”The only person you are destined to become, is the person you decide to be” – Ralph Waldo Emerson.
I ran into this quote by Ralph and it reminded me of a conversation I was having with one of my friends not too long ago. What we spoke about will remain private of course but what I can say, is that he has been dealing with some insecurities as of late which I believe is caused by what he allows in. We people sometimes underestimate the importance of filtering our environment and our minds. We want to strive for success and achieve all of these great things and think if we work hard enough, we will succeed…eventually. But the work you put in is not the only thing you have to consider here. I am no believer of man being able to do anything on own strength but we all have, luckily or unluckily, been given the freedom of making our own decisions. And a great part of success is dependent on what you consume. Ever heard the saying; ”you are what you eat”. When you consistently eat unhealthy, your body will start breaking itself down daily but when you eat healthy it has a complete opposite effect on your mood, energy, stamina and so on. Same goes for relationships. But why do so many of us spent over hours trying to leave a great impression, so being aware and taking responsibility of the energy we bring but don’t handle the energy we allow in with that same care? I know my friend is not the only one struggling with this; allowing his dreams to die based on what goes on around him..opinion of man. This conversation we had burned such a fire in me that I wanted to talk about it in a video, cause I’m pretty sure he’s not the only one dealing with this. So for all my young (or older hihi) folks out there needing some encouragement, I got you covered!
I recently uploaded a video on my YouTube channel where I talked about this and then some. Check it out and feel free to share your thoughts! xx
