Roll the dice. Go ahead, roll them. The question really is though…”How many times have you actually put everything on the line?” Of course not your life…but your career…your lifestyle…your $…your time? Are you going to play it safe? Or set sail?All  I know is that when you actually go for it…the feeling is exhilarating…and at the same time a bit nerve-wracking. But you have to go for it. Because if you never try, you never know. You never will see your potential. That’s why I keep going back to my definition of hell: meeting the person you could have become in your last moment.

I have a lot to write about today, but that is going to come at a later time. I need some time to get straight what I want to say. But here’s the main point. Whatever you think you are, you will become. And you have a choice. You can either become a tiger, or a sheep. It is all up to you. Tigers hunt for opportunities, sheep do what their told. It is in your hands. Who are you going to be today?

I will dare to be great.
Look me in the eyes. What can you see? Can you see the fire in my heart? Can you see the passion for what I believe in, behind the smile, the tears, the blood, the pain, the happiness. Can you see me? Can you see me for who I am? 
I will not let myself end where I started. I am committed to change, to taking chances, to facing fear. I am committed to my hearts desires. I am committed to love. I will break walls, destroy obstacles, and fight for what I believe in. I do not fear the unknown any longer. I do not fear the future.

I do not fear this moment.

I am ready

“Our deepest fear is not that we are inadequate, our deepest fear is that we are powerful beyond measure.” “This kid is going to be the best kid in the world, this kids going to be somebody better than anybody every knew.” “Ima to show you how great I am. Only last week I murdered a rock, injured a stone, hospitalized a brick, I am so mean I make medicine sick.”

You can’t tell me no any longer. You can’t tell me I can’t do something. You can’t tell me I am this or that. You can’t tell me I am too short, too tall, to fat, to small. You can’t tell me I will fail. Maybe I will fail, but I don’t accept it. I will learn from failure, but I will not end with it.” It ain’t about how hard you can hit, it’s about how hard you can get hit and keep moving forward.” I am going to go out and get what I’m worth. My light guides me through the darkness. I will not play small.

I will shine. I will be,


I am powerful beyond measure. You may think I am this or that, you may have the other guy picked, but I will succeed. I will show the world. I will become what I know I am. Look into my eyes. Do you see me? Do you see who I am going to be, or do you see who I once was.” Ima show you how great I am”

“I handcuffed lightning, threw thunder in jail.” ”The price of greatness is responsibility.” It’s no ones right to tell me now, that I can’t go out and do what I want to do. I will not point fingers, I will not blame others for my fears. I will not let others make me crumble. I will continue to be knocked down, but I will continue to break to build. I will get up. I will dust myself off. I will spit out the blood. I will fight.” As we let our own light shine, we unconsciously give other people permission to do the same.”

I will shine

Look me in the eyes.

Shine with me.
