Is Your Limit only the sky??
I have heard the phrase “the sky is the limit” countless times when someone is referring to a level of achievement in life. Do you truly believe this is the furthest one can go in their accomplishments? I ask this question because I am a strong believer that if there are footprints on the moon, where man once walked, why should one settle for the sky? I’m just saying, think bigger! Believe in yourself without questioning your ability to achieve greater. Greatness is something we all should want to obtain and possess. That doesn’t make us selfish or foolish, wishful thinkers; it makes us confident, determined, proud, hardworking; someone who wants the best that life has to offer.
Knowing our self-worth, having a strong work ethic, and believing in ourselves are three ways to accomplish just about anything we set our mind to. Don’t buy into the negativity of people who don’t possess such qualities in themselves. They are there for a reason, sent by the enemy to keep us in bondage; sent to distract us and get inside our heads. Once they have gotten us off course or feeling sorry for ourselves, all hope of becoming great, successful, a difference in this world goes out the window and we are left working some maximum wage job that we hate. Do you believe that we should enjoy what we do for a living? The answer is “Yes”! We should. Why settle for anything less?
Now there will probably be hard times along our journey, but that’s just the way life works. Nothing comes easy and if it does, you can bet your ass it will leave quickly! Think about it for a second. Take drug-dealers for example. They love the fast money and fancy lifestyle, but how many dealers do you know, with the exception of a few who used the fast money to make their dreams of wanting better come to past so they could get out the game, are happy? I mean truly happy. They cannot be happy too long because they open themselves up to a downward spiral effect.
They become paranoid thinking that everyone is out to get them, always looking over their shoulder. The people they surpass in the operation become jealous and rat em or take em out. All the women/men they try to keep up with move on, or move over to the best friend or the competition and help betray them. They get caught slipping and end up behind bars for a long, long time, or buried in the sand. In the end, it really wasn’t worth losing the years with family, friends and other loved ones. It really isn’t worth losing your life, your freedom, your peace of mind.
The opportunity for better is present. It is up to us if we decide to grab hold to it and soar or dodge it and put on a poor mouth. In the end, it doesn’t matter if we fall. What matters is if we get up or stay down. No one owes us anything. If you believe or think that, you are more confused and lost than I thought. Stop blaming others for failures or setbacks. Get your ass up, start over if you need to and go pass the sky and land on the moon! And the next time someone tells you “the sky is the limit”, gut-punch em and tell em you desire more and will achieve more. Tell them that you are destined for greatness and you will not stop until you reach it. God wants us to have the best…go get it!
Until next time, be inspired, be encouraged and be YOU!!!
