The Marathon Continues…

The fact that I’ve recorded so much music and haven’t released as much maybe it’s been more therapeutic than anything… at this point I know I’m somewhere close to if not past that 10,000 hour mark, I can see it in how I create, the way that I study other artists, pick up on certain things so quick, and just gaining a whole new passion for the creative process. I can honestly say after I found out about @nipseyhussle a few months ago I didn’t even wanna listen to music for awhile, not his, not even my own. I was hurt and lost…. I might still be idk… but I had to continue on my marathon. I feel like I’ve dedicated so much of my life to this journey, sacrificed, missed out on a lot, disconnected from the world pretty much. It’s bigger than music for me, but this has definitely been a driving force. Idk where or how I would be without it.

Faith Is Everything

Dear Leader,

If you’ve been following me for a while you know how big I am on the power of faith. Faith can push us to do things most would consider impossible or very difficult. Faith creates confidence.

Below is a snippet of Hebrews Chapter 11 Verses 1-3 on faith:

“Now faith is confidence in what we hope for and assurance about what we do not see. This is what the ancients were commended for. By faith we understand that the universe was formed at God’s command, so that what is seen was not made out of what was visible.”

Faith is based on your belief.

All we really got is faith, think about it…. you only turn the light switch on because you BELIEVE the lights will come on. You continue to put one foot in front of the other because you BELIEVE it will move you in the right direction. You only start a new business because you BELIEVE it will be successful.

So here I tell you, Dream Big and have faith in your biggest dreams to make them possible.

Using “I Am” (Affirmations)

Leaders, here’s a video of me briefly talking about affirming things to yourself and the power of using the words “I Am” to describe your current feelings/moods/circumstances/etc. 

Be sure to subscribe to my YouTube channel for future videos!!

Get Out Of Your Way!!

  
Dear Leader, 

Along your journey to success you will face obstacles. Some of these obstacles are real and difficult to make it through, but they are not impossible. Some obstacles are only mental barriers we place in front of ourselves. We feel as if something outside of ourselves is holding us back from greatness. The truth is only we can hold ourselves back. 

You have the ability to face any challenge and win. That win may take some time, courage, sweat, and many other dedications, but they are possible. Put your faith in favorable outcomes and allow your greatness to be unleashed. Dream Big!!!

Success is not final, failure is not fatal: it is the courage to continue that counts.

See Your True Self 

  

Dear Leader,

It’s important to have a clear vision for your life. Where you are now DOES NOT determine where you can be. What you know now DOES NOT determine all that you can know. 

To understand your full potential, you have to understand your True Self. Your True Self has no limits, only challenges that can be fearlessly faced and defeated. 

Even if your current circumstances or life situations aren’t as you’d wish they would be, don’t focus on that. Instead, visualize your ideal life. Imagine yourself as strong as you want to be, as fast as you’d like, or as smart as you wish. Imagine how it will feel when you do exactly what you thought at first that you couldn’t. You are unstoppable. 

Now that you have imagined this, know that it is very possible. As stated by Napoleon Hill, “Whatever the mind can conceive and achieve, the mind can conceive.” This is so true. If you can imagine it, you can be it!! Follow your dreams and have faith in the magnificent possibilities!!

No True Limitations

Nothing Worth Having Comes EasyDear Leader,

Your physical body’s capabilities IS NOT your full potential. Your environment IS NOT your full potential. And neither one of these factors can determine what your full potential is. All of us aren’t able to slam dunk a basketball in a 10 foot goal or run faster than a cheetah, but these limitations on our physical bodies DO NOT limit our potential. You are capable of great things.

Challenge your mind to see past your perceived handicaps and continue striving towards reaching your full potential. No dream is too big. In your mind be a giant!! No obstacle is too difficult for you. After all, what’s worth having doesn’t come easy. Dream Big, Leader. No limitations.

Your fellow Lifestyle Leader,

Ruff
