Emotional Roller Coaster – Be Limitless
You won’t make any of the shots you don’t take.
These last few months have been a complete emotional roller coaster. While I don’t have all the answers, life has forced me to learn more of them each and every day. I seek answers, the right answers. I don’t seek people anymore, I seek God. I don’t rely on people to guide me, I allow God to guide me. This has been the sole difference in my life that has positively changed the entire outcome of who I am.
We are placed on this earth to be something great. However, life tends to push us back. We hang around people who don’t have the vision you have, so they pull you back. You become mediocre because that is what you are around. Stop being around these people. They are toxic to your dreams. If it’s a relationship you value, the best thing for you to do is support the other person while he/she is finding his/her own way, but separate yourself from being distracted by the person. People with no clear vision will become a distraction to yours. It’s time to let those people go.
What else can you let go?
Your negative mindset for one. Many of us grew up in broken homes. We had no clear path. All we knew is that we had to finish school and attempt to make something of ourselves. While I always knew I was meant to do something on a larger scale, I held back. I did everything I could to fit it. It got me nowhere except losing people who cared about me, in jail, and searching for a path that would allow me to have a job and continue to fit in.
It took me almost 35 years before I finally said, enough is enough. I began to let things go that were toxic to who I was. I let my career go. I let people go. I almost let myself go. But it wasn’t over for me. God had another plan.
At age 41, I am finally living my destiny. While it will take a while to get where I truly belong, the more I plug along, the more I will get there. I have a gift. You have a gift. What is YOUR gift? Ponder that for a while. I’ve been trying to so hard to figure everything out, but truth is, it’s not for me to figure out. It’s not for YOU to figure out. Let go and let the universe take control, no matter what you may or may not believe. There is a higher power and it’s going to lead you where you are meant to be. You can choose to accept your destiny or fight it. For me, I choose to accept it and take it to its fullest potential.
Stop holding yourself back. Believe in yourself. Make the impact you were meant to make. Be present. Be accountable. Be authentic. People will want you in their lives the more you shine your light.
