Own Your Truth: Monday Morning Inspiration April 23, 2018

Posted Monday, April 23, 2018, at 10:22 AM

Do you love yourself enough, to tell the truth? I mean really tell the truth. Are you willing to do what is necessary to make the rest of your life the best of your life? Are you tired of not getting results, and as “ET” says do you want to succeed as bad as you want to breathe? If your answers to these questions are yes that is the first step. Your next step is to take action. Don’t talk about it be about it. You must be intentional, deliberate and strategic when you act. Greatness is upon and unless you act the greatness within remains dormant. What truths need to be told for you to make adjustments to change your life? Excuses are for losers, and you are not a loser.

Go to the mirror right now, look at yourself and tell the truth. Honesty is the best policy, and while what you say may not be what you want to hear, say it anyway. It is time out for being nice and stroking your ego. You will never be where you want to be by deceiving yourself. The journey that lies ahead requires you to be steadfast, vigilant, and optimistic. Realize there will be turbulence along the way. Everything you need is within arm’s reach. When it gets tough push forward. When you want to quit grind harder. When your spirit worries pray louder. You have got to taste it, feel it, believe it and only then will you achieve it.

Love yourself enough to do what is in the best interest of you. Yes, love yourself. Loving yourself is not bad. Loving yourself is honoring you. Loving yourself is respecting you. Loving yourself is food for the soul. When you love you everything is aligned. When you love you, you will not put others before you. When you love you, you experience happiness and peace. Embrace your truth because it is your truth. Telling yourself, the truth will change your life. It will open closed doors. It will provide you with opportunities you never knew you had. It will open your eyes to your purpose. Tell yourself the truth and live your life, because after all, that is the only life you can live.
