It’s a balance between giving your all and pacing yourself. You fight for what’s perceived as impossible even though so many have done it before. Why not you? Every day could be that day when the key fits in the key hole and unlocks a door to a whole new realm. The one you’ve been trying to enter for years. It’s a situation of be careful what you wish for, it’s a damned if you do, damned if you don’t. And you know that you might get twenty turndowns before you get a yes. Even so, doesn’t make it easier to keep on pushing.
Someone has to succeed, why not you. Someone is more endurant, why not you. Someone must be there at the right time, why not you.
Maybe tomorrow is your big day. Maybe you’ll do exactly what is needed to be done. Maybe you’ll swipe out the competition and be the champ. Maybe you’ve got what they want right then right there. Maybe you’re the special one this time?
The worst nay sayer is the dark side of yourself. The side you don’t want to see, but those thoughts are just incapable to constantly keep locked in. Failures, struggles, not performing exactly on the spot, not delivering. All those things you wish you could control 100%… Just shut it out. Don’t even use it for motivation. Don’t thrive on it, don’t dwell on it. Just reflect it away. Let it not hit you.
Patience is what it takes. And working on it day in and day out. You will feel like a big fake occasionally. You’ll feel like you always have some excuse and you almost feel ashamed you haven’t made it yet. You’re not a talker. It is just in the cards for you SOON, just not today.
Every day is a new day that can be the day when the running uphills suddenly switched into flowing with the stream. Any day now can be the breakthrough. I know it sounds cliche, but it’s how it works. Suddenly all falls into places and you don’t know why.
Never be held down by people who don’t believe in you. When you doubt your own capacity or your shot at success, turn to those who support you, those who actually don’t just tell you what you want to hear but who tell you the right things…. There’s a difference.
Grasping every opportunity includes letting go of those that are not meant for you. How do you know which ones? You know it in your heart. You know when you ought to do something. Follow it. And some of the opportunities might feel they were lost, but you might have had to lose them in order to gain something better, something bigger….. Not every failure is a loss. Some failures create an empty space for success. If you store the failures in the space for success you will get cluttered. Pick and choose what you fight for!
Leap of faith and faith in the process. What you want is there to be taken, just one little piece at a time.
