Detach

Remove yourself from your feelings and emotions.  Step outside of yourself in order to think, see, and hear clearly.  Too often, we are lost in ourselves.  Lost in our feelings, emotions, anxieties, fears, and sorrows.  Too often, we can’t get past the inner self, in order to accomplish the tasks to reach our full potential.  […]

Fake

There are a lot of fake people in this world.  Fake in what they say, fake in what they do, and fake in how they portray themselves.  It’s pathetic.  People are trying to be something or someone in order to gain some kind of recognition.  In order to gain some sort of financial backing.  In […]

Inside

This is what is inside of me right now.  Deep within.  Deep within my soul, my spirit, my inner man.  It’s brewing.  It’s burning.  It’s been brewing.  It’s been burning.  I can’t ignore it.  I don’t want to ignore it.  I know it is who I am.  I know it is what I am.  I […]

Change

One of the most difficult endeavors in life is change.  Naturally, none of us likes change.  Our mind wants to live life on auto-pilot.  Our mind will fight to keep us on cruise-control.  Doing the same things, the same way, over and over again, day in and day out.  Our mind will fight for routine, […]

Held Back

I will not be held back.  I will not be held back.  I will not be held back.  I will not be held back.  I will not be held back by my fear.  I will not be held back by the fear of what other’s may think about me.  I will not be held back […]

Listen. Learn. Love. Live

Listen.  Learn.  Love.  Live.  This life is meant to be lived.  Fully.  Passionately.  Extremely.  We only have one opportunity, one shot at this life.  In order to live a full life, one must embrace the need to listen.  Learning to listen, knowing how to listen, is the key that unlocks the door to a full, […]

Self-Control

Self-control.  The mastery over one’s spirit.  The mastery over one’s thoughts, feelings, and emotions.  Self-control demonstrates strength.  Maturity.  Humility.  Power.  Self-control delays impulse.  Delays instant gratification.  Delays natural instinct.  Self-control is learned.  It must be practiced.  It takes patience.  Endurance.  Discipline.  Focus.  Willingness.  Few understand the value of self-control.  Few understand the importance of self-control.  […]

Keep Smiling

Keep smiling.  Just.  Keep.  Smiling.  There are no perfect days.  No day goes exactly as planned.  Things happen.  Stuff happens.  Life happens.  This is fact.  Truth.  Reality.  People are crazy.  Rude.  Inconsiderate.  Inconsistent.  Angry.  Lazy.  Complacent.  Comfortable.  You and I can’t change people.  Not one person.  We can’t change certain things, certain situations.  Again, fact.  […]

The Natural Mind

I want to live in a routine.  I naturally want to live a life of comfort.  Knowing always what is next.  My mind wants routine.  My mind fights to remain comfortable.  The natural mind will do everything in its power to protect you, protect itself.  To preserve.  The natural mind will lead you astray.  The […]

What I Need

What do I need, not, what do I want.  What do others need, not, what do they want.  This is all the difference.  You live for needs, not wants.  You live a life of delayed-gratification.  You put the needs of others ahead of your own, sometimes, not all the time.  You learn the art and […]
