Obsession Is The Only Way

You must stay motivated, inspired and dedicated to your goals. If you don’t have that voice inside your head pushing you to stay focused each and every day, it becomes too easy to stray from the path. Momentum can make or break you, depending on which direction your actions take you. You must tune your mind each and every day. Watching videos and listening to motivational soundtracks do that for me. They allow me to put myself into a state of mind that is conducive to a consistent call to action. You must find people to surround yourself with that will enable you to be the person you need to be. Birds of a feather flock together.

They told me it couldn’t be done. They laughed when I said I would run my first marathon. They laughed at me when I said I would turn my life around.

I write about the power of trying, because I want to be okay with failing. I write about generosity because I battle selfishness. I write about joy because I know sorrow. I write about faith because I almost lost mine, and I know what it is to be broken and in need of redemption. I write about gratitude because I am thankful – for all of it.

They laughed at me. They will laugh at you. Let them laugh.
