Never Go Around, Always Through

If there’s an obstacle
or a problem in your life
never go around it
always forge ahead
and go through it
If you try to take the path
of least resistance
then you’re cheating yourself
Going through
that tunnel of darkness
and somehow reaching
the light at the end of it
will bring you all the rewards and richness
you could never get
if you went around
Going through
will give you
the will, the strength, the knowledge and the confidence
to tackle and endure
anything and everything
that is thrown our way

Be The Catalyst Of Your Future

When you go after your dreams,
let nothing stand in your way
Do no let doubt sabotage it
Doubt is a mindset
that we all encounter
It may develop from past experiences,
or from future anxieties,
or other people’s opinions
Giving in to doubt
leads to uncertainty
and creates a fear of failing
It kills more desires than failure ever will
But the chance to get back up
and try again
is all up to you
Can you muster the courage
to challenge your doubts
and take action?
If so, you have the ultimate power
in making your dreams a reality
Be the catalyst of your future

The Writer’s Blueprint

There are people
that want to be writers
but few are willing to do what it takes

to master the craft
If you’re willing,
what’s the blueprint?
You must be willing
to make an attempt,
to fail,
to learn
You’ll fall at some point,
pause to take on other priorities
or get distracted

If that happens,
just get back on track and try again
Continue with your attempts
until you get it
Continue until you do not
possess self-doubt
Keep getting back up
and
strive to try again

Just Keep It Moving

When you are faced
with unforeseen problems,
just keep it moving
When you are tasked
with a ton of things,
just keep it moving
When insurmountable obstacles
appear before you,
just keep it moving
When there is darkness and gloom
surrounding you,
just keep it moving
The only way is through
Going forward will keep you focused,
your resilience will strengthen,
positivity will flow everlasting
and
the light will eventually appear
if you,
just keep it moving

What Keeps Me Going

When life’s obstacles
put my back against the wall,
what keeps me going…
my family
When challenges arise
and I have nowhere to turn,
what keeps me going…
my friends,
When darkness overcomes me
and there’s no hope in sight,
what keeps me going…
my faith
When the road is long and hard
and I feel like quitting,
what keeps me going…
my confidence
Living every day
is another opportunity
for me
to go for everything
I want and dream of
So never give up
When life brings you down
ask yourself,
“What keeps you going?”

Hold Onto Your Dreams

When life becomes crazy
and your mind is a mess
“Hold onto your dreams”
and hope for the best

If your path becomes unclear
you’ll start to have doubt
“Hold onto your dreams”
for it’ll all work out

It may seem bleak
with no future in sight
“Hold onto your dreams”
everything’ll come to light

Anything is possible
with the right frame of mind
“Hold onto your dreams”
all your desires will be aligned

You’ll achieve your life’s goals
with motivation and flair
“Hold onto your dreams”
inspire hope to everyone, everywhere.

Mid-Life Reflections #12

When I was younger, I’ve felt like I was never successful in all of my life. It’s mainly because I was an indecisive person who worried too much. I wandered around but could never break out of my little world. I used to make ambitious plans during the night but continued to grumble about my daily grind the next morning. It got to the point that I was fed up with my place in life and decided that I needed to make a change. I wasn’t going to wait for the next day, I needed to act immediately. I made a commitment to to stay focused on whatever endeavors I pursued, maintained my demeanor of perseverance and became eternally optimistic in everything. In short, I learned that it all starts with you. If you don’t like something, do something about it. Make a change in your life, “you” need to be the one to initiate it. Don’t wait for tomorrow or possible things that may happen. Do something about it. Dream big, there’s no limit to your potential. It’s your life, live it the way you would like it to be. Start now and make a change for the better.
