The most important thing to take away from the lost, is the lesson.
A little focus, determination, trials, and tribulations can take you a long way.
Have you ever been so nice to people only for those same people to turn around and treat you like shit? When you do all you can for someone and in return you get criticized for it? Well it has happen to me too, more than once. You know, I tell myself that I’m a nice person and even when someone is mean to me I’m still going to be nice back. I tell myself that I will not treat someone how they treated me, because two wrongs don’t make a right. But to be honest it takes so a lot out of me to not snap, it takes a lot for me to not want to harm them. You see, I realize you have to love people for the good, the bad, and the ugly. At the end of the day you must love them, but at times I get fed up with people. I get fed up because I get tired of being name called when I made one simple mistake, get fed up with people not realizing that no one is perfect, and that we all makes mistakes. And I get fed up with the reality that no matter what you do, how nice you are, and what you will become in the future people are always going to judge you for it no matter what. I would be lying if I said it’s easy to face it because it’s not, it’s really hard as hell to forgive someone who has hurt you. But that doesn’t mean you shouldn’t try. So I say start, start forgiving those who have hurt you because many more people are going to hurt you. I hate to say it but it will happen. But at least now you can start preparing yourself, so that you can make peace in your heart.
Many people want to achieve special things in life. Many people want to be a successful business person, many people want to better the world, and many people want to know their purpose in life. But the true question is, what makes you different? What separates you from everybody else? You see, you aren’t the only one who wants to better the world, you aren’t the only one who wants to better yourself and your family, and you aren’t the only one who wants to know their purpose. So what makes you different? Is it because you are more hard working, better listener, better speaker, more consistent, or more patient? You see, when you are on the battlefield for survival and you want a way out, you have to think outside the box. You have to do something that no one else is doing, you have to think different, work different, and move different. Your moves can’t be the same as someone else and you can’t do the same old thing over again. I believe we are all different in our own ways but it’s up to us to figure out how. How are we different from others, how do our gifts contribute to our purpose? I like to believe that we all have special things that we do everyday that come natural to us, things that are a gift from GOD that we can use to help us find our purpose, things that can help us accomplish our goals, and things that can help us stand out from the crowd around us. It’s just up to us to figure out what is that special thing that separates us from everyone else and how can we use it in our lives.
What’s the plan for you to be able to reach your dreams.
You are your greatest investment, you are your greatest asset. What you do everyday determines where you will be at in the future.
Starting off I want to tell you to not GIVE A DAMN about what someone says about you. You see people are going to disagree with things that they don’t really understand, they are going to judge people who they don’t really know much about, and they are going to talk about you no matter what you do. Now yes, you could scream, you could fight, and you could tell them how they aren’t going to be shit back. But guess what it only slows down your progress and shows them that you care about what they have to say, causing for them to constantly keep doing it. You see I feel like you have to not give a damn about what people say about you, because people are going to find something to say about you whether you are doing good or bad, but as long as you don’t give a damn about what they have to say then you won’t become affected by them. So #1 DON’T GIVE A DAMN ABOUT WHAT PEOPLE SAY ABOUT YOU, #2 Keep going, trust me your dreams are on the way, and #3 as soon as you start not GIVING A DAMN about what people say about you , then you’ll start achieving things you have always wanted to achieve.
“Don’t care what people say. Don’t give a damn about their laws.”-Edith Piaf
We are all different people, who move in different ways, who act a certain way, who live a certain way, and who dream certain things. You see my time in the navy has brought me around so many people from so many different backgrounds. You see the navy has taught me many things about people and the reason most of them act the way they do. I have learned why people are rude to others, I have learned why people have so much respect for people even when that person doesn’t respect them, and I have learned why we do the things we do. It mainly has something to do with how we grew up. You see even though we are young the things that we go through, learn from, and grow from when we are young stays with us as we get older. Turning us into the person we are today. You see we allow our past to shape us, break us, and make us into the person we become. But I feel like we can also learn from the present, we can also learn from the things we are currently doing so that we can perfect the things we will do in the future. You see it’s all about perfecting you, it’s all about the new you that’s to come in the future. So I say this, try to connect with different people, because you never know if you might have something in common with them.
