Do you fully understand this fact? Even as I began the introduction to my podcast today and mentioned, "As long as there is breath there is hope" it dawned on me how often people will even try to dispute this fact in your life and mine! DO NOT LISTEN! DO NOT ACCEPT IT!
It is so important that you take an active approach to protecting your mind, heart and soul against this negative influence.
How many people have told you that your dreams are stupid and not worth following? We've all had it happen in our lives IF we have striven to better our lives in any way.
I really still don't understand it completely but I do know that it happens. I think a major reason it happens is that so many of those around us have long ago given up on their dreams and they do not want us to pursue ours - but we MUST!
Last night I was listening to a CD for some training with a company that I have joined up with for an additional stream of income (check with me if you'd like to know more) and one of the gentlemen was talking about a difficult time in his life when he was out of work, his house was in foreclosure and the bill collectors were calling daily. Hey, I've been there, too and it's no fun!
One particular collector was hard-nosed and rude (I've run into a few of these as well!) and seemed to do all she could to belittle this man while he was down.
***NOTE: Negativity will ALWAYS do that! Negativity will NEVER attempt to encourage you or build you up - negativity will do all it can to CRUSH you!**
One thing that this collector said upon hearing his children in the background told him that he must not love his children or else he'd be paying his bills. Can you believe that?
Upon finding out he didn't have a job she asked him what he was doing and he told her he had found an opportunity and he was working on his dreams. Her response (NEGATIVITY'S response)? "You need to forget your dreams and step into reality!"
Listen, NEGATIVITY will strike you to the core and, again, try to crush you and bring you to your knees! NEGATIVITY wants you to QUIT and SURRENDER!
Will you? Will you quit? Will you surrender? Or, will you FIGHT for YOUR dreams!
NEVER GIVE UP!
NEVER GIVE IN!
I cannot emphasize this enough! We must wake up and realize that it is up to US and that we are responsible for our DREAMS!
We are in the last quarter of the year (Oct/Nov/Dec) and this is our "2 minute drill" in the last quarter of "the game".
NOW is not the time to cower down and become weak.
NOW IS THE TIME TO STAND POWERFULLY AND POSITIVELY AND KEEP MOVING TOWARD YOUR GOALS!
I'm here to help in any way that I can but, always remember that YOU CAN DO THIS!
And, all along the way remember to...
"Make it an AWESOME day! (Who else is going to do it for you?)"
