go all the damn way

i’ve long since been authoring a book of masterpieces.
the pages are smothered with everything that excites my soul – my life's biggest dreams and most audacious goals.
and yet, these desires only soar between a restrictive binding.
perhaps you understand where i'm at.
. . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . .
why do the juiciest pieces of us remain hidden?
lack of experience? fear? shaken confidence? pathetic commitment? fill in your unique excuse {here}.

it’s the same old deadbeat story: living a life flying drastically below your ultimate. and dammit, this has got to stop.

calm, but anxious. frightened, but eager.
are you with me so far?

this is what it means to be ripe.
. . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . .
you can only ignore your truth for so long until your defiant actions cripple you and drain you.
and yes, i know this is a sensitive subject for you.

but there's only one way to live the life you've imagined. it's raw and blunt and it goes like this:

put up a fucking fight 
for what you are, 
for what you love,
for what you want,
for why you’re here – 
and go like hell.

stop whispering empty promises to yourself, and quit filling optimistic conversations with words that are deprived of any real intention. there has never been any time for such pointless rhetoric.

you must ask yourself: am i fulfilling my purpose? realizing my worth? or are you settling for everything – just sitting on this mountain of potential too afraid to step out into your limelight?
. . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . .
devote yourself to your calling.
struggle with it. conquer it. outperform yourself.

when it comes to this one life you’ve been handed, you have to want it more than it scares you.
go all the damn way for once.
and, for once, bona fide, blow your own damn mind.
