I believe it is fair to say that EVERYONE is battling something. To some degree, we are ALL facing our very own “Goliath”. However, there seems to be a level of carelessness when it comes to handling the “battles” everyone else is facing.
Are we truly being empathetic towards others?
Lets face it, we are ALL consumed with our own lives and ALL of the complexities it entails. There are so many things going on at once, it is very hard to genuinely invest our time/emotions into other things. I am not sure if it is simply the fast-paced society we live in, or if we have just grown a part from each other.
One thing is for sure, we are all connected to each other to some extent. I believe our personality, compassion, geographical location and some other factors determine the extension. Still, with all these factors acting as glue for our connectivity, we seem to be missing the mark when it comes to being empathetic.
I think it is time to recognize that everyone is going through a rough patch in life. It may not be something you even notice or are aware of, but it’s important to understand this concept at its basic level. Nobody in this world has it “all together” or “all figured” out, even if it appears to be that way. Inside, each individual has challenges they face daily. If we all can just grasp that fact, I believe the world would be a better place.
I don’t want to sound childish or immature, but I seriously believe if we can all briefly get our heads out our own problems for one minute, this idea would be very clear. It’s simply having an awareness and a compassion towards others. What this does is it eliminates the top layer of judgement we place on each other. It’s a forced pause, a thinking halt, and an empathetic appreciation for one another.
So all this “misunderstood” and “anger” may be not as intense as it currently is. Lets try to put ourselves in other peoples shoes and try to understand their perspective. Maybe ask “why” to yourself first and then proceed with your approach. These little pauses WILL make a world of a difference. Let’s be clear, this is not to excuse ANYONE from stupidity or any form of abuse, it is simply an exercise to grow our emotional intelligence.
I say give it a try today. Before you make a judgement on someone, pause and realize they are facing a “Goliath” at some level and they are acting with that on their shoulders.

To Your Massive Success,
There have been so many obstacles that I have been confronted with this year in the pursuit of my dreams. I cannot even make up half the stuff that occurred, but some of the things are ridiculous. I do believe they were a test to see how bad I wanted to accomplish my goals.
We are ALL bombarded with random things that have us whispering “what in the world?!?” under our breath a bunch of times throughout the day. The operation of a single day is so complicated, but what ACTUALLY happens to us is simply relative to how we react to it.
I have come to the STRONG belief that life is simply whatever our opinion of it is…which kind of explains nothing…
Are we dealing with some complicated stuff here? Who knows!?!?
I mean, I have seen people with complete OPPOSITE views on life accomplish GREAT things, but they all had ONE thing in common…
Whatever it was they were pursuing, they wanted to achieve it more than anything. You see there has to be an imbalance when attaining your goals. You have to “sacrifice” other things and solely focus on your dreams if you plan to manifest them as fast as possible.
You have to want to do WHATEVER it takes!
For me, I have sacrificed all kinds of things to manifest my goals. Simply because my goals were MORE important (at the time) than the things I “Sacrificed”.
Attaining your dream life is not going to be easy…
This isn’t some “walk in the park” kind of deal. You are going to have to put in the WORK. And I don’t mind how harsh that sounds as it will only offend the weak.
Do whatever it takes!!!
I am not kidding here. To become the BEST version of yourself and attain GREATNESS, you will have to go through some difficult times. But I promise, the good times are around the corner! The good life is WELL worth the sacrifices, as it pays out for a LIFETIME!
So go out there and do WHATEVER IT TAKES to attain your dreams and live with no regrets doing it! Leave it ALL out on the field! The time is NOW!
I hope this helps and I am wishing you ALL a wonderful Thanksgiving!
