Why is freedom so important? Well when you mention freedom, which one are you referring to? Is it financial freedom, freedom from poverty, religious freedom, or is it the freedom to do whatever the hell you want? You know, I’m not very good when it comes to stocks, but one thing I have learned about stocks is that everyone is getting into it for one main reason. And that main reason is so they can make a shit load of money, so they can do whatever they want. They look for that financial freedom, even if they have to stay up late at night and risk losing a lot of money. It’s a risk they’re willing to take just so they never have to worry about money again. You see, freedom will make people do things that may seem crazy to others whether that’s losing a lot of money, breaking rules, or going out of their comfort zone, and doing things they never done before. You see, the reason I think that most people think others are crazy is because of this, they are still a prisoner in their own mind. They lack freedom in their mindset. You see, when you lack freedom in your mindset, you restrict yourself from going out and doing things that may seem like a huge risk to you. Now, yes I understand that a huge risk could lead to a huge lost. But what if you focused on the huge gain that would come from the huge risk? What if you freed yourself from this limited mindset that you have? Just how much of your freedom would you gain? You see, freedom is something that starts in the mind first because you have to tell yourself that you will be free, so you can take actions towards your freedom. It’s like when the slaves were fighting for freedom. They knew one thing and that is that they were going to do anything in order to be free. Therefore they thought about freedom, which led them to taking actions to pursue freedom. Which then led to them actually becoming free. So, you see, you can want freedom in any genre you choose, but you first have to start wanting to have freedom in your mindset before you have it anywhere else. Only then will you see that you can be free, but only if you pursue it.
You know in this world full of dreamers, doers, positivity, negativity, ego, pride, and many more. I have realized something and that something is that the world is what you make of it. You see, so many people live their lives worrying about so many things, caring about what so many people have to say about them, and not taking actions towards things that can change their life. You see, if you do things that stress you out all the time then you will live a stressful life vs. if you do things that you love, then you will find what you are passioned about. Thus living a life full of joy. But either way every thing you do is what you make of it. Whether you choose to be nice to someone or mean, or choose to write a book etc. The point is you choose your world, no one else. You choose whether you want to hang around toxic people all day and people who party more than they grind. You choose whether you will take the highway to success or the get rich quick schemes. You choose whether you will be in the same situation you are in next year and you choose what you think is best for you. So, when you think about your life just remember that it’s yours and you are in control of it. No one else is control of it accept for you. So, live your life the way you want to and build your world unlike anyone else. Because this is your life and you only live it once, so live it the way you want to.
If you want blessings and opportunities to come your way, then you have to get up off your ass and use the gifts that you were blessed with to achieve the things that you want. Because at the end of the day it’s up to you to get you to the place that you want to be.
I have lied, I have cheated, I have stolen, I have been judged, kicked at, yelled at, and I have even given up on myself many times. But for this one time I decided that I was not going to quit. That I was going to tell the truth even when it hurts, that I was going to work for what is mine without taking it from others, and I was going to constantly get back up even when I have been kicked down many times. Because I learned not to give up on myself. I learned self care is more important then anything else. And I learned what my purpose was which motivated me even more to chase after the things that I wanted. Because yes I was a lost dreamer out there searching for things that I was told many times, I wouldn’t achieve. And yes at times it got to me and caused for me to have my own doubts, but I realized that even if others give up on me, I will never give up on myself. So I encourage you lost dreamers out there to keep searching. Keep searching for your dream, stay in your lane and run your own race, and stay consistent on the things that seem hard to do at times. Because chasing a dream is hard it’s hard and the more you work, the more you climb, the harder it will get. But you most embrace that shit and press on. Because the fight you are about to enter isn’t going to play nice with you. It’s going to push you to your limits just to see what you will do about it. Which is why you must fight, you might fight and keep on fighting. Because the problems will come, but you will become strong enough to take them on. So lost dreamers out there dream, dream, dream, DREAM. And don’t stop dreaming until you achieve everything that you have dreamed about.
