Yep, that’s right warriors. Never Say Never. Not to yourself or anyone else since that’s a dream killer. Warrior never said it but had it said to him. Alright, o.k., he never even liked pro wrestling at all so am sure he never thought of becoming one later in life. There were those who thought he’d never do much of anything or even succeed with his Ultimate Warrior character. He never wavered and disproved their blatant attitudes of never. I never pictured writing a blog, book, or even having a spiritual connection with Warrior at all. Things start out one way and then end up another. Consider some common “never” statements:
“I would never parent my kids that way! ( you might end up anyhow)
“I would never be intimate before marriage…” ( most are anyway)
“I am never having more than one child!” ( guess what? You may have more)
“I’m never getting another dog ever again!” ( Now, you have 2)
~~ Do you say statements like these? So many things in life start with us not wanting, saying, or doing but they might just happen anyhow.
Perhaps you even say those never statements to another. I’ve had a few said to me like:
” You’ll never get a tattoo.” ( I have 3)
“You’ll never put blond in your hair!” ( I did until recently)
“You’ll never eat avocados!” ( Yes, I do and love them)
I bet you don’t regret doing those actions that were first part of a never. It can be anything from going to an expensive restaurant, ( just NOT now, yikes…) traveling to a foreign country, ( Again, NOT now, ugh…) or even just binge watching your favorite reality show on Netflix. Fill in the blank:
“I would never…….”–Do you believe it? Most young girls or women probably think more about the big life stuff but guys– correct me if I’m wrong! Some girls will say: “I am never waiting until my thirties to start a family.” Or even: “I will never not be your best friend.” Life happens and situations are always very different. I actually said I always wanted 4 kids but now never can imagine that at all. Once I had 2 and with both being sick at birth, plans changed. Never say never comes in many ways and some we don’t even realize.
Just remember to attack and slay that never just like a warrior. Even the Ultimate one had to slay his teen nevers which then became his professional nevers said by some. We are not spiting here ( which I know sounds good) but doing it for ourselves. By doing it for YOU, it will allow your life to be free from all those never naysayers pinning you to the mat.
If you have those “never” lists, life isn’t a challenge to explore. It becomes a desperate attempt to conquer anything frantically that isn’t a never in the first place. Who says you will NEVER________. Forget it! If you say it, you will believe it. Don’t believe it or even what others are saying. Believe that you can and you will. Some goals may seem highly unattainable but it’s o.k. to keep dreaming…
When I have done some things in my life, it was me evolving and not necessarily proving someone wrong. Warrior was the same way and he wants his legion of fans to be also. It will fuel your fire to prove others wrong but always do it for YOU. I can’t say that enough. It’s like changing the word CAN’T into CAN or WON’T into will. Get rid of Never! It serves no purpose at all. Don’t use it for yourself and watch how you say words to others always.
*** I have something Extremely personal with my life that was brought into my awareness but NEVER thought it would be part of me. I laugh at it just a little but realize it’s importance and significance. It was something I kinda fought it most of the time but as it turns out, a real life changer that will forever impact and influence me. No, I’m not talking about these writings perse but just a simple word that encompasses me. It’s also not the word warrior for all you guessers… 😉 Such an interesting turn of life events as I frequently said how I’d NEVER want this.., Did have to do some research too! Now, I treasure it like nothing else, always have and always will… 💖***
So, warriors– never say never. Once you do, you’re setting yourself up for a loss and sometimes life will bite you in the A_ _! Take all those never statements and erase them from your mind. Even if someone issues you a never, fight like that warrior and clothesline it down! That never becomes a maybe and then perhaps even a YES! “Never will I” becomes “Always will I.” Just like I always believe and NEVER won’t!
P.S. I thought to use that photo of Warrior and Vince in the book “A Life Lived Forever” from RAW 4/7/14. People did caption that with “Never Say Never.” It’s way too personal for me since my brother had sent that to me right before Warrior past…. So, um– no… It is a great photo though!💙
P.P.S. PLEASE stay healthy warriors during this global virus…. WASH THOSE HANDS!!! 🚰😷👊🏻
