Dream big, Focus bigger

Your focus has to be greater than that in which you dreamed about. Your determination has be in the realm of seeing your dream come to fruition. You can’t just dream and stop there and believe that it will work itself out. That’s where you come in. You draw out the blueprints and perform the actions. If you want it. Go and get it. Because it’s yours.

Peace

With God There’s Are No Limits


14 Comments

In life we have all heard the saying “the sky is the limit.” Well if that’s the measuring stick for success, peace, love, happiness and prosperity. I don’t want it then. We should have the courage to push pass the limits that was placed on us and go after what society views as inevitable, but really is incredible. That’s God.

Remember, “whatever the mind believes, the body will achieve”

The Mirroring Beliefs Of Our Reality

You know my WordPress family I can remember as a young boy sitting at the dining table listening to both my father and mother talk. They would say that “people are their own worse enemy.”

I never really understood what they meant by this. I would hear them say profound deep revelatory things that would silence a room. I seldomly would ask for them to clarify. It wasn’t until I moved out and was in college that I realized that what they said was true. Many times we blame others for our downfalls, short comings and missed opportunities. Many times we play the victim. We tell ourselves that if things around us would fall into it’s proper place we would have a easier way of living. We sit back and point the finger believing that this is the works of others. Only to realize that this was not by the hands of others. It was never others that was standing in our path.

It hurts doesn’t it?

Life has a funny way of showing you what you see verses what you really are.

Don’t stand in your way. You deserve more. You are better than that. You see yourself as royalty but you’re living the life of a peasant. Remember dream, believe and achieve. You can’t just see yourself as royalty, you have to mentally be royalty first.

Something to think about??

Wonderful is the life that we live

You know alot of times we just wake up, put some coffee on, shower, brush our teeth and hair, grab a quick bite to eat whether at home or a restaurant, check the phone or computer for texts and emails, grab the keys and out the door. That’s the beginning to our morning, in a hurry, stressed and burden with alot of assignments and task that need to be completed before the day ends. Either that or we wake up and do the same daily routine but along the way we moan, groan and complain. Sigh! “Another day another dollar, back to work all over again. I can’t wait for Friday.”

I can definitely rasie my hand and testify to this. I have been guilty of this numerous times. I start the day off in a panic and it ends in a panic. Start the day of rushing and worrying. End the day rushing and worrying. Start the day of bad and it ends bad. See when you do this everyday it makes you want to hit the pause button on life. It becomes too much for the mind, heart, body and soul. I don’t even think a vacation would solve what is precieved and felt.

However, I noticed that when I wake up the first thing that I do is set my mind on Yahuah (God) first thanking him for another day that I am alive. Showing thanks and gratitude for having the opportunity to live again. To be able to open my eyes and do right. Correct my wrongs. Appreciate that I have a wife, a family. Thankful for the car and the apartment. Allow me to be a blessing to somebody in need of a kind gesture or word. Then I check my phone, my computer, ESPN, shower, etc. I noticed that the day goes by much smoother. Don’t get me wrong we live in a world that is full of people so somebody will still try to try you and disturb your peace. But I set that foundation earlier and whatever they may say or do want have any profound effect. It won’t matter.

What I am saying is that when you wake up set that time (it don’t have to be and too long a couple of minutes will do just fine) aside for you and Yahuah (God) to give him thanks. Because he is the reason that you are waking up everyday. It’s not because of the alarm clock. Ask him what direction shall you go in. How can you be a blessing unto others. You know in my twenty-six years I am realizing that we are always on the go. Just a fast pace society. We don’t have time for others nor do we have time for ourselves. We are always busy. And because of this we become burdened down, wore out and mentally drained.

This prohibits us from being effective in our life and someone else life. So we go on vacations or take time off from life to rejuvenate. But we return feel 50% better. Feeling 50% able to deal with life’s problems, task and situations.

So what is that rejuvenation that we need??

Well the word says,

Come unto me, all ye that labour and are heavy laden, and I will give you rest.

Matthew 11:28

 

So what I am trying to say is that 1) wake up with God on your mind and hearts. 2) Make today’s and others days problems secondary. 3) Seek Yahuah (God) wisdom, love, grace, mercy and care. Ask how can you be of service today in someone else life? Put others before you. 4) Appreciate, be thankful that you are alive and well. 5) Walk in that joy and peace knowing that you gave all your troubles, burdens and worries to the right one. Remember no matter what task or situation that you are faced with. HE GOT YOUR BACK.

What Are You Holding On To That Is Holding You Back From Your Purpose?


