THERE ARE SYSTEMATIC FORCES that are created to BREAK US, but to RECLAIM our prestigious pride, we have to work COLLECTIVELY.

I implore you to take this walk with me. Why? If our foundation is weak, then the slightest thing that happens outside of our control will cost us to lose some of the progress we have made.

We cannot CONTINUE to allow this to happen.

I NEED YOUR SUPPORT - PLEASE DONATE & SHARE THIS POST.

@goingbeyondlimitations

I received an offer for a TV appearance, but I want to make the trip more than just talking about what I am doing. I want to turn this trip into 3-4 weeks of #EMPOWERMENT.

I will be on break from my doctoral classes, from giving lectures, and I want to take the break to not only CULTIVATE #POSITIVE SELF-IMAGE but to ignite #HOPE and #POSSIBILITIES in our young men.

The only way the narrative is going to change is if #WE do something about it.

Join me on this journey!

This 3-4 weeks initiative will give me a great momentum going into 2019 to empower 1 MILLION #Black male students.

THANKS IN ADVANCE FOR YOUR SUPPORT.

The REASON why only some people achieve WHAT they want out of life is that only some PEOPLE are WILLING to do what OTHERS won't do.

Who are you?

Are you the PERSON with only the DESIRE to achieve MORE out of life? Or, are you the PERSON with the desire and also the DISCIPLINED so you can ACHIEVE what you want out of life? I hope you are the PERSON who FALLS in the LATTER. Why? It is important because it is going take having more than the desire to succeed in life. It's a p[rocess to achieve big dreams. Well, you can have small dreams but if you going are going to dream might as well you dream big.

EVERYONE who has ACHIEVED greatly in their RESPECTIVE areas is DISCIPLINED. Without you doing what you say you are GOING to do even when you don't feel like it, you'll not reach your GOALS.

It's being disciplined that is going to bring forth the rewards you seek. Everything of value requires nurturing, requires attention and requires discipline. I must say, be disciplined not only in your actions, but also be disciplined in your THOUGHTS.

Much RESPECT to all the dream chasers. Chasing your dreams is not ALWAYS the easiest, but the PERSON who is DETERMINED will make progress despite what they ENCOUNTERED on their JOURNEY.

The DREAM chasers who are DETERMINED they see it and believe it.

Remember, when CHASING your dreams you SOMETIMES have to do what some PEOPLE is going to THINK is IMPOSSIBLE.

No one path is the same, some seem to get what they want with ease but what you don't see is the backstory of their hard work, disappointment, setbacks, and even failures. But why you get to see THEM in their glory is because they didn't STOP or give up on their DREAMS.

SOMEWHERE IN THE NEAR FUTURE, IT COULD BE YOU WHO WILL BE CELEBRATING YOUR BIG SUCCESS BUT YOU HAVE TO WANT IT BADLY.

It possible for you to become a SUCCESS story. Read it this way, I am going to BECOME a success story. I hope you had a good feeling reading it. Why? Before you become who you are capable of BECOMING, you have to BELIEVE in its possibility.

I believe you have heard the saying before, where you focus your attention matters, and if you want to become a success story it matters even more. By the way, it's okay that you ACKNOWLEDGE your successes. When you feel good about doing well it will keep you motivated and you need the MOTIVATION to keep WORKING towards your DREAMS.

If all you do is FOCUS on what you are not DOING well, you are going to feel STRESSED and stress will ONLY allow slow you DOWN.

Look, no one is not good at everything. So if there is something you didn't do as well as you wanted to, learn from it and don't spend too much of your time thereafter to focus on what you didn't do well.

Successful people don't wake up each day looking for things they can feel bad about themselves. They look for things they can feel good about themselves, and you should do the same. WHEN YOU FEEL GOOD, YOU'LL GET MORE THINGS DONE.

The time is always RIGHT to do the right thing. If you believe there's SOMETHING that needs to be done and you can do SOMETHING about it, you should start DOING it.

Don't underestimate the impact that you can make. There are going to be some things that you are not going to be able to do by yourself, but that doesn't mean you shouldn't start the process by yourself.

Two very IMPORTANT things  happens when you answer the call, when you act on the FEELING you feel, the feeling is so STRONG that where no matter what you do you cannot shake it, you begin to CHANGE lives, but more than that, you begin to realize SOMETHING about yourself which only could be REALIZED by you acting on your BURNING desire.

What's your p[urpose? Your purpose doesn't have to be what EVERYONE is doing, but doing what gives your life meaning, and if it is what someone else is DOING, then, by all means, do it.

Some of those who have achieved greatly realized that the GREATEST accomplishments come from what they've CONTRIBUTED to HUMANITY.

Have you been showing up? It's great you have been. To remind you, PATIENCE is a QUALITY that you need to have if you are going to PURSUE big goals.

By the way, the only way to work towards a goal is to set a goal. But the question not becomes, are you determined?

The reason your DETERMINATION for what you want is important is that you are going to face CHALLENGES and some failures along the journey to success.

But with determination, you are going to need patience. It's the ability to exercise patience that is going to help you to PERSEVERE on the journey TOWARDS your GOAL.

WHEN YOU ARE ABLE TO DEAL WITH THE CHALLENGES THAT COMES WITH PURSUING YOUR GOALS, YOU ARE MORE LIKELY TO FIND SOLUTIONS IN A MORE TIMELY MANNER.

When you are able to exercise patience, you also are better able to focus on the task at hand. To put it DIFFERENTLY, don't think you have to do EVERYTHING or say yes to everything. Stay FOCUSED on whatever you CHOOSE to do.

There are going to be a lot of things you are going to find out while you are pursuing your passion and some is going to surprise you.

Some of who you think is going to have your back won't, and there are going to be people who you never thought would, will. Outside of that, when you take the leap of faith it will require you at times to ask for help and to remind you, there's nothing wrong with you asking others to help you. In fact, those who have achieved great SUCCESS, know how IMPORTANT it is to ask for help.

There are going to be things you don't want to hear. Things like, what is worth having is not easy, but it's true, and if you WANT what you say you want, then, keep putting in the work because HARD WORK pays. Remember, it's not the absence of DIFFICULTY that makes the successful, SUCCESSFUL but their attitude during the PROCESS.

What was your attitude like today?

By the way, there are PEOPLE who want to SEE you SUCCEED in life. Therefore, you may want to SHARE with those around some of what you were able to PUSH THROUGH.

Remind YOURSELF - I AM DESTINED FOR GREATNESS. If you say it and you didn't feel good, say it again. This time with enthusiasm. I AM DESTINED FOR GREATNESS.

Did you start your day off feeling POSITIVE? The mindset that you start your day is important. If you want to have peace of mind, you SOMETIMES have to CHANGE the things you can and then, work with what you are not able to change UNTIL you can make the NECESSARY changes.
One important question that you will have to answer and it doesn't have to be out loud, but it is NECESSARY you answer it. The question is, are WILLING to make the required SACRIFICE to see your DREAMS come true?

The means, you have to be the one to take full RESPONSIBILITY to CHANGE the things you want to see changes around. Don't just wait for SOMEONE to create for you the environment to HELP you move forward. There are others who started out not knowing how exactly they would BREAK free from what was considered their norm. Once you know what you want, start preparing your environment to reflect the changes you hope to see in your life.

If you are going to change the things that can change in your life, you can't be complaining about it.
