Regardless to what cynical people say or those who give up on something they love, you win 100% of time when you focus 100% of your energy on making the dream work. Those who say they’re just being realistic are only saying that because their scared to get their hopes up just to get a negative out come. Believing that there’s a chance that the idea won’t work is like slashing all 4 of your tires before you even get on the road. Over 90% of the worlds population is cynical about their own dreams, and as a result, they settle for what’s safe…be the less than 10% that actually wins. Expect to win, play to win and don’t stop until you win.
If this post has inspired you in anyway, please spread the positive vibes, reblog and share where ever you see fit. Smile for me!

As you can see, I have a serious case of the what ifs.
It occurred to me, I have no idea what will happen just like I didn’t see this situation coming. Maybe she’ll go to someone like me who will love her so much she’ll become a better…

Having faith that the bad times will pass and good is just around the corner is essential to success.
I think I chose the wrong message in my last post. I previously said that if there’s one key takeaway a reader can take from my blog, it’s that faith keeps you together in relationships. But what about people who are single? What about those who had their true soulmate pass away early in their relationship? I don’t profess to even know an ounce of how to act in those circumstances.
The right single message from my blog is actually this: Have faith and be grateful. And it applies to everyone.
We live in the era of social media where our newsfeed are adorned with happy famillies with beautiful sun-kissed children playing by the beach and perfect no-filter vacation shots taken at the right angle of various global attractions. Haplessly we scroll and scroll with jealousy, bitch to others and furiously unfollowing (or even worse, becoming a…