2 Comments

Read this and ask yourself, truly ask yourself. Why are you telling yourself that you should be further in life than you are currently? Then follow the question with, what are you holding on to that is holding you back from your purpose? Sit back and allow yourself to be humbled you will be surprised of the answer that you find out about yourself.

Yesterday I was having a conversation with myself. Yes I do that from time to time. I’ve been noticing that more and more people are walking around feeling unfulfilled. Regretting that they didn’t capitalize on their opportunities. I hear

“If I knew then what I know now I would be in a better place.”

“I should be further in my life then where I’m currently at.”

I politely ask why do you say that? Their response is I was being foolish when I was in my youth. I chose the streets instead of wisdom and knowledge. I rejecting the advice that my elders gave me. I traded in my obedience for sacrifice of the life that I should be having for the life that I wanted to have. I seen value in a temporary lifestyle instead of a everlasting lifestyle. I wanted things quick fast and in a hurry instead of taking my time.

I sit back in amazment because the people that I am talking to aren’t eighty or ninety years of age. They are in their mid to late twenties, thirties, fourties, fifties and late sixties. And it’s amazing how they have accepted defeat. It’s truly sad and at the same time humbling because they are not realizing that as long as they have life in their body. As long as the most high keeps waking them up. They can always live again They can always try again. They have a chance. They don’t have to quit, throw in the towel and accept defeat. They have a chance to live right, do right and be right. They don’t have to accept their circumstances and predicaments.

It’s humbling because my dad always told me that you don’t have to touch the fire to know that it is hot and will burn you. Just observe people lives and you will know what to do and what not to do.

However, what’s truly amazing about all of this is all the garbage that they are still holding onto that prevents them from succeeding in life. I question What’s holding them back from what they deserve to have. What’s holding them back from taking that next step toward a better tomorrow? Why can’t they access what’s theirs? Why can’t they let go and allow Yahuah (God) to truly have his way? What aren’t they letting go that is effecting their present and future. What are they benefitting by being hardhead? Why make life more difficult for yourself than it already is? Why aren’t you realizing that today is a new day. All those things that have happened on yesterday is old. You have another chance to live again? Why are you finding comfort in continuing to stay blind and deaf to your opportunities that you have now? Why do you like being alive physically but dead mentally, spiritually and emotionally? You are a warrior. Now why did you trade in your armor for some magic beans? Who told you that this is where your life ends?

Now you answer,

What are somethings in your life that you are holding on to; not allowing yourself to be humble enough to receive direction, that is preventing you from elevating to a level in your life that you believe that you should already be at?

Start To Be Great


22 Comments

20190307_102802_0000.png

There’s this misconception that a person have to be great to start do any particular thing in life that they want to accomplish. That’s false. This reminds me of when I was a little boy going to church with my mother. Everytime there was an alter call for someone, anyone to go up and give their life over to Christ. I’m a observer and I enjoyed looking around the church observing what others were doing and why they were doing it. I remember seeing some members of the church walk over to visitors and encourage them to walk up to the alter and accept Jesus Christ as their Lord and Savior. Some of the visitors would go because they were at a place in their life where they were tierd, beaten, battered and broken looking for a that grace and mercy, a second chance.

Now the others, it was ummmmmm interesting to witness. Not because they put up a fight or cause a scene or anything like that. It was interesting because of what they said. I remember hearing a women say naw I’m not ready to give my life over. I have to be right and holy like y’all before I can give my life over. I thought the way a human mind operates in a time of need was fascinating. You’re in a place of healing just like a hospital and a person believes that they already have to be healed in order to receive healing. The purpose for coming is to “come as you are but don’t leave the same way you came in” think about it.

I am literally sitting here thinking how ironic. The same way people view giving their life to Christ can be applied with pursuing goals, dreams, having ambitions and aspirations. Countless times I have heard people and myself was once a victim of making excuses for the reasons why we have not gone forward in life and went after what we truely desire.

Excuses:

I want to research and become knowledgeable on various topics but I don’t have a laptop.

You got a smart phone that’s a mini laptop within itself.

I want to exercise and lose weight, bulk and tone but I don’t have a gym membership.

You have outside, it’s free.

I want to cook a variety of simple and healthy meals. I can’t do it just yet because I need the special pots and pans that the chefs use.

Yet Walmart exist. Pots and pans don’t make good food. The cook makes good food.

I’m going to learn how to drive and get my license. First I need to purchase a car so I can have some thing to practice with.

There’s driving schools anf you may know people with cars who can take the time to teach you. All you have to do is ask.

