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.
Look at what you have now, rather then what you don’t have.
Some of you might not like what I have to say, but I believe it’s something that’s needs to be said. The true reason why most of you are stuck where you are or why you haven’t made any progress towards your goals, is because you’re too busy looking back at the past rather then looking at the present. You see so many of you have scars that will never be healed, have mountains that you will never climb, and have voices that will never be heard all because you are too busy focusing on the past. All because you can’t forgive the person who hurt you, all because you can’t go after something that you failed at before, all because you sit there and say how you want a better life but you’re not doing shit to get it. Like it’s time to wake up, it’s time to become stronger then you were before, and it’s time you start realizing that you were placed on this earth for a fucking reason and that’s to make a change, to cause a movement, and to become something so great, so beautiful that everything that happened in the past was worth it in the end. But it starts with you it always has and it always will and what you do with it is up to you.

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.

I have learned that sometimes in life you have to have some alone time. Could be when you are having a bad day and every little thing gets to you, could be when you have spent so much time around family and friends and you want to just break away for a bit, and finally could simply just be because you want to have some me time. I know for me I enjoy being alone at times since most of my great ideas actually comes from me being alone. That’s one reason why my website came into play just by me being alone with my thoughts. I also enjoy the feeling of not having to worry about anyone else in that moment cause it’s just you. So I say yes spend time with family and friends, but also spend time with yourself, enjoy your own company, because being alone to me is where the best ideas come from.
