Comfort is dangerous.
It distracts you from knowing what you are fully capable of.
Every single day you’re alive.
Living a life where you are in control.
A life where time isn’t dictated by someone else.
Nobody but you.
A life where you can freely spend time.
With who you want.
Where you want.
When you want.
It starts with just taking the first step on an empty road.
When the road is empty, don’t look at it and feel alone.
You have no competition.
When everyone else is sleeping, you’re planning your next moves.
When everyone else is pulling back, you’re pulling ahead.
Stop focusing on what’s wrong with everyone else.
And start focusing on how great you have it, right now.
When everyone else is afraid, you’re excited.
When everyone else has stopped, you keep pushing.
When everyone else is upset, you’re the one smiling.
The road is long.
It’s exciting but know that it’s tough.
You’re gonna get lost.
You’ll overcome challenges.
You'll fall flat on your face.
You’ll lose friends and find better ones.
You’re gonna fail more often than you succeed.
You’ll be unsure.
You’ll be scared.
But you’re gonna look back and look everything you’ve accomplished.
You’ve come this far, you’re gonna keep pushing forward.
Remember tough situations don’t last long.
Everyday I want you to tell yourself.
“I may not be there yet but I am closer today than I was yesterday.”
Then one day, everything will click.
All the sacrifices will make sense.
The light at the end of the tunnel will be clear and in sight.
You will thank yourself.
For putting in the hard work, the sacrifice and the sweat.
So what are you waiting for?
Ready. Set. Go.
