The Pathway

Im confused and afraid,

What path should I take?

I hear their are only two paths

Which path should I take?

Sometimes I wonder on the side roads

But I know I must keep straight

The devil keeps knocking me off course

But I know I must keep straight

These dirt roads wont last forever

Soon, your path will lead you home

Be Creative, Dont Wait

Have you ever had an idea you wanted to share with others but felt like it wasnt good enough. Well, I know I have. In fact, for the last year I’ve wanted to start my own clothing line but was too afraid to show anyone. We are all creative and have something we want to share with the world. Time waits on no man and we never know when our last day will be. SO why not do everything you always wanted to do. I encourage anyone who has a talent or anything of that nature they want to share to the world to go ahead and go for it. Whats stopping you? Nobody. That’s who. You never know what people will think of your ideas until you show them. Why wait? Start now!

Be Yourself

Everybody wants to be the cool kid. The nice shoes, nice car, nice clothes, the whole nine yards. Living this way is nice and all but sometimes we get too caught up in whose dresses the best and whose the coolest that we forget about the things that matter. Don’t get so caught up in the hype that you forget to be yourself. Believe or not people like you more when you are yourself. BE who God made you and not what other wants you to be. Going through life with this mindset will help you in all aspects of life.

No Friends?

You can’t expect greatness when you’re surrounded by losers. If you have people who are holding you back, questioning  you, or making you feel bad for wanting to do big things in your life, it’s time to kick them to the curb. Find a new group of people. Go and make new friends that encourage you to do better, that hold you accountable for your actions. That’s what it takes at the end of the day. Get in the right room with the right people. Not only will that elevate your state of mind. It will literally put you in the middle of greatness, inspiring you and pushing you to reach that next level of greatness.

What Time Is It?

We all wish that there was more time in the day. When the day is over and we look back at what we accomplished, oftentimes we wonder where all of those hours went. If you’re like me, then time management might be an issue. We’re all just a little bit crunched for time. We say things like “There’s not enough time in the day,” or, “I don’t know where I’ll find the time,” and “I never have time for myself.” But do we actually make time for the things we need to get done. Think about it. With social media being such a huge distraction, maybe it is hard to get things done. We can act like social media isn’t a distraction but truth be told it is. SO what can we do to fix this? There is nothing wrong with checking social sites or even having fun, but lets try to minimize the amount of time we spend on these things.

Failure Is An Option

Failure, as much as it hurts, is an important part of life. In fact, failure is necessary. I have failed more times than I’d like to admit. And I’m not talking about small failures; I’m talking about the kind of failures that make you re-think why you were even in that position in the first place. And, if you’re anything like me, then you’ve also most likely failed many times over. I can’t say that I particularly enjoy failing, but failure, through its life-altering lessons, makes us into better people. In fact, failure is life’s best teacher. Without failure, we wouldn’t know what to do the next time we get into those situations we failed the first time. Failures can be blessings in disguise if we learn from them and adjust accordingly. Don’t be afraid to fail. Go after what you want, and if at first you don’t succeed…you know the rest.

The Marathon Continues

Life is a marathon not a race. We often times look at other peoples situation and look at our own and wonder why we arent where they are in life. Life is a marathon not a race. At this very moment, you might be struggling with school, a job, a career, a relationship, anything. Life is a marathon not a race. Keep grinding, keep working and one day it will pay off. Its hard to look at the future in a positive way when the present is negative. Its hard to go through a tunnel when you cant see the light. But once you go through that tunnel and keep going, eventually you’ll see the light. And once you get into that light, it’ll shine brighter than never before.
