Destiny is in arms reach...at least that's what they say. You know that little voice that whispers in your ear in the wee hours of the morning when the moon is still shining bright like the sun?? Your inner being repeating over and over "all you have to do is simply reach out your arms...reach past the insecurities...push through the obstacles...ignore the naysayers...be who you are called to be...." Yea that voice. Sometimes that voice is encouraging, but most times it's annoying. Not because I feel like I can't achieve, but more so because I want too sooooo bad that it's really all I think about.
Overcoming every negative statistic and proving everyone wrong consumes my thoughts and actions. I can't be the only one right?? I mean what do you do when your looking out the windows of your future?? You know where you're going but there is still distance and various obstacles standing in between you and your dreams. A great person (me) once said, "grind hard, and then grind some more." I guess that's the secret to success...never stop. Even when you think you've plateaued, pick up another skill, read more, strengthen a weakness....NEVER STOP! So I guess that's the moral of this story. Let your work speak for itself. Work until you can't work anymore and then pay someone to work for you (haha!!) No seriously, just keep working.
