Success 

The most unsuccessful thing we did to ourselves Was make money a requirement for success,
Because it has people chasing fake dreams While their real ones they suppress;
Which causes a lot of unhappy people And a world full of stress.
Why? All so that we can step out in that we can step out in that twelve thousand dollars dress To socialize with people we have to put a mask on to impress?
Rappers, ballers, or the million dollar artist Leave the only scapegoat for the classroom kids who weren’t the smartest.
So instead of being here to express our God given purpose, We chase a mad made dream that we know is gonna hurt us
Money money won’t get you too far, get you too far Unless you’re flying in a jet or driving your new Rolls Royce car,
But, see, that’s physically speaking and physical strength Will never be enough to carry you the length.
So chase your TRUE passions, whatever they may be Because the REAL definition of success is when your heart is happy. _a.c. 

Our Plan 

“This wasn’t supposed to be part of my plan.” “I never planned for this to happen.” “This was never my plan.” These are the phrases spoken by 100% of the population at some point in time. We hear it from everyone. We say it ourselves. Because we think our plans are actually ours to make. But there not! Our plans are not ours to plan. They’re ours to live! And that’s a very important distinction to understand. We did not create the universe. We did not create ourselves. We did not create our bodies or any of the things needed to sustain them. We did not create our purpose. Our passion. Our dreams. We have created nothing of which we think we should control! And yet we have created everything [what we do each day, how we react to what happens to us, our mindset, our way of thinking] of which we think we have no control of! How do you know? How do you know you weren’t supposed to face adversity in life? How do you know you weren’t supposed to face failure? Disappointment? How do you know you were supposed to have a perfect life? That everyone should always agree with you? Like you? How do you know you were never supposed to get knocked down? Sometimes over and over again? To be challenged in life? How do you know everything was supposed to be handed to you? That you were supposed to succeed at everything in life? You don’t! Because our plans is not ours to plan! It’s only ours to live! And just maybe the very things you want are located inside of the very situations you think shouldn’t be a part of your life. But you will never ever discover them if you continue to wake up each day and put blame on God. On your surroundings. On the people around you. On your lack of growth. God did not fill your heart sadness or your mind with doubt. He did not make you ungrateful. He did not place you in a position of failure and tell you that was your permanent home! He did not make you unwilling. God never placed you in a comfort zone and told you to stay forever! He did not place you in an unhappy relationship and tell you you can’t make it better! You did that to yourself! We do these things to ourselves day after day. And then all of a sudden a lifetime has passed us by and we have so very little to show for it. We all have the most amazing ability to wake up each day and change our circumstances. To better our situations. We were given life! That is so incredible. Each day we live is so incredible. So if you can be wise enough to understand that. If you can be brave enough to truly chase your dreams. If you can be focused enough to unlock your happiness. Well, you might just become limitless. You might just end up changing the world for the better. And you might just end up living the life you dream of. __a.c.

What If I Told You?

What if I told you you had the power to change things?What if I told you all it took was some rearranging?

Of your priorities, goals, your thoughts and your actions?

Tell me now, what would be your reaction?

What if I told you that for every problem

There were at least two solutions to solve them?

What if I told you all the power lied in your heart?

Tell me now would you even start?

What if I told you your destiny’s much greater

 And I promise you’ll see it in the years that come later?

What if I said strong patience and faith

Were all that it took to win you the race?

Now what if I said I’ll be here all along

To help you get to the place you belong?

Would you even believe the words that I said?

Would you change how you think your life in your head?

Would you feel with your heart and listen to me?

Open it wide enough so that you could see?

Now what if I said all the set backs and troubles, 

All those days where your happiness fell down into rubble

Were actually tests, and detours of life

And not meant to bring you confusion and strife.

Would you hear what I’m sayin and change how you feel?

Would you take being happy as something that’s real?

Now what if I said when you’re lost but don’t know it

That God will step in, and your new path He will show it.

Those days where your heart sank deep down low,

Those nights where the tears finally showed,

Those sudden changes that took you by surprise,

The days you found out all those truths were just lies,

Were God’s way of showing you right from the wrong.

See you’ve been growing and learning these things all along.

What if I told you it will all be okay?

Would you even listen to any word that I say?

What if I said just have faith and believe?

Would you stay to talk or just get up and leave?

What if I said you can make a big change?

That all the hatred and sadness you could rearrange?

And make a positive impact, leave your mark on this earth,

That you’ve been destined for greatness even before your own birth?

Would you trust in my words?

See the truth in my eyes?

And believe that I’m not feeding you lies?

Could you do that for me? Or even better for you?

Cause I want you to believe

In yourself, too. __a.c.

Success

The most unsuccessful thing we did to ourselves was make money a requirement for success,

Because it has people chasing fake dreams while their real ones they suppress,

Which causes a lot of unhappy people and a world full of stress.

What? All so we can step out in a twelve thousand dollar dress?

To socialize with people we have to put a mask on to impress?

Rappers, ballers or a million dollar artist

Leave the only scapegoats for those classroom kids who weren’t the smartest.

So instead of being here to express our God given purpose

We chase a man made success that we know is gonna hurt us.

Money money won’t get you too far get you too far

Unless you’re flying in a jet or driving in your new Rolls Royce car,

But that’s physically speaking and physical strength

Will never be enough to carry you the length.

So chase your TRUE passions, whatever they may be,

Because the REAL definition of success is when your heart is happy.

The Believers

Think of all the people in the world you know to be successful; some you may even know yourself.
Now think of how they accomplished what they did,
Without any of your help.
You probably never believed in the dream they had,
Or gave a second thought to what they would do,
Yet somehow each one of them accomplished something great,
Without having the belief from you.
So if all these dreamers can find a way to accomplish something great
Without any of your belief, can’t you have the same fate?
Can’t you make your dreams come true when only you believe?
Isn’t your belief the only one you really need?
Aren’t all your visions achievable
When the whole world doesn’t see them clear?
Or is relying on what others think the only reason you’re here?
Is sitting back in the bleachers when you were written up to bat
A life that you’ll be happy with
On the days you’re looking back?
Aren’t your dreams worth your dreaming worth achieving, too?
And doesn’t that alone give you enough belief in you?
So don’t think about the doubters
You already know you’ll prove them wrong.
Just think about the belief that you should have had in you all along.
