, and educational books. A self-published inspirational author, I began writing in 2012. In August 2015, I release my first book: Dream the Impossible. Since 2015, I have released 10 books. God has allowed me to travel the world, inspiring everyone to never give up on their Dreams! In May 2020, I launched #Inspired_Scentz, currently in stock we have candles, and wax melts. We send positive vibes through our scents. We specialize in relaxation, peace, and calm.
1. Do not give up! Not giving up on yourself won’t just make a difference in your own life, it could completely change things for others. You could even serve as an inspiration for others who learn from your success story and use it to get through their own dark times. If you give up now, there’s no telling what the world could miss out on. Many people who have changed the world would never have made their impact if they’d chosen to give up after earlier failures. Staying true to your dreams could transform the world for the better, but only if you refuse to give up on yourself.
2. Keep Moving! Keep Going! Sometimes, it may seem like the only thing keeping you going is positive self-talk. But no matter how hard things get or how much others refuse to believe in you, you control your own destiny.
I pray through my books, academic advising, speaking and in helping others. I wants to inspire everyone to reach their dreams. I wants to reach the silent voices in the world that are searching for hope. A witness to God’s favor and knowing how to rise above every situation.
My message is about Perseverance & Never Giving Up!
