Make no mistake; there is no fate but the one you make for yourself because the funny thing about “fate” is the direction it takes you in is often directly correlated to your belief in yourself.
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 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 your potential for success.
Today June 7th is Prince’s birthday and I believe we should heed his words and think of ourselves and live our lives like this.
I know I do!
Baby I’m a star
Might not know it now
Baby but I’m a star
I don’t want to stop, ’til I reach the top
Better look now or it just might be too late
Let’s go crazy
Let’s get nuts
It’s almost sunrise, are you ready? Because:
When they said it could not be done, we said, why not.
When they said we’ve come as far as we can go, we took another step.
We have never been confined by boundaries.
We have always believed there are possibilities.
We have an unwavering belief in ourselves and what we can accomplish.
We fly upon the wings of our dreams and achieve what few would even dare dream. Are you ready to join us?
Are you ready to let go of what you have been taught to believe and start believing in yourself?
Are you ready to believe that you are only confined by the boundaries you make up in your mind?
Are you ready?
Tell me again,
You didn’t believe in me?
Didn’t think I had it in me?
Never believed I would succeed?
I mean, couldn’t you see that I am unique?
That my spirit is indomitable.
That I have an unwavering belief in myself.
That greatness was always a part of me?
Were you jealous because the moment you saw me, you knew I didn’t walk, I didn’t run, and I would never get caught in the rain because I soared above the clouds?
Didn’t you see you could never take my happiness from me?
That your opinion of me never mattered.
Every step I take confirms who I am.
I waste not one day.
I am not a passenger of destiny.
I take hold of my future, motivated to be better tomorrow than I am today.
I have never regretted taking a chance.
Because my failures do not define
me, instead, I am respected for my resolve because failure did not break me.
I embrace the journey and keep moving forward.
My dreams do not end when I wake; they begin.
So tell me again, you didn’t believe in me?
