As the days go by my focus becomes sharpened. My awareness broadens and my sight becomes more clear. I realize this blog has transformed into something other than what it started off to be. However, I'm enjoying what it's doing to me. I feel changed simply from sharing with you what I've stored inside for so long. When things are not expressed they tend to be forgotten.
Material Prosperity belongs to those whom are willing to work for it's obtainment. There is nothing for free, especial not Material Prosperity. I've long abandoned the idea of getting rich quickly, as so should you. All good things are worth working for and you only gain prosperity from the wisdom you build along the way. Knowledge and experience are extremely important to obtain. I don't believe in waiting for the opportunity to present itself to begin learning or gaining experience. If there's no opportunity, I create it.
For me to transform my mind from doubt and fear of failure to unstoppable confidence and surreal determination, it took a process. I had to practice focusing my mind on my life's work, while controlling my emotions. Controlling emotions can be a difficult task. It includes eliminating anger, hatred, jealousy, selfishness, cynicism, and any other destructive emotions that generate negative energy. Our thoughts control our actions and influence the actions of those around you. Take the time to listen to your friends and see if they speak in a negative manner towards the world. If they're negative and you surround yourself with them, it's because you're negative as well. Remember "Like Attracts Like."
I can't stress enough the importance of your thoughts. I talk to people all the time who always say things like "I wish I could do this" or "Maybe someday I'll start to chase my dreams" or even "success isn't guaranteed." No doubt these statements are being said from their heart. A heart attached to a mind with no faith. Allow me to clarify, whether its going to rain a week from now or be sunny, that is not guaranteed. If I workout everyday and eat healthy, it is guaranteed I'll become in shape and healthy. Those are two very different scenarios that show the separation between controllable and uncontrollable situations. If I wake up every morning at 7am and work 12 hours at playing football, you can expect to see significant changes in my performance within one month. Much less 10 years! This concept can be applied to your goals no matter what they are. If you spend your life doing something you love, it is inevitable that you'll become great at it.
Set a high enough goal in your life and make it your purpose for waking up every morning. Dedicate your life to becoming the best at what you love, while making sure to not violate the rights of others, and no one will be able to stop you. Nor, will anyone want to stop you.
I leave you with this one last thought. When the 10 year mark passed for being out of high school, I looked back to reflect on life. I realized that 10 years went by without my permission. Time didn't care if I was ready for it to pass, it wasn't willing to wait for me. A thought hit me like a bolt of lighting. I was 10 years into the future looking back at my life again (20 years later), and I was in the same position. I ask myself, "Am I willing to let another 10 years pass before I do something?" Then, I suddenly realized that I was standing in the beginning of the next 10 years. "Right now is the time for me to act!" I told myself, and I haven't stopped since. In high school, I thought I was going to be successful in the future. When the future caught up with me, I knew I had to change my approach. Without a definite road map of how you intend to achieve success... you won't find it.
If we are ever to live in the abundant life God promised for his children, we need to do something now.
