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. 

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?

Go Ahead; I Dare You

Go ahead; I dare you.

Tell me I can’t do it.

It won’t matter because I believe if I put my mind to it, I can do anything.

Tell me I’m not good enough.

It won’t matter; because I know who I am and believe me I am more than good enough.

Tell me I’m not worthy.

It won’t matter because you’ll never can’t shake my belief in myself, and I know I’m worthy

Go ahead; I dare you.

Stay Down Stay Down

I didn’t see it coming. It happened so fast, and the blow was devastating; I was out before I even hit the ground. Woozy, but I could hear the count loud and clear.

One

Two

Three

Four

I’ve got to get up, I thought to myself, but the voices around me were screaming, stay down, stay down. 

Five

Six

I got to my knees.

Stay down, stay down, they continued to shout.

Seven

I reached for the ropes.

Eight

I started to pull myself up.

You’re gonna get hurt. Don’t be a fool. Stay down, stay down.

Nine

I struggled to my feet.

You can’t win. Stay down, Stay down, they continued to shout. 

The ref looked me in the eye and said, are you sure you want to continue? Battered but not out, I looked him back in the eye and said I ain’t done yet.

Fight

Now the fight is over, the final bell has rung, and the judge’s cards are in; the announcer takes the microphone and informs everyone of the decision.  

The winner by unanimous decision and new champion! 

Me! Yes Me! He said Me!

I trained for this moment.

I overcame the brutal knockdown.

I refused to listen to those who said I couldn’t win.

I refused to stay down.

I kept fighting because I believed, even if no one else did, that I could, and I would succeed, I would control my own destiny. I would be great, and now here I am, the winner and new champion. How about that. 

Live Among The Stars

Keep moving forward. Do not shy away from obstacles in your path; instead, meet them head-on and overcome them. Tell those that doubt you to look into your eyes and try and find fear or self-doubt because it does not exist within you. Push yourself until you reach your limits, and when you do, run right past them, exceed them and not only reach for the stars but live among them. 

So What

They say they don’t believe in you, so what

They say you can’t do it, so what

They say you aren’t smart enough, so what

They say you aren’t strong enough, so what

They say you aren’t imaginative enough, so what

They say you tried and failed before, so what

They say no one has ever done it before, so what

They say only a fool would try and do it, so what

You say so what because

You know who you are

You know what you’re capable of 

You know you’re strong enough

You know you’re smart enough

You know no one has ever done it, but you don’t care because you aren’t like everyone else

You know you are special, you were born to be great, and no one is going to stop you from reaching your full potential

So let them go ahead and doubt you, so what

Don’t overthink it

Don’t overthink it

Don’t look for reasons it can’t be done?

Don’t worry about failing?

Don’t ask yourself, is this the right thing to do?

Follow your heart

Believe in yourself

If you fall, dust yourself off and go back to work

It’s your life, your destiny; grab hold of it and let your passion be your roadmap to success. 

Tell Me Why?

Tell me why? 

Why do you doubt yourself? 

Why do you believe you can not soar with eagles? 

Is it because you’re afraid to try something new?

Is it because others say you can’t do it? 

Is it because you are afraid of failing? 

Is it because you tried before and failed? 

Do you even know, or do you just accept that you can’t do it? 

Greatness is never just handed to someone. The truly great learn from their failures and forge ahead. They do allow themselves to be discouraged; they pay no attention to those who are quick to point to their failure as a reason to give up hope. They are not afraid to get back up and look for a new way to succeed because they believe that they have it within themselves to achieve anything that they put their minds to. With each lesson learned, they add another rung to the ladder, a ladder that eventually will take them to their desire destination. A ladder that will lead them to a place where eagles soar. 

So I ask again tell me why you can’t soar as well?
