Do not be quick to dismiss the effort of others. Nowadays we leave people behind because they don’t fit our specific needs at that specific time. That’s a dangerous way to live. Not everyone in your life is a superstar but they do serve different purposes in your life. Think about your closest friends, not all of them are the same or even do the same things for you. this is the same with anyone in your life. I network for a living. Part of my job is to access what type of person I’m dealing with and act accordingly. Here me out, I’m in no way saying hold on to people who provide ZERO value to your life. Leave those people behind. The lazy individuals in your life are weighing you down, move on.
The most important thing to remember in this is to make sure you don’t become the friend that is holding anyone back. This takes a lot of self-awareness and courage to admit that change is needed. Nobody is perfect, especially you, nor am I. Keep your head on straight and make life happen for you. Be blessed!
We’re back! Before we get started on today’s topic I want to thank each and every one of you that have supported my vision thus far. I had to take a brief spiritual break and get my mind right so to speak. Have you ever found yourself not practicing what you preach? Well, that started to be me and the insane thing was I didn’t even know it until it was too late. You lose a few things during times of uncertainty. It’s important to remember that you haven’t lost yourself. The person you want to be is in there.
Do not stray too far from your narrative in times when you notice that you aren’t living how you want to live. You will be humbled and it will hurt. That’s the beautiful part to me. If your humbled moments don’t hurt you, then it never meant a lot to you to begin with and that’s the real tragedy. Any real struggle you go through has beauty in the pathway. For me and maybe I’m cynical but the roadblocks itself are the beauty to me. I love forks in the road. I love having to make a decision to see where it takes me. I used to operate alone in these moments but now I have my faith in God with me. The pressure lifted off of my shoulders is so refreshing and by the grace of God, I will continue this journey with an open mind and heart.
The point here is to not be afraid of failure. Do not be afraid of mistakes. Believe that you are on the path of the righteous and let go of all fear. Roadblocks can be pretty if you look at them without fear. Be blessed! Be Inspired!
It’s the Weekend. Party time, right? Hell no! It’s the end of February and please stop me if I’m the only one thinking that it’s been 2018 for about 11 months already. This year seems like it’s dragging for some of you because you have legit ben lazy at times. For those of you who are working hard and getting after it, this year feels like it’s going by so fast. It’s already March for the people who are waking up and giving maximum effort. This weekend is the weekend you START to give that effort. No more waiting for the perfect time, it’s here and now. Right now start to make the change. Do not look up and realize it’s June and you haven’t gotten started. Commit and execute. Be Blessed! Be Inspired!
Tell me and I forget. Teach me and I remember. Involve me and I learn.
I love this quote by Benjamin Franklin because it reminds me that I need to involved in change in order for it to work. It’s not enough to tell someone what is right and wrong or even teach them for that matter. Real change comes from being involved in the situations that you learn from. Have you ever heard the saying “Give a man a fish, and you feed him for a day. Teach a man to fish, and you feed him for a lifetime.” That is undeniably the truth but that man will still not eat if he doesn’t go out to actually catch that fish. Get involved in what is important to you and watch your life take a turn for the better. If the goal isn’t to move forward, then what’s the point? Make a difference. Be Blessed! Be Inspired!
Straight motivation today. You can fo this! Whatever this is for you just know that you got this! Too many people hear or spread so much negativity that it becomes a part of their life. Do not fall victim to this energy. If you’re saying “that’s not me, never” let me tell to stop that right now. Don’t be naive to the fact that you too can fall into this mindset. Respect the process and dont take those baby steps for granted. Get out there this weekend and make it happen for you and your loves ones. Be Blessed! Be Inspired!
We all make mistakes. It should go without saying but we seem to have to say it all too often. What most of us do is let our mistake get us down and out. I’m guilty of this as well. The mistake is made, you apologize, and try your hardest to move on and move forward. You become stagnant and still, waiting for validation to move on. In this negative space, we end up adopting the feeling. We get used to being in that space and hold on to our vices. Some eat a lot, some get lazy, some get really focused on one thing. This is dangerous to who you are because it becomes more about coping than it does about living. Do not let your mistakes define who you are trying to become. You still have worth, do not ever forget that. You do not need the validation of those you hurt to move on. It is easy to feel that you do need the permission to feel good about yourself again but that is not up to anyone else. You control you. the best thing you can do is look your consequence in the face and embrace the work that comes afterward. Use your mistakes as stepping stones Don’t let them kill you. Be blessed! Be Inspired!
We all search for the good in life and the path can be dangerous as hell. The danger is that is the obstacles we face when looking for something good we aren’t always ready for. Here’s the easy solution. Do not search for the good, let it happen. Let the good things happen through your habits instead of chasing the trophy. Most of us chase the glory and fame as if that will give us all the happiness in the world. Subconsciously that is what we are taught but it’s just a smoke screen to real happiness. I’ve learned that happiness is the temporary satisfaction we look for but joy is the real goal. Stop chasing the finish line and work. Let the chips fall where they fall. Be blessed! Be Inspired!
