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.
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.
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
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
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.
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?
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
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?
Somebody told me I have Denzel Washington’s looks, the intelligence of Albert Einstein, and the financial savvy of Warren Buffet. Ok that somebody was me but I am somebody.
