May I suggest this piece as your soundtrack as you read this blog:
A Pep Talk:
Ladies and gentlemen, what do you think you are capable of? I assure you, whatever you think it is, you are thinking too small.
There is a power inside of you waiting to grow and shine brighter than you have ever imagined.
Whatever goals you have set for yourself, set them higher. I believe in you. I believe in your ability.
“Whether you think you can or think you can’t, you’re right.” – Henry Ford
Believe in yourself. Right now.
Hold your head high. Relax your shoulders. And say, “Yes, I can.”
You are smarter than you think. You can learn more and soar higher than you ever expected.
It’s there inside of you right now, waiting to be born and shine on this world like nothing else can.
You are the only person with this specific light in this specific moment in time.
Why are you robbing the world of this greatness? More importantly, why are you robbing yourself of enjoying this greatness?
To deny this light is to deny yourself. Can you feel your inspiration dying a little more as you stuff it down, ignore it, and go back to watching TV?
You don’t have to be Picasso or DaVinci or Steven Spielberg to be successful, you just have to take that first step. And then another, and another.
Speilberg wasn’t born a household name. He worked at it. Don’t be afraid to work at your craft.
“We are what we repeatedly do. Excellence, therefore, is not an act but a habit.” – Aristotle
You matter. And what you have to say matters too. Not everyone will understand what you have to say. Disagreements are not to be feared, they are to be expected. This world is too diverse to please everyone. That is the reason for its beauty!
“You have enemies? Good. That means you’ve stood up for something, sometime in your life.” – Winston Churchill
Just remember to respect others’ opinions and you’ll never lose face. And even if you do lose face – so what? The important thing is to keep your HEART and SPARK!
What are you waiting for? What is stopping you? Put down your Negative Nancy attitude and start seeing reality – You Are AWESOME. Own it. Starting now.
“Do not wait to strike till the iron is hot; but make it hot by striking.” – William B. Sprague
