"You were given this life to live,
because you are strong enough to live it."
We must all have a vision for the future. In other words, we must create a compelling future.
If we don't have anything to move towards chances are that we will settle for the way things are. Most people accept the reality that they have been given.
We are not born to play small. We were born to shine our light. We were born to expand, to grow and to live a bigger and brighter version of ourselves.
You can't step into the future with an old way of looking at things. A new life comes from a new mind and a new way of looking at yourself and your life.
It's impossible to step into the future and if you remain constantly thinking about the past. The past cannot be changed, forgotten, edited or erased. It can only be accepted.
The more you ruminate on negative thoughts and your past, the more power you give them. Time to move on. What happened to you in the past - happened. You can allow it to destroy you, or you can allow it to build you up.
It's up to each and everyone of us to step up and take care of our own lives and deal with the consequences of our own action or inaction.
Stay on your own path in life. The path that was designed for you, and only you. If you aren't following your own path you might never realize your own potential.
Keep on moving. Momentum is everything. The less you move, the less you are able to move. Action leads to more action.
Take action today. It doesn't have to be perfect action. Imperfect action is perfect. Do it messy, if you have to. That's OK.
Don't quit, because you do make a difference. Never give up on your dream. The reasons will take you through the storms of life. The reasons you started - think of those when you want to quit and feel like you can't go on. The reasons will comfort you.
You have to have energy when it comes to your dream. You must have a hunger or a burning desire to keep on going.
Be willing to do things today that will give you the tomorrow that you are looking for.
Put together a system in your life. Daily empowering and inspiring rituals. Sometimes they may not be that easy to follow, but I want you to raise your standards for yourself and follow them anyway.
Be committed to doing it long-term. Whether it's easy or not. It doesn't matter. You are going to do it.
Commitment means taking a stand for YOU.
Never let anyone's opinion of you, become your reality. Doubts kills more dreams then failure ever will. Invest in yourself and expect to win.
Only as high as I reach can I grow:
only as far as I seek can I go:
only as deep as I look can I see:
only as much as I dream can I be.
Stand up for your life!!!
