There is no deficit in human resources; the deficit is in human will.
Martin Luther King, Jr.
The only disadvantage we have in life is our inability to be creative. We keep telling ourselves, “if only this, ” or “if only that” as an excuse to keep ourselves off the hook. These limiting beliefs are preventing you from reaching your dreams. The world is full of things that will work against you, let not your will be one of them.
Be creative in your pursuit. Many paths can be taken to get from here to there. If a door is locked, find another. Come up with a workaround. Never lower your expectations because you feel that you’re missing the resources necessary to accomplish your goal. The only thing you lack is the will to be creative. As the great Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. said in the quote above, “the deficit is in the human will.”
There will be things that constrain you. Things that come up in life that will look insurmountable, but if you remember to check your will and refocus on what you want, you will find a way around. Resources are in abundance. They can always be found. The world is full of stories about people coming from nothing and accomplishing great things.
Don’t get sidetracked by your lack of creativity. Never stop working towards the life you dream about. An unrealized dream will weigh on you. It will suck the joy from your life and will leave you hollow. Become more. Work toward the best version of yourself. Then, help others to do the same. Pay your life forward. Imagine the world if each of us did that. If we all focused on being a better me so that together we could all build a better we. Think about it. How are you creatively chasing your dreams?
