What Do You Hold On To When Your World Stops?
Today I want to talk about being real with yourself and taking full responsibility for your life. Change takes place outside of your comfort zone, but I am here to tell you that stepping outside of your comfort zone is worth it. When you know yourself, you become empowered. When you own yourself, you become invincible.
We live in a society influenced by social media. For some reason, everybody's okay with just sitting in the bleachers and watching other people live their dreams. I want to challenge you to stop being a spectator in the game of life.
Out of seven billion people in the world, there's only one of you.
There are people in the world who need your message. They will never receive it if you're too afraid to speak in public. There are people in the world who need your love and support, but they'll never get it if you can't learn to love yourself.
Stop talking yourself out of your greatness. Stop making excuses. Your feelings are real, but your feelings aren't always correct. When your feelings make you believe that you're not enough, stand up and show yourself that you are!
How many of you have worked the job worked a job that you hate? How many of you went to school for years? You have the ability to be consistent. If you can go to work or school every single day for years, you can stick to your goals. If you can stay consistent when doing so is essential for you to subsist, you can exercise that same consistency toward facets of life that will make you feel truly alive.
Stop giving yourself the excuse that you're not consistent enough, because you are! You've shown yourself that you are, and you have the ability to apply that consistency to any area of your life that you desire.
Build a life that you can be proud of. When you get to the end of the year, I want you to be able to say, "this was the best year of my life."
All it takes is a small step to start moving forward. Life is right in front of you, and it's running out! There is no second chance after this life, so stop putting your goals off till tomorrow, or next month, or next year. Stop accruing regrets.
Do you want to look back at your life and know you accomplished your goals? Stop wasting your life. No matter how large the odds seem, you can't afford to give up on life. This life is the only one you've got, and you're the only person like you.
For the sake of everyone on earth, keep pushing forward. For the sake of yourself, build a life that you're proud of. You have a choice—you can wait for tomorrow and watch as your chances pass by. Or, you can face everything and rise. You can go for it! You can choose to live a life of fulfillment. The choice is yours.
It all starts with you.
