Don’t Be Foolish

Keep your eyes on the prize, but don’t do anything foolish to get it. Eagerness and foolishness equals self destruction.


Take Your Time

Rushing progress can sometimes backfire in your face. We rush into working so feverishly and expect all of the chains to connect only to find out the links weren’t put together well enough. And after your hard rushed work, no one notices it. We all yarn for growth. We are all eager to take the next step forward to reach that certain goal or success level. Nothing happens over night, and trust, this is a true statement. I would love to take the short cut to success or to reach a personal goal, but I can’t. There are no short cuts for me to take. So I try to prioritize my time and work diligently to accomplish my goals towards success. I don’t mind taking the stairs up, so long as I make it to the top. And after my walk up I can ride the elevator back down.

Don’t talk about it, be about it.

Talking about it won’t make it happen for ya’. I’ve heard so many people talking about what they are gonna do and how they plan to do it and blah blah blah. Months or even years down the road, those same people are still talking about what they plan to do. My wonder is, when? When do you get to the point of saying, today is gonna be the day I get my ass in gear and put some action behind my words? Does it really take months or even years of talking it up for it to be put into action? It shouldn’t. That’s called procrastination.

Stop YAPPING about what you plan to do and start DOING it. It doesn’t matter what it is you plan to do with your life, so long as you DO. Talking about it won’t make it happen. You can be the dreamer or the doer. The choice is yours. Me, myself, I’m a doer. Remain determined and hungry for what you want. Self motivation can be your biggest motivation.

Go for what you know

I’ve learned over the years that following your initial thoughts on things, can deem the best for you. There is nothing wrong with listening to others for advice, or to hear their thoughts on the matter. But when you know that you may have the answers, go for what you know. There is no need to wait around to hear what others have to say if you think you’re certain. There are certain people who will help lead you in the right direction, and there are others who can help lead you, but won’t.  Everyone is not PRO YOU. Its okay to listen to yourself. If a mistake is made, at least you’ll know that YOU made the mistake on your own and not by listening to someone who has lead you astray. Stick to your guns, believe in yourself and your actions always. If you can’t work hard for you, then who’s willing?
