A little pep talk and something to think about with a new year looming…………
YOU don’t live in a postcode; YOU live in a home, the same as everyone else. YOU don’t live in a ‘class’ or are part of a ‘class’; YOU live in a place or an area that generally has more or less belief in itself. YOU live somewhere that has people that either drive themselves to be better. To wake up and know that they will do something that day which will make something better than the day that came before.
YOU may live surrounded by people that are stuck and think because the person next to them is that they must be too. YOU have become the average of the people you spend the most time around, even starting to resemble that person YOU stand in a queue with every day , see on the bus or sit in the lunch room with at work. It is your option if you choose to lead them or you choose to lead leave them, whatever happens do one or the other, change your surroundings.
YOU have expectancies, how high you put them is ONLY up to YOU. YOU can be the person that others surround themselves with and feed energy off but you must realize that even then you must keep looking for someone higher in the food chain. To become a better person in whatever way, physically, mentally or spiritually you must be around those people that inspire you.
Expect to become something. Success breed’s success, motivation breeds motivation. Teams create winners. It’s up to YOU what YOU do with your day, make excuses or go out there and do something positive. Its up to YOU what you pick up and put in your mouth, its not up to some TV or magazine advert. At what stage did you not have choices, YOU had to work to earn the money, to pay for the food. YOU had to put it in your trolley or basket. YOU had to wait and watch it run down the conveyor and pay for it. YOU had to unwrap it. YOU had to cook it. YOu had to put it in your mouth and chew it. Of course YOU had no choice.
Who leads you to water? YOU lead yourself to water and it’s you that decides if you drink it or you don’t. Its up to YOU what in your life YOU choose to pick up and make part of your life or what YOU put down and choose to leave. YOU are NOT a puppet, do not be led by the puppeteers in life, YOU are not the product of a commercial world, YOU should not appear the way others and society expect you to appear.
You are YOU, YOU have your own markings, your own history, and your own future and how you choose to look and feel is up to no one but YOU. Too big, too small, too skinny, too fat, if it’s not you deciding that who the hell outside of YOU has the right too judge! Be wary though don’t fool yourself that you’re happy with what and who YOU are, what you’ve achieved and what you’ve left in life if truly you’re not. BECOME all those things, as there is NOTHING holding you back besides a lowly excuse.
It takes nothing to help someone, to take a moment to change someone’s life, including your own. Take a moment to think how you can change something, pick yourself up right now and do it. THERE is no New Year, there is no Monday or start to the week, we live and breathe in the now. Guess what…. that’s right NOW! Right this second become accountable, write it down, write it below what you intend doing, share it with the others that read this. Do something with your life right now and make yourself something you weren’t.
STOP thinking of reasons why you CAN’T do something. Life is like an injury, you can let it disable you and focus on what YOU can’t do or you can realize that there is so much in life you can still do because of it! List all the things you CAN do with the resources you have and take it away from a thought and turn it into something real.
We fall in life so we can pick ourselves up. We are assured that in life nothing is a certainty besides the fact we live and we die. Leave a legacy, however big or small, but build it now as for some tomorrow will never come. There is a word called CAN’T, whether you choose to use it will reflect more on you than anything else.
I have failed in life but I have also succeeded, I will never utter the words I CAN’T though.
