Are you the person you are because of your environment and the things that have inspired you along the way, or have you been who you are from the beginning and those things were attracted to you?
— African Proverb
The very next time you’re working on something to better your situation or advance your dreams, if you begin to feel you want to push it aside til later, you just “don’t feel up to it,” or you feel your circumstances & resources aren’t favorable…
I dare you to push through and just get it done, right that moment. Get it done! Always remember, where there’s a will, there’s a way! The energy you put out, will always be matched by God.
Prosperity is NOT by luck. It’s by habit!
Your discomfort doesn’t always mean what’s making you uncomfortable is wrong…or even wrong for you.
It’s something you fear, and no matter how much of your life you choose to run, it will chase you, until you confront it and discover your resolution.
It’s up to you to determine how much time you want to waste & how much turmoil you want to face.
While I don’t support inequality, injustice, genocide, or any other gross mishandling of any group within society, we must learn to equip ourselves with the knowledge, respect, uplifting, and love we deserve…and expect from others.
While we can spend all our time debating what should be birthright, we could also be using that energy to peacefully demand the shift, starting by striving toward personal excellence & inspiring others to do the same.
