Make that dream become a reality. Because if you don’t, you will be working for somebody else to make their dreams become a reality
“I’ve got a simple, simple, simple question for you, here’s the question: “Do you believe that one day you’re not gonna live in a world that was given to you, that’s right, you’re going to actually live in the world that you dream of.”
You got to make every single second count. You got to go into the future and see it baby. You’ve got to come back to the present – and you have got to take the big goal, that big dream, that big reality – that’s what I said – you got to take that big reality.
You got to take small steps, make them manageable, to make your dream become a reality. Think big, dream big, but start small – that’s right – start small. Remember what I told you! Start from where you are, with what you have, cause what you have is plenty. The biggest enemy you have to deal with is yourself! There’s an old African proverb that says,
“If there’s no enemy within, the enemy outside can do us no harm.”
You don’t have to personally be perfect. Are you hearing me!? There are those of you right now; you should have cut a CD; you should have wrote a book; you should have got in school and got that degree; you should have started your own business. There are so many things that you should have done – you should have done! But you didn’t do it because you’re scared. You believe,… I ain’t scared! You are scared, you are scared of failure. You’re scared to make a mistake. You’re scared because you’re not perfect. And I’m telling you today. You aint got to be perfect – Are you hearing what I’m saying? You don’t have to be perfect to get what you want, to do what you want, to have what you want, to be what you want. You don’t have to be perfect. It’s a lie!
There will never be a point in your life, when It’s the right time to do a great thing. If you’re waiting for that perfect moment, that perfect time, it’s not going to happen. You know what you have to do? You have to create the perfect time, and the perfect opportunity, and the perfect situation. I a lot of people become comfortable. They stop growing, they stop wanting anything, they become satisfied. People getting ready to go to jobs that they don’t like; jobs that are making them sick. You see when you’re not focusing on your goal, you are literally committing spiritual suicide.
When you have some goal out here that you are stretching for and reaching for, that takes you out of your comfort zone, you will find out some talents and abilities you have, that you didn’t know you have! When the message of misery visits you, what are you going to do? What will keep you in the game?
There are things that you think you will never need to know; that you may only need to know one time in your life that could save your life because you had that knowledge. Unless you attempted to do something beyond that you have already mastered, you will never grow. What is it that you have looked at, that at some point in time you decided you couldn’t do it? That you talked yourself out of it? You waiting on your next door neighbour to make it happen for you, it may not happen. You waiting on your mother, or your father – they may be so ancient in their thinking that they don’t understand this opportunity that you have. If you’re waiting on them to get everything done. You don’t beg average people to be phenomenal. You don’t beg good people to be phenomenal. You just are phenomenal and you are to train phenomenal.
“What reason can you remember that you can call on, that you can reach on, to make you get back up. Find that reason.”
If you’re not where you are, if you’re not where you want to be, if you don’t have what you want to have, if you’re not where you think you should be in this particular place, it has nothing to do with the system, but it has everything to do with the fact that you’re not making the sacrifice. I want you to make that dream become a reality. Because if you don’t, you will be working for somebody else to make their dreams become a reality. The question is, “What are you going to do with your time? What drives you?” Greatness is a lot of small things done well. Day after day, workout after workout, obedience after obedience, day after day. When things don’t work out for you, when things happen that you could not anticipate – what are the reasons you can think of to keep you strong? You will never ever be successful until you turn your pain into greatness, until you allow your pain to push you from where you are to push you to where you need to be. Stop running from your pain and embrace. Your pain is going to be a part of your mind, your product. I challenge you to push yourself.
See it’s easy to be on the bottom. It doesn’t take any effort to be a loser. It doesn’t take any motivation, any drive, in order to stay down there at a low level. But it calls on everything in you, you have to harness your will, “I’m going to challenge myself!” I mean that what you did last week don’t count. Today is the only important day. There are 86,400 seconds in a day, and it’s all critical. You got 86,400 today and it’s what you do today is going to see who you are. Nobody is going to talk about what you did last week. You have this opportunity of a lifetime. It means absolutely nothing if you don’t take advantage of it in the lifetime of this opportunity.
I’ve got a saying, that when life knocks you down try and land on your back, because if you can look up, you can get up. If you want a thing bad enough then go out and fight for it. To work day and night for it. To give up your time, your peace for it. If all that you dream and scheme is about it. And life seems useless and worthless without it. See it’s time now, if you want to make this your decade – you’ve got to start saying YES to your life. You’ve got to start saying YES to your dreams, YES to your unfolding future, YES to your potential — as opposed to saying NO. When you die, die on ‘E’. Leave no dream left behind die. Leave no opportunity left behind. When you leave this Earth, accomplish every single thing you can acknowledge. Listen to me, you going to be here one day, but you’ll never be here if you give up, if you give in, if you quit… You got to want to succeed, as bad as you wanna breath.
