“Aspire” has to dictionary definition. One, to seek to attain a particular goal. And two, to soar to a great height. 

“So what happen between then (childhood) and now ( young adult/ adult) that you stop wanting to soar- when did you start being so irresponsible to yourself (Simmons p.2 pg. 19)?”

Kimora talks about how she doesn’t believe in being lucky, fair godmothers or men on white horse coming to save the day. I think a lot women my age believe put their faith in that a men builds them up. So  they do just enough to get by hoping  a man will come to  save them. Instead of putting the work for the things they want or needed.   Letting God building them up first because He builds you up you are built to withstand any and everything.

She believe that you have to want things for yourself, make things happen for yourself, and take risk to put your dreams into motion. We all day dream but there has to moment when we out growing the idea of just day dreaming. Turning those dream into a goal(s) creating a plan of action not just talking about it to anyone who will listen. With that be careful who you share you dreams with  because they can do two things support you or they’ll doubt you.

“You want caviar, so you reach for the top shelf and snatch the Beluga – its the best!” (Simmons p. 3 pg. 19)

We always say we want the best for ourselves yet we set these limitations as what can be consider the “best” for ourselves. We often

forget that God made us the head not the tail.  We should not strive to be rich with material things. By the way is something Kimora made clear in her book, she goes on to say if you get to a point where you can afford something then get the best but do it wisely. Strive to be rich in faith, love, peace etc. things that you can hold on when the going gets tough. Money comes and go but your faith continues to grow only if you allow it to.

To the best at something you have love what you do. Be willing to yo do it if you never saw a dime or never received recognition for it.

Be will to work for it. Shed some tears for it. Lose some sleep for it. Lose some friends or love ones for it. However, don’t put it before

God and be willing to do the same and go even further for HIM than you do for your dreams. For HE is indeed the dream giver. HE is our sources to fulfilling our dreams but we must be willing to submit ourselves to HIS will. Never have the attitude that you are going to do something and then ask God for help afterward and think its going to be “great.” Start … During… End God should be all up in it! If God can not be apart it you might let that alone!

I leave you with this thought. God is not the co writer of our lives HE the Author and Publisher. We are simply the words on the on the pages. Our lives have many chapter and those chapter tell our stories. But our stories already has an ending which can be found through the page of the Bible. But through our life experiences  and choice we decided what that ending will be. How we live our lives are the words within the chapters of our lives they ether reflect God or ourselves. What do yours reflect?

Keep following your dream, but never give up the chase of God! With Love, Dee.

What I took away from this part of chapter one is that if you want to be successful you need to  learn to try! Not that Kimora is telling me something I didn’t already know. Sometimes I do not try thing because I scared to fail or I think I need to finish college then i will try. But I  need to get up and get busy living my dreams even if they are not my reality yet. But don’t just dream set goals and work towards them daily.

I have to believe in my dreams first before I can ask someone else too. Then learn to have self confidence because when you are

confident in yourself you are able to believe in your dreams more. You began to understand that there is nothing you can’t do if you keep God first and apply yourself. Its  a course not that easy because there will be tough times but that why you have to keep God first in all that you do. When you find yourself not able to focus you know you can turn to God to keep you going and HE will give you all that you need to move forward. Most important make sure the plan you have for yourself is inline with the one God has for you. If it isn’t then make some changes! Because there is nothing better than what God has for you period!

Also, don’t wait for anyone to tell you have potential. You should be already tapping into your talents and master your craft. Don’t be in a rush take the time to know who you are first. Trust and know you are wroth getting to know verses some boy that may not be apart of your life. Yet, even after he is gone you will still be there so why start investing in yourself now than later. “Keep the momentum moving forward and know that it is easier to make adjustments once you’re in motion than if you’re frozen on the spot (Simmons p.1 pg. 19). Never allow yourself to come to a stand still keep moving and growing!

She start this part of the chapter her fundamentals of her ground zero for success that she has called “Grand Aspiration Theory”  aka The G.A.T and  they are the following:

  1. High aspirations breed frustration. 
  2. Frustration breeds motivation.
  3. Motivation pushes you to action-  whether you take tiny baby steps or huge strides.
  4. Action breeds confidence; you start to feel in control.
  5. Confidence is cumulative: Once you start acquiring it, you get more of it.
  6. Soon enough, you prove to yourself that you’re a star who can surmount any obstacle and achieve whatever you decide you want to achieve with your life. You’re on a roll!

I leave you with this thought. Your dreams or goals are not as far out reach as you think. When we were learning to walk it was not over night. Was it? No.  We stumbled and fail many times before we got our balance to take our first step. So we need to get ourselves balanced before we take our steps towards any of our dreams or goals. Don’t forget our step are ordered by God so don’t forget to follow HIS lead. If we’re following HIS lead we’ll about balance and we’ll be about step out on thing called FAITH!

Be Balanced. With Love, Dee.

P.s. If you know me you know Kimora is one of my fave people! don’t ask me why its taking me this long to read the book! but its amazing!!!!
