Over the years i wasted most of my time trying to fit in where I’m not wanted, trying to be the person that I’m not just so I can impress the people around me. By so doing I made my own recipe of failure in most of my circumstances, hence I started thinking that I’m a failure, feeding on fear instead of faith. This was all because most of my goals were to impress somebody! I remember five years ago when I decided to follow my own gut and goals, this was far the most toughest decision that I turned into a habit, to always follow my own gut.
I want you to know that you can never enjoy the best side of your life, when most of your life what you are doing is working to fulfill other people’s goals, doing some certain things that you know they are wrong but you keep doing them because you fear that if you don’t your friends will leave you. No no no, this is your life not theirs, the decision is yours not theirs, have you ever asked yourself why you always think that you are doing the wrong thing, have you ever taken time to write down what you want most in your life. The quality of you life can only be seen when you living happily out of your own decisions. Do you want to be counted wise in this life, to build your own reputation for wisdom, here’s what I dare you to do, live well, live wisely, live humbly, follow your own gut and become what God created, a beautiful creation that can triumph in any situation. Its the way you live not the way you talk that counts.
If you know that the people in your circle are taking the best out of you, then you need to make your circle smaller, and decide who you are going to listen to. We all become who we spend most our time with. Apple trees don’t bear strawberries, do they ? Raspberry bushes don’t bear apples, do they ? You are not going to dip into a polluted mud and get a cup of clear, cool water, are you ? Know who you need most in your life, and know those who are poisoning your life. Let your relationship with God, take you to the right friends, allow him to guide you, feed you with his wisdom, understanding and knowledge, cause at the end of the day, he is all you got ! I want you to remember that the only person you have to compete with in life, is the person yous see in the mirror every time, so stop competing with the people around you. You can develop a healthy robust community that lives right today and enjoy its results only if you do the hard work of choosing the right friends, and getting along with each other, treating the same people around you with dignity and honor, not only must you do this to your friends, but to your enemies to and the rest of the community.
I have decided to change the community, and I want generations to come to live a much more better one than the one we living today.
