Some random thoughts I have had regarding this project and the journey to completing this mixtape/album combo series. It's been quite the change from my normal mode, and I wanted to share my thoughts with y'all on this.
It's not about the goal; rather, it's about the JOURNEY and LESSONS along the pathway TOWARDS that goal that create VALUE and CHARACTER in our lives.
In my highest of moments, I learn the most about my dreams; in my lowest of moments, I learn the most about my determination. The moments in between I look back on the journey and realize how important BOTH parts of the journey are to my goals. #embracethejourney #livewithnoregrets #i360jewels
The Journey of Life is a PERPETUAL LESSON being learned EACH MOMENT that passes by. SEIZE these moments and LEARN THE LESSONS!
Life has ALWAYS been about PUSHING FORWARD and MAKING SACRIFICES. Those who ATTEMPT to avoid EITHER FORCE are merely fighting THEIR OWN NATURAL PROGRESSION and blocking THEIR OWN PATHS.
Even a GREAT IDEA has NO VALUE in itself unless PROPER EFFORT is applied to it; but effort ALONE does not QUALIFY the VALUE of that idea without a STRONG WILL to bear the JOURNEY towards the FRUITS of that idea becoming a REALITY.
There are NO DREAMS worth the price of a man's HONOR and INTEGRITY, but there is no life WORTH the journey WITHOUT A DREAM. Balance the beams of NECESSITY and guard WISELY the UNDISCIPLINED thoughts of AMBITION.
What matters MOST is your INTENTIONS! If you're intention is WRONG, your outcome will NOT REMAIN POSITIVE; but if your intention is GOOD and PURE, the outcome will ALSO be GOOD even when the journey is MORE DIFFICULT because it is DIRECTLY CONNECTED with how well you hold up to the CHALLENGES.
There is an INVALUABLE LESSON in going through a STRUGGLE to ACHIEVE your DREAMS & GOALS. Don't look just at the END GOAL, but APPRECIATE THE JOURNEY even when it's not the most JOYFUL ONE.
Circumstances will ALWAYS exist, so why do we allow them to DEFINE THE JOURNEY towards our GOALS? The REAL TRUTH is that these circumstances exist SIMPLY to test our TENACITY and WILL in pursuing those things we CLAIM to LOVE in life.
