“Look inside yourself, you are more than what you have become. ~MUFASA’S Lion King
I was watching a show on TV a few weeks ago. A lady had pain in the stomach for months but didn’t think much of it and kept going through her daily routine. One day the pain became so great that it couldn’t be ignored anymore. She went to the ER and they began to run a test on her, that’s when the doctors founded out, she was nine months pregnant. She went all that time not knowing what was inside her, I’m sure there were some signs that the pain was something serious.
Her story made me think about an out the time I was going through life not knowing there was abilities, talents, and passion within me. I to just ignored all the signs that the universe and life was sending me. I kept trying to fit in and be normal, I thought going to school getting a degree and a job would push those things I had inside me down. I tried to suppress them and made every excuse in the world why I couldn’t do what I really loved doing. Let alone make money doing it, I thought my time had passed me by and I was too old, to damage, to poor. I look at people around me going through life, living with no purpose, no desire to become more. My dream of creating wealth, and doing the things I loved was inside me.
“We’re never in the lack of money, we lack people with dreams, who are willing to die for those dreams” Jack Ma
I thought I needed someone permission to start, and approval of so-called friends to go after my dreams. I was sadly mistaken, I never got anyone permission. In fact, I got to argue for my limitations, not my possibilities. I was told that unless I was born rich, or I won the lottery I would have to just accept life as it was. Yet still there was something inside of me telling me I can become more in life than that, I believed that I can live life on my terms and not be a puppet. Les Brown said, ‘you can live your dreams or live your fears”. Like a lot of people in the World, I was living my fears, stuck in I Can’t, and it’s impossible. Until one day I had an intervention. I founded out that I become what I think about the most. If I think I’m a loser, and that I can’t create the life I want, well I certainly never will. One day I made my mind up that I wasn’t going to live in my limitations, fears, and doubts anymore. I’ve seen others become wealthy, successful and live a life of productivity. Then so could I, that’s when things started to change, because I had what I need to succeed in life inside of me. My talents and gifts that I was born with started to make room for me. There is more in life for you to accomplish, you have abilities, ideas, and talents that were given to you. Don’t take all your treasure with you to the grave, the world would be a better place if you lived your life with purpose.
