I’ve been absent from this blog for a while. I never intended to take a break. However, I’ve been lacking in the creativity / inspiration department. I look at photos and nothing excites or interests me. This has also carried over into revamping this blog. It took me a long time to choose a logo and template. I’m in a weird space right now. Before you assume, it’s not that deep. My mind is focused on other things, which means blogging, hobbies, and interests have taken a backseat. Perhaps I lack creativity / inspiration because I’ve been busy lately. Who knows. I miss blogging, so hopefully I’ll post new content soon.
I enjoy reading Shola Richards’ website called The Positivity Solution. I wanted to share an excerpt of his post called “Road to Mediocrity" which is very inspiring. I would definitely recommend checking out his website.
There is nothing more pathetic, pitiful, and embarrassing than a person who will do what’s necessary to improve their lives, only if it’s easy.
Why such harsh words?
Because I used to be a guy who needed it to be easy, and it almost ruined my life. I’ve gone down that dark, lonely road before and I don’t want the same fate for you or for anyone else.
Living an epic life, a life that we’re proud to use as an example for our loved ones, and a life that maximizes our potential on this earth, will never happen by consistently choosing the “easy” road.
Don’t believe me?
Ask a person who made the agonizing decision to permanently walk away from a toxic relationship with a family member.
Ask a single, working mom who found the time to accomplish her lifelong dream of getting a college degree while raising two little boys.
Ask a person who found the discipline to make better food choices, kept showing up to the gym even though she was severely overweight, and as a result, lost 70 lbs and fully regained her health.
Ask a person who found the courage to stand up to his abusive boss who was making his life a living hell.
Ask a person who looked at his paralyzing fear of public speaking square in the eyes and gave a successful presentation in front of 100 complete strangers.
One thing that you’ll never hear any of them say was that it was “easy.”
