You Didn’t Wake Up To Be Mediocre

quote-2.jpg

What it do,

After today stop waking up starting your day expecting less. Expect more. Don’t expect more from others but expect more from yourself. The average person is dissatisfied with his/her life. Here is why,

1) Change your mindset

(Focus on what you want to see, instead of focusing on what you are use to seeing)

Your mind is under constant attack from the time you wake, till the time you sleep. Half of those mental attacks that you’re having are not external, it’s internal. Yes, internal. Your environment plays a significant role in moding the person that you are today. So how do you combat this? It is time for you to be the first. Stop allowing your environment to dictate your life’s outcome. Most of you come from backgrounds that is filled with doubt, unbelief, uncertainty, regret, lack of hope, etc….. These things that you have both heard and seen has filtrated your mind and life up until this point. However, you have more life to live. It is not over and you don’t have to accept less, but you’re deserving of more. It is time for you to cancel these reruns. Stop replaying the same old episodes in your mind. It is not doing you any good. Listen to this, the reason why bad, the unexpected and the usual stuff keeps manifesting in your life. Is due to you constantly thinking on it, calling it forth and expecting it. You have to give this negative mindset the “Freddy Krueger” treatment. If you don’t fear it or pay it any attention then your negative mindset won’t have any power over you.  Now if you take that same mindset that you have for negative or what I like to call average and apply it to some positivity then you will begin to see a abundance of positivity manifest. If you want change to take place you must first tell yourself what good and positivity you expect to see and want to happen. I will end it with this “IF YOU CAN’T SEE IT BEFORE YOU SEE IT, THEN YOU WILL NEVER SEE IT.”

2) What’s your blueprint/ strategy

You just made a life change and this is fairly new to you. However, you need a blueprint/strategy so you can be effective in succeeding in this new life that you have. This is how you do it. Surround yourself around people who are where you want to be.

Can two walk together, except they be agreed?

Amos 3:3

Surround yourself around some like minded individuals where you can learn and absorb as much knowledge, information and understanding as you can. Being around these like minded individuals gives you the opportunity to be around people where you all will be operating off of the same wave frequency. Also, being around these people bring a level of accountability; being held to a higher standard. There is a level of accountability that will be placed on you to challenge yourself to grow and evolve everyday. Not going back to the same way that you were but pressing forward. This is good because the time that you used to spend being unproductive. Will be filled with task/objectives for you to accomplish everyday.

3) Invest in yourself

(Stop looking at others/what they got and have)

Stop spending so much money on making others rich and wealth. Take that money that you earned and go fund your own success. Don’t tell yourself that you can do it because you can. There is no excuse. You are spending way too much time being a spectator, being a fan watching others win and you could be out there winning as well. We are all bank accounts, stocks and bonds. You have to add value to it before it becomes profitable, “YOU GET OUT WHAT YOU PUT IN.” Investing in yourself does not cost hundreds or even thousands of dollars. All it cost is a made up mind. Are you ready to make your mind up??

4) Fear No More

Cut that computer, television off and put that cell phone down. Stop living vicariously through others people. Quit watching them win on every level and you sitting back marvelling at this. Tssss, you have the same drive, effort, focus and tenacity within you. You just have to access it. “You will never know unless you try, so why not start with yourself”- fisherofmen. Stop sitting back wishing upon a star. Go out and go get what you want. Whatever you want it is yours. Move past the fear because it is hindering you from your next level. There are steps that you have to take in life and you keep falling constantly remembering that pain allowing yourself to stay in the crawling stage because those hardwood floors hurt. Metaphorically speaking.

5) Walk with Assurity

Yo, you are walking down this new path. You don’t know what obstacles, road blocks, situations or conflicts lies ahead of you. But make no doubt about it you must keep the faith. Know that what you are seeking for, asking for and working toward will and shall happen. You will be receiving criticism, hatred, etc from North, south,east and west. But still walk in assurity. Look the enemy is just messing with you. His plan and purpose is to decide you. The enemy will even go as far as talking to you in your in your head with your own voice saying, “you don’t deserve this. You know it’s too good to be true. You don’t have what it takes, because if you did it wouldn’t take this long me to see any good happen.” The enemy is sowing seeds of doubt and unbelief. It’s a trick. He peeped your future a long time ago and seen how mighty you really are and will be. So it is his mission to stop you. He wants you to deviate from the plan and purpose of your life. He knows that you are trying, your are fairly new at this so you don’t know everything that is and is not supposed to happen. Still walk in assurity. Don’t allow all your hard work to go to waste. There is nothing more sweet than seeing what you have been working toward come to fruition.

