In time of difficulties...

“In time of difficulties, we must not lose sight of our achievements.” - Mao Tse-Tung
There are times in life where we must all do some self evaluation.  Luckily for me, I have friends, family, and a strong team of mentors that like to throw in there two senses daily.  This is definitely a positive factor in my life, but if misinterpreted, can become a double edged sword.  Time and time again, especially during the holidays, I am lectured on how to improve and live my life.  From love to finance, the circle of influence that I surround myself correlates my life with their personal ideologies and philosophies.  In doing so, without notice, they are professing ways for me to improve my life, by living the life that they always wanted.  This is a very interesting parable, that if MISINTERPRETED, can act as poison.

Through the years, I have learned to appreciate the fact that I am different.  Different in the sense of, drive, beliefs, ideologies, philosophies, etc.   Through discipline, pain, and suffering, I have trained my mind to fight for what I believe in.  There are times when the masses are running with the herd, and that’s where my training and courage kicks in to high gear.  I too have doubts some times, but like Mao Tse Tung states, “In time of difficulties, we must not lose sight of our achievements.” 

Luckily, and with God’s help, I have had the pleasure to conquer several achievements.  Sometimes, I am to busy fighting life’s War, that I forget about all the small battles that I have fought and won.   Thankfully, I am blessed to say that I have good friends to remind me of those conquests.  To those select few, THANK YOU!
