Pushing beyond expectations is for you and for them. I know you’re wondering who I am referring to when I say them. These are the people who speak negatively about you or towards you, expects less, and are so quick to judge. These individuals can be family members, friends, and those who just do not understand your vision, but believe me, they will.
The first person you have to consider when pushing yourself is yourself. You are your own worst enemy when it comes to your words, actions, and thoughts. You are even your worst enemy when it comes to negative self-talk. We often speak negativity into existence, while trying to push ourselves beyond our own expectations. I want you to do yourself a favor. Push that negativity out of your mind and replace it with I can and I will. I also want you to push yourself beyond your expectations, but not over the limit. You have to push yourself just enough to where you are doing new and exciting things without becoming bored and redundant. You, as well as I know that once things become bored or redundant, the frequency of doing it decreases and we become less interested in that activity.
Now let’s talk about “Them.” You know, the one’s we’ve been taught to ignore, but how can we ignore someone who’s right in our faces? I want you to do the direct opposite than ignore. I want you to hear what others are saying, validate your feelings about what you hear, and then move positively in a silent or loud manner. I say this because some of us have been taught to move silently, while others have been taught to move loudly. Whichever way you choose, just know you got this. You are going to push yourself beyond your and their expectations.”
I am going to leave you with this… Push, Grind, and Sunshine. I want you to push and grind toward living in your passion, while creating sunshine no one can recreate nor destroy. Remember you hold the key to your happiness and the ability to live beyond your expectations.
