A List of People to Always Impress 

January 30, 2018 in Articles - 2 min read

I put together a nice list of people that you absolutely need to impress at all times and here it is:

A List of People to Always Impress

1. Yourself

Uhh yeah, I am just as disappointed in myself as you are because you were probably hoping I would give you a full-on list on people that you need to please all the time. Unfortunately, I couldn’t think of more people worth your time, energy and money besides your own damn self.

Let me tell you something, you need to start flexing on yourself as if you are trying to win yourself over. I need you to go all out for yourself hey – dedicate as much time as possible to hanging out with yourself, dedicate your energy to going on fun excursions all by yourself and dedicate most of your money on buying yourself every little silly thing you claim you need.

Listen, as odd as it may be, the truth is that there are always people who are constantly trying to figure out where you are, who you are with and what you are doing but instead of taking that as an advantage to impress them, confuse them so much and don’t let them figure you out.

Be on a journey to self-discovery. Introduce yourself to yourself, speak highly of yourself when you do – the goal is to impress. Figure out what you are into and what your definition of fun is. If ‘fun’ to you means something as simple as curling up and reading books then be so unnecessarily extra and buy yourself 20 books (if that’s not extra enough for you then wow wrap them up as a gift) – the ultimate goal is to impress.

A guaranteed way to impress someone is by making them try something new. You know what you haven’t tried out yet so make it your priority to make it happen. Document your fun activities, share them and/or keep them in a folder. Focus on consistently impressing yourself, loving yourself, checking up on yourself – focus on you until the focus is on you. Go ahead and put your self-love game on steroids!

    This is amazing and just the point that everyone needs to understand.

  • Saydee February 6, 2018 at

    Im back here. Mainly because I just wrote a post about being ‘wonderfully complex.” We try so hard to change ourselves to impress others that we forget who we are and what we stand for.

  • Dave Kingsbury February 6, 2018 at

    Haha, look after #1 … trouble is, I never fall for my own flattery!

    • Mbalenhle February 9, 2018 at

      Well it’s very important that you learn how to 🤗

      • Dave Kingsbury February 9, 2018 at

        You’re right, because I’m worth it … hey, it works! 😉

  • Kate February 4, 2018 at

    To be honest, I clicked on this with full skepticism like “Okay…? Who should I impress?” But it turned out as inspiring as it is! Lovely post! 🙂

  • The Style of Laura Jane January 31, 2018 at

    Girl this post is beyond true! It’s so true that not even Pinocchio would be able to lie about it! We have to like ourselves and do it for us. Not for a guy, friend, frenemy or family etc. And if any are watching and checking, it simply means that we are entertaining! 🙂 xx

    • Mbalenhle February 1, 2018 at

      Haha. As for that last sentence though 😄🔥🔥! Let them watch! We are on the road to liking ourselves more and spoiling ourselves. Only we know what we have gone through and/or going through so we really need to start being kind to ourselves 🙌💖

  • PS January 31, 2018 at

  • Infinite Living January 31, 2018 at

  • Nosi January 30, 2018 at

    Ok, this was beautifully written!!! Thank you!!!!

  • whatismaria January 30, 2018 at

    Loved this post! Definitely a message we must always remember – we must always be kind to ourselves and treat us as we would a best friend or a significant other 🙂

    • Mbalenhle January 30, 2018 at

      Yuup🙌! That’s true. We need to put that much effort in ourselves too. I’m glad you loved this post 💖🍃

  • Fisayo Adeyemi January 30, 2018 at

    This is a great post, I honestly thought I was going to find a list. Thank you for sharing

    • Mbalenhle January 30, 2018 at

      Haha. I spent hours thinking of more people to impress and this is all I could come up with 😄. And thank you too for reading 💖

  • Cherylene January 30, 2018 at

    Great post! Too often we leave ourselves unhappy in an effort to please others. Focus, time and love needs to be invested in reminding ourselves that we’re important too. Thank you for sharing. Hope all is well. You’ve been missed.😊

    • Mbalenhle January 30, 2018 at

      That is what I had noticed too🙆, we tend to neglect ourselves and focus more on other’s happiness 💔. You are so right, we are also important hence we need to love ourselves more 🙌💖.

      All is well on my side Cherylene although I’ve been so overwhelmed with personal stuff – nothing bad has been happening though🌼. Hope you’ve been holding up just fine too hun 💖

      • Cherylene January 30, 2018 at

        Glad you’re okay. All is well with me. Thank God. Keep praying and trusting God to see you through. Big hug. 😊

  • Victoria de Costa January 30, 2018 at

    Yaaaas honey!💁🏻‍♀️
    I couldn’t have said it better! You hit the nail on the head with this post!🙌🏻 When I read your title of this post, I thought. “Hun, there isn’t anyone else to impress, but yourself. So what are you saying?” And then I read YOURSELF!

    I am going to print this and glue it into my journal, and always go back to it when I need reminding!👌🏼💛

    • Mbalenhle January 30, 2018 at

      😂Imagine me writing a misleading post! I could never do that to yall 😄💖! Always looking out for yall 😁! Haha. I’m glad you enjoyed it my G 🙌

      And you’ll print this?😢 That would really make me happy and it’ll be a great reminder to yourself whenever you read it again🌼💖
