If You Want Something You've Never Had

If you want something you’ve never had, you have to become someone you’ve never been. You must rise up to the challenge. And I hope for you, the challenge is so great that you must grow into the person who can accomplish it. I hope the dream is daunting. I hope it scares the hell out of you. I hope you fail. Because in all of this, you give yourself the chance to muster up the courage to grow out of your old shell. You get that fire inside of you. The motivation. The inspiration.

And then you work.

You lose yourself in the work. Don’t stick a toe in it. No, cannonball into it. Love it. Embrace it. Smother it. Give it everything you have. Because in your work, a work you love, love is shown in the final product itself. Show it to the world.

Fear not. Not because fear won’t be present, but because the heart snuffs it out. Trust yourself. Trust the path. Trust the work. Trust the process. Trust the love.

    Immersing yourself in whats unknown will have your anxieties revving up more often than we would like to admitt. But as 2Pac says “Hold on, be strong. Cause when it’s on, it’s on but hold on” DON”T FEAR NEVER WORRY. That verse did alot for me during the toughest of times. Still repeat it over to myself every now & then.
