Look Forward, Keep positive

I wrote this when I started college in September of 2009, but I never published it on my blog. Two years later and my resolve is still the same, if not stronger. I’m posting it here with the hope that it will motivate others to press on.

My tenure at University will inevitably be faced with struggles, but I will keep clear sight of my goal and never forget what I want. I always tell people not to ask me if I’m having a good day, because I’m always having a good day, regardless of the circumstances; it’s not a matter of me having a good day, it’s how good my day is, sometimes extremely well, other times not so much but it’s NEVER a bad day.

I was once the physical embodiment of Cynicism, but I got older and realized why waste my time being negative, because all I attracted were negative people… life was depressing. But I soon had my epiphany, and boy did things start changing for me, I started attracting different people into my life and things started to change for me in a positive way, the adage “You are what your think” is definitely true.

Everyone faces struggles, but it’s no reason to become frustrated and call it quits, look forward, plan your next course of action be decisive and do your best!

If you think you dare not, you don’t
If you like to win, but you think you can’t
It is almost certain you won’t.

If you think you’ll lose, you’re lost
For out of the world we find,
Success begins with a person’s will-
It’s all in the state of mind

If you think you are outclassed, you are,
You’ve got to think high to rise.
You’ve got to be sure of yourself before
You can ever win a prize

Life’s battles don’t always go
To the stronger or faster man
But soon or late the one who wins
Is the one WHO THINKS HE CAN! – Think and Grow Rich – Napoleon Hill
