Live or Exist the Choice is Yours

Life is for the bold, for those unafraid to close their eyes and take a leap with the faith that they will land in success. Sure, you can go through life playing it safe, never taking the risk to reach for that dream that would make you truly happy. But that’s not living; that’s simply existing and make no mistake from the moment you were old enough to decide if you want to live or just exist, society has been conditioning you to believe that refusing to take a risk, never reaching for your dreams and playing it safe is the right thing to do. But ask yourself, when you’re old and thinking back on your life do you want to wonder what could have been if only you had taken that leap. 

Every Second of Every Day

Embrace every second of every day because the next second is not promised. 

Never let anyone or anything stop you from reaching for and achieving your dreams every second of every day. Let no one other than yourself say what you can or can’t do, what your limits are.  Only you can control your destiny. 

Embrace those you love every second of every day. You should never take those you love for granted and assume that they will always be there.  You should never be afraid to love someone because others say you shouldn’t. Your love is from your is yours, and it is from your heart; embrace it and act on it. 

Be thankful for what you have every second of every day while striving for more. Never let someone belittle you based on material goods or economic status. It is who you are, not what you have, that defines who you are as a person. 

To embrace every second of every day is to embrace happiness

Those of us…

The road to greatness is a journey traveled by those of us who believe we were born to stand apart from the masses.

Those of us who recognize that the potential of greatness is within all of us but is only unleashed by those of us who do not fear the unknown. 

Those of us who are unafraid to reach for what others say is impossible. 

Those of us who understand that limits are merely artificial constraints created by the few to hinder the potential of the many. 

Those of us who refuse to give up the colorful dreams of our childhood in favor of the colorless existence society tries to limit us to. Those of us who have an unwavering belief in ourselves and what we can accomplish.  

Join us and take that step off the road of the ordinary and know you will fly, no soar with the eagles above the clouds to the road to greatness. 

Be You

They may wonder who you are, where the person they’ve always known has gone. But sometimes, it takes just one person, one thing, one moment, to change your outlook on the world and the person you are.  That may not be the person others want you to be, but if you are truly going to find inner peace, it just might be who you need to be. 

They Only Dare to Whisper

Ssh, can you hear them?
Of course not they only dare to whisper if they dare even whisper at all
But I shout out loud for all to hear, and I do so unapologetically
I know our time on this planet is but a blink of the eye
So I listen to the rhythm of my heart
I embrace my dreams
No one can deter me
No one can stop me
I will reach for the stars
I will not silence the talent that resides within me
Others may only dare whisper if they dare even whisper at all
But I do not fear rocking the boat
I am not afraid to stand alone
I have the courage to be great
As Prince said, Baby, I’m a star

WHAT IF I TOLD YOU?

What if I told you don’t live to live but LIVE TO LIVE? Would you know the difference?

What if I told you it’s not what other people see when they look at you that defines you? It’s what you see when you look at yourself that determines how high you will soar?

What if I told you that the only person who can take your dreams away from you is yourself? Would you start believing in yourself or keep looking for reasons why you can’t.

What if I told you the people who say you can’t make it are the same ones who are afraid you will?

What if I told you that the greatest tragedy of the world today is that the ignorance of the many too often silences your greatness? Would you stay true to yourself or change so you can “fit in”?

What if I told you that the people who tell you that you cannot be great are usually the same ones who do not possess the courage to try and be great themselves.

What if I told you life is too short to settle for being ordinary? That to great you have to be bold and step off the cliff.  Are you ready for that, or are you so afraid that you’ll fall you accept being just one of many?

Cast Away All Doubt

I have been there; we all have clinging to hope and feeling like we are nurturing little more than a pipe-dream.  Doubt creeps in, and we wonder if we will ever accomplish what we set out to do if we will ever find the happiness we so desperately want. But that doubt is only a state of mind designed to soften the blow if we fail to act a defensive mechanism of sorts. But the truth is to accomplish our goals, manifest our happiness, we must cast away all doubt. For we will never find what we are looking for if deep down we doubt it is even there. We must step bodily to the precipice of our hopes, dreams, and desires and reach out and claim them with no doubts that they are there and no doubt that they are ours for the taking.
