Life is too short to be wasting it trying to hold on to or fix things that obviously don’t vibrate with you on your current level! The pen that writes your story is in your hands so at any moment you can start over! Many times our unwillingness to let go of the familiar is the only reason why our life isn’t the way we want it to be! Life is about perspective! You know… Half empty vs. Half Full! And some of us have the perspective that we are grateful that we even have a cup… but what we need to realize is that gratitude shouldn’t be about compromise! Gratitude is about not taking things for granted but understanding that your desires are valid and with the universe being abundant you can have it all!!
They say “Only a Knife can Sharpen a Knife!!” They say “Birds of a feather flock together” They also say “If you’re the smartest person in your group, then it’s time to find a new group” Even though we don’t really know who “They” are, They are absolutely right! Will Smith once said that you are the average of the five people you spend the most time with. If you are not continuously surrounding yourself with people who can help lift you higher then you are limiting your potential. Your surroundings and who you associate yourself with have a big impact on how successful you can be! As the saying goes “You can’t soar like an eagle, when you hang around with Turkeys”
While on our journey to greatness we will always see other journeys and struggles that look similar to ours! We will be tempted to follow what worked or didn’t work for them thinking it will help us! We will rationalize our action or lack thereof based on their experiences and create our facts solely on how closely the paths resemble! While this seems practical, it might be the biggest mistake one can ever make! I don’t care how similar a path may look or how closely tied two goals may be; only you can create your own path!
