How easy is it for us to blame everyone and everything that’s wrong in our own lives? We look around ourselves and we find that we are unhappy with the life that only we chose to create. Then there are those that look down on you for being successful and happy and they are the ones that are unhappy with their own lives. There is such a thing as being a great and positive person with the best of intentions towards everyone and everything, and then stuff gets rough and you can’t seem to catch a break. Who doesn’t this happen to? I know what happens to me on a daily basis. One minute things are great and you’re in heaven, and then the next minute it seems like your life is hell.
If you look for pain, dysfunction, drama, being broke, and struggling that means you have looked for every excuse in the book to why you’re not successful. It’s not your childhood or the environment you grew up in because I know some of the most successful in America, & those people are people that have grown up in the worst shitholes of America. Don’t be that lazy bum person that’s full of excuses as to why you’re not winning. You are the only reason you’re not winning in life. This blog isn’t to tear you down, but rather open your eyes.
You can do the same thing over and over and over again expecting different results, but five years later you will still be where you are today. The other option to that horrible situation is that you look up at the mountain in front of you. You can start today to climb that mountain and eventually reach its peak. Maybe not now, but definitely!
I know it’s not easy. Nothing good ever came easy. I’ve been told that my dreams are pipe dreams and that I cannot achieve my dreams. I’ve been told there’s no possible way to achieve my goals and that the things in life that I want I will never be able to do or have. Why? Because your dream died? Mine shouldn’t live? Oh! But my dream will live! I’m going to fight back for what I believe in, what I want to achieve, my own dreams, and my goals. I’m not just fighting for myself! I’m fighting for my friends, my family, and I will make certain I will fight back!
See, the crazy thing about greatness and being a champion, is that no one expected anyone to make it. In that same breath I go out, and I do it anyway just to prove them wrong. Greatness isn’t about having money. Greatness is about the achievements, about doing something great for others, doing stuff when others doubt it, it’s about listening to the doubters, and making those doubters eat their words. Today and each and every day hereafter is the day I will walk all over my enemies. I will reach that moment in my life when I become that person that others can look to and say she went through it and I can do it too. As humans we feed off one another. As humans we tend to look up to someone that’s great like they’re special, but they’re just like everyone else. Everyone is imperfect. Even I have people that I look up too, so that means each and everyone of you are exactly like me.
Each day I’m tested by life in a like manner. If I persist and I continue to try to move forward I will succeed! I’m not a sheep needing prodded by my shepherd. I’m alone, and I don’t live or lie down with the sheep.
I will not hear those who weep or complain. For those who weep and complain are a disease, and that disease is contagious. Let them join the sheep with the rest of the flock. This is not a house of failure, and I will persist until I succeed! Never will I consider defeat even though I know it will happen. When defeat finds me it will not define me, and it will make me stronger. The words I can’t or impossible are simply words of fools. Those foolish words will simply be ripped from my vocabulary forever.
I will toil forever and always keeping mine eyes on the gold and the prize at the end of the road. I know from where the driest desert ends, the new world will arise for myself. I will try again and again defeating each obstacle. I’ll consider every obstacle and derailment a mere detour and challenge to my own profession.
Don’t let the biggest enemy be the enemy within your own mind. I know for myself my own mind is my worst enemy. Whether it’s working out, cleaning the house, or just doing something stupid I have to be the hardest person on myself. I really don’t even give my husband the opportunity to get all over me for anything because I’m so hard on myself. I’ve slowly come to realize that I am my own enemy half of the time. The other half comes from the BS you put with from everyone else.
As I have said at the end of some of my other post… in the Cowboys locker room it says be your best regardless of the circumstances!
