We should all live life with expectancy because we're all working towards something. How else can we visualize reaching our goals if we are not expecting it? Living with expectancy makes us eager to continue to work towards our goals and plans. When you stop expecting something, that means the motivation you once had either no longer exists or is at a minimum.
With most, expecting something whether for your birthday, a special occasion, or holiday, etc. it is almost always exciting.  So, try applying that same attitude towards your dreams and goals.  Expect yourself to succeed and accomplish what you want in life.  Expect yourself to be the motivating factor needed for you to continue the process. 
With the good, you must also expect the bad or delays; but even with that, you must expect that you will overcome it and succeed.

Do You: Trust

Do you trust yourself enough to do what's necessary for your purpose? Trust is a word often thrown around during negative conversations to express the disappointment. But that is not how it should be used for you. Trusting yourself to push past all that binds and restricts you is a positive manifestation of the results you work to see.  Do you trust the goals you set in place for yourself? Sometimes we change our minds or even our goals due to an upset or disappointment.  But, no one said it would be easy.  You must learn to trust yourself enough when it comes to pursuing your passions because you will have to revisit certain steps in your plan and revise them, but that won't mean to give up.  Once you are able to wake up everyday knowing you will do whatever is necessary, the trust within yourself will become stronger. 
Most assume they only have to trust others during the process to keep their word but trusting yourself is far more important than 'others.'  When others let you down and forfeit their word, it is then your own responsibility to continue on your path to achieving your goals.  If you simply relied on another's word and when "they" let you down, you quit, then how far do you really think you'd make it?
Your purpose has been designed for you and you alone so you cannot expect or trust it in anyone else's possession. 

When you trust yourself, you'll believe anything you tell yourself.

Your Name

The standard at which most people hold themselves is not as evident as it should be. It's hard to believe that so many people are more concerned about what others think than the person themselves. It wasn't always acknowledged, but over the years I learned that your name is the only thing that stays with you your entire life. How important is it to you to represent your Name with style and grace?  Your name precedes you before even walking into a room.  Think about how many times someone has mentioned a name to you and depending on how you feel about that person, you're either positive or negative.  Don't you want people to hear your name and light up?  We at SLM believe that each of us should make it priority to put honor and respect with our names.  When introducing yourself, speak your name with the utmost privilege and confidence.  
In school, we are taught that before beginning anything on a worksheet, we must first write our name. That is to ensure that whatever else follows on that sheet is a representation of us.  The work that we turn in will reflect our name.  It may not have seemed like a big deal back then but we are for sure held accountable for anything that has our name on it. 

So, remember, your name is your legacy that will still hold true even after you.
Do good with your name.

Elevate Your Surroundings

There's a recent article about the rapper Chamillionaire and him being spotted sitting court side at the Warriors Championship game. He was questioned by many about how he was able to afford court side seats when he hasn't put out any music in over 10 years and his response was simply he moved on and moved up. When he first started in the industry it was all about one mindedness and not realizing the real opportunity of surrounding yourself with people who you are aspiring to be. He said he moved to different places around the world and found people in the tech industry and began investing. He said seeing younger people have more than what he had only motivated him to invest and research different outlets to gain more financial in-dependency. No this article is not about Chamillionaire, but it serves as an eye-opener for those of us who continue to surround ourselves with people who are content with where they are in life sit around with no intentions to elevate themselves and better themselves. It's often easier to maintain the friendships, relationships, or current job that you have because you're comfortable and you know your way around rather than seeking opportunities that could potentially put you in environments and surroundings that will surpass your initial goal.

Life is about learning and seeing what you can accomplish when you grasp the fullness of each opportunity.  Open your mind to the bigger picture; don't limit yourself because you may not 'know it all.'  Take time to learn.

