What’s Your Inspiration?

What Inspires You?

If you’re on the path to happiness, there are a few things you  have to keep in mind. You can’t be the only one giving yourself motivation or inspiration all the time. Sometimes you have to look elsewhere.  May that be online, friends, books, etc. There are entities out there that will keep you focused and positive. We all need as much help as we can get. I’m reading a book of motivational and inspirational quotes that are really help me stay focused on ME. The quotes will do the same for you. The book is called “Keep Believing in Yourself and Your Dreams.” I’m going to share 4 quotes per post and I’m going to do this until I’m out of quotes.

  • “What you think of yourself is far more important than what others think of you” — I love this quote because it makes you realize it really doesn’t matter who’s hating on you for whatever reason. You are the only one in control of yourself. What you tell yourself is what you act on. If you’re letting the negativity get you down, talk yourself out of it. Make yourself realize you are more important than what others see or say. You have to coach yourself because after a certain age, mommy and daddy can’t tell you what you SHOULD do. God didn’t put you on this earth to live through other people. He put you in charge because he knows you’re capable of doing it for you.
  • “The possibilities are unlimited if you reach beyond what is comfortable”– If you stay idle in your comfort zone, you will never progress. We all like to feel like we’re comfortable with something, but the fact of the matter is, we cannot progress and excel in our careers, relationships,  if we are comfortable with every aspect of them. You’re not being challenged enough if you remain comfortable through it all. After you pass the feeling of uneasiness, you realize the power you actually have. You get to prove to yourself you can do just about anything.
  • “Create your own destiny and success will follow you on your journey” –We are here to find out what it is we are destined for. To some, it’s more obvious than others. For example, I didn’t know what I was destined for until after graduating from college. Some people know before they begin their freshman year at college, but everyone is different! You have to find out, for yourself, what it is you were put on this earth for. Remember, there’s a reason for everything!
  • “Find many interests and pursue them”– This is one of my favorite quotes because I’m doing just that. I’m finding more than one thing that I’m passionate about and I’m pursuing each one as if it’s the only one I have. Because I haven’t always known what I wanted to do, I kept an open mind that someday I would find what makes me happy. After you see yourself progress in more than one industry or interest, you see the power behind your own mind. Until you do it, you have no clue what it’s capable of. And it’s capable of so much!

Hym

Kwame Johnson aka AndImHym or just Hym is a local Nap Town artist who has been making a real music buzz around his community. He won’t be local long– get to know him now so that you know him later. This guy eats, breathes, and sleeps his music. He has put his whole life on hold for his dreams simply because he believes in himself. And just like his friends and fans, he knows it’s just a matter of time before the world knows Hym. Before going solo, he was part of a group — Fly Young  Boys who later were Those Dudes. From then until now, he has done nothing but hustle for his dream. That group began the beginning of Hym, but it certainly did not end there.
