Poetry, music, creative writing and a desire to inspire…..Isaiah 41:10: So do not fear, for I am with you; do not be dismayed, for I am your God. I will strengthen you and help you; I will uphold you with my righteous right hand.
Be not afraid of going slowly, be afraid only of standing still. – Chinese Proverb
There will be obstacles
There will be distractions
There will be deterrents
There will be voices
There will be doubts
There will be plenty of reasons for you to stop, to call it quits, to just give up.
Don’t stop, don’t quit, don’t give up.Easier said than done at times.
When the vision is clear, the results will appear. Keep your mindset positive as you work your plan, flourish, and always remember why you started. – Germany Kent
The critics will criticize
Those that envy you will try to damper your enthusiasm
And those that don’t understand will simply try to confuse you
Feelings come and go but the decision to believe is a matter of choice. It’s not based on what you see, it is based on agreement that what you desire, want, hope for, will come to pass. Everyday brings new thoughts to go with what you’ve already been thinking. Try to stay aligned with your goal, we might teeter at times but as long as we don’t fall completely over, we can make it.
“Even if no one believes in you, as long as you believe in you, you will always be one up.”
The dream, the goal, the vision is set in your heart and mind. It something that you want, that you desire to achieve. You and you alone know the depth of the sincerity in your heart about reaching your goal. Sometimes your efforts cannot be physically seen and it may cause others to see you as lackadaisical, lethargic or not really wanting it as much as you say…to them I say “fuck you,” you don’t know my heart.
When you believe in something so much that at times your soul hurts because you can envision it as clear as day, you know it’s bound to come life. You will hear from the naysayers, the doubt spreaders, those that think you’re in over your head. Don’t let them get you down or pull your dreams out from under you.
If you know your heart, you know what you want and if you believe, then you know that you will get there.
“It takes just one idea or act to connect the dots between hard work and success… Don’t relent until you find it” ― Val Uchendu
YOU CAN DO IT!
These four words should be on auto play each time you are faced with a moment of discouragement, when the world seems still and silent. There will be times when things are falling in line just as you hoped and working towards. Then there are the moments that test you, the moments that question your seriousness about what you are working towards. In these moments you can feel disappointment, discouraged and doubtful (the three Ds).
To get to where we want or desire to be, we must be relentless in our efforts. We can plan and strategize, then put this into action. When the three Ds present themselves, we must be relentless in our hope, faith and courage. It can be hard to maintain sometimes because as I said, there will be moments when the world will appear to come to a standstill as you are waiting for the next course of action. As long as you are making an effort, everything will come together in alignment with your efforts.
YOU CAN DO IT!
BELIEVE IN YOU
BELIEVE IN WHAT YOU WANT TO DO
BELIEVE THAT YOU WILL HAVE WHAT YOU NEED TO GET TO WHERE YOU WANT TO BE
BELIEVE THAT YOU CAN AND WILL GET TO WHERE YOU WANT TO BE
BELIEVE THAT ALL THINGS ARE COMING INTO ALIGNMENT FOR WHAT YOU WANT
BELIEVE THAT IS HAS BEEN DONE
Stay inspired and keep rising.

If you don’t put anything in place, do not expect miraculous results to appear.
– Germany Kent
Life will give you signs and then there is God, He will make it as clear as day. When you are blessed to really see how wonderful this life can be, when the conditions have not been in your favor for far too long and you fail to grasp that blessing fully, then you are only fooling yourself by standing in the conditions that are unfavorable while allowing the blessing to slip away.
When you receive that wake up call and press the snooze button, eventually you will wake up with the regret that you had the most wonderful opportunity and you fell asleep on it.
I don’t want to fall asleep and I am fully aware of the blessing. I got my wake up call (and several nudges) that at times there is no right time and the time is now. So I have to get my shit together and ass in gear (all kidding aside). Life is waiting and I don’t want to lose out.
