Keep On Moving Don’t Stop

13 10 2011

One of my absolute favorite songs from the 90’s is the song by Soul II Soul called Keep On Moving and the main verse of the song is – Keep On Moving Don’t Stop.  Thinking of this makes me realize one powerful thing; no one starts a race at the finish line. Just close your eyes and think of that for a second – no one starts a race at the finish line –  isn’t that powerful!!! Instead a race is run as you keep on moving and don’t stop!  I believe this is powerful because so many of us never reach our full potential because we never even step up to the starting line to start the race, let alone finish it.   I believe we are each born with natural gifts and abilities and until we begin to tap into them, we will never fully, we will never begin to move toward that finish line which is completely realizing our potential or our purpose.

The Webster dictionary defines potential as existing in possibility: capable of development into actuality.   So if potential is possibility then it is up to each of us to make it possible, tangible, real in our lives.  It definitely means we are capable of cultivating our potential to actually allowing ourselves to fully grow into the people we are each meant to be!    I underlined the word capable because if we are capable then it really is up to each of us to not just show up to the starting line but to actually run the race in order to be ALL that we are meant to be!   It is up to each of us to believe in our gifts and talents, even if no one else does, after all we MUST believe in ourselves first before anyone else will.  Let’s be real, often times it is so much easier to see the end then it is to see how the heck we will get there.  We get caught up in the notion of getting there.  Sometimes the journey seems so huge, massive that it is too big to accomplish. However instead of focusing on where we are, if we can focus on the finishing line… can help us stay excited, motivated and dedicated to continue to keep on moving. 

Sometimes for me, it takes me knowing that the creator believes I can get there, that helps me to accomplish major goals.  I say that because I truly believe that if you have a HUGE desire that God is who put it there and if he believe you can do it, than who am I not to believe it!  So if God forms each of us with the end in mind, then HE knows we are capable of getting to that finishing line, after all why would He give us potential that we are not able to realize?  That is why I started today’s blog by saying that no one starts at a finishing line, instead we have got to make a choose to get our butts to the starting line and get in motion toward making things happen.  We HAVE to believe in our dreams, gifts, goals and aspirations enough to keep on moving and don’t stop.  NO MATTER WHAT! It is with confidence, determination and perseverance that we will be able to make it to realize our potential.  So let’s get moving in the direction of our goals, ambition and purpose.  It all starts with just one step.  If you are ever going to develop that potential, that seed that God has planted in you, you must make up in your mind that you are NOT going to quit and that WHAT IT TAKES you will see it manifest in your life.  That is exactly how you Keep on Moving Don’t Stop!

  If I have the belief that I can do it, I shall surely acquire the capacity to do it even if I may not have it at the beginning. – Ghandi

 Make the most of yourself by fanning the tiny, inner sparks of possibility into flames of achievement. -Golda Meir

 As is our confidence, so is our capacity. – William Hazlitt

A dream doesn’t become reality through magic; it takes sweat, determination and hard work.  – Colin Powell
