The Art Of Silence
If you're ever going to be successful in life, you have to learn how to keep a secret. Every goal, every dream, and every move you make doesn't need to be broadcasted! There are some things that should be kept within. Yes, I know you have a BFF (Best Friend Forever). Indeed, you have family members that love you. Certainly, you have people that care about you, but I am holding true to the fact of keeping some things to yourself. Certain dreams require it!
Some people can't think for themselves, so they will try to sabotage your plans. Do you know people will try to create Nightmares for your Dreams? Everyone isn't in your corner. Then, there are some who love you so much, they don't want you to take the risk that comes along with fulfilling your dreams. Listen, your dream is your dream, and it is given to you for a reason!
You have to move in silence and trust GOD to bring your dream to fruition. In order to move in silence, you have to become one with the dream. Becoming one with the dream puts you in the mindset of the dream. If you are in the mindset of the dream, you will push yourself to bring the dream to life. You will give it life. You can't bring it to life with other people breathing their stinky breath on it..lol.
Perhaps, you have a dream. Now is the time for you to move in silence, and pursue the dream. Don't talk about it....be about it! Move with POWER and move IN POWER. Don't worry about what everyone else is doing. Worry about what you are doing. Loose lips sink ships, so move quietly...NOW!

Know When To Fold
Many years ago, my cousin built a website for me. It was done as a gesture, because he believed in me and wanted to see me prosper. At the time, I had a lot going on, and my mind got away from it. So, for years, I was paying hundreds of dollars to maintain it. I had to pay the hosting site; and, in my ignorance, every time I called they persuaded me into adding another feature. The money began to add up quick!
It began to weigh on me, because for years, I was paying to maintain something that wasn't a benefit; but, I felt obligated to maintain. There were so many reasons I felt obligated to maintain the website, yet none of them could equal the amount of time, money, and mental space that was being withdrawn. It wasn't that I didn't want it to work, because I did want it work. The fact of them matter is....IT WASN'T WORKING.
Sometimes, in life, we want to hold on to people, places, and things that we can't maintain in the present moment or if ever. In this particular case. it wasn't the right time. I held on to it for 10 years, and one day it crashed. I had debated on letting it go for years, but I didn't have the guts to; so, it had to let me go. You can't be mad if IT (whatever your it is) let's you go! You have to know when to Fold and keep it moving.
"Know when to fold", is a saying used when playing poker. It means to know when your cards are good enough to play or not good enough to play. You have to be willing to drop out of the hand and fold. I'm hear to tell you that it's okay to drop your hand, because there is a better hand waiting. I'm here to tell you, "Don't let your ego be the reason you stay in something that's taking Withdraws and not adding any Positive Deposit!"
You can always get another hand. Positive outcomes come in time and you can't force them. Unfortunately, when the website was built, it wasn't my time. Now, I have another website. The old one crashed. Don't be mad if it doesn't workout, because something better is going to come along and workout in your favor. Let whatever fold, so something better can come. You Got This!
