Drive Phase

Right now I am at a point in my life that is full of questions that don’t seem to have answers—or if they do have answers, they are not the answers that I want.  I call it the drive phase. In relation to track and field, the drive phase is one of the most important parts of a sprinters race. WHY? Well yes, you may have not got out the blocks before the person next to you but if you execute your drive phase properly, you can not only catch back up, you can pass the lanes that surround you. Right now I am doing nothing that I love to do. It sucks to admit it, but it’s the truth. I feel like I am failing right now only because I am so ambitious and I only want to see myself do great things. That ambition is a gift and a curse. For example: I wanted nothing more than to go to a great university and to obtain a degree. I went to a great university and I did just that. Yes it too ambition but at the same time on the day that I graduated from that great university I was spending my day dwelling on what I was going to do next not even giving myself that particular day to let it all marinate. As humans we must not ever forget to be grateful for all things that come into our lives—small wins are wins just like big wins are wins.

Fast forward to where I am today: I have goals and dreams. Right now I am not living out my dreams but I am doing what I need to do to one day be able to say that I have accomplished my dreams.. Do you work all day long doing something you don’t feel you are destined to do while still being proactive in pursuing your dream? Or do you just feel under valued and not appreciated? The point of this post is just to tell anyone who may have been feeling down about where they are in this present moment in life that you can do it. Whatever it is I just want you to know that you are not alone. We all go through the phases of life and all of them are not going to be the best moments of our lives. If success was easy to attain, then we would all be rich and famous.

Stay in your drive phase and take all the necessary steps to come out of it on top. Know that you aren’t by yourself in the struggle, as well. There are people near you who are going through the same thing and there is a higher being who sees it all taking form…  Just know that it’s all going to be ok!!!  Whatever you want to happen in your life will happen if you go about it the right way and put your trust in the right being!
