FOR WHAT IT IS WORTH ENTERING A NEW CAN BECOME THE GREATEST FEAT YOU WILL EVER ACCOMPLISH. UNLIKE MOST REALIZATIONS ENTERING A NEW CAN COVER MANY SUBJECTS WHEN IT COMES TO PUTTING TOGETHER A PLAN FOR SELF IMPROVEMENT. FIRST YOU MUST CREATE A PLAN,BECOME DILIGENT, AND FAITHFUL. IT WILL BE HARD BUT IN THE END IT WILL BE WORTH THE HARD WORK. IN A SENSE, YOU ARE PUTTING BLINDERS NEXT TO YOUR EYES AND STAYING IN YOUR OWN LANE AS FIGURE OF INTEGRITY AND PRIDE. SPEAKING FOR MYSELF, I HAVE A HARD TIME STICKING TO PLANS AND ACTUALLY FOLLOWING THROUGH WITH MY PLANS BUT THIS TRAIT OF MINES IS SOMETHING THAT I AM WORKING ON. USING ME AS AN EXAMPLE, NEVER PROCRASTINATE, NEVER HESITATE, AND NEVER AVOID THE DESTINY YOU FEEL LIKE YOU DESERVE. DON'T BE LIKE ME, BE BETTER THAN ME, AND EVENTUALLY BE BETTER THAN THE FORMER SELF YOU SAW AS AN ISSUE IN YOUR MIND.
In a moment of feeling despair that the work is too hard and that you will never be able to overcome a feat that has been presented to you, remind yourself that pressure creates diamonds. Speaking for myself, I know that the hardships that I had to overcome in life made me a to a stronger and more tolerant person to certain obstacles. Although I am not perfect, and no human is perfect, I find time to focus on the things that create distance from old thoughts that will tend to linger around and potentially hold me back from the task at hand. To process is to forget, having amnesia in a sense. To keep moving forward, to have faith and strength in yourself to know that you will be okay in the end. Given the time, no matter the issue, remind yourself that you will one day be a diamond that came from the rough. Just as if you were a rose that grew from concrete. At the end of the day, it could be worse as I would often to tell myself. Life is a lesson and a blessing in itself, don't waste it sulking, hoping for an easier end to come and save you, struggle and failure is needed for success.
IN LIGHT OF THE NEW YEAR IT IS TIME TO CREATE TO SELF, AND PAY ATTENTION TO HEALTH. MENTALLY, WE CAN CURATE ANYTHING THAT WE PUT OUR MINDS TO, EVEN IN THE EVENT OF DISTRESS AND BEING LOST. AS MUCH AS WE SPEAK THINGS INTO EXISTENCE AS HUMANS, WE MUST ALLOW OURSELVES TO BRING STRUCTURE, DISCIPLINE, AND LAWS TO OUR OWN MORALS. SPEAKING FOR MY SELF, IN ORDER TO CHANGE CERTAIN HABITS I NEEDED TO MAKE ADJUSTMENTS IN MY OWN MIND TO CREATE A BARRIER TO THWART WHATEVER NEGATIVE ENERGY CONSISTENTLY REMAINED DORMANT WITHIN MY MIND.
WE MUST COME TO TERMS WITH REALITY, FOCUS ON OURSELVES BEFORE CONTRIBUTING TO WHAT WE FEEL SOCIETY NEEDS. IT IS IMPORTANT TO UNDERSTAND THE FACT OF KNOWING WHAT WE TRULY WANT OUT OF LIFE, AND WE HAVE TO ACCEPT OURSELVES BY BEING OUR SELF. CREATE YOUR OWN MANIFESTO, YOUR OWN SET OF LAWS AND POLICIES. USE THESE THINGS AS A FOR HOW YOU THINK YOU SHOULD LIVE YOUR LIFE, AND MORE IMPORTANTLY HELP YOURSELF!!!
