How do we become great?
Today I had a thought and it led me to write this:
"When you set your mind to "I CAN", No mountain is too high, no river is too wide that you can't masterfully conquer them. When you set your mind to "I CAN'T", No amount of training and preparation will help you succeed. When you conquer your own spirit before you even try...you will fail. When you give yourself permission to succeed, and tell yourself you CAN...you are halfway there. It doesn't remove the need for work and follow through, but it makes all things possible. This year I CAN!!!"
This has been a year of freedom and embracing the present for me. I want to be present in my own life. I want to come off conqueror. I want to be the master of myself and my own accomplishments and future. I am taking the reigns. For too long I have conquered my own spirit with fear, doubt and disbelief in what I am capable of. But I am great! I CAN! This year...not only CAN I...but I WILL! I AM! This is the present, there is only one present. I spent yesterday and there is no guarantee of tomorrow. I am embracing my life....with all the good, the bad, the ups, the downs, the trials and the joys. This is my life! It is beautiful!
Make it a great day! Only YOU can!
