So, the other day I saw a dead animal (I never figured out what it was) in my backyard and it is not the first one. So, these animals just decide to give up on life right in my backyard huh? I say to myself, and then it got me thinking. It was funny in a sense to me, because I feel that individuals sometimes, stop in their tracks and give up on their dreams and aspirations versus pushing further or avoiding “eating the bait” that has been “set” for them. Now, I am sure you’re wondering, “How the hell is she relating rodents (or whatever it was) dying in her yard, to humans giving up on their dreams?” Well, think about the traps that we as humans fall into and stop our journey. There are poisonous people and dream killers surrounding us every day. There are people who don’t want to see you succeed and make it to the next level. How about you set some traps and get rid of them! BE GONE!!! I said that in my Martin voice. These individuals need to be in their own world because mine just ain’t for them!
If there is something that you are striving for, don’t allow distractions or the challenge of that something, come in your way. Nothing we do comes easy and there are times when you may have to go to the left, down two blocks and then back again, just to get to what you thought was right in front of you. Giving up is easy! It’s very easy…but is that what you truly want? Don’t allow what “looks good” to distract you from the intended goal(s). Leave that “bait” right where it is! Hop, skip or jump over it. Don’t become a dead rodent!
