Everyday, I encounter counterproductive conversations with people or in observance of people. We've all heard them; those "down and out" purposeless seeking conversations that are often left as just- a conversation. Nothing more. I believe in action. I believe that everyone has an opportunity at some point in their life to change their lifestyle for the better. Some of us, believe that the "fruit of our labor" (as I recently reflected to a friend) will lead us to the promise land of life. We refuse to stick ourselves in boxes when we presume our potential; that's SOME of us.
When you assume you can't grow beyond your current state; when you assume you are the "hopeless" that have no opportunity for change you will become the kill joy of your own life. I recently told a 17 year old girl who has been through more in her life than someone 17 years her wiser, that I feared her story would be the repeating of "that" story: that tragic ending. I told her that she had a purpose in this life, and that opportunities are molded in every positive step we took, but they would never come without positive changes and proactive decisions in our lives. As I spoke to her, I thought about all the people in this world who felt just like the 17 year old girl standing before me.
I LIVE differently. I could've been that 17 year old girl that became a victim of circumstances. I discovered at a young age that tomorrow is tomorrow, and today is the day you start living. Every single day of our lives should be about living. Many people don't even know what LIVING is. I love seeing people achieve; I am passionate about watching people grow. Because, when people around me grow it becomes insurmountable to my extricate motivation; which is the compliment of my intricate motivation. Some don't BELIEVE they have the later. LIVING, to me, is about making my status as a person, with humanity, and wealth something to LIVE for.
If you do nothing else today, remember to LIVE; LIVE with ambition, passion, and purpose. Do not be afraid of opportunity. Tell yourself: I love ME more than Love has ever loved... Invest in your LIVING.
