I have been thinking about how monotonous life has become for me. I want to change this. I want to thrive in my life. I want to edify my character, my mindset and to strive to be the best possible version of myself. I don’t know what that means yet, but I am going to find out.
It is impossible to see what lies ahead out there. I anticipate I will fail and stumble over and over, but I will not stay down or turn around. I will fight this! This fire is burning in me, and I am loving this surge of motivation. I know tomorrow when I wake up this fire will dissipate. I’m going to tell myself to sleep longer. No more. Starting tomorrow I will wake up earlier than I normally do. I will work out. I will work on my novel. Last week I was unemployed. I start my new job on Thursday. I am not getting what I want out of life right now, and that’s entirely because I have not sacrificed enough of myself. I have not put in the work that I need to progress. I have made an obscene amount of excuses for too long. There is immeasurable potential inside me that I have not tapped yet. I will embrace, harness and hone that potential until I feel fulfilled, and even then, I will advance onward.
There is immeasurable potential in YOU that you have not utilized yet. Dig within those depths. I DARE YOU to discover what you can accomplish. Take this journey with me. I will be posting weekly. It is a commitment I will make, for both myself and for you, if you want it. I can’t make you succeed, but in those times when it gets hard, I will be here to keep that faith within yourself alive. Someone important in your life, be it friends or family, has probably told you that your dreams were illogical; that you couldn’t obtain the quality of life that you want. That hurts. It hurts a lot, but when you are in pain is when you need to show the strength of your character. Tune out that dissonance. If you have a dream, it is a natural desire for YOU. You are not your parents, you are not your siblings, cousins, or friends. You are no one else but yourself. What is right or wrong for someone else, might be different for you.
Discipline yourself to break out of your banal routine. Challenge yourself, challenge those around you to pursue with great vigor, vigilance, and unwavering tenacity.
Every week I will post a video, or a snippet, quotes, photographs, and my own progress. I encourage you to join me. Tell me about your goals, your aspirations, your dreams. You can do this. Believe and fight for your life, it is the only one you have.
When it comes to your dreams, be intransigent, be aware, be ferocious, be inspired, but most of all, believe.