Passionate Effort

Passionate means Showing or caused by strong feelings or a strong belief
Effort mean a vigorous or determined attempt

For those of us wondering why we can't seem to catch a break and are constantly finding ourselves with a 'lack there of."  We want you to consider the possibility that you have settled into mediocracy with the belief that-that is all you have to offer and all you will receive. But, I believe that each one of us has a purpose but it's going to take a whole lot of passionate effort to regain our worth and value. You see, often times when we are in positions or circumstances that we believe do not "deserve" our best effort, we simply downgrade the opportunity, thus becoming content with mediocre work. When, in fact we should always give our best effort in everything we do. Being passionate about something guarantees our best results so why at any moment would you even accept less than that? If you are to be held accountable for all that you do; homework, job duties, relationship/friendship, etc, how could you ever be okay with putting your name on anything less than great? Push past your own desires and force yourself to only give the best of you. No matter what it is, be passionate about the work your hands complete and put forth your best effort. Everything we do in life is a process but don't add to the pressures and difficulties of it due to your lack.  Be confident in your efforts and do all things with passion.

Do What YOU Love!

With social media at an all time influential high, it is imperative that we at Skyy Level Media remind our readers to DO, YOU. It is not enough to simply copy another's work, style, vision, path, etc. When there is so much space and opportunity to create your own. Doing you does not mean ignoring everyone else; it does take a team and assistance from those around you to help you get to where you want to go. Remain the head of your goals and vision without sacrificing it for the sake of others on your team. It's a beautiful thing when you can accomplish what you set out to do without hindering your leadership role and skill development. Doing you is an empowering movement that will provide you with such high skill development that you will have no choice but to tap others in and help them do them. It only takes a moment to pour into others like you have been poured into.

Nature can change seasons without force and reconstruction from man.  Trees specifically go through a transition each season that allows them to experience the beauty of being full of leaves and flowers as well as the ugliness of being naked, bare, and leave-less. Just like nature and the trees, we as humans need to adapt a lifestyle of knowing when to accept change and let go so that we can go through the necessary seasons.  Why do we fight so hard to hold on to the relationships/friendships, jobs, etc. that are doing more damage to us than good?  If we could imagine for a second recognizing the changing seasons and by nature, so calmly releasing that which no longer is needed to grow and become wiser. 

It is holding onto unforgiveness, hate, anger, being vengeful or anything else that takes up so much space that there’s no room for forgiveness, peace, kindness, love.

Speak Up For Yourself!

It is possible that many people don’t always realize the importance in speaking up for yourself so we are here to make sure that you begin to develop this ever so life enhancing skill. It is disheartening when you see people not being confident enough or willing to speak for themselves and what they want.  It is also frightening to think that some people would rather sit and accept whatever is given or thrown at them.  Our question to you is, why?  How could you allow something to continue when you know it isn’t what you want or desire?  And God forbid, you wait around for someone to come and be that voice for you.

In the society we are in, there is not telling what you will end up in if you never gain enough strength to speak up for yourself.  There is nothing wrong with having a voice for yourself and going after what you want.  It is a blessing to wake up every day with a voice that works, so why not utilize it.  You’d be surprised to learn that some many things that can go away with just a conversation. Your voice is to defend you and bring forth that which you seek.  You can’t expect to be heard if you’re always quiet. When you are chasing your dreams and goals, your voice will come in handy.  Be sure to speak with confidence and boldness. If you have to believe in what you want in order for others to take heed to your words.

When you speak, be firm, yet respectful.
When you speak, be specific about what it is that you seek.
When you speak, be sure that you will receive what you ask.

Your voice may shake, but speak your mind.  Your future lies within your voice.
There is no harm in speaking up for yourself; it will only strengthen your voice.

STOP Caressing Potential

According to Webster’s Dictionary, the definition of potential is existing in possibility.  Sound fun?  Not really.  Why settle for the "okie doke" of just existing with all of life’s possibilities when you can live in the reality?  That would be like walking past all your dreams every single day, but never being able to have them, feel them, be them.  We believe there are people content with caressing their potential, because it gives them something to hold on to.  We also believe there are people who acknowledge they’ve been caressing their potential because they simple do not know what to do with it or what to do next.

After realizing you’ve been existing in possibility, create a plan on how to make it your reality.  What is it going to take from YOU to actualize it?  Begin to see the process unfold and you ACTUALLY obtaining that which you’ve been working towards. It is tangible!

