“Stay focused, go after your dreams and keep moving toward your goals.”LL Cool J
Last night, Gabriella and I drove to ATL to go see Jon Bellion in concert. It was incredible! And totally worth it. But I’m definitely feeling the late night today. (What an old man). I feel reluctant to do anything today. All I want to do is cancel band practice, give up on all my habits, ignore work and Netflix and chill. But I’m not going to. I may be just going through the motions today, but I’m still going to do what I need to do, what my past self has set out todo. Because giving into reluctance and laziness is a habit, just like any other habit.
Note: I’m not suggesting to sacrifice your health and rest for accomplishment or work. Rest is equally important as work. Get the rest you need. But don’t let reluctance or short term decisions keep you from your dreams.
Sometimes, dreams die because we let them — fear and inaction, sidelining them for immediate problems and needs, or even by choice (for other dreams).
Most dreams die because of inconsistency.
We give up in the moment — for a brief symptom relief.
To continue forward, despite all the reasons and nonsense that gets in the way, puts you in a league where most people don’t reach.
Do you really want to be another person in a sea of people who let their dreams slide because they were inconsistent and slacked off when they should have been doubling down?
I know I don’t.
STAY BOLD, Keep Pursuing,
