Have you been dreaming the same dream for years, but just haven’t been able to make any progress towards it?
Do you feel like you’re constantly being a cheerleader for everyone else and don’t have much to cheer about for yourself?
Are you stuck… in a job you hate… around people you can’t stand… in a situation that’s sucking the life out of you?
Well, my dear, you’re not alone. And the good news is that you can change it. All of it. Right now.
It’s like you’re lookin’ through a telescope you see where you gon’ be
Growin’ getting better you’re not the person they see
Can’t be mad at the things you’ve been through, ‘cuz they built yo’ muscle
Now you’re stronger than you’ve ever been, they can’t stop yo’ hustle…
- Mary Mary | “Go Get It”
When I first heard this song by dynamic Gospel music duo Mary Mary, I couldn’t help but wanna groove.
Problem is I can’t dance so that was out (I have no rhythm).
So being the writer that I am, I decided to do one of the things I do best… write. With the intent to encourage and inspire YOU.
Get comfortable and keep readin’.
Danger Will Robinson! If you keep doing the same things you’ll keep getting the same result… feeling stuck… hating the people you’re around… always a cheerleader, never the popular jock.
Don’t get me wrong. I’m not saying you aren’t working hard and that you aren’t putting in any effort at all. I’m just saying you have to be willing to do more.
You can’t say you want something and not do what it takes to get it. If that’s you’re M.O. then it tells me that you really don’t want it.
Gary Vaynerchuk has a great book called Crush It!: Why NOW Is the Time to Cash In on Your Passion. In it, he talks about how when you are in the pursuit of a dream you have to be willing to do whatever it takes. You should do yourself a huge favor and read it. You won’t be able to remain the same once you do.
I’m afraid is not an excuse. You do it anyway.
I don’t know how is not an excuse.
You find a way.
I don’t have enough money is not an excuse. You hustle hard with what you’ve got.
Waiting for the perfect time is not an excuse.
You do your due diligence, ACT then correct as you go.
Let me tell you something… I believe in you.
How can I possibly do that when it’s very likely I don’t even know you?
I can do it because I understand human potential.
I understand that for most of our lives we never tap the fullness of the potential that’s inside of us.
I can do it because I believe the God I serve is a great God who has placed greatness on the inside of you.
It’s up to you to stop waiting… for the perfect time… the perfect partner to help you… the perfect whatever!
It’s nonsense! Believe in YOURSELF. If that doesn’t move you enough, believe in MY belief in you. It’s a great place to start.
Learn what you need to learn. Go where you need to go. Leave your 9-to-5 and go work late on YOUR dream if you have to (you won’t have to forever if you push now).
STOP wasting time wishing and hoping without DOING.
There’s no reward for ideas without ACTION. IDEAS + ACTION = PROGRESS
Read the last verse of the song and go be great! If you are already in pursuit of your dreams then go be great-ER. Share your brilliance with the world… we
need it. MAKE Life Happen! I know you can!
You were made to live a good life and that’s what I believe
So hit the floor say a prayer start working you gotta do something
It’s alright to crawl before you walk, It’s alright to walk before you run
But if you wanna get what you never got gotta do something that you never done.
- Mary Mary | “Go Get It”
Now speak your greatness into the atmosphere and tell me (use comments below) what you’re going to do TODAY to Go Get It. What ACTION are you going to take? And then share this with someone else who needs a push!
Oh, how could I forget… go check out the song!!! Mary Mary – Go Get It
