I dare you To forgive the person that hurt you.
I dare you To succeed at all that you set your hands to. You can be one of the few who will face life courageously, ready to strike deep into the heart of anything that stands between who you are and who you desire to be. The strength to fight lies deep within you. The warrior within you is only asleep. When you find that strength, when you allow the warrior within to be awaken, you will never be the same. When you allow that spark of hope within you begin to stir, it is then that you will feel that spark turn into a fire that you will feel in the deepest part of you soul. A fire that burns deep within your bones, it will change every part of who you are. You will no longer have to “survive” life, you will begin to ” Live ” it will take courage to let this urge possess you.
Everywhere you look, every corner you turn, every familiar face is telling you that you can’t do it, telling you that you will never rise above, someone trying to convince you to give up because you will never become more than what you are now. Don’t Listen!!!! Refuse to be satisfied with who you are! You have the right and the ability to fulfill the dreams that you once held close to your heart. You can make those dreams a reality. We each have special talents buried within ourselves. The reason the talents lie buried is that we, as women, have lost the courage to dig them up and use them. I challenge you to look within, find your talents, your passions. I challenge you to let them come alive within you again.
I dare you to breathe life into them. The only reason you are not the person you should be is because you don’t dare to be! You have settled, you have become content with life, you have lost hope as you watch life pass you by, you have allowed the demons of your past to hold you back, You have begun a walk down a road of regret but the good news is that you don’t have to take that road. You can change your path, you can choose a different journey. It is necessary to agree that living aggressively changes the complexion of life. So many are prey to fear, you fear losing your job, you fear sickness and hard times, you fear failure, you fear your past. But, remember, courage is not the absence of fear, it is the conquest of it. When you will dare to attack it will be then that you will master your fears. And why dare? Because unless you dare, you can not win. Deep down in every heart is the desire to be somebody, to get somewhere in life, to be able to look back and know that you have done something wonderful. But so often we sit waiting for the opportunity, opportunity does not come to those who wait, they are captured by those who attack.
You need to think bigger, act bigger, to become bigger. You have the ability to do things, if you know where you are going. The world makes way for a man who knows his destination. True, moments of weakness and depression are going to assail you. But that is the time for battle, that is the time where you stand tall and refuse to be taken down. Refuse to allow weakness to overcome you and choose to take your eyes off the circumstance, so that depression can not take form in your mind. You have a body, a brain, a heart and a soul — these are your living tools. To use them is not a task. It is a golden opportunity. To find new capacities within you is not robbing you of any pleasure, it is bringing you new treasures in every waking hour. It is helping you touch life at all angles, absorb strength from all contacts, pour out power on all fronts. The more you pour out, the more you will find to pour.
The more of life’s treasures you keep to yourself, the less you have. The more you share with others, the more you will have yourself. One of life’s greatest rules is this: The more you give, the more you get. One enkindled spirit can set hundreds on fire. We have all had life go wrong for us, whether it was a consequence of our own doing, or a hand that life unfairly dealt us. But we have a choice on how we recover.
There is nothing in life that is too hard to change, the question is and always will be ” How bad do I want change? ”
I challenge you to do an inventory within yourself, be honest with yourself when no one is around and allow yourself to ponder this question. If you truly want it bad enough, you will find the strength to endure until the end. Determine where you are going, have your destination in sight and allow nothing to stand between where you are now and where you are headed. I dare you To decide at this very moment, that your life will never be the same.
