Pursue your dreams
Tupac Shakur was quoted saying "I'm not saying I'm gonna rule the world or change the world, but I guarantee that I will spark the brain that will change the world."
So I'm in my thirties and I grew up listening to Tupac Shakur and many others. While some might think he was arrogant, I think he was pretty inspirational. Now by no means am I saying he was perfect or anything along those lines. He lived a pretty fast & reckless lifestyle and is no longer around because of it. What I am saying is he believed he had the ability to help change the world through the power of his music.
Last night I talked about dreams and stepping out in faith. Living the life you always wanted. You can have the life you've always wanted! You can achieve your dreams! But you must be willing to do the work to get them.
Life can be discouraging sometimes. We feel like we just can't keep trying because we keep coming up against roadblocks. But that's life!!! Martin Luther King Jr believed in equality of all men. No one just laid down and let that happen. I'm sure it was quite discouraging at times. But ultimately he had the courage to pursue his dream.
I know you may be tired. It may seem like life is unfair sometimes and you'll never achieve your dreams. But I challenge you tonight to keep going, even when the road seems checkered by failure. I'll leave you with this.
Life has two rules:
#1 DON'T QUIT!
#2 REMEMBER RULE #1!
Until next time
