“Stay away from people who make you feel like you’re hard to love”

There is no limit on how far i will go for a person that appreciates my efforts and sacrifice. but there is also no limit to how little i will do for someone that does not show any form of appreciation for everything that i have done to help them achieve their goals.

“Sometimes you just have to turn around, give a little smile, throw the match, and burn that bridge”

“Sometimes burning bridges isn’t a bad thing… It prevents you from going back to a place you should never have been to begin with. ”

“They say don’t burn bridges you may have to cross later. I say I don’t mind swimming if the bridge was messed up to begin with”

People in your life can be a catalyst for disaster or a catalyst for progression and limitless achievements. I have learned through the years that i can tell where a person is and will be in life based upon who they choose to surround themselves with and how much drive they have to pursue those that help them and who they choose to allow to continuously poison and damage their emotional, financial, physical, and spiritual lives. I have watched people permit others to drag them down with them, hold them back and also pushed them and elevate them to the stars.

Its all your decision. I never blame other people for where i am in life. because you always had the power to change where you are and who you associate with. to accept people who appreciate what you do for them or hang around people that will never show you that you matter. I have watched people become emotionally drained and not be able to focus, motivate themselves, or concentrate on what they need to do to achieve their dreams because they often dwell on the ‘what ifs’ and the ‘shoulda, coulda, woulda’ to people and events that they should have never wasted a moments thought or efforts in.

I have been very blessed to cross paths with some amazing people and also to cross paths with people that have taught me who to avoid and who to teach others to turn away and run from if they desire success. sometimes its not just a matter of who you work with but also knowing who not to work with so you do not waste the time you could have invested in becoming close to those people that make you feel like you matter. People that help you, advise you, and show you love in improving yourself and your life. Teach you how to care and hope again. People that show you through their actions that the world is filled with great, beautiful and amazing people. People that invest their time, money, emotions, feelings, and self in you. People that give new meaning to going the extra mile and showing you that their is no distance too close or too far to prove their appreciation for everything that you do for them.

I want to thank all my friends and family that have always been their for me. And I will continue to strive to be better and build an empire to better our lives and prove my appreciation for everyone that has believed.
