~ Today’s Inspired Thought ~

 

I am so so afraid of standing still. I am so afraid of finding myself in the same unsatisfied and unaccomplished place that I feel I am in right now. I don’t want to be in this place next year!

 

“Be not afraid of moving slowly; be afraid of standing still.” is a lifesaver. There are days where I would lose motivation and find myself at a “plateau”. These words have helped empower me to continue moving forward at my own pace. Although my pace is slow due to inconvenient circumstances; each day that I push forward only pushes me one day closer to my goal and so I refuse to stand still.

 

When you don’t hear those words above enough one tends to forget such common sense. The more I see those words, the more the meaning starts to sink in and turns from inspired thought to inspired action.

Reading that success is the sum of small efforts repeated day in and day out has given me so much RELIEF! I feel better to think that I am on the right track moving at the pace that I am in. I do feel that I need to pick up the pace though because my level of urgency has diminished a bit due to emotional adversity. Coming to better understand that the small steps that I am taking will sum up to the success I wish to reach has fueled my passion to achieve!

 

I’ve come to realize with such clearer understanding that mistakes are not meant to make you feel inadequate and unworthy of success.

Mistakes are not opportunities for you to quit.

Mistakes are opportunities for growth and improvement.

In the past, when I made a mistake I would be so quick to respond with harsh words to myself. I didn’t need anyone to discourage me because I was my own worst critic! I got in the way of my own success with such a negative and uninspiring attitude.

It’s time to let go of the thoughts that do not make me strong.

With practice all of these inspiring words will become normal thoughts and normal actions. This is what I aspire to achieve.

At 2am this morning I finally took a deep breath.
Before that I was so lost in thought, subconciously meditating on my purpose, that I may have developed a potential migraine I assume due to the fact that I have been holding my breath most of the time.. of course the fact that I am still awake at 2am should also be considered.

As I sorted through my elementary, high school and college achievements and memories. I discovered random memories that was stored in organized chaos; stuffed in binders and faded folders which have worn out and collected dust under my bed throughout my 13 years in my “new” home. My pack rack treasures stirred a well of mixed emotions…a nostalgic history of better days I lived before I stepped into the real world. Certificates of Good Conduct, Honor Roll, A+ on my High School Paper, professional uncertainty in college, incomplete applications to graduate school….wow. I have experienced a rollercoaster ride of self-reprimanded mistakes and lesson learned discoveries since those days.

My most prized possession is my poems especially one I’ve made in my naive days as a High School student.

One must always keep a firm leash on life
Prepare
Form a opportunity
Call your power
Learn to make a change
You will
Simply do what is good
You won’t lose

Who am I?
A whole new legend
Smart
Successful
Trusted
In the end
Life is really cool.

“Life is really cool” …..

I sit here laughing inside like a parent might simply laugh and slowly shake her head with affection and unpoken support; keeping her response to herself….a response that may hurt such a positive attitude.

Those words were so easier said then done 11 years ago compared to where I am now.

But now the teenager I once was has inspired the adult I am now. The adult who slipped and fell on the same puddle of mistakes year after year but got back up again and now finally sees the truth in my once “naive” vision. Words that now stir an energy inside of me and influenced a shift.

A shift, like how the planets align, a shift of the spirit of my past, the spirit of my present and the spirit of my future coming together in alignment. They no longer exist as separate entities. They are all one. My past trials and tribulations have shaped my present and my present trials and tribulations clearly shapes a promising future. A future that starts today as I will shape a firm leash on life because I AM preparing and forming an opportunity. I have been calling my power. I have been learning how to make a change and so I. Will. It is an intention.

This past year I have placed my steps in alignment with God to do only the good that He asks of me and as long as I stay in consistent alignment, I truly believe that I cannot lose.

I AM a whole new legend. One who IS smart, who IS and WILL be successful and who CAN be trusted. I intend to live up to those words. To my vision.

“The best way to find yourself is to lose yourself in the service of others.” -Mahatma Gandhi
I have one life to live.
One life to live in a world with so much boundaries.
So much rules on how to live it.

I have a vision of achievements I wish to accomplish that does not fit within a 9-5 profession. A vision that can be achieved with some freedom of measured time.

A vision that is greater than my desire to make a profit for materialistic pleasures. Pleasures we could live without if never invented.

You know you are on the road to success if you would do your job & not be paid for it. -Oprah

I am fortunate to have parents who are supporting me as I undergo studies in a career of passion vs a career of social status quo.

With one life to live, I deserve to live a life on my terms.

So its official. I understand who I am now….

As of March 24th 2012: Going forward I will call myself a Professional Human Being; a profession that is not to foreign to the few who know of such a inspiring thought.

A professional who is lives and breathes his/her passion that is not bound in the measured time of a 9 to 5 profession. A professional who lives and breath his/her multifarious talents. A person who LIVES……every second of every day excites him/her because he/she makes a living out of what his/her passions (not just one passion! but ALL his/her passions)….That is who I am now.

A professional human being living life with GOD and philosophy leading my steps.

I’ve got a great ambition to die of exhaustion rather than boredom.
-Angus Grossart Pls

There is so much to do in ths world. TOO MUCH to do in this world. TOO MUCH too miss out on with one life to live and so I do have a great ambition to live life as a professional human being.

A profession greater than all professions. A profession of freedom to live as a poet, writer, musician, artist, teacher, motivator all in one with access to a world greater than my minute circle of life in this town of Massachusetts. A vision that I have the opportunity to accomplish.

And so its Official; In the end Life can be really “cool” after all.
