The founding fathers and our ancestors before us knew there was something wrong with the livelihood in which they were living. They had the courage to fight against the normalities they were accustomed to in hopes of a better world for themselves and future generations.
We all know there is something in our lives that might hold us back from reaching our full potential. Whether it's our friends, our livelihoods, or our careers. These troubles have always been around in our lives and we think that because they've been there for so long, we have to get use to living with it until we die. My friends, I would like to be the one to tell you how wrong you are. If our ancestors thought that way we would be drinking tea on this July 4th day instead of celebrating our Independence.
We must have courage to fight the norms of our everyday lives in hopes of a better future. Of course its not going to be easy, you know how many people died in the war against the British in our quest for Independence? Their deaths do not go in vain neither do your pitfalls along the way, for they are just moments to build your character for a better you. Through belief in a brighter future and faith that you will get to where you are going when the time is right, you will achieve what you set out to accomplish plus more. America just wanted to be broken off from Britain's authoritative rule and now they come to us looking for advice.
You already know what is holding you back from being the person you want to become. Today I challenge you to take the step and have the courage to fight for that goal, your dream, your belief. Nothing worthwhile in this world comes easy so embrace the struggles as character building lessons instead of giving up. Envision what you want to be and when the time is right you will become it. So celebrate life today knowing that a better you is just around the corner. Today, celebrate your Independence Day!
