You Need to Fail Sometimes
People have tried to put me in a box most of my life. You are so much more than that box. You are more than peoples' opinions. For most of us, we constantly believe these limitations people put on us. Most people operate solely on their limitations and not their aspirations. They know what they can't do, rather than what they can.
Nobody can stop you from believing except you. Stop letting other peoples' opinions shape your destiny. You need to shape your destiny. Their life isn't yours. It's your life. It is only about what you think you can do and what you can accomplish.
Some of us stop trying because we fail. Failure is part of the journey to success. People that make it happen with their life aren't exempt from failure, they just don't surrender to it. You are more than your failures. Believe that who you were is not who you are.
Stop waiting for people to tell you that you can do it. Those things feel good, but you can't let that dictate your life. So many of us have already broken the promises we made to ourselves at the beginning of the year. You are more than the failures you experience. So many doors have to stay closed before you can walk through the right ones.
I am tired of watching people waste their life. Stop complaining about things you can change.
You need to stop listening to the wrong people. Don't listen to the people in the bleachers that don't have the courage to get into the game of life. You are allowing them to control your life from the sidelines. You better start taking ownership of your life and stop being apologetic for knowing your worth. You are more than the judgements around you.
Stop being afraid to fail because you are afraid to be judged. People need to hear your truth. Experience the pain of failure to let it make you stronger.
You are more than whatever excuse you are giving yourself. You need to stop being afraid to fail and let yourself do it. We all are imperfect and we struggle.
Your words have to be followed with work.
Whenever I talk about accountability, people run. You can't run from self responsibility. Stop pointing the finger at everyone else. What are you going to do to change your life? It's time to make a change.
It all starts with you.
