Get off your butt and make it happen!
Every morning I listen to a motivational video, whether it be a sermon or a podcast. If there is one thing that I learned over the course of this year, it’s don’t allow ANYONE – family or friend – to tell you what you can and cannot do. I love when others challenge me in saying what I cannot do because what they don’t realize is that I will not stop until I get it done. If I have to keep my head down for a week, a month or a year in order to accomplish it, I will do just that.
This is the attitude that we all must possess. The real challenge of growth mentally, spiritually and physically is what you do in the process after you get knocked down. Anyone can have faith when all is going well, but what about when life punches you right in the face and knocks your two front teeth out? We’ve all established this false reality of how perfectly we think our stories should go, and it’s just not that simple. Life is hard, period. I don’t care how easy someone may make it look via social media, that is simply not the truth. They had to work for that spot. Nothing that looks easy is ever easy!
When you truly get to that place of "I'm tired of this," and you finally want to get to the top of that mountain and serious about it, there is nothing or no one who can stand in your way. No matter how many times you get knocked down, you’ll find a reason to get up and try a second time, a third time, a fourth time, a fifth time. Materialistic things will not phase you, others’ victories will not make you envious, “haters” are non-existent to you and it’s because you are so laser focused that none of that even matters.
So this week hone in on your reason and focus. You don't have time to waste anymore. At some point there is no excuse. If you want something bad enough, you'll find a way to make it happen. Simple as that. Finish this year out strong so you can start the new year off in rocket-launch mode.
Sending love and positive vibes your way! Yvonne Camille
