Don’t allow for your dreams or goals to be considered a strikeout before you even step up to the plate. Must be willing to give it a swing before the home run happens. -Anthony Baisden
Something I have learned in my life is that fear is bullshit that we allow to enter our mind to prevent us from taking that extra step towards our goals.
So many people wanna quit early on the grind without realizing why they even started on it.
People are gonna judge those who dream big. So say fuck them and dream big anyways. Dream so big your haters wouldn’t even be able to touch you. Let everything you say and do frighten the hell out of your enemies and keep them up at night.
Starting off I want to say how at times I get tired of posting quotes. Not because I don’t want to do it anymore or anything like that, but mainly because I told myself that I will do more than post quotes. Told myself that I will actually cause a change not just with the words I say but with the things I do, with the actions I take, with the goals I achieve, and with the vision I see. You see, my goal isn’t to post motivational quotes all the time, it’s actually going out there and showing people that I actually want you to succeed, I want to cause a change in this world, and I would like for you to help me out. You see, we can cause a change in many ways in this world, whether it’s the things we say, the clothes we wear, the visions we have, the people we choose to help, or the energy we choose to give off. Whether it’s positive or negative we are still giving off a change to the world in some way. I feel even when we are going through tough times like the ones we are having now, we can still find a way to keep hope alive or even provide motivation to one another to keep each other going. Times like this remind me of why we are here and it isn’t to be scared and run away from our problems. It’s to face our problems head on which make us stronger and help us change the world for the better. But in order to change the world, each one of us must take the time to start with ourselves rather than start with someone else. You see, we can’t change the world if we can’t even change ourselves first. Have to remember it all starts with us and what we choose to do everyday.
Starting off I want to tell you to not GIVE A DAMN about what someone says about you. You see people are going to disagree with things that they don’t really understand, they are going to judge people who they don’t really know much about, and they are going to talk about you no matter what you do. Now yes, you could scream, you could fight, and you could tell them how they aren’t going to be shit back. But guess what it only slows down your progress and shows them that you care about what they have to say, causing for them to constantly keep doing it. You see I feel like you have to not give a damn about what people say about you, because people are going to find something to say about you whether you are doing good or bad, but as long as you don’t give a damn about what they have to say then you won’t become affected by them. So #1 DON’T GIVE A DAMN ABOUT WHAT PEOPLE SAY ABOUT YOU, #2 Keep going, trust me your dreams are on the way, and #3 as soon as you start not GIVING A DAMN about what people say about you , then you’ll start achieving things you have always wanted to achieve.
“Don’t care what people say. Don’t give a damn about their laws.”-Edith Piaf
We are all different people, who move in different ways, who act a certain way, who live a certain way, and who dream certain things. You see my time in the navy has brought me around so many people from so many different backgrounds. You see the navy has taught me many things about people and the reason most of them act the way they do. I have learned why people are rude to others, I have learned why people have so much respect for people even when that person doesn’t respect them, and I have learned why we do the things we do. It mainly has something to do with how we grew up. You see even though we are young the things that we go through, learn from, and grow from when we are young stays with us as we get older. Turning us into the person we are today. You see we allow our past to shape us, break us, and make us into the person we become. But I feel like we can also learn from the present, we can also learn from the things we are currently doing so that we can perfect the things we will do in the future. You see it’s all about perfecting you, it’s all about the new you that’s to come in the future. So I say this, try to connect with different people, because you never know if you might have something in common with them.

I have learned that sometimes in life you have to have some alone time. Could be when you are having a bad day and every little thing gets to you, could be when you have spent so much time around family and friends and you want to just break away for a bit, and finally could simply just be because you want to have some me time. I know for me I enjoy being alone at times since most of my great ideas actually comes from me being alone. That’s one reason why my website came into play just by me being alone with my thoughts. I also enjoy the feeling of not having to worry about anyone else in that moment cause it’s just you. So I say yes spend time with family and friends, but also spend time with yourself, enjoy your own company, because being alone to me is where the best ideas come from.
