Forget the Doubters

image

‘The doubters said, “Man can not fly,” The doers said, “Maybe, but we’ll try,” And finally soared In the morning glow While non-believers Watched from below.’~Bruce Lee

There will always be people who think that what you are trying to achieve is impossible. When you are in that situation say this to yourself: “Maybe, but I will try.” As Nelson Mandela rightly observed: “It always seems impossible until it is done.” It is your dream. Go for it.

Let Go of Letting Go Too Soon

image

Many people have their failures written on their very first attempt. They try something. It doesn’t work. They quit. They try something else. It doesn’t work. They quit. They become specialist quitters.

Success in life requires tenacity and perseverance. You cannot afford to be giving up each time you face a challenge. You must be able to hang in there even when everything seems to be falling apart. No one said it was going to be easy. Nothing in this life ever comes easy.

“There is no easy walk to freedom anywhere, and many of us will have to pass through the valley of the shadow of death again and again before we can reach the mountaintop of our desires.”-Nelson Mandela

The World Ain’t All Sunshine And Rainbows

crying soldier

“Let me tell you something you already know. The world ain’t all sunshine and rainbows. It’s a very mean and nasty place and I don’t care how tough you are it will beat you to your knees and keep you there permanently if you let it. You, me, or nobody is gonna hit as hard as life. But it ain’t about how hard you hit. It’s about how hard you can get hit and keep moving forward. How much you can take and keep moving forward. That’s how winning is done!”~Rocky Balboa

When life hits you hard and knocks you down to your feet will you have the courage to get up and keep going? It is not a question of if. It is a question of when. We all get knocked down by life one time or another. Only those who can pick themselves up and continue with the journey will be able to sing the song of success in the end.

Let Go of Yourself

image

You are the one who keeps getting in your way because of your need for security. You are so caught up in your comfort zone. Get up and take a risk. The greatest risk in life is taking no risk at all.

“Ships in harbour are safe, but that’s not what ships are built for.”-John Shedd

“Twenty years from now you will be more disappointed by the things that you didn’t do than by the ones you did do. So throw off the bowlines. Sail away from the safe harbor. Catch the trade winds in your sails. Explore. Dream. Discover.” – Mark Twain

3 Questions You Can’t Afford to Ignore Today

image

1. What is your goal?

Does your life have a direction or are you just drifting along? Are you simply moving with the flow of the wind? You cannot achieve a goal that you do not have.

2. At the rate you are moving now will you be able to achieve your goal?

Assuming that you have a goal, are you doing the things that are necessary in order for you to achieve it? Are you simply hoping for luck to come your way? With the things you are doing now do you think you will be able to achieve your goal? It is not what you wish for-it is what you do that counts.

3. If the things you are doing are not helping you to achieve your goal what changes do you need to make now?

Remember you are not a tree: you can change your life whenever you want to. If you keep doing what you’ve always done you will keep getting what you’ve always got.

It is important that you have the answers to these questions. You can’t afford to ignore them.
