Where there is a will there is a way to have it all.

Sometimes we forget to swim up and allow ourselves to sink to the bottom.
Sometimes we forget to swim up and allow ourselves to sink to the bottom.

Just keep swimming! Just keep swimming!

What happens when life gives you lemons?

I know a lot of us go through hard times and life can be hard for all of us. I want to show you a few examples of when you can't let life get you down and how to keep moving forward. We all hit road block in this journey we are all on. I have encountered people making excuses for things not happening in their life. The only one who can make a change for you is you. You have to change from the inside out. Keep your head above the water and keep moving forward. We watched Finding Dory last night and they would bring up the song "keep on swimming." I know it's a movie but it hold truth to it. We are all in this ocean of life and must always keep swimming.

Stop with the excuses

I notice a lot of you out there make excuses. You give up to soon and just let life push you over and call it a day. You have to stop with your excuses in life for things that you want to see in it. Believe in yourself to make what you want in your life happen and be there. If you need to say it aloud do so! This will put that thought into action. Ask and you shall receive. What triggered this article? Well I was on Facebook the other day and came across a kid playing a drum set made of pots and pans. I said to myself "now there is someone who let nothing stop them having what they wanted in their life!" And on top of that this was a kid that looked like he as around 8 years old. And he was really good too! So I want you to do the same. You have to get your mind right and focus.

Guy drumming on pots and pans!

This guy is just using buckets to make his music!

Life is too short!

Look life is too short for you to be waiting for things to happen in your life. We are only here for a very short amount of time. What you do with that time is your choice. Not anyone else's choice but yours. I hope you realize this that everyday is an opportunity to have what we want out of life. Just looking at these drummers using pots and pans to make their music. They didn't let anything get in their way of life to getting what they want! So now look at your situation and apply this same way of thinking to achieve your dreams. Like I keep saying "if you want something bad enough you will find a way to get it in your life!" And it's not just pots and pan drummers I want you to look at. I want you to go out in life and bust your ass for the things you want to see happen. Learn that you have to dig deep inside and make it happen.

Another example of what not to do.

I had an ex who claimed they couldn't do their sewing and make dresses and this and that. For me if I loved sewing so much I would grab a needle and thread to create something. It wouldn't matter that I didn't have a sewing machine. Well what happened is I ended up purchasing a $400 sewing machine. And guess what happened to that sewing machine? It sat there in the box. The excuse was that they needed the space to use it. And that it was too hard to learn and use. Excuse after excuse till it was a $400 paper weight in a box. The main thing I'm getting at is if you want something really bad in your life you will find a way to make it happen. But you can't make excuses for everything in your life and pointing the finger at the world.


Now your probably asking we do most of us allow this to happen. When what we want is staring us right in the face. And most of the time it is just because fear. Fear often if the main part of it all. Fear can be broken down into False Evidence Appearing Real. That a lot of times it Is all in your head and the only thing stopping you from having things you want in your life is you. Plain and simple. You have to make the change that you want to see in your life.


I hope these few videos inspire you to stop making an excuse in life and go do something. Focus and keep moving forward. Remember that the only one holding you back is you. And that you do have it in you to make things happen. Cause in the end we only get one life so enjoy it and life it to the fullest. Be brave and go out in the world with no fear!
