Greatness

This is your world.

It’s full of potential, pleasure, love, glory, beauty and bliss that can’t be comprehended. It even surprises you with heartbreak and misfortunes, so you can experience the full range of your explosive emotions. This happens, so when you live through the good things, they’re that much sweeter. Even better, nothing great comes easily. Wouldn’t life be hopelessly boring if so? You have thrilling hurdles to overcome at every corner in order to achieve greatness in this life.

Everyone’s greatness is different.

The very steps you took to walk to class, work, or home today – are the very steps that someone out there is trying to gain back. Stop taking each step for granted.

The very breath you just took, was someones last. Stop taking each breath of air for granted.

The very eye contact you made with a stranger, is the eye contact that some individual can’t make. Smile next time at that person, and stop taking each glance for granted.

The very voice you have – use it. Say whats on your mind, speak up when you feel its necessary, or just yell out all your frustrations, because someone out there can’t even use their voice to tell someone “I love you”.

Not saying you have to do all this, but I bet if you made a little change to something you didn’t realize you were doing, you’re days may seem a bit brighter.

You’ll be shocked one day, because you’re going to look at yourself, your life, and your ways, and you’re going to see that your every idiosyncrasy, quirk, and so-called “faults”, were among your greatest assets. This won’t happen over night; you’ll meet people who constantly point out the bad than compliment the goods, you’ll wake up on certain days not feeling “complete”, and lets face it – we’re all humans, we’re not perfect, and you bet your ass that every single one of us has more than one imperfection. Yea, so that means the really hot men and women on Instagram have them too.

Let this sink in…
In case you haven’t caught on…

You are not where you now think you are.

You are not what you now think you are.

You are not even who you now think you are.

Because even to think, in spite of its fantastic power to manifest, is to limit.

The light is always green; go for it, never quit, and keep going. The light may turn yellow sometimes, to give yourself a break – but you’re the sole decision maker whether that light turns red or not… Don’t let it.

Kick ass; you already qualify for everything, so whats stopping you?

P.S. – Don’t forget to always pay it forward! I am a true believer that if you do this on a daily basis, your well-being will be enlightened. But do not expect something in return – expectations can be deadly. I promise you, your heart will feel fuller when doing nice things, just because.

P.S.S. – I’m reminding you that you’re so MUCH MORE attractive when you’re smiling. So smile ALOT 🙂
