Never Let Anybody Tell You That You Can’t Be Great

People will tell you that you can’t or won’t do something. When they tell you that, don’t tell them that they are wrong show them that they are wrong. Words mean nothing, actions do.

My early-life wasn’t the easiest, I had doctors and nurses tell me that I would never live life outside of the four walls of a hospital.

They told me I didn’t have a chance at living life without their help. Early on in life, I suffered from gangrene, ruptured intestines, a stroke and I live daily with cerebral palsy.

No, things aren’t as easy for me to do as they might be for a person that doesn’t have cerebral palsy, but that doesn’t mean that I can’t do it.

When people tell you that you can’t or won’t do something, work for it, take those words and shove them down their throats.

The fact of the matter is, you can be great, but are you willing to encounter adversity? Do you have the courage to stick it out when life knocks you down?

Do you have the strength that it takes to overcome adversity.

No matter what race or gender you are, you can achieve anything you want if you are willing to encounter what is going to come your way and try to knock you out?

Success doesn’t discriminate, anybody can be successful, but if you want to be great?

You determine your future, nobody determines your future but you. You are the only one that can decide now what your future contains. Will you let the doubters win, or will you knock them out?

Leave a LEGACY.

You have what it takes to be great, but do you have what it takes to be greater than the great? Don’t be satisfied.

What will your legacy be?

In Order to Accomplish Your Dream, You Have to Be in the Right Environment

As I type this, I’m listening to motivational speaker, Les Brown, and said something that really caught my attention.

You can accomplish any goal or dream that you might have in this life if you have the right mindset.

But, mindset isn’t everything, the environment also a lot to do with your success rate and so do the people that you surround yourself with.

Just a few minutes ago, Les said “Everybody don’t want you to win, everybody won’t be a part of your dream, you have to ask yourself, ‘”Who can I count on and who can I count out.'”

You see, when I heard that, it dawned on me, there are people that are just in your life because it benefits them.

Those people aren’t meant to be a part of your dream, they just want to be associated with you.

Everybody won’t be in your corner, there are people who will be in the opposite corner rooting against you, but will act like they are in your corner when they are around you.

Then, there are people who will be in your corner and support you no matter what, those are the people that you need to surround yourself with.

Don’t keep surrounding yourself with people who are in the opposite corner, surround yourself with people who will be in your corner no matter what.

Surround yourself with people who aren’t just around you to benefit from your past successes because those are the ones that will be with you even after you have reached your dream.

Without the right environment, you are not going to succeed, find the right environment for yourself and stay there, don’t let those who are just around you because it’s convenient.

You have the power in you to create a better life. But are you willing to sacrifice those people that drag you down, in order to find those who will bring you to the top?