“All our dreams can come true. If we have the courage to pursue them.”- Walt Disney
I’m picky with what I want to do with my life. I’m picky with who I choose to bring into my life. I’m picky with the way I want my mindset to be. You see, the reason why I am picky is because I choose to live a life that not many will understand. You see, not many people will understand your dreams and that’s ok because it’s not their dream to understand, it’s yours. It’s your responsibility to take your dreams, to hold them, and to care for them even when others choose not too. You have to be the one who defends your dreams and carry them with you wherever you go. You have to be the one who’s constantly on the grind for the dreams that you want, because no one else is going to do it for you. You have to be selective on who you choose to bring into your life, because that person can either add onto the dream or take away from it. Which is why you have to be picky, you have to be picky with the things you want to do with your life. Don’t let anyone tell you how to live your life or tell you what you can, and cannot be, or who you can, and cannot hang around. Live your life to the fullest without any regrets. Imagine a life fulfilled all because you were picky on the things that you wanted in your life, and wasn’t going to let anyone stop you from choosing those things. Now that’s a life worth living and don’t choose anything lesser than that. So be picky, be whoever you want to be. Bring whoever you want to bring into your life, and do the things that you want to do. Because there isn’t nothing wrong with being able to decide for yourself than to have someone else decide for you.
Why does being patient suck? You know since I have begun on my journey of bettering my life and helping others better theirs. I have realize something and that something is that the process sucks. Let’s face it being patient sucks , it’s sucks because you are constantly waiting for something that only you may see. It’s sucks cause you are having faith in something that many may not understand. It’s like painting a picture that is not there cause only you know how you want the picture painted, not anyone else. So why do I say this well I say this because even though the process sucks and being patient sucks at time. At the end of the day, it’s worth it. It’s worth it cause everything you have worked for has came true, everything you were told you wouldn’t achieve you achieved, and every empty bowl of doubt that was told to you was filled by opportunities and achievements to doors that you open. So yes being patient sucks hell it’s suppose to. Because Rome wasn’t builded in a day, but it can be destroyed in one. So I say suck it up and keep it going cause sooner or later you will achieve everything you have worked so hard for just have to KEEP IT GOING.
Let’s talk about understanding different perspectives of people. You see I have came to the conclusion that we all can learn to understand each other if we look at the other’s perspective of things. You see we constantly try to be one sided all the time but what if we walked a mile in the other one’s shoes. What if we not only understood our side but also the other side as well. What if we understood each other’s perspective. I believe this not only helps us look at both sides but it also will help us solve problems that we escalate all because we don’t understand what the other one is trying to say or do. Because at the end of the day it’s all about learning and growing and we can’t do that without working together. So I ask you next time you find yourself in a situation where things seem one sided, try to understand the other’s perspective of the situation. Even if they don’t understand yours at least you can try to understand there’s. Because it’s called creating closer for yourself even if the other one doesn’t wanna have it at least you have it. REMEMBER SELF CARE IS NOT BEING SELFISH.
Even though I might not take everyday actions towards my goals. Doesn’t mean I am not thinking about them. Sometimes I take a break, a break to relax after the constant grind that was put in. Sometimes I need moments to where I just sit still and think not do anything, not move a single muscle, but just sit and think. Think about everything I have achieved before and everything that lies before me which is endless opportunities and possibilities. Take a moment and think of why I’m doing what I’m doing so that on days when I feel down or stuck I can remember why I started in the first place. You see on days like this even though work might not be done physically for my goals they are done mentally. They are done in a way where I’m focusing on improving my mind, soul, and spirit without the physical aspect of it. Because I believe with a strong, growing, and rested mindset you can achieve and take on anything that comes your way.
If you tell yourself you are tired, then you are going to get tired. Because being tired is only in the mind. I don’t get tired. -Lebron James
Do you ever feel like you don’t have anymore ideas? As in you want do something, but you don’t know what to do? Do you ever feel stuck? You see, this happens to me all the time. I’ll come up with some great ideas, I’ll make some plans for my goals then all of a sudden I’m stuck. I’m stuck in a place where I don’t know what to do about my goals. Most of the time I feel like it’s because I’m not asking the questions I should be asking or I’m not putting as much effort into like I should. But, when times like this happen I’ll take a moment and reflect. I love to reflect on the things I have done, not only to remember how far I have came, but also because they help me realize that I can do so much more. You see, I realize that being stuck is a good thing because it gives you time to resupply, refuel, and get back at it again much harder, and much stronger than before. I learned that in order to earn more out of yourself, you must continue to learn more. I have witnessed that if you stop learning, you will stop growing, and therefore you will continue on doing things that will get you nowhere. So, I say too you, if you feel stuck, if you feel as if you aren’t getting anywhere. I ask you to press on. I ask you to ask questions and take action for the things that you are scared to do. Because in order to get yourself out of the hole you are in, you must start on the path of digging yourself out of it.
