Amazing
Aerosmith

Lyrics

I kept the right ones out
And let the wrong ones in
Had an angel of mercy to see me through all my sins
There were times in my life
When I was goin’ insane
Tryin’ to walk through
The pain

When I lost my grip
And I hit the floor
Yeah, I thought I could leave, but couldn’t get out the door
I was so sick and tired
Of livin’ a lie
I was wishin’ that I
Would die

It’s amazing
With the blink of an eye, you finally see the light
It’s amazing
When the moment arrives that you know you’ll be alright
It’s amazing
And I’m sayin’ a prayer for the desperate hearts tonight

That one last shot’s permanent vacation
And how high can you fly with broken wings?
Life’s a journey, not a destination
And I just can’t tell just what tomorrow brings

You have to learn to crawl
Before you learn to walk
But I just couldn’t listen to all that righteous talk, oh yeah
I was out on the street
Just a tryin’ to survive
Scratchin’ to stay alive

It’s amazing
With the blink of an eye, you finally see the light
It’s amazing
When the moment arrives that you know you’ll be alright
Oh, it’s amazing
And I’m sayin’ a prayer for the desperate hearts tonight
Desperate hearts, desperate hearts

Never said I’ll do it, never
Never gonna go, never

(So, from all of us at Aerosmith, to all of you out there, wherever you are
Remember, the light at the end of the tunnel, may be you! Good night!)

Quotes

Owning our story can be hard but not nearly as difficult as spending our lives running from it. Embracing our own vulnerabilities is risky but not nearly as dangerous as giving up on love and belonging and joy – the experiences that make us the most vulnerable. Only when we are brave enough to explore the darkness will we discover the infinite power of our light. – Brene Brown

Become Who You Were Born to Be: We All Have a Gift. . . . Have You Discovered Yours?

Become Who You Were Born to Be: We All Have a Gift. . . . Have You Discovered Yours? - Brian Souza
Become Who You Were Born to Be: We All Have a Gift. . . . Have You Discovered Yours? – Brian Souza

I always felt inside that I had a gift.  That there was something so much bigger that I was here for.   That I had a purpose.   That every single thing that happened to me happened to me for a reason.  That I was to learn from my experiences for this ultimate purpose.    Today I feel I have found it.

That is amazing to me because life can be so hard sometimes.   You ask yourself “why me?”  I am here to tell you that if you can see past the pain and the hardship that there is a buried treasure just waiting for you to see.   That you are more than what you are going through today.

I remember growing up in a one bedroom apartment with my mom, dad and sister.   One bedroom.   It was so hard to share a room with my parents.   I had no privacy.  No place to cry alone or even a place to study alone.   My sister and I celebrated when I was 17 years old when I finally got my own room.   My own room meant the world to me.

My room allowed me to study in peace.   I became a book worm.    I loved to study and learn.   Psychology was my passion.  I loved it!   I could not get enough of self help books.   They were my escape.

I remember in high school when I took a college now class on Psychology 101 and actually got an award.   Now why did I not study Psychology?  As much as I loved it, I felt I would go crazy if I studied it.   I decided to go to college and take what my sister took.   Fashion.  Yes Fashion!

I took fashion and I was miserable.   I was in a class with students that loved to talk about textiles and all i wanted to study was the human brain.    I was a C student.

In my first quarter in college I was in a group dynamics class where I was the leader and I had to decide on the topic for the group.   I was actually going to the Dominican Republic with my dad on a trip and I decided to get a couple of books from the library on how to choose a career based on your personality.    Since I was in fashion and didn’t feel it was a good fit, I decided to learn about what I was experiencing.

I studied Myer Briggs Personality Types.   I studied how important it is to wake up in the morning and love what you do.   After my research and talking to my dad about how unhappy I was with fashion, I decided to not go into Psychology but instead to do Marketing which is more Psychology and Business intertwined in my opinion.   Consumer behavior.

I became a straight A student in Marketing.   I realized then that loving the subject you study is critical to your success.

So after a few years of working, I ended up reading this book.   This book reinforced what I had learned in college.    It talks about the most successful people and how by them following their passion they became successful.   We all have passions.   The difference is that some people focus on what they love and some ignore what they love.

This book will help you re-focus on your true purpose.   What you love.

