Quote of the Day

Whether at work, at home or in public, we have been trained to believe that who we are at the core of our being is often unacceptable. As a result, we work diligently to live up to – and sometimes down to – what others have made us out to be, whether or not it is an accurate reflection of who we are.

Quote of the Day

All life demands struggle. Those who have everything given to them become lazy, selfish, and insensitive to the real values of life. The very striving and hard work that we so constantly try to avoid is the major building block in the person we are today.
 
Pope Paul VI

Quote of the Day

Your work is going to fill a large part of your life, and the only way to be truly satisfied is to do what you believe is great work. And the only way to do great work is to love what you do.

If you always put limit on everything you do, physical or anything else. It will spread into your work and into your life. There are no limits. There are only plateaus, and you must not stay there, you must go beyond them.

Dear Critic

Dear Critic,

Time to get the lead out of the ass and get to work. Thinking and not doing isn’t going to get me anywhere. In order to improve in life, I am going to need to start taking action. No more hiding. No more postponing. No more. Can’t let distractions get in the way. Have to stay focused and do the job I tell everyone I do.

The skills are there, time to put them to use. I have the knowledge as well. Why do I want to waste them? I have a message and a calling, it’s time I utilized them. Fear is an obstacle easy to overcome. Plus nothing good ever happens from the sidelines.

Have to get in there and play ball. Time to put on my big boy pants and let the world see me. If they don’t like me, well fuck em. Some people will. Not everyone will, but some will.

It’s time to let go of the things getting in the way of self-improvement. Time to let go of the things holding me back. No matter how much it hurts. Those that mind don’t matter, those that matter don’t mind.

I can spew out all the positive reinforcements I want, but unless I actually get out there and do it, nothing will ever change. I no longer want to be bound by the thoughts of others. This is my life, my calling, no one is going to stop me from achieving my dream. I don’t care if they think it’s a stupid dream, its my fucking dream. To hell with them.

There are people of encouragement, but they’re so far away, it doesn’t help. Yes, there are ways to communicate, but I don’t want to infringe on other’s time, so I try not to bother them. Yet, I drop everything to help others in their times of need. They say Karma is a two way street, maybe I should start asking when I need help.

It’s always scary to admit you need help though. I think this is why I don’t ask. I feel like I can do it all by myself, and am learning, I can’t. I do need…

Times up. Time to go.
