It is time for you to live according to your greatness and worth. Whether I know you personally or not, I applaud EVERYTHING you have done up to now. Some people have gone through far less than you and did not make the progress that you have. But if you are like the majority of people, there is another truth we must address. Have you become settled in past achievements that you have become the victim of mediocrity?
This is a judgment-free zone, but it all boils down to this: If you are doing the work, why work against yourself? If you are going to invest the time, why would you make time work against you? If you are going to sacrifice, why stay in lack?
It does not make much sense when put this way, but many of us do this every day in some area of our lives. “Being busy” means nothing if you are just on a Ferris wheel going nowhere. It may “look good” or be accepted by the audience of mediocrity, but it will rob you of what you truly should have. It will place you into a constant, revolving chain of doubt, regret, frustration, fear, failure, etc. The saddest part of this equation is that it does not have to be this way.
So, where are you “performing” and not seeing the return on investment? What fields are your dreams being lost in and going to die? Where are you lost, even filled to the brim with information but having little to no results?
Whatever serves as your source of motivation, pursue that but do not forget that you are no different. No one or nothing other than God is more powerful than you. Any inspiration that you see can be yours; no magic or wishing is required. Once you accept that reality, you will be able to begin your work to dig deeper.
What is it that is truly holding you back from being the best version of yourself? What is holding you back from the life that you dreamed of? Most importantly, what are you going to do to destroy the gap?
Feel free to share your comments. I would love to hear them and be inspired by YOU!