You know the excuses that you and I have shows doubt and unbelief in our ability to go out and go after what we desire. We create a thousand excuses for accomplishing one task. And you know we have to stop that because we’re lacking hope. We are lacking in areas of our life that is meant for us. We are lacking the confidence and courage to go out and move heaven and hell just to go for what we deserve. The thing about it is we are lacking in the area of our life that’s who we are. That is simply great. Are we good enough. Hell yeah we are? Do we have what it takes? Hell yeah we do. Are we the right person for the job? You damn right we are. If your greatness is determined by the equipment that you need to start then you’re failing. If you’re not great without the equipment then you’re not great with the equipment.

Now don’t get me wrong there is nothing wrong with having the equipment all this does is set you up for success. A person could have all the materials and still not know what to do with it. However the greatness that you are seeking and in search of does not come from having the equipment to start with. That greatness comes from you putting in that ground work, developing a sturdy foundation that you can build off of. You and I both have to understand that we were born with greatness in us. The only way for it to truely manifest is for us to start with what we have.

See on this quest to become great you and I have made this mistake of looking at other establish people; desiring to be at the level that they are at.  When we act this way there is a level of underminding and being unappreciative toward what we have that no one else can possess.

The lack of appreciation comes from us being ignorant (simply means not to know) of what we have because we are constantly looking at others to see what they have that we don’t have. What are they doing that we are not doing? Where are they in their life that we are not in our life currently? Why are they able to have access to their greatness and we are still struggling? Who are they and who are we not? How are they able and how come we are not able? Constantly we’re using another person’s success as the measuring stick for our life. 

Stop it you are going to fail Everytime. This is not a equipment thing nor another person’s possession thing. This is a mental thing. “What the mind believes the body achieves.”

photo-2.jpg

If you believe that you need materials, equipments, substance, etc then the body will achieve it. But you can never get the credit that you deserve because you needed a place holder so you could escape reality to asend to such great levels. So really was that you who performed it?? Do you know what you are capable of without a false sense of courage.

Look we are all born with greatness within us. It’s just a matter of taking a little and developing it into alot.

MARATHON Your Way To Success


2 Comments

Runners take your position.

On your mark

Get set

And……. The gun goes off

You’ll be surprised how many people quit before the gun go off. The race has started and there are people still at the start line in a runner’s stance. Here’s some irony, that ribbon at the finish line. You know the one that gets split in half when the race has been completed. It’s spilt in two but no one ran or finished the race.

If no one started running then why is the race already finished? Check this out…..

1) Seen the end from the beginning

Don’t be so concerned with finishing the race. While finishing what you started is important. Your attention and focus should be on the journey, where and how you begin. The consequence for looking that far causes fear. You scare yourself because you get a glimpse of what you will have to endure. The trials and tribulations that you will face every mile in this race will frighten you.

Do not do this because you are not ready to handle those challenges just yet. You are building and are not fully matured mentally, physically, emotionally and spiritually for what this marathon will throw at you as you progress in miles. Do not get ahead of yourself. There’s nothing wrong with taking your time. This is all new and you do not know what to expect. So try this instead, take it one mile at a time. Take every quarter mile serious. Allow yourself to develop endurance and stamina. Allow yourself to establish the correct footing on how you should run this race. Use every quarter mile as a way to prepare you for the next mile.

20190227_093620_0000

2) Showed up to the marathon unprepared

Did you train? Now I know that there are no exercises in the world that can prepare you for life. No excuses. You still have to show up ready. This is how you do it, “make up your mind.” First come to the race with a made up mind that you will start your race. Second what are you racing for? Do you have something that is of value and importance to you? What in your life are you seeking victory in? Next remember what you told yourself. Use that as motivation throughout the race to keep going. Don’t wait until you run through the ribbon with your hands raised high to make up your mind. Do it before the race begins.

3) Stop looking at others

This reminds me of a sporting event and you have two teams preparing to play each other. However, you have one team on the end of the field or court going through their drills with their coach’s. They look prepared mentally, physically, emotionally and spiritually. The whole team is coordinated from gear to skills. Now the other team is supposed to be doing the same and going through their drills preparing for their match up. But they are caught watching the other team. They took their focus off of what they showed up to the game to do and became invested in what the other team is going to do. Here’s the thing it is known in sports and in life for people to make a scene and advertise what they are capable of. But they are doing that while no one is competing against them. They are doing that where there is no pressure place upon them to stay the course. You can not get caught staring because this is a intimidating tactic used to place fear into the opponent head. Getting you to doubt in your skills, talents and abilities. Getting you to question why you are even there. You don’t belong. This is used as a psychological deploy Beating you before the game, life even begins. Stop letting fear have your game in it’s back pocket.

