Achieving Your Goals, One Step at A Time
Updated: Aug 18, 2019
Everyone in the world wants something. Whether it’s love, money, or whatever your heart desires, everyone wants something, everyone has dreams. My goals are huge and I wouldn’t have them any other way. I’ll share them in time, but for right now this article is about you.
Humans naturally crave things. It’s what makes us the most dominate species on the planet. Spiritual people might call it ego, but like everything in life there must be balance. You need a healthy ego to match self-less spirituality. Even monks wear nice robes, design intricate buildings, and carve exquisite statues. A desire to achieve something more. Most of us have endless wants and desires.
Plans make goals real. What makes life real is action.
You can think all day about eating a cookie. Until you take the action to make that cookie in your space and time, it will remain a thought. All goals and dreams are possible if you are willing to take action. Massive action. The bigger the goal, the more work you’ll need to commit to obtain it. For instance, if you want to be a millionaire you have to put in a lot of work. If you want to be a billionaire, you have to put in lot more work. Everything has a price, whether you believe it or not.
If you think starting a blog is a simple task, you best think again. Between a full-time job, a family with constant issues, and a bleeding heart...it takes a lot of commitment. I put work into everything I do and every action I take. I put work into fitness, I put work into reading, researching, and this blog. You don’t have to be extreme as me, but I would recommend you get a schedule and a plan for any goals you wish to obtain. I try to plan everything but life does happen and things change often. You adjust and get right back on track.
I want to raise “common knowledge” to “standard knowledge”
My one and only goal in life is to help people. My goal is to touch a billion lives and to help a billion people. How? I want to raise “common knowledge” to “standard knowledge”. We’re blessed to live in the informational age but there’s a ton of information out there; you need to be careful with what you put in your mind. Cat videos are cool, but learning information that can benefit you in the future and benefit your family in the future is cooler. I want to encourage others to use their world to better themselves, encouraging growth and change every day.
We are energy, we are built of atoms, and we vibrate. You can vibrate on any level that you choose, but vibrating at a higher level is ideal. We have the choice to better ourselves, and you best believe that everything in your reality is your fault. I genuinely believe that no matter what has happen to you, you have the choice to respond responsibly or not.
My life has been filled with negativity and pain. The abuse I endured from my father lasted from the time I was 3 to 15 years old before I went to police to report him. When I was 17, I was shot during a robbery by a local drug abuser; he murdered my grandmother. How I responded to these situations after the fact was my choice. I wish I could tell you that I’ve always had the mentality that I do now, but that’s honestly not the case.
It took me years to develop into the person that I am now. But love triumphs all. I’ve been arrested because of bad friends. I’ve pretty much been done dirty by everyone I’ve ever gotten close in my life until now, and that has not stopped me. Nothing has stopped me from graduating top of my class and getting straight A’s. Despite my mother being on drugs and making life miserable; stealing from me, fighting me, waking me up in the middle of the night on school nights. It didn't stop me from achieving scholarships, grants, and going to college tuition-free. It is all about the mindset my dears. You have to be strong because life is not fair and anything can happen.
Let’s Get Started
Your goals are your goals. No matter what, and you can accomplish anything you put your mind to. So, you have a goal. Write it down, make a plan, and excute. Only you are control what you do; not what happens to you! Don’t react to life, respond. You’re amazing, anything you put your mind to, you can accomplish. I failed 3rd grade but I was a math & science nerd! Do not let others tell you what’s possible. I’m currently working for a billionaire. Here’s my point, “you are only limited by your imagination”. If I can go through all of this and do it, so can you. My goal is to only work for myself, and I’ll tell you, I will reach that goal. Dream your dream, write your clearly defined goals down, and take massive action to make it happen. Everything is possible, all you have to do is believe!
