Repost from @roninlegends using @RepostRegramApp - "I dont really wana duck but I might just go,
Them lot don't rate the righteous flow.
They just promote the negative shit,
Slow man down sedative shit,
Man like us spit relative shit,
Help man up like relatives.... Shit.
Till I'm gone I rep with my people,
Tell a racist we're all equal,
I'm gone till you treat man equal." - @bigcakes
I can't tell you how many days I have where I just want to leave everything. Deactivate all forms of social media, change my number and just go somewhere no one knows me.
Today has been one of those days. It is why, I love the mountains you can be who you are, no societal expectations, no one to judge you, nothing but the terrain and weather helping you find who you are. The pressure that turns the coal into a diamond.
But i had a conversation today that reminded me it is very important to show a true picture. Not this life is wondeful bull. The fact that it can't rain all the time and there is always regression to the mean. Two of my favourite quotes from two of my fav things to watch.
Yes, I have had a lot of wonderful experiences lately but the journey to those experiences you couldn't even find in a movie. You don't always have to be alright but it will always be alright in the end!
Remember it is the journey not the destination that matters. The difficult path will always teach you more than the easy one!
Check out bigcakes for some real rap.
Success over night is mostly fueled with disappointments like... Like Dj Sbu always say, success is not a race its a marathon 🔥💯🙏💜
The more we let others, especially our parents control our lives, the more we lose our ability to have boundaries. Boundaries are what makes us...us. Without them, it allows people to dictate where we move, even when we know it’s not what we want to do. There are circumstances that are sticky like those with children or addiction, but let’s keep this outside of that. Just know if your life isn’t the way you want it to be, maybe someone tilted us the wrong way in the past. Or maybe we defined our boundaries and never expanded as time went on. Both are bad, but both are 100% fixable. 😎

It’s so true. I fall into this, almost everyone falls into this, it’s just a way of life we allow because we know it’s acceptable. No one besides you really cares what you do with your time. In the end, all of our success comes directly from how we spend our time. Our success comes directly from what path we take: easy or hard. The disciplined life or the leisure life. It’s important, and arguably necessary, for us to realize we only have one life and we aren’t acting like it!
Something I’ve been thinking about today is imagining I’m on my death bed: looking back at all the days I had that I fucked around and did nothing. Imagining looking back at my life and realizing how many of those days I spent playing video games, watching tv, or anything that was resistance keeping me from my true goals and how much more meaningful they could have been. There is a time and a place for relaxation and vacations, but is it now? I don’t think so, at least not for me. Maybe in 5 years, or 10 years, but these years are where we all put our heads down and just keep pushing forward. Things have to change, not because of what will happen if they do, but what will remain if they don’t. 😕

Unfu*k Yourself - Gary Bishop
People can only get in your mind if you let them. I read a book a long time ago and I still remember a quote that goes along with this one
Someone was late and apologized to a guy and said “sorry I wasted your time.”
He replied, “no offense, but only I have that power.”
So simple yet so powerful, only you can waste your time, only you can change your mood, only you can effect the results of your life. Never blame anyone for anything 🙌🏼

Have you ever just taken the oneeeeee day off of something you were doing? ——
Maybe you used to run every morning then you took it easy for one day, and then it turned into a week, and so on.
Maybe you pushed something off for a day, something you wanted to start but didn’t yet and now it’s a year later and you still haven’t done it.
I’m certainly guilty of this in my own life, but it’s important to be aware of it. Not just aware, but to do something about it. Recognize how slippery of a slope demotivation is, because one day of pushing something off, can easily be a week/month/ or year of pushing it off without you even really noticing.

Don’t feel like running? We’re thinking about the work it takes and not the calories we’ll burn to help you get the body we want.
Don’t feel like studying? We’re thinking about how it’s sorta boring and not the knowledge we’re going to get out of it.
It Apply’s to anything that produces resistance in your life. Opportunity vs obligation was a concept I heard from an @etthehiphoppreacher speech and I always come back to it. When you don’t feel like doing something, shift your thinking from focusing on the negative part of it, to focusing on the positive part!

