Don’t Get Sucked In

Don’t get sucked in.  Don’t get sucked into the games of those around you.  Don’t get sucked into the ways of the world.  Don’t get sucked into the desires of your natural being.  Don’t get sucked into mediocrity.  Don’t get sucked into complacency.  Don’t get sucked into negativity.  Don’t get sucked into gossip.  Don’t get sucked into pride.  Don’t get sucked into comparing, one-upping.  Don’t get sucked into doing, just to be seen, to be recognized.  Don’t get sucked into pleasing man.  Don’t get sucked into failing to listen.  Don’t get sucked into arrogance.  Don’t get sucked into trying to be someone else.  Fight each day, to avoid getting sucked in.


I have so much room to improve.  I have so much room to get better.  Every day is an opportunity to work on me.  To work on those areas within my life that need the improvement.  That need to get better.  I am not perfect.  I don’t have it all together.  I don’t have it all figured out.  I want to improve.  I want to get better.  I want to be the best version of myself.  I want to be someone to follow.  I want to lead.  I want to be an example.  I want to be more positive.  I want to serve others, help others.  I want to listen.  I want to learn.  Teach.  Mentor.  Grow.  Mature.  Explore.  Expand.  Connect.  Pursue the uncomfortable.  Resist the status quo.  I have to continue to remember that today is a gift!  Today is DEFINITELY an opportunity!  Life will not always go as planned.  Life will not always unfold the way I want it to.  It’s OK!  I have to go with the flow.  I have to be open.  Flexible.  Adaptable.  Willing.  It’s not about me.  It’s about others.  I work on me, in order to serve others.  In order to help others.  I don’t have to try to be anyone but me.  I am who I am.  I don’t have to worry about what others are or aren’t doing.  I take care of my business.  That’s it!  Don’t judge.  Don’t compare.  Don’t try to one up.  Run your race.  Run your race, at your pace.  Stay in your lane.  Have confidence, be confident in your abilities, your gifts, your work ethic.  Live boldly.  Live strongly.  Attack each day.  Take advantage of each day, each opportunity.  Stay focused.  Remember humility.  Remember kindness.  Remember what it’s all about!  relentlessly pursue excellence.  Relentlessly pursue your dreams.  Your passions.  Relentlessly encourage.  Relentlessly love.  Relentlessly rise above.

Be the Person

No one has life figured out.  No one has all the answers.  Those who would like you to believe they know something you don’t, are full of crap.  Those who paint the picture of an “all together” life, struggle as much, if not more, probably  more, than you.  I don’t care who you are, where you are from, how much money you do or don’t have, not a single person is immune to life’s difficulties, pains, frustrations, questions, and searchings.  All of us are mere projects.  Works in progress.  We are all failures.  We all fall short.  None of us have all the answers.  None of us have life figured out.  We all have fears.  We all have anxieties.  We all have insecurities.  We all wonder.  With all of our differences, we are all quite similar.  VERY similar.  We have all come from the same place, have the same origin.  Don’t get caught up in yourself.  Don’t get lost in yourself.  Blinded by yourself.  Don’t allow yourself to think you are somehow better, that you have arrived.  You aren’t better, sorry.  You haven’t arrived, sorry.  Check yourself.  You had better humble yourself.  Get over yourself.  You had better realize who you really are.  What you really are.  The sooner we realize our frailty, the sooner we move into growth.  Maturity.  Advancement.  Life is about moving forward.  Progressing.  Learning.  Failing.  Serving.  Exploring.  Expanding.  Loving.  Helping.  We have to let go, in order to grasp, in order to gain.  We have to be open, in order to see, in order to receive.  We have to be willing, in order to succeed, in order to positively impact.  We have to lose ourselves, in order to find ourselves.  Be the person who listens.  Be the person takes the time to spend with others.  Be the person who reflects.  Be the person who is self-critical, but gentle.  Be the person who is flexible, but disciplined.  Be the person who truly cares.  Be the person who is secure in who they are.  Be the person who shines.  Who brightens.  Who builds up.


If you want to be a life long learner, you had better learn to listen.  You are nothing.  You aren’t as great as you think you are.  You don’t know as much as you think you do.  You have weaknesses.  You have failed.  You will continue to fail.  You will continue to fall short.  Too often, people think they know.  They think they have something figured out.  They stop listening.  They stop learning.  They stop growing.  They stop progressing.  They stall.  They get stuck.  They remain stuck.  Shut your mouth.  Quit talking so much.  Get over yourself.  Humble yourself.  Open your ears, and LISTEN!
