Do you really believe that you can do more, be more and have more? If you do that is great, but if you don't that is not so great. Too many individuals believe he or she could never achieve their goals and dreams, so they settle. They settle for less than what they were created to do. And that is not just a disservice for them, but it is also a disservice to the lives of others.
We only live one life here on earth, so why live it in mediocrity? And I consider living in mediocrity as having a burning desire to live a better life, but settling for what life has presented to you. Truth be told if many of us really focused on all of the adversity against us, we would never expect more. But no matter what you have been through or are going through you should expect to do greater things.
Just because life may have dealt you some bad blows does not mean that you can't achieve your goals and dreams. Refuse to let the past hold your future hostage. Refuse to let what happened yesterday determine what happens tomorrow. And refuse to have the mindset that your best days are behind you.
It is a sad thing to me when an individual has accepted the mindset that he or she will never be able to do it. And that is whatever their definition of it is. Their definition of it may be starting a business, going back to school, changing the world, or just simply living a fulfilled and joyful life. I hear so many people say "I can't do it." And their reasoning is usually connected to what he or she believes about their self, what someone else has said, or because of something that has happened in the past. But it doesn't matter who said you can't do it, but what matters is that God knows you can do it.
God would never put anything on your heart to do, that you were not already equipped to achieve. So why not move forward with the expectation that you can do it, and that you will do it. And you must also develop the mindset that not achieving what you desire to achieve is not an option.
Believe you were created to do amazing things, accept the past and embrace the future. Now what is your next step to live the life you were born to live? Define your goals and dreams, and step into your greatness like never before. Because you can do it.
