Finding Confidence

No matter what happens in your life you have to stay cool. You have to allow the reality that everything is going to be ok, run through your body. When you reach for big things in your life I can easily tell you from experience, it will never be a piece of cake. That cake is delicious but you need to watch out for the knife that is cutting those sweet pieces in your life. What you need for life’s endeavors is confidence. I could stop this speech with this one idea and just tell you that you can achieve anything in life by just being confident in the fact that you can do it, you will meet your goals.

When you set out on a new journey, it can be fun but the one I embark on currently has already been testing the confidence of many parts of my life. I am working with something I have never done in a place I have never been. The great part of this is I am adventuring to a place I have always wanted to go.

You do not need to find confidence, it is already in you, all you have to do is not be afraid to use it. It is a worthwhile but heavy toll as confidence puts you at the front seat of everything you want in life. You have to be ready to fail just as much as you succeed. You have to know when one way does not work try another. No one but you can take your confidence away. In the same confidence that you know you can breathe, know that you can do anything!

Try (Variety Friday)

the

This April Health month started with the idea to try a new challenge. A challenge to eat better, be more active and loss weight. 2 weeks in I can proudly say I am accomplishing these challenges. My move down here started with the idea to start a new career with something completely different. I accomplished that, by now working in an elementary school! I wanted to try and find work over the summer and boy did I ever accomplish that! I will be working on a cruise ship again but this time up in Alaska for the summer. If I never would have tried working on a cruise ship in the first place, I would have never accomplished working on the cruise ship a 2nd time. Its a once in a life time opportunity for me and now I get to do it again!

Great things can happen in your life all you have to do is TRY and you can ACCOMPLISH anything. Have a great weekend everyone.

Ernest Hemingway, Famous Quote Friday

“Before you act, listen. Before you react, think. Before you spend, earn. Before you criticize, wait. Before you pray, forgive. Before you quit, try.”

-Ernest Hemingway

 

 

Born and raised in Oak Park, Illinois, Ernest Hemingway was a very influential American author and journalist. This quote seems to be the longer version of a phrase that most of us probably grew up with, “think before you act.” Before you take action on someone or something you need to listen to what is going on. In response before you react you need to think about what you are going to do or say and how it is going to effect your future. I think a lot of us spend before we earn. That is what we call credit cards. I dream of the day where I rid myself of credit card debt. Before you criticize someone wait and try to realize where they are coming from. You don’t know their background story so you really have no reason to criticize people without waiting for all the facts. Before you pray, forgive. I may not be the go to guy for this one but to me it means before for you pray to who you worship for forgiveness you need to forgive those you have directly wronged. Lastly my favorite, before you quit anything in your life you need to try everything!

 

Have a great week everyone. For those of you in the United States fall is upon us, what a beautiful time! For those around the world I would love to hear what kind of weather graces you now!

 

 ***I discovered today there is debate about this quote, if it was Ernest’s or someone else. I won’t get into that here though because no matter who said it, it still has great meaning.***
