Inspiring Quotes About Life: Only You Can Stop You, Nobody Else

"What's important to you, may not be important to anyone else. If you want something done, do it yourself."

My favorite cousin and I sit around sometimes and talk about people around us. We talk about all sorts of things such as why we are progressing and the people around us are not. We both are huge on quotes but we find ourselves quoting this one quote to each other quite often. Reason being is, it is so easy for us as people to place the blame on someone else or make excuses as to why we didn't complete goals or finish something we started. But the truth is, at the end of the day; the only person that we can blame for not completing anything that we were supposed to complete, is ourselves.

Another fault I see individuals doing, is waiting on others to help start something he or she wants to finish. An example would be, "we will start college together" or "I'll go if you go." SERIOUSLY?! You came in this world by yourself and you will surely leave this world by yourself, so why do you need anybody to start anything? I don't think people are dumb, I just think they do dumb things and waiting on somebody else to help you complete something is considered dumb in my eyes. It's almost like monkey see, monkey do. A better example would be, "if you jump off this 100 ft bridge, I'll jump off of it too."

Some people even go as far as saying, "well I can't do anything unless my mom, dad, aunt, uncle, or whoever takes me and get (fill in the blank)." If you really want something guess what? YOU, not your mom, dad, aunt, uncle, boyfriend but YOU would figure out how to get whatever is holding you back from getting it. An example would be, you have been out of work for a year and you finally get a job interview. Your job interview is 3 miles away. You have no car and your ride just bailed on you. What would you do? Say I can't go because I didn't have a ride or walk to that job interview. If it was me, Tom and Jerry would be on that payment, leaving in enough time to make sure I'm at least 20 minutes early.

At the end of the day, depending on people is never guaranteed. People will let you down time and time again. The worst thing you can do is let yourself down. I find that hard to do when you really want something out of life. There is no way to let yourself down, your inner self just won't allow it. All you can depend on is you. People will bring you down faster than build you up. I'm not trying to sound mean or anything but you can't help anyone until you help yourself, and the only way you can help yourself is to lookout for yourself first. If you want something out of life, stop making excuses as to why you can't get them, have the attitude of I and only I can make this happen. I CAN, I WILL, I MUST!

Be blessed and Much Progress!
