My Journey has been long since I started improving myself and achieving my goals for freedom, 4 years now and counting, but It’s all been worth it. As the party ceases, everybody is relaxed in the park looking for the sunrise. Everybody has a meaning for the first sunrise of the year, not me. For me it’s only another day, however it marks the day where “vacation is over” and the hustle begins.
I watch the medallion I got from one of my first mastermind groups. I remember the goals I set and the sacrifices I’ve made, the hard work I’ve put in, the friends I’ve lost, the problems I overcame and how it made me strong, stronger than any day before. I see the couples there loving each other, and notice how I would have felt alone before any of this, not this time. I knew I took a harder path than most people, but I have the certainty that it’s going to end much more better than before.
I see the light, determined to step up, the break is over, the hustle begins, the hustle to automate everything, to let things take care by themselves. This year is the year where I will reap all the benefits from the previous years. I know I will lose some people on the way. I know I will gain other awesome people more. And so it’s life. Now I’m unafraid of problems, because I trust myself, I trust my skills, I know what I’m capable of. As the saying goes, the bird does not fear the branch breaking away, not because of the trust on the branch, but because of the trust in his wings.
No more living on the limits most people have, no more feeling insecure, no more surviving, but it’s time for me to live my full potential. I know what I have to do. Everybody starts getting up to go to their houses and sleep, tired, not me. I’m burning with determination. I don’t feel tired. I just want to get things done. This is my life, this is my year, I’ve built the base, now it’s time to reach my goal fully, and it’s finally at hand. It’s time to take it.
