Long Shot – Katy Perry, and Kelly Clarkson

Just a heads up Katy Perry and Kelly Clarkson both recorded this song. It was written by Katy Perry. I really like both versions, so I featured both of them in this post.

To me, this song is about chasing after your dreams no matter how small the chances you have of exceeding it. You still chase after your dream no matter what.

It’s like in football, when the quarterback has to throw the go ahead, or tying touchdown for the game across the field. Yes, it might not be very likely, but there is still a chance of it happening.

We shouldn’t give up our dreams, or no longer pursue them, because there are challenging. We should chase our dreams, because that it what we are meant to do with our lives. If we don’t go after our goals we will more than likely regret not going after it.

“It’s a long shot, but I say why not
If I say forget it, I know that I’ll regret it
It’s a long shot just to beat the odds
The chance is we won’t make it
But I know if I don’t take it, there’s no chance
‘Cause you’re the best I’ve got
So take a long shot”

-Katy Perry, Long Shot

Fuel Your Passion

Don’t let your fears hold you back from your true desires. You are born to do great things. Keep on fueling your fire of greatness. Never let someone put out your fire, or even yourself for that matter. Everyone can achieve their goals, if they keep on working towards them, and never give up.

Keep on moving forward, even if it is small baby steps. Any forward progress is still progress.

Thrive

Here is your weekly quote, always remember that the power is always in you, no matter what. You might not have enough energy today, but tomorrow is always a new day, so learn to not be so hard on yourself.

The chapter we are going through in our lives, is different from someone else’s lives, so it is a waste of energy to compare yourself to someone else’s chapter. Focus on you, and keep on thriving for greatness. Never sell yourself short.

Self Worth

Here is your weekly quote to help you get by.

I love this quote because it reminds me to always remind myself of my self worth. You are stronger than you think you are. Always remember how truly amazing you are. You were sent to be a part of the world, and the world can’t exist without you.

You should surround yourself with the people who bring out the best of you, not the worst in you. You should hang around with people who see your value and purpose.
