Take Your Top Off!

Take your top off! A phrase that’s common during spring break or even heard late nights in major cities across the world. However, this is a phrase I think we should all adopt. We should live our lives with the tops off! Okay, I got your attention but now your wondering what exactly does that mean. This means we are taking “can’t, never and shouldn’t” out of our vocabulary.
Many times we are the ones that place limits on ourselves and our abilities. Each of us has the potential for greatness within us. The question is will you be one of the few that actualizes that potential or will you just sit on it. I’d like to say that we are all born on an equal playing field but that simply isn’t true. Life has a way of creating some unique challenges for each of us. The sooner we understand that the sooner we can move forward to unlocking our potential. We have the the power to choose whether we want to be complainers or changers.
I want you to realize that you are able to decide how you want to live your life. You can choose to spend countless hours that lead to days or even years complaining about how things are not going as planned, that your not where you want to be in life and how poorly others treat you or you can become a changer. The later implies taking your life into your own hands rather than letting others or life control you. Becoming a changer means being willing to hit the undo, restart and edit button on your life.
A true changer is willing to live life for themselves unapologetically. Are you willing to live your life with the understanding that bumps and barriers are apart of the journey. Will you stand strong during those times and realize that it is okay to have setbacks? When those setbacks come will you remember that what those edit, undo and restart buttons of life are for? Living life with a sense of confidence despite challenges embodies the true meaning of “taking your top off”. Are you ready and willing to take your top off? If you need assistance feel free to reach out. I am ready and waiting to help you unlock your potential and you take your top off!
