Hip Hop Affirmation: I run the point (take action) from where I am

I have a saying, “Run the point,” (take action) from where you are, with what you have.  

It is really easy to get caught up in what you don’t have and how imperfect you are instead of focusing on what you do have. 

I’ve had my share of not focusing on what I do have and instead focusing on what I am lacking or wishing I had.  When I get in that state it usually leads to some kind of panic. 

For example when I was in the process of getting certified to become a life coach.  I thought I would never get my coaching hours done and I wouldn’t pass the oral or verbal exam.  I thought my life would be over and I would end up homeless living in a van down by the river.  

Lucky for me as a coach in training, I had a coach.  I had someone who helped me to see that all I needed to do was take one step at a time.  They helped me to stop making up things about the future that was negative.  The chances of things being positive and working out well were just as likely if that is where I focused.  So I did.  

Needless to say my focus on what I had and where I was allowed me to actually enjoy the process and call on my creativity to pass my coaching exams with flying colors. 

Moves To Make

What about you? Where are you making up things that aren’t true.  How can you benefit from looking at things in a positive light instead of being negative.  

I know, I know, things haven’t worked out in the past.  But you aren’t the same person you were in the past.  All you can do is work from where you are at this point.

You’re not perfect, but you can put forth the perfect effort.  Need help?  Holla at your boy.
