As we've taken up this new adventure over the past few months, we start to learn a lot about ourselves and the correlation this new hobby has with life... "stay in the moment, move forward, and constantly have a sure footing, while reaching as far as you're willing to test yourself" Even then, there are moments when you just have to say fuck it and leap.
As simple as it may seem, this type of truth burns off dead wood. May it be the people that are holding you down or that vice/habit you most certainly need to shake that is doing the same! Continuously grow, continuously grind and value what's truly worth it. We all deep down inside know "who is who and what is what" So why do we put ourselves in those positions of needing expectance from the wrong people?
Don't be afraid to move forward, or as ridiculous as it seems in this day and age. Unfollow or be unfollowed, or blocking someone etc, or just removing someone from your life because you have your own opinions, beliefs and goals. Stay positive and focused on reaching your potential.
Most will complain about situations, people etc. What they don't seem to realize is, If you choose to swim in certain rivers, you can't complain when you get poisoned. If the table is tilted and the game is rigged, push away from the table and walk away. Allow the players still there to do just that. Play each other and negatively feed off each, while you work on bettering yourself on a daily basis and continue to better the people that matter around you. This, I cant emphasize enough!
Put it this way. Its the moments when you are completely alone with yourself and your thoughts that will give you the true answers. Am I happy with myself and this game I'm playing with the wrong crowd? You won't need a second opinion I promise you.
There's safety in numbers so sheep will stay with sheep. Remember every single thing we see in this world: cars, shoes, cameras, paper plates whatever. Was created by someone that had a goal and ignored the pack mentality. Stayed in the moment, moved forward, and constantly had a sure footing. While reaching as far as they were willing to test themselves, and when it was needed they doubled the fuck down...
