Everyone has a desire to do something, to be something, to be someone. You may not know this, but you have completed the third task the day you were born; You, are Someone. Everything else has a long steep hill that needs to be climbed to achieve it.
Your desire to achieve this must match your discipline, but the problem with us all is that we want it yesterday.
You can’t have it yesterday nor today, but with every step you take towards it, you will earn it tomorrow.
Life is a giant staircase, you look up it and you think this is too hard, it’s too much work, but you don’t get it. Life is hard and challenging and life loves to throw obstacles at you and many people fail to meet those challenges and work around those obstacles and fall into depression. They seek the bottle for relief or take antidepressants.
Brothers and Sisters these are excuses and excuses are lies. It’s the easy way out to self destruction.
Obama once said “Pick yourselves up and dust yourselves off.”
Climb those stairs one step at a time, don’t look up and never look down but concentrate on each step and work towards the top. You will never transform yourself if you don’t inconvenience yourself. “No pain, no gain.”
Pick up a square and draw a hundred lines, now pick up that dovetail saw and rip a hundred lines.
Do you get it?
Plane that wood until its flat, plane that edge until its square, then plane it out of square and do it all over again until there is nothing left of it.
Set up goals you want to achieve today and work on nothing but those goals and I guarantee you at the end of that day, you will achieve your goals.
Free yourselves from the shackles of bullsh*t, don’t let the naysayers tell you, you can’t earn a living from the craft. Don’t let your minds talk you out of
what life has to offer. It’s all there in front you, you need to reach out and grab it.
Empower yourselves by being the best you can be. Never ever give up, always work hard towards your goals and give back to the community. Help one another, teach one another and serve one another.
