People can be so funny. Although people are vital assets to claim victory in anything we want to attain in life, but the truth is you need the right people. Another point you need to grip is this – Before you rely on anyone 1%, rely on you 100%. Give yourself a hundred percent assurance that you’re doing the right thing before you put your assurance on any external factor. You’re the root of your progress and calamity. If the root is bad , everything is bad. If you’re are poor at believing in yourself, how can you expect an external factor or person to believe in you? But if your conviction is SOLID in every sense , any external factor against you is waste. For example, I’m not pounding everyday for anyone. If at all I’m pounding for anyone, I’m the number one person on the list. I am my own priority! You feel that? You should! The number one costly mistake we all make is we attach our goals, dreams , aspirations, desires,future to things that we can’t control . The only person that you have a 100% control over is YOU! If you can’t control YOU , then its game over.
For example, I don’t just write articles for people to proclaim that I’m a great writer. Look, I write to motivate ME . I don’t get out of bed excited because of anyone , I do that for me. I’m eager to see what I’m capable of creating with my day. Is life all about me? No. But the outcome of my life is in nobody’s hands but ME. You need to take absolute responsibility for your life. Don’t let people or circumstances dictate your happiness or progress. It’s difficult for me to lose motivation. Why? Because I’ve learned it the hard way that ONLY me can pick myself up when I’m down . I then do whatever is necessary to pick me up. Whether it’s talking to myself , reading a book or watching a video , I take it as my responsibility to pick myself up! I have 0% concern for the haters , I focus all of my energy on one question – I’m I moving me forward?
The truth is if I don’t figure out how to push myself to surge forward, there’s no way I can help anyone move forward. It’s just like money, if I have no money in my pocket or account , there’s no way I can give anyone money because I’m broke. Hey, you CAN’T give what you don’t have. For me to have enough to give to people , I need to always be the first on my priority list. I remember the days when I tied my goals to families, friends, girlfriends, money,or other external factors, I got hurt badly – Mentally & emotionally. I remember it would take months or weeks for me to recover from this cruel pain – I slowed myself down. Now, when people or any of the above external factors listed disappoints me, I pick myself up in a matter of 5 minutes or less. Sometimes, it takes me a few seconds to heal myself. I’m dedicated to seeing what I’m capable of doing. I’m having an amazing adventure and sincerely , I regret slowing me down because of some factors that was beyond my control.
I’m using this piece to tell you that in the beginning of any idea or concept that you have , believe in your efforts to make it work first before you add anyone on the list. Who are you trying to impress? For me ,I know I’m trying to impress one person – ME. While it’s a great idea to believe in our CREATOR to help us, I firmly believe our CREATOR i.e THE ALMIGHTY has given us everything we need to make things work in our favor. I believe HE has imbedded in us a light that can’t be destroyed unless we do. I believe it is our duty to let our lights shine bright across the universe. For your light to shine across the universe, you need to identify first that you carry a light and then make it shine for you first before anybody. Who are you shining your light for? For you or for some external factors? Change your mindset and don’t forget to do it for YOU. Who are you doing it for? Doing it for who??!!
