You have to see it when nobody else sees it
You have to feel it when it’s not tangible
You have to believe it when you cannot see it
You gotta be possessed with the dream
- Eric Thomas
Everyone wants to be successful but nobody wants to work hard, I’ve seen cliché quotes like this thrown around my whole life. Never did I once think it would apply to myself. For quite some time this year I have gone through the motions and coasted, on reflection I have not been in full control of my life.
I’ve read countless self-help articles and guides but at the end of the day none of it matters if I don’t do what is required. Self-analysis is so key, I know what I need to do to fulfill my dreams but honestly lack the drive. I’ve allowed my ambitious nature to overwhelm my mind when in truth I need to focus on one thing at a time, I can’t do it all.
The signs are there, within the past month God has tried to put me back on the right path and although I acknowledge this I still don’t put in the work. But that ends now, this post is the beginning of change. I acknowledge my shortcomings and will be better. I don’t want anything drastic to happen before I realize that it’s time to live up to my potential, I will give myself the push that I need.
I want to make blogposts to inspire and empower, for months I’ve been putting off writing. I have multiple passions and for months I’ve watched people outwork me. The reality is fear has held me back from reaching my potential.
From this moment forward I will be relentless in all that I do.
Today I take control of my life. I will be a success.
