I’ve always seen those 40 under 40 awards being given by Forbes and in my Country, Trinidad & Tobago. I was determined to make the list! That dream did not come to reality, but I’m not letting that stop me from acknowledging how far I have come in my life and business.
So I’m creating my own 40 under 40 list of accomplishments! I always ask my audience what they appreciate and love the most about me. This helps me to understand the impact I make and what I can do to be better. I love to record my wins, big and small. It allows me to express more gratitude when I accomplish a goal.
Without further ado, here is my list of 40 things I accomplished under the age of 40.

I am sure you can list accomplishments according to your age too! When you are focused on your goals, you would make steps that will make you more experienced in your field. If you notice, there was a lull in my life from 28 – 36. That was the time when my business had crashed. I lost focus and found myself just existing (and having babies. LOL).
If you know my story, you would know that at age 36, my life changed when I decided that I deserved better. Business has changed my life! It gives me the opportunity to serve as well as change the lives of others. If I was not consistent and determined to succeed, I know of a few lives that would not have hope today.
As I enter the 40’s club, I know now, more than ever, that giving up is NOT an option. I get tired, yes, however, my dreams won’t let me come to a stop. This year, I hope (and I’m quite determined) to take my life to another level.
Yes! I have rewarded myself with my own 40 under 40!
Let me know some of your accomplishments that make you proud of yourself in the comments below.