Lets talk about it, that being the state of laziness in a society where ambition lacks due to the creation of technology. Over the years, for me personally I have had my fair share of ups and downs. That being lazy, never really amounting to whatI could become as a person due to the climate of living as a millennial. Seeing your piers gaining followings off of mere lies and off of social media itself can be draining. Although the cons can outweigh the pros, I can say I use it as a form of motivation. Knowing that the possibilities are endless when it comes to the live you want for yourself can be invigorating. Seeing others accomplishments puts me in a space to where I need to get my act together. It is important that I have a fire burn inside of me, and to know that fire can lead me to wherever I need to go is gratifying to say the least. Once the goal is set and met, its such a better feeling knowing where you came from and allowing the world see your growth and hopefully inspire others to do the same.
We are living in a time where the capacity to do good while being trustworthy is low. Its conflicting for me, and as a artist it creates a great influence for me to harp on. In the act of doing the right thing to benefit yourself can be a very difficult decision, even in the event where the feeling might be indecisive. One of the hardest decisions I have had to deal with, that being do what’s best for myself is a bittersweet feeling more or less. I love the feeling of being free but I hate the feeling of guilt. To do good is whats most important, what I was raised on was to be a caring person, but in this time that we are living in the right thing to do could possibly mean not caring so much. This has been a adjustment for me and it can be one for you as well. To say doing good is hard is an understatement, it is extremely difficult at times. But no matter what, in order to change the narrative of yourself where you want to be, just deal with it. It could be worse.
I recognize that I have a problem with the idea of being stagnant. Consistency as well as urgency when it comes to my goals are essential. Although my goals are clear for myself, I have a problem getting distracted along the way. Life is full of obstacles, all of them are tests in my opinion and can be seen as something that we would have a hard time overcoming. These are lessons that we must overcome to save ourselves from whatever we feel might hold our ambition hostage. Time is our most valuable luxury and we must use it wisely. Time is our asset in regards to everything, it gives us a sense of limit but an urgency when it comes to living our lives how we want. I have never truly been focused, and after realizing that I am willing to share my faults with those who feel that I have never focused either. We can accomplish anything with the will, faith, and ambition to do it.
Having a strong believe in yourself can go a long way. In a way we can almost see the end in reach whenever it comes to working towards our dreams and goals. Nevertheless as someone who takes pride in the morals I keep, I can only imagine the lengths those will go to get their message across. Even if the message will possibly conclude in them losing everything that they worked so hard for. The ultimate sacrifice is to put what you love first and to have faith that you made the right investment. Standing up for yourself, believing in yourself to be a person of change, is a strong minded person in my opinion. Whether it be could or bad, the power that we have in our minds is underestimated. Messages we send off can be interpreted many ways and can change the fabric of life itself. Putting your dreams first is vital, and inspiring others to do the same to join the cause of right is vital as well.
When speaking on addiction, I must start with myself. Speaking on the influences it has had on my life and my art. In regards to others, given how much addiction has made an impact on my life, I can only imagine what it does for others. Whether it be positive or negative, the impact is all the same. Creating a stream of thought that would be seen as a outlet for those who need to express their inner demons. We all go through hardships, as a result we tend to cling on to the thing that drives us insane. Speaking for myself, I can honestly say I have vices that I would love to conquer one day. We all have a story we want to tell and in telling that story we hope to influence others and potentially help them.
Your foundation is everything, and it will shape the way you are and will go with you wherever you decide to go. As a creator I find it hard to escape your past when it comes to finding a enlightenment. From time to time I can get emotional about the things and people I love and care about deeply. All the influences and material things that I hold dearly cary great weight. In saying that, we all need to find a means to tell our story. This is something I feel every person would want to do, telling a story that could inspire. Needless to say, I am thankful for what I have learned in my years of living. I cannot speak for others on what made them who they are but i’m sure their foundation was part of it.
Consistency is a tough task for us as people in my opinion. We stay stagnant on a lot of issues, as well as lack change within our stances. We may feel like we are progressing from time to time, and some of that may be true, but we always fall back into what never should do. Essentially its a trap, and it keeps us in a bind or a loop of some sort. We can never truly make change, therefore we will always be connected to history rather than the future.
Speaking for myself, i can say that iv’e been on a binge of complacency for majority of my life. The one thing that has been constant, is me not paying attention to what blessings I do have. Everything that has occurred in my life in a positive sense has always been a thing iv’e never been accustomed too. We have to live in the moment and prepare for the future consistently. We never know when all can be taken away from us.
