I have to tell someone!

Hello all

Here I am again, blogging!

It’s been a while since I’ve blogged, and it has been deliberate. I’ve been taking my exams for my legal practice course and I’m pleased to inform you that I have passed all my first year exams! Wohooo. 

I’ve also been working tirelessly on making my book “What They Don’t Tell You About University” a success. On July 8th the book was launched at the prestigious City Hall in London, and the support was great. Thanks to all of you who made and appearance and bought my books. (See http://crystaldebrah.com/events for pictures).

All the above demonstrates that I’ve not had a proper break since early September last year and I deserve one!
Well since the launch I’ve taken time out to review my life and start developing a strong sense of confidence within myself. I’ve done this by pushing myself to undertake further speaking engagements, attend conferences and read books on confidence.

Seeing as I’m such a good person, I’ll share what I’ve learned… are you ready? Ok, read on...

1. If you don’t embark on something because of fear, you’ll never progress. You will regret it when you’re old.

2. Life is for living, not spectating. The way I see it, you get one life and there is no point living a dull one.

3. If your “dream” requires the help of others, then it’s worth doing. If you can do it yourself then you’re not pushing yourself hard enough.

4. Be like a child! Yes, I said it, be like a child. Kids have imagination and believe they can do anything, therefore they have a go and don’t worry about looking silly in front of other people. Such people are unstoppable.

5. Watch out for distractions. I find that when I have to get something done everything tries to grab my attention,
but I condition my mind to remain focused.

Remember, it’s great to dream, but even better to be active about it.

Until next time.

I empower young adults to transition successfully from school to the real world. WHY? It's needed! Just remember what it was like for you. HOW? Through inspirational self-help books , story telling and impactful workshops, seminars and conferences. WHO AM I: I'm the person who sees a need and creates a practical solution to solve it. I'm the first one in my family to have gone to university and found the "school to university" transition tough. I did terribly in my first year. Yet through asking questions, learning the ropes and pure determination I went from a 3rd class degree to a 2:1. This inspired my first award winning book, "What They Don't Tell You about University", (which got published when I was at Law School). The sequel, "What They Don't Tell You When You Graduate" followed and is packed with crucial advice for the new graduate! I've given advice to the masses through The Telegraph, BBC radio and London Live. My speaking engagements range from educational institutions to corporates to government departments.