Potential is to ignite your passion to get you motivated and do the work. Potential is not the finish line, that is unless you decide to nothing with it.

Potential should not be placed in a beautiful decorative frame to be looked at and adorned, yet it should fuel you to accomplish your dreams and goals.

We want you to be excited about your potential, but we want you to be more passion driven and focused to complete the task.

You Are A Success!

No time for disappointments when you are constantly working on your dreams and goals. We understand it is difficult to swallow an upset when all efforts were put into succeeding.  We are here to remind you that giving up is not an option. When all your optimism and hopefulness seems like they failed you, worry and doubt not. You are closer to your ‘hooray’ moment. There's only one thing that could potentially keep you from ever reaching that point and it is, quitting.

Your best option is to use each disappointment as a stepping block or lesson learned. You have a guiding light, so follow it.  Surround yourself with people of like mind who see you striving towards success and want to support and help you obtain it. It may have been fun hanging with the crowd that stood still, but stop it; when you know better, you do better.  So, when you cannot see better results from the circle you are in, simply draw another one. 

Just like there is no time for upsets or disappointments, there is also no time to be wasted. 
You must take each stride with confidence and a conquerors’ attitude. Know that you have worked hard for your hooray moment and one or two tiny hiccups will not keep you from living your dreams. 

We believe you are a success story in the making. Believe it for yourself.

Time Waits for None

Time passes no matter if you're happy or sad. 
We believe that most are happy or have joy when they are living passionately in which they don't pay attention to time. We've noticed we're only sad or disappointed about life when we find ourselves being bored or unfulfilled.  There may be many (temporary) moments you experience that can cause an effect on the way you view your life, but the key to remember is it is just temporary. Waking up each new day gives you another opportunity to put your best attempt to work, so don't waste the chance on reliving yesterday's temporary moment. 
We can choose to be at peace and happy every day, so why choose anything else? 

Be confident in your decision to "try again."  
Be confident in your decision to "make it happen."
Be confident in your decision to "succeed, no matter what obstacles come your way."

It will be those little daily reminders that make a huge impact in your desire to meet your success. You can't put pressure on yourself because of time or the lack thereof. Time is only there to keep you on track with your priorities, so don't waste it. 

If it brings you peace, do it.
If it brings you happiness, do it.
If it allows you wake up with a smile, do it. 

There is no limit as to what you can do in a day; we put the restraints on our own agendas by watching the clock. Be responsible of your time.

Remember, time waits for none, so do not expect it to give you a signal as to when it is your time.

The Atmosphere

Once a thought is released into the atmosphere it now has room to grow and manifest.  But, it will continue to float among the atmosphere until you activate it. The thought is only an idea; something so creative and unique.  It will not become tangible until you work it; ‘Faith without works it dead.” So, imagine having an idea for an invention, did you speak it out of your mouth? Yes? Okay, so the easy part is done; you’ve released it into a realm where only aspirations and dreams can reside.  Now, what do I do with it, you ask? You work it! Put some action where only physical entities can be.  Your Faith is equivalent to the creativity floating around (just waiting to be realized and actualized); it can’t be if nothing is working on it.  And just like any floating thing, it can become entangled in a web i.e. your other creative thoughts that remain idle because no action was given to them or even worse, they’re dead.  Or they can be snatched by someone who had a similar idea and is ready and willing to actualize it.  You see, just as exciting ‘thinking’ about what we want to be or do is, it’s more exciting ‘doing it’ to someone else.  We aren’t the only ones God blesses with creativity, inventions, talents, and ideas but I often see that we are the only ones not Faithed enough to do something.  Stop letting, better yet, stop allowing your thoughts to remain in that pretty, unrealistic dream bubble.  Let them free and Faith Up!  Actualize what you want to see.  Actualize what you to be.  It only takes a little bit of Faith and a whole lot of WORK.  Be dutiful and get it done!  If not, be my guest to watch it be snatched up and activated by someone who went for it.
