Daily Inspiration from HUSL Today

GREAT morning beautiful people! Happy Hump Day!!

"There is no such thing as can't, only won't. If you're qualified, all it takes is a burning desire to accomplish, to make a change. Go forward, go backward. Whatever it takes! But you can't blame other people or society in general. It all comes from your mind. When we do the impossible we realize we are special people." --Jan Ashford

Have you ever accomplished something others said you couldn't and SHOCKED yourself?  OR better yet, have you ever accomplished something that along the way you doubted whether it could be done? If your answer to these questions is negative, you arent pushing yourself enough (or maybe you arent easily amused). If your answers are in the affirmative then I would say you are on the right path or you're very sure of yourself. There is a special satisfaction that comes from pushing yourself an extra mile.  There is much to be said about pushing your limits physically and mentally and the satisfaction that comes form doing so.

I know many of you made "New Year's Resolutions" and some of you may have already given up on them. You may have resolved to save money but reverted to your old ways and taken advantage of all the MLK day sales. You may have resolved to lose weight or adopt a healthier lifestyle but you fell prey to restaurant week specials. What you have done is fallen off of the path, nothing more. Do not count these shortcomings as failures. No man is an island. If you have trouble sticking to your resolutions, break them down and turn them into more obtainable short term goals. Hence, instead of saying you will eat healthier, say you will eat 2 pieces of fruit a day. Instead of saying you will save thousands of dollars, save a few dollars a day by bringing your lunch twice a week and packing snacks. Build upon your short term goals and increase your goals incrementally until you get where you would like to be. Give yourself a new timeline and do your best to stick to it. Always remember, God doesnt always call the qualified, he qualifies the called. With that said, you may have been placed in a situation where you do not believe you can finish what you started but there is ALWAYS a way. You may not finish exactly how you planned, but you will never know what you are capable of if you quit prematurely. You do not know everything about everything and you are not expected to. When it appears you have reached a dead end, take a moment to assess the situation. Go backwards and retrace your steps to see where you may have slipped up. Do not be afraid to admit your mistakes, its in our nature to make them! In fact I encourage all of you to actively seek out blotches in your track record so you can turn them into a lesson learned.

Today's song choice: Whitney Houston & Mariah Carey-When you Believe.


P.S. Excuse me if I sound a little bit "salty" today. I got word of a visit from Michelle Obama at our school today, swindled my way into a ticket and then I couldnt get out of work...yep I'm salty.
