What do you when no one is watching? It truly matters and I guarantee you, you’ll be doing it when everyone else is watching. My goal has always been that if there is anyone who can turn things around, change my world, affect lives positively, is ME. If I can get through to doing things that I hate to do, I believe on the other side is greatness I have never imagined. Would it suck? Definitely. Would it hurt? Yes, it would. But it would come out the other side where I’m coasting.
My glory doesn’t happen in front of a crowd, it doesn’t happen in a stadium, cinema or stage. There are no medals handed out trust me. It happens in the darkness of the early morning, in solitude where I try and try again, with everything I have to be the best that I can possibly be, better than i was yesterday. Better than people thought i could ever be, better than i thought i could be, and claim one victory that no one could ever take away from me ever.
The victory that is earned every single day. The victory of determination, will, and discipline. A victory achieved because I will not stop. Its the character of who you are. It’s not the title that makes you, it’s not the success that makes you. The character defines the success and the failures and everything else starts from there. The championship isn’t won in a theatre or the arena, they’re won in thousands of hour in the training room, on your knees when you pray, and the 5 AM runs when everyone else is sleeping, that’s when its won.
How you hold yourself up in the small things in life builds the character winning blocks of the things that you’re and will be remembered for. Do the job right or don’t do it all. Its how you look at something if your name is attached to it that you do it right and apply the best of your ability.
What if? What if I can pull this off? I remember the early days of my career, I attended an interview and during the course of the interview, the lady said to me, ” There are only three spots left and they’ve been taken. You are late”. I looked at the lady boldly and said, ” What if I am the fourth? She looked at me and said, ” So much boldness! We can work something out”. I got the job and learned a lot from there before moving on.
It’s in the “what if’s” that we can pull off a glorious miracle. What if I can become someone that no one thinks I can be? You have to believe in one thing and that’s in the abilities that God has deposited inside of you, for you to find the greatness in yourself. You’re not going to find it by looking in a book or by reading this post of mine. I may give you the sparks but you’ve got to go inside of yourself to find it and trust God to open your eyes to see it and help you walk through it.
What do you do when no one else is watching?
Love you guys.
Blessings and Love
