I’m Nobody.

I’m nobody
don’t need anybody to make that clear
I’m the same different as everybody else,
just got a story somebody needs to hear

I ain’t no angel
no stranger to doin’ some devils work
but way more days believin’ in God
& doing somethin’ to make a better earth

I’m not perfect
done made a share of mistakes and more
heap of people know my darker side
what would I hide in the shadows for?

I ain’t always went the right way
I went the way I knew how and well
went about it the best way I knew to go,
some of those ways I shouldn’t tell

I don’t regret much
not much sense in looking back to see
just keep lookin’ forward to the lesson,
less the chance of less lookin’ back at me

I can’t say what I’m done fighting
and I’m not gonna wait to find out
jus keep doin what must be done to do it
get in the cage, engage, then climb out

I won’t pretend or posture
I know full well the work I need to do
a little support, encouragement, and help
that is all that I need from you

Because,

I’m nobody
don’t need anybody to make that clear
I’m the same different as everybody else,
just got a story somebody needs to hear.

Just DO. 4/17/23

DO.

Discipline and Obedience.

DO.

You have to DO your work, with DISCIPLINE and OBEDIENCE.

You have to DO your best, with DISCIPLINE and OBEDIENCE.

You have to DO!

The DISCIPLINE is going to be your dedication to it. How committed are you? Are you focused enough to continue through the distractions and the discouragement? Are you serious enough to decide on a routine and a system that you are going to follow through on, regardless of whatever might or might not happen? Are you prepared enough to endure the impact to not just your energy, but to your emotions, and to your economy?
Because the level of mandatory discipline that you have to possess is going to cost you, damn near everything! Do you have that level of focus? Are you prepared to eliminate or at least remove yourself, from the access of anything or anyone that distorts that focus? Are you ready to deal with the chaos that is certain to come once you break up the system that things and people relied on you to stay linked to in order to afford their comfortability?
Because you cannot imagine the amount of resistance you are going to encounter once you “switch up” and start caring about you. Once you prioritize YOU and YOUR needs, dreams, goals, wants, ambitions, and requirements. The level of opposition that will present itself, without reason, will be tremendous! You are going to get it from everywhere, and anywhere, ridiculously.
Are you really aware of how much this is going to cost you? Relationships, friendships, money, opportunities, sleep, fun, time. And more. It is going to cost you your comfort, your habits, your traditions, your familiarities, your weaknesses , your routines, your old identity.

You will have to give up your old self. The you that hasn’t been willing to DO what was necessary to get where YOU really want to be.
That’s scary. Are you scared enough to go through it though? Scared of falling back into the same routine. Scared of what will happen if you never try your best. Scared of losing out on the chance to see what happens when you DO the work.

The OBEDIENCE is going to require more from you. The obedience is your acknowledgment and acceptance of the rules that YOU MUST FOLLOW in order to have the level of dedication you need to produce your results.
So you’re going to have to listen to; To respect; To submit to; To trust:

YOU.

Ultimately, that’s who this is about. That is who benefits or suffers. That is who pays the price or reaps the reward. That is who matters: YOU!
You are going to have to honor the commitment that you make to YOU! That’s the obedience that will change YOUR life. Because in reality, nothing else matters. If you don’t have a YOU to matter to, will anything or anyone else?

NO.

So, are you ready to do what YOU said YOU would? Are you ready to hold YOU accountable? Are you able to be that level of honest with YOURSELF, where you recognize that YOU are the actual reason that you fail or succeed? Do you have enough consideration for yourself to understand that YOU matter and YOU deserve the respect for the rules that will bring about the results YOU want?
Then, be obedient to the commitments and guidelines that YOU KNOW must be honored in order to achieve YOUR dream.

You should still pray and believe in whatever YOUR faith utilizes to teach you that this is bigger than you. But know that that faith should also teach you that whatever is bigger than you, is bigger because of you. YOU MATTER. Whatever is bigger matters as well, but if there is no YOU then how could… nevermind. This is about you.

This is about you being ready to DO what it takes.

