"I remember a particular point in my life where I was paralyzed by everyday decisions, such as what I wanted to wear or what my twitter avatar should be. I wanted to be "good" or "cool" enough to fit the preferences of the people around me. Mad stressful. It wasa huge weight, and no way a young boss in the making to live. I stopped all that. There's a fine line between wanting to make a good impression and becominga slave to the opinions of others. Y'all dont like me? Cool. I'm true to myself. Life is easier." "I wish that Chick Fil A would be open every Sunday, and that I had never been forced to play clarinet in band during high school. Unfortunately, things like that are out of my control. I can't change them. I find solace by waiting until Monday to purchase multiple spicy chicken sandwhiches, and taking charge of the things that I can control in the meantime. My habits, my thoughts, and my actions, for example. I can take action on a consistent basis and change my whole life. The obstacles will always be there, but they won;t matter in the end." "My wifi is too slow. My dog peed on my computer, so I can't type anymore. I could start that project, but I have plans to watch every single episode of Bob's Burgers instead. These statements all have some degree of truth to them. They're also cop-outs. Excuses. They're excellent for eliminating guilt, but terrible for facililating the accomplishment of things that matter, such as making progress and leveling up. Sometimes, we resort to excuses. The most productive, successful people avoid leaning on them as often as possible. Don't be afraid to hold yourself accountable. You have barriers to break." -"Keep It 100", Michell C. Clark
"Another work day moring has arrived. You still feel exhausted when your alarm clock goes off. You blink a few times. Suddenly, another hour has magically flown by and you're still in bed. You finally arrive at the office- flustered, tired, and without a cell phone charger. What can you even do at this point? Laugh. Laugh at yourself. Laugh at your coworker with the ashy elbows. Find a way to keep it moving, and recognize that the day is still young. There's plenty of time to turn the day back around, but that's up to you. Go propser." "You ever tired of feeling like you know exactly how your day will go before it even starts? Sometimes a daily routine can start to feel like a trap. We get so comfortable with our habits that we let them steal our sense of adventure. Before you know it, you're falling alseep at work, and probably being made into a meme. Circumstances can be limiting, but we can't let them become definite. MAybe you want to change your whole life. MAybe you just want to switch up a few small things. Either way, it's time to get started. Now." "Do you know how many times I've wanted to put a crying Jordan face on a picture of Jesus? Why would God allow me to go throguh some of the difficulties that I've faced? I ask this question often. Anger. COnfusion. Disappointment. These emotions are prevalent during life's darkest moments. We don't have the capacity to understand why our lives turn out the way they do. We dont need to. We don;t have to understand why everythign in life happens the way it does if we truly trust that God is working eberything out for the greater good." - "Keep It 100" Michell C. Clark
"Every single, amazing accomplishment started of a dream in someone's head, without any real life manifestation. Pioneers aren't given a clear road nap with all of the keys to success. If you have exceptional goals, they'll seem strange, difficult, or inconceivable to most people. Most people don't have the mentality necessary to achieve them; it just means you have to remain steadfast. You have to believe in yourself and your ability to accompish your goals, just like the Toon Squad believed in Michael Jordan's ability to help them defeat the Monstars." "A big part of our culture is obsessed with achievements, status, wealth, and progression. We're overexposed to news in regards tot the iincredibly wealthy and famous, to the point that it can make us feel inadequate if we're notcareful to keep things in perspective. many of us seek to constantly be productive, but what we forget is that it's important to feel peace and happiness in the present. There will always be improvements to be made. Find time to kick back and relax a bit, even if your to-do list is out of contol and your hairline ain't crispy." "No matter how throughly I plan for tomorroe, I still don't know what will happen. I know which three songs I'll hear on the radio all day, but that's it. What matters is that I understand that my lack of ability to predict the details of my day doesn;t correlate with the lack of ability to determine my direction over time. The speed bumps will come. So will the opportunites. Remain level headed as the cycle continues to repaet itself. Interpret evry day you spend on this Earth as a blessing, and it becomes easier to roll with the punches." - "Keep It 100" Michell C. Clark
