Rise and grind

Rise and become who you were meant to be.

Rise and fight for your dreams.

No more excuses. No more blaming what you can’t control. You are where you are because of you. You are not who you want to be because of you. It’s all because of you.

Rise and grind.

Wake up. From the bullshit you keep telling yourself as to why you can do this or can’t be that.

Wake up from the idea that you are what others tell you.

Wake up from the fairytales that tell you you have to wait for good things to happen to you.

Wake up and realize your potential.

Do anything you can to achieve more, become more, do more, give more.

Learn in order to fulfill your destiny.

Wake up from years of social conditioning, from heartbreak, pain, unnecessary stress.

Wake up and do what makes you happy.

Don’t try, do.

Don’t wish, plan.

Don’t think, feel.

Don’t dream, decide.

Wake up and grind.

Don’t take this day for granted.

Wake your ass up and live today as if it’s your last day on Earth.


Because it may well be so.

Rise and grind.

    It’s as simple as this! No point in waiting, things that I want must be taken.

  12. If this doesn’t kick you in the ass and motivates you, I don’t know what could.

  13. Just started my first job in over a year after spending 6 months of the last 2 years sporadically bouncing in and out of psychiatric hospitals up and down the country and today was my first payday. This has given me what I needed right when I needed it, put beautifully. True inspiration. Respect mate!