I truly believe that if you are reading this it is for a reason.   That however it is that I met you that at this very moment you were meant to read this.   Crazy as it may be for me or you.

This book made me pay attention to my true gifts.   I recommend this book to anyone that feels stuck.   I guarantee it doesn’t happen right away.   Happiness does not happen overnight.   It takes work.  It takes determination.  It takes struggle.

When you want something so bad.  You will make it happen.   There are no excuses.

It took me forever to even get to write this.  I read like a thousand books for me to break free and numerous mentors.    It took work.   A lot of work.  Self doubt.  Insecurities.  You name it.

-Rosemary


“Do you ever feel burned out, beat up, or just plain bored, wondering, “Is this all there is?” Do you ever feel trapped in a stressful job that leaves you unhappy and unsatisfied? Do you ever question if you’re doing what you’re supposed to be doing—if you’re fulfilling your life’s purpose? If so, you are not alone.

Like millions of Americans, Brian Souza found himself in this precarious position a few years back. Despite attending dozens of motivational seminars and devouring the best the self-help industry had to offer, Souza was left wanting more. The turning point came when he finally realized it wasn’t artificial motivation he was after; he was really searching for a legitimate reason to be motivated. Thousands of hours of research and countless interviews later, Souza finally uncovered the secrets he was looking for all along:

Just as musicians must make music, poets must write, and artists must paint, we all have a unique gift designed for a specific vocation that will bring both meaning and purpose to our lives. True joy and happiness will continue to elude us until we use that gift to become who we were born to be.

Become Who You Were Born to Be is a blueprint for discovering your unique gift and using it to realize your personal and professional potential. Souza’s program for achieving success in all areas of life reveals:

• Four steps to discovering your gift, uncovering your passion, and unlocking your purpose
• How to overcome fears and deal with change
• How to work passion into your profession
• Why a midlife crisis should be celebrated
• How to stop stressing and start living
• How to diagnose and fix flawed life patterns
• The untold secrets of top achievers

To illustrate his life-changing philosophy, Souza relates true stories of everyday people and world-famous celebrities—including Lance Armstrong, Amy Tan, Sylvester Stallone, Garth Brooks, and Oprah Winfrey—who became heroes by overcoming adversity and squeezing every ounce of opportunity from their gifts.” (amazon.com)

Quotes, Videos

Steve Jobs Stanford
Commencement Speech 2005
Connecting the Dots
Love and Loss
Death

This video is a must watch.   You see, sometimes in life we have no idea why we are put in situations or why we learn what we learn.   We sometimes go through a painful situation and don’t realize that that very painful situation has taught us a lesson we will never forget.   It’s amazing that by us connecting the dots we realize that it wasn’t by accident.    We may not be able to see it at the very moment we are experiencing the pain but as Steve Jobs said “You connect the dots looking backwards”.

When you think of Steve Jobs, you may have thought of this very successful rich man but when you heard him speak, you realized that he was human just like everyone of us.    Even his biological mom decided to give him up so that he would have college graduate parents yet life has a funny way of working itself out by giving him parents that did not graduate from college and high school.    The lawyer parents his mom thought he was going to have decided they wanted a girl last minute.    How all of this would have changed everything.

Connecting the Dots – sometimes we don’t realize how things will come together.   You connect the dots looking backwards.    Trust the process.

Love and Loss – Loving what you do and losing it.   Starting over is okay.    Rejection sometimes teaches you what you cannot learn if you are always successful.   Even if you are successful, failure or rejection can make you even better than you were before.   You just can’t quit.

Death – living as if everyday is your last and questioning if you are happy or doing what you love will keep you focused.

-Rosemary

Your time is limited, so don't waste it living someone else's life. Don't be trapped by dogma - which is living with the results of other people's thinking. Don't let the noise of others' opinion drown out your inner voice. And most important, have the courage to follow your heart and intuition. -Steve Jobs

The hardest prison to escape is in your mind

The hardest prison to escape is in your mind
The hardest prison to escape is in your mind

Do you live in your head? A lot of people do.  It’s time to work on your strategy to escape the prison of your mind.  It will take work.  It will take determination and you will get angry and frustrated because the bars are made of steel but you got this.  Figure it out!  You will think your not good enough at times and self sabotage but its all in your mind.  You can do whatever you focus on.  Escape and reclaim you life and soul.
