Here’s a little reality check for all those who’ve been ego-tripping lately… There’s more to life & more to the world than you.
When you’re really pushing to achieve something the negative forces will always try to deter you. This is especially true during our bleakest and most difficult times. You have to be steadfast and hold on to your faith. It isn’t easy. But it’s better coming out of the fire having done the right thing instead of the wrong thing.
The tried & true methods are not always the best ways to approach problems. Sometimes you have to step outside of the place where you feel most comfortable in order to move forward. Looking towards new methods you are not accustomed to may be the way to go. Take the risk – you never know.
There’s something to be said about someone who is so selfless and giving of themselves to other things and people. There’s also something to be said about someone who is so selfless and giving that they neglect themselves. You’ve got to find the balance between everything, everyone else, and you. Otherwise, this kind of imbalance can lead to self-inflicted burn out (amongst so many other things).
Doesn’t seem to be many of us around who are interested in or care to really communicate anymore. So much is misunderstood, misconstrued, and taken out or put in the wrong context. If we thought before we spoke (or wrote), did our research, went straight to the source instead of making assumptions and passing judgment, and asked the right people the right questions – so much bullshit would be eliminated.
You may be the best at what you do. Amazingly gifted and talented. But none of that matters if you aren’t using what you’ve been blessed with to inspire, motivate, nurture, guide, and assist those coming up with or behind you. It’s about giving back what you’ve been so fortunate with. Is there anything worse than a truly talented person who’s not only boastful, arrogant and egotistical but selfish too?
People will always have shit to say. It’s part of the human makeup. Unfortunately, the things people say tend to be more on the illogical, biased, ignorant, or negative side. But when there’s a problem or an issue that needs to be addressed, if you’re not bringing anything relevant or constructive to the table – do everyone else a favor & shut the fuck up!
