Persistence is Key

What are your dreams?

What do you strive for?

Are you working towards your goals?

Have you hit a roadblock and given up? Why?

If you’re not happy with where you are in life, make a change.

Start chasing your dreams.

You’re never too old to pursue your passions. If you’ve always wanted to do something, but it seemed like you never had the opportunity, and now you’re at a point in your life where you could change your entire way of living, don’t hold yourself back.

Make that leap.

Anything good in life won’t always come easy. There’s always going to be some sort of a fight to get from point A to point B. Your plan A may turn into a plan J when you run into different roadblocks.

Push through the obstacles.

You only have one life to lead, why wouldn’t you strive to make it the best one for yourself? There’s always going to be a different path that you could have taken. You may get a lot of negative feedback from people you thought you could trust.

Ever seen that one Will Smith movie where he wants to make a better future for his son? How hard did he have to work to make his life the way he wanted it? Why wouldn’t that be said for us in real life?

Start your own grind.

Write down your dream. Whatever it is: starting a company, buying a house, writing a novel, moving across the world. Write that down. Do some research if you need to. Make a list of anything and everything you need to do to obtain that dream.

Make your dream your reality.

Plan for your ideal future.

Stop standing in your own way.

For a long time, I let someone hold me back.

Myself.

There was a point that I didn’t want to be where I was anymore, so I made the change that needed to be made.

Right now, I’m building my foundation for the life I want to have.

Anything is possible.

Limit Not Met

Limits. Our worst enemy.

We give ourselves limitations that we don’t even realize we do it.

I’m not talking about all the restrictions our parents gave us growing up, which if you’re still holding onto those you should probably grow up. Go eat ice cream for dinner or stay up passed 9 to watch your TV show.

This is a little deeper.

Self doubt has led us to believe that we are only capable of doing so much in our lives.

“Well I’ve never sang in front of a crowd, so I can’t.”

“I’ve never eaten this type of food so I’ll probably hate it.”

Wrong. Do all of the things you want to do.

Limitations should be thrown out the window. Let’s be brutally honest right here: the only thought that should ever go through your mind when deciding if something is right or wrong for you to do is “will this kill me or be harmful to my mental health?”. Example: don’t jump off a building without safety precautions or eat something you’re allergic to or poisonous. You will die and that’s not what the aim is here.

We are our own worst enemies when it comes to our mindsets.

Think about it. What’s one thing you’ve always wanted to do but haven’t? What is your reasoning for not following through? Is it because you’ve told yourself you would fail? Or has someone else told you that you’d fail and instead of realizing how ridiculous that thought is you held onto it and turned it into your own thought?

Take a look at yourself in the mirror, remind yourself that you’re an amazing individual and are capable of magical things. Might take a few tries, but your negativity will eventually turn positive.

Go out and make memories. These experiences are beautiful.

Screw your negative inner monologue. Go climb your own mountains.

Motivation Resolution 

It’s that time of year again when everyone is pumped to start their year off right. We all hit the ground running telling ourselves that it’s going to be our year; this is the one that is going to change our lives.

After X amount of time, however, we hit a snag and let that completely derail the rest of our year and by the end of the line, we’re over it and wanting the next year to start so we can give it another try.

Every day is a new day. Every moment counts. The highs are beautiful, the lows are dreary.

Through every storm comes a rainbow.

Don’t let a setback define your life; hurdle through it. We make our moments count, positive or negative. Every negative can lead to a positive. 

Be the positivity you seek in your daily life. 

This may be the beginning of 2018, but every day can be the beginning of whatever adventure you wish to seek. 

Carpe diem. 

Happy New Year, everyone.
