Do you have a choice about the direction your life is going? Are you dragging your feet everyday, hoping and praying to find your way to a brighter day?

Well, its time to pick up your damn feet! I titled this blog in such a mysterious way because it’s truly meant to inspire you to get up and stop doubting yourself. The year 2020 has proven to the entire world that no one knows what tomorrow may bring. Therefore, it has never been a better time than now to release all of your self doubt. The year 2020 has proven that it takes a generous amount of faith in action and a lot of adaptation to strive past our new normal. I know it sounds simple but staying motivated is a challenge. Today I just hope to motivate you, to move your damn feet from a spot of doubt and self inflicted negativity. For example,  if you’ve been on the same job for 5 years with a lack of growth in pay and job title, maybe it’s time to move your damn feet. This applies to any area of life including relationships, job, school opportunities, weight loss goals, etc.

 What exactly do I mean by moving your damn feet? Now, I know some people who are cool sailing being mediocre and never desiring to elevate their life to the fullest potential. These are the folks who have yet to find their purpose and don’t really care. They don’t aspire to contribute anything to the greater good. So this blog ain’t for those folks. But if you’re like me and you just can’t sleep because you feel the pinned up energy within you, driving you towards your purpose, then continue reading. I don’t care what excuse you could come up with as to why things aren’t working for you, now is the time to let it go. Now is the time to embark on a journey towards your purpose fulfilled life. If you were looking for a sign, then this is your sign. So many of us need encouragement and inspiration but we don’t even know how to go about obtaining it. 

Your potential is limitless. So don’t limit yourself, don’t limit your dreams, don’t limit your vision, and for sure, don’t limit your happiness.

The easiest way to be inspired when life kicks you where it hurts is to get up. Now open your eyes, think about your mission, and focus on your purpose. I realized that my purpose is to inspire others because I came from a place that was very, very dark in my eyes. My testimony could help someone fight for their dreams even in the darkness. It took me a very long time to get out of the shadow of gray clouds that consumed me. I found myself dreaming but also I found myself miserable. So If you want to become more solid and aim for more purpose, keep going!  The first step is just to believe in yourself. So from this day forward I want you to believe in yourself come hell and high water. I too suffer from self doubt sometimes when I set goals that seem too ambitious. It seems like maybe… I’m dreaming a little bit too big. Like maybe… I don’t have enough faith in the things that I want to achieve. But I am here to tell you today, remove the self doubt from every inch of your spirit. It does not belong there. What belongs in your spirit?  A strategy to propel you forward is what you need. How do you plan to make everything that you desire come into your environment? You don’t have to deal with stressing every day, living check to check, settling for less, not knowing what you’re gonna do about the future. Actually you can and will have better. 

Many people sell themselves short because they have a fear or a complex about the consequences of failure. Failure stops most people from even trying. They won’t ever attempt to gain new knowledge, use a computer, learn a new skill, go on a vacation, or even take a plane ride because of fear. Fear should have no control over your destiny. Your potential is limitless. So don’t limit yourself, don’t limit your dreams, don’t limit your vision, and for sure, don’t limit your happiness. Dream bigger not smaller. 

As we move forward in the month of September, mental health is going to be key. The focus is elevator mode. We are going up from here. Every day and every second of your life may not be a happy moment, it may be very stressful but channel the stress.  Think of strategies that help you view life in a more positive perspective. Why?  Because you deserve positivity. You deserve to be happy. You deserve to live your best life. And more importantly, you deserve to obtain every blessing God has planned for you this year. 

If you’re still thinking , “ I don’t even deserve it,” you’re holding yourself back. Attaching negative feelings and negative people, or the past to your present is worthless. So today, move your damn feet out of the same spot. That’s the point! Move your feet to a place where you feel happy.  Find a place where you feel comfortable enough to grow. Please don’t spend any more time in 2020 and beyond chasing that which makes you feel less than your worth. And you have to know your worth in order to believe in yourself. Believe that you’re priceless. You’re beautiful, you’re intelligent and you can accomplish anything that you put your mind to. 

In this season, as we wrap up 2020, let’s attract fruitfulness into our life and home. This is the season of blessings so be sure to plant good seeds. Plant them deep, cover them with dirt and provide plenty of water. Be patient, they will start growing. Once they start growing don’t forget to keep it going. Even when you get flowers growing in your garden, stay motivated, keep watering them. These are your new seeds of hope. After today I would like to witness more walkers,  runners, and chasers on the way to their dream. This is Dr. Shon checking out. Thank you for reading my blog. 

I send love to all of my readers in the United States, Belgium, France, Germany, Nigeria, and Sweden. We’re going global. Share this blog to your family and friends to spread inspiration. King and Queen Squad, have a happy, happy blessed day and until the next blog… Peace ✌🏾
