“Tired is only a state of mind”
Leaders don’t follow the pack. Leaders make their own choices and create new legacies. Leaders are different. Leaders aren’t afraid to go against the grain. When everything is going bad, that is when leaders are at their best. While everyone panics, they are poised. To be a leader, you have to be able to handle blame, fight through adversity, and bring your team together. Leaders step up in the toughest of times and bring their teammates with them. The leader doesn’t have to be the best player, but rather the one with the strongest mind and the most heart. Leaders are the ones who want it the most and will not take no for an answer. If your swag is heavy enough, you will have followers.
“Tired is only a state of mind”
” Work hard enough so that at the end of the day you won’t have any regrets”
”There’s a difference between interest and commitment. When you’re interested in doing something, you do it only when it’s convenient. When you’re committed to something, you accept no excuses; only results.”
It stops everything, doesn’t let you achieve your goals, and hinders your growth as a human being. Fear leaves you with an empty feeling. How can you ever accomplish your goals if you keep letting fear get in the way? Stop being scared. If you never try to conquer your fears, you have a zero percent chance of success. There truly is no reason to be afraid, what’s the worst that could happen? If you fail, get back up and figure out a new plan. Without an effort, you will never know what is possible. Fear is only a state of mind, and once you get out of that, you will truly realize your full potential.
Give thanks. Don’t forget what you are grateful for. No matter what you are going through, someone out there has it worse than you. Be thankful for all that you have, whether its friends, family, or health. Each day, be grateful to have the opportunity to live and experience life. If you aren’t thankful, you’ll never be happy with what you get. When everything is going against you; stay strong and always be appreciative. Things will get better, the darkness will go away, and you will get through it. Often times, people don’t know what they have until its gone; don’t make that mistake.
People walk in and out of our lives everyday. The length of time a certain person stays in your life is what varies. Every new person you meet has a distinct personality that makes them original. First impressions are not good measures of compatibility because your first thoughts are completely subjective. You base your first opinion of a person by his or her appearance, and the things you’ve heard about them. To truly understand the person behind the stereotypical mask, you must talk to them. Find out what these new people are about, what they’ve been through, and what their aspirations are. Stop judging people, educate yourself, and create friendships.
Defeat, it hurts.
Not in a physical way, but rather in a gut-wrenching way.
Mentally down with nothing left to give,
Falling down the ladder of success.
Giving up seems like the best option,
At least, this way, there will be no more losing.
Nowhere to turn, nowhere to hide,
What will I do next?
The pain lingers as time passes,
The day remains dark.
But to get over the wall of failure,
I must break to build.
Rid the mind and soul of all things lost,
Except for the lessons each taught.
The pain is temporary,
Through perseverance the hurting stops.
Each defeat, each lesson,
Leads to a stronger foundation.
Those that get through the rough,
Make it to the top of the ladder.
Failure after failure leads to success,
Which is where I will be.
Focus on the positives,
The more I think about it, the more I realize the truth. We all have dreams. We all want more in life. Often, we try so hard to achieve what we feel will make us “successful” that we forget about the world we live in. People focus so much on constantly working towards their goals that they fail to enjoy the moment. As the days go by, we forget to be happy. Happiness loses its value, becomes somewhat of an afterthought. Success is nothing without joy in life, without people to love. As I think about it more, Success is Happiness.
