Excellence is a choice! Stay hungry!
This weekend is about keeping momentum. Often, the weekend is for hanging out, relaxing, watching sports. You can still accomplish this while not giving up the momentum you have created. What is it that you want to keep going? If you and your spouse had a great week. Keep it going, If you built momentum in school, keep it going, If you have been reading a book or learning a new skill, keep it going. It’s not enough to be good enough. Good enough might give you a good enough life but you have worked enough for a great life. It starts with living your dreams not helping someone else love theirs. Keep it going. Be Blessed! Be Inspired!
Often, people who can do, don’t because they’re afraid of what people who can’t do will say about them doing.
Trevor Noah is one of my favorite people to hear speak or read what he writes. Raw and uncut knowledge is what you get from Mr. Noah.
The story of most people’s lives is right here inside of this quote. Most people who can do won’t do because they care about what others think about them too much. I want to make this very clear, nobody is coming to save you. Nobody is going to hand you your dreams on a silver platter and say “here you go, be great.” Greatness is earned not given.
What are you going to do to stop caring? Consume yourself with yourself. This is not meant for you to be selfish. There is a difference between being happy and being selfish. Define U! You cannot be the best version of yourself worrying about what other people think about your actions and decisions. You can’t please everyone and the only one that matters at the end of the day is you! Every time you hesitate on a decision count down five seconds and GO! Thank you, Mel Robbins for your incredible book “The 5 Second Rule” This book will help you not care about what others think of you. It will also let you find yourself and really know what you’re about. Go get em! Be blessed! Be Inspired!
Success is something that comes at the end of the journey. It certainly makes the success better when you look back on your journey and smile. Today’s blog post is inspired by a story I read about in Think and Grow Rich called 3 Feet From Gold. Long story short a man named R.U. Harby and his Uncle found a shining ore and started digging. After a lot of hard work and money spent the ore just disappeared. They soon stopped digging and gave up. Only 3 feet away from gold. The lessons learned in this story are incredibly useful to my life today. It helps me remember that life isn’t a sprint to see who can do something the fastest, it’s about leaving a legacy behind and having fun while creating it. If you aren’t where you want to be in life don’t harp on that truth. Instead, look towards the future and use the present to claw and crawl your way to the top. Don’t let anyone else tell you that life is over or that you can’t-do this and that because of your age. Don’t stop three feet from your ultimate success. Never stop improving. Be blessed! Be Inspired!
What’s up, Beautiful people! Today we will discuss the importance of being resilient. First, let’s get the proper definition of resilience so that we all understand it can and needs to be applied to your inner database.
Able to withstand or recover quickly from difficult conditions.
Now, I know this is way easier said than done but let’s be honest, everyone in the world is resilient. Want me to prove it? Sure! It’s a fact that you have survived every bad day so far. With this in mind tell me again how you feel you won’t get through the bad times. We as human beings were born to push through adversity. Remember, the first step you ever took? Probably not but the only thing you need to know is that you fell and got back up again and again. Until you built that muscle memory and now you stand tall. Let’s say you were never able to walk. You wake up every day, don’t you? Unfortunately, not everyone is so lucky, so while you are still here on earth breathing every day you are winning. You need to start looking at your life as a blessing and not a burden. Not one of you are here to be average, we all have our strengths and weaknesses but most people focus solely on their weaknesses because they think that’s what will make them better. Hear me out, if you mastered your strengths how much powerful would you be? We work on our weaknesses but focusing on our strengths. Most of you don;t realize that your weaknesses aren’t weaknesses at all. They are walls known as obstacles ready to be knocked down. You can do this! You have every day thus far. No matter how old you are you can change your life for the better. The energy you put out is the energy you get back. You are built for this. Be blessed! Be Inspired!
It’s Monday! That means it’s time to get back to work right, and for those who are crazy like me, we never stop working. Today we will talk about creating a monster. In the past, that saying would mean something negative but let’s spin it. Everyone wants to be a beast until it’s time to do what beasts do. Imagine channeling your inner beast and having a hold on yourself so much that you know when to use it. Well, that starts with creating the best version of you. When i speak to people I often notice that people can’t fix themselves because they don’t even know themselves. Get to know who you are and to do that you need to know where you are going. Success begins in the mirror. Every single day I talk to myself in the mirror, giving myself affirmations, setting goals, making sure I check my ego at the door because nothing kills you more than what you do to yourself. Your monster has to be willing to tune out the negative and dive into the fire with positive energy. The only thing that offsets fear is positive energy. What kind of monster do you want to be? Think on this while you are working on creating positive energy. Be blessed! Be Inspired!
