Have you ever…?

Have you ever had a doctor tell you to put your affairs in order?
I have.
Have you ever had a friend tell you that you are not going to recover, or be able to re-build?
I have.
Have you ever had a school mate or teacher tell you that you will not amount to anything?
I have.
Have you ever had a doctor tell you that you may never recover from an injury or illness?
I have.
Have you ever had a coach tell you that you do not have the ability or talent to compete?
I have.
Have you ever faced death? More than once?
I have.
Have you ever had a loved one, one whom said they love you or made a promise or even vow, then betray? More than once, or twice?
I have.
Have you ever heard God, or felt God tell you that you are enough. That you are miraculously, wonderfully, fearfully created and created for a purpose?
I have.

In summary of all that I was told, I ended up not having to put my affairs in order. I did recover, and re-build. I did, and have amounted to something being very successful in my career, achieving certifications, increasing my education, and help heal minds and souls. I did, and do have the athletic ability running HS varsity track, achieving more than one black belt, competing, winning as well as instructing and coaching not only others in karate, but in a variety of other sports. I did heal and recover and I am even healthier and stronger than I was in my 20s. I was not alone, I am not alone, I have never been alone, and I am current with a lady whom makes my cup runneth over with love, respect, admiration, support, and a divine partnership. A Proverbs 31 woman.

I am writing this to express to you, reader, to never give up, especially on yourself. Prove the naysayers wrong, block out pessimism, and negativity. Setbacks, mistakes and failures are just opportunities to learn, grow, improve and gain wisdom. Besides, a person never fails, unless they do not get back up.

Dream big, turn those dreams into a plan, and work that plan. Fear, and doubt are tools of the enemy. Comparison is the thief of joy. You cannot control what other people will think, say or do. However, you can control what you think, say, do, and how you influence others. Live your best life now. Do not just leave a legacy, live your legacy, right now, and each day.

Launch each day with Purpose, navigate with Principles, and explore with Passion!
