For the past 4 years or so I have been thinking and studying in depth this idea of purpose and your purpose in relation to fear.
Growing up I had lots of missed opportunities. Now granted certain things happened for certain reasons but I still have these thoughts of "what if".
What if I had gone to a school for the arts when I was supposed to? - I wanted to be a dancer and I wanted to open Javi's World... Always.... (My youth center for the arts.... If you don't know about it click about and what's Javis world to see my vision)
But the thing is I didn't go....
Then I wanted to go AGAIN in college and missed that opportunity too.
At the time I blamed it on the face that I had too many things going on. It wasn't REALLY what I wanted to do. BUT the truth if the matter is... I allowed FEAR to keep me from my dreams.
Now I will always live with the "what ifs"
BUT I don't always have to live with regrets.
Now I know some of you are saying well that makes NO SENSE Javi... Well... For me it makes perfect sense. You see I have had so many things happen in my life including the fact that I have lost EVERYTHING I ever owned in life twice and I have been homeless and living with family due to things beyond my control.
BUT I am a firm believer that EVERYTHING happens for a reason... Everything and everyone has a purpose. We live when we are supposed to and we have a reason for being here.
We all have hopes and dreams and we also have fears but if we believe and FEAR NOT we can overcome ANYTHING in this world BUT it takes ACTION.
It's one thing to have a dream and a goal but what steps are you REALLY taking towards your dreams?
Are you fooling yourself into believing that you are working as hard as you possibly can? Are you REALLY pushing yourself to the limit? Have you made sacrifices? Have you stayed consistent? Have you had faith and trust in God that the things you want are ALREADY YOURS?!?
It's time to get it together and get your road map. It's time to make a plan and move forward with it.
So do it TODAY. Yes today.... You don't need a new year... A new month... A new week... All you need is a new day... Wake up and decide to commit to it and I promise with persistence and consistency and personal growth you will find the right path to what is already yours!
