I’m Just Doing My Job…Nothing Special

I was told I was special due to the wonderful gift of creating music to which I humbly declined in acceptance.

I’m not special for doing something that is hardwired in my DNA. My pops is good at making music as his father before him. Simply put….I had the tools and the inspiration to create music from birth. Maybe, the life I was given was a special one….

I’ll accept that!!!

However….what I do doesn’t make me special. There are millions of artist out here in the world that offer a look into the mind of an observer who interprets life and gives back my sharing their outlook.

Maybe some songs I create are special…..I’ll accept that!!!

But me as an individual, I don’t feel anymore special than the next person. I’m here for a reason as we all are….maybe the reason I’m here is special!!!

But….

Not me!!!

I’m just doing my job!!!

Keep It Miving

Motivation is all you need to excel in any endeavor. While others aren’t so busy if you find the strength to go the extra mile you inevitably place yourself ahead of the crowd.

Remember…..

Everyday you have a chance to outdo your previous attempts at success and greatness. Never settle for less in this thing we call life. Had you settled for not striving to gain that extra mile you awaken amongst the many others who chose to rest instead of pushing on.

That decision ultimately doesn’t make you stand out…..

The choice is yours!!!!

Games

I see very clearly and pay attention to the details. Life is not a game so at times I wonder why some people choose to play around.

Decide what you want out of life and go for it. If what you want doesn’t involve others that’s fine. Let them go so that they can find their own way through life.

The funny thing is people have a tendency to try to make you feel guilty because they have issues. They will tell you everything that is wrong with you and how whatever that may be is the reason things are the way that they are.
Learn that these people don’t have your best interest in mind.

More times than not, if a person spent more time being honest with themselves instead of telling you how they honestly feel…things would be a whole lot better!!!!!

With that said, I’m looking forward to finding mine….and when I do….POOF!!!! I’m gone!!!

Obstacles

Go for what you know!

Do what you feel is right for you!

Life is meant for you to live not just exist. You must be willing to give your all in something or else you find you have gained nothing. There are many obstacles we must face but each obstacle is intended to make you grow. Whether that growth is thinking, understanding, or gaining strength, ultimately you realize you become a better person having endured the hardships of the obstacle.

It’s hard to push a boulder up hill so if it is in your path you have to decide what to do. Having a little patience and thinking outside of the box you can come up with a solution. Why push it in the direction you are going? It may be far easier to step to the side and push it off your path. Maybe you could put your effort in climbing over it and continuing on with your mission.

The choice is yours but remember the great individuals find a way around their obstacles. The greatest individuals refuse to let that obstacle remain on that path because they don’t want to leave that struggle to next individual when they can break down the door for all who follow in their steps.

Life is for living and the best way to feel alive is to feel as if you accomplished something. So never let an obstacle hold you back from that accomplishment. If you have made it easier for yourself and others…..mission accomplished!

Well, you get the point!!!!

Stay up peace!!!

Being Content

Learning to be content can be a hindrance as well as beneficial. If you are content because of lack of motivation that’s never good. If your content because you realize you have everything you need to get to next level you’re on the right track.

Sometimes you must understand all the tools to your success lie right in front of you. You may just need to slow down and take a moment to observe your progress in order to evaluate your current position. If you have consistently worked to better yourself you might just find that you are further along than you think. Even though you may have much further to go at least you’ve made it this far.

So in hind sight being content isn’t always a bad thing. It is okay to fall back, take your time, and reflect. During that process you may find that it is perfectly normal to be content…..for just a moment anyways!!!!

Stay focused, be patient, and never give up.

Stay up!!!!

Peace!!!

Look To the Future

Always look forward to new adventures that bring new opportunities and learn to acknowledge lessons learned from the past. The future has the potential to be better than the past so long as you stay focused and strive to be better. It only becomes bleak when your outlook is negative.

The most important thing I’ve learned about life is to surround yourself with the right people. As you get older you learn to differentiate between people who are there for you to help you as well as those who have been placed in your life as obstacle. Not everyone is a true friend even though they say they are. Not everyone is an enemy even though you may perceive them as such.

Take full advantage of the individuals who push you to do better and cherish the advice they give. It’s better to have one person who gives you that push you need rather than to have a bunch of people who criticize your efforts without offering a helping hand. After all, that’s why we are all here…….to help one another.

Peace!!!

Stay up!!!!

Love Movement

Love is a peculiar word. It’s intent is to strengthen the bond between people and promote a peaceful outlook in life in general. Some may say it is an action that shows the highest level of understanding between two people.
All I know for certain is it is something people shy away from even though the feeling itself should bring you all the happiness in the world.

Funny thing about it is that people associate the word with things that will never give them love in return. If You tell someone that you love them watch their reaction. Either they understand or they don’t. Some may go as far as to say they don’t use the word loosely because it mean so much that you shouldn’t use it unless you mean it.

Well, here’s a question. Do you not like to be told you are loved? Or, is it that it should only be used in certain instances. Either way analyzing it from perspective, if you feel the word is being used loosely think to yourself about all the times you used it. If you say things like, I love my car, or my shirt, or my sneakers, or my hair, my nails, my house, or my job and you feel too insecure to share those thoughts with friends or family……….

I’m just going to throw it out there…..you have issues!!! That’s what’s wrong with the world today!!! People are scared to love!!!!

It’s all love!!!!

Evolution

Growth is inevitable to all things that share this great gift called life. Even lifeless elements are subject to change. It’s just a natural part of life that we all have to deal with.

For me this change came suddenly when I realized a couple of things. The first is where I wanted to be in life in the future. The second was where I am at the current moment. Once I aligned the two together I saw clearly some things that I had turned a blind eye to for years and I concluded that I had an issue to address. So I did!!!!

Learning to be comfortable in your own skin requires years of growth and understanding yourself. Whenever you learn to do so other people’s opinions no longer matter. Trust me, I’ve been called all sorts of names and given all sorts of attributes by people I have known because I am comfortable being me.

When you grow in this manner you may find it necessary to also let go of certain things. It’s all a process that becomes clear when you try to align yourself with people who are successful at whatever it is you have set a goal for. It isn’t easy and it never will be. If you don’t try you’ll never know.

With that being said I’ve decided to partner up with someone who has been trying to work with me for a while now. I’ll give credit where credit is due….he has accomplished more than I have so that is a good start. I know one things for sure……failure has never been an option. If you find yourself amongst people who don’t fully understand how you as an individual functions…..make a change and change your support system!!!

Adios, homeboys!!!!

“Every little thing gonna be all right” (Bob Marley)

Staying focused is the key to succeeding at accomplishing goals. Sometimes things can get in your way and get you completely off track. It’s at these times that either you pick up and get back to doing what you set off to achieve or you continue going down a path that ultimately takes you to a dead end.

It’s far better to realize that you are off track as soon as possible than to ignore the signs because sometimes retracing steps can add more strain to your success. You never want to be so far gone that it is pointless to get back to your original point of going astray.

Destiny knows what it’s doing so let her do her job. Just enjoy the ride and all things work themselves out. The road to success isn’t always smooth so just be ready for the rough areas and everything will be alright!!!
