Hope you are well this Wednesday evening.
Feeling demotivated? Feeling like you want to quit? Feeling down?
Right, let’s get back up!
Imagine a life where everything fell into your plate, how boring? Look, we all feel eroded, maybe I should start using makeup? 😉
Do you want to go quietly and peacefully in your grave? It’s okay if you do, I mean my seventy-eight-year-old dad has a lot of reason to. Still, if you’re anything like me and have a hell over bucket list to complete then you have the drive and the greater the drive, the greater the mark you’ll leave in this world; your fingerprint or legacy or call it your skid marks.
Life is bl***y hard, not only for you but for all of us. You know I watched a video today by Abraham Hicks and wow! What a reality check… I don’t think that video is for you today. Let’s leave it for another day, shall we? So long I’ll live with the harsh reality, oof, when she said it, I believe the room full of people went very silent, and they were like oh boy… What a reality check that I bet you a lot of people, including me, felt like smacking ourselves to find out if this is real, and the feeling of what we felt after that was heavy. So, I will leave you with this line which is not so damaging to you. “You are responsible for your s*** and you are responsible for your own vibration.”
Of course, I moved onto something motivational after that… but I believe I need to listen to the Abraham Hicks video that I am referring to on this article a few more times.
Look, I have massive failure stories, I’m sure The Rock has massive failure stories, I’m sure Priyanka Chopra has massive failure stories, and the list goes on, but we all must go on, we must. There is always someone who wishes they were in your shoes and there is always someone less fortunate than you, always, always.
Let’s start to get our bold, fearless drive back because there is nothing wrong with being ambitious, as long as you are not hurting anyone else. The older we get; it seems like we should hand it all over to the young ones and just sit back and get old. Now way friends, no way. In fact, the older you are the finer you are, like a fine wine. Age like a fine wine, there is so much you can go for, so much you can give and so much waiting for you. Why play small? Some people can’t catch themselves at their limiting beliefs so you can’t blame them, you just got to believe in yourself.
So, risk, take calculated risks knowing that you are aiming high but always have a plan B. When you don’t have a plan B then jump straight onto plan C and ride the wave. The way the universe often works is it makes you lose something so that you get something better. If you’re clinging onto it, you’re not letting the greater good enter. Now, I’m not saying let everything go either. Calculate the risk, again, I mean if you’ve planted seeds, have a lovely garden, hardly any weeds (yes marijuana is also a weed) and have been maintaining it for a very long time, you should try and fight as hard as possible to hold onto it. You can’t keep growing things if you don’t keep yourself current; invest in growing yourself.
Life is funny right; sometimes there are rules, sometimes you have to go off the rule book, sometimes you have to make up the rules, sometimes there are no rules. That is why you have intuition. When I think about the most successful people and their failures, they all have one thing in common, and that is a strong support network and strong intuition. This group of people are carefully picked out (like grapes…) just thought it sounded nice…
Where was I again, this group of people are carefully picked out, and you’ll find that for these people less is more. Call them what you want, your panel of genuine truth without any decorations. A pillar needs support to stand strong; no one can do it alone. Look, in this last year alone I fell, felt some self-pity, got up really quickly, sometimes there wasn’t time for self-pity, dust myself off and get back on the ladder. How many times I fell but how many times I got up stronger after each fall. As children, we fall, cry/laugh and just get back up. As adults, we fall literally but mostly figuratively but we must get up, we must. Since September 2017, right up to this year; when I left England, the maintenance guy where I lived always told me to remember six words throughout my life and always tested me to see if I remembered them. He said whatever comes your way, know a) I must b) I will and c) I can. Always tell yourself this.
You better off starting right now with who you are called to be. It’s better late than never.
