Determination

Here’s the thing about being human: you are given a lot of crutches in life, but they are double edged swords. They make you feel better for a while, but you’ve got to give up your power…
Put the blame on someone else or something else…

Fate, some god, the economy, other people, society, or your parents…

Yeah…they make you feel better…

It is easy to call talented those who worked harder than you in order to be better than you…

It is easy to sit on your couch and wait for your soulmate to find you… Because that’s what all the fairytales told you it’s going to happen.

It’s easy to put the blame somewhere else, and forever give up on the responsibility to change yourself for the better…

But you know what’s not easy?

To realize that you’re your own master…

The captain of your fate.

The one and only person who is ever going to give you what you want.

But you’ve got to cut the crap. You’ve got to stop believing in fairytales…

You’ve got to face reality…

This is your life, and you only get one, and it in your power to make it be anything you want.

You only have to reach within for the stamina to do so.

Few people are ever capable of such a level of commitment.

Because it is not easy…

Don’t give up your power.

Don’t be lazy.

Don’t give up on yourself.

Fight on.

No matter what.

You can do what you want and be anything you want.

You just have to be determined to achieve what you want, no matter what.

    Love this! Another post that really resonates with where I am at right now! Keep up the great work 🙂

  3. Agreed. It serves no one to spend your life playing the victim.

  4. I agree, particularly in terms of stepping up to responsibility. Such an action is the real step to adulthood.
    I also find merit in the vulnerable asking for and acceptance of help. When we need others or they us, we form connections -a higher level of friendship.
