Note to Self: What are you going to do about it?

“It doesn’t matter what’s happened to you. What are you going to do about it?”

~Les Brown


What Happened to the Dreamers?

What happened to the dreamers?

The builders?

The leaders and gift givers?

What happened to the pursuit of something greater than ourselves?

The desire to become something more?

Where’s the dedication?

The discipline?

The hunger to succeed against all odds?

Have we become so complacent in our actions?

Have we given up already?

Have we denied ourselves the freedoms we dream about?

There’s nothing wrong with dreaming, but pursue your dreams.  Build the hunger in you.  The things we dream about as children never truly go away.  They stay with us as adults but are overshadowed by work, family and other societal demands.  But what about you?  What do you want?  Have you taken time to do something for yourself?

Don’t delay taking care of yourself and don’t put it aside until everyone else is taken care of first.  Take the time to nourish who you are to become.

Note to Self: Remember Your Reasons

If you feel as though you’ve fallen behind, remember why you started this journey.  Keep those reasons close, you’ll need them when the road feels lonely.  Use them to overcome feelings of depression and self-doubt.  Use them to fuel your purpose and strengthen your character.  Use them to smother your fears and replenish your faith.  Use them to manifest your dreams.  Use them to stay focused and build your courage.  Use them to reprogram your mind and develop a better vision of yourself.  Be persistent and stay focused.  Your reasons will take you there.
