I Was Lightning Before The Thunder

You don't have to be the best in the class. You just have to do your best.

Growing up was tough, and sitting in a classroom was even tougher for me as I dealt with ADHD and OCD. At the end of the day I think I could have been in the top 90% of my class grade-wise, but my mind was in so many places...

If you're a dreamer, don't stop dreaming.

I always knew school wasn't a fit for me. Learning in the classroom was (and still is) skewed too heavily on one type of learning, and it left others behind. It still surprises me to this day, though, when people think they are going to be successful just because they get A's on their report card.

But, I have met plenty of "Ivy Leaugers" who have not lived up to their potential. Just because you may seem to have all the makings of a success, it does not mean you will live up to it.

It's not where you start, but where you finish!

A lot of you know my favorite band these days is the Imagine Dragons. They are my go-to for morning workouts. The other day the song "Thunder" specifically caught my attention...

"Just a young gun with a quick fuse
I was uptight, wanna let loose
I was dreaming of bigger things
And wanna leave my own life behind
Not a yes sir, not a follower
Fit the box, fit the mold
Have a seat in the foyer, take a number
I was lightning before the thunder"

That song taught me this: You don't have to be the best in the class. You just have to do your best. 

To be successful all you need is a dream, and then you have to pursue that dream. Once you find something you love to do, that's the one thing you'll be the best at.

  • Hello, my name is Rachel Frye and I want to give this testimony in respect of Dr. Odunga who made me win $2 Million Dollars in Lottery by matching the 5 numbers for me. I am happy to be out of financial debt and be able to help my family in these seasonal period of fun and cheer. I contacted Dr. Odunga through Whats-App (+2348167159012) when I told him to help me win the Mega Millions and He told me that it would be spiritually checked if I will win the Lottery. When he informed me that I will not be able to win the Jackpot but I will win huge amount in the lottery I was not completely sad but had great faith in him. I live in Freeland, Saginaw County, Michigan and I would say it was pretty hard to send him the money for the spell before he gave me the winning numbers to play. He sent me the numbers and I played. The next morning after the drawing, I matched the five white balls in the Aug. 4 drawing to win $1 million: 11-30-45-52-56. Thanks to the Megaplier X2, my prize was multiplied to $2 million. Thank You Dr Odunga for this wonderful experience with you. You too can contact Dr. Odunga at his Whats-App +2348167159012 or Email: odungaspelltemple@gmail.com

  • No one else can help you fix your relationship and love problems better than Dr Isikolo
    It will amaze you to know that everything so many people have been testifying about DR ISIKOLO is nothing but the truth. My husband left me and my kids because we had so many fights and arguments. His people were also against my marriage with him. I loved him so much and had great hope that we will build a bright future together. I waited for 6 months and he never returned back to me. So i had to contact DR ISIKOLO who did everything in his power to reunite us and restore the love and happiness we once shared. He returned back home to us after 48 hours just as DR ISIKOLO assured me. You too can get this great help and live to be grateful to him because he never disappoints anyone. contact Him email: isikolosolutionhome@gmail.com You can also WhatsApp him on +2348133261196
