I hear it every day, this came up, that happened, I’ll do it tomorrow, I’m too tired today, I’ll have one more cheat meal, just one won’t hurt me, but it’s protein, or my dog has been alone by itself all day.
No matter what excuses you give yourself, it’s all about how bad we want it for ourselves. No one else has the control over your destiny unless you give them that power! Someone once told me that I could work toward my own dreams or I could work for someone else and work to make their dreams come true.
The one truth that I’ve come to realize is that the reason that most people fail to reach their goals and or dreams is because they do not think that it’s possible. Either because they have forgotten how to dream or because they do not know what to believe in. Then you have those who are just plain LAZY! Believe it or not there are people out there that believe that someone else actually owes you a living.
I’ve found that the key is to put your time and energy into those people who really have a hunger to better themselves. The hungry ones want to change their situation and are willing to do whatever it takes. It’s taken me a very long time to figure this all out and I’m still learning. But I’ve also learned that it’s not about me, it’s about others. Those that are around me that need help to figure it out. It’s about the number of people’s lives that we can effect for the better. I try not to waste my precious time on the barnacles of the world! A barnacle is a creature that attached itself to the bottom of a boat. They can ruin a boat. they sort of suck the life out of it. So watch out for the barnacles in life and scrape them off the moment the they try to latch onto you..
So remember dear reader, if you take away nothing else from these words, you can do anything that you put your mind to. It’s not easy and you will shed a lot of blood, sweat and tears, but it will be worth every bit of it when you see your dreams start to come true and it’s all because you went for it and got out of comfort zone and decided that you were going to do whatever it takes. Because that’s the attitude you will have to have to succeed!!
