Something to Prove
In today's world of online social media, we are more involved and interested in other people's lives then ever before. In the past, we would only know how someone was doing or what they were up to if we gave took the time out of our day to give them a call and display our care for them by asking the relevant questions. Today, you can learn this information from that small computer that is always right in your pocket (or most likely in your hand).
In a world for of re-do's, re-makes, rehashing, and re-runs, the most important thing we often forget is just how unique we are. Billions upon billions of people on this planet, and each one of them is a UNIQUE INDIVIDUAL. Different families, different cultures, different experiences, different strengths, different weaknesses, different talents, different interests, different opinions. THAT is what makes this world so beautiful. And we forget this more than anything.
Each one of us is our own book, complete with a beginning, middle, and end, settings, characters, and conflicts. Each one of us holds the pen, and each one of us is fighting a battle every single day. It does not matter who you are, you are fighting this battle whether you recognize it or not. Each one of us is fighting for something to prove.
There are always feats to accomplish, goals to complete, talents to master...and something to fight for. There is ALWAYS something to fight for. No matter how down you feel you may be, no matter how difficult things seem, there is always something to fight for and something to prove. A bully to prove wrong, parents to impress, peers to compete with, role models to be more like. There is always a reason to take that step forward. And as long as you can take that next step, take it.
Yes, this is something you most likely will want to keep as personal information. But take a second and think. What is it that you are fighting for? Are you just not happy with your present circumstances? Do you want to ensure you can provide your children or future children with a better life than yours? Do you have someone to impress or prove wrong? For every single one of us, there is something deep down that gives us a reason to keep going. You need to eliminate your distractions and truly define what it is. Remind yourself of it every single day. Thumb tack it to your wall, give yourself a phone alert, write it down in your notebook. Remind yourself every day why you fight because you DO have a reason to fight and you ARE A FIGHTER.
Define your life. Define your focus. Know that you have something to prove and #GrowNOW.
