Why oh why, does it seem
that the more I ask for, the more I receive?
Sounds common sense, this correlation isn’t hard to find
if so, then why oh why, don’t we ask for more all the time?
Asking for more doesn’t cost, it’s just words, yet its potential is priceless
Putting your foot down, knowing your worth, a most powerful of devices
Bigger dreams, bigger bets
Bigger obstacles, bigger steps
Better ideas, better revelations
Better understanding, better communication
Faster mistakes, faster recoveries
Faster thinking, faster discoveries
Stronger will, stronger self-identity
Stronger purpose, stronger Serenity
I just recently realized that nothing is owed to me in life. You only get what you demand of life AND, just as importantly, then work towards it with equal fervor.
I didnt understand the momentum of things, that just because something bad happened it doesn’t mean you’re owed something good up next. That’s bullshit. Life is only as fair as you make it.
It can just as easily be unfair in your favor if you want it so.
You have to demand from the world that something good happens next for you, and give that thrust of will to have it be so. If you get complacent the world will trample all over you, or will at least leave you in your place with only the leftovers of those who demanded first dibs.
Perfectionism is just procrastination with a pretty mask on

What we don’t know can kill us. Or at least it can kill our chances of achieving our goals.
We often don’t realize that we are just one lesson away from getting there. There’s that one small thing we need to learn to turn everything around. To become professionals.
Sometimes it’s right under our noses, and sometimes it’s been pointed out by our peers yet we ignore it. It can’t be that important is what we say. That can’t be what’s holding me back. But it very well might be.
What’s the one lesson you haven’t learned yet? Look around, it’s much simpler than you think it is. Thank me later.
Finding out our own limits and vulnerabilities is a powerful tool. Tiptoeing the edge of that cliff and still surviving.
It scares the shit out of you. And even though others might not see it, it bursts your confidence bubble a bit because now you have no doubts about where your powers end.
But it more than makes up for it with the alleviating realization that EVERYONE goes through it. Finding that it is only by creeping to that edge that we can truly progress.
Makes success seem so much more blue collar, and that’s a GREAT realization.
Communication is a faceoff of realities. Every conversation or every argument is a tango of two worldviews.
Since perception is reality then whoever believes most in their reality is who will dominate a conversation and impose their reality on the other person.
Believe in your reality (trust me it is YOURS and yours only) and you’ll find that you will get everything you want in life. This obviously doesn’t make you too likeable of a person. Exciting maybe. But not always likeable.
Of course, those who have mastered the artform can impose their reality and do it in a way in which the other person welcomes this new point of view, they are both right and likeable. You can find these people in corner offices across the country.
