Code Blue: An Oath to the Badge and Gun Series

The Code Blue Series somehow became something bigger than me. The best way to describe it is looking at the world now and what’s going on, ...

Sometimes in life we compromise with people to make things better in certain situations. When it comes to our goals, we should never compromise and here's why:

1. You should always be around people who will push you to strive for greatness.
2. When you compromise, you're mentally telling yourself, your goals aren't important to accomplish.
3. Compromising your goals for someone else is being selfish to yourself.
4. Knowing yourself and how important things are to you is imperative.
5. You are preventing yourself from growth mentally by pushing your goals to the side.

Those are just a few but there are plenty more reasons but you guys get my point. The biggest thing that we all deal with later on in our lives is regret. When you have opportunities to do things that you want, do it then, not later because by then, you may not be able to do it.

If you have family and friends who are hindering you from achieving your goals, you have to take a step back and reevaluate how much value they provide to your life. If your significant other is preventing you from accomplishing your goals, you have to think are they providing value to your life now and if they will support you in your future endeavors.

Take the time to think about your life, who is in your inner circle and they're pushing you to be the greatest person possible. If not, then it's time to meet people who will provide that value that you need in your life. Sometimes the closest people to you are toxic and don't want to see you succeed because they can't do what you're doing.

Be good everyone and go accomplish your goals!

Insecurity is what keeps us from achieving greatness. I can live and die off of that because I already know that there are people who don't believe in me. Some have told me directly to my face and some I just can tell by their behavior that they don't BELIEVE in me. Some of us have snake skin and can handle that aspect of it and some of us don't quite have it.

Here's my thing, if you don't have snake skin, eventually you're going to have to develop it. Especially if you want to accomplish and achieve big things in your life. It's not going to be easy and it's all a growing process to develop snake skin and to only listen to your internal voice in your mind. Having self-doubt and uncertainty is part of the growth process and the journey, I go through it myself.

I only tell you guys this because this is my truth and I have no reason to lie to those who read my blogs. A lot of days aren't easy and I do question myself of why I'm doing all of this writing, blogs, podcasts, audiobooks and not getting the results I want. I'm only approaching three years of this journey so if I've come this far, why would I stop now?

If you don't BELIEVE in yourself, who else is going to BELIEVE in you? That's the key in all of this, understanding and knowing who you are and how great you can be. We're all blessed with talents, it's a matter of utilizing them to impact others and the world. So today I come to you and ask you, do you BELIEVE in yourself?

I hope you do because if you don't, I want you to start! Greatness comes with being self-aware of your strengths!

Be good everyone, and go accomplish your goals!

The biggest difference between people who say what they're going to do something and the ones who actually do it, it's they take action. You have to be willing to back up your actions and start doing the work to achieve the success? Too many people these days will talk about what they want to do or what they wish they can do but don't start at all.

Taking action shows you mentally that you are willing to do more than just talking about it. Do you find yourself always saying to yourself or others that you're going to do something as far as your goals and then never getting to it? Do you find yourself making excuses that you don't have time to get anything done?

Yeah I can see you nodding your head right now. Well, congratulations, welcome to being an adult and having to improve your time management skills. That's the name of the game when it comes to taking action, knowing what is important to you and what isn't. What I tell people all of the time is take time to think about the amount of time you waste each day, because we all do it.

How much time do you spend engulfed in other people's lives on social media? How much time do you spend playing video games or games on your technological devices? How much time do you spend watching, Netflix, Hulu, sports games or TV shows on your television? Are you willing to make the sacrifice of doing those things to strive for something that you love and want to do?

See, this is a blog specially for people who have goals and want to achieve them. This is a blog for people who are complaining about their life of monotony and aren't doing something about it. So here's my challenge to you today and going forward....take action and go do the work! It's not going to just happen and it's going to take a lot of work. It's going to take consistency everyday no matter if you work toward your goal for 30 minutes a day or 2 hours a day. Any amount of time spent toward your goals is moving you a step closer to achieving it.

Be good everyone and go accomplish your goals!

Happy New Year everyone! I hope you all finished 2018 strong and you're ready for the new year! I hope the holidays was good for everyone but now....it's time to get back to the grind. What's on the agenda for this year? Motivating you guys as much as possible to go work on your goals and dreams. Also sharing my journey with my books I've written on social issues going on in the world.

This year, my blogs will consist of keywords that will be in big letters which is what I want you to focus on. Sometimes we all need a little push and hopefully some of these blogs will resonate with you and will get you on the road to working on yourself and your goals. It's not easy, believe me because I go through my phases of not being motivated and not wanting to do anything.

So my question to all of you reading is, what are your goals this year? Did you notice how I said, "goals" and not New Year's Resolutions? I stopped doing New Year's Resolutions years ago and I started telling myself I'm always a work in progress every single day, and you are too. Have you sat down and worked on your goals for yourself? I hope you did because with all of the blog content coming, it's going to make you think about your life and your purpose.

There will be blogs on taking action, mental focus, your purpose in life, being true to yourself, embracing the journey you're on, finding your passion and so many more! I hope you guys subscribe to my blog and listen to my podcast, The Aquarianmind Podcast which is now on 5 platforms (Spotify, Google Play, Podbean, iTunes and Stitcher).

Let's start this year off right! Be good everyone and go accomplish your goals!
