You see this five letter word called SHAME, she has kept many glued to mediocrity.
She has kept people from chasing their passion like a rabid dog.
She has tied many to shackles of average, those who know they are beyond average.
You see shame, she wears her name shamelessly, yet, we wear her shamefully, letting her dictate how we live our lives.
We let her dictate the tune we dance to.
We let her sound the alarm for when we should wake up if at all she sounds it at all.
We let her arrogantly decide who we are, what we are capable of and what we should be ashamed of claiming we are.
You see, SHAME, by all means, dump her.
She swore an oath with her legion, never to let you soar, so she fights desperately to cut your wings,
You, yes you, you should be soaring, not playing around with chickens (when you are freaking destined eagle)
Yeah, I know some people have decided to be chickens, this post is not about them.
This post has its audience, and deep down, they know themselves.
SHAME comes in various shades,
SHAME arises with varying tides,
SHAME blooms while you cower in her.
What’s the story?
What’s the excuse?
What’s the reason?
Is it self-doubt?
Is it family?
Is it peer pressure?
Is it fear?
Is it your own self-limiting mindset?
Whatever it is, DUMP HER.
For the next level you desire, there are people who may have gone on that journey, STALK THEM SECRETLY if you have to.
REACH THEM OUT THEM.
If the path you are destined for has never been TOWED, WALKED OR VENTURED into, that’s your blue ocean strategy right there. Carve it.
Build the business plan. Watch the world adjust.
BE THE YOU YOU WERE MADE TO BE.
BUILD YOUR OWN YOUNIVERSE (Let me borrow this new word from Neofloetry DaWina Scriblisis)
If you need assistance on how to begin, DROP A COMMENT.
REMEMBER, SHAME HAS NOTHING ON YOUR DREAM.
YOUR DREAM IS LEGITIMATE.
IT IS LEGAL.
