Do you ever struggle?
Of course, we all do! But what about getting into a time period where you feel like you are struggling a LOT? Like you can’t see the end of the struggle? What then? When do you give up?
How about NEVER???
Never give up in a struggle. Although it feels nearly impossible, remember that within the word “impossible”, lies “I’m Possible!” You can keep moving forward. Maybe it’s inches or even centimeters but it beats standing still!!!
Think about your struggles. You are hurting and pushing yourself forward. Willing yourself forward. Painfully moving forward every single step. And with every single step, you wonder if you should stop. You ask yourself if you’ve had enough yet. Why isn’t it easier yet? Why does everyone else seem happy around me? Is it just ME? Am I a failure?
And it that word, you have the choice to give up or to fight! Because within failure comes growth. Change happens; albeit slowly, it’s happening. You cannot see a flower grow if you sit and watch it hour by hour, can you? But is it NOT growing? Or is it growing so minutely, that you cannot SEE it with your naked eye but over time, it shows?
That is you today. That is your struggles and your rewards for just staying in the game. Moving forward, one step at a time is key. No, you are not running but you are making huge steps if you are focusing on never giving up.
The only true failure is quitting. Quitters never realize their true potential. They simply feel defeated and then begin again; only to quit where they left off before. That is not success. That can feel like insanity and rightly so, as it’s simply repeating the same exact process time and time again; expecting a different outcome.
But when you stick with it and you don’t give up even in the most challenging of times. You move ahead. You inch forward. And one day, you look back and realize just how far you have come. If you had given up, you would be in the same exact spot.