It is going to take EVERYTHING! And your obedience to the process will determine whether or not you get what is on the other side.

So, are you ready to implement a self-success-structure? The plan and procedures that will keep you on track. Work ethic, preparation, consistency, time management, budgeting, service, balance, character, integrity, healing, peace. Whatever the specific things are that are going to give YOU the best chances at following through on what YOU said.

Then DO…

DO what is necessary.
DO what is best.
DO what is required.
DO what YOU need to.
DO something different.
DO something consistently.
DO something amazing.
DO something worth YOUR while.
DO something NOW.

Just DO.

May be, it’s YOU. 4/16/23

Maybe the one testing you, is YOU.

Not God.

Not the Universe.

Not the Enemy.

You.

Maybe your subconscious is trying to bring your conscious into an accurate awareness of who you are.

Maybe your higher self is attempting to pull your lower self, up to the standards that YOU REQUESTED, and actually REQUIRE, in order to be RESPONSIBLE for YOUR SUCCESS.

Maybe it’s the person that YOU COULD BE, challenging the person that YOU ARE currently being to a competition to see if YOU really want what and who YOUR potential says YOU might become.

Maybe YOU are the resistance.

No bigger obstacle;

No mightier challenge;

No crazier situation;

No wilder circumstance.

You.

What if you’re the one presenting the opposition? What if you’re the one holding you hostage to those habits and traditions? What if you’re the one blaming you for mistakes and the trouble and the problems of your past? What if yours is the voice convincing you that you can’t? What if yours are the words casting spells and speaking contrary to you moving forward?

What if it’s you?

What if it is a YOU on the inside of YOU trying to escape the prison that YOU put YOURSELF in?

Because of trauma. Because of pain. Because of hurt. Because of insecurity. Because of tradition. Because of the past. Because of people. Because of excuses.

What if YOU haven’t gone where you wanted/needed to GO, done what you wanted/needed to DO, been where you wanted/needed to BE…

BECAUSE OF YOU?

What are you going to do about that?

How are you going to handle that?

When are you going to change that?

Where are you going to start?

(You know I have an answer, right?)

YOU.

That is your WHO/WHAT/WHEN/WHERE/WHY…

YOU.

YOU are going to fix this!

You are going to REALIZE it.

RIGHT NOW.

You are going to start speaking the truth that YOU deserve, RIGHT NOW.

You are going to recognize YOUR POWER, acknowledge it, accept it, and ascend into the position of authority over it, RIGHT NOW!

You are going to STAND UP. RIGHT NOW.

You are going to speak life into YOURSELF, demanding change and adjustments and results, from YOU, RIGHT NOW.

You are going to find a mirror, and talk yourself right into the light that is been waiting to shine on you all of this time, RIGHT NOW!

You are going to KNOW that YOU are the MOST IMPORTANT person in YOUR LIFE because YOU decide whether or not YOU do the work that YOU need to do in order to take care of or for anything or anyone else. You are going to do that RIGHT NOW!!!

And YOU are going to overcome:

The temptation that you thought was impossible to resist. The habit that you thought was impossible to break. The apology you thought was impossible to give. The forgiveness you thought was impossible to achieve. The hurt you thought was impossible to get over. The place you thought was impossible to leave. The dream you thought was impossible to realize. The relationship that you thought was impossible to have. The success you thought was impossibe to materialize, manage, and maintain. The consistency that you thought was impossible to possess.

The positive example you thought you might never be. The parent you thought you might not become. The partner you thought you’d never amount to. The person you thought you couldn’t grow into.

Because you were looking at this all wrong.

Say it with me, “It is not impossible, because I’m POSSIBLE.”

And with that perspective, YOU BETTER TAKE BACK YOURSELF! Take YOU back from every distraction, demon, detour, desperation, discouragement, disappointment, disapproval, and definition that does not speak the YOU that YOU ARE!

RIGHT NOW!

And YOU are going to pass the test. The test that you thought was almost impossible to pass.

The test that might not have been a test. It was probably just a time. A “that” time. An ”old” time. A ”their” time. A “one” time.

But now, now is YOUR time.

GO.
