Fight The Good Fight !Keep your eye on the prize, outlast the competition and reach the next level enlightenment. When you do the right thing when the wrong thing is happening your time is coming. When you think that people or things are pushing you down they are pushing you up. You have to make adjustments, don't be discouraged in things, it's so easy to get to that point. Sometimes you need to stay and fight the good fight but doing that would cause damage and bring storms. On the other side of adversity is a new land. If you pass these test you come to the well of abundance, there are some battles that are not worth fighting. So just step back and let the higher power fight your battles. You have to ask yourself is winning the fight worth it ? We fight to many battles that don't matter. You have to learn to just ignore certain things, don't retaliate just keeping moving on to your destiny. Critics cant stop you, let them discredit you, maintain your dignity. Be an eagle rise high above the clouds. Take the high road, most people will take this as weakness, most people will want you to give in, " If they push this button they have you ". Don't play the game it just gets you riled up. Your time is too valuable to argue with people, only a fool values a fight. Walking away is a mark of Honor. Keep the peace, overlook things, even when you think right about things you can still be wrong. If your going to get to the well you have to go thru things you don't understand. We all have opposition and we all have people that oppose us. Don't let it stop you, keep moving on. Sometimes in life you cant see what's going on behind the scenes, one bad thing doesn't determine your future. Stay on the high road, don't judge your future on that one big break. Don't make a judgement based on one bad thing.. things will fall into place. Opposition is not set forth to stop you it's set to establish you. Keep moving forward
Self Connection“Even before you can make meaning, you must nominate yourself as the meaning-maker in your own life and fashion a central connection with yourself, one that is more aware, active, and purposeful than the connection most people fashion with themselves.
“Self-connection — understanding that you are your own advocate, taskmaster, coach, best friend, and sole arbiter of meaning and that no one else can or will serve those functions for you — is crucial.”
-- Eric Maisel
OptimismOptimism is the faith that leads to achievement.
Vision“Leaders are limited by their vision rather than by their abilities.” “Not all dreamers are winners, but all winners are dreamers. Your dream is the key to your future. The Bible says that, "without a vision (dream), a people perish."
PerseverancePeople with clear, written goals, accomplish far more in a shorter period of time than people without them could ever imagine”
Goals are necessary, passion is imperative. Only with passion for your own ideas and goals will you be able to find the necessary strength, endurance and grit to push through the inevitable, tough times ahead. I have always known my goals, not the detail but the ‘big picture’, the ones which define the life I want to be living. I have set myself goals so big that I can’t achieve them until I grow into the person who can. Never could I have predicted the journey but with razor sharp focus on what I ultimately want to achieve keeps me driving in the right direction. If the plan doesn’t work, change the plan but never the goal; enjoy the twists and turns and take calculated risks. Stay focused, cry often, laugh often and roll with the punches. Prioritizing, re-prioritizing and prioritizing again… always staying passionate about the end goal.
What your mind can conceive, IT WILL ACHIEVE.
Think you know me ?Don't talk about me until you have talked to me. Don't underestimate me until you challenge me. Don't judge me until you know me.
Holden Caulfield" I think that one of these days... you're going to have to find out where you want to go.
And then you've got to start going there "
