You are enough

Stop acting like you aren’t enough. You are important, you are strong, and you have so much greatness that’s locked up inside of you.

Accept who you are. You are not perfect. But, be patient with yourself and allow yourself room to grow. Remember that you are a work in progress. Don’t punish yourself over the mistakes you’ve made. Be a friend to yourself, not an enemy. You have won many battles but the war will take time. Some days will always be harder than others. But a fact that you should always remember is this: Your current situation is not your destination. Be proud of how hard you’ve worked and how far you’ve come, not just how far you have to go. Don’t compare your journey to others. Don’t worry about living up to others expectations. You are in charge on your own life. Set yourself free from all the worrying because You Are Enough!

As society evolves, so does he.

But he does not reach an apogee and stop; he evolves because he responds to society’s changing ideas and conventions.

He is less of what he was and more of who he has evolved into.

Everyone around him is trying to reach a goal, a destination, and a dream.

Stars can’t shine without darkness: Changing your perspective on challenges

How can you measure the brightness of a star? A star’s brightness is measured by the amount of darkness that surrounds it. The greater the darkness, the brighter the star shines. Now imagine that you are that star but instead of being surrounded by total darkness, you are surrounded by challenges.

My philosophy is that challenges are unrecognizable opportunities that are commonly missed. Although challenges appear as unwanted difficulties that momentarily interrupt our lives, they serve a unique purpose that’s often misunderstood. You might think of challenges as obstacles that are preventing you from reaching your goals, but they are meant to move you out of your comfort zone and closer towards achieving your goals.  We all have things that we are believing for. We all have dreams that we want to accomplish. Most of us have businesses that we want to start. It’s easy to get discourage when we encounter obstacles and setbacks. But those hard times are meant to better you not break you. I know that eventually you will get through whatever obstacle you are facing but you will come out of the situation different. You can go through challenges and come out bitter or you can come out better. That choice is up to you. It’s easy to give up but that challenge is an opportunity for you to grow and get better. Think of it this way, if it was easy than anyone could do it. The challenges in your life serves a purpose but it’s up to you to realize that.

The greater the darkness the brighter the star shines. For what is the purpose of a star without darkness?  The same ability the star has to shine in darkness also hides within you. How can you realize your full potential without a challenge?

Waking up with a purpose. ⏰

The alarm goes off and instantly you reach for the snooze button. You tell yourself you only need 5 more minutes. But what do you need 5 more minutes for?
Why press the snooze button and continue to sleep when you set your alarm clock for a reason? So, what was the purpose of setting the alarm? More important, what’s your purpose of waking up?
When you know you have a goal to accomplish then every morning you should wake up with the mindset that you are going to get one step closer to that goal. Your attitude when you wake up will determine your approach towards the day. It’s time to make your reality your dream world. It’s time to wake up with a purpose. Don’t snooze your dreams and goals.

Fall asleep with a dream and wake up with a purpose.
