The Sky is the Limit
I am motivated to see how far I can push my life from this point forward. Not with my physical ability but with my mind. I am inspired to live my life in a first class fashion. The vision I have for my family’s life has no limitations but it does have direction. The borders of the United States can’t hold this spirit. Through education, I’ve come to realize that the world is a lot smaller than I once believed it to be. Understanding that inspires me to want to learn other languages so I can appreciate, operate, and function in different cultures. I am unsure of how quickly one can become fluent in another language but I would like to learn enough to operate like a local. I am interested in learning Spanish, Hebrew, and Mandarin.
I have the spirit to live. Prison has allowed me to realize how much time I was wasting, wasting time. Life is too precious to occupy my time with trivial matters and petty worries. So many were right about me when they say I lost my mind. They are absolutely right. I lost my mind when I believed that all I could be was a professional football player in the past. I have the capacity, ability, and the potential to be that and so much more. It comes down to intelligently investing my energy. I am going to pursue my vision with all the energy floating through this body. I refuse to allow my family to recognize me as a loser or a quitter. This time away has made me more intelligent yet more aggressive in my attempts to improve me and my family’s life. If you have ever set out to do something great or substantial with your life then you will definitely be able to identify with this post. If you haven’t, I hope these few words inspire you to be more tomorrow than what you are today. Aim a little higher; pursue your aspirations aggressively and with a lot more intelligence.
If someone doubts your mental or physical ability to accomplish your dreams say nothing to the nay-sayer or critic. Let them live in their own misery. They are just mad they can’t find the energy to change their miserable life and they find joy in discouraging you. Real men and women encourage and support people who are attempting to change their life. I don’t respect all the down talk. I hate it when people tell others what they can or cannot do. I hate it when losers tell people they cannot be what they want to be simply because they are a piece of crap themselves. I hate it when people don’t help others tap into their potential. I hate when people hold back correct information or give incorrect information for the sole purpose of discouraging someone from maximizing their life. I hope this encourages anyone attempting to change their life that has gotten discouraged along the way.
