When the Going Gets Tough

Ruff runningYou have to work extra hard for everything you want to accomplish now. Although setting your goals unrealistically high motivates you to reach for the stars, you could grow discouraged and give up too soon. Remember, dreams are wishes your heart makes, so don’t let the limiting thoughts of your head stand between you and success.

Dream Big Lifestyle Principle: Don’t quit, ever.

100 Miles and Rhyming Playlist

Here’s a playlist of all the songs I’ve posted to Soundcloud so far for the Summer. I’ll be adding more to it every Friday until the end of the Summer. At the end of the Summer I’ll put all of the songs on a cd. I may do this for every season since I record so much. Hopefully something in my music inspires you to chase your dreams. No limitations.

100 Miles and Rhyming

First off I’d like to apologize for not keeping RUFFGOTRHYMES.COM as current as I’d like it to be. I’ve been working hard and focused on some great things and I can’t wait to share them with the world. Along with new t-shirts and more surprises, I’ve decided to release new music every Friday for the rest of the Summer. Most of these songs will be covers and verses I’ve written to some of my current favorite songs that I hear on the radio or artists that I like. I’ll also be taking requests to rap over songs that you all would like to hear me on. You can submit requests in the comments or by connecting with me via social networks @RuffGotRhymes. The first track released started with a song called “You and I” by Joe Budden from his album No Love Lost. To hear my version, visit my soundcloud here. I hope you all enjoy it and stay posted as I release new songs every Friday for the rest of the Summer. This is the beginning of my 100 Miles and Rhyming campaign, keep up!!!

No limitations.

Overcome Adversity

Ruff - Overcome AdversityWhen you’re in pursuit of your dreams and it seems that you are at the top of your game, life always throws that curveball. Be in the mindset of whatever can go wrong will go wrong, but the key is to be ready and brace yourself for it.

When I put on my Dream Big t-shirt this morning, I looked in the mirror and felt unstoppable. Although things haven’t gone exactly how I’ve planned or imagined them to go, I still walk in confidence and I still have faith. Sometimes you just have to take a timeout, take another look at the bigger picture, realize how far you’ve come, and why there is no turning back even though the journey is tough. Prepare yourself to fight through it.

In the midst of adversity you will find yourself. You will figure out who you are and what you’re really made of. No matter how high the odds are stacked against you, you have to keep moving forward. When you keep believing in your dreams and work hard to achieve them, you will realize that those mountains that used to be in your way look more like speed bumps now. Understand there will be unexpected circumstances and things will go wrong, but overcoming adversity is a key to living the Dream Big Lifestyle. Don’t give up and don’t limit yourself.

Happy Dream Big Friday,

- Ruff

Commitment Is Key

Earlier this week I started reading “Letters to a Young Brother”,  a book written by actor Hill Harper. He wrote it to help young black males get through life and not make the same mistakes he made at a certain age. I’d definitely recommend reading this book, just as someone recommended it to me about 2 years ago. Right, 2 years ago smh. I’ve had this book 2 years and only read about 40 pages. So Monday I decided I would I start from the beginning and read the whole book by the end of the week. There’s 5 parts or chapters if you wanna call em that, so I figured I could read 1 part a day and be done on Friday.

My first commitment of 2014. You may be thinking well how hard can that be? It’s only a book, it’s only 5 days, that’s easy. Realistically I could have probably read the whole book on Monday, but it’s not about that. This is about being consistent and committing to doing something from start to finish. Too often we give up too early and it’s usually right before something great is about to happen. So how do you stay focused and committed when things get tough? Don’t focus on the obstacles. Anything worth accomplishing will almost always have obstacles, just remember why you started. In the end you’ll feel a lot more confident going into future tasks.  Besides, crossing the finish line is always a good feeling. Remember, no limitations.
