Don’t Be Ashamed Of Your Struggle

Everyone struggles. It doesn’t matter who you are or what your current status is in life, everyone struggles with something. Struggle is not an indication of worth or ability; it’s a sign of active engagement toward a worthwhile cause.

Struggle comes standard issue with life. No one gets out of life alive, and no one accomplishes their destiny or achieves their dream without struggle.

Struggle isn’t a reflection of what you don’t have; it’s a reflection of your determination to get what’s yours at all cost. Struggle is the evidence that you’re trying.

To be ashamed of your struggle is to self sabotage your own success. Shame is a self imposed. Stop it. Don’t allow societal pressure to dictate your self worth. Don’t allow struggle to try and convince you you’re not capable, or it will never happen for you.

Look yourself in the mirror and ask yourself

1. Am I giving it my all?
2. Is this the best I can do?

If the answer is “YES,” welcome to the club. You made it. Entrance fee paid! Keep Pushing you’re almost there!

If your answer is “NO,” stop blaming everyone else. Don’t play the victim; it’s not becoming. Fess up to laziness, lack of discipline, wrong thinking, overeating, whining, complaining; whatever your case may be. Correct it. Rise above it. And get on with it!

Correct it. Rise above it. And get on with it!

Don’t spend one more second in what you don’t want. Don’t waste anymore energy on justifying ‘what,’ or ‘why,’ just implement the necessary change and move on!

Don’t be ashamed of your struggle. To struggle is to be human. But make sure you do something with yours. Don’t struggle just to struggle; just for the story. Turn your struggle into success, into an accomplishment that can inspire others.

Make something happen out this mess you find yourself in. It’s the only way to shut your critic(s) up. It’s the only way to finally prove to yourself “I got this!”

Just Because It Isn’t Working Doesn’t Mean It’s Not Meant To Work

Destiny Quote

“To everything there is a season, and a time to every purpose.”

Have you ever found yourself at odds with a person you believed was a divine connection? Have you ever struggled to find your place in a job or a business that you knew was meant for you?

Even the best laid plans, divine connections, and opportunities of a life time, can fail outside of “Timing,” “Synchronicity,” if you please.

Just because “it” isn’t working, doesn’t mean it’s not meant to work.

Before you throw away what you’ve been praying your entire life for, consider that it may be ‘right;’ it just may not be the right time.

“Destiny is the deliberate fulfillment of purpose at the divinely appointed time.” – Jeff Crume

Trust the reason that brought you to this place, to this person, to this opportunity, in the first place. Don’t fall into the trap of indifference and miss the purpose of destiny.

You were meant to meet; you just have to get through what you don’t like about each other to discover what brought you together to begin with.

If Humanity Had An Enemy

If Humanity had an enemy, the Ego would certainly be it.

That which tempts us is the same that judges us after we indulge. That which prods us to push past comfort’s edge is the same that convinces us we’re not courageous enough to leap. And it is the same, then, that condemns us for remaining…the same.The Ego demands, judges, ridicules, bullies, twists, convicts and condemns; rendering Humanity, at times, helpless in its grasp. What a miserable vicious cycle. Who will free us from this incessant enemy?Closer look reveals that the Ego is nothing more than a ‘pretender‘; smoke and mirrors, a ‘Great Wizard‘ who hopes you never look behind the curtain. The Ego doesn’t have to fight to win; it just needs to convince you that you do. All the while, the Victor – You – stands silently by, fully equipped and poised for battle just waiting your orders; orders that only you can give. The orders are not to fight, but to stand, and not just stand, but STAND UP!The Ego is a bully, and like with every bully once you stand up to it, it shrinks back to its own pitiful insecure self, sulking off looking for another insecure victim to taunt and torment. A bully will only bully you as long as you let them.

How much has your Ego cost you?

How much money has your Ego cost you? How much precious time has your Ego stolen from you? It’s time to stand up and push back. You are the Victor, not the victim. You have the power within to defeat this enemy once and for all. Who will free us from this incessant enemy? You will! I will! We will!
