My Mother taught me to never give up on things worth fighting for. This is no easy task. I think as we get older, we realize that things worth having never are easy to obtain.
But if you want to leave this world better than it was when you came into it, you have to start by exceeding your own expectations.
You have to be willing to look inward every day and push past your boundaries. Most times achieving greater things requires you to jump out of your comfort zone.
Sure it will require you to push through your upper limits and face your fears but what’s on the other side of that journey is remarkable.
(Listen to this on podcast:)
There’s a difference between what you will accept and what you can expect from life. I find that many people don’t know the difference.
The world is in protest right now because what has become acceptable in life is unacceptable for humanity.
What’s strange is that the majority of people stay on this track of immobility. Perhaps it’s a misery that keeps in good company just like birds of a feather.
When oppression is happening all around you, it may seem easier to go with the flow but I never have been one of those joiner types. I’ve always loved to beat my own drum and walk down my path less chosen.
Still I have to admit that my focus has made me blind to some things.
I’m watching thousands of people face their biggest fears and stand up to have a voice. Change is happening and we are all witnessing it.
Years of obedience and indifference have created a life that many can’t bare and most of us are oblivious to their struggle.
It’s time for you to rise. It’s time for you to muster up all your courage and tackle those big challenges happening within yourself.
Something needs to shatter that glass floor that has become your imaginary solid ground. Believe me when I tell you, it’s cracked and about to break from under you so let me help you step off of it.
The fictional exsistance that you have come to accept is beyond unbarable and it’s time for a change.
You might ask yourself, why have you permitted this to happen?
How could you be living an intolerable life?
How did you get here?
That moment when you wake up and see things as they are is the dawn of your future. Consider this the first appearance of light in the sky before sunrise.
The time has come for you to rise and fight for the life you want. You must strive for the life you deserve and stop waiting for others to change the world.
I’m going to shock you now.
Are you ready?
The truth is that what you seek is already inside of you. It’s there waiting for you find it and let it free.
Every day you wake up you are given a chance to change your life yet you don’t take that gift. WHY?
We are all put on this earth to do great things. A special light is seeded inside of you that you need to nurture and feed.
It’s not easy. It requires strength, bravery and passion to live a remarkable life. But aren’t extroidinary things worth fighting for?
I hope this letter is reaching deep inside of you and lighting that flame. You’re going to need a little fire to take what you deserve from this incredible world.
As you take those first steps on this new journey, I want to encourage you to set a challenge for yourself every day. Wake up and make those first 2 hours count the most. Those are the golden hours when your mind is refreshed and you are capable of having the kind of life changing clarity that can change the world.
Meditate quietly, write down your thoughts and set your mind in forward motion. This is when you set your goals and seed your expectations.
Those golden hours will change your life and when you change so will the world around you.
Those two little hours every morning that are your sweetest indulgence will become your yellow brick road. It’s during this time that you can lay the foundation for your next step forward.
Set high goals that will challenge you and go after things you are passionate about.
If it’s hard to achieve, then you are probably on the right track.
Don’t give up.
The world breaks all of us at first, but those who can get up and rise after being knocked down are the ones with the strength to change the world.
No one helps those who complain about their weaknesses yet everyone celebrates and admires those who love themselves enough to struggle for something better than they currently have.
Your path may seem like a dense fog right now but be patient, it’s there. It was always there waiting for you.
Have the courage to pay attention to the things that you are naturally drawn to as they are often connected to your purpose.
And when you find your path, don’t be afraid. You need to have courage to forge the journey. You’ll make mistakes that will help you find your way.
Life is a continual journey that should never again feel ordinary if you find your passion and learn how to keep your fires burning bright.
Your destination in life should never be to relax at the end, it should be to enjoy the excitement of not knowing what’s ahead while you challenge yourself to do amazing things that you never thought you could.
Demand better things from yourself and you’ll discover what you were born to.
I write for people who are ready to transform their lives and become the humans they were born to be. Sign up for more here.
