Working around the clock, cleaning the house, going to soccer practice, trips to the grocery store, shopping for clothes. . . It goes on and on and on. . . You are constantly doing something. So-called things that you are supposed to do. This is your life now. And your life has crafted into some sort of assembly line. This ‘checkbox’ experience has become the norm for human existence. Your dreams were left behind in order to live the life meant for someone else. At one point you had a dream. Creativity permeated the air surrounding you.
Unintentionally you permitted someone to alter your destiny. Simply by being around other people you can mistakenly absorb the negative words they use. You had an idea and tossed it away because some other moron said it was impossible. Perhaps you tried it and failed. The moment you quit- the moment limitations are manufactured.
These limits are keeping you from your destiny. Inhabiting behind this wall for longer than you can remember. Enclosed within this prison of limitations; unknowingly becoming a hostage. So much time has passed. Through this duration you have stumbled upon comfort. Shattering the glass ceiling would be too painful; therefore, dwelling is here is inevitable. Electing to avoid the pain of change.
“I’m too busy.”– – -You have confused motion with action. Through this idleness and inactivity your time is consistently restructured and handed over to distractions. You enrolled your life to the subscription of other’s desires. Engaging in meaningless conversations or cemented on the couch. Conceivably being further limited by parading the beta version of yourself on social media. Crippled.. .Laissez-faire.
In order to grow, one must suffer. Being the opposition of society or loved ones can be painful. Understand that even the creation of you is painful. Birth is painful; therefore, we are born into pain. Never be complacent, yet be comfortable with pain.
Open your arms to the torment. Embark upon the aches and discomforts. Realize that pain catalyzes the changes you seek. Enduring irritation is the key to the unlocking these chains.
Limitations do not exist. If anyone determines you cannot obtain your dreams, it should be you. Never conform.
Internal characterless statements expunge all validity of our progress.
- I just want to be happy.
- I want what’s best for you.
- I hope things get better for me.
These crumbling phrases paralyze the human spirit. Consequently and unknowingly, creating a self-defeating vigor within your brittle mind.
You cannot afford to be ambiguous. The clock is still ticking – time is running out! You must speak clarity and conviction to your soul.
Engage Your Subconscious Mind
Write things down once your thoughts become meaningful or your goals become truth. You must review them. Over and over. And over again- every single day!
The practice of writing things down is an accessory to a powerful mind. Psychologically this practice is proven to increase memory, minimize distractions, and sharpen the brain when you get older. Unload the burdens of your brain. Increase the potentiality.
If ever your emotions inaugurate feelings of defeat or surrender; your true self will override these impromptu notifications. Focus, concentration, and diligence will flow with ease. Contemplations suddenly are disciplined. Circumstances will be viewed from the mountain, not the trenches.
Suffering is the catalyst for growth! Be thankful for it and scream something positive to the bogeyman.
Give birth to a conviction within yourself to DO BETTER!
You must apply discipline and consistency to achieve your goals. You have to plan everyday. Hard work . . . works!- Denzel Washington
An inspiring message from my loving mother:
Where you choose to look will determine how you live.
Having an eternal perspective as your priority will affect your choices and decisions entirely. It will also affect how attached you feel to the things of this world.
Its’ disappointments will no longer feel so crushing. Its’ fears will no longer feel so frightful. Its’ goals will no longer appear so alluring. Because you will have the focus to see what they really are, in light of eternity.
Procrastination: the act or habit of putting off or delaying; especially something requiring immediate attention. The act of willfully delaying the doing of something that should be done.
The hand of the diligent will rule, but the slack hand will be put to forced labor.– Proverbs 12:24
- A promotion. . . but won’t get to work on time.
- To get rich. . . but you’re in the bed.
- To start a company. . . but you’re laying on the couch.
- A healthy relationship. . . but you don’t want to listen to your spouse.
- A clean home. . . you won’t do the dishes.
- Your kids to do well in school. . . but you’re too tired to help them succeed.
Give up: to yield control or possession of or surrender.
When life presents obstacles or uncertainty your behavior shapes into that of a helpless infant.
Unlike the infant you have the ability to help yourself. You can pick yourself up. Nobody else can succeed for you.
Surrendering or giving possession of your desires doesn’t help you. Hold tight to your inclinations and appetites. Let your wishes fuel the manifestation to your destiny. Maintain a stronghold on all of your aspirations.
Work harder. Work smarter. Step back and see the mistakes you’ve made. Visualize what you will do different and see yourself winning. Crying is ok. . . giving up is not an option.
Leave no room for any outcome other than success and you will have just that.
Endurance: from Old French, from endurer ‘make hard’. Additional meaning- the fact or power of enduring an unpleasant or difficult process or situation without giving way.
Be mindful of how diamonds are created; intense heat, pressure, and endurance.
When life becomes difficult you must have the endurance to continue. Press on and pick your head up.
Finish fast or finish slow. Just finish. The pressure and pain are good for you. The obstacles are there shaping the paramount of your legacy.
