If I waited until 9am to write I would be completely out of it from not sleeping very well the night before.
I find myself struggling. Struggling to make sense of where my life is going. I had so many things planned out. I worked hard. I stuck to my guns. I kept promises. I showed up everyday. Somehow I still find an empty space within my heart.
Do you ever feel this way? Like you know what you want but you’re not sure how you’re going to get it or when it’s going to happen? I find myself there often as of late. Although my overall plan is set up (for the most part).
It can be tough to live through things of this nature. Remembering how much the end of the journey will mean to you is what keeps you grounded and grinding it out.
Staying focus while giving yourself a small breather in between projects is the key.
Don’t have the same problem I have, which is letting go and relaxing a bit without any of the stress.
I hope this post will stand the test of time and get you through another tough but productive day.
There should be no “catch”. No hidden fees. No fine print. No special relative discounts. No contract clauses. No secret department that can never be reached during business hours.
The only trick to your marketing should be honesty.
Sometimes you wonder how you got to where you are. You wonder if you have been cursed with certain circumstances because of the color of your skin or because of the way you think, or who you are.
Other times you feel like you can do anything and accomplish any goal you set your sights on. Why the back and forth bantering? Why the stress? Why the struggle?
You work hard and stay productive. You give back to the community every single day in small ways. Why must you be punished for being you? That is how life feels to you sometimes.
You step back and realize “I am grateful and thankful for everything, but damn I WANT MORE THAN WHAT I’M GETTING”. This the cycle we tend to go through over the years of our own evolution and growth. We teeter back and forth on the idea of giving more or giving up completely.
When we see no progress or proper and satisfying forward motion we cry inside and hide from others eyes. We accuse people of being at fault. We blame the system.
When are friends don’t feel like our friends anymore we blame them for not understanding our path.
Our perceptions become so weakened at the smallest indication or inadequacy. Our ability to shoot down any and every idea becomes the norm. What we forget about is the fact that where we are is not where we will stay. People change. Weather changes which also changes people. Physical growth, mental growth, spiritual growth. These are all things that force of to put our pants on a little different on each passing day.
What we fear most is the unknown. The things we can not control which for the most part is a lot of shit. So with that we create our own anxieties and pains.
Letting go and just being without some type of reassurance is breath-taking and very risky in our minds.
We as humans want what we can control to the best of our ability. When we lose that, We lose our minds.
Getting lost is a part of the journey.
Embrace it as best as you can.
It will lead to more growth in the long run.
Remember to put in effort where things matter the most to you. What’s the point of living and constantly doing the things you hate?
Get into a rhythm of leaning towards what you enjoy most. Do the things that make you feel enlightened and fulfilled. None of us were put here to be miserable. Yes we might have to struggle a little but it’s only meant to build us up and make us stronger for the life we have wanted and thought about for a very long time.
If it’s still the beginning of the journey for you, like it is for me lets make it count and try sticking to the positive. Lets stay hungry and humble. Don’t marinate in too much bullshit. Just become one with your passion and craft until you get to where you want to be.
I’ll see you there.
What is it that you want? What is it that moves you? What gets your juices flowing?
Whatever it is, put yourself in the right position to receive it on all levels. You can not obtain what should be yours if you’re not looking in the direction of your destination.
Fixate your very being on what is yours. Practice through mental stimulation, and visualization.
You’ll notice things change when your desire to live the life you want is like an itch you can never fully scratch.
But don’t take my advice for it. Just start practicing and see where it takes you.
When you feel like giving up, keep going.
When nothing seems to work, keep going.
When nobody is in your corner, keep going.
When all hell breaks loose, keep going.
When they stop believing in you, keep going.
When the time is wrong, keep going.
When the time is right, keep going.
When you know you still have a little fight left in you, keep going.
Don’t stop just because one thing changed.
Be incredibly passionate about what you do.
Be aware of opportunities 24 hours a day.
Work your ass off.
Become better at embracing change.
Improve your hygiene.