20190227_101853_0000

It can be very intimidating to be around others who seem like they got it together. They look like they been there and done that. They dressed the part and look the part. They came with headbands, special sneakers, water bottles, customized shirts, etc. Remember this is a singles race. Yes, you like everyone else is at the marathon getting ready to run the race of a life time. However, they have their own reasons for being in the race just like you do. At the end of the day it does not matter how prepared someone looks on the outside. What matters is how prepared someone is on the inside. That’s what wins the race.

4) Entered the marathon with a unrealistic mindset

You may have entered the marathon thinking that this was going to be easy. Thinking that you are going to zip through the race and some how finish first. There is nothing wrong with you being confident. However, let’s be realistic if this is your first time going after what you want. What you deserve. You don’t know what road blocks lies ahead. So many times when you go into a situation with a unrealistic mindset it can cause a setback. You may say to yourself dang, i thought it was going to be easier than this. Or I didn’t imagine it to be this way. This can cause you to give up and throw in the towel. Just because your expectations didn’t match the reality of the situation. So you may want to caution yourself and observe the track at every turn, dip and bumps in the road.You don’t want to go in a all out sprint and twist an ankle and can’t carry on. Look this is a marathon not a sprint. You must pace yourself. You’re in this race for a lifetime not a few minutes. You must focus on running this race and being both efficient and proficient as you possibly can to equal your overall effectiveness in this marathon.

5) Pace yourself

Don’t worry you will be victorious one-day. You will run through that ribbon with the hands held high knowing that you succeed. You know alot of times we GPS a destination to see how many miles and how much time is projected for us to travel. Once we see that it will take us longer to walk then drive. We set course to our destination. However we never consider that just because traveling by car may be faster than walking. The GPS does not change the road conditions, hazards that you will stumble across while traveling to the destination. It’s a marathon not a sprint. Think about it.

6) What’s your expectations for yourself

Stop walking around telling people what to expect from you. When you don’t expect it from yourself. When you do this you’re giving people a preview of what’s to come and if you are not going to live up to the words you speak do say anything at all. You have placed a expectation on your shoulders that people are going to remember, question you about and are looking forward to seeing. If you are not serious and just like to say things because you hope that the praise and approval of others will elevate you to going forth and doing. I’m here to tell you don’t. You are going to embarrass yourself and lose all creditability.

For example, you know when these studios put out these movie previews and the trailers look dope. I mean the story, the plot, action, music, drama, suspense all rolled up into one film. Then it’s opening day and you go to the theater and the movie is a flop. You feel like you lost 2 hours off your life that you can’t get back. The studios let you down, they got your hopes up just to watch something that the previews were better than the movie. You want your money.

Now the same studios that put out a terrible movie may try to redo the movie over or come out with something new. But it will be harder to promote because the studios lost some if not most of it’s viewers trust. You see trailer flash across the TV screen. The first thing you are going to do is think back to the last let down. You may even say if the last movie was trash why are they remaking another. Or it ain’t going to be good. The studios lost creditability with it’s fans and they lost creditability with themselves as a company that can make blockbuster films. So you are not going to invest your hard earned money, energy, time or effort in trying to go see another movie.

Think about it

7) Fear

Let that fear go. You can, shall and will make it to that finish line. Even if you have to crawl to the finish line. You will be able to say you did it. Helpful tip, don’t be afraid of something that you never started. It is very easy to be afraid of something that is precieved as impossible. However I encourage you to try and watch what was once impossible becomes possible to do.

8) Differentiate

Simply put stay focus. Keeping this marathon in it’s proper perspective. Winning the marathon is the goal. Staying the course, enduring the trials and tribulations, remaining focus, having that stamina to not quit, determined, consistent and hungry is the objective.

9) Keep the faith

I can do all things through Mashiach (Messiah) which strengthens me.

Philippians 4:13

But Yahusha(Christ) beheld them, and said unto them, With men this is impossible; but with Yahuah(God) all things are possible.

Matthew 19:26

10) Go get it

In life no one is going to hand you anything. No one will lay down and allow you to walk on by and grab what’s rightfully yours. You are a man/women you have to take it “go get it.” Don’t reach, don’t ask, but take it. You were granted anything inside world, anything that you imagine you can possess.

Remember you are in competition with no one but yourself

What are some reasons why you haven’t begun your marathon?
