What are you willing to leave behind to move forward?

What are you willing to leave behind to move forward?

Wow… it was great speech I heard last week at a leadership conference from Pastor Kion Henderson. It was as if he knew what I was going through and my friend Omar even said “Well isn’t that confirmation for you”

Yes, these last few weeks I’ve wrote about moving on, facing your fears and determination. I had to be obedient and let go of someone so that I will able to find what is truly for me.

It’s been a struggle as I didn’t want to, I wanted my cake and eat it too but I knew to move on, I had to let go and this was just the conformation I needed to hear once again.

I loved what else he had to say:
You got to lead while you bleed…
No matter how bad your hurting, you have to keep leading.

Intolence is the only way to grow…
You have to be sick and tired of being sick and tired to move on, to grow.

Your affection is your ammunition to change, to move on, to grow.
Your pain gives you purpose, to keep going.

See some of your losses are better than some of your gains. Sometimes you have to let go, let go of people holding you back, people that don’t believe in your dreams, people that aren’t going to the same places you want to go.
It may be relationships, like it was for me I wanted something he didn’t. I couldn’t wait around to see if he would change his mind, I know what I want and the one thing I learned is life is too short to waste time, so I had to move on.

I’ve lost friends who weren’t rowing my boat but were drilling holes while I was rowing. I don’t have time for fake friends, I have big plans either your with me or your gone. Sorry if that sounds harsh but again I wasted to much time trying to make people happy who will never be happy with themselves.

See these are lessons we all need to learn and then move on from and if you are a little slow like me and need the lesson a few times, it’s okay as long as you finally get it.

It doesn’t matter if no one believes in your dreams, if people laugh at you, people laughed at Colonel Sanders, said he was too old to start a business. What about Oprah, she was poor, black and a women, how could she ever end up being the richest women in the world?
What about Edison, when he failed 990 times before he got it right with the light bulb, how many people do you think laughed at him?
How many of you would even keep going after try number 10 or 20? How many would listen to the nay sayers? And quit?

No, you have to let them go, you know the big picture, even if no one else can see it, you see it. It’s up to you to listen to the signs, to ask for help, to keep learning, keep growing, to cut the dead weight off and keep persevering.

I am no smarter than anyone, I am just like you, I have had hardships, heartbreak, I had had friends backstab me, I’ve been knocked down, I have hit rock bottom not once but twice. The only difference is I refuse to give up, I refuse to let go of my dreams, I refuse to take shit anymore. I know what I want and where I am going and either you with me or get the hell out of my way, I don’t have time for you.

Get tough, stand tall, tell the haters, keep hating, speak up loud and proud
“I am still going to do me and you do you, doesn’t matter what you think or say”

So today my friends remember, you can do anything you set your mind to, listen for the messages, learn, grow and accept change. Take your sorrows, your disappointments, your heartbreak and turn them into fuel, to make you stronger, smarter and more determined to get there.
And then ask yourself how bad do you want this? And what are you willing to leave behind to move forward?

“Be the change you want to see”

“And just when the caterpillar thought his life over…he turned into a beautiful butterfly”
