Hip Hop Affirmation of the Day#59
I RATHER DIE ENORMOUS THAN LIVE DORMANT.”~JAY-Z (CAN I LIVE)
What gets in the way of living enormous? We all have big dreams and goals, “Yes, even you.” I’m the guy who can see past the things that hold you back and uncover the power of your dreams. That is why I am known as Ambassador Bruny. I’m the ambassador to those big dreams and visions that you have but may hesitate to share because you fear someone will laugh or tell you to, “get real.” I won’t lie, I’ll be the first one to tell you to, “get real”… get real busy planning and moving forward on making those big dreams come true.
My, “I’m not only the Ambassador i’m also a client” statement: 5yrs ago when me and my lovely bride wanted to get married, I was content with getting married at any church and having my reception at any location. That wasn’t good enough for the future Mrs. Ambassador; she wanted to get married in a castle! I let her know right away that I wasn’t going to Europe to get married and I didn’t know of any castles in the U.S. [with Brooklyn attitude]. As if having the pressure from her wasn’t enough, she also had the support of her maid of honor (Jessica) and even one of my best men (Annel). I was out numbered and after many discussions, I decided to move forward with the focus of giving my wife the wedding of her dreams.
A funny thing happened. The moment I decided to move forward, things started to change. Resources became available and doors started opening that would not have if I did not decide to put my full energy towards living enormous.
What’s the lesson for you? It’s what one gentleman explained to me as, “The corridor theory.” It basically states that you can’t see down a corridor by standing in the doorway. With all your planning and analysis, you still do not know what will happen until you start to walk down the corridor. When you do decide to walk down the corridor, doors will start to open that would not have opened if you did not walk down the corridor.
Affirmation of the Day: I will walk down the corridor of my life knowing what I want, but staying open to the new discoveries I will make along the way.
Question of the Day: What would it look like if you decided to listen to that little voice in your head and be enormous instead of dormant?
Action of the Day: Create a name for your “Enormous Self” and give it a mission sentence.
Here’s mine: “I am Ambassador Bruny and my mission is to have my presence inspire greatness so no one dies with their music inside them.”
Run the Point; from where you are, with what you have!
P.S. Just in case you haven’t figured it out by now, the picture above is of me and my wife at our wedding. It took place on July 5, 2004 at Oheka Castle in Long Island, NY