5) Yahuah (God)

Lastly,

 I can do all things through Christ which strengtheneth me.

Philippians 4:13

With men this is impossible; but with God all things are possible.

Matthew 19:26

Remember Your life is designed for a great purpose not mediocrity

Stirring the eagle’s nest

best-motivational-quotes-fear.jpg

A wise man once told me that “I was not afraid off failure, I was afraid to succeed.” Hearing my dad utter those words, definitely place something on my mind. At the time I did not understand what he meant by that, nor did I ask. Now at the age of twenty-six I understand clearly. Looking back I see that what he said had alot of truth to it. Knowing how my dad talks, I was not shocked by what he said, but how he said it. Normally you would hear someone say, “don’t be afraid of failure.” However, my dad is not normal, hahaa. When my dad was teaching me the fundamentals of life, I would always try to be prefect. I would always try to get everything right. I hated the idea and feelings of failure or just making a mistake. I can’t lie I also would try to be perfect because when your in the process of learning. You have someone teaching you and you don’t want to disappoint them. You don’t want to see frustration show on their face. You don’t want to see disappointment in their eyes. You know what I’m saying?

I believe it’s safe to say that when in a learning stage of life you may not comprehend nor trying to apply to your life the teachings that a person is teaching you. You spend more time  pretending so you can get on that person good side. What’s really going thru the brain is why does this person hate me? Not really understanding that they are pushing you.

You know what’s funny about all of this is that often times in life we want people to help us, but we want to dictate how people help us. I look back on my life and realize that I spent more time fighting not to change then I did to change. I look around the world today and see the exact same thing taking place with other people. For example, when you are helping a three year old tie his/her shoes and they tell you ” no I can do it.” You look at them and say, “let me help you.” They say one more time “no I can do it” and snatch the shoes away from you. So you stand back and watch them put their shoes on and tie them. You notice that they have the shoes on the wrong foot and they look you in the face and say “see I did it.” Now you weren’t amazed that they can put their shoes on and tie them. You are more amazed that they are determined to reject help. I swear we act just like this as people. We reject someone help because we percieved that they are trying to help us with what we know. Naw, they are trying to help us with what we don’t know. The irony of the three year old shoe situation is to show that a person’s help can assist you in avoiding unnecessary mistakes.

Why afraid to succeed? Parent eagles stirs the eagle’s nest so the baby eagle can’t get comfortable on one particular side of the nest. This is done to encourage the eagle to not become dependent on the parent eagles. Oneday they will have to learn how to fly and survive on their own. So many of us want change, but we settle for comfortability. As people we love what makes us comfortable. We love things that make us feel warm and fuzzy. We love things that don’t oppose a challenge to us, but enable us to remain the same. We are not afraid of failure because we accept defeat all the time wether we acknowledge it or don’t acknowledge it. When you constantly fight against knowledge and understanding. You are a willing participant for failure. When you perfer to stay the same way you have always been and expect different results. You’re insane, but a willing participant for failure. When you fall and tell yourself “why should I get back up again. I’m just going to fall again. So I might as well get used to it.” You my friend are a willing participant for failure. Saying words like can’t, quit, and won’t are a person way for filling out an application for failure. So we can’t be afraid of failure when we spend more time fighting against the maturation process. It’s crazy because it’s inside of us to do more and become better. But we live a life that warrants us to do less and become less. But we contradict ourselves because we want more, not less. Well “for unto whomsoever much is given, of him shall be much required.” It’s seems like we are running from the responsibilities of who we are as people instead of accepting what’s ours. It’s crazy because don’t you want to see everything that you are and will be? Is your life anything worth fighting for?

Stirring the eagle’s nest so the young can fly like the rest of the eagles. You see the eagles flies high and looks low. If the eagle was allowed to stay comfortable in it’s situation it would not survive. It would be another species prey. So the eagle is more than capable enough to understand that if I don’t push my young to fly how will they ever take on the true nature of what they were created to be.

Answer these questions

What is your true nature in which you are created to be?

Are you fighting against your maturation process?

Are you comfortable in a particular area of your life that warrants change?
