Don’t lose focus. Don’t allow yourself to become distracted. Don’t allow yourself to become lost. Stay the course. Continue to walk down the less-traveled path. Continue to do the difficult things. Ignore the noise. Ignore the negativity. Ignore the foolishness of those around you. You know what you need to do. You know who you are, who you need to become. It’s not easy. It never will be. You don’t want it easy. Deep down, you know the struggle is good for you. The struggle is teaching you, will continue to teach you. Learn. Apply. Grow. Mature. Be open. Be humble. Be quiet. Work hard. Work smarter. Keep up the grind. Live. Express. People don’t understand. They will never understand you. You are different. You have chosen a different path, a different road. People will laugh. People will scoff. People will gossip. People will try to tear you down. That’s o.k. They have chosen their path. You cannot change them. Be patient. You be you. Lead. Be the example. Let your actions, your life speak. People will watch. People will listen. You will influence, impact those who are meant to be. Stand strong. Stand your ground. Be rationale. Reflect. Be realistic. Embrace reality. Receive and apply correction. No one is perfect. You are not perfect. You will fail. You will fall short. AWESOME. You will continue on. Don’t quit. Never give up. Relax. Enjoy the beauty. Enjoy the moment. Be thankful. There is no hurry. Be consistent. Allow yourself to love. Allow yourself to be loved. Be willing to adjust. Be willing to learn from your mistakes. Bring people along, IF, they are willing. Encourage. Build others up. Expect nothing in return. It’s not about you.
