Believe

Some days impossible

Some days possible

I’m in and out of my energy

But I know this won’t be the death of me

Growing taller, becoming stronger

Weaving dreams into reality 

If it all was handed to me

I would learn nothing

The struggle is where I find my strength

When success strikes, gratitude will be born

I will wash away all the pain

But I’m a dream weaver

I’m a mountain climber

Destroying doubt has become a hobby

If you only opened your eye

Maybe you could see

What you could do, who you could be

And maybe then you would believe

You have an idea, but then you think, nah, that’s not possible for me. Only the lucky few are capable of achieving something like this. There’s no point in trying…

If you don’t even believe in your dream and don’t believe in yourself, how will you go on to achieve what you desire? It’s easy to get discouraged by competition, fear, the magnitude of the dream, anxiety, judgement, rejection, etc. I always think that talent and luck can be factors in accomplishing goals, but I also think that those who are persistent will inevitably break through the wall. What is this wall you speak of? Well, in simple terms, its the energy between you and your dream.

I remember a long time ago I was at a recruiters office for some military branch and they asked my friend and I if we thought leadership was something that could be learned or if it was something that someone just had within them. I think I recall saying that I believed that leaders were just born with that quality and I still believe that, but at the same time, I do think that anything can be learned.

For example, some people can just pick up an instrument and just play, while others it takes a long time to get good at it. That doesn’t mean that the person who isn’t a natural can’t ever become as good or better of a musician than the other person. The point I am trying to make here is that, we all may have ideas in our heads that excite our hearts, but we don’t even give a real chance because we don’t think it is possible. It’s only for the lucky few right? I call bullshit. If you can day dream about what you really want to do -Nike that shit. Just do it. Most likely you will suck at first. Keep the train on the tracks and eventually you will hit a wall. It will feel like the end of the world. Keep moving forward and that wall will give. It tends to get worse before it gets really good sometimes. Believe in yourself. Believe in your dream. You drink water and eat food to satisfy the needs of your body. What about your soul?
