Somewhere early along the course of our path, we’ve all been subject to the “traditional motivational speech” at the dinner table; stating that, “life is a race!” Now seasoned in our own experiences, its imperative to re-evaluate this form of autosuggested fear. At times the analogy can make its point but often it gets misconstrued into thinking everyone else is in direct competition with our personal goals and spirit filled intentions. Truth is there’s more than enough room in this world to be successfully abundant and prosperous But first to reach the goal, we must get over the “fear of fighting the world that evolves around us,” to overcoming the true enemy from within our on state of idealistic ways. Once we course correct our way of thinking, we can move freely without the clutter and entrapment of manifested fears. “Life is a race?” not really because the true purpose of life is to be who you were created to be. In other words, finding your purpose and to do that, you must accomplish two task. First, avoid the many distractions created or shared. Secondly listen to that small voice of valor and acknowledge the greatness within you. Lastly, to answer the question, there’s no “finish line” for the goodness we do. Establish your legacy now by racing to help others, instead of a trophy shelved high and doomed for dust. In this acknowledgement, I promise you your kindness will last for eternity.
You don’t need motivation from an outside source to get you to move. Is it helpful? Of course but that depends on the depth of your situation. Understand that true motivation starts with first conquering that small voice from within. In this you’ve accessed the reticular activating system of your mind, so now’s the time; get up and get moving! For that matter you don’t even need an incentive or stern push. Truthfully you don’t really need a drink, unless it’s one of those “Starbucks cup of joy” my wife just gotta have in her daily routine; apparently it’s a heavenly sip of sunshine on the lips. All you truly need to accomplish your goals, achieve your wildest dreams and be an asset in this world is, to just shut up! Close your fear based opinions, close your misguided views of the world and for goodness sake, close your ears to the relentless rhetoric of others unsatisfied with their lives. Invoke your unconditional will to do just that, as opposed to drifting aimlessly, thinking this world has something to offer. Don’t get me wrong, there’s much offered but not if your mindset isn’t conditioned for the blessings. In other words it’s difficult to receive if you’re trying to take. Reciprocity is the only way. Instead, accept that you are the offering in life for others in need! Here’s what I’m saying, it’s not hard to think when your surroundings are quiet. If you want to move, get up and do it! Dance, play in the rain, raise your hands and turn in circles as you did as a child. Write a song if you’d like, paint, finish that poem, maybe take a chance with that old idea or try asking for forgiveness and accept the closure. Just make the decision to, “For no other reason, but the fact you have breath in your body,”to get up and prove the negatives wrong! Why because you can, no excuses! You can and you will! Get up and acknowledge your abundance, you were wonderfully created and no one can stop you but yourself. Get up and increase your bank account, forgive a spouse, be a true friend and be a blessing to others. Silence the excuses and just be “that,” in which you want others to be to you. Shhh, do not tell anyone, just get up and do it!