We have to be aware of what is going on around us. It’s sooo easy just to become blind to a life we have that lacks improvements. That just treadmills along with no real progress or gain. This is the trap of life, losing the perspective to see we all have so much more to give but not believing in it deep down.
I know all of us have something we know we should be doing but just aren’t, for whatever reason. Maybe it “doesn’t make sense right now” or “not the right time” or it’s “something I’ll get too soon”, no matter what it is, we have to be aware of it. Letting it sit tucked away in the corner or our house is a sad feeling that causes stress every time you think about it, because you know you’re capable of so much more.
If we do the same thing as yesterday we’re stuck and nothing changes. It’s the same life we’re okay with, because if we weren’t okay with it, we wouldn’t be in this life. If nothin else i just want to remind you that that “thing” is still hiding in the corner, trying to go unnoticed to prevent you from being uncomfortable. ——

If you are struggling with staying on track when it comes to anything, find an accountability partner. This goes for: staying on a strict diet, a workout plan/schedule or really anything else.
It’s fairly easy to let ourselves down, it’s not, I hope, easy to let others down. Find someone you respect and trust and tell them “If I don’t follow X, please keep me accountable!” Once you said that to someone, you are sooo much more likely to stay committed. Try it and let me know how it goes!
This can be a little confusing or misunderstood off first glance so let me explain:
Care less and less about more and more isn’t saying “don’t care about things.” It’s saying “don’t care about the things that don’t matter!”
We all do things we wish we didn’t, you know what I’m talking about. Everyone has their own issues so I’ll leave that up to your imagination, but recognize them. Don’t let them just sit in your mind and life… forever going unnoticed. You need to realize and notice they are there, and then give them no significance to your life at all. --
I have struggled with this, and still do so this is a life-long journey. An example that I have used in the past goes with diet cravings. If say, I was on my strict diet and all of a sudden I got a craving for pizza or something. The idea of breaking for pizza comes in my mind, I recognize it’s there, mentally and/or verbally acknowledge it, and then mentally dismiss it and throw it away. You don’t want to just let it sit there. You need to give it your attention and then tell yourself you don’t need it, or don’t really care about it, and overtime you’ll get better and better at it. --
I do this ALLLLLL the time. Like all the time with just about anything. --
If I’m not feeling a workout some days, I understand that I don’t want to and don’t feel like it, but I throw that feeling away and go anyway. It’s hard to do this and I sort of struggle with it in new areas I apply it to , but it’s a lifelong skill/technique that will make you so much more disciplined. --
In some ways, discipline isn’t even having discipline, it’s just knowing the techniques to be disciplined.

I encourage everyone to comment so we can talk! 🤓😇😎✌🏼
When someone talks to me about how strict they have been on their diet or workout regimen, I just don’t care. Don’t get me wrong, I am super excited for them these changes in their lives and to be feeling good about themselves. It’s just, I’ve seen it too many times where people start off strong and slowllyyyyy fall back to their norm.
If you make it to a week, I don’t really care. Once you hit the 12week mark, I start getting really excited because you have broken the failure barrier. It’s now a way of life and it’s only up hill from there.
Week 1 is like when you used to be, or are in, school and you’re like “I’m gonna get ALL A’S this semester.” I bet you mean it, we all do. But then life happens, a party here, friends there, TV here, lazy there and it just falls off.
Don’t fall into the trap of thinking 1 week is enough for it to be lasting change, not even close. Once you get to week 12, let’s talk 😉
JUST DON'T STAY THERE
The amount of times I have fallen off my dreamed path is sick. "It won't happen again," has been an anthem of mine in the past. It is okay to fall down. I truly believe if you stop a workout regimen, healthy diet, or any other way of bettering your life, it's okay. What isn't okay is to stay down. You just have to keep lasting longer and longer each and every attempt. Don't let failure keep you down. Shake it off, get back up, and shoot for better results this time around. Everyone fails, just don't stay down there if you do.
