I wanted my last post of the day to be something you could really think about while you’re cozying up in bed tonight before you put this day to rest. Nighttime is my favorite time to reflect. So what do I want you to think about?...
I want you to think about what the road to success looks like. I think we all fall victim to believing there’s a magical path we can take to reach our goals. A path where we find motivation and willpower and everything falls into place because we make the right choices. Ah, if only this place really existed. I want you to really understand that even when you do everything right and make all the right choices, you will still hit potholes and roadblocks along the way. Life throws us the unexpected and through no fault of our own, sometimes our journeys are abruptly interrupted. No, this doesn’t just happen to you. It happens to all of us! The road to success is a windy and bumpy one and there are no exceptions. 🚗
In order to get where we’re going, we will have to face many obstacles, some of which we will try to convince ourselves that we can’t possibly get through, that we can’t overcome. We will doubt ourselves and question our strength. The world will seem like it’s against us at times. It is in these times that we must continue on. We must refuse to succumb to our fears and emotions. WE MUST RISE UP.
No matter what journey you are on right now, you will undoubtedly encounter life-changing moments. It is in these moments that you must make a decision. Do you quit or do you press on? I chose to quit over and over again for more than 10 years. I found that no matter how many times I would pick myself back up and try again, I would be met with more fucking obstacles each time, some the same unresolved ones and some new. This road, this journey... it will NOT be easy. It’s not supposed to be. This journey that takes you through yourself and back again will at times rock your faith in yourself and you’ll find your cheeks wet with frustration. But these moments will MAKE YOU. They don’t have to break you. You have a choice.
