Gratitude Makes Everything Work

“I should be a cheerful bit.” – Cassper Nyovest (I’m Alive)

Pure unadulterated gratitude lifts your spirit, makes you happier and puts you in a better mood.

The enemy’s point of attack is never through what you really lack. Rather it’s through what you don’t have that you think you need to be happy.

Instead of being obsessed with what you don’t have, slow down, take a moment and think about what you do have.

Good health? A strong body?

A loving family?

Good friendships?

Solid relationships?

Mentors, teachers, and people to learn from?

A good job? A great business?

A dream in your heart?

Or just the plain fact that you are alive and well.

It might sound outlandish, but it’s also okay to be grateful for the tough times.

Because gratitude is simply everything.

Being grateful for who you are and what you have is even more.

Gratitude is a ray of sunshine in a very dark world.

Be thankful.

It Could All Go Wrong, But…You Got This

“Just hold on” – Drake (Hold On, We Going Home)

There’s something called Murphy’s Law.

It’s an adage that states: “Anything that can go wrong will go wrong”.

It means that in certain situations, whatever can potentially go wrong will go wrong, wishful thinking or not, hardworking or not.

But that’s never enough reason to be fatalistic.

It’s okay to work, hope, wish and pray for good luck.

But it’s better to take it in good stride when it doesn’t work out, no matter what.

Holding on isn’t sexy. But it’s always best to keep holding on.

The beauty of life is all the things that happen full cycle.

Never give in.


“You never know, it could happen to you” – Drake (Paris Morton Music 2)

The beauty of keeping an open mind is the myriad of opportunities that find their way in.

When you keep an open mind focused on possibilities, you effectively set up a communication line with the universe.

The universe does its own part by sending those opportunities your way. You do your part by acting on them.

But first, you have to believe that it’s possible.

What It Means To Walk Your Path

“I drove by the fork in the road and went straight” – Jay Z (Renegade)

Humans are infinitely wired to follow the path of least resistance.

Everyone wants it easier.

You do. Me too.

But I learned something this past week.

Living a purpose-filled life, aspiring to a higher calling and wanting to be more would most likely require you to take a path least followed, not the path with least resistance.

The path least followed comes with the most resistance.

You would be misunderstood.

You might even be laughed at and ridiculed because of your aspirations.

But it’s your choice to either exist like everyone else or be talked about for ages (in a good light).

Or would you rather do what everyone else is doing and die mediocre?

Think about it:

Everything is vanity and meaningless already. So, why not just do what you’d be proud of on your dying bed?
