They looked at me and said i don’t know who you are anymore I smiled and replied I may not be who you want me to be but trust me I am exactly who I should be.
We can not walk backwards in time; life is inherently a series of small steps forward and with each step forward, we create memories, some good, some bad, many nondescript. But what so many of us miss is that it’s not the memories but what we do with them that define us. Why? Because no matter what the memory is, it becomes a permanent part of who we are and influences our next step. So embrace your memories because the future is not written, but it is a road of endless possibilities; it’s up to you to seize them.
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.
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.
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 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?
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.
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.
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.
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.
I’ve got to get up, I thought to myself, but the voices around me were screaming, stay down, stay down.
I got to my knees.
Stay down, stay down, they continued to shout.
I reached for the ropes.
I started to pull myself up.
You’re gonna get hurt. Don’t be a fool. Stay down, stay down.
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.
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.
