Be Grateful

Be grateful….

Often times I feel that people, including myself, forget that we are blessed with so many great things in our life. A great family, great friends, or a great opportunity to succeed, these are just a couple aspects of our lives that we should look at and be grateful for.

The easy thing to do is look at all the things that try to tear us down on a daily basis. Now, when doing this, you may get sympathy at first. But after awhile feeling bad while then having others reminding you how bad you feel, begins to negatively effect the way you think. This is how a negative mindset is born which, in my opinion, is just sad.

I truly believe, that if someone wants to change their life for the better, they 100 percent can. But what troubles me the most is why people feel the need to simply waste their days dwelling over what they can’t control? Why they feel the need to act in manner, which doesn’t fit their personality, simply to just fit in? Both of these concern the hell out of me, but what is the most confusing is why individuals continue to sit back and watching others live their dreams when they themselves have the same opportunity to succeed? Although, it may seem cliche, you only get one life so make it count.

Be Like Water

"Be formless, shapeless like water. When you pour water into a cup, it becomes the cup. When you pour water into a bottle, it becomes the bottle. When you pour water into a teapot, it becomes the teapot. Water can flow and it can crash. Become like water my friend."

Although, Bruce Lee was describing water, the deeper meaning behind this quote is the comparison to humans. Strangely enough, when one can go outside their comfort zone to achieve something, it will be achieved. When a person puts their whole mind into achieving a dream, they will achieve that dream. The moment you begin to believe you can, you will.
